Zen van Nihil, Chief Executive Officer, Utopian Social Engineer Director, Ozymandias Organization.
“Social engineering is a school of political science whereby governments or private groups influence the acceptance or rejection of individual behaviors on a large scale, through passage of laws or creation of incentives/dissentives. Human efforts to create a better, or perhaps perfect society are called utopianism.”

“My name is Zen van Nihil. I am the Director of the Freelance Utopian Social Engineering Enclave known as the Ozymandias Organization. We are small and by that, I mean not many work for me at a time, or for that matter, know they are working for me. My positions are Chief Executive Propaganda Engineer, Mastermind of Mass Media, Architect of Thought, Executive Mentalist-Futurist on a Global Scale, and Chief Executive Officer of the Ozymandias Organization. Look upon my sole competition, RAND Corp, and Breathe Air.”
I am an outspoken Egalitarian Humanist. I agree with the core Feminist belief of Gender Equality but I don’t call myself a Feminist but a Human being who believes in Social Equality for all of Humanity. I am a Philosophical Libertarian, Utilitarian, and Nietzschean Buddhist.
The Zeitgeist of Zen:
Modern Third Wave Feminism is a Secular Religion created through Social Engineering to Pacify the Population for New Malthusian Practices
Feminism is Not Egalitarianism
Among Feminist Schools of Thought such as: Cultural, Liberal, to the dreaded Radical School of Feminism. It is the Radical School of Feminism that is Third Wave Feminism. Among Feminist Thinkers who define Feminism as Social, Movement, Sociological Study, Philosophy; it is many types of ideology that create a Secular Religion in Third Wave Feminism. The most influential figure who heralded this Secular Religion is Gloria Steinem, an ousted CHAOS Operative of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Domestic Operations Division. The dawn of Third Wave Feminism was the beginning of Radicalization of Feminism as the Radical School comprised the majority of Feminists. I, a vehement Watchdog of the Power Elite on a global level of shady government deals and operations, MKUltra Intelligence Project to what I have gathered is public domain and common knowledge to an extent but from digging through documents with the Collective found a treasure trove revealing that Social Engineering had been mastered to an extent. Common knowledge caveats are that the CIA had started the Counter-Culture movement, introduced LSD to the Hippies of the 1960’s (Hard Evidence: “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test,” by Tom Wolfe). All proponents of LSD in the Counterculture Movement of the 1960’s were introduced by MKULTRA CIA Operatives, notably Alfred Matthew Hubbard. MKUltra was mastered for the art of societal conditioning and engineering of the population. In the Intelligence Community, it is not called,“Brainwashing,” it is called “Psychological Warfare.” A Intelligence term for a “Interrogation” is an “Interview,” an “Advanced Interrogations Specialist” is called a “Senior Interviewer.”
Numerous Counter-Culture Movements had agents within them, this is known as Operation CHAOS which is the parent program to Project RESISTANCE today. Chaos and Resistance are CIA Domestic Intelligence programs within the United States, they employ Elite Surveyors, Infiltrators, Natural Born Leaders, and Jackals of All Trade as Agents with the mission goal to infiltrate, observe, subvert, misguide, undermine, and ultimately seize control of any Social Movement as the leader. The most successful Social Engineer and Chaos Operative is Leading Feminist Thinker, Gloria Steinem. I stumbled upon an interview of Gloria Steinem working for the CIA and her methodology in the Women’s Rights Movement during Second Wave Feminism. After a thorough investigation involving observation, research, and collecting data as a Social Scientist. My revelation where my hypothesis became theory that Modern Third Wave Feminism is a tool for Social Engineering our Society with a Secularized Religion came as I watched a highly-recommendable interview of Camille Paglia, “Later On with Bill Costas,” (1992).
Camille Paglia criticized Gloria Steinem in her “School of Feminism” which Gloria Steinem School assumed control of Modern Third Wave Feminism to escalate it to Secularized Religion, or as the British journalist, technology editor for Breitbart News, entrepreneur, and public speaker Milo Yiannopoulos would call Modern Third Wave Feminism, “Social Cancer.” I began to realize the Truth of what most know as Modern Third Wave Feminism which is a Secularized Religion spawned by Social Engineers. A True Feminist known as Camille Paglia revealed to me what I now know as something much greater in design for this is where I stop right now and come out as Illuminati Confirmed.
This is where I become serious in my confessional which is why my Facebook has only existed since September 2014. I worked as a Social Engineer in the 2016 Presidential Election as the originator of memes, working every side of marketing, aligning every platform of social media, endless campaigning. I know Modern Third Wave Feminism is Social Engineering for I am a Social Scientist who is a Social Engineer and Social Theorist. I use the Scientific Method for my Social Engineering, which is my applied social science delving into the realm of the political. You know what they say, “Everything is politics.” 2010 was the emergence of this Cultural-Marxist Social Engineering of Modern Third Wave Feminism but it only resulted in the cacophony known as the Western Cultural Revolution.
I am the Grey Hat Social Engineer Executive Director of the Western Cultural Revolution through Mass Media or where it started, Tumblr. The Tumblrites, the Special Snowflakes, the SJWs, I cannot apologize enough for creating that volatile ideology in that echo chamber, I did it as a joke, I apologize. I’ve had thousands of Tumblr pages where I created pseudo-identities and labeled these people with only the most compartmentalizing attributes a person could have making their individuality a Collectivist Hivemind of Cognitive Dissonance who in sum would be Walking Oxymorons if they existed.
You see, I suffer from a well-managed disorder that the best Doctors of Psychology can’t figure out if it’s Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, Both, or Neither but still Definitely Something. I seem to suffer from something that appears like those prior disorders but is truly the strangest case of Synesthesia that no human being has had quite like me. Oh yeah, and I’m a Machiavellian whose moral compass is Chaotic Good for the Trends justify the Memes is one of my sayings in being a Utopian Social Engineer by master trade. I generally work alone, sometimes with others, they generally aren’t aware of the grand design behind my independent non-profit Utopian Social Engineering Firm, the Ozymandias Organization. My only competition is RAND Corp and they would say I’m an intellectual of their merit but not educated enough, Intelligence Agencies would say I’m too damn crazy to work for them. I am the John von Neumann of Social Sciences known as Zen van Nihil, or Ishmael Illuminati, or Dionysus in Disguise. To be a Social Engineer, it helps if one is a Mentalist-Futurist who can operate their abilities on a global scale. Fuck, people think Vladimir Putin is a hard individual to figure out, I obnoxiously blog my analysis of Putin on Facebook. I know what’s going to happen in geopolitics a year in advance from my Mentalist-Futurist game. I’ve been correct again and again about Putin and no one in the US listens. Hey elitists. Populares over Optimates any day.
Karl Popper and B. F. Skinner would call me a Mad Scientist and Monster for some of the Social-Engineering I do is savage. You know what catfishing is? Yeah, don’t get me started. When a Mentalist such as myself observes an individual take into account the sum of all parts individually to create their Design comprised of their beliefs, schooling, likes, dislikes, lifestyle, sexuality, gender, race, ethnicity, upbringing, religion, political beliefs, philosophy, everything. If there is a Group, one does the same to each individually and how the group operates on each level it is known as a Dynamic. Analysis one would use to translate a cypher or crack a code. Since 2010, I alone have numerous pseudonyms of pseudo-identities concerning Buzzfeeds, Tumblrs, Twitters, Facebook Pages which has helped me become a Cthulhu in the world of Geopolitics via Cyber Social Engineering. that I once used as a Cultural-Marxist Social Engineer to not poll for public opinion but create public opinion. This year, I used my powers for good and ran numerous Progressive Social Media pages, As the Chief Executive Propaganda Engineer and Director of my own Independent Organization. Some projects that I will tell you is that I was the Cyber National Organizer and Campaign Manager of many in the Berniecrats political organization. The project I worked on before spreading Social Democracy through the Republic was the leading Diplomat for Ayn Rand the $10 USD As I say, “The Trends justify the Memes.” on the Community just to be the that reflects Chairman Mao’s Chinese Cultural Revolution. Maoist China’s Red Guard are the Western World’s Social Justice Warrior. Chairman Mao’s Chinese Cultural Revolution most hated groups were anything considered a Bad Element or Intellectuals. In the Western Cultural Revolution those same things are replaced with anything Problematic or anything considered the following Problematic elements, if one is all then you are Scum. Those Problematic elements are: Patriarchal Heteronormative Cisgender Straight White Toxic-Masculinity Male.
Labeling people as Statistical Attributes rather than the Content of their Character. To Collectivize People into Groups instead of considering each Human being an Individual is a Step Towards New Malthusian Fascism. Limiting the Press, Policing Language by creating words that affect only certain groups is common among Authoritarian regimes, this is how a force of active Thought Policing is formed through distorting and contorting language to include the acts of petty Microaggressions to Actualized Brutality and Mass Murder is how Authoritarian Powers in Society come into existence and are allowed to commit their atrocities. There is or was a Fascist Globalist New Malthusian Monster on the Rise in the Western World, in the 2016 Election, the Candidate who was going to enact the actualized Conspiracy Theory of Agenda 23 was the Establishment Candidate on the supposed ‘Liberal’ or Democrat side in the Wicked Witch of Washington. What is happening in Europe would have happened in the United States as the Globalist Agenda 23 is truly just the Fascist Leviathan practicing their faith in Reverend Run by enacting a New Malthusian Deal.
I hold no contentions towards Feminists, I am sorry that Gloria Steinem and her disciples have lied to you, indoctrinated you, and made you a member of this Secular Religion. I am an apt pupil of Social Engineering who knows the Mass-Media game quite well in waging a war against the minds of a population for ideas are the ultimate opiate of the masses and ideas are bulletproof. My transformation from a Chaotic Newt to Chaotic Good in the realms as the Architect of Thought, Mastermind of Mass Media, the Social Engineer world worked on my project of Ayn Rand for the Woman on the $10 USD and rose in the ranks of the Berniecrats movement as a Social Democrat I self-actualized and self-transcended as a Champion of the People. I agree that men and women are equal, however, I am a Universal Humanist who says all Humans are Equal. I am not about misogyny or oppression of women but the enlightenment and liberation of all of Humanity. This is a statement of an idea against the Power Elite for their diabolical scheme of PC Culture to bring nothing but apartheid between the 99% of the Population of Common People as divisions are made among us proles to fight among one another while the Power Elite in my hypothesis of Futurism orchestrates the global scale New Malthusian Deal which affects all of us in Humanity.
MKUltra was the groundwork for Social Engineering on a globalist level that is a Gesamtkunstwerk. I couldn’t believe this until I collected a compendium of information of what is going on between Third Wave Feminists and all non-abiding parties for Feminism is an Authoritarian School of Thought. This is known as the Western Culture War for the Monopolization of Egalitarian Thought. The War of Sex, Race, Gender, Ability, and Intersectionality with rise of PC Culture began as a mass distraction and component of the globalist agenda of the New Malthusian Deal. (The New Malthusian Deal, a concept found in Novus Ordo Seclorum, by Zen van Nihil). This is why I hold no contentions towards Feminists, I agree that men and women are equal. However, I am a Universal Humanist who says all Humans are Equal. I am not about misogyny or oppression of women but the enlightenment and liberation of all of Humanity. This is a statement of an idea against the Power Elite for their diabolical scheme of PC Culture to bring nothing but apartheid as divisions are made among us to fight among one another while the Power Elite in my hypothesis of Futurism orchestrates the global scale New Malthusian Deal which affects all of us in humanity. I will not fall for Domestic Intelligence Operations to Socially Engineer the Western World for events that are destructive for many. I will give my pretty damn certain speculation and observation of the Socially Engineered Secular Religion of Modern Third Wave Feminism as well as Agenda 23 or what I refer to as Novus Ordo Seclorum. These are based on the scientific method of my own intellect and cleverosity of these Conspiracies.

Speculation Extent: Contemporary Times of Late-July 2016 to the Speculated Future of a New World Order.
Conditions: The Worst Case Possible Scenario.
Futurism Theory: The Universal Society of Humanity.

Futurism Scientific Methodology: The research conducted found this data through the scientific method in observing all factors leading to an event resulting in how the world is affected in total. This is the summary of a Futurist scientific research report that is considered speculation that is not be taken as certainty but as possibility. The research conducted on the principle of Causation and Effect. This is an Objective Study that has been conducted for 18+ months in the research of past, present, and possibly future events considered from all perspectives. I am an unbiased person, I hold no irrational phobias or let alone hatred of anyone. I respect all religions and ideologies. I enjoy many things from various religions who does not deny the wisdom in religions or their claims. I believe in the One True God. This is not an attack, this is a speculation based on scientific research known as Futurism. These results were found on the principle of reality in a Worst Case Possible Scenario.
Disclaimer: This is a Futurologist forecast based on the circumstances of a Worse Case Possible Scenario. Project Dystopian Dream Chief Futurologist Scientist Zen van Nihil holds an endearing and compassionate respect for all human beings, religions, political views, and ideologies. Zen van Nihil gained his ability of Futurism from writing Speculative Science Fiction while studying the grand design of the world considering all possible perspectives and points of views on a global level of past, present, and possible future events. Zen van Nihil conducted this research is based on studying systems of all perspectives aligning to what is most real in a Speculated Worst Case Possible Scenario.
Futurism Theory: Hegelian Dialectics, Alexander the Great, the New Age, The One World Order. In 4th Century BCE. A conqueror named Alexander of Macedon, commonly referred to as Alexander the Great existed. Alexander of Macedon was the first conqueror to almost successfully merge the worlds of the West and East to create a One World Order. Thesis was Hellenic West, Antithesis was Babylonian East for the Synthesis of a Babylonian-Greek society and culture as a One World Superpower. Alexander the Great did not maintain this world which ended with his life. Since then, history has led to this consequential New Age of a Universal Globalist Society that governs all of Humanity. The New World Order equation is the West as Thesis, the East as Antithesis, World War III as the Event Horizon which will dawn the New Age of Universal Human Society in Synthesis.
Futurism Hypothesis: There exist two forms of C. Wright Mills Power Elite in this world. One is a Power Elite of Good. This is referred to as the Power Elite of Order. The other is a Power Elite of Evil. I refer to this diabolical force as the Power Elite of Lawlessness. The Power Elite I will be discussing in this Futurism speculative report is the one that is evil known as the Power Elite of Lawlessness. The turmoil in the Middle East is coming to an event horizon the Evil Power Elite of the world has conspired in scheming this diabolical plan. Radical Religious Terrorists of any religion do not have nor are they true believers in God. Radical Religious Terrorists are Lawless Outlaws. Lawless Outlaws are a creation of the Evil Power Elite. The Evil Power Elite is a Mastermind of Global Engineering. The Evil Power Elite through Global Engineering orchestrated, sponsored, and incentivize this War on Terror which truly is a Resource War. The War on Terror feeds the Military-Industrial Complex that President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned us of such a Military-Industrial Complex. The War on Terror and Middle Eastern Conflicts are truly a Resource War that parallels the War on Drugs for the Prison-Industrial Complex. In the 1980’s it was Oliver North, Contras, and Drugs. Today, it is the Evil Power Elite, Daesh, and Resources. The perceived radicalization of a religion is truly a controversial issue. However, these supposed religious zealots practice Lawless Discord which are what is truly known by myself, political, military, intellectual, and true faithful of Islam know this evil doomsday cult as Daesh. Daesh: are in truth, Lawless Nihilist who brainwashed and indoctrinated into a MKUltra cult of doom which the Evil Elitists are making a profit off of human suffering. I hate Optimates, Populares always win. Daesh is a Lawless Death Cult who cause discord, chaos, they are lawlessness embodied on this planet. The Daesh Outlaws proclaim to be practicing the faith of the One True God and following His messenger. However, Daesh Outlaws are Hypocritical Nihilists. Daesh is an insult to these terrorists for it sounds like the Arabic word for ‘Discord’. All Arabic Terrorist groups are Daesh Lawless Cult of Nihilists to me. (Daesh is primarily known as the Islamic State/ISIS/ISIL) are all aligned to the doctrine of Daesh Lawless Nihilist Psychopathy. The Doomsday Cultists of Daesh Outlaws wage Warfare to bring the Last Day in Spiritual Eschatology, these Lawless Daesh know nothing of religion or God, they are Illiterate of Islam. Daesh Outlaws primary victims are Peaceful Muslims, their primary victims are the true Faithful among the Ummah. The Evil Power Elite over our planet willingly destabilized the Middle East to bring the possible event horizon to mass produce Daesh Doomsday Cultists to bring what they think is the Last Day. (Only God can bring the Last Day). The Neutral Power Elite forces thought a function of taking out perceived tyrannical powers fell to the sway of the Evil Power Elite as a dysfunction for creating a hive for creating Daesh Outlaws. Daesh Doomsday Cultists all share their vision of bringing the Last Day, their visions is one of absolute destruction for the end of everything. (The Last Day belongs to God and only God). In the Arabic World, Daesh Outlaws will attack the local population in a bombing and among the mourning they will spin a story that the West was behind the attack which then the Daesh Outlaws brainwash the vulnerable into the barbaric Daesh Outlaws. Daesh Outlaws use lawless discord to bring more Daesh Outlaws as violence begets violence. Lawless Terrorism will become exponentially greater in the USA as attacks are assaulted on the population by Lawless Daesh. The Lawless Daesh Cult in their ideology share the belief that Israel and the USA are known as Little and Big Shaitan. After 2016, the USA will adopt the same policies of Europe on Migrants which presents an opportunity for Daesh Outlaws. Lawless Daesh will use this for their own advantage in sending their Alamut Army as a large portion of Daesh Terrorists will come to the USA. Lawless Daesh in their barbaric bloodlust in their blight of Discord upon the Middle East and our world in testing their brutality against the peaceful groups of the region including Peaceful Muslims despite the Lawless Daesh Doomsday Cult claiming to be such. (Muslims are the primary victims of Daesh Outlaws). The Lawless Daesh Terrorist will send a covert Alamut Army among fleeing peaceful refugees into our nation, (which Lawless Daesh know as Big Shaitan). This will compromise national security from within as guerrilla warfare in small doses will be waged in terrorist attacks. The everyday American will find their lives transformed by terrorism as the Daesh Alamut Army will cause terrorism to skyrocket. Daesh will wage their war within our nation’s borders. The last Arab Nation that is not currently being destabilized is Iran which according to many high-ranking Military and Intelligence officials who spoke out about this agenda publicly (prior the Resource War) stated issued warnings of such a plan. The US-Iran Deal is the stipulation of the Evil Power Elite to find substantial or fabricate evidence in case of a Daesh attack by weapons of mass destruction of any variety to manufacture consent for war with Iran. If the United States of America launches a military campaign in a invasion of Iran. Manufactured Consent from a false flag or probable certainty favoring a Lawless Daesh planned operation that caused mass destruction to the West. From reviewing patterns and symbols through world events in reviewing global power relationships Russian Federation and People’s Republic of China by the ability to perceive correlations that these two superpowers would be allies in this conflict. In the case that the United States of America should launch a military invasion of Iran; the Russian Federation and People’s Republic of China would wage total war against the United States of America. This event of World War III will assuredly end by the universally held military doctrine and strategy known as Mutually Assured Destruction employing devastating Weapons of Mass Destruction such as MIRVs. From a wildly speculated and probably certainty; the Russian Federation has shared their intelligence with the People’s Republic of China. This alliance of the Russian Federation and People’s Republic of China is from mutually shared interests. The United States of America in their contentions towards the Russian Federation will enter a cold war, or more likely heat up to the point of war. In geopolitics, the Russian Federation has always been treated as an outsider, embargoes and conflicts from this outsider status have not eased over the inevitable coming of war. The People’s Republic of China will enter the fray due to the United States of America’s impossible lineage of debt to the People’s Republic of China. The United States of America’s indebted amount to the People’s Republic of China is unrealistic to ever be paid in total sum. In addition to the indebted total sum coupled with the over-time destroying interest rates. The People’s Republic of China may wish to eliminate a competing global superpower. These factors alone will cause World War III. The United States of America and Allies will fight against the Russian Federation and the People’s Republic of China. The Russian Federation and People’s Republic of China are currently military superpowers; drafting and growing their military, annexing territory in preparation for what is the inevitable tragedy determined to happen.
Aftermath of World War III: On the grounds that the world isn’t a post-apocalyptic wasteland. A globalist government will emerge as humanity is united by the end of all wars and greatest of tragedies with the population decimated to a hard reset point. This is in line with the New Malthusian Project (New Malthus Deal) and the scientific fact that ‘this Planet is one of Finite Resources’ which is why the Lawless Power Elite may decimate the population for sustainability for as the statement of statecraft goes, the ends justify the means. The West is Thesis. The East is Antithesis. The convergence of World War III or whatever the event horizon to dawn the New Age of the New World Order or Universal Globalist Society that is the Synthesis.
Equation: Welcome to the Dawn of the New Age. The Illumination of Humanity and the One World State.
Final Disclaimer: Project Dystopian Dreams is a Speculated Science Research Report on the Science of Futurism created in the Worst Case Possible Scenario. This is pure speculation.
Contemporary American Exceptionalism: the plague of epidemics known as Narcissism and Anti-Intellectualism ravaging the American Societal Consciousness and none are wiser of its destruction. The critical moment of a 11th Hour Renaissance for American Society will dawn when the event horizon that is the inevitable end will come to pass. The only Entitlement worth the wages of everything that is our world is Enlightenment. Doctor Martin Luther King, I have heard God speak to me as well. God told me: “All of humanity will face darker days ahead, be still and know that I am God.” I am watching a train called Thesis leaving the West headed Eastward, a train called Antithesis leaving the East heading Westward. Thesis and Antithesis are on the same track, the point of collision is the point of global convergence that is the New Age known as Synthesis. I hope the Synthesis is a Global World State that knows God’s name.
Possible Split Dimensional Reality: The possibility for this Event of this Agenda 23 situation would have come from the Left or if the Democrats had won the 2016 Presidential Election or any part of governing process at in the 2016 US Election. Optimates will always lose. Populares always win. Vox Populi, Vox Dei.

Did the CIA Use Gloria Steinem to Subvert the Feminist Movement?

Co-opting Radical Feminism for Corporate Interests
While preeminent American feminist Gloria Steinem’s CIA background receives wide attention on the Internet, it’s a totally taboo topic in either the corporate or the so-called “alternative” media. Steinem’s work for the CIA front group Independent Research Service first entered the public domain in 1967 when Ramparts magazine exposed both the Independent Research Service and the National Student Association as CIA front organizations.
Fearing unflattering publicity, Steinem gave interviews to both the New York Times and the Washington Post defending her CIA work (see video below). In both articles, she claims to have taken the initiative in contacting Cord Meyers, who headed the CIA’s International Organization Division and their top secret Operation Mockingbird.* Her goal, allegedly, was to seek CIA financing to encourage American participation in the seventh postwar (Soviet-sponsored) World Youth Festival in Vienna in 1959.
The article quotes her: “Far from being shocked by this involvement, I was happy to find some liberals in government who were farsighted and cared enough to get Americans of all political views to attend.”
Steinem served as director of the CIA-funded Independent Research Service from 1958–62. It was her responsibility to organize US students, scholars and writers to attend the yearly World Youth Festival, to observe and takes notes on foreign participants, to distribute pamphlets, flyers and books and to edit a daily propaganda newspaper.
Steinem Threatens to Sue Random House
Steinem’s CIA links came to mainstream media attention a second time in 1979, when the Village Voice ran an article about a chapter Random House had censored from Redstockings Collective’s 1979 book Feminist Revolution. Random House spiked the chapter, which describes Steinem’s earlier CIA work, after Steinem threatened to sue them. This deleted chapter (which you can get free by ordering an out-of-print copy of Feminist Revolution from Redstockings Collective) also suggests her CIA involvement may not have ended in 1969 when she left the International Research Associates. It details the right wing corporate funding which helped Steinem inaugurate Ms Magazine, as well as the magazine’s pivotal role in transforming American feminism from a broad multi-class, multiracial movement to one devoted to divisive male bashing and advancing career opportunities for white upper middle class women.
The original feminists of the sixties and seventies didn’t hate men (at least not the ones I worked with). What they hated was patriarchy and the use of male privilege to deny women and children full equality as human beings.
Operation Mockingbird in Action
In 1960 Clay Felker, a CIA-linked Independent Research Service staffer who accompanied Steinem to the Helsinki World Youth Festival in 1962, became the editor of Esquire magazine, where he published many of Steinem’s early feminist articles. In 1968 Felker started New York magazine, and in 1971 he hired Steinem as contributing editor. It was Felker who published the first edition of Ms Magazine as a New York magazine insert.
As the feminist magazine Off Our Backs states in a 1975 article about the Redstockings scandal, their discovery of Steinem’s earlier CIA employment raised a host of concerns about her sudden installation (mainly by corporate media) as the official leader of the US women’s movement without any previous involvement in feminist groups or campaigns.
Interestingly Ms Magazine‘s first publisher was Elizabeth Forsling Harris, a CIA-connected PR executive who planned John Kennedy’s Dallas motorcade route.
The Turmoil At NOW
In 1966, Steinem was still on the board of directors of International Research Service, when she co-founded National Organization for Women (NOW) with Betty Friedan, author of The Feminine Mystique. A 2001 article inThe American Prospect describes (quoting from The World Split Open by Ruth Rosen) how in 1975 prominent NOW members Carol Hanisch and Kathie Sarachild openly accused Steinem of working for the CIA and “directing the movement toward moderation and capitulation.” Ultimately Friedan herself became concerned “a paralysis of leadership” in the movement “could be due to the CIA” and demanded that Steinem respond.
After three months, Steinem wrote a six-page letter to various feminist publications describing her work on two student festivals in 1959 and 1962 that were funded by the CIA. Aiming to deflect the charge she was or had been a government operative, it stated, “I naively thought then that the ultimate money source didn’t matter, since in my own experience, no control or orders came with it.”
The Off Our Backs article also raises questions about a parallel organization Steinem started (in competition with NOW — starting parallel groups is a common strategy employed by US intelligence to sabotage grassroots organizations) in 1971 called Women’s Action Alliance. Located in the same building as Ms. Despite its name, the WAA wasn’t involved in “action,” as its name suggests. It engaged mainly in information gathering. It had a $20,000 grant from Rockefeller Family Fund for the establishment of a “national clearinghouse information and referral service” on the women’s movement. WAA collected information on key women leaders and their groups and activities, presumably facilitation FBI/CIA efforts to monitor them.
Steinem’s Fascination with Fascist Men
Despite her so-called liberal feminist credentials, Steinem has had a clear preference for right wing men, often with CIA and/or FBI links. She had a nine-year relationship with Stanley Pottinger, a Nixon-Ford assistant attorney general, who played a prominent role in undermining civil rights enforcement under Nixon and Ford. He also obstructed FBI investigations into the assassinations of Martin Luther King, and the ex-Chilean Foreign Minister Orlando Latelier.
In 1984 Pottinger was investigated for participating in Irangate, a CIA scheme to illegally smuggle arms to Iran .**
In the 1980’s, Steinem dated Henry Kissinger.
The Use of Black Feminists to Sabotage Civil Rights Organizing
In the late seventies and early seventies, African American organizers became concerned about a pattern in which agents posing as black feminists infiltrated their community groups in an effort to split off women members into separate organizations. They traced this phenomenon back to 1978 when Steinem put a book called Black Macho and the Myth of the Superwoman on the cover of Ms Magazine.
The book was allegedly “written” by a Black “feminist” and “activist” named Michele Wallace. In her early twenties Wallace, who like Steinem came out of nowhere (she was a Newsweek book review researcher), was suddenly being touted as the “leader” of Black feminism. In the book, Wallace called abolitionists like Harriet Tubman and Sojouner Truth “ugly” and “stupid” for supporting Black men. She called Black Revolutionaries “chauvinist macho pigs” and advised Black women to “go it alone.”
Gloria Steinem maintained that Wallace’s book would “define the future of Black relationships” and she pushed hard to make sure the book received massive publicity. Gloria Steinem’s efforts triggered a flood of “Hate Black Men” books and films that continues to this day.
*Operation Mockingbird was a secret CIA campaign to influence the media by placing CIA assets on the staff and editorial board of major publishers and media outlets and by paying reporters a small stipend to publish articles favorable to CIA interests. It allegedly ended in 1976 but many researchers believes it continues under a different name to the present day.
**Irangate was a CIA effort to illegally smuggle arms to Iran to obtain funding for the illegal CIA war against Nicaragua.
Gloria Steinem: How the CIA Used Feminism to Destabilize Society
Updated: March 18, 2002
by Henry Makow Ph.D.
“In the 1960’s, the elite media invented second-wave feminism as part of the elite agenda to dismantle civilization and create a New World Order.”
Since writing these words last week, I have discovered that before becoming a feminist, Gloria Steinem worked for the CIA spying on Marxist students in Europe and disrupting their meetings. She became a media darling due to her CIA connections. MS Magazine, which she edited for many years was indirectly funded by the CIA.
Steinem has tried to suppress this information unearthed in the 1970’s by a radical feminist group called Red Stockings. In 1979, Steinem and her powerful CIA-connected friends, Katharine Graham of the Washington Post and Ford Foundation President Franklin Thomas prevented Random House from publishing it in Feminist Revolution. Nevertheless the story appeared in the Village Voice on May 21, 1979.
Steinem has always pretended that she had been a student radical. “When I was in college, it was the McCarthy era,” she told Susan Mitchell in 1997, “and that made me a Marxist.” (Icons, Saints and Divas: Intimate Conversations with Women who Changed the World 1997. p 130) Her bio-blurb in June 1973 MS. Magazine states: “Gloria Steinem has been a freelance writer all her professional life. Ms magazine is her first full-time salaried job.”
Not true. Raised in an impoverished, dysfunctional Jewish family in Toledo Ohio, Steinem somehow managed to attend elite Smith College, Betty Friedan’s alma mater. After graduating in 1955, Steinem received a “Chester Bowles Student Fellowship” to study in India. Curiously, an Internet search reveals that this fellowship has no existence apart from Gloria Steinem. No one else has received it.
In 1958, Steinem was recruited by CIA’s Cord Meyers to direct an “informal group of activists” called the “Independent Research Service.” This was part of Meyer’s “Congress for Cultural Freedom,” which created magazines like “Encounter” and “Partisan Review” to promote a left-liberal chic to oppose Marxism. Steinem, attended Communist-sponsored youth festivals in Europe, published a newspaper, reported on other participants, and helped to provoke riots.
It was all toward promoting a false dialectic. The same people that are behind Communism are behind the CIA. The other Jewish leader of second wave feminism, Betty Friedan, was a member of the Communist Party.
Steinem was not an unwitting agent or dupe. She was quite aware of the fact that the CIA was pulling her strings. In The Mighty Wurlitzer, author Hugh Wilford elaborates: “As for Steinem herself, she became witting when she began asking questions about the ISI’s funding, and the undercover CIA officers explained that the Boston grandees and foundations apparently subsidizing the venture were in fact pass-throughs for secret official fund.” (142)
One of Steinem’s CIA colleagues was Clay Felker. In the early 1960’s, he became an editor at Esquire and published articles by Steinem which established her as a leading voice for women’s lib.
In 1968, as publisher of New York Magazine, Felker hired her as a contributing editor, and then editor of Ms. Magazine in 1971. Warner Communications put up almost all the money although it only took 25% of the stock. Ms. Magazine’s first publisher was Elizabeth Forsling Harris, a CIA-connected PR executive who planned John Kennedy’s Dallas motorcade route.
Despite its anti establishment image, MS magazine attracted advertising from the cream of corporate America. It published ads for ITT at the same time as women political prisoners in Chile were being tortured by Pinochet, after a coup inspired by the US conglomerate and the CIA.
Steinem’s personal relationships also belie her anti establishment pretensions. She had a nine-year relationship with Stanley Pottinger, a Nixon-Ford assistant attorney general, credited with stalling FBI investigations into the assassinations of Martin Luther King, and the ex-Chilean Foreign Minister Orlando Latelier. In the 1980’s, she dated Henry Kissinger.
CIA CONTROLS INFORMATION/DISCOURSE
Using foundations as conduits, the CIA controlled intellectual discourse in the 1950’s and 1960’s, and continues to do so today. In “The Cultural Cold War,” Francis Stonor Saunders estimates that a thousand books were produced under the imprint of a variety of commercial and university presses, with covert subsidies.
The CIA’s “Project Mockingbird” involved the direct infiltration of the corporate media, a process that often included direct takeover of major news outlets. “By the early 1950’s,” writes Deborah Davis, in her book “Katherine the Great,” the CIA owned respected members of the New York Times, Newsweek, CBS and other communication vehicles, plus stringers, four to six hundred in all.”
In 1982, the CIA admitted that reporters on the CIA payroll have acted as case officers to agents in the field. Philip Graham, publisher of the Washington Post, who ran the operation until his “suicide” in 1963, boasted that “you could get a journalist cheaper than a good call girl, for a couple of hundred dollars a month.”
