Q: Why will there never be a coup d’état in Washington?

A: Because there’s no American embassy there.

State-Corporate Apparatus Control Public Sphere & Policy

...across the world the extinction and suffering of countless human beings could be attributed to rampant American power. "But," said Pinter, "You wouldn't know it. It never happened. Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn't happening. It didn't matter. It was of no interest." Pinter's words were more than surreal. The BBC ignored the speech of Britain's most famous dramatist.
John Pilger
BBC, in short, ensured that the British and other peoples did not know about the most crucially important speech about the Western states' war crimes since 1945 (see the list on left bottom). In Pinter's own words: "You wouldn't know it. It never happened. Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn't happening. It didn't matter. It was of no interest."
Homo Sociologicus
The Sociological Questionwhich sociological mechanisms may explain Pinter's observation on the Western states' neglience of its consecutive state war crimes on a Nuremberg scale. From Korea & Vietnam to Yugoslavia, Libya & Syria etc.?
 
The Answercorporate power relations control the Western political systems to a still larger extent. Not least on ‘foreign policy’. The states' intel agencies are generally corporate tools. They control the most important media, while hired academics at the universities and especially 'think tanks' write the demanded 'non-fiction' & 'analysis reports' to tell the media and the academic world, what to think. Basically, all (the rest) Western academics take the propaganda 'non-fiction' literature and 'analyses' seriously as if it had any resemblance to truth, while the media simply use and peddle the ‘well-established’ information as if it was sincerely researched information. You will probably only have to watch this one minute video expose of the US 17 'intel agencies' to see a vital glimpse of the the truth and have your trust in the official sourced changed radically. But you wouldn't know, it never happened etc., if you trust the BBC and other (state or corporate) Establishment media.
  
It is important to realize the incredible size of the US' so-called 'security complex':  "In 2010 (..) Washington Post reported that the national security state had swelled into a “fourth branch” of the federal government ― with 854,000 vetted officials, 263 security organizations, and over 3,000 intelligence units, issuing 50,000 special reports every year." Exploring the Shadows of the US Security State: How I Learned Not to Love Big Brother, August 24, 2017, By Alfred McCoy
 
Bill Clinton de-regulated the US media laws in the 1990ties thereby opening up for almost total corporate media control. Today six companies owe the right to tell 90% of all American media employees, what to tell the people and how. The European politicians, academics and journalists simply have to accept the information given to submise and enlargen the US (deep) state's control to Europe. This, they do. The added corporate control of the media also helped change the political development even further to the right. This has also made it easy for both national state and corporate media to more systematically employ right wing sympathetic journalists, who will not pose critical questions but will applaud the corporate sources and its neoliberal scripts for ideological reasons. In Denmark, for instance, we often see former right wing spin doctors portray as political analysts on national tv. And the once most trusted program is today also regularly hosted by a former right wing spindoctor. 
 
The late German editor of the Frankfurter Allegemeiner Zeitung, Udo Ulfkotte, published a book a few years ago, where he confessed to twenty five years of working for the CIA telling stories they wanted or gave him. Again, this should come as no surprise if you  know even a bit about the CIA's history of infiltration in Western states. But of course, you wouldn't know it... The CIA and MI6 and other 'intel agencies' influence all over the media to have their (corporate masters') agendas represented as they want. The former US war hero and Pentagon employee Richard Ford has stated that the 'Syrian Laboratory for Human Rights', you know, the man in Coventry Link, who has supplied Western media with information on Syria the past years - is simply a MI6 front. 
 
The CIA and other Western intel agencies hire and pay thousands of analysts and journalists to write the 'news'. No less problematic, from a democratic and anti-war perspective, is the apparatus' ability to pay big money to PR companies and hire thousands of people to smear and work against critical academics and journalists both under cover in the public and on the social media. A single PR company was paid $500 million dollars to do propaganda for the war on Iraq: "A former contractor for a UK-based public relations firm says that the Pentagon paid more than half a billion dollars for the production and dissemination of fake Al-Qaeda videos that portrayed the insurgent group in a negative light." 2016, The Independent LINK
 
This article can be considered critical important information. But such critical information always come too late, with the goal of backing up the media's own credibility so as to able to be function as effective tools for the next big lie and propaganda project. The only thing we can know for sure about the establishment media is that they will never tell the most important truths about their way of doing journalism for the corporate agenda. Just as they will never tell the truth that NATO has employed jihadist mercenaries for the past forty years, where media such as the BBC and the Independent still systematically suppress the truth and help lie for more of the corporate empire's wars. Link
 
The corporate powers even get useful idiots volunteering to support the apparatus, when for instance sincere 'critical' academics, lacking the skills to understand it all, voluntarily suppress themselves and everybody else, when they go out to defend the established media and write ridiculing texts about 'conspiracy theorists’. 
 
This chaotic 'behemoth' public sphere, where nobody knows who and what to trust, is a great achivement. The politicians are never put to account. Everybody in the public sphere 'work together', from covert and overt hired hands to cunning intel agents, sincere and insincere politicians, academics and journalists, indistinguishable from each other, they simply present the peoples with a more or less uniform but mostly completely false information. This way, critical thinking and the truth on all subjects is systematically suppressed. This way, the Western peoples are presented with a most biased and often completely false corporate ordered information about reality. This way, we have gained a still more ‘totalitarian’ Western public sphere. This way, we can now more than ever appreciate the warning by the French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu, who said that the concerted assault on critical thought in the eighties and nineties is a great danger for our democracies.
 
The Evidence: The apparatus is as extremely powerful as it is dangerous. The information is so clearly false, when compared to the information available on the alternative media. But It is easy to understand if most people cannot imagine the description above to be the truth and prefer to think that the Western academics are trustworty, and that the media produce journalism.
 
But... there is an insurmountable logical problem, for the apparatus and all its implicated cunning-intel-hired-hands-and-non-critical-minded-useful-idiots-academics-journalists-and-neoliberal-politicians. That is, if one thinks about it. For the apparatus’ very success and still greater success in mobilizing the Western peoples to applaud consecutive state war crimes on a Nuremberg scale (destroying nation after nation with still less noteworthy academic, political and journalistic opposition and critique) is simply the greatest possible evidence of its totalitarian nature. When we apply critical historical knowledge on the former wars, what we know today, and confront it with the uniformly presented information given to us up to and under the wars, it is obvious that the Western public spheres have functioned as one big totalitarian apparatus.
 
To mention just one example. Today we know, and the British Parliament has acknowledged it as a fact, that basically all information leading up to and under the NATO war on Libya was false. We also remember - or can go back and check the given information - that there was No oppositional information back then. This lays bare the naked truth. Because, when we know today that basically all information was false and nobody contradicted the information then, it must be logically true that everbody talking about Libya then, all politicians, all academics and all media must have been telling the same lies. There is simply no way of denying this. It is what Karl Kraus and Ludwig Wittgenstein would call a one-and-a-half-truth.
 
This way, everybody can know for a fact that every period's information has shown up to be evidence that our states and public spheres are rotten to the core. This applies both to domestic and foreign policy. 
 
To bear witness and enlighten people about the kind of totalitarian world we actually inhabit, I research to collect the best critical (= true) academic knowledge and journalistic information on different topics. Not least the former wars. People may find the most trustworthy information about the former wars and the totalitarian lies that accompanid them on my pages on Korea, Vietnam, Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria etc.    
 
Many truths about how the corporate empire manages to control the production of knowledge and information to serve its agenda and interests 
 
Then, 1908: "We are in the hands of an organization of crooks. they are politicians, generals, manufacturers of armaments, and journalists. All of them are anxious for unlimited expenditure, and go on inventing scares to terrify the public and to terrify Ministers of the Crown." Lord Welby, 1908, in The Makers of War, 1950, Francis Neilson // Free Pdf 
 
Now, "In 2010, almost a decade into this secret war with its voracious appetite for information, the Washington Post reported that the national security state had swelled into a “fourth branch” of the federal government ― with 854,000 vetted officials, 263 security organizations, and over 3,000 intelligence units, issuing 50,000 special reports every year." 'Exploring The Shadows Of America’s Security State. How I learned not to love Big Brother', August, 2017. Prof. Alfred W. McCoy 
 
E P Thompson: "...the growth of an unrepresentative and unaccountable state within the state has been a product of the twentieth century. Its growth was, paradoxically, actually aided by the unpopularity of security and policing agencies; forced by this into the lowest possible visibility, they learned to develop techniques of invisible influence and control. It was also aided by the British tradition of civil service neutrality: this sheltered senior civil servants from replacement or investigation when administrations changed, and afforded to their policies the legitimation of ’impartial, non-political’ intent.'The Secret State',1978  
 
 
The Western intelligence agencies' philosophy since the 1930ties: "“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.” - Edward Bernays 
 
 
CIA's most succesful 'psyop' has been to dupe people to suppress themselves and others from taking seriously any 'Conspiracy Question' related to the CIA, the Western governments and media. It is a fact that CIA invented the term 'Conspiracy Theory' to have people in the media ridicule and suppress critical questions about the CIA, the 'deep state' and the US government. Historical knowledge about 'Conspiracies' is crucial for a sociological liberation of people's minds. NB: 'Conspiracy Theorists USED TO Be Accepted As Normal, 2015, Zero Hedge In fact: "The Constitution, Magna Carta and Democracy Itself Are Based on the Idea that – Without Checks and Balances – Those In Power Will Take Advantage of Us". 'America – and Western Civilization As a Whole – Was Founded On a Conspiracy Theory', 2012, Washington Blog. This book explains:"Why has suspicion of criminal wrongdoing at the highest levels of government been rejected out-of-hand as paranoid thinking akin to superstition?" Conspiracy Theory in America (Discovering America), 2014, Lance deHaven-Smith
 
"In the United States today, the phrase `conspiracy theory' functions as a sort of giant cudgel, used to scare us out of talking openly about a broad (and ever-growing) range of scandals that the powerful cannot afford to let the people comprehend. In this new book, David Ray Griffin takes devastating aim at that repressive tactic, exposing it for what it really is. All those who cherish democracy, and intellectual freedom, owe it to themselves to read this brave analysis---and owe its author their sincerest thanks." --- Mark Crispin Miller (Professor of Culture and Communication, New York University) on: Cognitive Infiltration: An Obama Appointee's Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory, 2010, David Ray Griffin
 
"... this is a very serious work, because it heads off a dangerous and frightening attempt by a high official of the United States government to promote illegal and even unconstitutional acts on behalf of his government in order to protect it from inconvenient citizen inquiry and investigation." E. Woodworth Reviews Cognitive Infiltration

"In an article published in the Journal of Political Philosophy Sunstein and Vermeule propose that the government and its allies infiltrate groups that promote conspiracy theories deemed (somehow) to be “demonstrably false.” They take conspiracy theories about September 11 as their “running example.” Sunstein now heads up the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, and has been described by Elena Kagan as “the pre-eminent legal scholar of our time”." Hagen Reviews Cognitive Infiltration
 
 
Needless to say, CIA's 'Conspiracy' meme is effective. It is clear that the smear of being 'a communist' has been replaced with being 'a conspiracy theorist' to be ridiculed - or interrogated. But, everyone who uses the words 'Conspiracy Theory' on critical questions helps the CIA suppress everybody - including himself - from taking seriously the very questions that could expose CIA, the 'deep state' activity and our governments' criminal actions. Think of a few facts. 1) WW1 and WW2 were institaged by big business, see HS page.  2) The nazis invented propaganda on an industrial scale (according to the German philosopher Ernst Cassirer), where they became experts in the most cynical use of false information, conspiracy politics and false flag operations (committing a crime and blame an innocent part). Goebbels' philosophy of propaganda is curriculum in the US intel agencies. 3) A large number of nazis went to USA after the war to join US intel agencies. 4) The recent NATO wars were led by a totalitarian information uniformity given up to and during the wars, by the Western politicians, 'think tanks', academics and journalists. The fact that we know today that the info on these wars was (incredibly) false is historical evidence that they lied - all of them. But, the conspiracy meme is holding us down. See HS pages on former wars. History, logic and critical thinking are fascism's worst enemies. The truth is that the Western world's foreign politics has never been more 'conspirational' orchestred. And that this is still made possible by suppressing the most urgent critical questions and responsibilities.   
 
"Dr. Ulfkotte says the corruption of journalists and major news outlets by the CIA is routine, accepted, and widespread in the western media, and that journalists who do not comply either cannot get jobs at any news organization, or find their careers cut short. (..) I ended up publishing articles under my own name written by agents of the CIA and other intelligen-ce services, especially the German secret service." Editor of major German newspaper [Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung] Says He Planted Stories for the CIA, 2015 (more Ulfkotte and CIA in the Media to the right of the page)
 
"Operation Mockingbird is a CIA project to subvert the original mission of the news media, to control corporate media for its own purposes. The existence of such projects should explain the rationale of this website." Wikispooks (..) "[it] began in the 1950's and was organized by Allen Dulles and Cord Meyer. The CIA spent today's equivalent of one billion dollars a year hiring journalists from Corporate Media including CBS, The New York Times, ABC, NBC, Newsweek, Associated Press and others, to promote their point of view. The original operation reportedly involved some 3,000 CIA operatives and hired over 400 journalists." 
 
Frances S. Saunders, Who Paid the Piper: The CIA and the Cultural Cold War (1999): "This book provides a detailed account of the ways in which the CIA penetrated and influenced a vast array of cultural organizations, through its front groups and via friendly philanthropic organizations like the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations. (..) Saunders, details how and why the CIA ran cultural congresses, mounted exhibits, and organized concerts. The CIA also published and translated well-known authors who toed the Washington line, sponsored abstract art to counteract art with any social content and, throughout the world, subsidized journals that criticized Marxism, communism, and revolutionary politics and apologized for, or ignored, violent and destructive imperialist U.S. policies. The CIA was able to harness some of the most vocal exponents of intellectual freedom in the West in service of these policies, to the extent that some intellectuals were directly on the CIA payroll. (..) It is impossible to believe their claims of ignorance of CIA ties. (..) How could they ignore the absence, during their cultural congresses, of criticism of U.S. imperialist intervention in Guatemala, Iran, Greece, and Korea that led to millions of deaths? How could they ignore the gross apologies of every imperialist crime of their day in the journals in which they wrote? (..) The idea behind [it all] was to showcase U.S. culture, in order to gain cultural hegemony to support its military-economic empire." James Petras review in MR, 1999
 
"The International Organizations Division was a division of the CIA set up in 1950 to promote anti-communism[1] by manipulating international psychological warfare operations. Its first head was Tom Braden. The IOD operated according to the same principles that guided Wisner's management of the Non-Communist Left. The purpose of supporting leftist groups was not to destroy or even to dominate, but rather to maintain a discreet proximity to and monitor the thinking of such groups; to provide them with a mouthpiece so that they could blow off steam; and, in extremis, to exercise a final veto on their publicity and possibly their actions if they ever got too 'radical'. Braden issued clear instructions to his newly established IOD posts in Europe: 'Limit the money to amounts private organisations can credibly spend; disguise the extent of American interest; protect the integrity of the organisation by not requiring it to support every aspect of official American policy." Wikispooks from Saunders  
 
"E.P. Thompson called it the ‘Natopolitan’ world: that is, not just Nato plus all the Cold War military and political institutions that were integral to it, but also a mentality whose web extended over a lot more activity and thought, even in the minds of individuals, than anyone at the time had suspected. Of course there were the revelations in the mid-Sixties about Encounter and the CIA, and later in the US and Britain a stream of disclosures about covert counter-insurgency in every form, from secretly underwritten academic research to assassinations and mass killings. Yet it still gives me an eerie feeling to read about people like George Orwell, Stephen Spender and Raymond Aron, to say nothing of less admirable characters of the Melvin Lasky stripe, taking part in surreptitiously subsidised anti-Communist ventures – magazines, symphony orchestras, art exhibitions – or in the setting up of foundations in the name of ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy’ (..) One of the rare dissenters, Charles Burton Marshall, is quoted here as saying that this bizarre operation to ‘counter Communism’ by trying ‘to break down ... doctrinaire thought patterns’ and anti-American attitudes throughout the world was ‘just about as totalitarian as one can get’."

“Omission is the most powerful form of lie.” – George Orwell
 
"[Orwell] noted, “political language has to consist largely of euphemism, question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness.” Orwell provided some examples: “Defenseless villages are bombarded from the air, the inhabitants driven out into the countryside, the cattle machine-gunned, the huts set on fire with incendiary bullets: this is called pacification.” This type of “phraseology is needed if one wants to name things without calling up mental pictures of them.” Today, we use words like counterinsurgency and counterterrorism to describe virtually the same processes. (...) These critiques are arguably more valid today than when Orwell wrote them some 67 years ago. Today, we not only use political language to discuss ‘democracy’ and ‘liberty,’ but to justify war and atrocities based upon our ‘humanitarian’ interests and ‘values.’" Political Language & the 'Mafia Principles' of International Relations.

"It is the function of defense intellectuals and other experts, and the mainstream media, to normalize the unthinkable for the general public.

"American author Mark Twain wasn’t fooled by the jingoistic broadsheets, nor by the administration’s claims of support for Cubans, nor by its claims to want to bring democracy to the Philippines (). Twain said, “…we have gone there to conquer, not to redeem”. [But] The imperial machine marches on, like W.H. Auden’s driveling ogre, subjugating nation after nation that attempt any sort of freethinking alternative to indentured servitude to the globalists. The tactics of the state and the machinations of the media are little different than they were in 1898. Both seek to cloud the clarity of imperial crimes behind a façade of moral necessity."

CIA works for the corporate powers, what some call the 'deep state'

For example: "The CIA recruited the Muslim Brotherhood to fight a proxy war against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, which led to the withdrawal of the Soviets from the Hindu Kush. Since then, the CIA used the mercenaries to fight more proxy wars in the Balkans, Chechnya, and Azerbaijan. Due to the wars of aggression against Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen the US and its vassal states created sectarian violence that led to civil wars. Right now, the CIA and the Muslim Brotherhood are present in the form of ISIS in Syria and Iraq." 'US Empire, CIA, and the NGO's, Watzal & Engdahl, 2017

"Kucinich recommends we “look at the foreign policy establishment of the United States of America” that, he explains, includes people in the State Department who have a neoconservative ideology, in the Pentagon who are dedicated to the military-industrial complex, and in the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) who can “conjure conflicts” and “try to justify the further involvement of the military and the State Department.” This, Kucinich says, “is the permanent government ..." Dennis Kucinich Discusses the ‘Permanent Government’ Behind US Foreign Intervention, Nov 2017

It is vital to understand that centuries with wars have been orchestrated by Western corporate powers disguised by lies and propaganda. Corbett gives a very important explanation of today's US 'foreign policy' logic - Yes, it is a fact that Rockefeller has been behind most of it. Corbett compares the corporate logic behind WWll, where German I. G Farben people were in fact convicted for being responsible for the Nazis' foreign policy at the Nuremberg Trial. But other Western corporations also helped pay for Hitler's way to power in 1933. Corbett also explains about the US 'Government Sachs'. See clip from the Nuremberg Trial, at 9 minutes of Corbett's video here, 'Meet the Corporatocracy' // See more on: HS Big Business Behind WWl & WWll
 
Today. It is still a tiny group of incredibly powerful corporate people, who control a tiny group of incredibly influential 'Think Tanks', which work to legitizime their corporate masters' policy wishes and tell the (also corrupt) US politicians and the rest of the world the What, Why and How of US 'foreign policy'. There are many 'Think Tanks'. But most powerful is probably the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) led by Rockefeller for a lifetime. 'The Unauthorized Biography of David Rockefeller', 2017, Corbett
 
"Politicians – Senators, Congressmen, Presidents, Prime Ministers, Parliamentarians – all attend their relevant organization’s functions, participate in “discussions” and hold memberships in their CFR-related clubs for the purposes of receiving their “marching orders” from their bosses." Hillary Clinton (2016): "We get a lot of advice from the Council, [they tell us] what we should be doing and how we should think about the future." Hillary Clinton Brags about Getting Her Marching Orders from the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), 2016, Brandon Turbeville // Hillary Clinton Brags, short Video  
 
"Finance and war are interrelated in three quite general respects: finance needs to be raised in order to fund war; war can be used for the pillage that replenishes finance; war can serve as an outlet for the capital on which finance can draw profits, in particular through arms manufacture and its associated businesses. Those functions can be mutually reinforcing." Finance, War, and the Rule of Rogue Law, 2017, Tim Hayward
