You will know you are on the right path to organizing an effective auxiliary when you can accurately say that you have:
- Organized the auxiliary to provide internal support to the guerrilla force and the subversive underground.
- Allowed for the assignment of direct support missions to specific guerrilla force units.
- Provided for its own security and clandestine operations in the above-listed tasking areas.
- Begun to develop E&E networks, safehouses, and re-supply caches.
- Developed a command-and-control structure for the auxiliary, including a call-chain (probably well-encrypted and hidden)
- Begun the development of a compartmented communication system (see the above about an encrypted call chain, as well as the use of open-source encryption, TOR, and other internet-based options)
- Have developed an organized “shadow government” even if the roles are not all filled, and do not actively seek any current “power grabs” from the “legal” local government. On the other hand, once this shadow government is developed, it would be prudent to start campaigning to get people elected to the legal offices…..(just sayin’…..) This of course would require that the auxiliary members filling shadow government positions actually be of sufficient character and moral fiber that you would actually want them in positions of legitimate power. Your second-cousin Joe Bob, who runs the meth-lab two counties over, is probably not the guy to nominate as the shadow mayor of your community, if for no other reason than the fact that he’d never earn the support of the civilian populace.
- You have compartmentalized subordinate auxiliary elements to minimize compromise. If a subordinate discovers a potential “recruit,” he needn’t spend much effort actively recruiting him. Once some minor bonafides have been established, the recruitment effort should be passed up the chain.
