How to make a terrorist
In order to get Something You Want(tm) from a smaller group:
* Befriend smaller target group by pointing out how similar you are against A Common Enemy(tm) and how they can only win with your help.
* Train people in the smaller group how to fight the larger, more powerful group.
* Provide the smaller group with a stick to poke the larger, more powerful group.
* Sit back and let them annoy and insult the larger group without your name getting into the papers.
* Once larger group has decided the smaller group is too much of a waste and leaves, come in and assume the smaller group is now your friend and that they will give up their weird ways and become just like you so they will buy your stuff and pay you using the Something You Want(tm).
* Act surprised when they tell you to jump off a cliff.
* Demonize the smaller group by emphasizing the differences, and infer that these make them "bad" to your population.
* Poke smaller group with stick. Repeat until they wave around the stick you gave them.
* Poke smaller group with bigger stick.
* Assist or support other (small/large) groups that are already fighting or more overtly affecting the smaller target group.
* Poke the smaller group's friends with (bigger) stick.
* Create documents spelling out like stereo instructions, how you could be "hurt badly". Leave these Plans To Hurt You(tm) laying around anyplace you can think of. Saying they were secret, stolen, and should never be read should ensure widest distribution.
* Translate documents into other languages, just in case.
* Where did I put that 2x4 support beam? Poke them, their friends, family, their pet and have your animal rights group condemn them for not protecting the pet better.
* Encourage others to stop dealing with target smaller group. Force smaller group into economic misery.
* You did send them the Plans To Hurt You(tm), right?
* Be VERY surprised when they follow one or more of the Plans To Hurt You(tm). Try to be feeding soup to lepers or reading to orphans when it happens. Bonus points if you are on TV doing this when it happens.
* Use act to go in and slap them with LOTS of little sticks. Get your friends to join in the fun.
If you did this right, you get to hang around the smaller group, get the Something You Want(tm), slap them with sticks made in your country (creating jobs!), and try to get other countries to pay for some of it. Win-Win, eh?
Joke? I am hopeful, but sometimes I wonder...
