Double Agents, Disinformation, Astroturfing; They Haven't Gone Away You Know !

They Haven't Gone Away You Know !
Cast a cold eye On life, on death. Horseman, pass by! Epitaph on the grave of Irish Poet William Butler Yeats, written by himself with careful directions ! Most people live lives, blissfully unaware of just how much secret Government agencies control their everyday lives. The Latin phrase 'scientia potentia est,' is a maxim claimed to mean "knowledge is power". This power in western societies like the U.S. and U.K. is centered in hugely resourced secret agencies that controls almost every facet of life of the modern citizen.
The mainstream modern media for example, is almost exclusively controlled by these agencies in one way or the other. For example the BBC world service used the pretext of political vetting of prospective employees by MI5 via their Personnel Department, which included Graduate Trainees, journalists, arts producers and drama directors.
