THE SECRECY GAME by J.E. Ante
Men can convince other men to do anything with the right motivation and a convincing story. This is the greatest tool of men in power — the convincing story. So silver tongued devils inhabit the halls of power and motivate their closest people to do as they wish. Just as Huck Finn could get others to do his work with a convincing and outrageous story men of power do the same.
Secrecy is necessary for men of power because their convincing stories are often totally false. But a convincing story only has to be convincing not the truth to do its work and to motivate the underlings. But other men of power are not so easily fooled so actual props and plans and actions must sometimes be laid to convince them.
The great men of power do not usually use deception but use rather the lack of the whole truth to bend others to their will. But the greatest men of power will actually use the truth because it has great power in the telling. But few men of power have the courage to speak it for they do not wish to be so honest and a target of all who might oppose them.
False flag military operations have been the means to control populations and gain political support for centuries and since the dawn of man. Nothing better can rally the people around a leader than a war or the threat of war. For the people need a strong man to lead the way in times of war. And loyalty of the people in times of war comes into questions so everyone must proclaim their displeasure with the new enemy or be labeled a sympathizer or worst a possible enemy among them.
So simply by creating war or simply declaring a possible foe’s actions questionable a political leader can become a great leader of his people. He leads the way by declaring high moral ground and declaring his foe a lesser person for their views or questionable actions. And then his foe does the very same and he also becomes a great leader of his people protecting their virtue with words and deeds.
So men can lead other men to war for simple power, money, glory, and many other selfish reasons all because other men believe his convincing stories. Or the convincing stories of his many press or his many agents who say he speaks wisely. But secrecy is always necessary for the ruse of the convincing story for the truth is less arousing and emotional. It is only the truth.
The agents of men of power are many but they are often given separate convincing stories to believe and motivate them. They are honored to be within the inner circle of power and so they wish to believe in their own convincing story no matter how unlikely it seems. The same techniques of deception is used on these men to keep them motivated and working for the men in power. Even elaborate deceptions can be played upon them to convince them of their own convincing stories. And others will repeat this same story because others whom they trust have spoken it to them.
A very few men may know the actual truth but these are specially selected and tested mercenaries who can be bought and have no moral fiber or they have a taste for blood and violence. So they are known quantities and easily used to play the games of secrecy and behind the scenes manipulation for their masters. But the majority of men have been lead to participate in secret and immoral acts by small steps until they no longer have the will and the courage to refuse. They have been tricked and seduced by power, money, and trappings of power or simply by their own convincing story.
There is little hope for the mercenary of low moral fiber but the moral man must learn to see danger of following a leader of questionable means and methods. For in time a line is crossed with little fanfare and it becomes ever more difficult to turn back. So for those who wish to be true to themselves there is only one path — to simply say no and go another way. End by whatever means you can muster and leave before you become the very thing you are told you are fighting. Employ your talents, energy, and wisdom to morally fruitful endeavors before you loose the courage to resist and become that which you are not. Each individual must choose their futures daily. Choose wisely or you may be the men of power one day that the people learn to hate and fear.
