it’s not irrational. Maybe my English is not good enough to explain what I mean or it seems to be irrational, it’s a possibility that exists as one among many others tools to manipulate the right person to get what you want.As you pointed out in the message before, no one comes out and says things. So not saying something does not mean it is not being said.
It's "check" and "check mate", in speech whilst playing it can be said as "that's check and mate"
It's better not to confuse the issue, what you said in the message before made sense, and it was right. It is when you start looking for alternative motives in everything, just incase something might be there, is when the doubt starts, and the faith in governance weakens, that is exactly what we need to avoid.
Avoid finding motives in everything,
Make rational assessments, not irrational judgements. Your post before was a good rational assessment, lets leave it at that.
All depends how strong and smart is the targeted person and the institutions of the country or any organization.
It’s not about doubt or whatever conspiracy theories but when you know the tools, all the weapons which could be used , you can outsmart the attacker/blackmailer easily.
when you know your enemies, your opponents, you have all the cards in your hands to counter plane against their moves. It’s what we call “plan b, plan c etc”
