Dr. Ross' book is a very interesting work. Ross is one of the
nation's experts on Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD), and has been
one of the few to speak out about the controversial subject of CIA
mind control experiments and their relation to the intentional
creation of MPD (now known as Dissociative Identity Disorder, or
DID)..... In this book, he constructs a solid documentary record, not
only of the existence of those CIA projects from the 1940's through at
least the 1970's, if not even through the present, but of the
connections between the CIA funding and various persons in medicine
and academia, and he makes quietly understated, but, again, solid,
conclusions about the nature, purpose, and morality of these
experiments. In short, he "proves that there was extensive
political abuse of psychiatry ... by leading psychiatrists,
psychologists, pharmacologists, neurosurgeons and medical
schools." In this respect, Dr. Ross' book is phenomenal. What I
find disturbing, however, is Ross' rationalization of the CIA's
funding of these projects. He says that "the CIA is not governed
by the Hippocratic Oath," (what about the Constitution?) and that
the creation of "Manchurian Candidates," (mind controlled
spies and assassins) which was at the root of the CIA projects in
question, is "easy to understand and justify from a National
Security perspective.

Land of the free, and home of the brave? After this last election, do you still think we live in a Democracy where government is run with the consent of the governed? Read this book and you will see just how far back Amerikan fascism's roots are seeded. As touched on in my review of the book Acid Dreams, Colin Ross goes deeper and into the legitimate documentation of experiments by doctors, via Paperclip and other organizational efforts, to create mind controlled Manchurian candidates in this country. Just taking a cursory walk through history in the past 30 years will show you how much things have changed. We wonder why. Just the way things are? Overpopulation? Why is it that we have mass murderers in the high schools in our midst? Ross does not allude to these incidences, but he does take a good hard look at Patty Hearst, Sirhan Sirhan and Mark David Chapman utilizing FOIA documentation that certainly makes *me* take a good look at the ongoing insanity in our current day. These things did and do continue to happen. Riveting is the history of Linda MacDonald, a "patient" of Dr. Ewen Cameron at the Allain Memorial Institute in Canada, whose mind was entirely wiped out by LSD and electroshock and then re-wired with taped loops run under her pillow over and over and over as she "slept." She emerged an emotional "infant," who had to invent all over again who she was. This was his "treatment" for what we know today as post-partum depression. You can learn more about this case in the Mind Control video available through the History channel. Ewen Cameron, by the way, was the psychiatrist that "counseled" the Nazi prisoners at the Nuremburg trials. His work was not limited to Canada, either.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
Colin Ross, M.D., a well-established psychiatrist and researcher in the field of dissociative disorders, has put together a collection of evidence showing how psychiatry has been hijacked by government military and mind control agendas. This book is primarily just a review of government programs and documents, providing irrefutable evidence of how psychiatric professionals worked with government sponsored programs to fragment people's minds, using a variety of techniques, such as drugs, torture, electronics and electroshock, hypnosis, food & sleep deprivation, and sensory deprivation. This information is not pleasant or entertaining to read unless one happens to be a sadist. However, it is useful for clinicians and patients to have an understanding of how dissociation has been deliberately created, providing insights into how the resulting conditions may be effectively healed. This book would also be of interest to historical researchers, especially those who seek to examine covert agendas and conspiratorial activity. Ross specifically states that this book is not about any conspiracy theory or critique of government agencies and their motives, while he does express his intent to expose psychiatric professionals involved in mind control for their breach of professional oaths and ethics. This aspect of the text is somewhat disappointing, as Ross defends the CIA and other government operations for their exploration of mind control to serve national "security" and "defense" interests. If psychiatrists are acting in a contemptible manner by abusing their clients and manipulating patients' minds against their will, then why should CIA or military personnel be excused for pursuing those agendas just because they don't have a professional guideline opposed to such activities?Read more ›
