§5. Perfidious Albion and the Walrus, January – June 2016

Dec 2015 – Nov 2016

[The prospect of a U.S. president prioritizing U.S. national interests sowed panic among top Administration officials, whose careers were devoted to the interests of other nations and to international bureaucracies. In the chancelleries of Europe, the groves of academe, the editorial offices and TV-news studios, and in the cloud-chambers of the technocracy, resonated the fear that such a president would be apocalyptically dangerous.]

[With the exponential growth of mass surveillance in the first two decades of the 21st century, the United States entered a new era. Vastly expanding the reach of surveillance to people without the slightest hint of enmity transformed nearly everyone into a de facto enemy of the State, to be spied upon, watched, and monitored for any sign of opposition. With universal espionage, the spy agencies adopted the role of an adversary toward the citizenry. ]

[Accordingly a British ex-spy employed by the governing political party delivered fantastic stories of Russian escapades to all and sundry — to the spy agencies, Congressional committees, State Department, newspapers, Internet aggregators, and anyone else of a mind to credit them. The spy agencies published their assertions in cooperating media, then cited these publications as evidence of their veracity. This technique of mutual verification later blossomed into a quadraphonic medley with the cloud-dwelling technocracy and bottom-dwelling investigators adding their voices.]

A Timeline of 21st-century U.S. Political Transformation

Perhaps this timeline will help dispel the collective amnesia, the tendency to tune-out, that engulfs everyone who tries to make sense of what goes on from day to day.

Please see §1. Introduction: A New Method of Understanding the Unprecedented at Substack.

Our knowledge of significant events comes to us in reverse order to their actual occurrence. First something unexpected bursts upon the scene — a war, a political upset, a plague, a terror attack, an economic collapse. Then we learn a little background information. The belligerent parties were already at each others’ throats, the economy had been teetering on the edge of collapse for years, sleeper cells had been lying in wait undetected. Inconvenient facts emerge, implicating people responsible for preventing the very calamity that occurred. Trivial details ‘hiding in plain sight’ take on new salience. Records of cash transactions, secret communications, confidential meetings, travel documents are revealed. Lawsuits, legislative hearings, and FOIA requests extract more information in mind-numbing detail. Recognition-seekers boast about their roles. Conspirators have a falling-out, and blab. Finally a pattern falls into place, or if not a fully coherent pattern, at least a perspective that suggests where to look for answers. [Continued here]
