Official Secrets

Nowhere on the face of this planet Earth could any professional person get away with the obscurant misuse of language as is the common parlance of the global political class now, in 2020AD.

Politicians sit in legislative debating chambers the world over setting the linguistic and legal contractual boundaries for all professions to be able to conduct their business honourably.

Yet in their own utterances to the General Public to whom they feign their regular submission their words bend and stretch in their meaning to the point of rendering their being politicians as a parody of that supposed height of semantic functionality.

How does this happen?

It happens because of the power of a secret.

Implicit in every political communication is the message that “if you knew what we know then you would understand why we have to act and speak as we do and we have to bear this rôle on your behalf to keep you safe.”

Imagine if any other profession misused language in the way that politicians regularly do? Even within the comedy renditions of such internal behaviour amongst themselves as in “Yes Minister”, the condition of life mimicking art is now almost complete as centralised government pretend to give power to people whilst actually taking power away from people.

This Gordian Knot of international leaders mistrusting each other who in turn mistrust their own local leaders who in turn mistrust the ordinary people has become the actual state of democracy, nowhere near the government of the people by the people, a definition used now merely anaesthetically to take away the pain of the 24/7 news channels.

The way to cut this Gordian Knot is to look to the Source of all Secrets.

As for the place of the action and station of the ruhul quds (the Holy Spirit), it is the Sirr (secret). The nature of this spirit is told in the following hadith:

“The human being is My secret and I am his.” [I am hidden in the human being and he is hidden in Me]

Masters of Sufism – Abdul Qadir Geylani


So, the powerful allure of the secret is taken from the very template of our arriving into existence in the first place. We are hard wired to submit to this notion of the singular secret. It is because of this that the current stock of so called leaders are able to exercise their counterfeit hold over billions of people from behind their nationalised versions of their particular Official Secrets Act.

When the actions of international and national leaders break language to the point where no-one believes in themselves any more let alone their leaders, then inhumanity abounds and the primordial secret that is the human being seems lost under the hammer of the merely “Official Secrets”.

This is why the trial of Julian Assange is so important in this time. The Official Secrets Machine is desperate to regain its Wizard of Oz appearance of utility.

In recovery dynamics, it is said that “a person is as sick as their secrets”.

This is because the word secret cannot have a plural for a person realising themself as The Human, being.

I am as well as my Secret (Sirr), I am as sick as my secrets.

Of course there are criminals and bullies who feed off the underbelly of Mankind’s attempts to civilise itself under the rules of law serving the rule of Love. History shows that the Yin-Yang of individual wrestling with shadow and substance is sometimes reflected in the very systemic bodies of nations themselves.

But when the lines between the good guys and the bad guys become so blurred as to cause levels of cultural dissonance the like of which are now destabilising the minds of whole masses of people globally, then we may be sure that we are all in an emergency situation that calls for urgent remedial action.

“If dull people lose the idea of God nothing happens – not immediately at least. But socially the masses begin to breed mental epidemics, of which we have now a fair number.”

(C. G. Jung, Psychology & Religion (New Haven and London: Yale University Press, 1938) 105.)


This particular time of Julian Assange being put on trial for exposing the breakdown of humanity that is characterised by the Official Secrets system that permits the Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) policies of the global international gold standard leadership policy for protecting Mankind from itself, this particular time is completing the countdown for whether our species is viable or not.

The autoimmune deficiency that is the MAD protocol is another way of describing the disease of Stuck-addiction. Mankind can solve any problem that it can describe clearly. The challenge is in that description and this is no longer helped by nations imagining that their paltry little piratical secrets are of any use to humanity whatsoever.
