Twenty-Five Rules of Disinformation - Washington's Blog

Some of these are similar enough to the previous post and won't be repeated.

1. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. 

In Iv-B there is no advantage to be gained by exposing evil in competitors because it only helps other competitors. For example R victims of crime usually don't want to testify even though it would prevent Oy criminals hurting others.

3. Create rumor mongers. 

Rumors change on the margin as Iv-B, as competitors they often assume that everyone else is also being deceptive.

5. Sidetrack opponents with name calling and ridicule. 

Using false descriptions of people is related to Iv-B bluffing, in a competition those who don't do this lose in a Gresham's Law dynamic without I-O policing. 

8. Invoke authority. 

This can be bluffing where the source are hidden or deceptive.

9. Play Dumb.

Also deceptive, R prey might act dumb to make Oy predators overconfident so they can escape.

11. Establish and rely upon fall-back positions.

Not actual positions, they are more like where R prey might have worked out where they can hide safely when attacked.

12. Enigmas have no solution.

Complexity is Iv-B, often not solvable because the facts are hidden or deceptive. Often V-Bi people give up, also with V-B interactions the V team breaks down under the deceptions and harrying by B arguing.

13. Alice in Wonderland Logic.

In Iv-B everything can be deceptive, people reason tactically on the margin even if the whole makes no average sense.

15. Fit the facts to alternate conclusions.

In Iv-B there is no normal center where facts are fitted to, instead they move to other deceptive booms and busts. For example if it is tactically beneficial to suggest something bad in the long term then they would often do this.

16. Vanishing evidence and witnesses.

Like R prey vanishing or Oy predators hiding, this is the safest tactic against Y-Ro teams.

18. Emotionalize, Antagonize, and Goad Opponents. 

Using energy as a tactic to create more chaos in competitors so they might reach a tipping point and collapse.

22. Manufacture a new truth. 

This is a kind of Iv-B innovation, instead V-Bi tends to resist new ideas as errors to the old normal version.

23. Create bigger distractions.

Oy predators might use distractions to disorientate their prey, for example attack when other large animals take R's attention. Also Oy predators might attack a Ro herd trying to distract a buffalo into leaving the herd where they can overwhelm it.

24. Silence critics. 

Disinformation can work better when those trying to make information more transparent and normal are silenced.
