Why not being under mind control with e-learning?

Why not being under mind control with e-learning?

An interesting question passed around at a party or among friends this Friday: How do you determine if you’re under mind control?

The fact is that you just cannot know, as everything you are doing could be a response that fits perfectly into another persons plans. If you take that as a possibility you could simply just give up and settle with the fact that NOTHING is truly within your control, think twice as there is a healthier option. Just ask yourself: “Am I acting or am I reacting?”

If you are reacting then you are respond to something outside of your control and trying to gain some control back, which is a potential sign of some form of mind control. Since no one likes to feel powerless and out of control the solution is to do something intentional and positive, that is NOT a response to the external environment.
