Throughout history there have been attempts by many governments and leaders to control thinking. Jesus Christ did not believe the leaders of the religion of that date. There are other examples in the Bible, I'll mention just one, the 40 that were marched into a lake; what happened to them? The invasion of Muslims into Europe, this is lacking in the teaching of European history that I was exposed to, what happen to the captives in those countries? I will mention only a few examples of controlled thinking by leaders or governments The Crusades, Napoleon, the invasion of America by European settlers, what happen to the owners of the land at that time? Adolf Hitler, Stalin, North Korea, Iran--you can add to this list.
