A Quick Run Around the Web -- December 22, 2015 (Updated)

      Security researcher Brian Wallace was on the trail of hackers who had snatched a California university's housing files when he stumbled into a larger nightmare: Cyberattackers had opened a pathway into the networks running the United States power grid.
        Digital clues pointed to Iranian hackers. And Wallace found that they had already taken passwords, as well as engineering drawings of dozens of power plants, at least one with the title 'Mission Critical.' The drawings were so detailed that experts say skilled attackers could have used them, along with other tools and malicious code, to knock out electricity flowing to millions of homes.
          Wallace was astonished. But this breach, The Associated Press has found, was not unique.
          ... the Hegelian Dialectic is a mechanism to arrive at a final truth or conclusion. Right now you probably use the Aristotelian method for arriving at truth, which is to observe all the facts of the situation and then make the most logical conclusion based from those observations. Hegel explained a process where truth is instead arrived through the friction and conflict between one force (the thesis) and its opposite (the antithesis). The final result from that clash, the synthesis, is the best conclusion.
            In all likelihood, the synthesis is not the final and absolute truth. It becomes the new thesis where a new antithesis forms to oppose it. The conflict between them leads to a second synthesis. This process repeats until the final synthesis is revealed, which theoretically is absolute truth.

              * * *

                Hegel proposed his dialectic as a natural way of arriving at the truth, but had in mind that the nation itself was the vehicle to create new syntheses. Like most Enlightenment thinkers, he threw god away and made the nation-state god instead. The modern elite has taken this a step further by pre-determining a synthesis (a specific agenda) and then developing events that arrive at that synthesis through artificial means.
                  If the elite has a result they would like to have, whether it be increased authoritarian rule or a war that solidifies their power, all they have to do is devise an anti-thesis that will lead to the outcome they want. This is commonly done through false flag attacks, where the government of a nation attacks itself so that it can respond in the way that it had wanted to all along, because it’s only through that attack would citizens agree to the planned synthesis. False flag attacks are in fact a common way for governments to fulfill their goals.
                  What must also be considered is the fact that terrorist groups are displaying the same capabilities as conventional forces.  ....
                    The problem is this. Special Operations Forces are good. They even have their own mafia and fan club on the internet.  But everyone forgets the truth. You don't send Special Ops against a decently trained conventional force. Special Ops are vulnerable to conventional forces....and now terrorists groups are starting to show the signs of morphing into conventional forces! The Special Ops raid of the past might be fading right before our eyes. We've already seen a growth in unit size from platoon equivalent to now Ranger type battalion sized ops.  
                    • Update: "Germans Arming Up In Response To Migrant Crime"--Anonymous Conservative. After noting various articles indicating that Germans are buying more weapons because of the exploding crime rates from the immigrants invading the country, the author goes on to predict:
                    Next the stories will be about why they are arming themselves, and all the awful things that the refugees are doing. That will comes as the nature of the people’s cognition changes, and the media adapts to meet it. As this stress wears on the Germans, day to day, their amygdalae are growing stronger, and more practiced at applying the pain of aversive stimulus to the brain. As they grow more practiced, the stimulus grows stronger, and less able to be ignored. As the stimulus is less able to be ignored, it will become more bothersome, be focused on more, and be exercised even more, in a constant feedback loop of increased sensation —>increased awareness —>increased sensation —>increased awareness. Eventually, the least irritation will provoke an uncontrollable urge to eradicate the source, be it an imperfection in a work product, or a leftist demanding that they import violent foreigners.
