RULES FOR RADICALS
(FROM THE 1960'S BUT STILL VALID TODAY FOR ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS)

First Rule: Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.

Second Rule: Never go outside the experience of your people.

Third Rule: Whenever possible go outside the experience of the enemy.

Fourth Rule: Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.

Fifth Rule: Ridicule is man's most potent weapon.

Sixth Rule: A good tactic is one that your people enjoy.

Seventh Rule: A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.

Eighth Rule: Keep the pressure on.

Ninth Rule: The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.

Tenth Rule: The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.

Eleventh Rule: If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside.

Twelfth Rule: The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.

Thirteenth Rule: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it.
