NATO’s Plans to Hack Your Brain
NATO is spinning out an Entirely New Kind of Combat it has branded Cognitive Warfare, Ben Norton reports.
NATO is developing New Forms of Warfare to wage a “Battle for the Brain,” as the Military Alliance put it.
The US led NATOMilitary Cartel has tested Novel Modes of Hybrid Warfare against its Self Declared Adversaries, including Economic Warfare, Cyber Warfare, Information Warfare and Psychological Warfare.
Now, NATO is spinning out an entirely New Kind of Combat it has branded Cognitive Warfare. Described as the “Weaponization of Brain Sciences,” the New Method involves “Hacking the Individual” by Exploiting “theVulnerabilities of the Human Brain” in order to implement More Sophisticated “Social Engineering.”
Until recently, NATO had Divided War into Five different Operational Domains: Air, Land, Sea, Space, and Cyber. But with its Development of Cognitive Warfare Strategies, the Military Alliance is discussing a New, Sixth Level: the “Human Domain.”
A2020 NATO Sponsored Study of this New Form of Warfare clearly explained, “While Actions tkaen in the Five Domains are Executed in Order to have an Effect on the Human Domain, Cognitive Warfare’s Objective is to Make Everyone a Weapon.”
“The Brain will be the Battlefield of the 21st Century,” the Report stressed. “Humans are the Contested Domain,” and “Future Conflicts will likely Occur amongst the People Digitally First and Physically Thereafter in Proximity to Hubs of Political and Economic Power.”

While the NATO Backed Study insisted that much of its Research on Cognitive Warfare is designed for Defensive Purposes, it also conceded that the Military Alliance is developing Offensive Tactics, stating, “The Human is very often the Main Vulnerability and it should be Acknowledged In Order to Protect NATO’s Human Capital but also To Be Able to Benefit from our Adversaries’ Vulnerabilities.”
In a Chilling Disclosure, the Report said explicitly that “the Objective of Cognitive Warfare is To Harm Societies and Not Only the Military.”
With Entire Civilian Populations in NATO’s Crosshairs, the Report emphasized that Western Militaries must Work More Closely with Academia to Weaponize Social Sciences and Human Sciences and Help the Alliance Develop its Cognitive Warfare Capacities.
The Study described this Phenomenon as “the Militarization of Brain Science.” But it appears clear that NATO’s Development of Cognitive Warfare will lead to a Militarization of all Aspects of Human Society and Psychology, from theMost Intimate of Social Relationships to the Mind itself.
Such All Encompassing Militarization of Society is Reflected in the Paranoid Tone of the NATO Sponsored Report, which Warned of “an Embedded Fifth Column, where Everyone, Unbeknownst to Him or Her, is Behaving according to the Plans of one of our Competitors.” The Study makes it clear that those “Competitors” Purportedly Exploiting the Consciousness of Western Dissidents are China and Russia.
In other words, this Document shows that Figures in the NATOMilitary Cartel Increasingly See their Own Domestic Population as a Threat, Fearing Civilians to be Potential Chinese or Russian Sleeper Cells, dastardly “Fifth Columns” that Challenge the Stability of “Western Liberal Democracies.”
NATO’s Development of Novel Forms of Hybrid Warfare come at a Time when Member States’ Military Campaigns are Targeting Domestic Populations on an Unprecedented Level.
TheOttawa Citizen reported this September that the Canadian Military’s Joint Operations Command took advantage of the Covid 19 PandemicTo Wage an Information War against its own Domestic Population, Testing out Propaganda Tactics on Canadian Civilians.
Internal NATO Sponsored Reports suggest that this Disclosure is just scratching the Surface of a Wave of New Unconventional Warfare Techniques that Western Militaries are employing around the World.
Canada Hosts Cognitive Warfare Event
Twice each year, NATO holds a “Pitch Style Event” that it brands as an “Innovation Challenge.” These Campaigns – One hosted in the Spring and the Other in the Fall, by Alternating Member States – Call on Private Companies, Organizations, and Researchers to help Develop New Tactics and Technologies for the Military Alliance.
The Shark Tank likeChallenges reflect the Predominant Influence of Neoliberal Ideology within NATO, as Participants mobilise the Free Market, Public Private Partnerships and the Promise of Cash Prizes to Advance the Agenda of the Military Industrial Complex.
