Bad faith cover up of US/UK mind control but with some interesting details.
on 1 April 2017
This is the Establishment story of UK/US mind control and is a cover up. Very readable and has occasional variation in terms of how open it is about small elements of mind control, but a bad faith book. The positive comments about Drs Cameron and Sargant, as if they were genuinely focused on the welfare of their patients, yet using tragically dated treatments, are absurd. Compared with Karen Wetmore in 'Surviving Evil' where she quotes the CIA as admitting that Gittingers PAS was unethical and about exploiting people, the bland terms Streatfeild uses about Gittingers PAS are a giveaway. Wetmores book shows the sinister intent of Gittingers weakness database in astonishingly blunt words. Other cover ups here are of modern mind control victims 'Targeted Individuals' and the massive exploitation industry that surrounds them, making Streatfeilds apparent concern for people who could in practice be TIs absurd. Does have a lot of background and will suit people in for a good read, (as it has parts on heavy metal albums and cults) but this tries to put the word 'brainwash' in a time capsule and leave it as a Korean War dead end curio, hoping that people will similarly associate mind control with such a time capsule. Obviously, technical specifications of what is and isn't specifically 'brainwashing' can be used to bamboozle the casual reader into wrongly believing mind control is in the past. It isn't. It is in the present and its cover up is a huge non-reported story. Bizarrely, to justify cover up books like this, they regularly, (as here) have to posit 'nothing to see in the US' and simultaneous 'nothing to see in the UK', (such as brainwashing and 'FMS/SRA' controversies) at the same time, which is suspicious when multiplied enough times. Another suspicious portrayal is half-heartedly implying nothing to see in UK/Canada/Australia experiments at the same time these were linked to Sargant.
This book mentions US/UK military/intelligence branches involved, including CIA/USAF/SIS/SS/BA/RAF but doesn't mention NSA/GCHQ/RN. For a book referencing the Cold War, it misses out Lida/Moscow Signal/Pandora. It mentions some nasty interrogation techniques and at the end says if only there was another way. I think this relates to current mind control, which is plausibly deniable. In keeping secret current mind control, mind-reading and interrogation technology and know-how, this book helps keep a lid on the public analyzing whether the alleged terror attacks in the West, (foiled and successful) in the last couple of decades happened as the MSM portrayed them, especially where the alleged culprits had been allegedly already known to the intelligence agencies as 'extremists'.
This book therefore strongly implies that when ordinary people talk of mind control it can only be from wrong conspiracy theories with some mass hysteria to blame, which is codswallop. The writing on 'subliminals' is a clear feint against state mind control use of subliminals, such as NLP on the BBC scheduling. The picture on the cover is misleading about the technology involved. Interrogation can be done by remote by Electronic Warfare technology and implants.
