Reminder that shills can be identified by trying to kill ideas with insubstantial responses that only contain accusations and insults.
or by misrepresenting the ideas in a negative fashion.
If they do not actually present arguments for why the idea is bad, their influence is to be countered, when you see them in a thread that presents an idea, bump the thread up, because the idea is likely to be a good one.
I've made a couple Idea threads, one for making our own media, one for creating documents that detail what we believe to be true, what our end goal is, how we plan to achieve our goal, the rules we agree to follow, and how others can be sure that we wont deviate from our plan or our rules, the last idea is simply the idea of taking the risk of meeting each other in real life at a pre-defined location and time, while also taking measure to mitigate the risks so that anons would feel comfortable enough to show.
Right now, the only things we've been doing it trying to educate people, but our message and the vagueness around both it and those who deliver it, chases people away, rendering us ineffective at our stated goal.
So my ideas are to make the message and everything around it clear:
- We write out our vision for an ideal country/society/world, and we do it in complete detail, completely describing everything from the ground up, even the most mundane and commonsense of details, and making every description as explicit and complete as possible so that there is no room for intentional misinterpretation.
Now people know what we plan to achieve and thus we are much less scary to the public.
- We write out our plan to achieve the society listed above, ensuring that is it described with as much detail and clarity as was given to the above, leaving no room for deliberate misrepresentation, so that they know how we seek to get to our goals.
Now we are even less scary, as they know what our plans are, and more importantly, what they are not.
- We write out a code of conduct for our followers to abide by, and the recommended punishments from failure to live up to the rules listed within the code.
Now we have quenched all three fears in the mind of the public, even if some can be convinced to refuse to believe that we are telling the truth, they can see the ideas presented as having value in themselves, and that's still a win for us.
The second idea, meeting up, has been posted so many times. The problem with the idea is that there is no threat to meeting up at an arranged location, date, and time, but shills have managed to scare anons into thinking there is one even though there is no reason to, they even got me with this until I started to actually think about it, that said, the shills tend to mass invade this type of thread every time it's made, it's obviously on the highest of priorities to keep us online, which means what we are currently doing is no threat to them, but going offline means that we would be surprised at how favorable things would turn out for us once we did so, right now it's not about avoiding the (non-existent) risks, and more about making anons feel safe enough to attend a meeting for the first time, once they attend, and see that there is no danger, this thing will snowball into something very powerful.
And that's the three cool ideas that shills hate.
