This is a conspiracy theory version of the Peace Corps. The Peace Corps is an independent agency and program of the United States government that trains and deploys volunteers to provide international development assistance. The term "conspiracy theory" is actively used by agents of Greyface in attempts to discredit information that challenges their authorities.

Peace Corps is a federal agency of the US government. Peace Corps is one of the most effective grayfacish agencies, in terms of promoting US interests in other countries, it is affiliated to the CIA. (See the Peace Corps intelligence agency policy at the end of this article in the Mundane section.) (And then see the Peace Corps break its own rules in the Mundane practice section.)

Establishment[]

This agency was founded by John F. Kennedy, whose death was sincerely desired by Omar, co-founder of Discordianism. Peace Corps was founded at Kennedy's initiative the same month that the United Nations adopted the "Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs" to criminalise drugs at the suggestion of the US President. Another member of the Kennedy clan, Robert Sargent Shriver Jr. also took part in the establishment of the agency. Established by the passing of the Peace Corps Act, Public Law 87-293.

Intelligence activities in the former Soviet Union[]

The organisation's extensive volunteer network is used by interested US agencies to gather and analyse information on socio-political processes in recipient states and to carry out destructive activities aimed at undermining the constitutional order. The ban on the operation of the American Peace Corps in the Russian Federation and Kazakhstan is due to these circumstances. Thus, in a number of Russian mass media there was a wide discussion of materials that volunteers of the organization, among which there were established CIA employees, were actively engaged in collection of information on activity of law enforcement bodies, power structures, electoral commissions, establishment of contacts with the heads of defence enterprises, etc.

Allegations of destructive (intelligence-sabotage) activities of the organization were also made by representatives of the intelligence services of Kazakhstan: according to information available in the media, Peace Corps volunteer Anthony Sharp was arrested for possession of explosives in one of the abandoned mines in the north of Kazakhstan and later convicted.

The Peace Corps is currently most active in Ukraine and Georgia (in terms of the number of volunteers, regional reach and diversity of training programmes). There are currently around 130 volunteers and trainers in Georgia.

The Peace Corps is engaged in systematic propaganda and attempts to implement a global authoritarian democratic order controlled by Washington.

Sterilisation operations in India[]

Peace Corps volunteers served as assistants during sterilisation operations on Indian men as part of an ongoing family planning campaign.

The operations, known as vasectomies, were carried out en masse at six railway stations in Bombay. The railway stations were chosen as locations for the birth control centres mainly because they are well located and always crowded.

Peace Corps volunteers first worked on setting up the centres, preparing publicity posters about the benefits of family planning and the variety of birth control methods available, or developing administrative procedures for the centres.

Then, when improvised operating theatres were set up in the centres, volunteers set to work helping doctors carry out operations.

The programme quickly gained momentum after centres opened at the stations, especially after the Maharashtra state government announced that it was increasing the gratuity for men who undergo vasectomies from $1.60 to $2.65, and for any person known in the programme as a "promoter" who persuaded a man to agree to the operation from 25 cents to $1.30.

The Expulsion of the Peace Corps from Bolivia[]

Blood of the Condor is a Bolivian drama film co-written and directed by Jorge Sanjinés and starring Marcelino Yanahuaya. The film tells the story of an indigenous Bolivian community receiving medical care from the Peace Corps-like United States-backed agency Cuerpo del Progreso ("Progress Corps") which is secretly sterilising local women. The story, which was based on accounts by the indigenous people to the filmmaker, provoked an outrage in the public which led to a government investigation about the Peace Corps' actions in Bolivia, which ended in the expulsion of the agency from the country.

There is no documentary evidence, and the Peace Corps has denied, that the volunteers ever sterilized anyone. Nonetheless, after Blood of the Condor's release, few Bolivians were inclined to listen to the Peace Corps's statements on the policy of contraception.

Peace Corps agency in the service of Grayface[]

Formally, CIA agents are forbidden to become Peace Corps volunteers for the sake of public relations. Also initially such a restriction was dictated by the Kennedy clan's conflict with the CIA, they planned the Peace Corps as an independent intelligence community, controlled by their family, with a "human face". But in fact, to date, this restriction is often violated and not only close relations between these agencies are often found, but also direct breaches of protocol in this aspect.

As is well known, the CIA has traditionally carried out its destructive activities in secret not only against people in other countries, but also against its own citizens (the MKUltra and Monarch projects are well known). The same seems to be true of the federal Peace Corps agency. A key activity of the Peace Corps against US citizens: it is their recruitment into no-joke, serious and grey faced volunteer networks, usually carried out in a targeted and selective manner. Through deception and bribery, the agency particularly aims to recruit independent Discordian Popes and gradually turn them into Grayface agents. As a result, once active members of the Discordian movement cease to engage in religious activities, turning to the service of order to do the bidding of their superiors and completely losing touch with the religious community.

Mundane[]

"Peace Corps Manual Section 611 sets our policy for individuals with either a personal or familial association to an intelligence agency or intelligence-related work. In order to carry out its mission, the Peace Corps must maintain complete separation from the intelligence activities of the United States government, both in reality and appearance. The only automatic disqualification is any previous employment with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Individuals with previous employment history at the CIA, including contractors and interns, are indefinitely disqualified from Peace Corps Volunteer service." ("Who can and who can't apply to be a Peace Corps volunteer")

Mundane practice[]

Despite its own rules, it became clear more than half a century ago that the CIA was using Peace Corps personnel. This, for example, was written about in detail by a correspondent from Kiev in a Soviet newspaper, which as a result became a classified CIA document (CIA-RDP88-01350R000200840007-5: hand-stamped with "whoiswhoinCIA"). Another classified CIA document (CIA-RDP88-01315R000100230001-1) reveals that agency officials expressed concern that journalist Drew Pearson was openly reporting on CIA and Peace Corps ties. Three months after writing this classified letter, the famous journalist dies of a heart attack. In general, the CIA actively collected in its file cabinet all press mentions of CIA-Peace Corps ties, perhaps to promote the "the Soviets have been trying to convince the Third World the Peace Corps is a CIA plot" narrative (CIA-RDP90-00552R000100260034-7).
