In the 1920s, the nephew of Sigmund Freud, Edward Bernays, was one of the pivotal figures who helped to develop the concept of manipulated “democracy”. Bernays has been called the father of modern-day public relations.

Bernays developed a strategy to manipulate the gullible public by advertising subliminally to tap into the unconscious of repressed animal instincts, such as sexual desire. Bernays proposed similar techniques into politics through propaganda in various guises, using the mass media to manipulate populations.
Bernays’ clients included some of the largest US corporations.

The main difference today is that the DARPA developed internet has made manipulating techniques more efficient: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/l...-a8287731.html
