Hi Chimpkin. I've not read all that, some of it looks very much like spurious nonsense to me. The brainwashing techniques that you are interested as the OP is the deliberate breaking and reconditioning of a mind a la KGB. This is really hardcore psychiatry - psychiatry as a weapon against the person or the state. " You are number 6". "I am not a number, I am a free man....", >silence< "Haaaahahhhahhhaha!"
