Ah, the sweet taste of power. The feeling of controlling those around you, bending them to your will with just a flick of your wrist. It's intoxicating, isn't it? As I sit here in my lair, surrounded by my latest inventions and schemes, I can't help but revel in the sheer brilliance of it all.

You see, mind control is an art form. It requires finesse, cunning, and above all else - intelligence. And let me tell you something: I possess all three in spades. From an early age, I knew that I was destined for greatness - destined to rule over all who dared to stand in my way.

My methods may be unorthodox at times; some might even call them cruel or heartless. But what do they know? They're merely pawns on my grand chessboard - tools to be used and discarded as I see fit.

To achieve true domination over others, one must first master the art of manipulation. Words are powerful weapons indeed; with just a few carefully chosen phrases, one can sow seeds of doubt and fear within the minds of even the strongest individuals.

But words alone are not enough. Actions speak louder than any mere syllable ever could. That's why I've devoted countless hours to perfecting my craft - building machines capable of bending reality itself to my whims.

And then there's subjugation: the final step towards total control over one's subjects. Once they have been broken down mentally and emotionally through manipulation and mind games...it becomes child's play to assert dominance physically as well.

In conclusion...mind control is not just about pulling strings from behind the scenes; it's about creating a world where others bend knee willingly before their rightful ruler – ME! So heed this warning if you dare cross paths with Bertram: resistance is futile against someone as brilliant as myself!

Now go forth into this world armed with knowledge from Bertram’s Guide to Mind Control and Subjugation…just remember who holds true power here!
