Summary

"Thought reform" is a calculated strategy of social action designed to convert individuals to another ideology through a long-term process, during which threat underlies all experiences. In this article, part of the "Freedom of Speech Newsletter," insights from a phenomenological view of rhetoric are used to explain the nature and impact of thought reform. The following topics are discussed: the definition and basic process of thought reform, the five stages in the system of thought reform developed by the Chinese Marxist revolutionaries (prelearning, annihilation of identity, introduction of a new identity, validation of this new identity, and maintenance), and the implications of thought reform for the study of human communication.
