If you have ever thought of being in control of your life, the one thing that you never assume is that someone else will tell you what to do, at every step of the way. Being in control means that you make decisions regarding your day-to-day activities, and seek advice only when you need to do so. However, to the antichrist, being in control means that they make all the decisions for you, and you simply obey their instructions.
Everyone who receives the Mark of the Beast is slated to lose control of their decision-making at one point or another. You may still have your full mental faculties, but that is only for a time, so that you can be a lure to others.
