Deep State

Posted by Thoughts and Ramblings on Sunday, March 24, 2024

It’s no secret that the culture inside Washington is different from the rest of the nation. It is so strong that many elected officials who go to Washington get corrupted into betraying their principles and becoming one of them. They are told “how things are done” and accept it as they chip away at their integrity until they are no longer the same person. This is one of the ways the culture in Washington encourages a type of group-think. Eventually most everyone ends up buying into the mentality if they spend enough time there.

When enough people who think similarly get together, it easily yields the appearance of conspiracy. This can be accomplished without any conspiracy or collusion of any kind. It doesn’t require anything more than one knowing another thinks similarly and will act accordingly. This culture combined with the belief they know better than the rest of the nation is all that’s needed to get the “Swamp” or “Deep State” to emerge.

So whether you think there is any organization to this or not, the culture and mentality does and the result end up being the same.
