Deep state using alliances with big tech companies to push more people to believe in false narratives
In the truly free society that our founding fathers envisioned, the central government was relatively weak in terms of day-to-day governance, responsible for ‘macro’ aspects like national defense, border security, delivering the mail, and ensuring that the country’s institutions were protected.
But fast-forward a couple of hundred years, and today’s federal government has become every bit the tyrannical leviathan that our founders feared, due in large part to a combination of voter apathy and self-appropriation of power.
How else, then, could government engage in what amounts to daily psychological warfare against the American people and get away with it, were it not for “alliances” with certain corporate and government entities?
Thanks to billionaire Elon Musk, we now know just how pervasive the government’s efforts were to ‘merge’ with big tech companies in order to a) push misinformation under the guise of combatting misinformation; b) have counternarratives (a.k.a. the truth) suppressed; and c) have ‘pesky’ spreaders of counternarratives (a.k.a. real journalists) banned from platforms, thereby denying them their voice. The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security were especially involved, as was the CIA.
Now, however, we learn that the effort to continue subverting the American people is ongoing — and widening, as WorldNetDaily reports:
“Joe Biden’s director of National Intelligence, Avril Haines, has confirmed the White House has worked hard to ‘debunk’ what it believes to be ‘disinformation’ and ‘false narratives.’
And the recommendation to her from a leading British intelligence officer is that to do more, the government, and tech companies, should ‘pre-bunk’ that ‘disinformation so that people come to believe that government-backed narratives can be trusted.’
A report at Warroom.org explained it was a ‘stunning admission’ that came during a conversation involving Jeremy Fleming, chief of the Government Communications Headquarters in the United Kingdom, and Haines on BBC Radio.”
Fleming recommended that intelligence agencies ought to be in the business of preemptively destroying “certain narratives” – which is literally no different than what those same agencies do in other countries in attempts to undermine and topple their governments.
Haines discussed how the White House has been “influencing the information landscape about the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war under the pretense of minimizing the spread of ‘disinformation.’”
She explained, about the Russian agenda, “We saw that they were looking to create a pretext for the invasion and we wanted to sort of debunk that and help people understand that this was a false narrative. We were able to have an impact in a sense on the conversation about this.”
Continuing, she elaborated, “So we recognize that we were able to have impact in countering disinformation but that there were limits on what we were able to do and that we needed to understand that in order to really understand how we can counter this moving forward.”
The report went on to say that Fleming insisted bluntly that intelligence agencies should deploy information in a manner to “pre-bunk” other information governments do not want their people to see or accept.
“You’ve put a lot of effort into getting secret intelligence, but I always think it’s no point collecting it unless you use it. The sea change we’ve seen during this conflict of getting the intelligence out there and using it to ‘pre bunk,’” Fleming explained, while encouraging collusion between government agencies and private big tech companies in order to “shape narratives” (i.e. create lies and false narratives).
“It can’t just be government and intelligence voices out there. There have got to be other voices. One of the critical aspects from this conflict has been the way the private sector has played a part.” “Big Tech,” he said, should be part of the equation.
Our ‘democratic’ governments and institutions now lie to us just like the ‘tyrannical governments’ we are told to hate.
