The greatest mind altering drug is the truth.
A free person with a clear mind, free of government engineered propaganda is a powerful tool with potential that is unlimited. The magic of living in a world where a controlled media and government does not even play a role in your life and your thinking process is a magic you cannot imagine until you cross that bridge.
Should we not care that a few dummies at the top want to enslave the rest of the species with disinformation and lies that appeal to our lower more primitive sections of our brains?
==The Art of Overcoming the New World Order (Suarez, Bernie)
“A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers…. The greatest triumphs of propaganda have been accomplished, not by doing something, but by refraining from doing. Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth.”
The New York Times explained the hopes of those involved in the experiments, in an exposé article on the history of the CIA. The experimentation was aimed at finalising techniques that could not only be used on the enemy but also, for reasons of national security, their own loyal agents. “They wanted to reduce a man to a bewildered, self-doubting mass to “subvert his principles,” a C.I.A. document said.
They wanted to direct him in ways that “may vary from rationalizing a disloyal act to the construction of a new person. One of their longest running goals was to develop a way to induce amnesia. They wanted to be able to interrogate enemy espionage agents in such a way that neither the agents nor their superiors would know they had been compromised, and they wanted to be able to wipe clean the memories of their own agents after certain missions and, especially, when they were going into retirement.”
Richard Helms stated: “We intend to investigate the development of a chemical material which causes a reversible, nontoxic aberrant mental state, the specific nature of which can be reasonably well predicted for each individual. This material could potentially aid in discrediting individuals, eliciting information, and implanting suggestions and other forms of mental control.”
==Your Thoughts Are Not Your Own: Mind control, mass manipulation and perception management (Sanders, Neil)
Kill the CIA, Dismantle the Empire and Free America and the World.
Can the hidden state, with all of its covert operatives and entrenched bureaucratic corruption, domestic and international illegal activities ever be held accountable? Unfortunately, truth will never be allowed to disinfect the evil that has been spawned and metastasized into every organ of this nation, that is never without a vicious defense.
The article below by the libertarian Jacob Hornberger ends with the most likely of two reasons Bernie Sanders has stepped back on his anti-CIA rhetoric “he’s afraid of what this Cold-War-era agency will do to him if he is still determined to abolish it.”
Bernie Sanders may be one of those rare, unique politicians that has little to hide from the public or his family, it is hard to imagine that there are more than one handful of such humans within the Washington Beltway. It is especially difficult to believe that Donald Trump is free of unreported transgressions and embarrassing past embarrassing peccadilloes.
I have said this many times before, the hidden state, the CIA, NSA and the myriad other subterranean information gathering agencies of government have and have had for many years access to every bit and byte of the personal history of every single American no matter their ranking in the hierarchy of the ruling elite.
\Information is power and, when turned into knowledge about every citizen of America, it gives those who wield it absolute dictatorial power over even the mightiest of the power elites. More so, for those dependent for livelihood or fame on a public persona. The CIA has murdered with impunity overseas the lowliest of peasants to the leaders of nations.
They have indirectly caused the death of many thousands of Americans through their undeniable import facilitation of heroin, cocaine and other drugs of dependency into this country. Their crimes against humanity are well documented as was their control over his nation’s media, which following the Church Committee’s findings in 1977 only experienced a brief period of hibernation followed by what has become an impenetrable system of domestic control.
It is more than likely, in fact very probable that after the embarrassments of the mid 1970’s, the CIA and other domestic spying agencies redoubled their efforts to stay immune from any such inquiries in the future. With the development of new technologies of surveillance and the digitization of all information, the powers of those collecting our personal data has grown exponentially.
The ability of the CIA to “persuade” with offers that cannot be refused without resorting to the old tried and true methods of silencing those who oppose its power provides for the protection of the organization beyond all but the most pure of heart and past and those with the protection of their own Praetorian guards.
One thus wonders, is Trump as he appears? Have the coercive, controlling powers already sucked enough of his blood to turn him to another vampire of the state? And, if not, will they allow any intrusion from outsiders not indoctrinated into the control centers of the inner circles of the real power elites of America?
Unfortunately, either Trump is a well vetted Trojan Horse, or he will not be allowed. Will he or Bernie Sanders be redirected, as have all Presidents in the post war World War period, to a path of subservience to the will of the hidden state and its organs of control through a not so gentle pressure or something worse?
It is very unlikely that what the millions of Americans awakening today from the propaganda and indoctrination matrix that had previously brainwashed them into a somnolent complacency, through a rejection of either Democrat or Republican establishment candidates, will ever be allowed to experience a leader of this once free nation not directly controlled by the same powers that have, with progressively greater domination, controlled and influenced the policies of every President since as far back as Andrew Jackson? I very much doubt it.
Nothing is as it seems. We are being duped and if not now, soon, for an honest and independent minded President of the United States will never be allowed, not now, perhaps not ever. Not ever, that is until we have a true revolution in this country. That is coming, but the deluge first.
Good for Sanders! And Shame on Him! – The Future of Freedom Foundation
It goes without saying that Hillary Clinton is remaining silent on the entire matter. If there is any candidate who would never take on at a fundamental level any part of the national-security establishment, especially the CIA, it’s Hillary Clinton.
The real shame of it is that Sanders has backtracked on his call for the abolition of the CIA. Why would he do that when he knows that nothing fundamental has changed and that everything is much worse than it was in 1974? Certainly Sanders knows that a society can never be free and prosperous as long as it has this type of totalitarian apparatus grafted onto its governmental system.
Realistically, I can think of only two reasons why Sanders is now backtracking: One, he might think that people won’t vote for him if he comes out in favor of abolishing this Cold-War-era agency that has done so much damage to the America and the world. Or, two, he’s afraid of what this Cold-War-era agency will do to him if he is still determined to abolish it.
