Okay, yeah, this is a weird thing to teach isn’t it? But I know you guys and while you can be so sharp you cut yourselves, you really, really suck at playing it dumb.
And you have to. You absolutely have to in some circumstances. It not only could save your life, it will sow confusion among the enemy.
Look, a great part of what you’re having to do is called a White Mutiny (no, it has nothing to do with race. It’s the opposite of Black Mutiny which is the kind that leaves the deck littered with bodies.) It can also be called “Irish Democracy” though that’s more complicated and involves things like paying people under the table, to starve the beast which is NOT entitled to your taxes. It also doesn’t come naturally to Americans. Though I suspect we’ll learn.
It was quite a shock to me, when I first read Have Spacesuit Will Travel to find that the IRS (and therefore, logically the Portuguese equivalent) could NOT require you to keep records. They couldn’t even require you to know how to read. And that you could in fact pay your tax bill in nickels, dimes and the odd penny.
Now, the IRS in the US has gotten into their own version of malicious compliance in responding to that sort of thing. You’re not forced to keep records – the government can’t even make you learn how to read! And many people don’t know how since the government got into education – but they an by default assume you owe them everything. When playing stupid games, make sure the stupid prizes are things you’re willing to risk.
However, connected to that: the government cannot require you to be smart. Nor do they have any reason to think you are. In fact, the default mode of lefties is to think that we are completely stupid, and that’s the only reason we don’t agree with them. To mangle a meme “Shiny. Let’s be morons.”
Right here, I want to stop and recommend that (in addition to the linked article, you find and read Comrade Don Camillo, which is a manual for subversion while surrounded. I linked it on Amazon.)
Depending on the circumstances, you can in fact be UNBELIEVABLY stupid, and they’ll probably still believe it.
They want you to write a confession? Ask for help spelling words, and then consistently misspell them. And I mean unreadably. Or confuse words with their close cousins. They want you to spell expected? Spell expel and refuse to understand what you did wrong.
This is actually very, very hard, so I recommend you practice it and play act it with a friend. In fact, I recommend you practice and play act all the techniques with friends.
Stupidity is very very difficult to do if you’re not stupid. It also is both infuriating and confusing to anyone trying to make you do something. It is said against stupidity the gods themselves strive in vain. These people aren’t gods. They’re really very naughty mental children.
If you read the article linked above, you see that stupidity also gives you the right to change your story/abilities and not be held to it. I mean sometimes he pretended not to know how to write, then he wrote, then he didn’t know how to write again. The thing is you run into this sort of thing with truly stupid people, and now we can do it, too.
Remember the attitude: very eager to learn, very impressed by the enemy – tug on forlock, yesssur – but a hopeless, bumbling fool.
They want you to sign something? Misspell your name. Or do weird handwriting. This too can be practiced.
They want you to tell them something? Ask for clarification. Then ask for clarification again. Then ask for clarification on the clarification. Rinse, repeat, wide eyed and just wanting to help, really, if they just explain this one simple thing.
Oh acquiring sudden religious mania and explaining to them “Doesn’t the good book say bend your knee to the superior man” (no fear of quoting scripture in vain. You just make up sh*t. They won’t know scripture if it bits them in the nads.) Or, “I really want to sign this confession, but doesn’t John 578 say “never affix your name to document you don’t compass with your mind”? So can you explain it to me again?”
Because they believe we’re all religious maniacs, stupid and (inexplicably) Southern. I can’t do accents to save my life, but if you can, practice your Southern accent. That way if you DON’T normally have one, and they videotape you confessing to something, we will KNOW.
One side step of this, and honestly very good at saving your life in an emergency is to act completely and utterly nuts.
Look, don’t do this to a mob. You scare a mob too much, they will kill you. But if it’s just one or two people and they’re stronger/better armed than you? Being utterly insane will make them leave you alone or run away. I speak from experience. I’ve used it to make feral homeless run away.
Again, this sort of nonsense doesn’t come easy, so you might want to practice shouting “Butterflies, all the dragons are here. You did it. You did it. It was you!” If you can make spittle fly, it’s perfect.
An extension of this, and the reason that I want you to read Comrade Don Camillo is to make them explain their beliefs. No, I’m serious, fun for all ages. The caveat is the you probably can’t do it in your own persona, and why someone’s suggestion for creating a bunch of fake online personas is great. This falls under “sowing doubt and dissention” in their ranks, while being perfectly normal.
You might need to do this in person, and of course, then you have to trust they don’t know you have degrees or whatever, because you really have to play “dumb and willing.”
Fortunately, you’ll be helped by the left’s certainty that not only are we all dumb, but that everything including colleges teaches as it did in the 50s. So they won’t realize we’ve heard their shiboleths and code words before. I do however suggest playing this online, under an assumed ID before you try it in person. It is a technique and ought to be practiced.
Say they accuse you of white supremacy. You act all confused and tell them you don’t know what it is. When they explain you ask them how this can be since you are not white/are not married to a white person/don’t even know why THEY think whites are superior. If they say “educate yourself” ask how. If they recommend books say “Well, that seems like a difficult read. Can you explain it to me, in your own words?” When they explain you say “Are you saying that people should think whites are superior because—”
Make them unpack the insane assumptions behind their actions/doctrines. This btw, is difficult, because you’re going to ask them “isn’t that what Hitler believed?” and that will just stop the conversation and make them suspect you, without it really going into their brain and wreaking havoc. Instead try “Isn’t that a belief from long ago? That people are born good or bad, and only good people should have babies, or something? Something like the Eugene theory, I think?”
BTW this also can work to deprogram teens who have gone wrong. They think you’re a dumbass, anyway, it’s part of being a teen. So play to it and make them “educate” you, and in the process sow doubts in their heads. Be the hopelessly out of touch parent/grandparent, and ask unbelievably dumb questions.
That’s all for today, my friends. Go practice being obstinately, bottomlessly, brilliantly dumb.
