The Control of the Mind is the Control of the Body

Our body is composed of what we eat; our mind, of what we hear, read, say, and write. This is why every society, every social institution – religion, law, medicine – controls not only what we can and cannot take into our bodies, but also what we can and cannot take into our minds. In the final analysis, control of food is tantamount to control of the body, and control of language to control of the mind. [1]
