Famous People Speaking About Mind Control

“Ideas are more powerful than guns.  We would not let our enemies have guns; why should we let them have ideas?”
– Joseph Stalin


“More than half a century ago Hitler said the masses take a long time to understand and remember, thus it is necessary to repeat the message time and time and time again.  The public must be conditioned to accept the claims that are made…no matter how outrageous or false those claims might be.”
– Carl Jensen


“Those who manipulate the organized habits and opinions of the masses constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.” 
– Edward Bernays, assistant to William Paley, founder of CBS


“We need a program of psychosurgery and political control of our society. The purpose is physical control of the mind. Everyone who deviates from the given norm can be surgically mutilated. The individual may think that the most important reality is his own existence, but this is only his personal point of view. This lacks historical perspective. Man does not have the right to develop his own mind. This kind of liberal orientation has great appeal. We must electrically control the brain. Some day armies and generals will be controlled by electrical stimulation of the brain.”

– Dr. Jose Delgado, MKULTRA


“You can hardly imagine the warfare that broke out in this area in the first half of the last century.  It would hardly be an exaggeration to say that sometimes real ‘astral battles’ took place.”

– General Boris Ratnikov, former KGB officer


“A handful of us determine what will be on the evening news broadcasts, or, for that matter, in the New York Times or Washington Post or Wall Street Journal….  Indeed it is a handful of us with this awesome power….And those [news stories] available to us already have been culled and re-culled by persons far outside our control.”

– Walter Cronkite


“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions.  Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure–one world, if you will.  If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

David Rockefeller, Memoirs (2002)


“No one ever heard of the truth being enforced by law. Whenever the secular arm is called in to sustain an idea, whether new or old, it is always a bad idea, and not infrequently it is downright idiotic.”

– H.L. Mencken


Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness.  A genuinely unfashionable opinion is almost never given a fair hearing.”

– George Orwell


“Thought control, like birth control, is best undertaken as long as possible before the fact.”

– Richard Mitchell


“During a war, news should be given out for instruction rather than information.”

– Joseph Goebbels


“Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free our minds.”

– Bob Marley
