MISSIONS OF LIGHT SERIES

Introduction

by Aspen – ABCU|8 team

What is your Mission of Light? Are you one of those patriots who wants to help but is not quite sure how to begin? This series of articles “Missions of Light” is for you.

There are many roles in the cyber militia, as information warriors come in all shapes and sizes. Roles are available to fit each warrior’s skills, interests, and time commitment.

The mainstream media are not doing their job, so we aim to replace them. Big media companies will become much less important. What is emerging is a grassroots collaboration inspired by common goals. The new organization is fluid and flexible, ever-changing and adapting as new tasks present themselves. Together, we are reshaping the world, replacing stale paradigms with fresh new ones tailored to our needs.

Mission 1. Research/Dig. The research mission is fundamental to all the others. Researchers uncover relevant facts using open sources. Avidly curious like a dog uncovering buried bones, they dig and dig until their appetite for facts is satisfied. They share their findings with others on forums, image boards, discords, blogs, or social media, documenting their discoveries to make the information available.

Mission 2. Meme. Memers often major in visual presentation skills. We value memers’ ability to capture the essence of an idea in a few words accompanied by well-chosen images. They often use irony, humor, beauty, exaggeration, etc. to drive the message home. You don’t have to be a Photoshop genius to become a great memer.

Mission 3. Social Media. This mission encompasses several subcategories. At a basic level, a social media warrior might begin by simply establishing accounts on twitter, parler, gab, instagram, etc. and Liking or Retweeting informative posts. Warriors with the journalist/writer specialty get information from a variety of sources and share it by tweeting, writing, podcasting, or posting. Their goal is not to imitate a mainstream media anchor, but to offer something the Mockingbird media lacks: candor, truth, and analysis.

Mission 4. Talk to people in your life. Some warriors are naturally gregarious, and strike up an easy conversation at the grocery store or with a delivery driver. They keep family in the loop by telephone, instant messaging, or email. They are good listeners and know how to ask the kinds of questions that lead others to uncover truths for themselves.

Mission 5. Pray/Encourage. Many in this movement are people of faith. “Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.” I Cor. 12:27 Recognizing that some are called as teachers, healers, administrators, givers, etc., those who select this mission encourage and support other warriors.

Mission 6. Local Politics. Some warriors exert their influence in the local sphere. They attend town or city council meetings, get a role in the homeowner’s association, voice their opinions to the planning board, or run for a position on the school board. They write letters to the editor or publish a neighborhood newsletter. Through participation in public life, they establish liaisons with other patriots. While serving their community they become an advocate for local citizens. For some, a local beginning precedes their rise into state or national politics.

Stay tuned! ABCU|8 plans further articles on the individual Missions of Light.

Mission 1—Research/Dig

“The research mission is fundamental to all the others. Researchers uncover relevant facts using open sources. Avidly curious like a dog uncovering buried bones, they dig and dig until their appetite for facts is satisfied. They share their findings with others on forums, image boards, discords, blogs, or social media, documenting their discoveries to make the information available.” [1]

Is this you? Do you dig research?

What to Dig
You will come across topics that are misunderstood, or incompletely understood. Trust your intuition. Some of these will instantly rise to the top of your personal priority list. If you’re not sure, jot down a few notes while perusing news feeds. This phase need not be too rigorous; there are many worthy topics and any one of them may contribute to the Great Awakening.

What sources do you scrutinize to follow current events? There is no one-size-fits-all recommendation. In fact, our diversity strengthens us, as patriots fan out to cover different parts of the information sphere. You may find ideas on Facebook, Twitter, a favorite blog, alternative news, or even the TV. Twitter can be a goldmine of breaking news and opinion, if we ignore @Jack’s suggestions and select Follows based on content, relevance, timeliness, and affiliation. With experience, you’ll discern who to trust.

Use MSM sources with caution and a grain of salt—maybe a handful of salt. When talking heads speak in unison, that’s a Mockingbird narrative—sleight of hand that says “Look here; don’t look there.” When [they] want to guide the public into thinking a certain way, we should dig around to identify what [they] are covering up.

How to Dig
Try the Open Source Intelligence framework [2]. Diggers assembled an enormous collection of research tools here [3]. Different search engines may produce radically different results. Google editorializes and omits, based on paid advertising and current information-management initiatives. [4] Duck Duck Go may be a better choice. [5] Yandex.com’s image database is extraordinary. [6]

A screen-capture tool to snapshot work in progress can help keep the digs organized. Some prefer pen and paper, others a text editor to copy and paste URLs and longer text. If you like to work fast, don’t get bogged down perfecting your notes; you will have a better idea of connections and importance as the dig proceeds. You may want to share intermediate results to get others engaged digging with you.

Develop your own techniques for digging on people. Try placing quotes around names, adding a middle initial, age, state, address, corporation, spouse, area code, or any other piece of known data to increase the scope of what you can find. For family connections, try the obituaries or ancestry.com. Real estate and property tax records can be enlightening. Sites like LinkedIn [8] are quite useful if you can log in. It is amazing what one can learn without using any paid services. Vary the search type from web to news to images to mine even more data.

As you learn how data is organized—e.g. which department keeps records of births, marriages, deaths, real estate ownership, corporations, LLCs or partnerships—you will be able to dig deeper. Contemporaneous newspaper articles that are often not well indexed can shed surprising light on a topic. Some diggers specialize in financial data, digging into SEC filings, corporate press releases, or the tax returns of charitable foundations. Any of these avenues can shed light on people or organizations.

Sharing the Results
How to share the results depends on the needs of your target audience. Always include links to sources so others can verify your dig and pursue it themselves, should they wish to. A combination of screenshots, web addresses (URLs), text, and most importantly, your own description of what you noticed, is a good formula to get started. Tools like Draw.io help communicate complex information. Drawing diagrams that show connections among data items helps make the data consumable. [7] Digs that result in high-quality maps tend to get shared widely.

Mission 2—Meme

by Aspen – ABCU|8 team

Have you seen memes that grabbed your attention quickly—memes that demanded being shared? Do you feel the call to meme?

“Memers often major in visual presentation skills. We value memers’ ability to capture the essence of an idea in a few words accompanied by well-chosen images. They often use irony, humor, beauty, exaggeration, etc. to drive the message home.” [1]

Memes (images with added text) are a valuable tool in our info warfare arsenal. They became popular with the rise of social media. An effective meme impacts the viewer in a fraction of a second. A really funny or ironic meme stands a good chance of being retweeted and spreading virally.

Fullsized image

Memes are like the ultimate cluster munition. No blood loss, no damage to property—the only thing memes can destroy is a narrative. They cause brains unaccustomed to independent thought to begin mental exercise. They stimulate minds to question that which is, and to visualize that which could be. Unlike cluster munitions, memes can impact thousands in moments, yet their residual effect lingers as other minds encounter them later. Memes are the most dangerous of weapons, for they do not end, but create new beginnings.

Not all memes are created equal, though. This writer’s “Tao of Memes” [2] picks apart meme examples and critiques them, with the goal of raising our craft to the next level. It discusses technical aspects like image selection, size and shape to maximize exposure, text and fonts, strategies, and graphics tools. You don’t have to be an artist (but it helps); pithy verbiage alone can be a meme!

It would be foolhardy to ignore decades of marketing research on the psychology of influence. A superb meme presents an idea from the reader’s perspective. To do this, a memer sets aside their own viewpoint and temporarily adopts a different person’s perspective. Ask yourself if your meme should confront and punish, or get inside the viewer’s head to tease, delight, or inspire? Is it deleted and not forwarded because it insults the viewer? What about foul language? There’s a time and a place for it…but it’s a turnoff for some viewer segments. Will it go viral? Is it funny? Wry? Sarcastic? Surprising? Emotional? Beautiful? Elevating? Memorable? Insulting? Provocative? Boring? What is the target audience?

If such questions intrigue you, give the Memer’s Mission a try. Study others’ memes on social media. Consider collaborating with a Researcher [3] to gain vital information that needs to be shared. When ready, select the hot topic of the day, and create a phrase to deliver your message. Select an appropriate image, apply your text, and let fly! The best memers perfect their craft through trial and error, observing what works and what doesn’t. Ultimately, no one can predict which meme will go viral. Those who perfect the memer’s craft are held in high esteem by fellow digital warriors.

Mission 3 — Social Media

by Aspen — ABCU|8 team

“Mission 3. Social Media. At a basic level, a social media warrior might begin by simply establishing accounts on twitter, parler, gab, instagram, Facebook, etc. and Liking or Retweeting informative posts.” Missions of Light—Introduction, https://abcu8.co/2020/11/21/missions-of-light-introduction/

Social media offers a vital channel to catch breaking news that is disregarded by the mainstream media. Your social media networks are crucial for spreading information and influence. For descriptive purposes, we’ll divide the social media mission into categories, from the easiest to the most advanced. Everyone can adopt at least a minor a social media warrior role, in addition to other Missions of Light.

A. Scout Role. Scouts scan information sources and share data wherever other warriors congregate. Scout is an intelligence role. They look for trends, identify friends and enemies, and highlight important breaking news. This role does not necessarily require a social media account. It’s a good way to become familiar with social media.

B. Flank Role. Flanks have social media accounts, but do not need to originate tweets/posts. They establish networks of friends, and they follow others. When they see a post that serves the Great Awakening, they amplify it by Liking or Retweeting, to increase the message’s prominence so it will be seen by more eyes.

C. Tactical Assault Role. These warriors establish an energetic social media presence and often accumulate large followings. They often comment forcefully about current events. Their opinions are influential, often swaying many others to their point of view. These opinion leaders become highly skilled at influence campaigns. They are completely familiar with all of the platform’s nuances, traditions, and expectations. They know “who’s who” and have strong relationships with other opinion leaders.

D. Social Media Personalities. These individuals became prominent outside of social media. They may be politicians, mainstream media commentators, journalists, talk show hosts, attorneys, and so forth. They are often primary sources who originate new information directly into cyberspace.

The best way to evaluate the possibility of taking on a social media mission is to begin at the Scout level and gain familiarity with a particular social platform. If the role fits your interest and skills, then set a firm intention about your goals and make a plan to achieve them. Make incremental progress each day and measure your performance against your own expectations. If problems arise (e.g. account suspended), seek advice from experienced social media warriors. Understand that Big Tech has rigged the game against conservatives. Find inspiration in tweets from patriots like @POTUS, @SidneyPowell1, @GenFlynn, @LLinWood, etc.

Never, ever, ever, give up!

 

 

Mission 3b — Write

by Aspen — ABCU|8 team

Fullsized image

“Warriors with the journalist/writer specialty get information from a variety of sources and share it by writing, podcasting, or posting. Their goal is not to imitate a mainstream media anchor, but to offer something the Mockingbird media lacks: candor, truth, and analysis.” [1]

Writer-warriors come in many varieties. Some are inclined to present their ideas in writing, others orally. This mission may be for you, if you have some skill expressing yourself in words, AND you feel a powerful urge to communicate your thoughts to others.

Intake of current events is essential for a writer-warrior. Interacting with others around trending topics will refine and sharpen your opinions. But before writing or podcasting, you must detach from your information sources long enough to formulate your own thoughts. Turning away from the information flow is a very hard step for those accustomed to constantly consuming data, but it is essential! Give yourself enough space to shape your thoughts into cogent text. If you are writing factual material, remember the W’s: Who, What, Where, Why, When, hoW.

What to Write or Talk About

That’s up to you! A real news ecosystem is diverse, not uniform. Expect incomplete data from several vantage points. Controversy is welcome when our disagreements are respectful and courteous. Naturally people with different backgrounds and life experiences will have differing opinions. Almost anything you are inspired to write about, needs to be written about! Topics from your direct personal experience are a great starting place. As you grow as a writer and pursue your interests, focus areas will emerge.

Where to Publish

To determine if the Writer-warrior mission is a fit, try your hand at writing short fact or opinion posts on forums, imageboards, or sites that permit commenting. Survey websites that deliver real news and pick a few. Learn about their editorial standards. Is there a maximum length? Style guidelines? How often do they publish? Are submissions accepted? Can you use a pseudonym? Are independent writers paid?

Consider the American Broadcasting CommUnity. ABCU|8 intends to create a better source of news than mainstream media outlets provide. It seeks to place YOUR VOICE back into the narrative. [2] Submissions are welcome.

For podcasting, consider the Tiger Network [3]. It also supports free speech. Streamers can livestream to YouTube, Twitch, Facebook, and more streaming sites at once, or upload videos. Guidance on livestreaming software is provided. [4]

The Writing Process

It is useful to divide the development of an article or podcast outline into two phases: a creative phase and a refinement phase. Experienced writers do this instinctively, but the technique can be learned.

In the creation phase, give yourself broad latitude to think or imagine anything! Jot down notes or ideas. Read or listen to inputs related to the topic. In this phase, you must suspend judgment. Do not attempt to evaluate “This is good; this is bad.” The more concepts you juxtapose in a disorganized heap, the more creative you become! This is a very important secret.

In the refinement phase, narrow the scope by selecting specific ideas to include or exclude. Consider the target audience, what order to present your ideas, article length, and similar criteria. You either draft an outline, or start writing sentences and paragraphs. The article takes shape.

Now take a second pass. Re-read sentences and find ways to improve them. Use a thesaurus [5] to select better synonyms for stale words: sometimes viewing word suggestions leads to developments you had not considered! Ensure that the ideas are presented in the right order. Simplify awkward or wordy sentences. Most word processors offer options to check spelling and grammar. Double-check citations and footnotes for accuracy.

Continuous Improvement

Practice continually improves a writer’s skill. Review your last post or article. Be honest: would you say it that way again, with what you know now? What reactions did you get? Was something misunderstood? Or did lights go on in people’s heads—you succeeded in communicating?

Decide on your personal goal, and set a firm intention to achieve it. Be persistent! If you take a small step toward the goal each day, you will get there. What if you managed yourself like a business? You would measure your progress against set expectations, and evaluate yourself objectively, considering feedback from others. If some skills need improvement, you would backtrack and and execute a plan to fix them.

Above all, never, ever, ever, give up!

Mission 4 — Talk to People

by Aspen — ABCU|8 team

Listen and ask questions. The right kind of questions. Those are key to this mission.

“Some warriors are naturally gregarious, and strike up an easy conversation at the grocery store or with a delivery driver. They keep family in the loop by telephone, instant messaging, or email. They are good listeners and know how to ask the kinds of questions that lead others to uncover truths for themselves.” [1]

If this is your mission, establishing close connections to lots of people is already in your nature. While it is very tempting to express one’s views forcefully, direct confrontation can have the paradoxical effect of pushing away those we hope to persuade.

People can become combative when their belief system is threatened. Cognitive dissonance is a very real phenomenon. [2] When new information contradicts what a person has long believed—upon which their beliefs and behavior are based—it is natural to reject that information. This can reach a crescendo until the person suddenly realizes they have to reconsider their beliefs and stand down. Or perhaps they simply cannot tolerate the dissonance, and take steps to distance themself from it, like walking away from the conversation or rejecting the information source. Our entrenched beliefs, whether real or false, are intrinsic to our concept of ourself, therefore our ego, our personhood. When this feeling of “who I am” is threatened, a fight-or-flight adrenaline reaction may occur. We have all felt threatened by uncomfortable information that we had to evaluate and decide whether to believe.

Rather than alarming them and provoking cognitive dissonance—which might cause them to distance themself from you—consider an alternate approach. First, find out where they stand. What they believe. What information sources they trust. Then you are in a position to ask Socratic questions that could help them release programmed beliefs without hardening their position.

Socratic questions are focused, open-ended questions that encourage reflection. They can surface knowledge that was outside of our awareness, resulting in insightful perspectives and positive actions. They are “widely used in teaching and counseling to expose and unravel deeply-held values and beliefs that frame and support what we think and say.” [3] Instead, you play dumb, acting as though ignorant of the subject. This encourages the other person to become active in exploring the question, and their beliefs concerning it.

You might start with questions that are not too far from what they already believe. Allow them time to consider the questions and react to them in their own way. This approach takes time, but the results can be rewarding. Truths that someone uncovers for themself are generally the most impactful. A Mission 4 warrior is successful to the degree that their family, friends and acquaintances relinquish tidy sound-bites and start thinking for themselves. Your goal is not to think for them, but to encourage the development of critical thinking and introspection skills in others.

Mission 5 — Pray/Encourage

by Aspen — ABCU|8 team

 

“Many in this movement are people of faith. Those who select this mission encourage and support other warriors.” [1]

How to exercise one’s faith is an individual matter. Each of us has different gifts. Some warriors are comfortable on the front lines, becoming active in civic affairs and local politics, sharing information on social media, writing, podcasting, or meming. Others prefer to remain inconspicuous. They are equally committed to the Great Awakening, but their chosen role is in the back room, helping and encouraging others. There are many ways to help.

Invisible Enemies

“Do (You) truly grasp what it means to have non-corporeal enemies? If (Your) enemies are non-corporeal, how can (You) fight [them]? If (You) do not know what [SPIRITUAL FORCES] are, how can (You) fight [them]? If (You) do not know what [RULERS] are, how can (You) fight [them]?” [6]

Ephesians 6:12 states that our enemies are not [flesh and blood], but [PRINCIPALITIES], [POWERS], [RULERS] of the darkness of this world, and [spiritual wickedness] in [high places]. The Aramaic to English/DIRECT translation of sheds light on non-corporeal enemies:

“Your hand-to-hand combat is not with human beings, but with the highest principalities and authorities operating in rebellion under the heavenly realms. For they are a powerful class of demon-gods and evil spirits that hold this dark world in bondage. Because of this, you must wear all the armor that God provides so you’re protected as you confront the slanderer, for you are destined for all things and will rise victorious. Put on truth as a belt to strengthen you to stand in triumph. Put on holiness as the protective armor that covers your heart.” [7]

Prayer

The Invisible Enemy is no match for the Army of God’s concerted spiritual weapons. “Pray one for another to be healed, for the power of the prayer which a righteous person prays is great.” [2] “Pray without ceasing.” [3] “Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord.” [4] “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea.” [5]

Focused Intention

Whether you believe in a Deity or not, you may wish to focus your intention in a very specific way. Think of the goals, hopes and dreams, and expectations that you have for the Great Awakening. Think how these goals may be manifested in the actions of digital warriors and friends. Put your attention on someone who needs help, and direct thoughts of loving encouragement their way. Why not try it!? Make some quiet time every day, for prayer, directed intention, or silent contemplation. Are there non-corporeal beings (some say angelic messengers, dragon energy, etc.) that respond to our thoughts? Is the human spirit likewise a non-corporeal entity outside of time and space? Do the electrical vibrations of our nervous system interface with the quantum field of the universe? Do our thoughts ripple outbound throughout infinite time and space? You could meditate and try to find out!

Encouragement

If someone is struggling or having a down day, give them encouragement. Let them know you appreciate what they are doing, and that you care about their success. Positive messages of encouragement can make a huge impact on others’ lives! Sincere words of praise and appreciation can empower others by increasing their confidence and providing useful feedback that helps them fine-tune their efforts. Your voice always matters, whether one-on-one or to a wider audience.

Material Assistance

You may learn of a person or a cause that needs financial support. If you are in a position to contribute, do so! Leverage your donations by carefully selecting individuals and groups with potential for the greatest positive impact. Ask them what kind of help they need; perhaps they need volunteers or equipment rather than money.

Above all, never, ever, ever give up!

Mission 6 — Local Politics

by Aspen — ABCU|8 team

“People get into local politics for reasons as varied as having a say in their community, trying to make a difference, or wanting to change policies they don’t agree with.” [3]

Some warriors exert their influence in the local sphere. They attend town or city council meetings, get a role in the homeowner’s association, voice their opinions to the planning board, or run for a position on the school board. They write letters to the editor or publish a neighborhood newsletter. Through participation in public life, they establish liaisons with other patriots. While serving their community they become an advocate for local citizens. For some, a local beginning precedes their rise into state or national politics. [1]

You can become an involved citizen by researching, volunteering, and using your voice. Are there issues in your community or on your local ballot that need a different approach?

The first step is to get a good understanding of local political structures. The internet offers a wealth of information. [2] Local officials might be called alderman, city council, town manager, mayor, county board of supervisors, county administrator, commissioner, selectman, etc. Also consider smaller bodies close to home—homeowners’ association, school board, or planning board. Stay informed via local newspapers, TV, newsletters, or representatives’ social media.

Research your elected officials. What are their names and roles? When are the elections held? Who are the incumbents? What initiatives or policies have they enacted or supported? How do they communicate with the public? What by-laws, statutes, charter, or regulations do they enforce? Find out where these local laws are documented and read them. Learn about the local budget and how the local government spends your taxes. Is there oversight over spending?

Attend meetings. Find out what open meetings a citizen can observe. “City council, board of education, and other board meetings are typically open to the public… they will help you understand the inner workings of your government and see your representatives in action…” [3] Another venue is a town hall meeting, where officials solicit the public’s input. Come prepared to meetings with questions about policies, rules or viewpoints you want clarification on. This is also good preparation to become more comfortable speaking to the public.

Contact your representatives. There are many ways to share your point of view: social media, telephoning their staff or voice mail, writing letters and emails, and visiting their office to speak in person.

Are you prepared to take action? The only qualification is a desire to take on the responsibility! Leadership experience acquired by managing a small business or in the military may be helpful.

You could join a citizen advisory board. In this role, you work with other community members, giving your unique perspective on issues that affect you. You participate by doing research, taking public testimony, reviewing reports, and creating recommendations for local problems. [3] [4]

Finally, consider running for a local government office. There is no better way to create changes locally than by running for office yourself! After identifying an office of interest and submitting the paperwork, assemble a team and begin knocking on doors to make yourself known. If you’re affiliated with a party or group, ask them for support.

Be the change you want to see. A warrior with the local politics mission translates his or her belief and commitment into action! [5]
