Does anyone know of any systematic deprogramming techniques that can be used to efficiently reprogram Regilious believe systems to rational belief systems?

For example, if you were in charge of network programming for Baghdad metropolitan and suburban television, and had an unlimited supply of SONY Trinitron televisions to hand out, would it be possible to convert the citizens' attitudes to some that were more friendly to Western ideas?

In the interest of "Open Systems", what if we were to suddenly eliminate National Borders and Customs? What would happen?

How could we accelerate memetic propagation in such a way that there could evently be free and unrestricted global travel and goods distribution?
