Who benefits from police militarization and steroid-fueled hyper-aggression? Who benefits from indoctrinating cops in tactics and an “us-vs-them” gang mentality that alienates them from their community? It sure as hell isn’t the cops. The deliberate creation of atrocity-inducing situations is a well-researched and well-worn means of orchestrating social control through division in prisons and on the battlefield. Why is the federal government using such techniques not only in domestic police training but in attempting to manipulate the public reaction to it? Is it paranoid to question whether they’re trying to create a dictatorship where everyone is too fearful to question orders, whether they’re cops or “civilians”?
The federalization of the police is not happening in a vacuum. What we’re witnessing is the end game of the luciferians’ reaction to the 60’s rebellions, where for the first time domestic dissent became a serious impediment to conducting a bankster war. The 60’s were followed by policy papers from elite think tanks, such as “The Crisis of Democracy” by Brzezinski’s Trilateral Commission, where the prescription for maintaining control was outlined in the planned destruction of the US middle class, and the first high level feelers into china implemented those recommendations by paving the way for the mass exodus of US jobs.
It’s appropriate that this is called the Lucifer Effect. The irony is that much of the 60’s rebellion was a side effect of the CIA’s research and popularization of hallucinogens as a means of mind control. (See the book “Acid Dreams”)
Anyway, the signs of the rising police state were already present by the mid-90s: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/misc.activism.progressive/hFt9uzBfyls/XEhTB1pXQjMJ
Welcome to LuciferEffect.org, official web site of The Lucifer Effect: Understanding How Good People Turn Evil (Random House, 2007). In this book, I summarize more than 30 years of research on factors that can create a “perfect storm” which leads good people to engage in evil actions. This transformation of human character is what I call the “Lucifer Effect,” named after God’s favorite angel, Lucifer, who fell from grace and ultimately became Satan.
Rather than providing a religious analysis, however, I offer a psychological account of how ordinary people sometimes turn evil and commit unspeakable acts. As part of this account, The Lucifer Effect tells, for the first time, the full story behind the Stanford Prison Experiment, a now-classic study I conducted in 1971. In that study, normal college students were randomly assigned to play the role of guard or inmate for two weeks in a simulated prison, yet the guards quickly became so brutal that the experiment had to be shut down after only six days.
How and why did this transformation take place, and what does it tell us about recent events such as the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuses in Iraq? Equally important, what does it say about the “nature of human nature,” and what does it suggest about effective ways to prevent such abuses in the future?
Please join me in a journey that the poet Milton might describe as making darkness visible. Although it is often hard to read about evil up close and personal, we must understand its causes in order to contain and transform it through wise decisions and innovative communal actions. Indeed, in my view, there is no more urgent task that faces us today.
