This would be one of the most important discovery to me, a psychology major, I have seen on this website. I know that Skinner was involved with this kind of research in the 60's and 70's - I will have to check out more of your work.
I think the problem arises when the government tries to control how we think -edit on 26-11-2012 by darkbake because: (no reason given)
Why would they need to do something like this to their own people?
Why do you think what you think?
Where did you learn it?
Where does your input come from?
Who controls that information?
What are their motives and agendas?
Can you really trust that "what you know" is not implanted, indoctrinated thought?
Do you have the strength to question everything - even that which you truly believe is correct?

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.
Just wanted to drop a quick note to suggest that this is not their approach at all.
DARPA is crowd-sourcing its projects and announcing contests with giant prizes for winners.
They have changed their tactic (if that ever was their tactic, it wasn't during the cold-war, for instance; again: see John Nash, Game-Theory and cybernetics) and they are trying to turn it into a big exciting research party.
There's no subterfuge, it's all right there where Hef posted it.
One way of looking at it might be that this is no longer, if it ever was, a secret, carefully plotted course; it's a drag race. .edit on 26-11-2012 by Xoanon because:
Lately it seems as though they have simply thrown caution to the wind. Many instances of us seeing quite good glimpses of what they are doing right under our little noses. The only thing I take away when this happens is a feeling of immediacy.
We are too late
They know we are too late
whatever will happen is unstoppable from their perspective.
So hold on to your seat, the ride gets bumpy from here.

That is how I see it. They know what is about to go down and they know we will be a trifle upset and they know we will be armed and they know we will be looking for them. So they play 'we are little cute flowers, all in a bunch.'
