The Systematic Steps for Brainwashing Americans. (Part #4) Topic: Where does the word brainwashing come from? Today Brannon reads from a new report he found from the 1950s by Edward Hunter who worked as a propaganda specialist for the Office of Strategic Services which is the predecessor to the CIA. Mr. Hunter explains how the communist Chinese created the word brainwashing and also referred to it as heart washing. Brannon explains why the word heart washing is a very accurate description describing a spiritual practice that Mr. Hunter even described as being similar to witchcraft. Indeed witchcraft is an accurate description since drugs and/or hypnosis is often used in brainwashing. The word pharmakeia is used in the Bible and describes the use of medicine, drugs or spells. Pharmakeia is the word from which we get pharmaceutical. Brannon explains how pharmaceuticals are used to numb the conscience of millions of Americans and thus open them up to heart washing or brainwashing. Topic: We take your calls.
