The Tavistock Clinic in Sussex, England is the world's center for mass brainwashing and social engineering programs and activities in the postwar period. During the war Tavistock was the headquarters of the British Army's Psychological Warfare Bureau which, through the arrangements of the Special Operations Executive also dictated policy to the United States Armed Forces in matters of pshycological warfare. At the end of the war, the Tavistock personnel took over the World Federation of Mental Health and the Psychological Warfare Division at the Supreme Headquarters, Allied ExpeditIOnary Force (SHAEF) in Europe.
Tavistock's chief theoretician in America, Dr. Kurt Lewin, organized the Harvard Psychological Clinic, the MIT Research Center for Group Dynamics, the Institute of Social Research at the University of Michigan; Lewin also played a pivotal policy role at the psychological department of the OSS, at the Office of Naval Research, the Strategic Bombing Survey and the Committee on National Morale. Morevoer, a large number of influential people at the top policy level were trained in Dr. Lewin's theory of Topological Psychology, which is to this day, the world's most advanced method of behavior modification (brainwashing).
Other important colleagues of Kurt Lewin, such as Eric Trist and John Rawlings Rees of Tavistock, as well as H.V. Dicks, W.R. Bion, R. Crossman and others, took all the personnel from the Strategic Bombing Survey, the Committee of National Morale and others, and from this pool, founded the Rand Corporation, the Stanford Research Institute (which produced the Aquarian Conspiracy), the Wharton School, the National Training Laboratories, the National Institute of Mental Health and others. The United States government started contracting multimillion dollar projects with all these outfits. Over a period of thirty years, tens of billions of dollars have been allocated by the federal government to fund the work of these groups; other tens of billions of dollars found their way into these institutions from private foundations. Over the years, these outfits grew and the scope of projects they contracted grew.
Every aspect of the mental and psychological life of the American people was profiled, recorded and stored into computer memories. The personnel of these centers of social psychology grew massively in numbers and year after year it penetrated deeply into every nook and cranny of federal, state and local governments. Their inhouse specialists and graduates were called in to develop policies for welfare departments, labor mediation boards, trade unions, the Air Force, the Navy, the Army, the National Education Association, psychiatric clinics, the works.
Over the years, close cooperative relations were developed between these think-tanks and the key polling organizations in the country, and between them and the major media. Gallup Polls, the Yankelovich-CBS-New York Times polls, the National Opinion Research Center and others are incessantly conducting psychological profiles of the entire population and share them for evaluation and processing with the ubiquitous social psychologists. What the public sees printed in the newspapers as opinion polls is only an infinitesimal portion of the work that the pollsters really do.
Above this closely cooperating grouping of social psychologists, pollsters and media manipulators, presides the elite of "powerful patrons" the "gods of Olympus" as they delight in being referred to. These are a cluster of corporations and families on top of the electronics, communications and related sophisticated-technology industries. The core cluster consists of the following: ITT, ATT, Xerox, Rank Organization, Bendix, Raetheon, A.D. Little, Eagle Star Group, RCA, Bechtel, Textron, Reliance Group, Prudential Insurance, American Express, Lazard Brothers, Kuhn Loeb, Blythe-Eastman-Dillon (now owned by Paine-Webber), Petro-Canada, Standard Telephones and Cables, and their subsidiary, affiliated and interlocking corporations.
All in all, it is estimated that this group, which on matters of long-term strategy tends to act in a very disciplined and unified way, commands over sixty of the top "Fortune 500" companies in the USA. It has swallowed up all the other, older historical "power groups" of earlier U.S. history, such as Morgan, Rockefeller, Cabot-Lodge, etc., etc.
In the deeper recesses of the intelligence establishment in Washington, veteran intelligence officers refer to this awsome group in hushed tones and mysterious language as the "Committee of Three Hundred." The group prefers to be called "The Olympus." These are the real power in the land, the deployers of our social engineers and social psychologists. (more...)
