Many of us have heard of the mysterious Wikileaks data dump known as Vault 7. This data dump revealed a variety of extremely sensitive secrets of the CIA, and could be considered the largest release of classified information in history.
We have seen many disclosures like this. However, this one in particular may show just how ready and willing many people are in the intelligence community to tell the American people the truth about the government we have been conditioned to revere.
We the American people have become overly tolerant of secrecy over the decades. This addiction of the U.S. government to conceal virtually all internal activities–all while claiming that those within government only work for the people’s best interests–got far out of hand years ago. At this point, this secrecy has reached insane levels.
The truism that America is a free country is far out of date and only holds true in an idealist sense. In fact, America has become a socialist state run by the most corrupt of oligarchs who have become professionals at pacifying the American people into believing that they are free. Every time we attempt to become more aware of the gross manipulation taking place behind the scenes, we are either distracted or pacified further.
Today we see the aftermath of this manipulation within the callous and inhumane government policies which hold no consideration for the common people, and only serve the wealthy elite. Yet instead of owning up to these gross failures over past decades, we the people are simply given a scapegoat. While all of those at the heart of these government failures point the finger at every turn, we the people are expected to believe that the current president somehow caused all of these past failures.
This covert means of governmental manipulation has been an issue for over half of a century and has been brought to our attention multiple times in the past. The late, John F. Kennedy attempted to bring this issue of secrecy to our attention in his final speech before he was murdered. Here are a few of those words from the well-known presentation on April 27, 1961 before the American Newspaper Publishers Association titled, “The President and the Press.”
The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society, and we are as a people, inherently and historically, opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths, and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweigh the dangers which are sited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in ensuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it, and there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security would be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of censorship and concealment.
For we are apposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covet means for expending its sphere of influence; on infiltration instead of invasion; on subversion instead of elections; on intimidation instead of free choice; on gorillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its decenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned; no rumor is printed; no secret is revealed.
Not long after Kennedy spoke these words, he was killed by what the corporate media claimed to be a lone gunman. However, as we know, those who openly opposed the corporate establishment have, in the past, met an early end. This has led many to believe that the so-termed, Military Industrial Complex, took steps to silence Kennedy and anyone else who spoke out against their plans of world domination.
