I only discovered the existence of this One Direction boy group phenomenon recently. (Being 53 myself, these things can pass by my notice for a long time; I learned of their existence from stumbling across a parody
of them, then smelling a major rat had to check out the real ones.) They're the quintessential PTB, completely artificial, calculated Tavistock-inspired mind control operation targeting the same demographic the Beatlemania era Beatles corrupted and destroyed -- pre-teen and teenage girls. And as kelticteuton suggested, their creators are pulling out and reusing lots of the same images, themes and gimmicks they used to package and sell The Beatles, including a lot of this sort of Swinging London, old style English red buses and pubs and teacups stuff. Actually that's an "England" that hasn't existed for some time now. TPTB globalism and unrestricted immigration totally destroyed it, but American (and other foreign) girls wouldn't know that. And they'd be too young to recognize what they're seeing as a rip-off. To them it's all new and thrilling. And like the Beatlemania/Hard Day's Night aesthetic, it induces in them a resurrected Anglophilia. That seems to be important to TPTB's agenda.
I only watched a couple of the group's videos and ended my research there. But I could derive all of this just from those two. The name of the group is also a very powerful subliminal: One Direction
: You must all now follow the one and only direction that TPTB lay out for you and these pretty pied pipers lure you to -- no dissenters! Just like the Ed Sullivan set with the giant white arrows pointing everyone and everything in one direction -- to The Beatles -- so too does the name of this group command you in which direction to go. That they're nothing but synthetic robotoids in masks and their voices artificially generated by computers on autotune perhaps makes them even more
hypnotic to viewers and listeners because it induces very, very subconscious states of cognitive dissonance. The more unconscious we are of the subliminals and deceptions, the more
effective they are in inducing sustained hypnotic states and behavior alteration in us.
