What is “MindWar?”
I’ve changed the name of my Substack to match my podcast. Here’s why.
“MindWar” is a term coined by Temple of Set founder Michael Aquino and QAnon propagandist Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Paul Vallely in a 1980 paper called “From PSYOP to MindWar.”
I will write a longer piece about this, but this is an incredibly important artifact. It describes, notwithstanding a lot of occult references and impossible pseudoscience, precisely what is happening to all of us right now.
MindWar is about attacking the target from the inside out:
Strategic MindWar must begin the moment war is considered to be inevitable. It must seek out the attention of the enemy nation through every available medium, and it must strike at the nation’s potential soldiers before they put on their uniforms. It is in their homes and their communities that they are most vulnerable to MindWar. Was the United States defeated in the jungles of Vietnam, or was it defeated in the streets of American cities?
Over 40 years ago, Aquino and Vallely knew that propaganda needed to surround the target through “electronic media.”
To this end MindWar must be strategic in emphasis, with tactical applications playing a reinforcing, supplementary role. In its strategic context, MindWar must reach out to friends, enemies, and neutrals alike across the globe - neither through primitive “battlefield” leaflets and loudspeakers of PSYOP nor through the weak, imprecise, and narrow effort of psychotronics - but through the media possessed by the United States which have the capabilities to reach virtually all people on the face of the Earth.
