Future leaders in deep state structures have to come from somewhere.

People working in undemocratic deep state structures have to be recruited from somewhere. These operations carefully select and evaluate promising young people. The selection is done in the open, and membership is often worn as a badge of pride. Talents are spotted, the unruly ones are vetted out, weaknesses spotted and their personal contacts established.

Through largesse from the backers - study grants, travel and accommodation, wining and dining - a bond of dependency is created in the cadets.

The system has been particularly developed since the early 1980s, when the CIA started performing more of its work in the open, but the British Rhodes Scholarship which gives future leaders a grant to study at the University of Oxford was established in 1903.

Membership in one of these networks is often highly beneficial to ones career, and is often a first step in going the grades from deep state functionary, deep state actor to deep politician.
