The following excerpt is from Christian Science and the Threat of Mind Control by Ann Beals
" Because the public is growing insensitive from witnessing so much suffering and pain through the media, the media tries to reach its audience now through greater and greater shock treatments, impressing every kind of vile and brutal images on the concious and subconcious mind. These mental images enter the mind before it can put up a defense, and then they accumulate within to form a very dark and disturbing inner self.
If we are mesmerized by this image of life and accept it into our conciousness, we then image it forth into our own lives in varying degress of discord. When such negative emotions and mental images become the norm for our life and we dwell on the illusion long enough, we become convinced that it is not only real, but powerful - more powerful than God.
