This broad­cast was record­ed in one, 60-minute seg­ment.

Intro­duc­tion: With recent dis­cus­sion of fas­cist mind con­trol cults in pro­gram­ming about Julian Assange, Japan (the Uni­fi­ca­tion Church) and Tul­si Gab­bard (key asso­ciate of Bernie Sanders and his Sanders Insti­tute), it may be use­ful to younger and new­er lis­ten­ers to review some of the infor­ma­tion from the AFA Archive Shows about mind con­trol (orig­i­nal­ly record­ed in 1983–1985.)

The first two pro­grams in the series review infor­ma­tion about ele­ments of U.S. intel­li­gence using var­i­ous psy­cho­log­i­cal techniques–some of them rel­a­tive­ly elementary–to cre­ate mind con­trol assas­sins. Mobi­liz­ing hyp­no­sis, psy­choac­tive drugs, clas­si­cal and oper­ant con­di­tion­ing and audio visu­al desen­si­ti­za­tion, often in com­bi­na­tion with one anoth­er, peo­ple were cre­at­ed who would do the bid­ding of their con­trol struc­ture, even when to do so would con­flict with their own val­ues and incli­na­tions.

Access­ing infor­ma­tion from Wal­ter Bowart’s Oper­a­tion Mind Con­trol, the pro­gram begins with exper­i­ments con­duct­ed by J.G. Watkins in the imme­di­ate after­math of World War II. It has often been stat­ed that hyp­no­sis can­not be used to moti­vate some­one to kill a per­son they oth­er­wise would not harm.

This con­tention over­looks the tech­nique of con­vinc­ing a sub­ject that the tar­get of their actions is some­one oth­er than who they actu­al­ly are.

Under hyp­no­sis, sol­diers were instruct­ed to kill supe­ri­or offi­cers and asso­ciates, who were sug­gest­ed to the hyp­no­tized sub­ject as being Japan­ese sol­diers. It should be not­ed that attack­ing a supe­ri­or offi­cer is a major offense in the mil­i­tary.

The hyp­no­tized sol­diers then pressed rapid attacks on the supe­ri­or offi­cers and/or col­leagues, despite the fact that this behav­ior was fun­da­men­tal­ly in con­flict with the val­ues to which the sub­jects adhered. The rel­e­vant point is that hyp­no­sis can be used to moti­vate some­one to kill a per­son who has been misiden­ti­fied under hyp­no­sis.

Pro­fes­sion­al couri­ers were also hyp­no­tized into divulging the con­tents of clan­des­tine com­mu­ni­ca­tions.

The pro­gram then sets forth the work of Navy offi­cer Thomas Narut, using audio-visu­al desen­si­ti­za­tion to help train assas­sins. After their behav­ior had been shaped by Narut, they were sta­tioned at U.S. embassies and oth­er facil­i­ties where their skills might be deemed nec­es­sary.

The pro­gram con­cludes with the sto­ry of Luis Angel Castil­lo, an appar­ent mind-con­trolled assas­sin who had mul­ti­ple per­son­al­i­ties pro­grammed into him. Key points of dis­cus­sion about Castil­lo include:

  1. A total of four dif­fer­ent “Zom­bie states,” each fea­tur­ing dif­fer­ent types of behav­ior to which Castil­lo had been con­di­tioned.
  2. Castil­lo’s posi­tion­ing to assas­si­nate Philip­pine pres­i­dent Fer­di­nand Mar­cos. (We won­der if this poten­tial attempt was con­nect­ed to Mar­cos’s reluc­tance to share the Gold­en Lily loot with the U.S? Might Castil­lo have been pro­grammed to elim­i­nate Mar­cos as an obsta­cle to using the mas­sive under­ground bul­lion and jew­el deposits? Might his pres­ence have been intend­ed as a warn­ing to Mar­cos that he had bet­ter coop­er­ate?
  3. Castil­lo’s pos­si­ble role in the assas­si­na­tion of Pres­i­dent Kennedy.
  4. Castil­lo’s pos­si­ble links to Allen Dulles.
  5. The pres­ence of a Ger­man woman–known to Castil­lo as Mrs. Kreps–who appears to have wield­ed much influ­ence over Castil­lo.
  6. Castil­lo’s con­di­tion­ing to com­mit sui­cide, if his activ­i­ties became known to oth­ers.

  1. I am very glad to see you are tak­ing the time to repost some of the ear­li­er AFA archives. I have spent the last few years aug­ment­ing the week­ly shows with the vast free audio archive and I often won­der if some of the new­er lis­ten­ers are sim­ply unaware of the hun­dreds of hours of polit­i­cal and his­tor­i­cal that are to be found on this site — so I applaud your efforts in this regard.

    As a young teenag­er I devoured the Bowart book and oth­ers like The Search for the Manchuri­an Can­di­date and The Mind Con­trol of Can­dy Jones and I am so glad I did as they pro­vide an essen­tial frame­work for under­stand­ing some of the more arcane areas of polit­i­cal research.

    The entire three shows on Mind Con­trol in the archives are an incred­i­ble crash-course in Mind Con­trol 101 and it real­ly makes one pause to think how the cur­rent tech­nolo­gies are been used in the ser­vice of the con­trollers, giv­en the par­a­dig­mat­ic shifts over the last fifty or so years.

    While You Tube and the var­i­ous ‘con­spir­a­cy’ forums are awash with cur­rent online nar­ra­tives by alleged ‘tar­get­ed indi­vid­u­als, (the ones that use MKUl­tra as almost a verb and inevitably refer to the spu­ri­ous and some­what innane Monarch and Mon­tauk projects) — sad­ly, very few have any his­tor­i­cal or con­cep­tu­al under­stand­ing of the books and arti­cles which under­score the three AFA archive shows on Mind Con­trol, so I do hope at least one or two of them come across these archive shows as they web­search.

    Final­ly, with the anniver­sary of Mae Brus­sel­l’s death com­ing up on Octo­ber 3rd, it is worth remem­ber­ing (as I am sure Dave does, giv­en his per­son­al and pro­fes­sion­al asso­ci­a­tions with her) that it was Mae who real­ly formed and pre­sent­ed one of the first coher­ent and in depth accounts of mind con­trol via her work on the nexus points between the JFK Assas­si­na­tion and the Under­ground Reich (obvi­ous­ly there were ear­li­er books like the valu­able six­ties book Were We Con­trolled?).

    The fact that she got so much heat on her at the time via peo­ple like the late Mark Lane (which in view of his lat­er legal and pro­mo­tion­al ser­vices to Jim Jones and Jon­estown is huge­ly iron­ic) made the lat­er mid sev­en­ties MKUl­tra rev­e­la­tions all the more vin­di­cat­ing of her work.

  2. @Paul Har­vey–

    Thanks for the kind words! The mind con­trol mate­r­i­al, the Jon­estown doc­u­men­ta­tion in par­tic­u­lar, is indeed pow­er­ful, as well as rel­e­vant.

    And this at the dis­tance of more than 30 years after the pro­grams were record­ed.

    It is sad that more peo­ple have not tak­en the bit in their teeth in this respect.

    Mae’s mind con­trol research also fig­ured into her analy­sis of the SLA.

    See the dis­cus­sion in AFA #23. https://spitfirelist.com/anti-fascist-archives/rfa-23-the-terror-connection-pt‑2/
