Description: Hubbard lectures on the history of brainwashing and psychiatry. Probably the history of which Tom Cruise is very familiar.
So here we sit today with a total solution, really a total solution on brainwashing; it couldn’t be easier. Electric shock is very bad brainwashing, very poor. Hasn’t really even been used in space opera for years. Ah, it’s two or three million years, hasn’t been used to amount to anything. I mean, it’s just passé. You know, old fashioned.
But the modern commie psychiatrist here on Earth is not even able to get up to a passé type of electric shock. There are ways of using electric shock which are very injurious indeed. I mean, you can really give somebody hell with an electric shock. But the best way to use an electric shock is to nip him, you know? Exteriorize, and get so you can generate that much power, and just shoot a beam through somebody’s head and give him a stroke. But if you can do that, you don’t. It’s fascinating. Pretty well safeguarded.
The mechanism of brainwashing which I gave you, with supercold mechanisms and so forth, is very well known, was used very extensively in the Maw Confederation of the Sixty-third Galaxy. They had a total psychiatric control of all of their officers and executives, and when they got tired of them they used this specific method of brainwashing. It was the ne plus ultra. The track saw no better. It was the end of all brainwashing. And it was so effective that somebody after a while used it thoroughly upon this particular crew of psychiatrists, and that was the end of the practice.
