The problem with secret government is that to remain secret, it cannot involve too many people who are aware of the situation. The more that become
involved, the greater the chance that some of them who retain some sense of honor might defect. An occasional defector can be disabled, killed or
discredited, but a flood of them could be disastrous. That is what brought down the Bolshevik regime in the Soviet Union.
Shadow control therefore consists largely of the placement of shadow agents in key positions in all of the institutions that are to be controlled.
Since they cannot reveal their true role, they are also somewhat constrained in the actions they can take. What they do has to fit their jobs and not
conflict in an obvious way with the mission of the organization, even if they head it. Some of the main targeted institutions are the following:
(1) Top and key lower positions in the executive, legislative, and judicial branches. Key judges, especially presiding judges who assign cases.
(2) Staff positions under the top positions, such as the congressional staff members who really run Congress.
(3) Intelligence agencies. The CIA, NSA and various military intelligence divisions. Among their functions are death squads that eliminate troublesome
persons, although they usually avoid doing that to more prominent ones. They also have developed mind control techniques that can be used to mess up
the minds of people they want to discredit or disable. Actually, almost every department of government has an intelligence function, and that function
is the Shadow Government's main point of control of the department.
(4) Military organizations, law enforcement, and taxing agencies, especially the IRS. Not only federal, but also state and local, at least in the
major cities. The IRS and other agencies are used to harass persons considered troublesome, and sometimes to prosecute them on trumped up charges, in
which evidence is planted or manufactured and government witnesses perjure themselves.
(5) Major banks, insurance companies, pension funds, holding companies, utilities, public authorities, contractors, manufacturers, distributors,
transport firms, security services, credit reporting services. Forbidden by law from maintaining dossiers on citizens not the subject of criminal
investigation, the agencies get around the restriction by using contractors to maintain the data for them, and have amazingly detailed data on almost
everyone. When you hire one of the major security services, you are turning over the keys to your premises to the shadow government.
(6) Major media. Newspapers, magazines, television and radio stations. Together, they control the National Election Service, which in turn controls
the outcome of computerized elections. They suppress coverage of certain subjects, and are the channel for the Shadow Government's propaganda and
disinformation campaigns. A major part of the budget of the CIA is for film and video production. They aren't making training films.
(7) Communications networks. Telephone, telegraph, cable and satellite. The Shadow Government can bug any communication they wish, without bothering
with a court order, and they regularly monitor dissidents and other key figures. Major holes in their control here are the Internet and public-key
encryption, which the Shadow Government is trying to suppress. Although the Internet can be monitored, it cannot be effectively controlled, and it is
emerging as a major threat to Shadow control.
(8) Organized crime. Despite occasional convictions, they are now mostly treated as a profit center and as the executors of the dirty jobs. They are
also the providers of vices for the corrupt members of government, which vices are also used to blackmail and control people.
(9) Education. Universities and public education. Universities are the least effectively controlled components, but still important, largely for
recruitment. Main aim here is to divert student activists into unproductive channels, or to get students so involved in careerism that they ignore the
(10) Civic, political, and labor organizations. The two major political parties. Political action committees. League of Women Voters. Trade and
professional associations, such as the American Bar Association and the American Medical Association. Labor unions.
(11) International organizations. The United Nations, NATO, the IMF. Multinational corporations.
(12) Governmental and nongovernmental institutions of other countries. We are doing many of the same things there that are being done in the United
States, especially in the more advanced countries.
