Lesson eight


Know Your Opponent

Passive Surveillance

Surveillance is the act of seeing, listening, and using other senses to determine the behavior and activities of the person you are observing. You need to understand what they do, how they do it, their strengths and weaknesses. This process leads to knowing your opponent.

You will be doing passive surveillance. Passive means not doing anything; not reacting or responding to what is happening. You are letting what happens, happen without saying or doing anything in response to it. You are going to observe objectively. Objectively means – I don’t care what I find. I want to understand what is happening. It requires patience. As you observe passively, you will slowly realize what opponents are doing and how they are doing it. There is no other way.

Understand what you are doing.

1. Opponents – Anyone intentionally, messing with you, or trying to upset you is an opponent.
2. You don’t want their attention. Don’t do anything to attract other’s attention.
3. Surveillance is a secret activity. Be still and quiet. Don’t ever tell anyone what you have found.
4. Do not write down names or anything about anyone.
5. Do not follow anyone.

Practice Lesson Eight

You have read what to do and what not to do. Practice doing and not doing those things.

1. Ignore opponents completely. Why? They will come to you. You will recognize them now, but you mustn’t give them any extra attention. You want them to continue to think that you don’t understand what they are doing.
2. Don’t start a conversation with a person you are passively surveilling. Dominion operators are smart. You don’t want them to notice you. Don’t say anything about them or to them. Never tell them or anyone else you know what they are doing or who they are.
3. Don’t write anything down about an opponent, not their names, what they are doing, or how they are doing it.
4. To make it simple, since both your opponent and you are in the same place, you will notice what they are doing and how they are doing it. It is that simple. Follow the rules.
