The Paranoid’s Dream

“The ideal … is the paranoid’s dream, a method so smooth that no one will know his behavior is being manipulated and against which no resistance is therefore possible … There is no longer a set of impositions which he can regard as unjust or capricious and against which he can dream of rebelling. To entertain such dreams would be madness. Gradually, even the ability to imagine alternatives begins to fade. This is, after all, not only the best of all possible worlds; it is the only one.”

Peter Schrag, Mind Control, 1978
