To train humans the number one tool is fear.
You take the one thing humans fear the most - DEATH - and make them feel that death is imminent if they do x, y or z.
Once you tell them they might die you then hammer them with messages that will compound that message. Eventually, after just a couple of weeks, you have passive, obedient humans that do exactly as they are told EVEN IF it no longer makes no sense.
