Does this mean you shouldn’t build a following? Absolutely Foreword to The Missing Chapter Some ideas are so dangerous that even those who deal in dangerous ideas have to take pause before revealing them. The more I looked at the formulas for brainwashing you’re about to learn. After releasing the original MCM. I considered including a chapter on “mind control” itself or in other words: brain washing. The temptation to turn your customers into a cult-like following (and I don’t mean in a good way) is perhaps too much for the average business owner to resist. Based on voluntary participation a (a cult is based on coercion) Based on love of a product or thing (a cult is based on blind love of a leader) Non-judgemental of those outside of it (a cult “shuns the non-believer”) I hope that you use this information to learn what not to do (don’t build a cult). and then deciding to rerelease it in ebook form. and the methods that self-help fads use to brainwash their followers. and should. perhaps.

B rainwashing is not as hard as you think. however. the lower age of consent laws in other countries doesn't sit well with me. but it’s not necessary to make our point. we are all brainwashed into believing that our own culture is the one “true” culture. That we are just and righteous while the other tribes are evil and to be shunned. Having been raised in the United States. We are all “god’s chosen people” in our own minds – no matter where we are from or what we believe. Marijuana In the United States it is illegal to smoke marijuana. 1 . it’s easy to see that we are likely more a product of our cultural programming than of any universal sense of morality.
