So I saw this elsewhere here on ATS. Thought I would Re-quote it to be put forth in purpose for example.
Usually, the revolutionary political organization will have two branches: one subterranean and illegal, the other visible and quasi-legitimate.
On the one hand, there will be activists – saboteurs, terrorists, arms runners, fabricators of explosive devices, operators of a clandestine press,
distributors of political pamphlets, and couriers to carry messages from one guerrilla sector to another, using the towns as communications centers.
On the other hand, there will be sympathizers and fellow travelers, those not really of the underground, operating for the most part within the law,
but sustaining the efforts of the activists, and, of themselves, accomplishing far more important tasks. The visible organization will, of course,
have invisible links with the revolutionary underground, and, through it, with the gorillas in the countryside. But it’s real work will be to serve
as a respectable façade for the revolution, a civilian front, or, as the Cubans called it, Resistencia civica, made up of intellectuals, tradesman,
clerks, students, professionals, and the like – above all, of women – capable of promoting funds, circulating petitions, organizing boycotts,
raising popular demonstrations, informing friendly journalists, spreading rumors, and in every way imaginable waging a massive propaganda campaign
aimed at two objectives: the strengthening and brightening of the rebel “image”, and the discrediting of the regime.

Ok, so here is the power base laid out. It refers not to organization as far as structure of command, but rather one of battle ground. It is a two
sided entity not limited and vulnerable by social stigma.

So, mind you that this is from gorilla type tactics applied to a fiscal revolution circa 1950´s. It's not applicable anymore as a tactic for valid,
ultimately honest dissent. It holds true now as a tactic for the opposition (Peace)

This entire part put on a digital playing field with the rules adapted to establish a virtual network or "towns".
All the support in a redundant and secure system that self enforces purpose and structure.
The spirit of subversion should not be translated over into the mix though. If it is a will for traitors to be routed, do not stand as the voice of
destruction in another tone.
I think it is better to be honest in these cases and not entertain the idea of hurting the nation , denomination, race, blood or cultural group you
may belong to and wish to better. Just defend what you came to defend. The attacks exist for you to learn and use to your purpose. That´s all.
The spirit of dissent should only be expressed for the absolutely necessary First change. Not the totality of its end result. If not the danger of
extremism is treaded upon all too precariously.
Small victories based on absolute truth, not depth of logic used to explain truth. Your adversary may have a better hold over "dark logic", that is
to say, looping self validating false truth. The only way out of validating his efforts in your destruction is to "be the Jedi". Sounds dumb huh,
It's insane to think a victory won, even when the field is yours. Not until the war is over can the warrior become something else. He is the wars
custodian, its axis even. He is the war, like his adversary is.
He uses the force of his conviction to truth to cut though the false truth with absolute truth. His adversary could be said to use the force of his
conviction to absolute false truth to cut through true truth,
Your methods are as much to your determent when you take a risk in every lie you tell. Be the Jedi. The heart that moved you to change the incorrect,
will guide you in the defense of the correct.
The rest is totally transferable. No need to interject my thought on that. It is self evident in its application.
