The Psychology Of Mind Control
In the box office hit "Inception", characters use a sophisticated dream machine to infiltrate the subconscious of powerful businessmen and manipulate their minds. In the classic film thriller "The Manchurian Candidate", the son of a powerful political family is brainwashed into attempting assassinations with implanted code words. Though they take different approaches, both these films are about the psychology of mind control. These two examples illustrate the manner in which this subject has captured the imagination of the public. Imagination is a reflection of reality, however, and there are many different kinds of tactics used to coerce people into various mental states.
