Understanding Self-Inflicted Terror

 
Introduction – A Primer on Terror
The world is full of well-intentioned fools, useful idiots, dupes, stooges, as well as mercenaries and the vile superman. It is often difficult for me to tell which is which. The common pretense among this crowd, whether they be ordinary individuals or elite members of institutions and organizations such as the news media, government, or academia, is so brazenly stupid that it makes distinguishing among them somewhat difficult. The desire to appear simpleton and naïve in the affairs of imperial mobilization; to appear to not want to comprehend the diabolical techniques of deceit by which hegemony is exercised; to appear to not want to comprehend the role of terror, false-flag operations, and self-inflicted wounds that lend 'legal' pretexts for aggression; to appear to not want to comprehend the role of Machiavellian provocation in international relations to exercise foreign policy objectives; to appear to not want to understand the role of false leaders manufactured for false opposition in order to mislead the handful of conscionable citizenry who do not share in the goals of empire; etc., is their one common trait. Well, are they really so insipidly stupid that they can't add 2 + 2 = 4 correctly? Or are they just pretending to be stupid? The former can perhaps still be taught to do basic arithmetic for hardly anyone is really born that stupid. And stupidity, though reprehensible, is hardly a crime in itself, even though it easily leads to monumental crimes against humanity when stupid people “United We Stand” with absurdities and accept atrocities committed in the name of “protecting” them. The latter however, the mercenaries and the superman, shall someday hang as traitors to mankind. Justice has an uncanny way of extracting its purse --- as Robert H. Jackson demonstrated to the old Nazis at Nuremberg in 1946. That sentiment may appear to be wishful thinking today, but tomorrow is another day.


Before we can even begin to understand the external enemy and counter his diabolical modus operandi in self-defence, we must first come to accurate grips with the enemy within which interdicts and preempts that self-defence – ourselves.





Understanding Sellout: The Art and Science of Co-option
Dedicated to my children, and to all young men and women
We often complain, of the world, of its unfairness, its injustices, its deprivation, its inequity, and almost always find others to blame, especially the politicians, the superman, the greedy, the conniving, those seeking primacy, and the sociopaths, the hectoring hegemons, the international bankers who fund all sides to make wars and peace, colonialism, PAX Americana, formerly PAX Britannia, and when all fails, we blame fate, karma, and of course God, that He made the Devil. The Social Darwinians among us, the secular humanists, blame it all on religion, the cause of all of mankind's failings. And the most avant-garde among us, the new age crowd, blame it on aliens, gods who continue to wage epic Hellenic battles at the expense of mankind. The hard empirical reality of course, one which is rarely spoken of, whether out loud or in silent whispers, is that the first failing, the supreme failing from which all else follows, begins at home. It is the one we purchase for ourselves.

This essay, summarizing what I have learnt of the minefield of co-option in my journey as a student of truth, is humbly dedicated to the young generation, of every era, and to my children. It is my profound hope that instead of merely giving importance to these matters towards the tail end of one's professional journey (like American scientist and M.I.T. president Jerome B. Wiesner, like myself, an M.I.T. hammered engineer who also contributed his own two dry straws worth of “mind and hand” during his “youth” in building the Technetronic dystopia now upon the world), or remaining indifferent to the very end, they might engage with reality more forthrightly at the launch of theirs. As Winston Smith, working tirelessly at The Ministry of Truth in London, quietly wrote in his diary in George Orwell's depiction of today's dystopia in his prescient fable Nineteen eighty-four, feeling that he was setting forth an important axiom:
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”
The older generations worldwide have veritably been co-opted to accept the dystopic arithmetic of two plus make five, now being taught ubiquitously by today's version of The Ministry of Truth. Which is why we live in the absurd dark age of War on Terror, the full blown global terror network of the Goldstein of our age in the making. Phantasmally divided today between “al-Qaeda” and “IS”, previously between “al-Qaeda” and “Sadaam's WMD”, covertly armed, aided and abetted as surrogate armies of empire cast in the role of “bad guys” to wage endless wars against, and none harboring lofty moral gravitas in noble Oceania fighting for the cause of liberty against the barbarians, is able to call a spade a spade.
The young generations are the only hope that they learn to navigate the corrupting seas of co-option, self-interest and perspective-pollution with some degree of wherewithal from the very inception of their professional lives. For only then shall they find the courage to do basic arithmetic correctly. All good will naturally follow. Without the skills and courage for basic arithmetic, they will remain caught between self-interest and being useful idiots in every era, stupidly chasing “hope”, “revolution” and “democracy” as the mirages of “change” like their learned elders before them. All evil will continue to beckon. This is the empirical truth.
Youth need not be wasted on the young.





Understanding Manufactured Terror – THE WHY?
Witness the following from the period of the Cold War, where synthetic terror was used in Western Europe in order to convince the increasingly skeptical Western European public that the Communist threat was real – revealed ex post facto in the BBC documentary in 1992 on NATO's Operation Gladio. Part-3 of the Gladio documentary has the following lovely statement quoted from the US Army's Top Secret Field Manual:
Top Secret: There may be times when host country governments show passivity or indecision in the face of Communist subversion ... US Army Intelligence must have the means of launching special operations which will convince host country governments and public opinion of the reality of the insurgent danger ... US Army Intelligence should seek to penetrate the insurgency by means of agents of special assignments, with the task of forming special action groups among the most radical elements of the insurgency.”
Replacing “Communist subversion” in the text above with “Islamofascist terror” or "domestic-terrorists' terror" makes what is being stated in this BBC documentary ominous. It begs the commonsensical question: Is wanton acts of terrorism inflicted upon innocent civilians still a Machiavellian part of statecraft today?
According to James Jesus Angleton, Head of CIA Counter Intelligence Operations from 1954 to 1974, and under whose watch all the momentous terroristic murders of America's most rebellious political leaders transpired (JFK, RFK, MLK, X), Machiavelli is Statecraft: “Deception is a state of mind and the mind of the state”
Click to watch: Operation Gladio - BBC Time Watch 3 Part Series June 1992

Zbigniew Brzezinski, former president Jimmy Carter's national security advisor, observed the following in his 1996 book The Grand Chessboard:
It is also a fact that America is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad. This limits the use of America's power, especially its capacity for military intimidation. Never before has a populist democracy attained international supremacy. But the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public's sense of domestic well-being. The economic self-denial (that is defense spending), and the human sacrifice (casualties even among professional soldiers) required in the effort are uncongenial to democratic instincts. Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization.

Understanding “Plausible Deniability”
During the inception of the Cold War, Harry S. Truman, the 33rd President of the United States, in a 1947 National Security Council directive known as NSC 10/2, signed the Machiavellian idea of “Plausible Deniability” and public deception as essential to undertaking successful covert operations:
'NSC 10/2 directed CIA to conduct “covert” rather than merely “psychological” operations, defining them as all activities “which are conducted or sponsored by this Government against hostile foreign states or groups or in support of friendly foreign states or groups but which are so planned and executed that any US Government responsibility for them is not evident to unauthorized persons and that if uncovered the US Government can plausibly disclaim any responsibility for them.”'
These Machiavellian insight into the calculus of statecraft by American statesmen themselves beg the obvious question: Does “Plausible Deniability” still continue after the end of the Cold War, and if so, how does it manifest itself?

Understanding Surrogate Terror Blamed on Manufactured “Militant Islam”
  • The Muslim mind grossly misperceives the difference between gardeners and weeds. Focussing on weeds, no matter how eruditely, is inconsequential if the diabolical gardeners who secretly water it without revealing their role (wit Brzezinski “God is on your side”), and often also manufacture it (wit Zionism, Islamism), are not dealt with first. Their ‘Übermensch’ mind will always cultivate or synthesize newer varieties as deemed necessary for “imperial mobilization”.
  • The first order problem is not the weeds, which is only the effect. The first order problem is their first-cause, the gardeners. These “weeds” do not grow to this level of social and political penetration all by themselves.
  • The weeds are “tickled” into existence, fertilized, nurtured and harvested by the gardeners for crafting a perpetual enemy to fight against, often times as red herrings.
  • While the unsuspecting public attention remains focussed on the weeds’ attention-grabbing plays in the left-field, the real game of “imperial mobilization” goes on in the right-field in the guise of countering the terror being continually manufactured by these weeds; at times naturally by the very fact of their continually fertilized existence and the “doctrinal motivation” fed to them; at other times on demand as targeted false-flag operations blamed on the weeds who often die in the process; and always by the power of myth construction of an elusive all powerful Ali Baba and his rapidly multiplying surrogates in the now well-fertilized terrain of “militant Islam” who not only threaten all of Westerndom, but the entire civilized world.
  • The modern uniforms of this Western manufactured terror base are those of the Salafi-Wahabi-Deobandis-Taliban-Al-Qaeeda et. al. motif. Only the label and color of uniform varies to give the illusion of multiplying weeds.
  • These vile surrogates and their sub surrogates work for empire no differently than NATO's Stay Behind Armies did, through layers of compartmentalized handlers.
  • The fact that “Saudi petro dollars” are only in proxy service to their masters’ voice is no state-secret.
  • Cut off the gardeners' resupply lines to the weeds, and the weeds will not only die their own natural death with no intelligence apparatuses left to feed them, but that fate can then, finally, also be accelerated by some judicious use of “Roundup”, the weed killer!





Understanding “Worthy Victims” and “Unworthy Victims”
Click to read: Worthy Victims vs. Unworthy Victims
By Chomsky's definition, the “worthy victim” is always worthy of being mourned, as it is made victim by the bad guys or their allies. The “unworthy victim” is unworthy of being mourned or even worrying about, as it is made victim by the good guys or their allies.
And because frequently occurring “worthy victims” continually refuel the necessary “doctrinal motivation, intellectual commitment, and patriotic gratification” to sustain “imperial mobilization” since “democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization” as Zbigniew Brzezinski puts it, it is not beyond empire to create the “worthy victims” itself using the bad guys as stooges.
If you are bothered by these images of “Harmless innocence Melt” (Milton), mercilessly snuffed out in the bud and unworthy of even being mourned by both the massa and its house niggers, then:





Understanding Manufactured Dissent
The whole aim of practical politics of dissent by genuine gadflies to power is to prevent the future fait accompli that is being engineered by 'history's actors' in the present. This is why genuine dissent, that with real teeth and non-zero efficacy, cannot be permitted to exist and flourish. It is instead replaced with manufactured dissent as an essential part of statecraft itself when the illusion of dissent and public opinion is to be maintained in a 'free' democratic society.
Rehearsing crimes of power after these crimes are fait accompli; after all the barbers in town already know it; after their disclosure as the narrative of official history through FOIA declassification, whistle-blowing and deep-throat leaks, and in posthumous confessional diaries of monumental war criminals, none of which really reveal any real secrets, or only do so ex post facto when it is already a fait accompli; is either the job of the professional historian who relies on officialdom to write the official history pre-sanctioned by power by what it chooses to document and what it chooses to make-believe to posterity, or of manufactured dissent!





Understanding the Intellectual Nigger who plays dissent
Malcolm X, assassinated by the “lone gunman” along with other recalcitrant political leaders of the United States in the 1960s, offered the following perceptive description of the house nigger and the massa in his autobiography:
Today's Uncle Tom doesn't wear a handkerchief on his head. This modern, twentieth-century Uncle Thomas now often wears a top hat. He's usually well-dressed and well-educated. He's often the personification of culture and refinement. The twentieth-century Uncle Thomas sometimes speaks with a Yale or Harvard accent. Sometimes he is known as Professor, Doctor, Judge, and Reverend, even Right Reverend Doctor. This twentieth-century Uncle Thomas is a professional Negro ... by that I mean his profession is being a Negro for the white man.” -- (Malcolm X, The Autobiography of Malcolm X, 1964, 1999 hardcover edition, Chapter Black Muslims, page 265)
Martin Luther King Jr., also assassinated by the “lone gunman”, inspired by Malcolm X's unrelenting witticism, also dared to reluctantly capture the mind of the house nigger who eats from the massa's plate thusly:
The white establishment is skilled in flattering and cultivating emerging leaders. It presses its own image on them and finally, from imitation of manners, dress, and style of living, a deeper strain of corruption develops. This kind of Negro leader acquires the white man’s contempt for the ordinary Negro. He is often more at home with the middle-class white than he is among his own people. His language changes, his location changes, his income changes, and ultimately he changes from the representative of the Negro to the white man into the white man’s representative to the Negro. The tragedy is that too often he does not recognize what has happened to him.” -- (Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope, page 307)
Witness the following statement by Lord Babington Macaulay, in his speech before the English Parliament in 1835 devising the new education policy for the Indian sub-continent – the Jewel in the Crown of the British Empire – to deliberately fashion the house nigger to serve empire:
We must at present do our best to form a class who may be interpreters between us and the millions whom we govern, --a class of persons Indian in blood and colour, but English in tastes, in opinions, in morals and in intellect.” -- (Lord Thomas Babington Macaulay, Minute on Education, 2nd February 1835, page 8)
Click to read: What is an Intellectual Negro?
In summation, self-inflicted terror, manufactured by Machiavellian techniques of perception management and narrative control which employ a retinue of stooges, dupes and patsies, is always accompanied by cloaking narratives of the Mighty Wurlitzer in order to make the act of terror achieve its core purpose of mass behavior control. In order to deflect the intelligent people among the public from unraveling the covert agenda and being believed by the masses, villainous methods ranging from “plausible deniability” to alleging “conspiracy theory” are employed to confuse and mislead the rest of the public from believing the unraveling.
Not that complicated is it, once the diabolical methods of Machiavellian statecraft and its engagement with the Hegelian Dialectic are understood. Without achieving that perceptive understanding however, the whole concept of self-inflicted terror indeed appears like a 'kookish' conspiracy theory.





Understanding Current Affairs
So now go and apply all that knowledge and insights learned to understanding current affairs. All larger than life terrorist acts worldwide, from the “terror central” which is Pakistan to the United States' 9/11, London's 7/7 to India's 26/11, and Afghanistan to the Middle East, the so called asymmetric warfare between non-state actors creating “insurgency” and the state-machinery's heavy-handed response called “counter-insurgency”, both designed to augment the perpetually drummed-up international threat of “rogue-states” destroying the civilized world with their ill-gotten WMDs, are part of that same calculus of “imperial mobilization”. The Machiavellian import of the statement: “But the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public's sense of domestic well-being.”, suddenly takes on real empirical dimensions from mere words in an imperial paperback. The publicly reported facts by mainstream news and telling photographic/video images that have emerged on the internet from the Boston Marathon Bombing of 2013, begin to make a lot more sense when viewed from this overarching diabolical calculus, of a self-inflicted Operation Gladio Boston, than what the mainstream narratives echoed from federal, state, and city officialdom would have one believe.
Indeed, a careful re-examination and consequent unlayering of all prior public beliefs that are based primarily on the officialdom's narratives of who committed all these terror acts, and why, from the first catastrophic terrorism on 9/11 in New York to its mostly psy-ops sibling on 4/15 in Boston, can induce severe cognitive dissonance. It is the state of mental discomfort upon realizing that virtually everything one has been led to believe in these matters, may in fact be nothing more than just Alice in Wonderland make-belief. That, the real imperial play going on in the left-field is something else entirely, while the public's attention is diabolically drawn to the staged-theatrics of Islamofascist terror in the right-field!
As soon as one realizes this monumental public fraud, of manufactured and synthetic terror being instrumental for “imperial mobilization”, suddenly all the wonderful people worldwide, from statesmen to politicians to intellectuals, who have led the gullible public to make-believe in the tooth-fairy Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeeda, themselves become the NEW PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE --- Oh what a shift in enemy a mere shift in perspective can make when one learns how to separate propaganda from the reality of the matter:

Caption An FBI video presentation titled “Militancy Considerations” measures the relationship between religion-piety and violence among the followers of the texts of the three Abrahamic faiths [ the god's chosen people obviously coming out on top!!! ] As time goes on, the followers of the Torah and the Bible move from “violent” to “non-violent.” Not so for devotees of the Koran, whose “moderating process has not happened.” The line representing violent behavior from devout Muslims flatlines and continues outward, from 610 A.D. to 2010. In other words, according to this FBI presentation, observes wired.com, the religious Muslims have been and always will be agents of aggression.

So, apply all that sophisticated wherewithal, perspective correction borne of new insights, and understanding of Machiavelli in statecraft to shepherd the public mind, to the re-examination of the most recent so called “Islamofascist terror” event beamed to the worldwide audience, the Boston Marathon Bombing, and make up your own mind:

Understanding “Imperial Mobilization” Today – What is it?
Imperial Mobilization to induce “birth pangs of a new Middle East” is variously blamed upon:
  • the Zionist agenda for Eretz Yisrael ;
  • and/or upon the sole superpower's Primacy and Its Geostrategic Initiatives, as architected by Zbigniew Brzezinski, to preemptively acquire and extract the natural resources in the Middle East and Central Asia before any other nation or group of nations can rise to challenge its dominance.
The former Zionist agenda is pitched as the ungodly wars waged by the Jewish neocons who dominate Washington, blueprinted in their PNAC and other Wolfowitz drawn strategy documents for Securing the Jews-only Realm.
The latter superpower agenda is pitched as the wars of primacy for America's sole preeminence, blueprinted in Zbigniew Brzezinski's The Grand Chessboard and in Pentagon's many Joint Vision strategy documents.
Both premise, while appearing sensible in 2003 when I too employed them in my maiden book Prisoners of the Cave, in the light of today's empiricism outright lead to absurdities.
America is going bankrupt due to these global wars with rising national debt which now stands in the 13 trillion dollar range as officially reported by the US Treasury, and its budget deficit this year, 2011, is 1.4 trillion dollars. This means America has to borrow, i.e., have its central bank the Federal Reserve print, 40 cents for every dollar it spends, thus also commensurately increasing the national debt and the burden upon the already suffering American tax payer.
What sort of idiotic primacy agenda for preeminence is that?
The United States hasn't been able to extract any of the natural resources either from the Middle East and Central Asian soils anymore than she was already extracting previously – as much as it wanted – with its own coddled dictators firmly in power.
Why did she need to wage murderous wars to decimate the region to remove its own cultivated dictators?
It also sure hasn't been good for the Anglo-American oil companies – they can't do business when the region is torn asunder by the cycle of insurgency and counter-insurgency manufactured by the Anglo-American Allies themselves. Same in Afghanistan – no pipelines, only the so called quagmires, as even the mainstream news of the United States puts it.
As for Israel, if Eretz Yisrael is the principal reason for decimating Iraq with millions of tons of Depleted Uranium munitions, destroying its fertile top soils and bountiful water tables, not to mention the ancient DNA of its inhabitants, and with only immense hatred and ire of its millions of Arabs now irretrievably implanted to greet the Zionist from Israel if they ever set foot onto its soil for resettlement, then the Jews can't really occupy that land for themselves now can they?
What did the Israelis really gain by brutally removing the servile Iraqi puppet of their own client state, the United States?
Only chaos in the region!
What Zionistan's founding father, David Ben Gurion, would have easily called “revolutionary times”. Well, according to that science of hegemonic conquest, these chaos-like conditions in the Middle East have also only created more fertile grounds to administer further mind-fcks to the natives because what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”.
What other benefit? Perhaps some smaller equally compliant but unstable ethnic principalities carved out of the former equally compliant monolithic and stable Iraq, which today lies in ruin.
But wait, NO Eretz Yisrael!
Only enormous hatred for Israel, and America.
What an agenda for preeminence!
Only the keystone cops could have blueprinted it.
Hmmm....





Conclusion
It is best summed up in Sun Tzu's The Art of War, for all those handful of resistors who dare to stand up against the macro social evil engulfing mankind but continue to flounder chasing red herrings because of their overly simplistic understanding of the battles before them:
'If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.'
For all the rest of silently spectating mankind, the image below speaks it all:
Silence is a WAR CRIME
Caption Silence is a WAR CRIME: and I still curse the killers, their accomplices, the indifferent spectators who knew and kept silent, and Creation itself, Creation and those who perverted and distorted it. I feel like screaming, howling like a madman so that that world, the world of the murderers, might know it will never be forgiven.” (Nobel Laureate Director of the famous HolocaustTM Museum in Washington DC, Elie Wiesel, the self-proclaimed “traumatized Jew” and “melitz yosher” as the “defender of Israel” after surviving the infamous Nazi HolocaustTM, writing in his memoir All Rivers Run to the Sea)
While the world public may be patiently and expectantly waiting for Allah or Aliens to intervene, and the elite espousing the doctrine of neutrality as “a bridge across a difficult period”, the accumulation of Big Lies of empire as official history is casting Islam, a world religion of 1.6 to 2 billion peoples in the early twenty-first century, as the first-cause of all terror from which all the rest of evil follows. Countless generations are, and will grow up believing these Big Lies of the twenty-first century to be the new unassailable historical truths much like the Jewish HolocaustTM. Posterity is being given a fait accompli. The price of silence is far more pernicious than mere ordinary war crime. It continues to extract its pound of flesh for generations to come, and permanently cripples future epistemology as the new record of history.
That is the present score!
