Multiple Personality Disorder

Todd Hansen in the July Issue of the Ensign gave some recommendations on how to be spiritually safe while traveling alone away from our families. Thankfully, I never have to travel for my job. However, the last point Bro. Hansen made was about the harm of maintaining multiple identities. While reading this article, I had the following thoughts:

Nazi Germany experimented with terrible brainwashing and mind control experiments. These experiments involved torture, abuse, drugs, and hypnosis to fracture the personality into parts. Horrifyingly, this perverse conditioning and abuse can begin even before birth. The mind, in order to cope with the psychological and physical abuse, fractures into different personalities in order to store traumatic memory in an alternate personality that can then be repressed after the abuse stops. When these German scientists were brought over to the US via Operation Paperclip, the CIA continued these evil brainwashing practices which are referred to as the MK-Ultra and Monarch Programs.

MK-Ultra is depicted in movies like Manchurian Candidate and Bourne Identity. Using multiple personalities, a handler can activate the alternate personality and then instruct the asset to kill, steal, or perform some act of terrorism. When the task is complete, the alternate personality and all associated memories are repressed. The victim becomes amnestic to everything that happened while the alternate personality was active. This becomes important if the CIA asset were ever caught. Monarch programing has to do with the sexual exploitation, abuse and training young girls and boys. Boys Town, NE, Finishing Schools, and Child Protective Services has served to supply victims.

While all this seems absolutely revolting, I wonder if some of us live divided lives just as tortured as victims of these mind control programs? Many of us who attend church on Sunday and spend time with our families during the day but then partake of the sins of pornography, drug use, and video games every night can be even more psychologically, and spiritually sick than an MK-Ultra or Monarch victim.

Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, “Living by Scriptural Guidance,” Ensign, Nov. 2000, 17. said, “Danger lurks when we divide ourselves with expressions such as ‘my private life,’ ‘my professional life,’ or even ‘my best behavior.’ Living life in separate compartments can lead to internal conflict and exhausting tension. … Inner peace comes only as we maintain the integrity of truth in all aspects of our lives. When we covenant to follow the Lord and obey His commandments, we accept His standards in every thought, action, and deed."
