I meant to write something substantial and original on this matter but it becomes more and more unlikely I ever will, so here’s an interesting pov i’d like to share with you:
“In the 21st century, hearts and minds/propaganda/psyops warfare is more critical to imperialist domination than killing people with conventional weapons. The theatre of operations is not in the deserts of Iraq or the mountains of Afghanistan, it is in the homes of ordinary people. So perhaps current Control System self-harming could be correlated with the 1898 sinking of the USS Maine, the 1933 burning of the German Parliament building, or the 2001 destruction of the World Trade Center. If so, the Wikileaks debacle signals an imminent, coordinated shift in the power dynamic; a changing of the colours and a handing over of the imperial baton.”
at that time the Reichstagsbrand indeed was on my mind but because of the terror-threat in germany…
and looking at it from the perspective of the “Arab revolution” it indeed seems to have been a sign of a “shift in the power dynamic” and “handing over the imperial button”!
