MK-ULTRA

Google it for yourself...

I've just reminded myself of this, and thought it appropriate to remind everybody else of what the pharmaceutical industry was, and most probably still is. "Grotesque" is the word that springs to mind, most readily. Remember this, Eli: nobody's so big that they can avoid a fall. And the Shrubs aren't in the White House, anymore, so who's going to protect you, now?

I don't know why I'm so overwhelmed after reading the Wikipedia on the mk-ultra.
I'm really appalled.
I know CIA has done many of this things such as starting giving marijuana to the Black Panthers so that the group could loose their unity.
But a project like this...

I know: pathetic, isn't it? Rather than address the issues that people have raised, they seek to destablilize, such that those people may be ignored, or discredited - it's a recurring theme. They assume that there's a threat, rather than checking thoroughly to establish if that assumption is true.

That's why we're a real problem for them, because, unlike an organization such as the Black Panthers, we don't need that type of group identity to function. We're a group of individuals with strong moral codes and no small intellect, each capable of asking massively embarassing questions, but no more than that, because we're all peaceful people.

The CIA has its fair share of psychopaths - people who have lost the ability to make judgments for themselves and who just follow the orders of those above them (superiors who are either twisted, or who have an incomplete understanding of what's actually being done). But they're only people, individuals, like us, and it soon becomes apparent that although they're joined together under the banner of a single organization, there is no unity - they are held together by fear and ignorance, which is never a strong bond. Meanwhile, we cannot be broken apart, because we were never joined together - not in the sense that they understand, anyway (the way we rallied around Fidders when he was attacked by GSK's lawyers must have terrified them, seeing as they're not familiar with the concept of "friendship"!).

You're right.
I never realized that the fact of not being a "group" is better.
Friendship!
This is more than any group under a name.

Pharma have been doing it for years. Best part about it is they get the thumbs up from regulators and when people complain of adverse reactions, they join forces and label people 'Vexatious' or 'loose cannons'.

It is their only recourse because they are insecure. A walking, talking, bully.

Fidders: Well, this is the thing, isn't it? They have nothing of any interest to say to us, and so it's impossible for us to have anything of any interest to say to them. As such, we have carte blanche to develop bespoke solutions that actually work for us, I reckon.
