It's all about the conditioning.
If you watch the strip search call prank, the girl in the video does not seem like the type of girl to take her clothes off, do naked jumping jacks, and then perform a sex act on a complete stranger. Even had an authority figure told her to outright over the phone, the chances are she would initially have resisted if that was her first command, but that is not what happened.
McDonald's Stripsearch Prank
First she was told she was being held due to a stolen purse, then they got her to remove some articles of her clothing, but not all. Then a male was invited in to be guard, then he was told to have her perform little acts of compliance, all the while crossing the line. Even when the man's finance came in and saw that the girl was clearly naked, she turned a blind eye, because she believed an authority figure was pulling the strings over the phone. Remember they never see the authority figure, it did not even turn out to be a real authority figure, just some guy over the phone pulling a prank. This prank happened all over America, and almost every time, similar compliance was garnered. It shows that people will do what they are told, they will comply.
The Stanford Prison Experiment
In the second video the kids are told that it's an experiment, they agree to it, but in less than a week, they are conditioned to think of themselves as prisoners, to snitch on each other, and the reason that the experiment ended early was the fact that the experimentor became caught up in the act, and the guards when they thought that no one was watching, were getting the prisoners to perform degrading acts, and synthesized degrading actions on each other. It took less than a week to condition them into compliance.
Many people on these forums talk very bravely about how they would not be conditioned how they would not comply if it came down to it, and there are some who really would likely not comply, but there are so many others that would comply, that would go along with doing what they are told without question. The airport body scanners are the first time as a society that you can see this in action. You have TSA agents doing what they are told, even if they disagree or think it's wrong, they are going along with it. But then you have citizens who are going along with it and doing what they are told. They are being conditioned to obey. Stand with your hand behind your head. Stand still raise arms, and let someone touch you in an uncomfortable, or degrading manner. Let the same be done to your child.
Obedience to fake authority
Many don't see it yet, but this is the early stage of conditioning. Once this is a success and goes through without any resistance, then other measures will be implemented. Many Americans can not see themselves as the type that would willingly be herded onto cattle cars, and lead off to reeducation camps, or holding cells, but the reality is, they are so conditioned, and are being so conditioned, that tomorrow if an authority figure told them that is what was needed, or necessary for the good of the country, the chances are that they would comply, much like they sheepishly comply in line to naked strip searches, degrading pat downs, and their children having to undergo the same. The young are being conditioned for compliance, by following their parents example. What fine examples are being set for the upcoming generation.
