  •  SOP - It's called creating a frame (9+ / 0-)

    You justify your actions by creating a picture in peoples' minds that makes them seem reasonable, even inevitable.

    This is why all Occupy encampments are "health hazards" and "attracting criminal elements." This is why there are "reports" of wide scale drug use, rampant sex, etc. etc. - although they never seem to mention who is making these reports or what evidence they have to back them up.

    Call it information warfare, in which reality is always the first casualty, with credibility as collateral damage.

    "No special skill, no standard attitude, no technology, and no organization - no matter how valuable - can safely replace thought itself."
