§ Simple Sabotage Field Manual
- (1) Insist on doing everything through "channels." Never permit short-cuts to be taken in order to expedite decisions.
- (2) 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.
- (3) When possible, refer all matters to committees, for "further study and consideration." Attempt to make the committees as large as possible - never less than five.
- (4) Bring up irrelevant issues as frequently as possible.
- (5) Haggle over precise wordings of communications, minutes, resolutions.
- (6) Refer back to matters decided upon at the last meeting and attempt to re-open the question of the advisability of that decision.
- (7) Advocate "caution". Be "reasonable" and urge your fellow-conferees to be "reasonable" and avoid haste which might result in embarrassments or difficulties later on.
- (8) 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.
