there's more than one way to skin the truth. a multi-pronged attack is the order of the day.
nothing is cut and dry, black and white in the info war.
because, as goebbels or some other expert lying arsehole said, "repeat a lie loudly and often enough, and it will be accepted as truth". (not
verbatim, but that's the jist.)
this is the type of disinfo agent i see the most.
there are the fringe type disinfo agents.... express some theory so outlandish you'd have to be REALLY open minded or completely crazy to buy into.
(even if the theory is TRUE, lol!!) the "well poisoners".
there are the similiar but watered down "doubt sowers". this type will appear to agree with you at first, but will use spin to sway arguments
CLOSER to the lie.
there are just plain folk who are thinking aloud and appear to be one of the above two, or one of the next.
the "authoritarian" uses published theories and "facts" and will not recognize any fact or reasoning that disagrees with it.
and, then, there are straight out liars that will state bold-faced lies as facts (usually uncheckable facts).
i don't want to think about it too much, 'cause it makes me feel dirty to get into the mind of "the enemy", but, things are just simply not that
simple in the infowars. if you want to get into the trenches, you must trust no one, and that means not even yourself, sometimes. keep the "truth"
as a fuzzy haze of probability and plausibility, and only hold onto "facts" which are cross-correlated from different sources.
and, ROCK ON!!!
