Have you noticed, since the September 11th attacks and particularly in the last two Presidential (s)election cycles, some strange goings-on?
Have you noticed how almost all mainstream media and political figures indict foreign leaders, support questionable foreign non-state actors, or assert “red lines” in foreign affairs, without evidence given or requested?
Or perhaps you’ve observed how political media outlets regularly cover the media industry by addressing transparently partisan and petty criticisms as serious but ignoring or marginalizing substantive criticisms because of “industry realities?”
Have you seen how almost all political figures and media citing public dissatisfaction with vague descriptions of the prevailing order (“establishment,” “business as usual,” “Washington politicians,” “DC polls,”) without investigation of what or who comprises that order?
It feels a lot to me like we are living in an increasingly incompetent deep state.
In a simple sense, of course there is a deep state. People in similar work have similar ideas, socialize together, form relationships and have experiences in common. This is especially true if your work includes unique experiences like making decisions that affect the lives of millions of people. There are not many people able to understand what this involves. There will be more cohesion and commonality among those in government than the structure of the formal institutions would suggest.
But the formal institutional structure of the US is extremely robust. It’s almost impossible for a group outside of, or spanning across, the formal institutions to carry out a plan on any scale. There are secrets, and there are conspiracies, but there are just as many forces working to contain them as to carry them through. The US has a very good record, in the end, of bringing secrets to light and dealing with those who conspire against its institutions from within.
Most people simply do not care very much about federal politics, especial foreign policy( discretely controlled by Israel) . To the extent they take any notice, they are overly cynical about the reality and overly optimistic about the scope for change.
Remember, we’re all in this together,
