For several years now I've been curious about the susceptibility of our consciousness.  Everything from the difference between someone saying: "oh you look great today" vs. "oh, gosh you look terrible!" for instance, and the feelings that follow.  Words and what we say and share with one another have power.

Recently I watched The Great Hack, a documentary on Netflix.  It asks the fundamental question of are we being manipulated ...and by who (whom?).  It explores the work of the Cambridge Analytica company and how they influenced the last presidential election in the US...hired by the Trump campaign...and in the UK with the Brexit vote by targeting specific voters, in the US in particular swing states in specific counties, with tailor made ads.  And how they practiced in smaller countries, even inventing what look like grassroots organizations that inevitable sway the outcome.
