The Mind Control Revolts (or Mind Control Riots) were conflicts, taking place between 2043 and 2047, on Earth. (Star Trek: The Motion Picture novelization, TOS novel: Strangers from the Sky, Star Trek: Avenger: "The Essential Process")
These were violent demonstrations against computer-implants in brains; some nations were using medical implants (such as those to correct vision impairments) to control more radical members of their populations. (Orion Press: "Lexicon, M-O" [2010 revision])
Many members of Helena Adiwoso's family were killed during these demonstrations. This fostered a belief in her that nothing was permanent and that no one could really be relied on. (Star Trek: Shadowstar Station: "Heritage")
As late as the 2270s, Starfleet felt that ingrained feelings about such implants would result in maladaptive public reaction if the fact that flag officers wore sensceiver implants was widely known. Thus, such information was classified. (Star Trek: The Motion Picture novelization)
