Alinsky Refined

Government plans to monitor and influence internet communications, and covertly infiltrate online communities in order to sow dissension and disseminate false information, have long been the source of speculation.

Harvard Law Professor Cass Sunstein, a close Obama adviser and the White House’s former head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, wrote a controversial paper in 2008 proposing that the US government employ teams of covert agents and pseudo-”independent” advocates to “cognitively infiltrate” online groups and websites, as well as other activist groups.

 Sunstein also proposed sending covert agents into “chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups” which spread what he views as false and damaging “conspiracy theories” about the government. Ironically, the very same Sunstein was recently named by Obama to serve as a member of the NSA review panel created by the White House, one that – while disputing key NSA claims – proceeded to propose many cosmetic reforms to the agency’s powers (most of which were ignored by the President who appointed them).

The Full Deal ...

Looks like Alinsky Refined

From what I've read, he's probably the smartest, most dedicated statist in The Regime, a man who will argue a patently wrong viewpoint just for the intellectual exercise of proving himself right.
He's not heard from much outside The Regime, but he may be the most dangerous member of it, IMHO.
His wife is Samantha Powers, who is not as smart as Red Cass, but thinks she is and is a political fellow traveller, which makes for a poison filled house. Imagine the dinner talk there. It gives me a headache thinking about it.

The problem for them is the intelligence level of their flying monkey trolls. They mess up anything they are involved with. They are focusing on the Internet now because while they gained control for the print media and broadcast TV they lost advertising revenue due to a loss of audience. They've been showing up as "concern" trolls on various blog comment sites for quite a while and as false flag blogs. The problem is the people who by their sthick is as dumb or dumber than they are. Latest surveys and polls show they are losing the "youth" generation especially those scrambling to get employed.
