"If you can control a man's thinking, you do not have to worry about his actions. When you determine what a man shall think you do not have to concern yourself about what he will do. If you make a man feel that he is inferior, you do not have to compel him to accept an inferior status, for he will seek it himself . If you make a man think that he is justly an outcast, you do not have to order him to the back door. He will go without being told; and if there is no back door, his very nature will demand one."
Johnson’s use of the phrase is most likely based on a quote of John Adams, the American Revolutionary War patriot and second president of the United States, who wrote in a letter dated 13 February 1818: "The Revolution was effected before the War commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments of their duties and obligations…. This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people, was the real American Revolution".
The vision of the HSCB program is to remain DoD’s flagship socio-cultural modeling program dedicated to working with our partners to develop, transition, and apply technologies, tools, and methods to allow US forces to more effectively understand and interact with the socio-cultural environment so that they have the requisite technologies, tools, and methods for understanding, interacting with, and shaping the human socio-cultural behavioral environment. Working with academia, industry, and government partners, HSCB will cultivate an applied science base in socio-cultural modeling and cross-cultural training; develop computational social science models and training platforms; instantiate models and training systems into software applications; and transition validated, sustainable technologies to programs of record.
SPECIFIC ACTIVITIES INCLUDE
Working with government partners to issue BAAs and resulting awards to conduct applied research, mature and demonstrate that research, and then transition the results of select research to select programs of record.
Working with the warfighter and combat developers to facilitate the development of documented requirements in the socio-cultural modeling domain.
Working with transition partners to transition select HSCB technology that meets the needs of the warfighter and are sustained within programs of record.
The OODA loop (for observe, orient, decide, and act) is a concept originally applied to the combat operations process, often at the strategic level in military operations. It is now also often applied to understand commercial operations and learning processes. The concept was developed by military strategist and USAF Colonel John Boyd.
It is frightening how Dr José Delgado's stimoceiver has, sixty years on, simply been replaced by social media and a better understanding of the human psyche.
The Minerva Initiative is a Department of Defense (DoD)-sponsored, university-based social science research initiative launched by the Secretary of Defense in 2008 focusing on areas of strategic importance to U.S. national security policy.
The goal of the Minerva Initiative is to improve DoD's basic understanding of the social, cultural, behavioral, and political forces that shape regions of the world of strategic importance to the U.S.
So, they're going to infiltrate the universities [top schools] and do what, start manipulating what is being taught in school and control people through their "teachings"? All for national security? Or will they have their own "special" classes for students/professors to volunteer for?

To control the population you need a multidisciplinary approach.
Marginalize or imprison those whose intellect and / or training allows them to see straight through your efforts.
Take control of any University courses that may bring awareness of your actions to the upcoming generation. This knowledge must be suppressed by any means necessary. Make course structures such that everyone passes with little difficulty diluting the entire field of study.
Make the average people fear your agents. Train LEOs such that everyone passes with little effort diluting the entire field. Ensure that anyone with moderate to high intelligence can never get a foothold in Law enforcement.
Divide and conquer by ensuring the media concentrates and expands on differences and provide for perceived differences to be dangerous and needing the attention of LEOs.
Maintain the population at extreme levels of fear, the higher the better.
