#1 is controlled opposition
#2 is false opposition
There’s only a subtle difference between the two. # 1 is opposition that is bought and paid for. It could be a fake Republican, or a fake Democrat taking positions they are told to take in order to push an agenda that is being controlled behind the scenes by the rich and powerful who operate from the shadows and are not subject to voter approval, and yet, they wield massive political power – George Soros being an excellent example along with the Koch brothers (one of whom is dead now).
#2, false opposition is also controlled (usually), but it’s purpose is to have people of political influence to stand in opposition to something that the majority would like to see happen, but the rich and powerful do not want to see happen, and will, again, operate from the shadows to set up the rigged opponents. An example might be a large and strong political grass roots movement appearing to have success opposing abortion in any way shape and/or form. So, Planned Parenthood or some other person with a vested interest or ideological bent will finance “astro turf” grass roots groups that will argue exceptions for rape and incest, or severe poverty, or extreme deformities etc. They nibble at the fringe of the main argument and try to muddy the waters to “emotionally” bleed off support and create contention and the “controlled” media jumps on the band wagon to reinforce the argument by the fringe.
#2a is the Gramcian strategy. Antonio Gramsci was an Italian Marxist who developed the strategy of “pressure from above; pressure from below“. Example, Antifa protests from “below” in the streets against Fascists. Politicians in high office (as well as corporate leaders, Charity leaders, media leaders, entertainment leaders etc.) speak out from “above“, and between the two, they create a pincer movement against the masses in between (Ex. MAGA cap wearing Trump supporters), and push them into an untenable and undesirable solution – often termed the “lesser of two evils”.
