There has been a lot of talk recently about the images from the James Webb Telescope operated by NASA. What is surprisingly not mentioned quite as much is the background of James Webb. A Cold War era Psychological Warfare pioneer who mustered the infrastructure of institutions of higher learning for the military-industrial complex while waging a war domestically against gays in government as part of the “Lavender Scare.”
I would argue that programs like MK-Ultra and numerous other questionable forays into biological, psychological and other forms of warfare owes a great debt to Webb. Without the institutions that were already networked by Webb’s Project Troy then the weaponization of higher education wouldn’t have succeeded to the scale it did. And continues to.
