Gets contracts from the National Institutes of Health.
Merle Thomas Corporation

Does work in the field of pollution control.
Planning Research Corporation
, Arthur D. Little, G.E. "TEMPO", Operations Research Inc. Part of approximately 350 firms who conduct research and
conduct surveys, make recommendations to government. They are part of what President Eisenhower called "a possible
danger to public policy that could itself become captive of a scientific-technological elite."
Dedicates its work to what it calls a "national agenda." Wrote President Hoover's program, President Roosevelt's
"New Deal", the Kennedy Administration's "New Frontiers" program (deviation from it may have cost John F. Kennedy
his life), and President Johnson's "Great Society." Brookings has been telling the United States Government how to
conduct its affairs for the past 70 years and is still doing so.
This institution has done more to shape the way Americans react to political and social events, think, vote and
generally conduct themselves than perhaps any except the BIG FIVE. Hudson specializes in defense policy research
and relations with the USSR. Most of its military work is classified as SECRET. (One idea during the Vietnam War
was to build a moat around Saigon.) Hudson may be properly classified as one of the Committee of 300's BRAINWASHING
establishments. One of its largest clients is the U.S. Department of Defense which includes matters of civil
defense, national security, military policy and arms control.

the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998. This law required the creation of a federal commission to monitor

mandates of the United Nations' covenants and authority of the International Criminal Court.]
National Training Laboratories
One of the key institutions established for this purpose in the United States was the National Training
Laboratories (NTL). Founded in 1947 by members of the Tavistock network in the United States and located originally
on an estate in Bethel, Maine, NTL had as its explicit purpose the brainwashing of leaders of the government,
educational institutions, and corporate bureaucracies in the Tavistock 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. The "nuts and bolts" of the NTL operation revolves around the particular form of Tavistock
degenerate psychology known as "group dynamics," developed by German Tavistock operative Kurt Lewin, who
emigrated to the United States in the 1930s and whose students founded NTL.
In a Lewinite brainwashing group, a number of individuals from varying backgrounds and
personalities, are manipulated by a "group leader" to form a "consensus" of opinion, achieving a new "group
identity." The key to the process is the creation of a controlled environment, in which stress is introduced
(sometimes called dissonance) to crack an individual's belief structure. Using the peer pressure of 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 method is the same, with some minor modification, used in all so-called "sensitivity groups" or "T-groups," or
in the more extreme rock-drug-sex counterculture form, "touchy-feely groups," such as the kind popularized from the
1960s onward by the Esalen Institute, which was set up with the help of NTL.
From the mid-1950s onward, NTL put the majority of the nation's corporate leaderships through such brainwashing
programs, while running similar programs for the State Department, the Navy, the Department of Education, and other
sections of the federal bureaucracy. There is no firm estimate of the number of Americans who have been put through
this process in last 40 years at either NTL, or as it is now known the NTL Institute for Applied Behavioral
Sciences, which is based in Rosslyn, Virginia, or its West Coast base of operations, the Western Training
Laboratories in Group Development, or in various satellite institutions. The most reliable estimate is in the
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 United States. Thus, the NEA's outlook has been
"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, and has a
hand as well in developing the content of educational "reforms," including OBE.
Also known as the International Institute for Applied Behavioral Sciences. This institute is a brainwashing
center in artificial stress training whereby participants suddenly find themselves immersed in defending themselves
against vicious accusations. NTL takes in the National Education Association, the largest teacher group in the
United States. While officially decrying "racism", it is interesting to note that NTL, working with NEA, produced a
paper proposing education vouchers which would separate the hard-to-teach children from the brighter ones, and
funding would be allocated according to the number of difficult children who would be separated from those who
progressed at a normal rate. The proposal was not taken up.
University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School of Finance & Commerce
Founded by Eric Trist One of the "brain trusts" of Tavistock, Wharton has become one of the more important
Tavistock in so far as "Behavioral Research" is concerned. Wharton attracts clients such as the U.S. Department of
Labor---which teaches how to produce "cooked" statistics at the Wharton Econometric Forecasting Associates
Incorporated. This method was very much in demand as we came to the close of 1991 with millions more out of work
than was reflected in USDL statistics. Wharton's ECONOMETRIC MODELING is used by every major Committee of 300
company in the United States, Western Europe, the International Monetary Fund, the United Nations, and the World
Bank. Institute for Social Research Among its clients are The Ford Foundation, U.S.Department of Defense,
U.S.Postal Service and the U.S. Department of Justice. Among its studies are "The Human Meaning Of Social Change",
"Youth in Transition" and "How Americans View Their Mental Health".
Institute For The Future
This is not a typical Tavistock institution in that it is funded by the Ford Foundation, yet it draws its
long-range forecasting from the mother of all think tanks. Institute for the Future projects what it believes to be
changes that will be taking place in time frames of fifty years. So called "DELPHI PANELS" decide what is normal
and what is not, and prepare position papers to "steer" government in the right direction to head off such groups
as "people creating civil disorder." (This could be patriotic groups demanding abolition of graduated taxes, or
demanding that their right to bear arms is not infringed.) This institute recommends action such as liberalizing
abortion laws, drug usage and that cars entering an urban area pay tolls, teaching birth control in public schools,
requiring registration of firearms, making use of drugs a non-criminal offense, legalizing homosexuality, paying
students for scholastic achievements, making zoning controls a preserve of the state, offering bonuses for family
planning and last, but most frightening, a Pol Pot Cambodia-style proposal that new communities be established in
rural areas, (concentration camp compounds). As can be observed, many of their goals have already been more than
