Mind Games-Remembering Brainwashing: NY Times


www.nytimes.com

The concept of brainwashing was the brainchild of Edward Hunter, a newspaperman born in 1902, who had covered the rise of fascism in Europe before joining the Office of Strategic Services, the forerunner to the Central Intelligence Agency, during World War II. The Korean War had just begun in 1950 when The Miami News published his article, “ ‘Brain-Washing’ Tactics Force Chinese Into Ranks of Communist Party.”

Interesting, albeit short history on "brainwashing" and mind-control used by the spy orgs over the years. More interesting perhaps is that this is getting mention in a mainstream newspaper outlet. Although it doesn't really delve into THE REAL brainwashing warfare campaign that is taking place as we speak, right now, by all of the "Big 5" MSM outlets. lol


The idea that a totalitarian state could control people like Pavlov’s dogs had appeared in 1940s novels, notably Arthur Koestler’s “Darkness at Noon” and George Orwell’s “1984.” It took Mao’s China — and the forced “confessions” of some American prisoners of war during the Korean conflict — to make brainwashing a centerpiece of 1950s culture.

star and flag bro...you always deliver some of the most intriguing articles...

mind control is so slept on, because most people have a biased version of the facts. They think of a hypnotist or some eccentric scientist in a lab with an rf transmitter and an insane cackle. Then if anyone tries to talk about it, they are instantly labeled as fringe....
