What Mind Control Is Not
Mind control is not similar to brainwashing. The control of one's actions and thoughts is truly an interesting study and, to say the least, an important topic. However, it is not similar to brainwashing or the idea of programming people’s minds without their consent.

A person's thoughts and actions can never be easily controlled just because you want him rendered as incapable of doing what you want him to do.
Indeed, there are many misconceptions about mind control. There are a lot of gray areas about the topic. This requires further study in order to maximize the benefits of using mind control, if there are any. Before this can be done, complete understanding is necessary.
