There are, for the sake of argument, some very practical uses for mind control. Basically, you take an ordinary, sane, well-adjusted and reasonably intelligent person with decent morals and make them do a horrendous, unconscionable act. In other words, turn them into a mindless robot. Maybe even a mass murderer. There have been several events in the past few years that make me suspect this could happen, such as the attempted murder of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson, Arizona but the recent shooting in a Colorado movie theater has brought them to the forefront. I am not offering an excuse for what happened in Aurora, Colorado but I will incorporate that event into my analysis. The major exception to this argument is the fact that many incidents of mass-murder have been committed on American soil by people who have a complete hatred for America such as the Islamic terrorist attack on 9-11-2001 and a few other foiled plots of equal terror also planned by followers of the cult of Islam. These people who participated in these acts had their own form of mind-control that didn’t rely on drugs, they had their Koran.
Step back a few years and recall the apparent suicide of former Secretary of Defense James V. Forrestal who jumped to his death from his 16th floor room in Bethesda Naval Hospital on May 22, 1949. There still rages a controversy over the government coverup because the autopsy results have never been released. Books have been written on the subject and numerous hits come up on Google and there is even a passage about it on Wikipedia. Two years before James Forrestal committed suicide a new mind-altering drug called LSD was introduced. Wikipedia has this additional information which also makes a curious reference. I have included the hyperlinks to the footnotes for additional reference.
Introduced by Sandoz Laboratories, with trade-name Delysid, as a drug with various psychiatric uses in 1947, LSD quickly became a therapeutic agent that appeared to show great promise. In the 1950s, officials at the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) thought the drug might be applicable to mind control and chemical warfare; the agency’s MKULTRA research program propagated the drug among young servicemen and students.
One of the more complete stories on the death of James Forrestal can be read here in the article entitled: Who Killed James Forrestal? Was There A Cover-up? Read the article for yourself and examine the known evidence and the suspicions that still remain. Several years ago, before the Internet was born and few people had the ability to do in-depth research, I read about how some people had suspected that James Forrestal had been given LSD which caused him to sustain severe psychiatric delusions that resulted in his suicide. Forrestal had his enemies and it could have been one of the first uses of this new drug to accomplish a practical field experiment.
So what does this have to do with anything today? Today we are living in a country where draconian laws are being written that could have a catastrophic effect on our population. We have a government so far to the left that they have constructed concentration camps for American citizens. These concentration camps are being called “internment centers” and the U.S. Army has even posted job bulletins for soldiers who want to work there. We have a government so close to being a dictatorship that they have declared patriotic Americans to be potential terrorists. We have a government so bent on being totalitarian that they have written laws claiming the authority to deprive ordinary American citizens of their Constitutional freedom and their right to a trial – in fact, the controversial provisions of the most recent National Defense Authorization Act say the government can arrest and detain indefinitely anyone it feels to be a threat to our nation’s leaders. We have a government who now flies the same Predator drones over American skies that are being used in the war in Afghanistan to spy on and kill Islamic terrorists. We have a government who issues training orders to Army personnel that when they are called on will no longer fire warning shots at dissident Americans – they will shoot to kill. And they post questionnaires asking soldiers if they would shoot and kill fellow Americans. But how are they going to get people to carry out their orders and do these things?
The question that ties all of this together is this: What would it take to get our American soldiers to shoot and kill a fellow American on U.S. soil? What could possibly make a patriotic soldier who has taken an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America to throw away all of his morals and character to commit murder. Is there any difference between a soldier who is told to follow such horrible orders and a college student who commits mass-murder for no reason in a movie theater? If necessary, would it require some form of artificial mind-control drug to get them to obey such draconian orders? How about a few more experiments to see how effective these drugs could be. Take any ordinary person and see how far you can make them go to do these unthinkable acts.
