Je, that’s a fascinating notion–I’m going to ask around and keep my eyes open for reports from zapper users about that possible effect, thanks.
John, thanks for the provocative article–I think it’s good ammo for going after the foundation of the present international drug culture. Not long ago, a lot of people who were adolescent in the 60s would have drawn and quartered you for suggesting that those years were marked mainly by covert CIA/MI6 manipulation.
I hadn’t ever considered that LSD was being propagated to disable the anti-war movement but it seems possible or likely, considering how another massive federal campaign to discredit the new constitutional militias with a false flag attack on the Fed Bldg in OK City backfired on the feds.
The antiwar movement was clearly run from the left, which is to say London’s left wing effort, helped from Russia and China. I say that because I personally knew an agitator at the University of Kansas in 1967 who dealt out posters of Mao, Ho Chi Minh and Che Guevarra, along with a lot of free pot, etc. I never saw him study and I doubt he attended classes but he had a room near mine in the dormitory. I remember that he did help organize an anti-war demonstration on campus, though, then he was gone (certainly not arrested). He arrived, with some panache, at school on a motorcycle in September from parts unknown. Bill Clinton dropped out of Oxford (Cambridge?) when he was a Rhodes scholar about the same time and went to Moscow to schmooze Breshnev, then returned to the US to work in the campus anti-war movement.
Most of how I see that subject is based on reading books, personal acquaintances and noticing interesting stuff in the news. I can take all that, along with $4, and get a cafe lattÃ© but I hope it adds something to this thread, at least. Reading books, alone, doesn’t really cause us to know anything. Life outside of reading books is probably a richer source of potential certitude.
Sometimes, the only evidence available is circumstantial but the less ideological research journalists will lay it all out when they can. I’m only a book reader; not a scholar or a research journalist.
LaRouche started Students for a Democratic Society when he was an instructor at Northeastern University in the early 1960s. He reports that he was pretty disgusted when this organization turned communist a few years later. He also presented a lot of evidence that the anti-war movement of the period because the environmental movement immediately after the US lost the Vietnam War. Same people; same sort of blind ideological drive. The anti war people never looked deeper than the goverment for the real instigators of that war, for instance, and the environtmentalists studiously ignore the glaring fact that the corporations they’re opposed to are paying their leaders’ salaries. I mean the Rockefeller/Mellon/Etc-sponsored environmentalist organizations, of course, which later spawed the Global Warming haox.
It’s holpful in a debate when we can get a broader view, I think. Debates, at least on this forum, are not ‘winner/loser’ exercises but our attempt to uncover the truth. As it’s been said,‘The spark of truth is sometimes generated by the clash of differing opinions.’
