Hypnopaedia is sleep teaching, and the controllers use it in BNW to "condition" its populace to accept promiscuity, use and abuse soma, and "brainwash" them to accept the values and tenets of the BNW. Hypnopaedia is a form of subliminal reinforcement whereby hypnopaedic slogans such as "a gramme is better than a damn" are played while the individual is asleep. While awake, the individual will spout off these slogans automatically and behave however the controllers want them to behave.
