How to use social taboos to prevent individuals close to you from digging tooFrom 2083
much or ask too many questions - AND how to easily manipulate them into
assisting you in protecting your cover from everyone else without them having
the slightest clue what is going on
Using social taboos is an extremely effective method from preventing people who know
you well from digging too much or ask too many questions about your activities that
weekend or that year. It is also an extremely effective method for manipulating them into
protecting your cover.
Long term covers:
• Say you play WoW (World of Warcraft) or another MMO and have developed an addiction
for it. Say that are going to play hardcore for the rest of the year and it is no point trying to
convince you otherwise. Inform them that you will be busy doing that in the future etc. Tell
them that you are ashamed of it and you don’t want to talk any more about it. Make them
swear to not tell anyone! (you just effectively prevented any more questions from that
person AND made the individual assist you in protecting your cover from everyone else)
• Say you think you are gay and are in the process of discovering your new self and that you
don’t want to talk any more about this issue. Tell them that you are ashamed of it and you
don’t want to talk any more about it. Make them swear to not tell anyone! (your ego is
likely to take a dent unless you are secure in your own heterosexuality, because they will
actually believe you are gay. However, it’s an extremely effective strategy for stopping
questions and prevent people from digging in your life when you don’t want them to.
Twisted minds never ceased to amuse me, .... that's a way to use social taboo I would have never thought of.
He didn't just misled his friends/family, he misled the media too making people think once again games are to blame when he's just a political nut head.
He's a completely different type of killer, I much more prefer someone who's revengeful than someone who's got political agenda like this, he's far more dangerous, and should be locked up for life.
I previously couldn't make the connection between his action and his reported beliefs, its only after reading (skimming) through 2083 that I made some connections...
What made me more stunned is the slowness of Norway Police's reaction to this, and the looseness of its law to deal with such a killer, 21 years in prison? Norway is too peaceful I suppose...
In the US he would have been killed by snipers while he's still on the island, or be sentenced to life without parole.
