I have not even looked at the report yet but news articles say celibacy and a culture of secrecy are major causes of the problem. ABN


USA: 73% Say Freedom of Speech Worth Dying For

Wednesday, August 23, 2017

Americans agree freedom of speech is under assault but strongly insist that they are prepared to defend that freedom even at the cost of their lives if necessary.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that an overwhelming 85% of American Adults think giving people the right to free speech is more important than making sure no one is offended by what others say. Just eight percent (8%) think it’s more important to make sure no one gets offended. (Source)

Military thought experiment Part 3

In Parts 1 and 2, we discussed how a well-organized group could: Gain control of a large society by using a small number of clandestine military operatives.

In this post I want to explore what may be indications that this already has been done to American society and how it may still be going on.

The following video explains two important refinements in our usual understanding of MKULTRA.

The first is the use electromagnetism and electromagnetic fields (broadly EM) to control people and the second is that MKULTRA did not end in 1964 as generally believed.

The video:

I would add the following point to this video: The main reason most individuals are harmed or controlled through the use of clandestine techniques is to control their communities.

Besides the clandestine use of drugs and EM as discussed in the video, psychosurgery is another way to destroy an individual’s productivity and harm their community. A lobotomy, for example, can be done with a hypodermic needle filled with ethanol. An operative with little training would be able to do it in a few minutes.

If the time is well chosen, the victim will wake up feeling they have a terrible hangover or that they are disoriented and may be getting sick.

This post is a thought experiment. I invite readers to use their imaginations to consider how easy it would be to accomplish these goals.

Furthermore, I think it is only rational to consider that something like this may already have happened in many/most societies in the world, including the USA.

Seymour Hersh says Wikileaks DNC leaks provided by Seth Rich: audio

This is a must listen. According to Hersh, Seth Rich provided the DNC emails to Wikileaks and Brennan and others in the US government knew this. The entire Russian angle on those leaks was bullshit from day one.

Edit 8:00 AM: According to Jerome Corsi Seth Rich was the LEAKER – insider report – MURDER was John Brennan CIA operation.

Edit 10:00 AM: Wikileaks tweeted the Hersh audio and this adds credibility to it while basically confirming that Assange knows Seth Rich was the leaker. See this: Audio tape of Seymour Hersh discussing WikiLeaks DNC leaks and Seth Rich.

How do you talk to yourself?

A new study seems to show that addressing yourself in the third person can relieve anxiety without you doing any other work.

Third person means your name or your third-person pronoun of choice.

Jason Moser, lead author of the study, says of it:

Essentially, we think referring to yourself in the third person leads people to think about themselves more similar to how they think about others, and you can see evidence for this in the brain.

That helps people gain a tiny bit of psychological distance from their experiences, which can often be useful for regulating emotions. (Talking to yourself in the third person can help you control emotions)
