Deep state faction
| Deep state faction|
(deep state group)
|An group of deep state operatives|
A deep state faction is a semi-permanent group of affiliated deep state operatives. In some ways it is the deep political equivalent of a political party, although lacking the public profile, operatives may easily be members of multiple deep state factions.
Relationship to deep state milieux
Some deep state factions are personal affairs, and so rise and fall with the particular individual(s) at their heart. Others are more long lived.
Like political parties, deep state factions have often vied for control over a nation state, although their common fear of exposure (and the increasing effectiveness of leaks) may be lessening this tendency.
