  1. And poor baby boomers use drugs instead of money to control their social groups. Nearly Every addict of my generation had these hippie baby boomer type parents. So called cool moms n dad turning their kids into codependent addicts. They try to anchor their kids with whatever they can.

  2. RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

    This is why the extremists on each side play identity politics and seek to isolate people into thinking if they don't agree with an agenda or opinion they are ignorant, bigoted, etc. The list goes on. As a society, we are going to have to wake up, stop getting our information from the media, and start seeing those in power for who they actually are.

  3. i feel like im really starting to get your channel. i would like to donate and to get your perspective ln my situation/story. But it would be good to know more specifically somehow, the amount expected perhaps, how much detail you want etc. if there is a video explaining this further, please send me a link ?

  4. I'm a baby boomer and I'm a victim of narcs/psychopaths, not a narc!  My parents grew up during the depression, so they probably had plenty of abuse of their own.  Actually, my NPM grew up "privileged" but with a full-on psychopath father and mother.  I think her psychopathy is both genetic and from abuse.  My NF was probably a victim of abuse due to financial problems.

    Main point being, baby boomers were mainly raised by people who grew up during the Great Depression, who endured many physical, social and financial hardships.

    * RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood. (These are two things of which there is a plentiful supply. Government and corporations always have a difficult time appealing to people, and usually do so almost exclusively with economic arguments.)
    * RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone. (Organizations under attack wonder why radicals don’t address the “real” issues. This is why. They avoid things with which they have no knowledge.)
    * RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)
    * RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)
    * RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)
    * RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones. (Radical activists, in this sense, are no different that any other human being. We all avoid “un-fun” activities, and but we revel at and enjoy the ones that work and bring results.)
    * RULE 7: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news. (Even radical activists get bored. So to keep them excited and involved, organizers are constantly coming up with new tactics.)
    * RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)
    * RULE 9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist. (Perception is reality. Large organizations always prepare a worst-case scenario, something that may be furthest from the activists’ minds. The upshot is that the organization will expend enormous time and energy, creating in its own collective mind the direst of conclusions. The possibilities can easily poison the mind and result in demoralization.)
    * RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog. (Unions used this tactic. Peaceful [albeit loud] demonstrations during the heyday of unions in the early to mid-20th Century incurred management’s wrath, often in the form of violence that eventually brought public sympathy to their side.)
    * RULE 11: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem. (Old saw: If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. Activist organizations have an agenda, and their strategy is to hold a place at the table, to be given a forum to wield their power. So, they have to have a compromise solution.)
    * RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

  6. These are my parents. I'm pregnant and on bed rest. When I called my mother for help she said she's too tired and doesn't know what to do because "no one helped her when she was pregnant". Then she says, but I gave you $$ for the crib. Then complains that she's so tired because of having to clean her massive house…meanwhile I'm looking to raise my child in a small apartment.

  7. The Achilles Heel to this plan seems to be just don't play their game … independence is truly the key … i am 67 … yep, smack dab in the middle of the Boomer generation and I recall wondering at a very early age why the stork dropped me off at the wrong planet … i see a trip to the library in my future … going to look into Saul Alinsky's and Frances Fox Piven's writings.

  8. Glad to see you getting a bit conspiratorial Ollie, now take things to their logical conclusion and realize that the entire election process is a fucking charade, literally.

    To the kid this video is for, start a business, read Jim Rohn, Brian Tracy, Bob Proctor, dont join the army get a job on an oil rig or something if you need funding, and check out the playlists on my channel if you believe money is the most valuable thing in life, which we were all raised to believe.

  9. I'm another baby boomer I guess. Born in 1956, but I've never heard anything like Ollie read, probably because I wasn't allowed out of the house, until I finally developed agoraphobia and Stockholm Syndrome.

    We weren't rich at all. Although I have been cut out of Mother's will so her golden child can have it all.

    The kids my age were more into the whole peace and love, smoking dope, embroidering jeans kind of stuff. This sounds like a whole other group. Actually I would have thought they'd be considered 'yuppies'.

  10. I think narcissism has always been a strong American trait, its just different eras had different forms of it.

    Before the baby boomers, the form of narcissism that prevailed was physical. This is why racism that made fun of the features of blacks, while uplifting all of white features, was so prevalent from the music to the movies, even to the religious drawings. To me its clear as day that a lot of whites were narcissist back in the day, and blacks were the scapegoat children . Jim Crow alone tells you narcissism was the head leader because it was about controlling people, just with no type of thinking, it was very simple.

    The baby boomers were the beginning of the cerebral narcissists. They had more thinking then most average citizens before them. I think the use of psychological stimulants caused this such as cannabis, and lsd, whereas the people before them just smoked tobacco, and got high off of alcohol which dumbs you down. Notice how after the civil rights movement, the moves of the racists were way more covert, and only until the late 90's did we start learning the things they did such as cointel pro, and other things that helped create the inner city ghettos of today. I heard a reagan advisor in the 80's say the new form of racism has to be more covert, and use terms that had hidden meanings. He didn't know he was being taped, and it was only exposed a few years ago, and it still didn't make the news! He was right, because we see groups like the "alt right" using this exact tactic!

    Now, this is the era of everything combined! They know how to divide everyone because most don't study each others history, so they can bullshit both sides to divide them. When in reality they both work together. Trump is another side of the coin of hillary!

  11. Great video … Not sure if this has been said already either in the comments or elsewhere but for the person who submitted this story: Aside from not telling your narc parents where you're going/what you're planning don't tell ANYONE. I'm in the same boat as you. I know exactly where I want to go and what I want to do when I get there … and it's just for me to know ;)

  12. I'm a baby boomer and from my experiences and observations, there are much more millennial narcs now than there were baby boomer narcs. When we were the millennial's age, in general, we were much more polite and respectful to others than the younger people are now. This disease seem to be spreading and increasing with time.

  13. Conservative attitudes and consistently associated with Dark Triad, which includes Narcissism. See article "A lot more bad news for conservatives, and a little bit of bad news for liberals? Moral judgments and the dark triad personality traits: A follow-up study" by Marcus Arvan (2013). Love ya Olie, but here your views dont mesh with what we know about nazi authoritarianism. libs are on the other end of the spectrum politically.

  14. This is not leftist tactics, you don't even have leftist in US. You got right wing, and more right wing. Neoliberals are not leftist, even though they try to look like one. Neoliberalism is as right wing as it can be. This is something i have hard time to understand, you have two party system.. and you still think you live in a democratic system? In two party system, your politics become like a hockey game.. choose a side and start hating the other side & rooting for your side. It's extremely dangerous. And it's also a way to control people.

    You need to distinguish real leftism from the nonsense, leftism is about worker rights. It's about you not having to wear diapers in factories and getting paid by polets that only work in the factory's own food store.

    Study Noam Chomsky, not some neoliberal bullshit. Hillary is a dangerous warhawk, but i don't think Trump is much better. Even though i prefer his way of dealing foreign affairs, at least he has not threatened about every country with war like Hillary has (russia, iran etc.).

  15. Saul Alinsky was a major figure in Rochester in the aftermath of the 1964 race riots.
    He disliked superficial flavors of liberalism and encouraged conflict —
    "There can be no compromise without confrontation" — but later turned
    to activism at corporate shareholder meetings to encourage change.

    As an aside, Hillary Clinton was a major admirer, writing her undergraduate thesis on his work and ideas.

  16. You are a gem, Ollie. Never read these leftist books, but I am a boomer. Filthy bastards, the Clintons. As well the Bushes. There were a couple of narcs in my family before I showed up. Three in fact. Hmm. Direct personalized criticism and ridicule. I experienced this for so long, so much of my life and took it from the women in my family. I could not see that they were jealous, envious, and resentful. Happy for them. Not reciprocal. My marriage tanked because when the business began to take off and the husband's temptations showed up, I could not deal with it. I was emotionally unprepared. It's absolutely amazing how we go back to the well that was about draining us dry in the first place. My sisters have the bling, the big houses, and I could give a flip. Pretense and lies. Sooner or later it all comes out. I'm 70. They are 80, 81. Don't expect anything. Do not want anything.

    One would think a person would care to come to self reflection. Many just do not. Thanks for allowing us to hear from those willing to share their experiences.
