After a lengthy description of the conspiracy to assassinate him, LaRouche wrote about brainwashing:
“What induces the victim to submit to brainwashing is his conviction that he is in the hands of an omnipresent, omiscient power which can effectively and promptly take possession of him anywhere. Thus, the world is made into a controlled environment by the victim's terror of the CIA.”
“It is technically possible for any trained operators to brainwash almost anyone of about thirty or under given appropriate circumstances. The most obvious of these circumstances is provided by a prison or mental institution, in which the selected victim is helplessly constrained within a controlled environment twenty-four hours a day, with hope of release psychologically distant in terms of the stresses which can be applied by those who control this environment.”
… omnipresent, omniscient power, under thirty years old, overstressed, in a controlled environment… this description fits so well with the daily life within the LaRouche organization that he feels the need to reassure that his organisation is not involved in any brainwashing. He writes:
“There are more restrictions upon the possibility that a private agency or group of persons could accomplish a similar result outside of a special institutional setting.”
“The nature of the actual processes of the human mind is such that brainwashing could not be effectively accomplished by private individuals or small groups within society. Only a government agency can effectively brainwash a victim.”
“The victim's sense of reality is turned inside-out. "He" or "she" (the pseudo-personality) becomes "I," and the pseudo-I now attributes the value attached to former beliefs and activities to present activities.
For example, in the near-dozen cases of NCLC, RYM, and NUWRO members conclusively known to have been brainwashed for either the CIA or LEAA, the victim characteristically accused the Labor Committees of "brainwashing" its members (a clinical impossibility), and reflected his or her own personality by attributing a profound personality reversal to me at approximately the point in time they themselves underwent brainwashing!”
So any member who expressed skepticism about brainwashing would become immediately suspect of… being brainwashed… creating so the “controlled environment” required to… brainwash people, according to LaRouche himself! It’s a mental “catch-22” situation… Indeed the victim's sense of reality is turned inside-out…
This was the beginning of the paranoia so typical of the LaRouche organization; the ultimate enemy is not the fascist Rockefellers or the CIA, the real enemy is within, within the organization, within ourselves… anybody could be brainwashed without even knowing it… and become a traitor, a defector or an assassin. And the masters in “brainwashing” are London’s Tavistock…
This atmosphere of paranoia and hysteria is comparable to that depicted in Arthur Miller‘s “The crucible” playwright whose central theme is the trial conducted by American puritans against those suspected of being possessed by the devil and doing witchcraft…
All of this anti-Tavistock campaign was supposed to prevent an Orwellian “1984” fascist nightmare:
“Tavistock CIA technology in "social control" and "brainwashing" permit the plotters to impose a 1984 version of fascism from above.”
As a matter of fact… the “turned inside-out” LaRouche organization claiming to fight the brainwashers by… brainwashing its own members has become, by the same token, the very same 1984 Orwell’s fascist nightmare it was supposed to fight!
Orwell wrote in his “1984” novel:
“But by far the more important reason for the readjustment of the past is the need to safeguard the infallibility of the Party. It is not merely that speeches, statistics and records of every kind must be constantly brought up to date in order to show that the predictions of the Party were in all cases right. It is also that no change in doctrine or in political alignment can ever be admitted.”
And when in 1976 LaRouche wrote:
"Labor Committee and allied Communist forces within the capitalist sector generally are working overnight, constantly, to bring into being a new Marxist International throughout the capitalist sector."
the next year he wrote, in a very “Orwellian 1984 way”:
Indeed Orwell wrote in ”1984”:
"I never had the conception of founding a "true Marxist" association. […] We have never been Marxists, except as regarding Marx as the highest preceding advancement of essential human knowledge. […] More profoundly, as we change we do not change."
“Thus, the Party rejects and vilifies every principle for which the Socialist movement originally stood, and it chooses to do this in the name of Socialism.”
At that point the LaRouche organization has become the Orwellian 1984 “fascist nightmare” the members were supposed to expose and combat.
Doublespeak, perpetual state of war, rewriting of the past and of course “Big Brother” aka LaRouche is watching you… Indeed as LaRouche said “the victim's sense of reality is turned inside-out”… which explains why “Marxist” activists who dedicated their lives to create a new communist international will be turned into far-right pro-capitalists (aka “higher Marxism”)! And soon its Jewish members will be turned into anti-Semites in the name of a “higher” Judaism …just like in “1984”’s doublespeak: peace meant war, freedom meant slavery etc Reality is turned inside-out…
This is also the beginning of redefining the “enemy”… It is not about the Rockefeller’s fascists anymore but the British being at the center of all possible and wild conspiracies… from drug trafficking to… putting Hitler into power, to Zionism , communism, environmentalism, rock-drug-sex counterculture, international terrorism… name it! And of course, the Tavistock Institute has a special role into this global conspiracy: they have the expertise to brainwash single individuals or entire populations via the counter culture, via cults, and… via the medias! So a LaRouchian is led to believe that it is not he but the rest of the world that is brainwashed… by the Tavistock Institute!

As Dennis King wrote in his “Lyndon LaRouche and the new American fascism”…. these brainwashing techniques “bore an uncanny resemblance to what LaRouche himself was doing to the NCLC membership (aka the LaRouche organization, note)”
