This book is a perfect place to start.’ Rory Sutherland ‘Free speech and free minds are inextricably linked and this book will help you achieve both.’ Toby Young, General Secretary of the Free Speech Union ‘During the pandemic, governments worldwide deployed sophisticated behavioral and psychological techniques. Now that Pandora’s Box has been opened, powerful entities will undoubtedly continue to use these tools to manipulate unwary populations. The best way to be immune to these techniques is to understand when they are being deployed; if you recognize it, you can do something about it.
