Backstreet asks ....
Would someone please define "mind control" for me.
Mind control as in definition is an attempt to take over a person's cognitive and critical thinking abilities, in a usual effort to get these ones to behave in a designated preconceived manner.
This can be done by making up certain information, then implant a devised predetermined answer for the person to read and accept.
Cults (JWS) use tactics of mind control by subjecting an individual with select biased information to intentionally create a person that usually loyal and subservient to a person of the cult who is self identified as a higher more spiritual person than you. (GB)
He or she is identified as the one to follow and be subservient to to get a special reward.
...... ie. Nirvana, a living paradise or a group of people who will love you unconditional or an appeasement to god
