The purpose of this post is to identify the wide range of mind control techniques and technologies that are presently employed by the kleptocratic intraspecies predators roaming about in the dark shadows of the control grid. Make no mistake: you ARE enmeshed in this grid. To a varying degree, this grid controls your thoughts, memories, perceptions, actions, and emotions.
It is only by becoming cognizant of the grid that you may begin to weaken its level of control over you. That said, there is a wide gradation in the means, manner, power, strength, and deployment of the various tools and techniques constituting the grid.
I am going to attempt to lay-out these tools and techniques, listing them in order from the most innocuous / easiest to counter at the beginning, to the most heinous and difficult to counter at the end. You can think of it as a scale of what you can control versus that over which you might have little control.
