from Mind Control, World Control by Jim Keith (RIP)
Published by Adventures Unlimited Press 1997.
The Tavistock Institute for Human Relations, known by insiders as the “Freud
Hilton,” has been a major nexus for the worldwide psychological manipulation
that has taken place over the last 50 years. The Tavistock story—at least
the public version of it—begins immediately after World War II, when
members of British military intelligence created the Institute. In its own
literature Tavistock is described as an organization of “dynamic psychiatry”
which was intended to practice what they term ‘societry” on the planet as a
whole—and what I term world mind control.
British military intelligence itself, in the persons of many of its chief
players, has been aimed at a one-world government since its inception.
British Secret Service directors on an almost one-for-one basis have been
advocates of Fabian socialism.  It is alleged that Tavistock was set up
much earlier than its announced inception, over 20 years prior in 1921, by
Major John Rawlings Reese, on the orders of the Round Table’s Royal
Institute of International Affairs (also known as Chatham House). The RIIA,
along with the American Council on Foreign Relations, had been founded in
1919 during the Versailles Peace Conference, both being early New World
Order executive arms.
Reese was the man who dreamed of “building a society in which it is possible
for any member of any social group to be treated [psychiatrically], without
resort to legal means, and even if they do not desire such treatment.” At
the end of World War II, Reese called for the creation of “psychological
shock troops” who would fan out from the Tavistock Institute to engineer the
future direction of society. 
In 1932 Tavistock was put under the directorship of the German psychologist
Kurt Lewin. Lewin was a founder of the National Training Laboratories and
director of the Harvard psychological Clinic, and—an odd qualification for
a psychiatrist, I think—one of the key players in the original creation of
the OSS in America.
Lewin is credited with much of the original Tavistock into mass
brainwashing, applying the results of repeated trauma and torture in mind
control to society at large. If terror can be induced on a widespread basis
into a society. Lewin has stated, then society reverts to a tabula rasa a
blank slate, a situation where control can easily be instituted from an
Put it another way: By the creation of controlled chaos, the populace can be
brought to the point where it willingly submits to greater control. Lewin
maintained that society must be driven into a state equivalent to an “early
childhood situation. He termed this societal chaos “fluidity.”
Tavistock’s focus in the early days was on strategic warfare studies, in
particular of Germany, with emphasis on the reeducation of that errant New
World Order colony. During World War II many of the Institute’s members,
including its founder, Reese, ran the British Psychological Warfare
Directorate and subsidiary organizations based in the United States. After
World War II Tavistock can functionally be considered to have become a part
of Britain’s Psychological Warfare Bureau, now working on projects dealing
with the brainwashing of populations.  Tavistock is governed by what it
calls an invisible college, echoing antique occultist terminology and
reminding one that British intelligence was founded by Freemasons and
remains deeply Freemasonic to this day. The original use of the term
“invisible college,” prior to the announced creation of Tavistock, was
Reese’s reference to an informal association he had created of all the
psychiatrists then working in the British military.
For funding, the Tavistock Institute relies on large grants from anonymous
benefactors—with no doubt a substantial portion coming directly from the
Crown—along with grants from the Rockefeller Foundation, the Ford
Foundation, the Carnegie Institute, the World Health Organization, and the
British Home Office. Tavistock is also interlinked worldwide with a vast
network of other organizations and think tanks, including UNESCO, WHO, the
World Federation for Mental Health, and the Rand Corporation. Tavistock is
simply a front group for the psychological imp05ition of the New World Order
on the planet, and its main philosophic tool is the Hegelian dialectic
framed in the terms of Lewin.
The Rockefellers have always been prominent in deciding the course of
Tavistock. According to the official chronicler of the group,
“The Rockefeller Foundation, before making us a grant, would need to be
satisfied, not only by our policies.., but also with the persons to carry
them out.”  In a Tavistock-funded profile of the group, it is stated that the role of
the institute has been:
“(a) The invention of the command psychiatrist as a medical-social role
carrying out reconnaissance in a large structure and defined group, leading
to the ascertainment and recognition of critical problems in the sphere of
human relations and management.
“(b) The invention of social psychiatry as a policy science permitting
preventative technical intervention in large-scale problems. ..
“(c) The fashioning of a whole series of military institutions which
concretely and effectively implemented the policies advocated.
“(d) The invention of new types of therapeutic communities.
“(e) The invention of cultural psychiatry…
“Capability nurtured in the Tavistock for the psychiatrist to work with lay
personnel—in this case the military—in a collaborative partnership. In
other words, the strategy of command psychiatry and the developments to
which it led were psyche-dynamically conceived and based.”
Tavistock, born from the collaboration of the international monied elite,
military intelligence, and the materialistic psychiatric community, refers
to its self-admitted “military” orientation as Operation Phoenix—again, a
Freemasonic symbol that it shares with the infamous Vietnam War
assassination program. One is reminded of the Freemasonic legend “Ordo Ab
Chao,” Order Out of Chaos, which could just as easily describe the Tavistock
method of destroying a target subject, or a target population, prior to
reprogramming; the Tavistock modus operandi.
Throughout the Tavistock literature—either official or
Tavistock-inspired-they reiterate their “global vision” and make it clear
that the institute is intended to work its long-term “societry” on the world
regardless of the wishes of individuals who inhabit it.
One of the most successful of Tavistock-offshoot organizations is what was
originally known as the National Training Laboratories (NTL), and now the
NTL Institute for Applied Behavioral Sciences, founded in 1947. Located in
Bethel, Maine, the mission of the NTL is to give Lewin-inspired “group
dynamics” sessions to American leaders. Again, during group sessions
“dissonance” or stress is introduced to destroy the individual’s previous
beliefs, and then a new, group-oriented personality is coaxed forth. This
is the primary technical method used by a myriad of Tavistock-influenced
“sensitivity” groups like Alanon and Esalen.
Since the 1950s, NTL has processed the majority of America’s corporate
leaders in its programs, while simultaneously running the same programs
for various segments of the government, including the Navy, the Department
of Education, and the State Department. None dare call it mind control. 
Eric Trist, the chairman of Tavistock’s governors, in 1963 described his and
Tavistock’s work on mass brainwashing, delineating in detail his theory of
“social turbulence,” based upon the theories of Hegel, although again, Trist
is far more quick to cite Lewin.
Trist postulated that the administering of a series of traumatizing shocks
upon a society would destabilize it, lowering the overall character of the
society’s reasoning. Trist suggested that by late 1963 the world had moved
into a condition of “permanent social turbulence” that would serve to usher
in a new condition of society, a new paradigm, and a new possibility for
remaking the face of the planet.
The nature of the permanent social turbulence that Trist foresaw is further
defined in a book published in 1975 by one of Trist’s associates, Fred
EmeIy. The book, Futures We Are In, likens the condition of current day
society to the violent punk welfare state of Anthony Burgess’ novel, A
Clockwork Orange, written in the 1960s.
Emery, in reflection of Trist, also trumpets Hegel. He describes the first
stage of the breakdown of society as being “superficiality,” in which
previous societal values are questioned and discarded. He uses as an example
of this the death of the Judeo-Christian paradigm.
The next inevitable state is “segmentation,” in which societal institutions
break down, resulting in a reversion to paranoid groups of individuals
hostile to each other.
The next stage in the breakdown of society would be the launching of a
fascist movement akin to the Nazis.
The final and most disrupted state of society is termed disassociation, in
which the individual becomes the entirety of society for himself, and is
isolated from other members of the group. The dominant culture of the
society becomes “fantasy and superstition.” According to Trist, the current
“wired society” where the main interaction of the individual is with
electronic media is only a metaphor for disassociation. Cyberpunks, New
Agers, and couch potatoes, take note. It is interesting to note that the
same progression can be seen in the microcosm with the induction of the
multiple personality, an oft-asserted goal of intelligence agency
In May 1967 at Queen Elizabeth’s palatial estate in Deauville, France, a
conference was convened. It was intended to update participants on ongoing
projects of the Tavistock network. This was the “Conference on Transatlantic
Technological Imbalance and Collaboration,” sponsored by the Scientific and
Technological Committee of the North Atlantic Assembly and the Foreign
Policy Research Institute. Among the projects mentioned at the conference
were the collaboration of Emery and Trist on “social turbulence,” and the
SRI-Tavistock “Images of Man” project.
Participants in the conference included Tavistock’s Harland Cleveland;
Willis Barman of the Tavistock offshoot Stanford Research Institute; Dr.
Zbigniew Brzezinski, the future Carter national security advisor and the
Trilateral Commission’s founding executive director: and Fred Emery, who had
earlier delineated the stages of societal disintegration in his Futures We
Are In. Other participants were Dr. Aurelio Peccei, later to head the
zero-growth fixated Club of Rome, then chairman of the Economic Committee of
the Atlantic Institute, an important NATO think tank; and Sir Alexander King
and Sir Solly Zuckerman, advisors to the British crown.
Fleshing out the hologram of elitist New World Order planning is the
information that Brzezinski is believed by many in Western intelligence
organizations to be a KGB mole, recruited by British Round Tabler and
Rothschild-Warburg agent William Yandell Elliot. Henry Kissinger is also
linked to this group, reportedly after being recruited to a KGB homosexual
blackmail ring focused on the EICOM G-2 headquarters in Oberammergau,
Germany, at the end of the second world war. Kissinger was a member of the
U.S. Army 970th Counterintelligence Corps, involved in creating the Nazi
“rat lines” that enabled many prominent Nazis to escape prosecution at the
end of World War II.
Kissinger’s reported mentor was Fritz Kraemer of the Pentagon plans
division, who also groomed Alexander Haig. Kraemer’s secret life during
WWII, according to deceased conspiracy researcher Mae Brussel, was that of a
special lieutenant to Hitler. What does it matter whose side you are on, the
controllers might say? Both sides in the World War, or for that matter the
Cold War, only served to foster the synthesis of the New World Order. 
The principles that were agreed on at the Tavistock conference will sound
very familiar to those who have been following the reshaping of human
institutions and values by the New World Order. These include the belief
that man should not dominate nature, but instead become a part of it, with
no more rights and privileges than, say, the purple-assed baboon in the
wild. Governments are obsolete and will be replaced by other, more
encompassing institutions. Mankind is moving into a deindustrialized
post-technological society, an “information age,” the Age of Aquarius:
again, aborigines with laptop computers.
The primary impetus towards the evolution to the post-technological society
are the repeated shocks and chaos taking place, including such events as the
Kennedy assassination, the Vietnam War, and the assault on traditional
institutions and thinking by the psychedelic counterculture.
This philosophy was described exactly by Dr. William Sargent of the
Tavistock Institute in 1957 in his book Battle for the Mind—A Physiology of
Conversion and Brain-Washing. Again, the idea is that the micro reflects the
macro: the occultist dictum,
“As above, so below.
Sargent said, “Various types of beliefs can be implanted in many people
after brain function has been sufficiently disturbed by accidentally or
deliberately induced fear, anger, or excitement. Of the results caused by
such disturbances, the most common one is temporarily impaired judgment and
heightened suggestibility. Its various group manifestations are sometimes
classed under the heading of ‘herd instinct,’ and appear most spectacularly
in wartime, during severe epidemics, and in all similar periods of common
danger, which increase anxiety and so individual and mass suggestibility.”
Out of the Tavistock conference also came Zbigniew Brzezinski’s 1968 book
The Technotronic Age, that posits an information society whose basis of
competition is replaced by “amusement focus” based on “spectator spectacles
(mass sports and TV) providing an opiate for increasingly purposeless
masses… New forms of social control may be needed to limit the
indiscriminate exercise by the individual of their new powers. The
possibility of extensive chemical mind control… will call for a social
definition of the common criteria of restraint as well as utilization. And
some think that Guy DeBord’s Society of the Spectacle isn’t literal.
In the Technotronic Age, the “nation state as a fundamental unit of man’s
organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force:
International banks and multinational corporations are acting and
planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the
nation-state.” Brzezinski also says of the “Technotronic Age” that, “At the
same time the capacity to assert social and political control over the
individual will vastly increase. It will soon be possible to assert almost
continuous control over every citizen and to maintain up-to-date files,
containing even the most personal details about health and personal behavior
of every citizen in addition to the more customary data.
“These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities.
Power will gravitate into the hands of those who control information. Our
existing institutions will be supplanted by pre-crisis management
institutions, the task of which will be to identify in advance likely
social crises and to develop programs to cope with them.
“This will encourage tendencies through the next several decades toward a
Technotronic Era, a dictatorship leaving even less room for political
procedures as we know them. Finally, looking ahead to the end of the
century, the possibility of biochemical mind control and genetic tinkering
with man, including beings which will function like men and reason like them
as well, could give rise to some difficult questions.” A book written at the
same time by the conference chairman, Aurellio Peccei, was titled The Chasm
Ahead, and it too echoed the prevailing elitist themes: Peccei reiterated
that a one-world government was the only solution to the problems of the
world. Also required was that Russia and the U.S. would have to enter into
partnership in global planning and enforcement—a theme that has become
increasingly obvious in recent years with the Spetznaz setting up shop in
Peoria and Tulsa, and Clinton trying to lease the Long Beach Naval Yards to
the mainland Chinese. 
One of the footsoldiers of Tavistock—currently fallen from grace at least
in the eyes of the American people—is, believe it or not, Newt Gingrich.
The truth about Newt exists much in contradiction to his image as a staunch
upholder of Republican ideals and conservative family values. Gingrich is in
fact another Trojan horse whose mentor is the “futurist” Alvin Toffler.
Toffler’s book The Third Wave describes the current technocratic takeover
of the world, the acquisition of virtually all wealth by a tiny elite, and
the relegation of the vast majority of the populace to aThird World foraging
in the garbage heaps of the rich.
According to Gingrich, speaking to a crowd of yuppies at a congress on
“Democracy in Virtual America,” “In the mid-to-late-‘60s, I read Drucker’s
The Age of Discontinuities, Boulding’s The Meaning of the Twentieth Century,
Bell’s Beyond Post-Industrial Society—all of which were precursors to the
first popularizer of this notion, which was Future Shock, which was written
basically a quarter of a century ago. Now, those four books described
everything we’re living through for all practical purposes.., and nothing
has changed for a quarter of a century… I’ve worked with the Tofflers for
20 years in trying to figure out this interesting question. Since this is
all intellectually obvious, why can’t we break through?”
Toffler is a protege of Kenneth Boulding, who is one of Tavistock’s leading
lights in the United States, and according to his wife founded the
revolutionary Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). Boulding and his wife
were responsible for much bridge building between the Fabian “societrists”
of Tavistock and the New Left in the 1960s.
Gingrich revealed his not-so-hidden roots when he mentioned the
“anticipatory democracy” project in his introduction to The Third Wave.
“A/D,” as it is termed, was a project fielded by Tavistock in the 1960s
intended to bring about a New Age shift toward anything but traditional
values, unless it is the Wellsian “Open Conspiracy” traditional values of
the elite controllers. Among the later projects that would be created by
participants in the “A/D” project would be the Malthusian Club of Rome and
the Carter administration’s Global 2000 plan.
Gingrich was ushered into the Tavistock orbit in 1965 when, as an
undergraduate at Emery University, a professor at Georgia Tech introduced
him to the work of Boulding and Toffler. After getting his Ph.D. at Tulane,
Gingrich took a teaching job at West Georgia State College, outside Atlanta,
the East Coast node of the “humanist psychology movement.” One of
Gingrich’s closest associates was the anything-but-Republican Jimmy Carter,
who put Newt in charge of an A/D pilot project called Goals for Georgia. It
was only later that Gingrich got his calling as a banner-waver for the New
