The question came in response to the post entitled, "CAUSING MUTINIES IN THE WORKPLACE" by the lovable and ever-unstable Mr. Humphrey Orlando. The intrigue by Mr. Fibbs is, no doubt, of concrete validity and frequent occasion. I can assure you that Humphrey Orlando's inbox is flooded with letters from MANAGERS, CEOs, and BOSSes all quizzically wondering the same thing: HOW TO START A MUTINY IF YOU ARE UPPER MANAGEMENT?
The answer to the question, by virtue of its covert nature, should be - and will be - brief and succinct. I'll answer in two parts.

Chapter 15: Giving Up & Joining In
Chapter 17: The Final Switch - It's All But Over
Furthermore, you cannot begin to know how to start a mutiny if you don't know how to quell one. The answer must be sought from the inside - out.
The wrong information is the right information to spread.
Now, this is only relevant when dealing with mutinies...in all other honorable, fair & moral avenues of life, this tree has no roots. However, we are speaking of Mutinies - and they are tragic; they are cruel; they are insatiably satisfying; and they are knotted tirelessly with the worst qualities of HUMAN LIFE.
"Speak often to those you don't trust, and trust no one," Humphrey Orlando once said to me, before jumping off a ferry boat in the middle of winter.
That's all I have for right now. For more, please feel free to....nah.
