    Programmed to Kill

    In my investigation of MK ULTRA, I've found another well documented source:

    "Programmed to Kill" by Dave McGowan

    https://www.amazon.com/Programmed-Ki...+david+mcgowan

    The specter of the marauding serial killer has become a relatively common feature on the American landscape. Reactions to these modern-day monsters range from revulsion to morbid fascination-fascination that is either fed by, or a product of, the saturation coverage provided by print and broadcast media, along with a dizzying array of books, documentary films, websites, and "Movies of the Week". The prevalence in Western culture of images of serial killers (and mass murderers) has created in the public mind a consensus view of what a serial killer is. Most people are aware, to some degree, of the classic serial killer 'profile.' But what if there is a much different 'profile'-one that has not received much media attention? In Programmed to Kill, acclaimed and always controversial author David McGowan takes a fresh look at the lives of many of America's most notorious accused murderers, focusing on the largely hidden patterns that suggest that there may be more to the average serial killer story than meets the eye. Think you know everything there is to know about serial killers? Or is it possible that sometimes what everyone 'knows' to be true isn't really true at all?

    What about 'life is like a mirror" or "I am the world and the world is me"?

    What about the death penalty? Is this not murder, an eye for an eye, making us all as bad as the serial killer, although we would deny such? What is society producing? We are all part of that, so I am the world and the world is me. Circumstances decide the path minds take. There, but for grace, go I.

    The point of all this is the serial killers are fabricated by the CIA and their leash holders, to install fear among us.

    The “killers” are like a gun, loaded and used to kill others by the deep state.
