The Founders of the Psychedelic Movement were CIA agents

I found this interesting.  Only 13 minutes.  Claims some of the early research into psychedelic drugs as a cultural experiment.

they also famously dosed some guy who jumped out of a window , I think they wanted a "mind control" drug.
this stuff was widely disseminated in the seventies/eighties ... Carter released a lot of classified material ( iirc )
Politicians and bureaucrats are considered productive if they swarm the populace like a plague of locust, devouring all substance in their path and leaving a swath of destruction like a firestorm. The technical term is "bipartisanship".

The CIA had a program called MKUltra that started in the 50's that used a lot of different experiments, including psychedelics, for interrogation and other things.

I will go watch the video when I have time.

I was thinking about the book Brave New World where everyone was kept happy and shallow and encouraged to get drugged up anytime they didn't feel good.  Amounts to the same thing I guess.

IIRC the CIA admitted to having a "heart attack" gun in the 1970s. Fires a small ice projectile filled with some toxin that essentially mimics a heart attack.

Now they just sneak a nude photo of Pelosi onto the poor unsuspecting victim's computer. Has the same effect with a higher success rate. Even in the rare cases it fails to produced a heart attack a suicide usually follows.

"You see me now, a veteran of a thousand psychic wars
I've been livin' on the edge so long where the winds of limbo roar
And I'm young enough to look at and far too old to see
All the scars are on the inside
I'm not sure that there's anything left to me (Me)"

Seems to be working on Biden at least some of the time.
