Beast of the Month - May 1997

John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten) of The Sex Pistols, "Anarchy in the UK"
Happy Beltane, folks.
And, in honor of what some would unfairly label as a "black magic" holiday (it is a pagan/wiccan fertility event, though certainly black magicians party on it), it seemed as good of a time as any to start a new feature - The Konformist Beast of the Month (Trademark), an award celebrating the top servant to the forces of darkness in this material world the previous month.
Yes, there were some good nominees for the first trophy, but this was actually a pretty easy decision to make. The winner, Dr. Louis Jolyon "Jolly" West, professor of psychiatry at UCLA, in many ways has merely culminated a lifetime of nefarious behavior in reaching this infernally climatic point. Having said that, don't think that Dr. West was given this award out of sympathy over being ignored, a la Henry Fonda's Oscar for On Golden Pond. No, like any other notoriety that Dr. West has received, it has been thoroughly earned by his special brand of despicable behavior.
First a little history of the dear doctor: Dr. West, in case you didn't know, is a psychiatrist notorious for his participation in CIA mind control experiments, including the infamous MK-Ultra project. The activities of Dr. West are rather legendary in some circles, and he is featured prominently in Acid Dreams: The CIA, LSD, and the Sixties Rebellion, by Martin A. Lee and Bruce Shlain, about the untold story behind the hippie drug culture. According to a biography courtesy of Parascope, West once injected an elephant with a lethal dosage of LSD. Then, in 1964, Dr. West examined Oswald's assassin Jack Ruby in his jail cell, and concluded that Ruby, who was claiming a right-wing cabal was responsible for JFK's murder, was paranoid and mentally ill. He placed Ruby on "happy pills", which left Ruby quite unhappy. He died of cancer two years later, after claiming he had been injected with cancerous biological material. In the seventies, West formulated plans for the Center for the Study and Reduction of Violence, originally proposed by then-Governor Ronald Reagan. West described the program as an attempt to predict occurrences of violent behavior in specific population groups. According to Dr. West, "The major known correlates of violence are sex (male), age (youthful), ethnicity (black), and urbanicity." Dr. West then discussed a wide variety of treatments, including chemical castration, psycho surgery and experimental drugs, which were to be co-ordinated with a California law enforcement program, using computer databases to track "pre-delinquent" youth for preemptive treatment, i.e. young blacks with no criminal record. The California State Legislature officially dismantled plans for the Center after information regarding the program was leaked to the press, although if you believe that ended it, you certainly are a sap. Perhaps it's best to let an expert on CIA inhuman behavior, Alex Constantine, describe what is among the worst of Dr. West's "experiments" (at least known about), performed through the Stanford Research Institute:
Apart from monitoring the health of the subjects, according to SRI spokesmen, Dr. West conducted his own experimental studies of the "phenomenology of dissociative states," or multiple personalities, at the Institute. Dr. Colin Ross, a specialist in dissociative disorders, offers that Dr. West's work for the CIA centered on the biology or personality of dissociative states. Many victims of the CIA-anchored experimentation have been left with multiple personalities induced at a young age, and it is certain that the CIA can trigger induced multiple personalities electronically from a remote source to commit any act on cue, the ultimate Manchurian Candidate.
Currently, Dr. West is on the air as a commentator on psychiatric matters on KCAL television in Los Angeles, after previously being used as a "cult expert" on stories involving the "Branch Davidians" (as they've been labeled) of Waco and the People's Temple of Jonestown, both which have CIA fingerprints all over the place. And it is under this disguise that Dr. West receives this special honor.
When the 39 "suicides" were being reported upon in Rancho Santa Fe, the korporate press brought out the usual suspects in denouncing these strange cults which are a sinister outside threat to our decent society. Leading the charge was Dr. West. "It's really ruthless to exploit people on the basis of their illnesses," he proclaimed with an air of moral disgust. "To go after people with medical problems because you know they're more vulnerable... and pull them into something that could cost them their lives is as bad as you can get." He would later pronounce, "I see them victims of a hoax. There was villainy here."
Orwell would be proud, as Jolly West knows a thing or two about exploiting ill people with medical problems and costing them their lives. For once, though, Dr. West does not lie: he is about as bad as you can get, and the korporate press' use of him as a mouthpiece shows the transparent fraudulence of their reporting. (Later, Dr. West, naturally, linked blame of the cult deaths to the internet, in a quote for a L.A. Times article titled, "Cult Targeted Web Sites for Abuse, Depression Victims".)
The book is still open on Heaven's Gate, but if it was just another CIA brainwashing experiment, there certainly wouldn't be anything new in this. And so, while his generally vile behavior is enough for him to be recognized as a demon-in-the-flesh, it is the remarkable ability to use his forked tongue and crocodile tears and be a true deceiver that makes him so worthy on this honor, as he managed to lay blame on "suicidal cults" and the all-dangerous internet for social calamities that are at least partially masterminded by Dr. West and his repulsive ilk. And for this, we salute you, Dr. West, as Beast of the Month. Congratulations, and keep up the great work, Jolly!!!
