The photograph, taken at last summer's East Berlin World Youth Festival, shows Labor Committee member Konstantin George seated next to a professed official of the German Democratic Republic's Ministry of State Security, Berger. The location of George's seat is notable: in front of the Cuban delegation (shown), adjoining the main reviewing section (see microphone in foreground). Although this photograph is only one of numerous pieces of tangible evidence proving that most of George's "brainwashing" (programmed behavioral modification) was performed in East Berlin at a location that credibly passes for a "safe house" there, a growing accumulation of evidence almost conclusively indicates that the entire "brainwashing" job -- in Cologne, Duesseldorf, and probably four NATO bases, as well as East Berlin -- was conducted exclusively by a CIA-NATO team under CIA direction using British programming techniques. At the same time, there is no doubt that Berger, together with psychiatrist Barbara Peper, was a leading member of the resident East Berlin brainwashing team...which raises interesting speculations concerning Berger's present state of health. The first half of this special double issue presents a clear picture of brainwashing from THIS three points of view. First, in the editorial ROCKEFELLER'S 1984 PLOT by L. Marcus, the topic methods. of brainwashing The thorough isunderstanding presented; theof cases, the Christopher and the analysis White brainwashing of the motives led toanda IISSUEI decisive tactical understanding of Rockefeller's game plan. The second point of view is that of a victim, Christopher White. Mr. White, in ON THE TRACK OF MY ASSASSINS, presents a description of his brainwashing and torture, and its implications. Mr. White, in coming to grips with his brainwashing, motivates Operation Nuremburg, the indictment of today's Nuremburg criminals. The third point of view, COERCIVE PSYCHOLOGY: CAPITALISM'S MONSTER SCIENCE, by Carol Menzel, is a comprehensive report on brainwashing, behavior modification, psychosurgery, and other torturous methods of mind control, and details the leading perpetrators of these atrocities upon which Rockefeller and his cohorts depend to install a world fascist order. ONE HUNDRED YEARS TOWARD INCEST by Vivian Freyre is the translation of an article first published in the Boletin Internacional (published by the Latin American Labor Committee). This article analyzes Gabriel Garcia Marquez's book, One Hundred Years of Solitude as both highly insightful into the problems of Latin Ideology, and at the same time a case in point of those problems. Finally we include THE MIRACLES AND MARTYRDOM OF SAINT ANTONIO GRAMSCl by Anna Varga, a history and analysis of anarcho-syndicalism in Italy, and its roots in the Italian National Ideology; an ideology based on bestial and degrading childrearing practices.

This is the first definitive presentation of the background to the current Rockefeller-directed Anglo-American fascist strategy. LATIN AMERICA, an issue featuring an analysis and recommendations on the prospects for socialist organizing under the shadow of the Brazilian "miracle", presents a program around which to realize such prospects.
oundary line at which the clinical diagnosis of "extreme coercive influence" ends and the diagnosis of "brainwashing" begins. Brainwashing, as we use the term here, signifies a qualitative change in the mental processes of an individual, as precise as the distinction between mere neurosis and a hardened paranoid-schizophrenic condition. In the neurotic individual, or in the instance of the person still fitting the diagnosis of "extreme coercive influence," the individual's inner sense of self, his sense Editorial: of "I-hess," controls his external or socially-manifest behavior through a mechanism of adjustment and disguise we term the "persona."
