I doubt two parts:
1. often good, well-meaning people
2. honestly believe that they know best
I think that some groups involved with the 9-11 tragedy knew perfectly
that this was a secure way of raping the minds w/o much resistance. It
would be interesting to check the groups that have been studying mind
manipulation and mind control methods, either corporations or governmental.
Notice that I say "involved", i.e., no reference to cause or
consequence. A safe way to determine links when cunningness is
involved is to look for benefitted parties.
