  8. Over the course of our groups history, certain external elements have made attempts to turn our own
  9. people against us through nefarious means. They have spread false information against the groups
  10. leadership privately to our soldiers in attempts to sway them to join their group and leave T'koi. This is
  11. something you should be wary of. In this notecard, we will give some examples of this behavior, and
  12. how to prepare yourself against it.
  14. So what is Subversion? The definition is as follows:
  16. Subversion is the undermining of the power and authority of an established system or institution.
  18. There is a broad spectrum of actions that can be considered subversive. For instance, say one group
  19. member (Let's call him David), contacts another group member (Let's call them Sarah), and says "Hey
  20. Sarah, I heard that our group leader is bad and has done some bad things. We should rebel against
  21. them and join this other group, whose members told me this and gave me these notecards!" and then
  22. proceeds to share unverified, possibly forged documents with Sarah to try and convince them that the
  23. enclosed statements are facts.
  25. This is an example of Subversive behavior, on both the part of David and the other group who attempted
  26. to sway them.
  28. So what should David have done differently?
  30. 1: David should have immediately contacted a command member after being contacted by this external
  31.     source and made an attempt to verify the accuracy of the information they received.
  33. 2: David should have realized that notecards are not necessarily an accurate source of information, as they
  34.     can be doctored (Edited) either partially, or forged completely.
  36. What should Sarah do in this instance?
  38. 1: Immediately report this incident to command staff.
  40. 2: Forward any documents shared to command staff for investigation.
  43. This type of thing happens all the time, especially to larger groups. Some groups will try and prey on the
  44. less experienced people in a larger group who are new and not entirely familiar with the environment.
  45. Sometimes members from other groups will visit the simulator and act friendly to gain your trust, and
  46. then will make an attempt to sway you to join them and convince you that the group you are currently in
  47. is bad, and/or that their leader is bad. They may show you documents to try and prove this point. These
  48. should be disregarded as they are most certainly false or doctored, and report this incident to an officer
  49. or command member immediately.
  51. They may also try and use some negative experiences that you might have been through to augment their
  52. argument, even though they may have been isolated and minor, they may go on to tell you about experiences
  53. of others that are completely false and made up in order to strengthen those negative feelings. This is called
  54. manipulation, and it also happens a lot.
  56. What is Manipulation?
  58. Manipulation is the action of manipulating someone in a clever or unscrupulous way..
  60. Specifically, they will try to psychologically and emotionally manipulate you by catering to your feelings and
  61. using them against you to benefit themselves and their own group. Be very careful when talking to members
  62. of other groups. Watch for signs of this behavior.

  69. So what should you do?
  71. If you find yourself being confronted by members of another group, or even by members of your own group
  72. with this sort of behavior, contact Tkoi Command immediately. They are there to help. Don't be afraid that
  73. you're bothering them, this is a very serious matter and will be handled immediately.
  75. Additionally, if there is anything going on within the group that makes you uncomfortable, such as the actions
  76. or behavior of certain members, don't be afraid to contact command staff about this. We care about you and
  77. your concerns, and again, we're here to help. We want to make sure that you're comfortable here and can
  78. enjoy your experience with us!
