There are so many people with reasons for wanting their government to work.
One, they won’t or can’t do the job that government does themselves – issuing drivers’ licences, picking up garbage, delivering the mail, etc.
Two, they’ve been raised in a family setting and have extended that to their government. They like the feeling of security that relying on their government provides.
These folks want to be able to think that government is law-abiding, reliable, and caring.
Statements like that of Patrick Byrnes oblige us to face up to the reality that government itself, and many of its organs, can be corrupted and thereafter pursue courses that are anything but legal – that are illegal in the extreme (and we haven’t heard the real deep-state extremes yet – and I hope we never need to).

In posting Byrne’s comments, CNN added:
“The phrase “Deep State” is used to suggest there is an architecture of government that operates outside the democratic system. President Donald Trump and his supporters have also used the phrase to reference conspiracy theories that claim insidious actors are attempting to undermine his presidency.” (2)
We have Patrick Byrne on the one hand acknowledging his part in things reported by a news service that is said to be hiding its own.
Mr Byrne takes his life in his hands to say what he said. He may be following the rule of thumb that if you say it widely, publicly, you may be safe. The only way to stay alive may be to come clean.
Whatever the case, doing what he did takes courage. In an age of cover-ups, to come clean is an innovation, a distinct departure.
Then there are all the warnings and exceptions.
He may not be telling the truth. It’d take more research than I can offer to estimate whether he is or isn’t.
Other people more deeply implicated may face a far more likely chance of being assassinated if they were to come clean.
Then there are the people who actually planned the black operations such as the Kennedy assassination, 9/11, and the use of omnicidal depleted uranium.
These people will probably have to be pursued by law enforcement and taken to court. Unless they leave a deathbed confession. Otherwise we’d never know what really occurred.
We have to go through the trauma of this uncovering of evil. Simultaneously, we need to turn our attention to the recompense, revival, and rehabilitation of the victims. We have a lot of work ahead of us as global societies.
I’d like to think of Patrick Byrne’s acknowledgment to the press and public of his unknowing role in political dirty work will start a fresh flood of acknowledgements. Providing it doesn’t put a life in danger, I hope there will be a flood of revelations from people wanting to come clean.
Remember how much better Google insider Zachary Vorhies felt after he blew the whistle on Google: It was “a burden lifted off my soul.” (2)
Just say it!
Once you come clean, provided you didn’t intentionally break any laws yourself, you may be able to get on with a better life or pick up the thread of this one.
