With respect to the promotion of psychedelic drugs, researcher and ethnomycologist Jan Irvin (GnosticMedia.com) has been researching the connections between Aldous Huxley, CIA MKUltra LSD mind control programs, and the counterculture movement, one of its key figures being R. Gordon Wasson.
The collection of related articles at GnosticMedia.com is entitled The Secret History of Magic Mushrooms. A recent article, Manufacturing the Deadhead: A product of social engineering (May 13, 2013) is co-authored by Joseph Atwill, the author of Caesar’s Messiah.
Also in this vein of research is a 2003 documentary film directed by Lutz Dammbeck called The Net: The Unabomber, LSD and the Internet. This film ties together CIA MKUltra, the hippy movement, the creation of the personal computer, the Internet, and the Esalen Institute in California, which has been a center for human potential and New Age teachings.
The current Wikipedia article about the Esalen Institute (accessed Oct. 11, 2013) refers to its connections with Aldous Huxley.
The Net, in the context of the story of the “Unabomber”, Ted Kaczynski, presents the pieces of a picture that appears to show the planned development of a global society networked together and under high-tech surveillance.
Researcher and broadcaster Alan Watt (CuttingThroughTheMatrix.com) has emphasized the importance of these projects in understanding the reason for major changes in culture and society.
On the subject of the creation of a controlled global society through deliberate policies of cultural change and mass migration, The Net includes very interesting statements and ideas from the Frankfurt School–a leading member was Theodor Adorno; and also from Kurt Lewin–a key Macy participant; and from Henry Murray a lead researcher in CIA MKUltra experiments at Harvard University.
Value for value. If you appreciate this post, please donate a small amount to encourage more research and commentary.
