The CIA’s mind control program in Australia: brought to our shores by The University of Sydney, Leonard Huxley and the chair of the Australian Psychological Society.
In August of 1960, at The University of Sydney, MKULTRA psychiatrist Martin Theodore Orne, performed an experiment titled ‘Antisocial Behavior and Hypnosis’. This experiment was financed by the Human Ecology Fund, (A CIA cutout for financing MKULTRA activities) and the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research. Orne’s visit to Sydney University was made possible by the United States Educational Foundation in Australia, which was the Australian body of the Fulbright Scholarship and Lectureship Program. The experiment was given permission to be performed in the facilities belonging to the Faculty of Psychology by Alfred Gordon Hammer, the head of the department, who was also the Chair of the Australian Branch of the British Psychological Society at the time (later the Australian Psychological Society). Hammer would spend two sabbaticals in Orne’s laboratories in the United States during the 60’s and 70’s.
G.H. Estabrooks, the father of the Manchurian Candidate was once quoted as saying, “The key to creating an effective spy or assassin rests in splitting a man’s personality, or creating multipersonality, with the aid of hypnotism…. This is not science fiction. …I have done it.” In April of 1960, four months before Orne was in Sydney, G.H. Estabrooks invited Orne to speak at a symposium at Colgate College. The paper presented by Orne at this symposium was later titled ‘Antisocial Behavior and Hypnosis’.
The goal of this CIA mind-control experiment was to see if hypnotised subjects would carry out dangerous and harmful acts that they wouldn’t carry out in their normal state (video below).
