The Reason The Liberty Movement Hasn't Already WonSubmitted by What's in a name on Mon, 03/10/2014 - 21:25
We've all fought long and hard... We've utilized various different plans, techniques and tactics from as many angles as we could conceive.
Some took the fight to the establishment through infiltrating the GOP, others fought in courts or protested in the streets... We've documented corruption, rights violations and murder by elected and appointed officials and have made their crimes known to the general public.
We've evaluated the challenges facing our communities, states and nation and have proposed sound and logical solutions... We've eloquently stated our views in letters to editors, blogs and message boards. We've intellectually neutered the opposition in debates and discussions... but we're still not able to reach critical mass.
I was lamenting on what it is that has kept us from breaking through to the masses... and then it hit me at work today as I carried on a 5-6 minute conversation with an absolute moron.
Our Countrymen are MORONS!
The mean IQ worldwide is 100. There are numerous articles available online which suggest the average American is even dumber than the average person worldwide. (which anecdotal evidence from my own life would generally support)
So the problem is that we're trying to use logic and intellect to drive home our points... and we're not dealing with a target market which reads books and knows history. We need to develop a plan to appeal to the lowest common denominator... a strategy to reach the "America's Next Top Superstar Whatever" fans. We need to dumb it down to a sentence or two that hits home with the kind of people who quote commercials to each other and laugh about it.
To take it to the next level we need to get stupid... almost retarded.
The next time your brother-in-law or father-in-law comes over spouting neocon or neoliberal BS, pay attention to the little nuggets he spouts to back his programmed-opinion... We need to learn to package soundbytes and talking points. The people are just too dumb to reach any other way...
We must utilize repetition as the average American is heavily medicated. We must utilize repetition as the average American is heavily medicated. The message must be delivered frequently and through multiple formats.
Reduce Liberty to its most basic sentiment and try to express it monosyllabically.
U free Bro? Me 2!
