The spread of Buchman's operations into Korea is suggestive of the sort of base which may have provided the first members for Moon's zombie cult. In the Nov. 3, 1952 issue of Moral Re-Armament's MRA Information Service, there appeared an article about an island off the Korean coast near the mouth of the Natkong River, called Jinoo Do. The MRA article references the visit to the island of "an agent of the Medway Plan Foundation, an organization devoted to human rehabilitation." The Medway Plan appears to refer to a town in England in which sociological studies, first run under the rubric of Charles Madge's Mass Observations, and later incorporated under the London Tavistock Institute, were carried out. The Medway study took up the relationship of sexual morality and work, focusing on the relationship of preachers to their wives in the town of Medway.
Arriving on Jinoo Do, the Medway Plan representative found an island inhabited by Korean orphans and juvenile delinquents, placed there by the army in 1951. Under MRA supervision, the orphans had established a "democratic town" there, policed and governed by themselves, and based on Frank Buchman's precept that "human nature can be changed." Everywhere one could find the slogans of Moral Re-Armament: "Absolute Honesty," "Absolute Purity," "Absolute Unselfishness," "Absolute Love." These, incidentally, became the slogans adopted by Moon. Other slogans on this "Brave New World" in the Korean Straits read: "No Hatred—No Fear—No Greed," or "New Men—New Nations—New World," or "Jinoo Do—Principle of citizen Life."
The CIA and Moral Re-Armament
In his 1989 book, The Game Player: Confessions of the CIA's Original Political Operative, top spook Miles Copeland brags of the intelligence agency's control over both Moral Re-Armament and L. Ron Hubbard's Scientology movement. Copeland reports that he served in the 1950s as head of an agency entity known as The Political Action Staff. Under this umbrella, his assistant, Bob Mandlestam, developed an operation called "OHP," or "occultism in high places," described by Copeland as "a theory of political activism based on an impressively detailed study of ways in which leaders of the world based their judgments on one form or another of divine guidance." One of Mandlestam's projects was to "plant astrologists on certain world leaders." Another was to deploy "mystics" in the Georgetown section of Washington, D.C., home to many government figures, who would use "voodoo magic," based on rites prescribed by the CIA itself, to manipulate Congressmen.
As part of OHP, Copeland and Mandlestam began to utilize the Moral Re-Armament movement, which "gave us useful secret channels right into the minds of leaders, not only in Africa and Asia but also in Europe." After this, Copeland writes:
When Bob made similar arrangements with Scientology, ... we were on our way to having a political action capability which would make the highly expensive, largely ineffective and largely overt "covert action" of Bill Casey's CIA seem trivial by comparison. "MRA will him 'em high, and the Church of Scientology will hit 'em low!" Bob liked to boast, and he was right.
Shocking as Copeland's revelations may seem, they barely scratch the surface of the age-old practice of political manipulation by cults. We will take up that matter, below, in the discussion of Moon's theology.
Moral Re-Armament Today
Moral Re-Armament continued to have a strong presence in the U.S.A., especially student layers, up into the 1960s founding of the anti-Vietnam War movement. Despite its anti-Communist, right-wing profile, Moral Re-Armament literature even found its way into the early anti-Vietnam War movement, in which Bertrand Russell played a guiding role. In the U.S.A., the campus-touring spokesman for the anti-war movement in the 1963-64 period was Russell Stetler, a Haverford College graduate student who had studied with Bertrand Russell in London, and returned as the representative of Russell's International War Crimes Tribunal.
MRA's Agenda for Reconciliation front group has been active in Lebanon, Kenya, Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia, and elsewhere. It was behind the 1992 Clean Elections Campaign in Taiwan, a similar effort in Kenya, and one in Ghana in the May 2000 election. The Moral Re-Armament spinoff International Communications Forum held a big conference in Sarajevo, Bosnia in September-October 2000. Its U.S. headquarters are in Richmond, Virginia, where it runs an organization called Hope in the Cities. Its Gente que Avanza group, active in Latin America for more than 30 years, has trained 800 young people from 20 countries. Other fronts include Farmer's Dialogue, and a women's organization called Creators of Peace.
With the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, Moral Re-Armament launched a new front group, Foundations for Freedom, to penetrate into formerly Communist countries. In 2001, Moral Re-Armament changed it name to Initiatives of Change UK. It still holds international meetings at the Caux, Switzerland site, around the theme of reconciliation among the faiths. Tibetan Buddhism's Dalai Lama has attended twice, along with Jewish, Islamic, and Christian leaders. It continues to intervene on behalf of British grand strategy, using benign-sounding front groups to carry out devious political ends. The "role of the individual as an agent for change in an era of globalization," is a leading theme today.
5. Moonrise Over Asia
The rise of Moon's Unification Church, out of the networks of the Buchman Moral Re-Armament organization, took place in the immediate aftermath of the Korean War—in a nation still occupied by hundreds of thousands of U.S. troops, and governed by a dictatorship run from Washington. The oft-told tale that Moon was a creation of the Korean Central Intelligence Agency, and that the Moon penetration of America, beginning in the 1960s, was primarily a foreign intelligence penetration, is thus a half-truth—and a misleading one. Moon was up and down, a creation of the KCIA. But ask yourself: What was the controlling force behind the KCIA? Think before you answer, for the "obvious" here is also a trap. It was not "the CIA," as populist-minded Americans—and anti-Americans—conceive of it. Behind the popularly misused term, "the CIA," is something both more interesting, and yet less mysterious, than most conspirophiles imagine. If you truly wish to know dark secrets, seek out that historical-cultural cauldron in which the midnight potions of the Russell-Wells "No-Soul Gang" are brewed. Its intoxicating spells work every bit as potently in Asia as in the West, as we shall soon discover.
The Early Moon
Based on a 1997 profile by historian Anton Chaitkin and other sources, Moon's biography prior to becoming a mass cult leader, can be summarized thusly:
Yong Myung Mun (the name was later changed to fit a Gnostic doctrine) was born in northwestern Korea in 1920. His parents converted to a Pentecostal sect of the Presbyterian Church when he was about 10. Under North Korean Communist rule in 1946, Moon set up his own Pentecostal church, called the Jerusalem of the East (Kwang-ya). It featured shouting, faith-healing, and a Moon innovation called "blood-sharing." Based on pagan fertility rites, this was the unlimited copulation of the pastor with his female followers. On complaints from Christian churches, Moon was arrested by the North Korean police in 1946 for adultery, and again in 1948. He was tried on charges of bigamy and "social disorder," and condemned to five years of hard labor in a prison camp in Hung-nam. After serving two and a half years, he was released by advancing United Nations forces, and made his way south. He soon left his wife, and, without divorcing her, remarried and went back to holy blood-sharing.
Moon moved to Seoul, South Korea in 1954, where he set up the Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity, or Unification Church. This occurred in connection with the founding of the Asian People's Anti-Communist League, an organization in the orbit of the Frank Buchman Moral Re-Armament grouping. Moon's lawyer at the time was Robert Amory, deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency under Allen Dulles.
Moon was arrested by the Seoul police in July 1955 for indecent activities causing "social disorder." The newspaper Segae reported July 6, 1955 that dozens of upper-class and university women were sexually involved with Moon. He was arrested again, later in 1955 for his furious fornications. On Oct. 4, 1955, after intervention by intelligence agencies, Moon was absolved of all accusations and freed. There began his free and clear path to emergence as a world figure.
Sasagawa and the Japan Connection
The first Unification Church missionary, Sang Ik-Choi, left Korea on June 16, 1958 to set up operations in Japan. Specialists investigating the origins and current funding channels of the Moon operation are consistently led to the Japanese right-wing figure Ryoichi Sasagawa (1899-1995). A brief digression into the Japan connection will help to clarify the whys and wherefores of the curious rise to prominence of the Reverend Moon's sex cult.
Sasagawa was a shipping magnate in 1930s Japan, associated with the Mitsui Group, the trade and banking cartel which had always been aligned with the British factional interest in Japan. Declared a Class A war criminal (he had been an ardent fascist and regular visitor to Hitler's Germany), Sasagawa, at first, had to keep a low profile during the U.S. occupation. But his post-war fortune was rebuilt with help of Gen. William H. Draper, Jr., the anti-population-growth fanatic who founded the Draper Fund for Population Control and spent a time in occupied Japan as Undersecretary of the U.S. Army. Later, Sasagawa became honorary chairman of the Draper Fund, and was also a co-founder of the Malthusian Club of Rome with Alexander King and Aurelio Peccei. Sasagawa provided much of the official funding for the Asian People's Anti-Communist League, set up June 15-18, 1954, in Chinhae, South Korea, This then crossed over into Buchman's Moral Re-Armament networks, and later became a central part of the Moon operation.
In the late 1960s, just before his move to America, the Reverend Moon made an arrangement with Yoshio Kodama, the post-war leader of the 3-million-strong Japan Youth Federation, which formed a cornerstone of the World Anti-Communist League (WACL). Kodama had worked very closely with Sasagawa during the 1960s and 1970s. After the meeting, Kodama's lieutenant, Osami Kuboki, became Moon's chief executive for Japan, and the head of the Unification Church there. After Kodama's death in the 1980s, Moon gained increasing influence over the Japan Youth Federation.
But Kodama was also a silent partner in Japan's organized-crime ring known as the Inagaki-kai yakuza. (The yakuza, Japan's mafia gangs, are the laundry for billions of dollars in Asian drug trade cash.) One of Kodama's chief aides was arrested in Hawaii in 1991 for transporting cocaine under cover of the trading activity of the Sagawa Kyubin trucking company. The firm was run by Susumu Ishii, a founder and leader of the yakuza, until his November 1991 death. Reverend Moon's funder, Yoshio Kodama, was an investor in Ishii's trucking firm. The yakuza's dirty drug money is suspected of being the main source for the suitcases full of cash which Moon's members transport regularly into the United States to fund his enormous influence-peddling and corruption operations. The cash and gold watches, which American ministers and Congressmen routinely accept from Moon, are thus, presumably, paid for by the profits of the Asian drug trade. One might consider that, the next time a parishioner's child dies of a drug overdose.
Papa Bush's Cash Cow
The same sources helped pay for the election of current President George W. Bush. In September 1995, when he was seeking money to fund his son's political career, former President George H.W. Bush went on a speaking tour of Japan for the Women's Federation for World Peace, headed by Moon's wife, Hak-ja Han-Moon. After a Sept. 14 address by Mrs. Moon in the Tokyo Dome, former First Lady Barbara Bush declared Mrs. Moon "my sister," according to a small item that appeared the next day in the Moonies' Washington Times. In November 1996, the cash-hungry father Bush toured Argentina, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela with Reverend Moon, on a mission to launch a Spanish-language version of the Washington Times for distribution in South America, known as Tiempos del Mundo.
But the Bush family ties to Moon operations preceded all that. According to Japanese intelligence sources, Prescott Bush II ran Asian secret operations for his brother, the first President George Bush. Prescott was an adviser to the just-mentioned Sagawa Kyubin trucking firm involved in the cocaine scandal, and owned by the Moon-connected gangsters Ishii and Kodama. Prescott was also tied in to other Ishii businesses. From 1989 to 1991, he served as a $250,000-a-year consultant to Ishii's Hokusho Sangyo Co., according to U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission reports.
How Japan Became America's Enemy ...
The Japanese connection to the rise of the Moon cult is important for another reason. The presence of the Mitsui group at the center of the Moon and Buchman operations in Japan is a marker for something even more central to understanding the forces behind the Russell-Wells "no-soul gang." Again a step back in history, will make the matter clearer.
When former President Ulysses Grant visited Japan in 1879, at the conclusion of a three-year world tour, he warned the Meiji government against the treachery of the British. Great Britain was then the open enemy of patriotic Americans, and the battle between the American and the British systems the central struggle in the world. How Japan responded to this struggle would be crucial for its future. The fate of China had already been determined a few decades earlier, at a time when America was divided and weaker.
Through two Opium Wars, Britain had subjugated and humiliated China. The first Opium War began in 1839, when China banned the importation of British opium, shipped in from the Indian colony. The British intent was to create the world's largest free market in drugs by addicting the huge population of China's coastal cities. China was no match for British naval power. By the Treaty of Nanking in 1842, she was forced to surrender the ports of Canton, Shanghai, Amoy, Foochow, and Ningpo to British trade, and to cede the island city of Hong Kong entirely to Britain. But worse, China was forced to yield up her population to the scourge of the opium den. The second Opium War from 1856-58, joined in by British and French troops, ended in the Treaty of Tientsin, which forced the opening of ports from the mouth of the Yangtze River north to Manchuria.
In Japan, a pro-American faction developed, which learned the difference between the British and American systems. In 1853, between the two Opium Wars, a Japan previously closed to all foreign contact received U.S. Navy Commodore Matthew Perry, and a treaty of friendship was soon worked out. A circle of reformers grouped around the intellectual leader Yukichi Fukuzawa founded newspapers and a university to educate Japanese political layers to an understanding of the uniqueness of the United States, and argue that Japan adopt America's revolutionary system as a model.
The Meiji Restoration of 1868 overthrew the warlord-feudalist Shogunate, and returned full power to the Emperor, who was under the guidance of a faction of pro-American reformers, steeped in the writings of Alexander Hamilton and the U.S. Constitution. American System economist Erasmus Peshine Smith, the student of Lincoln's ally and economic adviser Henry Charles Carey, was dispatched to Japan by President Grant in 1871 to help guide the economic development program. After the crushing of the Satsuma rebellion in 1877, pro-American reform groups were able to abolish feudalism, nationalize land held by warrior clans, and begin large-scale industrial development.
... And How America Became Its Own Enemy
Similar processes were under way in Germany, under the leadership of American System economist Friedrich List, and in Russia with the help of such figures as the great chemist Dmitri Mendeleyev, the author of a plan for industrialization of Russia by railroad development, and the Count Sergei Witte who was allied with the Meiji group in Japan.
The promotion of the American System of economy, and the concept of a government constituted to promote the general welfare—two ideas virtually banned from American history books in the second half of the 20th Century, remained the central aim of Republican administrations, up through the British-sponsored assassination of a newly re-elected President William McKinley in 1901. (That Republican Party, as distinguished from the thing bearing that name today, was the party of Lincoln. The Democratic Party of the time, and continuing up until the breakthrough 1932 campaign of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, was the party of slavery and shareholder values, as it has tended to become again, since the disastrous Presidency of Zbigniew Brzezinski's puppet, Jimmy Carter, and the recent hegemony of the Democratic Leadership Council.)
The secret to what happened to the intellectual tradition that produced the American Revolution, Lincoln, and the post-Civil War industrialization, is summed up in this historical fact. In the last quarter of the 19th Century, America's principal allies were Germany, Japan, and Russia—the very same nations which became her principal enemies in the 20th Century. Worse yet, America became its own enemy, betraying its own history by a still-raging case of collective historical amnesia. There was no irony in it. That was precisely the result which the grandson of Palmerston ally Lord John Russell, and his lower-class sidekick, Wells, had intended.
The Japanese family cartels which tended toward a pro-British stance from an early point, were Mitsui, Sumitomo, and Shibusawa. The Mitsui banking and trading company complex had been the leading Japanese partner of Jardine Matheson and Company, the Scottish shipping firm which controlled the largest share of the British Empire monopoly in opium. Moral Re-Armament founder Frank Buchman met the Barons Mitsui and Shibusawa (then the Finance Minister) in 1915, when he travelled to Japan on his YMCA-sponsored Asian tour. Later, Buchman came to know intimately Kichizaemon Sumitomo of the Sumitomo cartel, and the entire Shibusawa banking family.
The Baron Mitsui's second son, Takasumi, came to study in England, first at Halford Mackinder's London School of Economics, and later at Magdalen College, Oxford. In 1935, Prof. B.H. Streeter, the Moral Re-Armament leader and provost of Queens College, Oxford, invited young Takasumi Mitsui to meet with Buchman. Buchman attempted to use Takasumi for a three-pronged penetration: to push for Anglo-Japanese rapprochement; to intervene into the conflict in China; and, to "bring Japan into a united front with Britain and the Axis powers for a crusade against Bolshevism," in Buchman's words.
It was exactly the geopolitical program which Haushofer had dictated to Hitler as he composed Mein Kampf. No surprise that it should coincide with the program at Oxford, since Haushofer acknowledged he had taken his geopolitical analysis—that whoever controlled the "Eurasian heartland" (Germany, Central Europe, and Russia) controlled the world—from the Coefficients' Halford Mackinder. Buchman and the Oxford Group were hardly alone in their efforts. In 1935, before Hitler turned westward, the policy of bleeding "the heartland," by engineering a confrontation between Hitler and the Soviet Union, was the prevailing policy among the British elite.
Takasumi was induced to return to Japan. "Sumi must become a peacemaker," the pious fraud Buchman intoned. The young Mitsui reached Japan in 1939, where he gave several lectures on Moral Re-Armament before businessmen's clubs, and to a captive audience of Mitsui executives. But the pro-Axis militarists who held the reins of power did not want to hear of collaboration with the British at this late date. His high connections allowed him to escape punishment by the militarists, and Takasumi was permitted to establish a school in Tokyo during the war. Despite his pro-Hitler sentiments, he was also spared punishment during the American occupation, and by 1947 had become the leader of the now widely accepted Japanese branch of Moral Re-Armament.
6. Transformation in Korea
The Korean War provided the venue for the next phase of implementation of the Russell-Wells scenario. The penetration by U.S. military and intelligence circles by that point, was the key to the operation used to create Moon. In the middle 1950s, U.S. military intelligence and the Allen Dulles-controlled CIA operations crowd were all over Korea, training and recruiting assets, and monitoring all political, social, and religious activity under the Sygman Rhee dictatorship. According to former U.S. Air Force Intelligence officer Col. Fletcher Prouty, the securely controlled environment and huge military presence made South Korea an ideal base for the "Secret Team" operations of the notorious Gen. Edward Lansdale, which ranged throughout Asia.
One key reminder of the bigger picture is necessary, before turning to the details of the recruitment and transformation of the sex deviant, who now imagines himself the Messiah.
The war in Korea had marked a decisive advance for the British Utopian influence over the United States, in many ways. President Truman's 1951 firing of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, who would not accept the "limited war" concept central to the Russell-Wells doctrine, was a marker for the growing influence of the Utopian faction in the U.S. military. After World War II, traditionalist military men had fought against the development of a Central Intelligence Agency separate from the military branch intelligence services, and lost. As the Utopians gained control, the military intelligence services as well were penetrated and corrupted into instruments of Utopian policy.
After 1945, the whole military-strategic environment was shaped by the bomb. The unnecessary dropping of the only two fission weapons in the U.S. arsenal on a Japan that was already negotiating a surrender, was the greatest triumph of the Russell-Wells faction. Just as Wells had called for in The Open Conspiracy, the demonstrated existence of a weapon too terrible to contemplate, opened the way to soliciting nations to the surrender sovereignty to a world entity. Bertrand Russell's role, from his post-war call for a pre-emptive strike against the Soviet Union, to his position in brokering relations between Kennedy and Khrushchov in the Cuban missile crisis, was central. One cannot properly make sense of any significant development in the post-war world without grasping the central influence of that Russell-Wells Utopian doctrine in shaping them.
The Rise of the Sex Deviant
For obvious reasons, every detail of Moon's turning and recruitment by Western intelligence services cannot be known. His 1955 imprisonment on sex offenses was likely the scene for the recruitment effort by American-trained Korean intelligence operatives. Some time after Moon's jailing, four Korean military officers with U.S. intelligence training joined the Moon cult. The four were later to become operatives of U.S. intelligence asset Maj. Kim Jong Pil, the founder of the KCIA and the man who installed the Park Chung Hee regime in a 1961 coup.
These four early Moonies were:
Kam Jan In (a.k.a. Steve Kim), who served as Kim's interpreter and later became KCIA station chief in Mexico City, where sources report he was instrumental in establishing connections between Moon and the drug cartels;
Hang Sang Keuk, later Korean ambassador to Norway, where he served as liaison for the Moon organization to the Captive Nations organizations of Communist East Europe.
Hang Sang Kil, who became Moon's personal secretary after serving as liaison with the U.S. Department of the Defense at Korea's Embassy in Washington; and
Col. Bo Hi Pak, who still runs Moon's U.S. operation, and was originally the link between the Korean Embassy and the U.S. National Security Agency, according to Robert Boettcher's Gifts of Deceipt.
Moon was absolved of all charges, and released from his South Korean jail cell on Oct. 4, 1955. A few days later, his Unification Church acquired a Buddhist temple at Chong-Padong in Seoul, which became its headquarters. By the end of 1955 there were 30 Unification Church centers throughout South Korea, spreading Moon's Gnostic gospel. Even so, the scandals did not subside. Segae in 1957 alleged Moon to have had orgies with 70 students.
One of Moon's early disciples, Chung Hwa Pak, broke with him, and made public charges that Moon practiced his sex rituals with, among others, six married female disciples. Moon claimed that these women were preparing the way for the virgin, who would marry him and become the True Mother. The charges were made public in the widely circulated text The Tragedy of the Six Marys, later published in Japanese. Pak later returned to Moon's payroll, and recanted his accusations.
KCIA chief Maj. Kim Jong Pil reportedly relied heavily on two important sources to fund KCIA covert operations: first, Japan's Class A War criminal, Ryoichi Sasagawa; second, Israeli slimeball Shaul Eisenberg. Eisenberg, who is at the center of more politically tainted shady business dealings than one can shake a judge's gavel at, brokered deals with the Japanese for the KCIA's Kim; he may also have been the go-between in establishing Walker Casino and resort near Seoul in 1962, which provided a money-laundering capability for covert operations.
Many of these facts come up in exposés, such as Boettcher's, and in the 1978 Fraser Committee hearings before Congress. The common error is in implying primary intent to the KCIA or even to the interests of the Moon cult itself. As we have seen, the mother lies elsewhere.
7. The Moon Lands on America
The unleashing of the Reverend Moon's Gnostic sex-cult freak show onto the streets of 1970s America only appears odd or inexplicable, if one chooses (as in deference to academic and media-approved opinions of modern history) to block out the openly stated aims of those who set up the cult in the first place: to destroy, by subversion, the unique experiment which was the American Revolution, and the intellectual tradition which produced it. Once that elementary point is grasped, all that need be explained is the changeover in tactics which took place in the 1960s.
This new phase of the Moon marked the promotion of mass insanity. Moon's missionaries came to the U.S.A. in the early to mid-1960s. Sang Ik-Choi, the first missionary to Japan, went to the U.S.A. with Yun Soo Lim, called Onni (Korean for "elder sister"). Onni was later "blessed" by Moon in a marriage to Dr. Mose Durst, whom she had converted. Together, they took charge of the Oakland Family in California, which became the most important center of Unification Church proselytism. In February 1972, with about 500 American members, Moon proposed at a Los Angeles meeting, the launching of an expanded recruitment drive based on forming mobile "witnessing teams" to tour the United States. This was the One World Crusade. Huge sums of money flowed in to set up permanent Unification Church centers in all 48 states, and to purchase a compound in Tarrytown, New York, on a property previously owned by the Bronfman family, of liquor and drug-money-laundering fame. (Rank-and-file Moonies were led to believe that their slave labor in producing wax candles, and street-corner sales of flowers and magazines actually paid for all this.) The Belvedere compound in Tarrytown became Moon's first home, when he relocated to the U.S.A. in 1972.
The One World Crusade was carried out with all-night, group brainwashing sessions, involving sleep- and food-deprivation, and use of psychedelic stimulants. After one notorious recruitment session at the New Yorker Hotel, bodies were found at the foot of the elevator shaft. This was the mad phase of the Moonie assault on America, the reason behind that all-too-familiar empty smile and vacant stare, worn by Moon's clean-cut, young street-corner zombies.
Why? Cui bono?
The Strategic Shift
The key to understanding the motivation behind this launching of mass insanity, is to recognize the important shift in the global strategic picture which had been achieved through Soviet General Secretary Khrushchov's assent to the 1963 test-ban and arms limitations agreements. For the Russell-Wells Utopians, this meant that the high rate of Western investment in scientific and technological progress, which had been required by the furious pace of the earlier arms race, could be slowed, without fear of losing everything. That had been the intent behind the U.S.-Soviet disarmament talks, initiated by the Russell-Szilard Pugwash movement in 1955. By the time of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, an essential part of that objective had been achieved.
The evolution of the Moonies into a mass cult in the late-1960s U.S.A., had been preceded by establishment of a wide range of business and influence-peddling fronts. Moon's U.S. operations began to really take off with the 1964 founding of the Korean Cultural and Freedom Foundation, by Col. Bo Hi Pak. (Moon's KCIA controller had incorporated a U.S. Unification Church earlier, but it had only proto-cells and a tiny following.) A year later, Bo Hi Pak launched the Radio Free Asia project, a transparent scam to build the coffers of the Unification Church. With backing of factions in the U.S. intelligence community, Radio Free Asia solicited millions from American anti-Communists to operate a transmitter in Korea, already paid for by the Korean government. One after another, the business and political front groups were established by figures including Col. Bo Hi Pak; Neil Salonen, Moon's first high-level American operative; and others, until the listing reached 33 single-spaced pages.
Once the decision was made to deploy the mass-scale recruitment operation onto U.S. campuses, other networks of the Russell-Wells no-soul gang lent a hand. Some of the early psychological conditioning of the Moon cultists was carried out by the Michigan-based National Training Laboratories. This was the social-engineering operation, specializing in labor relations, run under direction of the Tavistock Institute-trained Kurt Lewin and University of Pennsylvania Prof. Eric Trist.
Just as the Utopian-managed war in Korea had provided the context for the Moon recruitment, so the Vietnam War, the next of the succession of managed conflicts (held below the threshold of total war by pre-agreement among the superpowers), provided the human fodder for the Moonie recruitment in America. Most of the American Moonies were recruited out of the rock-drug-sex counterculture, deliberately introduced into the student ferment against the Vietnam War. Allen Tate Wood, for example, the prominent Moonie defector (who happens to be the grandson of the Southern Fugitives school poet Allen Tate), was a leader in the anti-war demonstrations which culminated in the burning of the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) building at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. Within a year or two, Tate Wood was lobbying Congress on behalf of continuing the war in Southeast Asia, a principal activity for Moon's zombies, working under cover of the Freedom Leadership Foundation front in the early 1970s.
While the zombies were hawking candles and roses on the streets, Moon's Freedom Leadership Foundation had set up meetings for the sex deviant with an impressive list of U.S. Senators and Congressmen. Between February and April 1973, Moon held meetings of half an hour or longer with:
Senators William Brock (R-Tenn.), James Buckley (Cons.-N.Y.), Jesse Helms (R-N.C.), Hubert Humphrey (D-Minn.), Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), and Strom Thurmond (R-S.C.); and
Representatives Philip Crane (R-Ill.), Richard Ichord (D-Mo.), Guy Vander Jagt (R-Mich.), Earl Landgrebe (R-Ind.), Trent Lott (R-Miss.), William Mailliard (R-Calif.), and Floyd Spence (R-S.C.).
The most evil aspect of it all was the intentional elimination of the rational, scientific mental outlook associated with a modern, technology-based, agro-industrial economy. Moon was not the whole of it. From 1968 on, every piece of the disparate networks of the Open Conspiracy was let loose at once. Of special note was the kookery of the Aldous Huxley/Gregory Bateson operation which had been brewing in California since Huxley's 1937 deployment to the United States. This was the origin of the drug side of the 1960s counterculture. To a youth culture terrified by the nightly news images of their peers returning home in body bags from a purposeless war, retreat into mind-altering drugs, mind-altering music, and even the mindlessness of Moon was not so strange. Another crucial piece of the operation had been hatched in New York's Institute for Social Research, which housed the emigré networks of Hungarian psycho Georg Lukac's Frankfurt School disciples. Russell's Unity of the Sciences movement formed another piece. And there were more.
The Bosch Canvas
Imagine America of the late 1960s into the 1970s, as if it were the panoramic background to a painting by Hieronymus Bosch. Think of the canvas as a whole, with its nightmarish imagery of degeneration and debauchery, and the events as they actually occurred:
the launching of the rock-drug-sex counterculture, under direction of such of Aldous Huxley's MK-ultra program disciples as Harvard's notorious psychedelic drug pushers, Richard Alpert and Timothy Leary; and, the parallel operation of stupefaction of popular music, as prescribed in the studies of Frankfurt School musicologist Theodor Adorno;
the spread of the mass environmentalist movement, funded under such auspices as the World Wildlife Fund of Britain's royal consort, Prince Philip, and the card-carrying Nazi, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands; the parallel deployment of a mass movement for world depopulation as in the promotion of the genocidal doctrines of the Club of Rome, founded by Moon collaborators Alexander King, Aurelio Peccei, and Japan's Class A war criminal Ryoichi Sasagawa;
the dumbing down of U.S. education, especially de-emphasizing serious study of the sciences and Western Classics, as described in the Rappaport report produced during Alexander King's reign at NATO's Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development;
the destruction of the principal technology driver of the 1960s U.S. economy, the Wernher von Braun-conceived Moon-Mars colonization program;
the dismantling of U.S. industrial capability, including its conventional nuclear power capability, and the eventual shutdown of the controlled thermonuclear fusion effort—all as prescribed in the Project 1980s report of the New York Council on Foreign Relations, under the heading "controlled disintegration of the U.S. economy"; and so forth.
By such means, the scientifically vectored, production-based world economy of the 1945-64 period was brought to its present state of onrushing depression collapse.
In The Time Machine, Wells' 1895 vision of the British oligarchy's utopia, the working classes have evolved (Huxley-style) into hairy, muscular, ground-hugging creatures, known as Morlochs, who do the work of production for society in underground mills. The upper classes, known as the Eloi, live their effete, airy existence on the surface above, while also serving occasionally as fresh meat for hunting parties of escaped Morlochs. To bring Wells' degraded vision up to date, merely substitute for the Morlochs' underground foundries, the exported manufacturing industries of the Third World sweatshops and maquiladoras; instead of the Eloi, think of the credit-card based consumer society at the top of which sit the now-shrinking number of idle rich in the advanced-sector nations. There, in summary, is a fair approximation of what the anti-American assault of the 1960s rock-drug-sex counterculture produced.
The rational person of good will, observing what can only be comprehended as an outbreak of mass insanity among his fellow citizens, asks himself: How is such a thing possible? The thought occurs to him that some person, or persons, must have brought about this state of affairs wilfully. For what reason, he asks, and how could such a thing be contemplated by rational men? Thus arises a paradox. Can collective madness be reasonably planned? We refer the still perplexed reader to the quotation at the opening of this article.
Now, summon this whole fantastic Bosch canvas before your mind's eye, as you think on today's purchased preachers, Presidents, and Congressmen, some so bold as to brag openly of the Moonie-supplied gold watches decorating their wrists. Yet, do not forget the even more widespread fear and corruption of a free citizenry, which has chosen to place Moon's purchased merchandise into positions of power and responsibility, and even now tolerates their continuance. Thus, look pure evil in the eye, and know, even so, that it can be defeated, provided you will fight.
8. The Moonification of the Sciences
In 1972, several busloads of members of Moon's "Oakland Family" rolled out of their Berkeley Center, with the intention of turning their cult of a few hundred adherents into a national movement. As the candle sellers hit the streets, others rented halls, printed programs, and sold tickets for the multi-city speaking tours of their "Father" Moon. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, the Russell-Wells "no-soul gang" was already working on the next big step of the Moonification of America: They would merge the cult of the Korean sex-deviant, with the networks of corrupted scientists already gathered around Bertrand Russell's Unity of Sciences movement.
The first International Conference of the Unity of Sciences (ICUS) took place at New York's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, Thanksgiving Day, 1972. There were 20 academics from 8 nations sharing the platform with Reverend Moon. Among them: Harvard's Russellite professor of philosophy, Willard V.O. Quine, and systems specialist Ervin Laszlo of the genocidal Club of Rome.
From small beginnings, the subsequent ICUS conferences grew to hundreds, and then thousands. These would become the annual Walpurgis Nacht celebrations for the ghouls and goblins of the "no-soul" gang's science establishment, many of them proudly bearing the mark of that discredited Nobel Prize committee, which had long since become an instrument of the Russell-Wells conspiracy. Cash and entertainment was provided by Moon, the Mephistopheles of Poontang himself, who would also deliver a personal statement of greetings to each conference.
Eugenics and the Super Robot
Moon's third Unity of Sciences conference, in 1974, took place at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London. The Chancellor of Cambridge University, Edgar Douglas Lord Adrian, presided. Lord Adrian was a Nobel Laureate, and aging leader of the eugenics movement (as Wellsian biology had been called before the Nazi crimes gave the term a bad name). His researches on the passage of nerve impulses across the synapse marked the early phase of what was to become the Open Conspiracy's two-pronged program for science: to modify man, and create the super-robot "thinking machine."
The fourth Unity of Sciences conference, back in New York, was keynoted by Sir John Eccles. Eccles had learned his neuroscience from Lord Adrian's partner Charles Sherrington (the two shared the 1932 Nobel Prize for physiology). Eccles then shared the 1963 Nobel Prize for physiology with Andrew Huxley, the third generation from the Thomas Huxley who had described the relationship of mind to body, as that of a bell to an alarm clock. Eccles and the younger Huxley attempted to establish old Huxley's thesis, by researching the chemical basis of the action potential of the nerve impulse.
The Huxley view of the brain became the central topic at the 1976 conference, in Washington, D.C., where prominent neuroscientists joined Sir Eccles, that year's conference chairman, to debate the brain-mind problem: Which way to establish Huxley's hoax that the mind is merely a machine?
Some argued for a physiological approach: "The problems of higher brain functions are very much involved in the question of the unity of the sciences, if the ultimate aim is that the brain should understand the brain," Dr. H. Hyden, Director of the Institute of Neurobiology at the University of Göteborg, said. Others called for a mathematical model: "What is needed is not a detailed understanding of the physiology of the brain, but a form of statistical mechanics that prescribes the properties of a mechanism capable of assimilating information from outside itself and performing logical transformation to that information before generating motor output," argued Dr. J.W.S. Pringle from Merton College, Oxford.
Also at the fourth conference in New York, Nobel physicist Eugene Wigner made his first of many appearances. Wigner was an old player in the Russell-Wells nexus, a lifelong friend of Dr. "Strangelove" Leo Szilard. Wigner soon became a regular at Moon's affairs, along with his former student Alvin Weinberg, the physics incompetent who served as Director of Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Technology Bad, Genocide Good
At the 1976 conference, in Washington, D.C., the co-founder of the Club of Rome, Sir Alexander King, made his first appearance with Moon, to speak against the "ugly manifestations of technology." Now, there were 600 scientists and academics, from 50 countries, in attendance.
Recall the second point of Wells' program for the Open Conspiracy: "the supreme importance of population control in human biology and the possibility it affords us of a release from the pressure of the struggle for existence...." This was the purpose of the genocidal Club of Rome, whose propaganda provided the backdrop for the 1970s de-industrialization of the U.S.A. and Western Europe. If people could accept "postponing their immediate ambitions and gratifications of immediate desires at least to the extent of providing a liveable world for their children and grandchildren ... it would at least provide a breathing space," King said in 1976. Today's children and grandchildren can see what they got. The King of genocide was to attend and chair many subsequent ICUS conferences.
At the 14th conference, in Houston, free-enterprise economic guru Friedrich von Hayek received the Founder's Award from a Moon stand-in (the Reverend was still in prison on tax evasion charges). That one was chaired by Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Alvin Weinberg, the student of Wigner. Von Hayek kept coming back, bringing with him the Conservative Revolution crowd of the American Enterprise Institute, the Potomac Organization, and others. At the 15th conference, a major theme was unity of religions. Discussion papers included one on a favorite topic of Moon: a piece by a comparative religion expert arguing that phallus cults are simply a form of "worship of the principle of life."
So, the wide net of the Open Conspiracy drew tighter.
Where It Came From
The Unity of Sciences movement had been founded in New York City in the mid-1930s, by a group of admirers of Bertrand Russell among the faculty of Columbia and New York Universities. It drew its philosophical fire from Russell's discredited attempt at a utopian formal logic, the Principia Mathematica, and a related offshoot of German philosophical degeneracy, the Vienna Circle of logical-positivism. In the final analysis, the distinction between those doctrines, and what Moon considered to be his most profound discovery ("Why didn't you feel they [your feces] were dirty? Because that's a part of your body.") is a fine one.
It all went back to Thomas Huxley's basic teaching, itself the derivate of a long chain of philosophical decay dating back to Aristotle. The unifying theme was the denial of the nobility of man, as expressed in the provable power of the human mind to create and discover new ideas. For the "no-soul" gang, there is no distinction of man from the beast, nor even from inorganic matter. There is, thus, no soul. To maintain such a view, creative reason must be denied. The mind must be shown to be merely a formal-logical processor, not different from a digital computer. The method of knowing the world, is reduced to analysis of sensory data received at the nerve endings.
The logical-positivist version of the doctrine had been described most nakedly by the Austrian failure of a physicist, Ernst Mach. In his 1886 The Analysis of Sensations, and the Relation of the Physical to the Psychical, Mach described his philosophical epiphany at the age of 17. He had been studying Kant's tortured philosophy, when he suddenly saw ... something:
On a bright summer day in the open air, the world with my ego suddenly appeared to me as one coherent mass of sensations, only more strongly coherent in the ego.
Leaders of the Unity of Science grouping in New York, all members or sympathizers of Trotskyist political groupings, included Ernest Nagel, Sidney Hook, and Albert Wohlstetter (later to achieve fame as the mentor of America's leading Chicken-hawk, Defense Policy Board Chairman Richard Perle). John Dewey, the so-called education reformer most responsible for the present dumbing down of U.S. education, was also prominently associated with the group. Soon, members of the Vienna Circle in flight from Hitler, began arriving in New York. Among them were Rudolf Carnap, Hans Reichenbach, and the man who coined the term Unity of Science, Otto Neurath.
Bertrand Russell visited New York in 1936, on his way to a two-year teaching assignment at the University of Chicago, and met with the members of the Unity of Sciences group. Russell took the movement with him to Robert M. Hutchins' University of Chicago. It grew to national intellectual prominence in 1938, with a well-publicized conference at the University of Pennsylvania, attended by Russell, and followed shortly thereafter by another affair at Harvard.
Soon, the method of Unified Science would take over the teaching of science and mathematics, first in the U.S.A., then the rest of the world. A project called the International Encyclopedia of Unified Science, run out of the University of Chicago, published a multivolume series, of which Thomas Kuhn's wretched piece of intellectual dishonesty, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions is the best known. Neurath was the editor-in-chief for the encyclopedia. Rudolf Carnap, another Viennese refugee, and Charles Morris, both of whom frequented Russell's seminar at Chicago, were the associate editors. The advisory committee for the project included Copenhagen school physicist Niels Bohr, John Dewey, and the devil's orphan, Bertrand Russell himself.
Postscript: A Note on Moon's 'Theology'
Moon's is a Gnostic doctrine, not of his own invention. The method of propagating cults, as a means of maintaining subject populations under the rule of an imperial power, goes back at least as far, in known history, as the Babylonian Empire. The Romans learned it from the high priests of the East, whence it passed along, by way of Byzantium, to Venice, the leading maritime power up to the 17th Century. From Venice, it penetrated into England, and eventually became a standard piece in the repertory of the British Empire's intelligence services.
The specific cult doctrine known as Gnosticism came to the Hellenic world by way of the Persian domination of Mesopotamia. It originated as a form of mystery worship of astronomical deities, including a father (or "original man") and great mother god, sometimes Venus, or, in an Egyptian-derived variant, Isis (Sirius). The number seven has mystical significance as the number of the five visible planets, plus the Sun and Moon.
In the form of the Gnostic heresy deployed against early Christianity, the primal or original man, becomes Christ. In some versions, such as that presented in the popular book, Holy Blood, Holy Grail, Christ did not die on the cross, but married Mary Magdalen, migrated to Europe, and had children, who became the British ruling family by way of d'Anjou and Plantagenet lineage. This published hoax is a variant on the form of British Israelism believed by many members of the British elite today. In another common variant, the actual Jews are thought to be the children of Eve's copulation with Satan (the serpent); the other descendants of Adam allegedly went elsewhere. In other versions, Christ did not marry, which is, itself, alleged to be an error.
