Talk:Deep state operative
Another categorisation: "Deep state tool" ?
I've been wondering about the term "deep state tool" for unwitting deep state functionaries. The reason I'm hesitant to use this is the reason that "deep state functionary" is deliberately ambiguous on this point:- it's very hard to know how much someone is aware of what they're working for. Nevertheless, it might be helpful to have such a classification, since "deep state functionary" is such a broad classification. Any thoughts? -- Robin (talk) 16:07, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
It sounds reasonable, although, in my opinion, I think compartmentalization as key-term and some other less-known terms like Parallel Construction, Selective enforcement and Sheep dipping should be added (and extended on their own page with examples like Eyewash) to the DSF-page to explain how these functionaries operate and therefore why the term can be so ambiguous.
