Hypergame theory assumes that the masses are controllable by virtue that they are unaware of the greater game at play beyond their limited rulesets (as indoctrinated since birth and reinforced via the use of media propaganda and predictive programming and other forms of mass mind control). Once we become aware of the overriding game strategy and tactics, we are able to effectively alter the outcome of the greater game.
“If you know the enemy and know yourself,
you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.
If you know yourself but not the enemy,
for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.
If you know neither the enemy nor yourself,
you will succumb in every battle.”
– Sun Tzu (350)
