Voluntary brainwashing?

Oh fine, about time I did something mind control related again on here, and something I read today gives me the perfect opportunity to do this.

As people who have read the blog for a while know, for the cause of depression, I fall into the ‘ECT fanclub’, as opposed to those who hate the idea of ECT intently. Yes, its a dramatic step, but if you need it, it tends to help, so… I know, never actually had it done (at any voltage level), but if someone wants to offer me the chance, for research, then yes, I would!

But today I read something, which takes the concept of treatment for depression, and disturbed mind issues a step further, voluntary brainwashing! Right, fine, before all the good folk start having fits about that, its only fiction! Here, in fact

I know, a troubled and abusive past leads to this? Fine, unlike some ECT stuff I read about, her choice was voluntary, and fine, if it solves all isssues? Yes, please remember, this is only a concept, its only in fiction at present!

Who, me, would I? Almost certainly yes, if it was the only way to solve all my mental issues, I guess? OK, fine, I’m biased, I’d enjoy that being done to me, regardless of mental issues! But seriously, however bad things were for you in life, would you be prepared to be brainwashed, just to solve them? I suspect for most, more than a step too far, but is there someone out there, who would actually consider it?
