UNDER MY THUMB
FEBRUARY 27, 2022 AARON SMITH SEASON 1 EPISODE 19
This week's Episode #19 takes another look at Biderman's Chart of Coercion, but from a different perspective. The abusive and authoritarian actions we have been subjected to over the last couple of years need to be acknowledged if we are going to be able to recognize them moving forward. The tactics are not new, nor are they relevant only to the current events. Coercion is anathema to consent. The more we understand the tactics of totalitarianism, the less likely they will be effective against us.
