Mark sums up perfectly who Gates and Zuckerberg are.
It helps to know that none of our great entrepreneur class of the modern era are true geniuses. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, Elon Musk, Larry Page, Sergey Brin and Mark Zuckerberg are all spook creations. Perhaps they were allowed to succeed as they did using DARPA technology without having knowledge of its origins. More likely, they are cardboard cutouts used to mask the Intel work going on behind them.
STASI was the acronym for Ministerium für Staatssicherheit, the feared East German secret police of the Cold War era, much like our own FBI*. They were limited in manpower, and technology of the time prevented them from spying on everyone, but they had a better idea anyway. If people thought they were being spied on, it would have the same effect! So STASI made a great show of spreading rumors, arresting people in public, and looking menacing. Newspapers there, just like ours under state control, would highlight its activities, thereby intimidating the East German people into submission.It worked.
That’s all that is going on with Reed, Scahill, Greenwald and Omidyar. They are reinforcing the notion that we are being spied on. That’s their job. Edward Snowden may be a real person, but he is not holed up in Russia. As soon as we were sold the idea that he was real and on the run, he probably went on to a new assignment. Like Charles Manson, he makes a public appearance now and then to seal the impression. He’s not holed up in Russia, he never had any documents, his dramatic escape through Hong Kong was scripted.
