The Power Elite
False Flag Terrorism & 9/11
Hidden Knowledge Course: Lesson Five
There is no act too small, no act too bold. The history of social change is the history of millions of actions, small and large, coming together at points in history and creating a power that governments cannot suppress. ~ Howard Zinn, historian and author
Are you ready to dive deeper? For those of you who were not aware of some of the hidden manipulations going on in our world before starting this course, this lesson may be challenging. Move through the lesson at whatever pace feels best for you. Though some of the information may be disturbing, many believe it is essential to at least be aware of these things in order to make a real difference in our world.
False Flag Operations
This lesson is titled "The Power Elite, False Flag Terrorism, and 9/11." For those unfamiliar with the term false flag terrorism, here is a definition from Wikipedia:
"False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as if they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of a country other than one's own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations, and have been used in peace-time; for example, during Italy's strategy of tension."
In other words, when a government or other entity secretly pretends to be it's own enemy and launches an attack against itself, this is called a false flag operation. This is done to fool unsuspecting people into believing that there is a greater threat than actually exists, and to manipulate the public into supporting war agendas.

The Power Elite
The power elite consists of those with tremendous amounts of both wealth and power in our world. Like any group, the power elite has both individuals and factions which are inclined to promote their own self-serving interests, and those who are more interested in serving the greater good.
Many scholars who have spent considerable time studying this group have found that there are factions within this elite group which at times fight against each other, while at other times they work together for common goals. Many (but certainly not all) of these elite believe that because of their intelligence and wealth, they deserve to have inordinate amounts of power and influence on global politics.
To get a brief, representative picture of the power elite and some of their secret societies as reported in numerous major media articles, please read through at least the first six to eight of the 20 news article summaries at the link below:
www.WantToKnow.info/secretsocieties... - News articles on secret societies
Members of the power elite generally do all they can to keep their existence and their activities secret, knowing that if people find out about them and their immense power, they will demand change. If you find yourself having negative thoughts about these people, remember that every member of the power elite and these secret societies was once an small child wanting only to love and be loved.
In exploring this provocative issue, it is vitally important that we don't fall into "us vs. them" thinking which only leads to more polarization and conflict. This information is provided knowing that through better understanding all that is happening, we can more effectively make a difference.
For an important example of a false flag operation that never happened, yet that nevertheless clearly shows how global politics can be manipulated, please read about Operation Northwoods through the declassified U.S. government documents released on this operation at the link below:
www.WantToKnow.info/010501operationnorth... - Operation Northwoods
The only reason these documents were released by the U.S. government is that the operation was never carried out. If Operation Northwoods had been carried out, the documents would never have been released. Those involved would have invoked "national security" to keep them secret. There are laws which allow plans actually put into operation which allegedly affect national security to remain classified indefinitely.
The important question here is who determines what falls under the category of national security, and what are their motives? Key members of the power elite are often involved in developing these false flag operations and have incredible influence over which documents are kept secret from the public.
Something to remember in dealing with false flag operations is that governments are massive bureaucracies and thus very inefficient in general and incapable of carrying out detailed secret plans. However, the military and intelligence branches of government are rigid hierarchies in which everyone knows their position. Superiors who give commands are very rarely questioned. Just the words "Yes, sir" bring up images of a "good soldier" in the military.
It is through use of the highly organized military and intelligence services that the power elite, working together with key allies in government and the media, are able to carry out major false flag operations. The Northwoods documents, for example, state "responsibility for both overt and covert military operations [will] be assigned the Joint Chiefs of Staff," showing that very few even in the military would know how the public was being deceived.
Having an inefficient, at times bumbling government bureaucracy actually makes it easier for the elite to manipulate politicians and laws. And should anyone claim that the government is carrying out a false flag operation or some kind of conspiracy, the power elite and their media baron buddies disingenuously point out how ridiculous such claims are when government is so inefficient.
Meanwhile the military and intelligence services are not only used to promote these operations, they also promulgate sophisticated disinformation to lead astray any who might investigate the secret manipulations. False flag operations give the pretext for war needed by the elite to maintain their power and rake in the huge profits and power that war brings them.
In societies with strong power elites, the powerholders' power is dependent on the co-operation, acquiescence, and tacit support of the great majority of common citizens. ~ Bill Moyer
