crypto adj. Secret; covert.
gon suff. A figure having a specified kind or number of angles.
Governments, Corporations and Media are out of control.
These prominent components of our society are increasingly driven by hypocrisy, corruption and greed. They have never been more powerful than they are today, and their ability to shape the outcome of events goes mostly unnoticed by the public at large.
The Cryptogon refers to the hidden structure underlying and interconnecting the political, economic and perception management systems currently in operation on this planet. When John Ralston Saul states that, “In reality, we are today in the midst of a theology of pure power—power born of structure, not of dynasty or arms,” the “structure” he is referring to is what I am calling the Cryptogon.

SEPTEMBER 11, 2001
September 11, 2001 was the opening scene in the final act of the show we sometimes call, “Society as we know it.” I’m not saying this event marked the beginning of THE END OF EVERYTHING, although it may be that, but it was definitely the beginning of the end of things as they have appeared over the last generation or so.
Since the assassination of John F. Kennedy, an international, crypto-fascist syndicate has been rapidly consolidating its grip on this planet. Changes to the global system have been implemented slowly, consistently and in a manner so subtle that only a tiny fraction of the population in the industrialized world ever noticed anything was wrong.
In the states targeted for control, however, where the interests of what are now the G8 states did not correspond to the interests of the target populations, liberal amounts of genocide, torture and “market discipline” prepared the planet for the overt imperium that is about to be created. The focus during the Cold War was, Containment of Communism. When the Soviet Union collapsed, that focus switched, immediately, to the Expansion of market economies. But how can this expansion go forward if opposition to it is growing with each passing day?
A final push was needed to justify the theft of the whole damn show. And the world watched on CNN. In reality, what has happened is that a few haves out there have picked a fight with the vast majority of people in the world who happen to be have-nots. Of course, nobody in power in the industrialized world comes out and says that. Instead, they roll tape of the World Trade Center towers falling to the ground and talk about the need to fight terrorism.
In other words, 9/11 makes the Reichstag Fire look like a boyscout exercise. Regardless of the details of the genesis of 9/11, the effects are essentially the same. Ask yourself: Cui bono? Who benefits?
In 2000, humanity was at a crossroads. At that point, things probably could have gone either way. After September 11, however, the die has been cast, and we are now witnessing the ascendancy of the same interests that supported Hitler, killed JFK and perpetrated countless and incomprehensible acts against people all over the globe.
I think it would be wise to bear in mind that the events of 9/11 will probably pale in comparison to the diabolical plots that may be hatched in the near future. I say that because, even as bad as 9/11 was, it wasn’t enough to polarize the world. Something else is going to happen that will require a bold move by the G8 states. I don’t know what that event will be, but it will be transformational in nature, changing the way we think about freedom of speech and movement, money, surveillance, state sovereignty and many other factors.
In the wake of 9/11, the outward appearances of things didn’t change significantly—except at airports. After the next event, even the most deaf, dumb and blind Americans will scratch their heads and think, “Gee, there are soldiers on the street.” America as we think we know it is already gone, and has been for years. What will be different is that even the rhetorical image of America will be shattered into pieces. The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave, etc? Remember all of that? The mask will be off and we will finally get to gaze upon the actual system we created with our decades of apathy and sloth.
