THE URANIAN INSTITUTE

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:

CULTS & MIND CONTROL

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION MAY BE UPSETTING TO READ.  IT IS OF VALUE HOWEVER TO THOSE WHO HAVE FAMILY MEMBERS OR FRIENDS WHO ARE LACKING A STABLE, HEALTHY, AND SUPPORTIVE FAMILY OR SOCIAL NETWORK, OR HAVE A HISTORY OF SUBSTANCE ABUSE PROBLEMS.

The Webkeeper of the Uranian Institute was once involved in work on criminal investigation of cults and illicit drug distribution, and became particularly aware of the recent wave of damage being done through use of hypnosis and other mind-control techniques in cult-like situations, due to vicitimization of a love one.  Note that cults are very often, though not always, interrelated with heavy drug abuse.  The following resources may be of especial interest to those who have or have had those they care for subjected to such abuse.  The general public needs to be aware of the spread of cults and yellow literature on mind-control techniques in recent years.  Some cults are large, others small, resembling little 'empires' built by those controlling them.  Cults on college and university campuses sometimes masquerade as religious organizations, deceptively dispersed among those which are legitimate. In some cases, members are threatened with severe repercussions and literal punishment should they make public or reveal to family or friends what takes place.  Fortunately, these are not a part of everyday life for all of us.  However, they do exist, and young people, as well as single adults without stable social support systems, are susceptible, particularly where proneness to loneliness, emotional stress, alienation problems, or easy access to drugs in new social environs are issues. Induction can begin with individual 'intimate' relationships which lead into a larger cult circuit.

Cheap books on mind control are available in bookstores of questionable merit.  Users of hypnosis and related mind-control techniques have often caused longterm psychological damage to inductees, turning their victims against family and true friends in order to maintain "total control", sometimes triggering suicide, or requiring extended therapy or psychological de-programming treatment.  In some cases, the damage is difficult to reverse.  A popular strategy is the offering of initially calming hypnosis techniques designed to take the victim "on a vacation", into a "worry-free state", or a "childlike state" free of concern and bonded in "trust"... this of course being among the more treacherous manifestations, as the individual under hypnosis is then vulnerable to whatever the skilled hypnotist chooses, and the "trust" may only be a trick to seduce the unwary.  These techniques can be very powerful and overpowering for the victim.  The underlying motive for these bizarre patterns is often a power-hunger drive that routinely accompanies extended amphetamine or cocaine abuse.  Should you notice a pattern of very obvious radical attitude or personality shifts  in those you love and care for due to their contact with highly secretive or evasive associates,  it might be advisable to contact a certified professional mental health or substance abuse organization.  In clearcut cases of cult involvement, the police may also become involved.  As time passes, we will attempt here to offer information on specific agencies to contact.

Among the more extreme cults are 'fraternities' of practitioners of sado-masochism, sometimes incorporating neurolinguistic programming and other mind-control strategies for control of members.  Use of methamphetamine and other derivatives such as 'ecstasy', and 'slavery' practices are features of some of the more extreme cults along with what is referred to as 'hypnosex' performed under hypnosis.  The potential psychological damage from such practices goes without saying to anyone with any degree of consciousness.

Searching for information on hypnosis abuse and  information on cults on the internet is problematic in that legitimate information sources are often slandered by cults they expose, which often have access to internet websites.  We do not claim here to be experts on the subject, but offer the following resources that have been filtered out of what is on the internet, believing them to have at least a certain degree of valid information for your resources.

Where there is obvious badgering or humiliation in interactions, sheepishly blank and starry-eyed expressions combined with seemingly automatic movements, blind and irrational defense of associates who clearly do not match the degree of virtue the victim ascribes to them, or evidence of  sado-masochistic practices, these are fertile grounds for serious psychological damage, and in some cases, cult induction, if not simply abusive relationships that can phase into other personal and relational problems, and which are just as problematic on an individual level.

The following contains  information and/or links on Campus Cults, Mind Control & Deprogramming, Political Cults, and Sex Fetishes involving Hypnosis and Mind Control that are particularly widespread in social circles where experimentation with drugs and sex are prevalent.

CULTS DISGUISED AS UNIVERSITY CAMPUS ORGANIZATIONS

CULTS ON CAMPUS: deals especially with cults extant on American university campuses.  These tend to use the less extreme forms of induction, merely playing on the loneliness of young people in new and unfamiliar environments:  http://www.cultsoncampus.com/

GENERAL INFORMATION ON CULTS & MIND CONTROL

RICK ROSS:  Criticisms of this website abound, and it is not yet clear whether the criticisms are legitimate or a form of revenge from the cults exposed there.  What the website does include is a significant amount of legitimate critical information on a variety of issues relating to cults and mind control, being a rather comprehensive source: http://www.rickross.com/

CULTWATCH.COM:  Contains information on some of the larger coercive religious cults in the USA, and general information about how cults and mind-control practitioners normally operate: http://www.cultwatch.com/ 

CULTINFOBOOKS.COM:  Providing books and other resources on various types of cults, and mind-control abuse: http://www.cultinfobooks.com

POLITICAL CULTS

NAZISM EXPOSED:  Among the more extreme types of cult are the neo-nazi cults, often overt and bristling with methamphetamine addiction, explaining the sometimes bizarre attitudes and behavior:  http://www.ekran.no/html/nazismexposed/. Research indicates that methamphetamine was in wide use among politicos in Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy and explained the otherwise seemingly inexplicable and sometimes violent events that took place at that time.  Today, research indicates that one of the main sources today of methamphetamine worldwide is the Opium Triangle, where it was discovered several years ago that producing methamphetamine or 'crystal' or 'meth' is cheaper than cultivating opium poppies. Methamphetamine is both distributed in Southeast Asian sweatshops to increase productivity, and also shipped overseas for street sales... note that methamphetamine is frequently a major component of the 'crack cocaine' and 'ecstasy' hybrid drugs smuggled around the world.

SEX FETISHES INVOLVING HYPNOSIS OR MIND CONTROL

An internet search for "NLP BDSM" or "hypno-sex" reveals a number of websites where a trendy practice extracting of sex under hypnosis, sometimes with prior permission, and sometimes without, is described.  These practices may at times lead to emotional trauma, or coupled with drugs, date-rape, and are frequently found in tandem with use of cocaine or methamphetamine and its derivatives. This may be the most problematic type of mind-control abuse to monitor or intervene in, and perhaps the most damaging, since as it occurs within the context of individual relationships, intervention may be deterred by laws protecting personal privacy. Websites include bulletin boards where members, among themselves, debate the ethics of their practices and 'how far they should go'.   As internet resources offering solutions to seduction or induction into sexual hypnosis or group sex cults are uncovered, they will be listed here for your reference.  Meanwhile, the aforementioned searches will provide more information than you may want to know about the subject.

Unfortunately, all these issues are among the more sordid and hopefully only marginal realities in today's world, to which inexperienced and alienated people are susceptible.  We need however, in any case, to be aware that they exist, so we are not caught off guard, until after family members, other loved ones, or even our neighborhoods suffer the effects of such dysfunctions.
