Brain Washing

During predominantly the 1950s the level of hysteria was such and the worship of science such that there really were people who thought you could some how fundamentally alter the mind of a person. The idea that with drugs or/and strict control of the environment i.e. sensory deprivation or electric shocks or pain some how you could break a person down and then rebuild them any how you liked. Although individuals involved in this work liked to think of themselves as scientists I am not sure that they came across a great deal that was new. In the end of the day punishment and reward changes behaviour and even attitude and perhaps it is as simple and crude as that. Anyway here is a little on the subject.
