In the year 500 B.C., a Chinese Warrior and philosopher by the name of Sun Tsu wrote a small treatise entitled The Art of War, in which he said:
The Freedom Academy is a school for teachers and activists to better understand themselves and their opponents. It is a place where freedom warriors can study the strengths of individualism, the weaknesses of collectivism, and the strategies used against them. Its purpose is to prepare students to become influential in the power centers of their respective countries and then to use that influence to shape public policy in favor of personal and global freedom.
If a man knows himself and knows his opponent, he need not fear a hundred battles. If he knows himself but not his opponent, for every victory, he will suffer a defeat. If he knows neither himself nor his opponet, he will suffer defeat in every battle.
The Academy provides training in such subjects as the origin of human rights, the proper function of government, the function of a free market, the necessity of a value-based monetary system, the dangerous influence of secret societies, defending against propaganda and mind control, parliamentary procedure, the basics of leadership, the basics of debate and public speaking, how to run a political campaign, how to deal with the media, how to form an ad hoc committee, how to organize a public event, etc. These subjects will be taught initially as on-line courses. Eventually, there will be live seminars and workshops in the field. Standards will be high, and students will not be certified without mastery of the subjects.
Since the Academy is now at the earliest stages of organization, this program has begun at a modest level, consisting primarily of offering materials on the Internet. As funding permits the addition of personnel, it will expand to include Internet study courses and regional schools with hands-on training by live instructors. The following items are the humble beginning of our training materials.
Revolutionary Parliamentarianism: The strategy used by collectivists to convince the majority they are hopelessly outnumbered and that the loss of their freedom is of their own choosing (the Pincers Strategy).
How is it possible to convince people to deny their own judgment and embrace group-think? Here is the answer. Demagogues know the technique well, and we must be on our guard against it. Brasscheck 2010 Jan 11
Take this quiz after reading The Creature from Jekyll Island. It will really test your knowledge.
How collectivists create their own opposition - and how not to be fooled by it.
How collectivists use the Diamond Tactic to sway public meetings - and how to thwart them.
How collectivists use the Delphi Technique to create group consensus at public meetings - and how to thwart them.
More about the Delphi Technique to manipulate public meetings - and how to overcome it.
Copenhagen: Agitators disrupt a meeting of critics of the global-warming myth and deny them an opportunity to speak. Lord Monckton says the agitators acted the same as Hitler's brown shirts – and he is correct. Defenders of liberty must learn how to counter such tactics. Had pro-freedom activists in the room been equally organized and prepared for action, free speech would have been restored. Prison Planet 2009 Dec 10
The Freedom Academy will require a great deal of design and construction. Volunteers who are experts in their respective fields, including the administration of on-line courses, are needed now to make this program a reality.
