Intro

Mind control (also known as brainwashing, coercive persuasion, mind abuse, menticide, thought control, or thought reform) refers to a process in which a group or individual "systematically uses unethically manipulative methods to persuade others to conform to the wishes of the manipulator(s), often to the detriment of the person being manipulated".

Censorship

American media elites practice a brutal, albeit well-concealed, form of "wartime" news censorship, but the mechanisms of this control are now openly acknowledged. John Chancellor, the longtime NBC-TV news anchorman, in his recent autobiographical account of life in the news room, The New News Business (with Walter R. Mears, New York: HarperPerennial, 1995), admitted that, through formal structures such as the Associated Press, informal "clubs" such as the New York Council on Foreign Relations, and the Sun Valley clique, decisions are made, on a daily or weekly basis, about what the American people will be told, and what stories will never see the light of day. (The Cartelization of the News Industry) [1]

Example cases

Propaganda

There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is generally adopted. Arthur Schopenhauer, Die Kunst Recht zu Behalten
"The great masses of people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one. Especially if it is repeated again and again." -- Adolf Hitler
All propaganda must be so popular and on such an intellectual level, that even the most stupid of those toward whom it is directed will understand it... Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way around, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise. -- Adolf Hitler [3]
"It would not be impossible to prove, with sufficient repetition and psychological understanding of the people concerned, that a square is, in fact, a circle." - Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels Nazi German [4]
“A lie told often enough becomes truth” - Vladimir Lenin

"Propaganda Techniques"

Secret services media control operations:

  • Operation Mockingbird - "is a CIA operation to influence domestic and foreign media, whose activities were made public during the Church Committee investigation in 1975 (published 1976)."

      • Creating "Public Opinion": The "Authoritarian Personality"
        • The efforts of the Radio Project conspirators to manipulate the population, spawned the modern pseudoscience of public opinion - polling, in order to gain greater control over the methods they were developing. Today, public opinion polls, like the television news, have been completely integrated into our society. A "scientific survey" of what people are said to think about an issue can be produced in less than twenty-four hours. Some campaigns for high political office are completely shaped by polls; in fact, many politicians try to create issues which are themselves meaningless, but which they know will look good in the polls, purely for the purpose of enhancing their image as "popular." Important policy decisions are made, even before the actual vote of the citizenry or the legislature, by poll results. Newspapers will occasionally write pious editorials calling on people to think for themselves, even as the newspaper's business agent sends a check to the local polling organization. The idea of "public opinion" is not new, of course. Plato spoke against it in his Republic over two millenia ago; Alexis de Tocqueville wrote at length of its influence over America in the early nineteenth century. But, nobody thought to measure public opinion before the twentieth century, and nobody before the 1930's thought to use those measurements for decision-making. It is useful to pause and reflect on the whole concept. The belief that public opinion can be a determinant of truth is philosophically insane. It precludes the idea of the rational individual mind. Every individual mind contains the divine spark of reason, and is thus capable of scientific discovery, and understanding the discoveries of others. The individual mind is one of the few things that cannot, therefore, be "averaged." Consider: at the moment of creative discovery, it is possible, if not probable, that the scientist making the discovery is the only person to hold that opinion about nature, whereas everyone else has a different opinion, or no opinion. One can only imagine what a "scientifically-conducted survey" on Kepler's model of the solar system would have been, shortly after he published the Harmony of the World: 2% for, 48% against, 50% no opinion. These psychoanalytic survey techniques became standard, not only for the Frankfurt School, but also throughout American social science departments, particularly after the I.S.R. arrived in the United States. The methodology was the basis of the research piece for which the Frankfurt School is most well known, the "authoritarian personality" project. In 1942, I.S.R. director Max Horkheimer made contact with the American Jewish Committee, which asked him to set up a Department of Scientific Research within its organization. The American Jewish Committee also provided a large grant to study anti-Semitism in the American population. "Our aim," wrote Horkheimer in the introduction to the study, "is not merely to describe prejudice, but to explain it in order to help in its eradication.... Eradication means reeducation scientifically planned on the basis of understanding scientifically arrived at." [8]

  • John Swinton
    • In 1953, in a toast before the New York Press Club, John Swinton, former Chief of Staff of the New York Times and the "Dean of his Profession" stated: (part extracted)
      • "If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of journalists is to destroy the truth; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell this country and this race for their daily bread. We are the tools and vessels for rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes." [10]

Psychological Warfare

Psychological Warfare (PSYWAR), or the basic aspects of modern psychological operations (PSYOP), have been known by many other names or terms, including Psy Ops, Political Warfare, “Hearts and Minds”, and Propaganda.[1] Various techniques are used, by any set of groups, and aimed to influence a target audience's value systems, belief systems, emotions, motives, reasoning, or behavior. It is used to induce confessions or reinforce attitudes and behaviors favorable to the originator's objectives, and are sometimes combined with black operations or false flag tactics. Target audiences can be governments, organizations, groups, and individuals.

Hypnosis

A presumed altered state of consciousness in which the hypnotized individual is usually more susceptible to suggestion than in his or her normal state. In this context, a suggestion is understood to be an idea or a communication carrying an idea that elicits a covert or overt response not mediated by the higher critical faculties (this is, the volitional apparatus). [12]

  • "It is a proven fact that when we are watching television our brain goes into a state of lowered alertness. What are alpha-waves? Alpha-waves are oscillating electrical voltages in the brain. They oscillate in the range of 7.5-13 cycles per second and occur in relaxed states such as meditation and under hypnosis. Usually the brain shows alpha wave patterns when we are very relaxed and passive. Such brain activity is observed naturally before one falls asleep or immediately after awakening. Resting and day dreaming are activities that can cause this alpha-wave pattern also, but after resting or day dreaming the brain returns to full alertness (beta-waves)." [13]
  • Hypnosis as used to promote sexually illegal and immoral acts: Hypnotists will tell you that a hypnotized person will not do anything under hypnosis that they would not do in a conscious state of mind. That is a lie! All of us have a consciousness that serves as a filter for moral conduct and when you put that filter to sleep, such as what occurs under hypnosis, you have essentially bypassed the psyche part of the mind that uses critical judgement and is essential and vital to living a moral life. [14]

Neuro-linguistic programming

  • video: "Obama Clearly Using Covert Hypnosis Methods"
    • "Is Barack Obama a brilliant orator, captivating millions through his eloquence? Or is he deliberately using the techniques of neurolinguistic programming (NLP), a covert form of hypnosis developed by Milton H. Erickson, M.D.? A fundamental tool of "conversational hypnosis" is pacing and leading - a way for the hypnotist to bypass the listeners critical faculty by associating repeated statements that are unquestionably accurate with the message he wants to convey. In his Denver acceptance speech, Obama used the phrases "thats why I stand here tonight," "now is the time," and "this moment" 14 times. Paces are connected to the lead by words such as "and," "as," "because," or "that is why." For example, "we need change" (who could disagree?)"and that is why I will be your next President." Techniques of trance induction include extra slow speech, rhythm, tonalities, vagueness, visual imagery, metaphor, and raising of emotion. Hypnotists often have patients count. In a speech after the primaries closed, Obama said: "Sixteen months have passed (paused) "Thousands" (pause) "of miles" (pause) "Millions of voices". Hypnotists call this a distraction technique: sending the dominant hemisphere on an assignment involving linguistic processes, thus opening the non-dominant hemisphere to suggestion."

Subliminal programming

  • Subliminal perception is a deliberate process created by communication technicians, whereby you receive and respond to information and instructions without being aware of it. Messages in the form of printed words, pictures or voices presented either very rapidly or very obscurely bypass your conscious awareness. Anything consciously perceived can be evaluated, criticized, discussed, argued, and possibly rejected. Anything programmed subliminally to your subconsciousness meets no resistance. This subliminal information is stored in your brain and capable of influencing your judgment, behavior and attitudes.

Salience

Professor Hugh Rank of Governors State University proposes an “intensification/downplay” schema to analyse methods of political communication and persuasion in his website How to Analyse Political Rhetoric. Intensifying involves the techniques of repetition, association and composition, while downplay involves omission, diversion and confusion. [16]

See also: Rhetoric Analysis

Intensification

Repetition

  • Repetition is effective because people feel comfortable with what they are familiar with, and repetition creates familiarity. Most people have favourite songs, television programs, etc., that they listen to or watch repeatedly. Chants, prayers, rituals, and dances are all based on repeated patterns; we learn them and remember them through repetition. Politicians often repeat key words or themes throughout a speech, and also use internal repetition techniques such as rhyme, alliteration and anaphora (repetition of the same word or group of words at the beginning of successive clauses or sentences). Slogans are another repetition device used by politicians in the hopes that, like in advertising, audiences hearing a message many times will become saturated and remember the message without conscious effort.

Association

  • Association is the process of linking an idea or product with other ideas, events or products which the audience either likes and respects, or hates and fears, depending on the aim of the association. Politicians may use association by directly asserting, for example, their connection with certain groups and communities with which the audience identifies or respects. They may also use indirect language to establish associations, for example, metaphors or allusions. Association may be established with images, music, colours, flags, choice of location and timing for a speech, etc., as well as words. Association may take the form of literary, historical or religious references or allusions.

Composition

  • The way a presentation is composed can be used as a technique of intensifying. The type of language used (negative or positive, active or passive constructions, simple or abstract, etc.), the level of detail, the use of absolutes (all, always, never, etc.) and qualifiers (perhaps, some, a number of, maybe, etc.), metaphors, rhetorical questions, exaggerations, the order of presentation and the overall organisation of a speech can all be used to emphasise certain ideas or themes. Non-verbal elements can also contribute to composition: facial expression, gestures, tone of voice, etc. also play a role.

Downplaying

Omission

  • All communication involves decisions about what information to include and what to omit and therefore is limited, slanted or biased in one way or another. However, politicians often choose to deliberately omit information about disadvantages, hazards or side-effects of their proposals. What US politician, proposing military action in another country has reminded the US population that his proposed action is likely to result in the deaths of a certain number of soldiers not through enemy attacks, but from “friendly fire”? Politicians can also be expected to omit information about any criminal or scandalous activities of their own or their associates in the past, as well as information about their own mistakes or failures. Conflicts of interest may be covered-up and information about the source of controversial information may be omitted also. Finally, information about the opposition’s good points is likely to be omitted. Subtle forms of omission include quotes taken out of context and half-truths, and can be hard to detect.

Diversion

  • Diversion techniques distract focus or divert attention away from key issues, usually by intensifying unrelated issues, or trivial factors. Diversion techniques include attacks on the personality and past of opposition figures rather than their relevant policies, appealing to the emotions – fears, hopes, desires – of the public rather than their reason, directing attention to the short-comings of the opposition rather than to one’s own weaknesses, evasion of difficult topics, emphasis on superficialities or details rather than substance, and finally, jokes or other entertainment to distract attention.

Confusion

  • Politicians sometimes make their presentations so complex and chaotic that those listening get tired or overloaded, and give up on trying to follow. Confusion, whether caused by accidental error or deliberate deception, can hide or obscure important issues. Politicians may seek to confuse their audience by using unfamiliar or ambiguous words, technical jargon, euphemisms, round-about or rambling sentence construction, inappropriate or unclear analogies, non-logical sequences of thought or linking of ideas, manipulation of statistics, over complexity, information overload, etc. After introducing confusion, the politician is in the position to offer an easy answer, a simple solution to complex problems, telling the audience: “trust me”.

Dumbing down

Internet Parody about learning channels.
What you should know about Vs What the MSM tells you


Media: Keep the adult public attention diverted away from the real social issues, and captivated by matters of no real importance.

Oversimplification

This is achieved by:

Disengaging their minds: sabotaging their mental activities; providing a low-quality program of public education in mathematics, logic, systems design and economics; and discouraging technical creativity. Ensure that the public is unable to understand the technologies and methods for its control and slavery. "The quality of education for the lower classes must be of the poorest sort, so that the gap of ignorance isolating the inferior class of upper class is and remains incomprehensible to the lower classes."


Engaging their emotions: Appealing to emotion is a technique to bypass rational analysis, and therefore the critical individuals. In addition, the use of emotional can open the door to the subconscious mind to implement ideas, desires, fears, impulses, or behavior. Increasing their self-indulgence and their indulgence in emotional and physical activities, by unrelenting emotional affrontations and attacks (mental and emotional rape) by way of constant barrage of sex, violence, and wars in the media - especially the TV and the newspapers.


Addressing the public as young childrens: Most advertisements for the general public-use speeches, arguments, characters, and tone particularly infantile, often close to the debilitating, as if the audience was a young child or mentally handicapped.

  • Newspeak = Basic English
    • At the start of World War II, Tavistock operatives, including Brig. Gen. John Rawlings Rees in the Psychological Warfare Directorate, were busy at work on a secret language project. The target of that project was not the ``enemy``, but the English language itself, and the English-speaking people. The Tavistock crowd had picked up on the work of British linguist C.K. Ogden , who had created a simplified version of the English language using some 850 basic words (650 nouns and 200 verbs), with rigid rules for their use. Called "Basic English" or "Basic" for short, the product was ridiculed by most English-speaking intellectuals; Ogden's proposal to translate Classic literature, such as Marlowe and Shakespeare, into Basic, was rightfully attacked as an effort to trivialize the greatest expressions of English-language culture. But in the bowels of the psywar directorate, the concepts behind Basic were key to large-scale control of dangerous "thought". A simplified English language limits the degrees of freedom of expression, and inhibits the transmission of meaning through metaphor. (For a more detailed discussion of language and metaphor, see Lyndon LaRouche, ``On the Subject of Metaphor, Fidelio, Fall 1992. It is then easy to create a ``reality that can be shaped through the mass media, such as radio. A reduced language is a straitjacket for the human mind. [17]


Giving them what they desire - in excess - "junk food for thought" - and depriving them of what they really need. (Bread and circuses philosophy)

  • Televised sport events. The 'elite' know many people want to align themselves with the dominators (winners), not the suppressed (losers). They hypnotize and pacify people with simple systems of glorified male competition and domination. A politically harmless, commercial venting system for the boredom and anger of many people - especially 'lower-class' young males.


Encourage the public to indulge in mediocrity

  • Movies encouraging to be "cool" - to be vulgar/uncultivated
  • Music encouraging promiscous sexual activities such as "Reggeaton", one reason behind the high teenage pregnancy? [19] [20] [21]

Encourage the public to criminal behaviour

  • "...He explained that the companies we work for had invested millions into the building of privately owned prisons and that our positions of influence in the music industry would actually impact the profitability of these investments. I remember many of us in the group immediately looking at each other in confusion. At the time, I didn’t know what a private prison was but I wasn't the only one. Sure enough, someone asked what these prisons were and what any of this had to do with us. We were told that these prisons were built by privately owned companies who received funding from the government based on the number of inmates. The more inmates, the more money the government would pay these prisons. It was also made clear to us that since these prisons are privately owned, as they become publicly traded, we’d be able to buy shares. Most of us were taken back by this. Again, a couple of people asked what this had to do with us. At this point, my industry colleague who had first opened the meeting took the floor again and answered our questions. He told us that since our employers had become silent investors in this prison business, it was now in their interest to make sure that these prisons remained filled. Our job would be to help make this happen by marketing music which promotes criminal behavior, rap being the music of choice. He assured us that this would be a great situation for us because rap music was becoming an increasingly profitable market for our companies, and as employee, we’d also be able to buy personal stocks in these prisons." [22]


Rewriting history and law and subjecting the public to the deviant creation, thus being able to shift their thinking from personal needs to highly fabricated outside priorities. (Excerpt from"Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars)

Replace the rebellion with guilt

  • Make the individual believe he is solely responsible for his misfortune, because of the lack of his intelligence, his capabilities, or his efforts. Thus, instead of revolting against the economic system, the individual blames himself, resulting in a depression, one of whose effects is inhibition of the action. And without action, no revolution ...

Overstimulation

(todo)

  • "Stimulation is the action of various agents (stimuli) on muscles, nerves, or a sensory end organ, by which activity is evoked" [23]
    • External (messages, sounds, lights, vibrations, ...)
    • Internal (sugars, hormones, ...)
  • Empathy stimulation (emotional message propaganda)

Desensitization

  • Desensitization By Repetition And Exposure
    • 6 Stage Attitudinal Change Process
      • Stage 1: An idea, belief or practice, which is so offensive to prevailing morality that it is scarcely discussed in public, is advocated by an "expert" or "respected" social commentator in a prestigious forum or an influential "talking head" utters it on TV.
      • Stage 2: Initially, the public is shocked if not outraged that such a taboo subject is publicly raised.
      • Stage 3: This moral outrage itself becomes the subject of the "debate."
      • Stage 4: In the process of the public "debate," of dissection and repetition of the once shocking subject matter by "experts" and "talking heads," a gradual dulling effect occurs on public consciousness and morality and the once taboo subject slowly becomes more acceptable.
      • Stage 5: The majority of people are no longer shocked by the once taboo subject.
      • Stage 6: The majority no longer outraged, "experts" and "talking heads" begin to argue various positions from the moderate to the extreme; or, they accept the basic premiss, arguing, instead, on the means to achieve it.
  • The report, covering 319 pages, was written by 14 new science scientists under the supervision of Tavistock and 23 top controllers including B. F. Skinner, Margaret Mead, Ervin Lazlo and Sir Geoffrey Vickers, a high-level British intelligence officer in MI6. It will be recalled that his son-in-law, Sir Peter Vickers Hall, was a founding member of the so-called conservative “Heritage Foundation.” Much of the 3000 pages of “recommendations” given to the Reagan administration in January 1981 were based upon material taken from Willis Harmon’s “CHANGING IMAGES OF MAN.” I was privileged to receive a copy of “THE CHANGING IMAGES OF MAN” from my intelligence colleagues five days after it was accepted by the United States government. What I read shocked me, as I realized I was looking at a blueprint for a future America, unlike anything I had ever seen before. The nation was to be programmed to change and become so accustomed to such planned changes that it would hardly be noticeable when profound changes did occur. We have gone downhill so fast since “THE AQUARIAN CONSPIRACY” (the book title of Willis Harmon’s technical paper) was written, that today, divorce draws no stigma, suicide is at an all time high and raises few eyebrows, social deviations from the norm and sexual aberrations, once unmentionable in decent circles, are now commonplace and excite no special protest. As a nation we have not noticed how “CHANGING IMAGES OF MANKIND” has radically altered our American way of life forever. Somehow we were overcome by the “Watergate Syndrome.” For a while we were shocked and dismayed to learn that Nixon was nothing but a cheap crook who hobnobbed with Earl Warren’s Mafia friends at the beautiful home they built for him adjoining the Nixon estate. When too many “future shocks” and news headlines demanded our attention, we lost our way, or rather, the huge number of choices with which we were and still are daily confronted, confused us to such a degree that we were no longer able to make the necessary choices. [24]
    • Example: ReligiousTolerance.org, an Ontario-based nonsectarian website that collects and publishes survey data regarding religious trends of all kinds, says that today, "Interest in new religious movements (e.g. New Age, Neopaganism) is growing rapidly. In particular, Wiccans are doubling in numbers about every 30 months" ["Trends Among Christians in the U.S."]. The New Age movement is by no means a dying influence. If anything, many New Age beliefs have simply become so mainstream that they no longer seem as unconventional or as spiritually menacing as they once did. Both the language and the ideology of the New Age have gradually become so familiar in the culture of American religion that evangelicals simply don't pay much attention to the New Age anymore. The whole subject has the feel of yesterday's news. [25]
