It was conducted in the shadows, far from any scrutiny. It began in the ’50s and was apparently stopped in the ’70s. But CIA veterans say the research continues. You may find it hard to believe, and the whole field is dismissed as being the province of paranoid conspiracy theories, but mind control is going on.
You’ll hear Dr. Begich make reference to MK-Ultra in this program. This was a super-secret and illegal CIA human research program run by the Office of Scientific Intelligence. This program used many drugs to manipulate individual mental states and alter brain function. It’s a little difficult to get total information about it since then-CIA director, Richard Helms, ordered all the MK-Ultra files destroyed back in 1973. What were they trying to hide, do you think? That offence should be a prison sentence, shouldn’t it? According to sworn testimony in front of the U.S. Congress’ Church Committee in 1975, these mind control experiments were conducted without any knowledge or consent of the subjects. There’s no other way to put it … this was a crime against humanity of the 1st degree.
Of course, the U.S. hasn’t been the only country traipsing through this mucky terrain, but it is perhaps the biggest democracy involved, and that should give us some pause. You’ll hear a little bit more about this in our program today, but I would recommend that you research it a little more. It’s pretty horrific stuff, but essential to know about. MK-Ultra is the illegal CIA program you’re looking for.
And in the middle of this sickness, where the sickest people control our political and economic structures, comes Norberto Keppe‘s Analytical Trilogy, with its beautifully conceived science that gives us a way to understand these crazy things we see around us. His clear view of human psychopathology is extremely well articulated in all of his many books, and his explorations of how we the people have given power to these unbalanced powerful people in charge is food for thought. We have to wake up, and fast, and start giving more value to those inner aspects of our essential structure – goodness, truth, beauty, dignity, ethics. Right now, we’re all pretty lost in this inverted worldview that puts money above work and aggression above conciliation and dialogue. And technology at the service of whatever perverted idea the men and women in the shadows want to dream up. Which is the subject of our program today.
