The 'useful idiots' of the deep state. They are typically aware that they are engaging in illegal or corrupt behaviour, but may know little or nothing of the deep state for which they work.

Not to be confused with deep politicians, deep state operatives or deep state actors, who are more informed and autonomous.

A deep state functionary is a relatively low level deep state operative who is used by deep state actors. As agents of covert deep state control, they may hold apparently powerful jobs, such as heads of large companies or even national governments. However, they generally know little of the deep political environment which defines their parameters.


This term was defined in July 2018 on Wikispooks, before which time it was used almost interchangeably with the term "deep state actor" and "deep state operative".


The main utility of deep state functionaries to deep states is as blindly obedient footsoldiers. As they may know little or nothing about deep state operations, they are useful cut-outs. Those with high positions in government or other organisations may be used to implement deep state policies, as directed by deep state actors. For this purpose, they may enjoy the "Bilderberg effect" - a meteoric rise through hierarchies as their handlers seek to have them promoted to positions in which they can be of more use to the deep state.


Deep state functionaries are not well informed about the deep state groups for which they work. Some are knowingly corrupt subjects of blackmail and/or bribery who are induced to follow orders by their handlers. Others may be motivated by fear or abstract ideologies such as "patriotism", religion etc. or by psychological motivations such as personal loyalty, ego etc. They may be completely unaware that they are working for deep state groups.
