We can define a ‘deep state’ as a state ostensibly and constitutionally democratic but whose major decisions are made (or influenced to a high degree) by functionaries of the military-intelligence-industrial-banking-media complex (MIIBM.) By and large, these functionaries are not popularly elected. In ‘deep states’, electoral democracy serves, rather effectively, to legitimize the strategies & workings of the MIIBM operating behind the veil of democratic governance. If truth be told, it is not democracy but rather plutocracy that obtains in practically all the deep states of the world! Recall; ‘plutocracy’ is the rule of money, while ‘democracy is the rule of the demos (people/mass). At the dawn of the 21st century, it is the contention between these two forms of governance (archetypically speaking, between capital & labor) that has started to dominate the human world of political economy, yet again!
The resident beast (human mass) of the ‘deep states’ has become increasingly aware of the ‘Snowdian’ situation in which it finds itself. For instance, the beast recognizes it is quite impotent when it comes to having meaningful inputs in policy formations. From experience, (time and again) the beast has realized election slogans such as; ‘change you can believe in’ pretty soon sour and become more like ‘change you cannot believe in’ and ‘yes we can’ ends up being ‘no we can’t’! Be that as it may, it seems there are now uncoordinated activities here and there (by the disgruntled beast) to try to tackle the impasse.
No wonder the scenario for ‘electoral democracy’ looks gloomy in many of the deep states. See Martin’s article next column. So far, the beast’s rumblings are being managed (somewhat successfully) by the status quo via its many subversive and not so subversive ways. Lies/brainwashing/indoctrination, staged incidents (false flags), etc. are still the old sacred cows of deep state operators, which are conveniently used to muzzle critical analysis/debates/comments. True to their ‘Snowdian/Orwellian/ Frankenstein/ devotion, the fixers of the ‘deep states’ are currently devising all sorts of additional monstrosities. To think, nay, to witness, such cowardly machination taking root in the land of Jefferson et al, without massive rebellion, (on the part of the victims) is not only frightening, but is truly depressing. So much for the land of the free and home of the brave!
Obviously, the beast is increasingly determined to devise its own narratives and pursue the practical implementation of the findings thereof. For example, cessation has become one such objective. Northern Italy (Veneto, …) , Scotland, Catalonia, Flanders, and more are seriously considering to go it alone, whether referendum is permitted or not! A number of the European population is dissatisfied with Brussels’ policies & the whole of the EU bureaucracy. Observing the reality of countries and their peoples on the ground, one can be excused for thinking the technocrats of the nation-states as well as the EU have completely lost their very raison d’être. Instead of serving the interests of the various beasts, they succumbed to serving the few entrenched interests that are mostly geared to worshipping the logic of capital, not the desires of humans! At this point one can ask; what is the difference between a ‘deep state’ and ‘fascism’? Traditionally, fascism was defined as ‘corporate-o-cracy’, the collaboration of big money and the undemocratic state. Can it be; the current ‘deep states’ are the ones on the verge of unbolting from the semblance of democratic governance? Critically posing such questions is tantamount to answering them by half! See interviews with RT on page 27 & 34.
As usual, we get our inspiration from those brave souls of the past. Here is a forewarning by a sensitive and perceptive author of a bygone era. “There will be, in the next generation or so, a method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.” Aldous Huxley. Good Day!
