Major H. von Dach Bern
1. Basic Rules of Terror
If you resist political indoctrination and the enemy realizes that he is failing in his attempts to “convert” you to his ideology, he will attempt to obtain obedience through fear. He will try to create the fear by terror. The enemy has developed terror techniques which have proven very effective. You therefore must be prepared. If you are acquainted with these techniques you can resist them more easily.
These terror measures are:
a) Surveillance of telephone and letters through censorship.
b) Establishment of an agent and informer net.
c) Arbitrary arrests.
d) No public trials except “show trials.”
e) Arbitrary sentences.
f) Lengthy prison sentences out of proportion to the offense.
