There is a documentary on Netflix called The Keepers I’ve been watching this week. It’s about the murder of a nun in Baltimore. She was killed because she was going to take allegations of sexual abuse by a priest to the police.
This is not a new story. It’s now widely known that the Catholic Church harbors pedophile priests who have preyed on thousands of victims for decades. These priestly predators have been systematically protected by one of the most powerful religious institutions on earth.
For me, the documentary has additional relevance. Sexual abuse by people in power is not just about the sexual gratification of sexual predators. It’s also about control and understanding how the mind reacts to trauma.
Nazi scientists were deeply involved in researching this aspect of mind control. After WWII, thanks to evil monsters like the Dulles Brothers, this research continued under the auspices of programs like MK-Ultra. The reluctance of Americans to acknowledge that this occurred in their own country, with their own intelligence agencies, doesn’t make it not true.
I’ve recently come into contact with a survivor who experienced significant trauma at the hands of a medical professional back in the 70’s. She didn’t start recovering her memories of this trauma until the 80’s, years after the abuse occurred. I’ve looked into aspects of her story, and it checks out. Unfortunately I can’t say any more than that at this point.
I wish people understood what this country has become. Americans like to think of this country as the beacon of liberty and democracy for the world, the shining city on the hill, but it’s a lie–a hollow myth kept alive through ignorant belief. The harsh reality is that after WWII, the worst aspects of Nazi Germany were absorbed by the American power structure, and further developed to maintain power and control, not just over the US population, but to exert power and control as far as possible.
I don’t know if this dark force can be stopped. The evil has metastasized. The enemy cloaks itself in the American flag and smiles as it shakes your hand. Wake up before it’s too late.
