Technical terms and concepts. Some are Wikispooks coinages, some in common usage have substantially different meanings when used on Wikispooks in anything other than quoted form. Here The descriptions below explain the meanings of a set of important words as used on Wikispooks in their unquoted form - i.e. as distinct from their use in 3rd party produced documents. For more words and phrases, see Peter Dale Scott's Glossary of Open Politics.
                  Term                   Explanation
Anglo-US-NATOInternational community.jpgAn acronym that encapsulates the politico/cultural/ethnic make up of the elites behind the drive to a uni-polar, globalised world politics under the hegemonic control of these elites. Its anodyne, 'for public consumption' analogues are: 'International Community' and 'Community of Democracies'.
AntisemitismBW anti-semite.jpgAn etymological misnomer with no substantive meaning. In current widespread use to demonise people deemed to be threatenting to cherished Judaic official narratives and to close down rational debate. A more accurate description of those it is applied to would be "people who Jews don't like"
Arab SpringArab spring.jpgA neologism coined by western Establishments to describe a series of allegedly 'popular uprisings' that occurred throughout the Arab world from December 2010 through to around mid-2012 and which were planned triggered and orchestrated by western Deep State interests.
AuthorityAuthority.jpgIn addition to the standard meaning, "Authority" and "Authoritative" are sometimes used on WikiSpooks not as an accolade, but to suggest distrust, reflecting the fact that 'the establishment' often seeks to bolster its power through specious claims of "authority".
Christian ZionismChristian Zionism.jpgA belief among some Christians that the return of the Jews to the Holy Land, and the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, is in accordance with Biblical prophecy
Cognitive infiltrationCognitiveInfiltration.jpgA neologism coined by Cass Sunstein illustrating how to undermine theories and groups that the Establishment considers wrong or otherwise harmful
Consensus tranceConsensus trance.jpgProbably coined by Charles Tart, this phrase indicates a collective agreement not to let objective reality (such as the finite nature of fossil fuels or mendacious behaviour of particular individuals) to impinge on a shared belief system, generally more or less in agreement with the official narrative.
Conspiracy theoryAlways-you-with-that-conspiracy-stuff.jpgOriginal and obvious meaning: 'theory about conspiracy'. Declassified CIA memo# 1035-960 ("Countering Criticism of the Warren Report") reveals that it has been deliberately given associations of craziness, as though conspiracies do not happen. It is routinely used by the corporate media in their efforts to discredit suggestions that contradict official narratives.
Deep politicsDeep politics.pngA phrase coined by researcher and academic Peter Dale Scott to describe the hidden realities which underlie the small proportion of political matters which ever become public knowledge. The affairs of the deep state, some understanding of which is essential to begin to grasp the significance of deep events.
Deep stateDeep state.jpgThe deep state, state within a state, shadow government, or permanent government is a network of individuals and groups which are in actual charge of a national government. The democratically elected government works as a front, providing a level of plausible deniability and allowing the deep state to operate in secret. On matters of deep political importance, the public machinery of government is routinely subverted by agents of the deep state.
False flagFalse-flag-pic.jpgFalse flag attacks are actions carried out in ways calculated to deceive the victim as to the nature of the perpetrator. Historically, these often involved flying literal flags, e.g. from a ship, or wearing uniforms. The procedure has been used as a standard way to try to justify starting a war. Most recently, perhaps the most common false flag in Western nations have been bombs attacks blamed on Muslims designed to fuel fear and promote the "war on terror".
Holocaust DenierHolocaust denier.jpgA demonising epithet applied by The establishment to anyone who publicly questions any of the three fundamental tenets of 'The Holocaust'
JewStar of David.pngA person who self-identifies as Jewish or who is ethnically Jewish according to the definitions used in the "Laws of return" of the State of Israel
LGBTLGBT.jpegLesbian Gay Bi-sexual Trans-gender
Lone nutLee Harvey Oswald mugshot.jpg'Lone nuts' feature repeatedly in official narratives of assassinations. The rapid placing of blame provides closure to what might otherwise result in inconvenient and potentially damaging investigation of deeper forces at work, while providing a chance to stir up strife by inciting factionalism. The 'nut' aspect means that a rational explanation is not required, while the 'lone' aspect conveniently explains the lack of any supporting documentary evidence.
Medical Mafiaa coloquialism denoting the nexus of people and organisations - both commercial and statutory that cooperate to enforce the stablished orthodoxies of the medical establishment.
National securityNational security.jpgLike the idea of 'Patriotism', the notion of 'National Security' is designed to bind all members of a society together. It evokes a psychological frame for the abdication of personal responsibility to the nation state. In the 21st century, the concept is repeated like a mantra in en effort to justify ever more opaqueness in the workings of government.
Official narrative911report cover HIGHRES.pngThe "Official Narrative" is the cover story of "the powers that be". On WikiSpooks this mean the story intended for citizens of the so-called 'Western Democracies'. This could be the truth, but the term is usually used for cases in which it is a veil over something more sinister.
Post-truthPost-truth applies to statements, situations and arguments where facts are subordinated or subjected to obfuscation in pursuit of desired intepretations/outcomes.
SpookSpy-512.pngUsed on Wikispooks as a colloquial term for spy but with wider connotations encompassing people whose primary occupation may be in any area of industry, commerce, politics, the media etc., but who also acts as an agent/informant of the secret intelligence services or the security services generally.
The EstablishmentO-OWEN-facebook.jpgThe Establishment is used in a rather general way on WikiSpooks to refer to the (often deliberately unclear) set of relationships, figures and organisations which make up the socio political status quo. The Establishment's official (for public consumption) opinion is, by definition, the "official narrative"
The HolocaustIn its capitalised form "The Holocaust" refers in the Western world to the treatment of the Jewish populations of Germany and German occupied territories during WW2 (1939-45). Its use in this format stems from about the mid-1960's.
TätervolkGerman word meaning 'Perpetrator people' and applied by Orthodox Judaism to the alledged collective guilt of Germans as a race of people for the events of World War II - with particular emphasis on The Holocaust
Zionist Occupied GovernmentA government which is heavily influenced by the Zionist world view. It can also denote Jewish membership of a government which is grossly out of proportion to the Jewish population of the country as a whole.

Addicted to Distraction: Psychological consequences of the Mass MediaA complete online book by Bruce G Charlton2014, University of Buckingham Press, UKWhat follows is the corrected draft version of this book, which differs in a few details from the paper/ Kindle published version. It is about 26,000 words - so for convenient reading I would recommend that you should copy and paste it into a word-processing file that can be printed-out. Available to download on Amazon Kindleamazon.co.uk - http://tinyurl.com/kcamlqramazon.com - http://tinyurl.com/oc5pervEndorsements:In this groundbreaking study, Bruce Charlton sheds brilliant light on fundamental features of our current situation. He develops Marshall McLuhan's insight that "the medium is the message" into a deeply illuminating account of the mass media as a self-sustaining techno-cultural system that absorbs the whole of human life into a virtual world of willfulness and unreality. Like Plato in his Myth of the Cave, he calls for each of us to turn away from flickering images and toward realities. We need to heed that call. --James Kalb: author of The Tyranny of Liberalism and Against Inclusiveness
Addicted to Distraction by Bruce G Charlton is a brilliant, pithy, and incisive analysis and condemnation of the modern mass media and its semipurposeful agenda of permanent revolution, permanent hysteria, and permanent chaos. His comments are as cutting as the scalpel of a surgeon performing an autopsy, and his insights a bright and clear as the merciless lights in an operating theater. Can a fish drown? Can it even notice the waters in which it lives and moves? No more than can we notice the totalitarian relativism of the modern mass media. The Mass Media is a roaring, grinding attention-grabbing machine which operates with no set purpose; except the purpose to subvert, uncreate, mock and destroy. It does not matter what the media destroys. Pointless subversion is the point of the media, and the medium is the message. By all means read and understand this book ... and then go out by yourself into the calm and silent wilderness for a year. --John C Wright, author and Nebula Award finalist

Thought Prison - The fundamental nature of Political Correctness

Epigraph

This book is intended for normal, mainstream, secular, modern, disaffected and alienated intellectuals; those who are complicit in political correctness (as are all intellectuals) but who are (when not distracted, drugged or dreaming) in a state of despair.

This book will, I hope, help such people to understand their condition, and present the likely choices. It will not help them to save their world (too late for that) but it may help them to save their souls.

Note: Why I use the term Political Correctness, instead of Liberalism or Socialism?
The reasons include:
1. The confusion over what 'liberalism' means - to some a free marketeer, to others a socialist. My definition of political correctness is broad and includes most mainstream conservatives, libertarians and anarchists; who are nowadays all significantly PC. 
2. Differences in usage between the UK and US: in the UK the Liberals are a strange mixture of business- and farming-friendly Centrists with pacifist Leftists of an upper middle class type; in the US Liberals are the furthest Left of mainstream political ideologies.
3. That although PC clearly evolved from (what is in the US) called liberalism, PC is the outcome of a distinctive 'turn' in Leftist politics, which became obvious in the mid-1960s. In its striking, explicit, surface features PC is something new under the sun, never before seen in history.
4. Leftist political groups have, over the years, called themselves Communist, Socialist, Social Democrat, Liberal Democrat, Democrat and various other names – but none of these have become dominant, and none are fully inclusive of Leftism.
5. The dawning realization that the phenomena collected together under the jokey term 'political correctness' was a vastly more robust and malignant thing than I had ever imagined.
