Those who would hijack the legal institutions shielding society from Wall Street perfidy must also hijack the political institutions providing them oversight, and hijack the discourse about those legal and political institutions, and hijack the social institutions mediating that discourse. The capture must run deep to be stable. So deep, in fact, that records of the past become untrustworthy.
The records of the past have in fact become untrustworthy. Stories have disappeared from databases and video clips from websites. It has happened as recently as this week: a clip to which “The Story of Deep Capture” linked as evidence stopped working. And just today has begun a new round of clogging the discourse regarding our claims (the simple difference between legal short-selling and illegal stock counterfeiting being too fine a distinction for almost any journalist to recognize when characterizing my position).
This chapter is meant to remedy that situation. It will serve as an archive of material to which the rest of DeepCapture may link, with little editorial comment. Those who wish to take issue with DeepCapture’s archiving and deconstruction of their copyrighted articles and videos (and, perhaps, emails) know where to find us.
