We live in a society where image guides substance. I don't like saying that, but it is true. Therefore, the world is now guided by who controls the narrative. So, I will tell you this now.....The first step in a modern movement is to define and uncover your opponent. By doing so, you have taken over the narrative. The second step in a modern movement is to stay on top of the narrative. This means, in an America with a very short attention span, doing things creative and switching up your targets. Essentially, you have to be interesting and, to some degree, entertaining while making a point.
Occupations always end....and the message usually ends with them.
Protests often lead to violence.....and violence will destroy any goodwill that you have developed.
Marches come and go quickly......your enemy simply waits you out.
And, boring is....well boring. You can't do the same thing over and over again broadcast your message to the world. A modern movement lives and dies by the press. Again, I don't necessarily agree with it, but that's reality.
So, small, interesting, intrusive, provocative, entertaining, and tactical maneuvers will make national television and will percolate through middle America.
Your target is your message.....eg.FOX NEWS, 740 Park Avenue (Koch Residence), Goldman Sachs, Dick Cheney, Eric Cantor, Karl Rove, etc.
Yes, some of this is already occurring, but it needs to become a MAINSTAY of your movement. You should, to paraphrase Voltaire, strive to be interesting above all else. Continuous, low grade, harassment, psy-ops kinda stuff will provoke your opponent into a disproportionate response.....controversial remarks, pepper spray, police brutality, shouting at you, etc.....and this is your objective.
But, I am warning you now, you will never gain momentum until you TAKE DOWN FOX NEWS. You must be removed from their doorsteps. You must force their pundits to say something so absurd that Glenn Beck would retract it. Rupert Murdoch must become the face of the 1%. Relentless, you must be, for until you drive a wedge between the people and the propagandist, the "truth" tends to bend in your favor.
If you protest at the entrances to Fox News (1211 Avenue of the Americas) you will have made a statement you could had not made in a year of occupations.
