Almost all survivors of mind control and ritual abuse have a dissociative mind, even if the dissociation is hidden from public view and perhaps from the survivor him- or herself. Dissociative states of being are necessary adaptations to having to endure ongoing life-threatening trauma in childhood. Organised child abuser groups know about this adaptation, and deliberately structure their victims’ dissociative disorders so that their awful secrets will be kept, not only from the authorities and the outside world, but from the main “front person” inhabiting the victim’s body in everyday life.
