"We need a program of psychosurgery for political control of our society. The
purpose is physical control of the mind. Everyone who deviates from the given
norm can be surgically mutilated.

"The individual may think that the most important reality is his own existence,
but this is only his personal point of view. This lacks historical perspective.
"Man does not have the right to develop his own mind. This kind of liberal
orientation has great appeal. We must electrically control the brain. Some day
armies and generals will be controlled by electric stimulation of the brain."

These were the remarks of Dr. Jose Delgado as they appeared in the February 24,
1974 edition of the Congressional Record, No. 26., Vol. 118.

Despite Dr. Delgado's outlandish statements before Congress, his work was
financed by grants from the Office of Naval Research, the Air Force Aero-Medical
Research Laboratory, and the Public Health Foundation of Boston.

Dr. Delgado was a pioneer of the technology of Electrical Stimulation of the
Brain (ESB). The New York Times ran an article on May 17, 1965 entitled Matador
With a Radio Stops Wild Bull. The story details Dr. Delgado's experiments at
Yale University School of Medicine and work in the field at Cordova, Spain. The
New York Times stated:

"Afternoon sunlight poured over the high wooden barriers into the ring, as the
brave bull bore down on the unarmed matador, a scientist who had never faced
fighting bull. But the charging animal's horn never reached the man behind the
heavy red cape. Moments before that could happen, Dr. Delgado pressed a button
on a small radio transmitter in his hand and the bull braked to a halt. Then he
pressed another button on the transmitter, and the bull obediently turned to the
right and trotted away. The bull was obeying commands in his brain that were
being called forth by electrical stimulation by the radio signals to certain
regions in which fine wires had been painlessly planted the day before."

According to Dr. Delgado, experiments of this type have also been performed on
humans. While giving a lecture on the Brain in 1965, Dr. Delgado said, "Science
has developed a new methodology for the study and control of cerebral function
in animals and humans."

The late L.L. Vasiliev, professor of physiology at the University of Leningrad
wrote in a paper about hypnotism: "As a control of the subject's condition, when
she was outside the laboratory in another set of experiments, a radio set was
used. The results obtained indicate that the method of using radio signals
substantially enhances the experimental possibilities." The professor continued
to write, "I.F. Tomaschevsky (a Russian physiologist) carried out the first
experiments with this subject at a distance of one or two rooms, and under
conditions that the participant would not know or suspect that she would be
experimented with. In other cases, the sender was not in the same house, and
someone else observed the subject's behavior. Subsequent experiments at
considerable distances were successful. One such experiment was carried out in a
park at a distance. Mental suggestions to go to sleep were complied with within
a minute."

The Russian experiments in the control of a person's mind through hypnosis and
radio waves were conducted in the 1930s, some 30 years before Dr. Delgado's bull
experiment. Dr. Vasiliev definitely demonstrated that radio transmission can
produce stimulation of the brain. It is not a complex process. In fact, it need
not be implanted within the skull or be productive of stimulation of the brain,
itself. All that is needed to accomplish the radio control of the brain is a
twitching muscle. The subject becomes hypnotized and a muscle stimulant is
implanted. The subject, while still under hypnosis, is commanded to respond when
the muscle stimulant is activated, in this case by radio transmission.

Lincoln Lawrence wrote a book entitled Were We Controlled? Lawrance wrote, "If
the subject is placed under hypnosis and mentally programmed to maintain a
determination eventually to perform one specific act, perhaps to shoot someone,
it is suggested thereafter, each time a particular muscle twitches in a certain
manner, which is then demonstrated by using the transmitter, he will increase
this determination even more strongly. As the hypnotic spell is renewed again
and again, he makes it his life's purpose to carry out this act until it is
finally achieved. Thus are the two complementary aspects of Radio-Hypnotic
Intracerebral Control (RHIC) joined to reinforce each other, and perpetuate the
control, until such time as the controlled behavior is called for. This is done
by a second session with the hypnotist giving final instructions. These might be
reinforced with radio stimulation in more frequent cycles. They could even carry
over the moments after the act to reassure calm behavior during the escape
period, or to assure that one conspirator would not indicate that he was aware
of the co-conspirator's role, or that he was even acquainted with him."

RHIC constitutes the joining of two well known tools, the radio part and the
hypnotism part. People have found it difficult to accept that an individual can
be hypnotized to perform an act which is against his moral principles. Some
experiments have been conducted by the U.S. Army which show that this popular
perception is untrue. The chairman of the Department of Psychology at Colgate
University, Dr. Estabrooks, has stated, "I can hypnotize a man without his
knowledge or consent into committing treason against the United States."

Estabrooks was one of the nation's most authoritative sources in the hypnotic
field. The psychologist told officials in Washington that a mere 200 well
trained hypnotists could develop an army of mind-controlled sixth columnists in
wartime United States. He laid out a scenario of an enemy doctor placing
thousands of patients under hypnotic mind control, and eventually programming
key military officers to follow his assignment. Through such maneuvers, he said,
the entire U.S. Army could be taken over. Large numbers of saboteurs could also
be created using hypnotism through the work of a doctor practicing in a
neighborhood or foreign born nationals with close cultural ties with an enemy

Dr. Estabrooks actually conducted experiments on U.S. soldiers to prove his
point. Soldiers of low rank and little formal education were placed under
hypnotism and their memories tested. Surprisingly, hypnotists were able to
control the subjects' ability to retain complicated verbal information. J. G.
Watkins followed in Estabrooks steps and induced soldiers of lower rank to
commit acts which conflicted not only with their moral code, but also the
military code which they had come to accept through their basic training. One of
the experiments involved placing a normal, stable army private in a deep trance.
Watkins was trying to see if he could get the private to attack a superior
officer, a cardinal sin in the military. While the private was in a deep trance,
Watkins told him that the officer sitting across from him was an enemy soldier
who was going to attempt to kill him. In the private's mind, it was a kill or be
killed situation. The private immediately jumped up and grabbed the officer by
the throat. The experiment was repeated several times, and in one case the man
who was hypnotized and the man who was attacked were very close friends. The
results were always the same. In one experiment, the hypnotized subject pulled
out a knife and nearly stabbed another person.

Watkins concluded that people could be induced to commit acts contrary to their
morality if their reality was distorted by the hypnotism. Similar experiments
were conducted by Watkins using WACs exploring the possibility of making
military personnel divulge military secrets. A related experiment had to be
discontinued because a researcher, who had been one of the subjects, was
exposing numerous top-secret projects to his hypnotist, who did not have the
proper security clearance for such information. The information was divulged
before an audience of 200 military personnel.
