Comment: This same logic explains why psychopaths in general occupy the same elite levels.
This is a topic I've explored previously. For example, in the post, In Great Britain, Protecting Pedophile Politicians is a Matter of "National Security", I wrote:
Those with the sickest minds, and who wish to act upon their destructive fantasies, understand that they can most easily get away with their deeds if they are protected by an aura of power and ostensible respectability. They believe that as a result of their status, no one would dare accuse them of horrific activities, and if it ever came to that, they could quash any investigationOf the developed nations, this sort of thing has essentially become institutionalized in Great Britain, with many of the most horrid pedophiles sporting a "Sir" in front of their names. Like oligarch theft and political corruption, the reason it appears to be such an epidemic over there is precisely because the powerful are coddled and protected.
The Daily Beast just published an extraordinary article highlighting this issue. Here are some excerpts:
LONDON — A newspaper editor was handed startling evidence that Britain's top law enforcement official knew there was a VIP pedophile network in Westminster, at the heart of the British government. What happened next in the summer of 1984 helps to explain how shocking allegations of rape and murder against some of the country's most powerful men went unchecked for decades.Yep, as mentioned earlier, protecting powerful pedophiles really is considered a matter of national security in the UK.
Less than 24 hours after starting to inquire about the dossier presented to him by a senior Labour Party politician, the editor was confronted in his office by a furious member of parliament who threatened him and demanded the documents. "He was frothing at the mouth and really shouting and spitting in my face," Don Hale told The Daily Beast. "He was straight at me like a raging lion; he was ready to knock me through the wall."
Despite the MP's explosive intervention, Hale refused to hand over the papers which appeared to show that Leon Brittan, Margaret Thatcher's Home Secretary, was fully aware of a pedophile network that included top politicians.
The editor's resistance was futile; the following morning, police officers from the counter-terror and intelligence unit known as Special Branch burst into the newspaper office, seized the material and threatened to have Hale arrested if he ever reported what had been found.
More than 30 years later, an inquiry into allegations of child sex abuse rings, murder, and cover-ups has been launched by the British government after Scotland Yard detectives said they believed statements by victims who claimed they were systematically abused as young boys at sex abuse parties attended by judges, politicians, intelligence officers, and staff at the royal palaces.
Great Britain's notoriously tough libel laws insured that obviously he couldn't repeat the allegations included in the Home Office papers that about 16 MPs and members of the House of Lords, and 30 high-profile figures from the Church of England, private schools, and big business, were members of, and advocates for, the Paedophile Information Exchange. The shadowy group, which operated partly in the open, campaigned for the age of consent to be abolished and incest to be legalized. It also allowed pedophiles to send each other secure mail and to meet in person.
Three vehicles pulled up to the newspaper offices and about 15 men barged inside. Two pushed him up against a wall and brandished a search warrant and something they described as a "D-notice." The D-notice system was established in 1912 and was supposed to be used on very rare occasions when national security could be threatened by a news story.
It wasn't just Special Branch that seemed keen to keep MPs out of the clutches of the law. In a candid interview for the BBC in 1995, Tim Fortescue, a former Conservative Party chief whip, described the grubby calculations routinely applied within elite political circles:If a society is incapable of protecting its weakest and most vulnerable members from sexual assault by powerful adults, it's hard to call that society civilized. Just horrible."Anyone with any sense who was in trouble would come to the whips and tell them the truth, and say now, 'I'm in a jam, can you help?' It might be debt, it might be a scandal involving small boys, or any kind of scandal which a member seemed likely to be mixed up in, they'd come and ask if we could help. And if we could, we did. We would do everything we can because we would store up brownie points. That sounds a pretty nasty reason but one of the reasons is, if we can get a chap out of trouble, he'll do as we ask forever more."There is growing evidence that MI5 and MI6, Britain's security services, took a similar view. MI5 is alleged to have repeatedly blocked investigations into a sex abuse ring at the Kincora children's home in Northern Ireland in order to protect its intelligence-gathering operation.
The longtime deputy director of MI6, and former High Commissioner in Canada, Peter Hayman was himself allegedly a pedophile, and was ultimately named as such in parliament by Geoffrey Dickens. Hayman had been caught with explicit material in 1978 but no charge was brought. Secret files discovered at the National Archives this year revealed that the attorney general at the time believed it wasn't in the public interest for Hayman to be prosecuted. Prime Minister Thatcher ordered his depravity to be concealed from the public.
Carl was abused by a pedophile ring from the age of 7, and the emotional and physical torture went on for nine years. Some of his attackers, he says, were men with influence and authority. "The authority is not what stops people from speaking out, it's the fear that is instilled by these people," he said. "It appears the cover-ups did happen and it makes survivors very wary because you don't know who you can have confidence in to report."
