“Controlled Insanity” – What an Amazing Goal

By Mary W Maxwell, PhD, LLB, April 28, 2015

Although I have read Orwell’s 1984 a few times, I’ve only just noticed that he actually uses the term “controlled insanity” to tell us that the men in charge really do want us to be insane. It’s their goal. They engineer it. Wow.

Orwell died in 1950. I wonder if he foresaw that when society is deprived of its sanity, this will backfire on the elite.

Here are but 25 things that strike me as insane:

  1. We are changing life forms, à la God.
  2. We use depleted uranium, despite irreversible harm.
  3. We allow fraudulent vote-counting at election time.
  4. We reduce the English language to make it ‘simpler.’
  5. We are trashing the values of privacy and autonomy.
  6. We merge businesses into monopolies, at a global level.
  7. We’ve invented new diseases that can hurt everyone.
  8. We teach soldiers and prison guards how to torture.
  9. We let courts and bureaucracies break up families.
  10. We let population numbers increase unchecked.
  11. We teach males not to be strong protectors of society.
  12. We no longer try to care for everyone’s dignity.
  13. We create weapons that are unbelievably expensive.
  14. We practice transmigrasei to undo established cultures.
  15. We teach young people that their elders are stupid.
  16. We frighten everyone with the new police state.
  17. We are reducing the age of puberty for children.
  18. We adore everything big and new and technological.
  19. We’ve agreed that sex should no longer be intimate.
  20. 20. We encourage distrust, instead of cultivating trust.
  21. We let our political ‘representatives’ sell us out.
  22. We make finance impossible for farmers so they quit.
  23. We genetically modify crops – with no discussion.
  24. We send mothers of infants to be soldiers in battle.
  25. We fail to publish science that contradicts the bosses.

How Did We Get Stupidized?

Of the 25 stupid things listed above, most or all could be turned around immediately. Yet people seem stuck. How is it that smart, good-hearted individuals feel unable even to debate these issues?

Allow me to proffer three explanations for our stupidization. The first has to do with the trait known as doublethink. The second has to with electronic mind control. The third is ‘Tavistockian’ repetition of stories, as is used by media.

Doublethink. The quote below, from 1984, lays out the fact that humans can always do doublethink if they have to. It is a naturally occurring trait. I would tie it to the more general biological capacity of self-deception. Even in the animal kingdom it helps an individual trying to fool another, if he believes the deceit himself.

It has fascinated me for the last decade or so to see how judges and law professors, who are very well positioned to understand law, have sort of gone into a doublethink trance. In the US, for instance, very few legal scholars today point up instances in which governmental decisions upset the separation of powers, which is the bedrock of the Constitution. I know they know this! They used to prattle about it all the time.

Orwell persuades me that their silence does indicate a blockage in their brain and that this blockage did not come from drugs (though it could, I suppose) or from a conscious fear of losing one’s job, but from ordinary doublethink.

‘Mind Control’ As Regards 9-11

I have also been fascinated by the public’s reluctance to investigate the mechanics of the attacks of 9-11. Why on earth wouldn’t the average Mom and Pop want to inquire into such interesting things as “How did 19 Arab hijackers board each of the four putative planes sans boarding passes?” or “Why would a US vice-president refuse to give sworn testimony to the 9-11 commission?” Believe me, Moms and Pops do refuse to ponder these things. I have tried gently to introduce the topic and watched them go into a perfectly smooth retreat to other subjects.

Until recently I thought it was normal denial. When my husband died in 2000, I went into denial and was amazed to find that I could intellectually understand that I was in denial yet couldn’t undo it. So I’m open to the idea that Americans likewise ‘can’t handle’ the idea that their government did 9-11. The doublethink maneuver may be related to denial – perhaps it’s tied to these same neuronal reactions.

Here is Orwell’s quote on doublethink in which he introduces the concept of “controlled insanity.”

(Taken from 1984, abridged):

“The prevailing mental condition is controlled insanity.

In a Party member not even the smallest deviation of opinion can be tolerated. And if it is necessary to rearrange one’s memories or to tamper with written records, then it is necessary to forget that one has done so. The trick of doing this can be learned like any other mental technique.

The Party intellectual knows in which direction his mem-ories must be altered; he therefore knows that he is playing tricks with reality; but by the exercise of doublethink he also satisfies himself that reality is not violated. The process has to be conscious, or it would not be carried out with sufficient precision, but it also has to be unconscious, or it would bring with it a feeling of falsity and hence of guilt.

[T]he essential act of the Party is to use conscious deception while retaining the firmness of purpose that goes with complete honesty. By using the word doublethink one admits that one is tampering with reality; by a fresh act of doublethink one erases this knowledge; and so on, indefinitely, with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth.”

Electronic Mind Control, e.g., from Satellites

Now to something more esoteric. As noted in my article about Melbourne citizen John Finch, thousands of people around the world report that they receive painful hits from electro-magnetic weapons. (They believe it comes from satellites, but the hits could just as well be coming from earth-based devices.)


Nick Begich, Jr is the son of a US Congressman who was on a plane that disappeared in 1972. As Nick lives in Alaska, it’s not surprising that he keeps an eye on the High Frequency Active Aural Research Program. The relevant patent (go to see uspto.gov for all patents) shows HAARP is a heater of the ionosphere! The US proudly announced in 1958 that it had made nuclear explosions way up there — out of scientific curiosity!  The US military now says it will “own the weather” by 2025. HAARP can make earthquakes (Alaska is not the only source; there may be a HAARP thingie in Oz).

Please listen to Nick Begich speak, on Youtube, about mind control. He shows how easily HAARP can send out an electromagnetic pulse that slightly alters human brain waves, en masse. This can put people into a susceptible mood, and then they will believe whatever they are told to believe. Another type of pulse can make everyone anxious, the precondition for obedience. Begich now says that it is easy to mess up the mind merely by altering the frequencies in the flickering of the TV screen.

Fluoride, v2k, etc

It is also widely claimed that the use of fluoride in the water, supposedly to help kids’ teeth, is really meant to tranquilize the population. I tend to believe this, using the following reasoning (which I call ‘boomerang reasoning’): Doctors who try to get their critical studies of fluorine published hit a brick wall. My cancer research (2013) taught me that censorship of scientists mainly occurs when they are onto something.

As to V2K, meaning Voice-to-skull communications, the website of the Federation of American Scientists quotes a military definition. V2K is “a neuro-electromagnetic device which uses microwave transmission of sound into the skull of persons or animals by way of pulse-modulated microwave radiation” It mentions that V2K is used as “an electronic scarecrow to frighten birds in the vicinity of airports.” Messages thus trigger a motor response which is involuntary.

I won’t endeavor to list other advanced mind control techniques. It should simply go without saying that powerful people will try to ‘disarm’ the individual of his most useful weapon: his brain.

Mind Control Is a Natural Part of Power Relations

Mind control is perfectly ordinary. I engage in it all the time by trying to influence my readers. Of course one can try to deceive one’s readers. Indeed there is the opportunity, if you have access to mass audience, to accomplish vast changes in thinking. As early as 1928, Edward Bernays – “the father of public relations” – wrote the following in his 1928 book, Propaganda:

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. … In the sphere of politics or business, in social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.   [87 years ago!] (Emphasis added)

A Great Insight into Media’s Control of ‘the Story’

It is well understood that there are ways to make an idea go deep into a person’s brain. Four such ways are: 1. Tell it to persons when they are very young. 2. Have an authority figure deliver it. 3. Associate the theme with a powerful emotion. 4 Repeat it often.

William Pepper is a lawyer who left no stone unturned in trying to find out who killed Martin Luther King. He proved in court, in the civil action King v Loyd Jowers, that the assassination was not done by James Earl Ray. Only one local reporter attended the court sessions. (Can you imagine!) Years on, the media are still routinely saying Ray did it. I call this JOURNALISTIC RECIDIVISM.


In his 2003 book, An Act of State, Pepper credits William Schapp, an expert on the government’s use of the media for disinformation and propaganda, with teaching him one simple trick: that it pays to repeat your story:

“The neurological impact upon human cognizance, and reasoned decision-making [is great] when the same story is told over and over again. That impact makes the story a knee-jerk part of the people who are exposed to it. Even if they are convinced on one occasion by powerful evidence to the contrary, the next day will usually find them reverting back to their long-held beliefs.”

That may sound outrageous but it’s actually good news. Children can easily be taught that we have this teeny-weeny brain deficit and can overcome it! At the very least one can repeat a competing phrase or idea the same number of times!

Similarly we can make a big dent in the doublethink problem, just by exposing it. As with our other evolved traits, the trick is to work with them. They are not going to go away but neither do they have to be our absolute undoing.

  1. It is highly ironic that the arch enemy of Big Brother … the advocate for freedom of thought and freedom of speech … was named “Goldstein”.

    Orwell knew. And, in Animal Farm, who were the pigs?

    • Well, if you mean it’s ironic that a freedom-of-thought advocate has a Jewish name, I don’t see the irony. Couldn’t anyone from any background (our editor from South Africa, for instance) get all hot and bothered about tyranny?
      Please tell us more about what “Orwell knew.” I believe he did know the plans of the baddies, down to every particular. (And there it is, all in simple black and white in “1984”.) There’s a house you can visit in northern UK, where Orwell supposedly lived, isolated. Personally I doubt that story.
      Unless he had a proto-email system! Greg Hallett, in an appendix to his eye-opening book “Hitler was a British agent” claims that all modern inventions were known long before they were announced.
      (I suspect there were test-tube babies before the 1980 birth of Louise Brown. Or at least the ability to determine the sex of the child — and I don’t see how that would be done other than by choosing which embryo to implant. Many of the mind-controlled girls I’ve interviewed were born into families of all girls. Too many for it to be coincidence. All of them pre-1980.)
      Or, if you’re game, tell me how you think “the Jews” are able to run China, these days. Generally I don’t accept the “The Jews did it” story. But I will always listen to evidence.
      Thanks, rediscover911. Mary

        • Hey, it was you who brought it up. Why just make innuendo?
          I took you to say that Orwell was onto the baddies and that he undersood them to be Jews. Isn’t that why you invoked the name “Goldstein’? So why be shy to say more.
          I doubt the readers will feel their time is being wasted.
          Come on, defend your theory. And though I have generally been a rejector of “the Jews” theory, I really do have an open mind.
          Whoever the guilty party is, it’s imperative that we get to the bottom of this thing.

    • Now you’re talkin’! Here is a good paragraph from the link you provided, Rediscover, about the similarity of men who allegedly died on Flight 77. Thank you. It makes mucho sense:

      It wasn’t Muslims … John Yamnicky strangely, for the first time did not tell his daughter that he was going on travel, and who, like William Caswell, had worked for the Navy on top-secret “black” projects. Others included Charles Burlingame, a former Navy fighter pilot who used to work in the section of the Pentagon that was hit and who had formulated a response for the eventuality of an airliner being flown into the Pentagon and whose daughter Wendy subsequently died in a “suspicious fire” at a 50-story high-rise in New Jersey in December 2006, Wilson “Bud” Flagg, a retired American Airlines pilot and Navy Admiral, Stanley Hall, an expert in anti-radar technology and a director of program management at Raytheon,
      Bryan Jack, a senior executive and top budget analyst who worked at the Pentagon, Chandler Keller, a Boeing propulsion engineer, Dong Lee, a Boeing engineer who worked for their Integrated Defense Systems and who had worked for the National Security Agency (NSA) for 14 years,
      Barbara Olson, CNN commentator and wife of the US Solicitor General who claimed to have received cell phone calls from “Flight 77”, Ruben Ornedo, a Boeing propulsion / satellite communications engineer, Robert Penniger, an electrical engineer with BAE Systems, and
      another dozen alleged “Flight 77 passengers” who were linked to defense and government who, we are told, all just happened to be on this unusually low occupancy flight. These people, well loved and respected as honest, decent heroes, are the very sort of characters whose work could have been horrifically exploited without their knowledge, and whom the 9/11 perpetrators would need to eliminate to prevent them speaking out after the attacks.

  2. Mary, it is not just 9/11 or the King murder that the msm refuse to investigate in a serious way, but rather endlessly repeat the official bs line. We have just been exposed to massive propaganda over the Gallopoli fiasco for example, which has several of the hallmarks of your list.

    Another hugely important area is the assassination of the Kennedy brothers. Again, the msm repeat the same absolute nonsense. I would hazard a guess that most Australians have never heard of the ARRB, yet their report and the literally millions of documents released as a result of the JFK Records Act effectively destroyed the Warren Commission Report. Yet what are we endlessly told? Lone nut Oswald did it!

    A current example is MH17. It raises the serious question of how does the msm See its role? Really nothing more than a purveyor of falsehoods in support of the governing elite.

  3. The “Jewish question” is a very powerful mind control technique employed in the “free world”.
    The statistical disproportionate presence of those who identify behind a “Jewish” identity, in positions of influence and power, is an undeniable fact.
    The particular tribal loyalty, criminally deceptive behavior and sinister mode of self serving intimidation can be easily researched through a study of money and political power over hundreds of years of historical records.
    Key subjects that manifest the “Jewish Question” are,
    1. the “Auschwitz Lies” and the many sophisticated strategies of power and control attached to the “Holocaust” propaganda device, Butz, Hoffman, Zundel,
    2. The federal reserve conspiracy researched by Eustace Mullins and countless others.
    3. The Jewish Roots of Communism – David Duke plus many others. [The China connection]
    4. Jewish Communist Mass Mind Control – Gordon Mohr
    5. Meet The Jews Who Own Hollywood and the Media – Tex Marrs.
    6. The Plot Against The Church – Maurice Pinay
    7. The Controversy of Zion – Douglas Reed
    8. The Project Gutenberg EBook of Secret Societies And Subversive Movements, by
    Nesta H. Webster
    9. The International Jew, Henry Ford — Radio Islam
    10. Innocent At Dachau — Joseph Harlow

    All these references present a consistent pattern.

    What is very instructive regarding the reality of the “Jewish Question” is if you attempt to discuss any of the listed content and it’s relevance to understanding the world, you will collide head on with the nature of the “Question”, which is that some subjects are not open to mention, let alone questions.

    Nothing is black and white or one dimensional

    Secrecy, lies, deception and mind control/sorcery are the rule.

    Mary, Communism/socialism = Zionism[Judaism] = Pharisaism/Chosen Ones = Internationalism/monopoly
