Divide and Conquer...
Divide by RACE, pitch the blacks against the whites, the natives against the non natives, the east against the west.
Divide by AGE, pitch the young against the old, the boomers vs the hipsters, the babies against the abortionist.
Divide by ECONOMICS, pitch the rich against the poor, the entitled against the workers, the middle class against the rest.
Divide by POLITICS, pitch the left against the right, the capitalist against the socialist, the anarchist against the communistic.
Divide by HEALTH, pitch the frail against the healthy, the fear mongers against the conspirators, the logical against the emotional, use the pandemic to it’s full fear factor.
Divide by MASKING, shame people who do, shame people who do not. Make it required by law even though loads of evidence state otherwise.
Divide by RELIGION, Christians are the current targets. Shame them for their beliefs, force them to “bake the cake”.
Divide by Vaccines, make the un-vaccinated second class citizens, shame them for their “selfishness”, generate fake hate between the sides.
Divide by GEOGRAPHY, big dirty urban vs hillbilly rural, make them hate each other for all their various differences, instead of common beliefs.
Divide by FEAR, keep the public afraid of anything and everything. A citizenship shaking in fear mongering of all types is less likely to come together and fight the true threat.
Divide by the PAST, stir up the hate, make it personal, offer rewards for the past transgressions than none of the living experienced to keep the hate alive.
The can be NO balance, races must hate each other although they rarely do. Ages cannot work together, although they have for eons, the rich can’t help the poor and the poor can’t help themselves, although one can rise above being poor and the rich do share their wealth. The left hates the right and the right hates the left, there is no compromise, although the best times have been achieved through balance and compromise.
Make sure the healthy are shamed for not protecting themselves, or protecting everything else by their personal actions, even though true science proves neither. You’re an idiot if you don’t mask, but only idiots wear masks, but a personal choice makes the most sense. You must be vaccinated, but the cure has caused more damage than all past cures combined.
The city sucks with the most homeless and crime, but those rural rednecks are a threat to the nation, but the nation is great because we have had both to support each other. Make sure and drag up the past as something evil and dangerous to the present. Erase the history to protect the future, although the history will be repeated without the knowledge of the past.
But most important of all is divide by FEAR, fear of national security, fear of health, fear of the future, fear of the past, fear of the government, fear of your neighbor. You must continue to be afraid, very afraid, and the government will come to your rescue. However, that “rescue” will be complete control of your life, your travel, your money, and eventually your mind.
Divide and Conquer, Divided We Fall.
What will it take to become “United We Stand” again?
