How to deceive

Be the 1st to vote.

I eat this stuff up:

Russian military theorist S.A. Komov …

… has written that RC [reflexive control] is a form of 0;intellectual” IW. He offered the following eleven types of intellectual IW for use against systems, people, alliances or forces in the field:

Distraction—during preparatory stages of combat operations, creating a real or imaginary threat against one of the most vital enemy places such as flanks and rear, forcing him to reevaluate his decisions to operate on this or that axis.

Overload—often manifested by sending the enemy a large amount of conflicting information.

Paralysis—creating the belief of a specific threat to a vital interest or weak spot.

Exhaustion—cause the enemy to carry out useless operations, thereby entering combat with expended resources.

—during preparatory stages of combat operations, force the enemy to reallocate forces to a threatened spot.

Divisive techniques—cause the enemy to believe he must operate in opposition to coalition interests.

Pacification—through a peaceful attitude and approach cause the enemy to lose vigilance.

Deterrence—create the impression of superiority.

Provocation—force enemy action advantageous to your side.

Suggestion—offer information that affects the enemy legally, morally, ideologically or in other areas.

Pressure—offer information that encourages society to discredit its own government.


Or this?

Precepts for and illusionism:

1. Exploitation of pattern recognition

2. Make the secret a lot more trouble than the seems that it’s worth

3. It’s hard to think critically when you’re emotionally engaged

4. Keep the trickery outside the frame of reference

5. To fool the mind combine at least two tricks at the same time

6. Nothing fools you better than the lie you tell yourself

7. If given a choice you believe you’ve acted freely

I always thought this list of techniques was pretty comprehensive. It’s fun to read a news story and see how many you can check off.…

The Bezmenov interview is great but the second time listening to it I began to question his own story. I have my doubts that his defection actually went down that way, and it’s interesting to see that he basically continued in propaganda in Canada. The interview itself could be called propaganda, though I tend to agree with it.

The parts on demoralization kind of changed my outlook on some things.

There is a shorter version like 7-8 minute version of the above video that really is the meat of his presentation.. I’ll try to find and post

Yes, Tom pointed that out too, on Simon’s latest interview.

This might also add to this discussion:
