Advocacy Anti-patterns

Submitted by David Borden on
Software developers study anti-patterns. The practice can be applied to advocating social change, i.e. fighting the drug war.

Inspired by some of the comments I've read here, I've begun observing and cataloging some common anti-patterns I find amongst those of us struggling to end, or at least mitigate the harms inflicted by, drug prohibition. My first post describes the apathy of despair anti-pattern, and touches on the apathy of denial pattern one often finds in our opponents. The entire post can be read here. I welcome your comments.
