Many wealthy investors, and economists are aware of the institutional crime prevailing all sectors of society on Earth and I find it noteworthy when some of them make the intentional effort to share a part of it with the world. Shadow government and shadow banking are too rarely reported on in the mainstream media for it to be understood by everyone.
I look forward to the public discussions and trials that put an end to secret authority controlling institutions, and I welcome efforts that rightfully restores personal sovereignty to the People on Earth.
Thus I say thank you Martin Armstrong and others who report on the institutional shadows. ~Ron
Edward Bernays, considered one of the founders of Advertising, Marketing, and Public Relations, wrote:
THE conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.
We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.
Our invisible governors are, in many cases, unaware of the identity of their fellow members in the inner cabinet.
They govern us by their qualities of natural leadership, their ability to supply needed ideas and by their key position in the social structure. Whatever attitude one chooses to take toward this condition, it remains a fact that in almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons—a trifling fraction of our hundred and twenty million—who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind, who harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world.
The Fourth Branch: Deeper than the DEEP STATE
While many have been writing about the DEEP STATE as an unholy alliance between government and the corporate world, the deeper problem is the FOURTH BRANCH (the real shadow government) that shares nothing with the corporations and Snowden’s documents show they operate behind the scenes and do not even inform the elected politicians they also do not trust. They exist and will always exist at the core of everything and they are beyond the law for most of what they do nobody has a clue and there is no oversight. When there is some pretend oversight, they spy on that as well as Feinstein just learned. They see themselves as the real government protecting themselves from the madmen that run around in their wildest dreams.
Snowden’s information has been all about the privacy. Some of our BRAIN-DEAD politicians still see him as a traitor saying he should have gone to them not to China or Russia. To make this perfectly clear, the very documents he had demonstrated they are also the targets and cannot be trusted. He did not run to China or Russia, but to the British newspaper the Guardian for no American would dare publish it. He fled to Hong Kong because Congress would NOT protect him. He fled to Russia when they called for his head as a traitor. Sorry, but the people are sovereign and disclosing what Congress and the FOURTH BRANCH does can NEVER be treason when that person is telling their only sovereign – the people.
