A Social Science Experiment Reveals that Not Everything Is As Real As It Seems In Every Protest
NEW YORK - Nov. 17, 2016 - PRLog -- A new experiment shows that people are willing to go to protest for a fee which indicates that many of the protesters do not have a genuine interest or reason for all the negative energy they expend during the activity.
This research was initiated taking cues from the methods and tactics of great social influencers such as Edward Bernays who were able to change opinions on a mass scale through the use of propaganda and media influence. Edward Bernays, an Australian-American pioneer, popularly known as "the father of public relations," is a pioneer in the field of public relations. He combined the ideas of Gustave Le Bon and Wilfred Trotter on crowd psychology with the psychoanalytical ideas of his uncle, Sigmund Freud. His ideas and that of his likes who were able to make a significant impact in history using the media and journalists as powerful tools are today influencing our views on protests.
With so much energy being expelled in the anti-Trump protest, an experiment was formulated using social science to see if all the anger and other negative energies exerted can benefit the person who they are protesting. To conduct the experiment, the website www.ProtesterOnDemand.com was designed and advertised on Craigslist for people who are interested in working as protesters to send in pictures of them protesting with their signs. The website was also posted on subreddits which attract anti-Trump individuals with money.
The result from this simple, yet important experiment was overwhelming. Within a short time of posting the ads, both people who want to work as protesters and those who want to hire protesters started showing great interest. While individuals who were interested in becoming protesters started sending in their details, those who wanted to hire protesters were also making inquiries on how to hire them.
The fact that people are ready to go for protest for a fee and others want to hire protesters is an indicator that protesters may not have a genuine interest and reason for all the energy they expend. And this goes a long way to show that nothing is as it seems.
