Man's desires must overshadow his needs. This Bernais (sp?) guy, Freud's nephew, was a regular anti-Buddha. Gussied up the concept of propaganda by calling it public relations, gave women penises, what a resume.

  • part 2 features some good stuff on MK-Ultra, one of the CIA's mind-control projects - interviews with DR. Cameron's assistant and one of their "Psychic Driving" test subjects.
