Assange and Anonymous As Elite Helpers?
Anonymous Supposedly Plans to "Kill" the Internet on March 31 ... Planned DDOS campaign against DNS is meant to highlight piracy legislation issues. Al Gore may have finally met his match. While members of Anonymous aren't planning on inventing the internet, they are planning on destroying it – supposedly ... The DDOS campaign is expected to target the world's 13 domain name servers (DNSs), that allow the public to use the internet by translating human legible text-string URLs into machine-readable IP addresses. If the attack indeed materializes and if the DNS servers are all taken down, the Mayan apocalypse could come early -- the internet could blink offline. – DailyTech
Dominant Social Theme: We're fighting against the power!
Free-Market Analysis: Julian Assange wants to run for public office in Australia, his home country, and Anonymous wants to destroy the Internet, temporarily anyway. We are not surprised. Once more, it would seem, Anonymous is acting as a friend of the powers-that-be. More toward the bottom of the article.
Some background ... The Internet is like the Gutenberg Press before it. During the era of the Gutenberg Press, the social order was overturned. The Renaissance, Reformation and Enlightenment rolled like waves over Europe and America.
While history – real history – is admittedly a foggy occupation, it would seem that in the modern era, history is shaped by the competing forces of elite control and communication technology. When the Gutenberg Press came along, it had an explosive impact on the Way the World Worked.
People read books and the result was the reestablishment of logic and science – and a growing discontent with the Catholic Church, which was evidently and obviously misrepresenting the Bible.
The elites of the day fought back by trying to get ahead of public discontent. Instead of letting the Gutenberg Press take its course, the elites apparently supported the inevitable social upheaval by apparently funding both Martin Luther and John Calvin.
These two religious visionaries helped split up the Roman Catholic Church, which was apparently to the advantage of some controlling elites. But in the end, it seems obvious that the elites could not entirely control the forces that the Gutenberg Press had unleashed.
The elites of the day apparently encouraged war and social chaos. They seem to have helped fund Oliver Cromwell, who overthrew England's royal system, and tried to use people's burgeoning discontent to shape society in a certain way.
We know they were not entirely successful because of the creation of first the US confederation and then the United States of America. It would take several wars over nearly 150 years to even begin to turn the tide against freedom and individual human action.
The 20th century was the apogee of the modern elite's success. Using dominant social themes, the power elite of the modern era was able to frighten citizens in the West into giving up power and wealth to globalist facilities. The elites dream of global government and a global money.
But as what we call the Internet Reformation proceeds apace, the ability of the elites to counteract it is looking as hopeless now as back when the Gutenberg Press was being confronted and its manifestations manipulated.
Human beings – naked apes – tend to use tools to their fullest extent over time. Why wouldn't this historical trait hold true as well for the Internet?
In the 21st century, the Internet has done tremendous damage to elite memes of social control. Everything from global warming to the so-called war on terror to the real, tested efficacy of vaccines has come under attack.
By allowing people to read source material for themselves, the Internet has eviscerated many of the controlling myths of the day in much the same manner as the Gutenberg Press exploded myths propounded by the Roman Catholic Church some 500 years ago.
And we think we can see the same power elite manipulations today as then. War, economic upheaval and outright repression are the chosen tools of power elite pushback. But still the Internet Reformation rolls on, in our view.
The result is a massive subterranean conflict. In order to martial support for their perspectives, the elites have, in our view, begun cultivating a number of false flag facilities. Among the most prominent recent ones may be Julian Assange and Anonymous.
The parallels to Luther and Calvin would seem somewhat clear. The idea is to create a controlled opposition that rolls back the truth-telling of the Internet by confusing the larger message.
When the Assange/WikiLeaks phenomenon first began we wrote a series of fictional stories that might have applied to him, indicating the possibility he was part of a controlled opposition. The same goes for Anonymous. The first story was "Comes a Blond Stranger," followed by some further commentary in "Truth About WikiLeaks?"
We also predicted that Assange would run for public office. We did this by using the career of other modern "controlled opposition" figures as a blueprint. Sure enough, we now read the following, courtesy of InfoWars:
Wikileaks founder and accused sex offender Julian Assange wants to turn his notoriety into a job with the Australian government. He has announced he will run for the Australian senate as a "libertarian."
Assange says the United States is in "serious decline" and will lose its super power status over the next few years. In response, Assange believes the average Australian should be taxed more and the money spent on defense and intelligence.
He says his political model is Malcolm Fraser, the former Australian prime minister who sold himself as a free market Thatcherite but instead increased government taxes and spending. He supported U.S. foreign policy and Indonesia's annexation and occupation of East Timor which led to over 100,000 deaths.
Assange's political philosophy seems to be based on the un-libertarian concept of government force, although he told The Age he is a defender of liberty and "the right of citizens... to live lives free from state interference."
Meanwhile, Anonymous continues to pursue what we consider somewhat doubtful protests. In fact, if Anonymous DOES succeed in destabilizing the Internet, it will likely only upset people.
It won't necessarily make them reflect on the world's growing authoritarianism. It may make them look with more skepticism at the alternative media movement that Anonymous is supposedly aligned with.
More ominously, even, it will feed into the elite meme that the Internet is a dangerous and unpredictable place, one that needs to be rigorously controlled and scrutinized. Anonymous, within this context, has just reaffirmed its place as a great argument for SOPA and increased Internet censorship generally. Coincidence?
Well ... who actually knows what Anonymous is? There have been allegations all along that the group was in a sense a controlled opposition because its targets were almost invariably private enterprise. And recently, it was revealed that the FBI had "turned" one of its leaders, who is now facing a trial and jail.
Ironically, Anonymous plans its project to as a PROTEST of SOPA! Here's how the group puts it: "To protest SOPA, Wallstreet, our irresponsible leaders and the beloved bankers who are starving the world for their own selfish needs out of sheer sadistic fun, On March 31, anonymous will shut the Internet down."
Will Assange win election to the Senate? Will Anonymous shut down the Internet? We submit the bigger question is: Who is actually in charge and why are they making the moves they are making? The elite uses dominant social themes – false-flag promotions – to manipulate people into going along with global government. The Internet Reformation stands athwart that.
Conclusion: Each individual must make up his or her mind as to the validity of this paradigm and all the conclusions that flow out of accepting such a vision or rejecting it. Assange and Anonymous will then be seen within the context of these perceptions – for better or worse.

I used to be more worried about censorship of the internet. But, to spin off the DB's idea, technology is a process, not an episode. The Horses of Wireless communication, encryption, mega-storage, massive computer processing, etc., have left the barn. Look at the recent attack on Kim Dotcom. The result of that will not achieve the elites hope that people will give in to censorship. On the contrary, alternatives like Tor, Darknet, Silkroad, Hushmail, Truecrypt will seem all the more attractive.
To quote from Star Wars, "The more you squeeze, the more they will slip through your fingers"!

Back in 2009, Homeland Security announced it was looking for hackers. "General Dynamics Information Technology put out an ad last month on behalf of the Homeland Security Department seeking someone who could "think like the bad guy." Applicants, it said, must understand hackers' tools and tactics and be able to analyze Internet traffic and identify vulnerabilities in the federal systems. And in the Pentagon's budget request submitted last week, Defense Secretary Robert Gates hung out his own help-wanted sign, saying the Pentagon will increase the number of cyber experts it can train each year from 80 to 250 by 2011."

I also find it perhaps more than coincidence that the 2012 FEMA Nat'l Level Exercise centers around cyber-terrorism. "Cyber Incident Management/Virtual Effects: This exercise will examine the coordination and communication processes between public and private stakeholders in response to a significant cyber incident. This will include examining challenges related to managing a cyber event with national security implications." and "NLE Capstone/Cyber Physical Effects: This functional exercise will examine challenges related to managing a cyber event with physical consequences and national security implications."

FedBizOpps is even in on it with a solicitation of bids for "vendor" for NLE 2012. More details on their site: Click to view link
Could there be a connection?
Personally, I think that Anonymous, Assange, the Occupy Movement, Hillary's movement and the feds are all intertwined and may lead to a false flag that will lead to the use of the new EO 13603 (Nat'l Defense Resources Preparedness) to play out. Time will tell.

"They" finally gained control via the District of Columbia's "Organic Act of 1871" and formed the corporate United States and overlaid the organic Constitution for the United States of America with their own identical corporate constitution.

Please use Critical Thinking when dealing with the Reformation.
Both Luther & Calvin were in the pockets of the ruling classes.
When the Peasants' War broke out in 1524, Luther agreed that the peasants had legitimate grievances, and blamed the authorities for the rebellion. However, at the same time he claimed that the revolt was ungodly, and against the Gospel. To the great disappointment of many commoners, Luther repeatedly refused to side with the rebels despite their legitimate grievances. By 1525, Luther had realized that if the peasants revolt was to succeed, his reformation would fail, so to ensure the survival of Lutheranism, he sacrificed the needs of the peasants. He had not attacked the power of the church (clerical abuses and Church doctrine) in order to redistribute power to the common man. It is likely for this reason that Luther chose to support the authority of princes for the rest of his life. By putting control of the reform into the hands of the Princes who were used to being subservient to the power of the Roman Catholic church, Luther created strong allies who saw this as extension of their power.
And we know what happened to Servetus.
A lot of people foolishly think Luther nailed his 95 thesis on the church door in protest, when in FACT it was the NOTICE BOARD. There was to be a debate on these thesis during that week, but someone got his hands on it & copied it & spread it all over Europe. In a letter to a friend, Luther said his thesis was not finished & that he would have taken one or two of them out, before going to the publisher with it.

Been studying have you Bobby7? This is much better written than usual. Maybe there are two Bobby7s?
In any event your comments beg the point. Are you implying that the Renaissance, Reformation, founding of the New World and even the Enlightenment were nothing more than elite manipulations. We have a hard time with that one. The ramifications of the Gutenberg Press were varied and powerful. What you describe as elite manipulations were in part REACTIVE. And we can see that again, today, from our ringside seats.

In Genesis 47:26 we read,
26 So Joseph made a law at that time in the land, and that law continues today. The law says that one-fifth of everything from the land belongs to the Pharaoh who owns all the land. The only land he does not own is the land of the priests.
Here we see the clergy & the ruling powers are joined at the hip and its the workers who are exploited. Joseph was supposed to have been guided by YHWH, but you can scrub that now. This is all about CONTROL! Its now known that the priests of Midian worshiped VOLCANOES.When you read the Book of Exodus again, keep this in mind. Its possible that the god of the Jews, Christians & Muslims was a VOLCANO on Mount Sinai.
I think we need to go back to the Drawing Board again!

The Australian Greens Party leader Senator Bob Brown admitted on record that the 'world should be ruled by a new global parliament under the auspices of the United Nations'. He then went onto say 'Australia should to take the lead in establishing a global parliament to govern issues such as nuclear proliferation, international financial transactions and poverty'

And before the Guttenberg press the move to write down words on paper or papyrus in Ancient times instead of itching hieroglyphics on clumsy large stoney slabs also brought anxiety to the Elites of the day. The disemination of informations to the "masses" of the times, as with the current Internet Reformation, will always threaten those that are and wish to control societies.
Controlling the Internet? We'll see, perhaps! Don't anyone hold their breath!

DB: "Who is actually in charge and why are they making the moves they are making? The elite uses dominant social themes - false-flag promotions - to manipulate people into going along with global government."
You answered you own question. Since THEY seek to manipulate "we, the people", to support THEM, that is who is REALLY in charge.
We just have to exercise a little critical THINKING to understand why this is so, has always been so and, will remain so, independent of contrary OPINIONS or force applied:

Don't know about anyone else, but, to me, elite terror, desperation, ill thought out "damage control" and sheer panic is a very palpatable thing. Plus, the evidence of former rationalizers "jumping ship" appears to be on the cusp of an exponential taking off to a flood.
The fact that elites do not have enough fingers to plug the dike against freedom, plus the risk to pawns (making them very expensive to bribe and cautious) whom may continue supporting elites and their endeavors appears unstoppable.
Not only are we on the cusp of the majority realizing the "emperor has no clothes", but the emperor is also surrounded by ferel wolves seeking to feed from his carcass.
We last saw this dynamic of "truth setting free" in the Renaissence. The same thing is happening now, on steroids due to a far greater percentage of the population being educated, especially scientifically, plus light speed communication and near instantaneous information indexing, cross referencing and location of information.
Intelligence is mainly the "ability to make connections" and compare differences regarding information presented and what the facts state, the metric of truth. Thanks to the internet, we can do this thousands of times faster and more effectively than our freedom achieving ancestors. There is absolutely zero physical possibility of elites generating lies faster than they can be refuted. Elites and predators in general ARE TOAST.

The DB always draws an interesting parallel between the Reformation in Europe and today's Internet era.
In the comments on Luther and Calvin above, I'm not sure whether the DB is intimating that those men were actually knowingly part of the elite's plan or whether both men were acting in good conscience and indeed walking a very difficult road according to their convictions.
In the latter case the elite may merely have cottoned on to the turning tide to their advantage. This is my belief. It must be remembered that although these two men are widely remembered, there were just two of many Reformers.
Many of these people were martyred at the bloodied hands of Rome. Luther and Calvin were two who managed to escape this, though I do believe that if they had been faced with the choice of recantation or the flames they would not have recanted.

We do not know to what degree Luther and Calvin were in a knowing conspiracy. And we agree with you that the schism extended well beyond Calvin and Luther and was certainly organic.
