Outmanuevering the Herd

: June 14, 2018

Compared to other people who touch hot button political issues and blog I:
1) Focus more on abstract concepts, theories. ideologies etc. This enables new angles and twists.
2) Take more shots at the audience, almost playing heel. For instance if the platform is facebook, then jabs will be made at “cliques’ of friends.
3) Make more effort to detach from the group and blaze my own path, almost like a band performing on stage more than a populist movement.
4) Focus more on the technical side of things and less on again, the populist feeling.

These characteristics contribute to the ability to spin and differentiate. To show an example, I am making blog articles viewing corporate monopolies as “the big problem” and the actual Government as “the little problem.” The clear trend is to defend the free market and attack the Government as an oppressor, but my “disruption” goes against the grain and gets people thinking that maybe these corporations are at the center of the erosion of our free speech and “Hessianization” of our military. This was possible only because I drew ideological conclusions and knew how to disrupt instead of follow the crowd and didn’t enter into a bandwagon popularity contest.

The summary is that I shake up the group instead of follow the leader. Those are some “technical” reasons. If you wanted to be my friend but didn’t realize I was a clever shaker, I guess I gotta say you picked the wrong person. Or maybe you did, and you’re shaking me back (I doubt that).

Now keep in mind that even though I experiment and shake I also stand up for the really important things. For instance when it’s popular to laugh at dead Iraqis, I’ll be the person to stand up and call propaganda instead of jumping on the bandwagon. This is just one example.

Somewhat due to this “style” I make no effort to advertise or promote my content because I do not want to be a slave to the herd. However, eventually promotion will have go occur, whether by me or by others.
