22. Nice

But may I suggest a "motivation" section?

Step 1 -

If any person disagree with your Third Way position on the grounds that it does not fit with traditional Democratic principles or campaign promises, hurl names at them such as "fringe left," "firebagger," "Paulbot," "Hater!" "ODS," "fucking retarded," or garden variety homophobe and racist.

In the case of #3, the term "Luddite" or "science denier" is more applicable. You may even wish to accuse them of wanting people to starve because it tends to confuse those with bleeding hearts.

Step 2 -

Disrupt any discussion or train of thought that may lead to criticism of Third Way policies. Invite your friends to join you. Because like a pack of wolves, you must tire out your quarry and bring him or her down in a pack. Long-treasured beliefs of democracy and justice are hard to kill, but DFHs have very little endurance, so take heart that eventually they will just give up and go away.

Because Third Way policies depend on "messaging" and "optics" rather than actual benefits for the public, criticism of Third Way policies must never be allowed. Any good soldier who takes it upon themselves to attack all detractors from Third Way policies will be given an extra ration of chocolate, a pat on the head, and a robo-signed 8x10 glossy photo.

Good luck and God Bless America!
