Disobedient Subjects

Every organization will seek to preserve its own existence. To be surprised about the “Vault 7” revelations is to not understand that basic aspect of reality. “Governments” are ruling classes. The primary threat to any ruling class is the possibility that some of its victims will disobey and resist. No, the CIA doesn’t give a crap about someone in a cave in Afghanistan. If you’re an American, they only care whether you–one of their human livestock–might be thinking of not bowing and obeying anymore.

Would you be shocked to find out that a slave owner would spy on his slaves, to make sure they’re not getting uppity? Of course not. So why the hell would you be surprised to learn that rulers spy on their subjects? You have to be incredibly gullible to actually believe that the CIA, working in secret via secret methods with secret funding, does what it does for your benefit. The enemy of every “government”–and therefore the primary reason for all of their spies and thugs–is a potentially disobedient subject.
