When I was first looking into conspiracy theories several years ago, I stumbled upon MKUltra, and something struck me. I had just exited a physically and emotionally abusive relationship, and I realized that my abuser had literally programmed me. I used to watch Lifetime movies and mock the women who stayed with their abusers; yet, I never realized how easy it is to truly break someone until I was broken myself. In fact, it does not take much, especially since my abuser was building upon the already low-self esteem I had, as well as extensive abuse from childhood.
At his worst, he drove me to the middle of nowhere, told me to get out of his truck, and beat me until I stopped screaming (and no one could hear my screams anyway). I remember I stopped feeling pain, and it was almost as if I "exited" my body. This happened on many occasions, but I will never forget that feeling of escaping my body.
But this post is not really about me. Rather, I started to realize that even if people have not been in abusive relationships with a specific individual, they are in an abusive relationship with society.It is much easier to break an individual than one believes. If an individual is easily broken by certain means, then it is not that difficult to breakdown a society of individuals. This is how "they" “MKUltra” or fragment society.
Maslow's Hierarchy“Can we get control of an individual to the point where he will do our bidding against his will and even against fundamental laws of nature such as self preservation? (CIA Document, Project ARTICHOKE, MORI ID 144686, 1952)
People are not "weak", but they need to be sustained by certain things. No matter who we are, and no matter what we believe, we all need certain things to be fulfilled. All of us have basic needs like shelter and security, but we also have more advanced needs like esteem and belongingness. You can learn more about Maslow's Hierarchy of needs here:https://www.simplypsychology.org/maslow.htmlWhat happens, then, if those needs are not met, or if they are interfered with? It is important to remember this theory is not the "be all, end all" of human fulfillment, but our needs drive our behaviors and motivations. So, what happens if some of our needs are not met?In MKUltra programming, what "they" truly did was take a person's basic physiological and psychological needs, and they interfered with them, sometimes in disgusting, traumatic ways. Still, sometimes, their means were subtle, too.
From Wikipedia,"MKUltra used numerous methods to manipulate people's mental states and alter brain functions, including the surreptitious administration of drugs (especially LSD) and other chemicals, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, isolation, verbal and sexual abuse (including the sexual abuse of children), and other forms of torture. "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_MKUltraIn order to "MKUltra" an entire society, you need to interfere with a person's basic state of being.
Hypnotize Society“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. ...We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. ...In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons...who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.” ― Edward Bernays, PropagandaThere are two major misconceptions about hypnotism. The first is that one has to be asleep or unconscious for it to work, and the second is that it is totally bogus. Both are incorrect.According to Penn State, “In truth, hypnosis is something most of us have experienced in our everyday lives. If you've ever been totally engrossed in a book or movie and lost all track of time or didn't hear someone calling your name, you were experiencing a state similar to a hypnotic one.The hypnotized person is not sleeping or unconscious—quite the contrary. Hypnosis (most often induced by a hypnotherapist's verbal guidance, not a swinging pocket watch) creates a hyper-attentive and hyper-responsive mental state, in which the subject's subconscious mind is highly open to suggestion.”In MKUltra programming, according to history.com,"MK-Ultra’s “mind control” experiments generally centered around behavior modification via electro-shock therapy, hypnosis, polygraphs, radiation, and a variety of drugs, toxins, and chemicals."So, how do you hypnotize society at large?Hypnosis works through suggestions, triggers, and distractions. The point is that if we are too busy, too tired, or too distracted, it is really easy to be hypnotized. Most of us are too tired to even think at the end of the hard work week, so we zone out on Reddit, video games, or something else. However, what messages are being sent to our minds in a hypnotic trance? For fun, check out subliminal messaging in the national anthem in the 1960s:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDsI-zk6gfEThink about how easy it is to hypnotize society that has an exhaustion epidemic:https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2006/dec/03/healthandwellbeing.featuresBut that’s just the beginning.
Abuse Society“Cluttered minds think alike.” ― Kevin AnsbroHypnosis is easier in a society where people are abused.According to the link above, "The CIA considered prisoners especially good subjects, as they were willing to give consent in exchange for extra recreation time or commuted sentences."Ultimately, hypnosis is a little easier if you break people down.Let’s take a look at modern American society:
I can keep going. But wait a second…before the shills chime in that it "isn't so bad", let met talk about gaslighting.
Gaslight Society“Gaslighting is mind control to make victims doubt their reality.” ― Tracy MaloneIf you do not know what gaslighting is, according to Google, it is a way to manipulate someone by psychological means to make them question their own sanity.You’re not overworked. You are not working hard enough. You are not tired. You just are not getting enough sleep. You’re not depressed. You just need to meditate more.When people start to wake up and realize things are wrong, they are told by society everything is alright and great. I mean, just look at the celebrities! : )According to Psychology Today, here are some signs of gaslighting:
They tell blatant lies.
They deny they ever said something, even though you have proof.
Accepting SocietyMost of us just get too tired at a certain point. For those who “woke up” it is all just too fake. For those who are still asleep, they are just trying to get through the day.Most of us adopt coping mechanisms. Most of us find something that helps us ‘deal’ with reality, whether that be drugs, sex, food, or entertainment. Most of us find something to distract ourselves so that we can, again, become hypnotized.Acceptance is the final stage of the MK Ultra programming.“I’m going to work till I die” is the new reality of the old age in America, for example:https://www.denverpost.com/2017/09/29/retirement-age-rising/Most of us have come to accept the sad reality.Hope?Do not slit your wrists just yet. Despite the travesty or our world, we still have something that scares “them.”They keep us locked up because we have power. Our words and actions have power. We can wake others up, too.Sure, we may not save the entire world, but if we can just get one person to see this reality, then we are doing something right.
