In my experience, mind control and thought reform most definitely exist. It is commonly used in Large Group Awareness Training.
Take a look at the following article: [perso.orange.fr
The outline in the article is typical or very similar to the format of most LGATs.
Mind control of thought reform happened to my girlfriend when all eight of the thought reform processes were used by a man supposed to be presenting a human potential seminar.
My girlfriend returned from the course and subsequent courses (because they do hard selling towards the end) a different person, someone I didn't know.
She has changed so much, is so different, and her ideas have all changed. She uses loaded language or jargon, something that is common in these LGATs.
She pulled away from me after we had been exceptionally close. In fact, we [u:e6b5f7e37d]never[/u:e6b5f7e37d] spent a day apart. Now, she hardly sees me and I cannot reach her.
There are numerous examples on the thread "Help, my wife just returned from PSI 7" at [board.culteducation.com
] where women or men who attended that specific course returned home and walked out on their spouses.
Those walkouts were not a natural occurence; they were induced by the thought reform or mind control exerted on the course they attended.
It is criminal what these people who present them get away with. They don't need qualifications and they are usually not qualified to deal with the issues they tackle.
The methods they use are unethical because those attending the courses are not told what the methods are about. If they knew it was all about thought reform or mind control, they, I guess, would often opt out.
Some have people sign waivers declaring that they will not tell what goes on the courses. Some say it is so that the attendees will not spoil it for friends who might want to do the courses later. My guess is that it is mostly to prevent word of these unscrupulous practises getting out.
I wish there was a way to criminally prosecute these people. They have destroyed, and continue to destroy, so many relationships and lives.
