THE MEDICAL PROFESSION AND THE
EFFECTS OF WEAPONS
1940 through 1995
The background to the development of anti-personnel electromagnetic
weapons can be traced by to the early-middle 1940ís and possibly
earlier. The earliest extant reference, to my knowledge, was
contained in the U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey (Pacific Survey,
Military Analysis Division, Volume 63) which reviewed Japanese
research and development efforts on a "Death Ray".
Whilst not reaching the stage of practical application, research was
considered to be sufficiently promising to warrant the expenditure
of Yen 2 million during the years 1940-1945. Summarizing the
Japanese efforts allied scientists concluded that a ray apparatus
might be developed that could kill unshielded human beings at a
distance of 5 to 10 miles. Studies demonstrated that, for example,
automobile engines could be stopped by tuned waves as early as 1943.
It is, therefore, reasonable to suppose that this technique has been
available for a great many years? Research on living organisms (
mice and ground hogs) revealed that waves from 2 meters to 60
centimeters in length caused hemorrhage of lungs, whereas waves
shorter than two meters destroyed brain cells.
However, experiments in behaviour modification and mind manipulation
have a grisly past. Nazi doctors at the Dachau concentration camp
conducted involuntary experiments with hypnosis and narco-hypnosis -
using the drug mescaline - on inmates. Additional research was
conducted at Auschwitz, using a range of chemicals including various
barbiturates and morphine derivatives. Many of these experiments
proved fatal. Following the conclusion of the war the U.S. Naval
Technical Mission was tasked with obtaining pertinent industrial and
scientific material that had been produced by the Third Reich and
which may be of benefit to U.S. interests. Following a lengthy
report the Navy instigated Project CHATTER in 1947.
Many of the Nazi scientists and medical
doctors who conducted these and other hideous experiments were later
recruited by the U.S. Army and worked out of Heidelberg prior to
being secretly relocated to the United States under the
PAPERCLIP programme. Under the leadership of Dr. Hubertus Strughold,
34 ex Nazi scientists accepted "Paperclip" contracts, authorized by
the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and were put to work at Randolph Air
Force Base, San Antonio, Texas. By 1953 the CIA, US Navy and the
Army Chemical Corps were conducting their own narco-hypnosis
programmes on unwilling victims that included prisoners, mental
patients, foreigners, ethic minorities and those classified as
It was not until the middle or late 1970ís that the American public
became aware of a series of hitherto secret programmes that had been
conducted over the preceding two decades by the military and
Primarily focusing on narco-hypnosis these covert programmes were
extensive and were assigned project titles:
MKNAOMI, MKSEARCH (MK being understood to stand for Mind Kontrol),
BLUEBIRD, ARTICHOKE and CHATTER. The principal aim of these and
associated programmes was the development of a reliable
"programmable" assassin. Secondary aims were the development of a
method of citizen control.
Particularly relevant was Dr. Jose Delgadoís secret work directed
towards the creation of a "psycho-civilized" society by use of a "stimoceiver."
Delgadoís work was seminal and his
experiments on human and animals demonstrated that electronic
stimulation can excite extreme emotions including rage, lust,
fatigue etc. In his paper "Intracerebral Radio Stimulation and
recording in Completely Free Patients", Delgado observed that:
"Radio Stimulation on different points in the
hippocampus in the four patients produced a variety of effect,
including pleasant sensations, elation, deep thoughtful
concentration, odd feelings, super relaxation (an essential
precursor for deep hypnosis )
coloured visions, and other responses."
With regard to the "coloured
visions" citation, it is reasonable to conclude he was referring to
hallucinations - an effect that a number of so called "victims"
allude to. As far
back as 1969, Delgado predicted the day would soon arrive when a
computer would be able to establish two-way radio communication with
the brain, an event that first occurred in 1974. Lawrence Pinneo, a
neurophysiologist and electronic engineer working for
Research Institute (a leading military contractor),
"developed a computer system capable
of reading a personí s mind. It correlated brain waves on an
electroencephalograph with specific commands. Twenty years ago
the computer responded with a dot on a TV screen. Nowadays it
could be the input to a stimulator (ESB) in advanced stages
using radio frequencies" 
In the event, narco-hypnosis was found,
it is claimed, to be less than reliable, although some writers and
observers dispute this.
Additional studies conducted by Dr. Ewen Cameron, and funded by the
CIA, were directed towards erasing memory and imposing new
personalities on unwilling patients. Cameron discovered that
electroshock treatment caused amnesia. He set about a programme that
he called "de-patterning" which had the effect of erasing the memory
of selected patients. Further work revealed that subjects could be
transformed into a virtual blank machine (Tabula Rasa) and then be
re-programmed with a technique which he termed "psychic driving".
Such was the bitter public outrage, once his work was revealed (as a
result of FOIA searches) that Cameron was forced to retire in
Of interest too is Dr. John C. Lilly 
who was asked by the Director of the National Institute of Mental
Health (NIMH) to brief the CIA, FBI, NSA and other military
intelligence services on his work using electrodes to stimulate,
directly, the pleasure and pain centers of the brain. According to
Lilly he refused. However, as revealed in his book he continued to
do "useful" work for the national security apparatus. However, in
terms of timing this is interesting for these events took place in
1953. Another scientists, Eldon Byrd, who worked for Naval Surface
Weapons Office was commissioned in 1981 to develop electromagnetic
devices for purposes including "riot control", clandestine
operations and hostage removal.
From 1965 through to 1970, Defense Advanced Projects Research Agency
(DARPA), with up to 70-80% funding provided by the military, set in
motion operation PANDORA to study the health and psychological
effects of low intensity microwaves with regard to the so called
This project appears to have been quite
extensive and included (under US Navy funding) studies demonstrating
how to: induce heart seizures, create leaks in the blood brain
barrier and production of auditory hallucinations. Despite attempts
to render the Pandora programme invisible to scrutiny, FOIA filings
revealed memoranda of Richard Cesaro, Director, DARPA, which
confirmed that the programmeís initial goal was to "discover whether
a carefully controlled microwave signal could control the mind."
Cesaro urged that these studies be made "for potential weapons
Following immense public outcry, Congress forbade further research
and demanded that these projects be terminated across the board, but
as Victor Marchetti, a former CIA agent later revealed, the
programmes merely became more covert with a high element of
"deniability" built in to them., and that CIA claims to the contrary
are a "cover story"
Despite the fact that many of the aforementioned projects revolved
around the use of narcotics and hallucigenics, projects ARTICHOKE,
PANDORA and CHATTER clearly demonstrate that "psychoelectronics"
were a high priority. Indeed the author John Marks' anonymous
informant (known humorously as "Deep Trance") stated that beginning
in 1963 mind control research strongly emphasized electronics.
An obscure District of Columbia corporation called Mankind Research
Unlimited (MRU) and its wholly owned subsidiary, Systems Consultants
Inc. (SCI) operated a number of classified intelligence, government
and Pentagon contracts, specializing in, amongst other things:
"problem solving in the areas of
intelligence electronic warfare, sensor technology and
MRUís "capability and
experience" is divided into four fields
"biophysics - Biological
Effects of Magnetic Fields"
"Research in Magneto-fluid
"Geo-pathic Efforts on
The latter focuses on the induction of
illness by altering the magnetic nature of the geography. Also under
Experiments in Telepathy"
"Errors in Human Perception"
"Biologically Generated Fields"
"Metapsychiatry and the
Ultraconscious Mind" (believed to refer to experiments in
telepathic mind control)
"Analysis and Measurement of
Human Subjective States"
"Human Unconscious Behavioural
Employing some old OSS, CIA and
intelligence officers, the company also engages the services of
prominent physicians and psychologists including E. Stanton Maxey,
Stanley R. Dean, Berthold Eric Schwarz plus many more. MRU lists in
its Company Capabilities "brain and mind control."
Despite vehement claims by MRUís chairman that it is not a "front
organization for any branch of the United States Government."
one must treat these claims with a great deal of skepticism.
There followed an extensive hiatus in available information during
the 1980ís and up to the present day. This initially appears to have
closely paralleled Ronald Reaganís Presidency and not surprisingly
flowed onwards during President Bushís term of office.
As a result the once user-friendly Freedom of Information Act became
less accessible and more bureaucratic. Search costs soared and
material that had been (or scheduled to be) de-classified was
reviewed and re-classified. This phenomenon is not an unusual
occurrence in the United States, and tends to shadow the outward
face of Congress. Public outrage leads to a temporary
liberalization, but as public memory recedes (all too quickly) the
old institutionalized covert ways quickly re-engage. We thus move to
more recent times.
During 1989 CNN aired a programme on electromagnetic weapons and
showed a US government document that outlined a contingency plan to
use EM weapons against "terrorists". Prior to the show a
engineer sourced a story claiming that in the context of
conditioning, microwaves and other modalities had regularly been
used against Palestinians. During 1993 Defense News, the prestigious
US weekly announced that Russian government was discussing with
American counterparts the transfer of technical information and
equipment known as "Acoustic Psycho-correction". The Russians
claimed that this device involves,
"the transmission of specific
commands via static or white noise bands into the human
subconscious without upsetting other intellectual functions."
Experts said that demonstrations of this
equipment have shown "encouraging" results "after exposure of less
than one minute," and has produced "the ability to alter behaviour
on willing and unwilling subjects." The article goes on to explain
that combined "software and hardware associated with the (sic)
psycho-correction programme could be procured for as little as
US$80,000. The Russians went on to observe that,
"World opinion is
not ready for dealing appropriately with the problems coming from
the possibility of direct access to the human mind."
psycho-correction dates back to the mid 1970ís and can be used to,
"suppress riots, control dissidents, demoralize or disable opposing
forces and enhance the performance of friendly special operations
One US concern in relation to this
device, was aired by Janet Morris of the Global Strategy Council, a
Washington based think tank established by former CIA deputy
director, Ray Cline, who noted that,
"Ground troops risk exposure to
bone-conducting sound that cannot be offset by earplugs or other
In recent months I met with and discussed Russian
research efforts, with a contact who had visited Russia earlier this
year. He, in turn, met with a number of Russian scientists who are
knowledgeable in this field. I have few doubts that the Defense News
article cited earlier is fundamentally accurate.
Dr. Ross Adey, in his pioneering work determined that that emotional
states and behaviour can be remotely influenced merely by placing a
subject in an electromagnetic field. By directing a carrier
frequency to stimulate the brain and using amplitude modulation to
shape the wave to mimic a desired EEG frequency he was able to
impose a 4.5 CPS theta rhythm on his subjects. Drs Joseph Sharp and
Allen Frey experimented with microwaves seeking to transmit spoken
words directly into the audio cortex via a pulsed-microwave analog
of the speakerís sound vibration. Indeed, Freyís work in this field,
dating back to 1960 gave rise to the so called "Frey effect" which
is now more commonly referred to as "microwave hearing."
Within the Pentagon this ability is now known as "Artificial
and others have compiled an entire library of frequencies and
pulsation rates which can effect the mind and nervous system
During the siege of Waco, Texas, last year, FBI agents discussed
with Russian counterparts the use of Acoustic psycho-correction on
David Koresh and the Branch Davidians. In the event it is understood
that this contingency did not proceed. However, some unusual EM
weapons were deployed at Waco. BBC World News, and additional
film-footage (in the possession of this writer) show both the
Russian equipment being demonstrated, as well as previously unseen
noise generator and an unusual low frequency strobe array in use at
Have weapons of this nature been developed and field tested? Judged
by the number of individuals and groups coming forward with
complaints of harassment the answer, appears, to be yes. Kim Besley,
of the Greenham Common Womenís Peace Camp, has compiled a fairly
extensive catalogue of effects that have resulted from low frequency
signals emanating from the US Greenham Common base, and, apparently,
targeted upon the women protesters. These include: vertigo, retinal
bleeding, burnt face (even at night), nausea, sleep disturbances,
palpitations, loss of concentration, loss of memory, disorientation,
severe headaches, temporary paralysis, faulty speech co-ordination,
irritability and a sense of panic in non-panic situations. Identical
and similar effects have been reported elsewhere and appear to be
fairly common-place amongst so called "victims".
Many of these symptoms have been
associated in medical literature with exposure to microwaves and
especially through low intensity or non thermal exposures.
These have been reviewed by Dr. Robert Becker, twice nominated for
the Nobel Prize, and specialist in EM effects. His report confirms
that the symptoms mirror those he would expect to see, had Microwave
weapons been deployed.
The Scientific American dated April 1994 carried an article entitled
"Bang! Youíre Alive" which briefly described some of the known
arsenal of Less Than Lethal weapons presently available. These
include Laser Rifles, low frequency ""infrasound" generators
powerful enough to trigger nausea or diarrhea. Steve Aftergood of
the Federation of American Scientists (FAS) noted that Non-Lethal
weapons have been linked to "mind control" devices and that three of
the most prominent advocates of non lethality share an interest in
Current Projects include SLEEPING BEAUTY, directed towards the
battlefield use of mind-altering electromagnetic weapons. This
project is headed by Jack Verona, a highly placed Defense
Intelligence Agency (DIA) officer. Dr. Michael Persinger of
Laurentian University is also employed on the project. Other sources
have revealed a project entitled MONARCH which, supposedly, is
directed towards the deliberate creation of severe multiple
It is now the opinion of many that these and related programmes have
been brought under the banner of Non Lethal Weapons, otherwise known
as Less Than Lethal, which are now promulgated in connection with
the doctrine of Low Intensity Conflict, a concept for warfare in the
21st century. It is clear that many of these Pentagon and related
LTL programmes operate under high classification. Others consider
many similar or related "black" programmes are funded from the vast
resources presently available under the US counter-drug law
enforcement policy which has a FY 1995 budget of $13.2 billion.
Defense Secretary, William J Perry, issued a memorandum on Non
lethal Weapons dated 21 July 1994. This was of interest in that it
outlined a tasking priority list for use of these technologies.
Second on the list was "crowd control". Coming in at a poor fifth
"Disable or destroy weapons or weapon development/production
processes, including suspected weapons of mass destruction." It is
therefore clear that Non Lethality is fundamentally seen as
anti-personnel rather than anti-material. In July this year,
Spotlight, a rightist and widely circulated US newspaper reported
that well placed DoD sources have confirmed a classified Pentagon
contract for the development of "high-power electromagnetic
generators that interfere with human brain waves."
The article cited the memorandum of
understanding dated 1994 between Attorney General, Janet Reno, and
Defense Secretary, William Perry for transfer of LTL weapons to the
law enforcement sector. A budget of under $50 million has been made
available for funding associated "black" programmes. Dr. Emery
Horvath, a professor of physics at Harvard University has stated in
connection to the generator that interferes with human brain waves
"These electronic ískull-zappersí are designed to invade the
mind and short circuit its synapses... in the hands of government
technicians, it may be used to disorient entire crowds, or to
manipulate individuals into self destructive acts. Itís a terrifying

These and other
classified weapons are being passed to domestic law enforcement
agencies as shown by the 1995 ONDCP (Office of National Drug Control
Policy) International Technology Symposium,
"Counter-Drug Law Enforcement:
Applied Technology for Improved Operational Effectiveness" that
outlined the "Transition of advanced military technologies to
the civil law enforcement environment"
There are some observers who fear that
the burgeoning narcotics industry is an ideal "cover" in which to
"transit" Non Lethal Technologies to domestic political tasks.
Whether this is merely a misplaced "Orwellian" fear remains to be
seen. However, organized crime is so globally "organized" that
experts now believe it is impossible to eradicate or even
The foregoing gives some necessary background to the origins and
timing surrounding the development of anti-personnel electromagnetic
weapons, and in particular demonstrates that the USA have an intense
and long established interest in mind control and behaviour
modification that spans five decades. As we have seen, fragmentary
information has surfaced for brief spells, only to disappear, once
more, from public scrutiny. It remains to be said that a great many
advances in the realm of electromagnetic field technology and mind
control techniques have, apparently, been made during the sixties,
seventies and eighties. In particular, veterans of the Vietnam war
are still coming forward with bizarre stories, which collectively
(if true?) point to a leap in knowledge that largely remains hidden
behind the thick curtain of security classification.
Major Edward Dames, formerly with the Pentagonís Defense
Intelligence Agency until 1992, was a long serving member of the
highly classified operation GRILL-FLAME, a programme that focused on
some of the more bizarre possibilities of intelligence gathering and
remote interrogation. Known as "remote viewers" GRILL-FLAME
personnel possessed a marked psychic ability that was put to use
"penetrating" designated targets and gathering important
intelligence on significant figures. The programme operated with two
teams; one working out of the top secret NSA facility at Fort George
Meade in Maryland, and the other at SRI. Results are said to have
Following the Oliver North debacle the
Secretary of Defense officially terminated GRILL-FLAME fearing bad
publicity were the programme to become known to the public. The
leading members of the project - including Dames - immediately
relocated to the privately owned and newly formed Psi-Tech, and
continue their work to this day, operating under government
contract. In the course of his work, Dames was (and remains) close
to many the leading figures and proponents Anti-Personnel
Electromagnetic Weapons especially those that operate in the
neurological field. During NBCís "The Other Side" programme,
stated that "The US Government has an electronic device which could
implant thoughts in people." He refused to comment further. The
programme was broadcast during April of last year (1995).
This over-view is merely a "fragmentary" glimpse of programmes that
have been, and continue to be blanketed under tight security
classification. Where information was available through FOIA
filings, a great deal of additional information (in fact the
greatest bulk) was purposely destroyed or otherwise lost. However,
this writer considers that what is available is sufficient to draw
the conclusion that ongoing research, development and deployment of
EM weapon systems that impact on the biological functions of the
body, or more importantly, interfere with the human mind, are cause
for the greatest humanitarian concern.
In an age where the threat of global warfare has diminished as a
result of the easing of tension between east and west, it can be
anticipated that some form of introspection will occur in the
developed western nations. Societies that have been generationally
and economically honed for warfare do not, on the whole, assume "for
peace" production with such vigour and ability. Why this is so, is
not the subject of this paper. Unable to so readily project the
"shadow" outwards on to another nation, the enemy without soon
distils to become the enemy within?
In the United States,
for example, there is a rapidly developing trend of co-operation
between the military and law enforcement agencies in LTL weaponry.
Whilst it is clear that this is driven to some extent by budgetary
considerations, there remain legitimate concerns regarding the
longer term effect on democracy.
The reality of an increasingly (and increasing number of)
impoverished lower class as a result of "swords to shears"
economics, is certain to result in growing civil unrest,
disobedience, strife, inner city turmoil and quite possibly much
that seeking to resolve the underlying causes of these tensions, it
is feared that governments will increasingly resort to more durable
measures to quell domestic dissent. Western industrial nations are
especially prone to these developments for a variety of reasons.
Less Than Lethal Anti Personnel weapons 
are seen in some influential quarters as being the ideal remedy for
future domestic disturbances of this magnitude .
The danger with such possibilities is that western democracy may
begin to fail, or suffer such severe set-backs in its traditional
democratic forms that it will become increasingly repressive and
with innovative technological weapons that do not necessarily kill,
but which render disenfranchised segments of society physically
inactive, emotionally stupefied and incapable of meaningful thought
is a goal of those who favour a "psycho-civilized society" This is a
frightening and all too realistic scenario. Whether by design or by
default such an outcome is nothing short of a dictatorship.
This is the real fear for the future of some classes of Non Lethal
weapon developments and the use to which they have been, or may be
Following the preparation of this paper and prior to its publication
by Dr. Nick Begich in "Earthpulse Flashpoints," a small number of
factual errors and miscellaneous comments have been received and are
now included below for the sake of accuracy.

in correspondence with this writer, advises that:

2) Chomsky also refers to my caveat about the "Spotlight"
article (see footnote 26) concerning the comments ascribed to
Dr. Horvath and observers that,
"Itís not the kind of comment
that a Harvard physicist would be likely to make."
Itís such an
glaring observation that I wonder why I hadnít thought of it
myself. I still havenít heard back from Dr. Horvath, if indeed
such a person exists. This citation, therefore, needs to be
taken with even greater care. On the other hand, Dr. Steve Aftergood of the
Federation of American Scientists has now
written to me advising:
"Spotlight is, to my mind, a thoroughly
non-credible source (as you suggest). Without being able to

 Marks notes that the vast bulk of CIA key documents
were illegally destroyed, in 1973, at the order of the then
DCI, Richard Helms. Other writers have noted the
psychological profile of Sirhan Beshara Sirhan noting a
virtually impregnable "amnesia" which lasts to this day. In
1968 Dr. George Eastabrooks (considered by some to be the
grand-daddy of hypnosis in warfare) told a reporter at the
Providence Evening Bulletin that he had conducted extensive
hypnosis work on behalf of the CIA, FBI and military
intelligence. He went on to say that the key to creating an
effective spy or assassin rests in "creating a multiple
personality, with the aid of hypnosis", a technique which
Eastabrooks considered as "childís play. He went on to
suggest that "Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby could very
well have been performing through hypnosis." Of interest in
this context was a book written by Lincoln Lawrence (a
pseudonym), a former FBI agent who revealed the existence of
a 350 page CIA document that outlined a technique termed
RHIC-EDOM (Radio Hypnosis Intra -Cerebral Control -
Electronic Dissolution of Memory. Certainly many of the
above cited CIA programmes were dedicated to electronically
inducing amnesia. The case studies of Dr. Ewen Cameron in
this context remain the most notable and the most chilling.

 In this connection the work of Dr. James Lin of
Wayne State University should be noted. Lin has written a
book entitled "Microwave Auditory Effects & Applications" in
which he states "The capability of communicating directly
with humans by pulsed microwaves is obviously not limited to
the field of therapeutic medicine."
 Refer to Dr. Robert Becker who has stated "Such a
device has obvious applications in covert operations
designed to drive a target crazy with "voices" or deliver
undetected instructions to a programmed assassin." In 1974
Dr J F Scapitz filed a plan to explore the interaction of
radio signals and hypnosis. He stated that,

hypnotists may be conveyed by modulate electromagnetic
energy directly into the subconscious parts of the human
brain - i.e. without employing any technical devices for
receiving or transcoding the messages and without the person
exposed to such influence having a chance to control the
information input consciously."

the DoD. Despite FOIA filings his work has never been made
available. Also it is interesting to note the date of 1974,
which almost exactly mirrorís the period when the USSR

Objects. The highly regarded New York Times journalist
Howard Blum revealed in his book "Out There" that there is,
indeed, a DoD UFO working group within the DIA. I mention
this aspect only to demonstrate that the military and
intelligence community are not averse to experimenting in
and expending prodigious amounts of tax dollars on some of
the "weirder" areas of life. The remote viewing teams were
disbanded following the Oliver North fiasco by the Secretary
of Defense who was concerned at the potential bad publicity.
Thereafter, Psi-Tech was formed and the work continues.

time and personal money in researching this subject. See

 On October 24-27 1995, the Counter-Drug Technology
Assessment Center held a symposium at Nashua, New Hampshire.
Subjects discussed included the "transition of advanced
military technologies to the civil law enforcement
environment. These include advanced tracking, tagging, radio
frequency and other "non-intrusive" technologies.
 I have certain caveats in citing this material.
Firstly, I have written to Dr. Horvath and the two other
scientists referred to in the Spotlight article. To date
none have replied either to confirm or deny their comments?
One of them, Steve Aftergood is highly reputable and is
known to me indirectly. The other two are not known to me at
all. It is also important to point out that Spotlight is an
ultra right wing publication and one must, therefore, take
these citations with due caution. On the other hand
Spotlight shares a considerable "ethos" with some far right
elements of the military and intelligence community who are
in a position to know about these developments and for their
own reasons may have made this information available.

 The present economic reality (and that for the
foreseeable future) is that the once abundant life-style for
large segments of western citizens will continue to erode.
This will inevitably lead to dissatisfaction that will
increasingly manifest itself in civil disturbance.
Economically powerless to change direction, governments may
possibly resort to authoritarian remedies, fuelling greater
unrest and a repetition of the vicious cycle. This model is
based on the clear evidence that "nations" no longer possess
the economic might to "buck" the markets. The
of finance and the internationalization of "free markets",
has led to (or perhaps resulted from?) giant "stateless"
Trans National Corporations. Collectively, TNCís far
outweigh the economic power of any one sovereign state.
Under the combined onslaught of TNCís acting in concert,
(referred to as "market trends") even G7 (in the form of
combined Central Bank intervention) is often rendered
powerless. Under this scenario the future does not bode
TNCís will continue to accrue to themselves an
increasing proportion of the world ís wealth, whereas nation
states will grow increasingly reliant upon sovereign
indebtedness to finance themselves or gradually assume
"Third World" economies . The burden of "servicing"
sovereign debt is met by a combination of fiscal measures,
primarily increased domestic taxation (direct, indirect and
more hidden measures) and decreased expenditure. Both
measures impact heavily on the poorer classes and yet
generally benefit the TNCís who remain large tax recipients.
Effectively powerless, the political structure in sovereign
states will have little alternative but to present to its
citizens, a facade of being in control if it is to remain in
power. Bereft of economic muscle, old-fashioned real
"muscle" (in the form of soft-kill-technologies) are likely
to become more meaningful to the rule of law concept. It is,
therefore, self evident that LTL weapons will thus be
directed at the "rebellious" poorer classes . The Mexican
"Chiapas" are an early warning sign of how these
socio-economic factors are likely to impact in the future.

"Manufacturing Consent" (Pantheon Books, New York, 1988).
The authors exhaustingly detail the widespread role of the
media to propagandize "elitist" objectives whilst
downplaying or ignoring altogether "hard news" that doesnít
fit the "propaganda model". As a result domestic "consent"
is engineered both by the absence of information that
doesnít fit the "model" and by exclusively featuring stories
or hard news that do. The impact of these techniques
effectively restricts political and economic debate,
sidelining contrary viewpoints. Thus the authors argue that
democracy has already been replaced and that, de facto, a
one party state has been crafted.
 This so called "soft kill" ability is politically
