Colonel Paul Linebarger's Psychological Warfare may well be the most authoritative publication on this subject. It includes the recurring common sense theme that the best way to defeat an organization is to prove to an organization's followers that their leaders are serving themselves at the followers' expense. The instant you can prove to the followers that their leaders have been less than honest with them, it is all over for that organization.

The $1.7 million in bundled contributions from corporate special interests Goldman Sachs and J.P.

No mind on which to act, I suppose.
