Inside Job and/or Conspiracy?

Reconstructing a narrative from its pieces
Some tragic events are a metaphor, an epitome, a simile, an analogy, or similar iconic representation of a larger reality.

Germanwings Airbus A320, Flight 4U 9525, was the scene of a mass-murder according to a French prosecutor.

In a news conference, it was revealed that the German co-pilot intentionally crashed the aircraft (Germanwings flight 4U9525 deliberately flown into mountain, says prosecutor).

Thus, we know that it was an inside job, a suicide, and a mass-murder.

We know that attempts were made to stop it, however, the cockpit door was too strong to get through, the external access mechanism was said to have been turned off, and/or a manual lock had been set, by the co-pilot.

So, the mass-murder could not be thwarted by the senior pilot.

But, was a conspiracy involved, a conspiracy that was engendered by converting the co-pilot's mind into a toxic cognitive machine?

Or, to put it into the vernacular, was someone whispering into the co-pilot's ear during his daily life, or had his mind been hijacked by pathogens a la Oil-Qaeda: The Deadliest Parasite Of Civilization?

I want to use this tragic event as representing (metaphor, epitome, simile, analogy, etc.) another tragic event that Dredd Blog has posted about time and again (MOMCOM's Mass Suicide & Murder Pact, 2, 3, 4, 5).

This airliner mass-murder-suicide event is like the mass-murder-suicide that is taking place within current world civilization.

The first similarity is that these realities are nearly impossible for the majority to comprehend and therefore find credible, even though notable historians have discovered the evidence:
"In other words, a society does not ever die 'from natural causes', but always dies from suicide or murder --- and nearly always from the former, as this chapter has shown."
(A Study of History,  by Arnold J. Toynbee). Psychologists have been puzzled by this phenomenon as applied to Oil-Qaeda:
06:28 - "the genetic argument allows us the luxury of ignoring past and present historical and social factors. In the words of Louis Menand who wrote in the New Yorker very astutely:
“It’s all in the genes”: an explanation for the way things are that does not threaten the way things are. Why should someone feel unhappy or engage in antisocial behavior when that person is living in the freest and most prosperous nation on Earth? It can’t be the system! There must be a flaw in the wiring somewhere.”
... which is a good way to put it. So the genetic argument is simply a cop-out that allows us to ignore the social and economic and political factors that in fact underlie many troublesome behaviors" (Dr. Maté).

07:25 - "addictions are usually considered to be a drug related issue, but looking at it more broadly, I find that addiction is any behavior that is associated with craving for temporary relief and with long term negative consequences along with an impairment of control over it so that the person wishes to give it up or promises to, but can't follow through" (Dr. Maté).

08:10 - "The addiction to oil ... at least to the wealth and to the products made accessible to us by oil ... look at the negative consequences on the environment we are destroying the very Earth that we inhabit for the sake of that addiction. Now these addictions are far more devastating in the social consequences than the cocaine or heroin habits of my ... patients. Yet they are rewarded and considered to be respectable. The tobacco company executive that shows a higher profit will get a much bigger reward ... doesn't face any negative consequences legally or otherwise ... in fact is a respected member of the board of several other corporations ... but tobacco smoke related diseases kill 5.5 million people around the world every year. In the United States they kill 400,000 people a year" (Dr. Maté).

09:05 - "And these people are addicted to what? To profit, to such a degree are they addicted that they are actually in denial about the impact of their activities, which is typical for addicts, is denial. And that is the respectable one. It is respectable to be addicted to profit no matter what the cost. So what is acceptable and what is respectable is a highly arbitrary phenomenon in our society. And it seems like the greater the harm the more respectable the addiction" (Dr. Maté).

09:35 - "There is a general myth that drugs in themselves are addictive, in fact the "War on Drugs" is predicated on the idea that if you interdict the sources of drugs you can deal with addiction that way. Now, if you understand addiction in the broader sense we see that nothing in itself is addictive. No substance, no drug is by itself addictive. And no behavior is by itself addictive"  (Dr. Maté).
(The "It's In Your Genes" Myth, quoting psychotherapists in a video). Without specific training or education it is not easy for anyone, even psychologists, to understand toxic thought in a toxic mind (i.e. psychopaths).

It is even more difficult when a trusted insider, a "co-" is involved ... something like the Judas syndrome.

It is also sometimes impossible for the perpetrators to understand their condition, or do anything about it, even if they should somehow suspect it:
... [Whitman] killed a receptionist with the butt of his rifle. Two families of tourists came up the stairwell; he shot at them at point-blank range. Then he began to fire indiscriminately from the deck at people below. The first woman he shot was pregnant. As her boyfriend knelt to help her, Whitman shot him as well. He shot pedestrians in the street and an ambulance driver who came to rescue them.

The evening before, Whitman had sat at his typewriter and composed a suicide note:
I don’t really understand myself these days. I am supposed to be an average reasonable and intelligent young man. However, lately (I can’t recall when it started) I have been a victim of many unusual and irrational thoughts.
By the time the police shot him dead, Whitman had killed 13 people and wounded 32 more. The story of his rampage dominated national headlines the next day. And when police went to investigate his home for clues, the story became even stranger: in the early hours of the morning on the day
A religious problem too ...
of the shooting, he had murdered his mother and stabbed his wife to death in her sleep.
It was after much thought that I decided to kill my wife, Kathy, tonight … I love her dearly, and she has been as fine a wife to me as any man could ever hope to have. I cannot rationa[l]ly pinpoint any specific reason for doing this …
Along with the shock of the murders lay another, more hidden, surprise: the juxtaposition of his aberrant actions with his unremarkable personal life. Whitman was an Eagle Scout and a former marine, studied architectural engineering at the University of Texas, and briefly worked as a bank teller and volunteered as a scoutmaster for Austin’s Boy Scout Troop 5. As a child, he’d scored 138 on the Stanford-Binet IQ test, placing in the 99th percentile. So after his shooting spree from the University of Texas Tower, everyone wanted answers.

For that matter, so did Whitman. He requested in his suicide note that an autopsy be performed to determine if something had changed in his brain — because he suspected it had.
I talked with a Doctor once for about two hours and tried to convey to him my fears that I felt [overcome by] overwhelming violent impulses. After one session I never saw the Doctor again, and since then I have been fighting my mental turmoil alone, and seemingly to no avail.
Whitman’s body was taken to the morgue, his skull was put under the bone saw, and the medical examiner lifted the brain from its vault. He discovered that Whitman’s brain harbored a tumor the diameter of a nickel. This tumor, called a glioblastoma, had blossomed from beneath a structure called the thalamus, impinged on the hypothalamus, and compressed a third region called the amygdala.
(Atlantic Monthly, emphasis added). The main problem people have is that we tend to reason about these issues using logic, sanity, reasonableness, and other good dynamics, as a backdrop.

When analysing madness?!
Toxic Bridge: Like Oil-Qaeda he deliberately hid things

Thus, sound judgment is usually removed from the analytical equation.

So, from the very beginning incapacitation sets in, and mystery is all that can follow.

Like the little girl who is told that her mommy has a boyfriend besides her daddy, or that her daddy has a girlfriend besides her mommy, it does not compute.

And is, therefore, rejected forthwith by a culturally automated subconscious circuit (Security: Familyland, Fatherland, or Homeland?).

After all, notice what our own government says about Oil-Qaeda's number one product:
"Oil is the lifeblood of America’s economy."
(The Fleets & Terrorism Follow The Oil). In other words, the justification is: "mommy and daddy say we will die if we don't have our oil."

Thus, as the sea level rises, the sixth mass extinction proceeds unabated, the environment is increasingly poisoned, and the oil companies that make up Oil-Qaeda prosper into fabulous wealth (as more and more "others" become impoverished), the people exclaim "our pilots would never betray us" (The Elections of Pontius Pilots, 2, 3, 4, 5).


  1. I'm more inclined to look at the debris field and see that it's consistent with an explosion of the plane before hitting the ground. There's a plausible theory that the pilot (or co-pilot, whoever was at the helm at the time) possibly had a "medical event" not unlike the many happening to car, bus and truck drivers these days, causing his mind to do bizarre things (like turn off the auto-pilot as his mind was turning to mush and push buttons and turn knobs and pull levers) before he collapsed and was unable to let the other guy into the cockpit. This morning a plane from Barcelona had to return to the airport due to "a burning smell" - so whatever the cause, it may be more pervasive than is being let on.

    Just my 2 cents, as usual. Thanks for another great post Dredd.

    1. The cockpit data recorder indicates that the co-pilot was breathing normally until impact.

      He only activated buttons to deny exterior entry into the cockpit through the external keyboard, and to cause a descent into the mountain.

      He could hear the captain banging on the cabin door (clearly recorded in the orange "black" box), but deliberately ignored the captains demand for re-entry into the cockpit.

      He intentionally and consciously crashed the aircraft.

      That is why it is a criminal investigation now.

  2. Society murder-suicide has happened before as Toynbee wrote.

    Suicidal pilots killing all passengers has happened before too (link).

  3. Meanwhile the federal government lurches forward toward the Arctic:

    "Interior Secretary Sally Jewell is poised to help Shell clear a major hurdle in its effort to resume drilling for oil in the Arctic Ocean, despite opposition from her hometown of Seattle, where the company’s drilling fleet would be moored at the city’s port.

    All nine members of the Seattle City Council signed a letter on Monday calling on Jewell to block the Arctic drilling, said Councilmember Mike O’Brien, who spearheaded the effort

    The feds are "breathing normally" as we head toward ecocidal oblivion, and as the passengers on board in Washington State scream out their protests to no avail.


  4. Excellent parallel Randy.

    Dredd: here's one you can check on later, maybe post about.

  5. Yep, and don't forget this "secret" pact making the rounds:
