Will US Imperialism Intentionally Create Another World War?
The video above again features Kinzer, this time lecturing about his book “Poisoner in Chief: Sidney Gottlieb and the CIA Search for Mind Control,” which describes another little-known and darker-than-usual part of U.S. history.
Gottlieb has been described as a “visionary chemist” who worked for the CIA — a “master magician and gentlehearted torturer, the agency’s ‘poisoner in chief.’” Gottlieb ran the CIA’s now-infamous MK-ULTRA mind control project, which included “brutal experiments at secret prisons on three continents.” The key home-base, however, was Fort Detrick.
As explained by Kinzer, the primary goal of MK-Ultra was to uncover the secret of mind control. Gottlieb’s work was so secret, very few within the CIA even knew of his existence, let alone what he was working on.
Truth serums, amnesiac drugs and potions designed to cause a person to act after being programmed for a task and having the memory of the programming erased were all part of the tool kit Gottlieb sought to develop.
The originator of the idea behind MK-Ultra was then-deputy director of the CIA, Allen Dulles, who hired Gottlieb in 1951.2 Dulles went on to become the first civilian director of the CIA, a position he held from 1953 until 1961.
Gottlieb also developed a variety of drugs used by the CIA that could kill or maim without a trace. Here, the intended targets were foreign leaders marked for assassination. In 2015, The Intercept ran an article3,4 on Dulles’ pathological behavior and his connections to the deep state.
Kinzer’s lecture is far too extensive to cover here, so I encourage you to listen to it. It’s fascinating, albeit a bit of a side trail to the main topic of American imperialism. But I do want to summarize two of the key findings Gottlieb discovered after a decade of the most intense and grotesque torture sessions ever conducted — with the approval of the U.S. government, no less.
First, yes, it’s possible to break the human mind. And second, no it’s not possible to insert a new mind into the mind you’ve broken. Along that same line, he concluded that you cannot program a person to murder someone and then forget that he did it. In the end, Gottlieb concluded that true mind control is a myth. That people can be killed using traceless drugs, however, remains a fact.
Is the US Seeking to Escalate War in Ukraine?

In the present day, the U.S. is still flexing its imperialist muscles, this time by apparently seeking to escalate the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Columbia University professor Jeffrey Sachs,5 an economist, public policy analyst, and director of the Center for Sustainable Development, says he pleaded with the White House to negotiate peace and discourage Ukraine from joining NATO (see video above).
They refused, saying anyone has the right to join NATO if they want to. But as astutely noted by Sachs, this isn’t about the “right” of Ukraine to join NATO, it’s about the threat that poses to its neighbors, Russia in particular.
Russia has long been very clear about the fact that it will not allow Ukraine to join NATO, for the simple fact that it would place a NATO military presence right on its border. Russia wants Ukraine to remain an independent “buffer zone” between itself and NATO countries.
Would the U.S. be fine with Mexico forming a military alliance with China, installing Chinese military at our southern border? Sachs wonders. That’s highly unlikely, yet that’s what they’re pursuing in Ukraine.
Since Russia’s entry into Ukraine, the U.S. has done nothing but push for the escalation of conflict, to the point that we’re now hearing predictions about nuclear war. Why woul
