Subterfuge - the 'American Way'


"What matters is not to know the world but to change it."

--Frantz Fanon


Subterfuge, which is the strategy of deception and deceit, is now the very basis of and for the policies and practices of the corporate-owned U.S. crime syndicate, known as this nation's government. Nothing, absolutely nothing, that this government and its servile puppet - the corporate-stream 'news' media disseminates - can or should be wholly believed.


Unfortunately, there is also even a segment of the so-called 'alternative' U.S. media that is surreptitiously acting as a fifth column of dissemination for the propaganda of the U.S. government's endless distortions, omissions, and subterfuge. The approach to news and analysis by this particular segment of the allegedly 'alternative' media is to gain the confidence of its unsuspecting viewers and/or listeners, as being 'progressive' and unbiased, in order to parrot (using slightly different rhetoric) essentially the same fallacious propaganda as the corporate-stream media. Moreover, this segment of the so-called 'alternative' media always stops short in its analyses, of calling for unequivocal and total systemic change, and cannot be trusted on the domestic or international levels because, notwithstanding its repackaged rhetoric, it has primarily the same agenda as does the government and much of the corporate-stream media. Only its style of presentation is different. It is, in fact, no real alternative at all.


Everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people in the U.S. have been deluged for so long with subterfuge and stealth by corporations, the corporate-owned government, and the corporate-stream media that it is a daily challenge to seperate informed facts from fallacious fiction. Nevertheless, this is precisely what we ordinary people must do - seperate informed facts from fallacious, debilitating fiction.


The subterfuge and disinformation on the part of the corporate-owned U.S. government and its minions has had, and continues to have, disastrous consequences on the daily lives of struggling everyday people in this nation and throughout Mother Earth.


The vicious frame-ups, entrapments, and wrongful imprisonments, etc. of and by the U.S. government's infamous Counter Intelligence Program [i.e. COINTELPRO] continue today and have now been legally codified in the so-called 'Patriot' Act and the NDAA (otherwise known as the National Defense Authorization Act). There is no action too loathsome, too dastardly, or too amoral for the corporate crime syndicate U.S. government (and/or its agents) to engage in, in order to 'neutralize' political dissent, political dissenters, and a genuine everyday people's 'democracy' in the United States itself.
