Cornerstone Article to the Reading of Winter Watch: The Tavistock Method of Brainwashing and Social Psychiatry

‘The proper study of political mankind is the study of power elites.’ — A.K. Chesterton (1899-1973)

From 1930 to 1933, Kurt Lewin (1890-1947) studied psychology and sociology at the University of Frankfurt (aka The Frankfurt School) in Germany and became director of Tavistock Institute in 1932. Drawing on the quackery of Freud, Lasswell, Leonard Doob and others, Lewin examined the psychology and power of suggestion created by stimuli and stimulus situations.

Tavistock’s projects were a followup on the work of the Frankfurt Institute for Social Research, which focused on the study and criticism of culture developed from the thought of Sigmund Freud.

Freud (1856-1939) believed that conventional morality is an unnatural repression of the sexual urges imposed during childhood. David Bakan, in “Sigmund Freud and The Jewish Mystical Tradition,” showed that Freud was a “crypto-Sabbatean” [, Livingstone].

Lewin came to the U.S. in 1933 as one of Frankfurt school’s “Jewish refugees” — the first of many infiltrators — and set up the Harvard Psychology Clinic that originated the propaganda campaign to turn the American public against Germany and involve the U.S. in World War II.

In the period before the U.S.’ entrance into WWII, Roosevelt sent Gen. William Donovan to London for indoctrination before setting up the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the precursor to the CIA. The entire OSS program, as well as the CIA, has always worked by guidelines set forth by the Tavistock Institute. Levin, then at MIT, partnered with Tavistock. Toward the end of the war, Tavistock personnel took over the World Federation of Mental Health. Other collaborators were the Stanford Research Institute, Rand, and the Institute for Social Relations. William Langer head of Harvard’s History Dept was instrumental in infesting this cadre into academia.

By war’s end, the combined influence of Tavistock and of the former Frankfurt School operatives, had created a cadre of “psychological shock troops” and “cultural warriors” numbering in the several thousands. Today, that network numbers is in the several millions around the world. You should take note that key people are put into influential positions, and a public-private overlay prevails in this system.

Dr. Lewin’s (and Tavistock) pushed the theory of topological psychology, which is to this day the world’s most advanced method of behavior modification: i.e, brainwashing. Psychopath Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) had stated that what was needed was a world populated by “docile,” easily manipulated and demoralized subjects. Russell regarded mankind as being slightly above the level of cattle. Russell said, “The social psychologists of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black.” In doing research on this general topic, it is astonishing just how out in the open these criminals were and are with their schemes.

The precursor to the Tavistock complex was the Cecil Rhodes Trust and its operatives, who were British elite supremacists and warmongers (often homosexuals) who teamed up with the Rothschilds, and later the Rockefellers.

What Lewin and his ilk did was combine their often odd and degenerate notions of social justice and ingrain it into every single academic action that Lewin took. This world view and paradigm was then indoctrinated by every means possible through brainwashing to re-engineer man’s self-image.

Tightly controlled mass media could be used to induce “regressive mental states, atomizing individuals and producing increased lability” [aka brainwashing]. In other words, creating passivity by fostering alienation. This theme is shockingly pervasive in the published works of these Crime Syndicate movers and shakers. Jewish supremacist hack Walter Lippmann (1989- 1974) identified the target in his book “Public Opinion”:

“The mass of absolutely illiterate, of feeble minded, grossly neurotic, undernourished and frustrated individuals is very considerable, much more considerable, there is reason to think, than we generally suppose. Thus a wide popular appeal is circulated among persons who are mentally children or barbarians, whose lives are a morass of entanglements, people whose vitality is exhausted.”

Lippmann concludes that “coordination of public opinion can only be managed by a specialized class which operates through “intelligence bureaus.”

Another Frankfurt School Dr. Evil alum, Theodor Adorno (1903-1969) concurred in 1938, commenting on his Radio Research Project. Adorno wrote that listeners to radio programs “fluctuate between comprehensive forgetting and sudden dives into recognition. They listen atomistically and dissociate what they hear … They are not childlike, but they are childish; their primitivism is not that of the undeveloped, but that of the forcibly retarded.” The project’s findings, published in 1939, backed up Adorno’s thesis of “enforced retardation” and serve as a brainwasher’s handbook.

It was obvious from even the earliest clinical studies of television that viewers, over a relatively short period of time, entered into a trance-like state of semi-awareness, characterized by a fixed stare. The longer one watched, the more pronounced the stare. In such a condition of twilight-like semi-awareness, they were susceptible to messages both contained in the programs themselves and through transference in the advertising. They were being brainwashed.

Fred Emery’s report in 1975 on neurological studies illustrated that repeated television viewing “shuts down the central nervous system of man.”

Adorno found the prospects of television absolutely lizard lip-licking. In 1944, he wrote:

“Television aims at the synthesis of radio and film … but its consequences are enormous and promise to intensify the impoverishment of aesthetic matter, so drastically that by tomorrow, the thinly veiled identity of all industrial culture products can come triumphantly out in the open, derisively fulfilling the Wagnerian dream of Gesamtkunstwerk — the fusion of all arts in one work.”

Lewin’s claim to fame was group think, or group dynamics. He was the inventor of sensitivity training, or attack training. In other words, you gather a group of people, assign a group leader, identify the stronger-willed people in the group and hammer them into silence or submission through ostracism and shaming. Fake guilt is a key driver of these schemes. That is manifested today with the relentless non-stop Around the Web stories that Winter Watch curates [sample] about various “oppressor” scams being run on college campuses. We saw this employed full tilt in the struggle sessions following the George Floyd psy-op.

Tavistockian refreezing and brainwashing in action

The key to a Lewinite brainwashing group is the creation of a controlled environment in which stress is introduced to redo individuals’ belief structures. Using peer pressure from other group members, the individual is “cracked,” and a new personality emerges with new values. The degrading experience causes the person to deny that any change has taken place. In that way, an individual is brainwashed without the victim knowing what has taken place.

This is also called the Gestalt Method. It tries to steamroller over structuralist psychology, which is more about introspection, self-awareness, one’s actual identity, objective truths and drawing on time-tested traditions. The Tavistock and Levin methods are about “unfreezing” or dismantling that existing “mind set.” Defense mechanisms (aka traditional thoughts) have to be bypassed and washed away. It is replaced with moral relativism. Once the subject is suitably confused, there is a transition or refreezing.

A key institution established for this purpose in the U.S. was the National Training Laboratories (NTL), founded in 1947 by members of the Tavistock network in the U.S. Its purpose was the brainwashing of leaders of the government, educational institutions and corporate bureaucracies in the Tavistock Gestalt method, and then using these “leaders” to either themselves run Tavistock group sessions in their organizations or to hire other similarly trained group leaders to do the job.

One of the groups that went through the NTL mill in the 1950s was the leadership of the National Education Association, the largest organization of teachers in the U.S. Thus, the NEA’s outlook was “shaped” by Tavistock through the NTL. In 1964, the NTL Institute became a direct part of the NEA, with the NTL setting up “group sessions” for all its affiliates. With funding from the Department of Education, the NTL Institute drafted the programs for the training of the nation’s primary and secondary school teachers. It has also had a hand in developing the content of educational “reforms.”

Also known as the International Institute for Applied Behavioral Sciences, it’s a brainwashing center in artificial stress training whereby participants suddenly find themselves immersed in defending themselves against vicious accusations.

Daniel Estulin in “Tavistock Institute: Social Engineering the Masses” lists just some the refreezing of society goals of this Crime Syndicate mega-campaign:

  • Youth rebellion against imagined societal wrongs.
  • The generation gap, implying a changing paradigm.
  • Experimentation with new family structures. Interpersonal relationships in which homosexuality, lesbianism and transgenderism (the Catlyn Jenner hoax) became “normalized” and “no different from other people acceptable at all levels of society, two lesbian moms.”
  • The emergence of the fake conservation/ecology movements and women’s liberation movement.
  • Black consciousness, racial mixing, breaking down taboos against mixed marriages as propounded by anthropologist Margaret Meade and Gregory Bateson of Tavistock.
  • It was decided at this meeting that an aggressive program would be launched to portray “colored races” as superior to western civilization’s white persons. From this forum came Oprah Winfrey and a host of black persons who were picked up and trained for their roles to portray “mixed races” as superior to whites.
  • A surge in interest in eastern religious and philosophical perspectives.
  • A renewed interest in “fundamentalist” Christianity and evangelical Zionism.
  • An increasing interest in meditation and other spiritual disciplines. The Jewish inspired “Kabala” was to supplant Christian culture and special people were chosen to teach and spread Kabala. Early chosen disciples were Shirley McLean, Roseanne Barr and later, Madonna and Demi Moore.
  • The increasing importance of “self-realization” processes.
  • Reinvention of music, “hip-hop” and “rap,” by such musicians as “Ice Cube.”
  • A new language form in which English is so mutilated as to be unintelligible. The Prescience of George Orwell — ‘1984’ is Here

Estulin in his book specifically addresses the importation of gangs for the purpose of weaponized chaos. We addressed this in our recent articles on African mobs in Melbourne and Sweden.

Rockefeller interests also funded the counter-culture “revolution” for the Tavistock Institute. The Rockefellers funded the radical-leftist Students for a Democratic Society to foment instability and pseudo-revolution in the late ’60s. The opportunity for constructive social change was lost thanks to the support of “Rockybucks.” A highly revealing 1979 video has emerged of a reunion of pompous, bragging LSD pseudo-counterculture promoters (including Timothy Leary) and is now available for all to see.

Read “In Plain View: Jaw-Dropping Video of LSD Promoters Holding 1979 Meeting”

Manufactured boogeyman terror is a key element of the equation. With it, humans can be reduced to a childlike and submissive state in which his powers of reason are clouded and in which emotional response to various situations and stimuli can become predictable — or, in Tavistockian terms, “profitable.” By controlling the levels of anxiety, it’s possible to induce a similar state in large groups of people whose behavior can then be controlled and manipulated by the oligarchical forces for whom Tavistock worked [see].

Alduous Huxley wrote to George Orwell: “Within the next generation I believe that the world’s leaders will discover that infant conditioning and narco-hypnosis are more efficient, as instruments of government, than clubs and prisons, and that the lust for power can be just as completely satisfied by suggesting people into loving their servitude as by flogging them and kicking them into obedience.”

Related imageMore advanced iterations include: rampant pornography, pedophilia normalization, feminization of males, hedonism, Satanism, speculative modern art requiring “experts,” drug abuse, spiraling into madness identity politics (not tolerating intolerance), the elastic use of the term “hate” for social control purposes, censorship and memory holing material that doesn’t fit the Tavistock narrative, dumbing down, idiocracy and technologically induced shortened attention spans, crisis management programs, and an endless strategy of tension via Gladio events and staged deceptions. Preaching against the nation state as destructive to the progress of mankind is a core tenet of this scam.

Something extremely important at the moment is that this Tavistockian Crime Syndicate is licking its chops for social and economic convulsions (such as Covid-1984 and cyberattacks) on a global-scale, followed by depressions, as a softening-up technique for bigger things to come, namely creating masses of people all over the world who will become its “welfare” recipients and plantation dwellers of the future.

This is a very large subject and onion to peel back, but an outline of the key players and methods is scanned in the following video and is a good starting and reference point.

15 Comments on Cornerstone Article to the Reading of Winter Watch: The Tavistock Method of Brainwashing and Social Psychiatry

  1. Great thought provoking article on a huge topic
    A minor quibble:
    ‘Reinvention of music, “hip-hop” and “rap,” by such musicians as “Ice Cube.”

    The 80’s and early 90’s golden era of rap, a genuine musical movement and natural progression of R&B and soul, was eventually coopted and redirected by ‘the music business’.

    Mr IceCube was one of the people who facilitated this new era which ultimately leads us to the completely hollowed out fake ‘rap and ‘hip hop’ that is promoted by the usual suspects today.

    RocknRoll’ was a whitewash of a thriving R&B scene in the 50’s, an earlier incarnation of the same paradigm. This cultural appropriation is very effective in ‘defusing’ the momentum of authentic cultural movements with strong societal roots IMO.

    • Glad you mentioned rock music, which was their method (using primarily the Beatles and Rolling Stones, then likely Led Zep) of “Adorno-izing” 60s and 70s youth. And, oh yeah, don’t forget Aleister Crowley. This was done in order to screw over whites, just like garbage rap and hip-hop are today screwing over blacks, who wouldn’t know a great soul singer like Aretha Franklin (RIP) if she hit ’em in the face.

  2. I concur that the Jews are major proponents of the Tavistock, cultural Marxist agenda, but they’re not alone. It seems to me that there are many players now. The Vatican is moving around behind the scenes, the US Mafia and Cosa Nostra have been integral since Meyer Lansky, the Hispanic drug cartels have their share of power, as well as mercenary military outfits running all over the planet sometimes cooperating and sometimes not.

    Do you all think the Jewish Crime syndicate is at the top of the pyramid or are they one step beneath? I’m beginning to wonder if there isn’t something higher up than they are.

    • Quigley talks about the British elites in Tragedy and Hope. And not just any elites but a cult of warmongering degenerates that got into power. As a result of WWII a seperate band of Americans degenerates emerged. It is an Anglo-Ameican-Zionist construct that has morphed further into a giant Crime Syndicate.

      • “No, it’s not a void. It’s a transition from a unipolar to a MULTIPOLAR world. The first industrial revolution created the economic and political power of Great Britain” – Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum in 2019 (Time) We In za have politicians spout such like too, African hatred of the west thanks to people muddying the waters between the people who controlled the trading companies using the names of our nations and colonials who mean well. Even the Native Americans get this but then their leaders were never in power or wooed by the tribe. Regular Africans get on with whites for the most part too;) Leaders schmaltz

        Great article BTW. Normies love to quote Bertrand Russell and I love to disabuse them of their fluffy notions. According to the path of the flaming arrow, they must go right before they go up but the poor serpent bruises his head on Binah ..

        As for zio cointel like Nasty Mutant, I think he’s young and thrives on the approval of his peers. I guess older guys like Makow enjoy the status; he’s often lazy and bored I expect. I suppose some shills must be MKed or such like or they must have tried that out at least. If they’ve done everything they’re accused of on the internet anyway… I gather most people who have participated in dark rituals are first coerced and then guilted afterwards. That’s sad and I’ve heard of people who help them understand the manipulation and free them of the guilt.

  3. One of your best Russ. It is so sad American’s have no clue about the plan for their destruction that started pre-WWII. They are also clueless to the unimaginable success of the planners.

  4. They have reached the point where they are telling us point blank…..our occult methodology is no longer needed. We are in control….the age of the human being has passed. You are ants on the ant farm and we run it. Technology, the forbidden knowledge, will be running things from here on and we will be running you. Apple and Steve Jobs came out with it’s technology with the blatant symbol of the fruit with the bite taken out and we couldn’t get it. The Garden of Eden, the tower of Babylon, the great money powers. “Full spectrum domination” as Don Rumsfeld once called it. I suppose we can hope that their extreme arrogance will bring about their ruin and a few good men will rise up to resist That seems a faint hope in this darkness. I think that is what Tolkien’s work was all about….a faint but real hope.

  5. The TV stare – so important but limited in effectiveness due to the TV requirement. And now with the monitors of our computers and so-called smart phones – a monitor we take with us to develop longer “stare” to pump the mass with programming.

  6. “In other words, you gather a group of people, assign a group leader, identify the stronger-willed people in the group and hammer them into silence or submission through ostracism and shaming.”

    I experienced this in the military. Contrary to what people might think, the strongest personalities are NOT the people they want in charge. I dealt with it the entire six years that I was enlisted. It didn’t matter how good I was at my job, the minute that leadership thought I was poised for promotion the senior NCOs would turn into huge A-holes and do whatever they could to shatter my resolve and make me take a back seat to less qualified people. It’s the main reason I left the military. I couldn’t stand the back-stabbing and the lying and I finally got fed up and decided not to re-enlist. After I got out I struggled to find a job and sank into a deep depression and even contemplated suicide. Things are better now but it definitely was a huge set-back for me in life. I feel I would’ve been very successful by now had I not been subjected their fear tactics and brain washing.

      Glad to know that you’re o.k. now. What the egotistical goons cannot take away from you is your training, experience and inside during all these years. You have also gained knowledge and wisdom. That alone is a major plus and will stay with you always and to use when it becomes necessary to defend yourself and your loved ones. Overcoming fear is the most important step on the road to recovery. For millenniums, Religious institutions have used fear, guilt and shame to keep the plebs under their control, while at the same selling them stairways to heaven.
      You already got what it takes to master your life on this prison planet. Welcome in the circle of survivors. The best is yet to come.

  7. Amazing article!
    Remember what Henry Ford wrote in TIJ, “they” got hold of the american theater scene end of the 1800s, they noticed how easy and effective they can form public opinions, influence narratives etc. And as continuation all film/movie studios which popped up early 1900s around LA, later called hollywood… well look at the owners, all tribe or heavily connected. It was from the beginning a propaganda machine, which sure did their part to push the US into ww2 and ignite more german hate.

  8. Did anyone else hear the Fifth trumpet of God Almighty sound when oil wells were lit ablaze during “Operation Desert Storm”?
    During the Gulf War when all the oil wells were lit ablaze I was attacked by a demon on three separate occasions all at night. This is what happened. While I slept a demon flew through my window and attack me. The spirit inside me fought this demon briefly until I awoke. Then it made me take over. I leaped out of bed trying to defend myself. This demon was horrid and spun circles around me thrashing through my soul with its hands, then it left as fast as it came. The demon radiated from the pains associated with the abyss. He was like a coal pulled from the fire, with the pains of the abyss Rev 9, 3. This attack happened on three separate occasions as I have stated. all on separate nights during the time frame when the oil wells had been lit ablaze in the Middle East. The third time it attacked me however was different from the rest. As before the demon attacked me, but this time I had enough since to command it to leave in the name of Jesus Christ. What happened next is even more amazing. After commanding this demon to leave in the name of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit delivered me outside my bedroom into the hallway. The demon followed. We were brought into the presence of the Lord. The Demon stood to my left and grabbing my hand, it placed its tail on top of my left hand. It was the sting of the scorpion and it went like this. It sent waves of fire through my soul Rev 9, 10. The pain was so sever that I couldn’t scream. Unconditionally, I looked straight up and said “Father please help me”. The demon then left.
    This all happened after being seduced into trying transcendental meditation, which caused spiritual bondage to witchcraft / demonic forces. Maybe the spiritual bondage occurred after playing a Ouija board or Tarot cards as a young boy. I’m not quite sure. They appeared at that time just to be games, and were sold in the kids section at stores or at least the Ouija board was. I had a lot of spiritual warfare after participating in these so called “games”. What I am sure of is that prior to being attacked by this demon, I was forced to go through the Illuminati’s esoteric initiation performed through altered states of consciousness / transcendental meditation assisted with witchcraft / demonic forces. Why I say demonic forces is that I believe all witchcraft to be the powers of demons / the Devil. I was forced to go through said esoteric initiation through methods including witchcraft, demonology, and subversive acts of terrorism. The methods of witchcraft included mind control / manipulation, heart palpitations, witchcraft dreams causing sleep depravation, powerful visions, and many other forms. In said ceremony I was instructed to except the worship of one of their many “demonic gods”. They informed me that in excepting one of there gods I accepted them all. One of there gods was the Devil, another they named Jesus, but they appeared to have a demon for every occasion. They informed me through methods of telepathy , that in accepting the worship of one, I accepted them all. What better way to join all religions of the world together under one banner of 666 spiritually enslaving society?
    David Spengler of the United Nations says that all people must go through a esoteric initiation and worship Lucifer to enter the New Age of Enlightenment. Helen Blavatsky calls it a Christ like consciousness, universal mind set. Benjamin Cream states that after said initiation all its members will be able to hear ancient wisdom spoken telepathically at the same moment by ascended Masters. I knew nothing of this group at that time or there Luciferian agenda of a One World Government. Take a guess what method is used for this initiation? I bet you know now. Have you heard of the New Age Movement, or its affiliation with “Free” Masonry? Do you know what a unholy baptism is or the term Kundalini.
    To the best of my knowledge this is the method Satan’s Secret Society uses to distribute the “spiritual mark of the beast”, and cause spiritual captivity Revelation 13, 10. Have you received your spiritual stamp of acceptance? If so, did you take it on the forehead becoming a spiritual slave of evil, or on the right hand a servant of the Devil himself? Does this sound hard to believe? Here are a few scriptures giving in sight. Revelation 13, 10, If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity they will go . This is spiritual captivity to witchcraft / demonic forces. Naham 3, 4, who enslaved nations by her witchcraft. Revelation 18, 23, By your magic spell all nations were led astray. Hebrews 2:15 states by there fear of death they are held in bondage. Witchcraft / demonic powers are very real. Thank you Jesus for the Holy spirit and your Angels.
    There is a way out, but it has been difficult for me. Revelation 12, 11, Those who overcame, overcame by the blood of the lamb and the “word” of their testimony. They didn’t love their own lives so much as to shrink from death. Hebrews 2, 15, By their fear of death they are held in spiritual captivity / bondage. Satan’s “Secret” Society isn’t very secret anymore! It is like a giant octopus with many tentacles reaching far and wide.
    Here is the rest of the story. Three to four nights later the demon returned in the early am @ about 3am. He wasn’t alone, Satan / Apollyon and the demon’s twin brother was with him. They hovered in the air above the ground, before the olive tree in our back yard. I could see them as the spirit in me manifested them to me! Satan hovered in the middle while the demons were on either side of him. The demon on his left had been thrown into the lake of fire for what he did to me. He radiated like a coal pulled from the fire what seemed to be 15’x15′. He was lit up like a Christmas tree! Graciously yours baptized by fire the witness! Who will believe this testimony? God will be my witness! Located in California. Recommended information Fake truth Movement Exposed 1-12 on you tube. It has insight into who has received the spiritual stamp on there right hand.
