I think there was a schwing and miss.
>How the fuck is Shinto used for control? Explain yourself.
Shinto in itself is a form of (self-imposed/fulfilling) control, not necessarily being used by anyone in a hierarchy, but usually can be and in fact is; because there's now a method available inside the minds of the people - a type of anchor to tug on by those who know how to manipulate Shintoism to their own advantage.
By instilling the requirement of performing earthly (Shinto) rituals into the free human mind as it starts out awareness inside the young human body, the mind as a result begins to bind the immensely powerful human spirit with earthly bullshit and limitations.
How many times is a Japanese drone required to pause their thoughts/life and bow (in some form) to any number of stupid insignificant objects (trees, rocks, buildings, shiny turds/whatever) in their life, before they die?
It's a bit like the primitive savage muslims, who are so undisciplined that the muslim women need to wear whole-body louse fumigation tents in order to prevent being openly gang-raped in the streets.
Anyway… the muslims are required to pause and pray five times a day to their pedophile caravan robber and his fake crony boss. Why? Only to control them and their dirty caveman savagery, by "reminding/returning" them to their duties to obey and submit their anuses to their homosexual sky-bosses, to "ground" and prevent them from getting too many of their own

That's kind of hot, actually. Schwing!
