  Stings all the way down?



In previous item on SI, I wrote

The French terrorists were beheading real scientists in the same year when they were imposing the metric system.

I normally write "terrorists" in quotes because the modern version is always a sting or false flag. I normally write "scientists" in quotes because the modern version is nearly always criminally fraudulent.

The French were not running a sting; they were deadly serious about eliminating real science; and they coined the word terrorist to describe themselves. Primary source doesn't need quote marks.

= = = = =

Question arises: How far back in history can we find modern false flags and modern false science?

Specifically, the FBI/CIA habit of inventing organizations and movements to provide a reason for slaughter?

= = = = =

Broadly speaking, deception is the norm in Nature and honesty is the rare outlier. Posing as something else is the default and being yourself is the exception. 80-20, maybe 90-10. Everything from viruses to insects poses as something else by genetic design. Smarter critters, mammals and birds and cephalopods, pose with design plus plenty of intelligence. Cephalopods do it best.

Thus we should start with the assumption that police or armies or philosophers / scientists have always used complicated deceptions.

History is magnificently clear on armies. Organized deception from the start. Fooling the enemy is always better than fighting the enemy. But a fake regiment to convince the enemy to surrender is NOT the same thing as a fake protest to gather Deplorables for slaughter.

There's much less written history for police.

Swift tells us that the London police used stings in the modern form, and in fact Swift helped with one of those stings, writing and publishing a fake confession by a gangster the police had just caught. The confession persuaded the gangster's subthugs that they were about to be grassed, so they would do better to turn themselves in.

Fraudulent science: Swift again! Laputa. Precisely the same as modern "science", and ruining the entire culture just as modern "science" does. But in this case Swift was writing satire, only part fact. In his time the fraudulent philosophers didn't actually run things.

Swift takes us back to the early 1700s on both questions, but I don't know of any earlier records. I'll keep looking.

= = = = =

Later, another question arises. How much deception is the norm INSIDE an organism? Pathogens and parasites always use deception to gain entrance and remain inside as illegal aliens. But what about internal stings? Do neurons ever pose as muscles to form synapses that otherwise wouldn't happen? Do endocrine glands send out false messages via hormones to increase their blood budget? Is pain a sting? (Immediate answer: Yes, sometimes, and I don't mean wasps.)

At the more abstract level, the brain devotes most of its time and energy to fraud, both helpful and harmful. Our optical and auditory image of the world is fiction written by the brain. Some of this fiction is necessary to work around defects in senses or gaps in knowledge, and some of it is harmful. The most harmful part is injected by external propagandists via conversation or media.... which brings us back to FBI/CIA again, and the bringing back brings us back to the universal circle.


= = = = =

So. Deception is a constant, not a variable. Appearance of honesty may be a smarter form of deception.

Despair? No. Sweeping away the meaningless variable leaves the bigger and better variable open for examination.

If honesty and falsehood are undefinable, how do you judge a belief system or a proposition? Direction of vector. Order vs chaos. Life vs death. MAKEFORCE. If this belief system or organization PROVABLY leads to more order, more value, more life, follow it. If this belief system or cult or organization isn't MAKING more value and life, toss it out.

Location: Spokane

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
