From Mike Champine (on Facebook):
What is controlled opposition? It’s a term that gets thrown around now and then. But most people, even the brightest and smartest minds, don’t seem to actually know what it is or how to spot it, and most seem to fall for it. I fell for it in the past, I admit it. I know others who have also, and had to learn their lesson.
“The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.” — That quote is attributed to Lenin. I’m not sure if he really said it. It doesn’t matter to me if he said it, or who said it. Whoever said it, this is exactly what the “elites”, “the establishment”, “the ruling class”, “the powers that be”, “the deep state”, the “shadow government”, “the leaders of the planet” — whatever you want to call them — this is exactly what they believe, and practice. Controlled opposition is one of their most effective weapons, because it’s a psychological weapon. The establishment uses mind tricks and plays mind games on genuinely good people that are genuinely opposed to their attacks on our civil liberties and their crimes against humanity.
Put slightly differently, “controlled opposition” is.. opposition.. that is…controlled. Controlled opposition figures do in fact challenge establishment narratives, for example — but only in ways that the establishment allows to some degree. Controlled opposition figures often do tell the truth, but only aspects of the truth that the establishment tolerates. It is truth that does not actually threaten their power, but only appears to. The truths that the establishment wants the masses to ignore or remain ignorant of are omitted or spoken of as half-truths.
The controlled opposition or controlled resistance leader can also lie, but his or her lies will go largely unnoticed by the victims of the establishment’s psychological operation. What will be highlighted is the controlled resistance leader’s “abuse” by the establishment. The abuse may be “staged”, but it may also be very real.
Controlled opposition figures can also be “sacrificed”, so to speak, by their controllers. When the elite has got what they want out of them, they can be kicked to the curb — couped, demoted, fired, jailed, killed, or destroyed in other ways.
Controlled opposition figures tend to be widely known public figures. You will see their names in corporate media, or they will run for political office (and sometimes they will win an election). If a person you respect is criticized by the MSM, you should take the fact that they appeared in MSM in the first place as a red flag. If they truly were a threat to the elite, their names and what they have to say would never be covered in an establishment newspaper or website that could be viewed widely by the public. They would be censored, silenced, blacked out, like many of us on social media are.
We do not need a savior in the form of a politician, a businessman, a journalist, a doctor or any other “expert” to come and save us from the nightmare that our “leaders” have created for us. When we trust popular “heroes” to come and rescue us, yet fail to see the puppet strings that might be attached to them, we will be lured into a trap that the powers that shouldn’t be have set for us. And they will be laughing, because we fell into their trap – without even realizing it. They are masters of manipulation and mind control. Beware and don’t let your guard down.
