Joost Abraham Maurits Meerloo (March 14, 1903 â November 17, 1976) was a Dutch Doctor of Medicine and psychoanalyst. Born as Abraham Maurits 'Bram' Meerloo in The Hague, Netherlands, he came to United States in 1946, was naturalized in 1950, and resumed Dutch citizenship in 1972. Dr. Meerloo was a practicing psychiatrist for over forty years. He did staff psychiatric work in Holland and worked as a general practitioner until 1942 under Nazi occupation, when he assumed the name Joost to fool the occupying forces and in 1942 fled to England (after barely eluding death at the hands of the Germans). He was chief of the Psychological Department of the Dutch Army-in-Exile in England. After the war he served as High Commissioner for Welfare in Holland, and was an advisor to UNRRA and SHAEF. An American citizen since 1950, Dr. Meerloo was a member of the faculty at Columbia University and Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the New York School of Psychiatry. He was the author of many books, including Rape of the Mind, the classic work on brainwashing, Conversation and Communication, and Hidden Communion. He was the son of Bernard and Anna (Benjamins) Meerloo. He married Louisa Betty Duits (a physical therapist), May 7, 1948. Education: University of Leiden, M.D., 1927; University of Utrecht, Ph.D., 1932. Meerloo specialized in the area of thought control techniques used by totalitarian regimes. ================================== It is the year 2008. The presidency of the United States has, for the first time, been captured by a non - U.S. citizen through the illegal use of mass hypnosis techniques. As with Adolph Hitler in the 1930s, only with a much more sophisticated manner and use of mass media, mob hypnosis became a tool in dragging an entire nation toward destruction by corporate fascism. As of 2010, it appears that the greatest potential for destruction and misery may have passed for us. But the danger is still present. The resulting costs to the citizens of this country have been colossal, and far greater disaster only narrowly averted for now. It is critical that future generations remember the destructive potential that lay in those who seek to exploit weakness within the human mind. It is for this reason this book is preserved. The temptation for similar misuse in the future is too great; and there is no doubt in my mind, that the persons behind the 2008 fraud or their heirs will try for a coup against the U.S. again. The people of the U.S. are, I believe, good-hearted. Only through a deceitful bending of their wills, and through mass deception, can they be made slaves in supporting the perpetration of evil in the world. The mass media have been mainly corrupted to the core, and have themselves (at least for a time) become mesmerized dupes in support of a momentary American decline into Fascist barbarism. So many of them are ignorant fools, with self-interest foremost in their hearts in the best of times. The mass media cannot be trusted. Therefore it is incumbent upon you, dear reader, to take the task of education upon yourselves. You must pass this information along to many others, and they to still moreÃ¢Â¦ or our freedom, once completely stolen, may become lost forever.
