Mind Control Baby
Either you realize it or not, want it or not, your mind is being manipulated and controlled by others each and every moment of your life. In fact, your mind is being controlled by me at this very moment. Wanted proof? You are still reading the text, aren’t you?
Even though I tried my best to come up with the best title for this post, it could still be somehow misleading. So, before we go any further, let me set the limit to our discussion.

From a simple ‘do this’ to the level of ‘kill them’. Some for the ‘good cause’ (or at least that is what the do-ers believe), some for ‘other causes’.
I have demonstrated one of the mind control tricks clearly from the very beginning. If you are reding this far, then the trick works. They say curiousity kills the cat, but this time it keeps you reading.

Everybody have their own authoritative figures: parents, kings, ugly boss who always shouts, religious leaders, celebrities, cool guy on the basketball team, society, gods, prophets, Bill Gates… You can use people’s obidience to authoritative figures to make them taking – or not taking – some actions.
