American Samizdat

How long ago was Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind in theaters, further how many here saw it?

I linked a post not to long ago about the military trying to create killing machine super solders with no conscience, genetically and otherwise, well, perhaps the implications here are the 'otherwise'

60 Minutes did a segment on Propranolol. What are the implications here, both for common/elite abuse of the drug, and/or genuine help for victims of trauma, Can I run off and say that this is all under the design and control of the Military-Intelligence-Pharma industry and does not bode well?

The Memory Pill

If you experienced a painful or traumatic event, would you want a pill which could lessen the bad memories of what happened? That option might soon be here because of a drug called propranolol.


If there were a pill you could take after experiencing a painful or traumatic event that would permanently weaken your memory of what had just happened, would you take it?

An ongoing study suggests it's a choice that may not be so far off. The drug is called propranolol and it's already used to treat high blood pressure. As Lesley Stahl reports, the prospect of using propranolol to modify memory has some trauma victims filled with hope, and some critics alarmed by the potential for misuse.

The Memory Pill

Short video clips of the segment at the link.

Note that section 4 is (unwittingly?) called "Mind Control?"

Also note as with any tool, Propranolol can be extraordinarily useful to some people, and isn't, of itself, a sinister substance.

There are far more troubling subtances in the black ops pharmacopoeia, many of which we probably don't even know about.

Propranolol has been around since the late 1950's.

It's brilliant for stage fright, it blocks adrenaline and the fight-or-flight response.

I'm sure it has enormous potential in helping people forget traumatic events.

Every drug has potential for abuse.

Further, while I don't wish post-traumatic stress disorder on anyone, this is all about treating soldiers who are experiencing extremely high rates of PTSD in the Oil War on Terra.

Sunday's LATimes carried a front page story about renewed experiments with psylociben or 'magic mushrooms' as therapy but without mentioning that LSD and other psychoactive drugs were used by the CIA for years on unwitting Americans to see if it could be weaponized.

Again, the renewed Cold War hoax has mind control efforts back in full swing and soldiers are perfect lab rats for today's Mengeles mandated with getting more mileage out of the fewer soldiers they can trick into the killing game.

'Fix' the ones ya got since fewer will sign up. Oh, and make sure they don't go all activist when they come home pissed off.

The implications of such nefarious thing as as black ops projects, manchurian candidate's i.e., "super spies" or induced soviet style forced mental institution imprisonment, or Bush's plan to screen every man, woman, and child in America under his mental health program is beyond frightening.
