Editor's Note:

The following is an exchange between Alex Constantine, author of
_Psychic Dictatorship in the USA_, and J.S., a correspondent. The
discussion contains excerpts from Constantine's upcoming book,
_Virtual Government: CIA Mind Control Operations in America_.



By Alex Constantine

January 1997


J.S.: Alex, do you have any information concerning Dr. Louis
Jolyon West, Margaret Singer and CIA connections?

A.C.: From _Virtual Government_:

"CIA observers everywhere choked when CNN announced that a
psychological trauma team, mustered by the American Psychological
Association, would converge in Oklahoma City to treat survivors
of the explosion and the victims' families -- led by none other
than Dr. Louis Jolyon West of UCLA's Neuropsychiatric Institute,
the breeding ground of some of the most necrotizing Dr.
Strangeloves in the mind-control business. Alumni emeritus of the
Institute include Dr. Ross Adey, a former NASA brain scientist
with much experience working alongside Nazi doctors who resettled
in the U.S. after the war....

"Dr. West is a sinister creation of the Agency's mind-control
fraternity. Among other totalitarian projects, he has studied the
use of drugs as "adjuncts to interpersonal manipulation or
assault," and employed pioneers in the field of remote electronic
brain experimentation at UCLA.

"West has recommended to federal officials that drugs be used to
control "bothersome" political segments of the population:

"'This method, foreseen by Aldous Huxley [in Brave New World
(1932)], has the governing element employing drugs selectively to
manipulate the governed in various ways. In fact, it may be more
convenient and perhaps even more economical to keep the growing
numbers of chronic drug users (especially of the hallucinogens)
fairly isolated and also out of the labor market, with its
millions of unemployed.

"'To society, the communards with their hallucinogenic drugs are
probably less bothersome -- and less expensive -- if they are
living apart than if they are engaging in alternative modes of
expressing their alienation, such as active, organized, vigorous
political protest and dissent.'"

Another cite concerning the signally fascistic Dr. West:

"In 'Pseudo-Identity and the Treatment of Personality Change in
Victims of Captivity and Cults' (1994), Dr. Louis 'Jolly' West
examines the creation of "changelings," or dissociative
personalities that enable the subject of mind-control
conditioning to adapt to trauma. 'Prolonged environmental
stress,' UCLA's own ranking CIA mind-control specialist observed
(in a drastic departure from the public stance of the False
Memory Syndrome Foundation, an organization he formerly directed
as an advisory board member, on multiplicity), 'or life
situations profoundly different from the usual, can disrupt the
normally integrative functions of personality. Individuals
subjected to such forces may adapt through dissociation by
generating an altered persona, or pseudo-identity.'

"Patricia Hearst (examined by Dr. West for trial) hosted an
alternate personality named 'Pearl,' he offers, a manifestation
more distinct and individuated than 'Tania.' The newspaper
heiress was subjected to a regimen of 'persuasive coercion' (a
very personal form of harassment by an organized group, any form
of intimidation short of violence) and trauma-induced programmimg
(of a sort developed by CIA specialists like Dr. West) -
'violently abducted by members of the [CIA-mustered] Symbionese
Liberation Army in February of 1974, brutalized, raped, tortured,
and forced to participate in illegal acts beginning with the bank
robbery for which she was later (in our view wrongly) convicted.
The traumatic kidnapping and subsequent 2 months of torture
produced in her a state of emotional regression and fearful
compliance with the demands and expectations of her captors. This
was quickly followed by the coerced transformation of Patty into
Tania and subsequently (less well known to the public) into
Pearl, after additional trauma over a period of many months
(Hearst & Moscow, 1988; The Trial of Patty Hearst, 1976). Tania
was merely a role coerced on pain of death; it was Pearl who
later represented the pseudo-identity which was found on
psychiatric examination by one of us (West) shortly after
Hearst's arrest by the FBI. Chronic symptoms of PTSD were also
prominent in this case.'"

J.S.: At the ISSD conference, the keynote speaker, Stephen
Marmer, began his terrible talk with references to his mentors at
UCLA. One of them was West. Then another person I know mentioned
knowing Margaret Singer, and thinks she "doesn't understand the
basis of mind control very well."

A.C.: She understands it with Panavision clarity. Singer, who
worked with Jolly at the community-based Haight-Ashbury LSD
culture lab, hails from the Fund for Human Ecology days when she
worked on CIA "brainwashing" projects with Robert Jay Lifton,
another "scholar," the author of _The Nazi Doctors_, which is
short on names and long on the study of converting medical
professionals into Nazi sadists. She has also been on the board
of the American Family Foundation (AFF), another appendage of the
CFF, a particularly oily, very "right-wing" CIA dummy front.
Singer has been involved with the Theological Seminary in
Berkeley; the university is the home of much mind-control chaos
in California, ala Jim Jones.

J.S.: I had heard that she understands all too well, but from
the wrong side. Anyway, I'm trying to sort out the truth from the
rumor mill, which is quite a daunting task. Also, what do you
know about the origins of Cult Awareness Network?

A.C.: CAN was as vile a coalition of mind-control types as you
will find this side of the False Memory Syndrome Foundation. The
Cult Awareness Network was founded in 1974, incorporated under
the name Citizens Freedom Foundation (CFF). The CFF officially
changed its name to CAN in 1986.

CAN's founder was Ted Patrick, a known crony of the sinister
Ronald Reagan. The CAN network was run for a spell by Patricia
Ryan, the daughter of Leo Ryan, a cruel irony considering the
central role of the CIA in the Jones cult's formation and
grotesque human ruins. Patrick was a three-time felon.

Cult "investigator" Steve Hassan, the national coordinator of
FOCUS, a CAN affiliate group, is still an active spin doctor and
"deprogrammer." You can find him on the Web.

In West Virginia, CAN leader John Overington, a state legislator,
was an advocate of Oliver North and the Iran-Contra crowd. (He
also sponsored a bill that would force all X-rated peep-show
parlors to install bathrooms.) CAN president Rev. Michael Rokos
was forced to step down after it leaked out that he'd been
arrested for soliciting young male prostitutes. The arrest
report, filed by police cadet Joseph Wyatt, 22, working
undercover at the time of the arrest, mentions that Rokos told
the officer, "I want you to go home with me. I want you to tie me
up, put clothes pins on my nipples and make me suck your d**k."

CAN Doctors West and Singer were both feted by the Cult Awareness
Network when it was a going concern, a spin-off of the CFF, a
known CIA appendage. Singer and CAN exploited the Branch Davidian
stand-off in Waco to promote an alternate history of cult
activity, one that excluded discussion of the intelligence
services and the federal mind-control initiative. After the
conflagration in Waco, Dr. West told reporters that the FBI's
handling of the crisis was "terrific, outstanding."

Cynthia Kisser, the executive director of CAN, was once a topless
dancer and defended pedophiles in Omaha, Nebraska. That was about
the caliber of the organization's leadership. Over in CAN's
security division, you found Larry Kahaner, a private
investigator in Alexandria, Virginia, and Galen Kelley, who was
close with the FBI, and once boasted that one of his
responsibilities was to keep CAN members "in line."

J.S.: Do you think the takeover by Scientology was orchestrated,
or a coincidence after the loss of the lawsuit?

A.C.: Certainly no coincidence on the part of Scientology. The
church has long agitated against CAN and ostensibly ran the
organization into the hole. But I think CAN members had to bail
out because they were becoming notorious. Their reputations were
catching up with them, and cult victims weren't buying the BS at
CAN's end of the false dialectic designed to distract us from the
fact that many cults and anti-cult cults are ultimately the
creation of the intelligence sector.
