1) I think the secret to these LARP accounts like Eye The Spy is actually simple.

They just block any dissent as quickly as possible. Blocking is the commonality we seem to find with suspect accounts. Stay with me for a sec...
2) Mathematically, social media is just a set of feedback loops. You tweet, people like it, people retweet; if enough of that happens, it spreads, otherwise called "VIRAL."

If folks dislike, it won't spread. If you want to seed disinfo, how do you prevent dislike? Blocking.
3) This is mathematically justifiable, feedback loops are the foundation of evolution. Good ideas spread.

For example, take a pack of wolves. Suppose it gets really cold suddenly, the wolves best adapted to cold are going to survive and eventually breed more cold weather wolves.
4) So what does blocking do? It gives un-adapted wolves a heater to carry around. Wolves that are adapted will complain, and in the LARP-twitterverse, they immediately get blocked. What's left? An un-adapted population creating a new feedback loop that is irrational (dumb).
5) Irrational feedback loops can be equated to cults, and won't entertain any info outside itself. They have created a closed circle, and can't survive outside the "heater" the cult leader provided them, the one blocking followers, and keeping a closed club.
6) I recommend everyone learn about feedback loops, my favorite is the Mandelbrot set. When computers came, you could iterate these feedback loops, and a fascinating moment in mathematics history came about.
7) Computers made it possible to take an equation, iterate it thru a feedback loop, then take the resulting value, plug it in, and take the result and run the same feedback loop formula, then repeat millions of times.

A guy in 1910 could only do it a few times on paper.
8) So patriots = cold weather wolves. We iterate. More adapted wolves are bred. Over time even more adapted wolves are bred.

When you interfere with this process by blocking adaption (dissent), you end up with a retarded feedback loop, and it doesn't evolve, in fact degenerates.
9) Remind you of the Hollywood and media degenerates? Hollywood is just a larger scale feedback loop, a totally retarded body of people we feel forced to follow because we are taught to follow the stars... because of media feedback loops.

They segregate frog loving alt-right from fascist leftist 42 gender crazy left.

They don't let them interact, let the feedback loops work, let them argue, and you get two deeply divided "cults."

Well, one cult seeks truth, but I digress...
10) Mandelbrot is a fascinating mathematical development that I recommend everyone get a grasp of. This is an excellent video, old but very watchable.

Fractal geometry is quite incredible stuff.

11) Division is sewn thru manipulated feedback loops.

[They] know it and are actively using it to divide us. Division comes in many flavors. So scale up how LARP accounts divide all the way to the largest scale media sells us what to believe. Same simple formula at play.
