There are two ways to influence a person’s view of the world.
One is to change the way they think, this is what the education has control over during your childhood when your mind is more easily malleable. It does this by teaching you to remember facts that are assumed to be true.
The other, is to change what you think or the information that you receive (over long periods this will also most likely change the way you think). If you wanted to control the government you could do it through the CIA/MI5/MI6 or NSA/GCHQ as that is their source of information. For the general population you could do it through media such as newspapers, television channels, television, films etc.
