We seem to forget that the aim of propaganda is to disguise itself as fact.
For these reasons, it has been difficult for us to dismiss the suspicion that, latent in the minds of many of the social scientists has lain the belief that, given sufficient authority and enough funds, human behavior can be controlled and that this control can be exercised without risk to either ethical principles or spiritual values and that therefore, the solution to all social problems should be entrusted to them.
This title implies that the objective view point of the pure scientist is about to become obsolete in favor of techniques of control. It also suggests that our traditional concept of freedom as the function of natural and constitutional law has already been abandoned by the “social engineer” and brings to mind our native fear of controls, however well intended .
The result of the development and operation of the network in which Foundations have played such a significant role seems to have provided this country with what is tantamount to a national system of education under the tight control of organizations and persons, little known to the American public. Its operations and ideas are so complex as to be beyond pubic understanding or control.
The willingness of Foundations~ to support experiments in fields which defied control; to support these uncontrollable experiments without first having proved them to be “in the public interest”; and to extend this support without reporting its purpose in language which could be readily understood.
===Dodd Report to Congress, 1945
The murders of a few hundred humans by a few hundred other humans is commonplace enough but, for the flavor of horror and terror, of endless nightmare rampant upon a landscape of what was once American democracy, consider this expansion of the Brzezinski epigraph which cannot repeated often enough: “In the technotronic society the trend would seem to be toward the aggregation of the individual support of millions of uncoordinated citizens, easily within the reach of magnetic and attractive personalities, effectively exploiting the latest communications techniques to manipulate emotion and control reason.”
“Drug Tests by CIA Held More Extensive Than Reported in ’75,” said the New York Times on July 16, 1977.
The testing of drugs by the CIA was just a part of the United States government’s top-secret mind-control project, a project which had spanned thirty-five years and had involved tens of thousands of individuals. It involved techniques of hypnosis, narco-hypnosis, electronic brain stimulation, behavioral effects of ultrasonic, microwave, and low-frequency sound, aversive and other behavior modification therapies.
While the CIA was a major funder of the mind-control research, virtually every major government agency became in some way knowingly or unwittingly involved. While I began my research believing that a “cult of intelligence” was behind the mind-control program, I found that there is, in fact, no single originating force, but several. The operation is too widespread and complex for it to be created by a “cult.”
If a cult there must be, then it is a cult within a cult, in an interlocking chain of invisible mini-govermnents with unwritten rules, unwritten plans, and unwritten loyalties. It is the plan of a secret bureaucracy — what I call a cryptocracy — which conspires against our laws and our freedoms. “Cryptocracy”
While the CIA, near the top of the intelligence pyramid has been drawing most of the fire, the evidence of a cryptocracy clearly implicates the National Security Agency, the National Programs Office, the Defense Intelligence Agency and its subsidiaries in military intelligence, The Federal Bureau of Investigation as well as the Civil Service. The crypto-alliance has extended in an ever expanding network among private contractors and institutions and religious organizations.
With the Central Intelligence in the vanguard, the cryptocracy is composed of persons operating within the office of Naval Intelligence, Army Intelligence, Air Force Intelligence, Department of Justice, Department of Health, Education and Welfare, Bureau of Prisons, Bureau of Narcotics, Atomic Energy Commission (Department of Energy), Veteran’s Administration, General Services Administration, National Science Foundation, and even major American corporations, especially certain airlines, oil companies, and aerospace contractors.
The cryptocracy invades the privacy of citizens and corporations. It meddles, often violently, in the internal politics of foreign nations, and has hired, trained, and equipped mind-controlled assassins for the murder of heads of state. The cryptocracy may have been involved in attempts to control U.S. elections. It controls key figures in the U.S. and world press.
The CIA thought up the term “brainwashing” to lead people in the Western world to believe that the inscrutable Orientals had again, like Fu Manchu, invented a revolutionary technique controlling the human mind. The word “brainwashing” and the official government explanation of what happened to the Korean POWs was propaganda. It was aimed at fueling a home-grown fear of the Communists upon which the Cold War so greatly depended.
The word “brainwashing” became commonplace after the Soviet Union presented evidence before the United Nations that charged the United States with the use of germ warfare in Korea — a major violation of the Geneva Convention. The Soviet evidence contained the confessions of several captured United States pilots stating both in documents and on film that they had dropped germ bombs on North Korea. By the time these men were repatriated their stories had changed.
“I can hypnotize a man — without his knowledge or consent — into committing treason against the United States,” boasted Dr. George Estabrooks in the early 1940s. Estabrooks, chairman of the Department of Psychology at Colgate University, was called to Washington by the War Department shortly after Pearl Harbor.
It would be possible, he said, for “the enemy” to plant a foreign agent as a doctor in a hospital or his own office. This “doctor” could, by means of fake physical examinations, place thousands of people under his power over a period of time. Estabrooks projected how, by hypnotizing key officers and programming them to follow suggestions, this “masked maneuver” could enable a lowly first lieutenant to take-over the reins of the entire U.S. Army.
Going even further with his alarming predictions, Estabrooks told how disguised techniques of hypnosis could be employed to create an entire army of saboteurs within our own country. “Let us suppose that in a certain city there lives a group of a given foreign extraction. They are loyal Americans but still have cultural and sentimental ties to the old country. A neighborhood doctor, working secretly for a foreign power, hypnotizes those of his patients who have ties favorable to his plans. Having done this he would, of course, remove from them all knowledge of their ever having been hypnotized. “Next comes a one-month period of indoctrination under hypnosis. By various means, including the offer of substantial rewards and educational processes designed to strengthen their ancestral loyalties, their cooperation is obtained.”
Estabrooks explained how individuals so controlled would have no conscious aversion to Americans and would continue to behave as good citizens. Subconsciously, however, they would be saboteurs and agents of the enemy. “All right you say. This sounds beautiful on paper. But what about the ’well-known psychological principle’ that no one will do anything under hypnosis that he wouldn’t do when he’s awake?” Estabrooks asked. “My experiments have shown this assumption is poppycock
In 1981, Major Michael A. Aquino collaborated with Colonel Paul E. Vallely to produce a paper entitled From PSYOP to MindWar: The Psychology of Victory.
So let us begin with a simple name change. We shall rid ourselves of the self-conscious, almost “embarrassed” concept of “psychological operations”. In its place we shall create Mind War. The term is harsh and fear-inspiring, and so it should be: It is a term of attack and victory — not one of rationalization and coaxing and conciliation. The enemy may be offended by it; that is quite all right as long as he is defeated by it. A definition is offered: Mindwar is the deliberate, aggressive, convincing of all participants in a war that we will win that war. It is deliberate in that it is
Accordingly PSYOP “combat support” units as we now know them must become a thing of the past. MindWar teams must offer technical expertise to the commander from the onset of the planning process, and at all levels down to that of the battalion. Such teams cannot be composed — as they are now — of branch-immaterial officers and NCOs who know simply the basics of tactical propaganda operations. They must be composed of full-time experts who strive to translate the strategy of national MindWar into tactical goals which maximize the effective winning of the war and minimize loss of life. Such MindWar teams will win commanders’ respect only if they can deliver on their promises.
MindWar must target all participants if it is to be effective. It must not only weaken the enemy; it must strengthen the United States. It strengthens the United States by denying enemy propaganda access to our people, and by explaining and emphasizing to our people the rationale for our national interest in a specific war. Under existing United States law, PSYOP units may not target American citizens. That prohibition is based upon the presumption that ’propaganda’ is necessarily a lie or at least a misleading half-truth, and that the government has no right to lie to the people.
The Propaganda Ministry of Goebbels must not be part of the American way of life. Quite right, and so it must be axiomatic of MindWar that it always speaks the truth. Its power lies in its ability to focus recipients’ attention on the truth of the future as well as that of the present. MindWar thus involves the stated promise of a truth that the United States has resolved to make real if it is not already so.
“Propaganda” as defined by Harold Lasswell “is the expression of opinions or actions carried out deliberately by individuals or groups with a view to influencing the opinions or actions of other individuals or groups for predetermined ends and through psychological manipulations.”
===Operation Mind Control: The Cryptocracy’s Plan to Psychocivilize You (Expanded Researcher’s Edition) (Bowart, W.)
“Mind control: psychological reality or mindless rhetoric?
“Mind control is the process by which individual or collective freedom of choice and action is compromised by agents or agencies that modify or distort perception, motivation, affect, cognition and/or behavioural outcomes. It is neither magical nor mystical, but a process that involves a set of basic social psychological principles.
Conformity, compliance, persuasion, dissonance, reactance, guilt and fear arousal, modelling and identification are some of the staple social influence ingredients well studied in psychological experiments and field studies. In some combinations, they create a powerful crucible of extreme mental and behavioural manipulation when synthesized with several other real-world factors, such as charismatic, authoritarian leaders, dominant ideologies, social isolation, physical debilitation, induced phobias, and extreme threats or promised rewards that are typically deceptively orchestrated, over an extended time period in settings where they are applied intensively….has also been reported that the CIA put into practice nearly 150 projects–collectively termed MKULTRA–to develop various forms of exotic mind control, including the use of LSD and hypnosis.”
“Tavistock, a collaborative effort of British Military Intelligence and the psychiatric establishment was created in 1921 reportedly on the orders of members of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (also known as Chatham house). The RIIA is an arm of the British Rhodes Round Table group, founded by British imperialist and freemason Cecil Rhodes. The Round Table, functioning through a myriad of offshoots, has been this century’s most effective proponent for the creation of a one world government. Tavistock relies on grants for its operation from the Rockefellers, Carnegies, the British Home Office and large anonymous grants. Initially run by British Military intelligence officer Major John Rawlings, from its inception Tavistock was intended as a coordinating centre for planetary social control using “psychological shock troops a term coined by Reese
In a candid explanation of his particular method of overpowering the will of the individual and ultimately, society, Kurt Lewin stated; “The inner self of the individual displays certain reactions when under tension from the environment. When there is no tension, then the normal inner self of a person is well differentiated, balanced multifaceted, versatile…When a reasonable amount of tension is applied from the environment, then all the various abilities and faculties of the inner self go on alert, ready for effective action. But, when an intolerable amount of tension is applied, then this geometry collapses into a blinded, undifferentiated soup; a primitive, a regressed personality. The person is reduced to an animal; the highly differentiated and versatile abilities disappear. The controlled environment takes over the personality.”
Propaganda. The first chapter was titled Organizing Chaos and opened with, “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are moulded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized.”
Bernays stated: “As civilizations becomes more complex, and as the need for invisible government has been increasingly demonstrated, the technical means have been invented and developed by which the public opinion can be regimented. With the printing press and the newspaper, the telephone, telegraph, radio and airplanes, ideas can spread rapidly and even instantaneously.”
Eric Trist, then-chairman of the Tavistock governors, described their work in 1963 as creating “social turbulence”, based on the Hegelian dialectic of thesis, antithesis, and synthesis.
As Edward Bernays stated, “If we understand the mechanisms and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without them knowing it.”
===Your Thoughts Are Not Your Own: Mind control, mass manipulation and perception management (Sanders, Neil)
Why is that we never listen? The State and its enforcers are gearing up to treat conspiracy theories as foreign based propaganda and brainwashing subterfuge–as they did during the American created “Cold War.” However, does the State brand the many domestic heroes and past Presidents of this former Nation (we are a struggling Imperial State, no longer a nation) as having been under the sway of foreign agents of mind manipulation and control?
Did we really listen to Eisenhower’s and JFK’s warnings to us about the powers of the hidden state and the extreme undemocratic forces at work in this nation?
Did we care that there was a fascist coup attempt by leading industrialists against FDR in the early 1930’s, made public and buried?
What media memories have been retained of the mind control and brainwashing “experiments” on innocent unsuspecting American citizens, many of whom either died or were permanently damaged, that were brought to the light of the public eyes over the past years?
All soon forgotten, but for those who raise these horrendous deeds today and believe that the associated programs were only renamed and buried more adroitly in the bowls of the hidden state and who are now branded as deranged and socially unacceptable “conspiracy theorists” by a government based on lies and mass social brainwashing?
The evidence for the power of the manipulation of the citizens of America , in fact of those of much of the “West”, is overwhelming. Supported by an expertise fine tuned over several generations in covert agencies, foundations and “research” facilities, primarily based in the United States and the United Kingdom, but we refuse to listen and believe because we have been conditioned to find such beliefs abhorrent.
It becomes, for the masses, almost a Schrödinger’s Cat syndrome, we the brainwashed since birth opening the box to see if we are, in fact figuratively dead or alive. I am afraid most of us are now dead. For those not yet absorbed into the collective, the government seems to be gearing up for a final assault.
It is very possible that the last vestiges of free thought in America will soon be extinguished. From the campuses of our universities, to the classrooms of our children to the very restrictions now being placed on dissent within the scientific community under the autocratic religions of environmentalism and the State and Corporate sponsored and controlled acceptable sciences, the flame of independent mind is being intentionally extinguished. The final assault may not be so subtle.
This is right out of the playbook: The American covert State blamed the Soviets and the Maoist Chinese for using mind control programs on Americans and their own citizens in order to justify the unconstitutional, totally immoral and reprehensible massive experimentation with unsuspecting American citizens conducted by Americans seeking the most effective methods of brainwashing and total mind control. Dissent will not be tolerated.
Signs That The Elite Are Feverishly Preparing For Something BIG
What in the world are the elite up to? In recent days, we have learned that the New York Fed is moving a lot of operations to Chicago because of concerns about what a “natural disaster” could do, the federal government is buying 62 million rounds of ammunition commonly used in AR-15 semi-automatic rifles for “training” purposes, and NORAD is moving back into Cheyenne Mountain because it is “EMP-hardened”. In addition, government authorities have scheduled a whole host of unusual “training exercises” all over the nation. So are the elite doing all of this in order to prepare for something really BIG, or should we just chalk up all of this strange activity to rampant government paranoia?
First, let’s talk about what the New York Fed has been doing. What kind of natural disaster would be bad enough to completely shut down the operations of the New York Federal Reserve Bank? It would have to be something very unusual, and apparently the New York Fed is very concerned that such an event could happen. According to Reuters, the New York Fed has been transferring personnel to Chicago and building up its satellite office there just in case a “natural disaster” makes it impossible for normal operations to continue in New York…
The Devil is in the details. What is really going on in the world?
Rome, Italy, Apr 15, 2015 / 02:25 am (CNA).- In a recent Facebook post, well-known Roman exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth said the Islamic State (ISIS) “is Satan,” and he also questioned the lack of response from Western nations.
“ISIS is Satan. Things first happen in the spiritual realms, then they are made concrete on this earth,” he said in an April 8 post on the social media website.
Father Amorth continued, “there are only two spiritual realms: The Holy Spirit and the demonic spirit.”
He said the demonic enters in “because evil is disguised in various ways: political, religious, cultural, and it has one source of inspiration: the devil. As a Christian I fight the beast spiritually.”
“The political world, which today seems to lack a response in face of the massacre of Christians, will also have to fight ISIS and it will do it in a different way. If it advances as it seems to be doing, we ask ourselves what has the West done over the course of the last decades.”
The priest, who founded the International Association of Exorcists, explained that Satan “keeps saying that the world is in his power, and what he says is true. Biblically speaking we are in the last days and the beast is working furiously.”
ISIS took control of the largest Christian city in Iraq, Qaraqosh, in August last year, causing tens of thousands of people to flee.
The terrorist group has persecuted and murdered Christians and other religious minorities in parts of Syria and Iraq.
Fr. Amorth, age 90, has performed over 70,000 exorcisms during the past 29 years. The number is so high because carrying out an exorcism can require multiple sessions and each time the rite is administered it is counted as one instance.
Fr. Amorth has previously spoken about the danger posed by people no longer believing in the devil, as well as a shortage of exorcists.
