Human Resources - Metanoia
Just watched the entire film at the link here:

It's an outstanding piece of work.

In the MK-ULTRA Iceberg thread, I argued for three major academic sources for the elite sponsorship of scientific attempts to control human behaviour:

i) the study of shellshock (now known, loosely, as PTSD), and the lessons doctors learned from examining and experimenting upon psyches which had been fragmented by the experience of terrible events;

ii) the very mechanical theories of the brain codified in Operant Conditioning, Classical Conditioning, and Behaviourism, and used as means of attempting to programme and control human behaviour;

iii) the shamanic and occult techniques for creating trance and dissociated states, and for guiding or controlling the behaviour of an individual placed in such a state.

The "Human Resources" documentary is an exploration of the central role of Behaviourism, and its even uglier sister, Eugenics, in the elite dream of controlling the great mass of the population - aka the "useless eaters".

All the interviewees are good and well chosen. At the grammatical level, one of the crippling features of modern documentary is that MSM will not allow anyone to speak for more than about 10 seconds. I've made films for National Geographic and Discovery, and if any interviewee speaks for more than about 8 seconds in vision (or often even out of vision), the Executive Producer will insist that their sync is cut down. Only the narrator (grammatically and literally the MSM voice of objective truth) is allowed to speak for a greater length of time.

"Human Resources" progresses its hypothesis through a series of chapters. As each interviewee is an expert in the subject matter of the chapter, he or she is allowed to speak. And unlike in MSM documentary, at length. The argument being made is sometimes illustrated, sometimes complemented, by the use of astutely selected archive footage.

There are also moments of outstanding filmmaking, such as the ringing of the bell sequence as Pavlov's dog salivates and children move between classrooms along the maze of school corridors, towards the source of sanctioned authority. Like moths to the flame.

The first part of the "Human Resources" documentary examines and explores the central role of elite sponsorship of Behaviourism to create controlled and controllable workplaces and classrooms as means of controlling the great mass of society: Kissinger and the elite's "useless eaters". It also touches upon the manner in which these crude psychological techniques are used in advertising.

The second part of "Human Resources" examines Behaviourism's central role in the covert mind control experiments whose most famous example is MK-ULTRA.

Interviewee Dr Colin Ross makes many crucial points, and demolishes numerous limited hangouts and spooky cover stories, including the entirely bogus claim that western mind control research was a response to Red Communist experiments. In fact, the western programmes were in existence long before the "brainwashing" stories of the Korean War, whose framing and reporting itself constituted a spin operation led by journalist and US intelligence asset Edward Hunter, who was charged with delivering this particular psyop.

The paper trail for western mind control experiments ends in 1973.

Covert mind control experimentation on humans and animals did not stop in 1973.

"Human Resources" entirely correctly recognizes the codification of Behaviourist mind control techniques in the KUBARK and Human Resource Exploitation Training Manuals of western intelligence interrogators, and the use of these techniques in Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo and numerous other classified sites.

MK-ULTRA shrink Ewan Cameron's core concepts of "Depatterning", the creation of a human tabula rasa through extensive electroshock and sensory deprivation, and "Psychic Driving", the creation of a brand new psyche containing only elements deemed desirable by the authority figure programmer, are central to KUBARK. As are the key Behaviourist (Jolly West) concepts of DEBILITY, DEPENDENCY and DREAD.

My one criticism of the film's hypothesis is that, whilst it touches upon Jolly West and such incidents as the Symbionese Liberation Army, it seems to buy the core argument of Adam Curtis' documentary, "You Have Used Me as a Fish Long Enough", which claims that mind control programmes such as MK-ULTRA ultimately proved unsuccessful.

My own position is that these programmes were partially successful, certainly in their ability to erase real memories, create false memories, and programme people to behave, temporarily, in ways in which they would not otherwise behave.

And this is all that is needed to create a patsy, such as Sirhan Sirhan.

Or a butcher, such as Tex Watson.

Or an iconic terrorist, such as Patty Hearst.

Or a controlled controller, such as Donald DeFreeze or Charles Manson.

Ultimately, "Human Resources" is an intelligent, provocative, timely expose of the pernicious influence of Behaviourist science, and the elite dream of controlling ordinary humans through Debility, Dependency and Dread.

Follow the bouncing ball
