Missing Data, Logical Fallacies, And Psych Coverups

The document I link below is a great example of either well-meaning, and yet not entirely correct, analysis; or a downright misleading response. In and of itself, it might seem innocuous. If you look a bit closer, you might see a problem with regards to the diagnosis of what is and what is not “delusional.” After all, what better way to hide criminality than to say the person reporting it is delusional? *

The authors mention MKULTRA being invoked, but fail to mention the MKULTRA included several subprojects studying various mental disorders and that there hasn’t really been any suggestion as to why apart from the obvious reasons I detail below, ie, to mimic mental illness in order to harass, discredit, and ultimately character “assassinate” a target.

Similarly, they invoke similarities between 17th century “mind control” but fail to note the the Central Intelligence Agency is just as capable of reading history as the researchers are. This is again one of those situations where the perceived order of events is jumbled to create one picture when another is possible {see, from the Snowden docs, Gambits for Deception, “Time-shift Perceived Behaviour”}. That is, they point to similarities between pre-CIA mental disorders suggesting the phenomenon is connected to the former but fail to acknowledge CIA is aware of this and capable of using it to hide their involvement.

They also fail to mention one of the main stated goals was to mimic other ailments including the symptoms of them. So why not mimic demonic possession while you’re at it? And one should note that LSD sprang from the supposed origin behind werewolf legends: Ergot.

It’s all right there in the CIA memo included in the Senate report on MKULTRA, see items 1 and 5:

1. Substances which will promote illogical thinking and impulsiveness to the point where the recipient would be discredited in public.

2. Substances which increase the efficiency of mentation and perception.

3. Materials which will prevent or counteract the intoxicating effect of alcohol.

4. Materials which will promote the intoxicating effect of alcohol.

5. Materials which will produce the signs and symptoms of recognized diseases in a reversible way so that they may be used for malingering, etc.

You don’t even have to delve into the American Psychology Association’s strong connections to both MKULTRA and the post-9/11 torture scandal. But I’ll mention it anyway.

But the interesting part of the paper is how they are suggesting that simply because a culture or subculture believes a certain thing does not mean–as it has been historically!–that the belief should not be considered “delusional.” In other words, authority, perhaps corporate mainstream news, should decide what is and what is not delusional without regards to who otherwise does and does not believe it.

It is of course in the current climate difficult to defend many, but not all, non-mainstream beliefs. The phrase “fake news” invokes all sorts of interesting responses for example.

Then there’s been concerted attempts at, for example, painting Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein supporters as either Russian PSYOP dupes or sympathizers, mentally ill, or some combination of the above.

Now read the footnote. ;}

* Turns out that practice may actually have a long–read: over a century–history of being practiced in rich families where some unscrupulous family members didn’t like what was written in the will. We can all imagine their lawyers challenging the sanity of the dying patron or matron, but the “ghostlighting” portion employed to use it may have lead to the strict-ish adherence of judges sticking to the “sound mind at the time the will was signed” decision.

Seems there was a lot of people seemingly “going crazy” after signing wills that became disputed even late 19th century. Haven’t explored/researched this enough to speak to specifics yet, but thought it interesting to note what should be unsurprising: There’s a point where greed and subterfuge meet in the real world and all the fluff, pop culture and big corporate news crap cannot hide that fact.

Maybe this time “the will” is the Constitution.
