A long thread of sociological research documents the existence of a dominant ruling class in the US that sets policy and determines national political priorities.
The American ruling class is complex and inter-competitive, maintaining itself through interacting families of high social standing with similar life styles, corporate affiliations, and memberships in elite social clubs and private schools.
This American ruling class is self-perpetuating, maintaining its influence through policy-making institutions such as the National Manufacturing Association, National Chamber of Commerce, Business Council, Business Roundtable, Conference Board, American Enterprise Institute, Council on Foreign Relations and other business-centered policy groups. Wright Mills, in his 1956 book The Power Elite, documents how World War II solidified a trinity of power in the US, comprised of corporate, military and government elites in a centralized power structure motivated by class interests and working in unison through "higher circles" of contact and agreement.
Mills described how the power elite were those “who decide whatever is decided” of major consequence.
We recognize the imperative need for this development.
Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications.
Through the use of the psychological understanding of the human being as a social animal and the ability to manipulate a subject’s environment through isolation, drugs and hypnosis, US funded scientists have long searched for better means of controlling human behavior.To establish historical precedent in the US for such acts, we document long-term human rights and freedom of thought violations by US military/intelligence organizations.Additionally, we explore contemporary evidence of on-going government research in EMF weapons technologies and examine the potentialities of continuing human rights abuses.Our independence was founded on the understanding that all men and women are recognized by this nation as having innate rights derived by their humanity.Likewise, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, created by the United Nations in 1948, signed and ratified by the US Congress, specifies in its preamble that “recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.” The Universal Declaration of Human Rights has been a guide for international law for most of six decades, and as such binds the United States to its general principles.Article 10 states that “everyone is entitled to full equality, to a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against him,” and Article 5 specifically prohibits torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.Both of these basic human rights have been superceded by the passage the of Military Commissions Act of 2006.The new official US policy is that torture and suspension of due process are acceptable for anyone the president deems to be a terrorist or supporter.This act is the overt denial of the inalienable rights of human beings propagated in our Declaration of Independence and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.This research has included the use of wireless directed electromagnetic energy under the heading of “Information Warfare” and “Non Lethal Weapons.” New technological capabilities have been developed in black budget projects over the last few decades— including the ability to influence human emotion, disrupt thought, and present excruciating pain through the manipulation of magnetic fields.The US military and intelligence agencies have at their disposal frightful new weapons, weapons that have likely already been covertly used and/or tested on humans, both here and abroad, and which could be directed against the public in the event of mass protests or civil disturbance. To believe in rights for some and not others is a denial of the humanness of people worldwide. Bush did with the signing of the Military Commission Act of 2006.
