If you have followed Dave McGowan's Laurel Canyon series, or know anything about the MKULTRA program you would by now have the definite impression that cults are linked to mind control experimentation, very likely funded by governments.
Think Jim Jones. His little experiment in the jungle had, in my opinion, all the hallmarks of some governmental operation. Covert. Black-op. Call it what you will?
Greg @ Goon Squad had an interesting post up about Julian Assange of wikileaks fame and his early cult days. "Village of the Damned," meet Julian Assange
(read it all at link )
Anne Hamilton-Byrne acquired fourteen infants and young children between about 1968 and 1975.(Assange was born in 1971) Some were the natural children of Santiniketan members, others had been obtained through irregular adoptions arranged by lawyers, doctors and social workers within the group who could bypass the normal processes.
The children were frequently dosed with the psychiatric drugs Anatensol, Diazepam, Haloperidol, Largactil, Mogadon, Serepax, Stelazine, Tegretol or Tofranil. On reaching adolescence they were compelled to undergo an initiation involving LSD: while under the influence of the drug the child would be left in a dark room, alone apart from visits by Hamilton-Byrne or one of the psychiatrists from the group.
That is one interesting background there Mr Assange.
Makes me wonder how it is, this child of an Australian cult is gaining access to Pentagon documents? How, where or when did he make the necessary connections?
Speaking of Cults or cult leaders in the employ of governments???
Here is another curious story.
Leader of cult works as psychologist in Queensland, paid for by the government.
Is this appropriate? Is this an ongoing mind control experiment funded by the government under the guise of helping?
A WOMAN accused of leading a cult that has damaged the lives of scores of people is working as a psychologist with vulnerable patients at a community mental health service in Queensland
Natasha Lakaev’s Universal Knowledge organisation was offering courses until last year that prophesied the world would end in December 2012 and almost everyone except her devotees would die.
Ms Lakaev has faced criticism for more than a decade about the extreme practices on her courses, and accusations that she was a practitioner of ‘‘coercive persuasion’’ or mind control techniques. Oh, and she was physically violent.‘A large proportion of her clients are often initially highly unstable with disorders such as schizophrenia, delusional disorders, major depression, major anxiety and personality disorders,’’ the letter said. ‘‘Forensic clients with homicidal backgrounds are also present on the clinic client list.’’
A mind control cult leader, counseling people with a propensity to commit murder? That seems a rather odd way to help people? If the intention truly is to help.
Reading about persons in these types of positions. Positions of authority over vulnerable people makes me think back to the Rotenburg Center and Dr Israel. Dr Israel had a rather strange inspiration a CIA connected and funded inspiration BF Skinner, and his Operant Conditioning
Cults and their adherents or leaders show up in the oddest places. Dr. Israel's patients are kept in Rotenberg at taxpayer expense, a very large expense. The "treatments" he gives his patients reminds one of the mkultra experimentation done in orphanages and mental institutions and hospitals (Dr. Ewan Cameron). Again under the guise of 'helping'. Like the cult leader in Australia.
And one more creepy cult story-
