Project MK Ultra has served as the inspiration for some of the most well-known thrillers and secret government experiment stories—The Manchurian Candidate and Conspiracy Theory, to name only two. But would you recognize it outside the Hollywood hype?
Perhaps the quest for mind control over the American population was inevitable, as it evolved out of experiments conducted during WWII. Nazi scientists from Project “Operation Paperclip” helped form the OSS (the organization prior to the CIA) in America. This presented them with perfect test subjects in the form of an unsuspecting population. The interest and involvement of our intelligence agencies, the medical industry and the military spurred the advancement of the project and ultimately broadened its focus. Over fifty years later, the desire to determine how to implement effective mind control and brainwashing to control the public has outweighed the boundaries of ethics, morals and values – even in the Post-war era. You can learn more about quest for mind control here.
With the spectrum of mind control being so broad, in Part Two I have focused on the individual people and career fields involved in MK Ultra. This well thought-out plan on how to control the masses covers many different vocations with a deliberate intent. What type of person does it take to commit these atrocities on another? I have found in my research, more often than not, people motivated by greed.
Let’s look at the medical industry. Let me introduce you to neurosurgeon Dr. Orlando Joseph Andy from the University of Mississippi. Dr. Andy represents a special kind of evil in my opinion, because most of his victims were small children, ages ranging 5-10 years old. According to a 1973 article by the New York Times:
But much interest focused on the work of one of the more controversial psycho surgeons, Dr. O. J. Andy of the University of Mississippi, and his operations on hyperactive, institutionalized youngsters.
In one case, Dr. Andy removed a part of the brain of a 9‐year‐old hyperactive boy. The results of the first operation were not considered satisfactory, and several more such operations were performed. In the end, the boy’s hyperactivity was ameliorated, and Dr. Andy believes the operation prevented the child’s being kept under permanent sedation and restraint. But critics emphasize that the boy’s intellectual capacity deteriorated after the operations, and that—since some important brain development continues through childhood—the youngster never got his chance to learn what nature might eventually have done for him. It is mainly because of this uncertainty that American doctors have shied away from using the scalpel in such cases, though operations on hyperactive children as young as 5 years are performed with regularity in Japan, Thailand and other nations.
In the United States today, the number of psycho-surgical operations is estimated at 500 to 600 a year and appears to be on the increase, though no one has really accurate figures. They represent only a small fraction of the 38,000 brain operations performed each year…..
The background of Dr. Andy, according to the Society of Neurological Surgeons:
Dr. Orlando Joseph Andy, (1920-1997), was from New Britain, Connecticut. His Undergraduate and graduate studies were done at Ohio University and the University of Rochester in New York. His postdoctoral training was obtained At the University of Tennessee in Memphis, John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.
He became founding chairman of Neurosurgery at the University of Mississippi School of Medicine in 1955.
His appointments were Professor and head of the division of Neurosurgery and Associate Professor in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics.
He established a Neurosurgery Residency Training Program. The program was organized to provide a strong background in clinical neurosurgery and basic neuroscience; the latter being done by one year of laboratory experimental work, correlating brain anatomy, electrocardiography and pathology with behavior. In conjunction with Dr. Wolf, head of the department of Psychology, he established a postdoctoral training program in Experimental Behavioral Psychology, dealing with the anatomy, electro physiology and chemistry of behavior. Experimental subjects consisted of rats, cats and monkeys. Financial support was from NIH training program grants.

Many of these doctors and scientists, in my opinion, use the prospect of “healing” or trying to “find a cure” or to gain a “better understanding of how things work” as a front for their real intentions. It’s easy to make it appear that you are trying to do something good while committing one of the worst evils in the process. These doctors are in the business of “practicing” medicine; meaning they do not have specific answers to the problems they approach. It appears they are willing to do whatever it takes to further their research without pause to the care or concern of others. Which ironically, is the opposite of the Hippocratic Oath to, first do no harm, which they took to become doctors. Is the medical industry the first step in mind control? Maybe. It is one of the easiest fields to abuse or take advantage of people without them knowing, especially with the combination of drugs prescribed to patients. The white lab coat is easily one of the most recognizable forms of mind control using, or should I say, abusing trust. How far are we willing to allow them to further their research on us, as if we were guinea pigs, before we say enough?
In my research, I came across an interview with Dr. Peter Breggin. A man who was willing to say enough is enough with treating people like specimens. Ouotes from Dr. Peter Breggin confirms my thoughts on this:
BREGGIN: That’s always the case with psychiatry, that a medical language is used to disguise what are essentially matters of role in life or values or how human beings should live.
Another quote from Dr. Breggin: But the ethic of it is the general ethic of do as you are told, be controlled, be subject to control. Psychiatry is the ultimate expression of “Be the effect of what is done to you,” rather than “Be a cause in your own life and take over your life, operate on the basis of free will and gain increasing responsibility for yourself.
According to the article on Dr. Breggin:
Peter Roger Breggin first came to national attention in February 1972, when Rep. Cornelius Gallagher (D-N.J.) published Breggin’s massively documented analysis of the return of lobotomy and psychosurgery in the Congressional Record, following which Breggin released his research data through the Associated Press. His months of research had unearthed a tremendous upsurge in the performance of lobotomy and psychosurgery in the United States.
Psychosurgery, as defined by Breggin, is any brain surgery done with the intent to control emotions and behavior without treating any known brain disease.
Starting late in 1971 with several thousand dollars of his own and no outside support, Breggin created one of the most successful promotional and political campaigns in recent years. In a period of under two years, the National Institute of Mental Health and the Justice Department terminated more than $1 million in research funds to the Neuro-Research Foundation of Boston. More recently the National Institutes of Health turned down an application for $ 1 million from psycho-surgeon Vernon Mark, following a campaign led by Breggin’s Center for the Study of Psychiatry.
The Justice Department’s push for psycho surgery has been halted. Its Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA) has terminated support of a project related to psycho surgery and the control of violence. Breggin published still another criticism of the Bureau of Prisons, which then announced it would do no psycho surgery at its planned behavior modification facility at Butner, North Carolina. The LEAA recently released a memorandum stating it too will no longer support psycho surgery in any of its grants to states.
Breggin has taken his fight to the courts. With his assistance patients are beginning to sue psycho-surgeons for damages.
Dr. Breggin is the man who stopped Dr. O.J. Andy from harming any more children, by stripping the federal funding from these horrific experiments.
BREGGIN: Probably the best method is simply publicity, because when psycho surgery is exposed to the heat of public opinion it withers. For example, O. J. Andy, the Director of Neurosurgery at Mississippi was operating on little black kids, as young as five years old, mutilating their brains with five and six operations in order to quiet them and make them easier to manage in hospital wards. Well, we managed to create so much national publicity around this issue with Associated Press releases that went into the Mississippi area, with articles, with national magazine and radio coverage, that finally the University of Mississippi took it upon itself to examine O.J. and his work and declared it experimental and decided that he couldn’t carry it on without first submitting a protocol and submitting his patients to examination by a special committee. I think he knew that what he was doing would not be acceptable to that committee—he has not gone along with those guidelines and he has not operated since last summer. So in effect we’ve stopped O.J. Andy from operating by national publicity.
BREGGIN: So far as we knew, the only large numbers were being done in Mississippi although it’s very hard to know how many.
BREGGIN: Psychiatry, from its very inception has always been political, in that it’s involved cooperation between the government and medicine for the control of large numbers of human beings.
And there we have it. Psychiatry is political for the purpose of controlling the masses. Unfortunately, its not limited to just psychiatry.
