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.

British Double Agents
British Double Agents

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.

A graphic illustration of their was the attempt to blacklist Roland Joffe one of Britain’s most distinguished film and television directors whose track record included The Killing Fields, for which he received an Academy Award nomination and The Mission which won the 1986 Cannes Film Festival.

An older article titled Ulster on the Euphrates is critical to understanding the U.K.s colonial experienced contribution, to teaching the U.S. the nuances of controlling their new neo-colonies, such as oil rich Iraq and Libya. The British colonial experience and experiments throughout the world is best illustrated by Frank Kitson’s ‘Low Intensity Operations’.

The recent dismantling of the Peace agreement in Occupied Ireland by the latest Tory Government and their colleagues in the Blue-shirts of the neo-colonial Irish free state is the latest extension of this. Ireland being Britain's first colony is still the place where their agencies experiment with their paramilitary police equipment, population control techniques, counter revolution and media manipulation, in modern social media such as facebook and twitter.

Double-agents, dis-information, fake astroturfing support groups, censorship and intranets, are just a small part of their ongoing arsenal in experiments, later exported for social control of groups world wide, like the 'Occupy' movement. Plastic bullets, extra-judicial killings, political internment, journalist extermination, lawyer liquidation, are just some of the other experimental techniques still being developed by the British in Occupied Ireland, for export to the U.S. and its neo-colonies.

While publicly the stated cover of the British, is to "Normalise" their occupation, "Ulsterise" their paramilitary force such as the PSNI or political collaborators such as Provisional Sinn Fein and "criminalise" traditional Irish republicans. They infiltrate Irish republican groups even on Facebook, with their sponsored "hoods" and "gangsters".They have now handed their centuries old experimented colonial techniques of Ulsterisation, Criminalisation and Normalisation on a platter to the CIA and the Pentagon.

So the next time you are on Facebook, have a second look and check if that support group, has the credibility of long standing traditional Irish republicans alligned like to trusted Irish republicans like Ruairi O'Bradaigh or have the continuity of the genuine Irish republican heritage. The British are saying publicily the 'War' is over in British Occupied Ireland but the experienced are say, these double agents haven't gone away you know ! Have another look at what that support group on Facebook is really saying next time or censoring and have another look at that critical insight link: Ulster on the Euphrates !
