Before the Hippies

Before the Hippies of the 1960s discovered drugs and got high, there was the US Military high on the idea that drugs would let them control people's minds.

Here is a US military document entitled Experimentation Programs conducted by the Department of Defense That Had CIA Sponsorship or Participation and That Involved the Administration to Human Subjects of Drugs Intended for Mind-Control or Behavior-Modification Purposes prepared in 1977 by the General Counsel of the Department of Defense and released on May 6, 2010 after a Freedom of Information Act request.

Go read this document to find out how the hard-earned taxpayer dollars were spent on schemes to let the military "take control of your mind" and turn you into a zombie.

Sadly, this document doesn't cover the human tragedies created by these programs, i.e. the people killed, driven crazy, families wrecked, etc. You can get a taste of that by using Wikipedia to look up some of these programs and get some details: MKULTRA, MKDELTA, MKNAOMI.
