For those that do not know, Jim Keith was a very astute, well grounded researcher that wasn’t afraid to tackle issues most investigators wouldn’t cover.

Arguably Keith’s best work was his continuous coverage of what has been called Mind Control.  This is best exemplified in his book Mass Control: Engineering Human Consciousness.

This book not only covers the psychological and technological control that was looked into by the powers that be going back decades, but also how the CIA is coupled to this rather disturbing scenario.

Keith does an outstanding job of detailing the origins of this mechanism of social control, as well as being extremely precise in laying down the foundation of what places, such as the Tavistock Institute, were behind much of the push to implement this agenda in society.

As some of you may know, the Tavistock Institute is at the forefront of Social Engineering at a vast scale, and one of the best examples of this can be seen in the book Tavistock Institute – Social Engineering The Masses by Daniel Estulin.

The notable subjects that Keith begins in a wide & trenchant glance within this book, Estulin sinks his teeth into further in his own book.  Needless to say, the Tavistock institute is not the only major institution that has help fuel this nefarious Social Engineering agenda.

In any case, other quite notable aspects of societal control that Keith delves into include how society is being dumbing down, how ideology is often manipulated, how the subversion of sex is used, and how the erasing of the individual by molding them into a mindless robot is also being attempted.  But there’s more.

Veterans of these disciplines will know about official mind control programs such as Project Monarch, as well as the well-known Project MK Ultra, which is “sometimes referred to as the CIA’s mind control program, was the code name given to an illegal program of experiments on human subjects, designed and undertaking by the United States Central Intelligence Agency [CIA].”[1]

As the author details, not only do these programs have a streak of cult practice in them, but they also feature a extreme abuses with the use of drugs, as well as psychological abuses as individuals were made in every which way to bend to the will of the comptrollers running the programs.

What’s worse, is that the concealment of this abuse took place for a really long time, with many subjects unknowing of what took place due to the psychological programming that took place during the experiments.   This is accomplished by erecting “pseudo-scholarly fronts to disprove that such misdeeds exist.  Once such group is the False Memory Syndrome Foundation, a group of psychiatrists whose mission is to prove that cult abuse and mind control are figments of the imagination.”[2]

Its extremely disturbing that we live in a society that can not only carry out such experiments, but after being caught red handed continues its attempt to sweep its misdeeds under the rug.  Then again, those running the show [besides still being in power] have no respect for humanity, so its par for the course really.

All of the above, and much more is sifted through quite in depth by Jim Keith in this book.  This alone is a great starting point for those looking into the subject of mind control, but could also buttress research already known if the reader is already quite savvy in the subject.

Regardless, its a topic that affects us today, because as many investigators/researchers have detailed, its being used against people to mold our very minds.

To sum up this work, it is best to leave you with this nigh century old Orwellian quote by Edward Bernays, author of Propaganda:

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. …In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”

Book Review: Progaganda, By Edward Bernays

“Bernay’s honest and practical manual provides much insight into some of the most powerful and influential institutions of contemporary industrial state capitalist democracies.”
– Noam Chomsky

“Propaganda is the executive arm of the invisible government.”
– Edward Bernays

Propaganda is a tool widely used by those holding positions in many facets of society, from politicians, religious leaders, agents of the state to corporate brass.

Edward Bernays, whose magnum opus is Propaganda, is considered “the father of public relations. This particular book outlines in profound detail many aspects of how propaganda works. This book was originally published in 1928, and yet its effects can be still felt today.

This particular piece of work is dynamic because this book details how the mass manipulation of the human subconscious can place can take at unprecedented scale.

In a world where the propaganda vice-grip has reached unfathomable levels, knowledge of the form in which this takes place is not only imperative, but an individual responsibility.

Although glossed over by many, propaganda in its many forms – news, tv shows, songs, radio stations, advertisements, magazines, and more – has become an undeniable part of our societal structure.

Webbing the populace at will, this tool, and all its functions, have served to greatly increase the influence/power of most individuals and institutions spreading it.

As VigilantCitizen eloquently states:

“Bernay’s trailblazing marketing campaigns profoundly changed the functioning of American society. He basically created “consumerism” by creating a culture wherein Americans bought for pleasure instead of buying for survival. For this reason, he was considered by Life Magazine to be in the Top 100 most influential Americans of the 20th century.”1

Propaganda, in it of itself, is not negative per se. However, if lies are embedded within the messages being shared, then this tool can have very nefarious and wide reaching consequences for entire populations.

The book’s strength lays in showcasing the methods being studied by Bernays nigh a century ago, and how those methods were or might be employed.

Simply stated, if one wishes to understand how the rulers of our time operate and how they use and extend part of their power, then Propaganda is for you.

Personally, this book should be mandatory for anyone’s education. Only by knowing what you face and how it is employed can one learn how to overcome it.

To sum up this work, it is best to leave you with this Orwellian quote by Bernays:

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.
