Lifting the Veil
An Investigative History of the United States Pathocracy
Researched and Written by Timothy M. Silver
“I know the capacity that is there to make tyranny total in America. We must see
to it that this agency and all agencies that possess this technology operate within
the law and under proper supervision, so that we never cross over that abyss.
That is the abyss from which there is no return.”
~~ U.S. Senator Frank Church, 1975

Snowden: saving us from the United Stasi of America,” June 10, 2013

"The problem of the Pathocracy seems to be so vast and complex; it is certainly
intimidating. We are fortunate that the solutions are relatively simple. It begins and ends
with education and non-participation. Ignorance is the sole tool that keeps the
Pathocracy afloat. It's truly this easy. An awake populace can collectively choose to stop
holding the pyramid above their shoulders by refusing to oil the gears of the machine.
We need to collectively move our money out of big banks, support local enterprise over
multinational corporations, and be excessively vocal about the truth."

It has been a little over a year since I first read about the Central Intelligence Agency program
known as
MK-ULTRA, which was dedicated to exploring the vast possibilities of 'biological
behavioral engineering', also known as mind control. I was stunned by the depth of the horror
unleashed on the unwitting victims of the program, less than a decade removed from the
Nuremberg Trials which concluded that never again should scientists experiment on subjects
without their willing consent.
I was impressed that the Agency (CIA) deftly avoided any significant reform, even after multiple
congressional inquiries into their illegal, unconstitutional activities which the disclosure of MK-
ULTRA prompted, and was disturbed by the complete lack of information regarding the program
in the general public. Most shocking, despite Agency insistence to the contrary, was the
documented evidence that their mission of controlling the human mind bore significant
As an aspiring historian, I set off to work on turning over every stone related to covert
intelligence activities and other suppressed history, created the pen name Morgan Martell and
began publishing my research on a blog titled 'The Peoples History'. Since then, I have read
dozens of books and thousands of mainstream media articles, interviews, scientific studies and
primary documents in my quest for knowledge.
Before long I came to the understanding that I was not just learning about a series of unrelated
clandestine agency abuses and financial crimes, but rather was researching various disclosures
of an organized subversive network working behind the scenes. A bold statement like this
requires bold evidence, of course, and I invite you to investigate the over 500 citations of
publicly available, mainstream sources yourself and come to your own conclusions.
I used the name Morgan Martell for a brief period because I was worried that my work would
attract the wrong kind of attention. In fact, when I first wrote about the MK-ULTRA project, I
deliberately omitted some information, not because I thought it was unimportant or that it lacked
sufficient documentation, but because some of the documented history is so shocking that I was
afraid to write about it.
The revelations of Edward Snowden, beginning on June 6, 2013, changed my mind about the
secrecy. The NSA knows exactly who I am and what I am researching, so you might as well too.
I promise that nothing I have learned which can be corroborated has been left out of this book,
even when facing the depths of depravity unleashed by certain psychopaths in position of
Whether you are approaching this work from a vantage point of exploring new ideas,
learning more about topics that already interest you, or if you are antagonistic to the idea
that something is 'not quite right' with the United States today, I urge you to have an
open mind and to be prepared to synthesize new information into your worldview.
Every day I strive to learn new things and explore new ideas, a fact which has delayed the
release of this book for some months as I continuously refined and expanded the thesis. If you
have alternative ideas you would like to share, criticism to offer, or have additional research that
would augment this work, please do not hesitate to contact me. I thoroughly enjoy the
'Lifting the Veil' is structured in a way that discusses two startling problems with the current
political system in the United States today, and then jumps to 1946 and works forward in time to
shed light on how these problems came about. Woven in is information on psychopathy and
its relationship to politics and power, my own conclusions drawn from the information,
and 'food for thought' questions. The final portion of the book ties together the pieces of
the puzzle and presents potential, non-partisan solutions we can take to affect change.
I ask one thing from you, the reader, before embarking on this journey. Once you finish, if you
believe that this work is important, please resolve yourself to share it with at least two people,
whether they are someone you know in real life, online acquaintances or anonymous recipients.
I have released this book free for a reason. It is the only way this information will spread to a
point where it will reach a 'critical mass'. Once it does, change will be inevitable. Lets endeavor
to make this happen as soon as possible.
Thanks for reading,
Timothy M. Silver

"In the mid-'80s, if you remember... Saudi Arabia and the United States were supporting the
Mujahideen to liberate Afghanistan from the Soviets. He [Osama bin Laden] came to thank me
for my efforts to bring the Americans, our friends, to help us against the atheists, he said the
communists. Isn't it ironic?" Prince Bandar bin Sultan of Saudi Arabia, on Larry King Live
