"Are We All One? - social engineering and the “Alternative Culture"
In the wake of the Holocaust, Western Elites set themselves to the task of studying and understanding the origins of Fascism and the kind of racial and ethnic hatred that led to the extermination of nearly 11 million “undesirables”.
Through the Macy Conferences held in New York (1945 - 1953) and work pioneered at the Frankfurt School and the Institute for Social Research, The Stanford Research Institute, The CIA's "Human Ecology Fund" (Cornell Univ), and the Esalen Institute, the blueprints for the New Age Religion & Movement were laid.
Although begun benignly, with the intention of creating world peace, after the assassination of John F. Kennedy and the Fascist “counter-revolution” over the next 30 years - with the emergence of the New Left and the secret mind-mapping studies of the Pentagon and the CIA (known as PROJECTS MKULTRA & ARTICHOKE) - a psychological profile was developed, which would serve as the basis for engineering an entire culture whose sole purpose would be to contain and control the left leaning (right-brained) personality that originally gravitated towards revolutionary ideas.
It was introduced amidst a flood of army-produced LSD as “Flower Power” and “The ME Generation” and eventually morphed into the multi-billion dollar commercial New Age market's “Culture of Narcissism”, all the while convincing the adherents that they were participating in a revolutionary subculture that was "Evolving" the human race.
