This is the biggest type of persuasion and the most dangerous, the reason I say this because not only do people judge themselves on how they look but they judge everyone else. That why there are so many kids these days starving themselves, or taking steroids, or being picked on because they don’t have the perfect body.

Each one by themselves is not harmful, but if you are watching a movie and during the movie you have commercials and you switch the channel to a TV show or pick up a magazine, you are bombarded with it and subliminally you don’t realize but your mind is making mental notes of each one and that’s how persuasion

When a super injunction is granted, newspapers cannot report any accusations against a person, nor are they allowed to inform the public that an injunction was requested. Many celebrities, especially footballers, take out super injunctions because they have cheated on their partners and don’t want their popularity to decrease. But surely the public should know that these people aren’t all what they portray themselves to be? When a super injunction is granted against someone, the victim doesn’t realise that the other person involved gets all the attention and public harassment.
