Consider rewording the title to 'Digital Manipulation'. So many dark UX patterns mentioned in the above. Nice site and presentation though, which really is all we care about, right?
That's your framing and some people's cup is half empty. I see what you mean, but I disagree with the 'dark pattern' label. On the bright side, the more people are aware of these biases, the better they are at resisting them.
Personally, I'm thinking more along the lines of persuasion, not manipulation.
