!. Simple Sabotage Tips
Unhappy with Everyday Life?
Frothing at the Mouth against oppressive bureaucracy?
Sick of petty tyrants and tin pot dictators?
Tormented by intrusive modern technology?
Feel like "sticking it to the man"?

2. The following is taken from sections 11,12 of the OSS's Simple Sabotage Field Manual, a 1944 document that has been declassified. The OSS became the CIA after WWII. The full document is here.
3. (a) Organizations and Conferences
Insist on doing everything through "channels." Never permit short-cuts to be taken in order to, expedite decisions.
4. Make "speeches." Talk as frequently as possible and at great length. Illustrate your "points" by long anecdotes and accounts of personal experiences.
Never hesitate to make a few appropriate "patriotic" comments.
5. When possible, refer all matters to committees, for "further study & consideration"
make the committees as large as possible - never less than 5
- Bring up irrelevant issues as frequently as possible
- Haggle over precise wordings of communications, minutes, resolutions
6. Refer back to matters decided upon at the last meeting and attempt to reopen the question of the advisability of that decision.
- Advocate "caution."
- urge your fellow-conferees to be "reasonable" & avoid haste which might result in embarrassments or difficulties later on.
7. Be worried about the propriety of any decision -raise the question of whether such action as is contemplated lies within the jurisdiction of the group or whether it might conflict with the policy of some higher echelon.
8. (b) Managers and Supervisors
- Demand written orders.
- "Misunderstand" orders.
- Ask endless questions or engage in long correspondence about such orders.
- Quibble over them when you can.
9. Do everything possible to delay delivery of orders. Even though parts of an order may be ready, don't deliver it until completely ready
- Don't order new materials until current stocks have been virtually exhausted, so that delay in filling your order will mean a shutdown.
10. Order high-quality materials which are hard to get. If you don't get them argue about it. Warn that inferior materials will mean inferior work.
- In making work assignments, always sign out the unimportant jobs first.
- Assign important jobs to inefficient workers.
11. Insist on perfect work in relatively unimportant products; send back for refinishing those which have the least flaw. Approve other defective parts whose flaws are not visible.
- Make mistakes in routing so that parts and materials will be sent to the wrong place in the plant
12. When training new workers, give incomplete or misleading instructions.
To lower morale and with it, production, be pleasant to inefficient workers; give them undeserved promotions. Discriminate against efficient workers; complain unjustly about their work.
13. Hold conferences when there is more critical work to be done.
Multiply paper work in plausible ways. Start duplicate files.
Multiply procedures & clearances involved in issuing instructions, pay checks, & so on. See that 3 people have to approve everything where one would do.
14. Apply all regulations to the last letter.
15. c) Office Workers
Make mistakes in quantities of material when you are copying orders. Confuse similar names. Use wrong addresses.
Prolong correspondence with government bureaus.
Misfile essential documents.
16. In making copies, make one too few, so that an extra copying job will have to be done.
- Tell important callers the boss is busy or talking on another telephone.
- Hold up mail until the next collection
- Delete Emails
- Spread disturbing rumors that sound like insider info.
17. d) Employees
Work slowly
- Think out ways to increase the number of movements necessary on your job: use a light hammer instead of a heavy one, try to make a small wrench do when a big one is necessary, use little force where considerable force is needed, and so on.
18. Contrive as many interruptions to your work as you can: when changing material on which you are working, as you would on a lathe or punch, take needless time to do it. If you are cutting, shaping or doing other measured work, measure dimensions twice as often as you need to.
19. When you go to the lavatory, spend a longer time there than is necessary. Forget tools so that you will have to go back after them.
- Even if you understand the language, pretend not to understand instructions in a foreign tongue.
20. Pretend that instructions are hard to understand, and ask to have them repeated more than once. Or pretend that you are particularly anxious to do your work, and pester the foreman with unnecessary questions.
21. Do your work poorly and blame it on bad tools, machinery, or equipment. Complain that these things are preventing you from doing your job right.
- Never pass on your skill and experience to a new or less skillful worker.
22. Snarl up administration in every possible way.
- Fill out forms illegibly so that they will have to be done over again and again.
- Make mistakes or omit requested information in forms.
23. Organise a group for presenting employee problems to management
- See that procedures adopted are as inconvenient as possiblet, involving the presence of many employees at each presentation, entailing more than one meeting for each grievance, bringing up imaginary problems
24. Misroute materials.
- Mix good parts with unusable scrap and rejected parts.
25. (e) General Devices for Lowering Morale and Creating Confusion
- Give lengthy and incomprehensible explanations when questioned.
- Report imaginary spies or danger to Security
- Act stupid.
- Be as irritable and quarrelsome as possible without getting yourself into trouble.
26. Misunderstand all sorts of regulations concerning such matters as rationing, transportation, traffic regulations.
- Complain against ersatz & sub-standard materials.
- In public treat State officials and Bureaucrats coldly.
27. Stop all conversation when Bureaucrats, Civil servants, IT workers or passport officials enter a cafe or bar.
- Cry and sob hysterically at every occasion, especially when confronted by government clerks or passport officials
28. Boycott all movies, entertainments, concerts, newspapers which are in any way connected with the quisling authorities.
To incite the citizen to the active practice of simple sabotage and to keep him practicing that sabotage over sustained periods is a special problem.
30. Personal Motives
31. Since the effect of his own acts is limited, the saboteur may become discouraged unless he feels that he is a member of a large, though unseen, group of saboteurs operating against the enemy or the government of his own country and elsewhere
32. More important than (a) or (b) would be to create a situation in which the citizen-saboteur acquires a sense of responsibility and begins to educate others in simple sabotage.
33. Encouraging Destructiveness
It should be pointed out to saboteurs that they are acting in self-defence or retaliating against the enemy for their acts of destruction.
- A reasonable amount of humour when presenting suggestions for simple sabotage will relax tensions of fear
34. The saboteur may have to reverse his thinking
35. 2 types of potential citizen-saboteurs who are to engage in physical destruction:
1. Not technically trained & employed
They need specific suggestions as to what he can and should destroy as well as details regarding the tools by means of which destruction is accomplished.
36. (2) A technician, such as a machine operator, automobile mechanic or IT expert, who would be able to devise methods of simple sabotage which would be appropriate.
However, they need to be stimulated to re-orient their thinking towards destruction with specific examples
37. Safety Measures
38. Tools of the Trade
It should not be difficult to prepare leaflets & other media for saboteurs about choice of weapons, time, & targets which will insure saboteurs against detection & retaliation
Among such suggestions are the following:
(+ Deep Sea Magnets for IT workers)
39. Commit acts for which large numbers of people could be responsible
- if you blow out the wiring in a factory at a central fire box, almost anyone could have done it
- sabotage after dark, against a military car or truck, is an act for which it would be impossible to blame you
40. Do not be afraid to commit acts for which you might be blamed directly, so long as you do so rarely, and as long as you have a plausible excuse: you dropped your wrench across an electric circuit because you were half-dozing at work. Always be profuse in your apologies.
41. Frequently you can "get away" with such acts under the cover of pretending stupidity, ignorance, over-caution, fear of being suspected of sabotage, or weakness and dullness due to undernourishment.
Simple sabotage is more than malicious mischief, and it should always consist of acts whose results will be detrimental to the materials and manpower of the enemy.
43. The saboteur should be ingenious
All sorts of weapons will present themselves.
For Example:
Emery dust at first may seen unobtainable but if the saboteur were to pulverize an emery knife sharpener or emery wheel with a hammer, he would find himself with a plentiful supply.
44. The saboteur should never attack targets beyond his capacity or the capacity of his instruments. An inexperienced person should not, for example, attempt to use explosives, but should confine himself to the use of matches or other familiar weapons.
45. The saboteur should try to damage only objects & materials known to be in use by the enemy or to be destined for early use by the enemy.
- Almost any product of heavy industry is destined for enemy use
- The most efficient fuels & lubricants also are destined for enemy use.
46. The saboteur should be encouraged to attack transportation facilities of all kinds.
- Among such facilities are roads, railroads, auto mobiles, trucks, motor-cycles, bicycles, trains, and trams.
47. Any communications facilities which can be used by the authorities to transmit instructions or morale material should be the objects of sabotage
These include telephone, mobile phone masts, television & power systems, radio, newspapers, placards, public notices & social media
48. Critical materials, valuable in themselves or necessary to the efficient functioning of transportation and communication, also should become targets for the citizen-saboteur. These may include oil, gasoline, tires, food, and water.
It will not be possible to evaluate the desirability of simple sabotage in an area without having in mind rather specifically what individual acts and results are embraced by the definition of simple sabotage.
50. Buildings
Warehouses, barracks, offices, hotels,& factory buildings are outstanding targets for simple sabotage. They are extremely susceptible to damage, especially by fire; they offer opportunities to such untrained people as janitors, charwomen, and casual visitors

(1) Kushner is worth $324 million.
(2) Since 2016, Kushner has connived, with Saudi help, to force the Qataris (literally at a ship's gunpoint) to "loan" him $900 million.
(3) This is consistent with the Steele dossier.
(4) Kushner is unlikely to ever have to pay the "loan" back.

2/ So as you read about his tax practices, you should take from it that it's practices of this sort that ensure that he's able to extort money from foreign governments while Trump is POTUS without ever having to pay the money back. It also explains why he's in the Saudis' pocket.

3/ It's why the Saudis *say* he's in their pocket. It's why emoluments and federal bribery statutes matter. It's why Kushner was talking to the Saudi Crown Prince the day before the murdered Washington Post journalist was taken. It's why the Trump administration now does nothing.
