In my opinion there seems to be a misunderstanding regarding mind control, as if anyone can control others' minds or it's easy to do. Mind control
requires an impressionable mind, that of a child for example, in order to seed it with whatever kind of control is desired. This is why religions aim
for the young and since their parents are already conditioned, bringing the kids to church, temple, etc., it's a perpetuation that will never end. If
children were not available religion would end with the last adult that was conditioned. Skeptics are not conditioned so we finally would inherit the
There are individuals who can create instant mind-control but it's a short-lived effect mainly because of ethics. Stage magicians have, using
volunteers, created negative and positive mental effects. A negative effect is telling the subject that they cannot see so-and-so even though
so-and-so is standing right in front of them. Somehow, the mind fills in the space occupied by so-and-so. A positive effect is when the subject
hallucinates whatever the hypnotist tells the subject to "see" even though no one else sees what the subject "sees".
Real, long-lasting mind control though, once done is almost impossible to replace with a free mind. Cult deprogrammers have to work extremely hard to
free a cult member of the controlling forces. Now, you may say, cult members are adults and you said that childrens' impressionable minds are
required. Any adult that find themselves in any situation where an authority figure is going to drone on for a length of time will eventually be
"hypnotized" and their minds will be controlled to do the controllers' will. But since a cult deprogrammer may eventually be successful it means that
they were dealing with a temporary situation as opposed to childrens' minds being "permanently" controlled to react favorably to religious controls
such as the silly religious rituals you see in churches, temples, etc. It also can be seen on TV constantly where you see a grieving widow telling
the child(ren) that they will eventually join their dad in heaven. THAT is lasting mental conditioning!
