I think you guys are going a bit offtopic, so I would like to stipulate what Doobah47 points out and widen the thought so it will be easier to see. Doobah47 is saying that there are certain 'thought-objects
', such as racism or hip-hop, that have effects on people in the sense that people start behaving in certain ways.
I think that the broader issue at hand is that people create 'thought-object' with certain values attached to the, I might value 'rock' as being 'great' and therefore buy an electric guitar (perhaps a not so great example, but the best that came up). In that sense 'thought-objects' have consequences for the behavior of people. A government may try to teach all the inhabitants the 'thought-object' 'nationalism', which has the result that millions of people will line up in trenches on opposite sides and charge into the enemy machinegun fire when told to, all because 'nationalism' is 'good'.
In the same way a government may teach its inhabitants certain aesthetic ideals to value. That can ultimately lead to people seperating certain lives or certain behavior as 'right' or 'wrong', as Nietzsche
argues in his 'Zur Genealogie der Moral (jenseits von Gut und Bose)
'. In that sense people would start to think that there is a certain kind of behavior which creates a judgement on the self of the inhabitants and, when showing certain behavior, people might think deserving of punishment. This, in fact, is the enslavement Doobah47 refers to. When thinking deserving of punishment, one has made onself a slave to that which will punish.
