SRI International

No claim is made for originality in the following post – it’s obviously heavily derivative and quotes extensively. This post might make some interesting pre-reading.


Stanford Research Center (SRC) was founded in 1946 by the Tavistock Institute For Human Relations. Stanford was created to help Robert 0. Anderson and his ARCO oil company.

From Wiki:

It performs client-sponsored research and development for government agencies, commercial businesses, and private foundations. It also licenses its technologies, forms strategic partnerships, and creates spin-off companies. SRI’s focus areas include communications and networks, computing, economic development and science and technology policy, education, energy and the environment, engineering systems, pharmaceuticals and health sciences, homeland security and national defense, materials and structures, and robotics.

In 1958, Advanced Research Products Agency (ARPA), a contracting agency for the Defense Department, approached SRI with a proposal. John Foster at the Pentagon told SRI that what was needed was a program to insure the United States against “technological surprise.” Foster wanted to perfect a condition where the environment became a weapon; special bombs to trigger volcanos and/or earthquakes, behavioral research on potential enemies and minerals and metals with potential for new weapons. The project was accepted by SRI and code-named “SHAKY.”

Stanford worked with numerous civilian consultancies, such as Schriever McKee Associates of McLean, Virginia, run by retired General Bernard A. Schriever, a former chief of the Air Force Systems Command, who developed the Titan, Thor, Atlas and Minuteman rockets.

Schriever put together a consortium of Lockheed, Emmerson Electric, Northrop, Control Data, Raytheon and TRW under the name of Urban Systems Associates, Inc.   The purpose of the consortium? To solve social and psychological “urban problems” by means of military techniques using advanced electronic systems.

It is interesting to note that TRW became the largest credit information collecting company in the credit-reporting business as a result and an outcome of its work with Urban Systems Associates, Inc.

In 1970, SRI formally separated from Stanford University and, in 1977, became known as SRI International. The separation was a belated response to Vietnam war protesters at Stanford University who believed that SRI’s DARPA-funded work was essentially making the university part of the military-industrial complex.

By the 1980s, 60% of SRl’s contracts were devoted to “Futurism” with both military and civilian applications. Its major clients were the U.S. Department of Defense-Directorate of Defense Research and Engineering, Office of Aerospace Research which dealt with “Applications of the Behavioral Sciences to Research Management,” Executive Office of the President, Office of Science and Technology, U.S. Department of Health.

On behalf of the Department of Health, SRI ran a program called “‘Patterns in ESDEA Title I Reading Achievement Tests.” Other clients were the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Department of Labor, U.S. Department of Transportation and the National Science Foundation (NSF). Of significance was the paper developed for NSF, entitled “Assessment of Future and International Problems.”

Stanford Research, under the tutelage of Tavistock Institute in London, put together a far reaching system it called “Business Intelligence Program.” In excess of 600 companies in the U.S. and abroad became subscribers.

The program covered research in Japanese Foreign Business Relations, Consumer Marketing in a Period of Change, The Mounting Challenge of International Terrorism, Sensory Evaluation in Consumer Products, Electronic Funds Transfer System, Opto-Electric Sensing, Exploratory Planning Methods, the U.S. Defense Industry and Capital Availability.

Among the companies who became clients of this program were Bechtel Corporation (George Schultz was on its board), Hewlett Packard, TRW, Bank of America, Shell Company, RCA, Blyth, Eastman Dillon, Saga Foods Corporation, McDonnell Douglas, Crown Zellerbach, Wells Fargo Bank and Kaiser Industries.

Stanford’s Charles F. Kettering Foundation produced a report “Changing Images of Man” under Stanford official reference “Contract Number URH (489)-2150 Policy Research Report Number 4/4/74. Prepared by the SRI Center for the Study of Social Policy, Director Willis Harmon, this is probably one of the most far-reaching investigations into how man might be changed that has ever been conducted.

The report, covering 319 pages, was written by 14 new science scientists under the supervision of Tavistock and 23 controllers including B. F. Skinner, Margaret Meade, Ervin Lazlo and Sir Geoffrey Vickers, a high-level British intelligence officer in M16. It will be recalled that his son-in-law, Sir Peter Vickers Hall, was a founding member of the so-called conservative “Heritage Foundation.”

Much of the 3000 pages of “recommendations” given to the Reagan administration in January 1981 were based upon material taken from Willis Harmon’s CIoM.

A nation could be programmed to change and become so accustomed to such planned changes that it would hardly be noticeable when profound changes did occur. The book title of Willis Harmon’s technical paper was The Aquarian Conspiracy and it foresaw a society where divorce drew no further stigma, suicide was at an all time high, raising few eyebrows, social deviations from the norm and sexual aberrations, once unmentionable in decent circles, would now be commonplace and excite no special protest.

They would, in fact, be prescribed in law and protest outlawed, on pain of heavy penalties. The literature of government instrumentalities would include such aberrations under acceptable names such as Equality and Diversity.

Long range penetration strain, the art of subjecting a very large group of people to continued social bombardment was developed by scientists working out of the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations and their U. S. subsidiaries, Stanford Research and Rand Corporation, and another 150 research institutions in the U.S.

Dr. Kurt Lewin, developed this form of warfare. Dr. Lewin organized the Harvard Psychological Clinic and the Institute for Social Research under the auspices of the Tavistock Institute.

The method is to cause information to leak out, in order to make citizens fret over various conspiracy theories, leaving him or her with a feeling of uncertainty and insecurity, isolated and perhaps even afraid, as he searches, but fails to understand the decay and rot caused by changing and decaying society, unable to identify or combat the social, moral, economic and political changes he deems undesirable and does not want, yet which increase in intensity on every hand and with each ostensible attempt to prevent them which, of course, produces the opposite effect.

Thus, as the governments focus on Equality, Diversity and positive discrimination, at the same time, pornography and prostitution is ramped up internationally, along with the female slave trade, saturation media and gaming encourages children to dabble in sexual relations and drugs, abetted by both the demoralized Boomer generation and it’s morally ambiguous successor, Gen X through the education system, itself termited and reduced to social engineering, with a veneer of academic study.

The overwhelming rise in mindless violence, serial killers, teenage suicides and the unmistakable signs of lethargy and ennui were all predicted by SRI International projects. In America, three key figures in this were Justice Hugo Black, Alexander King and Gunnar Myrdal, worth research in their own right.

Tavistock described it this way:

“There are three distinct phases in the response and reaction to stress displayed by large social groups.

First, there is superficiality; the population under attack will defend itself with slogans; this does not identify the source of the crisis and therefore does nothing to address it, hence the crisis will persist.

The second is fragmentation. This occurs as the crisis continues and social order breaks down.

Then, there is the third phase where the population group goes into ‘self realization’ and turns away from the induced crisis and there follows a maladaptive response, accompanied with active synoptic idealism and disassociation.”

Maladaptive response is a major factor in society’s response to dismaying developments. Unable to pinpoint the real source, society adopts the easy to understand scapegoats and targets them.

The 60s beat generation did not just happen. It was ably assisted, for example, by Lysergic acid, provided by the Swiss pharmaceutical company, SANDOZ, following the development of ergotamine by Albert Hoffman. It was financed through S. C. Warburg, Aldous Huxley, with his own perverse agenda which made him household word was instrumental in its introduction to the United States. Ginsberg and Mailer took care of its promotion, along with Leary. Kenny Love, published a five-page report in the New York Times.

Wiki on Huxley:

In October 1930, the English occultist Aleister Crowley dined with Huxley in Berlin, and to this day rumours persist that Crowley introduced Huxley to peyote on that occasion. He was introduced to mescaline (considered to be the key active ingredient of peyote) by the psychiatrist Humphry Osmond in 1953.

Through Dr. Osmond, Huxley met millionaire Alfred Matthew Hubbard who would deal with LSD on a wholesale basis. On 24 December 1955, Huxley took his first dose of LSD. Indeed, Huxley was a pioneer of self-directed psychedelic drug use “in a search for enlightenment”, famously taking 100 micrograms of LSD as he lay dying.

One of the ways heroin is moved into Europe is through the Principality of Monaco. The heroin comes from Corsica carried in ferries that ply a busy trade between Corsica and Monte Carlo during the summer. There is no check of what goes on or comes off these ferries. As there is no border between France and Monaco, drugs, and more especially heroin (partly processed opium), flows through the open border of Monaco into laboratories in France, or else if it has already been processed into heroin, it goes directly to the distributors.

The Grimaldi family has been in the drug smuggling business for centuries.

The proliferation of drug usage was one of the subjects under study at the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) under Leland Bradford, Kenneth Damm and Ronald Lippert at Tavistock’s Sussex University facility. It was known as the “future shocks” center, a title given to so-called future oriented psychology designed to manipulate whole population groups to induce “future shocks.” It was the first of several such institutions set up by Tavistock.

“Future shocks” is described as a series of events which come so fast that the human brain cannot absorb the information.  After continuous shocks, the large targeted population group discovers that it does not want to make choices any more. Apathy takes over, often preceded by mindless violence .

Such a group becomes easy to control and will docilely follow orders without rebelling, which is the object of the exercise. “Future shocks,” says SPRU, “is defined as physical and psychological distress arising from the excess load on the decision-making mechanism of the human mind.”

Eventually, in response to the calls by people and their major spokespeople to “do something”, crisis management and sustainability becomes big business and the hegemony of large crisis management organizations begins, organizations such as FEMA, which requires human disasters to justify its funding and emergency powers.


There comes a point where the the shocks become so many and so great, disintegration so insidiously introduced, that one needs to take time out, to just stop and look at what has been going on, to give it a name.   There are people who have found a name for this, including your humble blogger here but the name is scarcely going to catch on.

The mindset of the people who write so dispassionately about such horrific phenomena as human degredation, with a few to promoting it, in prostituting children and getting them on drugs, who experiment on society as the Frankfurt School or Joseph Mengele did is both banal and evil.

And that latter is the word I use for these people, these multi-billion dollar funded corporations led by the world’s so-called philanthropists.  The word is, quite appropriately: “Evil”.  This post touches on how evil and insanity oft go hand in hand.

    All too true James. Evil is the only appropriate description.

    “Those well versed in this material already know its source and for those not versed in it – it makes one stop and think.”

    The source is Satan, a very real being. Beyond that, there are thousands of people who have intentionally placed their allegiance with him knowing who and what he is; many thousands more of them deceived into thinking that he’s the good guy and our creator is the bad guy.

    The biggest triumph he has had so far is the number of people who think he doesn’t exist. The patterns of his presence throughout history, and the flow of changes that are anti-good over very long periods of time declare that these are not human in origin.

    I hope anyone reading this will investigate these things for themselves. You will be astonished at what knowledge is available.

    Turn off the TV and start reading.

    May the creator of the universe bless you.
