When the U.S. Senator John Glenn in 1994 began an investigation into the brain experiments with unwitting people, he said:
As a result of this hearing, and others to follow if necessary, I hope to be able to assure the people in my home state of Ohio, and those around the country, that their government is no longer conducting experiments unknown to the individual.
That experimentation was not limited only to the United States and had neither begun in the 1990s. Seventeen years earlier, The New York Times editorial, Control C.I.A. Not Behavior, demanded an end to the U.S. brain experiments and wrote:
So we must add repugnant medical experimentation to the list of horror stories emerging from the Central Intelligence Agency… The original motive was to develop a defense against the presumed mind control expertise of the Russians and Chinese, but the program soon took on offensive characteristics. One objective, for example, was to program individuals so that they might do the agency’s bidding even to the point of ignoring such fundamental laws of nature as self-preservation. We are not sufficiently schooled in ethics to know how this differs from murder. No one seems to know how many citizens were used as guinea pigs and how many were directly harmed.
During the summer of 1977 they published 30 articles about the C.I.A.’s mind control projects and the editorial demanded prosecution of these in charge and compensation to the exploited people. This was one of many great challenges The New York Times introduced against the U.S. state’s most top-secret program, as released C.I.A. documents indicated. Some of the previous articles had revealed that people in prisons and mental hospitals were abused. Already 1967, The New York Times had its first editorial of the subject, Push Button People and wrote:
It is quite conceivable that in some countries investigations may be under way into the possibility of using these techniques to control human beings… The mere existence of such a possibility is disturbing, and certainly merits wider public discussion and greater attention than it has received up to now.
In both Sweden and the United States, brain experiments with ignorant people were widespread already in the 1960s. This article will show my own experiences on how, where and by what methods brain experiments are done and will give a picture of both Swedish and U.S. projects, established behind secret services and military institutions.
The same year that I became a victim of the institutional abuse, the government had opened up their eyes to the subject. The Swedish State Investigation, SOU 1972: 47 wrote:
It will deliver far too much power to the authorities and increase their capacity to control the behavior of individuals… In the extension of information processing the contours of an unassailable police state with an absolutely efficient organization can be seen, inhuman in its consequences…
Only one month later, the next government investigation related to mind control was published. It was SOU 1972:59 with the subtitle Choosing the future by Alva Myrdal, appointed of Prime Minister Olof Palme, as the sole investigator. She wrote of an imminent future:
Research in the field of brain function and behavior aimed primarily at clarifying the nature and degree of changes that can be achieved as well as new risks of control and modification of behavior against people’s will… Undoubtedly, the protection of the individual against the abuse of these methods in today’s society is insufficient.
The abuse had been established by the technology of two-way radio communication with the brain and developed behind military secrecy. It was the Swedish Military Research Institution, FOI, which took over as they had the supercomputers, and from the early times, in the end of the 1940s, built up data banks, collected the know-how, selected and taught the Professors and initiated the principles for the use of the new technology of cybernetics. That which FOI now call for human-system interaction.
(All quotes from Swedish State Investigations and U.S. politicians are possible to read in more extensive texts in the report Documents (150 pages). The same is for all the references of New York Times articles, as can be read in The New York Times Source material of 150 pages, including, their 100 best articles of the issue. The citations of medical and scientific articles can be read in more broad versions in Frankenstein (ca. 170 pages) and all examples from book titles can be seen in the compilation of the 33 best books of the subject, entitled The Brain Wall, ca. 200 pages.) <…>
