Please excuse the sloppy writing , but I haven’t got time to make it all short , snappy and clever.
I’m aghast at how the enormous number of “dots” being plastered all over the Internet are not being connected into a coherent picture , not just of what is happening , but the dirty details of how, why and by whom.
Now what’s already obvious to everyone is that the so-called “Police State” is far more advanced than we had hoped it might be so soon . And it should be equally obvious that the present state of affairs is not the result of “rogue” agencies , inadvertent “mission creep” , or the “unintended consequences” of policies written for some other purpose by well intended but over zealous public servants.
And no , I am not speaking of some vast and vague conspiracy of nefarious acronymed “agencies” shrouded in mystery.
I am speaking of a historical document written by and for the governments of the United States and United Kingdom themselves . Not only was it carefully vetted by them before publication , and given the official stamp of approval of both governments , but it was written at their behest in the first place . Remarkably , even the reason for publication at that particular moment in history is explicitly described in the book . ( it was to quell some very serious media and legislative inquiries into several major espionage screw ups back in the late 1960’s and early 70’s , the exposure of which presented a significant threat to the continuance of legitimate secret intelligence operations . . . if there even is such a thing . )
It is a book titled , “A Man Called Intrepid” (1976) , by William Stevenson , and you can go buy a copy of it from any reasonably well stocked book store . It’s about as controversial as a telephone directory .
Read it and weep.
Or don’t read it . In which case you might soon be crying yourself to sleep every night .
I will try to present , in the shortest possible synopsis , enough of what it reveals that you are persuaded . . . just this one time . . . to invest a couple of dozen hours of time and effort that may well save democracy itself for the next several generations . If you think it’s already too late for yourself , then think of your children and theirs’ , and the world which they have no choice but to live in.
In the run up to World War II US President Franklin D Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill foresaw that Adolph Hitler’s ( Nazi ) brand of fierce and aggressive fascism , posed an existential threat to humanity . They believed that the only way to stop him was war on a scale the world had never seen .
But the world had not yet recovered from the ravages of WW I , and very few people agreed with Roosevelt’s and Churchill’s views on stopping Hitler at all cost .
Therefore , Roosevelt , Churchill and a small but extremely powerful and influential circle of people throughout the democracies took matters into their own hands and formed a secret intelligence operation that was at first quite illegal in many respects ( and would certainly extremely embarrassing politically ) . It’s expressed aim was to drag the free world , kicking and screaming if necessary , into the war that those two leaders saw as the only means of preventing a dark age on Earth under the collective heels of Hitler (Nazi Germany) , Mussolini (fascist Italy) and Tojo (Imperial Japan) .
This collaboration grew , was successful , and gradually gained some degree of official ( albeit secret ) legitimacy , under the direction of a man code-named (you guessed it ) “Intrepid” , who was answerable solely and only to Churchill and Roosevelt personally .
It worked . Hitler was defeated , as were his Italian and Japanese partners in psychopathic tyranny (known then as the “Axis” powers ) , and the world became safe for Democracy . Or at least that’s what the book would have us believe .
It wasn’t , of course , because democracy had perished in the process . The methods ( and even some of the individual players ) and institutions created to defeat the “Axis” powers could not be put back into the bottle . . . regardless of what the book’s authors would persuade us to believe.
The book , for example , claims that the apparatus built under “Intrepid” was dismantled after the war . It wasn’t . It continued , grew exponentially , and pervades our lives today . The world they built is the one we live in .
Read the book . Draw your own conclusions . Save your own lives .
