In Richard Condon's 1959 thriller the "Manchurian Candidate," a man is brainwashed into becoming an unwitting but deadly sleeper agent. The novel and the films it inspired have long intrigued those who followed the plot, leaving them wondering if it's really possible to turn someone into an assassin against their natural, not-so-lethal will.

"Brainwashed," the next episode of Discovery's "Curiosity" series, puts that premise to the test.

there has been a progamm about it, ppl that are in that buissnes, say it is imposible, it is only in the movies. but there is no need, look at islamist radicals, they are willing to kill and die, they are brainwashed since birth. you can also make ppl kill, if  their loved ones life depends on i, happened before. kidnapp their family, and they will do anying you tell them so you wont hurt their family.,

RESIDENT TROLL.

Read this report by UNICEF on people killing their own children because they believe they are witches. Is it brainwashing, sure it is.  Religion is one of the greatest ways to brainwash people to commit murder.  They even use in the army, the whole God and country thing.

you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.
perhaps you can brainwash a person into believing something, or cause them to be unbalanced or psychotic, and you may be able to plant suggestions, but ultimately that person decides whether they will kill or not.

You can implant thoughts ,ideas and make your husband do things after they have orgasimed and gone to sleep.
Its because men enter a state of complete and utter unconciousness and relaxation.

Brainwashed?   i would say any form of cultural conditioning that convinces someone that killing  is the "right"  thing to do  is akin to 'brainwashing' .
Any soldier, anywhere,  , however good his intentions, has been culturally conditioned  to be a killer.

yep .. very very possiable under one condition that the person they need to be brain washed should be stupid

by the name of Allah the Gracious the Merciful
Say, "I seek refuge in the Lord of daybreak From the evil of that which He created
And from the evil of darkness when it settles And from the evil of the blowers in knots
And from the evil of an envier when he envies"
truthful was Allah The Most High And Great

So, I watched this show on Sunday(?) when it aired. They started with I beieve 116 potential people they were going to test for brainwashing as a Manchurian Candidate. When all testing was done, they only had participant they thought could very possibly be hypnotized into pulling off a murder under post-hypnotic suggestion. He did pull off the assassination (with an Airsoft gun) and apparently he had no memory of doing it afterward. When he told what hed done, he was clearly shaken, really freaked out and somewhat angry.

I was pretty surprised, it did seem genuine. It was an interesting show.

There are too many examples of genocide, mass murder and massacres. It's easier to brainwash the masses to kill 'en masse', instead of just one person to kill another?

Logic would tell you, no.

The question is, is to take a seemingly reasonable normal individual, and make them commit the most heinous crime, for no apparent motive.

That, is the question.

Wouldn't say Derren Brown was definitive proof to be honest. He "predicted" the lottery numbers once, but I havn't managed it yet! Also dont forget he's an ILLUSIONIST.

Anyway, I thought the US were at this in the 60's? I thought they'd admitted they had a sleeper program?
