MK Ultra America’s Mind Control Effort

“One pill makes you larger and one pill makes you small” Grace SlickLSD photo

The C.I.A is the cesspool of the American dream. Their list of atrocities are long and varied. They have overthrown progressive democratically elected leaders and replaced them with despots that were the scum of the Earth. They are the major importer of illegal drugs into the United States and to this day they flood the inner city with them. They operate black sites where they torture people for information. I could list many other things that I shouldn’t know. One nasty thing the C.I.A. also did was test LSD an unsuspecting people. It was done in a program called MK Ultra. LSD is a powerful hallucinogenic drug. I have ‘tripped’ several times taking psilocybin or ‘magic mushrooms’ or mescaline. It is quite possible that the mescaline I took might have been speed and acid or methamphetamine mixed with LSD.  The experience is a unique one that is very hard to capture in words. To put it mildly one’s mind is distorted to the point that they are almost experiencing a different and separate world. Of course I took the drugs for enjoyment or perhaps to escape the cruelty of this world. When one trips they tend to laugh a lot.

But what the C.I.A. was no joke. They would test LSD on unsuspecting people. Some unfortunate candidates were prisoners and soldiers. I have heard reports that the drug was used on runaways as well as men frequenting prostitutes. It is alleged that in New York City the prostitutes would pick up ‘John’s’ and take them to a bar. There the C.I.A. agents would observe through a two way mirror while they themselves got drunk. The prostitutes would slip LSD into the ‘John’s’ drinks. In return for their service the prostitutes were allowed to operate their illegal trade without interference from the police.

The whole goal of MK Ultra was mind control. This mind control had two aspects. The first was to break down people through interrogation. The frightening effects of LSD can under the right circumstances turn a man’s mind to mush. It was hoped that LSD could be used to extract vital information from unwilling subjects. Secondly LSD was hoped to be used to brainwash people and control them. Unlike the Manchurian Candidate who can only follow a simple scenario the promises of MK Ultra were to develop intelligent and willing candidates to do the CIA’s bidding.

It is believed that Charles Manson was in the MK Ultra Program. Certainly he had some experience with using LSD. He and his followers would take trips during which Manson would elevate himself to the status of ‘Jesus Christ’ in their eyes. Some of his followers in reflection believe that when the Manson Family took the LSD that Charlie either took a much lower dose of LSD or none at all. The results of Charles Manson were exactly what the LSD was looking for. Creative killers who would do their job with enthusiasm.

Also LSD was given out in certain rock and roll communities. Rock Stars tended to be liberal or radical in nature and would be against things such as war in general. In order to destroy any possible political movement LSD use was promoted.

Allegedly the MK Ultra Program has been terminated. Unfortunately I cannot trust the government’s word at this. If they were vile enough to create such an operation they are certainly vile enough to lie about the existence of the program.

MK Ultra is America at it’s worst right up there with injecting African Americans with Syphilis to observe how it spread.

I have a fictional story on this topic in this book.
