ALIENISMO, EN GUARDIA

Un Alienista es una persona que lucha con armas no convencionales, usando metodos no convencionales. Tenemos que ser buenos estrategas para compensar el hecho que las defensas del totalitarianismo económico cultural son de naturaleza asimétrica. Las armas del Alienista puden parecer inferiores al enemigos, pero desde el punto de vista semántico, tenemos una superioridad indudable.
