“In so many of the little places of everyday life in which life is lived out, somehow democracy doesn’t exist. And one of the creeping hands of totalitarianism running through the democracy is the Federal Bureau of Investigation… Because why does the FBI do all this? To scare the hell out of people… They work for the establishment and the corporations and the politicos to keep things as they are. And they want to frighten and chill the people who are trying to change things.”Howard Zinn, historian
Discredit, disrupt, and destroy. That is how the government plans to get rid of activists and dissidents who stand in its way.
This has always been the modus operandi of the FBI (more aptly referred to as the Federal Bureau of Intimidation): muzzle anti-government sentiment, harass activists, and terrorize Americans into compliance.
Indeed, the FBI has a long history of persecuting, prosecuting and generally harassing activists, politicians, and cultural figures.
Back in the 1950s and ‘60s, the FBI’s targets were civil rights activists, those suspected of having Communist ties, and anti-war activists. In more recent decades, the FBI has expanded its reach to target so-called domestic extremists, environmental activists, and those who oppose the police state.
Back in 2019, President Trump promised to give the FBI “whatever they need” to investigate and disrupt hate crimes and domestic terrorism, without any apparent thought for the Constitution’s prohibitions on such overreach.
That misguided pledge sheds a curious light on the FBI’s latest nationwide spree of SWAT team raids, surveillance, disinformation campaigns, fear-mongering, paranoia, and strong-arm tactics.
For instance, just before dawn on Jan. 25, 2019, the FBI sent 29 heavily armed agents in 17 vehicles to carry out a SWAT-style raid on the Florida home of Roger Stone, one of President Trump’s longtime supporters. Stone, charged with a political crime, was taken away in handcuffs.
In March 2021, under the pretext of carrying out an inventory of U.S. Private Vaults, FBI agents raided 1400 safe deposit boxes in Beverly Hills, seizing “more than $86 million in cash as well as gold, jewelry, and other valuables from property owners who were suspected of no crimes.”
In April 2021, FBI agents raided Rudy Giuliani’s home and office, seizing 18 electronic devices. More than a year later, Giuliani has yet to be charged with any crimes.
In June 2022, Jeffrey Clark, a former Justice Department official under the Trump Administration, was led out of his home in pajamas while federal law enforcement officials raided his home.
In the summer of 2022, FBI agents wearing tactical gear including body armor, helmets and camouflage uniforms and carrying rifles raided multiple homes throughout Little Rock, Ark., including a judge’s home.
In August 2022, more than a dozen FBI agents searched Mar-a-Lago, the winter home of Donald Trump.
And in September 2022, 25 to 30 armed FBI agents raided the home of an anti-abortion activist, pointing guns at the family and terrorizing the man’s wife and seven children.
Politics aside, the message is clear: this is how the government will deal with anyone who challenges its authority.
Unfortunately, while these overreaching, heavy-handed lessons in how to rule by force have become standard operating procedure for a government that communicates with its citizenry primarily through the language of brutality, intimidation and fear, none of this is new.
The government has been playing these mind games for a long time.
As Betty Medsger, an investigative reporter for The Washington Post, noted in 1971, the FBI was engaged in practices that had never been reported, probably were unconstitutional, and were counter to the public’s understanding of the agency’s purpose.
The objective: target anti-government dissenters for wide-scale harassment, widespread surveillance and intimidation in order to enhance their paranoia and make them think there was an “FBI agent behind every mailbox.”
Medsger, the recipient of stolen government files that provided a glimpse into the workings of the nation’s most powerful law enforcement agency, would later learn that between 1956 and 1971, the FBI conducted an intensive domestic intelligence program, termed COINTELPRO, intended to neutralize domestic political dissidents.
The explicit objective, according to one FBI memo: “expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit, or otherwise neutralize” perceived threats to the government’s power.
As Congressman Steve Cohen explains:
“COINTELPRO was set up to surveil and disrupt groups and movements that the FBI found threatening… many groups, including anti-war, student, and environmental activists, and the New Left were harassed, infiltrated, falsely accused of criminal activity.”
Sound familiar? The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Those targeted by the FBI under COINTELPRO for its intimidation, surveillance and smear campaigns included: Martin Luther King Jr., Malcom X, the Black Panther Party, Billie Holiday, Emma Goldman, Aretha Franklin, Charlie Chaplin, Ernest Hemingway, Felix Frankfurter, John Lennon, and hundreds more.
Among those most closely watched by the FBI was King, a man labeled by the FBI as “the most dangerous and effective Negro leader in the country.” All told, the FBI collected 17,000 pages of materials on King.
With wiretaps and electronic bugs planted in his home and office, King was kept under constant surveillance by the FBI with the aim of “neutralizing” him. He even received blackmail letters written by FBI agents suggesting that he either commit suicide or the details of his private life would be revealed to the public. The FBI kept up its pursuit of King until he was felled by a hollow-point bullet to the head in 1968.
John Lennon, a vocal peace protester and anti-war activist, was another high-profile example of the lengths to which the Deep State will go to persecute those who dare to challenge its authority.
Lennon was singled out for daring to speak truth to power about the government’s warmongering, his phone calls monitored and data files illegally collected on his activities and associations.
For a while, at least, Lennon became enemy number one in the eyes of the U.S. government.
Years after Lennon’s assassination, it would be revealed that the FBI had collected 281 pages of files on him, including song lyrics.
J. Edgar Hoover, head of the FBI at the time, directed the agency to spy on the musician. There were also various written orders calling on government agents to frame Lennon for a drug bust. “The FBI’s files on Lennon … read like the writings of a paranoid goody-two-shoes,” observed reporter Jonathan Curiel.
As the New York Times notes, “Critics of today’s domestic surveillance object largely on privacy grounds. They have focused far less on how easily government surveillance can become an instrument for the people in power to try to hold on to power. ‘The U.S. vs. John Lennon’ … is the story not only of one man being harassed, but of a democracy being undermined.”
Indeed, all of the many complaints we have about government today—surveillance, militarism, corruption, harassment, SWAT team raids, political persecution, spying, overcriminalization, etc.—were present in Lennon’s day and formed the basis of his call for social justice, peace and a populist revolution. As Adam Cohen of the New York Times points out, “The F.B.I.’s surveillance of Lennon is a reminder of how easily domestic spying can become unmoored from any legitimate law enforcement purpose. What is more surprising, and ultimately more unsettling, is the degree to which the surveillance turns out to have been intertwined with electoral politics.”
The Church Committee, the Senate task force charged with investigating COINTELPRO abuses in 1975, echoed these concerns about the government’s abuses:
“Too many people have been spied upon by too many Government agencies and too much information has been collected. The Government has often undertaken the secret surveillance of citizens on the basis of their political beliefs, even when those beliefs posed no threat of violence or illegal acts on behalf of a hostile foreign power.”
The report continued:
“Groups and individuals have been harassed and disrupted because of their political views and their lifestyles. Investigations have been based upon vague standards whose breadth made excessive collection inevitable. Unsavory and vicious tactics have been employed—including anonymous attempts to break up marriages, disrupt meetings, ostracize persons from their professions, and provoke target groups into rivalries that might result in deaths. Intelligence agencies have served the political and personal objectives of presidents and other high officials.”
Fifty years later, we’re still having this same debate about the perils of government overreach.
For too long now, the American people have allowed their personal prejudices and politics to cloud their judgment and render them incapable of seeing that the treatment being doled out by the government’s lethal enforcers has remained consistent, no matter the threat.
The lesson to be learned is this: whatever dangerous practices you allow the government to carry out now, rest assured, these same practices can and will be used against you when the government decides to set its sights on you.
All of the excessive, abusive tactics employed by the government and its henchmen today will eventually be meted out on the general populace.
At that point, when you find yourself in the government’s crosshairs, it will not matter whether your skin is black or yellow or brown or white; it will not matter whether you’re an immigrant or a citizen; it will not matter whether you’re rich or poor; it will not matter whether you’re Republican or Democrat; and it certainly won’t matter who you voted for in the last presidential election.
At that point—when you find yourself subjected to dehumanizing, demoralizing, thuggish behavior by government bureaucrats who are hyped up on the power of their badges and empowered to detain, search, interrogate, threaten and generally harass anyone they see fit—remember you were warned.
Frankly, as I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, we are long past the point where we should be merely alarmed.
These are no longer experiments on our freedoms.
These are acts of aggression by a government that is no friend to freedom.

Now you know what a conspiracy theorist is for. To cover up the truth.
We in South Africa are now seeing the very same tactic being attempted.
A newly proposed bill called
“Protection of Constitutional Democracy against Terrorist and Related Activities Amendment Bill”
“If you are awaiting a finding of ‘clear and present danger’, then I can only say that the danger has never been more clear; and, its presence has never been more imminent. It requires a change in outlook, a change in tactics, a change in mission; by the government, by the people, by every businessman or labor leader and by every newspaper.
For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence; on infiltration instead of invasion; on subversion instead of elections; on intimidation instead of free choice; on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day.
It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly-knit, highly-efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published; its mistakes are buried, not headlined; its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned; no rumor is printed; no secret is revealed. It conducts the Cold War in short, with a war-time discipline no democracy would ever hope or wish to match… there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment.”
– John F. Kennedy –
Then the television spewed out the next commercial, and the audience went to sleep…
In war truth is always lost. Then wars are not about truth: they are about power. But power is an illusion. For that reason every empire in history has eventually faced the conflict it was fighting to avoid – its own destruction.
Thank you Peter McLoughlin
These strategies were used in a much more sinister way in the Civil war in the six counties. For example under the Irish Free State 30 year rule for releasing documents, a letter from the Ulster Volunteer Force was sent to Charles Haughey, a Irish Taoiseach ( Prime Minster), informing him that the Crown Forces were trying to coerce them to have him assassinated because of his support for the Irish Republican movement.
They had more luck with other people such as Brian Nelson and others who worked for the death squads of the U.F.F, UDA, Red Hand Commando plus others who murdered in cold blood many many innocent Catholic’s besides republicans. The strategy of tension was used to a similar effect as the F.B.I : intimidation, fear, paranoia plus of course trying to ensure the people would not support the Republicans.
Greetings for all those who liked the fiery words for defending traditional values of the new (blond hair) Italian prime minister, who is pointed by some as a conservative blade against the globalists.
“Dear @@ZelenskyyUa, you know that you can count on our loyal support for the cause of freedom of Ukrainian people. Stay strong and keep your faith steadfast!
Menachem Begin surfaced in Los Angeles after the King David hotel bombing and was hosted by Meyer Lansky’s local mobster representative (Mickey Cohen ?). The FBI and the more than 30 covert American agencies obviously had no problem with that.
After the 15th paragraph/story… I was still waiting to see how the FBI was the bad guys…
What? You need anything to know that? Good fucking grief.
Whatever can be said of the fbi, thier apparatus was set up by a a paranoid tranvestite. They have numerous patsy’s ready to go. They tried to bomb the twin towers before it was fashionable and profitable.
The fbi, was good, but now is awful and dangerous.
Um, you can never quarantine the past.
On the plus side, Pavement are touring again,
I think those with eyes to see now know that governments are not our representatives but the lackeys of corporations and the 1%ers. It’s just that other than non-compliance until they come for you, no-one seems to know what to do about it.
Don’t know who wants to hear this but we are jelly brains walking and thinking and loving.We are not what I just described but there’s people that think we are hackable?!?They don’t understand the human being 👍
I agree with you.
Exactly the same with the WEF ideologies are very dangerous for humanity
Like inflation it will be more …..
Victory for Lawyer, Aaron Siri who has finally obtained the reports that the CDC didn’t want you to see.
7.7% of 10 million had to seek medical care post inject.
A staggering 25% missed work and had some serious event affecting their normal lives.
The truth is coming out!!
Like a sly fox Pfizer, Moderna, etc. were advertising on Fox. Dont forget that part!
This aspect of our current nightmarish reality isn’t going to change. Nobody we know is going to dismantle the fbi and build it up again from scratch, this time including a moral compass in the equation.
We need to find a way of convincing the establishment to want to represent actual human beings…
Otherwise coming generations will consist of nothing but robotic zomboids, and the Earth’s evolution will have been for nothing.
What do you mean rebuild the FBI et al from scratch? Do you mean establish nicer thugs? Nicer spies?
LOL. Where am I?
Hey man,we need to vote better too and like pick better kings and princes.
It’s the current situation and the current prospects I’m describing. Not what I would like…
The whole comment gives an idea of what I mean.
Evolution was doing fine until humans came along… We need to convince the establishment that they are no longer the establishment.
Social “organizations” represent conflicts in terms which mutate into conflicts of interest. Conflicts of interest create wars and civil unrest. Winners? Extortionist constructs. Losers? Everyone else…
Government “agencies” should evolve into obsolete social constructs and past tense terminology.
That’s definitely close to the direction in which my thoughts take me.
I would just add that I see earth’s evolution and man’s evolution as part of the same goal.
It is of course a biblical thing, but it makes sense that man and earth were once one and the same thing; then man became self-conscious without being mature enough to handle the responsibility of the possibilities thus offered, and perhaps the goal might be that man will once again become united with the earth as a kind of organism, only this time he will have matured enough to know consciously what he is doing, and he will take upon himself the responsibility for his own individual stance.
I am no prophet, so I cannot say how this will work out, but I have read quite a lot of material from others more convincingly prophetic than I – material which outlines the sense in such a scenario.
Very thoughtful, indeed… Mans evolution was inspired by the same physical processes as the Earth, which spawned all known life forms.
Billions of years since the first spark. Trillions upon trillions of myriad synapses. Still no cigar… I remain skeptical yet hopeful…
We used to have a couple of FBI agents living next door to us. They had a couple of small children. They were like any other neighbor — yard work on Saturday, kids in school and so on with just a hint of a difference, like me coming across the husband in the downtown Federal building, being addressed by my first name by an armed FBI agent is a bit weird until you realize its really the next door neighbor. (Then there’s the literal Man In Black who dropped by to ask my wife about the neighbors, just a routine background check).
For better or worse all urban law enforcement looks like an invading army these days. So the rather embattled Los Angeles County sheriff has a beef with one of the county supervisors so he sends a party to raid her house for evidence. Being tone deaf they turn up early in the morning, tooled up as if they were about to raid a drug den, drag the supervisor out, search the house, carry off computers and other ‘evidence’……and get the Mother Of All Political Backlashes.
As for the FBI as an organization, its roots go back to the beginning of the 20th century. Its most commonly associated with J. Edgar Hoover led it after it was formally constituted and featured prominently in the war (literally) against gangsters in the 1930s. Hoover’s grasp of media savvy, knowing how to feed mass media, made it into a sort of personal fiefdom where its priorities reflected his personal beliefs and prejudices. So in addition to rooting out ‘communists’ — basically anyone who didn’t support the political status quo and trade unionists who sought genuine labor reform, he went after people like civil rights advocates. More recently the notion of subversion from the right has surfaced so now everyone seems suprised — no, shocked! — that the FBI would keep tabs on these individuals and groups (because as we all know, they’re dyed in the wool patriots). The FBI is just showing itself to be equal opportunity; like my old neighbors they’re just doing their job within their interpretation of the Constitution. Welcome to the Deep State, folks!
In case you know someone who doesn’t understand, here’s a pleasant little UK video that explains what digital money is for.
I never trusted this guy and was perplexed why offg publishes his nonsense.
Eventually like the others who dont appear on hear anymore, it maybe takes some people a little bit longer to spot a shill.
Midterms shilling and absolute donkey ness in pseudo article writing ..
Giuliani who was reinvented with the Q maga movement as a hero has been a dodgy fuk since he started out. This FBI against is bollocks to sell the look look look they get put on the watch lists and houses raided. I dont believe it one bit. But it sells the trump Conservative narrative feeding the illusion of politics.
today they post this above crap. Why..?
Hear we again with another load of nonsense story keeping the believers going..
DOJ was arrested by the deep state in this case FBI. smell bullshit anyone.?
This one is the biggest psy op so far. Twitter had this one number in it feed in every country for nearly 8 day that is really against and censoring when there number 1 for near 2 week in the news in midterm season.
This type of stuff is aimed at a demography of people who have drunk the coooliad to the point of needing a stomach pump.
lol, see my comment above if you will (if it only appears that is)… hey why don’t u answer that, see if I get a notice email
I know for a fact that the Whiteheads are funded by George Soros to try to make people believe that the police state and fascism and authoritarianism and all that bs is real. I can’t reveal my source at this time, but take my word for it. The truth will come out. Power to the People!
It’s extremely naive to imagine that everyone put under FBI surveillance is automatically a good guy and a genuinely oppositional figure. Look at some of the people who reputedly were under MI5 surveillance at some time…. Harriet Harman…. Peter Mandelson…. Gosh, how the deep state must have trembled!
How to explain this? It’s probably a mixture of gathering dirt and establishing important personalities in the narrative. Some lower investigators were undoubtedly lunatics who thought anyone to the left of J. Edgar Hoover a dangerous subversive and they wouldn’t have needed much encouragement. Funny how all those millionaire and billionaire with odd political views seemed to have escaped investigation though. Jacob Schiff didn’t end up in Alcatraz for supporting the Bolshevik Revolution!
The emphasis on Lennon is peculiar. There seems a lot of attempted damage limitation on the official Beatles’ narrative going on (the Fraud had two stories on them on the same day earlier this week). Sorry, but that narrative has fallen apart under sustained investigation from an army of researchers (not just Miles Mathis – try Tina Foster, Mike Williams, Matt Sergiou, Mark Devlin and many others). There’s the very odd book ‘The Memoirs of Billy Shears’ to be explained away – why hasn’t McCartney acted against it (it accuses him of fraud), how did the author get permission to include song lyrics and why did George Martin’s son read the audio version?
I don’t have a settled view on what The Beatles were – except the official narrative is mainfestly nonsense. Secret society and deep state markers swirl around the band. What a coincidence, for example, that they put out the utterly bizarre song ‘Maxwell’s Silver Hammer’ and the head of MI6 just happened to be Maxwell Knight (the model for ‘M’). Different people clearly played different members of the band at different times – it’s most obvious with McCartney (the person 1962-66 is shorter and has a rounder face than the post-1967 version) but it’s true of the others as well. It’s obviously not John Lennon in HOW I WON THE WAR for example.
Most probably, The Beatles were a re-run of the Shakespeare hoax for the new Elizabethan age i.e. a cultural phenomena set up for social engineering. Both were wriiten by secret colleges, some known in other guises (Adorno? Innes?) and some destined to be forever in the shadows. The Beatles couldn’t play their instruments well enough for recording standard and their music is mostly session musicians like most ‘bands’ in the 1960s. The Monkees were the revelation of the method about how the whole thing worked.
I’m as interested as anyone in a good conspiracy, but I’ve never yet seen any convincing evidence that the Beatles as a musical unit were a sham and that Adorno actually wrote their music. For instance, John Coleman presents this theory without a shred of material evidence. I don’t doubt at all that they may have had intelligence connections and that to a certain extent they fulfilled a role in deep state manipulation of society. Lennon has openly declared that, ‘Yes, we wanted to change the world.’ but is that really evidence of anything other than contemporary counter-cultural idealism? Mathis work on their genealogy is interesting and McGowan’s work on Laurel Canyon is revelatory for the sheer number of military connections which prominent US 60s bands had, but I think it’s easy to get carried away with these things…
Adorno, along with the rest of the Frankfurt School, was a CIA stooge who provided the invaluable service of sculpting the Left flank of American Empire ideology by rolling out the apparently inexhaustible emphasis on the Nazis and anti-Semitism which, to this very day, totally castrates all critical thought even to the threshold of covid. Cf. Adorno’s Authoritarian Personality, republished just in time for the new bubonic in its full 1,000+ pages and which acted as a Bible for the rising academic Left. (This gospel had an “anti-Semitic” scale, which proves that if you look for it, you’ll always find it.)
And whilst the WSWS and cohorts grind on the pandemic propaganda in its purest form, any indication of actual insight on the Left front was derailed by the Adornion waffle-burger cf. John Steppling’s latest which explicitly links suspicion of conspiracy with, yes, you guessed it, anti-Semitism. The bitterness of this is underscored by the fact that Steppling himself has shown that he knows full well that covid is bollocks. Ah but then there’s that old mimetic reification of the dialectical didgeridoo and we all may as well line up for a rehash of the boos against Corbyn for planning the new Auschwitz in England’s green and pleasant. There’s no stopping that Holocaust bandwagon. Even Simon Elmer’s account of the covid claptrap, by far the best – indeed possibly the only – decent Leftist account of the last 2 ½ years, gets bogged down by an interminable and irrelevant introduction of the old fascist roll call.
As for Adorno writing Yellow Submarine – if only!
Edwige gets my vote.
”Adorno, along with the rest of the Frankfurt School, was a CIA stooge who provided the invaluable service of sculpting the Left flank of American Empire ideology … ”
And so on and so forth. There seems to be a strange fixation of unheard (to most) defunct theorists who are somehow regarded as being tremendously important in current political debates and political jousting. Of course, nobody has actually read anything of the said Mr Adorno who died in 1952 – who the same could be said of lesser or more contributors of the Frankfurt School.
And then there is the current fixation with something called the WSWS – I think that I have got that right, but it appears to me something rather ordinary. Something apparently of world-shaking importance according to Mr Mc.
Mind you – At its best Marxism contains penetrating, indispensable, historically defined critiques of capitalist economy, society, and a culture and powerful method of dialectical analysis. But of course, this was to lapse into a dogmatic faith of historical inevitability which was/is a carryover of a dogmatic faith in historical inevitability which became the dominant strain in pseudo-marxist and its friends and enemies. But there we go. For better or worse, nobody pays much attention to these ‘polemics’ and internecine squabbles – some not a million miles from here.
I’ve had a copy of “Eros and Civilization’ by Herbert Marcuse (Frankurt School) since 0ctober 1988; have read it 5 or 6 times. It’s not an easy read, unless you’re a surface reader, but it’s worth the effort…
Some books have humbled me, exposed to me how little i know about what i think i know…
Adorno died in ’69. And he may be unknown to most but the paradigm he helped create is nothing less than the greatest thought stopper blocking genuine dissident thought. And yes it is important that the generally accepted oppositional force I.e the Left, has been hopelessly neutered and still can’t get it’s act together 2+ years into the greatest assault against the population.
How is Adorno’s study of authoritarian personality ”the greatest thought stopper”? Critical theory studied modern capitalism, authoritarianism, mass media and sociocultural structures that had led to nazism and mass murder in WW2. Early studies in authoritarian personality concentrate on the jews because mass extermination of them in Germany was such a clear case of group prejudice.
Have you read any Critical theory?
Not taking any sides here, the stories constantly flowing at present into the main stream bs media and the internet about the beatles seems to be intended to keep the mythology of the fab4 alive, beyond a simple commercial interest, but let’s take a different angle to this for a second, simply for the sake of argument, it looks like the whiteheads are clearly thinking there are no doubts in their view about who lennon was, simply a famous musician with a loud mouth and thus a “loose cannon”, daring to speak the truth, capable to reach millions and open people’s eyes with his free and sometimes insightful comments, but… they seem to ignore the theories or even pieces of physical evidence that lennon himself might have been constructed as an image, “a concept”, to quote the God song lyrics, a “character”, in the literature sense, a brand, and an “influencer”, decades before the notion became common-place, there are several discrepancies about all the 4 fabs that are still puzzling at a deeper analysis, but the waters are murkied on purpose, there are too many conflicting and contradictory narratives not to see something is fishy, however, another point to make is that lennon and the others, too, were played over the years by different impersonators, any legitimate gvt. would have a legitimate concern about them and would follow these guys around, as they would know they are not what they claim to be, they could have been agents assuming a false identity, whose intentions (and handlers) would be clearly suspect. Just sayin’, the interest of the agencies would make sense, from this angle. Ironically, of course.
‘any legitimate gvt’ (!), , would have concern on how well this is playing, (still playing pretty great….)…ironically,
What would Bukowski think ?
Guessing he played his part too..
It was in the context of “for the sake of the argument”, i.e. just following some kind of a logic, I realized the aparent inherent contradiction- in- terms, any normal state agency would be concerned about impostors taking the place of people of serious fame…, and I meant to say that possibly the lennon we knew could have been physically replaced and culturally reconstructed as an image that we currently mostly associate with the name, as in “iconic”, the later john lennon post -1966, energetically and temperamentally and body-type different from the earlier version who was as matter of factly, direct and down to earth, honest and positive as one can be, vs. the suave, sensitive musician and jealous guy, the complicated and tormented Artist with strange tastes in women he turned into, with ideological inclinations and a “working class hero” stance and some degree of political implication, notwithstanding he – whoever he was ultimately – had at least one famously hippie painted Rolls Royce Phantom VI and held many properties, houses all over the place, despite urging melodically everyone else to imagine no possessions, I am sure the coincidence of the year the song appearing in 1971 with the founding year of the WEF – also 1971 and their exciting slogan or mantra “you will have no possessions and you’ll be happy (by 2030)” was not lost on anyone and couod be at least symbolically related and still meaningful.
An impression: Many seem to think the entire world is a Conspiracy. They may be right.
But such an outlook makes one a Prime Candidate for FBI – or one’s national variant – recruitment.
Your entire argument can be reduced to a single word: ambition.
Ambition and money are the mutually sustaining “root of all evil.”
To say “I want to attain this” translates more often than not to “I will do whatever it takes to attain this.” The Faustian Bargain has become a cliche because it’s so obvious, so common, and so rewarding.
The Beatles, the Laural Canyonites and so many more wanted something so badly they may very well have made a bargain with the devil (i.e., the Deep State) to get it.
Does that make them a creation of the Deep State or simply a dupe of it?
Paul McCartney was always Paul McCartney. No one could successfully imitate his bewilderment, and his endless waffling. He was never able to break out from the Shadow of John Lennon (nearly every interviewer asks him a variant of “what was john like ?”). Paul always seemed startled by what came out of his own mouth. Maybe Hero Worship was involved…
(NB. my use of the Past Tense is merely convenient. Nothing More.)
The Paul McCartney of the early era 63-66 is clearly NOT the Paul McCartney of the post 67 era.
Facial recognition technology was used by a couple of Italian researchers apparently determined to end the speculation only to confirm the fact that physically there were many differences between the 2 era Paul’s.
there is credible evidence all the 4fabs were possibly all replaced in late 1966, just look with a fresh pair of eyes at the guys acting (or impersonating) them in the Strawberry Fields Forever video clip, and compare these faces with the earlier incarnations of the boys from Liverpool up to 1966 from the clips in the blu ray disc “1”, examine carefully the guys from the let it be / get back movie with and without peter jackson AI (DEEP FAKE) technology, the original 1970 let it be movie vs the remastered movie presented on Disney 1+ (here’s a clue for you all: AI COMPUTER generated cartoon characters, likely modeled after the white album 1968 album cover photos), examibe the faces on the cover of Sgt. Pepper, look at the “Magical Mystery Tour” a film of abysmal mediocrity, there were just too many changes in their overall vibe, music, stylistic choices, energy, general demeanor, eye color, face and cranium shape, body type, voices and vocals, and even their accent even the way they looked at the camera was different, the excess of moustaches, beards, fake or not, the long hair, the long faces, the excessive facial hair emerging suddenly in late 1966 early 1967, likely used to disguise and cover up differences in facial features and in profile, they all suddenly seemed to have dropped weight just in a few months in late 1966, as the memoirs of Geoff Emerich describe, their sudden change in direction and personal interests, George said jn an interview in Aug 1966 that he liked honky-tonk and rockabilly music, then became so quickly very interested in Eastern spirituality?, a deep devout of Indian philosophy, sitars and Indian music, meditation, etc., most of them experienced really unexplained changes in the formerly stable relationships / partners, Paul grows in height 15-20 cm at least, John drops 20 pounds or more, they all looked all of a sudden more effeminated, less confident, less masculine, and changed their temperament, switched instruments, paul turned to the piano, george to the sitar, john from Cynthia and Julian to yoko and kyoko, then paul left jane and discovered linda, apparently the other 2 marriages that survived for a while took a strange turn a few years later, pattie left george to sleep with his best friend eric and later married him, while george apparently betrayed his long time pal ritchie and slept with his wife maureen, then maureen tried to pass or fly with a motorcycle through a brick wall and was seriously injured, but survived, brian’s death in 1967 is totally suspect etc., it all reads like a bad dream, or a bad movie script, it is quite difficult to accept this hypothesis, but once one breaks the cognitive resistance and fights the long-term conditioning, things appear much more easily in a different light, in the end so many world events were staged, much earlier than we realized, the cultural and mainstream fabric of consensus reality was woven as a matrix for far longer than we could have imagined, the question remains… how far we need to go to find a grain of truth ?
The Rolling Stones, degenerate, dangerous, corruptors of Youth’s Innocence ! Mid-60s they were saved from a prison sentence over a drug bust by Establishment Media coming out on their side, (comparing them to ‘butterflies being broken on The Rack’); then Keef gets ‘community service’ for a heavy drug bust in Canada; they Out themselves via a song about secret agents; Mick gets a medal for Services to the Crown, given to him by Gracious Queen Lizabeth 2: Keef is now a feted TV Celeb…The Establishment protects its Own? Say No More !
It’s defunding the police and leave population w/o protection
The FBI is just another institution that has been created to create the illusion that the state are the good guys. This goes for the judiciary, the constabulary and so on. The FBI has never solved the numerous political murders – The Lindhberg baby, James Forrestal, JFK, RFK, JFK junior, MLK, and many others.9/11. It wasn’t designed to. It’s persecution of commies was in retrospect comic since the cold war was a hoax.
The FBI was the least of our problems during the evil scamdemic. The constabulary ( I have ceased using porcine references since this offends the administrators and maligns innocent domestic animals), the judiciary, the media, the medical establishment, big business and so many others showed themselves to be unprincipled monsters capable of genocide. I really wish there was a hell we could consign them to.
Those who CONTROL the USA government are behind all these developments. America is a psychotic war mongering country whose main industries revolve around oppression and death. God help America.
They have shown their hand; and it is the complete and total destruction of white European cultures, European nations sovereignty and European people. This is just a plain to see fact; although many don’t wish to accept it; it is the truth.

Oh! Captain! Are you anti-Masonic?!?! 😯
The Grand Lodge of British Columbia and Yukon is concerned by your conduct.
“The history of anti-masonry is almost as old as that of Freemasonry itself. Anti-masonic thought can be grouped into two broad catagories: accusations of anti-Christian or satanic objectives, and accusations of political and social manipulation. Anti-masonic thought today generally turns to the many conspiracy theories currently popular in the media. Historically, Freemasonry has ignored such attacks. The following articles contain the facts.
“Public information campaigns that confront myths with facts, or warn people that a given claim is false, necessarily reiterate the information they want to discredit. This strategy is successful as long as people remember what is true and what is false. Unfortunately, memory for these details fades quickly. When the false claims are encountered again on a later occasion, all that is left may be the vague feeling that ‘I heard something like this before.’ This sense of familiarity, in turn, will foster the acceptance of statements as true. Once a statement is accepted as true, people are likely to attribute it to a credible source — which, ironically, may often be the source that attempted to discredit it — lending the statement additional credibility when conveyed to others.”

By Edwin Brock (1927-97):
There are many cumbersome ways to kill a man.
You can make him carry a plank of wood
to the top of a hill and nail him to it.
To do this
properly you require a crowd of people
wearing sandals, a cock that crows, a cloak
to dissect, a sponge, some vinegar and one
man to hammer the nails home.
Or you can take a length of steel,
shaped and chased in a traditional way,
and attempt to pierce the metal cage he wears.
But for this you need white horses,
English trees, men with bows and arrows,
at least two flags, a prince, and a
castle to hold your banquet in.
Dispensing with nobility, you may, if the wind
allows, blow gas at him.
But then you need
a mile of mud sliced through with ditches,
not to mention black boots, bomb craters,
more mud, a plague of rats, a dozen songs
and some round hats made of steel.
In an age of aeroplanes, you may fly
miles above your victim and dispose of him by
pressing one small switch.
All you then
require is an ocean to separate you, two
systems of government, a nation’s scientists,
several factories, a psychopath and
land that no-one needs for several years.
These are, as I began, cumbersome ways
to kill a man.
Simpler, direct, and much more neat
is to see that he is living somewhere in the middle
of the twentieth century, and leave him there.
This is kind of kicking the can down the road. We weren’t free; the previous generation wasn’t ‘free’. This modern freedom is from their description; you were born enslavedn and they blurred this fact by talking of freedom of speech; right to roam nonsense, so you wouldn’t realise the truth.
Around the 17th century; all across the world a fundamental change happened; those who were born with recognised God given rights; a right to farm the land; a right to a house; to make life under your own effort; free-men; God given English right to life without debt, was taken away, The Enclosures Act. From that day forward every Englishman was born into DEBT; a young newly born Englishman was in total debt to a complete stranger for life; a mortgage; or another word for it S-L-A-V E

.. English right to life..
That the propaganda problem, right there. Humans have rights. Colonial sub-humans have no rights. One day, the propaganda comes home to bite.
Yes; England was colonised several centuries ago; we are all colonies now.
“For too long now, the American people have allowed their personal prejudices and politics to cloud their judgment and render them incapable of seeing that the treatment being doled out by the government’s lethal enforcers has remained consistent, no matter the threat.”
But do “the American people” care?
Both Steven McIntyre and Hans Mahncke have put the FBI under their microscopes.
On the other side, the FBI are amateurs compared to Mainland Chinese MSS intimidation of political freedom. The problem is, that they are jealous of that total control – as a society like that will 100% sure fail.
Interesting comment. Notice the change of direction. We’re back in the ‘what-about’ tactical shift game namely: US ‘goodish’ – but China infinitely worse. That’s a good way to get out of the real point at issue. Namely, in the geopolitical situation where the United States are lining their armada in the Taiwan Straits in order to attack China. Taking sides perhaps? So who’s the aggressor in this situation? The question answers itself.
Within 5 minutes of covid there where brand spanking new videos out banded by the fake awake conservative media telling you that out of china was the releasing the virus. *(jealous of our freedoms).
In today terms – Throw in the moslem terrorists blowing up a church (there expected within the next month) just before midterms as that needs a staged numerology astrology attack or a boat photo of a rubber dingy sea fairing immigrants that gets Antonym and his types excited.
Maybe even a Christian preacher being arrested.
We are very lucky as Politics does work not perfect. We are very lucky (feel it believe it) to have our political system. Because……
The communist east is infinitely worse. sigh
And… looking at how both China and Russia recognize the existence of Kovid and the need to vaccinate against it, you don’t think that the story spread by the false awakened conservatives “china was the releasing the virus” is the other part of the mass media’s claim that China and Russia are bad to reinforce in the “conservative” part of the population the myth of the non-alignment of forces in the globalist NWO arrangements?
China and Russia are brazenly, shamelessly and noisily maligned by globalists -> So, no matter what China and Russia do, they are good, or at least real enemies of the globalists?
plino, China & Russia whose goals are identical to the globalists malign the West, but this doesn’t mean the West are anti-globalist.
Although China & Russia are further along the road to enslavement of their citizens it does appear that any disagreement among the 3 is only regarding the division of the spoils.
In a way China has, since last 7-80 years, been the playground of global oligarchy-technocracy to see how a total ruthless authoritarian regime operates.
The oligarchs-technocrats’ manipulation is behind the manner in which the Chinese ruling regimes operate.
They can’t do that fully in US, UK or other countries, although they are desperate for that to happen. They weild a big control over those governments but are, I supsect, afraid of what the people’s reaction will be to tactics that Chinese rulers apply.
My heart out goes to the Chinese citizenry who haven’t had the opportunities to understand and seek the freedoms they so much deserve to have.
You must of been a sleep the last few years.
The system is evil and run by evil people, we know that. I want to see, if the system is gone, what the people themselves will actually do. Will the problems stop and will there be peace and love?
Only satan is evil; the people who choose to work for him, take on his persona; the father of lies. Ridiculous fools.
The Sly has got so deep under the skin of good people. So deep…
They’ve recently doubled the number of IRS agents.
Most people really don’t much care what happens to others, with a few exceptions for family and friends.
That – and that alone – is how and why criminal organizations of every stripe get away with what they do. No Constitution can save people from themselves: i.e., can make them start caring about others.
“Not my problem” will be humanity’s epitaph.
Not true. Look at the way people who’ve had adverse reactions to the jab have come together to support each other since they’ve been ignored by the healthcare and media industries: https://www.oraclefilms.com/safeandeffective
Finally got around to watching this…. Thanks for posting the link. Attitudes and conflicts have not changed between vaxxers and anti vaxxers. Efforts to vindicate the medical community are moving forward. Most doctors are sticking with the narrative of lies to protect themselves rather than their patients. Very disappointing. Never trusted doctors much before Covid. I have been put on notice that my doctor may drop me as a patient if I don’t go in for my annual physical. It was hard to find a doctor that is “accepting new patients” after my last one retired. I view this as medical coercion. I can only imagine what jabs they want to push on me. My biggest fear is how I might react when they try and coerce me into getting jabbed and how the medical staff will respond when I refuse. Will that potential conflict be an excuse to “red flag” me as mentally unstable. I think so. They cannot be trusted until they come clean and admit their mistakes. I am thinking something like an embroidered red acronym could be sewn on their white lab coat; “ICM” for I came clean……….
The painful truth.
well said, and thank-you for this link – didn’t know about this film
well said, and thanks for the link to the film – I didn’t know about it so much appreciated
I see “not mutually exclusive” in this picture.
I feel Howard is generally correct, but you are right too.
Some don’t care much, it’s true. But ” Most ” is false I would hold though the degree of such care can be debated. Our common plight in this mortal life limits the concern we have for our fellow man but most people are kind and that has to rate as caring.
The popularity here of the ” Most people really don’t much care what happens to others ” claim continues to portray this group as heavily pessimistic and my concern is that trait’s proximity to nihilism.
I would suggest ” Aversion to the Truth ” instead of ” Not my problem ” yet not for an epitaph; humanity will not die.
This is so tip o’ the iceberg. From the labor movement driven by anarchists in the mid 1800’s to today. Any movement of commoners toward self-governing our future, with safeguards and protections from exploitation by elites with authority-to-decide, is met with with immediate, attempted total annihilation. It will never stop until we remove their ability to have authority-to-decide. Our authority or none at all.
How is a this free of hierarchy society organized? How do you imagine that? Do you know history? Have you seen a tribe? Do you see animals in nature? Where is this without hierarchy? Is there a natural hierarchy between people, outside of power hierarchies, in normal human relationships? How do you go against that? Equalization? Or through an agreement to observe an anarchist relationship? Do you know what mental + moral level these people have to be on for there to be a chance for this to work? What, they just have to abide by the terms of the organization and everything will be fine?
And besides, the globalists, who are everywhere and want to gain direct power over everything, over Man and nature, through high technology, will they let them organize themselves? Do you know the only condition on which they would leave them? Only on condition that there exists what anarchists reject as the basis of hierarchical power. Only if this exists, and it decides that anarchists should have the opportunity to organize, will they have the opportunity given to them by the evil globalists.
Do you understand this by really looking at where things are going? If what the “enlightened” (in the sense of the historical “Enlightenment”) anarchists childishly reject, does not exist, they (and all of us) are cannon fodder, broilers on the global farm.
We’ve heard a lot of stories about “per kilogram.” Let us see one realized in action (and be durable taking into account all current conditions and circumstances, as well as their development).
//I think very strongly that anarchist realization can only be after a collapse and a revolution, just like the previous revolution and the communist nightmare. And again the East is involved, and again the source of the restart is mainly centered in the West (in this general machinations). I fully accept that anarchism and parallel societies in general not simply can be twisted and shaped at the will of those from whom we wish to free ourselves, but are simply long-instilled ideas from the think tanks of the same authorities. Old ideas polished by the new age for implementation in the next of today’s days.
Anarchists are very fond of the counterargument “you talk empty talk” or “unrelated”, while they themselves talk clever, only that. The anarchist empire of words.
(Although this is all very idealistic, because, as we know very well, the ideas of modern anarchy, in which the people alone rule and work and build for themselves, are built and spread as part of the plan to destroy the monarchies (which are dictatorships). And who fought for a long time and actively in more recent times with the monarchies? We know which ones.)
Shalom, brother Sandy 🕎
The large bee in a bee hive that lays eggs being called a ‘queen’ is an anthropomorphism. The collective intelligence of the collection of insects we call a bee hive does not reside in the ‘queen’. The ‘queen’ is to the hive what my gonads are to the collection of cells that make me up. The ‘queen’ is just a ‘worker bee’ (another anthropomorphism) that specialised in laying eggs.
Another example: There is not a ‘presidential’ brain cells that make up my brain that directs its possibilities: that would so limit the potential of the collective.
A worldwide movement has started just a year ago that does just that in my opinion. It is called Solaris. solaris-ontario.org is a comprehensive website in English. I invite you to look into it.
I agree to all your points except that of calling a bee colony’s behaviour anthropomorphic. Bees appear to be intelligent creatures capable of making both individual and collective decisions and can be extremely intuitive and creative in their execution. Sure there is a routine in the daily life of a colony and sure the hive has been endlessly displayed as a model of subservience but I can’t agree, as a beekeeper, that bees are no more than mindless automates. The whole thing about swarming, do we?/don’t we?, is a wholely collective decision taken after consideration of a multitude of varying factors, the lot dependant on the successful carrying out of a string of speculative preparations that can go back several weeks. In any case, I can think of worst things in life than being a bee, not so sure about being a gonad…!
It’s not the bee colony’s behaviour that is an anthropomorphism. It’s referring to the large bee that lays eggs as being a ‘queen’. I did not intend to suggest that bees “are no more mindless automates.” My point was an attempt to suggest that a collective of humans without hierarchy is possible. Because of language, a colony of bees is a lot less hierarchical than we imagine. My comment follows Plino’s “Do you see animals in nature? Where is this without hierarchy?” which suggest, I think, that he sees collective organisations in nature as strictly hierarchical.
OK, I see what you mean. I agree that queen’s do not live a life of luxury, they pull their weight and do their share of the work just like all the worker bees for the good of the whole. However the ‘queen’ bee does perform a highly specific role within the ‘colony’ or collective which she is held to else face being eliminated. A ‘worker’ bee’s duties prioritise the well being of the ‘queen’, her needs are constantly attended too… In short, a hive is not run without order, I think there’s a lot of horizontal hierarchy there amongst the majority of older bees relieved from attending to the big egg-layer bee. For various reasons, romantic, political
,the hive has been alluded to a monarchy, but whilst I’d skip the ‘queen’ analogy I still think that a hierarchy of some sorts exists therein. Maybe priority is a better word, bees accept without coercion to work together to ensure the healthy conditions needed to sustain the colony for as long as possible, their priority being to provide all that the ‘queen’ requires to lay the foundations of the colony. I also think that beyond the hive, elsewhere nature is organised along similar lines, big things and little things, give and take, based on an acceptance of our part and place within the natural order of things.
I see an important difference:
A bee, as an individual or as part of a hive, cannot do anything except what bees have done since they first existed.
We, on the other hand, could, frankly, act like bees if we so chose.
I think “queen” is, indeed, an anthropomorphic designation – perhaps connected with Liz the First, and all the palaver that accompanied her “virgin queen” reign…?
Is this the same “solaris” created and overseen by Catherine Austin Fitts et al? If so, I can’t help being a bit skeptical. An anarchist who knows so very well how to make money, and who continues to ply that skill is, truthfully, not my idea of the ideal anarchist.
Not related to Catherine Austin Fitts at all. “SOLARI INVESTMENT ADVISORY SERVICES, LLC” is the name of her organisation.
A non-hierarchic society needs no “organization.” The concept of “organization” presupposes hierarchy. Anarchy makes “organization” unnecessary and irrelevant.
However, as much as I believe anarchy is humanity’s only way of avoiding self-destruction, I have to agree with you that it’s largely non-workable – at least on a grand enough scale to be of any consequence.
History, as it’s portrayed, shows very clearly that one of the driving motivations of human beings is “What’s In It For Me?” As long as that motivation exists, especially if it prevails, there’s no possibility of a sustainable non-hierarchic society.
Therefore, no possibility of avoiding eventual human extinction.
Non-anarchic organisations are possible.
I recommend to you David Graeber’s book, The Dawn Of Everything, if you haven’t read it already? Pre-history provides many models for living that serve as alternatives to our current top-heavy system.
Interesting. I’ve made note of it. Thank you. Will certainly read if I have a chance.
Not so fast with your misleading interpretation of The Dawn …
“The Dawn of Everything” is a biased disingenuous account of human history (http://www.persuasion.community/p/a-flawed-history-of-humanity ) that spreads fake hope (the authors of “The Dawn” claim human history has not “progressed” in stages, or linearly, and must not end in inequality and hierarchy as with our current system… so there’s hope for us now that it could get different/better again). As a result of this fake hope porn it has been widely praised. It conveniently serves the profoundly sick industrialized world of fakes and criminals. The book’s dishonest fake grandiose title shows already that this work is a FOR-PROFIT, instead a FOR-TRUTH, endeavour geared at the (ignorant gullible) masses.
Fact is human history since the dawn of agriculture has “progressed” in a linear stage (the “stuck” problem, see below), although not before that (http://www.focaalblog.com/2021/12/22/chris-knight-wrong-about-almost-everything ). This “progress” has been fundamentally destructive and is driven and dominated by “The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room” (http://www.rolf-hefti.com/covid-19-coronavirus.html ) which the fake hope-giving authors of “The Dawn” entirely ignore naturally (no one can write a legitimate human history without understanding and acknowledging the nature of humans). And these two married pink elephants are the reason why we’ve been “stuck” in a destructive hierarchy and unequal class system , and will be far into the foreseeable future (the “stuck” question — “the real question should be ‘how did we get stuck?’ How did we end up in one single mode?” — [cited from their book] is the major question in “The Dawn” its authors never answer, predictably).
A good example that one of the authors, Graeber, has no real idea what world we’ve been living in and about the nature of humans is his last brief article on Covid where his ignorance shines bright already at the title of his article, “After the Pandemic, We Can’t Go Back to Sleep.” Apparently he doesn’t know that most people WANT to be asleep, and that they’ve been wanting that for thousands of years (and that’s not the only ignorant notion in the title) — see last cited source above. Yet he (and his partner) is the sort of person who thinks he can teach you something authentically truthful about human history and whom you should be trusting along those terms. Ridiculous!
“The Dawn” is just another fantasy, or ideology, cloaked in a hue of cherry-picked “science,” served lucratively to the gullible ignorant underclasses who crave myths and fairy tales.
“The evil, fake book of anthropology, “The Dawn of Everything,” … just so happened to be the most marketed anthropology book ever. Hmmmmm.” — Unknown
Thank you. Just by chance I came back here and noticed your comment. I appreciate it.
Because something has to keep the organization organized…?
The answer is always the same; self sufficiency. Only then will you have the opportunity to be free of tyranny.
The ugly truth is that Democracy is a Hoax- the cabal always ruled us from the shadows. (The US was founded by Freemasons.) The FBI only fought Organized Crime so the cabal could get rid of the competition!
Finally, was John Lennon really assasinated? Or was he a Deep State (Tavistock) agent?
Is “Miles Mathis” really an independent writer on the internet, or is “he” a deep state creation designed to spread falsehoods amongst none believers? Don’t take anything on faith.
“Bob” is clearly derived from Be’elze-Bab family – Phoenicians, related to the Queen via the Stuarts
“Hod” derived from the Hodl family of Coventry, originators of the Crypto psyop, descendents of crypto-zionists, related to the Bushes and the Stanleys, aristocrats
Thus you are Sea People and part of the elite and your comments are de-facto discredited
4 and 9 in your upvotes and downvotes. By my calculation that boils down to both 666 and 93, which also means 666. You masonic types love a hidden symbol don’t you?
John Lennon a Deep State agent? This really is getting silly.
False idol and influencer. Drugs, promiscuity under the banner of new age fluff.
Democracy and revolution sprang up independently in many places, back into historical times. The wealthy always managed to subvert it.
Pity those pricks, for they’ll never know Love or gratitude.
They are doomed to misery.
“At that point, when you find yourself in the government’s crosshairs, it will not matter whether your skin is black or yellow or brown or white; it will not matter whether you’re an immigrant or a citizen; it will not matter whether you’re rich or poor; it will not matter whether you’re Republican or Democrat; and it certainly won’t matter who you voted for in the last presidential election.”
This is a mere smidgen of the wholesale abuses and crimes against American citizens, immigrants, dissidents, nonconformists, activists and reformers that have been/are being conducted by the FBI, CIA and other US government agencies. I urge readers to look through and read the Church Committee Reports to glean how pervasive and deeply entrenched this type of repression has been in American history. https://www.aarclibrary.org/publib/contents/church/contents_church_reports.htm, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JBQhASXivg.
This will put to rest the myths and lies about the American system and the notion of freedom and equal justice under the law. It was only a matter of time before what the elites who control the US government did to the Native American American Indian Movement, the Civil Rights and Black Power, Peace, organized and Farm Labor movements would spill over onto the rest of the nation and impact ordinary citizens. What goes around comes around.
How likely is it that Cointelpro, Mockingbird and MKUltra are no longer part of active policies?
Not very likely, and rebranding is always on the menu.
