Examines the history of subliminal messaging in America and the ways in which we are being subconsciously manipulated by advertisers, pop-culture, corporations, our military, and politicians. These civil-rights violations have a profound and long-term effect on each and every American citizen in our country. According to many authorities, since the late 1950's subliminal content has been tested and delivered through all forms of mass-media including Hollywood filmmakers Alfred Hitchcock and William Friedkin. But, unlike other current affairs facing our society, such as the environment, the "War on Terror", or the declining economy, we often downplay, (or even totally dismiss), the overwhelming influence and corrosive nature of mass-media - all for the sake of entertainment and escapism.
