Indoctrination is the process of teaching a person or group to accept a set of ideas, beliefs, mores, and values uncritically.[1]


Indoctrination is typically implemented in order to shape thought and behaviour for the purposes of exploitation.[2]

Indoctrination is most effective when undertaken at an early age (i.e. infancy and childhood) when the physical unit is most trusting and receptive. In this regards parents are the primary (though typically unwitting) agents of indoctrination.

The indoctrination that is initiated in the home is carried forward by the school system and the mass media.

Primary Indoctrination is the indoctrination that occurs in childhood and adolescence at the hands of parents, teachers, authors, and so on. Secondary Indoctrination occurs throughout adulthood and is where archetypes learned in childhood are constantly reinforced.

The goal of indoctrination in any society is diminishment, disempowerment, and intergenerational maintenance/reproduction of The System.

Indoctrination comes in many forms. There is Spiritual Indoctrination, Social Indoctrination, Economic Indoctrination, Psychological Indoctrination, and Political Indoctrination
