Once upon a time I was an administrative assistant. I had a lovely but albeit strange boss. I won’t say his name of course to protect him but I will say what he told me once…
“Obama takes mind control pills…it’s like a candy”.
I was of course dumbfounded by this statement but I wanted to know more and when I asked for more of the juicy details I was told to “Google it”.
But of course when I Googled “it” there was no information about this mind control candy. Part of me was relieved and part of me was dissappointed that there was no information because I find these kind conspiracy theories just so brilliantly funny.
Instead of finding information about Obama being mind controlled, I found more about some rather creepy programs.
A project called MKULTRA, a CIA mind control program, started in the 1950s and, as you can imagine, the experiments conducted were a little – well totally illegal. Many forms of abuse including drugs, sexual and even tortue were used in attempts to control people’s minds.
Oh and don’t worry – this was supposedly stopped in the 70s. Coincidence that the hippie movement came about during this program? Hmm…I feel another conspiracy theory coming on.
Surprisingly people actually volunteered as test subjects for MKULTRA’s LSD, hypnosis and electrolysis experiments. Most surprising of all is that famous people put their hands up to well technically have no control over their hands…
Kenneth Elton Kesey, author of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest was one of the many famous volunteers of MKULTRA. Casey volunteered to take part in the psychedelic drugs (LSD and others) part of the program which supposedly lead to him advocating drugs outside of the program.
So what does this all have to do with Obama? Well he basically has come out with a new project, that depending on your political view, can be viewed as a way of researching mind control. ‘BRAIN Initiative’ is being partly run by DARPA and focusses on unlocking how the brain remembers, thinks and learns. Apparently the program is being developed to learn more about autism, epilepsy and more neuron related things.
Of course some people may view this as a way for Obama to literally change your views and political stance.
My verdict on this conspiracy? Uh well it’s kind of believable and creepy but let’s hope it’s for all the right reasons and not for well…mind control.
Til next time,
P.S tin foil hats are effective and cheap.
