It is a very useful surveillance tool.
- confuse and distract,
- identify monitor and delete independent thinkers (ie. trouble-makers),
- distract by talking about everything but $ (If it doesn’t jingle, it doesn’t count),
- encourage individual and group despair, passivity and division,
- “vampirize” the genuine credibility of franchisee members,
- use a Good cop/Bad cop trick to avoid cash flow issues,
- create a paper trail that is false (control of minutes, broadcast emails), and
- debase, degrade and whore-out language and pervert/invert reality via lies and bullshit.
These elite-based techniques are centuries old and have been effective.
With some creativity, email and smart phones, the 1% is frozen in fear.
