“These are the ITS#TEN finalists but beware: there are many still out there. They are able to CONTROL you with subliminal messages, hypnotic sounds, hidden vibrations, wicked rituals and mind-bending devices…

They hide in fashion, photography, accessories and jewelry schools. They are present in the leading magazines, amongst the most influential opinion leaders and the biggest brands.”
