According to Mao, Giap, T. E. Lawrence and most other revolutionaries who have used asymmetrical warfare as a primary means of resistance against an out of control, self-serving government which does not give a damn about the needs of the people, there is one building block to a revolution that cannot be ignored. To ignore this factor is to doom your uprising to a failed venture. And with what the globalists have planned for us, failure is not an option.
The Most Important Weapon In Today’s Revolution
The alternative media is the single most important weapon that freedom-loving Americans have at their disposal. I say again, the alternative media is at the vanguard of the freedom movement. If there is not a meaningful alternative media, the country will free fall into the abyss of tyranny and this country’s emerging “Stepford Wives Syndrome” will continue unabated under the influence of the mainstream media.
Winning the Hearts and Minds of the People
In Phase one of a guerrilla war, the rebel forces must earn the popular support of the people. Historically, the guerrilla forces earn the population‘s support by disseminating and distributing propaganda and attacking the organs of government through relentless exposure and degradation. Failure to win the hearts and minds of the people will absolutely result in the failure of your movement and today, this means the probable death of 90% of humanity (see the Georgia Guidestones).
Americans may despise him, but Mao was one of the most successful guerrilla leaders in world history. Mao once said “That the richest source of power to wage war lies in the masses of the people” (Mao Tse-Tung: 1975, 232). At some point, guerrilla forces must depend on local inhabitants for food, protection against betrayal, obtaining new recruits and to gather intelligence about the government’s forces and intent.
Mao taught us that all revolutions are based upon class warfare. Therefore, we must recruit the ranks of the downtrodden to our liberty restoration cause. Do not waste your time on the well-to-do, they are the collaborators, the Tories, because their lives are working and most of these status symbol chasers do not have the insight to see that the party is not going last forever. Therefore, the unemployed, the underemployed, the foreclosed upon (talk about MERS), the sick (Obamacare) and every other downtrodden group is our potential ally. If you have access to gangsters and juvenile delinquents, take a page from Mao and Hitler’s Brown Shirts and let them know who is responsible for their struggles. Many historically under-represented groups make for good recruiting prospects. They are more likely to believe fact-based conspiracy theories, because they, or their ancestors, have been the victims of various conspiracies through prejudice, degradation and even murder.
Think like Mao and recruit people to the cause of liberty for whom the system is not working.
T. E. Lawrence
T.E. Lawrence (i.e. Lawrence of Arabia) once said about his efforts that “The printing press is the greatest weapon in the armory of the modern commander.” In our more modern day struggles, Lawrence would likely say that a rebel in today’s world might substitute the Internet for the printing press.
The globalists control about 95% of the media through five corporations. They own all the top newspapers and they control almost all radio. However, they do not yet totally control the internet and independent radio stations. And most all, the globalists do not control your vocal cavity.
Ninety percent of our population is to some degree, hypnotized by the mainstream media. Based upon Congressional approval ratings. While ironically, it is also true that about 90% of the country does not like nor care for this government. If T. E. Lawrence were advising American Patriots today, he would clearly tell the members of the alternative media that there is a fertile, yet unconvinced vast majority of the public that could be won over with the right approach.
On one hand, the sheep are buying guns in record numbers but they are very slow to see the conspiracies that most of us know all too well. There is a psychological gap between the mantra instilled in the masses by the mainstream media that there are no valid conspiracy theories, and their profound mistrust and unhappiness with their government. We, in the know, need to bridge this gap if we are to be successful in winning the hearts and minds of the people.
The masses only see the government as the problem. They do not know of the international bankers that have bought off our elected officials. They do not know that the Monsanto’s and the Goldman Sachs’ have installed their people in key administrative, non-elected oversight positions in banking and finance and this is how they get away with plundering and murder. In other words my fellow Americans, the vast majority of our countrymen do not know who the real enemy is. It is up to us to teach them. Because when we, the dissidents who are on the Red List, are fighting for survival, it is the masses that will feed us, hide us, join us or betray us. This battle has to be won right now!
It is time to use a little judo on the globalists and begin to use their momentum against them. The ruthless Nazi, Joseph Goebbels, once said that;
“If you tell a lie big enough lie and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.“
We in the alternative media need to engage in a juxtaposition. The globalists have brainwashed the public using the Goebbels’ philosophy. It is time to do the same in order to free the minds of the masses. However, we do not need to lie like the globalists, we need to repeat the truth in every venue that we have access to, over and over and over. We need to employ catchy, memorable slogans.
“Congress is bought and paid for by the Bankers on Wall Street.”
“The Federal Reserve has stolen 97% of every dollar you make.” (show the people the charts).
“Every move you make, every breath you take, the NSA is watching you.”
“Speak kindly about the government or the IRS will audit you.”
OK, I confess to not being a very good propagandist, but you get the idea. There are those of you that are out there that are clever and you need to put that talent to work. We need slogans that we can repeat and repeat and repeat until the people cannot get our sayings out of their head.
One final thought about T. E. Lawrence, he would clearly advise all of you to start a blog. Start broadcasting on an internet venue and begin to discourage everyone you know from watching the MSM news. Remind people there are real reasons on why CNN’s ratings are in the toilet. Ask people why they would form their world view from a gnome like Wolf Blitzer. Remember, our voices need to begin to drown out the opposition because our lives will someday depend on it.
Viet Cong Architect Vo Nguyen Giap
The architect of the Viet Cong Resistance, Vo Nguyen Giap, once said that the war against the French, and later against the Americans was a “People’s War.” The center of gravity is always the people. This isn’t only the center of gravity of the enemy but also the center of gravity of one’s own forces. The “hearts and minds” of the people decide the victor in any “People’s War”.
Giap further proclaimed that, “The war of liberation of the Vietnamese people proves that, in the face of an enemy as powerful as he is cruel, victory is possible only by uniting the whole people within the bosom of a firm and wide national united front based on the worker-peasant alliance.” (The Military Art of People’s War, p. 97-98).
Giap tells us that fear of the oppressor is a strong ally. Tell your neighbors about DHS and their 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition and there 2700 armored personnel carriers. Speak about the Civilian Inmate Labor Program. Let people know they can snatched off the street without due process under the NDAA. Talk to you friends about the FEMA camps and the Wackenhut buses that will take you there along with the trains containing shackles. Ask your neighbors how we can pay off $240 trillion dollars in unfunded mandates? Make your friends see that a currency collapse is imminent.
It is time to scare the excrement out our fellow countrymen because these threats are real and they are life-threatening for the majority. Fact-based fear and repetition of the message are our best friends in terms of driving the public to our side. Subsequently, when Phase Two of the guerrilla war commences, we have the support of the people.
Giap and his colleagues were brilliant at couching their words in such a way as to demonize his enemies, thus drawing closer support from the people. Notice his use of the term “The People’s War.” The “people” already resent the elite because they know that they are not and never will be part of the elite.
Average people understand that the golden rule is based upon those who have the gold, get to make the rules. Giap was a master at turning envy into resentment and then into hatred. People emote before they act, appeal to their emotions.
Remember, the use of the term “people” builds a sense of collective identity that is needed in every successful revolution. Therefore, fellow patriots, every word coming out of your mouth must speak of these problems in the collective. It is us vs. them, not black vs. white, gay vs. straight, citizen vs. illegal. The latter conflicts are the creation of the globalists to distract us while they continue to enslave us. This is class warfare and you need to pound the message into people’s head that the leaders of the major corporations pay no tax and you work until June paying off your debt to this criminal government.
If you are talking to your friends about baseball, the weather and your child’s report card, do not fail to drop in a zinger about the globalists. In the words of Winston Churchill, “Never, never, never give up.”
The Lesson From Vietnam From An American Expert
The late Colonel David Hackworth, a highly decorated Vietnam war veteran, once told PBS that he knew very early on, that if the US was going to win the Vietnam War, they had to win the people. The French made the mistake of ignoring the people and the Americans committed the same mistake. The Viet Minh and later the Viet Cong won the hearts and the minds of the people and thus, won each guerrilla conflict.
Hackworth related the following metaphor in his PBS interview, “The guerrilla is the fish and the people are the water. If you want to kill the fish, you remove the water. If you want to kill the guerrilla, you remove the people, because they find all kinds of assistance, medical help, they put out the booby-traps, they provide the intelligence and they provide the trail-watchers. They are the sea in which the guerrilla swims.”
When you meet resistance from your family and friends, tell them you understand their skepticism, but that you are fighting for their children who have no future. Perceived threats against our kids always move us one step closer to action. Never antagonize and belittle your skeptics, we need everyone. Every person is important and every person counts, so be kind to the naysayers, they will come around when they become hungry.
Be the fish, move the through the people like water, shake their hands, smile and remind them you are there for them and soon they will understand what you are speaking about. I also like the Johnny Appleseed analogy. Drop seeds where ever you go and you will eventually change the landscape.
You do not have to do everything that is written in this article. You can start by doing one thing at a time. But do it often and do it well. It is just not us that will die if we fail, our children truly have no future under these globalist monsters.
Part three will focus on what actually happens in a guerrilla war after the rebels have won the hearts and minds of their countrymen.
