Modern Siberian KGB - Gulag mass murderers modelled by 1974 Milgram experiment

Many modern people are often puzzled by numerous questions related to Russian Secret Service in Siberia. “How did modern Siberian FSB-KGB secret agents appear? Was it something totally abnormal related to their mentality? Was this something that is specific to the Russian nation? Why do they continue to organize murders, fires, explosions, and crimes worldwide now?”

Many intelligent people are often puzzled by the questions like,Guest Posting “How did modern Siberian FSB-KGB secret agents appear? Was it something totally abnormal related to their mentality? Was this something that is specific to the Russian nation? Why do they continue to organize murders, fires, explosions, and crimes worldwide now?”

In 1974, Stanley Milgram, a social psychologist at Yale University, tested obedience to authority. He set up an experiment and showed that most ordinary people can become accomplices in killing totally innocent individuals. How was it done?

Imagine that you and somebody else arrive in the psycho lab to participate in the study about memory and learning. You become the “teacher”, who will teach the “learner” to become smarter. How? The teachers are encouraged to gradually increase punishment for mistakes of the learner by administration of electrical shock. The learner is in the next room. Pre-recorded screams are played each time the teacher administers a shock. If the subject indicates their desire to halt the experiment, they are told by the experimenter, “Please continue.” “The experiment requires that you continue.” “It is absolutely essential that you continue.” “You have no other choice, you must go on.” If after all four orders, the teacher still wishes to stop the experiment, it is ended. When the shocks get to a higher voltage, the actor/learner would bang on the wall and ask the teacher to stop. Eventually all screams and banging would stop and silence would follow (at about 400 V).

It was found that this was the point when many of the teachers exhibited extreme distress and would ask to stop the experiment. However, most participants went on up to maximum shock.

In essence, the experiment was about fooling gullible subjects into murder under pretence of “science and study of learning”. While Milgram study did not generate any qualitatively new results (Nazi and Soviet leaders did the same with thousands of their accomplices), it provided some statistical and situational data about prevalence of obedience and importance of gradualism of punishment, confidence of the experimenter, remoteness of the learner, etc.

Both Hitler’s Nazi propaganda machine and Stalin’s KGB apparatus also fooled thousands of people, under pretence of myths, ideology, and fantasies, into killing innocent people. (Lenin set a prime example himself, when in 1918 he ordered to execute the royal tsar’s family (the Romanovs) with 4 young children included. In 2008, the
Supreme Court of Russia rehabilitated the last Russian tsar and his family announcing their innocence.)

While Nazi’s Holocaust was limited by less than a decade in time, fooled Siberian KGB agents had more time to organize and re-organize themselves during mass murders (1930s-50s) and later years (from the 1960s to present days). Afterwards, they switched to lobotomies, brain-washing, hiding behind, while manipulating local Siberian people, militia, state officials, and others, as well as organizing “random” murders or murders of prominent people and/or their associates in other places and countries.

Hence, the origin of the modern Siberian FSB-KGB was modelled by the Milgram study. After being fooled by the original design of the Lenin’s experiment (“absolute brotherhood, universal equality, bright future, communism and paradise” on paper and murders in real life), stopping murders will lead them to introspection and severe mental distress (as many Nazis experienced during Nuremberg Tribunal). Similar shock of “teachers” after they got up to 400 V was described by Milgram.

More deaths now help modern Siberian KGB agents to displace their attention on others (their reactions and suffering), the same way as it took place during the Milgram study, where attention was focused on the learner and his suffering.

It should be also clear that, should similar conditions exist in any European, or African, or any other country, the effects will be exactly the same. Hence, blaming some vicious “Russian” nature or evilism in the past and current deaths, murders and crimes organized by modern FSB-KGB agents has nothing to do with reality.
