What Has Tavistock Got on You?

The Institute whose goal is to control

Think all your ideas are your own? Think you can go your own way and everything will be OK? Or is someone watching you? Corralling you back into the fold?

We still hear people talk about the Tavistock Institute?s social engineering propaganda and mind control from time to time, but are they being paranoid?

Is Tavistock just affecting British people? Is its time over and done for? Are the fears of mind control just rants by unhinged lunatics?

Probably not. Here?s why.

The Institute

One institution that is core to global social engineering is based in Sussex, but has a much wider reach than just Britain.

People tend to think of ?Tavisocking? as being almost synonymous with ?programmed behavior modification? and the creation of popular culture trends.

For instance, Tavistock was largely responsible for the US populace changing their minds and becoming willing for the country to enter WWI.

The program is under the Special Intelligence Service branch of MI6, and led to the Office of Naval Intelligence and the CIA?s infamous mind control program under Dr. Gottlieb, MKULTRA. But the effects are not relegated to a few victims of such cruel programs, or people who did their sensitivity training through Esalen and got hooked into following programs headed by Intelligence agents, or took their freely distributed LSD and then burned out.

And you

Whoever you are, Tavistock has influenced your life immensely. Probably not as much as some authors claim who embue Tavistock with an evil degree of power, though as an outsider, I can?t personally say where the sinister-cut-off-point is.

History of Important Figures

Let?s look at a little history, beginning few years before it officially began, with the Wellington House Propaganda Bureau.

Successful authors, propped up by the government, have always played a large part in creating public opinion and mood. And authors there were, including Thomas Hardy, Rudyard Kipling, H.G. Wells, Arthur Conan Doyle, and many others.

Famous Writers in the Cult of the Goddess Isis

Many of the most famous authors did psychedelic Isis rituals in conjunction with work in Intelligence agencies.


If Tavistock is synonymous with the science of manipulating mass psychology, the one character within that matrix is Edward Bernays, who was Freud?s conniving nephew, who literally created Public Relations.

Another key member of the controlling class was celebrated journalist, Walter Lippman. They teamed up to create the invisible government which functioned as a mold for public opinion, as Bernays explained. Their intense methods of propaganda are undeniable and now ubiquitous. In 1921, the Marquess of Tavistock donated a building to study the effects of shell shock on the unfortunate soldiers in WWI whose lives were torn asunder by the horrors they had to be part of. The Rockefellers and Rothchilds pitched in too. They not only tried to help the soldiers, but studied their breaking point, and how to use that knowledge.

For example, they didn?t want them to talk under torture. Keeping secret information secret was paramount. Making people want to keep it secret, or in fact ? to want anything Tavistock desired ? was a requirement.

A Tavistock Clinic began in 1922, under the direction of Bernays, and deputy-direction of Brigadier-General John Rawlings Rees, as a branch of British Army Bureau of Psychogical Warfare that researched the human psychology and methods of mind control.

Mind Control through Destabilization

One methodology they uncovered involved keeping people traumatized, such as we experience if we watch the nightly news. What we experience daily is something like the psychic driving that Ewen Cameron eventually used in Canada, repeating shocking events that tear us down.

To know the ins and outs of waging and countering psychological warfare, they experimented on people domestically to learn what the limits are, how people behave, what would make them break down if they were captured, if too much was asked of them on the front, if they were told lies, or their confidence undermined. Strangely, they wanted to learn how to create fascism and apply it within the US.

In 1932, psychiatrist Kurt Lewin, from Germany, took over as director of the Tavistock Clinic, then went to America to set up the Harvard Psychology Clinic. Yes, that is where Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert aka Ram Dass would do their thing with psychedelics. And is it any wonder? Rees? Tavistock Method? was about controlling the environment, set and setting, to break people?s old ways down and substitute them with new ways as encouraged by peer pressure.

Tim Leary in Charge

Social engineering requires testing people to see how they can be influenced and used. One of the most famous test?


Lewin?s book, Time Perspective and Moral, is eerie. He says to undermine a group you want to control, keep them uncertain about their status, vacillating between hope and fear, kindness and cruelty, intermixed with contradictory orders and information.

Isn?t that somewhat similar to the news stories we?re told by CNN in which we?re expected to believe on completely opposing variation after another without backing facts or proof? The people who see through the propaganda then are threatened if they post their analysis on YouTube. How demoralizing.

In 1938, President Roosevelt allowed Winston Churchill?s Special Operations Executive control the US. The OSS began, based on the Tavistock model.

Occult Racism and Magick Boxes

Tavistock joined forces during WWII with the Rockefeller Foundation to experiment with psychotropic substances. A Dynonisian Isis-priesthood occult revival was in progress.

The Occult Bureaus in Intelligence both British and American had plenty to do, and Hitler?s underground occult practices certainly kept them on their toes. The British and Germans claimed dominance based on Theosophical ideas of Ariosophy, superiority based on their ancestral ?root races.?

They employed Enochian Magick, in practice as an espionage tool and propellant for empiricism since the Elizabethan era. They combined psychic methods with physical tools to create psychotronic weaponry. They used pseudo-scientific magick boxes that agents used to focus their minds power to influence people.


During WWII, employees were ensconced in all the British Army units as well as the Allied Command and NATO. The Tavistock crew continued to grow in prominence, controlling the World Federation of Mental Health. The Tavistock Intitute opened in 1947 as a non-profit which puts out the journals, Human Relations and Evaluation, and researches such topics as economics, organizational behavior, and sociology.

In 1945, Dr. Rees? book was published: The Shaping of Psychiatry by War, focusing on created a shocked, weakened, and insane society willing to go along with what they?re told. He called for mobilizing psychiatric assets to force the change on people he felt was necessary ? such as if they were so neurotic as to strike for higher pay from their employers.

Psychiatrist Kurt Lewin?s book, Time Perspective and Moral, is eerie. He says to undermine a group you want to control, keep them uncertain about their status, vacillating between hope and fear.

During the Korean War, starting in 1950, Tavistock methods of mind control were employed on soldiers to, among other things, prevent them from breaking down if detained as Prisoners of War.

It?s connected in the States to Stanford Research Institute (Changing Image of Man), Esalen (psychotropic warfare), and many other such organizations including Rand (Herman Kahn of How I Learned to?). Tavistock Institute: Social Engineering the Masses by Daniel Estulin rather emotionally details the vast machinery they have in place.

Your Life

When checking out your beliefs you?ve picked up, check out to see if they arose from any of those organizations, and that will be the first clue that they have been created to deliberately influence you in dubious ways. Assets involved with the CIA have generally been required to study the methodology through such organizations.

Conservative critics of Tavistock, such as the sensationalist, over-the-top author John Coleman, say its basic plan is to break down individual will and all that supports the individual such as nuclear family, ethnic identity, and church. By creating instability with wild sex and consciousness explorations, they undermine people?s solid psychological foundation. Perhaps.

?Today the Tavistock Institute operates a $6 Billion a year network of Foundations in the U.S., all of it funded by U.S. taxpayers? money. Ten major institutions are under its direct control, with 400 subsidiaries, and 3000 other study groups and think tanks which originate many types of programs to increase the control of the World Order over the American people. The Stanford Research Institute, adjoining the Hoover Institution, is a $150 million a year operation with 3300 employees. It carries on program surveillance for Bechtel, Kaiser, and 400 other companies, and extensive intelligence operations for the CIA. It is the largest institution on the West Coast promoting mind control and the behavioral sciences.? Source.


Rather than sticking to Britain, Tavistock?s fingers are everywhere in American education, corporate training, presidential policy, agriculture, drugs, health organizations and public opinion. Corporations put employees through leadership programs similar to EST and Landmark, in which the personality is broken down and rebuilt in a way that parrots the given memes.

This puts one in mind of the Osiris brainwashing in rituals which create rebirth into secret societies as a ?new man,? an initiate beholden to his new ?parents.? Such training is required for a large number of people through various structures for people entering careers in education, the military, the government, psychiatry, economics, etc. This ritual is part of why the Isis cult is so powerful.

Their principles are explicitly Freudian, and their goals include sneaky behind-the-scenes guidance of societies across the globe through their cultural trends.

Are You Really You?

The way you dress, your music, and popular phrases, may well have originated from a decision in an office somewhere in an old man?s mind as he tapped his pipe on the table, with a self-satisfied grin.

Or do you scoff at trends, just say no to fads, remain untouched by peer pressure?

Do you do you?
