A deep event "large enough to affect the whole fabric of society".

Structural deep events, as defined by Peter Dale Scott, are deep events "large enough to affect the whole fabric of society".[1] Deep politicians conceive them to effect deep political goals. Structural deep events often entail a swathe of low- or mid-level deep events either in preparation or afterwards. 9-11, for-example was followed by multiple premature deaths.


Extensive plans for maintaining secrecy are necessary for structural deep events. A common component is the national "investigation" commission to fix an official narrative and take care of pieces of evidence or witnesses who contradict it. Quite often this is held in reserve, as a way of stalling opposition.

Official narrative

Fast adoption of a single official narrative is a widely used strategy to try to foreclose thought, discussion and investigation. Later, an official opposition narratives about a structural deep event is a good way to control the opposition. Sometimes multiple such narratives are prepared for later use (for example, Lee Harvey Oswald's various sheepdippings).[2]

9-11 is the most outstanding example of a structural deep event in recent years, the purposes of which included launching the "War on Terror" and the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Dozens of drills were used in the cover-up, which also involved premature deaths of witnesses and 9-11 dissidents.

"War on Terror"

Full article: Rated 4/5 “War on Terror”

The "war on terror", launched after 9-11, is itself a structural deep event, used as cover for a variety of purposes to promote fear and advance the police state.

"Iran-Contra"A drug trafficking/weapons smuggling operation carried out in the 1980s with the approval of the top of the US government.
"War on Terror"
2014 Ukraine coup
9-11A complex and spectacular set of events in New York and Washington. The US government was quick to blame Al Qaeda, though no evidence of guilt was presented and there is much suspicion about what Al Qaeda really is. In the USA 9-11 assisted the Patriot Act's roll back of civil liberties, the stepping up of domestic surveillance and the financial advancement of the military industrial complex. Abroad 9-11 helped launched wars on Iraq and Afghanistan that had been planned long before.
Australia/1975 coup d'étatA CIA/MI6-backed covert "constitutional coup" to remove Gough Whitlam whom they saw as a loose cannon.
JFK/AssassinationThe assassination of US President John F. Kennedy was the seminal deep political event of modern times, perhaps even more than 9-11. Both were done by the same group. Subsequently the group assassinated RFK, MLK and many others to try to contain the truth.
MLK/AssassinationOfficially a US-government assisted assassination!
October surpriseA secret deal which offered the Iranians weapons in return for their preventing the release of the US embassy hostages before the 1980 US presidential election.
Patrice Lumumba/AssassinationA US Deep state backed assassination, ordered by Allen Dulles, which was followed by decades of bloody violence.
Russian apartment bombingsA 'Russian 9/11' which boosted support for the second war that was launched in Chechnya
Susurluk car crashA seminal but still rather poorly understood deep event. It led to the coining of the phrase "deep state", and by extension "deep politics" and "deep politician".
Watergate coupThis is framed by the official narrative as a simple case of political corruption, one which proves that "the system works", since the powerful perpetrator was caught - if not actually brought to justice, since outgoing president Nixon was immediately pardoned by his successor, Gerald Ford. In fact it may well have been the outworking of a deeper political power struggle at work.
William McKinley/AssassinationThe Assassination of William McKinley
