2) The CIA Mind Control Program
In the early 1950s, the CIA began an experimental mind control program called Project MK-Ultra that lasted until 1973. With subjects including Theodore Kaczynski, better known as the Unabomber, MK-Ultra included dosing people with LSD without their knowledge or consent in an attempt to discover methods of mind control.
MK-Ultra also included experiments with ecstasy, heroin, barbiturates and methamphetamine, among other drugs. Truly MK-Ultra is a tragedy stranger than fiction, although One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest author Ken Kesey participated voluntarily.
