I was just thinking of the aspects of ethics when I saw on a journal that a member was thinking of divorce after using for several days or weeks one title from subclub. On YouTube I saw many complaints against some subliminal producers who put negative programs in their videos. Some complained of addiction, negative visualizations, strange behaviors etc.
As the producers rarely give to their clients the lists of affirmations/programs as it is part of their secret/marketing, trust becomes the most important ingredient in the relationship. Now I buy one subliminal files to develop my masculinity/sexuality. After listening to this file for many weeks, I become hypersexual and play dangerous games with women. I divorced my wife. And suddenly I realized that I went too far, stop listening to the subliminal and goes back to the mindset I was before listening to the sub… but its too late ! the wife is not coming back.
Now I am an adult responsible and I took the responsibility to listen to this file by trusting the producer. I know that subliminal are potent force of change, but did I want a so drastic change as divorcing my wife (for example)?
The producer is not off the hook by just having a medical disclaimer. First the client can be totally in good health but does not know what his subconscious wants and is. The client takes a risk and hopes that his subconscious and conscious are aligned. If not we should have a psychoanalysis of several years before buying a subliminal mp3 Second only the producer knows the in and out of the product. Third the results may vary from one individual to another individual. One will have mild results, another will have a complete change of life.
My view is that most of the ethics and responsibility is on the shoulders of the producer of subliminal as he has most of the cards in his sleeves.
A guy who became hypersexual after listening to a sub for a long period and molest or worst rapes somebody, is he the only responsible ? If it can be proven that before he was a peaceful guy but then became hypersexual after listening to sub, I think there could be a part of responsibility elsewhere…
Of course now it is purely theoretical and I hope it will stay theoretical. But when you create products which will have an impact on the psyche/physical of a person you can’t avoid to ask yourself these kind of questions.
