Ten easy steps to create an enemy and start a war
Listen closely because we will all see this weapon used in our lives
It can be used on a society of the most ignorant
To the most highly educated, we need to see these tactics as a weapon
Against humanity and not as truth

This is how to create an enemy
This is how to start a war
This is how to create an enemy

First step
Create the enemy
Sometimes this will be done for you

Second step
Be sure the enemy you have chosen is nothing like you
Find obvious differences like race, language, religion
Dietary habits, fashion

Emphasize that their soldiers are not doing a job
They are heartless murderers who enjoy killing

Third step
Once these differences are established
Continue to reinforce them with all disseminated information

Fourth step
Have the media broadcast only the ruling party's information
This can be done through state run media

Remember, in times of conflict
All for-profit media repeats the ruling party's information
Therefore all for-profit media state-run

Fifth step
Show this enemy in actions that seem strange, militant or different
Always portray the enemy as non-human, evil, a killing machine

This is how to create an enemy
This is how to start a war
This is how to create an enemy

Sixth step
Eliminate opposition to the ruling party
Create an "us versus them" mentality
Leave no room for opinions in between

One that does not support all actions of the ruling party
Should be considered a traitor

Seventh step
Use nationalistic and or religious symbols
And rhetoric to define all actions

This can be achieved by slogans such as
"freedom loving people versus those who hate freedom"
This can also be achieved by the use of flags

Eighth step
Align all actions with the dominant deity
It is very effective to use terms like
"it is god's will" or "god bless our nation"

Ninth step
Design propaganda to show that your soldiers have feelings
Hopes, families and loved ones
Make it clear that your soldiers are doing a duty
They do not want or like to kill

Tenth step
Create and atmosphere of fear and instability
Then offer the ruling party as the only solution
To comfort the public's fears
Remembering the fear of the unknown is always the strongest fear

This is how to create an enemy
This is how to start a war
This is how to create an enemy

We are not countries, we are not nations
We are not religions, we are not gods
We are not weapons, we are not ammunition
We are not killers, we will not be tools

I will not die, i will not kill
I will not be your slave
I will not fight your battle

I will not die on your battlefield
I will not fight for your wealth
I am not a fighter
I am a human being
