*********************************************

In The Catcher in the Rye Enigma: J.D. Salinger’s Mind Control Triggering Device or a Coincidental Literary Obsession of Criminals?  we dissect Salinger’s 1951 classic novel The Catcher in the Rye – and not everyone’s happy about that judging by some reviewers’ comments.

Some reviewers, it seems, don’t like the fact that we remind readers Salinger’s often-banned, often-censored bestseller was branded communist propaganda by American school principals and more than a few teachers were fired for assigning it to students. Little wonder Salinger’s Catcher  was nicknamed ‘the Bible of teenage angst’ and, from 1961-1982, it was the most censored book in libraries and high schools across the US.

Nor do some reviewers appreciate being reminded that Catcher  either directly inspired or was associated with some of the most infamous crimes of the 20th Century.

Presidential assassins and would-be Presidential assassins, stalkers and murderers of film stars and music icons are among the known deranged individuals who were obsessed with Salinger’s book – a book which many claim to be an assassination trigger device. The allegation pointed at Salinger is that he craftily implanted into the book coded messages that act as post-hypnotic suggestions or mind control triggers. In turn, these enabled CIA handlers to activate Manchurian Candidates for planned assassinations.

Many believe the novel was part of the CIA’s extensive mind control program known as MK-Ultra, and that while assassins, or future assassins, were being brainwashed they were forced to read the book over and over until it was embedded in their minds.

These ideas and others have been covered in pop culture, especially in the 1997 film Conspiracy Theory, in which Mel Gibson’s character carries a copy of Salinger’s book with him at all times. The cleverly-written film, which at first appears to be nothing but a lightweight romantic comedy co-starring rom-com queen Julia Roberts, becomes more intense as the story progresses and it’s revealed Mel Gibson’s character is entwined with the CIA and is a mind control victim of the agency’s MK-Ultra program.

Season three of the TV series Criminal Minds  features an episode called Limelight  in which the character of David Rossi, played by Joe Mantegna, mentions having once interviewed serial killer Ted Bundy who told him, “If you wanna stop people from becoming like me, don’t burn Catcher in the Rye.”

An episode of the animated TV series South Park  also covers the mind control theory in a humorous way when one of the show’s young characters reads the book then picks up a knife and starts saying, “Kill John Lennon, kill John Lennon.” The boy is disappointed when his father informs him the former Beatle was assassinated years earlier.

But seriously, can The Catcher in the Rye  really wake MK-Ultra sleeper assassins from their slumber? That’s up to readers to decide by the end of our book, The Catcher in the Rye Enigma.

It must be noted the idea that assassination codes are buried deep in Salinger’s book is one of the oldest conspiracy theories around and has often been explored over the decades. In fact, many readers familiar with Catcher  conspiracies may think all the theories have already been proven to be false and there’s no need to drag them up yet again.

Given what we’ve unearthed in our research for this book and indeed the entirety of The Underground Knowledge Series – especially the unique revelations on the history of mind control, the effectiveness of subliminal messages, the latest scientific studies on the brain, the Americanized Nazis in Project Paperclip and the recently declassified documents on real-life Manchurian Candidates – we believe some of the theories swirling about Salinger’s classic deserve another look.

To this day many believe J.D.

In The Catcher in the Rye Enigma, Book 4 of our Underground Knowledge Series, we examine the allegation that Salinger implanted mind control triggers into his novel  – triggers that enabled CIA handlers to activate Manchurian Candidates for planned assassinations.

The very idea that assassination codes are buried deep in Salinger’s book is one of the oldest conspiracy theories around. However, given what we’ve unearthed in our research for this book and indeed the entirety of The Underground Knowledge Series, we believe some of the theories swirling about Salinger’s classic deserve another look.

The Catcher in the Rye Enigma  unearths the mysteries surrounding the 1951 novel The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger – arguably the most controversial book of all time. Nicknamed the ‘Bible of teenage angst’, the classic novel, which is frequently labeled immoral by different groups, has been banned in various parts of America over the decades. However, the main controversy, and indeed the most common reason for it being banned, was that it either inspired or was associated with some of the most infamous crimes of the 20th Century. These crimes include the murder of John Lennon and the attempted assassination of President Reagan.

Just as this book’s subtitle suggests, the reader is left to decide whether J.D. Salinger’s novel is a “Mind Control Triggering Device” or simply a “Coincidental Literary Obsession of Criminals.”

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.

________________________________________

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.”

JFK, John Lennon, Martin Luther King, Ronald Reagan, Madonna, Jodie Foster are just some of the high profile assassination victims or intended victims who have been connected with J.D. Salinger’s classic novel The Catcher in the Rye.

 

The Catcher in the Rye

 

In our book THE CATCHER IN THE RYE ENIGMA: J.D. Salinger’s Mind Control Triggering Device or a Coincidental Literary Obsession of Criminals?, we remind readers that the murderers, stalkers and their victims and targets are all either confirmed or rumored to be part of the enduring Catcher mystery. The allegation leveled at Salinger is that he craftily implanted into his book coded messages that act as post-hypnotic suggestions or mind control triggers, which, in turn, enabled CIA handlers to activate Manchurian Candidates for planned assassinations.

It could be argued that, at best, those murders are only loosely related to Catcher  for it was, after all, a critically acclaimed masterpiece and one of the biggest selling books of the 20th Century.

We expand on this in The Catcher in the Rye Enigma. Here’s an excerpt from a chapter titled ‘The argument against the Catcher conspiracy’:

Given its worldwide popularity, the fact that the book was found in the possession of a few killers – a handful at most – could just be pure coincidence.

Today, if some new Presidential assassin or serial killer had a copy of The Da Vinci Code  or a Harry Potter  book in their possession, would anyone blink? And even though religious books such as the Bible, the Qur’an (Koran) and the Torah have inspired innumerable assassins, madmen and terrorists – some well known, some not – surely that doesn’t mean there are insidious mind control programs infused in their writings?

What about John Lennon’s killer Mark David Chapman? we hear you ask.

Yes, the man was completely obsessed with the book, but then again so, too, were countless other (normal) young people around the world in the decades following its publication. Many commented they felt as if Holden Caulfield was voicing their own inner reality and the angers and frustrations they felt in their own lives. And for those who are insane, as Chapman appeared to end up, a work as brilliantly and intensely written as Salinger’s novel was bound to reach the darkest corners of their brains, encouraging those individuals to take the story too literally, or out of context, or both.

People who are mentally ill often obsess over all kinds of artworks – such as Michael Jackson’s music, Stanley Kubrick’s movies or Andy Warhol’s paintings – believing there are dark messages embedded in those works, instructing them to kill. It’s simply a case of criminal minds latching on to warped ideas and dark concepts in popular culture. And certainly Catcher is not the only novel to inspire murders, and it won’t be the last.

As Aidan Doyle wrote on December 16, 2003 in a Salon.com article entitled When books kill: “A copy of ‘The Turner Diaries’ was found in Timothy McVeigh’s car when he was arrested. The novel was written by a leader of the National Alliance and tells the story of a white supremacist group that overthrows the government and subsequently eradicates nonwhites as well as race traitors. The narrator destroys FBI headquarters by detonating a truck loaded with ammonium nitrate and fuel oil. McVeigh used a similar mechanism to destroy the federal building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 people.”

The same article also mentions it’s not just books that have inspired killings. “A $246 million lawsuit was lodged against the makers of the game Grand Theft Auto III by the families of two people shot by teenagers allegedly inspired by the game. Such movies as ‘Natural Born Killers,’ ‘A Clockwork Orange’ and ‘Money Train’ have routinely been accused of inspiring copycat crimes.”

It has been estimated more than 100,000,000 people have read Catcher. With only a few crazy incidents attributed to it, you could reasonably argue this is not a bad record and certainly isn’t enough to justify outlandish conspiracy theories.

T.B.C.
