Including theological socialism.

The cultivation of ideas that drum up fear are the most profitable. Throw reason aside, just appeal to emotion. The public psyche is treated like a domesticated animal to be groomed and yoked. Most people do not realize how much psychological techniques are used in propaganda for 'opinion-making' -- most everything the common man believes about society has been cultivated in him, mostly to engender a 'duty' to obey his 'superiors' and to not resist theft of his property and labors for whatever reason.

The fellow appears to be glorifying trickery and scammers. His educational credentials are quite questionable, calling scammers talented is the examination qualities and abilities of a child.
