A few suggestions in addressing above question:

1. Expose and publicize as many of the atrocities as possible whenever and wherever perpetrated. Hypocritical and barbarous acts cannot withstand the light of scrutiny. The internet is a Godsend in this regard.

2. Communication is best achieved by using the same language, by cutting duplicity with duplicity, by fighting fire with fire, by taking two eyes for for every one given. Develop and exercise the ability to beat them at their own game.

3. By remembering at all times that the cost of freedom is eternal vigilance. Complacence and naivete are no longer acceptable options.
