During the Korean War, the theories of mind control and brainwashing were developed to control the prisoners of the war. Mind control is a theory that human subjects can be programmed in a way that causes an inability to think independently or freely. Various scholars like Robert J Lifton, Kathleen Taylor, Stanley A Deetz and Robert Cialdini have proposed their theory regarding it.
When it comes to Media, the human mind could be controlled to think in a certain direction by Agenda setting and Framing. In 1999, the forensic psychologist Dick Anthony revealed that the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) invented damning brainwashing techniques.
In 1945, just after the second World War, the United States government hired many Nazi scientists (war criminals) to performed an experiment on how to control the human mind. The project was code-named Operation Paperclip.
In the 1950s, the CIA and the Defense Department conducted secret research codenamed MKULTRA. The project was later renamed Project ARTICHOKE. In 2013, the BBC published an article titled “Are we close to making human ‘mind control’ a reality?” In the article, it was said that Rajesh Rao, a researcher at the University of Washington, had succeeded in playing a computer game with his mind without using any physical controllers.
