A Game Plan For Actually Winning Our Freedom Back -- Part 1Submitted by John Adams on Sun, 04/25/2010 - 18:41
Hey everyone, I haven't posted in a while, but I have some ideas on how we can re-position this movement to actually win our Freedom back. This is Part 1, let me know what you think from your comments and if you're on board to hear more, I'll post Part 2.
Instead of putting all of our eggs into one basket: The election of Liberty Candidates and some miracle of a re-balancing of power in 2012 with the election of Ron Paul, we need to start being practical and realistic and start learning from the opponent before it's too late. We need to be like the elites in that they have multiple pots on the stove at all times; like a hydra, if they lose one head or organization, two more sprout up where that one was lost and they've still got many others to choose from. That's how we need to be. We need to focus on multiple avenues of spreading our ideology and message by tailoring the presentation of our message to our audience.
The first thing everyone here needs to do is read "The 48 Laws of Power" by Robert Greene (Downloadable here for Free: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=FTG7A2SF) (Amazon Link: http://www.amazon.com/48-Laws-Power-Robert-Greene/dp/0140280...). It will lend a valuable insight on exactly how the elite operate in order to manipulate and control mass public thought and opinion. It will also explain why, despite fervent explanations and appeal to logic and reason, many people still adamantly oppose you and turn on you for telling the truth/trying to open their eyes and help them.
We can actually compete with those in power for hearts and minds by employing their own techniques against them. In order to defeat the enemy, we need to mirror its tactics. This includes better marketing of our message, providing services (by means of introducing innovative workarounds to government roadblocks on business and rebuilding communities by bartering, volunteering, etc. -- basically helping people out in a reasonable way), and becoming an integral part of the fabric of the community.
When it comes down to it, people trust what they see everyday rather than what they hear. By actually acting local and DOING SOMETHING GOOD, rather than talking about the coming collapse and how much everything sucks and how evil all the elite are, people can be won over.
If you can give broke, scared, unemployed people some direction to turn other than "vote for a liberty candidate / write your congressman / go protest at a Tea Party" -- then you can change their minds because they will be receptive to your message since it was your actions that actually helped them to get out of their situation in some way.
If we don't start doing this, it's only one False Flag event away from the end. All they have to do is have one agent provocateur or lunatic open-fire at a Tea Party and they'll hunt down every single "Constitution Loving Potential Homegrown Terrorist" in America and much of the public will be cheering for it.
This is why it is imperative to redirect that energy from spirited protest to productive real-world action ASAP. The Tea Parties have already accomplished their jobs. People now know that they're not alone and there are millions who are receptive to a new direction. It's time to be smart and seize upon that receptiveness and embrace it with not only words but constructive action.
This is also advantageous because there is no one for Government or the MSM to scapegoat if there is no single target. This also means creating splinter groups without the words "Tea Party" in their names. Focus local. We value people as individuals, let's start appealing to them as such. People will get the picture.
The Tea Parties can fizzle out and the Freedom Movement can take its place. That way it doesn't matter if the RNC blows a billion dollars on their fake Tea Party Express stuff, no one will be buying it since they'll already be members of their local Freedom/Liberty organizations that are actually doing something more than protesting. Best of all, this re-branding neutralizes the threat of provocateur action as well as any hate coming from the MSM. What are they going to say? "Look at those scumbag Freedom Lovers, they're volunteering to help build affordable housing for homeless grandmas and teaching their neighbors how to grow their own vegetables because they can't stand the thought of a black man as President" I think not.
If you could look out your window and see a bunch of those "crazy racist Teabaggers" helping rebuild homes, working within their communities to create localized food / farming sources, self-sustainable neighborhoods, etc. and then you hear CNN/MSNBC/CBS/NBC/ABC and others continue to bash them you'll stop listening b/c you know it's B.S. -- but if the only exposure you have to the Freedom Movement is the TV clips you see of people protesting all day long or Sarah Palin / Fox News attacking Obama, you might be fooled. This is why it is very important to start DOING SOMETHING POSITIVE ON A LOCAL LEVEL.
This is how Big Government built its base of power in the first place (this is the system of community organizing in order to build "coalitions of power"). By giving money through welfare and other programs, the government actually provided people with something whereas they otherwise had nothing, and this ingratiated them. We can use this same technique, but instead of welfare, we can set an example of self-sufficiency and actually help people learn how to do things for themselves without having to depend on Government; by demonstrating real world application of Freedom, this does far more than all the speeches and Youtube videos in the world.
If you guys are receptive to these concepts and want to hear more, let me know and I'll post Part 2 that has some more specifics on: exactly the types of stuff/ activities we can start with as well as some ways to splinter, further decentralize, and even create specialized "teams" within the movement to help streamline spreading the message (by incorporating people's individual talents into an area where their expertise could be used); drastically reducing the costs of producing ads for candidates; eliminating the hazard of campaigns wasting time/money when we donate to them, real-time demographic polling/tracking in order to have instant response to lagging support areas, blowing apart the idea of the traditional barometer of political strength being fundraising totals, etc.
