US government via the Public Health Service, the National Institutes of Health, and the Pan American Health Sanitary Bureau funded experiments on STDs headed up by Doctor John Cutler in Guatemala. The experiment infects over 1,500 people in by either giving free access to syphilis infected prostitutes, injections, pouring bacteria onto men’s penises, or exposing to open wounds. Other people were given gonorrhea or chancroid.

The US surgeon general of the time Thomas Parran Jr. was also aware of the experiments, and even stated the only reason they were doing the study in Guatamala was because “we couldn’t do such an experiment in this country”

The united States government admits that they submitted 1,500 people from Guatemala to sexually transmitted diseases (STD) by way of free prostitutes or injections. The date range was from 1946 to 1948 and were headed up by John Cutler who also perpetrated the STD experiments on blacks in Tuskegee.
Of these the most influential is what is called "education." Religion plays a part, though a diminishing one; the press, the cinema, and the radio play an increasing part. What is essential in mass psychology is the art of persuasion. If you compare a speech of Hitler's with a speech of Edmund Burke, you will see what strides have been made in the art since the eighteenth century. What went wrong formerly was that people had read in books that man is a rational animal, and framed their arguments on this hypothesis. We now know that limelight and a brass band do more to persuade than can be done by the most elegant train of syllogisms. It may be hoped that in time anybody will be able to persuade anybody of anything if the can catch the patient young and is provided by the State with money and equipment.
