Motives behind the betrayal - Deepstash

Motives behind the betrayal

The 4 core motives for people to betray their country are known as MICE:

  • Money 

  • Ideology 
  • Coercion
  • Ego

During his work visit to Denmark, Oleg was fascinated by the country with all of  the free music, the happy, free people and the community as a whole. He fell in love with democracy and the fruits that it bears.

On the other side, he saw the destructive powers of communism in the face of the Berlin Wall and roll of the Soviet tanks during the Prague Spring. It was the ideology as his primary motive that made him switch sides.
