Excerpt from The Bulletin of the Atomic Physicists, May 1959
Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer, director of the Los Alamos Laboratory and responsible for the research and design of an atomic bomb. He is often known as the “father of the atomic bomb.” The top secret project to develop the first atomic bomb was called
THE MANHATTAN PROJECT At a lecture to the American Psychological Association in 1952 and published in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists of May 1959 he said:
“In the last ten years physicists have been extraordinarily noisy about the immense powers, largely through their efforts, but through other efforts as well have come into the possession of man, powers notably and strikingly for very large scale and dreadful destruction. We have spoken of our responsibilities and our obligations to society in terms that sound very provincial, because the psychologist can hardly do anything without realizing that for him the acquisition of knowledge opens up the most terrifying prospects of controlling what people do and how they feel. This is true for all of you who are engaged in practice, and as the corpus of psychology gains in certitude and subtlety and skill. I can see that the physicists pleas that what he discovers be used with humanity and be used wisely will seem trivial compared to those pleas which you will have to make and for which you will be responsible.”
NOTE: The comment that immediately follows the statement above:
“This was for many psychologists, a most sobering observation. The possibility of controlling human behavior becomes a more terrifying prospect than the control of nuclear reactions”
And note who this gentlemen represents:
Arthur (Art) J. Bachrach (born March 20, 1923 – December 19, 2011) was an American psychologist and administrator, who was Professor and Chairman of the Department of Psychology at Arizona State University, and Director of the Environmental Stress Program and Chair of Psychophysiology at the Naval Medical Research Institute at the Naval Medical Center in Bethesda.

Editors note: In this series it is important to read all of the blog entries and links if needed, before going further in this series, some of the coming exposes would be impossibly long winded to explain without your already understanding the materials presented previously.
Once you have learned just ONE METHOD, a few of which have been presented in prior blog postings, life around you will begin to look just a bit differently than it appeared before..
Edit: The issue, the point, the reason for my posting this, is to nudge the collective perception, towards a greater understanding of the FACT that TRUTH CONTROL, belongs at the TOP of the list of “WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION” ahead of the atomic bomb.
The founders of this nation realized this in their own way, and because of this, they wrote the 1st Amendment.
Thank you for reading, please help spread these words.
