30. Not surprisingly, I've pondered this question.
It's all about opportunity.

Have you ever read The Man who was Tuesday. by G.K. Chesterton? No, well no matter. It's a novel set in Victorian London about a spy sent to infiltrate an organization of criminal mastermind anarchists, all of whom go by the name of a day of the week. What the reader knows and the narrator does not at first know (nor does anybody else in the organization) is that everybody in the organization is actually an infiltrator sent to smoke out everybody else...there is no organization of anarchists. Just a bunch of conspiratorial spies and agents.

With that I suggest you plan a potluck...but don't invite anybody. Then start making phone calls to the alphabet soup (FBI, NSA, ATF, etc.) and tell each of them you want to go paid-informant and can get them into this potluck where a major eco-leftist militant action is being planned.

Take the money and bail on your own party. They spend the night trying to smoke each other out and escalating their own conspiracy theories. You get a Scuderia. :evilgrin:
