"Breaking Men's Minds: Behavior Control and Human Experimentation at the FederalPrison in Marion” - Eddie Griffin:
"Behavior modification at Marion consists of a manifold of four techniques:
1) Dr. Edgar H.Schein's brainwashing methodology;
2)Skinnerian operant conditioning;
3) Dr.Levinson's sensory deprivation design (i.e.Control Unit); and
4) chemotherapy and drug therapy.
And, as I will point out, the use of these
techniques, the way they are disguised behind
pseudonyms and under the philosophical rhetoric
of correction, and even their modus operandi,
violate the Nuremburg Code,
the United Nations' Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners,
the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,
the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights,
the Department of Health, Education and Welfare policy on human experimentation,
and the First, Sixth and Eighth Amendments to the United States Constitution."
I was being hit..hard, and when I wrote this on the computer it lessened. After I posted it the activity ceased.
