"DEEP POLITICS" AND THE MOON RACE

Soviet Gray Areas of History Explored and Exposed

An Article-Editorial

By Peter Pesavento


A lie is best concealed between two truths.
The dog barks, yet the caravan rolls on.
--Russian proverbs

The ultimate truth is pent-ultimately always a falsehood. He who will be proved right in the end appears to be wrong and harmful before [the truth shows itself].
--Arthur Koestler, from Rubashov's diary "Darkness at Noon-Second Hearing" Chapter 1 (1940)

History is never a closed book or a final verdict. It is always in the making.
--Arthur Schlesinger Jr., from "History and National Stupidity" The New York Review of Books (April, 2006)

Thus I now refer to . deep politics, [which is described as] political practices and arrangements, deliberate or not, which are usually repressed rather than acknowledged.
--Peter Dale Scott, from "Deep Politics and the Death of JFK" Chapter 1 (1998)
