Eminent Monsters: A Manual for Modern Torture

IN-DEPTH VIDEOS, 18 May 2020

Stephen Bennett and Mark Fallon | Christal Frost – TRANSCEND Media Service

Eminent Monsters is a documentary involving extensive research and interviews. Focusing on the use of psychological torture that breaks the mind without physical evidence of harm, the film is a devastating exposure of the shocking and systematic abuse by the governments of Britain and the United States of their own citizens.

It has immediate relevance regarding the treatment being meted out to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, which Professor Nils Melzer, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture, has described as psychological torture.

Director Stephen Bennett and former Dept. of Defense Chief Investigator Mark Fallon join us for a discussion of Bennett’s disturbing documentary “Eminent Monsters,” which investigates the psychological torture experiments of the 1950’s—the foundation of the “torture manual” for interrogation methods used today. Bennett gives us the history of the sensory deprivation torture methods of psychiatrist Dr. Ewan Cameron, while Fallon shares his expertise in counter-terrorism and his hope for the U.S. Government to reconstruct their current interrogation methods.

One Response to “Eminent Monsters: A Manual for Modern Torture”

  1. Inhuman Torture:
    History of the whole world is the sordid tales of victims of inhuman torture. If the cruel animals and poisonous insects would be able to speak in human language, they would laugh and speak on worst form of human cruelty committed on their fellow beings.
    Remedy:
    Elders and guardians – parents, teachers, preachers, and rulers and bureaucrats, judges, lawyers, police, army and persons in authority in the nation-states, and persons working in the United Nations must be enlightened by learning and practicing perpetually the concept of universal peace education based on universally inherent five elements, viz. body, vitality, mind, intellect and spirit in them also to be manifested integrally being just and peaceful, and to set their examples providing means, resources and opportunity to the younger and wards – sons and daughters, students, followers of sects, masses and common people, litigants in disputes, victims and accused, people in danger of natural calamities, and victims of torture, violence and war.

    Ignorance about Man, the Only Reason; Universal Peace Education, the Only Prevention of Torture
