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.

How do one define a deep state operative vs a deep state actor? The article could need one more sentence to clarify the difference. I have been using the terms interchangeably so far. Terje (talk) 11:11, 13 June 2021 (UTC)---
- The current page of this talk page https://wikispooks.com/wiki/Deep_state_operative was placed as an umbrella term as we define Deep State people in 3 terms now;
Deep state functionary - Intel agencies call them useful idiots. CEOs, ministers, lawyers that don't know what kind of network they work for, but naively work for DSG (maybe just because of profit for their company/country, religious believes or plain obsession with money/power & just want to pay their mortgage and not die); Alexander Acosta, Tony Abbott, Dennis Muilenburg
Deep state actor - These are the handlers of the groups, they know what kind of network they're working for, they actively work to maintain power for their groups; Jeffrey Epstein for the Mossad. Huma Abedin for/in Clinton's 7th Floor group.
The reason I still sometimes use use deep state operative, is because I haven't done enough research to confidentially classify someone into one of the three terms (the two above and deep politician). Robin opted for a fourth term, But I thought we should improve the pages describing the methods of the 3 forms of deep state people first. I'd still advise you to do that if needed, I'll add these distinctions to the page in the meantime. --Jun (talk) 19:38, 13 June 2021 (UTC)
