Over the past 90 years, virtually all potential oligarchs or tyrants have utilized the following six political stratagems, which do not require armed conflict, in order to permanently obliterate any opposition. They were first employed by Adolf Hitler and documented by renowned American psychoanalyst Dr. Walter C. Langer:
- Keep the public in a state of constant turmoil. Pre-identify favored groups by race, economic status, ideology, or religion and, through constant repetition by allies in the media and entertainment cabal, establish that any perceived disadvantage within those assemblages is solely the fault of another pre-identified and isolated group, particularly Jews, traditional Christians, and the capitalists.
- Never concede that there may be some good in your political enemy. State loudly and often that they are a permanent adversary because they are determined to oppress the favored groups identified in 1) above as well as being racist, avaricious, treasonous, etc. (i.e., the worst people on Earth). Thus, abrogation of their free speech privileges and their right to own firearms and to freely assemble is not only acceptable, but a necessity.
- Never miss an opportunity to repeatedly and loudly blame one’s political enemy for anything that goes wrong, regardless of how inane or unreasonable. Faux crises must be orchestrated as often as possible in order to blame the other side. Further, any natural disaster or any aggressive action by a foreign adversary must also be attributed to one’s political adversary.
- Never acknowledge or divulge that your side is at fault or wrong, regardless of the situation or issue.
- Never, under any circumstances, leave room for civil discourse regarding alternative societal or governmental policies by proclaiming that those promoting any alternative have a hidden treasonous agenda. Continually maintain the assertion as being irrefutable that a central government, in the hands of the enlightened, can resolve any issue and make life better.
- Finally, always utilize the ultimate tactic in promoting dogma or denigrating one’s opponent: the Big Lie. People will believe a big lie sooner than a little one, and if it is repeated frequently enough, people will sooner or later accept it as the truth. The fabricated dire consequences of so-called climate change, the contrived narrative of Donald Trump colluding with Russia, the myth of rampant white nationalism, and the illusion that this is a virulently racist nation are recent examples of this stratagem.
Even the least politically involved Americans can see that over the past two decades, the hierarchy of the American Left and its appendages as well as many elected officials in the Democratic Party have been shamelessly utilizing all these tactics.
