In the near future, freedom pioneers and freedom seekers will have protected temporary autonomous zones to exercise their autonomy to the fullest, without the risk or threat of First Realm/bludgie intervention (some of these exist today, actually). Having these Second Realms will be a giant leap forward for the cause of personal autonomy and freedom, but it’s important to not become complacent:

Even if “we” are living free, the First Realm is still out there and is sternly against the existence of “our” free enclaves.
Therefore, it’s crucially important to have strategies to minimize risk and personal harm if any of “our” people are swept up by the government agents of the First Realm: in the Second Realm, this is known as tradecraft, or the art of implementing the objectives of “Need to Know.”
What is tradecraft? How can it be applied? How does it differ from security culture, if at all? What are some potential downsides to a society/culture practicing tradecraft and how they can be avoided?
