Mind Control Experiences On The Internet: that’s what “influence operations” are

When we view the facts about gang stalking, we frequently see individuals who have been bullied and harassed bu otherss online. And, that the harassment comes offline, and that the harassment is frequently part of national, and international crisis PR agents.

We see the language and the paralanguage, and  the jargon and argot language of military psychological operations of the intelligence community. And, we see that even Facebook investors have compared it to Edward Bernays propaganda, exploiting every vulnerability of our minds.

And Youtube programmers are deliberately and intentionally targeting our children’s minds with methods that were once illegal. And that they deliberately, and admittedly have sought to manipulate the dopamine levels in children’s brains to unknown effects.

So, ROGS asks: is what was once, perhaps an arguable necessary evil during the War On Terror-the evil of military propaganda and psychological warfare waged across the weaponized interent- is that now a pervasive and toxic and debilitating, and highly personalized and POLITICAL form of mission creep?

Let’s revisit the claims of some researchers and psychologists at the center of the Iraq war era of 2006, and see if their claims still hold up in light of the new information I have presented herein. Let’s revisit studies thaat once claimed that “mind cotrol experiences on the internet” are delusions, via PubMed’s psychopathology section, and the Munoz study I have cited elsewhere.

‘Mind control’ experiences on the internet: implications for the psychiatric diagnosis of delusions.

Author information

 Abstract

BACKGROUND:

The DSM criteria for a delusion indicate that it should not include any beliefs held by a person’s ‘culture or subculture’. The internet has many examples of people reporting ‘mind control experiences’ (MCEs) on self-published web pages, many of which suggest a community based around such beliefs and experiences. It was hypothesized that some of these reports are likely to reflect delusional beliefs and the hyperlinks between web reports were likely to show evidence of social structure, demonstrating the ‘culture or subculture’ exemption to be increasingly redundant in light of new technology.

SAMPLING AND METHODS:

Texts from web sites reporting MCEs (n = 10), experience of cancer (n = 10), depression (n = 10) and being stalked (n = 10) were identified, and were blind-rated by three independent psychiatrists for the presence of delusions. Hyperlinks from web sites reporting MCEs were used to create a network structure; this was compared with a size-matched, randomly generated network and known social networks from the literature using social network analysis.

CONCLUSIONS:

The sampled web-published accounts of MCEs are highly likely to be influenced by delusional beliefs. Social network analysis suggests there is significant evidence of an online community based around these beliefs. The fact that individuals can form a community based on the content of a potentially delusional belief presents a paradox for the DSM diagnostic criteria for a delusion, and suggests the need to revise and revisit the original operational definition in the light of these new technological developments.
