Recommended Posts

Obamabot will see themselves all over here:

 

1) Aggressive/continuous recruitment by leadership/members

 

2) Loyalty oaths/membership applications/agreements/contracts required

 

3) Minimum money/resource/labor/attendance commitments required

 

4) Charismatic/charming leadership personality (by one person, or an impenetrable core group)

 

5) Autocratic/authoritarian leadership style (by one person, or an impenetrable core group)

 

6) Top-down/hierarchical/pyramidal command/control structure sometimes all the way down to the individual level (cf. shepherding movement)

 

7) Everyone is positive and friendly other attitudes/emotions disallowed

 

8) Culture of consensus/shunning questioning/bucking authority disallowed non-conformists pushed out via peer pressure and/or formally expelled via great fanfare (i.e. made an example of)

 

9) Busywork continuous/increasing performance of tasks/duties required, no matter how trivial/time-consuming/futile

 

10) Isolation a pervasive Us vs. Them mentality required outsiders are shunned (even family and friends), especially former members and contacts who are resistant to recruitment

 

11) Culture of secrecy secret groups/gossip/gatherings and propagation of shadowy intel and unverifiable inside information (aka: prophecies in a religious/spiritual/metaphysical setting)

 

12) Culture of paranoia everything is seen as a threat to the organization outsiders are automatically suspect, especially former members and contacts who are resistant to recruitment with martyrdom/persecution used as proof of righteousness

 

13) Greener pastures syndrome continually searching out and moving to better locations more conducive to above 12 characteristics

Cheap theatrics. There are 2 more, can you figure out what they are? here is a simple polarity location for points of ancestry to eternal genetic continuation passing through the eternity of now. left figure is genetic continuation and the right figure is societal evolution as it stages governing institutional humanity.

Left object has 40 facets the right 96 ways to misdirect genetic continuation constantly through rule of law in politics and spirituality.
