In International Social Science Journal Volume XI, No. 1 1959, we find “By Way of Introduction” presented by psychiatrist John Rees. The first part of John Rees’s speech covered their new slogan “quality of life”, and the strategy of breaking all loyalty bonds and increasing public exposure of “sick and deviating personalities.”

Please also see: How L. Ron Hubbard Got It So Wrong – Clausewitz and The Purpose of War for a more thorough analysis of this War Against The Spirit that Rees was helping to spearhead.

Let’s have a look at the second part of John’s speech, here in 1959.




To recap, Rees is listed as a contributor to this publication, as:

J. R . REES, Director, World Federation for Mental Health, London.


Here’s John:

The social, educational and medical activities of the United Nations and of regional and bilateral agencies and the increased concern of non-governmental organizations have all played their part in convincing the responsible authorities in many countries that these problems do exist; that they create a social, financial and humanitarian burden on a country, and that something must be done to deal effectively with them.

It was because of the changed attitudes and opinions in so many places that the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH), fired by the example of the International Geophysical Year, decided to inaugurate a World Mental Health Year in about 1960, to give scientific impetus to research and action in the field of mental health. The purpose of the World Mental Health Year is to encourage scientific progress and the translation of knowledge into the necessary action. It is not its purpose to emphasize especially the work of the WFMH , nor that of any other body, governmental or non-governmental, which will be co-operating in this venture.

Here, therefore, it is only necessary to indicate very briefly the aspirations and activities of the WFMH during its first 10 years. For the guidance of the reader it should be stated that the federation is an international non-governmental organization which, after starting with 22 founding member associations, now comprises 111 mental health associations or professional societies, and in addition some 73 affiliated organizations. The federation has always championed interdisciplinary work and the promotion of mental health concepts through work in discussion groups rather than by means of lectures.

Its links with the United Nations have become closer every year and it has co-operated more and more with a large number of other international nongovernmental organizations, which like itself have consultative status with the United Nations and the Specialized Agencies. It has brought together over twenty expert meetings on various topics. It has held regional meetings in various parts of the world, and annual meetings of its members in different countries. Through visits and consultant services it has strengthened its contacts with member associations and with the governments of the 42 countries in which it n ow has members, and in another twenty-odd countries besides.

Unesco and the World Health Organization were the two Specialized Agencies which pressed originally for the formation of the WFMH, because an active voluntary organization in this field was bound to support their aims and purposes. The social science and educational departments of Unesco have shown an active interest in mental health, although at times they have felt it to be more in keeping with their particular position in the United Nations to speak of ‘child development’ or of ‘moral and social’ problems, and have been a little shy of using the word ‘health’. The federation has had the privilege of working closely with them on a number of matters, such as the tensions project and the study of the techniques of international conferences deriving from that project. It has carried out contracts for Unesco by issuing a manual on Cultural Patterns and Technical Change, arranging for the production of Flight and Resettlement, and producing a number of special studies on various topics and suggestions for Unesco programmes which have been implemented.

For now, I’ll just take up the last bolded part.


Unesco and the World Health Organization were the two Specialized Agencies which pressed originally for the formation of the WFMH…”


This is an extremely misleading statement by John. It is blatant propaganda designed to make you think that these are somehow “independent” masses of great numbers of individuals (when it was really just 2 or 3) and to misdirect you away from the idea that these same few individuals were all working together towards World Government and domination in the first place.

I’ll explain.


George Brock Chisholm

Chisholm WWII


Chisholm, was a Tavistock man. He, together with several other key Tavistock figures, were the first wave of the global push for Social Psychiatry – first expounded upon by Elmer Ernest Southard, a monstrous individual who enjoyed experimenting on mental patients. Chisholm and his cronies, through the efforts of MI5/MI6 men Winston Churchill and Lord Northcliffe, were introduced into the British Army under the cover story of “Officer Selection” and assistance with “shell-shocked” soldiers. From that springboard, what was then launched would become some of the most horrible front organizations that have ever existed – making Hitler’s SS and the previous incarnations of the Catholic Church look like springtime in New York by comparison.

Chisholm reveals much of his insane ideas, plans, and proclivities in a document that I have uploaded and done an in-depth analysis of.

Chapters from my husband’s Scientology Roots book go into much more detail and shed a clear light on what the true agenda is –


As said in their own words.


See –

Chapter Twenty New World Order Police State

My husband discusses a document that I found concerning the formation of the WFMH and George Brock Chisholm’s role in founding this new world “state’.


In the Fall of 1945, John Rees visited New York and proposed to the International Committee of Mental Hygiene that a world conference be held in London to unite the activities of psychiatrists.

American psychiatrist Harry Stack Sullivan was an ardent proponent of world citizenship, as was Canadian psychiatrist G. Brock Chisholm. They hoped that world loyalty would replace allegiance to a nation.

In 1945 Sullivan invited Chisholm to lecture at the William Alanson White Foundation on “The Psychiatry of Enduring Peace and Social Progress”. Chisholm’s challenge to his fellow psychiatrists was unequivocal: “With the other human sciences psychiatry must now decide what is to be the immediate future of the human race. No one else can” 7

In 1946, the U.S. Congress passed the National Mental Health Act, establishing the National Institute of Mental Health. Robert Felix became the NIMH’s first director.

Since then, the NIMH has doled out billions of dollars to psychiatrists.6

In November 1946, Britain’s John R. Rees convened a small gathering of psychiatrists in New York City in the office of George Stevenson, Medical Director of the US National Mental Health Association. At this meeting Brock Chisholm was the first to suggest the formation of a new international organization and proposed its name – World Federation for Mental Health. 7

The First International Congress of Mental Health was organized in London by the British National Association for Mental Hygiene. The Congress was held from 16 to 21 August, 1948. It was supposed to be an international conference on mental hygiene. It was attended by 2,000 people from various countries in the world.

Before the congress got started, a group of 25 people met from July 24th to August 8th. This group was called the International Preparatory Commission. Harry Stack Sullivan was one of the primary people at their meetings. They discussed how to influence the 2,000 attendees in the direction of supporting the political objective of forming a World government. They produced a pamphlet to hand out to the 2,000 attendees that contained this statement – the ultimate goal of mental healthto help men to live with their fellows in one world.

The conference was convened under the theme “Mental Health and World Citizenship”. Discussions over world citizenship prevailed over those on mental health; only one concept of mental health was put forward, by J.C. Flugel.

Starting as an International Conference on Mental Hygiene, it ended with a series of recommendations on mental health.

The Resolution to found WFMH began with a meeting in the British Ministry of Health building during the London Congress on the night of 18 August. John Rees announced the Resolution at a session of the Congress. The Resolution was ratified by the official Congress delegates on 21 August 1948. 8

At the end of the congress, the International Committee on Mental Hygiene was superseded by the World Federation for Mental Health.

The mental hygiene movement had been transformed into the mental health movement.

The mental hygiene movement was a crusade to end abusive treatment of mental patients, the enslavers transformed it into a political crusade for establishing a world government – operating under the banner of being a mental health movement.

As a reflection of this basically political movement, in 1949, the National Institute of Mental Health started its activities in the United States. 2, 3, 4


“Also founded….was the United Nations and the World Health Organization. Both are working for establishing a world government.

John Rawlings Rees was the first president of the World Federation for Mental Health.

G. Brock Chisholm became the first Director General of the World Health Organization.”


You can see how joined-at-the-hip these two men are, so for John Rees to later try to characterize the formation of the WFMH as a request from “an organization” is really blatant propaganda.

Unesco and the World Health Organization were the two Specialized Agencies which pressed originally for the formation of the WFMH…” – John Rees in 1959

To further illustrate this, let’s briefly examine a bit more closely, the formation of these organizations, starting with the United Nations.

The UN was not officially founded until 1945 when the Charter of the United Nations was drafted at the UN Conference on International Organization in San Francisco, California. The conference was attended by 50 nations and several non-governmental organizations – all of which signed the Charter.

There were 74 members of the Council on Foreign Relations present at the conference, including Nelson Rockefeller, John Foster Dulles, and John J. McCloy (head of the Rockefeller Chase-Manhattan Bank). The Rockefellers donated the land for the United Nations headquarters in New York city. [ref: Tragedy and Hope by Carroll Quigley].

Note: this is the same year that Felix Adler’s Society of Ethical Culture – through the British masonic “Scottish Rite” front group of Temple Emanu-el in New York City, began showing their alignment with the New World Order agenda of Brits Chisholm, Rees, and the Huxley brothers.

The UN officially came into existence on October 24, 1945 after ratification of the Charter.

At the same time,the World Health Organization was originated during that same conference, that was held to set up the United Nations. A Technical Preparatory Committee met in Paris in March and April 1946 and drew up proposals for the Constitution, which were presented to the International Health Conference that met in New York in June and July of the same year.

The objective of WHO is:  “the attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health.” Health, as defined in the WHO Constitution, is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. WHO is the directing and coordinating authority for health within the United Nations system. It is responsible for providing leadership on global health matters, shaping the health research agenda, setting norms and standards, articulating evidence-based policy options, providing technical support to countries, and monitoring and assessing health trends. WHO’s objective, as set out in its Constitution, is the attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health. The Constitution defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

Chisholm, was the first head of the WHO.

Just after the UN and WHO conferences, Chisholm and others called for a conference to form UNESCO – The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization – and for it to be an agency within the United Nations.

The background development of UNESCO began in 1942, during World War II, (the same time period when Chisholm and Rees were in control of Army Psychiatry under orders from Churchill) when the governments of several European countries met in the United Kingdom for the Conference of Allied Ministers of Education (CAME). During that conference, leaders from the participating countries worked to develop ways to reconstruct education around the world once WWII was over. As a result, the proposal of CAME was established that focused on holding a future conference in London for the establishment of an education and cultural organization from November 1-16, 1945.

When that conference began in 1945 (shortly after the United Nations officially came into existence), there were 44 participating countries whose delegates decided to create an organization that would promote a culture of peace, establish an “intellectual and moral solidarity of mankind,” and prevent another world war. When the conference ended on November 16, 1945, 37 of the participating countries founded UNESCO with the Constitution of UNESCO.

In early 1946, as head of the World Health Organization, George Brock Chisholm submitted his paper related to the founding of UNESCO, entitled: The Psychiatry of Enduring Peace and Social Progress, which became the backbone document of the Constitution of UNESCO, with Julian Huxley assigned as it’s first Director General. Julian personally describes UNESCO in this document.

Examples of false and misleading “happy cherry-sounding words”:

Its main concern is with peace and security and with human welfare, in so far as they can be subserved by the educational and scientific and cultural relations of the peoples of the world. Accordingly its outlook must, it seems, be based on some form of humanism.






not a good sign


After ratification, the Constitution of UNESCO that Julian is essentially describing (linked to above) officially came into effect on November 4, 1946. The first official General Conference of UNESCO was then held in Paris from November 19-December 10, 1946 with representatives from 30 countries.

So, you have Chisholm mixed up in directing both UNESCO and the WHO (on behalf of John Rawlings Rees) and then Chisholm “asking” (ha ha) Rees to form the WFMH. And then here we are with salesman Rees in 1959, trying to recharacterize the whole thing as not being the work of a relatively few front men – which it was.

Unesco and the World Health Organization were the two Specialized Agencies which pressed originally for the formation of the WFMH…” – John Rees in 1959


Nice try there, Rees.




Getting back to Rees again, and what he said in 1959 – take a look at this doozy of a slogan, probably courtesy of Chisholm:

Unesco has naturally always borne in mind the phrase in its Constitution which runs: ‘wars begin in the minds of men’.

Bet you never knew where that phrase came from – from the very men who wished to wage such a war.

Isn’t that interesting?


They have now defined their battleground.


Rees continues:

WHO is dedicated, according to its Constitution, to the pursuit of ‘mental, physical and social well-being’. Its Mental Health Section was set up in 1949, though on all too small a scale. It has done a remarkable job during its nine years of existence. With an orientation which is primarily medical, WHO has perhaps made its greatest contribution in the medical fields of therapy and prevention, though its activities have become increasingly multi-professional—as indeed they must be if health is to be given the necessary high priority.

Of the six regional offices of WHO, that for Europe was less urgently concerned with the great killing diseases than the other five, with the result that the European region has given the lead in much of the work for mental health, and this work has always been of a very high standard. The other regions, chiefly occupied, on their restricted budgets, with the great problems of malaria and the other major physical diseases, have inevitably been less able to consider the attitudes of men and women to disease and to health and their psychic disorders, though realizing that these are matters which must be tackled. In the past few years it has seemed that the rapid rate of change in culture patterns in most countries was giving rise to stress and anxiety. In many countries adequate treatment facilities will be a long time in developing, so that the use of public health methods in the prophylaxis of psychological disorders is indicated.

World Mental Health Year is assured of the co-operation of many intergovernmental organizations, and will have the help and support of governmental agencies in different countries. The stage is therefore set for a considerable effort, from many different angles, to tackle the problems of mental ill health and the development of better conditions for future generations.

The annual ‘World Health Day’ of WHO has taken for its theme next April ‘Mental illness and mental health in the world today’, and this in itself is significant, and indicative of a change in the climate of opinion. This could not have happened a few years ago. As it is, it provides the best possible occasion for drawing world-wide attention to the work of WHO and to the many unsolved health problems, and at the same time for the inauguration of co-operative work for World Mental Health Year, which will continue from then until 1961. Many of the projects started in this period will without doubt have to be carried on for a good many years longer.

Funds will be needed for this work, but, above all, the interest and enthusiasm of research workers and public health and mental health practitioners throughout the world.

The Joint Commission on Mental Illness and Health, which has been working for the past two years in the United States of America has brought to light through the efforts of some of its staff a number of research projects which were well-conceived and planned, were carried through, and the results of which in a considerable number of cases pointed to possibilities of social action thanks to which some of the conditions that had been studied could be remedied. This particular group of research findings have not yet been published, and all of us will be interested to see them when they are made available.

The challenge to the social sciences and to psychiatry is to produce basic data and evidence upon which to base planning that will lead to social action through education, or, if necessary, legislation. We know of the part which social scientists played in helping the Supreme Court of the United States to arrive at one of its very important decisions on the race problem.

Would you look at that – that’s just about a direct admission that WFMH, WHO (really Chisholm, Rees, and a few others) are directly trying to control the United States Supreme Court into making rulings that:


Fit their agenda.


Plus, look at Rees gloat…typical Slavemaster.


Never watches his FLANK properly.


cheshire cat


Don’t forget, Rees is a Brit, less we forget just how destructive certain Brits intent has been towards the people of the United States for the past almost TWO HUNDRED YEARS – especially since the time of President Jackon.

This sheds even more light on the connection between justices Abe Fortas and Jerome N. Frank and Chisholm’s lectures given to the William Alanson White institute. Particularly concerning one of the afore-mentioned justices tenure in the Supreme Court, where he essentially was responsible for making it possible for Psychiatrists testimony to be admissible in Court.

That day was a terrible travesty in the annals of Justice. A dark day indeed.

John Rees continues:

Israel has provided us with a particularly good illustration of social action.*

*1. ‘Sexual offences against children—a new method of investigation in Israel’, World Mental Health, Vol. 9, No. 2, May 1957, PP. 74-82.

Here certain data were well known, but no one had previously acted on the strength of the known facts. All those who work in children’s clinics know that children who have been the victims of a sexual assault often suffer more from the necessary appearance in court and the cross-questioning there, than they have in fact suffered from the traumatic experience of the assault. Some years ago now, in Israel, action was taken to remedy this, and a law was passed that no child under 14 who had been the victim of an assault might appear in court. Instead a social worker, after taking down the full story (and thereby probably accomplishing the necessary therapy for the child), appears in court to give the child’s evidence on his behalf. This is hearsay evidence, and so at first was very unpopular, it seems, with the lawyers; but so far there has not been a single instance of injustice having been done to the m a n concerned.

This is real preventive work, for the after-effects of sexual assault can be considerable. Difficult attitudes result which prevent marriage, lead to frigidity, and which in some measure get passed on to the children of the next generation; so that this piece of  legislation protects not only a relatively small group, but a much larger section of the population, from unnecessary distortion of the personality.

One of the most interesting stimuli to action has lain in the field of child-mother relationship and the insecurity that can result, sometimes disastrously, from any break therein. Research work carried out in a number of different countries has shown that in many cases the child who was deprived of a close, secure relationship with the mother or mother-substitute, whether in the home or through going to hospital, suffered considerably, and that sometimes the changes produced in the child’s personality were irreversible. Much of this work was brought together in a monograph published by WHO*

*. J. Bowlby, Maternal Care and Mental Health, World Health Organization, 1952. (Monograph Series, No. 2.)

[Rees fails to inform you that Bowlby is yet another Tavistock man, under Chisholm’s wing who was heading up the WHO]

which has been very widely read, and a great deal of action has resulted from it. Children’s hospitals all over the world which had no facilities for regular visiting by the mother or her presence in the hospital, have now, in very many cases, made the necessary arrangements.

Don’t let Rees’s words in that last part above fool you – the reason they are embarking on that study of child-mother is far more sinister than it’s happy cherry-sounding surface words (and actions, in this case).

The real reason that this study was embarked upon, was all part of covert experimentation on how to make man more amenable, tractable, suggestible, and able to be formed into what they wanted him to be. You have to remember, that by 1952 (the time of the Bowlby paper) MKULTRA was just getting under Full Steam Ahead – along with the partner work done through the Tavistock organizations in Britain and the more secret MI5 experimenting grounds such as Porton Down.

So, what Rees is really promoting there, if you look closely, is:

the insecurity that can result, sometimes disastrously, from any break therein.

Hence, take a child and BREAK THIS RELATIONSHIP and you’re off to see the wizard!

  2. I’ve been trying to connect how John Bowlby’s attachment work has been incorporated into Tavistock, MK Ultra and the Macy Conferences. I can make the connections to his work and social engineering, but can’t find anything that points directly to his involvement. Was he a “dupe” or intentional in how his work was “weaponized”? I can find information on how he was associated with Rees and Trist, but nothing that outlines how his work has specifically been used for social engineering. Are there any resources you could recommend?
