"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 electronically control the brain. Someday armies and generals will be controlled by electric stimulation of the brain."
Dr. Jose Delgado
(1915-) Spanish professor of physiology, Director of Neuropsychiatry at Yale Medical School, famed for his research into mind control through electrical stimulation of regions in the brain
Congressional Record, vol. 118, No. 26 (1974)

    And I thought Hitler was bad ! Of course HE wouldn't be so controlled "for some other reason"; great guy...to somehow "get rid of" for the sake of all mankind. I wonder how he got so much attention here? Maybe they just couldn't resist trying to figure him out, like a lab rat ?

    It is a frightening thought that there are people walking this earth with this kind of evil, sick mind-set. Even more frightening is the thought that we have people in the upper echelons of our government (czars) who would hold the same views as Delgado.

    Especially the czars - Name names ? Better not but most will know. Two of the worse are married. The man, like Hitler, like animals over people, which there may be something in that, and thinks we can all be lead around like we are all Bart Simpson's. The his wife, who wrote a book so evil and horrible that most find it difficult to read.

    And that was in 1974! Dr. Delgado was able to put chips in the brains of mammals and, with a press of a button, stop a charging bull in its tracks. Sounds more like Mengele. It scares me to imagine what these guys have learned in 40 years!

    He's only speaking the truth and the "elitists" are walking the walk.

    Hey Anonymous, don't be afraid to stand up and speak. You're an American aren't you. The two that are married are Pivins and Cloward. They are the masterminds behind what's going on this country today. If you want a real shock, read what these Marxist extremists have to say about society and the government. Obama is a big fan, by the way. By the way, this professor at Yale is just the tip of the iceberg, there's thousands of them teaching at all levels of our fine government school system.
