MK-ULTRA – What was MK-ULTRA?
MK-ULTRA is becoming more and more well known as time goes on. It is increasingly mentioned within conspiracy “communities”. The theory about MK-ULTRA is that it was a government funded CIA operation aimed to investigate how the human mind could be controlled through various means. The project was rumored to last for 10 years between the years 1952-1963, with some suggesting operations continued all the way up until 1977. The main proponent of the MK-ULTRA theory is investigative reporter & past US congressional seat candidate Jon Rappaport. More details are available from this official document titled Project MK-ULTRA, The CIA’s program of research in behavioral modification, originally published by the New York Times in 1977.
How would MK-ULTRA work
Allegedly, it would start when the subject or patient is very young. It involves electric shocks, torture, lights, spinning tables, drugs, sleep deprivation, hypnosis, mind control, amnesia, etc. If enough trauma is introduced, it results in a split in the personality, as the patient could not deal with the pain of the trauma. The split or sub-personalities would then be programmed to work for the CIA as agents, to do assassinations, blackmail, espionage, etc. The subject would respond to certain triggers which are usually words or symbols. There are people who have testified as the victims of such experiments. And there are reported CIA documents which mention the MK-ULTRA mind control program.
MK-ULTRA Official Documentation
Official documentation about the MK-ULTRA program is available online. The site includes images of the official documentation.
“21 December 1954 MEMORANDUM FOR: Director of Central Intelligence”
SUBJECT: Project MKULTRA, Subproject 35
4. Practically, the control seems to be established as well as circumstances permit. Certainly, as long as the individual is alive and in his present position, we have every reason to expect his complete cooperation in the future as in the past, unless through some act or fault of our own he is alienated. Even in the event of his death or incapacity, there appears to be a reasonable chance of continuing the project. If these probabilities seem sufficient to obtain an adequate return for the expenditure, there can be no legal objection to this aspect of the project.”
5 May 1955
A portion of the Research and Development Program of TSS/Chemical Division is devoted to the discovery of the following materials and methods:
1. Substances which will promote illogical thinking and impulsiveness to the point where the recipient would be discredited in public.
2. Substances which increase the efficiency of mentation and perception.
3. Materials which will prevent or counteract the intoxicating effect of alcohol.
4. Materials which will promote the intoxicating effect of alcohol.
5. Materials which will produce the signs and symptoms of recognized diseases in a reversible way so that they may be used for malingering, etc.
6. Materials which will render the induction of hypnosis easier or otherwise enhance its usefulness.
7. Substances which will enhance the ability of individuals to withstand privation, torture, and coercion during interrogation and so-called “brain-washing”.
8. Materials and physical methods which will produce amnesia for events preceding and during their use.
9. Physical methods of producing shock and confusion over extended periods of time and capable of surreptitious use. ”
Scope of MK-ULTRA
MK-ULTRA is held to have originated by the Navy in 1947 as Project CHATTER and then expanded by the CIA in 1950 with Project BLUEBIRD, renamed to PROJECT ARTICHOKE and finally developed into Project MK-ULTRA in 1953. MK-DELTA was the term given to the mind control operations of the CIA abroad. Project SPELLBINDER was used to create Manchurian candidates (sleeper assassins under mind control – Jason Bourne). MK-SEARCH was the title given for an operation commenced in 1964 to discover the perfect truth drug so that spies would divulge their secrets. Some suggest that practically all-powerful individuals in society are under the mind control of some sort, but that leads to the unanswered question as to who would be doing the programming itself. It is said that we cannot know the full extent of the operations of MK-ULTRA because all documentation was destroyed by CIA director Richard Helms in 1973.
The Scope of work done by the CIA was enormous, with the Supreme Court noting that the regime consisted of up to 149 subprojects. The CIA then used front operations such as universities and research centers to carry out the experiments in its name.
MK-ULTRA is linked to a wide variety of projects and organizations. It is claimed that over two million Americans are victims of CIA mind Control in one way or another. “The Montauk Boys“ is a term given to a style of electronic programming given typically to young boys, and there is allegedly a major Montauk programming center in every major U.S city. The idea is that people who are subjected to mind control are not aware of it, as they have no conscious memory of it. This path swiftly leads to Aliens and time travel.
Mind Control in Psychiatry
MK-ULTRA fits into the broader theory that mind control is all around us, at all times, through advertising, media, radio and television. It has also been linked to psychiatry. Investigator reporter Jon Rappoport believes that the use of psychiatry is all about mind control, with the use of psychiatric drugs all about “stuffing you back in”. The underlying idea being that the mind is infinitely expansive and drugs merely try to put you into a mindset which is considered normal by standard definitions. It is alleged that some of the current psychiatric drugs which are seen today fit the description as per the above CIA draft – Zoloft, Prozac, Adderall.
It is rumored that the father of ADHD, Dr. Leon Eisenberg, confessed in 2009 that ADHD was a prime example of a fictitious disease. While “father” may be a stretch, there is no doubt that he contributed significantly to the field on which treatment of these types of diseases are based. This rumor is somewhat true. He did say in an interview in German something similar to “ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease” – However, when allowing for variances in translation, it can really be interpreted more that ADHD was more that genetic predispositions for ADHD were vastly overestimated.
Despite this, it is still quite obvious that ADHD is a pure work of fiction. The following is an interview between German Newspaper Der Spiegel and Harvard Psychologist Jerome Kagan:
SPIEGEL: In the 1960s, mental disorders were virtually unknown among children. Today, official sources claim that one child in eight in the United States is mentally ill.
Kagan: That’s true, but it is primarily due to fuzzy diagnostic practices. Let’s go back 50 years. We have a 7-year-old child who is bored in school and disrupts classes. Back then, he was called lazy. Today, he is said to suffer from ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). That’s why the numbers have soared.
SPIEGEL: Experts speak of 5.4 million American children who display the symptoms typical of ADHD. Are you saying that this mental disorder is just an invention?
Kagan: That’s correct; it is an invention. Every child who’s not doing well in school is sent to see a pediatrician, and the pediatrician says: “It’s ADHD; here’s Ritalin.” In fact, 90 percent of these 5.4 million kids don’t have an abnormal dopamine metabolism. The problem is, if a drug is available to doctors, they’ll make the corresponding diagnosis.
There are other obvious reasons why ADHD is in fact not an illness or even a disorder. ADHD cannot be proven, as there are no lab tests. There is not even anything that proves it has anything to do with the brain. The symptoms include “being easily distracted” and “does not like to sit still”. There is simply no objective way to measure a child’s behavior like this. In other words, ADHD does not pass the basic scientific standard in order to be classified as an illness. The only reason that it is so prevalent in society is because of the strength of the pharmaceuticals in its promotion of drugs; an area covered extensively on the web which is outside the ambit of the article.
This is a term used to describe Aldous Hudley’s “Brave New World which some claim we are entering into. The idea behind it is that doctors and scientists are seen as experts at life. Thus Because everything has a cause and an effect and the human experience is simply a bunch of chemicals interacting in our brains, there is nothing wrong with simply altering the level of neurotransmitters to maintain a ‘happy’ human. T Policy Makers would decide how much of each “type” of human is needed to maintain an “effective” society. This is known as extreme social engineering.
Theorists use the frog in boiling water analogy quite often. While the above might seem quite far flung and ridiculous, the Brave New World would occur in stages. Each year there would be more and more diseases which emerge due to various reasons. People would turn to science in order to cure such diseases. The Scientists would invent more labels to solve them. Thus the social engineering would not be announced overnight but would really be a gradual slide over decades. People do not question doctors, and they are looked up to and respected in our society. A prime example is the previously mentioned ADHD, a disorder which has no basis in science but is widely accepted. This is due to the unquestioned respect that is given to the medical industry. And not only is ADHD a fictional disease, but the medical solutions to the imagined problems have very real and physically disastrous consequences for it’s consumers.
There is documentation backing up MK-ULTRA. We do have official documentation and a Supreme Court ruling referencing its operations. We have testimonies of people on record. It was initiated as a response after US prisoners of war were experimented on as test dummies for mind-control in North Korea. Thus we do have all reasonable standards of proof for the existence of a very shady practice. Though MK-ULTRA has been discontinued and its head operations had stated that its operations were all but useless, it is naive to believe that it is simply not going on under another acronym.
That said it is, like a number of theories, perhaps somewhat overblown. It is cited in every major event or mass shooting that the main figure is for some reason mind controlled. Some go as far to say that most significant political or military figures are under mind control of some sort. This is not the case, and all evidence seems to indicate that the experiments did not go smoothly. Thus at this point, we have evidence that the CIA committed horrific experiments on a number of people in the name of documenting behavioral changes that amounting to mind control. The claims that millions of Americans are under mind control or that every significant figure is under mind control is unsubstantiated and false until proven true.
With regard to medical Fascism, the increase of prescription drugs is on the rise; however, the public is now more or less aware of the dangers of over-prescription and of taking supplements in particular. Many are too savvy to blindly take pills from doctors and are waking up, looking to alternative therapies and eastern and preventative medicine. However, it should be noted that this is almost solely due to independent investigative reporters on its effects and the operations of the pharmaceutical industry. Nothing to do whatsoever with a government crackdown looking out for the benefit of its citizens. Thus medical fascism and the brave new world has been deterred not because of government policy, but actually in spite of it.
