BBD – Quickie Plus Buy Echopraxia

Regarding some portion of this:

October 17th, 2014 at 8:29 pm:

Within days:

Car 1: battery dead, overheating and an as yet unknown third problem.

Car 2: Something burning under hood.

Car 3, “rescue car for Car 2”: flat tire.



The least you can do for Canadian sci-fi writer Peter Watts, beaten and pepper-sprayed at the border by US C&BP and then convicted for the “privilege” is to buy his new book, Echopraxia and rescue him from CanLit.

Echopraxia is a remarkable hard sci-fi work with tons of action, thought-provoking debates, and a mix of science and poetry for which there may be no equal. Plus zombies, vampires, aliens, and transhumans all done with care for plausibility. So buy it.

Don’t make me start a rumor that it contains secret messages to the Rebellion in order to get the DoD, FBI, and DHS to buy it!

Once you have accomplished that mission, go read the others. For free!

Do it.



Zombies, Ranchers, and the Historical Improbable in Plain Sight

Let’s start with another article on the US government’s obsession with zombies.

Giorgio is No Pal of Mine

Independent UK, “Untrue statements’ anger over work to make H5N1 bird-flu virus MORE dangerous to humans: Coalition of leading scientists claim ferret experiments could lead to a pandemic,” Steve Connor, 20 December 2013:

There’s a lot of use of double negatives in the article. This is largely, I think, to avoid stating the truth or, should some editors IMO still be in denial as to the state of world affairs, not to falsely accuse the European Society of Virology and its president Giorgio Pal of outright lying.

Let me simplify it. H5N1 is a very deadly flu virus but with a very poor transmission rate. What these people are doing is purposely running it through multiple generations so that they can get a version that is easily transmitted to humans. In other words, a virus capable of killing hundreds of millions, maybe more. They’re making a bioweapon.

I’ll just insert some memes here. Population reduction. NATO. Europe. GLADIO.

Why do this? Good question. After all, “they” aren’t going to be immune themselves, right? The world’s elite could die of it as well.

Let’s take a closer look at a few things that have transpired since 9/11. Let’s start with the grounding of all planes. The “monkey to the airport” scenario isn’t much good if the plane isn’t allowed to land, is it? Didn’t take long to make happen either (well, except for those planes destined for Saudi Arabia, see below).

But what about all those borders? You can’t be serious.

Oh, can’t I? This has been the one thing, the Customs and Border Protection escalation, that seems to have been agreed upon by people of all stripes with perhaps the exception of some libertarians. Even the Tea Party has pretty much always been up in arms about the “took’r’jobs” situation and the drug cartel problems. The former typically involves jobs the average American doesn’t want to do and is actually a symptom of the highest productivity in history; if 60 people do the work of 100, that still works if you deport half and 30 do the work of 50. The latter of course involves the Central Intelligence Agency running contrary to the function of the DEA in order to fund domestic and foreign operations. But the dual function of keeping flu infected “zombies” out, well DoD and CIA dominated Hollywood have prepared us all for that eventuality, and thank you Homeland Security for keeping out all those sick people, just as Jesus taught us.

The last thing, of course, you can bet that there will be excellent health care to deal with any outbreaks in country.

For the 1%. The rest of you will have drones, detention centers, and–why not?–flamethrower squadrons to make sure it doesn’t spread. Though that last will likely only happen until we have napalm-carrying drones.

Incredible time to be alive isn’t it? Front row seats, no longer any reason to need CNN to bring you images of the destruction you financed and backed all these years because it felt so damn good being so important that a group of Saudi Arabia and CIA backed radicals attacked some buildings in a city most of the Red States never gave a damn about anyway. Now you’ll get to see it in 3D, up close. With surround sound. You’ll even feel the heat. For a short while anyway.

Congratulations. You are at least important enough to be mass murdered by your own corporate-controlled government in order for them to save their own sorry asses and to keep them in the life style in which they have become accustomed.

Subliminal Communication Technology Part 4

Before I get back to Becker, etc., I had a few more thoughts about ‘Harold’, murderer of Ronni Chasen. (Most of the rest from Becker is the politics, PR, and responses to media reports anyway, as you’ll see below).

Another notable thing about him is that he seemed to be determined not to go back to prison. This was what resulted in a shootout with police that ended with him dead. Could that also have been the result of subliminal affirmations or veridicals?

Additionally, investigators tried to say her death was drug-related. There was an outcry by people who knew her stating that she would not have any such connections.

The idea of killing the assassins after the deed is done is a very old one. It’s in Shakespeare’s Macbeth but I don’t recall/know if it was in his source material, Holinshed’s Chronicles. This is also in his Richard III, I think, and the same question stands. And there’s the darkly humorous chain that Heath Ledger as the Joker uses in The Dark Knight to rob the bank and steal the mob’s money. It’s a common enough meme in fiction.

There was also, of course, the Lee Harvey Oswald/Jack Ruby chain of events, though the truth behind that portion of the JFK assassination, like so many others, is in dispute. I do note, however, that much of the early research in the area of hypnosis happened in the 1950s, years before that fateful day in Dallas.

In any case, this resolve to avoid jail prevented Harold being interviewed by police after the fact. Further, shooting someone like Chasen, unknown to most moviegoers but well known in industry circles, would tend to send a message without the additional scrutiny that shooting someone more famous would bring.

As I’ve noted previously, control of Hollywood and overcoming the prevailing attitude there against war would seem to be the goal. Truthout and others also reported that DoD gave many financial incentives to make pro-war propaganda films and gained line veto power over the script as a result. The relationship between Hollywood and DC, especially the CIA and DoD is a long one and well documented.

On yet another topic, because the blog operatioN|Manning reblogged part 2 of this series on Congress’ study of subliminals, I am linking to the older stuff, from January of 2012, that I was referring to in part 2:

More on Bradley Manning’s Treatment

I will also restate that I sent money to Wikileaks in January or February of 2010 without really knowing why. The harassment and effects of whatever drugs I’d been slipped leave some moments from that period rather hazy. Wikileaks seemed to be about exposing corruption and having previously contacted the authorities and found not only no relief but a worsening of my treatment, it seemed like a way to strike back. Of course the whole thing was actually done via subliminals and playing around with my Google search results. This occurred before Manning’s arrest and I’d never heard of him nor Julian Assange at that time. (Believe me, the authorities know it was something like I describe. Similar events have happened before and since and they know I have no links to the organizations involved).

Which again brings to mind the documents in Manning’s case that indicated he was under psychiatric care in the run up to the alleged leaks. It sounds very, very similar to what I and people experiencing Organized Stalking have described. That is, it sounds like he may have been drugged.

Back to the Congressional report. Becker provides a letter he sent in ’81 to Senator Tsongas. In it, he describes his list of references to media stories as minimal examples of pro and con. He also notes that some are in his opinion irresponsible and inflammatory. His three primary examples of this are articles from the Wall Street Journal (“Words Whispered to Subconscious Supposedly Deter Thefts, Fainting”, 11/25/80, Neil Maxwell), the Boston Globe (“This Mama Will Faint If She Wants To”, 12/14/80, Susan Trausch), and the Christian Science Monitor/The Leader (“Subliminal Warrants Caution”, 2/5/81, Robert C. Cowen).

Becker then describes how the publicity leading to public concerns started in April 1978 when Becker and Norma Glanzer presented a paper at a conference in Atlanta. The paper concerned things like weight loss and “honesty reinforcement, theft determent, and loss prevention in industrial and commercial settings.” The AP picked up on the story and referred to it as “Dr. Becker’s Electronic Conscience” and later his “little black box.”

He goes on to describe how these devices were at times not endorsed by politicians, but how he was asked to speak at seminars that, for example, the Louisiana attorney general was conducting.

As I’ve stated before, rather than increasing violence, terrorism, and affecting domestic policy via covert operations, they could be using this stuff to prevent crime and terrorism.

Unfortunately, like eating less food, there is no obvious and immediate financial motive for doing so. Security, intelligence and defense industry companies make money from ongoing problems, not permanent solutions. Regardless of what you think about the practice of subliminals for honesty, nonviolence, etc., the fact that the opposite is happening indicates that the safety, security, and pursuit of happiness of the average American is not at the top of the to-do list. The appearance that it is is largely due to the influence over entertainment, news, and control of the narrative.

Becker goes on to describe how progress is being made to rehabilitate young criminals, how he is often contacted by desperate parents, how funding is an issue but he is hopeful.

Then he complains that Barbara Stack, the ACLU’s NY legislative director, told the WSJ, “The potential for abuse is enormous…If it is a distortion of sound and camouflaged so the receiver isn’t aware and can influence his behavior, it’s tantamount to brainwashing and ought to be prohibited by legislation.”

Becker says that the WSJ did not afford him the option of responding in the same article. Trausch in the Globe article treads closely to character defamation, he says.

He says that the articles and others like them are irresponsible because they recommend legislation against crime prevention and therefore against the public interest.

Then he says he would not be averse to reasonable legislation and offers to help write it by serving on a commission.

But that’s mostly beside the point here. The point is that the ACLU said that there was the potential for abuse and Becker responsed with “How is ‘I am honest’ as a message a bad thing?” It is that this kind of thing clearly is being abused now that concerns me. How could Becker have ever thought to control the technology? He is correct, I think, to point out that any new technology or advance is always met with resistance. He adds the automobile to the previously mentioned aspirin argument and even suggests safe driving subliminal service announcements.

Ironically, he quotes Eric Lander (“In Through the Out Door”, OMNI, February 1981), “Unfortunately for the movie’s creators, turning the population into zombies by subliminal subterfuge is the only thing scientists unanimously agree is out of the question.”

Depending on your definition of zombie, it not only seems possible but perhaps to an extent what is happening. The Corbett Report in the first clip I watched said that that was exactly how we as a nation behave. False-flag operations during some post-Arab Spring events in the Middle East were completely ignored by the MSM. All kinds of indicators exist that something is very wrong but we ignore it or focus on B.S. like rumors of fake birth certificates and other disinformation spread by special business interests.

Then there is the definition I’ve used half-jokingly about being a slave, working for one or more government agencies without ever realizing it (and because I like people to remember, it was as a patsy, not an actual operative).

And then there were the actual cases, close to each other timewise, where people actually ate the flesh of other human beings. Generally, this was blamed on pot and so-called bath salts. It didn’t occur to me that subliminals might have been involved and I assumed a one-size fits all engineered drug or pathogen. More likely drugs and instructions in tandem with PSYOPs like.most of these other events based around the psychology of the targets.

Back to Becker, he also talks about invasion of privacy as argument against the use of subliminals. He agrees that it is but that the benefits outweigh the intrusions.

There are only a few of the actual enclosures that Becker sent the subcommittee, most notably a brochure and a positive article.

Up next, David Tyler of Proactive Systems speaks to the subcommittee.

Disappearances in Magic Valley

This story (mobile version). Dogs disappearing in mysteriously Magic Valley, Idaho, police puzzled.

Likely not really much to do with the purpose of this blog, but something to blog about tonight.

Several interesting possible scenario variants and way too early to pin down since we don’t yet have much to go on but here goes anyway. (And even if it does turn out as weird or weirder than the possibilities I’m playing with below, I just don’t have room in Infernis to incorporate it!).

One or two young men, probably between the ages of 17 and 26. They may be acting out part of the plotline from 30 Days of Night (the film, the comic is several stories I understand, don’t think I’ve read them or if so not much).

In the film, a boatload of vampires descend on a town. First they send a forward team to remove the dogs and cell phones. If cell phones start disappearing (or already have) then you may have just that.

A (not so) funny story regarding the so-called “Vampire clan” (this story here, you may have seen this ringleader in some specials on those various true crime channels and maybe I think HBO).

When those guys passed through Kentucky, the stopped in Murray (where I went to college and close to where I attended high school), where one or more of them were from. There, they broke into the local dog pound and murdered several puppies by cutting off their feet. This was of course in preparation for the murders they later committed in Florida.

Anyway, the (not so) funny part, how I know about that, my ex-partner and his friends were initially blamed by the local police for the break-in and dog mutilations because they were goth-y. You know, wore black, painted fingernails, etc. though they really were more punk when it came to musical tastes and my ex tended to die his hair back then various bright colors. Once Murray PD got word about the murders in Florida they knew they had the wrong people.

It occurs to me that the entire vampire murder mess may have been related to NK/Intra. Why not? I’ve “stumbled” into so many unbelievable situations * , why not one more?

And so, there is also the possibility of an upcoming Pont-St.-Esprit-like event in Magic Valley, Idaho. Why not?

The goal is in part to create an old timey, fire-and-brimstone revival in order to get a majority of Americans to go along with the draconian measures that NATO has coming down the pike. What better place to stage a “mysterious” event than a place called Magic Valley? Dogs disappear, weird stuff happens. If you’re having a problem understanding just how superstitious your fellow American is, and how most “educational channels” cater to this now, you either need to get out more, or less.

Yet another variant, the dogs are “joining” coyote packs (like Canis Doofus seemed to do). I use the quotes because it is my belief that they likely mate with dogs and then turn on and eat them. Coyotes being practically everywhere in N’Am, not impossible.

The point is, who knows? And why should they with all this secrecy? No question that the program is active, merely when and where it’s actually being used.

By the way, off-topic (sorta) but in case I haven’t said it on this blog before, isn’t it strange that so many violent shootings occurred at Virginia Tech? I mean, what else is in Virginia that might explain…

Oh. Right.

But they never told you the price it would pay,
The things that you might have done.

* Working (indirectly) for Bain Capital / Romney, working (indirectly) for Koch, working for OFA (actually my choice for once…I think), noticing a pair of suspicious characters near Gracey Mansion just following 9/11, Squidgate, and of course the many, many other bizarre things I have documented here.

Spooks vs. Zombies

HuffPo – Large Federal Zombie Apocalypse Exercise Scheduled

The keynote speaker beforehand will be a retired top spook – former CIA Director Michael Hayden.

I tell ya, I can’t keep up. Like The Wisp, Infernis is going to become more and more dramatic re-enactment / documentary / history before I get the damn thing finished.

False-flag zombies…well, that’ll be one way to shorten the lines at the gas station, get good seats at the movies, and to cut down on the Social Security budget while simultaneously increasing the military one.

(Some may have forgotten the flesh-eating stories of last year and the, apparently false, claim that synthetic drugs generically called “bath salts” were to blame).

BLACK BOOT DIARIES – Weather, Earthquakes, and Chemtrails

From the CIA Guerilla Warfare Manual:

Guerilla warfare is essentially a political war. For this reason, its area of operations goes beyond the limits of conventional warfare, penetrating the political being “par excellence” itself: the “political animal” defined by Aristoteles.

In effect, the human being must be considered as the the priority objective in a political war. And viewed as the military target of guerilla warfare, the most critical point of the human being is the mind. Once the mind has been reached, the “political animal” has been vanquished, without necessarily having received any shots.

Guerilla warfare emerges and grows in a political environment; in the constant struggle to dominate that area of the political mentality which is inherent in every human being, and which collectively constitutes the “environment” in which guerilla warfare moves, and which is precisely the arena in which its triumph or defeat is defined.

This concept of guerilla warfare as a political war turns Psychological Operations into the factor that determines the results. The target, then, are the minds of the population, the entire population: Our troops, the enemy troops, and the civil population.

I’m going to back up a bit and re-cover some ground already covered on this blog albeit a while back.

First, the weather. As you’ll see, there is, much like the USAF document from the 90s describing the usage of electronics to control people, etc. a similar more recent document about controlling the weather by 2025. We have to acknowledge that that is not that far off.

At least twice, maybe three times, I had some very odd experiences in Minneapolis where weather is concerned. Starting with the smallest which I think was also the first chronologically, my “favorite” tree near the Stone Arch Bridge was struck by lightning and destroyed. I’ll cover what I think happened later.

Next, twice (I suppose because I didn’t react the first time) I was out walking and shopping and got caught in what was tornado weather. One moment the sky is clear and a few minutes later, whammo, I’m seeking refuge under a roof overhang. (Actually that’s what happened the second time. The first time I just literally pretended there was no rain, got extremely soaked, etc.)

Next, as I noted somewhere on this blog, there was a Saturday where I was crossing a walking overpass over the interstate and I heard via voice-to-skull, a Midwestern sounding voice, “I wish there’d be an earthquake right now.” The next day, there was one in Virginia.

After the first tornado weather experience, I practically had to consider the possibility of weather control. It was just too strange, the odds of clear skies to torrential rainfall along with all the other harassment was just too much to ignore (not to mention I undoubtedly had the usual projection of thoughts into my head to get me to buy off on what was most likely disinformation).

But then I recalled the card trick. The one where the magician need only know the location and face of one card but he can make it seem like he knows many or all of them. It’s the trick of making the order of events (in the card trick’s case, the order of the cards pulled) seem other than they are.

So, let’s apply that first to the lightning destroying the tree. There are a couple of ways. This tree was not the wishing tree I mentioned before. So why was it my “favorite”? Don’t know. I suppose that was a planted idea as well. The other option, as I linked to at some point, there is a way to direct lightning using lasers. One imagines that lightning effects (I did not see it happen, after all) could be faked anyway.

Next, caught in bad weather. The first time was just as I recall, by semi-weekly jog and workout. I developed a pattern, and it was perhaps bound to happen sooner or later. That a psyops team may have taken advantage of that should come as no surprise. One day I should compile some of the really stupid ineffective things they tried. Usually they fall under the heading of, as Romeo says, “scars that never felt a wound.” That is, things that were clearly designed to upset me but that held no real psychological impact. That is the way most of these things are at this point.

The second time I’m fairly certain was in order to catch me out in it. In fact, I am certain. I was walking quite a distance to a store I go to periodically and on the way, when the clouds started gathering, V2K said to buy it at a closer one I preferred not to shop at. When I stepped outside, there was a deluge and hail. This is when a piece of roof fell about two or three feet from where I was standing but as I pulled my camera out to take a picture, an employee of the store ran out and grabbed the piece of metal and took it inside. The timing of all of that reeks of brainhacking, much at the visit in the Brooklyn deli in January of 2010 did.

So, the weather was to be the weather regardless. That I happened to be out of something and decided to go buy it is again most likely the suggestion of ideas electronically.

Next the earthquake. I am of course torn about this. The bizarre situation where Senator Paul Wellstone claims Cheney threatened him, combined with Cheney’s close friends in the DoD, combined with neoconservative disregard for human rights, combined with obvious desire to develop earthquake weapons all points to there being a real possibility of a sonic earthquake weapon in the US arsenal. However, that particular event on the walkway over the interstate may have another explanation.

There were something like 300 tiny tremors leading up to that earthquake in Virginia and they started at least the day before. It would not have been impossible to predict a bigger one coming and, after all, I was not given an exact time and date for one via V2K. In fact, maybe they expected it at any time and the fact that it happened the next day was actually not a stellar result. I could not resist the temptation * to play it off as God’s revenge on Langley at the time. (And flipping it around again, might the whole thing have been some kind of test? The Scandinavians found that resulting tremors from attempting to use underground volcanic activity to generate steam for energy were ten times the magnitude expected from models. Enter quantum physics to try to explain it. Was some lab in Virginia playing with something like that?).

So, disinformation again (probably). Just the desire to see just what it takes to make a rational person cling to the irrational, as they succeeded in doing in 1989 and 1990 when I had not other good explanations.

Note again: lightning and earthquakes. This post also earns the Fauxpocalypse tag. So much of this, as Eleanor White recently observed, would seem to support faking many, many supernatural phenomena. ESP and prophecy/synthetic telepathy, stigmata/Morgellons, voices and visions/V2K & SONY, lycanthropy/hypnotism, vampirism/acute anemia, telekinesis/EMF, disease/phony symptoms, natural disaster, demonic possession/V2K, ghosts/SONY, zombiism/drugs, etc. It’s just too much not to wonder of the desire isn’t to scare most everyone into being religious. I’m also convinced that many of the so-called perps are in fact other TIs who think that the TIs they are harassing are themselves perps. Playing everyone off against everyone else, this reeks of some idiot’s anti-Christ scenario. Is there really someone this f***ing stupid as to think they could pull that off? Yikes, this completely ruins that whole idea that money and smarts go together. I’ll have to agree with Ben Stein in that it is more about fortitude than being clever where wealth accumulation is concerned.

Moving on. This is another one I’ve avoided for what will be obvious reasons. It’s one of those where, stepping outside myself, I would find easier to believe was the result of insanity rather than electronic hypnotic suggestion. I had of course heard the stories about people claiming that the CIA put chips in their heads. I tended not to believe it, largely because they would never let such a person loose to talk about it if they had done so. Would they love to do that? Of course, these are fascist psychos we are talking about.

So I did not believe it. I even recall one story where a man making such a claim had an x-ray and they did see something in there. However, one would expect, even with the electronic brainhacking to the point it is, a bit more news coverage on that if it were true.

I think it was Summer ’10, I was laying on my bed at my first apartment in Minneapolis. I had I think been reading Twitter and, I think it was someone from Boing Boing, said something about making people change their minds with the “flip of a switch”. I think it was hours after reading that that I “felt” (and how does one feel such a thing if it were true?) a switch flipping in the left side of my heed. Bizarre. I chalk that up to the same hypnotic suggestion that made me “feel” a gun to my head and it going off at the New Jersey Shakespeare Festival twenty-one years prior. (The lame excuse as to when and how they got this “switch” into my head: during a sleep study in 2005 or so, which by the way was in or near a building I’m reasonably certain an external shot of which was used toward the end of the third Bourne picture. Note that convincing TIs that fictional accounts are about them is a frequent form of covert harassment.)

So, hypnosis and disinformation.

And at last I arrive at the point. Chemtrails. The alleged release of toxins and / or biological agents on the American and Canadian people via air planes (apparently only the high-flying ones because that is where the condensation occurs that causes contrails). I have to lean toward disinformation. I think the dissemination of things like Morgellons (this is one of the theories) is probably more tightly controlled than dropping it everywhere. One interesting theory is that they are dropping metal particles which, once they enter the body, make EMF harassment more effective. Kind of a neat idea but it seems to work just fine and instilling hypochondria is another thing they like to do.

While again, I don’t underestimate the sick depravity of portions of the military industrial complex and its friends, it’s just that there are too many ways to confirm this being done too easily. I don’t believe in a massive government conspiracy and that’s what this would take, the cooperation of the EPA on top of everyone else involved. (Note how easy it was to debunk EPA’s intentionally bad report on the effects of workers at the WTC site. Heck, I knew it was crap when it came out, there was still asbestos in the buildings in inaccessible and unabated areas, not to mention mercury in all those eye-banging fluorescent light fixtures. It was a sad joke from the folks who brought you “compassionate conservatism” which, until proven otherwise, I take as a contradiction in terms. Their excuse: to avoid panic and lawsuits, the latter of which we have because so many have fallen ill).

Seen mind control in action. Had it done to me. This is where Occam’s razor comes in. We are not talking about a natural phenomenon which means it does not–from my perspective–apply in the usual way. What I mean is, it’s easier to believe I’m nuts than that I experienced any of this except there is the occasional witness, the infrequent piece of evidence, and the knowing of things I could not have known without V2K telling me. Therefore, from my perspective, I say there is intentional human involvement. Once we agree that there is intentional human involvement, we can throw “what’s simpler” out the window–sort of! Humans have the ability to make things complicated. But, to accomplish a magic trick, why go with insanely elaborate when you can do it simpler with drugs, electronics and hypnotic suggestion? That is how I see Occam’s being useful when a human desire to deceive is concerned: what was the easiest way to do this “trick”?

The Chemtrails to me are the license plate triggers of the sky. Would some sickos love to dump crap on us to see what it does? Of course. Are they? I don’t think so, but then I don’t have that experience that many who believe it true. And population reduction as motive would not surprise me as there are so many things (Islamophobia, homophobia, distrust of education and the educated, etc.) pointing that direction.

If there are traces of metals after a flyover, well, it is a large, exceedingly fast moving, vibrating object. Metal dust is bound to be left behind as are whatever the by-products of the expending of jet fuel are (DoD is the world’s largest polluter. That alone, intentionally or not, means some folks are going to starve, become ill and/or die as a result of it).

I do also note that, combining the drones which are coming to North America, and the chemtrail idea, fits into some hefty disease outbreak control that Peter Watts covers in the second and third books of the Rifters trilogy. Botflies used to wipe out entire communities before an outbreak can spread, well how far behind being willing to shoot down a plane that has been hijacked is that? How many people would bat an eye over wiping out a building to save a city, a city to save a state, a state to save a nation? This is the logic for the whole damn thing. Selfishness. Rather than heal the sick, just immolate them. Rather than feed the poor, just starve them and make sure that they have no legal recourse whatever and then when they rebel, arrest them, lock them up in NDAA camps, and torture them for false information in order to repeat the process more easily.

The interesting dichotomy about brainhacking is that, it seems to me, the people most likely to be able to resist it are sociopaths. ** There are two primary reasons. First, they are likely to step back and look at the suggested behavior and ask themselves what the likely outcome is. They are less likely to want to let their passions wind them up dead or in prison is the bottom line. The flipside, they are also less likely to care about harming others if that is the suggested course of action via voice-to-skull, etc. Stepping into relevant fiction for a moment (Casino Royale), I swear, if Vesper hadn’t died leaving Bond an empty shell from circumstances, M would have arranged it.

Mind control: it’s gotta go.

* It’s the only thing I can’t resist. Well that and sometimes mind control, but neither can you.

** Though I stumbled upon a recent article that is rethinking that and saying that emotionally disturbed is more apt than emotionally devoid. I don’t know what to think about that.
