How the Internet Makes False Flags More Difficult
The "Internet Reformation" (as we call it) is a natural outgrowth of our perception that the 'Net itself is a kind of modern-day Gutenberg Press. It's a concept we've been writing about for nearly a decade. Initially, it seemed like an interesting theory, but everything keeps falling into place and the historical parallels are startling. What they seem to reveal is an upcoming electronically-based Renaissance of sorts.
This is of course not necessarily a popular view. The alternative Internet media is often relentlessly gloomy. One is bombarded daily with information about the 5,000-year-old evil of the Illuminati, the impossibility of stopping the New World Order, the invulnerability of the world's great banking families such as the Rothschilds and Rockefellers who are said to control tens or even hundreds of trillions.
And yet, look around. Despite the challenges, there is plenty of evidence of pushback. And why shouldn't this trend continue, no matter what counterattacks are made?
Look at history. The Catholic Church launched its Counter-Reformation but wasn't successful in stopping either Lutheranism or Protestantism. The elites of the day tried to license printing presses but were not successful. They tried to confiscate books as well. Finally, they tried war, but eventually had to declare a peace via the Treaty of Westphalia that established the modern nation state.
What was seemingly at work then, as now, is Marshall McLuhan's "hive mind." People may scoff at the concept of a hive mind, but humans are seemingly structured to seize on the most modern concepts as part of the struggle to survive and get ahead. The stale nostrums of the modern Dark Age – the 20th century – are giving way to a dawn of knowledge hitherto repressed by the power elite.
The discovery of the 10,000 year-old-city of Dwarka off the coast of India, the probable reality of a universe organized by electricity rather than gravity, the existence of abiotic oil generated by geological processes, the reality of vitamin therapy and naturopathy have all found popularity on the Internet – along with the free-market economics of Austrians such as Ludwig von Mises. Twenty years ago, such concepts and discoveries would not have been mentioned, generally, let alone circulated.
The Internet has begun to blow up power elite memes – the fear-based promotions by which the Anglo-American elites have sought to control society. Literally trillions of dollars have been thrown into an effort to create a network of political structures (UN, IMF, BIS, etc.), think tanks, educational facilities and popular media that can amplify these dominant social themes. Once they have become part of the public consciousness, authoritarian and globalist solutions are inevitably proposed. It looks like a natural process but in fact, it is an entirely artificial one.
The same process takes place as regards investing. Fear-based themes such as global warming are promoted with increasing fervor over years and decades. International political solutions are introduced along with corporate solutions. Companies large and small proclaim "green" solutions even though global warming has been massively discredited.
And the scale at which the Anglo-American power elite works is almost unfathomable, and the current conspiracy to create One World Government probably goes back at least 300 years. From bases in the City of London, the Vatican and Washington DC, seep deliberate promotions – often seemingly honed within the Tavistock Institute. A handful of great banking families along with their religious, corporate and military facilitators, go to work to waft them around the world.
Once the dominant social themes and sub themes are distributed via the controlled mainstream media, the UN and other internationalist institutions produce solutions that inevitably involve more control for the globalists at the expense of the world's unknowing citizenry.
There are vast sums of money to be made as well within this great game of mind control. Private companies are provided with "solutions" to the elite promotions of the day. These entities, controlled by the elites, funded by their hedge funds and private money, are gradually released onto the world's great exchanges.
Once the companies are public, cash is funneled back to its inevitable elite destination where the "wisemen" have vast seed positions at virtually no cost. The great families and their facilitators siphon off proceeds from their manipulations and invest the funds in more tangible assets such as real estate, oil and precious metals. The real estate is developed; the oil is marketed; the gold and silver finds its way back to Switzerland where it is stored in deep vaults and subject to off-the-books accounting by Switzerland's many private banks.
It is probably that simple. First they seed the fear, then they deliver the dreams, then they blow off their 8.5 x 11 pieces of paper into smaller pieces of paper (fiat money), then they quickly convert that devaluing paper into tangible assets. Central banks are the control hub that gives the elite this power through money creation. Mainstream media is complicit in aiding and abetting the entire societal wealth-draining process, which is cloaked under a statist religion we call "regulatory democracy."
This is the process that seems to have emerged painstakingly over the past century.The artificial business cycle itself helps consolidate this centralization. It is a work of virtual genius that has been elaborated on patiently over decades and centuries. Fortunately for the rest of the world, the Internet and its billions of bloggers and viewers has exposed every part of its operations. This is becoming a problem for the elites as the dollar reserve currency gradually collapses along with faith in individual securities investing to generate retirement income.
All these manipulations are increasingly exposed. How do I know? You're reading this article aren't you? And even those who do not read this article may read similar analyses elsewhere. The same thing happened once the Gutenberg Press was discovered. People read the bible for themselves in vulgate and began to realize that the current corrupt version of the Roman Catholic Church did not correspond to the Holy Word. The word spread; revolutions and regime changes began.
It's happening today for the same reasons. There were financial crises in Europe when the Gutenberg Press was expanding its influence. The financial crises combined with the explosion of information offered by books to create the Renaissance.
The elites of the day tried to manipulate the explosion of knowledge via the Reformation (to split the Catholic church) and by fomenting the French Revolution. But for several hundred years, nothing worked as it should. Secret history seems to show us that no matter what the elites of the day did, freedom and knowledge expanded.
We are still at the beginning of such a point of departure. The elites, having created a second, electronic printing press by mistake may now have to take a step back as they did before, 500 years ago. One can see knowledge spreading.
Google's search engine provides us with literally tens of millions of cites for Mises, Hayek and free-market economics. There is a great hunger for information about free-markets and free-market thinking and the Internet has made it possible to satisfy that need.
It seems to have taken about 100 years for the Gutenberg Press to spark the Renaissance, the Reformation, the Enlightenment, the Glorious Revolution, the American Revolution, the French Revolution and numerous other social changes. The impact of the Gutenberg Press likely was responsible for a number of ill-defined "Peasant" wars as well, that raged across Europe for 30 years.
The wars were so numerous finally and so wide-ranging that the European leadership of the day had to convene a peace conference in Westphalia that lasted a full decade. Out of it emerged the concept of an inviolate nation state. No country had the right to attack another.
This Peace of Westphalia was deliberately overturned by the UN Security Council in 2005. Something called the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) was substituted in its place. R2P virtually demands that if a leadership is "threatening" it citizens, the big Western powers have an affirmative obligation to intervene. R2P has now embroiled the West in numerous major, military confrontations.
One of the ways that the elites responded to the advent of the Gutenberg Press was through war – and more war. Various low-key wars spread across the length and breadth of Europe. It didn't do much good, though. The Renaissance still happened. The Reformation spun out of control. British royalty was overthrown. The New World was discovered and populated. Freedom was rediscovered and the scientific method was introduced.
One can make a case (and we have) that this paradigm, exactly, is repeating itself. It may be true that an Internet false flag event is being planned by Western elites. War on a false enemy may be declared as a result – and laws passed to restrict the Internet and block the alternative media – all in an attempt to stop truth-telling. But while many who are predicting the demise of the Internet (as a facility for the free dispersal of knowledge), I don't.
There are signs of what is to come. The hacker group Lulzsec recently took down the CIA web site after attacking US Congress web facilities as well. Some have claimed Lulzsec is itself a front for US Intel agencies. Suspicions have been raised as well about the hacker group Anonymous. We reported the other day about CIA Director Leon Panetta, who said in a recent hearing that the US may soon face a cyber attack that would be the equivalent of Pearl Harbor. Alternative Internet websites increasingly have been filled with articles about potential false-flag events.
Over at Washington's Blog, for example, we find an article on false flags entitled, Are Hacker Attacks False Flag Attacks to Justify a Crackdown on the Internet? Washington relates how former Counter Terrorism Czar Richard Clarke told a leading expert on internet free speech, Stanford law professor Lawrence Lessig, that there was going to be an "i-9/11″, in other words, an electronic terrorist act, and an "i-Patriot Act" to crack down on freedoms on the Internet under the guise of protecting against such threats.
Washington, like many from the blogosphere, believes that like The Patriot Act, an i-Patriot Act is "sitting in the drawers of the Justice Department for the last 20 years waiting for the event where they would pull it out." This may well be the case. But there are still stubbornly lingering questions over 9/11, with many, according to surveys, apparently harboring suspicions that 9/11 itself constituted some sort of false flag operation intended to start wars and introduce even more authoritarianism into the US.
If one goes online and queries Google with "Internet false flag" nearly FOUR MILLION cites turn up. There is a good deal of consciousness within the alternative press at this point about such potential false flags. A false flag by definition is a secret manipulation. How can an Internet false flag be introduced logically when everybody knows about it and is expecting it?
There are many ways it can happen of course. But in fact, with secrecy all but undermined as regards these black ops, the Anglosphere elite that surely wishes to undermine the Internet Reformation is going to run into considerable pushback if it tries one of these operations. This is not to say it won't happen, only that it may not be nearly as effective as some are now predicting.
This article has tried to show that what is occurring today with respect to a major societal shift in understanding also happened 500 years ago with the advent of the Gutenberg Press. The parallels exist for anyone who wishes to scrutinize them and the affinity of the trend lines are being drawn realtime.
The elites of the day seemingly could not control the ramifications of the Gutenberg Press no matter what they tried to do, and they evidently tried everything from war, to licensing, to false flag events and social manipulation. It didn't matter; force never solves anything longer term. Indeed, "the pen is mightier than the sword." Now, nearly 600 years after Gutenberg's original invention of mass conversation, a "great shift" – Internet Reformation – has begun anew.
Of course, analyzing history in hindsight is a difficult occupation. Certainly people can come to a different conclusion, or even entirely reject this analysis as facile. But for me the parallels are clear. The Internet Reformation itself may prove a great deal more resilient than some now believe. The human hive mind is busy buzzing. The spread of knowledge – real knowledge – continues. The Dark Ages of the 20th century begin to lift and Dreamtime subsides. Information about free-markets continues to spread. Are these trends reversible? Don't think so.

"I think most of us would agree that the media by and large throughout the West are in the hands of a few very wealthy people"
David, that's so 90's. The media *were* in the hands of &etc. Past tense. Welcome to the second Reformation :)

I'm glad that you differntiate between Lutheranism and Protestantism in this article. Lutherans do not consider themselves Protestant. Indeed we consider ourselves catholic in that we are in the train of classical and historical Christianity, but not by any means *Roman* Catholic. While Luther may have satisfied a lot of other players (which is always open to debate), his theological contributions are huge. Although he himself considers only two of his numerous volumes as worth keeping: the Small Catechism and The Bondage Of The Will.

I think most of us would agree that the media by and large throughout the West are in the hands of a few very wealthy people who are all connected in some way and want to control society for their own benefit. To this end they have used these media to propagate and project their world view into the consciousness of their audience which comprises the majority of the population.
Now along comes the Internet or more precisely the World Wide Web to poke a hole in this plan so the cryptocracy will have to somehow shut it down or gain control over it to maintain their monopoly on what the people think and believe. To this end they will stage some kind of "event" that will give them the excuse to radically change the way the WWW operates and to put them in the driver's seat.
This may well be the case but I believe they have a back-up plan, an alternate strategy. It may be that like the stage magician they are distracting their most alert opposition that communicates via the WWW while in the offline world they are implementing a truly devilish plan to control the minds of the people without their consent or knowledge through more physical means.
In the early 1970's I recall reading an article in the magazine Psychology Today about research into physical mind control. I went out and bought a book of that name recommended in the article and although it was way above my head for the most part I believe I got the gist of it. The general idea was that human behaviour and what is more surprising human beliefs and thinking are controlled by specific zones in the brain and that they can be manipulated chemically to achieve desired outcomes. Anyone familiar with the effect of drugs on belief systems will be familiar with this idea. Indeed the Greek word for sorcery which aims to control thoughts, emotions and beliefs is farmakeia. That was forty years ago and one would assume that significant strides have been made in this field and indeed they have.
They have now developed a drug that can affect the DNA structure within the brain of a subject in such a way that their propensity to believe is altered. Click to view link These drugs can be introduced through the mass vaccination channel and I believe they already have been, at least in trials connected with children's vaccinations. There was quite an uproar in the UK about the connection between vaccinations for MMR and the onset of autism. This is also a source of much controversy in the US. Click to view link
The conclusion is that the cause may be the toxicity of the mercury in the vaccine but there may be a more sinister cause. Today I read some articles on the BBC website that caused me to make the connection that certain trials may have been conducted without the consent or knowledge of the subjects, in this case children receiving their usual childhood vaccinations. Click to view link Click to view link If indeed these chemicals had been introduced into a limited number of the MMR vaccines targeting the DNA mentioned in the articles then this would have given rise to the autism recorded.
There was also an article that suggests that the research into these brain altering chemicals continues and may be coming to a flu vaccine near you shortly. Click to view link
Of course I may be completely off track here but I offer it for what it is worth. Never underestimate your enemy.

"Perhaps the "holograph" concept is a straw man from somewhere? "
A straw man from somewhere? I like that. It's right up there with "People who emit Cherenkov radiation make me nervous."

Kind of an intriguing idea. My first thought was "how many people would everyone need to know if they were only six people away from knowing everyone on the planet. Popular wisdom (completely unverified by me) is most people have active connections to about 150 other people at any given time. So if that were true, 6 degrees would put the total number at a little over 11 trillion, which is about an order of magnitude greater than the planet's population, so it might be true.
But you also have to figure that out of the 150 people you connect with regularly, quite a few also know each other. How do you model that?

Now here's the challenge to test your theory: in line with Leonard Cohen's "First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin", the next false flag is planned for Berlin on 26 June 2011, 6pm: the opening of the world cup. Google for German lawyer Torsten van Geest accusing Merkel and Koerting for not warning the population of false flag attack by foreign secret services. More on http://bit.ly/ky4h9X

What is it called, six degrees of seperation? The idea that we are only 6 poeple removed from knowing everyone else on earth. The internet must have an effect on that. Maybe there is now only four or five degrees of seperation. I wonder if the PE have considered this? Oh so messy.

In the 60's there was the Whole Earth Catalog, where "undergroung information" started it's journey to the mainstream concious- McCluen's "hive mind" was discounted as to socialistic, and removing the individual identity-- The 60's protest of Vietnam, many thought the reason for being there was the offshore oil deposits, that the governments were fabricatingthe need for South Vietnamese " freedom", much the same rhetoric as we hear today with Iraq, Afghanistan, same policy same corrupt leadership, same locals with the " hive mind", willing to blow themselves up for the sake of thier opinion....I believe the internet has opeded a lot of doors for better information, but in other ways it has become a Pandora's box of sorts, with so much mis information, false flag stories on both sides,still those reading the "news" have to learn to think for themselves first, nor just believe anything they are told on the Internet... There seems to be more than a few people bent on destroying the world we live in, Pannetta's cyber attack would be meaningless if so much information wern't accessable thru the database, there in lies the weakness of the Internet , the Pandora's Box, so to speak.. out of the 4 million hits on Google- how many read past page 5 ??? do we need that much information - I agree with many parts of this editorial but being the Devil's advocate won't hurt either

From time immemorium little men have sought to control the uncontrollable from the 'Tower of Babel' thru' the Egyptians, Babylonians, Greeks, Romans, Ghengis Khan, and so forth it has always failed. The combination of Hubris and Gnosticism - I am God - must always fail for we are weak and small, and our God will show us how small we really have been and continue to be so.

Actually, such viruses probably cannot be so deadly. If you have the source code of the virus then you see what exactly it does and defend from it, no matter how hideous and self mutating it is. Even if you do not have the source code, probably you can decompile what's in it and surely there are enough brilliant hackers that would come up with something. Computer viruses have the problem that you can locate the code, in contrast to Bin Laden (he cannot be located), and that is problem.
False flag operations require an underlying credible background and then an extraordinary miraculous event than can be explained in the context of the credible background. Hopefully no virus can become so deadly because well implemented firewalls have done and always will do the job, and to pretend otherwise would appear very suspicious to the largest part of the IT community.

I fully concur with this statement. I see in it hope that the internet will also help people realize the benefits of Adam Smith's "Real Bills Doctrine" to create a workable monetary system in an effort to achieve a higher quality in the standard of living.

Truth is the only foundation that stands the test of time....and perhaps the PE is well aware that their edifice is based on a foundation of untruth. It is only the faith that people have in this created edifice that keeps it standing. These internet folks poking about with their flashlights around the foundation of the edifice has a real danger of compromising that faith of the common man in the "edifice". Truth shall overcome!
