Messages which are spread by agents take many forms.Here is a list of just a few:Relentless negativity and pessimism;unfounded rumors,ad hominem attacks,misinformation,advocating of various kinds of violence,promotions of squabbling and arguments,directing of negative attention towards scapegoats,advocating martial law in order to install dictators;advocating Stalinist style collectivization of land and across the board nationalization of all industry,constant efforts to promote doubt,mistrust and fears,aggressive promotion of conspiracy theories.Agents of Cointelpro are successful when they pay close attention to personalities and exploit things like class antagonisms and cultural differences among the people.Above all,generally negative messaging must be relentless.

None of that here is there? My serious doubts about Occupy are results of these sorts of posts. If I have been guilty of being negative, I apologize. I want reforms to work, but like most Americans, I draw the line at seizing anyone's property. Sure taxes are a form of property seizure, but that is not what I am talking about.

Spreading bad ideas serves the interests of Cointelpro.That is why such a person will try to make people think #OWS supporters are in favor of bad ideas like Stalinist-style collectivist projects.Any horrible idea that Americans would never support could be thrown out there for the same reason.However,I failed to say clearly that not everyone who says or does these things is an agent of Cointelpro.An agent of Cointelpro will never,ever promote the idea that people can co-operate,or that people,human beings should come before profit,or that another,better world is possible.I think it is true that another better world is possible.I don't think capitalism can function in a world where people come before profit.And I don't think you are doing anything bad or wrong.I will suggest that you remember that there are people who post here to disrupt conversations and exchanges of ideas by raising subjects and discussions that are repulsive to Americans.Americans are in agreement in many areas and Cointelpro does not want consensus to form among us through consultation and discussion.Divided,we are conquered-and enslaved.The people,when united,cannot be defeated which is why some people will hate to see Americans working together for a better country.Nevertheless,it must and shall happen.
