Why dont we stop the circle jerk for a minute and ask some questions?
I had planned to talk about this at our PATCON but what the fuck now is as good a time as any.
Lets divide the terrain into three segments:
Now as have said in other posts where do most of us live?
Urban and Suburban. That’s most of the US not FREEFOR specifically.
Look at the voting for those terrain types and this will give you a good idea of the political ideology predominate in these areas.
We can condense this down simplistically into the following
Urban = progressive Free Shit Army and the top ruling elitist
Suburban = mix of all groups
Rural = conservative to libertarian small government types
Now this is not a scientific survey it’s a generalization.
If you look at this terrain and the inhabitants you can begin to formulate an assessment. The Urban inhabitants cannot be convinced that their positions are wrong. They do not put any weight into the immorality of government purposes and methods. The Rural inhabitants don’t need to be convinced because even though many of them do leech off of others via farm subsidies and such when those dry up they will be just fine getting along on their own. It is the suburban inhabitants that must be convinced that the current system is unsustainable. They must be convinced to get off the fence and make the changes that need to be made. When the battle lines are drawn they will fall right in the middle of that suburban metro area on a house to house basis.
So how do we address the fence sitters?
We must demonstrate to them that the government does not have their best interests in mind. We must demonstrate that government only has the power that we let it have over us. That is our strategic goal. To clearly define the illegitimacy of government. The second strategic goal is to replace that government with a system that more closely shelters the classic liberties of the citizens. A system founded on the values of the DoI.
Those are broad strategic goals and from here on out it has to be a little more specific to your AO.
The Operational constraints that you stay within are to focus activity to achieve the strategic goals. Currently those constraints should be limited to Sustainment and Shaping operations. They should prohibit the initiation of deadly force (combat operations). These constraints serve to guide the Operational goals since FREEFOR has no upper level leadership to establish intent and the constraints.
So we can make some general operational goals that do not pertain to a specific area:
– Gather intel on local areas.
– Build networks with other local groups.
– Establish supply chains.
– Establish safe houses and a network of escape.
– Conduct direct actions that shape the battle space and support the strategic goals.
– Control the message.
That’s as far down as we can go without getting more area specific. Those operational guidelines should be used to develop the tactics in your tool box.
Right now given these constraints none of what has been discussed in this thread would be a viable response.
As I have said however we may cross the line that makes those viable tactics.
For example, let us suppose that a suburban inhabitant is falsely raided by the OPFOR. Their current philosophy is not know but FREEFOR can utilize the incident to further its Strat and OP goals. FREEFOR can begin an escalating campaign of response to the incident. Beginning with low level tactics like flyers and graffiti. As the campaign builds feedback from the local inhabitants can be judged. If sufficient outraged is built then a direct action could be undertaken towards the OPFOR that initiated the raid. If the raid was particularly violent or resulted in a death then the action taken could be violent and destructive.
Right now efforts would be made to insure that no loss of life occurs but in the future the outrage may be sufficient that those efforts could be reduced.
Okay lets discuss….
Since 9/11, the U.S. Government has engaged in a multibillion-dollar effort to construct a domestic intelligence network for the ostensible purpose of combating terrorism, criminal activity and violent extremism. One of the central components of this system is the network of “fusion centers” that have sprung up around the country over the last several years. These entities integrate local law enforcement with a state’s police force, Department of Justice, or Office of Emergency Management and are designed to facilitate law enforcement intelligence activities throughout the jurisdiction, providing federal authorities access to local information and databases, while simultaneously allowing federal agencies to disseminate classified intelligence materials to local authorities. There are almost always federal representatives present in local fusion centers and Secretary of Homeland Security Napolitano has recently testified that DHS is “committed to having an officer in each fusion center.” Most fusion centers also work with representatives of the private sector, particularly those industries related to so-called “critical infrastructure and key resources.”
Due to past examples of fusion centers vastly overstepping their original mandates, including monitoring political events, bumper sticker preferences and even constitutionally-protected protest activities, many civil-rights organizations have worked to monitor fusion centers and their activities. However, public scrutiny has proved difficult in most cases as the majority of fusion centers operate in a highly secretive manner without revealing who works for them, what government agencies they work with or what their basic capabilities are. Many lack websites or any sort of public presence and information about their activities is often unavailable from official sources. There is no national authority overseeing their activities and many fusion centers even lack basic privacy policies concerning the collection of information on law-abiding citizens. Some states have even worked to exempt fusion center activities from public records requests. In fact, the majority of fusion centers have failed to even identify their most basic attribute: their physical location. Instead, many fusion centers simply provide a mailing address that leads to a post office box or generic government building. Some fusion centers do not even provide an address.
Public Intelligence has acquired a dataset that identifies the actual physical locations of nearly all of the 72 DHS-recognized fusion centers operating in the country today. The information, which includes physical addresses, phone numbers, as well as email addresses for all of the fusion centers, is believed to have been compiled and distributed throughout the Homeland Security Information Network, a government information portal for “information sharing and collaboration between federal, state, local, tribal, territorial, private sector, and international partners engaged in the homeland security mission.” Given the incomplete nature of information distributed previously by EPIC, the ACLU, and other groups attempting to document fusion center activities, this information is of great importance for working towards transparency in an area of domestic surveillance that remains largely unreported.
