Her are the directions to the game that we see being played every day. You can see it all throughout history, and you can see it in today's world,
everywhere. This is 1984, my friends. This is divide and conquer. And it can be played from either side of the field, sustaining the momentum of the
process. As long as we hate each other, we'll never see the hand holding the strings. As long as the blade is at each other's throat, the strings
controlling us are safe to continue oppressing us. Turn the blade. Look up. See the strings. See the masters.
Open your eyes.
Step 1. Fear
Instill fear in the people by painting a number of them with dark colors. Demonize a select group. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Possible arrests and
harassment for fabricated wrongs or for small laws that were passed for that specific purpose.
Step 2. Assurance
Address the remaining people and assure them that they are special and not like the others, that they are better and more worthy. Underline the
differences and connect them to familiar ideas of good and evil. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Possible charities and programs for supporting the concept of
well-being and compassion being imparted by the message.
Step 3. Incite and Divide
Stage a conflict between the two groups. The enmity will be fueled by official statements, and frustration will be channeled into civilian strife. All
focus will be lost from the higher ups, and resultant anger and depression will be directed toward fellow citizens.
Step 4. Intervention
The authorities now have a reason to step in and apprehend/arrest/subdue at their discretion. Demonized parties will see the worst of it, and almost
all of them will see consequences. The "worthy" parties will now support the official stance due to negative emotions generated by step 3. Division is
Step 5. Elimination/Reprogramming
Authorities will use their power publicly to "secure" the "safety" of the nation or community, vacuuming up the rebellious and potentially dangerous
deviants and either reprogramming or ruining their lives. Simultaneously, impress upon the "worthy" a fabricated list of things to avoid in order to
stay "worthy". Fear of 'outsiders', and unity in worthiness, will both automatically lead civilians to swallow the whole thing. Threat eliminated.
Control restored. Power is established.
Rinse and repeat as needed.
