The Tavistock Institute Of Human Relations:
Shaping the Moral. Spiritual, Cultural Political, and Economic Decline of The United States of America.
By Dr. John D. Coleman
THE TAVISTOCK INSTITUTE FOR HUMAN RELATIONS: Shaping the Moral, Spiritual, Cultural, Political and Economic Decline of the United States. The Tavistock Institute for Human Relations has had a profound effect on the moral, spiritual, cultural, political and economic policies of the United States of America and Great Britain. It has been in the front line of the attack on the U.S. Constitution and State constitutions. No group did more to propagandize the U.S. to participate in the WWI at a time when the majority of the American people were opposed to it. Much the same tactics were used by the Social Science scientists at Tavistock to get the United States into WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Serbia and both wars against Iraq. Tavistock began as a propaganda creating and disseminating organization at Wellington House in London in the run-up to WWI, what Toynbee called "that black hole of disinformation." On another occasion Toynbee called Wellington House "a lie factory." From a somewhat crude beginning, Wellington House evolved into the Tavistock Institute and went on to shape the destiny of Germany, Russia, Britain and the United States in a highly controversial manner. The people of these nations were unaware that they were being "brainwashed." The origin of "mind control," "inner directional conditioning" and mass "brainwashing" is explained in an easy to understand book written with great authority. The fall of dynasties, the Bolshevik Revolution, WWI and WWII saw the destruction of old alliances and boundaries, the convulsions in religion, morals, family life, economic and political conduct, decadence in music and art can all be traced back to mass indoctrination (mass brainwashing) practiced by the Tavistock Institute Social Science scientists. Prominent among Tavistock's faculty were Edward Bernays, the double nephew of Sigmund Freud. It is said that Herr Goebbels, Propaganda Minister in the German Third Reich used methodology devised by Bernays as well as those of Willy Munzenberg, whose extraordinary career is touched upon in this work about the past, present and future. Without Tavistock, there would have been no WWI and WWII, no Bolshevik Revolution, Korea, Vietnam, Serbia and Iraq wars. But for Tavistock, the United States would not be rushing down the road to dissolution and collapse. V Contents FORWARD 1. Founding the World's Premiere Brainwashing Institute 1 2.

IX The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations: Shaping the Moral, Spiritual, Cultural, Political and Economic Decline of the United States of America. FORWARD. The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations was unknown to the people of the United States before Dr. Coleman exposed its existence in his monograph, The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations: Britain's Control of the United States. Up to that time, Tavistock had successfully retained its secretive role in shaping the affairs of the United States, its government and its people since its early beginning in London, in 1913 at Wellington House. Since Dr. Coleman's original article exposing this ultra- secret organization, others have come forward with claims of authorship, which they were unable to substantiate. Tavistock began as a propaganda creating and disseminating organization centered at Wellington House, which was where the original organization was put together with intent of shaping a propaganda outlet that would break down the stiff public resistance being encountered to the looming war between Britain and Germany. X The project was given to Lords Rothmere and Northcliffe and their mandate was to produce an organization capable of manipulating public opinion and directing that manufactured opinion down the desired pathway to support for a declaration of war by Great Britain against Germany. Funding was provided by the British royal family, and later by the Rothschilds to whom Lord Northcliffe was related through marriage. Arnold Toynbee was selected as Director of Future Studies. Two Americans, Walter Lippmann and Edward Bemays were appointed to handle the manipulation of American public opinion in preparation for the entry of the United States into WWI, and to brief and direct President Woodrow Wilson. From a somewhat crude beginning at Wellington House, grew an organization that was to shape the destiny of Germany, Britain and more especially the United States in manner that became a highly sophisticated organization to manipulate and create public opinion, what is commonly termed, "mass brainwashing." During the course of its evolvement, Tavistock expanded in size and ambition, when in 1937, a decision was made to use the German author Oswald Spengler's monumental work, Untergange des Abenlandes (The Decline of Western Civilization) as a model. Previously, Wellington House board members Rothmere, Northcliffe, Lippmann, and Bernays had read and proposed as a guide the writings of Correa Moylan Walsh, in particular, the book The Climax of Civilization (1917) as corresponding closely to conditions that had to be created before a New World Order in a One World Government could be ushered in. XI In this endeavor the members of the board consulted with the British royal family and obtained the approval of the "Olympians" (the inner core of the Committee of 300) to formulate a strategy. Funding was provided by the monarchy, the Rothschilds, the Milner Group and the Rockefeller family trusts. In 1936, Spengler's monumental work had come to the attention of what had become the Tavistock Institute. In preparation for changing and reshaping public opinion for the second time in less than twelve years, by unanimous consent of the board, Spengler's massive book was adopted as the blueprint for a new working model to bring about the decline and fall of Western civilization necessary to create and establish a New World Order inside a One World Government. Spengler held it bound to happen that alien elements would be introduced into Western civilization in increasing numbers, and that the West would fail at that time to expel the aliens, thereby sealing its fate, a society, whose inward beliefs and sound convictions would become at variance with its outward profession and thus Western civilization would fall by the wayside in the manner of the ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome. Tavistock thinking was that Spengler had indoctrinated Western civilization to believe that it would err on the side of Roman civilization, and expel the aliens. The genetic loss that has fallen upon Europe-and especially on Scandinavia, England, Germany, France-(the Anglo-Saxon, Nordic Alpine Germanic races) that began just before the Second World War is already so great as to be beyond expectations, and continues at an alarming pace under the skilled guidance of the Tavistock managers. XII What was a very rare instance became a common occurrence, a black man married to a white women or vice-versa. The two World Wars cost the German nation almost one quarter of its population. Most of the intellectual energies of the German nation were diverted into war channels in defense of the Fatherland at the expense of science, arts, literature, music and the cultural, spiritual and moral advancement of the nation. The same could be said of the British nation. The blaze kindled by the British under the direction of Tavistock set all of Europe on fire, and did incalculable damage according to the Tavistock blueprint that matched Spengler's predictions. Classical and Western are the only two civilizations that could bring a modem renaissance to the world. They had flourished and progressed just as long as these civilizations remained under the control of the Anglo-Saxon Nordic Alpine, Germanic races. The unsurpassed beauty of their literature, art, their classics, spiritual and moral advancement of the female sex with a very large corresponding degree of protection, was what distinguished Western and Classic civilizations from others. It was this bastion that Spengler saw coming under increasing attack and the thinking at Tavistock ran on parallel tracks, but with a totally different goal. Tavistock saw this civilizations a stumbling block to ushering a New World Order, as did the emphasis on protection and elevation of the female sex to a place of high respect and honor. xm Thus the whole thrust of Tavistock was to "democratize" the West by an attack on womanhood, and the racial, moral, spiritual and religious foundation upon which Western civilization rested. As Spengler suggested, the Greeks and Romans were devoted to the social, religious, moral and spiritual advancement and the preservation of womanhood and they were successful for just as long as they were in control and could arrange matters so that government was carried out by a limited number of responsible citizens supported by the general populace below them, all being of the same pure unadulterated race. The planners at Tavistock saw that the way to upset the balance of Western civilization was to force unwelcome changes in the race by removing control from the deserving to the undeserving in the manner of ancient Roman leaders who were supplanted by their former slaves and aliens, whom they had permitted to come and dwell among them. Tavistock, by 1937, had come a long way from its Wellington House beginnings and the successful propaganda campaign that had turned the British public from being strongly anti-war in 1913 to willing participants through the arts of manipulation with the willing cooperation of news communications media. The technique was carried across the Atlantic in 1916 to manipulate the American people to support of the war in Europe. In spite of the fact that the vast majority, including at least 50 U.S. Senators were adamantly opposed to the U.S. getting dragged into what they perceived was essentially a quarrel between Britain and France on the one hand, and Germany on the other, largely over trade and economics, the conspirators were undeterred. At that point Wellington House introduced the word, "Isolationists" as a XIV derogatory description of those Americans who opposed U.S. participation in the war. The use of such words and phrases has proliferated under the expert brainwashing of the Social sciences scientists at Tavistock. Terms like "regime change," "collateral damage" became almost new English language. With the Tavistock plan modified to suit American conditions, Bemays and Lippmann led President Woodrow Wilson to set up the very first Tavistock methodology techniques for polling (manufacturing) so-called public opinion created by Tavistock propaganda. They also taught Wilson to set up a secret body of "managers" to run the war effort and a body of "advisors" to assist the President in his decision-making. The Creel Commission was the first such body of opinion-makers set up in the United States. Woodrow Wilson was the first American president to publicly proclaim himself in favor of a Socialist New World Order inside a Socialist One World Government. His remarkable acceptance of the New World Order is found in his book The New Freedom. We say "his" book, but actually, it was written by Socialist William B. Hayle. Wilson denounced capitalism. "It is contrary to the common man and it has brought stagnation to our economy," Wilson wrote. Yet, at the time, the United States economy was enjoying prosperity and industrial expansion as it had never experienced before in its history: "We stand in the presence of a revolution — not a bloody revolution, America is not given to spilling blood — but a silent revolution, whereby America will insist upon recovering to practice those ideals which she has always XV professed, upon securing a government devoted to the general and not the special interests. We are upon the threshold of a time when the systematic life of the country will be sustained or at least supplemented at every point by government activity. And now we have to determine what kind of a government activity it shall be; whether, in the first place, it shall be directed from government itself, or whether it shall be indirect, through instrumentalities which have already constituted themselves and which stand ready to supersede government." While the U.S. was still a neutral power under the Wilson presidency, Wellington House poured out a cadence of lies about Germany, and what a threat it was to America. We are reminded of the statement made by Bakunin in 1814 as it tied in so well with the outrageous propaganda that Wilson made use of to bolster his case: "Lying by diplomacy: Diplomacy has no other mission. Every time a State wants to declare war upon another State, it starts off by launching a manifesto addressed not only to its own subjects but also to the whole world. In this manifesto it declares that right and justice are on its side and endeavors to prove that it is actuated by love of peace and humanity (and democracy), and that, imbued with generous and peaceful sentiments, it suffered for a long time in silence until mounting iniquity of its enemy forced it to bare its sword. " "At the same time it vows that, disdainful of all material conquest and not seeking any increase in territory, it will put an end to this war as soon as justice is reestablished. And its antagonist's answer with a similar manifesto, in which, naturally, right, justice and humanity and all XVI generous sentiments are to be found respectively on its side. These mutually opposed manifestos are written with the same eloquence, they breath the same righteous indignation, and one is just as sincere as the other, that is to say they are both brazen in their lies, and it is only fools who are deceived by them. Sensible persons, all those who have some political experience do not even take the trouble of reading such manifestos." President Wilson's statements just before he went to the Congress to request a constitutional declaration of war embodies every one of Bakunin's sentiments. He was "lying by diplomacy" and he used the gross propaganda manufactured at Wellington House to inflame the American public by tales of atrocities committed by the German Army in its march across Belgium in 1914. As we shall discover, it was, for the most part, a gigantic lie passed off as truth. I remember looking through a large stack of old newspapers at the British Museum where I spent five years doing in- depth research. The papers covered the years 1912 to 1920. I recall thinking at the time: "Isn't it amazing that the rush to the New World Order Socialist totalitarian government should be led by the United States, supposedly a bastion of freedom?" Then, as I recall, it came to me with great clarity that the Committee of 300 has its people at the highest and lowest echelons embedded in the U.S., in banking, industry, trade, defense, the State Department and indeed in the very White House, not to mention the Elite Club called the U.S. Senate, which in my view is a forum for pushing the New World Order." xvn I recall thinking that President Wilson's propaganda blast against Germany and the Kaiser (actually the product of Rothschild agents Lords Northcliffe and Rothmere, and the Wellington House propaganda factory) was not much different to the "contrived situation" of Pearl Harbor, the Gulf of Tonkin "incident" and looking back now I can see no difference between the propaganda lies about the brutality of German soldiers allegedly chopping off the arms and legs of little Belgian children in 1914, than the methods used to get the American people duped and doped into allowing the Bush administration to invade Iraq. Whereas in 1914 it was the Kaiser who was a "brute savage," a "ruthless murderer", a "monster", the "Butcher of Berlin", in 2002 it was President Hussein who was all of these things and a whole lot more, including the "Butcher of Baghdad!" Poor duped, deluded, deceived, connived, trustful, America! When will you ever learn? In 1917 the New World Order agenda was being rushed through the House and Senate by Woodrow Wilson, and President Bush forced the New World Order agenda for Iraq through the House and Senate in 2002 without debate, an exercise in arbitrary power and a gross violation of the U.S. Constitution for which the American people are paying a huge price. But the American people are suffering from toxic shock induced by the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations and the American people are in a state of sleepwalking and without leadership. They do not know what the price is and do not care to find out. The Committee of 300 continues to rule the United States, just as it did in the Wilson and Roosevelt presidencies, while the American people were distracted with "bread and circuses" only today it is baseball, football, endless Hollywood, and Social Security. Nothing has changed. xvm The United States, harried, hounded, pushed and shoved is headed of a fast track to the New World Order, propelled along by the Radical Republicans of the War Party who have been taken over by the scientists at the Tavistock Institute for Human Relations. Just recently I was asked by a subscriber "where do we find the Tavistock Institute?" My response was: "Look around the U.S. Senate, the House of Representatives, the White House, the State Department, the Defense Department, Wall Street, Fox T.V. (Faux T.V.) and you will see their change agents in every one of these places." President Wilson was the first U.S. president to "manage" the war through a civilian committee guided and directed by the Bemays and Lippmann from Wellington House, to which we have already made mention. The resounding success of Wellington House and its enormous influence on the course of American history began before that in 1913. Wilson had spent almost a year tearing down the protective trade tariffs that had defended the American domestic markets from being overwhelmed by "Free Trade," essentially the practice of allowing cheap British goods made with cheap labor in India to flood the American market. On October 12, 1913 Wilson signed the bill that was the beginning of the end of the unique American middle class, long the target of the Fabian Socialists. The bill was described as a measure to "adjust tariffs," but it would have been accurate to describe it as a bill to "destroy tariffs." Such was the hidden power of Wellington House that the vast majority of the American people accepted this lie, not knowing or realizing that it was a death knell for American commerce that would lead to NAFTA, GATT and the XIX World Trade Organization (WTO). Even more astonishing was the acceptance of the Federal Income Tax Act that was passed on September 5, 1913, to replace trade tariffs as the source of revenue for the Federal Government. Income Tax is a Marxist doctrine not found in the U.S. Constitution anymore than the Federal Reserve Bank is found in the Constitution. Wilson called his twin blows against the Constitution, "a fight for the people, and for free business," and said he was proud to have taken "part in the completion of a great piece of business..." The Federal Reserve Act, explained by Wilson as "reconstructing the Nation's banking and currency system" was rushed through on a flood-tide of propaganda emanating from Wellington House, just in time for the hostilities that began the horror of WWI. Most historians are agreed that without passage of the Federal Reserve Bank Act, Ford Grey would not have been able to start that terrible conflagration. The deceptive language of the Federal Reserve Act was under the guidance of Bemays and Fippman who set up a "National Citizen's Feague" with the notorious Samuel Untermeyer as its chairman, to promote the Federal Reserve Bank, that secured control of the people's money and currency and transferred it to a private monopoly without the victim's consent. One of the most interesting pieces of history surrounding the imposition of the foreign financial slavery measure was that before it was sent to Wilson for his signature, a copy was given to the sinister Colonel Edward Mandel House as the representative of Wellington House and the British oligarchy represented by the banker, J.P. Morgan. XX As to the American people, in whose name the disastrous measure was instituted, they had not the faintest idea how they had been connived, cheated, lied to and utterly deceived. An instrument of slavery was fastened around their necks without the victims ever becoming aware of it. Wellington House methodology was at its height when Wilson was coached in how to persuade Congress to declare war on Germany, although he had won election on the solemn promise to keep America out of the war then raging in Europe, a great triumph for the new art of public opinion making. It was just that - the poll questions were shaded in such away that the answers reflected the opinions of the public; not their understanding of the questions, nor their understanding of the processes of political science. A thorough search and reading of the Congressional Records from 1910 to 1920 by this writer showed very clearly that had Wilson not signed the iniquitous "currency reform" bill on December 23, 1913, the upper-level parallel secret government of the United States foretold by H.G. Wells would not have been able to commit the vast resources of the United States to the war in Europe. The House of Morgan representing the "Olympians" of the Committee of 300, and its all powerful City of London financial nexus, played a leading role in shaping the "U.S. Federal Reserve Banks," which were neither "Federal" nor "banks," but a private money-generating monopoly fastened around the necks of the American people whose money was now free to be stolen on an unimaginable scale, making them slaves of the New World Order inside the coming One World Government. The Great Depression of the 1930s was the second major catastrophic bill the American people had to pay, the first being World War I. (See Appendix) XXI Those who read this book as a first introduction to the New World Order inside a One World Government will be skeptical; but consider that no less a personage than the great Sir Harold Mackinder did not hide his beliefs about its coming. More than that, he gave notice that it might be a dictatorship. Sir Harold had an impressive resume (CV) having been Professor of Geography at the University of London; a director of the London School of Economics from 1903-1908 and a Member of Parliament from 1910-1922. He was also a close associate of Arnold Toynbee one of the leading lights at Wellington House. He had correctly predicted a core of startling geopolitical events, many of them actually coming to pass. One such "prophecy" was the founding of two Germanys, the Social Democratic Republic of Germany and the Federal Republic of Germany. Critics suggested that he got the information from Toynbee; that it was merely the long range planning of the Committee of 300 that Toynbee knew about. After Wellington House, Toynbee moved to the Royal Institute for International Affairs (RIIA), and then to London University where he held the chair for International History. In his book, America and World Revolution he said: "If we are to avoid mass-suicide, we must have our world- state quickly and this probably means that we must have it in a non-democratic form to begin with. We will have to start building a world-state now on the best design that is practicable at the moment." XXII Toynbee went on in a forthright manner saying this "world dictatorship" would have to supplant "the local national states which litter the present political map." The new world-state was to be brought about on the basis of mass mind control and propaganda that would make it acceptable. I explained in my book The Committee of 300, that Bernays "blew the whistle" on polling in his 1923 and 1928 books, Propaganda, and Crystallizing Public Opinion. This was followed by Engineering Consent: Self-preservation, ambition, pride, hunger, love of family and children, patriotism, imitativeness, the desire to be a leader, love of play-these and other drives are the psychological raw materials which every leader must take into account in his endeavor to win the public to his point of view... To maintain their self-assurance, most people need to feel certain that whatever they believe about anything is true. These revealing works are examined and we should add that in writing them, the Tavistock hierarchy apparently felt secure enough to gloat over their control of the United States and Great Britain that had blossomed into an open conspiracy along the lines first suggested by H.G. Wells. With the advent of Wellington House, funded by the British monarchy and later by Rockefeller, Rothschild and the United States, Western civilization entered into the first phase of a plan that would provide a secret government to rule the world, namely, the Committee of 300. XXIII Tavistock Institute of Human Relations was its creation. As this book is not about the Committee of 300, we would suggest that readers obtain copies of the first and second book, The Committee of 300. The "300's" carefully structured blueprint has been followed to the letter and today as we reach the end of 2005, looking back it is fairly easy for knowledgeable persons to trace the course that was laid out for Western civilization and to mark its progression to the point where we are today. This book is an attempt to do just that. 1 CHAPTER 1 Founding the World's Premiere Brainwashing Institute From its modest but vitally important beginning at Wellington House, the Tavistock Institute for Human Relations expanded rapidly to become the world's premier top-secret "brainwashing" institute." How this rapid progression was accomplished needs to be explained. The modern science of mass manipulation of public opinion was bom at Wellington House, Fondon, the lusty infant being midwifed by Ford Northcliffe and Ford Rothmere. The British monarchy, Ford Rothschild, and the Rockefellers were responsible for funding the venture. The papers we were privileged to examine showed that the purpose of those at Wellington House was to effect a change in the opinion of the British people who were adamantly opposed to war with Germany, a formidable task that was accomplished by "opinion making" through polling. The staff consisted of Arnold Toynbee, a future director of studies at the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA), Fords Norhcliffe, and the Americans, Walter Fippmann and Edward Bemays. Bemays was born in Vienna on November 22, 1891. As the nephew of Sigmund Freud the father of psychoanalysis, regarded by many as "the father of public relations" although the title properly belongs to Willy Munzenberg. Bemays pioneered the use of psychology and other social sciences to shape and form public opinion so that the public thought such manufactured opinions were their own. 2 "If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without them knowing it." Bernays postulated. He called this technique "Engineering Consent. One of his best-known techniques of achieving this goal was the indirect use of what he called third party authorities to shape the desired opinions: "If you can influence the leaders, either with or without their conscious cooperation, you automatically influence the group which they sway. This technique he called "opinion making." Perhaps we can now begin to understand how it was that Wilson, Roosevelt, Clinton, Bush the elder and the younger could so easily lead American into disastrous wars in which its people should never have become involved. The joint British and American participants concentrated their efforts on techniques as yet not tried out, to mobilize support for the war looming on the horizon. As previously stated, the British people did not want war, and said so, but Toynbee, Lippmann and Bemays expected to change that by applying techniques designed to manipulate public opinion through the use of polling. Herein we provide a review of the methods that were devised and executed to bring Great Britain and the United States into the First World War, plus the techniques that were put into practice between the two World Wars and beyond. As will be seen propaganda was to play a major role. One of the main objectives at Tavistock was to achieve the degradation of women. Tavistock recognized that Jesus Christ has brought a new place of respect in the order of civilization to womanhood, which prior to his coming had not been present. 3 After Christ's ministry, womanhood gained a respect and a high place in society absent from pre-Christian civilizations. Of course it can be argued that such an elevated status existed in the Greek and Roman empires, and that would be true to a certain extent, but not to the extent that womanhood was elevated in post-Christ society. Tavistock sought to change that and the process began immediately after WWI. The Eastern Orthodox Church which the Rus (Viking) princes of Moscow brought back from Constantinople, revered and respected womanhood, and their experience with the Khazarians whom they subsequently defeated and drove out of Russia, left them determined to protect womanhood in Russia. The founder of the Romanov dynasty, Michael Romanov was the scion of a noble family that had defended Russia on the basis of a Christian country. From 1613 the Romanovs sought to ennoble Russia and imbue it with a great spirit of Christianity, which meant also, protection for and the honoring of Russian womanhood. The Princes of Moscow under Prince Dimitri Donskoi earned the unremitting hatred of the Rothschilds for Russia because of Donskoi's defeat and expulsion of the Khazarian hordes that inhabited the lower-regions of the Volga. This barbaric warrior nation of mysterious Indo-Turk origin, had adopted the Judaic religion on passage of a decree by King Bulant after the religion was approved by the chief Khazarian soothsayer-magician-sorcerer, David el-Roi. It was el Roi's personal flag, now called the "Star of David" that became the official flag of the Khazarian nation when they settled in Poland after being forced out of Russia. 4 The flag was adopted by the Zionists as their standard and is still mistakenly called the "Star of David." Christians make the error of confusion linking it with the Old Testament King David, when in fact there is no relation between the two. The hatred of Russia was compounded in 1612 when the Romanov dynasty led a Russian Army against Poland taking back large parts of Poland that had formerly belonged to Russia. The principal architect of enmity brought to bear against Russia was the Rothschild dynasty and it was this burning hatred that Tavistock used and channeled in its plan to destroy Western civilization. The first opportunity created by Tavistock came in 1905 with the attack by the Japanese Navy that completely surprised the Russian Fleet. The exercise was ban kr olled by Jacob Schiff, the Wall Street banker, who was related to Rothschild. The defeat of the Russian fleet at Port Arthur in a surprise attack marked the beginning of the pall of gloom that was about to roll in over Christian Europe. The Rockefeller Standard Oil Group directed by Tavistock and with the aid of the "300" engineered the Russo-Japanese War. The money used to finance the operation came from Jacob Schiff, but was actually provided by the Rockefeller General Education Board, whose outward purpose was to finance Negro education. All of the propaganda and advertising for the board was written and crafted by the Social scientists at Tavistock, which was then called "Wellington House." 5 In 1941 another Rockefeller front organization, the Institute for Pacific Relations (IPR) gave large sums to its Japanese counterpart in Tokyo. The money was then funneled to a member of the imperial family by Richard Sorge, a Russian master-spy, for the purposes of inducing Japan to attack the United States at Pearl Harbor. Again, Tavistock was the originator of all of IPR's publications. Although it was not yet evident, as Spengler was to mention in his monumental work, published in 1936, it marked the beginning of the end of the old order. Contrary to most establishment accounts of history, the "Russian" revolution was not a Russian revolution at all, but a foreign ideology backed primarily by the Committee of 300 and its arm, the Tavistock Institute, that was violently forced upon a startled, unprepared and dismayed Romanov family. It was political warfare, low grade warfare and psychological warfare in which Tavistock had become well versed. As Winston Churchill was to remark: "They transported Lenin in a sealed truck like a plague bacillus from Switzerland into Russia," and then once established "Lenin and Trotsky seized Russia by the hair of its head." Much has been written (but nearly always in passing as if it is a mere postscript to history) about the "sealed truck," "sealed car," "sealed train," that transported Lenin and his Bolshevik revolutionaries safely through the midst of war-tom Europe and deposited them in Russia, there to begin their imported Bolshevik Revolution so mistakenly termed the "Russian Revolution." 6 Documents the author was privileged to study at Wellington House and what was revealed in the Arnold Toynbee papers and Bruce Lockhart's private papers, led to the conclusion that without Toynbee, Bruce Lockhart of MI6 British intelligence and without the complicity of at least five European nations, ostensibly loyal and friendly with the Court at St. Petersburg, the merciless Bolshevik Revolution would have been still-bom. As this account must of necessity be limited to Tavistock's participation in the affair, it will not be as a complete account of the skullduggery we would liked to have presented. According to Milner's private papers his aides through Tavistock contacted a fellow Socialist Fritz Platten. (Milner was a leading Fabian Socialist although he scorned Sydney and Beatrice Webb.) It was Platten, who planned the logistics of the trip and oversaw it until the revolutionaries arrived in Petrograd. This was confirmed and borne out by the Wilhelmstrasse Files the majority of which we were able to gain access to, which files were open to certain people qualified to read them. They tallied fairly closely with Bruce Fockhart's account in his private papers as well as what Ford Alfred Milner had to say about the underhand affair that betrayed Russia. It appeared that Milner had many contacts among the Bolshevik expatriates among them, Fenin. It was to Ford Milner that Fenin went, when he needed money for the Revolution. Armed with a letter of introduction from Platten, Fenin met with Ford Milner and laid down his plan for the overthrow of the Romanov's and Christian Russia. Milner agreed on condition that he could send his agent Bruce Fockhart of MI6 to supervise the day-to-day affairs and report back on Fenin. 7 Lord Rothschild and the Rockefellers demanded that they be allowed to send Sydney Reilly to Russia to supervise transfer of Russia's natural resources and the gold rubles held in the Central Bank to London. This was agreed to by Lenin, and later Trotsky. To seal the bargain, Lord Milner, on behalf of the Rothschilds, gave Lenin 60 millions pounds in gold sovereigns while the Rockefellers contributed around $40 million dollars. Countries in complicity with the "sealed train" affair were Great Britain, Germany, Finland, Switzerland and Sweden. While the United States was not directly involved, it must have been aware of what was going on. After all, on the orders of President Wilson, a brand new American passport was issued to Leon Trotsky, (whose real name was Lev Bronstein) so that he could travel in peace, although Trotsky was not a U.S. citizen. Lenin and his compatriots were provided with a private well- appointed rail carriage by the top German government functionaries and always kept locked by agreements with stations along the line. Platten was in charge and he laid down the rules for the trip, some of which are listed in the Wilhelmstrasse Files: The carriage was to remain locked for the entire trip. No one could board the carriage without Platten's permission. The train would have extra territorial status. No passports were to be asked at borders. Tickets would be bought at regular prices. No "security issues" to be raised by the military or police of any country en-route. 8 According to the Wilhelmstrasse Files, the trip was authorized and approved by General Ludendorff and Kaiser Wilhelm. Ludendorff went so far as to say that if Sweden refused to let the Bolsheviks pass, he would guarantee them passage into Russia through the German lines! As it turned out, the Swedish Government raised no objection and neither did the Finnish Government. One of the notable revolutionaries, who joined the train when it arrived at the German frontier with Switzerland, was Radek, who was to play a leading role in the bloody Bolshevik Revolution. There were some lighter moments too. The Wilhelmstrasse Files describe how the carriage missed its engine at Frankfurt, resulting in it being shunted to and fro for about 8 hours. The party had to de-train in the German Baltic town of Sasnitz where they were accorded "decent accommodation" by the German Government. The Swedish Government kindly gave them ferry transport to Malmo, from where they sailed to Stockholm, where "nice" accommodation awaited the Bolshevik party for an overnight layover and then it was on to the Finnish border. There, the intrepid Platten left the high-spirited party and the final journey into Russia was made by train to Petrograd. Thus an epic journey that began in Zurich, Switzerland, ended in Petrograd. Lenin had arrived on the scene and Russia was about to be brought low. And throughout, Bemays and Lippmann and their associates at Wellington House (Tavistock) kept up a steady flow of brainwashing propaganda that it is safe to conclude, duped much of the world. CHAPTER 2 Europe falls off the precipice 9 Europe after WWI and the close of the Bolshevik Revolution was forced to change according to the Tavistock blueprint. When, thanks to the British engendered and instigated First World War, Europe fell off a precipice into the end of their world, or perhaps it might be more appropriate to say, shambled along like zombies until the last of the era vanished into the darkness of the abyss, the forced changes became very much apparent. This is not a book about the First World War per se. Hundreds of thousands of words have been written about the cause and effects of the greatest tragedy ever to befall mankind, and yet it has not been adequately addressed and probably never will be. One thing that many writers -myself included - are agreed on. The war was started by Great Britain out of sheer hated of Germany's rapid progress toward becoming a major economic power in competition against Britain, and Lord Edward Grey was the principle architect of the war. That it was unpopular and not approved of by a large majority of the British people called for "special measures" a new department to handle the challenge. In essence, that is the reason why Wellington House came into existence. From such a small beginning, it progressed into the gargantuan Tavistock Institute of Human Relations, by 2005, the world's premier brainwashing institution and a most sinister force. That it will have to be confronted and put out of business if the United States is to survive as a constitutional Republic with a Republican form of government guaranteed to the 50 States is the considered 10 opinion of a number of members of the U.S. Senate, who were consulted in preparation for this book, but who asked not to be named. The aftermath of the First World War and the failed attempts to form a League of Nations served only to emphasize the gap between the old Western civilization and the new. The economic disaster of postwar Germany hung like the smoke from a funeral pyre over Western culture adding to the dismal, sad and fearful climate that began in the 1920s. Historian agree that all of the combatants suffered economic ravage of varying degree, although Russia was somewhat spared, only to be destroyed by the Bolsheviks, while Germany and Austria were the hardest hit. A strange kind of a forced gaiety descended on Europe in the 1920s (in which I include Britain) and the United States. It was put down to "rebellious youth" and people generally being "sick of war and politics." In point of fact, people were reacting to the long-range penetration and inner-directional conditioning of the masters at Tavistock. In the period between the end of WWI and 1935, they were as much shell-shocked as were the troops who had survived the hell of the trenches with shot and shell flying all around them, only now, it was economic shot and shell and vast changes in social mores that numbed their senses. But the end result of the "treatment" was the same. People threw discretion to the winds and the moral rot that was set in motion in 1918, is ongoing and gathering momentum. In the state of forced gaiety, nobody saw the coming of the world economic crash and subsequent world depression. 11 It is agreed by most historians that this condition was engineered and we are led to believe, that Tavistock played a role in the feverish publicity campaigns of various factions in that period. In support of our contention that the crash and depression was a contrived event. See Appendix of Events. Spengler foretold what was to happen and as it turns out his predictions were amazingly accurate. "Decadent society" and "loose women" characterized by the "flappers", and men in coats fitted with hip flasks, who demanded and got a lessening of female modesty that came in with higher hemlines, bobbed hair and excessive make-up, women smoking and drinking in public. As money became harder to come by and soup kitchen and unemployment lines grew longer, hemlines grew shorter, while the writings of Sinclair Lewis, F. Scott Fitzgerald, James Joyce and D.H. Lawrence drew gasps, the latest Broadway shows and nightclub acts revealed a lot more of women's hidden charms than ever before, and put them out on public display. It was noted by fashion designers in 1919 in the New Yorker magazine that "hemlines this year are six inches from the ground and very daring." CHAPTER 3 How "times" were made to change 13 But that was only the beginning. In 1935 with Hitler rising to power, guaranteed by the impossible conditions forced upon Germany at Versailles, hemlines were also rising to the dizzy height of the knees, except in Germany, where Hitler was demanding modesty from German womanhood and getting it, along with wholesome respect, which did not suit Tavistock's book. People who stopped to think at all said they hated the way "times are changing," but what they did not and could not know was that times were being made to change according to a carefully laid out Tavistock formula. Everywhere else in Europe and America the revolt was on as "emancipation" fever spread. In the United States it was silent screen idols who led the way, but this was no match with what was happening in Europe where every single "pleasure" was being indulged in, including homosexuality, that had long been hidden in darkness and never mentioned in polite society. Homosexuality emerged alongside lesbianism to shock disgust, and it seemed, to deliberately affront those who still lingered in the old order. A study of this aberration showed that homosexuality and lesbianism became rampant not out of any inner or latent desires, but as a means to "shocking" the old establishment with its rigid codes of good order. Music too suffered and "went to the dogs" in all manner of jazz and other "decadent" forms. 14 Tavistock was now in the most crucial stage of developing its plan that called for womanhood to be reduced to a lessening standard of morality and of feminine behavior never thought possible. Nations were in a state of numbness, "shell- shocked" by the radical changes forced upon them which seemed impossible to stop, in which a complete absence of female modesty reflected in learned behavioral attitudes that made the 1920s and 1930s, look like a ladies Sunday school teacher's convention. There was no stopping the "sexual revolution" that swept the world during that era and the planned degradation of womanhood that went with it. Some voices were heard, notably G.K. Chesterton and Oswald Spengler, but it was not enough to blunt the assault launched by the Tavistock Institute that had in effect "declared war on Western civilization." The effects of "long range penetration and inner directional conditioning" were everywhere to be observed. The moral, spiritual, racial, economic, cultural and intellectual bankruptcy we are in the midst of today is not some social phenomenon or the result of something abstract or sociological that just "happened". Rather it was the outcome of a carefully planned Tavistock program. What we are seeing is not accidental, some aberration of history. Rather it is the end product of a deliberately induced social and moral crisis evident everywhere and in such personages as Mick Jagger, Oprah Winfrey, Britney Spears, "reality" television shows, "music" seemingly an amalgam of every base instinct, Fox News (Faux News,) near pornographic movies in mainstream theaters, advertising in which modesty and decency are cast to the winds, loud uncouth behavior in public places, especially in American restaurants; Katie Curie and a host other of 15 female non-entities suddenly "created" to become highly- paid "television anchors" or talk show hosts, all of whom have been trained to talk in a hard, grating monotonous voices totally lacking in cadence, as if talking through clenched jaws, in a manner that is harsh, strident and hard on the ears. Whereas television news readers and "anchormen" had always been men, suddenly, there were no more than a dozen men in the field. We see it in non-entity "stars" in the movie industry that chum out movies of an increasingly low cultural standard. We see it also in the glorification of interracial marriages, divorce on demand, abortion, and blatant homosexual and lesbian behavior, in the loss of religious beliefs and in Western civilization family life. Such "stars" are Ellen DeGeneres, who have absolutely no talent and nothing of any cultural value to offer, are held up as models for impressionable young girls who are increasingly on parade with as much as 75 percent of their bodies exposed. We see it in a massive increase in drug addiction and all manner of social evil as in Canada passing a "law" making homosexual and lesbian "marriage" legal under the threadbare guise of "civil rights." We see it in wholesale corruption of the political system and constitutional mayhem where the House and Senate permits flagrant violations of the highest law in the land, at every level of government and nowhere more so than in the Executive branch of government, where every president since Roosevelt has taken powers to which the President is not entitled. We see it in the illicit taking of war powers by the President when such powers are explicitly denied to the Executive by the U.S. Constitution. 16 We see it in a new dimension of constitutional disobedience added to an ugly list of "laws" not empowered by the Constitution, one of the most recent and most shocking being the U.S. Supreme Court's blatant exceeding of it powers in breaking down States rights and electing George Bush, the younger as the President. This had to be one of the most savage blows struck against the Constitution in the grossest contravention of the 10 th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in the history of the United States. Yet, so dazed and shell- shocked are the American people that no protest was voiced, no mass demonstrations; no calls for the Supreme Court to be reined in. In this one incident alone, the power of Tavistock's "long range penetration and inner directional conditioning" proved to be a huge triumph. No, this condition of disintegration of our Republic in which we find ourselves in 2005 did not simply evolve; rather it is the end product of a carefully planned social engineering brainwashing project of immense proportions. The truth is reflected in the death throes of what was once the greatest nation on Earth. The physiological conditioning papers written by the social scientists at Tavistock are working well. Your reaction is a programmed one. You cannot think in any other way unless you make a supreme effort. Nor can you take steps to free yourself from this condition unless you can first identify the enemy and his plan for the dissolution of the United States and Europe in particular and the Western world in general. That enemy is called the Tavistock Institute for Human Relations and it has been at war with Western civilization since its earliest days before it found form and substance at Wellington House and from there evolved into its present facilities at Sussex University 17 and the Tavistock Clinic in London. Before I unmasked this institution in 1969, it was unknown in the United States. It is without doubt the world's premier brainwashing social engineering establishment. We shall see what it achieved in its early days in pre-WWI England and since then in the run-up to WWII and post WWII to the present time. During WWII the Tavistock Institute was headquartered at the British Army Physiological Warfare Division. We have covered its history during its formative years at Wellington House and we now proceed to the pre- World War II and post WWII activities. CHAPTER 4 Social engineering and the Social scientists 19 Dr. Kurt Lewin was its chief theoretician who specialized in the teaching and application of topological psychology, which was and remains the most advanced method of behavior modification. Lewin was assisted by Major General John Rawlings Reese, Eric Trist, W.R. Bion, H.V. Dicks and several of the "greats" of brainwashing and social engineering like Margaret Meade and her husband, Gregory Bateson. Bemays was the top consultant right up to the time George Bush was placed in the White House by the Supreme Court. We do not want to get too technical and thus will not get into specifics of how they applied the Social Scientists sciences. Most will accept the generic term of "brainwashing" as an overall explanation of the activities of this, the "mother of all think tanks." It will come as no small surprise to learn that Lewin and his team founded the Stanford Research Center, the Wharton School of Economics, MIT and the National Institute of Mental Health among scores of other institutions fondly believed to be "American" institutions. During the course of years, the Federal Government contributed millions upon millions of dollars to Tavistock and its expanded web of interlinking institutions, while corporate America and Wall Street came up with matching amounts. We make bold to say that without the amazing growth and advances techniques for mass brainwashing developed by the Tavistock Institute, there would have been no Second World War, nor any of the wars that followed, and certainly not the two Gulf Wars, the second of which is still raging in November 2005. 20 By the year 2000 there was hardly any aspect of life in America into which Tavistock's tentacles had not reached and that included every level of government from local to federal, industry, trade, education and the political institutions of the nation. Every mental and psychological aspect of the nation was analyzed, recorded, profiled and stored in computer memory banks. What has come out of this is what Tavistock calls "a three- system response" and it is how population groups react to stress resulting from "contrived situations" that become crisis management exercises. What we have in the U.S. and Britain is a government, that creates a situation viewed by its citizens as a crisis, and government then manages that "crisis." An example of a "contrived situation" was the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941. The attack on Pearl Harbor was "contrived" as previously explained herein with the transfer of Rockefeller cash to Richard Sorge the master spy, and then to a member of the imperial family to prompt Japan to fire the first shots so that the Roosevelt administration could take the United States into WWII. The economic strangulation of Japan by Britain and the United States unilaterally choking off the flow of essential raw materials to the island factory that was Japan, had reached a point where a decision was made to put an end to it. Tavistock played an enormous role in crafting the massive wave of anti- Japanese propaganda that swept the United States into the war in Europe via war against Japan. 21 Unbearable economic pressure was put on Japan while at the same time the Roosevelt administration refused to "negotiate," until the Tokyo government could see no way out but to attack at Pearl Harbor. Roosevelt had conveniently obligingly shifted the Pacific Fleet into harm's way by moving it from its safe-haven at San Diego to Pearl Harbor, for absolutely no valid or strategic reason, thereby placing it squarely in reach of the Japanese Navy. Another example is more recent; the Gulf War that began when a hue and a cry was raised about Iraq's alleged stocks of nuclear and chemical weapons, the so-called "weapons of mass destruction," (WMD's.) The Bush administration and the Blair government knew the issue was a "contrived situation" without foundation or merit; they knew that there were no such weapons. Indisputable proof existed that Hussein's weapons program had been nullified after the 1991 Gulf War and through continued brutal sanctions. In short, the two Western "leaders" were caught out in a web of lies, yet such is the power of the Committee of 300 and the brainwashing power of Tavistock, that they remained in office although it is an accepted fact that because of their lies, at least one million Iraqis and more than 2000 American servicemen dead and 25,999 wounded (Russia's GRU Military Intelligence figures) of which 53 percent are maimed, with the cost in monetary terms as of October 2005, exceeding $550 billion. The Iraqi death toll is the total of both Gulf Wars of which the majority are civilians who died from the lack of food, clean water and medicine as a result of the criminal sanctions imposed by the British and U.S. Governments under cover of the U.N. 22 In carrying out sanctions against Iraq, the U.N. violated its own charter and from then on became a crippled institution lacking credibility. There is no parallel in history where a man holding the highest office was proved to be a liar and deceiver and yet could remain in power as if nothing had stained his office, a state of affairs that demonstrates the power of the Tavistock Institute's "long range penetration and inner conditioning" treatment of the American people, that would cause them docilely to accept such a turgid, horror-filled situation without ever taking to the streets in rage. Well did Henry Ford say that "people deserve the government they get" if the people do nothing to turn that government out of office, such as is the right of the American people under their U.S. Constitution, then they deserve to have liars and deceivers running their nation and their lives. On the other hand, the American people may well be going through the one of the three phases of what Dr. Fred Emery, at one time the senior psychiatrist at Tavistock, once described as "social environmental turbulence." According to Emery: "Large populations groups manifest the following symptoms when subjected to conditions of violent social changes, stress and turbulence which can be divided into well-defined categories: Superficiality is the condition that manifests itself when the threatened population group reacts by adopting shallow sloganeering, which they attempt to pass off as ideals." Very little "ego investment" takes place making the first phase a "maladaptive response" because, as Emery stated, "the cause of the crisis is not isolated and identified" and 23 the crisis and tension is not abated, but continues for as long as the controller want it to last. The second phase of the crisis reaction (since the crisis is continuing), is "fragmentation", a condition in which panic strikes, "social cohesion" falls apart with the result that very small groups form and attempt to protect themselves from the crisis with little or no regard for the expense or cost to other fragmented, small groups. This phase Emery calls "passive maladaption," while still failing to identify the cause of the crisis. The third phase is when the victims turn away from the source of the induced crisis and the resulting tension. They take "fantasy trips of internal migration, introspection and obsession with self." This is what Tavistock calls "disassociation and self realization." Emery goes on to explain that "the passive maladaption responses are now coupled with "active maladaptive responses." Emery states that over the past 50 years that experiments in applied social psychology and resultant "crisis management" have taken over all aspects of life in America and the results are stored in the computers in the major "think tanks" such as Stanford University. The scenarios are taken out, used and revised from time to time and, according to Tavistock, "the scenarios are in operation at the present time." Translated this means that Tavistock has the majority of the American people profiled and brainwashed. If any part of the American public is ever able to identify the cause of the crises that have washed over this nation in the past seventy years, the social engineering structure built by Tavistock will come crashing down. But that has not yet happened. Tavistock continues to drown the American public in its sea of created public opinion. 24 The social engineering developed by the Social Sciences scientists at Tavistock has been used as a weapon during this century's two world wars, especially World War I. The pollsters who developed it have been quite frank that they employ on the American population the same devices and methods used and experimented with against enemy populations. Today, the manipulation-by-polls of public opinion has become a central technique in the hands of the social engineers and controllers of the Social scientists employed at Tavistock and its many "think tanks" located all over the United States and Britain. 25 CHAPTER 5 Do we have what H.G. Wells called "An Invisible Government?" As I have previously related, the modem science of making public opinion through advanced techniques of manipulating mass-opinion began at one of the West's most advanced propaganda factory situated in Britain at Wellington House. This facility dedicated to social engineering and creating public opinion at the commencement of World War I, was under the aegis of Lords Rothmere and Northcliffe, and the future director of studies of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA), Arnold Toynbee. Wellington House had an American Section, whose most prominent members were Walter Lippmann and Edward Bemays. As we discovered later, Bernays was the nephew of Sigmund Freud, a fact carefully hidden from public view. Jointly, they centered work on techniques to "mobili z e" support for World War I among the masses of people who were opposed to war with Germany. The public perception was that Germany was a friend of the British people, not an enemy and the British people saw no need to fight Germany. After all, was it not true that Queen Victoria was the cousin of Kaiser Wilhelm II? Toynbee, Lippmann and Bemays worked to persuade them that war was necessary, using the techniques of the new science through new arts of mass-manipulation via the communications media for its propaganda purposes tinged with willingness to lie, which was just getting into its stride, having learned a great deal of experience during the Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902). It was not only the British public whose perception of events had to be altered, but also a recalcitrant American public. 26 To this end Bernays and Lippmann were instrumental in getting Woodrow Wilson to establish the Creel Committee, which created the first body of methodological techniques for dissemination of successful propaganda and for the science of polling to secure the "correct" opinion. From the beginning the techniques were designed in such a way that polling (public opinion-making) was based on one obvious, but striking feature: — it was concerned with people's opinions, not with their understanding of the processes of science. Thus, by intent, the pollsters elevated an essentially irrational element of mind to a primary level of public focus. This was a conscious decision to undermine the grasps of reality of masses of people in an increasingly complex industrial society. If you have ever watched "Fox News" where viewers are given the results of a poll about "what Americans are thinking," and then for the next hour found yourself shaking your head and wondering what the results of the poll reflected about your own thinking processes, then you could only have felt more puzzled than ever. The key to understanding Fox News and the poll might lie in what Lippmann had to say about such matters. In his 1922 book, Public Opinion, Lippmann outlined Tavistock's psychological warfare methodology. In an introductory chapter, "The World Outside and the Pictures in Our Heads," Lippmann stressed, "that the object of study of the public opinion social analyst is reality as defined by internal perception or images of that reality. Public opinion deals with indirect, unseen, and puzzling facts, and there is nothing obvious about them. The situations to which public opinions refer are known only as opinions...." 27 "The pictures inside the heads of these human beings, the pictures of themselves, of others, of their needs, purposes, and relationship, are their public opinions. Those pictures, which are acted upon by groups of people, or by individuals acting in the name of groups, are Public Opinion with capital letters. The picture inside so often misleads men in their dealings with the world outside." From this evaluation, it is easy to take the next decisive step made by Bemays, — that the elites who run society can and do marshal the resources of mass communications to mobilize and alter the "herd" mind. One year after Lippmann's book, Bernays authored Crystallizing Public Opinion. He followed that in 1928 with a book entitled quite simply: Propaganda. In the first chapter, "Organizing Chaos" Bemays wrote: The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized, habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government, which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas- suggested, largely by men, that we have never heard of... Our invisible governors are, in many cases, unaware of the identity of their fellow members in the inner cabinet. Whatever attitude one chooses to take toward this condition, it remains a fact that in almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, 28 in our social conductor or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons — a trifling fraction of our hundred arid twenty million — who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires, which control the public mind, who harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world. In Propaganda, Bemays followed his praise of the "invisible government" by underscoring the next phase that propaganda techniques would follow: As civilization has become more complex, and as the need for invisible government has been increasingly demonstrated, the technical means have been invented and developed by which opinion may be regimented. With the printing press and the newspaper, the telephone, telegraph, radio and airplanes, ideas can spread rapidly and even instantaneously over the whole of America. To back up his point, Bemays quoted the mentor of "public opinion manipulation," H. G. Wells. He cited a 1928 article in the New York Times in which Wells welcomed "modem means of communication" for "opening up a new world of political processes," and for allowing "the common design" to be "documented and sustained against perversion and betrayal." For Wells, the advent of "mass communication" leading up to television meant fantastic new paths for social control beyond the wildest dreams of the earlier mass- manipulation fanatics of the British Fabian Society. We shall return to this vitally important subject later herein. 29 CHAPTER 6 Mass communications ushers in the polling industry For Bemays, his recognition of Wells' idea won him a key place in the hierarchy of U.S. public opinion controllers; in 1929, he won a position at CBS, which had recently been taken over by William Paley. By the same token, the advent of mass communications ushered in the polling/sampling industry, to organize the perceptions of the masses for the media mafia (part of the "invisible government" running the show from behind the scenes.) By 1935-36, polling was in full swing. In the same year, Elmo Roper began his Fortune magazine FOR surveys, which evolved into his "What People Are Thinking" column for the New York Herald Tribune. George Gallup initiated the American Institute of Public Opinion; — in 1936 he opened up the British Institute of Public Opinion. Gallup was to headquarter his activities around Princeton University, intermeshing with the Office of Public Opinion Research/Institute for International Social Research/Psychology Department complex run by Hadley Cantril, who was destined to play an increasingly important role in developing the psychological profiling methods later to be used in manufacturing the Aquarian Conspiracy. In the same 1935-36 period, the first-time use was made of polling in presidential elections, under the impetus of two newspapers owned by the Cowles family, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune and the Des Moines Register. The Cowles are still in the news business. 30 Based in Spokane, Washington, they are active opinion makers and their support of the Bush war in Iraq was a crucial factor. It is not certain who introduced the practice of "advisors to the President," - those persons who are not elected by the citizens and whom they have no opportunity to vet, but who decided the internal and external foreign policies of the Nation. Woodrow Wilson was the first American President to make use of the practice. Opinion Research and World War II These were all small lead-ups to the next phase, triggered by two important intersecting developments: the arrival of emigre psychological warfare expert Kurt Lewin in Iowa, and the involvement of the United States in World War II. World War II provided the emerging Tavistock Social sciences scientists with enormous scope for experimentation. Lewin's leadership put together the key-force that would deploy after World War II to utilize those techniques developed in warfare against the population of the United States. In fact in 1946, Tavistock declared war on the civilian population of the United States and has remained in a state of war ever since. The basic conceptions expounded by Lewin, Wells, Bernays, and Lippmann remained in place as the guidepost for manipulation of public opinion; the war gave the Social scientists the opportunity to apply them in highly concentrated form and to bring together a large number of institutions under their direction to further the ends of their experiments. 31 The core institute which was the vehicle for making "public opinion," was the Committee on National Morale. Ostensibly established to mobilize support for the war in much as President Wilson had set up his management committee to "manage" WWI, its real purpose was to carry out the intensive profiling of both the "Axis" and Americans population for the purposes of creating and maintaining a means of social control. The committee was headed by several leaders of American society, including Robert P. Bass, Herbert Bayard Swope, among other notables. Its secretary was Margaret Meade's husband, Gregory Bateson, one of the principal instigators of the CIA's notorious "MK - Ultra" LSD experiments that some experts consider as the launch vehicle for the U.S. counterculture of drugs, rock and sex. The committee's Board of Trustees included poll-taker George Gallup; intelligence agent Ladislas Farago and Tavistock psychologist, Gardner Murphy. The committee ran a number of special projects, the most important being a major study on how best to wage Psychological Warfare on Germany. The key personnel critical to the development of the public opinion project were: * Kurt K. Lewin, Education and History; Psychology; Social Sciences * Professor Gordon W. Allport, Psychology * Professor Edwin G. Borin, Psychology * Professor Hadley Cantril, Psychology * Ronald Lippitt, Social Sciences * Margaret Mead, Anthropology, Social Sciences; Youth & Child Development 32 The staff numbered more than a 100 researchers who comprised the staff of the Committee, and several opinion- profiling institutions critical to the project. One such a special project team was in the Office and Strategic Services (OSS) (the forerunner of the CIA) composed of Margaret Mead, Kurt Lewin, Ronald Lippitt, Dorwin Cartwright, John K. French and public-opinion makers like Samuel Stouffer (later chairman of the Laboratory Social Relations group at Harvard University); Paul Lazarsfeld of Columbia University's Sociology Department, who developed with profiler Harold Las swell an "opinion research" methodology for the OSS based on detailed "content analysis" of the local press of enemy countries and Rensis Likert. Likert, a Prudential Insurance Company key executive immediately before the war, had perfected profiling techniques as the director of research for the Life Insurance Agency Management Association. This equipped him to interact favorably with the head of the U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey, who was the former head of Prudential Life Insurance Company. Likert served as director of the division of morale of the Strategic Bombing Survey from 1945-1946 from which position he had enormous scope for mass public opinion profiling and manipulation. CHAPTER 7 The making of public opinion
