Thing is, you were not accurate, not even close. Oh yes we can all make the same mistake in casual passing, but here it was important to have the right thing in the right place to begin with, especially since things have moved on a bit since then, but still, not so long ago, and no you do not mention wanting to correct any date, which also makes me also think you won't be making any movie any day soon.

This is not to say that science, sociology, and related projects haven't become more skilled at utilizing suggestibility as a means to an end. This is the entire science of propaganda...and it's used in far more than just defensive or offensive tactics. But there is a HUGE difference between use of suggestibility and a "mind-controlled slave."
I think this really sums it up best. Especially the suggestibility part. I would also say some people are a little easier to "suggest" or "nudge" into doing the things that you want.
I would say having unfettered access to a persons life would make a strategy of suggesting people into actions a little easier, add in alcohol and you could probably get people to do things they normally wouldn't do.
I could also imagine the disaster that would occur if someone tried using the same tactics of suggestion against a person that worked so well the first time only to be slamming their head against a wall wondering why they aren't getting the same reaction. It would also probably mean these tactics have a signature of some sort that would make the group or program identifiable.
I bet you would have a to break a person down in order to get some tactics to be effective. Again, I digress.
I personally find all of this stuff fascinating.

You got it...this is exactly right. Why recreate the wheel when you can find a wheel that is 3/4s of the way there already? This is why profiling of your data is so critically important. They can determine so much about your psychological profile based upon what you do, what you watch, what comments you make (and where), who your friends are or aren't, your job, your health, etc... This is also how cults work, incidentally....
Suggestibility can have so much more positive results in manipulation than MK-ULTRA ever dreamed about... And it's much cheaper and easier to pull off covertly.

I will abstain from mentioning and detailing those tactics, for those of us invested in these types of studies know full well, and others new to the field can easily find the answers themselves with a bit of proper research. I do so because I am cautious about releasing such poisons into the thoughtscape online, mainly because I am well aware that there are imbalanced persons who fetishize these MK topics (whether as a Master or Slave) and I don't wish to give them any more ideas for their perversions. There are, sadly, enough "manuals" and books written on the subject of "mind control" to satisfy that subculture and I wish no place within the ranks of being even a remote accessory to the "hows" of such things.
