The principles and techniques of scientific brainwashing closely parallel the manipulations that take place in
many families. Pavlov and the other scientists who "invented" brainwashing early in this century learned much about their subject by observing, refining, and systemizing the cruelties that take place all too often in the family.
Why should I teach you to manipulate other peoples’ minds when it is so blatantly immoral and dangerous? The reason is that if I can expose the process, you will be in a position to disarm the next person who tries it out on you. The privileged information you are about to learn has been known and used by dictators, tyrants, bullies, and sociopaths
for thousands of years. But ordinary citizens have been kept in the dark.
Interested? You bet you are! Want to know the secret of bending people to your will? Who
doesn’t! But be warned concerning the dangers of this supreme folly before you enter the game of power.
Principle number one: Before you can dominate others
you must become a victim yourself. Most likely you already fulfill that requirement. Try to understand, it would be impossible for anyone worthy of the name of "human" to call up within himself the ruthless wickedness he would need in order to destroy another
person for the fun, power, and glory of it. The necessary ruthlessness would have to have been implanted in him from some outside source—by the one who destroyed his original innocence. Only the extremely ambitious ones among us, those sociopaths willing
to trade their souls for power, possess that necessary ruthlessness. And once they set out to gain more and more power, they will feel called upon to become more and more ruthless, because power, to the unprincipled, is addicting.
No ordinary person can originate wickedness—or goodness, for that matter. Both qualities project through us from an overriding source. If you are conscious of the presence of a dark spirit
within yourself, it is because some long-forgotten trauma caused you to lose control of your psyche and let the intruder in. And once the nature of the intruder has been implanted in you, it robs you of your former identity, and lives through you as though
it were the real you. Under its control, you find yourself bullying the weak and doing unto others all the nasty little things that were done unto you. It awakens in you a hunger to control and violate others, and once you taste the fruits of power, you start
to forget that you have been victimized. You get caught up in the excitement of the wicked implanted knowledge you acquire through your trauma experience. And once you have been violated and imprinted with "carnal knowledge," you find validation for your power
trip in the enslavement of others.
Whoever invented "vampires" was a good student of human vulnerability because the process I am describing is analogous to the
vampire mystique in every detail. When you are bitten, you give up your life’s blood to the vampire. Eventually, you die and come back to life—not as a person, but as a vampire. You become what violated you. You are imprinted with the vampire’s
identity, nature, and personality. You thirst for power, and you know by your new instinct how to get it. Take care, though, for knowledge of such things that you can get from books will be worthless to you. The soul has to be made compatible with such knowledge.
It has to bare its neck to the bite of the evil vampire and accept its venom throughout its being, exchanging whatever bonding it formerly enjoyed with its Creator for the evil knowledge of how to gain power through the enslavement of others.
The way to power has always involved a military-style chain of command. The more powerless you are before those you hate, the more powerful you become over those who hate you.
You might call it the law of the human predator. If you have thus embraced, and become compatible with, dominant evil knowledge, you may be sure it was because of a violation, a seed of trauma that was planted in you early in your childhood. While you were
powerless in the world of adults, all you could do was keep the seed watered and fed with your smoldering resentment. By the time you reached puberty, it came to full flower.
The human soul is not born compatible with a thirst for power, and no amount of textbook training in the art of gaining it will succeed in getting the knowledge to "stick." The soul will simply be unable to effectively activate such knowledge until
it has been seduced from its original innocence. Conversely, of course, the soul that hungers for truth will reach out intuitively, and take into itself, the kind of instruction that will lead to his becoming a power for good. If you ever had to take a course
in school that was of absolutely no interest to you, you know how impossible it is to be receptive to anything with which you are not fundamentally compatible.
most of us were robbed of our innocence early on. Consequently, we do unto others what was done unto us, until something or someone comes along to wake us to the danger of continuing on the downward path. In a very real sense, "innocence" is related to "common
sense," in that both terms describe a position of poise and impersonal objectivity, devoid of preconceived bias, ready to assess the right way to go by some inner light. And oh, how the body snatchers hate and feel threatened by innocent people with common
Your innocence (patience) and common sense are your only defense against those who glory in putting you down and gaining some
kind of power over your mind. Body snatched persons, turned into body snatchers, are all terribly insecure. They compensate for their feeling of powerlessness by terrorizing others and throwing them out of control. They have been separated from their original
goodness and de-humanized, compelled to live out a slave/tyrant relationship that was established in them by a now-forgotten violator. They kiss the feet of those who continue to forge their chains. And, strong before the weak, they live by a comparative system
of values. The only faith they know is the smug satisfaction they feel when they succeed in upsetting and thus casting doubt into the faith of others.
rule: Trauma introduces into the victim a "beast" identity that evolves through submission to its "creator." The victim is now addicted to being violated in order to complete the evolution of the implanted self that he now accepts as his own. He will even
submit to torture and cruelty in the name of "love," because any perfected and overblown emotional reaction is the very breath of life to that identity, completing his implanted predatory nature.
If this all sounds too heavy and gruesome to be true, just ask yourself: Where does all the cruelty, insanity, and man’s inhumanity to man come from; and exactly how is it passed on from generation to generation?
In order to dominate and enslave others, you must learn to "live" off of their dying and suffering, and to revel in degrading them for "kicks" and the sheer fun of exercising
and absorbing power. Do you remember who did it to you?
Still interested in gaining power?
Your personal manipulator is probably laughing up his sleeve over your weakness, but you may never know it. Who wants to see that he has been degraded and controlled? It’s reviving and much more fun to suck up the blood of your
own victim, so that’s what you unconsciously do. Your absorption in "gorging" on the life substance of your own victims decreases your awareness of the presence that has overshadowed you. You see, don’t you, how "power" corrupts, and why it is
so addicting. The more power you crave, the more ruthless you have to become in its pursuit. If you were to let up, even for a minute, you might be forced to see your own cowering allegiance to the life-sucking evil that has overpowered you.
You are therefore compelled to keep adding to your victims and rising in the predatory chain of command, thinking that you are on the way to heaven—until
you wake up in hell.
Do you still want the secret of power? Even now that you know the kind of person you will have to become?
Very well, let me show you the initiating principle. First, you will have to separate your victim's soul from the common sense that once bonded him to his Creator by means of
some tease. This can be the tease of "love" that will spoil him and give him an exaggerated opinion of his own worth, or the tease of hate and rejection that will make him angry and rebellious.

There are two basic principles, one extending from the other, of seducing
a soul from loyalty to the self it was born with. The first is a kind of "original sin" appeal to the ego, a seduction by means of suggestion/deception. You can cause a person to partake of some for-bidden experience by suggesting that it will provide him
with an exalted state: power, glory, and riches, something that it cannot possibly deliver. You simply stroke your victim into believing that he can have what he selfishly wants to have, and be what he wants to be, without exerting any effort. All he has to
do is believe and do as you say. This appeal is hypnotic in its effect because the deception sounds so reasonable to the ego that it allows the soul to bypass the alarm system that would ordinarily operate to keep it within the bounds of conscience. An example
I often use concerns the boy whose dad has forbidden him to ride his bicycle. Along comes a friend who uses some challenge to the boy’s ego, like a dare or a taunt, to make him override his dad’s instructions and pedal off on his bike. This could
be the lad’s first experience with “forbidden fruit.”
Once you experience the forbidden, the original hypnotic influence contained in the persuasion
or deceit will alter your nature at the core, and you will become a creature of conditioning, subject to the presence of the person who seduced you. This second state is more powerful than hypnosis alone: it is animal magnetism. His very presence will become
irresistible, and his authority beyond question. He will render you choiceless, compulsive.
As a result, you fall under a compulsion to go along with your tempter
under the influence of two forces: first, your vulnerability to suggestion, and second, your compulsion to respond to the animal presence of your violator. This phenomenon can be seen clearly in such extreme examples as the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, whose followers
would faint or go into hypnotic ecstasy when their guru would drive past them in one of his Rolls Royces.
The first appeal to your ego might have been resistible,
nothing more than a deceptive suggestion on the part of a subtle tempter who was scanning your psyche to search out its soft spot—a secret desire for power, or a rebellious insecurity already implanted in you by a violating parent. All manipulators know
that our emotion-fueled inclination to rebel or to conform makes us gullible and easily led. The seed of resentment-based helplessness seeking power may lie dormant for many years, but when someone comes along who knows how to appeal to that insecurity, our
desire to “be somebody,” he can bring it to maturity fast.
The first fall from innocence was inspired by a kind of hypnotic/psychological suggestion,
and you might have recovered from it if you had not gone along and fallen to animal magnetism. Be assured that the enslaved state you are living in is the result of something far more insidious than an automatic, reflexive conditioning process. It goes much
deeper than that. It is an emotional bonding that grows more intense through all forms of excitement, especially love/hate or hate/love relationships.
The physical presence you have fallen to has literally displaced the God-presence to which you were once bonded. He is now your god, and his degrading, lying presence is vital to your survival, because once your innocence has been corrupted,
your violated pride needs all the help it can get to deny the truth of its degradation. Now, you look to your corrupter for the reassurance you needed to counteract the embarrassment and humiliation you would feel in the presence of conscience. Again, the
Rajneesh example is a classic one. First he would seduce his followers to degrade themselves by having indiscriminate promiscuous sex with many people, while telling them this was a holy activity. Then, in order for the now-corrupted followers to maintain
their self-image as spiritual and not debased beings, they had to cling to the Bhagwan even more closely for his lying reassurances.
You have been misled and deceived
by the seducer who still has complete control over you, even if he is no longer alive, and you will defend your slavish allegiance under the banner of "love" and "loyalty," and violate your "loved" ones. Falling to suggestion and taking on another god is a
little like crossing over to East Germany from West Germany. At first, you might realize how foolish you were to come under the influence of a repressive, dictatorial system; but soon you will feel too guilty to come back to face your friends on the democratic
side. In your confused state, you will be a juicy morsel for those who are skilled in the vile arts of emotional intimidation and mind control. You will soon be separated, not only from the democratic order of this world, but also from the internal hierarchy
of conscience. You become psychologically and emotionally connected to the intimidating, predatory order of the "communist" beast. If you do happen to wake up to the folly of your defection, you’re stuck. What can you do?
The one thing you should not do is the very thing your captors expect you to do, and unless you are wise, it’s the very thing you will do: You will become upset. Who knows better than the mind
control expert that every proud ego comes equipped with a fatal flaw: an automatic, compulsive, resentful reaction to the slightest challenge to its "godship." If you are proud, you have been resenting, taking umbrage, hating—call it what you will—all
your life. You look on it as your first line of defense against the enemy, but all it does is deliver you into his hands and seal your fate.
While you are resentfully
churning about in your emotional stew, you become an easy prey to the kind of negative suggestion that gives power to the enemy. He can inject all kinds of bizarre notions into your emotionally gullible mind. Resentment makes you doubt what is left of your
ability to reason. So you respond to the enemy’s suggestions and follow his line of reasoning. And as he gradually takes the life, and fight, out of you with his "good-guy, bad-guy" routines and additional rites of initiation, a bonding takes place between
the two of you. In this condition, it is hard to be cured of your emotional fondness for rage and resentment. You will turn around and "take it out" on your former allies and your own value systems.
So pay attention the next time you see yourself getting upset. You will begin to doubt yourself. You will feel guilty, and the guilt will make you angrier, and the anger will make you feel guiltier. You may very well have been
right in your original appraisal of the person who upset you—he might have been intimidating you to get his own way—but you are so upset that you begin to doubt your own thought processes. For this, you feel guilty; and for this, you are guilty.
By allowing yourself to get upset, you have betrayed the faith that once bonded you to "what you know to be right" in your heart.
So there you have it. The secret
of resisting mind control and undoing your programming lies in your not becoming intimidated by pressure and challenge. You must practice forgiving and letting go of resentment and rage—repenting of the ego weakness that has made you vulnerable. In short,
stop blaming others. Take a few minutes to look at your own fault. Your critic may have a good point, after all, and you might find it helpful.
Only faith and patience
can separate you from the enemy’s power play. The manipulator is under a compulsion to preserve his system of faith and power by robbing you of yours, and he does this by getting you to react emotionally (resent) and sink into self-doubt. Patience is
the evidence that you have been humbled and learned the lesson of pride. It takes the wind out of the enemy's sails, and your calm poise will strike terror in his heart. When you learn not to respond emotionally to others, you may be sure that they will respond
to you, and the degree to which they are "touched" by your composure will determine how much of your faith and agenda for good will pierce their souls to confound their wicked plans and motives.
In essence, the game of power, of who dictates and who follows, is a contest of faiths. The more faith you have in your own principles, which you demonstrate by your patient (non-resentful) unflinching poise, the more likely
your adversary will be to start doubting his own. The more he tries to upset you into doubting yourself, and the more you answer him with unemotional patience, the more likely he will see how much he has degraded himself on the road to power.
Do not resent evil. Overcome it with good, for resentment only separates you from the good that might have overcome the evil. The adversary will be forced to recognize the authority
and power of good when he sees it penetrating him through your patience. What he will see is pure love, for patience is its expression, and through it, he will experience the ultimate presence. The persecutor will feel persecuted, and you will not have laid
a hand on him. He might feel like the person who has just told a bad joke—and nobody is laughing.
The beauty of a patient, non-emotional response to pressure
is that you gain power without ever having to do anything cruel to get it. The manipulator responds, while you remain calm and innocent. You can watch the adversary sting himself to death, or see him surrender to the good and change his life for the better.
Even though you might have started out as the victim, isolated and controlled by a manipulator in possession of all the physical advantages, you can free yourself and take command of the situation simply by availing yourself of the true spirit of love. You
can prevail over your adversary in the same way that Joseph prevailed over Pharaoh.
Therefore, my friend, seek humility rather than
power. Hold fast to your faith in what you know in your heart to be right. Put what is good and just before any gain or physical advantage. Then your non-response to the pressure of the tyrant, your calm patience, comes across as a pressure to him because
he doesn't know how to deal with it. He is used to pushing buttons and getting answers (like a microwave oven) and there you stand, with no buttons to push!
