Hypnotics[edit]

"Almost all people are hypnotics. The proper authority saw to it that the proper belief should be induced, and the people believed properly. George W. Bush, Controlled Chaos, (10 September 2007), p. 292."

This is a quote from Charles Fort not George Bush. —This unsigned comment is by 31.90.255.182 (talkcontribs) .


I have removed the fraudulent attribution, but the earliest definite citation I have yet found is from a 2013 book without citation, which I provide here:
  • Almost all people are hypnotics. The proper authority saw to it that the proper belief should be induced, and the people believed properly.
    • Charles Fort, as quoted in The Triune Brain, Hypnosis and the Evolution of Consciousness (2013), by Adam Weishaupt
I don’t have time for further searches at present, as I must be leaving soon. ~ Kalki·· 12:11, 11 September 2017 (UTC)
