...marshal me to knavery. Let it work,
For ’tis the sport to have the engineer
Hoist with his own petard; and ’t shall go hard
But I will delve one yard below their mines
And blow them at the moon. O, ’tis most sweet
When in one line two crafts directly meet. -Hamlet Act 3, Scene 4
To bring a knave to his knees through the use of the knave's own tricks and tools is the height of elegant paybacks.
Let me explain why I am bring this up now
There are corners of the internet where you can go and listen to conservatives chomping at the bit. They are ready for things to get festive, even eager.
Now, perhaps they are trolls or agents provacateur. Maybe they are just madder than Hades and want to make others hurt. The risk with this kind of blather is that it almost starts to sound reasonable if you listen to it too long. It is like being surrounded by kids who say "baffroom" or always use the word "seen". After a while it almost sounds right.
There are many problems with acting on those impulses. From a conflict standpoint the main problem is that you are playing the script as written by the other side. You have become their tool.
What do you think the general conclusions that the majority-in-the-middle will jump to if a truck-load of the 80-to-90 IQ types get mowed down? Will it serve OUR long-term purposes or theirs?*
So, what tricks and tools am I referring to?
The illusion of cause-and-effect
"Ain't nobody got hurt cause insurance gunna pay dem" (Rioters)
Making stuff disappear with software (Dominion)
Suppose the Lefties decide to shut down the Pennsylvania Turnpike and paralyze Pittsburgh.
Further, suppose the AG/DA decide to play catch-and-release.
Now, suppose conservatives responded by executing denial-of-service attacks on EBT accounts and the "Help Me" line for EBT problems.
The Italians LOVED Mussolini because he made the trains run on time. The low-IQ tools love big government because big gov has their back. An attack on EBT cards, or something similar, drives a wedge between big gov and the useful idiots.
If nonproductive people stop working people from being able to work and earn a paycheck; then they can be trained to expect their EBT card to stop working. The sauce that is good for the goose is even better for the gander. It would only take a few repetitions before Antifa types (usually college educated and less dependent on EBT cards) are getting their heads cracked by the BLM types (who live closer to the edge).
Isn't that a much happier outcome than the most obvious role scripted by the other side?
A clean conscience
The best thing is that we can do it with a clean conscience because the Progressives showed us that screwing with software is fair game.
They also informed us that as long as the EBT accounts can be accessed EVENTUALLY, then nobody got hurt. Just like small businesses getting paid by insurance.
*Let me make the distinction between hunting and self-defense. If goblins invade your house, then whack-them-and-stack-them. If they threaten to beat you or beat your wife (who considering the age of most of my readers might have osteoporosis) then terminate them with no remorse. But don't go hunting.
