The present is out of the past and the future is upon us — brainwashing has come to America. Our society is now tormented in its efforts to deal fairly and legally with those accused of public transgressions while under the influence of brainwashing.
From the McNaghten case to the Durham rule, the alleged brainwashing of the turncoats of the Korean conflict, the Vietnam War to the Manson case, and the Hearst trial, comes the urgent requirement that laws be amended to include the effects of brainwashing upon the human mind and free will. The very subject of brainwashing is of urgent importance to the law.
Indoctrination methods, copied from the Communists, have been known to drastically change beliefs and attitudes in a comparatively short span of time. In our own experience I have seen girls from good families, following forceful coercion or skillful persuasion, resort to prostitution overnight. This is a form of human enslavement through brainwashing that our society must consider and guard against.
