Boiling the Frog, 5GW style

Effective 5GW against a state or organization will consists of lots of little operations by the small 5GW actor effecting the larger target actor in such small ways they don’t notice until there is nothing they can do to counter the outcome.

This was the only frogtastic picture from Flickr I could find (I felt the post needed an illustration):

  1. […] I think the 5GW planning phase will be long, but 5GW tactical operations will be small, have short timespans, and be numerous (to avoid detection). I call this boiling the frog 5GW-style (https://purpleslog.wordpress.com/2006/05/22/boiling-the-frog-5gw-style/) […]

  2. […] I think I sense the beginning of the fourth civil war – a 5GW Civil War. The institutions of the nations are being slowly subverted (Boiling the Frog style) to call for the rejection of the American Nation's DNA from which it originated.

The Federalist’s were able to get themselves appointed to a convention to help revise the Articles of Confederation but used the occasion to launch a slow motion coup d’etat against the states. This is a classic example of the frog boiling slowly. […]

  5. […] He seemed to be suggesting a Neo-Communist/Neo-Marxist/Crytpo-Communist 5GW Project is underway and ramping up its actions…actions it has been taking small steps over time. […]

  6. […] A term first used by PurpleSlog to describe a 5GW method of altering systems subtly, across a wide spectrum of domains and terrains, in such a way that those living within a system or in a target group would not realize the changes being effected: “Effective 5GW against a state or organization will consist of lots of little operations by the small 5GW actor affecting the larger target actors in such small ways they don’t notice until there is nothing they can do to counter the outcome.” – PurpleSlog.
