"I'm not a spy' says Snowden
It might be becoming obvious that nothing can be taken on face value. Deception is part of the armoury of 'foreign relations' and this state of war is perpetual though varying in nature and intensity - and is waged on any populations by those who no longer have any sense of serving except in self-justifying fantasy.
Yet there is the competition as to which version of 'reality' is more 'real' and which is to be invalidated - increasingly with disregard for facts or Reason, as an attempt to dictate reality rather than discover and share it. Power corrupts and hollows out.
Any attempt to control Reality is absurd - yet the attempt to coerce and control the perceptions of reality operates a mentality of fear and division that runs as an undercurrent of our human conditioning.
The complexity of propaganda and disinformation includes leaks that are true, false, or selective of both, and responses to such events that are themselves part of the ruse. Perhaps there is also a feeling to protect people from what they are believed not to be capable of understanding or accepting. But it all works to undermine trust in authorities and institutions - which then fuels the reaction of such entities and futher escalates war-management in place of communication.
War is what occurs when communication and relationships break down. War waged upon communication and relationship is another matter, for it seeks to undermine all obstructions to its goal. Nothing true can be allowed.
The illusionist distracts attention from what is really going on. To be distracted by the personal is to miss the actual events in play, to be distracted by the events in play is to fail to appreciate the ideas they embody.
The hand that wields the USA like a puppet is also undermining its institutions and inciting dissension. Some may genuinely believe the New World Order as the solution to the disintegrating 'old world', but it dis-integrates as a result of the same mentality it presumes to rescue it with. Coercion is deceptive to its operator as well as to its subjects.
If Snowden is acting on behalf of hidden interests, it might be the desire to inhibit or deny the free flow of information through fear of every act being overseen by an all powerful dictatorship. It also unveils the 'coming out' of this power-politic from behind its presentations of freedom and democracy - which must then act more blatantly against its perceived 'threats', and thus polarize rejection and opposition to its 'notional interest' that has no basis in nationhood but only in those interests that use such terms as a mask for their own agenda.
Corporatism is associated with corruption and destruction that reaches globally, as well as making inroads into our minds and our biology. It's is an embodiment of ideas that are commonly held but running unchecked, as it effectively owns governments and media. The ego-centricity that is thus writ large is within us each and all, and I feel that we support and subscribe to such a world in choosing to use the same fearful mask-mentality as a 'self' that shares no real presence. Fear is not the only perspective available - but it wont believe this nor accept the way to be free to use it constructively - as a sense of alarm by which to uncover an illegitimacy or mis-alignment within our consciousness.
We are not the machine that Consciousness operates through, but are the Consciousness that made the mechanism within Itself. This is what we have forgotten. Opening to Consciousness is reclaiming natural authority - that lords it over no one nor hides from itself in self-specialness. Mind your own business - wholeheartedly. But to steal another's is to lose your own heart - and even the belief of having such embrace from within. Love's rejection is 'sold to us' in every kind of way. Why not tune into a different channel?
