Failing State's Deadly Post-Truth Order

The Marshall Plan is often cited as the extraordinary innovation that enabled the world to recover from the ravages of World War II, with a bold vision for harnessing international partners and private sector to rebuild a devastated Europe. Arguably, there is a similar level of challenge facing the international community today, with every indication of it worsening into the future.....

2019 – A Deja Vu in Terms of Protests?
November 12, 2019 VOICE OF AMERICA
FILE - Protesters wave Lebanese flags during an anti-government protest in Beirut, Lebanon, Nov. 10, 2019. The Arabic writing beneath the fist reads "Revolution.
It was a revolutionary year. In more than 50 countries spontaneous street alliances formed of disgruntled urban workers and left-behind rural folk.
Of course, there were dedicated reformers, ardent revolutionaries and hardened nationalists among them, too, and fearful governments tottering on the edge immediately accused them of causing all the trouble and of grasping at impossible theories of government or being manipulated by foreign enemies.
This year or 1848? The description could be used for either... the year Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels published The Communist Manifesto..
In 1848, the printing presses were the communication channels for the demands for change... the expression of anger, much as social media sites and mobile phone apps are used now to organize and spread the word...


The Emerging Risk of Virtual Societal Warfare
Social Manipulation in a Changing Information Environment

The year 2016 and beyond saw an explosion of interest in issues of disinformation, propaganda, information manipulation and fakery, “fake news,” “Truth Decay,” and related trends—a broad phenomenon that can be termed hostile social manipulation. In this study, we define this concept as the purposeful, systematic generation and dissemination of information to produce harmful social, political, and economic outcomes in a target country by affecting beliefs, attitudes, and behavior. Examples of this rising challenge include Russian efforts to influence elections and sow discord in the West through propaganda and disinformation; the role of social media platforms such as Facebook in spreading such misinformation; and burgeoning Chinese programs to shape regional narratives and gain political leverage in specific countries. U.S. intelli- gence services have concluded that Russia employed such techniques to influence the 2016 election, and Moscow continues to employ them— sometimes brazenly despite U.S. warnings—in the United States and Europe.

As significant as these developments have been, they may only represent the beginning of what an aggressive nation can accomplish with techniques and technologies designed to disrupt and shape the information environment of a target country. This report’s primary conclusion is that, as significant as social manipulation efforts have already been, the United States and other democracies have only glimpsed the tip of the iceberg of what these approaches may someday be able to achieve.

911 Terrorist World War 3 Still Expands 18 Years Later

DIGEST: US 911 expanding state terrorist world war 3
US imperialist existence, is dependent on preventing or destroying communist revolution for classless society. This requires counterrevolutionary war to create a high-tech AI world order. In it’s fascist scheme, politically and philosophically akin to Plato's "formed ideas" Republic ruled by US governors of its ‘full spectrum dominant’ world order, no revolution-threatening class of billions of working and oppressed peoples.
The hitch? 911 didn’t work long as a ‘unifier’ as US wars expanded but made-in usa al qaeda conveniently spawned another US state terrorist proxy ISIS redeployed from Iraq in 2014. [ ISIS :2012 Pentagon Document:]
So US needs to unify the world against the world’s major enemy, itself US. Which its Trump-card appears to do by threatening all:
“Trump to Pope Francis: 'ISIS wants to get you'”: "I'm gonna have to scare the pope ...The pope, I hope, can only be scared by God... if you look at what's going on, they better hope capitalism works because it's the only thing we have right now. And it's a great thing when it works properly...In our country has not been working properly"

911 didn’t work long as a ‘unifier’ when wars expanded but made-in usa al qaeda conveniently spawned another US state terrorist proxy called ISIS redeployed from Iraq in 2014.

Bahamas "Failed Cooperation"

digest: Every strategic US move —including Trump-card play -- is part of its global terror war to salvage a major chunk of its collapsed post WW2 global dictatorship. Kissinger explained US has no permanent friends or enemies, it has interests, summarizing both US imperialist white supremacist geostrategic ‘national security/ politics, and philosophical pragmatism. US manages ‘cooperative’ Bahamian domination ---now a “failed state”.

“We are the biggest victims of climate change. But how can we fight for ourselves against bigger, global countries? How do we move forward?”

Hiroshima, Nagasaki: Lies, Terror and Genocide Operating Today
The War Was Won Before Hiroshima—And the Generals Who Dropped the Bomb Knew It
“The use of this barbarous weapon…was of no material assistance in our war against Japan” —Adm. William Leahy, Truman's Chief of Staff...
The Navy Museum acknowledges what many historians have long known: It was only with the entry of the Soviet Union’s Red Army two days after the bombing of Hiroshima the Japanese moved to finally surrender....The record is quite clear: From the perspective of an overwhelming number of key contemporary leaders in the US military, the dropping of atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was not a matter of military necessity. American intelligence had broken the Japanese codes, knew the Japanese government was trying to negotiate surrender through Moscow, and had long advised that the expected early August Russian declaration of war, along with assurances that Japan’s Emperor would be allowed to stay as a powerless figurehead, would bring surrender... (digest emphasis)

 The Marshall Plan and the Shaping of American Strategy

US announces New National security Threat.

“Terrorism” is the unlawful use or threat of violence in furtherance of political, religious, ideological or social goals that is intended to (a) evoke fear, intimidate or coerce a civilian population or any segment thereof; (b) influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion.

digest note:
North America began white supremacist with genocide against the indigenous peoples and its fascist ideology grew into Manifest expansionism pn its way to conquer the world by killing its deadliest threat, revolutionary communist-led uprisings---sold with Vatican partners. Every step of the way it’s weaponized propaganda narratives had to turn the truth inside out and upside down, with higher tech means of psychological and military persuasion. As Hillary Clinton declared soft and hard power was merged for smart powers olong with literally hundreds of thousands of State Dept/ USAID and George Soros managed ‘civil society NGOs, with democracy, humanitarian assistance, Gates Foundation vaccine ‘healthcare’. (use burbank digest search for major topics, names, for ex Africa, ‘eugenics’, ‘climate’. ‘al-qaeda’., ‘Obama,’ ‘information war’,’vatican’ ‘ISIS’, etc
US counter-revolutionary terror strategy proxy narratives, murderous strategic global chaos, made-in-usa terrorist proxies from al-qaeda to GWOT and ISIS. US played Trump card to regain voter loyalty and international support, lost more ground— intensifying instead of staunching US collapsing post WW2 global dictatorship, deepening the capital crisis.
When major thinktank geostrategists started discussing future ISIS possibilities it was clear a new strategy and narrative framework was in the works..
