Assange’s WikiLeaks Unforeseen Role

( – promoted by buhdydharma )

At least, GOD, I hope this is unintentional.

You see one of the tenets of The Shock Doctrine is that seldom do things “happen” outside tacit approval. They did not “get” Bin Laden, because it did not “serve” the greater purpose of war profiteering and re-engineering the Middle east to become Open Markets for the Western Profiteers.

Yet, as Europe starts to rebel against the Oligarchy and the “austerity” measures meant to ensure that the plebes ask for nothing, and accept their lessened lot so that the wealthy can still live in the manner to which they are accustomed, I wonder.

In this, the surveillance age, they cannot find this man and stop him?

Or does letting this information leach out incrementally serve a more nefarious purpose to those (and it is a target audience) who would read it?

Psychological warfare is subtle.


Regardless of Julian Assuange’s intent, the repercussions ring with me.

Like the Shock and Awe plan, one has to realize they will stop at nothing to reach their goals. It was one thing when we thought torture and “stress positions” were applied, perhaps, perhaps, by wrong minded zealots trying to protect America.

These documents prove more. In order to shock the population into a subjugated position of survival, complete blankness borne of shock and unreality, they stopped at nothing. Rape. Beheadings. Child abuse. Civilian decimation.

We get to learn first hand how vicious these men and their directors can be. Worse, we get to find out they can do it without oversight, repercussion or a qualm.

This serves, if nothing else, to frighten the hell out of those of us who are aware of what it is they are really doing, and oppose it as much as the Iraqis who saw their economy replaced by a US economy, completely outsourced. They went so far as to import the very concrete as opposed to employ an Iraqi company to make it. They wanted consumers, but not even the cheap labor. They wanted occupation and the rape of every fucking cent.

This leak came right before the elections, yet overtly will not influence them.  The left will think that it is proof positive of the demonic bent of the right, the right will see it as proof positive the left hates America.

The post-election itinerary is already set.  No matter who comes out ahead, Social Security and Medicare are on the table for cuts and the Rich get to keep their tax breaks.

This LEAK, this first-hand report of the atrocities done by our men and women, our tax dollars, and in our name has done NOTHING to change policy, nor does it cause the reporting Media to gnash their teeth and call for heads.

All this report has done is strike fear in the hearts of those who oppose what is going on, and serves as a nice little warning to those of us who oppose the status quo.

The message: They will stop at nothing.

There is a stage in torture called the showing, the ramping. It is where they show you the torture devices, sure that your fear will envision worse, and is more effective psychologically than the actual pain is. This feels exactly like that on the eve of austerity.

Be sure, in the name of “Order” they will and are capable of anything. First they take our ears… cell phones and internet gone. Then they take our eyes, shutting down power grids and doing enough bombing to keep us indoors.

Then they make examples, easier yet when we already know they are the monsters of our worst nightmares.

The isolation is crushing for most, in and of itself. Not being able to call a daughter, or a friend, and saying. “I’m ok, we are still alive.” The worry, The doubt. The wondering. The lack of communication. The Isolation itself.

In this world of internet, TV, iPods, IPhones, and instant gratification, that alone will stun most people into a fetal position. Those of us who have spent time with quiet, real quiet, in the woods, at sea, in the mountains, have learned to “be” without constructed input. There is input enough living in the world. I worry for those who cannot bear silence. It is coming.

I wonder if this is a “showing” or if that is an unforeseen consequence.

But AUSTERITY is coming, and we have been shown, CLEARLY what our enemies are capable of doing to human beings.

Do not let it make you fearful.

Let it make you more resolute.

Truth is good. Wikileaks is good.

But beware what it does, and talk among your people. Realize that it could be used to keep you in shock and awe.

Your strength lies internal. They can do nothing to our spirit, no matter what they try to do to our minds and bodies.

They DO have a plan. So must we.

  1. …We need to heed your words and recognize the lessons, the warnings for our future, which have become more and more clear over the last few years and demonstrated so clearly in these Wikileaks.

    Thanks for your strong, passionate writing.

  2. Wikileaks is him as a spokesman, and millions in the ranks.

    They can kill him, put his head on display, and we’d still leak.  

    With surveillance culture comes a need to store that surveillance on a computer or connect it to a network of some kind.  

    Also, weez da peoplez got encryption too 🙂

    If you store it we can hack it, if we can’t hack it we can socially engineer our way access to it and as long as humans are operating the machines and making them, there will be flaws, and we will exploit them.

    Expect us.

    we have two types of foreign policies when it comes to our pursuit of badly needed resources and crucial delivery arteries in our intended regional colonies:

       1- The Written Policies: to be used and promoted as marketing tools, yet to remain only as melodically written policy literature. This is where you hear phrases like cooperation on security and against terrorism, or better, democratization.

       2- The Unwritten and Unspoken Policies: to be secretly, vigorously, and ferociously practiced and implemented, under the self-created carte blanche ‘The End Justifies the Means.

    Boiling Frogs

    The first is what we see brought to us by the political elite and parroted by the corporate media. As for the second one there are clues and patterns. Pay attention to what is not said, relevant facts that are never mentioned.

    Also with respect to UBL, a week or so back there was a report in the corporate media that he is alive and living comfortably in northwest Afghanistan. This announcement must be some part of some propaganda or misinformation program or does it have something to do with pre-election politics? I’m still trying to understand why and what.

    As you quite astutely note in your essay with regard to “the surveillance age” we live in, this seems to be a very strange report.

  4. Oh, that’s right, I read somewhere that as an aside Mr. Assange assures us the official OBL conspiracy theory re 9/11 is correct.

    How convenient.

    Or to look at it another way, how much trouble would it be for e.g. the Mossad to “neutralize” WikiLeaks or Assange if, say, Israeli secrets were at stake? Secret Gaza material, or a new Mordechai Vanunu or USS Liberty type expose?

    WikiLeaks won’t match Daniel Ellsberg until it shows the public the extent to which the entire conventional American framing of Middle East events-i.e. not just Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, etc. today but also Israel/Palestine since 1945-has been a tapestry of lies.

    We can hope, but I’m almost betting nothing like that will ever happen.

  5. A most excellent diary.

    Thank you.

  6. First they take our ears… cell phones and internet gone. Then they take our eyes, shutting down power grids and doing enough bombing to keep us indoors.

    That’s the export version.  The domestic market version works just the opposite, they keep our eyes and ears filled with distraction, distortion and disinformation sufficient to keep us confused, divided and directionless, all the best to encourage us to drift docilely into subjugation, without peep of insurrection.
