Rulers make rules, ranging from the simply stated to indecipherable bureaucratese. All rules are intended to control behavior, including covert behavior, or thinking. In Corporations, Inc. rules are called policies. Rules are called sacred scriptures in Religion, Inc.
Rule making is a more direct way to control behavior. Mind shaping ends there, but not before the thinking that leads to behavior is controlled. The most familiar form of mind shaping in Corporations, Inc. is of course, advertising. In Religion, Inc. the mind shaping is known as indoctrination. Its targets are barely out of the crib and the intent is to replace budding critical thinking with the habit of seeing is believing and not vice versa.
Corporations, Inc. sell products and services, accompanied by the caveat, buyer beware. Religion, Inc. sells the way to afterlife, accompanied by a different caveat; "be damned if you don't buy."
