There’s a closing technique in sales that is known as the “assume close”, as in the closing of a sale, the ultimate objective of the salesman. This is very powerful and falls in line with the ideas of affirmation and visualization, but is even more subtly subversive as a social-psychological technique. It doesn’t matter if it’s for so-called “good reasons”, to use this device on anyone can be extremely devious and is at the very least manipulative and dishonest.
That’s what humanity is being played by.
