He has observed three strategies most commonly used to deal with dissent.
- Punish or make examples of people who openly disagree with them (there are always ways to do this e.g. denial of legitimate requests, sudden appplication of previously ignored policies, etc).
- Ignore those who are dissenting - don't speakto them, don't respond to their emails, don't acknnowledge them i.e. act as if they don't exist.
