A lecture by Maj. William Mayer.
The Korean War was the first time in history that American prisoners never tried to escape – in spite of the fact that there were few guards and no prison walls. Most of them collaborated with their captors and informed on each other. They had been programmed into such apathy and distrust that they lost the capacity to resist. These same techniques are now being used against us all, not by a foreign enemy, but by our own institutions. The goal is a passive population incapable of resisting authority. 82 min.
