Dr. Lifton's Eight Criteria for Thought Reform
One of the common things heard in The Game is "by choice, not by force." While we know that gorilla pimps exist, the use of physical force and abuse is generally frowned upon, despite the fact that it is used in a majority of households. But whether or not physical violence exists has nothing to do with choice vs. force. Individuals who are educated and understand how to manipulate the human mind can easily convince or encourage an individual to do things they wouldn't have otherwise. So just because your folks hasn't put hands on you doesn't mean that you are in The Game by your own free will. The human mind can easily be manipulated using everyday social interactions.
