Brainwashing and how it works

Modern literature and film use the brainwashing scenario pretty liberally. It gets to the very nature of humanity: Are we all ultimately reducible to puppets? The protagonist in George Orwell’s “1984” undergoes a classic case of brainwashing that ends with the famous concession to his tormentors: “two plus two equals five.” In 1962’s “The Manchurian Candidate,” brainwashing produces a robot-like assassin incapable of overriding the control commands he’s been programmed with. “A Clockwork Orange” (1971) positions institutional brainwashing as an option for violent convicts looking to shorten their sentences, and in 1997’s “Conspiracy Theory,” a mentally unstable, government-brainwashed assassin seeks to prove that some very powerful people have been tampering with his mind.
