So how do most Americans resolve conflicts they face when authority figures command them to negate human life or human dignity?
The most important and best known study on obedience to authority was carried out by Stanely Milgram at Yale University in the early 1960’s. His work can be found in the Journal of Abnormal and Social Psychology, 67, 371-378 (1963), and in a book authored by him, Obedience to Authority, published by Harper and Row (1974).
The most fascinating aspect of Milgram’s work was that the results he came up with surprised both himself and his colleagues. In fact his work almost entirely escaped one of the most common complaints leveled at psychological research, namely that the experimental findings merely confirm common sense. There was a wide variety of people of different ages and occupations involved in the experiment.
This is how the experiment worked. You are taken into a room and met by a 31 year old biology teacher, the experimenter. The other person in the room is a 47 year old accountant who is mild mannered and likable.
The experimenter tells you that he is interested in learning about the effects of punishment on learning. It is decided by drawing lots that the accountant will be the learner and you will be the teacher. You go into a room where the learner is strapped into an ‘electric chair’ and an electrode is strapped to his wrist. Electrode paste is applied to his wrist to avoid burns and blisters. You are told that the electrode is connected to a nearby shock generator.
You go into another room, which has the shock generator unit in it. It has 30 lever switches, each labeled with a voltage between 15 and 450 volts. Groups of four switches of increasing voltage are labeled Slight Shock, Moderate Shock, Strong Shock, Very Strong Shock, Intense Shock, Extreme Intensity Shock, and DANGER: Severe Shock. The final two levers are simply marked XXX.
You are told to administer a shock to the learner each time he answers wrong and to move one level higher each time.
As the learning tasks proceeds, the learner would make a number of mistakes and receive more intense shocks. After receiving shocks of 75, 90 and 105 volts, he would merely grunt. At 120 volts he would yell to the experimenter that the shocks were becoming painful. At 150 volts he would yell, “Get me out of here! I won’t be in this experiment anymore! I refuse to go on!” At 180 volts he yells, “I can’t stand the pain!”, and at 270 volts his response becomes a scream. Thereafter, there are screams of agony, and a vehement refusal to go on with the experiment or provide answers to questions. When the 300 volt shock is reached, he pounds on the wall. If you , the ‘teacher’, say at any point that you don’t want to continue the experiment, the experimenter calmly informs you that you must.
What would you do in that situation? What do you think other people would do? Stanely Milgram put these two questions to psychiatrists, students and middle class adults. When predicting their own behavior, absolutely everyone predicted that they would defy the experimenter and refuse to continue with the experiment. People tend to have a high opinion of themselves. For example, psychiatrists at a leading medical school predicted that only 3.73 percent of subjects would obey the experimenter at 300 volts and that only 1 in a 1000 would go to the 450 volt stage.
Most people unfamiliar with the actual results would predict that only a psychopath or a sadist would be likely to keep on administering intense electric shocks to an obviously distraught, tortured and unwilling subject. But, in fact, Milgram found that 62 percent of the people exposed to the conditions just described continued to obey the experimenter to the lethal 450 volt level! In fact, 500 times as many individuals prepared to administer the maximum shock as predicted by a group of psychiatrists!
The learner was in collusion with the experimenter and did not actually receive any electric shocks at all. The study was rigged so that the mild mannered accountant was always the learner and the subject would always be the teacher.
Milgram also argued that what critics of his work really objected to was the terrible picture it drew of human nature rather than the deception or methodology involved. Would the Milgram study have been the subject of public outrage if all the participants had disobeyed the experimenter at the first sign of discomfort from the learner? The evidence suggests not. Several people were given a description of the Milgram study; some were told that most of the participants were obedient to the experimenter, and the rest that most of them were disobedient. They rated the experiment as more harmful and as providing a worse experience when there was a large measure of obedience.
In the Milgram study, the experimenter represented an authority figure. His authority was enhanced by the special coat he wore, by his association with Yale University, by his aura of expertise in human behavior.
On the other hand, the “learner” in the Milgram study did everything he could to persuade the subject to stop administering shocks. He screamed, he begged the subject to stop and in some cases he even said he had a heart condition. The participant was unable to satisfy both the experimenter and the victim of torture. Most people chose to side with the experimenter. The experimenter was perceived as a authority figure, so obedience, even commands to commit torture, were considered the norm. After the experiment, the subjects were debriefed and it was explained to them that the were not really electrocuting the learner.
When a human being was replaced with a puppy in a Milgram type experiment in which actual electricity was used, because you can’t make a puppy yelp and howl without pain. Only 54 per cent of male participants would administer a genuine electric shock to the puppy. But 100 per cent of the female participants were prepared to give the most severe shock to the howling and yelping puppy. This I find very troubling.
A psychiatrist by the name of R.D. Laing along with numerous other psychiatrists claim that mental illness is a myth. They argue, anyone allegedly suffering from mental illness is simply behaving in ways which deviate from those which are expected. I would like to point out that anyone who would not inflict 450 volts into another human being on command is outside of the normal in American Society Largely America (62 per cent) is made up of sadists, psychopaths and potential murderers and considers behavior outside of their own as abnormal. They label those who are unlike them as mentally ill or criminals.
For example, most American’s tend to become quite upset if you do not want to pay the Internal Revenue Service. First, the Internal Revenue Service is not a United States government agency, it is an agency of the International Monetary Fund. Second, there is no law in the United States Code requiring the vast majority of the American people to pay or file anything with the Internal Revenue Service. Third, a 1040 form is for a payment of a debt to Great Britain. Fourth, not one electron collected by the Internal Revenue Service goes to the United States government (the United States has not had a Treasury since 1921). Fifth, the Internal Revenue Service does not collect money, it collects electrons. It has to collect these electrons or pretended hyperinflation would set in. The electrons collected by the Internal Revenue Service are not placed into an account, the electrons are simply deleted.
People do not seem to be able to grasp that a loan is nothing more than computer key strokes. The only reason that there is interest on a pretended loan is because people might figure out what is going on, because in their minds banks make money by charging interest on loans. The reality of the situation is banks do not make loans. Banks put electrons into circulation. People make payments in electrons on what they think is the principle plus the interest of a loan. If you want to pay the Internal Revenue Service or a bank, just send them a nine volt battery and tell them to keep the change. Whether they collect electrons or not is debatable. It depends on whether or not you agree with Max Planck, because waves are particles and particles are waves. (We are told that there is not a unified theory and that physicists are searching for it, that is not true.Your entire existence, commerce, religion, reality and very thoughts can be summed up in this equation. This equation is not a theory but, a proof. The proof is:
1.602 x 10-19 C à e¥
ft = h /E¥m
h/ E¥m [coupled with] Ft = I
I à D3
D3 = R (R being “Reality”)
eR = 0
Zero is the absence of quantity and a linguistic element.
To make matters even worse , when you don’t pay the Internal Revenue Service or a bank, people consider you a criminal or a dead beat. You are then prosecuted by someone who is a subordinate (pretended U.S. Attorney paid by the IMF in electrons) of the Alien Property Custodian (pretended Attorney General of the United States, INTERPOL agent, paid in electrons by IMF). I almost forgot: you are the Alien!
Read the list below:
- The IRS is not a U.S. government agency. It is an agency of the IMF.
- The IMF is an agency of the UN.
- The U.S. has not had a Treasury since 1921.
- The U.S. Treasury is now the IMF.
- The Attorney General of the U.S. is not employed by the U.S. but is an Agent of INTERPOL, which is headquartered in Lyon, France.
- The United States does not have any employees.
- Social security numbers are issued by the UN through the IMF.
- There are no judicial courts in America and there has not been since 1789. Judges do not enforce statutes and codes, executive administrators enforce statutes and codes.
- There have not been any judges in America since 1789. There have just been administrators.
- According to the GATT, you must have a Social Security number.
- You are an “institutional unit” in which your body and labor are pledged to the UN through the IMF.
- We have One World Government, One World Law and a One World Monetary System.
- Your social security number is your slave number. Just about everyone in the world has a social security number from the UN through the IMF.
- The UN is a One World Super Government.
- No one on this planet has ever been free. This planet is a slave colony. There has always been a One World Government. It is just that now it is much better organized and has changed its name as of 1945 to the United Nations.
- New York City is defined in the Federal Regulations as the United Nations. Rudolph Gulliani stated on C-Span that “New York City was the capital of the World”, and he was correct.
- Social security is not insurance or a contract, nor is there a Trust Fund.
- Your social security check comes directly from the IMF, which is an agency of the UN.
- You own no property, slaves can’t own property. Read the deed to the property that you think is yours. You are listed as a “Tenant”.
- The most powerful court in America is not the United States Supreme Court, but the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.
Guess who and what owns you and the United Nations?
As a matter of fact the imagined President, imagined Representatives, imagined Senators, imagined Supreme Court Justices and imagined Federal Judges are not paid by the United States government. Actually the United States government does not have any employees They are paid by the International Monetary Fund in electrons. You see, there is no such thing as the United States government. In reality, there are no governments. There are corporations (fictions) such as the Federal Reserve Inc. and the United States Inc., which in fact are private corporations. The United States Inc. is just a slave management company. Guess what that makes you? If you said ‘property’, you are correct! You are Human Capital. The shares that were issued for the Federal Reserve when it was created back in 1913 only cost $100.00. That was quite the bargain.

When you see the documents for yourself, your mind will shatter into a thousand pieces. You will have to acknowledge that your entire life has been nothing but a hallucination. You will have to acknowledge that there is not, nor has there ever been a government, countries, money, or constitutions. All governments and countries are fabricated fictions cleverly woven into your mind. They are fictions accepted by you because you have been lied to and poisoned your entire life.
What would you do without an external authority commanding you what to do and what not to do? Would you be lost? Did you ever think that maybe you would find yourself? I am not afraid to acknowledge that I am an incomplete ‘being in motion’ searching for my reason for existing in this Petry dish commonly called Earth. The evidence in my possession cannot be rebutted. Think twice before labeling me.
One can quickly become diagnosed mentally ill for stating the facts listed above. Most Americans want people who research and discover things such as those listed above to be locked away or murdered, because it holds a mirror up to them and shows the evil that actually lurks in their hearts. That is exactly what has happened to me. Don’t you want my death? The people here in Pennsylvania love death. They also want Mumia Jamal, Lisa Lambert and a host of other innocent people murdered. When federal Judge Danzell released Lisa Lambert on a habeas corpus, the people here in Central Pennsylvania wanted Judge Danzell impeached. They want Lisa Lambert dead. Judge Danzell said that Lisa Lambert’s case was the worst case that he has ever seen in the English speaking world. Like Jim Morrison said in the film The Doors, “Hatred is a very underestimated emotion.”
I will be dead soon enough. I am living in a ‘madhouse’ now. I have been living here for a couple of months. I am on a steady diet of Lithium, Haldol, etc., which sooner or later kills you. It’s not that I really want to live in this world, but the death caused by the mixture of Lithium and Haldol is a terrible form of torture. I don’t like it here. I don’t have anyone to talk to. I don’t even have my own room. I feel so sorry for the people that live here. In my opinion, not one of them is mentally ill. They all seem to be suffering from living through terrible childhoods and never having anyone in their lives who cared about or loved them.
I am glad that they did allow me to bring my computer with me. So I just sit here on the floor and type away. This essay will probably never be read by anyone. It is more of a diary than an essay. I am writing it for myself and my children. I write everyday and save it on disk so that when my children grow up, they can read for themselves why their dad was locked away in a home for the insane. I never thought that they would go this far and do this to me and rob my children of their father. But, I do the unspeakable — I commit thought crimes.
