MIND CONTROL--THOUGHT REFORM--BRAINWASHING--WHAT IS IT?

It is, in very simplified language, going from point A to point C, and being unaware of passing B.

Or another words, changing your mind view of the world, religion, life, or anything else, without realizing you have changed it as much as you have.

THOUGHT REFORM or MIND CONTROL (same things) is done out of your awareness through systematic pre planned methods. It is unconstitutional, because under our Great Constitution, you have the American right to INFORMED CONSENT. Therefore, anyone that uses thought reform or mind control, is Anti-American.

BRAINWASHING is done via many of the same methods as thought reform or mind control, with the exception of one thing. In brainwashing there is an awareness in the beginning. The person knows who the enemy is, before succumbing to the control. As in the Patty Hearst case and with our Korean or other veterans, they started out with knowledge of who the enemy was.

In mind control and thought reform, the victim starts out TRUSTING THE PERPETRATOR. Therein, lies the horrible danger, that the hapless victim will never recognize the villain as the villain, and continue living under mind control for the rest of his/her life.

234.-Do you understand that you are a normal person, reacting normally to a very abnormal situation that was geared to bring you into submission and under its control for exploitation?
