MISSIONS OF LIGHT
What is your Mission of Light? Are you one of those patriots who wants to help but is not quite sure how to begin? This series of articles “Missions of Light” is for you.
There are many roles in the cyber militia, as information warriors come in all shapes and sizes. Roles are available to fit each warrior’s skills, interests, and time commitment.
The mainstream media is not doing their job, so we aim to replace them. Big media companies will become much less important. What is emerging is a grassroots collaboration inspired by common goals. The new organization is fluid and flexible, ever-changing and adapting as new tasks present themselves. Together, we are reshaping the world, replacing stale paradigms with fresh new ones tailored to our needs.
Mission 1. Research/Dig. The research mission is fundamental to all the others. Researchers uncover relevant facts using open sources. Avidly curious like a dog uncovering buried bones, they dig and dig until their appetite for facts is satisfied. They share their findings with others on forums, image boards, discords, blogs, or social media, documenting their discoveries to make the information available.
Mission 2. Meme. Memers often major in visual presentation skills. We value memers’ ability to capture the essence of an idea in a few words accompanied by well-chosen images. They often use irony, humor, beauty, exaggeration, etc. to drive the message home. You don’t have to be a Photoshop genius to become a great memer.
Mission 3. Social Media. This mission encompasses several subcategories. At a basic level, a social media warrior might begin by simply establishing accounts on twitter, parler, gab, instagram, etc. and Liking or Retweeting informative posts. Warriors with the journalist/writer specialty get information from a variety of sources and share it by tweeting, writing, podcasting, or posting. Their goal is not to imitate a mainstream media anchor, but to offer something the Mockingbird media lacks: candor, truth, and analysis.
Mission 4. Talk to people in your life. Some warriors are naturally gregarious, and strike up an easy conversation at the grocery store or with a delivery driver. They keep family in the loop by telephone, instant messaging, or email. They are good listeners and know how to ask the kinds of questions that lead others to uncover truths for themselves.
Mission 5. Pray/Encourage. Many in this movement are people of faith. “Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.” I Cor. 12:27 Recognizing that some are called as teachers, healers, administrators, givers, etc., those who select this mission encourage and support other warriors.
Mission 6. Local Politics. Some warriors exert their influence in the local sphere. They attend town or city council meetings, get a role in the homeowner’s association, voice their opinions to the planning board, or run for a position on the school board. They write letters to the editor or publish a neighborhood newsletter. Through participation in public life, they establish liaisons with other patriots. While serving their community they become an advocate for local citizens. For some, a local beginning precedes their rise into state or national politics.
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly or What makes a good meme GREAT?
Memes (images with added text) are a valuable tool in our info warfare arsenal. Not all memes are created equal, though. We’ll pick apart meme examples and critique them, with the goal of raising our craft to the next level. You don’t have to be an artist (but it helps); pithy verbiage alone can be a meme! We’ll also delve into web apps and standalone tools that make meme crafting easier.
A meme is like the ultimate cluster munition. No blood loss, no damage to property, the only thing a meme can destroy is a narrative. It causes a brain not used to independent thought to begin mental exercise. A meme stimulates a mind to question that which is and begin to visualize that which could be. Unlike a cluster munition a meme can impact thousands in moments but have a residual effect whereby other minds encounter the meme later. A meme is the most dangerous of weapons, for it does not end, it creates a beginning.

MISSIONS OF LIGHT SERIES
“The research mission is fundamental to all the others. Researchers uncover relevant facts using open sources.

Is this you? Do you dig research?
What to Dig
You will come across topics that are misunderstood, or incompletely understood. Trust your intuition. Some of these will instantly rise to the top of your personal priority list. If you’re not sure, jot down a few notes while perusing news feeds. This phase need not be too rigorous; there are many worthy topics and any one of them may contribute to the Great Awakening.
What sources do you scrutinize to follow current events? There is no one-size-fits-all recommendation. In fact, our diversity strengthens us, as patriots fan out to cover different parts of the information sphere. You may find ideas on Facebook, Twitter, a favorite blog, alternative news, or even the TV. Twitter can be a goldmine of breaking news and opinion, if we ignore @Jack’s suggestions and select Follows based on content, relevance, timeliness, and affiliation. With experience, you’ll discern who to trust.
Use MSM sources with caution and a grain of salt—maybe a handful of salt. When talking heads speak in unison, that’s a Mockingbird narrative—sleight of hand that says “Look here; don’t look there.” When [they] want to guide the public into thinking a certain way, we should dig around to identify what [they] are covering up.
How to Dig
Try the Open Source Intelligence framework . Diggers assembled an enormous collection of research tools here . Different search engines may produce radically different results. Google editorializes and omits, based on paid advertising and current information-management initiatives.  Duck Duck Go may be a better choice.  Yandex.com’s image database is extraordinary. 
A screen-capture tool to snapshot work in progress can help keep the digs organized. Some prefer pen and paper, others a text editor to copy and paste URLs and longer text. If you like to work fast, don’t get bogged down perfecting your notes; you will have a better idea of connections and importance as the dig proceeds. You may want to share intermediate results to get others engaged digging with you.
Develop your own techniques for digging on people. Try placing quotes around names, adding a middle initial, age, state, address, corporation, spouse, area code, or any other piece of known data to increase the scope of what you can find. For family connections, try the obituaries or ancestry.com. Real estate and property tax records can be enlightening. Sites like LinkedIn  are quite useful if you can log in. It is amazing what one can learn without using any paid services. Vary the search type from web to news to images to mine even more data.
As you learn how data is organized—e.g. which department keeps records of births, marriages, deaths, real estate ownership, corporations, LLCs or partnerships—you will be able to dig deeper. Contemporaneous newspaper articles that are often not well indexed can shed surprising light on a topic. Some diggers specialize in financial data, digging into SEC filings, corporate press releases, or the tax returns of charitable foundations. Any of these avenues can shed light on people or organizations.
Sharing the Results
How to share the results depends on the needs of your target audience. Always include links to sources so others can verify your dig and pursue it themselves, should they wish to. A combination of screenshots, web addresses (URLs), text, and most importantly, your own description of what you noticed, is a good formula to get started. Tools like Draw.io help communicate complex information. Drawing diagrams that show connections among data items helps make the data consumable.  Digs that result in high-quality maps tend to get shared widely.
