And the government labels us paranoid….

Straight out of Uncle Saul’s playbook yet again:

8. “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off
balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.

Result: realistic confusion, stress, and anxiety.

9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.

Result: confusion, stress, and anxiety give way to realistic ongoing fear.

5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

Result: we get labeled paranoid.

And finally:

12.“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.
