The global awakening to the ubiquity of false-flag terrorism is a Copernican revolution that overturns the old paradigms about the way societies are governed.

This “great awakening” offers us the chance to overthrow the old paradigm of rule by fear, and to work for a better world – a world of fearless people ruled by wisdom and compassion.”

A friend called up our local radio station yesterday to complain: One of the radio hosts was supporting the official story of the Boston bombings, and blaming “radical Muslims from Chechnya.” The receptionist was shocked. “Did our host really say that? That’s so crazy. Everyone knows it was a false-flag attack.”


The incident illustrates the schizoid nature of Americans’ response to the Boston bombings. Increasingly, “everyone knows” it was a false-flag attack - including the ordinary people who work at radio and TV stations. But the powerful few who control the broadcast licenses, and print the news on dead trees, will be the last to admit it. At this point, the false-flag meme is just starting to enter the mainstream media.

As it does, the whole notion of “terrorism” is being re-thought.

The received notion of “terrorism” is that anti-government radicals are supposedly attacking civilians. But wait a minute - why would they do that? Why wouldn’t they just attack the government - especially the government officials, government-owning fat-cats and government-aiding media moguls who are the real objects of their hatred?

A recent headline screamed: Karl Rove Heckled Throughout Speech In Massachusetts, Called Murderer, Terrorist. Run “Karl Rove heckled” through a search engine and you’ll find many more examples.

If there were any real anti-government “terrorists,” Karl Rove would have been dead a long time ago.

For better or worse, there are very few actual anti-government terrorists. Virtually all terrorism is committed by governments.

Let’s take this from the top and define our terms. “Terrorism” means “using violence against civilians to create fear for political purposes.”

Who does that? Who has the motivation to do it?

Only governments.

It is well-known that governments terrorize the citizens of countries they invade and occupy. The US, for example, murdered many millions of Vietnamese citizens in a doomed attempt to terrorize them into submission. Ditto for Indonesia, Iraq, Afghanistan, and many other places. This is real terrorism - terrorism on a massive, genocidal scale.

It is less well-known that the very same governments also terrorize their own citizens - more subtly, and on a smaller scale.

In the US, militarized police forces terrorize African-American communities. Almost every day, an African-American is extra-judicially executed by police.

White Americans are terrorized in sneakier and less brutal fashion: They are fed a diet of violence and fear-mongering propaganda by the media. Those who break out of the fear bubble, and go to Occupy demonstrations, may have their skulls smashed by police billy clubs.

As the BBC documentary The Power of Nightmares explains, Western governments once ruled through fear, peppered by sprinkles of hope. Now that there is no longer any hope for Western economies, these governments rule almost entirely through fear. The Power of Nightmares documents the fact that the whole concept of the “terrorist threat” was invented out of whole cloth by Western governments: there is no actual group called al-Qaeda, and no such thing as any significant anti-government terrorism.

“Al-Qaeda” is the name of a ragged hodge-podge of dupes and mercenaries. They terrorize Syrians on behalf of the US and Israeli governments. And they terrorize Americans on behalf of the US and Israeli governments.

False-flag terrorism is designed to make citizens willingly surrender their liberty, their money, their power, and even their children’s lives.

The Boston Marathon bombing appears to have been yet another false-flag attack. The government tells us that there were no terror drills that day. But eyewitness reports, and a Boston Globe twitter feed about police exploding a bomb at the library, prove the government is lying. Why would they lie and deny the obvious fact that terror drills coincided with the actual bombing?

And what about the paramilitary team captured in photographs of the bombing? Men from the DHS-linked mercenary firm Craft International, sporting caps with the distinctive Craft skull logo, were photographed wearing large black backpacks like those that held the bombs. The photos place members of this paramilitary team at the bomb locations just moments before the attacks. Other photos show them rendezvousing after the operation.

The entire family of the surviving accused bomber, Dzhokar Tsarnaev, has been screaming “false flag” from the rooftops. Their mother says FBI agents “were controlling every step” her sons took, and called the event a set-up. Their father says “Somebody clearly framed them.” Their aunt pointed out that Chechens have been set up as patsies in other false-flag terror events, adding “I don’t trust (the) FBI. I don’t trust any agencies.”

And it isn’t just the Tsarnaev family. Everyone who knows the Tsarnaev brothers agrees. As Steve Watson reported for Infowars.com, “People who know Dzhokar Tsarnaev say it is impossible that he would commit an act of terror.”

Even the surviving suspect himself appears to be aware of the ubiquity of false-flag attacks. According to reports, his Twitter feed included: “Idk why it’s hard for many of you to accept that 9/11 was an inside job.”

If he still had access to his Twitter account, he would be tweeting: “Idk why it’s hard for many of you to accept that the Boston bombings were also an inside job.”

But more and more people ARE accepting that 9/11, and most other seemingly senseless attacks against civilians - including the Boston Marathon bombings - are inside jobs.

The global awakening to the ubiquity of false-flag terrorism is a Copernican revolution that overturns the old paradigms about the way societies are governed.

This “great awakening” offers us the chance to overthrow the old paradigm of rule by fear, and to work for a better world - a world of fearless people ruled by wisdom and compassion.
