"Mind Control" is to be catalogued with space travel, wrist radios
and ray-guns; yesterday’s fantasy becoming today’s reality.
Certainly, it goes without saying, that "Mind Control" is more
accurately addressed as "Behavior Control;" one leads to the other.
Accommodating simplicity and common understanding, the term "Mind
Control" will be used as a synonym for "Behavior Control."
The topic of "Mind Control" has been the subject of university
laboratories, Madison Avenue marketing firms, intelligence services,
warfare planning (psyops), pharmaceutical developments, electronic
experimentation, psychiatry and medical advances. In brief, "Mind
Control" is as factual as the TV set; alive, functional and ever-
The topic of "Mind Control" is understandably complex. Few doubt the
effect of simple propaganda, as evidenced in various wars.
Unfortunately, one of the success elements of "Mind Control" is the
disdain of those who resist thinking about the topic. Yet, with such
horrors as the Nazi applications during W.W. II, the topic of "Mind
Control" is highly pertinent to the general public. Specifically,
the general public repeatedly asks how a civilized people could
possibly commit such well-documented atrocities.
Current (2006) American politics and warfare confront the "Mind
Control" issue, head-on. Ignorance, apathy and denial are a deadly
combination. "Mind Control" is a function of a variety of
descriptors and applications. Most commonly, the term "Psyops"
(Psychological Operations) is used.
However repugnant, the history of the W.W. II Nazis is the most
common association of the horrors against the human race. The Nazi
horrors were not unique in history, simply the most advertised. As
an example of Mind Control, Israel, depends on that particular
advertisement, for U.S. foreign aid.
Yet, the "Nazi" issue remains
the best example, by virtue of it’s popularly known history.
