    In my company, it used to be called Employee Relations. When they changed it, I knew the end was coming.

    it is.

    its comprehensive. covers a ton of ground, and is very accurate.

    it explores the upsides and the downsides. its not a propaganda doc, though to some it may appear that way at a glance if you dont give it a chance to develop. it is truth...

    imo, it really needs to be taken as a whole, but i acknowledge, few if any will likely sit thru it.

    if you have an interest in human nature, it is a must see.

    In the same vein, and of equal importance I also recommend this one.

    I work for a massive fortune 50 and our Human Resources dept is basically a bunch of glorified secretaries. They don't really have a purpose other than paper work and answering questions about benefits, policies etc.

    I'll try to take a look later, but I can't promise that one.

    Oh I know, I'm just saying ours isn't a secrete plot to destroy the world. Which is what I'm assuming the video is about. Of course I didn't watch it.

    Its about the history and reasoning behind it. Just like the video I posted is the history and reasoning behind advertising

    I remember back in the 70's some billionaire dehumanised his employees by making them wear shirts that said tool on them. People thought he was so great.....

    "It... is very much a method of control...

    [The principle behind] behaviorism is the whole idea of modification where you can use various kinds of techniques to modify peoples' behaviors so that they stop doing what you don't want them to do and they start doing what you want them to do.

    This applies equally to all psychological paradigms, and includes modification to treat and help, not simply to control.

    Human Farming.

    Let the humans feel like they are 'free-range' and they'll be less likely to uprise.

    you are correct...but treating and helping is indeed a form of controlling.

    "control" as a standalone word or concept is neutral. it is only when applied within a context that it becomes perceived as a negative or positive.

    that's my interpretation at the moment anyway.

    Yes, absolutely. For example controlling someones depression. That's positive. Commonly control is seen as negative or stifling or suspicious.

    When I quoted this:

    "It... is very much a method of control...

    [The principle behind] behaviorism is the whole idea of modification where you can use various kinds of techniques to modify peoples' behaviors so that they stop doing what you don't want them to do and they start doing what you want them to do.
    "

    I was mostly pointing out the text now in yellow, but wanted it in context.
