This is the kind of grass roots revolt that communists and socialists merely gin up via money and illusion. It is related to the Gamersgate reaction and the VoxDay/baen author reaction to Tor and the Hugos in Science Fiction Writers of America.

When discussing the merits of whether Jonestown was a good comparison for current modern day Democrat or Leftist obedience to evil, something old was unearthed.
The second was a particular type of psychological coercion described in Deborah Layton’s very fine and highly recommended book Seductive Poison. I am describing this from memory (I read the book many years ago), but my recollection is that they were encouraged to inform on each other if they heard anyone complain about or criticize Jones or Jonestown. The tattler was then publicly praised, while the complainer was subject to public harangues, physical punishment, withdrawal of privileges, and ostracism. In a totally controlled environment, this was especially difficult to take, even for those with strong personalities.
What was even more terrible—and diabolical—was the fact that Jones made some of his close confederates pretend to be be discontented, confiding their criticism of Jones and Jonestown to others. The listeners had no idea that these were false “confessions.” If they listened sympathetically and perhaps shared their own discontent, they were reported and punished. But worse, if they failed to report the confidences of their “friends”—who were actually, unbeknownst to them, Jim Jones plants—then they were punished as well.
The entire system encouraged extreme distrust of sharing any complaints with or confiding in anyone. Therefore no mass rebellion or escape plans could be hatched. A resident never knew who was telling the truth, or who would go straight to Jones with the news. Even those who hated Jones and Jonestown had to wrestle with their consciences about whether to report on a friend; the consequences for failure to do so could be dire.-Neo
So to summarize, Neo said Jonestown was not a good comparison because Jonestown had brainwashing methods designed for a prison camp. And such details were provided in bold, above, on an older post about Jim Jones, the Leftist crusader.
What I immediately noticed, because psychological warfare and propaganda manipulation has become a necessity for me to study and master, is how closely it resembled the florist and Christian baker scenarios.
A homo couple entered a Christian bakery and then taped the refusal to design wedding cakes for an extremist and non socially accepted gathering. The florist was confronted by her “friends” when it came time to talk about obedience to Hussein Obola and the Gaystapo. The florist refused to comply with the expected results from her “friends”. Such events are designed to chill the resistance.
This is what the world is doing while Americans self destruct and slaughter the strongest patriots in recent human existence. (Fort Hood 1, 2, Navy, purging of patriotic factions due to Democrat generals)
North Korea also has several women bureaucrats in photos I’ve seen.
The “patriarchy” Americans are fighting against is a funny propaganda control device. They are as militarized and obedient as the Russians and Ukrainians. They just think they are “free” unlike their foreign counter parts. The military is merely a hierarchy, where when an order comes, no matter what it is, it will be obeyed. Much as if Jesus or God commanded their disciples, the disciples would obey that command. No matter the price. We have seen what religious fanaticism lends to the Muslims and the Arabs. It is no minor joke, what people usually find funny about Mormons, the Amish, and the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Westerners think they are free, thus they do not suffer under a military esque hierarchy. How little do they know the truth.
The idea that the patriarchy is this creepy, old fashioned, obsolete system that has women in the kitchen and barefoot, is a quaint concept. One born of Leftist fevered dreams of dominion and conquest more than anything that reality considered workable. While weaklings find internet comments “unsettling” and uncomfortable, the world produces warriors and soldiers that will gladly kill you. But that’s not uncomfortable, because that’s something Americans refuse to accept as important. Like Hussein on the golf course, they got their head stuck in the sand waving their hands around, ordering the tsunami to pass them by unharmed.
Every nation has a legendary myth that helps generate continued value retention across the generations. Defense, virtue, work ethic, and a whole assembly of various other cultural add ons. Yet few nations have survived this.
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
A nation survives through a multitude of mistakes and correct actions. People hope that the lives sacrificed and the work given, produces more good than mistakes.
America is ruled by foreign terrorists, or essentially will be. That’s not a “mistake”. That’s not the Russians making up back story to make themselves look good, so they can maintain civic morale in wars and peace. That’s gone far beyond the limit.
People like me may be seen as paranoid. It comes through a unique insight into human affairs, that is far and above beyond what is capable by most normal mortals. It’s almost a sixth sense, preternatural abilities. Except that this can merely be acquired through hard work and vigilance, not blood inheritance. Or not merely blood inheritance.
I wrote, in bold:
That’s a good thing. If she gets into contact with DHS, she’ll be dead soon given the Left’s alliance with Islam. The DHS and FBI are so full of Muslim agents and Leftist sympaticos that I wouldn’t touch them with a ten foot pole if it could be helped.
Last time the FBI “contacted” a group in WACO, they and their children mysteriously all died.
Besides, America has a number of excellent mercenary, executive protection, and VIP protection private teams. I can refer her to some, even, for close in detail support. Don’t look to the traitor Government to protect you, look to your fellow Americans, who accept honest and solid, for now, cash.
There are enough socialized killers working as security in America’s private firms that no amount of ISIL could overwhelm using merely small arms. You don’t hear about them because they aren’t stupid.</b>
Along these lines: everyone should read the horrifying account in the National Review of the STASI-style tactics of the Wisconsin Leftist cabal in the courts and police, in hounding and persecuting lawful conservatives, raiding their homes at dawn, trashing their homes, terrifying their children, and making off with all their personal computers, smartphones, etc.: and Ordering Them to Maintain Silence about the pogrom.
Here you go: this will turn your stomach.
“They Came with a Battering Ram.”
Cindy Archer, one of the lead architects of Wisconsin’s Act 10 — also called the “Wisconsin Budget Repair Bill,” it limited public-employee benefits and altered collective-bargaining rules for public-employee unions — was jolted awake by yelling, loud pounding at the door, and her dogs’ frantic barking. The entire house — the windows and walls — was shaking.
She looked outside to see up to a dozen police officers, yelling to open the door. They were carrying a battering ram.
She wasn’t dressed, but she started to run toward the door, her body in full view of the police. Some yelled at her to grab some clothes, others yelled for her to open the door.
“I was so afraid,” she says. “I did not know what to do.” She grabbed some clothes, opened the door, and dressed right in front of the police. The dogs were still frantic.
“I begged and begged, ‘Please don’t shoot my dogs, please don’t shoot my dogs, just don’t shoot my dogs.’ I couldn’t get them to stop barking, and I couldn’t get them outside quick enough. I saw a gun and barking dogs. I was scared and knew this was a bad mix.”
She got the dogs safely out of the house, just as multiple armed agents rushed inside. Some even barged into the bathroom, where her partner was in the shower. The officer or agent in charge demanded that Cindy sit on the couch, but she wanted to get up and get a cup of coffee.
“I told him this was my house and I could do what I wanted.” Wrong thing to say. “This made the agent in charge furious. He towered over me with his finger in my face and yelled like a drill sergeant that I either do it his way or he would handcuff me.”
They wouldn’t let her speak to a lawyer. She looked outside and saw a person who appeared to be a reporter. Someone had tipped him off.
(A comment I left, which produced a lot of interesting links from my archives)
The Sword of the Stranger movie as well as Akira’s biography http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akira_Kurosawa taught me several things.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/After_the_Rain_(film) and Sword of the Stranger were interesting modern Japanese lookbacks at the warrior culture of their nation.
After the Rain, for the sword that gives life, at the highest level of excellence.
Miyamoto Musashi’s life during the decisive battle of the civil West vs East war gave me interesting questions. How Ronins appeared differently than samurai to businessmen and aristocratic zaibatsu clans in modern Japan was another piece of the puzzle.
A knight errant would be much closer to a ronin, a mercenary, or one of Akira’s Seven Samurai. It depends on if a person obeys Authority for the sake of loyalty and obedience, or whether that person obeys his own integral code and beliefs.
I did not truly understand the core message in Sword of the Stranger until later, when I learned lethal force level outputs. The moral message I didn’t even comprehend much of, until I read and reflected on the novel On Killing. The payment exacted on a person’s conscience for Obeying Authority merely because of fear of Authority.
“Cause pain before you injure. Injure before you maim. Maim before you kill. And if you must kill, make it a clean kill. Squeeze every drop of life from the opponent. Because life is so precious, it cannot be wasted, even in death.”
“Let him cut your skin, and you cut his flesh. Let him cut your flesh, and you cut his bones. Let him cut your bones, and you cut off his life.”
Exerting enough will and self discipline to take a mutual cut or death scenario, was an obvious first goal but not the last. Modern civilians complain of being hungry for 30 minutes. Interesting contrast, is it not.
Recently, the youth of Japan are receiving a slightly different message.
“Achieve your mission with all your might.
Despair not until your last breath.
Make your death count!” – Motto of
“To be honest I do not think whether they live or die is the matter at hand. Life is not always better than death. It is not that simple. Living and being made to live are very different things. What matters is what the person chooses of their own free will: whether or not it can be achieved nor how difficult it is.
I want you to consider this: imagine if what matters most to you was taken away against your will. If that is indeed worth less than your life”-
I cannot help but wonder if Japan knows that rearming is the only secure way into the future, given current strategic global affairs.
What you of the CHOAM directorate seem unable to understand is that you seldom find real loyalties in commerce. When did you last hear of a clerk giving his life for the company? Perhaps your deficiency rests in the false assumption that you can order men to think and cooperate. This has been a failure of everything from religions to general staffs throughout history. General staffs have a long record of destroying their own nations. As to religions, I recommend a rereading of Thomas Aquinas. As to you of CHOAM, what nonsense you believe! Men must want to do things out of their own innermost drives. People, not commercial organizations or chains of command, are what make great civilizations work. Every civilization depends upon the quality of the individuals it produces. If you over-organize humans, over-legalize them, suppress their urge to greatness — they cannot work and their civilization collapses.
-A letter to CHOAM, Attributed to The Preacher
I would rather die having spoken in my manner, than speak in your manner and live. For neither in war nor yet in law ought any man use every way of escaping death. For often in battle there is no doubt that if a man will throw away his arms, and fall on his knees before his pursuers, he may escape death, if a man is willing to say or do anything. The difficulty, my friends, is not in avoiding death, but in avoiding unrighteousness; for that runs deeper than death.-Socrates before the Athenian death panel
Authorities, that is what they do when they have the power, but what gives them the right except for people’s willingness to kneel down and obey? For they fear Death above all else.
” Y’all got on this boat for different reasons, but y’all come to the same place. So now I’m asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything, I know this – they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They’ll swing back to the belief that they can make people… better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin’. I aim to misbehave.
Captain Mal Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) Serenity”
I know, that’s a rather weak spine of a title, isn’t it. I’ve been working on my response before 2014 arrived, so I think it is relatively polished by now. And it’s got some upvotes in a recent iteration, so I’ll place it here, for reference later.
In human history and civilizations, their greatest heroes have usually been their greatest killers. The more a person could kill, the more likely their civilization will acclaim them as “hero” or yuusha. Basically, they are the janitors of their society, cleaning out the trash that nobody else wants to deal with.
Kyle’s problem is\was fundamentally that he wasn’t paranoid enough and wasn’t prepared to kill everyone in the room once he got back to the states, which led to his early death at the hands of a supposed fellow patriotic American. Then again, true heroes don’t bare their fangs at their own society, in fact they are often betrayed and killed by their own society once the usefulness of the hero is over. It is perhaps a testament to the purity of a hero, someone who gets the job done that the rest of society cannot or will not do. Someone who often in the end is betrayed by that society later on. Socrates is one example. Themistocles is another in Greek history. Sparta became a den of pleasure and heathen glories under Rome, generations after Leonidas. Hannibal Barca. Far from testaments that nullifies heroism, such things exemplify it.
The fact that Islamic Jihad and the Leftist alliance glorifies their own killers, who they called Che Gue and suicide bombers, is merely proof that their society and civilization is not ours. When the Left attacks one of our heroes, that means they are attacking an ally and their motivation isn’t justice or anything of that sort, it’s merely to win in the war. In order to fight their deception, it is important to consciously and subconsciously recognize that the Left’s heroes are not Chris Kyle or other patriotic American soldiers or warriors. The Left’s heroes are suicide bombers, Islamic rapists and serial killers, and Leftist rapists and mass murderers. It is important to realize that in your heart, even if you don’t exactly know why. It is what it should be. One society’s hero is another society’s enemy.
The people sitting on the fence may like to believe everyone is equal or that humanity has some kind of “rights” that make them immune from such as individual virtue, but I’ve determined that it is not so. Pick a side, or a side will be chosen for you. There are no neutrals in this war, and that includes people on the fence and the heroes of each faction.

Half way down the list.
The reason why I put this under the unconventional warfare category is that 5th Column fighters are not flying under the right flag, or even any flag.
