As always, The System is ahead of the curve on this one.
Golden Rule #1. Hidden (or unrecognised) systems are constantly under threat of exposure.
Over time, the forward planners of any hidden system - in whose interest it is to maintain the system as it is, because of the power that it affords them - constantly work on bending the belief of the unknowing participants towards it's agenda, which can be exploited by The System to perpetuate it's control.
This constant threat of exposure means that The System has to be pretty fluid in it's thinking, remaining highly adaptable to changing thought patterns that elude it's control. Because - in reality - only a tiny margin, in percentage terms, is required to tip the balance in The System's favour. i.e. if everything that happens in the world is 100% of the total, The System need only consistantly exert control over perhaps 1% of what happens to shape a long-term strategic gain over anything else. As a consequence - with these tiny margins of error determining whether a success or failure - The System is forced to sail very close to the edge of disaster (it's own demise) in order to retain power. It does this with aplomb. Up to a point.
The System - and it's ability to stay hidden - is under massive pressure at this moment - but it saw it coming. It has worked tirelessly since the last near-calamity, (which almost unmasked it in totality - the banking crisis of 2008) - to create an environment where if it is fully unmasked, the only choice the hitherto unknowing participants will have is; to either support it wholeheartily (things stay the same, stability), or demand it destroyed (things change radically, instability).
This is a gamble The System has been forced to take. However, through skillful use of forward-planning, it has succeeded in creating partisan zeal amongst the unknowing, splitting them roughly into two groups that are at loggerheads with one another. This suits The System just dandy.
It shall continue to play one half against the other - and this 'memo', albeit true or not, is aimed squarely at the one half of those liable to believe it.
Golden Rule #2 - there will be casualties.
In power, just like war, there will be casualties. Those that take one for the team, to ensure continuation. Some of The System's best operatives are going to be thrown to the wolves - and this looks to be The Democrats turn. This will, of course, further enrage the already incandescent Democrat voters who consider their President a bad joke at their expense. Tensions will rise across the aisle in The Republican camp. It is a self-fulfilling merry-go-round that is constantly - and with great care - fed by The System to nurture a sense of distrust in 'the other half'.
