The founder of WikiLeaks Julian Assange was dragged out of the Ecuadorian embassy in London and was taken to jail by the London metropolitan police. Since its founding, WikiLeaks has exposed the callous manipulation, stupefying indoctrination, intensive surveillance and many other evils of the leading operators of the modern world system to the general global sheeple (human mass). Of course, these revelations were not what the ‘deep state’ wanted exposed. Therefore, all kinds of pretexts were concocted to undermine WikiLeaks as well as arrest Julian Assange. The ‘deep state’ doesn’t want such attitude/behavior to take root and is willing to do anything to stop it!
One of WikiLeaks major releases (2008) was on the institutions of global economic governance, namely the World Bank, IMF, etc. The document brought out the following; ‘…the US government admits to “a long history of conducting economic warfare” and using “financial weapons” against governments that do not bend to its will. The “participation” of international financial organizations like the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) offers the US “diplomatic-financial venues to accomplish” these goals. Julian Assange was arrested on 11 April 2019 and IMF approved a loan of USD 4.2 to Ecuador on 13 April 2019. Since the new Ecuadorian government came to power, it was clear that Assange’s days in the London embassy were numbered. The present Ecuadorian government rescinded Assange’s asylum status by stating; ‘Assange was trying to use the embassy as a ‘center of spying’! Assange was without a computer, newspaper, books, etc. for over a year. In fact, one can say he was held incommunicado in the embassy for months.
The objective of the ‘deep state’ is to make sure the global sheeple remains docile and just follows the order or directions of the power that be. However, in this day of informatics and general awareness, the global sheeple is bound to bring up serious questions with a view to getting honest and convincing answers, in regards to the whole unsustainable mode of existence pursued by global order. But again, this is something the ‘deep states’ of empire are unwilling to do. Hence, the emergence of: WikiLeaks, Antimedia, Anonymous, Extinction Rebellion, Yellow Vests, etc., etc. In fact, these are still operating, willy-nilly, within the established protocol of the status quo. But there are now other non-state players emerging across the globe committed to violently dismantle the existing global order. Instabilities in places like MENA (Middle East & North Africa), Africa and increasingly South America, are all symptoms of what is to come. What is to be done?
Many of the Wiki+ are already infiltrated by empire’s deep state. For example when Wikipedia came around, it was, by and large, kosher, i.e., it was trying to impart knowledge to the world without much built-in bias. Today that has changed drastically. The deep state has taken over the task of introducing various new entries as well as the job of vigorously editing inputs forwarded by others. The manipulation of undesired facts has become one of the permanent undertakings of the deep state’s cyber soldiers. Hundreds of cyber soldiers continue to add, edit and eliminate entries as desired by the deep state. One might still look for certain things in Wikipedia, without much cynicism. For example, trying to find the distance from earth to the sun on Wikipedia might still be ok. But when it comes to historical, sociological, cultural, racial, etc. issues, one has to be very careful. Entries are edited to reflect the ideology and culture of empire, past and present. We can give plenty of entries that were changed to undermine certain aspects of African, Asian and South American history!
New ways of organizing society is needed, given the proliferation of extreme surveillance by the ‘deep state’. First and foremost, the global sheeple has to accept the fact that we live in an Orwellian order par excellence! Without acknowledging this fact, many of the potential strategies that are being entertained will not go very far. Secondly, the alternatives must anticipate serious and continuous confrontations from the power that be. Wars, genocide, etc., have all been used to subjugate or eliminate dissenters of the system. Thirdly, the world has to agree on the fundamental notion of resilience or what is gullibly called sustainability. By sustainability we mean not only the human activities that are in sync with nature, but also human organizations that are less prone to conflicts. As it stands, the current logic of capital is not in tune with such sentiments. Subjugation, domination, exploitation, etc. (of all and sundry) are its creed!
The deep state wants to stop investigative journalism, particularly if it is targeting its interests. As far as the deep state is concerned, whistleblowers must be punished and the case of Assange is to demonstrate just that. But the sheeple will not be silenced anymore, because it now knows what is going on behind the scene. The MSM (main stream media) is thoroughly discredited and many have stopped listening to it. In fact, MSM is a member of the deep state itself! See the articles next column and on page 44. ‘Journalism is printing what someone else doesn’t want printed. Everything else is public relation.’ George Orwell. “You have to start with the truth. The truth is the only way that we can get anywhere. Because any decision-making that is based upon lies or ignorance can’t lead to a good conclusion.” Julian Assange. Good Day!
