The Tavistock Institute

The ideology of American foundations was created by the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations in London. In 1921, the Duke of Bedford, Marquess of Tavistock, the 11th Duke, gave a building to the Institute to study the effect of shellshock on British soldiers who survived World War I. Its purpose was to establish the "breaking point" of men under stress, under the direction of the British Army Bureau of Psychological Warfare, commanded by Sir John Rawlings-Reese.

Tavistock's pioneer work in behavioral science along Freudian lines of "controlling" humans established it as the world center of foundation ideology. Its network now extends from the University of Sussex to the U.S. through the Stanford Research Institute, Esalen, MIT, Hudson Institute, Heritage Foundation, Center of Strategic and International Studies at Georgetown, where State Dept. personnel are trained, US Air Force Intelligence, and the Rand and Mitre corporations. The personnel of the corporations are required to undergo indoctrination at one or more of these Tavistock controlled institutions. A network of secret groups, the Mont Pelerin Society, Trilateral Commission, Ditchley Foundation, and the Club of Rome is conduit for instructions to the Tavistock network.

Tavistock Institute developed the mass brain-washing techniques which were first used experimentally on American prisoners of war in Korea. Its experiments in crowd control methods have been widely used on the American public, a surreptitious but nevertheless outrageous assault on human freedom by modifying individual behavior through topical psychology. A German refugee, Kurt Lewin, became director of Tavistock in 1932. He came to the U.S. in 1933 as a "refugee", the first of many infiltrators, and set up the Harvard Psychology Clinic, which originated the propaganda campaign to turn the American public against Germany and involve us in World War II. In 1938, Roosevelt executed a secret agreement with Churchill which in effect ceded U.S. sovereignty to England, because it agreed to let Special Operations Executive control U.S. policies. To implement this agreement, Roosevelt sent General Donovan to London for indoctrination before setting up OSS (now the CIA) under the aegis of SOE-SIS. The entire OSS program, as well as the CIA has always worked on guidelines set up by the Tavistock Institute.

The Fraudulent War - free ebook on the 'War on Terror'

The Fraudulent War - The facts about the Bush Administration's 'War on Terror' by Richard W. Behan is a quick but thorough dive through the dark waters of the scam that is America's war on terror. Well documented it shows that the wars against both Afghanistan and Iraq were purely and simply a land-grab for oil. They were planned well before the WTC attack with bin Laden serving as a convenient patsy.

Although the oil fields in Iraq are vastly richer than those in Afghanistan the story about the demonization of the Taliban is perhaps the more interesting. The Taliban repeatedly offered to hand over Osama bin Laden to the USA but stubbornly refused to renege on a contract they had signed in 1996 with Bridas Corporation of Argentina to build the Trans Afghanistan Pipeline. The USA didn't care about bin Laden; they just wanted the oil and pushed for American Unocal to steal the contract away from Bridas. In 1998 Unocal asked the House Committee on Internation Relations to remove the Taliban from power. Five weeks before 9/11 Bush informed Pakistan and India that he would be launching an attack on the Taliban. That very week after 9/11 Taliban negotiators repeated that they could hand over bin Laden. Bush refused - it was the oil, stupid! On 7 October 2001 the carpet bombing of Afghanistan started with the excuse of hitting both bin Laden and the Taliban for harbouring him!

With the Taliban removed, the first US appointed head of an Afghan interim government was Hamid Karzai, who later became elected President. Hamid Karzai was a consultant to Unocal. The first US envoy to Afghanistan was John Maresca, former Vice president of Unocal. The next Ambassador to Afghanistan is Zalmay Khalizad, a former consultant to Unocal and founder of the Project for a New American Century (PNAC). You can read about PNAC in the ebook.

And all of this funded by the American taxpayers for the profits of big oil and military contractors.

In the past I have referred to it as the War on Ghosts... and so it seems.

Colin Andrews - Crop Circle Research

Author/Researcher/Photographer. www.ColinAndrews.net Colin is best known for his research into the crop circle subject since 1983. He provides the only continuity between the past research era and the present, along with his friend and colleague, Busty Taylor. His long view of both the genuine phenomenon and the human-made phenomenon provides unique insight into the subject. His research results indicate the intelligence behind the phenomenon is interacting with both crop circle researchers and many of the people who make the hoaxes.

Common Sense Atheism

What do I mean when I say atheism is “common sense?”

I do not mean that religious people are stupid. Believers can be doctors, lawyers, scientists, engineers, philosophers, entrepreneurs – some smart folks.

Usually when someone says, “It’s common sense!” he really means “This is the way I think about it; isn’t it obvious to everyone else?” That’s not what I mean by common sense. I’m going to argue for atheism using your common sense; the way you already think about most things in life.

See, believers have two ways of thinking. In most situations, they think with the same logic as most people do: this is our “common sense.” Tell a believer that the bank stole his money, or that an ancient book says you can heal disease by dancing around a fire, and he will ask for evidence. That is common sense.

But believers think in a different way about their religious beliefs. This is “special thinking.” A believer reads in his religion’s ancient book that a man walked on water and rose from the dead, and that is enough for him to believe.

The whole point of my book is this: If a believer applies his special thinking to any other area of life, it becomes clear how irrational that special thinking is. And if he applies common sense to his religion, it becomes clear how irrational that religion is.
