The term “mind control” or “brainwashing” conjures up scifi visions of mind controlled assassins, people in zombie states and other outlandish ideas. Much of the interest in MK-Ultra tends toward the use of psychedelics, especially LSD. The cultural control through use of the Mockingbird network of CIA assets in mainstream media, literary and art journals and elsewhere is often overlooked as part of MK-Ultra mind control.
Another issue we mention are Sirhan Sirhan, John Mark Chapman and John Hinkley as well as Dr. Louis Jolyon “Jolly” West and how he shows up everywhere from Jack Ruby to Patty Hearst to Jonestown to McVeigh and beyond. Some of what’s covered here is based on some recently received documents from the UCLA library special collections on Dr. West.
We also briefly mention my book Pedogate Primer: the politics of pedophilia which makes mention of West and Elizabeth Loftus related to the False Memory Syndrome Foundation, who I interviewed. I mention some of the new materials I’ve gone through in the interview that are somewhat interesting in light of the Ghislaine Maxwell defense using the “false memories” defense via Dr. Elizabeth Loftus
Pedogate Primer is available in paperback from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Target and Powell’s Books and a few other shops worldwide including Australia, Taiwan and Poland. The audiobook, narrated by myself, is also for sale at Audible.com. If you’d like a review copy of the audiobook, contact me through the contact form or email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a promo code. I have a few other recent appearances I’ll be posting throughout the week as well as recording another interview next week.
