Start teaching something you regard as important at your local community college or to other people's kids as a volunteer.

It is mostly easy to pull off because there are organizations for almost every topic and most people there are liberal, so it is usually easy to sell them your message.

You will realize how mighty the method of learning by watching others / examples really is.

I had / saw people throwing away whole ideologies their parents force-fed them.

I can't describe how fulfilling it feels, when a young person really accepts your message and you can watch how they adjust their behavior accordingly.

There are a lot of different hollow plastic balls you can experiment with, you know that ?

Its alot of fun, believe me.

Furthermore: It is a nice skill to have, to be good with a slingshot. A slingshot takes almost everything small enough as ammo and if you are at that point you most likely will try anything you see fit as ammo. This can feed your creativity alot .

I've never seen Bart Simpson with a laser cannon but i've seen Prof. Fring fail many times.

Above that: Slingshots are forbidden in no country i know of, but enlighten me on Lasers and their many uses.

It also is a question of investment for (possible future) applications, but you didn't consider that, right ?

Everything involving electronics is in no way as resilient as good old stone-age tactics.

From my POV you most definitely use IP2, because you thought that through thoroughly.

Despite the geniuses of IP2 giving you these awesome plans chock full of motion sensor tripping pieces of cloth and super secret recipes for homemade ...slingshot shell paints.

Here's something that actually works...

Most street lamps either work on a timer or a photovalic sensor. If it works on a photovalic sensor. You can hit the sensor with a high powered laser. Somewhere around 50mw-200mw. It will turn off for a couple of minutes. Otherwise, just take the L and play with your sidewalk chalk elsewhere.

Climb up, affix a ribbon of cloth to the lamp in front of the motion sensor and leave it hanging. If you position it correctly, the sensor should trip whenever there is a wind strong enough to blow the cloth around.

Hide your tools securely and practice beforehand with the slingshot, because these things can be hard to use precisely and securely at the same time. I wouldn't try to hit anything with it, before you feel secure enough with it.

Hell yeah, that's what I'll be doing.

The heart attack thing is strangely correct, it's a family and they're very crooked. The oldest guy is the perpetrator and he is bitter as hell. Has nothing better to do so he just sits and thinks about shit to complain about. Dude got diagnosed with 3 blockages in his coronary arteries and his doctor recommended he keep out of quarrels, and he's stopped showing up to quarrel/argue in person.

I don't wish death on anybody though, that guy is a grandfather. But in this case I'd be happy if his soul found peace.

All you need is a (high-powered) slingshot and paintball style ammunition, if you're hardcore you mix permanent color into shells like these. You gotta use a lot of info-war / strategy to pull it off though without being a prime suspect. This decision depends one how much you care for your other neighbors view at you, imo. But: You even get to choose opacity and color and the authorities need proof.

(if you got a wife/husband and family you can evade finely for almost ever as long as they all carry this decision)

If my neighbor was this kind of an asshole, just to send a message, i most definitely would do it. And i'd repeat it till they remove the streetlight or your asshole neighbor gets a heart attack.

It is totally justifiable and a civilians tactic and Germans are used to those kind of differences. :)

Things are controlled manually from the power station, I'm gonna take a slingshot to it. Relatively easy to build, use, explain if found, and to dispose. Impossible to track if built manually, free ammo lying all over the place and I won't kill anyone if I fuck up.

I got RL friends / groups that will help to spread the stickers at points of interest for the right crowd. I for myself don't care (because i can bend my reality) but i won't take it on my conscience if an attorney uses this as a possible legal argument to stop / milk the spreading if one of my friends / friends of a friend get caught / photographed in the act. They are not all the night- /counterinsurgency people like i am, maybe you consider this as a valid reason. And i escalated this question because i believe it is possible to solve it, whiteout the admins because i can put me into their respective shoes, and i would drown in private messages/finding solutions for problems that i regard as my point of interest / things that fit the role i fill.

I assure you this is a low-priority question for them.

I think they never considered this question, but they will be my next step after some time, because i follow a well tested plan.

And finally there is the argument that everyone else trying to pull off this move will profit from the certainty /synthesis, that is why the question is quite vague.

I'm not talking about 10 stickers, more like 2000 in 3-4 medium sized cities to get the maximum possible out of the money.

You dancing around the question doesn't help, it just makes me furious, because it is so pointless and tells me a long story about you, layman.

I did not call you a shill, I said you are doing something that shills often do.

People pick up what seems "normal" behavior from those around them sometimes. I've heard the same advice time and time and time again -- "if you don't like it, just ignore it." I've repeated it too. I'm not sure now if it's good advice or not. Sometimes things need to be addressed, you wouldn't ignore early signs of an illness in your body, why do it in other contexts? But it's also true that people sometimes go around with the hope of provoking some sort of reaction, and that just building a good environment people can move to often seems more helpful than fighting a bad environment. But I suppose that's a form of allowing an invasion or allowing yourself to be marginalized, in a way.

I think pointing out the tactics people are using is helpful. Though I don't like the degree to which it's done with animosity and insults too, that doesn't really seem helpful to me and seems suspect.

I don't really agree with anything in the above comment and I want /u/jmichaelhudsondotnet and anyone else passing by to know. not because I agree with him either or whatever, I just want to make it more clear that this is only one person's viewpoint in the comment I'm replying to.

Holding people accountable when they say they're offering something but then don't seem to actually be offering the thing (magnora7 as per OP) is a positive, helpful activity. "Just go somewhere else" is encouraging someone to self-marginalize. There's no reason jmh can't participate in culture here just as much as anyone else, and I think he's right when he points out the tactics being used sometimes. It's interesting to see the analysis of the techniques because it isn't always easy to put my finger on what's going on when people don't seem to be acting in good faith.

Which removal exactly is this OP about?

This is mod rule 4b:

4b) Mods CAN remove opposing opinions that are high on the pyramid of debate, and ban those users on that sub, if and only if the 2 following conditions are met: 1: The fact the sub removes opposing opinions is announced in the sub's sidebar. 2: The mods uncheck the sub setting "allow this sub to appear on /all"

IP2 doesn't list itself in /s/all by default, but does it announce on the sidebar that it removed certain opinions?

What happened to the focus on "redpilling"? by Aureus in AskSaidIt

[–]comments 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

bit of an old post, but I saw it and thought I may as well add my thoughts.

This got a bit long.

Imo "redpilling" grew out of whatever pickup artist culture is. It's a culture that seems intentionally inconsistent with most ethics I was brought up with. That's what the "red pill" is -- you're actually supposed to be a "dark triad" bad person who hurts women because "they like it" if you want to have good things in life.

Around the 2016 election there was a campaign behind Trump that basically involved treating American whites, especially not highly educated or not wealthy or not urban whites, as a special interest group to pander to, like has been done with other ethnic or special interest groups in the US. It was heavily connected to this PUA culture type stuff.

It's basically another political party's version of "woke". I don't think it was really based on real education, but rather more on conversion tactics. People weren't doing the kinds of things that I would have expected in a good classroom for example, or on wikipedia, where the information is presented in a way that should at least attempt to be neutral, and students are genuinely encouraged to do their own exploration of the topic and come to their own conclusions. Instead it was highly manipulative and emotion driven, and people involved with it were primarily interested in getting others to see things a certain way rather than helping others to be genuinely more informed. Like "woke," a lot of ideas about being persecuted and others, including existing societal structures, being hidden enemies that should be treated as such. Is there truth in it? Sure, but I don't think it's really a movement whose main focus is truth and productivity, I think it was a manipulative election and and political campaign that grew partially out of a movement about how abusing people is good.

And now the election is over, so the campaign is pretty much over, but people haven't made new big campaigns in the meantime (COVID came along.) So people are going around still talking about and thinking about stale issues from a specific time and place meant to win the campaign because there hasn't been sufficient energy behind something else, and either people are lazy and just want something to talk and that's what's available or creating new content is hard or something. But I do think it's mostly stale and it's probably better for people to frame things today with whatever are actually the most pressing issues of today. Which aren't the same as whatever might win the 2016 election in the US, that's just not the correct focus.

Am I glad I know about all this "woke"/"redpill" stuff? I guess. It does seem like whites are being targeted in some ways that aren't ok, and that antidiscrimination laws seem a bit messed up, and that the "new left" is pretty abusive (and always was in ways I did not recognize before), and that Jews as a group really have done some shady stuff.

But I don't think that's educational. I don't think it's what a movement based on trying to help people be genuinely informed and able to look after their own interests would look like. And yes "education" is sometimes indoctrination too I have my problems with how it's run sometimes but there's also the idea of just helping people actually be more informed and skilled.


So basically I think "red pilling" was a 2016 election campaign based on making a special interest group out of whites and men that has strong ties with PUA culture which is probably mostly about encouraging men to be abusive. It'd diminished in prominence because the 2016 election is over.

Is anyone still interested in redpilling new people - creating easy-to-understand educational content and sharing it on platforms like Reddit, Facebook, and YouTube?

I'm interested in having spaces that I think are actually positive and helpful to people. I think a lot of these tactics weren't about education but were about manipulative conversion.

I think there's still lots of interest in actual education content that's easy to share and communicate -- this recent map post for example is fascinating and also not very political (or not politicized yet, pretty sure you could politicize which way the toilet paper faces if you really wanted to). As there has always been an interest in teaching techniques and efficient communication techniques.

Personally I'm not very interested in converting people to a specific viewpoint in what I think is a somewhat manipulative way. I don't really like political organizing based on, well, getting groups to fight each other, I think it's often a scam that some third party is usually profiting from at the expense of the fighting groups ("divide and conquor"). Yeah sometimes there are actual conflicts of interest that need to be resolved but I think there are usually way better ways of going about it that end up creating lasting friendship and cooperation rather than animosity and harm to both groups.

I am interested in creating a positive environment where people are cooperating and supported and good things are happening for everyone. Where people are getting things done that matter and help by actually doing them, rather than just "raising awareness" and complaining about things a lot, which yes has a place but it does not seem to translate into positive action nearly as much as it seems like it would in a well-organized environment that was supposed to support that.

I do think those infographic shareable things can be helpful too. I'd like seeing stuff like "how to make lasting, healthy friendships" or "tips for positive outcomes to common conflicts" or "this is how benefits accumulate over time when you put a little more effort in each day" or even "how to quickly build an easy-to-maintain garden that will provide half the food needs for a family of 4 for 1 year in X climate". Or if you want to get "political" about it "how to achieve positive outcomes when holding an authority accountable."


Well those are some of my thoughts, if you read them, but was there a certain kind of content you were looking to make and collaborate on? Those are my feelings about it right now but people have different interests and projects.

Working on getting /s/life restarted after it being dormant since the beginning of SaidIt and the Creator deleting their account. Not many people use it (there's still a lot of content on it though!), but every now and again a post hits the front page.

It's all meant to be positivity-based, with some added humor and wisdom.

Edit: Also currently "running" /s/instantkarma until someone else takes it over, that's a humor-based sub, same style as reddit's.

Also, here is one of my multisubs: /u/JasonCarswell/m/carswell_faves

After I finish a couple CSS here on SaidIt and promote WikiSpooks birthday I'm going to pull way back on SaidIt so I can focus on finishing my big project before September to share here and everywhere. After that I'll be intentionally less focused on the bad news of the day and more focused on solutions content. We'll need them more than ever.

Well after. Liberal states want to kill off their rural constituents that are less likely to have an office job that is remote capable and who are demographically less inclined to vote democrat. This is political murder.

Don't try to chess me. You are a beginner in chess. Take my advice, use it for your own progression, grow a little bit,give it one, two, three nights, before even thinking about hitting me on a field you just don't know. When combing through my tactics, maybe ask yourself one question. But do it seriously next time.

I grew on this, because this answer is completely opposing my character (and attitude).

Will you ?

I don't just omit opinions, i omit people that aren't able to follow a rationale. Show me what you are. Or bore me further. Things will get final, because even i got respect for time as a parameter.

And if you can't stop trying to evade, it is not my problem.

ip2 joined about 6-7 months ago. Saidit has been around for 2 years.

No it was pretty counter to saidit culture, which was pretty established early on, but IP2 wasn't openly advocating violence, and so we let them alone if they agreed to keep to their own space and not advocate violence, which they basically have done. But they don't get to have posts on /all or the front page as a result, so I think we worked out a fair compromise for everyone

Yeah it's partitioned off from the rest of the site and they get an extra level or two of allowance on the pyramid of debate, and in exchange they're not allowed to be listed on /all or be on the front page (which is explained in the rules for saidit). They just wanted their own culture and we tried to make that happen for them without dragging down the rest of the site or just kicking them to the curb after they set up shop
