Mind Control in religious cults is usually a by-product and not done intentionally. High Control Groups and their leaders just gravitate to it and their rules fit the criteria.
BUT there are other groups that use it intentionally and by the book. The CIA is the perfect example and these programs are still ongoing...Dr Colin Ross speaks about CIA Mind Control in 2009 in Los Angeles with Roseanne Barr, Cathy O'Brien and Mark Phillips. He also speaks about MK-Ultra and the documented history of Project Blue Bird and Project Artichoke.
