Hm.. I hear this from my corporate superiors every now and then during All-Hands Q&A sessions. Better check their background...
You should try to feed your inner conspiracy theorist with documents such as Bezmenov interview http://uselessdissident.blogspot.com/2008/11/interview-with-... (also it's all over youtube). You might want to skip straight to the second part as the first one is merely establishes background on what was the ussr/kgb back then. This ancient (1984) interview might ring you a tzar-bell drawing parallels to the current times.
Make the population see conspiracies everywhere and question everything. Even if they don't do it in practice (i.e. you still go to the doctor even though on Facebook you reject all the science) it'll have a wide scale detrimental effect.

There was another called Business Process Management by the Hasso Plattner Institute on the OpenHPI site. (I started on those lessons and did one, but I also started a new job at that time so I didn't finish the course. Links here http://bpm.naiveso.com/ )
Dale Carnegie material, for example. Here's their "Overcoming Objections" slides: https://02f0a56ef46d93f03c90-22ac5f107621879d5667e0d7ed595bd...
Aka marketing and corps use the same tricks as ABC agents trying to get you to act in their interest, against your own best interest. Without any exaggeration.
My marketing class was more brutal than this - turn on some music so that individuals lose track of time and become more impulsive, turn on music that alienates "undesirables" loitering around the store, lightning to make clothing look most appealing in the mirror, form rapport as a salesperson so the customer feels like they are declining a close friend once they walk away from a sale.

It wholesale incorporates western psychological concepts such as Maslow's hierarchy of needs and extensively references CIA documents. There is a large Russian literature on psychology and it doesn't get referenced at all. (e.g. Russians used gabapentinoids for anxiety in the 1960s)
One could imagine they painted on a few words like "Bourgeois", references to marxism and added some stilted phrases to make it look like a translation from the Russian.
