Moles, Distortioners, and Shills
Moles and distortioners are clear examples of the infiltration aspect of subversive action. Decentralization allows them free room to roam.
When centralizers acquire power, they acquire wealth alongside it. They use this wealth to fund these infiltration tactics. Shills work around the clock providing subversive elements to shift the narrative and mindsets of a population. For example, on the average internet comment section you are likely viewing one normal individual posting, a few normal people responding, and dozens of shills trying to subvert a narrative.
Shills will subvert any argument by changing it. If it’s a good argument, they’ll attack the author or his background. They’ll post lies to distract from the information. They’ll change the subject. They’ll spark fights to distract from useful discourse. They’ll do whatever they have to do to change the narrative and make it seem as though public perception is against their target, even though they are the minority.
Perception is a huge thing. Centralizers have millions upon millions of dollars to subvert discourse and make us feel helpless and alone. Shills are paid to do this. It is a culture war and they have the centralization and finance to wage it.
They can even change the objective of what we’re fighting for through buying out influencers on our side. By turning them into shills.
Under every major online news article, under every major academic “research” study, under every poll, and in every video discourse, shills are constantly operating.
Let’s do some basic math. A million dollars could pay for 121,212 total hours of subversion online ($8.25/hour). If you hire 100 shills, that’s a little over 1,212 hours for each. Which is about 30 weeks’ worth of shilling for each shill (assuming a 40-hour work week). Which is full-time work for 7.5 months. Thus, a single million provides 100 shills a job for the majority of the year. One hundred shills working 40-hour workweeks could easily hit every single major news, media, and social media source online. This example is to show you how easy it would be for a single isolated class member to alter public opinion in their favor at a relatively low cost.
Now, recognize that we’re not dealing with only a single million dollars. The centralizers, their PACs, their subverted capitalistic companies, and their foreign sponsors are dealing with billions of dollars on an annual basis. This is the wealth by which they can use to subvert and change the truth. This is a level of wealth that most of us couldn’t even comprehend. That level of wealth to them is a minor expense in their pursuit of centralization. One shill is damaging. Now imagine the tens of thousands they have at their fingertips that barely impact their annual budget. That is what we are up against.
In smaller or fast-moving decentralized websites this completely changes the dialogue. Normal people are outnumbered by massive amounts. True public perception is hidden. Hilariously, many times, it is likely that when you see two individuals arguing online it is one shill versus another.
It’s easy to get discouraged from this information. But don’t dwell on it. Once you recognize these trends, you begin to spot it nearly immediately. Don’t let the “popular perception” fool you. It’s not popular at all. If it were, they wouldn’t need to pay hundreds of millions of dollars for shills to implant it everywhere. If their position was one of truth, they would not need shills to force everyone to digest the message. This is why we do not need shills. All we need is honest, courageous people to combat them.
Next up, moles. Moles are rather self-explanatory. The movement requires constant due diligence to ensure they do not infiltrate us. Anything said privately should be considered as if it were said publicly. Transparency and accountability are needed even in the beginning of the movement to avert moles. However, the problems with moles are well-known and documented. Distortioners are a more important subject to spend time on since they are less understood.
The distortioners are another beast entirely. Moles are bad; these guys are worse. They are moles with fangs. Distortioners hide within as if they are one of us. But instead of simply supplying the enemy with information or exposing private conversations like a mole, they are actively subverting our own people using their position.
Distortioners are individuals or groups that promote subversion while acting as though they are on our side. They push false flags that distort our positions. These false flags are usually very damaging, cunningly-devised, and easy to debunk. But they’re believable enough that many will fall for it.
What is the advantage of this? It is to make it look like our side is crazy or ill-informed. To make it look like we believe in conspiracy theories or that our positions aren’t valid because of a few crazy easily-debunked statements. It is useful to distort the public perception against our favor. It is narrative control.
For example, a distortioner could be a very prominent activist on our side that is “soft” at essential times. They are purposefully soft to make us complacent. They are there to distract and control public perception when the centralizers commit extreme actions. They can divert, justify, and alter our side’s response by being useful “plants” for the centralizers. Where we would fight, they would rather make us apathetic.
These can be major public political figures, news casters, talk show hosts, activists, and related functions. Any of them can distort public perception through their actions or words.
Distortioners are notorious for accepting “lesser” levels of degeneracy instead of what the current centralizers are pushing for. No degeneracy should be acceptable, but they’ll accept small amounts of it to slowly move the goalposts in the interest of the centralizers. They are the modern “conservatives” that have failed to conserve anything of value.
They will take audiences away from actual individuals fighting for change. In their place, they will create weaker followers that distract from the actual fight at our hands. Many times, their sole interest is personal profit, which is likely what lead them to being a distortioner in the first place.
Distortioners are likely similar in traits to shills. They are almost certainly planted purposefully and paid to do so. The problem is that shills are easy to spot and disregard with a little training. Whereas distortioners are more easily hidden. They can even infect the minds of very reputable agents on our side. They can impact our hivemind in ways that shills cannot. Distortioners change the very mindset and narrative of our own team. They make us lay down our weapons so the centralizers may pick them up and use them against us.
This is why it is impossible for a decentralized group to fight a centralized group. The shills, the media, the distortioners, the moles, the politburo, the isolated class, and everyone else in this group are centralized together against you. Against us. While all of us are decentralized and purposefully non-unified.
Distortioners working for our side don’t exist. The enemy has centralized news, agents, and institutions. Distortioners can’t exist within them because they are centralized. If they do not follow what the centralizers want, they would be expunged. Which means distortioners could never exist in a centralized entity. Decentralized methods are the only ones at risk of distortion. A decentralized entity can’t vet every single individual within their community as they can. They know they can infiltrate us easily, while it’s nearly impossible for us to do the same to them. This is yet another reason why we cannot beat the centralizers through decentralization. They will always find ways to infiltrate and overtake it.
Distortioners pretend to be on our side but are setting up a trojan horse just to have their own team come knocking in. To fight this epidemic, distortioners need to be pointed out at every corner. They need to be called out, shut down, and removed from positions of trusted influence. No different than what would happen to them had they attempted the tactics in a centralizer-controlled institution. Individuals in positions of trust that fall prey to the misinformation need to be reprimanded and educated on distortioners so they will be more careful next time. To beat them, we have to squeeze them out.
The first step to beating this constant cycle of political narrative shifting is recognizing that there are thousands of people that are paid a salary and benefits package to be shills and distortioners. They truly believe what they are fighting for. They exist and are constantly moving the narrative goalpost of our decentralized communities. You have to constantly be vigilant of their impact and false flags. You have to centralize your community where you can to prevent their spread.
Moles, distortioners, and shills often work in unison. The moles provide information to the distortioners who then present false flag ideas based off of the information. The institutions then use the distortioners to discredit the movement. Finally, shills come out to degrade and disrupt the conversation of anyone discussing the original position using the institutions discreditation as evidence. It’s all a chain. It all works together.
They are a very powerful force. And until our side starts to recognize their involvement, we will keep being prey to their actions.
