Its all about behaviour change : UK Behavioural Insights Team


Its all about behaviour change : UK Behavioural Insights Team29 August 2013

Back in 2012 we found a sinister group of Lords moving to change the behaviour of the populations. Of course the idea of government changing minds is nothing new but medicating behaviour change in the schools…..?

Update – As the nation is currently on lockdown, the pensioners isolated, the next phase will be about changing the minds of the children in the now fully incorporated Academy school agenda. Medication under pandemic rules will be the means to the medicating of the required behaviour change.

And down from the Lords we find the main agenda of the Coalition is to change the behaviour of the British public to accept the serfdom of the new world under climate taxation.
Its all a bit messy but here is the government team happy to twist your mind in tune with the Tavistock Institute and its psychological warfare against the people :

What We Do
The Behavioural Insights Team, often called the ‘Nudge Unit’, applies insights from academic research in behavioural economics and psychology to public policy and services.
In addition to working with almost every government department, we work with local authorities, charities, NGOs, private sector partners and foreign government, developing proposals and testing them empirically across the full spectrum of government policy.
