Voluntary Brain Hacking

The question is asked in the LRC article today on brain hacking: “Could people be convinced to do things that they believe are unethical, such as kill?” Actually, it happens all the time, and is a result of voluntary brain hacking–joining the military. On a related note, I was watching something about the Mafia last night, and ex-Mafia guys were describing how when they “joined” or were “made” they swore absolute obedience to their captain, including killing on command. Reminds me of this article of mine on the military: “Go Ahead and Join.”
