Strategy: The 12 rules

1: Power is not only what we have, but what the enemy thinks we have.

2: Stick to what we know.   Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.

3:  Push the femnies out of their comfort zone.

4: Make the enemy live up to its own hype. Call them out on sexism, racism etc.

5: Ridicule works. It makes someone cower, but it does not persuade.

6: Choose in what way you will help – choose something fun. Contribute thought or activity or money.

7: Invent new ideas, new tactics.

8: You can come and go, but as a group we must keep the pressure on.

9: The threat or fear is often more damaging than the reality.

10: Bad behaviour from the other side can win the public to our side; people root for the underdog.

11: When you succeed at something have a next step

12: Individuals are more vulnerable than  institutions. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.
