MK-ULTRA used psychoactive drugs, electroshock, sensory deprivation, and other torture modalities to turn the unwitting test subject’s psyche into mush and reconstitute it into a malleable control panel.

Instead of shelving this crime against humanity, the US Empire retooled it for mass consumption. MK-ULTRA never ended. It just went mainstream.
