West’s 1953 coup against Iran goes on
… by Jim W. Dean, VT Editor … with Press TV

The hard copy CIA archive confirmation of its engineering the 1953 Iranian coup in cahoots with Britain’s MI6 was a news headline this past week. But as pointed out by Press TV, it was old news.
Anyone who wanted to know already did.
This continued charade of governments and their security organs pretending that they can somehow control public perceptions about “what really happened” when everybody already knows, continues to undermine public trust.
The public correctly views this as an attitude of contempt by those in government sworn to protect and serve us. To that you can add the historical government refusal of accepting any responsibility for its misguided and failed policies.
This is especially so if such policies were never really designed for the public, but for special interests, both the visible kind and worse … the invisible.
The whole world is facing crises in governments of almost every kind, everywhere. Despite the Hollywood and Madison Avenue public relations campaigns to hide it as a minor systemic problem which all suffer, corruption runs deep throughout most of them and always has.
BY BURYING AWAY UNDER SECURITY CLASSIFICATIONS AND EVERYTHING THAT CITIZENS REALLY NEED TO ACCURATELY MEASURE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THEIR GOVERNMENTS, AND EVEN THEIR LOYALTY, IT MAKES CALLING THEM DEMOCRACIES A BAD JOKE. OUR FOUNDING FATHERS WARNED THAT AN INFORMED CITIZENRY WOULD BE CRUCIAL TO MAINTAINING A TRUE REPUBLIC, AND FRANKLY, WE HAVE FAILED.
There is a token rationale for the continued secrecy which drives contemporary governments from hiding the past misdeeds of those before them for which the new people had no real responsibility. Why would the innocent join the guilty by covering up previous misdeeds?
I must admit it took me a while to find an answer, that they did so to avoid the public rage from such past revelations. Why? Because it would trigger questions and inquiries about whether such misdeeds were continuing today, the answer to which is yes, they obviously are.
That is why the devil’s spawn serve the devil. They do not want to face public contempt for their currently betraying the public trust. In short, they want to save their own behinds, so they hope someone will also hide their own bad deeds.
