All well and good.
But just think if the big smarties in the FBI Deep State Coup had followed the same rules Joey Baggadonuts and his LCN associates followed up until the Eighties:
– NO PHONES. Even pay phones can be tapped. Important meetings are held face to face at locations that are hard to surveil, during a walk-and-talk after everyone shook surveillance en route to the meet point.
– NOTHING written down. Ever.
– NO ONE looped in w/o the say-so of a trusted associate, who has vouched for the new guy with his very life.
– NO EXCEPTIONS to the rule above, both as to loop-ins and what happens when the guy you said was OK turns out to be a rat.
– NO COOPERATION WITH THE AUTHORITIES UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES: Your family might or might not get help from the organization while you are in the bag, but you do not ever talk to the Man, lest you make yourself into the most-hated of creatures: a Rat.
– NO MERCY AND NO ESCAPE FOR RATS: Snitches are bitches that wind up in ditches. Usually after some gentle blowtorch work, both to help the cheese-eater recall exactly what he told to whom and pour encourager les autres. See also the noted monograph, “Drano and its use on mucosal tissue in counterintelligence interrogations”.
– NO FAMILY INVOLVEMENT: Someone in the life never has a spouse or kids in the life. Makes it too easy to squeeze Tommy No-Shoes if wifey or Little Tina gets a ticket to women’s prison.
– NO WAY OUT: There is no retirement plan. You stay in the life ’til you die or you become so screwed-up so as to be nonfunctional to the organization.
The place where The Elites are weakest is in meatspace.
The place where the global intel crowd and the meat eaters are weakest is in meatspace.
The place where the Red cadres, their enforcers, and their supporters live is in meatspace.
People live and die in analog.
Can you be smarter than the upper echelons of the FBI have been over the past two years?
