An interesting parallel to the above view is expressed by a hypnotist named Jack True. In the epilogue to Jon Rappoport’s 1998 book The Secret Behind Secret Societies, True makes the incredible statement that he’s “stopped doing hypnosis on most people” because most of his clients are already in a hypnotic trance when they walk into his office! “The modern idea that surrounds our society is that by being nice, by being very nice you will fit into the system around you and everyone else will be happy with you. The only thing is, everything around you is hypnotic. I mainly find myself doing reverse-hypnosis these days. I do things to wake people up.” (371).
