¶ 2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 Do we error, dangerously, by modeling social/societal reality as interacting component Institutions/Organizations, such a Governments, Corporations, Agencies, Departments, Businesses, Universities, Armies, etc.?
¶ 3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 For this essay, I will label them Formal Societal Systems (FSS). These can be defined in terms of their respective semfields – the various texts & documents that define, describe, or legitimize them. They are patterns in the archives of our semiotic structures (sems). There are roles in an FSS, that at any time may host a living human, who are expected to behave according to the FSS semfield. FSSs usually keep detailed records, with different degrees of security. Most employ sophisticated technologies seafing interaction between members-in-roles.
¶ 4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 FSSs are not “real” in the sense that houses, cities, and a population of persons at a given “time & place” are “real”. However, many persons treat them as being “real” – assigning them attributes usually reserved for material objects (including machines). Corporation, governments, or any FSS can’t be perceived with human senses.
¶ 5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 Also, represented by patterns in reports/semfields, are Conspiratorial-Gangs, or CGs. However, CGs are more “defined” by their living human person components and their interactions than an records or semfields. CGs are “conspiratorial” in that they don’t advertise themselves and may take steps to hide or deny their existence.
¶ 6 Leave a comment on paragraph 6 0 Others can know of CGs only from reports claiming to be about them. Those persons who are members of a CG (some named in the reports describing the CGs) personally experience their participation in a CG, in different ways. There may be internal texts as partial semfields about some “policies & procedures” for a CG, but much of how they organize and act are “informal” & “secret”, stored in memories. Investigative reporters may study actions of an “identified” CG, interview current and past members, and write books about that CG.
¶ 7 Leave a comment on paragraph 7 0 By “conspiratorial” I don’t imply groups meeting secretly, at a table, planning (conspiring). Basically, CGs intend to do things they don’t want others to know about. Planning a surprise birthday party is a “conspiratorial” behavior. All humans engage in “conspiratorial behavior with others” at some times in their lives.
¶ 8 Leave a comment on paragraph 8 0 A CG is analogous to a tribe within early humankind, but more fluid in membership. Members may have associations with other human groups. However, the primary environment of CGs are FSSs (Formal Societal Systems) and not the “natural” environments (trees and animals) of tribal humans.
¶ 9 Leave a comment on paragraph 9 0 CGs can organize with other CGs. I will label an “organization” of different CGs as a “Cabal”. My online dictionary refers to both gangs and cabals as small. Yet, our media uses “cabal” to label large associations of Mexican CGs. Let CCG stand for Cabals of Conspiratorial Gangs. The org pattern of a CCG will be a mix of systems and networks, which I label sysnets.
¶ 10 Leave a comment on paragraph 10 0 CGs can be conceived as parasites feeding off FSSs. CGs and CCGs can influence semfields of FSSs. A CG or CCG can have members distributed among different FSSs. Some CCGs may be hierarchical, with a “top” CG. Others may be more open, distributed networks of CGs.
¶ 12 Leave a comment on paragraph 12 0 Is Putin the Prime-Leader-of-Russia (an FSS) and also a member of a Global CCG (GCCG)? Who else are members of this GCCG? What are their goals, objectives & strategies? Are there many (more than one) GCCG? How might they interact? Might BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) be more a GCCG (with CCGs from other nations) and not an emergent global FSS (GFSS) – in opposition to the loose GFSS of the USA, EU, and other nations of the “West”.
¶ 15 Leave a comment on paragraph 15 0 Are the actions of Trump&Company and the GOP performing proper roles within the USA (Constitutions) or part of a GCCG COUP on our FSS? The Media, owned and dictated by players in this game, strongly avoid any mention that we may be in process of a coup, or something bigger & worse.
¶ 17 Leave a comment on paragraph 17 0 Peter Dale Scott has long written about DEEP POLITICS. Today, the term “Deep State” is bandied about by all “sides”. Might those playing “Deep Politics” be more a GCCG than a “state” (GFSS)?
Leave a comment on paragraph 21 0
(1) The secrecy within parts of an FSS
may be authorized by the formal “state”.
(2) Conspiratorial Gangs may force
the FSS they infect,
to support their secrecy.
¶ 27 Leave a comment on paragraph 27 0 Yet, almost everyone behaves as if these UGLY TIMES will soon end and all will return to “normal”. We are paralyzed and blinded by the multiple tsunamis bearing down on us. OUR “institutions”, “rules of law”, “right mindedness”, “values” will all come together in the near future and “save us” – or so we believe, in desperation.
¶ 29 Leave a comment on paragraph 29 0 I propose that we explore whether our assessment of our Crisis-of-Crises and our options aren’t severely handicapped by erroneous assumptions about HUMANKIND (both human persons and human social/societal systems – and how they change)!

the mind/brains of humans
their tech infrastructure for communication and organization are
to “manage” our “accidental” (unintended)
Leave a comment on paragraph 33 0
Humankind has morphed into
a malignant cancer within GAIA;
a systemic outcome.
No individual human person
IS TO BLAME!
EACH HUMAN PERSON, lives within their inner wrld
which justifies their actions.
WE didn’t freely chose OUR inner wrlds.
