In the latest Circle (A) podcast, we dust off an excellent interview we did with @PeterGelderloos back in 2017, in which he offers a master class on the principles of modern Counterinsurgency doctrine.

This is a great podcast interview with @PeterGelderloos that goes over some of the tactics of modern of counterinsurgency used by states, such as those of enclosure and rehabilitation.

I especially appreciated the reminder of the different ways that rehabilitation can look. When I think of rehabilitation, I tend to think of moderate elements of movements literally getting assimilated into political and non-profit institutions. It was great to be reminded that the media can also be used to divide even those groups that won't assimilate into those that use "acceptable" resistance tactics and those portrayed as "dangerous" and "counter-productive".
