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
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:
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”

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:
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”
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:
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:
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:
Read Zahir's take on the modern variant of this ancient House Nigger, the Intellectual Nigger, who pretends to be the greatest champion of the downtrodden in the name of dissent, but principally echoes the massa's core-lies to shepherd the disbelieving flock to the same make-belief
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 Perspective Pollution: Like an innocent child not being able to comprehend the reality of feline primacy, Pollyannaish perspectives and gratuitous faith in sanctified narratives preclude understanding of reality the way reality actually is. (Image courtesy of Desiree L. Rover's Presentation on Vaccinations, August 1, 2009)
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:
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:
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!
