    How to Counter Group Manipulation Tactics Workbook

    The Techniques of Unethical Consensus-Building Unmasked.Have you ever had the demoralizing experience of being labeled a "troublemaker" as soon as you question the moderator of a discussion, or raise an objection to a school policy, textbook, course of study, teaching method, or community proposal? Unfortunately, being seen as "uncooperative" is not socially acceptable these days. Be it the workplace, a community forum,or the PTA; team spirit is valued above all else. To have your view heard and taken seriously, you must know, how to recognize psychological manipulation and be able to work around it to reframe the debate, take it away from your adversary, and argue the issue in question on your terms, not on your opponent's. This workbook teaches you all you need to know about countering the tactics used by moderators so you can get reasoned conversation and dialogue started.

    How to Counter Group Manipulation Tactics: The Techniques of Unethical Consensus-Building Unmasked

    Major New Weapon for the Freedom Fighter's Arsenal


    Tom DeWesse | The New American
    10 May 2011


    America is being transformed. Americans know something is very wrong and are desperately digging for answers. Spending is out of control. Rules and regulations are enforced over every aspect of our lives. Not only can we not build on our private property, but our rivers and streams are becoming off limits; energy prices are skyrocketing as our government refuses to even consider using American energy reserves that are locked away, apparently forever. American jobs are disappearing oversees. Our money is growing more worthless every day and taxes are going up on everything we buy, eat, drive, or wear. Schools don’t teach. healthcare isn’t about health. Investments translate to bankruptcy. And Social Security isn’t secure.

    We just held an election demanding that the run- away federal budget and government intrusion be reigned in. But after a lot of fast maneuvering, hot rhetoric and back slapping, basically nothing was cut. How can all of this happen before our very eyes, in broad daylight, against our will? Bottom line — politicians at all levels have found a way to ignore the American people while accomplishing the greatest transformation in American history.

    How indeed? Alert political activists may have noticed a major change in the way government and public policy has been run for the past couple of decades. That change is the key to how we are being outmaneuvered — right before our eyes. There are many names for the tactic: Group Manipulation; Consensus; Facilitation. Psychologically Controlled Environments; Scientific Coercion. It all means the same thing; professional manipulators are being employed to control pubic meetings through a pre-determined outcome, and they are trained to lead you straight to that result and even make you think it was your idea.

    If you’ve been to a public meeting lately, you will see the meeting is run by a man or woman who is not really part of the group in an “official” capacity. They are called “facilitator.” his/her job is to bring the group to “consensus,” which means there is not to be debate or disagreement. The policy or project or program on the table is not discussed in detail so that the group can judge the item on its merits and vote on it. In fact, if you begin to question the policy, or ask who the facilitator represents, or in general show signs of disagreement, the facilitator quickly loses his/her charm and begins to describe you to the group as “uncooperative” or a troublemaker who is wasting the group’s time. There is never a vote on the issue. Instead, the group somehow reaches “consensus.”

    The average activist or concerned citizen doesn’t have a chance to debate merits of the program. A property owner is viewed as selfish and unenlightened to bring up how a policy might affect his/her property. And if the facilitator is good at his job, and they usually are highly paid to be good, then it won’t matter how many protesters manage to turn out. It doesn’t matter how much pressure has been brought to bear in letters to the editor. The facilitator brings his group home to the predetermined outcome, the policy becomes law. Government grows, freedoms are lost.… Until now — that is.

    Best-selling author Beverly Eakman has been conducting one-day seminars for years to teach the good guys how to bust up these facilitator-controlled public policy meetings. Those attending her events have also been provided a copy of a manual detailing how to organize and fight back. The problem was, Beverly could only conduct so many seminars and that made for a small distribution of the manual. Now that has changed.

    Beverly has updated the manual to stand on its own, without the necessary seminar, and she has released it as a stand alone book. That means activists across the nation can now learn how to take back control of their government just by reading and following the advice in How To Counter Group Manipulation Tactics, 2011 Edition. The book is published and available from Midnight Whistler Publishers, MidnightWhistler.com

    She details how “Provocateurs,” “Agitators,” and “Change Agents” are able to force through their agendas right under your nose. She teaches you their lingo and how they use it to divide you from the group and marginalize your honest questions and objections. Beverly goes into great detail, giving you specific dialog and words that would be used against you. She shows how, once you have reveled your opposition, the facilitator will focus on you, using lines like, "even a child would understand…” or “everyone on the committee understands…” indicating only you are out of step.

    It’s psychological warfare and Bev Eakman’s book gives you everything you need to know to take control of the battlefield. She teaches you how to recognize that the process is in use; she shows you how to remain calm and under the radar until you are ready to launch an effective counter attack — and she shows you how to turn the tables on the facilitator. She also gives you the five basic steps to indoctrination and how to counter them.

    We are engaged in a titanic battle for American freedoms. We are losing on battle fields at every level. And group manipulation is being employed as a tool to turn our Constitutionally-correct public policy process into a weapon against us. Beverly Eakman’s book, How To Counter Group Manipulation Tactics is not only a valuable tool for our side, it is a mandatory weapon of mass destruction in the arsenal of the forces of freedom. Get a copy and start turning the tables on their psychological tactics.

    We're needing to know this now more than ever. When the RPCs come to town, you'd better be prepared.
