MATRIX OF CONTROL: A Short Tale About Society We Live in.  
A Construct
What is the society we are living in like? We think, we know our neighborhood, friends, if we really have any, and definitely we know or at least we think we know something about our close relatives as well as extended family mostly through personal experiences of our lives but also through narratives that are proliferated among our family members about society at large and ourselves within this society.
What about society at large? Do we really directly know anything about our society beyond our professional or commercial relationships with strangers, mitigated by money or advantage? Do we realize or understand our own role in society beyond narrow family ties and responsibilities?
Are there true human experiences and not fat books of lies, aphorisms, innuendos, misconceptions and omissions supposedly about politics and society, the only source on which we base our entire social worldview?
Is it not, society we live in really our society, meaning that we, ordinary people, create it and control it or at least conscientiously support it in any meaningful ways?
There are no easy answers to above questions. But we do not worry much, since we know we don’t have to know those answers to live our everyday lives, which we believe to have special meaning or wish to have special meaning, purpose for us alone and we vaguely sense, if not conscientiously choose, what such goals are or should be hoping that they would be attainable.
Sadly, all of it, a nice tale about humanity and life struggle, is just an illusion we ourselves help to feed into our minds. The necessary illusion of our own control over our own lives within our own community or even in our own society at large, we are truly oblivious to.
So what is the real society we live in? Is our place and role in the society solely mitigated by our inherited social position, skills, talents, our hard work, dedication and determination and lots of good luck or random chance? Or are we imprisoned behind invisible bars of our knowledge, beliefs, choices, traditions or intellectual horizons, all arbitrary factors instilled in us from within our society making us insensible to great indiscernible walls of desirable comfort and stability of our mind?
Unfortunately, nobody can be told what the society really is and unlike the famous Matrix, nobody can see it with his or her own eyes either, since we cannot simply unplug. What we really have are bits and pieces of societal structure in itself, a substrate separated from myths and obfuscation, examined in “extention” for what it actually is and not what it does.
There is ample documentation for the latter while scarcely anything about the former.
All we know for sure is that society we live in is man-made.
Fortunately, there were men and women in the past such as Michael Foucault and others who understood fundamentals of society with its holographic structures of deceit and suggestive hedonistic innuendos disguised as principles and values as well as its perfect dynamism of control. And they woke up and freed few people from beautiful delusion of radical individualism, as well as from profound believe in possibility of self-effacement deep within the society.
And from them we know what we know.
It is mostly accepted fact that “advanced”, so-called agrarian and/or civil society is organized into political system imposed by minority of ruling elite.
Below there is presented brief review of a model of structure of society under dynamic control of political system that is thought to resemble the society we live in. While plausible, that this model was developed under restraints of deficient or often insufficient data obtained from complex dynamic system.
The issue of emergence of the elite itself is more an issue related to evolution of our human species and individual advancement processes as well as its conditionality regarding social development, generally similar across all higher order species and hence will not be discussed here where focus is being placed on already developed society.

Structure of Society vs. Moral Attitudes.
Every society consist of a continuously emerging elite, a group of often interbred families or clans that persuaded themselves that it is their prerogative to control the rest of society, seen as animalistic masses, immoral abominations of humanity. They see themselves, whether they admit it or not, as reluctant saviors of the humanity, against all odds. Their self-proclaimed objective and perceived necessity is to become absolute moral arbiters, life and death decision makers. They believe that they are Hegelian type “ubermensch”, supermen, meant as the only true humans, building blocks and foundations of perfect social order and power structure able to support it. Hence, to hold power is their solemn duty, a burden they must carry for higher good of society at large.
They consider themselves not as much better humans as they just consider the rest of humanity as certain earthly creatures, items of natural world, a resource to be harvested or exploited in any way they deem necessary.
Such attitude permeates all decision-making processes within ruling elite, all understood not as means of survival and dominance but as a self-sacrifice for higher end, for higher purposes than their individual well-being, one of paranoid delusions deviously nurtured among themselves.
In their obviously psychopathic or even psychotic state of mind it is all about binary moral order, good and evil, absolute truths and absolute values incomprehensible concepts to those who don’t belong, those unable to achieve higher state of consciousness beyond any notion of forethought or petty human concerns. Seen as a matter of objective reality, their law is their will and their morality is their immediate need or benefit, all other considerations rescinded. They regard themselves beyond any earthly moral insecurities or doubts as an expression of ultimate justice and absolute truth.
What is astounding that all those assertions are not developed and accepted by ruling elite as much as dogmas of their rule but rather as rational conclusion based on the results of numerous experiments and detailed observations of the society at large and its behavior. The ruling elite rationally concludes that their rule is the only thing that works for all society.
The idea of ruling elite as conspiracy in common meaning of the word it is not, since they have no specific plan of action or even specific ultimate objective to be achieved, short of holding onto power and expand limits of control by whatever means available. What they use are methods and techniques of manipulating of population stratified into casts or classes via propaganda of abstract concepts of economic development, political process, social policies, law, religion, science, vertical mobility, sports, nationalism, racism etc., and in cases when it fails they use raw brutality as ultimate expression of “innate” morality of their power.
So who are they? What are their names? Here is the problem. Even in historical perspective most the names of kings or emperors that supposedly ruled the world for thousands of years, as many results of scientific research indicate, have been likely made up names for certain groups or elites that actually ruled the ancient states, arrangement sometimes chosen for security of individual who was in charge but mostly it was to cover up existence of committee of rulers, a ruling class. Such assertion is not controversial since it is very well accepted fact that for example, mysterious priestly class even when technically not in power, was influential power player in economy and politics for millennia and still is today.
However, even in XIX century the new emerging power elites in US and elsewhere where so convinced about their benign character that allowed some kind of interaction with society at large through promoting those so-called towering figures of industrial revolution such as Fords, Rothschilds, Carnegies, Rockefellers etc., multiple names for the same symbol of ruling class. But this changed drastically at the end of XIX century when political movements of masses, of what they believed to be benevolent human refuse, a fertilizer of their power, suddenly threatened the very foundation of their rule, ironically it was a side effect of their own nation-state ploy devised after French revolution shaken ruling elites to the core.
Following advice of S. Freud who in early 20th century came to US not really to lecture about his dream theory at US Universities, though he was invited numerous times to do so during his over one year stay and finally in 1909 gave so-called “Clark” series of lectures on Psychoanalysis, but to warn US and world elites to change their ways, step back from spotlight and return to their ancient obfuscated ways of ruling the world or else prepare to be overthrown by massive political movements of working people all over the word.
It was not easy but after a year of often secret (handsomely paid) meetings with representatives of ruling elites in the US they heed the call. It was not as much because they were scared or felt particularly threaten with Armageddon but more because Freud presented specific program to mitigate such a risk cheaply and effectively using substantially improved methods of social control and manipulation he developed during his psychoanalytic practice in Vienna.
In just few years so-called corporate reforms promoting fantasy of dissolution of strict and unified corporate control structure run by an individual, fantasy of dissolution of singular responsibilities and corporate accountability of an individual, have been introduced to obfuscate calcified corporate structure which stayed the same, unaltered.

The so-called anti-monopoly laws (Clayton Antitrust Act) passed late 1914 to break up huge corporations, trusts and cartels were instigated and used as a part of Freud’s plan to obfuscate ruling elite role or even their existence and shield them from coming political tsunami. The creation of CIR in 1912 to diffuse labor tensions, FTC and FED in 1913 and privatization of central banks all over the world were steps into dissolution of the responsible identity.
The core of Freud program that drew attention of ruling elite was discovery, in comparison to society at large, of much higher overall morality of the poor and working class people, than previously assumed, stemming mostly from development of work ethos and camaraderie in suffering.
In simplified form it was about very high threshold of proof of causal relation between action of an individual and effect on poor or working people before their political and moral attitude changed. In other words new individual in society if placed in position of authority immediately gains substantial trust of people, gains instant credit of his/her honesty and good will given to anyone as recognition of his/her human dignity. Freud called it virgin moral naiveté of working people, fundamental believe of goodness of another individual human being, a concept alien to ruling elite who subscribe solely to stringent class morality.
And hence, we saw proliferation of completely fake and useless boards of directors, invention of CEOs, COOs, etc., and other meaningless acronyms that obfuscate the obvious. Also, seems unlimited, often not needed, entirely fake multi-level of corporate management structures proliferated among corporations, followed by an avalanche of company splits or mergers and introduction of ridiculously obfuscated capital structures of multi-leveled holding companies into corporate capital investment world, that all but dissolved into fog concept of ownership even for shareholders of publicly traded companies, with no influence over company no matter how much shares they have.
A new era dawned on the World. From Ford, proud sole proprietor of whole billion dollar Ford company who himself was making all decisions down to production line to featureless corporate bureaucrat, a temporary puppet face of a big boss, a grunt that can be blamed for all bad decisions, and can be swiftly punished for them so those workers and their families who suffered greatly can be confused about who was actually is responsible for their misery, and they will not blame anyone without direct proof. It was the proof that so-called corporate and governmental reforms aimed to obfuscate and what consequently accomplished as an element of wider political strategy to defeat and destroy working people movements all over the word.
Since then ruling elites retreated back to their historical cloud of obfuscation and speculation, not to be seen or spoke about directing masses through social mechanism of control supported by their propaganda puppets, courtiers of the system tasked with maintaining ruling elite’s strict control over population, and running matrix-like illusion of civil society, not too horrible and not too comfortable.

A society run by ruling elites consist of courtiers’ class, a privileged servants forming core of puppet politics, political administration and institutions, system security agencies, military, money banking, trade and economic management, secular and religious propaganda of celebrity. These courtiers are often descendants of former courtiers with some small contribution from those from lower classes who are genetically related, most “talented”, “needed”, or are admitted on basis of caprice or curiosity or those who in rare cases, cannot be temporarily eliminated or killed.
To be included in the class one has to genuinely exhibit certain peculiar sense of morality. Courtier morality is based on absolute loyalty and submission to ruling elite, submission to their goals and methods and utmost loyalty to implement them without prejudice, without doubt, hesitation or judgment, to act without any kind of individual morality, individual moral judgment or doubt since such concepts do not exist in courtier class. Any degree of deviation from this brings to those who dare swift retaliation i.e. immediate death or rejection, repudiation and total alienation from the class, loss of relative privilege and most of all condemnation from their kin. However, this is relatively rare since self-censoring, self-limiting mechanisms, invisible prison of ideas, within the class work extremely well.
Courtiers are themselves victims of ruling elite, considered as subhuman in need for guidance, and in the same time perpetrators of atrocities among themselves as well as among the lower classes. They are expected to be mindless executioners of moral/social order established by “chosen people” of ruling elite otherwise they failed in their duty and are discarded as refuse. That’s why, to mitigate somewhat, the enormous pressure; courtiers are frantic, gluttonous consumers of the very propaganda they produce by orders of ruling elite.
They are metaphorically liquefying their own brains to feed their young as well as to feed the poisonous potion of, backed by ostentatious brutality, propaganda worldview into brains of lower classes who ruling class consider spawn of the Earth or just all-encompassing natural resources which are to be exploited to exhaustion or collapse. Since, in contrast to courtier class, this type of indoctrination is mostly unsuccessful as a tool of controlling bottom of society, it does not constitute major focus of ruling elite in dealing with the lower classes.
The massive propaganda that is being deployed toward courtier class however, has main objective, not as much to suppress “undesirable” ideas about reality they are living in, but rather providing avenue of “help” and escape of tremendous stress imposed by brutal regime they are tasked to uphold. The other avenues are provided as well through addictions and sin industry always allowed and nurtured by ruling elites for this very reason. Courtier class is required to be moral and to believe that they are moral, whatever “moral” means at given moment, all for their own psychological relief of tension, preventing any disruption of their duty to suppress the others.

In general, in contrast to courtiers’ class that fulfills central function in the social system, attitude of ruling elite to lower classes is somewhat ambivalent. The lower classes are treated as social refuse so hopeless that there is nothing really that can be done about them though they are trying hard to enlighten them using their absolute morality of power.
Since its eradication would have been costly and not overall beneficial to the system control scheme, modern society also consist of class of serfs or slaves, those abandoned courtiers or those who quit the system and just slowly dying on its margins, all those considered by elite as low life devoid of human dignity, those who need to be organized and exposed to external rule of law and revealed morality for their own good since they do not posses capacity of moral life.
Opposite to propaganda revelations spewed over lower classes, entire political system that permeates society is busy not with healing social ills or bring prosperity to population as we know well but rather is busy running a late Roman style political money theater a cheap burlesque with no consequence beyond curtain call although real blood is flowing on the stage.
Members of serf/slave class are unaware of anyone individual from ruling class short of courtier spokespeople, borrowed faces of the ruling elite and mistakenly take on their grievances to representatives of courtiers’ class, themselves just up notch on all-encompassing autocratic structure of society, with absolutely no real power of their own.
In contrast to what courtiers of the system telling lower classes, the elites are tasked with no plans or vision for humanity and often employ brutal deception of non-existing political choices or programs stealing future from countless gullible generations of non-people. All such practices are implemented as means of control and not means to any particular end.
Any so-called political system that lower classes are referencing as such; totalitarian, oligarchic, democratic, meritocratic, aristocratic, plutocratic or whatever other meaningless names are used, all of them are fulfilling role of fashionable headlines of endless sequels of one single play, a power play aimed to assert control, that’s all.

Mechanism of Control.
While the nature of stratification of ruling class itself is a subject of speculations and not much of knowledge, there is strict stratification imposed on other classes, namely courtiers and lower classes intertwined within all permeating grid structure of social power.
So how is society controlled? How elites are executing their command and impose their control over minute aspects of individual lives within population while leaving impression of uncertainty of future outcomes and illusion of chance for a social change.
We all already know the answer: It is rampant propaganda of individualism, myth of self-determination, illusion of self-definition and individual will, a tale of uniqueness of special attributes which are supposed to be of utmost importance in human interactions while they are truly not. Ruling elites know that atomization of society is an initial, necessary step toward assertion of efficient system of control.
Propaganda erases all we have in common, all what our humanity really means, namely that we are one, human beings who share all in unity and no differences are of any important consequence to our humanity. Propaganda reigns supreme bringing us social alienation and addiction to particular psychological comfort, making a glimpse into true reality a painful experience we would rather avoid or forget.
So while we’re convinced, and would even swear that we are making our own choices of career or lifestyle, personality, character or life philosophy, that we are in control of our life at least to some degree we are surreptitiously preprogrammed and ordered to take our preplanned, respective position within our stratified and calcified society with no room for true, meaningful advancement in existing hierarchy of power that has been eradicated from our consciousness and replaced with fantasy of people’s rule or hallucinations of freedom.
How such a thing is even possible? Would millions of people need to be involved in such deceit on massive scale? Would such conspiracy not be leaked, disclosed or otherwise revealed to public at large?
It seems ironic but millions of people in courtier and lower classes know something about it but do not know of it. This so-called conspiracy if there was one, is not hidden at all, it is everywhere in plain view for everyone who cares to open his or her wide shut eyes to see. The true conspiracy is to make us not want to open our eyes, not want to know, to dismiss undesirable truths as unimportant or irrelevant to our “real” lives, to stay blind to the world around us as an expression of our freedom of choice and self-control.
But why? Perhaps, it is because we all are part of it, every day of our lives whether we are aware of it or not.
It is extremely hard to perform an act self-reflection and self-examination finding out and admitting that we, you and me, could be parts of this charade called “real” world, agents that contribute to current state of affairs in one capacity or another or in one degree or another by adopting imposed on us, by the political system, truly alien goals and morals as our own family and human values. It would be shocking to discover that we are imprisoned by our own mind.
It would have been excruciating to realize that most every choice we ever made was no truly ours, that every opinion we ever held was not truly ours, that every moral judgment we made was not truly our own moral judgment but an illusion of it, all for the sake of forced upon us, social and political system permeating our lives. But unfortunately that may as well be the truth.
I am far from blaming my own social class i.e. lower class of serfs for contribution to our common misery which I am guilty of as well, even if those are the facts, but most of all because ruling elite wants us to blame one another, wants us to stir conflicts, wants us to divide ourselves and fight to our deaths in this senseless cockfight for sole benefit and entertainment of ruling class gamblers and to detriment of our human dignity.
The political system run by ruling elite puts us into predesignated nodes of rigid social structure of power within our stratified class. In this node our position is determined by our social power relative to above and below nodes of hierarchy of control.
There is simple basic mechanism that we all operate under and is based on de facto believe or assumption that those positioned in nodes above us are infallible and those below are controllable, in need of supervision since they lack capacity to make correct technical or moral judgment by themselves.
The utility of such arrangement is extremely high since it surreptitiously applies our psychological transposition capability to be utilized by the system of control regardless of level of our awareness of such conditionality. In other words whether or not we know that we are part of social grid of rigid dependencies or believe that we are free is irrelevant in regard to system efficiency.
The social grid structure sets up certain autocratic state of our mind where we deeply believe or accept so-called “rational” empirical or spiritual proof of superiority of one human being over another human being and as such the very precept of such discrimination needs no longer be questioned or validated, and hence becomes interwoven onto our moral fabric.
Such a state of mind eliminates any doubt about those superior to us as well as removes any doubts about our own superiority, morality or righteousness in our judgments about those below us in the social structure. As we have been appropriately conditioned, we consciously or subconsciously believe or accept that we belong where we are in social strata even if we vehemently deny it.
Even if we seemingly are encouraged by superiors to dream big via means of propaganda of unlimited opportunities and career advancement, often even when we are young but definitely in our in later years we value perceived stability of what we are at and we act accordingly and that’s the key.
These are controversial issues and many readers may sharply disagree with the above assertions, claiming that, he/she base their relationships with subordinates on sense of partnership and negotiating outcomes and definitely does not treat his/her superiors as infallible.
It is important to note that when we are talking about state of mind we are not talking about opinions, principles or attitudes but ultimate actions that are being taken. Hence while we may not be impressed with decisions or intellectual prowess of our boss we’re following his directions or at least are concerned with providing results as expected from us. In a sense, if we do not accept directly superiority of our boss we definitely accept superiority of our job over our judgments about our boss, a typical psychological transposition in play.
It takes certain state of mind to submit to control through specific, concrete actions.
Also as much as we may buildup more like two-way interactive relationship with our subordinates, the very act of control over them is the fact of, for example, scheduling of meeting itself as well as the fact that result of the interaction is likely a list of approved by the boss, instructions to be acted upon by subordinates, not the other way around.
The social control is all about inducing certain acts of subordination. The attitudes are irrelevant. The nature of control does not always require high-efficiency of perceived outcomes.
However, when our judgments or assertions about our bosses or company or church or family, or any other organization deviate from those of superiority or infallibility while we are forced to act upon them as they were, very stressful and painful cognitive dissonance is likely to develop, having capability to strongly disrupt our lives, likely leading to addiction and/or readjustment of our attitudes and in a way surrender and submission to questionable authority in order to return to mental stability, or inspires us to commit ultimate act of mental disenfranchisement or social alienation from company or community or a group or family, namely quitting the job, quitting the Church, quitting the family, quitting the life.
Ability to harness and direct, enormous power of alienation of human being from society constitutes fundamental element of control, constantly utilized by elites to maintain and extend their rule over us.
This same mechanism applies to cases of subordination to our own authority when cognitive dissonance pushes us into state of mind toward acceptance of our ultimate authority in relation to our subordinates as a way of avoiding internal psychological conflicts and uncertainties. Sooner or later we resign ourselves and submit to so-called social order and the structure of control that supports it or otherwise we drift to the margins of society.
As it is in any pyramid scheme most of us on the bottom of social power structure do not have any subordinate layer where we could impose our superiority of judgments upon but unfortunately many try to impose their will on fellow serfs, as they are strongly encouraged by power elite, as a way to alleviate their enormous stress of being autocratically subdued and suppressed every day of their lives and as a result they aid the control system itself.
Such simple social power structure and mechanism of hierarchical morality enables, through its chain reaction, a flow of top commands to control the bottom of society efficiently and in individual form and scope tailored to specific addressee of the commands.
It is really not difficult to understand reality of such a structure since it is a structure similar to that of military organizations with one important difference.
Aside from propaganda inspired narratives, command and control in military institutions is accomplished via direct intelligible order system, that while may not be seen as rational in itself, actions required to follow that order are clear with no room or need for individual interpretation.
However in social power structures at large command and control is accomplished differently, via indirect, vague, imprecise, unclear objectives or milestones, leaving the true meaning of the order to wild range of interpretations specific to individual node identity, function, type, level and position. In other words in social power structure the orders are executed always in specific context often having different meaning to different people in different times and different circumstances which are never clarified.
Surprisingly, such a seemingly chaotic structure with false impression of imprecise variable rules was proven to be very efficient not as much to accomplish something but rather to maintain effective control over people. For ruling elites it is not the results or what was actually done that matter most, since they have no real plans or goals for society, but the inducement of certain actions or behaviors defining how and why its was accomplished or not, an interpretation of vague order that’s what is being judged. This is the essence of control that could not be defeated from within.
What is similar however between military organizations and society at large are harsh consequences of failure to act on the order as it is expected by those superiors, infallible human beings from the social power node above. It is rarely about inadequate results, but mostly about character of individual actions.
While the command and control could be achieved easier in the system security institutions such as military or police, it is not much more difficult to accomplish it within sociopolitical systems of power with its undefined rules and variable allegiances.
However, it always results in degree of corruption of an individual, a deep distrust to superiors and uneasiness or suspicion of subordinates below, sowing devastating seeds of alienation despite veneer of comradery especially promoted among management/courtier class or even within family where grid of social power is ever-present and ever powerful.
That’s what so-called social mobility is all about, and what purpose it serves in the sociopolitical systems namely creation of personal uncertainty, insecurity, uneasiness on every level of society and on every node of the structure except for ruling class which is founded on moral hazard and absolute infallibility as long as lower classes pay for rulers mistakes.
It could be difficult to accept following fact, but all the societal calcified structure, we are talking about here, are reaching down to the level of individual family, itself nothing but an abstract construct imposed by ruling elite, devised just to enable much stronger individual controls through means of intimate social alienation.
Such a mode of control is applicable to lower class as well but it is even more applicable to courtiers’ class where strict internal family power structure, with superiors and subordinates, is being considered as sacrosanct, instilled in their minds as a manifestation of unbreakable family bond, critical for physical survival of family.
This is the world where for millennia ever emerging and fluid ruling classes perfected methods of massive social control via techniques of precise dosing of societal rejection or alienation.
The social alienation is a powerful tool of manipulation and control, insidiously exploiting our innate need to belong, to be recognized, respected and accepted, to find support and to give support, to feel understood, to feel safe and secure, to successfully participate in development of society through life cycle of learning, accepting responsibility and proliferating acquired wisdom for benefit of all. To achieve satisfaction or happiness through contribution to well-being of others.
There are numerous examples of social control supporting this particular model, from acting upon fantastic national narratives down to intimate relationships of mental bondage, while extremely instructive in understanding of true purpose of the society and its mechanisms; they are unfortunately beyond the scope of this short form of expression. Although, it is definitely worth to revisit sometime in the future.

What is the question?
Is it possible that we live in the society as it was described above? Could the mechanism of control mentioned here be functioning in society we live in? Is it possible that we are conditioned to perceive our lives and our family in certain externally controlled ways? Is it possible, that the way we act is often in direct conflict with who we think we are?
Do you believe that you live in such stringently controlled society running by faceless ruling elites distracting you with all their economic games and political circuses? Do you feel it? Are you the one waking up from eternal torpor to see different light? You don’t know? You’re not sure? Know thyself.
Being awaken is like being in love, you know it, nobody can tell you, you are in love, you just feel it. If you are truly awaken, you should know it. You should just feel it.
But don’t worry. You know, you don’t believe in this control crap you just read. You know, you are in control of your own life. You know, how the world works, and nobody tells you otherwise. I promise you, by the time you finish reading this sentence, you will feel right like rain.

Hybrid Wars: The Indirect Adaptive Approach To Regime Change
August 17, 2015
Dear friends,
Our Saker blog contributor Andrew Korybko has just published his first book. Here is the press release written by our friends at Oriental Review. Check it out and make sure to grab a copy of the book!
The Saker
source: http://orientalreview.org/press-release/
Sputnik International’s political analyst and journalist, Andrew Korybko, just published his first book on “Hybrid Wars: The Indirect Adaptive Approach To Regime Change”. It was reviewed by the Diplomatic Academy of Russia and released with the assistance of the People’s Friendship University of Russia, where Andrew is a member of the expert council for the Institute of Strategic Research and Predictions. His detailed work proves that Color Revolutions are a new form of warfare engineered by the US, with everything from their organizational makeup to geopolitical application being guided by American strategists. But unlike earlier researchers who have touched upon the topic, Andrew takes his work even further and uses the latest examples of the War on Syria and EuroMaidan to argue that the US has deployed a second, more dangerous step to its regime change toolkit.
Hybrid Wars, as he labels them, are when the US meshes its Color Revolution and Unconventional Warfare strategies together to create a unified toolkit for carrying out regime change in targeted states. When a Color Revolution attempt fails, as it miserably did in Syria in 2011, the backup plan is to roll out an Unconventional War that builds directly upon the former’s social infrastructure and organizing methods. In the case of EuroMaidan, Andrew cites Western news sources such as Newsweek magazine, the Guardian, and Reuters in reminding everyone that in the days immediately prior to the coup’s successful completion, Western Ukraine was in full-scale rebellion against the central government and the stage was set for an Unconventional Syrian-esque War in the heart of Eastern Europe. Had it not been for the sudden overthrow of President Yanukovich, the US was prepared to take the country down the path of the Syrian scenario, which would have been its second full-fledged application of Hybrid War.
Andrew’s revolutionary research ultimately shows that it was the US, not Russia, which spearheaded the use of Hybrid Wars, and that given his proven findings, it’s irresponsible to even call Russia’s alleged involvement in the Ukrainian Crisis a ‘hybrid war’. In fact, the US is far ahead of any other country in practising this new method of warfare, as no other state has attempted a Color Revolution thus far, let alone transitioned it into an Unconventional War when their initial regime change plans failed. While some many think that such occurrences are spontaneous and happenstance, Andrew documents how Hybrid Wars are not only created from the ground-up by the US, but how they’re specifically deployed in areas where they’d be most geostrategically advantageous for the promotion of its unipolar policies.

Thus, not only does Andrew describe the very essence of Hybrid Wars, but the final part of his book forecasts where he believes they may happen next. He introduces the groundbreaking concept of the Color Arc, a contiguous line of states stretching from Hungary to Kyrgyzstan and where the waging of Hybrid Wars would most seriously damage Russia’s national interests. This is the first time that Color Revolutions have ever been analyzed through a geopolitical prism, and it brings forth a completely different way of looking at this weapon’s utilization. This new paradigm is absolutely essential for understanding the US’ new approach to regime change and the form, both physical and geopolitical, it’s expected to take in the forthcoming years.

Attorney General:
WS: 15 States Finally Standing Up Against Obama’s Unconstitutional Regulations
Tim Brown August 17, 2015 The Washington Standard
Fifteen State Attorney Generals have filed suit against Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency for their sweeping and unconstitutional carbon regulations.
The fifteen states who petitioned the court on Thursday are West Virginia, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
If you are like me, you are wondering where your state is in the list.
The Blaze reports that under the unconstitutional regulations, the EPA will “regulate the electricity industry and require states and utility companies to meet goals, providing rewards and penalties.”
EPA spokeswoman Liz Purchia told Reuters, “To ensure that the Clean Power Plan’s significant health benefits and progress against climate change are delivered to all Americans, EPA and the Department of Justice will vigorously defend it in court.”
Fine, but you have no constitutional authority to do so.
West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey said, “This rule is the most far-reaching energy regulation in the nation’s history, and the EPA simply does not have the legal authority to carry it out. With this rule, the EPA is attempting to transform itself from an environmental regulator to a central planning agency for states’ energy economies. The Clean Air Act was never intended to be used to create this type of regulatory regime, and it flies in the face of the powers granted to states under the U.S. Constitution.”
The attempt by the states could be more easily dismissed through nullification of EPA policies, since they are not even law and since the EPA is an unconstitutional agency. However, something had to be done immediately.
“If we were to wait on the EPA to get this rule published, it could be well into 2016 before the States complete arguments and receive a ruling on a request to stay this rule,” Attorney General Morrisey said. “By that time, many states will already be in the middle of drafting their compliance plans ahead of the September 2016 deadline. We want to ensure that no more taxpayer money or resources are wastefully spent in an attempt to comply with this unlawful rule that we believe will ultimately be thrown out in court.”
“While this request is not typical, the EPA is playing games by putting the risk of a delay in publication entirely on the states,” Morrisey added. “We hope the court will spare our states any more unnecessary harm, and that the EPA will not needlessly delay the publication date.”
Of course, Barack Obama, being the Marxist that he is, called the unconstitutional measures “the single most important step the U.S. has ever taken to fight climate change.”
The problem is that there is no climate change. There is no global warming. All of this is false science in order to extort money from the American people, impose communism in America, shutdown business and eventually control the people.
“This is one of those rare issues because of its magnitude, because of its scope, that if we don’t get it right, we may not be able to reverse it,” Obama said. “There is such a thing as being too late when it comes to climate change. That doesn’t mean it’s hopeless. We can take action.”
The problem is that men do not create the weather or change the climate.
It’s long past time that states began to start banding together to ignore, not go to court with, the federal government in matters like this. Furthermore, they should ignore the court’s ruling, which is just that (ie. A ruling), and begin nullifying and interposing themselves between citizens, businesses and other entities in the states and the federal government.
Better yet, why don’t we simply band together to eliminate the federal government altogether and go back to sovereign states and Articles of Confederation. That would eliminate much of the tyranny that is strangling us today.

ZH: From Crisis To Confiscation - Where Do I Store My Wealth?
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 08/17/2015
It's human nature for us to want to keep our wealth close at hand. Trouble is, you have all your wealth in one jurisdiction, and should that jurisdiction find itself in an economic crisis, all that “diversification” will be seriously at risk. If we’re being really truthful with ourselves, governments pose a greater threat than the average thief, as they can steal legally. Much of the world has gone on a massive spending spree and has, in effect, used a credit card to do so. Soon, that bill will need to be paid and the jurisdictions that are in debt will unquestionably be revealed to be insolvent. The economic crisis, when it hits, will be sudden and will be devastating.

According to the former brothel madam Myra Forde, Edward Heath 'had male prostitutes delivered to Westminster hotels'.
Edward Heath 'had male prostitutes delivered'
According to Myra, Heath made telephone bookings on Wednesday and Thursday nights and met the boy prostitutes in posh hotel rooms just yards from Parliament.
The 'boys' were from Spain, Portugal and Greece.
Myra Forde, 67.
Some time back, Winchester Crown Court heard that Forde trained runaway children as prostitutes.
The court was told that one 15-year-old, controlled by Forde, had sex with five men at once.
One 13-year-old would go straight from school to the brothel.

St. Ermin's Hotel, adjacent to the Houses of Parliament, has been a meeting place for the British intelligence services.
Myra says that when the police went through her accounts they said she had earned £1million.
Myra 'Ling Ling' Forde had a list of well-known clients seized by the police
Edward Heath brothel madam.
Some people might assume that the police seized the list in order to PROTECT Myra's clients.
According to Myra, a top BBC star of EastEnders was one of her clients.
Another client was a prominent national radio DJ who would ask for male escorts.
Myra says of her brothel: "We had all sorts of ­people in, actors, news presenters, MPs, barristers, judges and stockbrokers."
Myra says: "We had lots of celebrities."
Myra employed both male and female prostitutes.
Myra's brothel in Salisbury was raided in 1995.
She says: "Until that point I thought ... the police couldn't touch me."
One of the girls who worked for Myra Forde.
After the 1995 raid, Myra was convicted of running a brothel using under-age children and was jailed for six years.
Myra says that one of her clients "was a stockbroker... He liked to have a girl in the bath and he would hit her with fresh cream cakes, eggs, and milk. He would get in the bath with her and rub himself on her...
"Another man - he was a barrister from Winchester - when he was stressed and he had a case going on he liked to be dominated, punished.
"I would say, ‘You’ve been a naughty boy!’ There would be three escorts in the room and he’d pay more.
"One would be sitting on his back and they would be shouting, ‘Horsey!’"
The brothel.
Myra says there were solicitors who liked to burned with ­candlewax.
There was a farmer who would pay Myra to run over him in her car while he ­performed a sex act on himself.

Clive Driscoll (above) was the honest detective who investigated the 'CHILD ABUSE RING IN LAMBETH'
In his book, In Pursuit Of The Truth, he refers to an interview with a woman called Vicky, who later starved herself to death.
Vicky described Satanic ritual abuse of children.
Vicky had been adopted by a child abusing couple.
Clive Driscoll writes: "She talked about a place in Kent where she had been taken, along with other children, and made to run away from dogs.
"They were dumped in the woods and given a head start before the hunting pack was released. She survived. Other kids weren't so fortunate."
'Abused children's bodies are in lake'
There have been reports of dogs hunting children in other parts of the western world.
The child abusers involved have been top people in NATO, the military, banks and the aristocracy.
"There were cells where the children were locked up, awaiting their turn.
"There also were some cells for the dogs (dobermans)."

Driscoll writes:"So Vicky's facts weren't wrong.
"Everything else she told me needed taking seriously, including the fact that the injured children were thrown into a lake.
"When I checked the police records, I discovered that body parts belonging to five people had been found there."
Police had found two torsos bound together.

Homophobia is mainly a Jewish phenomenon.
The Hebrews wanted their tribe to produce lots of children.
The leaders of the Hebrews wanted their tribe to stand apart from the rival tribes, who were bisexual.
The Abrahamic religions spread homophobia around the world.
However, "historian Yaron Ben-Naeh has shown in his research that ... in Jewish communities in the Ottoman Empire same-sex relations were rather common."
Hans-Joachim Schoeps, a Jewish historian and theologian, argues that 'the prohibition in Deuteronomy' relates to a prohibition of a pagan cult and not to a prohibition of homosexuality.
Homosexuality Is Part of Jewish Tradition.

"Homophobia does indeed exist as a specific classifiable mental illness, ranging from mild anxiety to paranoia."
A History of Homophobia: 1 The Ancient Hebrews.
The Hebrew leaders were somehat neurotic.
"Unlike their contemporary Greek, Egyptian, and other civilizations, the Hebrews held the view that sex, the sex organs, and nudity were shameful.

First part Cataclysm, New Energy rising after Coronal Mass Ejection
Second part Breakthrough Energy and the Marketplace
Speaker : Dr Brooks Agnew
When the lights go out, and they will most certainly be turned off for a while, the real question on your mind is, "Will they ever come back on?" The answer is, maybe. Where are we without electricity? Where are we without our sophisticated electronics? The truth is, not too far from the days of steam power and horse-drawn vehicles. But is that really where we will be? Or is there hope for another dawn of energy and vehicle science that will save us?

Energy is quickly becoming a major part of the Cost of Goods Sold for nearly every business and society. The revenues for that energy have been isolated to a few channels of ownership for more than 150 years. For all of the trillions spent researching new ways to dig out the soul of the planet and burn it, hardly a penny has been spent on the energy innovations that could deliver endless supply for even the most remote areas. For all their steel and glass, smoke and steam, the energy industry is stuck in the stone age.
You are about to witness a Breakthrough Energy Business proposal that will take the human race into the next age of its evolution, and perhaps even past the stars of our galaxy.

FBI Evidence Proves Innocence of Accused Boston Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
Global Research, August 18, 2015
I have been contacted by attorney John Remington Graham, a member in good standing of the Minnesota bar. He informs me that acting in behalf of Maret Tsanaeva, the aunt of the accused Tsamaev brothers and a citizen of the Kyrgyz Republic where she is qualified to practice law, he has assisted her in filing with the US District Court in Boston a pro se motion, including an argument of amicus curiae, and an affidavit of Maret Tsarnaeva. The presiding judge has ordered that these documents be included in the formal record of the case so they will be publicly accessible. The documents are reproduced below.
The documents argue that on the basis of the evidence provided by the FBI, there is no basis for the indictment of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The FBI’s evidence clearly concludes that the bomb was in a black knapsack, but the photographs used to establish Dzhokhar’s presence at the marathon show him with a white knapsack. Moreover, the knapsack lacks the heavy bulging appearance that a knapsack containing a bomb would have.
As readers know, I have been suspicious of the Boston Marathon Bombing from the beginning. It seems obvious that both Tsamaev brothers were intended to be killed in the alleged firefight with police, like the alleged perpetrators of the Charlie Hebdo affair in Paris. Convenient deaths in firefights are accepted as indications of guilt and solve the problem of trying innocent patsies.
In Dzhokhar’s case, his guilt was established not by evidence but by accusations, by the betrayal of his government-appointed public defender Judy Clarke who declared Dzhokhar’s guilt in her opening statement of her “defense,” by an alleged confession, evidence of which was never provided, written by Dzhokhar on a boat under which the badly wounded youth lay dying until discovered by the boat owner and hospitalized in critical condition. Following his conviction by his defense attorney, Dzhokhar allegedly confessed again in jihadist terms. As legal scholars have known for centuries, confessions are worthless as indicators of guilt.
Dzhokhar was not convicted on the basis of evidence.
In my questioning of John Remington Graham, I concluded that despite 48 years of active experience with criminal justice, both as a prosecuting attorney and defense attorney, he was shocked to his core by the legal malfeasance of the Tsarnaev case. As Graham is nearing the end of his career, he is willing to speak out, but he could not find a single attorney in the state of Massachusetts who would sponsor his appearance before the Federal District Court in Boston.
This tells me that fear of retribution has now extended its reach into the justice (sic) system and that the America that we knew where law was a shield of the people no longer exists.

"It’s scary that a major nationally syndicated radio show constantly plays host to the most anti-Semitic, crazy whack jobs on the right and presents their nutty anti-Semitic world views as “expertise.” But that’s what’s happening more and more on Michael Savage’s nationally-syndicated show on Cumulus’ ABC Radio stations. Today, Savage hosted anti-Semite Paul Craig Roberts, who is as loony as they come. Savage said nothing as he let Roberts go on and on and on about how U.S. foreign policy is run by “neocons many of whom have dual Israeli citizenship.” He included in this group, Obama far-lefty Susan Rice. Susan Rice is a neoconservative? Only if you are clueless. She has dual Israeli citizenship? Really? That’s funny, since she’s extremely anti-Israel. But that’s what happens when a talk show host with no scruples has no prob presenting a former Assistant Treasury Secretary for a very brief period of time in the first Reagan Administration as a foreign policy expert when he has no foreign policy expertise whatsoever, unless you count “Blame the Jews!” as a foreign policy".

Altered Genes, Twisted Truth: Monsanto’s Silence is Deafening
By Colin Todhunter
Global Research, August 18, 2015
In his book ‘Altered Genes,Twisted Truths’, US public interest attorney Steven Druker exposed the fraudulent practices and deceptions that led to the commercialisation of GM food and crops in the US. Not long after the book’s release, he wrote an open letter to the Royal Society in Britain calling on it to acknowledge and correct the misleading and exaggerated statements that it has used to actively promote GMOs and in effect convey false impressions and the other to Monsanto. He followed this up by delivering a challenge to Monsanto’s headquarters on May 20, 2015 calling on the company to address the evidence presented in the book.
The fully referenced book exposes the substantial risks of genetically engineered foods and the multiple misrepresentations conveyed by scientists and official bodies that have allowed them to permeate world markets. Druker has given Monsanto a chance to publicly critique his claims and argues that if the company cannot prove that his book is essentially erroneous, the world will have a right to regard these controversial foods as unacceptably risky – and to promptly ban them.
‘Altered Genes, Twisted Truth’ is the result of more than 15 years of intensive research and investigation by Druker, who initiated a lawsuit against the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that forced it to divulge its files on GM foods. The book indicates that the commercialisation of GM food in the US was based on a massive fraud. The FDA files revealed that GM foods first achieved commercialisation in 1992 but only because the FDA covered up the extensive warnings of its own scientists about their dangers, lied about the facts and then violated federal food safety law by permitting these foods to be marketed without having been proven safe through standard testing.
If the FDA had heeded its own experts’ advice and publicly acknowledged their warnings that GM foods entailed higher risks than their conventional counterparts, Druker says that the GM food venture would have imploded and never gained traction anywhere.
He also argues that that many well-placed scientists have repeatedly issued misleading statements about GM foods, and so have leading scientific institutions such as the US National Academy of Sciences, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the UK’s Royal Society.
Druker states that contrary to the claims of biotech advocates, humans have indeed been harmed by consuming the output of genetic engineering. He also explains that laboratory animals have also suffered from eating products of genetic engineering, and well-conducted tests with GM crops have yielded many troubling results, including intestinal abnormalities, liver disturbances, and impaired immune systems.
Druker says:
Contrary to the assertions of its proponents, the massive enterprise to reconfigure the genetic core of the world’s food supply is not based on sound science but on the systematic subversion of science – and it would collapse if subjected to an open airing of the facts.
In his open letter to Monsanto, dated 19 May, Druker challenged Monsanto Chief Technology Officer, Robb Fraley, to:
Face Up to the Extensive Evidence Demonstrating that Genetically Engineered Foods Entail Unacceptable Risks and Should Be Promptly Removed from the Market.
Druker finishes his letter by saying:
If by July 20th you and your allies have not been able to refute the essential factual accuracy of Altered Genes, Twisted Truth according to the terms set forth above, the world will have a right to assume that it is as sound as the experts who reviewed it have affirmed – and to conclude that GE foods are unacceptably risky and must be banned.
In his letter to the Royal Society, Druker provides specific instances where its members have at various times made false statements and the institutes actions were not objective or based on scientific reasoning but seemingly were little more than biased and stridently pro-GMO. He argued that the Royal Society has misrepresented the case for GMOs and has effectively engaged in a campaign of disinformation.

Iraq Chilcot Inquiry: Complete Whitewash of the “Tony Blair Regime”?
Ongoing Criminality of Her Majesty’s Government, Five Year, £10 Million Whitewash
By Felicity Arbuthnot
Global Research, August 18, 2015
Calls Rise for Blair to Face War Crimes Trial
Bereaved UK families who lost sons and daughters in the illegal invasion of Iraq have now threatened legal action against Sir John Chilcot who headed the near two year long, £10m Iraq Inquiry (30th July 2009 – 2nd February 2011) if a date for release of Inquiry findings is not announced publicly within two weeks. Further, suspicions over the reason for the approaching five years near silence from Sir John are raised by a detailed investigation by journalist Andrew Pierce.
Writing in the Daily Mail (1) he highlights the seemingly close relationship between Sir John Chilcot and Tony Blair.
Pierce refers to Blair’s first appearance before the Inquiry five years ago when: “the Chairman, Sir John Chilcot treated him with almost painful deference.” What few realized was that Sir John, a former career civil servant: “could, in fact, have greeted Blair as an old friend.”
They first met in 1997 when Blair was still Leader of the Opposition, at the discreet Travellers Club in Central London, founded in 1819 as: “A meeting place for gentlemen who had travelled abroad, their visitors and (for) diplomats posted in London.” It continues to host: “distinguished members of the Diplomatic Service, the Home Civil Service …”
The meeting took place just months before Blair became Prime Minister. “John Chilcot, at the time, was the most senior civil servant at the Northern Ireland Office … Civil servants often meet Opposition politicians for briefings (prior to) elections but they are usually held in Whitehall Departments where (official) minutes are taken.” A meeting at the ultra discreet Club ensured “it was not made public.”
On becoming Prime Minister (2nd May 1997) Tony Blair: “worked closely with Chilcot on the Northern Ireland peace process.”
On Chilcot’s retirement he was: “knighted by a grateful Blair … in to the fourth most senior order of British chivalry.”
However, points out Andrew Pierce, Sir John never really left Whitehall, undertaking numbers of roles on public committees: “often at the behest of the Blair administration.”
Moreover, in 2004 Lord Butler was charged with convening an Inquiry: “into the role of the (UK) intelligence services in the Iraq war. Blair chose the Members of the Inquiry’s five strong Committee.”
Foxes guarding hen houses cannot fail to come to mind: “ Surprise, surprise, Chilcot was one of the first asked to serve on it …”
Unexpectedly however, the Butler Review as it was named: “Provided devastating evidence that (Blair’s) Downing Street, with collusion of intelligence chiefs ‘sexed up’ the threat” from Saddam Hussein”, yet: “concluded that no one should be held responsible.”
“In short, it let Blair off the hook.”
When Blair’s successor as Prime Minister, Gordon Brown – former Chancellor of the Exchequer who wrote the £mega million cheques for the illegal invasion, thus also part of the crime of enormity – established the Chilcot Inquiry in 2009, it was originally to be held “behind closed doors.” Uproar from opposition MPs, from senior military figures and the public forced it in to the open.
However Philippe Sands, QC., Professor of International Law at University College, London and barrister with Matrix Chambers, a legal firm established, ironically, by Tony Blair’s barrister wife Cherie, quickly questioned the suitability of Sir John to lead the new Inquiry.
Sands questioned what it was in his: “role in the Butler Inquiry that caused the Prime Minister to conclude he was suitable?” He cited a first hand observer who had described Chilcot’s: “obvious deference to governmental authority”, a view he had: “heard repeated several times. More troubling is evidence I have seen for myself.”
He was also dismissive of Sir John’s questioning of Law Lord, Lord Goldsmith, the former Attorney General, who had ruled that the Iraq invasion would be illegal – only to change his mind when Blair wrote on the top left hand side of the page: “I really do not understand this.”

Iraq Chilcot Inquiry: Complete Whitewash of the “Tony Blair Regime”?
Professor Sands – author of “Lawless World” in which he accuses former President George W. Bush and Tony Blair of conspiring to Invade Iraq in violation of international law – also cited: “Sir John’s spoon-fed questions” to the former Attorney General: “designed to elicit a response” demonstrating: “the reasonableness of his actions and those of the government.”
In context, in “Lawless World” Sands cites a five page long “extremely sensitive” memo (2) relating to a meeting between George W. Bush and Tony Blair at the White House on 31st January 2003. The memo was written by David Manning, Blair’s Chief Foreign Policy Advisor at the time, who was also present.
Content included Bush mooting the idea of painting a U-2 spy-plane in UN colours and flying it low over Iraq in the hope of Iraq reacting by shooting it down, providing a pretext for the US and UK to attack and invade.
It also confirms Bush and Blair agreeing to invade regardless of whether weapons of mass destruction were found by the UN weapons inspectors. This contradicts Blair’s statement to Parliament after his return that Iraq would be given a final chance to disarm.
Giving a further lie to Blair’s Parliamentary assurances, Bush is paraphrased as saying: “The start date for the military campaign was now pencilled in for 10th March. This was when the bombing would begin.” (See also 3.)
In an opinion which should surely be George W. Bush’s epitaph he told Blair he: “thought it unlikely there would be internecine warfare between different religious and ethnic groups” after the invasion.
In spite of the erased and ruined lives in millions, the ruins of Iraq, of much of Baghdad “the Paris of the 9th century”, of many of historical gems that have survived assaults over millennia but not Bush and Blair, it seems likely Chilcot’s Inquiry, if it eventually appears, will prove another dead end.
As Sir Christopher Meyer, former UK Ambassador to Washington pointed out: “When Downing Street set up the Inquiry in to ‘phone hacking (by) newspapers, it was a Judicial Inquiry, led by a Judge (with) powers to compel witnesses to answer all questions put to them. Chilcot does not have that power. A Judge should be running this Inquiry, not a retired civil servant.”
Prime Minister David Cameron has paid lip service to exasperation, but as commented on before in these columns, regards Blair as a “mentor” and in opposition aspired to be “heir to Blair.” He has also refused Sir John correspondence between Bush and Blair (held in government archives) which Sir John has been reported as regarding as essential to his findings. Current speculations are, unless the families of the bereaved win out, is that the world will see nothing until late 2016.
Another reason for the inordinate delay is the decision of the Inquiry to write to every witness criticized in order to allow them to respond. How very cosy. Imagine that in a Court of Law.
However, if any of the above has you wondering, there is far worse to come.
According to a recent report (4) although: “as many as one hundred and fifty (government) Ministers, civil servants and senior military figures have been sent details of criticism, including draft pages of the Report”, due to the structure of the Inquiry: “Ministers and officials accused of wrongdoing in (the) Chilcot Inquiry will never be named.”
Indeed: “One former Labour Minister is now said to be going through hundreds of pages of the report ‘with a fine toothcomb’. The ex-Minister has also been offered free legal advice from the Government.”
A £ ten million stitch-up?
Reg Keys, speaking for one of the bereaved UK families threatening action against Sir John Chilcot’s team, who ran against Tony Blair in his Durham constituency of Sedgefield as an Independent Parliamentary candidate in 2005, and whose son, Lance Corporal Tom Keys was killed in Iraq in 2003 has had enough. Tony Blair: “should be dragged in shackles to a War Crimes Court” he says (5.)
In a memorable speech (6) on the 2005 election night, Blair and his wife standing with frozen faces, as Keys vowed: “I’ll hold Blair to account.” Unlike Blair, Reg Keys speaks the truth.
