In summarizing our book THE CATCHER IN THE RYE ENIGMA: J.D. Salinger’s Mind Control Triggering Device or a Coincidental Literary Obsession of Criminals? we acknowledge the alleged conspiracy surrounding Salinger’s novel The Catcher in the Rye has already been studied ad nauseam. The conspiracy we refer to, of course, is that many high profile assassination victims or intended victims have been connected with Salinger’s classic. (For those yet to catch up with this, refer to our blog of August 16).
JFK and John Lennon…amongst the alleged victims.
And we acknowledge the general consensus by experts is that it is a mere coincidence the criminals involved committed, or at least planned, such horrific crimes after reading Salinger’s book. However, we also ask our readers how many of the so-called experts know about MK-Ultra and the highly documented history of mind control? And how many are aware of the intelligence community’s experiments proving Manchurian Candidates are indeed possible?
Here’s an excerpt from our book that addresses these very questions:
We’re certainly not implying we are experts, but it’s a fact that most who have analyzed Catcher conspiracy theories have been authorities in either literature or criminology with highly specific knowledge in their chosen fields. Perhaps to more accurately assess this subject a prerequisite would be to have a broader knowledge of such topics as the way intelligence agencies operate, the dark history of assassinations and suspicious lone gunmen, and Project Paperclip’s Americanized Nazis as well as understanding how advanced the science of mind control really is.
We ain’t saying Catcher is definitely a mind control mechanism for those who have been brainwashed by intelligence agencies. But at the very least, the book had an accidental and unintended influence on some of the most heinous and high profile crimes of the 20th Century. And to us that seems very convenient or coincidental or suspicious – take your pick.
“They say music can alter moods and talk to you / Well, can it load a gun up for you and cock it too? / Well if it can, and the next time you assault a dude / Just tell the judge it was my fault, and I’ll get sued.” -Eminem, lyric from Sing for the Moment
Just like any good story, maybe there’s a few facts hidden within the fiction and a healthy dose of fiction buried amongst the facts. Perhaps J.D. Salinger never bothered to publicly comment on the crimes associated with his book as he liked the mystery that surrounded it.
And on that note let’s allow the man himself have the final word…
“It’s partly true, too, but it isn’t all true,” Salinger wrote in The Catcher in the Rye. “People always think something’s all true.”
