    We can dictate your actions by holding a gun at your head or by dictating your thoughts.

    Most of us live in free societies so there is no gun held at our head. So the dictating of thoughts has reached a high level of sophistication.

    Essentially it means putting our critical minds to sleep so that we are susceptible to suggestion.

    For instance advertisers spend billions of dollars every year putting our critical minds to sleep so that we will be susceptible to their message.

    Religions put our critical minds to sleep by ritual and the repetition of doctrine so we will be susceptible to suggestion.

    Drug dealers put our critical minds to sleep by the repetition of drug use so that we will be susceptible to suggestion.

    And of course politicians stay on message and by repeating the message over and over put our critical minds to sleep and open us to suggestion.

    Cults like MBTI and astrology put our critical minds to sleep by the repetition of jargon so that we will be susceptible to suggestion.

    Pornography is highly repetitious and puts our critical minds to sleep.

    And the repetition of violence in movies and TV puts our critical minds to sleep.

    And education based on the repetition of rote learning also puts our critical minds to sleep.

    And of course a job based on mindless repetition also puts our critical minds to sleep.

    The repetition of dieting puts our critical minds to sleep.

    Even the repetition of driving puts our critical minds to sleep.

    But most of all, the repetition of reading this is putting our critical minds to sleep so that we will be susceptible to the suggestion that -

    The Enlightenment woke up our critical minds, but everywhere our critical minds are asleep.
