Mind Control Made Easy

This is an excellent video from Carey Burtt which lays out what you need to know about how destructive groups such as Scientology work. It uses humor to make its decidedly serious points.

As important as it is to have big media cover Scientology and related groups, have any reports on a major network been better able to explain what people go through when they join an abusive mind-control group such as Scientology?

Taking the information from Robert J. Lifton’s theories on mind control and making it accessible to the young people who are the prime targets of recruitment, Burtt has made an important video which deserves to be seen by all.

    This is probably the most important video in your archive.

  2. XENU TV Says:

    I like it too which is why I gave it extra attention. Thanks, Davd.

  3. Martin Says:

    What makes this video so scary is that it is true. This is how they operate, the they in this case being Scientology.

  4. Kimberly Says:

    This is scary. They don’t even mention Scientology, but the video’s describing it to a “T”. Cults have always amazed me because of the reason that people actually join them. Plus, I’m big into psychology and all that stuff. Scientology is different than any other cult to me. So far, it hasn’t turned into anything like Manson’s cult, but the fact that it has a spotlight in Hollywood is what worries me. I feel great pity for the people that get sucked into these things.

  5. Li Says:

    The more I know about scientology,more pity I feel about people who join it.
    I hope this site will open your eyes!They only teach the egoisme and materialism,which only degradates the world.
    Thank God I don’t know anyone here in my country that belongs to that “church”(?)!

  6. Ariel Says:

    The whole world should see this.

    two months ago i put this on for my friend who had spent time in a rehab for heroin…he freaked.

  9. Cathy Says:

    I actually used to do these things and I thought I was HELPING people. That’s part of what people outside of $cientology need to know: most of the $cnists you meet on your way in, are not bad, mean, or vicious people. They’re simply good cult members — on staff or not — who think that they have really found something and want to share it. They were indoctrinated the very same way, have become true believers and just want to help you.

  10. […] We talked about the expensive nature of the courses, the fact that OT’s can’t talk about the secret material to their closest family members or friends, the various methods Scientology uses to find new members through stress tests, drug rehab programs or business management courses.   How Scientology “finds their ruin” to get them in and methods they use to keep them in.

    I have been watching you and the LMT crew online fore about 6 months. Let me start by saying you and Bob Minton are true heroes and I am sad more people to not recognize that. I have xenutv on my favorites tab and my girlfriend wants to kill me because I keep making her watch with me every video about this cult I can find. I tried calling a phone number I found for the LMT but it was disconnected. That was very disheartening. What happened to Bob Minton? Did scientology get to him? I hope not. I am totally shocked that more do not know about the danger’s of this Nazi like cult and that they use the US’s very one principles of religious acceptance to their advantage. I think the problem is that people are so scared of being deemed not politically correct that they fail to recognize the truth. Thank you for all your troubles in exposing this disgraceful cult. Please tell Minton that he is a hero–as are you. Blessings.

  12. ScaredofScientologyNoName Says:

    One last comment. Tory is awesome and is also a hero. Forgive my spelling by the way.

  13. Nicole Wagner Says:

    I absolutely love this. My father believes in scientology. He holds my mother hostage, refuses her all medical treatment. All of their money pays for the very expensive vitamins that they take by the handfuls several times a day. He thinks that he can cure cancer with vitamins and his out of body experiences. When I was sick and in the hospital he came to see me and begged me to leave because I was being poisoned by the medical establishment. When I didn’t leave he didn’t talk to me for months. He did, however, convince my sister to leave the hospital when she was sick. Many days later she was in the hospital again for emergency surgery —-guess she didn’t work the tech right. My father thinks LRH is freaking messiah!!! What am I to do? My family is trapped and I am too supressive to be spoken to.

  14. Duane Says:


    -to all who helped in producing this gem. I was involved
    in two cults (you think I’d have learned the FIRST time..),
    and a “cult of one”, which was a VERY manupilative,
    needy person not even involved in a group. I dare say that
    I feel I was lucky to get out of the first cult after five years,
    not losing TOO much money (some thousands of $$), I had
    to have a strong will to escape the “cult of one” by changing
    my phone number. Lastly (and it was the easiest
    “escape”, though I lost a fair amount of friends in the
    process), I left the last cult in 1988 with NO damage.
    I was helped by an exit counselor, and in the process,
    he showed me Lifton’s theories on MIND CONTROL.

    Keep up the excellent work. And to you people who
    are struggling, BE who you ARE, listen to your true
    self, and otherwise never give up allowing the TRUTH
    to help you make your personal decisions!

  18. Josie Says:

    Hello there. I just wanted to comment and let you know I think that what your doing is just wonderful. $cientology and the like scare the life out of me. It is so horrifying. I am so happy that you’re trying to expose these cults for what they are. I’m not religioius in any way personally, but I do hope for these cult followers sakes that one day they stumble across one of these videos and realize what the cult is doing to them, realize there isn’t anything wrong with them etc. It saddens me deeply to know that there are people out there that would take advantage of others the way $cientology and the like has. I’m sure most of the lower members are really trying to help others and feel they’re doing the right thing, but it’s all about the cash, power, etc. when you get hirer up, such as in L. Ron Hubbord’s case:-P It’s horrible. The more I read/hear about it the more it disturbs me…hopefully it won’t last forever though and the members etc. can get out before they get themselves harmed too badly. I very much look forward to Jason Beghe’s interview:-) Thank you for trying to help others with your video’s and inform them/warn them of cults etc. Even though I personally am not a member of cults nor religion, it makes my very happy to know that there are people out there trying to help others with information and make an effort to put an end to this and expose these things for what they are. I wish you the best of luck in your efforts. Take care now and thank you again for all your hard work:-)

  19. Josie Says:

    ^Higher (oops!) hirer, lol!

  20. Lazy Gardens Says:

    This could also be any MLM … the worship of the founder, the insistence that you are doing it wrong, separating you from non-MLM people.

  21. Eric Says:

    I have commented on other pages as well, but again, Thanks for doing all this Mark!

  22. […] actually sat down and watched this interesting video on Mark Bunker’s site all the way through: Mind Control Made Easy THE WOG BLOG from XENU TV I’ve stumbled around Bunker’s site for a while but never really clicked on the link that led to […]

  23. deserticus Says:

    wow !! fun to watch but scary how truthfull is, i´ve seen those “technologies” even at corporations, bussines, franchises, etc.

  24. dewey44 Says:

    I just hope everyone finds good in their lives. http://freeselfhelpbook.info/

  25. XEMUTV Says:

    So what happens to a good group of people who plan to change the world by force.Does this mean that whenever a group of people form together for the good of mankind then they will be discarded immediately?

  26. Mary Says:

    Of coarse it had to be XEMUTV to say change the world by “FORCE”! Good people don’t force others to do anything! Your use of language such as a group banning together for the “good” of mankind is a perfect example of a CULT! The problem is your CULT teaches you that you are SUPERIOR to the rest of mankind! There are many church goups who worship together for peace amongst themselves, not for the purpose of taking over the world!. You need to think before you speak, Your constant rabmlings about your own CULT activity are getting old. And YES we will do everything to make sure this TAX EXEMPT CULT is dismantled. DID YOU EVEN WATCH THE VIDEO, OR LISTEN? IT IS ALL ABOUT YOU!!!
    The day you can discuss your tech with your fellow members openly, stop the bait and switch, go on the internet and watch TV without restrictions, speak to your family, not be thrown in the RPF, not be sec checked, not go to Ethics, not have OSA operatives destroying people’s lives, reunite all the lost children with their parents, and throw David Miscavige to the curb, maybe someone will take you seriously! COME UP TO PRESENT TIME!!! L RON HUBBARD WAS A FRAUD-SCIENTOLOGY IS A CULT

  27. Mr Obese Says:

    Shit, there’s nothing there at all that isn’t done by Scientology.

  28. Ronald Says:

    This could be any cult. I was in a Gurdjieff cult that followed these practices to the letter.

  29. lulaby Says:

    Hi, Ronald,

    If you see this message I would be very interested in knowing something more about the Gurdjieff cult. I have some friends that are involved in some kind of “school” based on his teachings. They convinced me to participate in what they call a Communication Seminar, held by their Leader/Master and it was a weird experience. It was not unpleasant (you feel EXTREMELY relaxed at the end) but I definitely felt there was something wrong. They used love bombing, repetitive rituals etc. I must say that if you don’t know what hides behind it, it’s not so difficult to get caught up. Luckily I managed to get some information. My question is: how should I behave with my friends who are in the cult? So far I’ve avoided any kind negative comment, because I know that if they realized I’m critical about the school they would just cut off contact with me. I just try to make them feel that I’m there for them whatever they decide to do, but I’m not sure it’s enough….
    How did you get out, if you don’t mind me asking? Did anyone help you? How?

    Thank you very much for your help

  30. […] There is a great video which take’s Professor Robert J. Lifton’s theories about mind control organization and relates that serious info in a fun and humorous manner. “Mind Control Made Easy.” […]

  31. Dave O'Maley Says:

    You know what the scariest thing is about $cientology? Not only do they employ each and everyone single one of these methods. Moreover, once Hubbard figured out how to do it, he scripted it all out and issued a decree that $cientologists should follow the procedures to the letter. As a result, they are able to indoctrinate new members without any need for the charismatic leader to be around. Mind control, a very potent poison indeed.

  32. Mr Wonder Says:

    This film owes a lot to the research of Steve Hassan as well as Lifton.

  33. deellymg Says:

    I am not a scientologist. I am from another group… They all operate in the same exact way. So all of which this video described has happened in my group… same candy with a different colored stick…

    Thanks for the video… I have forwarded it to our support groups. This may help others… thanks again.


  34. Nice post. Enjoyed watching it. Keep up the good work.

  41. Project: Soul Catcher vol. 2 Secrets of Cyber and Cybernetic Warfare Revealed

    About the Authors:
    The Mind Hacking Strategy Group is a consortium of conscientious scientists who report the abuses of science. ROBERT DUNCAN holds multiple degrees from Harvard University and Dartmouth College in Applied Sciences and Business. He has worked on projects for the Department of Defense, CIA and Justice Department in his career.

    About the Book:
    Volume 2 details the CIA’s practices of interrogation and cybernetic mind control in their pursuit to weaponize neuropsychology. It covers the art of bio-communication war. Human beings are complex machines but their inner workings have been deciphered. Mind control and brainwashing have been perfected in the last 60 years. Hacking computers and hacking into individual minds are similar. The 21st century will be known as the age of spiritual machines and soulless men.

    The Objective:
    During these mind control projects the handlers require a certain amount of ignorance by the individual about the topic to do their dirty work. More a person understands, the less influence they have. They have given up on subjects once they know too much. Humanity is undergoing a cataclysmic evolutionary event. Technology can be used for good or evil. These volumes of Project: Soul Catcher hope to force a technology transfer to the public sector for all its benefits by exposing the U.S.’s darkest secrets.
    “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.”

    • “Finally enough brave insiders are telling us what the hell is going on and what is planned.” – MKULTRA project
    • “The next generation needs to answer some difficult questions on what the human race and their country should become.” – A current politician
    • “An impressive integration of cybernetic and psychological warfare” – Former Colonel in the Air Force

    Reminds me of Fox News … and the rest of them realy, it’s amazing how placid Americans are!

  43. Zoe Says:

    MJB SEMINARS in Australia is using cognitive psychotherapy on unsuspecting uninformed people who pay top dollars to attend their 48 hr seminars that will “Transform your life”.(But then you need to go to another seminar, and another….
    Mitch J Behan who founded and runs these seminars and also a Travel business, delares that he is a former drug addict, drug dealer, who has spent time in prison.
    He uses pseudo science and weird spiritual flimflam to convince people they are spirits from the celestial plane who need him to teach them how to go up the 8 levels of spirituality and to have a quantum collapse so they will GET IT.
    He uses words like pertubate to describe stressing people with lack of sleep, food and drink deprivation, toilet deprivation, uncomfortable strictly controlled surroundings with locked doors and constant verbal abuse and ridicule in front of the group of participants to induce an emotional response, exhaustion,or crying in his victims.
    Then they get Equilibrated a term that represents when your will is totally broken down and he and his staff can convince you that everything you think you know emotionally about your life is WRONG! and you have to reverse it all and be grateful for everything bad that happened because you are RESPONSIBLE for everything that happened that was bad.
    You brought it on yourself.
    Once you succumb to this brainwashing technique they will tell you you have GOT IT and Mitch and all his staff will be smiling and nice to you at last and play happy music and unlock the doors etc.
    Then you are a light bearer to humanity and have to go out and drag in as many people as you can so they too can have this great gift.(If they pay a lot of money)
    Mitch admits that all the abuse and screaming and yelling at you all was deliberate to break uyou down and he did it out of love.
    Because he cares about you.
    You are not allowed to tell anyone what has happened.
    If you do, then the process wont work properly on them, because they will be expecting it.
    They wont understand you anymore until they do the seminar, because you are vibrating at a higher frequency and are on a higher spiritual level to them.
    They cant GET IT or understand until they have been through the same and gone up the spiritual levels like you have.
    I personally know several people who have had their lives messed up by this claptrap and suffered from the results of following such warped thinking.
    They now run from anyone in MJB and find they are hounded by phone calls trying to manipulate them into returning to the fold.
    They say that Mitch has said that MJB is a cult and he is the leader but they are not supposed to tell people that.

  44. Trav Says:

    Thanks for posting this, it only further proves that MJB are nothing like a cult at all. They teach people to be self reliant and resourceful, wanting quality independant lives.
