Title :

Anatomy Of Your Enemy

10 easy steps to create an enemy and start a war:
Listen closely because we will all see this weapon used in our lives.
It can be used on a society of the most ignorant to the most highly educated.
We need to see their tactics as a weapon against humanity
and not as truth.

This is how to create an enemy
This is how to start a war
This is how to create an enemy!

First step: Create the enemy. Sometimes this will be done for you.

Second step: Be sure the enemy you have chosen is nothing like you.
Find obvious differences like race, language, religion, dietary habits
fashion. Emphasize that their soldiers are not doing a job, they are
heartless murderers who enjoy killing.

Third step: Once these differences are established continue to reinforce
them with all disseminated information.

Fourth Step: Have the media broadcast only the ruling party's information.
This can be done through state run media. Remember, in
times of conflict all for-profit media repeats the ruling party's information.
Therefore all for-profit media becomes state-run.

Fifth step: Show this enemy in actions that seem strange, militant, or
different. Always portray the enemy as non-human, evil, a killing machine.


Sixth step: Eliminate opposition to the ruling party. Create an "Us versus Them"
mentality. Leave no room for opinions in between. One that does not
support all actions of the ruling party should be considered a traitor.

Seventh step: Use nationalistic and/or religious symbols and rhetoric to
define all actions. This can be achieved by slogans such as "freedom loving
people versus those who hate freedom." This can also be achieved by the
use of flags.

Eighth step: Align all actions with the dominant deity. It is very effective to
use terms like, "It is god's will" or "god bless our nation."

Ninth step: Design propaganda to show that your soldiers have feelings, hopes,
families, and loved ones. Make it cleat that your soldiers are doing a duty;
they do not want or like to kill.

Tenth step: Create and atmosphere of fear, and instability and then offer the
ruling party as the only solutions to comfort the public's fears.
Remembering the fear of the unknown is always the strongest fear.


We are not countries.
We are not nations.
We are not religions.
We are not gods.
We are not weapons.
We are not ammunition.
We are not killers.
We will NOT be tools.

Mother Fucker
I will NOT die!
I will NOT kill!
I will NOT be your slave!
I will NOT fight your battles!
I will NOT die on your battlefield!
I will NOT fight for your war!
I am NOT a fighter!
