"But in this same epoch human beings will have to battle against attacks of the Luciferic and Ahrimanic [Satanic] powers that will be stronger than those launched in the days of Greek and Roman culture. Again in this later epoch the aim of the Luciferic and Ahrimanic powers is to alienate the souls of men from earthly life on the one hand, and on the other so to mechanize earthly life itself, TO MAKE ITS OUTER FORM SO ENTIRELY MECHANISTIC, that it would be impossible for the ego of man to live in the social order of the Earth. He would therefore take leave of it to enter a life apart from the Earth upon a separate planet." [the Eighth Sphere].

"This network is designed, fundamentally, to maintain class rule, to whatever level of viciousness demanded by capitalist economic necessity, by means of mass persuasive techniques capable of the irreversible destruction of the creativity of the working class and the re-shaping of workers' behavior into the appropriate MACHINE-LIKE PATTERNS, without the development of new ideological forms such as fascism. Since the 1930's, John Rees and the small circle of psychiatrists around him, with Rockefeller money, had consciously developed that capability, and, by 1946, had sold, literally, that capability and the growing network to implement it to the Rockefeller faction of American capital."

I didn't notice the phrase "machine-like patterns" when I prepared this article for The Campaigner Unbound, or I would have already pointed out this stunning correlation between the 8th Sphere agenda revealed by Rudolf Steiner and the Reesian agenda exposed by LaRouche and on display particularly at Guantanamo. This Reesian war on the mind takes other forms, including "political correctness" which is a more subtle form of brainwashing. A prime example of this is the insistence that we behave as if excess CO2 is causing global warming, despite the lack of any good evidence that global warming is occurring.
