How to create a sick system.

Issendai gives us a list of rules on how to create a sick relationship or social system.

Rule 1: Keep them too busy to think.
Rule 2: Keep them tired
Rule 3: Keep them emotionally involved.
Rule 4: Reward intermittently
Keep the crises rolling.
Things will be better when…
Keep real rewards distant.
Establish one small semi-occasional success.
Chop up their time.
Enmesh your success with theirs.
Keep everything on the edge.

    Funny.

    I initially read this “Issendai gives us a list of rules on how to create a sick relationship or social system”

    As this “Israel gives us a list of rules on how to create a sick relationship or social system”

    It mostly fits, I think. The israelis do work hard at keeping the Palestinians constantly on edge, exhausted, and hungry. Occasional successes give the Palestinians hope, but there is only more failure and abuse in their future. And constant crises keep the Israeli hawks in power…

      Sick systems exist in all areas of society… but no doubt Israel’s genocidal policy is one of them. :)

        True!

        Love the new look!

          Thanks. I had a bug and tried to fix it by changing setups, but I think this is actually better. I’ll keep it.
