In Brave New World Revisited writer, humanist, pacifist Aldous Huxley said:

It is perfectly possible for a man to be out of prison, and yet not free – to be under no physical constraint and yet to be a psychological captive, compelled to think, feel and act as the representatives of the national state, or of some private interest within the nation, wants him to think, feel and act.

The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative.

The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free. That he is not free is apparent only to other people. His servitude is strictly objective.

Aldous Huxley (1894-1963)

We have researched MK-Ultra and the secret history of mind control in our conspiracy thriller series The Orphan Trilogy, and this is what we uncovered:

MK-Ultra, the CIA’s far-reaching mind control program, was an umbrella project spawned from the US Government’s super-secret Project Paperclip, a sinister venture that involved bringing dozens of Nazi scientists to America immediately after World War Two. Some believe MK-Ultra’s beginnings actually go back to the horrendous psychiatric experiments the Nazis conducted during the Holocaust.

Researching declassified CIA documents, we also became aware of the often-disastrous impact MK-Ultra had had on the lives of CIA operatives and unwitting US citizens over the years.

Some of America’s highest profile assassins (including the likes of John Lennon’s killer Mark David Chapman and Robert Kennedy’s assassin Sirhan Sirhan) claimed they were CIA-programmed killers hypnotized by MK-Ultra…The media portrayed them as crazed lone gunmen, so naturally the public paid little attention to their claims.

        

                     Sirhan and Chapman – Manchurian Candidates?

We believe it’s possible some of these men were mind-controlled soldiers, or Manchurian Candidates, carrying out assassination orders their conscious minds were not even aware of.
