„Angelika, Angelika vom Fernsehen in der DDR …“

There is this amazing lady that goes by “Benito Mussolini” comme nom de plume (et/ou de guerre) at TheIntercept, an online journalistic venue started 2013 by Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras, and Jeremy Scahill, which went really fast from a very promising, almost Messianically appealing oasis of hope in the oceanic miasma of sh!t of Western MSM; to some piece of sh!t, “visually appealing” thing selling (or “syndicating”) their users’ comments to 3rd parties (exactly the kind of sh!t that they were vehemently criticizing!). Very rarely their articles are worth reading, but I have to admit that I go to that place just to check out what “il Duce” has to say about whatever:

https://theintercept.com/2017/06/25/ralph-nader-the-democrats-are-unable-to-defend-the-u-s-from-the-most-vicious-republican-party-in-history/?comments=1#comment-418363

Benito Mussolini: June 25 2017, 4:28 p.m.
Many of the things Mr. Nader says are obvious…for which I have to give him credit; there are very few US politicians who are capable of seeing the obvious and an even smaller number who are capable of stating the obvious. The Democratic Party, however, doesn’t actually need Mr. Nader’s advice. Once they sort out the problem of Russian interference in US elections, all their other problems will go away.

Those “Russian interfering with the political establishment in the U.S.” issues to me are just more preposterously nonsensical b#llsh!t courtesy of “our duly elected representatives” and policing agencies. Why is it so hard for “freedom-lovers” to get it over their minds? Why is it so hard to get just a little tiny bit of your own medicine? (Never mind it was just placebo!) For Christ’s sake! This is what USG has been doing with every single government in the world ever since! It would be like a teen gossiping about everybody, their families and pets in high school and then needing “professional help” when just the illusion of some people gossiping about her crosses her mind! It all has become so absurd and been out of control for so long, that it has paralyzed politics and in all societal sense making in the U.S. It reminds me of some other whole political establishment/police absurdity that I found hilarious.

There was a TV anchor with a pretty face, stunning brown eyes and nice Stimme, prosody, mannerism, whose name was Angelika Unterlauf (married as Böhme) to whom a journo from the other “bad” side dedicated what was rendered as a love song („Angelika vom Fernsehen in der DDR“ (“Angelika, the TV anchor from East Germany”)):

but it was very obviously satire. Here is the outline of the song’s lyrics:

https://www.golyr.de/lonnie/songtext-angelika-686689.html

Siebzehn Uhr im Ostkanal,
dunkle Augen seh’n mich an.
Was du sagst, das klingt banal,
aber darauf kommt’s nicht an.

Gerne würde ich dich fragen
ob ich dich mal treffen kann.
Ich möchte dir was nettes sagen,
einfach so – dann und wann.

Könnt‘ ich nur beiseite schieben
was uns auseinander hält,
Ich bin hier und du da drüben,
wie lebst du in deiner Welt?

Angelika, Angelika,
vom Fernseh’n in der DDR.
Du erscheinst zum Greifen nah
und doch bist du so fern.

Angelika …

Fährst du Wartburg oder Mazda?
Träumst du von einem Wasserbett?
Hast du eine Sommerdatsche
und vielleicht ein Segelbrett?

Magst du Krim-Sekt und Machorka
oder Coke und Chersterfield?
Möchtest du mal nach Mallorca?
Bist du zärtlich oder wild?

Liebst du Rosen, trinkst du Wein
und trägst du gerne echte Jeans?
Hörst du manchmal ganz allein
im RIAS Rock’n‘Roll und Evergreens?

Angelika, Angelika,
vom Fernseh’n in der DDR.
Du erscheinst zum Greifen nah
und doch bist du so fern.

Angelika …

Was sagt deine Kaderakte?
Warst du in der FDJ?
Hast du heimlich Westkontakte?
Fliegst du oft mit der Aeroflot?

Machen Plaste und Elaste
euch das Leben wirklich leicht?
Und hast du in deiner Kaste
mehr als andere erreicht?

Weinst du machmal und verzagst?
Suchst du Trost und findest keinen?
Glaubst du, wenn du „Freiheit“ sagst,
dass wir dann dasselbe meinen?

Angelika, Angelika,
vom Fernseh’n in der DDR.
Du erscheinst zum Greifen nah
und doch bist du so fern.

Angelika …

Angelika, Angelika,
vom Fernseh’n in der DDR.
Du erscheinst zum Greifen nah
und doch bist du so fern.

Angelika …

Seventeen o’clock in East Germany’s TV,
her brown eyes look at me.
What she says sounds banal,
yet, that hardly matters.

I would gladly ask her out
for a date if we could meet.
I would love to say to her something nice,
just so, now and then.

If we could only push aside
what separates us.
I’m here and she over there (yet, I wonder)
how is her life in your world?

Angelika, Angelika, …
that TV anchor from the GDR.
You feel close enough to touch you
and yet you are so far away.

Angelika …

Do you drive Wartburg or Mazda?
Do you dream of a waterbed?
Do you have a summer dacha?
And perhaps a sailing boat?

Do you like KrimSekt und Machorka
Or Coke and Chersterfield?
Would you like to go to Mallorca (Spain)?
Are you tender or are you wild?

Do you love roses? Do you prefer wine?
Do you like to wear “real brand” jeans?
Do you sometimes listen by yourself
Rock’n’Roll and Evergreens from RIAS channel?

Angelika, Angelika, …
that TV anchor from the GDR.
You feel close enough to touch you
and yet you are so far away.

Angelika …

What does your dossier say about you?
Were you in the FDJ?
Do you have secret West contacts?
Do you often fly with the Aeroflot?

Being so plastic and elastic truly makes
your life over there so easy?
have you made it in your caste?
Are you truly better off than others?

Do you at times cry and have your fears?
Do you seek trust and find none?
When you say “freedom”,
do you think of the same we mean?

Angelika, Angelika, …
that TV anchor from the GDR.
You feel close enough to touch you
and yet you are so far away.

Angelika …

basically the guy is wondering who she is (pretending to be curiously in love ;-)) telling her that the banal b#llsh!t she talks about doesn’t really matter because he is seized by her beautiful eyes …, which did not only infuriate her to no end and created big problems in her career and life, but made East Germany’s political establishment and police (the stasi) so upset that a whole operation was launched („Operation Fernsehen“). They even tried to get the guy to come over, to mess with, imprison, kill him!?! Yes, the stasi was like that!

That song was way more than just satirical love song dedicated to a good looking TV anchor, it was an actual Anthropology making fun of a people at large and „darüberhinausgehend“ (how on earth can you say such an adverb in English!?!) as part of his itemization he makes fun of himself (the guy, Lonnie (eigentlich Klaus Heilbronner), works for RIAS: Rundfunk im amerikanischen Sektor, after all, and you can’t get any more brain f#cked than that!). He wonders what Angelika could possibly mean when she talks about „Freiheit“ and at the very least he intersubjectively “explains” with some poetic license what it means to him, namely:

  • the kind of car you drive
  • dreaming about water beds
  • drinking Coke
  • smoking Chersterfield
  • spending your money and time as a tourist in Mallorca (Spain)
  • owning a summer dacha
  • owning a sailing boat
  • wearing “real brand” jeans

Journo Christian Gödecke wrote a nice piece about that incident

// __ “Aktuelle Kamera” Sendeschluss für die SED

http://www.spiegel.de/einestages/aktuelle-kamera-a-946917.html

Sie wurde verspottet als “Trompete der Partei” und ignoriert von den DDR-Zuschauern: Am 14. Dezember 1990 lief die letzte Ausgabe der “Aktuellen Kamera”. Es war das Ende einer Sendung, die sich während der Wende selbst revolutioniert hatte, mit ausgewogenen Berichten glänzte – und Einschaltquoten in schwindelerregender Höhe.

I don’t remember right now who was the philosopher who said that nations tend to get sick in similar ways as people do (Foucault?). One clear sign of mental illness, emotional immaturity (psychologists say) is that mentally ill individuals (especially violent onces) have no sense of humor. It seems that may happen to nations, as well. Has the Western media taken a vacation from the impeach Trump drive? For how long will “We the people” keep gradually losing our wits?

Well-Known Targeted Individual US


List of Well-known targeted Individuals (political_persecution_US)

Well-known targeted Individuals



  • The historical Jesus Christ questioned his Jewish authorities on the subject of God, was persecuted by his own people and Roman rulers, and snitched by his followers.
    He was a social activist preaching against the excesses of greed, money and abuses of authorities, claiming to be a “witness to the truth”. Roman prefect Pontius Pilate wondered (John 18:38) Quid est veritas? (What is truth?) and ordered his crucifixtion.

  • Muhammad: was God’s Messenger (rasūl Allāh) sent to confirm the essential teachings of monotheism preached by Brahamanic religions against idol worship and the polytheism practiced by the local tribes and rulers of the city. Tradition records at great length the persecution and ill-treatment towards Muhammad and his followers (some of which were assassinated for not giving up their faith). The Message (1976 film) is an epic historical drama chronicling his life.
  • Socrates
  • Galileo Galilei
    played a major role in the epochal scientific revolution as one of the paradigms shifts defining our era.


    of the seventeenth century. His contributions to observational astronomy include the telescopic confirmation of the phases of Venus, the discovery of the four largest satellites of Jupiter (named the Galilean moons in his honour), and the observation and analysis of sunspots. Galileo also worked in applied science and technology, inventing an improved military compass and other instruments.

    Galileo’s championing of heliocentrism and Copernicanism was controversial during his lifetime, when most subscribed to either geocentrism or the Tychonic system.[4] He met with opposition from astronomers, who doubted heliocentrism because of the absence of an observed stellar parallax.[4] The matter was investigated by the Roman Inquisition
    in 1615, which concluded that heliocentrism was “foolish and absurd in
    philosophy, and formally heretical since it explicitly contradicts in
    many places the sense of Holy Scripture.”[4][5][6] Galileo later defended his views in Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, which appeared to attack Pope Urban VIII and thus alienated him and the Jesuits, who had both supported Galileo up until this point.[4]
    He was tried by the Inquisition, found “vehemently suspect of heresy”,
    and forced to recant. He spent the rest of his life under house arrest.[7][8] While under house arrest, he wrote one of his best-known works, Two New Sciences, in which he summarized work he had done some forty years earlier on the two sciences now called kinematics and strength of materials.[9][10]

    He has been called the “father of observational astronomy“,[11] the “father of modern physics“,[12][13] the “father of scientific method“,[14] and the “father of science“.[15][16]







  • Stephen Shellen
  • Vaclav Havel
  • Martin Luther King Jr.‘s telephone was tapped by the FBI, under written directive from Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy. Even though no evidence of “communist infiltration” or any other wrong doing emerged, the FBI used the incidental details about his private life and associations over the next five years in attempts to force King out of his leadership position. King was eventually assassinated[*].
  • Andrei Sakharov (Андре́й Са́харов) started receiving more attention from the

    KGB

    for openly protesting the nomination to the USSR Academy of Sciences of a Stalin supporter implicated in “the defamation, firing, arrest, even death, of many genuine scientists”. In 1967, when anti-ballistic missile defense became a key issue in US–Soviet relations, he wrote a detailed letter to the Soviet leadership advacing to them to “take the Americans at their word” and avoid an arms race. He also asked to let him innitiate a public discussion about the dangers of such developments. The government ignored him. Next year, after his essay: ““Reflections on Progress, Peaceful Coexistence, and Intellectual Freedom“, circulated in the Soviet Union and internationally. He was banned from conducting any military-related research and was widely recognized as an open dissident, who stood vigil outside of closed courtrooms, wrote appeals on behalf of more than two hundred individual prisoners, and continued to write public essays about the need for democratization.

  • Bobby Fischer‘s single mother’s political activism, her fluently speaking 8 languages, previous life in Moscow (when/from-to)? and communist sympathies caught the attention of the FBI. Out of her 750-page file they couldn’t get any hard evidence or (in those times) even determine who Bobby’s father was. Yet, J. Edgar Hoover suspected the teenage US champion’s mother was a Soviet agent and that the KGB was trying to recruit him. Hoover eventually admitted that he was wrong on both counts, but not before he made misserable his mother’s and the chess prodigy’s life to the point of turning Bobby into a world pariah after his self-imposed exile from his home country due to relentless harassment by the U.S.
    +government. A “Committee to Free Bobby Fischer” was set up at Narita Airport. Previos opponent Boris Spassky wrote a letter to U.S. President George W. Bush, asking “For mercy, charity”, and, if that was not possible, “to put [him] in the same cell with Bobby Fischer” and “to give [them] a chess set”.
    Fischer and Miyoko Watai, then President of the Japanese Chess Association (with whom he had reportedly been living) wanted to become legally married, so he could stay in Japan. He also tried to apply for German citizenship on the grounds that his father was German. Fischer publicly stated that he wanted to renounce his U.S. citizenship, and appealed to U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell to help him do so to no effect.
    Japan’s Justice Minister rejected Fischer’s request for asylum and ordered his deportation. Seeking ways to evade for/media/sda2/Users/Public/cmllpz/prjx/wikipedia/REFeful deportation to the U.S., Fischer wrote to the government of Iceland January 2005, who sympathetic to Fischer’s plight, but reluctant to grant him the full benefits of citizenship, granted him an alien’s passport. To his last days he was still pointing out missing combinations by his opponents, still being haunded by the U.S. government, to the point he even wrote an introductory letter to Osama Bin Laden.[*] He refused surgery or medication to treat what initially was a urinary tract blockage and died in Iceland. Ironically, even if he bitterly opposed the way the Russians used chess as a means of propaganda, his 1972 widely followed contest with the Russian Boris Spassky was promoted by Western Media as “the clash between freedom and repression”.

    [*][his movie][*]

  • Malcolm X
  • Alan Turing
  • Aaron Swartz
  • Highly awarded author, investigative journalist and embedded reporter
    Michael Hastings exposed crass abuse of power, crimes against humanity, corruption and widespread contempt for civilian concerns by the highest echelon of the hieararchy of the U.S.-led occupying coalision of NATO forces during the

    war in Afghanistan
    , ultimately resulting in
    General Stanley McChrystal
    ‘s resignation.[*][*][*] He became a staunch critic of the surveillance state, particularly the curtailing of the freedom of the press (citizen’s rights specifically protected by the 4th and 1st Amendments of the U.S. Constitution), by the Obama administration; openly calling fellow journalists belonging to the establishment mainstream media to “declare war on the government”, pointing out that -free press- doesn’t mean “‘free’ when the government tells you to do the press” for them.[*][*][*].
    Hastings tended to be nonchalant about possible repercussions, saying: “whenever I’d been reporting around groups of dudes whose job it was to kill people, one of them would usually mention that ‘they were going to kill me’”[*]. However, in the days before his death, his family said Michael was experiencing a “manic episode” and after a prior visit from the LAPD, USA Today reported that Hastings suspected his car was being “tampered with”. He bcc’ed his war-time friend, Sergeant Joe Biggs, on an email to his BuzzFeed colleagues, advising to them to seek legal protection and he twitted wikileaks lawyer Jennifer Robinson hours before his death, letting them know that he needed/intended to go “off the radar” while he worked on yet another exposé of the U.S. government[*][*][*][*][*][*][*][*], the specifics of which he told his lawyer, but didn’t reveal to his wife, who had defended Hastings’ earlier reporting and protested a slander in an obituary published by the NY Times, “in order to protect her”[*].
    On June 18th, 2013 at 4:23 AM, the LAPD received 911 calls about fiery explotions apparently relating to a single-vehicle crash of what turned out to be a new Mercedes C250 Coupé which after speeding through a red light was jackkniffing and sparking from its bottom prior to jumping the median towards a palm tree.[][] The car’s engine was found without signs of burning next to a telephone poll 50 to 60 yards away from the palm tree in the opposite direction the car was going (defying physical principles if that was a crash), making what would be a right angle to its stop position after the crash.

    The car’s body itself didn’t seem to be that mechanically damaged.

    Neither traces of the engine having rolled or having been dragged to that point, nor skid marks were visible on the road, on which debries was found.[][] As pictures show, the nose of the car sticking out beyond on the side of the tree seemed relatively undamaged given the high speed at which the car was speculated to be going at and the fire clearly affected mostly the driver seat.[][]

    An eye witnesses watching the rescue from her own window related that it took 3-4 minutes for the fire department to arrive, then lots of different kinds of police arrived, who cordoned off the area and were taking pictures. The coroner got there 3 hours later at 7:30 AM and another FD crew came with tools to “cut” the car open in order to take Michael’s body out. His face was totally charred but the rest of his body was intact, that he seemed “too pale for someone living in California”.

    They put the body on the ground and moved it by the arms to check his back pockets.

    The LAPD confirmed the identity also through his fingerprints.

    The toxicology report released by the LAPD’s coroner found minor trace amounts of weed and amphetamine which were unlikely to have an intoxicative effect. Michael’s family attested that he had stopped drinking 5 years ago. No autopsy was performed and the government cremated his body without family consent returning an urn to them [youtube.com/watch?v=ksX-jyze7sE].

    Based on FEMA statistics only 0.26% of fiery crashes result in fatalities.[] All cars built after the mid nineties contain easily hackable
    Electronic Control Unit
    (ECU) also acting as blackbox. Mercedes Benz, known for the high safety of their cars, has offered to “help the LAPD” finding out what could have technically happened with that car, never receiving a call back from them.[][][][uN0C0HYwja0: (3:55) * car companies have gone as far as to prohibit any conversation about how dangerously easily hackable cars are]
    U.S. counter terrorism tsar
    Richard Clarke
    remarked in relation to Hastings accident: “There is reason to believe that intelligence agencies for major powers—including the United States—know how to remotely seize control of a car. So if there were a cyber attack on the car—and I’m not saying there was, I think whoever did it would probably get away with it.”, which was taken as a not so veiled and undirect threat to journalists.[][][]
    His widow, Elise Jordan, who is deeply compromised with the U.S. government[], contrary to her initial stance: “I will find out who did this! I will not let them roll over it. This isn’t an accident[], asked Michael’s friends to stop investigating[] and weeks later showed up on a CNN interview with Piers Morgan on which he asked her how she was doing and what her take was on the “conspiracy theories” suggesting that Hastings “car accident” may be related to one of his typically intense investigations, to which she answered all too nervously smily: “I was blessed to have the time with him that I had, so I feel very ‘lucky’ for that, and [I am] taking it day by day.” … “I have no doubt that he was pursuing a hot story. He always had at least five hot stories going. That was Michael, right now the LAPD still has an active investigation … my gut here is that it was just a really tragic accident and I’m ‘unlucky’ in the world, the world was very ‘unlucky’.”[*][*][*][*]; while, as an example of Hastings warnings, AP
    president Gary Pruitt has allerted society about the Department of Justice
    breaking its own rules, failing to give journalists notice of subpoenas and acting as “judge, jury and executioner in private and in secret” in the seizure of the news organization’s phone records. [*]





  • Yoani Sánchez, listed by Time magazine as one of the world’s 100 most influential people in 2008, is a philology graduate from
    the Faculty of Arts and Letters of the University of Havana/Cuba with a degree in Hispanic philology and a specialty in contemporary Latin American literature, with a thesis titled: Words Under Pressure. A Study of the Literature of Dictatorship in Latin America. Sánchez says that by the end of her university studies: “I understood two things: the first, that the world of intellectualism and high culture disgusted me and the saddest, that I no longer wanted to be a philologist.”. Sánchez decided to emigrate to Switzerland, where she was eventually joined by her son and husband. Two years later she decided to return to Cuba “for a two-week family visit” on a round-trip ticket and, by destroying her passport. She was able to avoid being forced on a plane back to Switzerland.[6]
    After finally resettling in Havana, she founded, together with a group of Cubans –all based on the island– the magazine, “Consenso”, and helped establish the web portal “Desde Cuba” (From within Cuba) dedicated to reflections and debate. Sánchez abandoned anonymous blogging and would openly challenge propaganda efforts by

    Mariela Castro
    (daughter of Cuban dictator Raúl Castro)
    at a forum at the University of Havana, which provided her with both wide international support and the attention of the Cuban state police (“seguridad del estado”). She reports gang stalking (even documenting it with the candid participation of her stalkers!), intimidation and smear campaigns against her and her family. Once, after a call from an agent who identified himself as a police and threatened him, her husband challenged him to meet him on the streets to openly discuss the matter. He was fielded, harassed and attacked by “the enraged citizenry” (“el pueblo enardecido”), while plain clothed police seemed to protect him[*]. Sánchez reported being abducted with other three Cuban dissident bloggers and being shoved, hit and put in the back seat of a car by plain clothed police with a fellow blogger by state security agents one of whom “she grabbed from his balls” (literally!) as she tried to fight him off. As they were driven off before arriving at their destination, one of the agents opened twitter and noticed that the whole world knew and was talking about it already. They had taken the precaution to post the possibility of such an incident occuring before they were detained.[*][*][*][*].

  • Laura Poitras is one of the initial three journalists to meet Edward Snowden
    in Hong Kong and with fellow journalist Glenn Greenwald
    received full copies of the leaked NSA documents[17][33], has been subjected to monitoring and harassment by the U.S. government, which became more intense
    after a wire transfer to an Iraqi medical doctor and Sunni political candidate who was the subject of her documentary My Country, My Country.. She authored the 2014 documentary
    Citizenfour
    and since 2008 her filming work has received numerous awards. After living in Berlin for some time she relocated to her native NYC.

  • Ai Weiwei (艾未未)
    has been highly and openly critical of the Chinese Government’s corruption and cover-ups, in particular

    the Sichuan schools corruption scandal
    .
    In 2005, Ai was invited to start blogging by the biggest internet platform in China, which he did for four years, turning out a steady stream of scathing social commentary, criticism of government policy, thoughts on art and architecture, as well as autobiographical writings, until his account was shut down. He then turned to Twitter and Instagram, claiming at least eight hours online every day. He supported the Amnesty International petition for the Iranian filmmaker and musician brothers Hossein Rajabian and Mehdi Rajabian.
    In 2011, he was arrested at Beijing Capital International Airport and held for 81 days without any official charges which then became a detention on charges of “economic crime”: tax evasion and intentionally destroying accounting documents of a company he controlled.
    Ai’s supporters widely viewed his detention as retaliation for his vocal criticism of the government. Professor Wang Yujin of China University of Political Science and Law stated that the release of Ai on bail shows that the Chinese government could not find any solid evidence of Ai’s alleged “economic crime”.. Much social justice and politically active art and movies have been made by and about him.[*]

  • Charles Chaplin‘s filming and artistic career generated worldwide adulation and controversy from the silent film era, to the “talkies” (media he initially resisted), to then Technicolor and widescreen. His deeply poetic, yet, hillarious and unambiguous messages (as kicking an immigration officer in the butt, which J. Edgar Hoover considerd “disrespectful”, “a bad example for the masses”), rounded by his acting and artistic skills had no par. His depiction of humanity in frontal and subtle ways in an era of slapstick and mechanical story lines moved people to tears.
    One of his early screen persona, “the Tramp“, became a worldwide icon still recognizable and exploted as a meme a century later.
    Chaplin, who could never detach himself from the abject poverty in which he was raised (his single mother was institutionalized in a mental hospitar due to innanition),
    had strong civic and moral views,
    considered himself a “peacemonger”
    and openly questioned the delay of direct combat role of the U.S. military in WWII (which only participated in the last fifth of the war), was accused of a being a Jew (he was Roma from his mother’s side, but refused to “clarify” that matter) and of “communist sympathies”. After arguments with FBI‘s director J. Edgar Hoover, every opportunity was used to generate negative publicity about him, through smear campaigns, from absurdly using an ancient statute such as the Mann Act in order to accuse him of “sexual abuse”, to

    subpoena him to appear before the
    House of Un-American Activities Committee, to being accused of “moral turpitude” based on the story line of his movies declaring him the father of a child for whom he had to pay support until she turned 21, even though blood tests biologically indicated otherwise (which his own lawyer refused to bring up!)

    and to hiring gangs of perpetrators to outrightly sabotage his movies.

    Representative John E. Rankin told Congress in June 1947: “[Chaplin’s] very life in Hollywood is detrimental to the “moral fabric of America”. [If he is deported] … his loathsome pictures can be kept from before the eyes of the American youth. He should be deported and gotten rid of at once.”

  • Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was involved in major action at the front in East Prussia during WWII as an artillery officer of the Red Army.
    He witnessed how noncombatants and the elderly were robbed of their meager possessions and women and girls were gang-raped to death by the Soviet military; reflected upon a few years later in his poem “Prussian Nights“. In February 1945, Solzhenitsyn was arrested, accused of anti-Soviet propaganda and sent to a forced labor camp for writing on a private letter to a friend derogatory comments about the conduct of the war by Joseph Stalin.
    In 1962, “One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich” was published in edited form in 1962, with the explicit approval of the very premier Nikita Khrushchev. After Krushchev’s removal in October 1964, the cultural climate again became more repressive. In 1965, the KGB seized some of his papers, including the manuscript of “The First Circle”.
    In August 1971, he was targeted by an assassination attempt (allegedly by the KGB) using an unknown biological agent, which left him seriously ill but was unsuccessful.
    Solzhenitsyn, while living in a gulag, at times almost mortally ill in hospitals, during the Russian Stalinist era under the direct watchful eye of the no-nonsense KGB was still able to keep musing his ideas and writing his moving and vertically moral novels which earned him the Literature Nobel Prize, by keeping his ideas to himself (not even telling his like-minded best friends) and writing his own notes on paper in semi cryptic ways. Some of

    his oftern cited quotes
    are from “The First Circle” (1968):

    “For a country to have a great writer … is like having another government. That’s why no régime has ever loved great writers, only minor ones”

    and from “The Gulag Archipelago“:

    “If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?”

    “There is nothing that so assists the awakening of omniscience within us as insistent thoughts about one’s own transgressions, errors, mistakes. After the difficult cycles of such ponderings over many years, whenever I mentioned the heartlessness of our highest-ranking bureaucrats, the cruelty of our executioners, I remember myself in my Captain’s shoulder boards and the forward march of my battery through East Prussia, enshrouded in fire, and I say: ‘So were we any better?'”

  • Ernest Hemingway had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his life of adventure and his public image influenced later generations. Many of his works are considered classics of English literature. He gladly accepted the 1954 Nobel Prize money, but modestly told the press other writers deserved it. Hemingway was a cub reporter after leaving high school before becoming a novelist. In 1918, he responded to a WWI Red Cross recruitment effort and on his first day in Milan/Italy, he was sent to the scene of a munitions factory explosion, where rescuers retrieved the shredded remains of female workers, which he described in his non-fiction book, Death in the Afternoon: “I remember that after we searched quite thoroughly for the complete dead we collected fragments”. He was only 18 whe he was seriously wounded by mortar fire. Despite his wounds, Hemingway was condecorated for assisting Italian soldiers to safety. He said of the incident: “When you go to war as a boy you have a great illusion of immortality. Other people get killed; not you … Then when you are badly wounded the first time you lose that illusion and you know it can happen to you.” During Spanish Civil War he was among the last journalists who witnessed the last Republican stand. In 1939, he crossed to Cuba in his boat where he with his lady friend bought the winter home “Finca Vigía” (“Lookout Farm”), from where he enjoyed fishing excursions (to them “patrol” the waters of the Carribbean frequented by German U-boats) on his boat named “Pilar” (a Spanish girl name). He rightly suspected the FBI had been actively monitoring his movements and indeed, they had opened a file on him during World War II. J. Edgar Hoover had an agent in Havana watch Hemingway during the 1950s. The FBI knew Hemingway had been registered under a friend’s name at the Mayo Clinic where “an aura of secrecy surrounded his treatment”[*]. He was treated with electroconvulsive therapy as many as 15 times in December 1960, and in January 1961 was “released in ruins”[*], after which he committed suicide July 1961.
  • John Perkins had been monitored, tested and profiled by the NSA before he graduated from Boston’s University Business School, after which he was recruited for “his potential”, encouraging him to get involved in the peace core. While having a hard time finding information about countries he was interested in, “Claudine”, who knew all about him, showed up at the Boston Public Library and gave him a book with her business card inside on the page containing the information he was looking for. Eventually he authors the partially biographical “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man” in which he critizices his role and describes in details the different types of techniques used by the United States government to economically bankrupt various Third World countries, as well as corrupt and assassinate their democratically elected leaders.
  • Muhammad Ali: publicly declared himself a conscientious objector, elaborating: “why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go ten thousand miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights?”. He was arrested and his boxing license suspended and stripped of his title. His communications were intercepted by the NSA. In 1971, his Fight of the Century provided cover for an activist group, the Citizens’ Commission to Investigate the FBI, to successfully pull off a burglary at an FBI office in, which exposed the COINTELPRO operations that included illegal spying on activists involved with the civil rights and anti-war movements. One of the COINTELPRO targets was Ali, which included the FBI gaining access to his records as far back as elementary school; one such record mentioned him loving art as a child.
  • Lech_Wałęsa: Wałęsa and his family were under constant surveillance by the Polish secret police and he was arrested several times for participating in dissident activities. However, long held doubts about his relationship with the secret police have surfaced and been admitted by him.

The kinds of government-sponsored non-consensual experimentation, political persecution, police and social harassment, as well as psychological abuse in the U.S. exposed by the Church Committee such as MKUltra and COINTELPRO have never been defunded and effectively phased out. Only the technologies through which such abuses and excesses have been implemented have changed and with them their dimensions and scope. In our times, certain individuals may become victims of such human rights violations not for any criminal reasons or because they constitute any kind of “threat to society”, but because they are chosen as dispensable opportunity targets and/or their general views or specific opinions as questionable, undesirable to the political status quo.


Contents


Socio-political context of individualized targeting

Most social organizations have supervened on political hierarchies based on asymmetrical structures of control under which groups of people have been subjugated and persecuted through the abusive enforcement of societal and engineering technologies. Even after the existence of wheeled carts the ruling classes were carried on other people’s shoulders as an expression of “the ‘natural’, ‘proper’ , ‘Godly’ governmental arrangement”[*]. Through such irrationally uncivil and inhumanely discriminatory practices a minority ruling class in collusion with the military and police forces, as well as social institutions such as business, the media, the legal system and academia; manage to control and abuse the large majority of people. Targeted individuals (TIs for short) are the victims used as test subjects and props by policing agencies in their bid for total societal control.[*][*]


Differences between socially mediated and targeted persecution

There are specific aspects characterizing the type of abuse TIs are subjected to, even though, at first sight, to those unencumbered, they seem to be indistinguishable:

  • targeted persecution is always ad hominem: policing agencies start by assembling thorough dossiers with their victims’ “bio-psychological and behavioral profile”: their biography; occupation; financial and intellectual objectives; as “the Patriot Act”[*] stipulates, medical records (how is it exactly your medical records relate to your civic and moral views?); political associations and persuasion; as well as social and family relationships. Victims are singled out, their daily lives’ wants and motives predictively monitored (currently, in our Über-surveillance times every member of society is monitored anyway) and relentlessly subjected to social conflicts, isolation, moral denigration, time-sensitive hiccups, distractions, psychological pressure, conscious dissonance, emotional attrition, covert and/or overt torture with the ultimate goal of destroying the person’s moral integrity and social fabric. As former high profile perpetrator (the party abusing targeting victims, “perp” for short), whistleblower and current activist author John Perkins has related to us, they individualize the type and intensity of the psychological harassment to the point of framing the impression in their targets that they are “reading, manipulating their mind”, “know them even better than they themselves do”, “own them” anyway[*].
  • targeted persecution is very personalized: when TIs share their experiences they can’t find a consensus as to what is and may be, and what isn’t and can’t possibly be. Some TIs complain mostly about annoyingly tiring hissing noises, strangely out-of-place aural perceptions and voices, so-called V2K (voice to skull), and/or obviously non-endogenous, induced discomfort (jerky movements of their limbs, vibrations and heat on specific parts of their body which they can test is not neurological), while other complain mostly about sleep deprivation, obviously orchestrated social harassment (concerted discrediting of their professional careers and/or in their day-to-day lives, gang stalking), constant non-responsive calls and misfunctions of their communicating devices. Some TIs believe that the government is using very advanced classified high tech to do such things as “reading our minds remotely from satellites, ‘as they do with cell phones'”, while other are certain they are just exploiting military-grade technology on civilians and corrupting commercial gadgets in collusion with business and IT companies[*]. Some TIs believe they are being harassed because of their royal lineage, while other think it is “enhanced” racial profiling. Some TIs complain about the harassment directly messing with their children and family or their family members indirectly or directly becoming part of the harassment, while other notice such incidents happening only to themselves while in their homes, their families being spared and for the most part unencumbered about it. Some TIs believe that is just the way alphabet gangs, used as fronts by the government, justify salaries and keep themselves in “a state of semi-paramilitary readiness”, while some other believe their government couldn’t possibly be involved in such irrational, inhumane, unmoral, wasteful and illegal actions. Some TIs are police officers, members of the military.[*][*]
  • Social persecution is performed through political, religious, race, class and/or ethnic codes in more or less openly codified ways (even if inhumane, irrational and unjust; victims and perpetrators don’t wonder as to why certain things happen); while most TIs can’t put a finger on exactly why certain things are happening to them, who are the agents/organizations behind those deeds, even though they may be well aware of perps and when, how gradually they started noticing their own targeting. As disgustingly abhorrent and abusive as it is having a “moral” policeman abusively beat a lady for some dress code issue, that is a social problem with social solutions seen in the open and raised to everyone’s consciousness. The Saudi government has finally allowed women to vote, drive and hold political posts.[a “moral” policeman abusively beat a lady for some dress code issue | Saudi Arabia] Martin Luther‘s rejection of several fundamental religious teachings and practices of Christian Catholics: purchasing indulgences payable to the Roman Catholic Church as a monopoly taking care of God’s earthly businesses, his proposal of a public academic discussion of the practice and efficacy of such practices delineated in his Ninety-five Theses (1517), his refusal to renounce all of his writings at the demand of Pope Leo X (1520) and the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V at the Diet of Worms (1521) resulted in his excommunication by the Pope and condemnation as an outlaw by the Emperor; yet, all those disagreements were all formulated in and mediated by shared religious codes ~*notwithstanding of*~ their social repercussions. Even though what Rosa Parks effectively did was protesting inequality and segregation; technically, she was arrested and fined for refusing to give up her seat to a “white” person per ordinances in a segregated city. That was a case of socially mediated, “legally” encoded and enforced injustice; not a targeting incident. In fact, the bus driver “following local regulations”, considered to be an all around “nice guy” in his community, stated: “I wasn’t trying to do anything to ‘that Parks woman’ except do my job. She was ‘in violation of the city codes’ …”.
  • the degree of articulation, scope and relentlessness of incidents clearly prove government involvement and coordination: if, say, you sign a petition or participate in a demonstration, your stress level will decrease once you head home, go back to your day to day life; whereas TIs’ stress level is ongoing. They would hear voices demanding their attention when they are seeking a peaceful moment, repeatedly receive random silent or strange calls (office background noises or an indiscernible voice talking about indiscernible themes) on the same day, cryptic confusing email messages and their communications attempts to other people will be corrupted, as hits of their online searches links to denigrating sites, strangely personalized TV broadcastings making fun of them (so, that when they relate such incidents to friends, families and doctors, they are written off as “crazies”, even though, technically speaking, perps did hack analog and can easily hack “smart” digital TVs). TIs find signs pasted on their home’s front door or their car’s windshield, their cars parked in some other place, the light in their homes on, their belonging dinged, their homes infected with bed bugs and people dressed framing messages about certain private aspects of their personal lives way more often and presented to them in such ways that such incidents could not possibly be thought of as random. Most problems we deal with in our lives are related to our own ways of living it, objectives and goals, as well as those in relation to people we love and issues we care about. Straneos problems are extremelly taxing and hard to deal with. As a way to derail their victims’ lives, perps make TIs spend their attention, time and money into endeavors which break on their last steps and while seen as single instances, their deeds may seem to be minor, random incidents over which victims’ ego and sense of protagonism are getting all worked up. Yet, such things happen all too often and in well-coordinated, plainly unexplainable ways. That kind of gaslighting accompanies TIs wherever they go, even when traveling overseas for long stays or short touristic visits (which is coordinated with perps wherever you go). Law-abiding German citizen, Cambridge University particle physicist graduate Dr. Katherine Horton with no link whatsoever to any terrorist organization or any such things, who has tried fighting her case against human rights abuses in court against British and EU policing agencies, has been relentlessly harassed and tortured in Britain, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands[*][*][*].
  • Some TIs have likened the type of power and control dynamics in abusive spousal relationships to the kinds of abuses they are being subjected to. Yet, relationships presuppose some sort of tacit mutual understanding and consciously consensual participation of the involved parties. Individuals who accept on their own accord an abusive relationship, consciously know they can stop it, break away from it all if/whenever they decide to do so, and given the intersubjectivity that any kind of relationship entails, even the person being permanently or alternatively abused (based on her/his own understanding of reality) does gain something out of it. You have absolutely nothing to “gain” out of being targeted and you can’t brake lose from it. It is a form of enslavement you are subjected to, in which your master doesn’t even care about having to feed you, keep you healthy and profitable, even if you illusively choose to surrender, “cooperate”. Yet, some TIs do accept such conscious demands to being a perp or a “happily unencumbered” individual.

In both, social persecution and targeted cases, perpetrators’ abuses and excesses are institutionally protected by anonymity and oppressive, discriminatory “laws” and “regulations” (and/or lack thereof), which, as is the case of the U.S. government nowadays, are covered by layers of secrecy, classification, redacting obfuscation and intentionally riddled with loopholes. They tend to, quite naturally, rationalize their actions, seeing themselves as “rightly patriotic”, “‘just’ using TIs for ‘greater good’ medical and social control experimentation”, “‘just’ snitching you for a while”, “on a more responsible, moral high ground”, “good Christians”, … and produce self-serving philosophies to justify their actions at times dressing them in junk science such as “Craniology” and gross misinterpretations of scientific facts, as is deducing a basis for genocidal racism and “the moral responsibility of breeding a ‘superior race'” out of Darwin’s evolutionary theories. Successors of MKUltra’s director Dr. Cameron at the Allan Memorial still try to justify his torturous treatments even if they didn’t have any scientific basis or medical purpose whatsoever. Dr. Robert Cleghorn would not consider such treatments “harsh”, since they were “harder on the staff than it was on the patients, because these people had to be fed and ‘cared for’ …”.[*] The chemist who directed MKUltra, Dr. Sidney Gottlieb, who considered himself to be a “patriot” championed the non-consensual administration of LSD to people in “normal” settings without warning. During the dictatorship Brazil endured for two decades, times from which CIA “operative manuals” are still being found, perps openly boasted about “torturing all Brazilians to find out who the true patriots were”.[*][*]


Uses and Abuses of Technologies

From the invention of agriculture, writing and later the printing press, to the initial adoption of the social institution of the census primarily for organizational and taxing purposes, to its utilitarian repurposing for social control and repression by the Romans which, as chronicled in the Bible[*], had widespread social repercussion even influencing religion; we, as sharing members in society, have lived through the complex dynamics of interrelationships established by societal and engineering technologies. We have tried to cohesively raise to our collective consciousness their effects and consequences while devising self-control and check-and-balance mechanisms seeking to establish equity and justice. Stars beaconing and gazing not just improved sea faring and seasonal farming and therewith overseas comerce and local business, but, furthermore, religious beliefs, astrology and, closing its circle, detrimentally, the scientific development of astronomy itself and the physical sciences. By “‘seeing’ God in the sky and our societal and ideological rulers on earth”, we couldn’t see our natural and social reality for what it was.

The ruling classes have historically intervened such dynamics for their domineering and controlling agenda towards their own and other people, at times corrupting technologies’ very own initially utilitarian raison d’être. As the crucial breakthrough enabling the invention of writing (as a phonetic transcription of speech, not just as symbolic marks), Phoenicians invented the alphabet: a grapho-phonemic code, helping social memorization and communication as well as facilitating record keeping and, herewith, trade. Yet, Plato‘s Socrates in his Phaedrus critically commenting on Egyptian god Theuth’s view of “the gift of writing as a remedy for the memory”, to which King Thamus (arguing about the influence of external artifacts on the individual’s mind) responds that: “its true effects are likely to be the opposite”, since “it is a remedy for reminding, not remembering”, “with the appearance but not the reality of wisdom”, “future generations will hear much without being properly taught, and will appear wise but not be so, making them difficult to get along with”. Moreover, literacy, was used as a means of control by the ruling classes throughout the ages and with the exception of its advancement in its Eastern region, it had to wait for ten centuries after the fall of the Roman Empire to become a common practice. Initially, business and politicians wondered what telephones (direct one-to-one communication between people) would be good for; [*] after playing a crucial role enabling the domination of the Indian subcontinent by the British Imperial masters, the telegraph was eventually phased out by telephones, which utility has been redefined by the wide-spread adoption of the Internet. The world-wide-web, initially designed as a way to conveniently address and share ideas among researchers, was turned into a vast spying network primarily by Western IT companies which served as proof of concept for NSA’s “sniff it all, collect it all, know it all, process it all, exploit it all, …” incantation.[*][*].

The societal and cultural import of technologies is not just technical, the ultimately determining aspect is how we conscientize and effectively make use of them. 11th-century Chinese alchemists invented it but it was Westerners the ones to whom gunpowder‘s most common use occurred. Darwin never saw his evolutionary theories in a political “survival of the fittest” light. He never meant for some ‘races’ to be “more advanced” than others or for a “pure race” to possibly exist. While Darwin’s encounters with South American “natives”, flora and fauna strengthened his beliefs in the common ancestry of humans and interrelatioships within nature; his own cousin, Francis Galton, saw “enough of ‘savage’ races to give him material to think about all the rest of his life”. Darwin put aside his ~*Victorian gentelmanry*~ to ~*scoldingly*~ question his cousin about the preposterous notions advanced in his 1883 book.[*] Ultimately, Galton’s baseless notions were fully embraced by politicians in the U.S. since they were aligned with “white man burden” types of rationalizations and then by Nazi Germany‘s „Blutschande” worries and horrific social experiments. When Kant wrote his memorable critique of armamentism and wars, wars were local, more symmetrical and immediately very costly endeavors, not in times in which wars are “good for business” for very few individuals in control profiteering out of them and “patriots” could genocidally attack scores of unsuspecting people from an air-conditioned room on the other side of the globe as if they were playing computer games. The ethical aspects of his critique ~*notwithstanding*~, are as valid as ever. Medieval Italian merchants wedge themselves as a social class within the status quo of the clergy and the royalty by advertising their goodwill through openness and accountable honesty. They would share their double entry books with merchants they would never meet living in remote places they would never visit[*]. During its abusive, all-encompassing reign for over ten centuries, The Catholic Church has been open and explicit (even carnavalesque) about their ways of social control and repression. They had no FISA courts, nor did they have such things as “secret interpretations of laws“. They instituted and made mandatory the Sacrament of Penance since they didn’t have IT companies doing their dirty Über-surveillance work for them and had the spine and mind power to heed their Index Librorum Prohibitorum to the chapter and paragraph against which authors had the opportunity to defend their writings, while many U.S. high ranking politicians publicly admitted that they didn’t even know what “N-S-A” stood for and New Zealand’s Prime Minister, John Key, manifestly showing the spineless stooges politicians have become nowadays, repeatedly assured his constituency that he was as sure of there being no mass surveillance undertaken by the GCSB or NSA bases in his five eye member country as he was of “the likelihood of there being Martians in New Zealand”, vowing to step down if that was the case; initially retracted his vow, to then admit he was wrong and, finally, years later, resign (matters about which, due to his very job, he shouldn’t have had to crack jokes, bargain or brag about to begin with). [*] [*] [*] [*] [*] However, after politicians learned what “N-S-A stood for” (an institution they were supposed to oversee since it is being funded by tax payers’ monies) through leaks of whistleblowers, after an attempt to defund the NSA, they “democratically” chose to publicly legalize it and increase the degree and scope of their excesses.[*][*]

Our ubiquitous adoption of current communicating technologies has made possible the ongoing interception, recording, correlation and storing of vast amounts of diverse personal data and metadata in searchable, queryable and contextually Zeitgeistable repositories: from all telephone calls you have ever made (both metadata and voice data)[*], to the centimetric record of your whereabouts and people you have crossed your way with, even if you don’t and will never know who they are[*], the people you associate with off- and online[*], all books you have read and music you have listened to in the order you did[*][*], your shopping and eating habits[*], your financial standing and all your financial transactions[*], detail records of all your medical visits and prescribed medicine [*][*], your DNA[*], your facial expressions[*], your heartbeat[*] … “whatever physically tangible form of communication”![*]

Current technologies have enabled politicians to have such a degree of instantly actionable control over every aspect of each member of society that there is no need to institutionalize people in places such as that notorious Ravencrag mansion (part of McGill University), use inmates, military personnel or people in controlled environments such as foster children. They can non-consensually experiment with whomever they choose. We all live imprisoned by their social control mechanism, as if we all were their lab rats. They now have society at large at their disposal and, as suggested by MKUltra guidelines, they use TIs as their guinea pigs in their “normal life settings”. In his 1921 dystopian novel “We” criticizing social experiments by the soviets, Yevgeny Zamyatin recreates a dystopian society in which people lived with no privacy whatsoever in “homes with glass walls”. As he openly admitted, “We” enthused George Orwell’s muses to write his 1949 dystopian novel “1984“, in which he describes “telescreens” as technological devices invasively placed by governments in people’s own private living spaces to individually monitor their lives, explaining the self-censoring, chilling effect of such devices:

“There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to. You have to live — did live, from habit that became instinct — in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized”. [*]

The 4th Amendment of the U.S. constitution (introduced in the U.S. in Congress in 1789), from a civic point of view, basic social contract precepts, postulates that:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects,[*] against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”[*]

What neither “The Founding Fathers”, nor Zamyatin, nor Orwell could have possibly foreseen in their wildest dreams was a future society in which technology would make the gathering, categorizing and transferring of all tangible pieces of information of all individuals in a society seamless and almost costless for governments, a future in which “We the people” would not only willingly enter our own “private” information and classify it for merchants and police to prey on, but would allow for chips to be implanted in our bodies for a mere club-membership[Club in Rotterdam] when the idea that the government would interfere in people’s personal affairs would have been considered scandalous less than a generation ago[Chosmky]; a future in which the very notion of privacy when it comes to “people’s ‘houses’, ‘papers’ and ‘effects'” would be totally meaningless. Policing government agencies have been corrupting and repurposing commercial technologies[*][*] and using military-grade devices to see through walls without any awareness of the people inside[*], monitor people’s movements and radiate specific parts of their bodies while inside their own homes even while in pitch dark rooms[*], using DEWs as part of their so-called “no-touch” torture[*]. Handwritten and printed paper ceased to be the primary medium from which information is read more than a generation ago. People nowadays are willing to pay more than 10 times as much money for an easily traceable, hackable electronic version of their books. Nor could they have envisioned that people would be happily and willingly paying for their own portable and in-house two-way “telescreens” through which they would be tacitly relinquishing all functional illusions about their own privacy, nor that people would abysmally, whole heartedly embrace the so-called Internet of Things[*]. In addition to people’s tacit participation in their own surveillance, electromagnetic storage space has become so cheap that it doesn’t make sense to delete any kind of data about all citizens of a nation anymore and the hardware enabling such technologies is being sold in the market place as if they were dishwashers [*][*].



Panopticism

The “all-seeing”, Argus Panoptes, is a many-eyed, “big brother” giant in Greek mythology by whom we are always “watched”, “followed”, “trailed” in a relentlessly scrutinizing way to an invasive, distressing degree. Similar allusions to all-seeing, omnipresent social control devices can be found as memes[*][*] serving the controlling purpose of the powers that be in other cultures in times in which such ideas were just moralizing metaphors. Since times immemorial, people have also wondered about their rulers and watchers.[*]

As a way to economize on “watchers” in prisons/society at large and, most importantly, make inmates/people ultimately watch and control themselves, Jeremy Bentham conceptualized the architectural design of the Panopticon: a type of prison exploiting perspective in such ways that all inmates could be seen at all times from a few points, which was actually implemented to its very specifications in the late 1920s and was used to incarcerate German and Japanese prisoners of war during WWII: “El Presidio Modelo” (The Model Prison), in the Isles of Pines in Cuba; a U.S. neighboring country always considered part of their “immediate spheres of influence” as per the Monroe doctrine. However, even though a revolutionary writer chronicling his 105-day experience didn’t find absolutely anything worth “modeling” in such a prison, after unsuccessfully trying to fight corruption, political violence and U.S. tacit occupation from a legal point of view after Cubans had fought off Spanish rule and the on the radio suicide of his political idol, a patriot with a ~*petit bourgeois*~ upbringing, notorious inmate Fidel Castro, who was included in the Guinness Book of Records as the person holding the longest UN speech (surely not saying anything nice about USG), who saw a total of 11 U.S. presidents come and go during his and his brother’s dictatorial rule and survived 634 assassination attempts mainly masterminded by the CIA [*][*][*]; actually considered it “la prisión fecunda” (“the fruitful prison”) where he had his two-year sabbatical to ponder about his revolutionary strategies to then; initially, with widespread popular support, start a ~*guerilla insurgency*~ to topple U.S. trained and backed bloody dictator Fulgencio Batista ending in a revolution. Castro’s is not just a case of a very rare individual under catalyzing circumstances, ethnologists studying the consciousness of ravens have been frustrated by the fact that ravens seemed to have been able to figure out that there was something fishy with the general scheme of things, and did not play “their roles” conducing to the “logical conclusions” experimenters wanted to arrive at, which put into question who was experimenting with whom[*].


From MKUltra and COINTELPRO to FISA courts and fusion centers

After the findings and rulings of the Church Committee, the social control programs ran by USG just became less public and more contractual to third parties, evolving and morphing into our current ubiquitous and pervasive technological dependency, ultimately enabling todays Über-surveillance[*][*], which make dystopia and movies from a earlier eras as: “1984” and The Front, feel silly, nostalgic, even idyllic. When politicians and the media entertain “We the people” talking about, say, “the NSA being just about ‘metadata'”, telling you that “no one is listening to your phone calls” with a well-trained straight face[*]. They are covering the fact that the NSA has been conducting warrantless mass surveillance to their own people since before Snowden was even born. That it has been just a matter of how enabling towards Über-surveillance technologies have been at a certain time.

Constant all encompassing surveillance is not “‘just’ surveillance”, the mere act of surveilling whole societies is wrong on many counts “regardless of how they use that information”. [*] [*] It unavoidably is the defining aspect for any form of government to tacitly become a police state. As a matter of course, government agencies can’t help but get “smart” about all that data. During their persecution by Nazis, Jewish people had a harsher time the more detailed were the records that had been kept about them. After Nazis invaded Hungary (just a few SS troops) a massive and thorough campaign of expropriations of businesses, stealing and persecution started against them. It was actually Hungarian citizens the ones who had kept the detailed records that made possible and predisposed such plans. Vocal social activist Sandra Bland was found dead while in police custody for a traffic violation which shouldn’t have ever ended as a detention.

As part of the ongoing Church Committee investigations in 1977 in relation to Project MKUltra a misplaced stash of documents was found that survived the 1973 internal destruction orders by Richard Helms (for which he was not prosecuted), about which US Senator Ted Kennedy said:

“The Deputy Director of the CIA revealed that over thirty universities and institutions were involved in an ‘extensive testing and experimentation’ program which included covert drug tests on unwitting citizens ‘at all social levels, high and low, native Americans and foreign.’ Several of these tests involved the administration of LSD to ‘unwitting subjects in social situations’.”

Yes, those “aware” hippie characters in the U.S. of the 1960s and 1970s were hoodwinked into LSD addiction by the government and not a single one of those “prestigious” universities and research centers, has come clear about it as a symbolic conscious statement to humanity, morality. The NSA, HGCHQ and their partners, as well as Microsoft, Oracle, google and facebook and many other IT companies, and those producing DEWs and other military grade equipment trained on civilians are criticized for aiding and abetting the government in the maintenance of the police state, but the participation of academia not only by preparing armies of acolytes providing most needed “expert knowledge”, but also helping the government create and improve technologies enabling crimes against humanity and entertain very wrong ideas about an “AI-controlled world” in order to justify salaries is seldom questioned and receives very little attention.


Forms of Harassment and Torture by Policing Agencies

USG is one of the largest employers of psychology graduates.[] After meetings in Canada, APA broke ranks with the CIA promising to revoke the professional licenses of psychology graduates aiding the government in the torture, persecution and psychological harassment of other human beings. Furthermore, they have decided to abide by the roster of international law such as the Geneva convention and the treaty against torture. Some of those psychology graduates even boast about their actions and maintain their profitable business “offering their expertise”.[*] However, not a single case is known of any of them whose practicing license has been revoked, yet. Under current U.S. laws, for an act to constitute “torture”, all the following five qualifiers must apply:

  1. cause severe physical or mental pain or suffering;
  2. be intentionally inflicted;
  3. be inflicted for a proscribed purpose;
  4. be inflicted by (or at the instigation of, with the consent or acquiescence of) a public official who has custody of the victim; and
  5. not arise from lawful sanctions.

Since perps have their own ways to corrupt language and “their interpretations are secret”, regarding §1, they may reserve to themselves the determination of what may be painful to you and preposterously argue (again, in secrecy) about §5 that “what they do to you is not torture because you are not in custody”, or about §3 that “Oh, we are just playing with you”, or about §2 “it is actually you harming yourself for not collaborating with us”.

They turn your own home into a “controlled-environment” dungeon, have ways to torture you through the walls. “Ego depletion” kinds of experiments with animals have shown the disorienting and disturbing effect on will power, self-control and self-discipline; to the point of making animals constrain themselves to a corner of their cages and commit suicide by innanition if constantly harassed. Well researched and documented reports on human experimentation by Nazi “scientists” whose expertise was sought for by Western allies and by the stasi show the long lasting diseases and irreversible unhealthy conditions and mental imbalances they cause to their victims.[*] Some of the most common methods they use are:

  • gaslighting: is a form of harassment directed to one’s perception of one’s own personal environment (your home, workplace, car, objects you interact with) in which perps alter it in order to sow seeds of doubt in targeted individuals; put them in a reflexive, alert mental state; always guessing what will come next; make them question their own memory, senses and sanity; in order to encroach, put a foot in your mind, “own”, drive you to their bidding. Perps purposely leave obvious evidence of agency but without any traces to the actual agents as if they know TIs daily routines, their thoughts and feelings; yet, acting in ways that would sound “crazy”, shamefully “stupid” if you relate such incidents to people or law enforcement (who know exactly what this is all about since they are used as perps by the government). Police would neither react nor investigate break ins in which nothing of value is stolen; particular objects in your home being moved around, their order rearranged, at times taken away and later brought back; exactly half of your morning coffee disappearing; someone/something editing a file you are working on (you know a computer virus couldn’t selectively transcribe parts of a private conversation you had); or rip, stain or exchange a piece of clothing you are about to wear for an important occasion. Perps engage your attention as if you were forcebly having a conversation with them, they do:
    • iterations“: messing with a series of objects and/or aspects of your functional life (in your office or home they start moving aside, misplacing or taking away objects belonging to a set) which may be performed in a thematic fashion (the light bulbs in different rooms sequentially go kaput even after you change them repeatedly; or, people constantly telling you your stuff is theirs: you walk out of a grocery store and someone comes up to you and tells you “what are you doing with my shopping bag?”, or you are ready to drive off when someone cloaks out of nowhere to start asking in an apparently upset, alarmed way: “what are you doing in my car? I am calling the police right now”, people paying you a visit show to you fake papers claiming “this is their home”) …; and,
    • mind raping“: is a technique they use to try to sell you the illusion that they know everything about you and can do anything to you. They mess with mindless fringe aspects of your life; say, you use to take a ginger candy to clear your throat on your way to work by your bank’s ATM, which they keep in baskets for everyone to take. You will notice every time that the basket has been emptied right before you arrive; in order to check if this is pure coincidence you will test your conjecture and once you are about to come to the conclusion that if that be the case it is an incredibly unprobabilistically consistent one, you notice that they have started to make gangstalkers stand eating candies in too demonstrative ways as you walk by even if the basket is empty. You would repeatedly find empty shelves at a store while looking for products you need (and only those) and when you ask no one knows. You keep attach to your dog’s leash a token you emotionally associate with someone you hold dear in your heart, when it disappears from the leash, you find it very strange but, even though you can factually check those not to be the cases, as a “logical closure” you force into your mind the belief that probably one of the kids in the family or their friends is pranking you in odd ways or something; then, you notice that the leash itself disappears … and, yes, they would mess with your dog as well, in a contextual fashion;
  • unlike the abusive playfulness of gaslighting, as defined in the stasi’s „Wörterbuch der politisch-operativen Arbeit“ (“Dictionary of political-operative work”)[*], the aim of Zersetzung is actually harming and directly messing with TIs in personal ways and with an intensity that they can’t carelessly dismiss it as nonsense. Everyone has their own phobias, dislikes, safety zone boundaries and illusions about their own “private/secret”, “personal” matters, which disruptions make them very anxious to the point of (as medically studied) irreversibly breaking their psychological stability (George Orwell called them): “one’s own rats“. Those become perps’ currency into their victims psychological and spiritual underpinning, used to break them. They keep a keen eye on other aspects of their victims’ lives, which they will try to hold on to in order to keep relentlessly tormenting them. Their ultimate goal is permanent damage to their victims: bankrupting their existence, driving them into homelessness, institutionalizing them, reducing them to inactivity, helping making them commit suicide or worse. Perps actively seek to destroy your financial standing, biological well-being and mental stability/health by messing with your work, poisoning your food and lacing it with psycho-pharmaceutical drugs (which may also be done as part of a research program for pharmaceutical, medical or food companies), sleep depriving you, harassing your family to a point that they will get angry with, wonder about you. Some family members have gone as far as writing TIs off their grandparents’ will and give them little cash “in order to protect them”, “since they are mentally unstable”. Perps steal your personal belongings from your office and home (even when you are inside) and constantly smash your car’s windows or make your car misfunction. They also target your social and business relationships as a way to make them stay away from you. Some TIs have locked themselves up and severed contact with their relatives, friends and even other TIs.[Ulrike Pope] They are abused to an extent, that some may commit suicide wholeheartedly believing their actions to be a way to assert their own self;
  • gang stalkers” are groups of mostly situational perps “reimbursed” by (no, they are not “paid”, because “their evidence could not be used in court”) and coordinated through mobile apps by “fusion centers” and policing agencies to field (waiting at certain places at the moment you arrive, leave or pass by) and follow you around either by walking behind you, shadowing, or in front of you within an ear shot if you are in a crowded area. They may also ride bikes, use helicopters and/or drones and at times be verbally offensive, physically threatening to you by encroaching into your personal space for no apparent reason or even make physical contact with you either directly or stealthily by using DEWs. There may be laws in the books against stalking in your constituency. Those individuals must sign “confidentiality agreements” making themselves directly liable for “breaking the law” and disassociating their actions from government agencies commanding and remunerating them(?!).[*] In the U.S. snitches, gang stalkers and perps are very common specially at medical facilities, at International venues such as the United Nations, universities and, expectedly, at airports;
  • Gang stalkers may perform skits in which they frame messages relating to private and/or embarrassing incidents that may have happened or will happen to you soon. You may notice, say, inordinate numbers of individuals or groups of people scratching their bodies in front of you too often and in too demonstrative, silly ways. They exaggerate greatly their actions in order to call one’s attention, because as consciousness experiments show, we tend to unconsciously disregard all kinds of happenings around us we are not actively paying attention to.[whodoneit] [“invisible gorilla“] They tend to repeat their skits as part of framing the same messages: after noticing people scratching everywhere, you will be awakened at night by bed bug bites and after you thoroughly clean your bedroom, the cycle will start all over again with your desk’s seat at work and coworkers gossiping about it. “Insulting” skits may happen before or after “injuries”.
  • Julias” and “Romeos” are individuals they send your way after they have psychologically primed you with emotional distress, in order to make their harassment more one-on-one, to gain more control of you. Unbeknown to actor Stephen Shellen, he started emotionally relating to and had children with the “Julia” they framed him with, who later admitted to him to having been a prostitute who had been coupled up with him. Neither the local police nor the children aid society offered any help to him. Social justice activist and stasi victim Markus Meckel related how, even though his wife knew all too well their tricks, the stasi would mess with their relationship by sending postcards from “Julias” with supposedly sexually compromising messages [Doku ZDF History – Operation Zersetzung Der geheime Terror der Stasi (HD)_IzTb6f893XM&t=49m35s] Some “Julias” and “Romeos”, unable to sustain the level of psychopathy, end up spousing their victims, coming clear out of their schemes and turning against perps/the government[tZd9oMtLKOE (27:00) * Phillip Kerr? His girlfriend testified in his favor][Shellen].
  • mapping: is the thorough 24×7 monitoring of your whereabouts and all your actions and interactions as you go about the routines of your daily life, including your behavioral postures and gait, in predictable ways using your own communicating devices’ cameras, speakers and GPS, as well as sensors either disguised in your own home, implanted in the walls of your or your neighbors’ and those outside your home and on the streets. Either in- or outdoors, they know if you are taking a shower, watching TV, having sex (and how you enjoy it) with your love partner or cheating, masturbating, or if you stand or sit while taking care of your physiological needs. They will also profusely go out of their way to let you know it is them behind all of this! Each time you open your refrigerator or walk into the bathroom, they would make the fire alarms in the stairways of your building beep and if something is a bit off their patterns, the fire alarms will beep non-stop until you walk away. They would not only monitor all your phone calls real time, but also all the telephone numbers of the individuals you call (in case, you use another phone) and they know who they are and what relationship they have with you. To perps, mapping is the most crucial aspect of their harassment and torturous experimentation since they need to make sure they are not caught while they go about their business and because it is the prerequisite for jailing. Perps also need to monitor their victims’ response to their kind of Skinner boxing and Pavlovian conditioning as researchers monitor their guinea pigs. Perps create some sort of state-machine-like AI Dooplegänger of their victims’ mapping which bones and blood are a graph theoretic description of their behavior, weighted à la Bayesian networks, which they can’t help but project into their own wishful artifacts. Hoover himself chose as his personal pet targets Charles Chaplin, Bobby Fischer’s mother, ~**~, and Bobby himself since he was a teenager. Even though they couldn’t even tell for sure who his father was, they tormented him to the verge of madness thinking he “might be” or “might become” a spy. They never stopped harassing him even after they themselves admitted “they could be wrong”. Messing with their capabilities to map you, therefore turning yourself into less worthwhile guinea pig, is an easy way to protect yourself as and in order not to become a TI.
  • jailing: is the man-in-the-middle functional-isolation technique they use to contextually surround you with a compromised reality actionably choreographed by perps, for which they must first thoroughly map you. They turn into fax tones the voice of people talking back to you real time while you are heard just fine on the other end. They hack your phones and routers in order to disable outgoing 911 calls, inject their own altered messages, redirect Web requests, alter the content on web pages and results from online searches, automatically delay or delete email messages going your way about certain topics or persons belonging to certain groups and/or corrupt the audio of a video you are watching online. Jailing could be contextual and specific. If, as a way to explain such matters to abused people, you send them a link to the device as advertised by the company producing those DEWs (in that case Applied Energetics), when the people to whom you send the link do click on it, their request is forwarded to an amazon page selling sex toys. They are also able to impersonate you by ~*synthetizing*~ your voice and faking your prosody as a way to mess with people you relate to. For a very long time you have been unsusccessfully trying to sell your home at a relatively low price. You have taken care of it very well and it has been certified as kept in perfect condition and is conveniently located at a coveted area of town. Some perps pretending to be interested in purchasing it would talk to you in odd ways trying to find out what your future plans are, then go South. However, jailing never works 100% realiably. Change encounters, happenings and incidents they can’t fully control real-time will invariably fall through its cracks. Some people will find out about your home and contact you. It seems this time you do have a true prospective buyer who finds your home ideal for more than one good reason, when, all of a sudden, without rhyme or reason, they go South as well. Later in life you find out “‘you’ had left offensive messages in their cell phone using foul language”, in which “‘you’ tried to raise the price” and when they tried to reach out to you to clarify the situation, “‘you’ continued being rude, irrational and told them off” …


The what, how, why, … of individual targeting

Individualized targeted persecution is a vast and complex issue encompassing many aspects pertaining from political abuses; unwarranted, crassly sadistic excesses by policing agencies; legal encumbrances and the professional, ethical aspects surrounding non-consensual experimentation; to societal awareness, and our individual and collective social health, morality and humanity even if you are not a TI. Since our minds are not trained for that kind of extra psychological and cognitive stress, especially during the initial phases of their targeting many TIs feel emotionally overwhelmed and mentally, physically exhausted worrying about questions which may accompany them for the rest of their lives: why me?, who is doing this?, how will I be able to cope with such issues and go on with my life, continue my career?, how do you relate such matters to your family without permanently ~*estranging yourself*~ from them?… At the very least, learning the scope and dimensions of the technical and social aspects of such questions will help TIs manage and possibly even be successful in their lives, as have been the cases of Charles Chaplin and Bobby Fischer.


Literature and the arts

Transcending their times and circumstances through deeply introspective cogitations about the human condition, historians, writers and artists, from one of the first histories by Herodotus (fifth century BC) and Juvenal (late 1st and early 2nd century AD) wondering about ipsos custodes (the watchers themselves), to George Orwell‘s 1984 and Hannah Arendt‘s “Banality of Evil“, have documented and warned society through literature, films, songs, Anthropologies and even cartoons about political excesses and abuses. Some of the most insightful and popular have been:

Ws of individual targeting US

What, how, why, … of Targeted Individual (political_persecution_US)

Who becomes a target?

There is no single, clear-cut discerning rule as to whom will perpetrators likely choose as a target. As Ted Kennedy pointed out: their “extensive testing and experimentation program, … included covert drug tests on unwitting citizens at all social levels, high and low, native Americans and foreign”. They may probably argue that: “for ‘scientific’ reasons, since their aim is total societal control, in order not to bias their ‘research’ they must include all kinds of people”:

  • some TIs believe they are being used for medical experimentation due to their blood type or for some other medical condition or biological specificity (in some cases doctors have even told them)
  • some TIs are morally motivated towards what they see as their selfless activism for socially progressive causes, while others may be seen as reactionary and morally backward as they could possibly be, other couldn’t care less about political theatrics one way or the other and those who see the good, bad and ugly aspects to the left and to the right
  • some TIs believe they are being targeted, because they are whistleblowers, but then there are high profile whistleblowers whom the government doesn’t target
  • as the Church Committee hearings showed, in the U.S. they do tend to target more women and girls for experimentation and as victims for their training. Most TIs think that difference is due to the fact that men, generally speaking, are less communicative when it comes to matters relating to their bodily and mental health and are more likely to act out violently towards perps or the general public. Not that the government cares that much about it, but they certainly don’t welcome press coverage to those matters.
  • they also tend to target individuals:
    • who are “free spirits”, not group people molded by the norms they frame and control;
    • who are not seen as central in their social groups (instead of choosing Meryl Streep or Jack Nicholson they go for relatively marginal actor Stephen Shellen);
    • more central figure heads in case of minorities;
    • whom they can more easily attempt to isolate, “own”, engage interpersonally
    • who are considered “socially awkward”, “crazies” by their peers; so, their claims will be more likely disbelieved, dismissed;
    • as representative quotas of their demographics;
    • in all professions and trades.

What does actually happen to you?

It depends on what perpetrators (among them psychology graduates) consider to be your “bio-psychological and behavioral profile” and your own functional and social environment. Their harassment towards you may be part of their “operational psychology” school work and training.[theintercept.com_20150807_psychologists-work-gchq-deception-unit-inflames-debate-among-peers.html][20150714_cia-involving-psychologists-torture-sounds-bad-ok.html][theintercept.com_20150430_emails-show-close-relationship-psychology-group-cia.html][20161206_breakfast-of-torturers-a-former-cia-psychologist-promotes-his-memoir.html][20141017_blowing-whistle-cia-torture-beyond-grave.html][madinamerica_201705_psychiatry-defends-its-antipsychotics-case-study-of-institutional-corruption.html] You will definitely notice peculiar things happening to you, interfering with the course of your regular life, which can’t possibly be random, are articulated by means of some obvious agency; yet, without a trace to the perps and obviously directed at you. TI social justice activist Bruno Marchesani, who “had a stroke” at 53, related to us the story of a blind TI that decided to study psychology in order to help other TIs. Perpetrators zapped her fingers so she couldn’t read after which she expressed in meetings with her TI support group that she did feel suicidal. Perpetrators never stopped harassing her. She did commit suicide.[*]


How do I exit such a situation?

You can’t. It is like a chronic disease for which there is no cure even if you had the money to pay for it. The best you can do is manage it as functionally, healthily, morally and spiritually well as you possibly can. Unless, say, you are being used for a very specific type of medical research, once you are included in and “managed” through their lists, they use you for their purpose in various well compartmentalized ways. Gang stalkers would not know of other perps training DEWs on you and they would not know of smear campaigns directed at you at work, nor will they know that you are being used for non-consensual experimentation. Even after you die they keep you in those dedicated data repositories as a correlating entry to possibly target other people who had related to you or show similar patterns of behavior.[theIntercept.com: “after you die”] If, say, you go to the doctor or hire a lawyer, all they do is case those developments. There are very few people who claim to have escaped their own targeting to whatever extent they believe, by walking away from their homes without telling absolutely anybody or hinting in any way towards the preparation of their plans, changing their look, crossing jurisdictional borders into another country and remaining in hiding with the help of their family not even letting employers know where they live. However, they noticed that they were accompanied in their one-way, run-away public transportation trip and welcomed at their destination.[Thomas Jefferson][lady]


What kinds of people would do such things to other people?


Pretty much anyone! As exhaustively tested and cased social experiments have shown, most people would knowingly and carelessly harassed and even harm other people. The “Obedience to Authority” social experiment showed how a mere pretense of authority would be enough for people to induce irreversibly harming electro-convulsive torture on unwilling persons and even keep doing so while their apparent victim wasn’t responsive anymore. The Stanford prison experiment showed how people at some take seriously the roles of what initially was a playful arrangement. The Rosenhan experiment vertically showed that there is from very little to nothing provably scientific about psychiatry and psychology. Ironically inmates were able to easily tell apart the fake impostors posing as mentally ill from true patients, while institutional “subject matter experts” were repeatedly duped! The fundamental test case of Project ARTICHOKE (predecessor of MK-Ultra) was: “Can we get control of an individual to the point where he will do our bidding against his will and even against fundamental laws of nature, such as self-preservation?” You’d wonder what kinds of people would have such preoccupations. Foucault’s anthropologies studied the social aspects of what is understood as “morally acceptable” and what is seen as a “mental illness”.[Foucault: “morally acceptable”][Foucault: “mental illness”] Hannah Arendt‘s “banality of evil” thesis debunked the idea that there was anything intrinsic in their genetics or drastically different in their moral or social points of view that conditioned Nazis to end up embracing inhumanely horrific social developments. In fact, the U.S. government with their Western countries acolytes and local collaborators, have 8-timed the genocidal ratio of Nazi Germany during WWII and not a single one of their “Pulitzer Prize”, “freedom-of-speech” Western mainstream media has substantially questioned any of it (they would talk in Aesopic ways, not even mentioning his name while talking about Snowden’s revelations). Yet, they consider themselves to be “freedom lovers”, “spreading democracy”, whose genocidal abuses are just “mistakes”.[][][][]. Those consciousness studies show no correlation whatsoever with class, political persuasion, intellectual prowess, nationality, ethnic group, financial standing, race or gender. It seems to be something you individually have going on inside of you or not. After participants in the Rosenhan experiment learned that they were the actual subjects of experimentation and asked why they would do such things to another person, how exactly they understand the golden rule, most of them are surprised and tend to easily downplay, rationalize their actions. Yes, you may find daddy’s girls and that person that is a good friend of your priest doing horrendous things to other people.[parking lot] Most people who either have been victims of and/or know first hand about such abuses cannot rationalize any of it to any extent and do oppose harassing and torturing other people. Many of the people who served as escorts to Muslim children after 9/11 were the grandchildren of Japanese people who were interned during WWII just for being “Japanese”.[NY Times] Even though other social experiments, well-known to marketeers, the establishment media and politicians, show how just barely semantically related perceptions, such as fart smell, can drastically influence people’s responses on a survey relating to supposedly moral issues; the relationship between perpetrator and victim in those experiments was merely situational. They haven’t studied, in addition to presenting an “authority figure” giving “orders to be followed”, the effect of remunerating perpetrators, using actual “authority figures” belonging to the structures of control they are part of and/or suggesting to perpetrators the victims as belonging to “the others’ group”; say: Muslim people in Western countries, Arabic or Spanish speakers in the U.S., Egypt’s Christian Coptic minority, or “illegal immigrants”[*]. People bathing in an Italian beach didn’t care to rescue two gypsy girls crying out for help and continued carelessly sun bathing next to their corpses.
[*] [*]
[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1038747/The-world-shocked-Italian-sunbathers-ignoring-dead-gipsy-girls–But-Italy-showing-chilling-Roma-children.html][https://www.theguardian.com/world/2008/jul/21/italy.race] After “freedom lovers” systematically mess with and destroy the social infra structure of their countries, when displaced people seek livable conditions somewhere else, we let “illegal immigrants” sink in the sea, as we enjoy the celebrity status we have granted Malala Yousafzai and Shyima Hall. [*] [*]
Just by noticing the kinds of games that children and adults get addicted to, such as “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City” and “Pokemon-Go“, it is obvious how easily people would find stalking and harassing other people as something “fun” to do.[*]

There are, however, “indicators” relating to certain “psychological profiles” which potentially qualify “good candidates” to become snitches and perpetrators. In an interview about his movie, “Snowden“, Steven Spielberg wondered how is it possible that out of circa 20,000 employees at the NSA just one (actually a few) could see that what they are secretly doing to the world at large is wrong on many counts and Intelligence Committee Chair Representative Mike Rogers has some peculiar philosophical interpretations of his own about the “tree falling in the forest” conundrum.[Spielberg 20,000][https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20131029/18020225059/mike-rogers-you-cant-have-your-privacy-violated-if-you-dont-know-about-it.shtml]

Alexander Luria published his study of aspects characterizing the minds of such psychological freaks, “The Mind of a Mnemonist“; and Neurobiologist Kent Kiehl has been extensively researching the brain of psychopaths and found a very high correlation between the propensity towards psychopathic behavior with the low metabolic activity of the amygdalae as part of the limbic system (feelings) and lack of the connecting interneurons to the prefrontal cortex (rationality). He asked to do the same experiments with police and he was allowed to do so under the condition that he doesn’t publish his findings!?! (Did he continue his research with politicians and and plutocrats?). There indeed seems to be such a thing as “the minds of shills, snitches, perps, police, politicians and plutocrats”, which manifest itself in and correlate with what they consider to be means and ends of their deeds, how transparently they act and how honestly they show their intentions, the kinds of folks they tend to associate with and why, and their general smarts. Merely being an “educated” person doesn’t to incline the scale one way or the other. 1918 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, Fritz Haber, didn’t seem to see any moral implications of his scientific contributions, personally overseeing the first “successful” use of chlorine gas resulting in over 67,000 casualties. Plenty of academics more or less directly aid governments in the technical developments of various genocidal devices and techniques; yet, having high IQs constitute enough legal grounds for police departments not to allow such prospects into their ranks[Lysander][]. If you watch the arrest of social activist Sandra Bland you will notice that, emotions aside, the police officer didn’t seem to be able to understand at all Bland’s very basic question: “Why am I being arrested?”. Those kinds of folks belonging to structures of control, who understand reality through “following orders” kinds of reasonings go berserk when confronted with the idea that things do and should happen for intrinsic, natural and explainable reasons. Something that toddlers understand. Unarmed Eric Garner was jumped by 4 police officers and asphyxiated on the spot prompted by what probably was initiated by lip service and quickly escalated from a banal argument to his murder by NYPD officers Daniel Pantaleo and Justin Damico. Regarding “ipsos custodes” (the watchers themselves) matters, you may wonder what is inside of the adult mind of a U.S. Army General with 40 years of service and chief of the NSA and the U.S. Cyber Command, when he models his “Information Dominance Center” with “Star Trek’s Enterprise” themes.[https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/sep/15/nsa-mind-keith-alexander-star-trek]. NSA employees themselves express their anxiety about being watched and snitched at work as being “unprofessional”, are able to make such preposterous associations as “the Socrates of the NSA” (which to anyone with some sense of reality who knows who Socrates was and what the NSA does, may sound like “child molesters for peace” or “the St. Francis of CIA’s torture chambers”). After the OPM hack. Those individuals expressed their concern about such “private” data being used to blackmail them (epically poetic, indeed!) and used public monies to pay themselves insurance.[theIntercept.com: Socrates of the NSA][theIntercept.com: Zelda]


Why doesn’t the government stop such abuses and excesses?

Those kinds of questions should be directed to government officials. As we well know, they have never stopped lying to, abusing and manipulating people. All they do is use the media and a few figure heads as fronts to quiet concerns of those “morally sophisticated” among “We the people”. Governments nowadays are huge bureaucracies with relatively small and unimportant PR fronts (the politician faces you vote for “in order to ‘uphold democracy'”). You may very rarely find within the government individuals like Ron Wyden who at least have a civic sense of their duty, but their public statements would not be clear and revealing enough for people to make sense of what they say, so people have to rely on leaks to understand what they mean and learn about what the government is doing with their tax monies and in their names. There are ways to influence government decisions as it happened with the SOPA reversal and when The Yes Men have made some of the most corrupt USG agencies change in important ways[] … [(41:15) * two weeks ago a very close vote in the house on whether the gov was going to reign in NSA’s bulk collection of our phone records 217-205, because people actually called their representatives], but the large majority of people either can’t believe or choose not to accept that the government actively does such things to people they know who are not criminally minded in any way. It is less morally and cognitively demanding; (“it makes more sense”) to write off TIs as “crazies”, guard one’s own normalcy bias.


… but why?

Again, those are the types of questions which should be directed to them. The kinds of control freaks who tend to gravitate towards politics and policing agencies would seize upon any chance they have to be more domineering and controlling. They use “National Security” excuses, as a relatively nice, more-responsible sounding way to tell “We the people” to shut up and “find our place”. In the late 1980’s and into the 1990’s, when the “freedom-loving” Western world was partying “the end of the cold war” after “winning it to ‘freedom-hating’ communism”; as the Russian government dismantled the Warsaw pact, shutdown their military basis around the world, unilaterally stopped patrolling the coasts of NATO countries with nuclear submarines and methodically went through complex and laborious diplomatic endeavors to return countries to the many peoples of the former Soviet Union; they seemed to have seen themselves without ways to justify salaries. In those times, the Internet started to be widely embraced. They saw the opportunity to redefine themselves as some sort of technologically-based, pan-governmental Catholic Church with some business-oriented AI God. The 1990’s was also the time when economical and political aberrations such as TPP came to fruition. “We the people” went from being offered services and products to becoming the products to be sold and bought, on both, an individual and a collective level. In order for them to maximize the profit from “their products”, they needed to know as much as possible about us. The ubiquitous adoption of new technologies and forms of social communication offered them a platform to easily and seamlessly maximize their profit. Benito Mussolini defined fascism as “the merger of corporate and political power” and President Eisenhower warned us about the the military industrial complex growing out of hand. You may wonder how is it exactly that Coca Cola got into the business of worrying about PITA. [bvl0pWKaZ14: (11:00) * Coca Cola seeking services of private policing contractors to go against PITA]. Isn’t it enough for them, that so many people in the U.S. suffer from obesity and diabetes? Nowadays, business, politics, police, justice, the media and academia have merged into one and the same thing. After remaining in the shadows for a while after the Church Committee, the TI phenomenon resumed as a renewed version of MK-Ultra and COINTELPRO in one in the 1990s. Interestingly, the “helping others” social experiment [Thinking Fast and Slow page 170] also confirms the approximate (1/3) ratio of people who would act based on their sense of morality, disregarding other factors. As all those variously cased and repeated consciousness studies show most people are not as decent, morally grounded and heroic as we may like to believe, which may be a neurobiological, anthropological issue. What we shouldn’t do is allow these types of folks with that kind of mindset take over the world.


Why don’t lawyers and legal agencies such as the ACLU and the Public Defenders Office offer help? Isn’t that their job?

Lawyers who know about the TI phenomenon choose not to get close to anything related to it, not even talk about it. Some take the money knowing well that all they are doing is draining TIs savings, which is also one of perps’ goals. The public defenders office is part of the government and would only take specific complaints about public officials and workers of government agencies; so, since perps act as non entities from the shadows, they wouldn’t even register our cases. The ACLU certainly knows about such abuses since MK-Ultra and COINTELPRO times, but they don’t take us seriously, as they have actually told some of us, because: “you haven’t been formally accused of anything”, even though they know all too well this is exactly their modus operandi when it comes to us.[ipsoscustodes] Interestingly, the ACLU proudly defends the legal rights of members of KKK and neo-facist organizations, arguing that it is exactly those cases that USG uses to then pass general laws infringing on everyone’s else’s rights.[][] However, for some reason they don’t dare to touch TI related issues . Very well informed, ex-NSA powerhouses William Binney and Kirk Wiebe have decided to run a survey in order to investigate such matters even though they haven’t been targeted as other ex NSA employees have[Karen]. Wouldn’t you expect for the ACLU to do at least something about such crass human rights abuses?[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLPSYFJM_SI][https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sz44nifL-dI]


How many TIs are there in the U.S.?

After the Church Committee, social control and repression in the U.S. adopted a subcontracting and decentralized model, which makes difficult estimating hard figures. Even on a county level perps have received all kinds of military grade technology with which then they need training.[] Some TIs have estimated the figure in the U.S. to be anywhere in the 10,000s, while other think it to be much larger than that especially if you include the “collateral damage” to family members. In fact, most TIs believe that that figure only reflects the individuals who don’t comply, that most people they target rationalize their actions to themselves as “being smart enough to get it” and choose to put their own cowardice and spineless character to good use for them.


How do I disabuse myself?

Easy! Expose them! They will invariably stop or start being less obvious and aggressive once they notice you are recording and exposing their actions.


What constitutes self defense in such cases of abuse?

As martial arts practitioners do, exploit their offense to strategize your reactions. For more than one good reason, people with something to do, some brains and healthy senses don’t spend their time snitching and harassing other people, but there is absolutely no law saying that someone can’t, say, put up a park bench or CCTV cameras right in front of your property or from a neighbors’ directed towards your home. Most snitches and perps are misinformed about the people they target. If say they belong to a pedophile neighborhood alert and they are told to watch out for that person driving or walking by, they assume you may be a potential child molester. They tend to be the kinds of people who see themselves as James Bonds wannabes, so they get confused if you in turn start taking pictures of them and their cars and publicly post them. One of their arguments is that legally anyone can take pictures of you that “there is no expectation of privacy” while in public, so you may then take pictures of them as well. If you start following them around, as if you were “watching the watchers” for a while for a change, they get confused. Of course, there are too many perps and you would spend your whole day doing such things, so you will have to “choose your battles”. Moreover, even if they basically use the same techniques, being their technological capabilities constrained only by their budgets, there are also cultural aspects characterizing what they do and how they go about it. Policing agencies in the U.S. don’t like to make their actions and their presence too obvious to unintended persons and they also hide their operatives as well. They spend lots of theatrical efforts justifying mass surveillance, the defining characteristic of a police state, in a supposedly democratic, “good Christian” country; pretending to confine their actions “within the rule of Law”, “The U.S. Constitution” and “morally grounded” principles; yet, they keep “their laws and their interpretations secret”!?! For a long time they successfully managed to hoodwink U.S. citizens into wholeheartedly believing that only “freedom-hating”, morally base lowlifes such as the Russians, Chinese, Cubans, … would do such a thing as mass surveilling their own citizens. So, if you live in a free country, you certainly should have the right to use your freedom! The East German stasi liked for their presence to be felt, but hid their operatives. In fact, as it happens today in Western countries, East German citizens were under the impression that the stasi actually ran the country, that their socialist party was just a front. The Cuban dictatorial government doesn’t seem to understand that you can’t teach people how to read and write and then expect for them to read and write what you want and the Cuban police summoned their targets to openly discuss with them their repression plan and, following internal regulations, even help targets document police brutality.[][]


How do I protect myself against their harassment and torture?

You should always try to minimize the effect of the techniques perpetrators use, not be an easily manageable guinea pig, by:

  • acting in open ways in order to expose the details of what they do: Police try to engage you personally. If they mess with you, document exactly what happens ASAP, write/log a complaint and openly ask the question in public, widely accessible fora in a naive way specifying in detail the techniques they used and call back the companies they are pretending to belong to. Be true and keep emotions in check. Do not try to let people know how smart you are by figuring them out. Let them do that for themselves, you should just describe the details of the incidents as they unfolded footing every aspect of what you describe in facts and falsifiable statements (which truthfulness can be proven), even if they may sound preposterous to some people. Some TI teachers have expressed their worries about USG using minors and school children for their harassment, which should be illegal for a number of good reasons (do their parents know?) Teachers worry about such matters because incidents with their students could end in grounds to revoke their teaching license. Those teachers’ worries weren’t unwarranted. The online news venue, The Intercept, published the FBI operative manuals which specify the use of minors as snitches and perps by USG. This is also important, because, as it happened during the previous COINTELPRO times, perpetrators are “developing their own skills” and “taking their ‘careers’ ‘seriously'”, “looking forward for future promotions” so at times they get “creative”, “imaginative” and do certain things they know to be illegal which their supervisors may not agree with. Some people would rather adopt an illusive “don’t upset the dogs”, “play dead” strategy entertaining illusions about quietly accepting the abuse in the hope that they will stop. That is not likely to work in your favor either in the short or long term. As part of theirwannabe-spy training, they are improving their “smarts”, “psychological domination” mind-gaming skills; so, initially, they map and jail you in order to monitor the effectiveness of their abuse. As is the case with researchers experimenting with animals, to those sick morally deafferented members of alphabet gangs your feedback and reactions is more valuable than their torture and experimentation. In fact, if they really wanted us killed or jailed they could make up a situation and do so easily, but they need their experimental subjects in their study cages.
  • cc-ing the enablers and “whom it may concern” always when you write a complaint letter: say, if you live in the U.S. and are complaining to the Postal Service about their carriers leaving your mail (and only yours!) by the superintendent of your building whom you have told many times to stop collecting your mail (they are forced to serve as perps by their managers and landlords “following orders from above”), in addition to the USPS and landlord; cc the local police, fusion center, the public defenders office, better business bureau and/or the ACLU. It is important that a record is kept about perps’ actions.
  • never accepting any kind of interpersonal engagement with them; talk about, but never to them!:
    Do not reciprocate any kind of conversational engagement with them either through words or innuendo, such as reacting to what they do (even if that V2K may say things you would very much like to respond to). They act as if you were forcibly having a conversation with them already, even if you are not talking about matters relating to politics in any way. You say something to a friend of yours and then a perp standing a line on a grocery store fakes talking to another person as if he/she was being part of that private conversation of yours. You should totally ignore them, ask that they put whatever they are saying in writing, “so, that you can discuss this with your lawyer”. If they get too much on your face or in your way, you should publicly and loudly talk to the situation not to them: “Excuse me!”, “Would you get out of the way!?!”; if they hurl at you one of their “We”‘s, you simply ask: “Who is ‘we’, [Sir|Ma’am]?” If you are stuck with them in a situation in which you can’t ignore them, say, they are holding you at an airport while they keep your passport, act stupid and loud like you can’t understand them, don’t understand either hierarchies or secrecy, like you would not be a profitable investment of their time, a good “one of us” collaborator. German chancellor Angela Merkel seem to have gotten the stasi off her 5 senses, mind and shadow by telling them she couldn’t possibly be a worthwhile snitch due to her “talkative nature” (not as a moral integrity matter!)[] In addition to having a very particular, self-serving way to use language and their interpretations being secret, perps have their ways to interpret whatever they may take as a response from you.[] As Esperanza (“Hope” in Spanish, from Valencia/Spain) relates to us; individuals she believes to be members of satanic cults, have been harassing her and her family, pushing them to the edge of madness for no apparent reasons. Perpetrators found and followed her wherever she moved as she tried to run away from it all. They were exhausting her physically and emotionally to the point of darkness; yet, she had a moment of spiritual clarity, realizing that “if she let those people take over her life she would never be able to love other people and herself”. Next day, as she walked out of her apartment and found the perps fielding her again, she just gave them a friendly smile. They proceeded to follow her aggressively as she drove and dangerously pair their cars to hers returning her friendly gesture with a mocking smile.[*] Perps don’t seem to understand that they are not seen as “good police” by TIs. The truest and most fundamental aspect of respect towards a person is accepting “no” for what it means. Gangs of individuals who are Pavlovian conditioning, harassing and torturing a person tacitly do not have the most minimal respect towards that person.

  • always remembering that they know all about you: even if you choose to, say, illusively think that they don’t know about your second passport you are using taking advantage of your dual citizenship. They already know the answer to any question they may ask you. They are asking you to see how you react to their conversational bait. If they use any kind of supposedly private information about you (to those kinds of folks being a snitch, minding other people’s private matters amounts to “being ‘smart'”, they call it “‘intelligence’ gathering” (as if you could “gather ‘intelligence'”)), simply ask them (trying not to invest any emotions as you do so): “… and how do you know about this?”
  • connecting with other TIs: yes, they have their snitches and disinformation brigades in support groups, too; but discerning the truths of matter and the fakes from the true TIs isn’t that hard. To your amazement, you may even run into apparently good people who seem to believe that what they do is right (those, if truly good and smart enough, invariably have their second doubts, change of minds at some point).
  • keeping detailed records, preferably handwritten or printed notes: of what they do to you with the license plates of the cars, location where and time when incidents happen including videos and pictures you can easily take with your cell phone (use apps to record the exact location, time stamp and direction of the camera); save and make your complaints cumulatively. Always keeping in mind that any kind of electronic data they have access to either through the network as you access the Internet or a black bag operation, can be easily copied, messed up with. A TI related a story in which after being stopped and harassed by the highway patrol for no reason whatsoever and keeping a long and extensive record of what was going on. He then called 911 and reported (as he recorded the call on his own phone): “certain individuals at the intersection so and so “dressed as police, porting guns and driving what seems to be a police car (reading off the license plate over the phone)”, who have been harassing him and his family for months for no apparent reason whatsoever. The idiots were very upset and asked him: “Why ‘he’ had done that?” He made sure to get and keep a transcript of the report. They stopped messing with him/his family in that way. They never know when and where their faces and actions may resurface again. Dr. Katherine Horton related to us a story about a lady who was just an animal rights activist, who was framed by a “Romeo”. She seems to have fallen in love with and a baby was born, after which he disappeared without rhyme or reason and without leaving a trace. After many years the single mother, still wondering what had happened, learned of google face recognition and used it to find him still working as a perp now in Australia.[*]
  • connecting with and supporting social justice organizations in your capacity: “(WE) custodiet ipsos custodes” types agencies such as ~**~ in NYC doing some true activism for social justice.
  • learn basic computer skills: how your data is organized and managed by your Operating System, how to run utilities on the command prompt, such as rsync. Save your own data to external devices while disconnected to the Internet (physically unplug the cable). If you can, use an old computer to access the Internet and another one totally disconnected from the Internet for your own work. Linus Torvalds, well-known for his lack of political correctness, has related to us that he effing never connects his own work computer to the Internet, putting all kinds of faces while he was saying that.
  • Gradually evolve into a *nix based, open source operating system, preferably one you can run live from a DVD such as Debian Live, knoppix or Ubuntu. If, for whatever reason, you prefer using Windows, you could still access the Internet using a live DVD (which can’t be infected with a virus for physical, not even software-related reasons). That is fine and dandy for grandma and her cat, so, it should be for everyone else.
  • use less actively privacy-violating software such as the TOR browser and duckduckgo.com as search engine.
  • keeping police and perps at a safe distance, not inviting them in if you get a knock on your door from them: in certain jurisdictions you would be tacitly inviting them to search your apartment. You just stand on the door, asking and repeating to them “what do you want?” and “am I arrested?”, anything extra you say to them, they will use for their playful nonsensical back and forths.
  • taking quite simple and effortless measures such as:
    • not giving them any excuses to get you off base while committing any kinds of petite crimes as minor as you may consider them to be and even if “everybody does it”, remember that all they need is just one mistake in order to irreversibly mess with your life;
    • reading off and writing on paper;
    • not using wireless networking (disabling it on your computer’s BIOS or, better yet, physically severing the internal wireless device of your computer), unplugging your CAT5 cable, using wired-only routers;
    • not using cell phones or only for emergencies and keeping them in a Faraday cage, otherwise;
    • playing out music and/or office noises while you talk on the phone (so that they can’t automatically transcribe your conversations, will have to use perps to actually listen to, work the monkey way, which makes it more socially involving, time consuming and costly to them);
    • putting your bed on a vibration-proof frame;
    • sleeping in a Faraday cage
    • not accepting drinks or food being handed to you in restaurants and bars and drinking always running water from places used by many people, randomly picking from where to buy or replenish your own bottles;
    • not letting medical practitioners do any kinds of “extra” tests on you unrelated to the very treatment you are getting, asking for a copy of the results of any tests and keeping your own updated copy of your medical records (to which you are legally entitled anyway), bring a family member or person you trust to the hospital; if possible, into the operating room with you;
    • totally stop or minimize your participation on social networks and such things automatically leaving an electronic trail of your behavior
    • walking on the side walk against car traffic;
    • trying to make your behavior as ephemeral as conveniently possible to you; keeping in mind that the more predictable their mapping of your behavior is, the easier you are making for them to mess with you.
  • not allowing for their harassment to totally frame, occupy, derail your life, make you do things you are not comfortable with (which could make some of the previous suggestions less valid). Some people totally ignore perps and police, some other would rather relate to them in order to avoid for their own families to be hassled. Yet, even while you would choose to talk to them, don’t ever talk about anybody else’s business. When Galileo abdicated his support of the “CopernicanHeliocentric theory during his prosecution for heresy and “blasphemy” of the very pope, knowing well Giordano Bruno‘s fate, he didn’t incriminate anyone but himself. He was able to continue his research even under house arrest, retake his previous work and perform his stunning inclined plane experiments.

What is it with all that new-agey, Star-Wars-like terminology such as V2K, VoG, RNM, DEWs …?

Bruce Schneider while studying some of the NSA’s code found worthy of ridicule the funky, sci-fi-sounding names they use in their code[]. All their actions and terminology are framed and worded as to make you seem “crazy”, mentally disoriented, if you talk about such matters.


How many perps are there?


In the U.S. they have networked into an all-encompassing “total awareness” grid linked to policing agencies and coordinated by fusion centers from shoplifting prevention in stores and members of neighborhood and pedophile watch associations, cabs and livery cars drivers; all building superintendents and porters, janitors, security personnel, small business and bodega owners to the USPS, transportation authorities and University departments. In NYC, rent lease contracts include: “are you a member or veteran of the U.S. armed forces?” kinds of questions in order to keep a current map of potential perps. Yet, there aren’t any official figures about the ratio of snitches and perpetrators to general population (perp ratio) in our kinds of police states nowadays. The perp ratio in East Germany was higher than during Nazi times. Gross estimates taking into consideration participating agencies and the impression of individuals who have endured the hospitality of those police states suggest that the perp ratio in “the land of the ‘free’ and ‘the’ ‘brave’ …” seems to be definitely higher than in East Germany under the stasi. As historian Ilko-Sascha Kowalczuk in his analysis of the large corpus left by the stasi published in his book: „Stasi konkrete. Überwachung and Repression in der DDR“ (“Facts about the stasi. Surveillance and repression in East Germany”): the perp ratio in East Germany was less than 2% and of those less than 20% reported on more than one person, many snitches purposely corrupted their “work” and would even befriend, tell their victims and the stasi stressed objectivity and set the tone even in office gossip. When it comes to those times technologies, the stasi could only monitor 4,000 fixed lines and they had very few cameras in well known places.[][][] There are many kinds of perps, full time ones working for police departments and 3rd party “security contractors” and those, being coordinated through their cell phones, who momentarily lend their attention to such matters. There are also those working for the NSA and fusion centers whom you would never see but they know all there is to be known about your life (way more than you yourself would be aware of and predictively so). They “monitor” you 24×7, in order to share that data with handlers and perps in the field. Depending on where you are at a certain moment, live and work the perp ratio may be higher. In East Germany, the perp ratio in media companies was 10% (5 times higher). In the U.S. the perp ratio will be very high at medical facilities and universities.[*][*] Another important new aspect of our times is that all policing agencies share your data, so the potentially damaging consequences of perps’ actions is greater and more long term. Students and teachers, who have found their pictures, names and the private details of their lives exposed publicly on the “canary mission” site for “promoting hatred of the USA, Israel and Jews on college campuses” (to them questioning the occupation amounts to “promoting hatred”), wondered how could the Israeli government gain so much information about their private lives, which they had never shared on “social networks”, which may not only stigmatize you while in college, but influence your professional career in the future. No, it is not just about “electronic Über-surveillance”. There are lots of snitches and perpetrators out there.


How do snitches and perpetrators react when made aware about their actions? Do they know what they are doing?


Of course, they know what they are doing, even if at times they don’t seem to quite see the dimensions of their actions and may be misinformed! They receive direct instructions from the government agencies remunerating them and they sign confidentiality agreements in which they exonerate those government agencies from all kinds of liabilities, making themselves legally responsible for their actions.[TheIntercept.com: FBI gives itself] Perps react confused while confronted by TIs, as if they were the ones actually being harassed, because: “they are not doing anything wrong or illegal to you”, “they are just snitching you for a while”, doing “their ‘patriotic duty’ of being trained as part of the ‘total awareness’ programs against ‘terrorists'”. What snitches do, even if morally wrong to some people, “questionable” to other, and potentially fatal to some individuals[Dialo][Eric Garner], technically speaking, is not illegal. There are no “expectations of privacy” while you are in a public space; anyone who can see what you are doing can snitch you. However, perpetrators actively and intentionally harass other people. Snitches for the most part have no idea about the person they are watching, perpetrators do at least to some extent. They are told certain things they could check for themselves, but they choose to “follow orders” from the government. Once you know the person you are snitching and choose to abuse that person’s trust, you are a perp. As former stasi „Inoffizielle Mitarbeiter“/Spitzel (“unofficial collaborator”/snitch) Monika Häger relates: “they seem to see themselves as minor, innocuous players in the whole game”, who are “just trying to trying to talk to you”, “with no mean intentions”, “‘just’ trying to help policing agencies ‘help’ you”.[Yfl6WTd4oFk&t=5m15s] Perps would get upset if you take a picture of them, apparently without considering that they, as willing participants of a larger network of snitches and perpetrators working for the government, had received a picture of yours on their cell phone. In the excellent documentary, with the heads of Shin Bet, “The Gatekeepers“, they related how at times they have detained people who had no idea whatsoever as to why they were being tortured. Unbeknown to them, they had been “chosen” and hunted down as if they were animals to be “worked” as potential snitches to target other people. Some of those individuals have died in custody in their torture chambers without a clue as to why they were detained to begin with. Those kinds of individuals who tend to understand reality through structures of control and chains of command don’t seem to understand the repercussions of their actions or even emotionally, socially empathize at all to other people. U.S. government officials were explaining that: “yes, they do their best to find out the identities of the victims of their drone strikes” (after they kill them in order to find out if those where their targets), former stasi members adamantly oppose any association with their roles as perpetrators; seamlessly, silently finding their way into the business world after the German reunification; and U.S. perps can’t even begin to understand what the big deal is and make fun of Angela Merkel’s qualms about being spied by USG.[*]][7PWRHb8MZjQ&t=33m00: The Guardian/What does NSA surveillance mean for the future of the internet][*]


How much do perps get paid?

There are many different kinds of perps from gang stalkers who may get low-rate part time payments (approx. $10 an hour) and/or bonuses as monetary rewards and perks such as shopping cards, to the ones working full time jobs in fusion centers and for 3rd party contractors. As specified in the widely used tax preparation book in Germany, ~*„Kont“*~, the current tax code of present day Germany grants snitches a 10% flat rate as form of remuneration[IE3Swn83gf8 (1:19:05)]


Why don’t more people know about this?

As it was the case before the Snowden revelations, there is a concerted effort by the status quo to play down such matters, which is evidenced by the amount of scheming around, “plausible deniability” and time they put into denying it and portraying TIs as “crazies”.[United States of Paranoia: They See Gangs of Stalkers][rationalwiki][*] Have you ever noticed USG denying and misrepresenting claims by illuminati groups, UFO enthusiasts or the Church of Scientology? Have they ever paid any attention to the claims of actually mentally ill people? If, as they claim, TIs are just “a bunch of crazed yahoos”, why do they spend so much effort denying their claims? Why do they enlist armies dedicated to online sockpuppetry messing with TIs’ comments and attempts to network, organize, seek justice at every turn? Many U.S. high ranking officials do know and tacitly admit to know that this is going on[Obama citizen’s commision][Kerry in front of press asking such questions as a statements][Keith admitting it to TIs][Cheiny said “forget that stuff”][Rumsfeld on DEWs]. Even journalists who are not part of the establishment media and are more questioning and confrontational to the government apparently have “responsibly” chosen not to elaborate in depth on the functional details pertaining to such matters.[ … “and more” … ] Of course, since, physically speaking, such devices must work both ways, their statements strongly suggest, what many TIs have been talking about for a long time: the fact that they are using military grade DEWs to torture unsuspecting individuals inside of their homes.[] TIs have also been complaining for a long time about “hearing voices”, which also turned out to be another of the techniques perps use, which, it turns out, has become a technique used to commercially harass people in our days.[][] Also, people generally have and guard their moral blind spots at any cost. Even if one makes the effort to explain such matters and they could find out by themselves if they are true or not, people would not accept such ideas, because they would rock their normalcy bias. Governmental, religious institutions and the media of European countries pretended they didn’t know about it and disbelieved, made even fun of Jewish people when they were trying to alert the general public about extermination camps in Nazi Germany. Lately, Muslims have taken the role of “cultural other” for Westerners [http://neareaststudies.as.nyu.edu/object/kc.media.jackshaheen]. TIs, as disposable non-persons, seem to be at the bottom of their regard.


When/Where does it happen?

It depends on how do you conduct your life and the harassing techniques perpetrators are training on you. If they are torturing you aurally, via V2K, it would happen when and where they could aim such devices at you. If they are sleep depriving you, it will in your bedroom, but you will notice that it doesn’t happen the same, when you sleep in different places, especially a randomly chosen place they don’t know and you don’t share with anyone using a communication venue they own (well, any!) or in a place they can hear what you are saying. They may irradiate you when you are trying to sleep at your home from your neighbors’ places using DEWs, but if you are sleeping in a random or new place (not in hotels or motels!) where they haven’t set up their dungeons, they will be still able to use portable devices such a sonic guns.


How does it happen?

You will invariably notice that there must be some well-coordinated agencies behind those “happenings” because of their recurrence and their articulation. “Why is it that I constantly find that unknown person staring at me when I am arriving at work?, unknown people following me around, all too visibly acting as if they were updating my location on their cell phones?”, “lights in my apartment on, again? I positively switched them off as I left!”, “… and now I find my apartment door unlocked, too? … and the keyhole misfunctioning, as well? … with a stuck key inside?”, “why are things again misplaced in my apartment?”, “why are all those baseless rumors being aired about me at work? who exactly is spreading them?” … If, say, you are an activist trying to visit a place, you may find virtually impossible to book a flight, your cell phone may not work at crucial times or while you are in the middle of an important, time-sensitive meeting for which you prepared a powerpoint presentation, devices repeatedly misfunction in awkward ways or crash without apparent rhyme or reason; so, your audience and supervisors start wondering “what is wrong with -you-” … As the “invisible gorilla” and other consciousness studies show, attention is a very expensive currency, so they profusely go out of their way in order to make you pay attention to their nonsense. It is not like you tell a friend about some news you read on the guardian questioning Trump’s decision to send “his Armada” to the Korean peninsula and then you read those sames news scrolling on a video panel as you walk by, but like seeing pictures of yourself and Dennis Rodman flanking Kim Jong-Un all of you in a smiling victory fingers pose plastered on your front door or your desk at work (during a period of time they know you will be absent from your desk for some time, as to maximize the number of people who see it), on people’s T-shirts or signs being held by strangers, like a mother pushing her baby on a stroller and still managing to hold that sign … “OK, that is definitely delivered!” If those incidents were random, they would be affecting most people in a very dysfunctional society in which business could not possibly prosper. System theoretic studies have shown that just by incapacitating a functioning entity of some of its parts, you rock its synergistic stability, severely mess with it, bring it to a halt, destroy it[*].


What are DEWs?

Directed-Energy Weapons don’t use massive projectiles as carrier of their destructive payload, even though modulation serves the same purpose. In the same way that light goes through an air-tight closed, transparent bottle; irradiated EM waves (invisible light in another range of the EM spectrum) penetrate walls. They can be used without the target seeing or hearing anything at all, through walls and with much higher target focusing over large ranges, since air pressure and turbulence, humidity and gravity don’t affect their aim. However, there is nothing “direct” about them, since you can’t transmit energy without a medium and you must directly aim it at your target As in the case of light, if reflected, the radiation’s intensity will be reduced. Regarding their detrimental effect on our biological organs, they could be generally classified as:

  • Electro-magnetic (EM) radiation: from which, as they affect our biological life, there are two types:
    • relatively less harming non-ionizing (used in commercial gadgets such as cell phones and EM wireless communication among computers); and
    • the very harming ionizing radiation, strong enough to cause bio-chemical reactions in the cells of our body’s organs, starting on the ultraviolet range of the spectrum towards higher energies (shorter ware lengths), essentially, photo electricity reactions are induced in the molecules making up our cells.
      Gamma radiation
      , (γ), is highly penetrating, ionizing and biologically hazardous EM radiation of the kind arising from lightning strikes and the radioactive decay of atomic nuclei, consisting of photons in the highest observed range of energy (highest frequency).

  • Newton’s light refraction experiment shows that white light contains EM waves of various frequencies which visible range shows naturally in rainbows or using prisms. LASER is a form of coherent (with a very narrow spectrum) EM radiation with all its safety concerns and potentially dangerous effects. LASERs can cut through a razor blade from a distance.
  • sound amplification by stimulated emission of radiation (SASER) is a form of stimulated emission of acoustic radiation similar to LASER
  • particles radiation: (with mass used as projectiles) such as:
    • beta rays: are a type of ionizing radiation of high-energy, high-speed electrons (β) or positrons (β+) emitted in the radioactive decay of an atomic nucleus;
    • alpha particles (α) doubly ionized Helium nuclei with a +2 charge (missing its two electrons): are the product of a nuclear reaction called alpha decay. Biological exposure to alpha particles cause far more dangerous biological damage, than an equivalent exposure to beta or gamma rays[4]
  • sonic (guns): During the early 1940s Axis engineers developed a sonic cannon that could cause fatal vibrations in its target body by focusing in the inner vibrating frequency of the middle ear bones and shaking the cochlear fluid within the inner ear, which cause vertigo and nausea in the target. The effect of the kinds of sonic guns used for VoG and V2K, even commercially nowadays, to induce “voices” around you, which you may find spooky and counter productive, is mostly psychological, not somatic.[][]

The effect of such radiation and sonic technologies is way more harmful than the relatively benign momentary local effects of electro-muscular incapacitation of commercial tasers and those used by police. You may get as symptoms headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, buzzing and ringing in your ears, pain in joints, muscle spams, abdominal pain, skin rashes, eye irritation, facial swelling, difficulty breathing, convulsions, irregular heart beat, sexual stimulation, balance problems and erratically jerked limbs. With such weapons, they can:

  • literally cook parts and organs of your body (as microwave appliances do) from a distance by aiming such devices at you and using the intrinsic resonance frequency every physical body with a certain shape and structurally occupying space has;
  • chemically alter the internal molecular bonds, the natural metabolism of the cells in your body which ultimately leads to cellular death, mutations and epigenetic influences which may induce or provoke pathologies and harm to parts of your or your progeny’s body, including irreversible ones such as cancer; compromise your immune system and/or disturb the natural cell processes herewith accelerating aging;
  • disrupt the electro-chemical synaptic processes of your nervous system, causing your mind to momentarily freeze, get tired without or with very little exertion and/or diminish or alter your cognitive capacity and functions, which could be fatally hazardous during attention demanding exercises;
  • make your limbs jerk uncontrollably (as Galvani discovered by chance), which may be very dangerous while driving
  • use modulating frequencies of non-aural sounds in the infra- and ultrasound range to induce Micro-wave auditory effects (V2K, VoG);
  • jam and/or short circuit your electronic devices;
  • mess with your home’s or car’s electrical/electronic circuitry and appliances (for instance, your electrical outlets and relays) to start a seemingly “no-foul-play” fire

Double Nobel Prize winning Physicist and Chemist Marie Curie who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity and helped set up radiology centers to treat the wounded during WWI, died from aplastic anemia believed to have been contracted from her long-term exposure to radiation, at a time when we still didn’t understand its biologically hazardous influences. East German writer, singer and social justice activist Jürgen Fuchs died at 48 from an extremely rare type of blood cancer apparently caused by exposure to radioactive radiation, reported about in his stasi dossier [spiegel.de: 06_DDR_Der_Schriftsteller_Jürgen_Fuchs_als_Staatsfeind.html]. In another case, Scotland Yard came to the conclusion that the Russian secret police was involved in the murder by radioactive poisoning of former agent Alexander Litvinenko. The use of such military-grade technologies by police departments on civilians in the U.S., as it happened with the open persecution of journalists and whistleblowers, proliferated during the Obama administration.[AP guy][][]


How can I know for sure from where I am being irradiated?

Electromagnetic waves are irradiated in forms of lobes which may be directionally beamed at people. Yet, as you hear some sound louder the closer you are to its source, the scalar intensity of the radiation diminishes with distance in an inverse square dependency from the distance to the source. In equally space rooms, a spheric radiation frontal wave will diminish in the form: (1/2) in next room, (1/4) in the following one, (1/8) … This way you can easily triangulate from where you are being irradiated. Notice that all walls in buildings are not made out of the same material (so their shielding properties may vary), nor do they have the same thickness and density; yet, finding at least two directions describing a maximally decreasing radiation intensity (which you should confirm with more directions) will give you the source of the radiation, that is, where the DEW is located; namely, where the lines meet.


How do they see us through walls?

Life is biologically sustained through our cells’ metabolism. Our bodies are like walking furnaces, which thermal emanations can be detected like any other type of radiation. This is how infrared, thermal radiation is detected even through walls, since non-insulating walls conduct heat. They are able to detect a contour and thermal gradient emanating from the different parts of your body. In fact, USG perpetrators killing people using drones have related how they watch as people die by noticing the differences in the diminishing amount of heat their body generates from far-away satellites and drones with infrared sensors.[] At airports, they used both kinds of detectors: the ones using the electromagnetic principle of induction for metallic objects and thermal detectors for non-metallic objects possibly concealed in our bodies, which are noticed through the irregular thermal gradient due to their blockage of thermal transmission.

What “the land of the ‘free’ and ‘the’ ‘brave'” has turned into! USG agencies killing their own citizens for the fun of it …

Some of you (even those who aren’t “collaborators” themselves) may “rationalize” it, get “technical” about it; tell me that they committed suicide by themselves, that “technically” they weren’t killed. I would say to you that even from a “‘technical’ point of view” you might be only very minimally and “formally” right and that you (specially if you are “‘just’ a collaborator” and/or perpetrator) obviously have no idea of what you are talking about.

I think USG is trying to redefine itself as some sort of technology-based “global”, Übercontrolling kind of Catholic Church. While they control the masses there will always be some “somatically unimaginative” people. I personally relate to some of them.

During the “freedom-loving”, “All-too good Christianny” dictatorship they had in Brazil, torturers even boasted about “torturing all Brazilians to see who were the ‘truly patriotic’ ones” and the many people in their dungeons noticed doctors walking around “making sure their targets would not faint or be killed (how sensitively humane!), so the torturers would be busy for the largest span of their ‘billable hours'”

Targeted Individual (political persecution)


Targeted Individual (political persecution). A draft for our wikipedia page (version 20: Thu Apr 20 12:17:57 UTC 2017)


In the context of political repression, police harassment and non-consensual experimentation certain individuals and members of legally associating or ethnic groups may become targets of individualized harassment and repression, not for any criminal reason or because they may constitute any kind of "threat to society"[*], but because their general views or specific opinions are seen as undesirable to the reigning political status quo by the powers that be[*], policing agencies in their bid for total control[*] need to infiltrate, distablize an organization or because they are being used for non-consensual human experimentation[*] and training purposes[*] by states, armed forces, police, educational and research institutions[*][*][*] and/or government-sponsored agencies[*] such as socially organized gangs of people[*].


Contents


History and socio-political context of individualized targeting

Most social organizations have supervened on political hierarchies based on asymmetrical structures of control maintained by social codes and force, in which groups of people have been subjugated and persecuted. Even after the existence of wheeled carts the ruling classes were carried on other people’s shoulders as: “the ‘natural’, ‘proper’ societal structure”[*]. By such irrationally uncivic and inhumanely discriminatory practices a minority ruling class in collusion with militarisric and police forces control and abuse the majority of people, as part of which they target certain individuals.

Differences between targeted and social persecution

Even though to those not affected by such individualized types of abuses they look like the same, they do differ:

  • targeted persecution is always ad hominem: policing agencies psychologically profile and monitor the wants and motives of the individual to be targeted (currently, in our Über-surveillance times this is done to every member of society anyway) with the ultimate goal of destroying the person’s moral integrity and social fabric. As former perpetrator (the party abusing targeting victims, “perp” for short) and current activist author John Perkins have related to us, they personally customize the type and intensity of harassment and gaslighting to the point of making the impression to the individual targets that they are “reading their mind”, “own them” anyway[*]. When TIs share their experiences they can’t find a consensus as to what is and may be, and what isn’t and can’t possibly be.

    Some TIs complain mostly about V2K (voice to skull) and/or DEW (Direct Energy Weapons), while other complain mostly about sleep deprivation.

    Some TIs believe that the government is using very advanced classified high tech to do such things as “reading our minds remotely from satellites, ‘as they do with cell phones'”, while some other are certain they are just using military grade technology on civilians and corrupting commercial gadgets, doubling them for their “monitoring” with the aid and compliance of business and IT companies[*].

    Some TIs get very anxious about gang stalking while other don’t care much about idiots apparently with nothing better to do in their lives following them around.

    Some TIs believe they are being harassed because of their royal lineage, while other think it is because of their race.

    Some TIs complain about the harassment directly messing with their children and family or their family members indirectly or directly becoming part of the harassment, while other only notice such incidents happenning to themselves.

    Some TIs believe that is just the way for alphabet gangs used as front by the government to justify salaries and keep them in “a state of readiness”, while some other believe their local and state governments could’t possibly be involved in such irrational, inhumane, unmoral and illegal acts.

    Some TIs may even be police officers, members of the military and/or their own perpetrators themselves (at least those can’t say they don’t know what is going on)[*][*].

  • even though what Rosa Parks effectively did was protesting inequality and segreation, technically, she was arrested and fined for refusing to give up her seat to a white person per local ordinance in a segregated city. That was a case of socially encoded and enforced injustice, not a targeting incident. Social persecution is usually performed through political, religious, race, class and/or ethnic codes against a group of people in more or less openly codified ways (even if inhumane, irrational and unjust; victims and perpetrators don’t wonder as to why certain things happen); while most TIs can’t put a finger onto why exactly certain things are happening to them. They are left to try to figure it all out by themselves as perpetrators ways to keep them mentally busy, psychologically mess with them, establish a presence in their lives.

    Jewish and Moorish peoples were displaced, disowned and segregated by the Spanish Catholic Royalty; terrorists groups targeted Egypt’s Christian coptic minority[*]; incarcerated people have been repeatedly used for medical experimentation in the U.S. (which is and has always been illegal, yet, nothing has ever happened to the perpetrators and benefitting parties)[*]; the Spartans enslaved the Messenians to farm all the land for them and so-called "untouchables" in India are subject to crass discriminatory practices codified in their caste beliefs. "Untouchables" were the ones shipped to fight during WWII as a favor to their British masters[*][*][*]

    In the case of targeting particular individuals, those persons’ biographies, "psychological profiles", occupation, intellectual objectives, medical records (how is it exactly your medical records relate to your civic and moral views?)[*], moral views and social and family relationships are well-known by the perpetrators. They are singled out and relentlesslysubjected to social isolation and discrediting, moral denigration, psychological pressure, conscious dissonance, emotional attrition, covert and/or overt torture and possibly death: Galileo Galilei and Giordano Bruno were targeted by the Inquisition. As it happened with early Christians during the late periods of the Roman Empire and happens with Muslim people and the "black lives matter" movement nowadays in the U.S., certain people or organizations can be persecuted at large and some of their members be targeted in depth. Students and teachers, who have found their pictures, names and the private details of their lives exposed publicly on the "canary mission" site for “promoting hatred of the USA, Israel and Jews on college campuses”, wondered how could the Israeli government gained so much information about their private lives.

  • other defining aspects of targeted harassment to individuals, clearly proving government involvement and coordination are the degree of articulation and scope of the incidents: if, say, you sign a petition or participate in a demonstration, your stress level will decrease once you head home, go back to your day to day life; whereas TIs would relentlessly receive strange calls (office background noises or an undiscernable voice talking about undiscernable themes), cryptic confusing email messages and their communications attempts to other people will be corrupted. TI will get as hits of their online searches links to denigrating sites, strangely personalized TV broadcastings making fun of them (so, that when they relate such incidents, doctors write them off as “crazies”, even though, technically speaking, perps can easily hack “smart” TVs). TIs find signs pasted on their home’s front door or their car’s windshield, their car parked in some other place, the light in their homes on, their belonging dinged, their homes infected with bed bugs and people dressed framing messages about certain personally harassing topics way more often and presented to them in such ways that such incidents could not possibly be thought of as random. That kind of gaslighting accompanies TIs wherever he/she goes, even when traveling overseas for long stays or short touristic visits. Spanish social activist, Rocío Monasterio, reports being harassed, threatened, her freedom of speech rights being denied and receiving repeated death threats in various instances by various individuals and organized groups due to her legal and constitutional openly maintained political views[*][*][*][*], but hers, even if clearly a case of abuse and persecution involving even the Jurisprudence Department of one of the highest educational institution of a European Union country as perpetrators, lacks the vertical depth into her private life, the articulation, scope and relentless character typical of targeted cases. Law-abiding German citizen, Cambridge University particle physicist graduate Dr. Katherine Horton with no link whatsoever to any terrorist organization or any such things, currently fighting her case in court against British and European policing agencies through the British justice system, has being relentlessly harassed and tortured in Britain, Switzerland and Germany[*][*][*].
  • Some TIs have likened power and control in abusive relationships to the kinds of abuses they are being subjected to. Yet, “relationships” presupose some sort of tacit mutual understanding and conscious participations of the involved parties. With the exception of extreme cases of crass abuses such as when a girl is raped by an older man and per Qu’ranic law “he must marry her”[], even if girls entraped in such archaich ~understandings~ still commite suicide in our times[], from a social point of view, it is very clear to their families and society at large that those known abusive laws and regulations must be changed; individuals who accept on their own accoud an abusive relationships, consciously know they can stop it if/whenever they would choose to do so, and given the intersubjectivity that any kind of relationship entails, even the person being permanently or alternatingly abused (based on his/her own understanding of reality) does gain something out of it. You have nothing to “gain” out being targeted and you can’t brake lose from it even if you choose to “cooperate”. Once a TI, always a TI! Yet, some TIs do accept such conscious demands to being a perp or a happily unincumbered individual.

In both, social persecution and targeted cases, perps see themselves as "rightly patriotic", "on the right side of history", doing "the greater good", "democratically chosen to carry such mandates", "obviously, intellectually superior", "on a moral high ground", "chosen by ‘God’", take their actions as "the ‘white’ man burden" … and tend to produce self-serving philosophies to justify their actions at times dressing them in pseudo-, junk science such as "Craniology" and gross misinterpretations of scientific facts such as deducing a basis for genocidal racism and the breeding of a "superior race" from Darwinian biological theories about evolution, as well as oppressive, discriminatory "laws" and "regulations", which, as is the case of the U.S. government nowadays, may be covered by layers of secrecy, classification and redacting obfuscation. The Catholic Church considered that natives in the New Continent didn’t have a legal right to the lands they inhabited because "they didn’t have the proper legal papers";[*][*]; during the dictatorship Brazil endured for two decades, times from which CIA "operative manuals" are still being found[*], torturers openly boasted about "torturing all Brazilians to find out who were the true patriots"; CIA/"School of the America’s" trained Guatemalan Ríos Mont[*][*] considering indigenous groups to be "’potential’ left-wing sympathizers" targeted them as a group for their enslavement and genocide; the Israeli government has basically declared Palestinian territories their "Lebensraum" and Palestinian people their subjects based on "religious interpretations" and with the political backing and financial support of the U.S. government using tax payers monies.[*]


Uses and Abuses of Technology

Various forms of engineering and societal technologies have served as media and instruments of societal cohesion and development throughout history, from the invention of writing to the initial adoption of the social institution of the census primarily for taxing purposes, to then repurposing its utility for control and repression by the Romans. Initially business and politicians wondered what telephones would be good for[*] to becoming an indispensable medium for communications today. Technological changes tend to not only establish complex dynamic interrelationships among themselves (the telephone phased out the telegraph, the Internet redefined what phones are useful for), but also tend to stagnate and become impedance and obstructing devices to their very own initial utility, “rason de etre”. Medieval Italian merchants wedge themselves as a social class within the status quo of the clergy and the royalty by advertising their goodwill through openness and honesty. They would share their double entry books with other merchants they would never meet from remote places [*] (compare that with business practices nowadays!) and even a culture sporting most refined rationality such as Mathematics would only relinquish institutinal control for a new, eminently useful technology to a devastating fire that destroyed their tally system based on sticks along with the building where they were house[*]. Technologies also have repercussions since they become part and media of social, cultural and individual consciousness.

The social repercussion of the Roman census has been documented in the Bible[*], 11th-century Chinese alchemists invented it but it was Westerners the ones to whom gunpowder‘s most common use occurred and when Kant wrote his memorable critique of armamentism and wars, it was in times in which wars were local, more simmetrical and immediately very costly endevoirs, not in times in which “soldiers” could “patriotically” kill hundreds of unsuspecting people from an air-conditioned room in the other side of the world as if they are playing computer games; yet, the ethical aspects of his critique is as valid as ever.

The Catholic Church had no FISA courts, nor did they have such things as “secret interpretations of laws”. During their abusive reing for over ten centuries, they have been open and explicit (even carnavalesque) about their ways of social control and repression. They instituted and made mandatory
the Sacrament of Penance since they didn’t have
IT companies doing their dirty surveillance work for them (twitter and the archive.org have been the only U.S. based companies who have opposed willingly colaborating illegal activities of USG) and had the spine and mind power to heed their Index Librorum Prohibitorum to the chapter and paragraph agaisnt which authors had the opportunity to defend their writings, while many U.S. high ranking politicians publicly admitted that they didn’t even know what "N-S-A" stood for.

The ubiquitous adoption of current communicating technologies has made possible the ongoing interception, recording, correlation and storing of vast amounts of diverse personal data and metadata in searchable, queryable and contextually Zeitgeistable repositories: from all telephone calls you have ever made[*], to the centimetric record of your whereabouts and people you have crossed your way with even if you don’t and will never know them[*], the people you associate with off- and online[*], books you have read and music you have listened to[*][*], your shopping and eating habits[*], your financial standing and all your financial transactions[*], all your medical records (including detail records of visits to medical doctor and therapists/psychologists)[*][*], your DNA[*], your facial expressions[*], your heartbeat[*] … whatever physically tangible form of expression![*] Initially business started collecting and sharing all that information about "their users" for commercial purposes. It was later, after that "proof of concept", that the NSA was possessed by their "sniff it all, collect it all, know it all, process it all, exploit it all, …" incantation.[*]

George Orwell in his 1949 dystopian novel "1984" describes "telescreens" as devices invasively placed by governments in people’s own private living spaces to individually monitor their lives, describing the self-censoring, chilling effect of such devices:

"There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to. You have to live — did live, from habit that became instinct — in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized". [*]

The 4th Amendment of the U.S. constitution (introduced in the U.S. in Congress in 1789), from a civic point of view, basic social contract precepts, postulates that:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects,[*] against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."[*]

What neither "The Founding Fathers", nor George Orwell could possibly foresee was a future in which technology would render totally meaningless the very notion of privacy when it comes to "people’s ‘houses’, ‘papers’ and ‘effects’". Policing government agencies have been corrupting and repurposing commercial technologies[*][*] and using military-grade devices to easily see through walls without any awareness of the people inside[*], monitor people’s movements and beam electromagnetic lobes on specific part of their bodies while inside their own homes even while in pitch dark rooms[*], so-called "no-touch" torture[*]. Handwritten and printed paper ceased to be the primary medium from which information is read more than a generation ago . People are willing to pay more than 10 times as much money for an easily traceable, hackable electronic version of their books. Nor could they envision that people would all be happily and willingly paying for their own two-way "telescreens" through which they would be tacitly relinquishing all illusions about their own privacy, nor that people would abysmally, whole heartedly embrace the so-called Internet of Things[*] and that electromagnetic storage space would become so cheap that it doesn’t make sense to delete any kind of data about all citizens of a nation anymore[*]. Those kinds of technologies are so cheap that they are being payed for and sold like any other commercial gadgets[*].

Galvani’s discovery of the electrical reactivity of the legs of deafferented frogs and CIA José Delgado’s bull experiments[*] culminating with his very misleading and offensively dehumanizing titled book[*] have been interpreted by our highly suggestive minds as implying that our minds can be remotely steered. Some apparently well-informed and technically savvy individuals such as author Dr. Robet Duncan suggest that to be possible[*][*][*]. Policing agencies seem to exploit and spread such bleliefs[*][*], some people’s erroneously have about them being able to "read, write/transfer into thoughts and feelings, monitor their minds", which is factually impossible due the fact that the close-range, very low powered reactions in the synaptic clefts of our nervous system are eletro-chemical in nature, not encoded in any way.[*][*][*] Nonetheless, as part of their abusive mind control games, after depriving their victims of all forms of privacy, perpetrators are able to psychologically warp individuals to an extent that at times some of them have whole heartedly believed that their minds have been hijacked. Some of those individuals in desperation after years of relentless abuse have committed suicide[*] and/or gone into homicidal rampages.[*][*]


Panopticism

Argus Panoptes (Panoptes: "the all-seeing") is a many-eyed giant serving as "big brother" sort of watchman in Greek mythology by whom we are always "watched", "followed", "trailed" in a relentlessly scrutinizing way to an invasive, distressing degree. Similar allusions to all-seeing, omnipresent social control devices can be found in moralizing, religious texts[*][*] serving the controlling purpose of the power that be in other cultures even in architectural allegories; as people have also wondered themselves about "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?"(who watches the watchers). [*]

As a way to economize on “watchers” in prisons/society at large and make inmates/people ultimately watch and control themselves, Jeremy Bentham conceptualized the architectural design of a type of prison exploiting perspective in such ways that all inmates could be seen at all times from a few points, the Panopticon. Yet, in the global police state in which we live nowadays it is not just about architectural visions and technology. The morally detrimental effect of such "Über-surveillance" by the 5 eyes, other European acolytes and Israel, as well as each nation’s policing agencies, causes not only distrust and fear among individuals towards their government, but also lack of trust all the way to the very presiding individuals among supposedly allied governments, putting themselves and each other not only in uncomfortable political positions[*][*][*], but have affected the credibility of governments themselves. Dianne Feinstein, the very Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee admitted to not having a clue about technical matters, let alone NSA’s capabilities[*] and New Zealand’s Prime Minister, ~*~, manifestly showing the spineless stooges politicians are, retracted his vow to resign “if mass surveillance proved to be true”[*]. State dignitaries who had done nothing whatsoever to protect their own jurisdictional constituencies from foreign invasions to their privacy, had then, hypocritically indeed, gone berserk when they learned that their own communications were being monitored, as well. Hillary Clinton ridiculed herself undermining her political efforts, when, after realizing that she couldn’t even trust her own so-called "intelligence" agencies and media, used a private email servers which was apparently hacked and then she made groundless accusation against "Russian hackers", "Vladimir Putin". President Trump’s accusations about surveillance excesses of President’s Obama’s administration turned out to be true[*]. German chancellor Angela Merkel called the USG "the stasi of the world"[*] and impeached Brazilian president, Dilma Rousseff, resolutely denounced "the stasi of the world" on a UN speech[*] when she learned they had been monitoring Petrobras, a company from which she was treasurer.[Rousseff was impeached from office by government officials who came to their masters for direct instructions][who have since been involved themselves in larger scandals relating to fraud, excessive and abuses of power]

Nowadays, altering the architecture and lay out of cities is not necessary since people carry their own "smart" phones and cheap and sophisticated street cameras enabling the identification of passers by on every corner of public and private spaces covering whole cities have been all linked and are being monitored from fusion centers. However, the actual effectiveness and net gain of such "Über-surveillance" as a seemingly an almost costless, technically kosher way to control society at large has been questioned by security experts, social justice activists and consciousness studies scholars[*][*][*].
outside and inside view of a model of the Panopticon built in the Isle of Pines (Cuba) in the 1920's which housed German and Japanese prisoners of war during WWII
Jeremy Bentham’s Panopticon was actually implemented to its very specifications in the late 1920s, "El Presidio Modelo" (The Model Prison), in The Isles of Pines in Cuba, a U.S. neighboring country always considered part of their "immediate spheres of influence" as part of the Monroe doctrine. However, after unsuccessfully trying to fight corruption, political violence and U.S. tacit occupation from a legal point of view, after Cubans had fought off Spanish rule and the on the radio suicide of his political idol (even though a revolutionary writer chronicling his 105-day experience[*]
didn’t find absolutely anything worth “modelling” in such a prison[*]), notorious inmate Fidel Castro, who was included in the Guinness Book of Records as the person holding the longest UN speech (surely not saying anything nice about USG), who saw a total of 11 U.S. presidents come and go during his dictatorial rule and who survived 634 assassination attempts mainly masterminded by the CIA [*]; actually considered it "la prisión fecunda" ("the fruitful prison") where he had his two-year sabbatical to ponder about his revolutionary strategies to then; initially, with widespread popular support, topple U.S. trained and backed bloody dictator Fulgencio Batista. Ethnologs studying the consciousness of ravens have been frustrated by the fact that ravens were able to figure out the experiments, not playing "their roles" prior to the "logical conclusions" they wanted to arrive at, which put into question who was experimenting with whom[*]. Nonetheless policing agencies use targeted individuals (“TI” for short) as part of their controlling persecution and social experimentation in their attempt to ultimately achieve total control of society at large.


MKUltra++ and COINTELPRO++

Despite the findings and rulings of the Church Committee social control programs such as MKUltra and COINTELPRO were never defunded or institutionally phased out. They just morphed into our current ubiquitous and pervasive technological dependence, enabling todays Über-surveillance
[*][*], which make dystopia and movies from a earlier eras such as “1984” and The Front, feel silly, nostalgic, even idyllic. In addition to us having way more sophisticated “telescreens” in our living spaces, gone are the days people had to be interned, institutionalized in places such as the notorious Allan Memorial Institute in order to conduct and monitor non-consensual experiments with them and to torture them in sort of a Pavlovian conditioning way. The stasi complained that with their kinds of technology they could only monitor 14 telephones at any given time, while currently the world at large is being monitored[*].

Constant all encompassing surveillance is not “just ‘surveillance'” the mere act of surveilling whole societies is wrong on many counts “regardless of how they use that information”. It unavoidably is the most importat step for any form of government to develop into a police state. As a matter of course, governments get “smart” about all that data. During their persecution by Nazis, Jewish people had a harsher time the more detailed were the records that have been kept about them. After Nazis invaded Hungary (just a few SS troops) a massive campaign of exappropriations of businesses, stealing and persecution started against them. It was actually Hungarian citizens they ones who had kept the thorough records that made possible and encourage such planned actions. Sarah Bland, a citizen of ~Maryland~ where that is not a traffic infraction, was stopped and detained for doing something she may have done unconsciously. She ended up “suicieding” herself in a police custody for a traffic violation which shouldn’t have ever ended as a detention in a police station.

As part of the ongoing Church Committee investigations in 1977 in relation to Project MKUltra a misplaced stash of documents was found that survived the 1973 internal destruction orders from which more was learned than from the Inspector General’s 1963 report. On the Senate floor in 1977, Senator Ted Kennedy said:

The Deputy Director of the CIA revealed that over thirty universities and institutions were involved in an “extensive testing and experimentation” program which included covert drug tests on unwitting citizens “at all social levels, high and low, native Americans and foreign.” Several of these tests involved the administration of LSD to “unwitting subjects in social situations.”

Yes, those “aware” hippie characters in the U.S. of the 1960s and 1970s were hoodwinked into LSD addiction by the government and not a single one of those universities and research centers, among them “prestigious” McGill University, has come clear about it as a symbolic statement to morality.

Psychologists and psychiatrists who found the raise of Nazism as their God’s gift, were so out of hand, that their Führer himself signed a decree outlawing non consensual, not-informed experimentations with human beings[*]. They never stopped. The German government has formally declared human non-consensual experimentation illegal under all circumstances[*]. However those laws and regulations are not enforced in Germany, nor does the powerful German government care to defend its own citizens against such abuses[*].

Following the recommendations of the Church Committee, President Gerald Ford in 1976 issued the first executive order that explicitly prohibited the “experimentation with drugs on human subjects, except with the informed consent, in writing and witnessed by a disinterested party, of each such human subject” and in accordance with the guidelines issued by the National Commission[*]. Subsequent orders by Presidents Carter and Reagan expanded the directive to apply to any human experimentation. The political development to outlaw and close loopholes relating to such crass abuses to human integrity was reverted by Executive Order 13139, aka: “the Clinton Memo”.

Even though the all encompassing surveillance has been global for a long time already and policing agencies have been learning from each other and basically use and abuse the same kinds of time-tested techniques such as intimidation, gaslighting, framing people to put them in prison, using perps as fronts, as well as character and biological assassination and making people’s life miserable to the point that they commit suicide, people that have had a taste of the hospitality of various such agencies report at times contradictory findings.
Shin Bet motto is “We are defenders who shall not be seen” (Hebrew: מגן ולא יראה‎‎), however, they posed and bragged their heads off on a documentary in which they even strongly critize their own government[*]. German Citizens, during their supposedly monolithic Nazi times, organized and carried ~*~ assassination attempts against their Führer, even most German Max Planck lost a son to such endevoirs.[*][*] The East German stasi liked its presence to be manifestly felt, but hid their operatives and operations; and, ruthless as they were, they relinquished their power in a moment of doubt in a peaceful way and have integreated mainstream society in seamless ways. The Cuban “seguridad del estado”, both, underpinning an all encompassing overt (yet not bloody) dictatorship and stalwarting constant direct ingerencias and indirect scheming by the neighboring “world’s only superpower” for over 12 U.S. presidents doesn’t care at all about hiding their tracks and publicly advertise their preposterous penal code and internal regulations. They even summone their targets to discuss with them face-to-face, “make more participatory” their repression plans. However they are trained not to abuse people physically and do incarcerate even regular prisons police who don’t follow regulations.[*] The Chinese abduct book shop owners as dissidents.[*] MI5 ~killed~ a reporter who had brought the news about the ~*~ scandal, after the whole world knew about it.[*] The Brazilian court doesn’t seem to care about “jogo bello”, yet their police don’t seem to care about either about “jogo bello” or the “Brazilian court”.[*][*].
Not only does “‘the’ land of ‘the’ ‘free’ …” hold the record for the largest incarceration rate in the world, but local police (NYPD who call themselves “‘the’ finest”) start a target practice with an individual acting erratically, who they knew was on drugs, shooting to his groing ~*~ times until they killed him in most populous times square and as if it were not enough the local media supported that unnecessarily brutal excess of force with sadistic reports.[*][*]
The KGB doesn’t seem to be fun of local reporters[*] so they choose to have the world at large report about it. ~*~.
During “School of the Americas” trained Anastasio Somoza’s dictatorship in Nicaragua, their ruthless paramilitary police killed
ABC News darling journalist Bill Stewart point blanck and (unsuspectingly to them) on camera, as well as his Nicaraguan interpreter because as their CIA manuals trained the National Guard to think and say and even their own local newspapers were reinforcing a day before “foreign journalists are part of the vast network of communist propaganda”[*]. However, when those tapes reached mainstream media and millions of viewers in the United States and worldwide had a visual taste of what “their dogs”[*] had been doing and their politicians had been supporting all along, they reacted with shock and outrage and President Jimmy Carter issued a statement describing the murder as “an act of barbarism that all civilized people condemn.”[*]


Methods

  • gaslighting: is a form of manipulation that seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or members of a group, hoping to make targets question their own memory, perception, and sanity
  • gang stalking: gang stalkers are groups of people who coordinate through "fusion centers" their stalking and harassment of TIs for which they get monetary remuneration and perks such as shopping cards. However, as part of some questionable reverse of logic let alone civic, moral stance, they must sign "confidentiality agreements" disassociating their actions from U.S. agencies and making themselves directly liable for "braking the law"[*]

USG is one of the largest employer of psychology graduates.[] APA after meetings in Canada[*], broke ranks with the CIA promising to revoke the professional license of psychology graduates aiding the government in the illegal and inhumane torture and harassment of other human beings, some of them even boasting about their actions[*]. Today not a single case is known of a single psychologist exposed and whose license has been revoked. Well researched and documented reports on human experimentation by the stasi show the long lasting irreversible somatic and mental imbalances and diseases they cause to their victims.

As in the case of the Rosenhan experiments in which inmates were able to easily tell apart the fake impostors posing as mentally ill people (yet, institutionalized psychologists, who were repeatedly dupped, couldn’t!)[]; truly professional psychologists are able to tell apart mentally disturbed individuals expressing "persecutory delusions" from otherwise regular individuals reporting being stalked, followed, harassed and hearing voices.[*][*][*]


The Ws of individual targeting

  • Who becomes a target?: There is no single, sure-shot discerning rule as to whom will perpetrators likely choose as target. As Ted Kennedy pointed out: their “extensive testing and experimentation programs” “include covert drug tests on unwitting citizens [of all kinds and social strata]”; probably, for “scientific reasons” they may say:
    • some TIs believe they are being used for medical experimentation due to their blood type or for some other medical condition
    • some TIs are morally motivated towards their activism for socially progressive causes, while some other may be seen as reactionary and morally backward as they could possibly be and some other couldn’t care less about politics one way or the other
    • as the MK-Ultra hearings showed they do tend to target more women and girls for experimentation and as victims for their training, aspies tend to be overrepresented as well
    • they apparently target representative quotas of their demographics
    • they tend to target individuals whom they can easily isolate, attempt to “own”, engage interpersonally
    • most TIs who have no clue as to why they are being followed and harassed, who have confronted such individuals relate that perps react confused as if they were the ones actually being unjustly harassed, because: “they are not doing anything wrong or illegal to you”. Some of the perps being used and remunerated for their actions might even believe to be doing the “patriotic duty” of being part of the “total awareness” program against “terrorists”, that you should have your “‘patriotic duty’ also to play your role in it”. They apparently see themselves as minor, innocuous perps who are “just checking on you”. They would get upset if you take a picture of them, apparently without being able to understand that they, as willing participants of a larger snitching network, had received a picture of yours on their cell phone. In the documentary, “The Gatekeepers“, with the heads of Shin Bet, they related how at times they detained people who have no idea whatsoever as to why they are being tortured, because, unbeknown to them, after hunting them down as if they were animals, Shin Bet chose them to work them as potential snitches to target certain other people. Some of the individuals targeted have died in custody in their torture dungeons without a clue as to why they were detained to begin with.
  • How do I get out of such lists?: You can’t. Those are one-way lists. Even after you die they keep you in those lists as a correlating entry to possibly target other people relating to you. If, say, you hire a lawyer, all they do is case those developments. Lawyers, doctors and even politicians, who do know about such things try hard to stay away from TI-related issues.
  • What does actually happen to you?: It depends on what perpetrators (among them psychology graduates[]) consider to be your “psychological profile” and how they customize their harassment towards you. You will definitely notice peculiar things happening to you which do interfere with the course of your personal life. TI social justice activist Bruno Marchesani, who “had a stroke” at 53, related to us the story of a TI that was totally blind and decided to study psychology in order to help other TIs. Perpetrators zapped her fingers so she couldn’t read after which she related in meetings with her TI support group that she did feel suicidal. The perpetrators never stopped harassing her. She did commit suicide[*][*].
  • Why would anyone do such things to other people?: Socially speaking, peoples have the self-righteous tendency to see themselves collectively as well-minded individuals “obviously guided by ‘God'” to do good, while they see other “different” people as obviously wrong, not just in their own ways. Personally, as widely repeated and cased social experiments and all kinds of pranks clearly show, most people (approximately (2/3) of the general population), even those you would consider to be harmless and most of those that consider themselves to be morally grounded individuals, would do anything to another person on command by some barely seemingly “authorative figure”[*][*][*][*]. Those conscioussness studies show no correlation whatsoever with class, political persuation, intellectual prowes, financial standing, race, genetics or gender. It seems to be something you individually have going inside of you or not. The relationship between perpetrator and victim in those experiments was merely situational. Those experiments haven’t studied, in addition to presenting an “authorative figure” giving “the orders to be followed”, the effect that suggesting the victims as being Arabic or Spanish speakers, illegal immigrants and/or remunerating perpetrators. Just by noticing the kinds of games that children and adults get addictive to such as ~*~ and Pokemon-Go you could understand how easily people would find stalking and harassing other people as something “fun”. After participants are explained that they were the actual subjects of experimentation and asked why they would do such a thing to another individual and told about the golden rule, most of them tend they tend to easily downplay and/or rationalize their actions.[] Most people who either have been victims of and/or know first hand about such abuses cannot rationalize any of it and do oppose harassing other people.
  • Why don’t more people know about this?: There is concerted interest by the status quo to play down such matters, which is evidenced by the amount of effort they put into denying it and protraying TIs as crazies[]. Also, people generally have and guard their moral blind spots. Even if one makes the effort to explain such matters and they could find out by themselves if they are true or not, people who are not being targeted themselves would not accept such ideas, because “they would rock their consciouss boat”. Governmental and religious institutions and the media of European countries pretended they didn’t know about it and disbelieved, made even fun of Jewish people when they were trying to alert the general public about extermination camps in Nazi Germany.
  • When/Where does it happen?: It depends on how do you conduct your life and the harassing techniques perpetrators are training on you. If they are torturing you aurally, via V2K, it would happen when and where they could aim such devices at you. If they are sleep depriving you, it will then happen when you go to bed. If, say, your are an activist trying to visit a place, you may find virtually impossible to book a flight or while you are in the middle of an important, time-sensitive meeting for which you prepared a powerpoint presentation, devices repeatedly missfunction in awkward ways or crash without apparent rhyme or reason, so, your supervisors start wondering “what is wrong with you” …
  • How does it happen?: You will invariably notice that there must be some well-coordinated agencies behind those “happenings” because of their recurrence and their articulation: “why is it that I constantly find that person staring at me when I am arriving at work?, unknown people following me around, all too visibly acting as if they were updating my location on their cell phones?”, “lights in my apartment on, again? I positively switched them off as I left!”, “… and now I find my apartment door unlocked, too?”, “why are things again misplaced in my apartment?”, “why are all those baseless rumors being aired about me at work?” … If those incidents were random, they would be affecting most people in a very disfunctional society in which business could not possibly prosper. System theoretic studies have shown that just by messing with approximately 15% of a functioning entity you can severely mess with it,
    bring it to a halt, destroy it[*].

  • How do I defend myself against their harassment?: You should always try to minimize the effect of the techniques perpetrators use by:
    • acting in open ways in order to expose them. If they try to poke you personally in a private way, take that document and openly ask the question in public, widely accessible fora in a naive way specifying in detail the techniques they used and call back the companies they are pretending to belong to. This is also important, because, as it happened in the pre Church Committee COINTELPRO, perpetrators are “developing their own skills” and “taking their ‘careers’ ‘seriously'”, so at times they get “creative”, “imaginative” and do certain things they know to be illegal which their supervisors may not agree with.
    • never accepting any kind of interpersonal engagement with them either though words or innuendo, such as reacting to what they do (even if that V2K may say things you would very much like to respond to). They tend to engage people as if they were already having a conversation with you. You should totally ignore them or demand that they put whatever they are saying in writing, “so, that you can discuss this with your lawyer”. If they get too much on your face or in your way, you should publicly and loudly go “Excuse me! Who are you, [Sir|Ma’am]? Get out of my way!”.
      If you are stuck with them in a situation in which you can’t ignore tham, act stupid like you can’t understand them, like you don’t understand hierarchies, like you can’t keep secrets.

    • connecting with other TIs (yes, they have their snitches and disinformation brigades in support groups, too, but discerning the truths of matter, the fakes from the true isn’t that hard)
    • keeping detailed records, preferably of handwritten notes on paper (any kind of electronic data anyone can easily mess with), of what they do to you with the license plates of the cars, location where and time that the harassment happens including videos and pictures you can easily take with your cell phone (use apps to record the exact location, timestamp and direction of the camera); save and make your complaints cumulatively. A TI related a story in which after being stopped and harassed by the highway patrol for no reason whatsoever and keeping a long and extensive record of what was going on, once he simply called 911 and reported (as he recorded the call on his own phone): “certain individuals at the intersection so and so dressed as police, porting guns and driving what seems to be a police car (reading off the license plate over the phone), who have been harassing him for months for no apparent reason whatsoever”. Those police officers very upset asked him: “Why ‘he’ had done that?” He made sure to get and keep a transcript of the report. They stopped messing with him/his family. They never know where their faces and actions many resurface again. Dr. Katherine Horton related to us a story about a TI who was just an animal rights activist, who was framed using a “Romeo”, she seems to have fallen in love with and a baby was born, after which he just disappeared without rhyme or reason and without leaving a trace. After many years the single mother, still wondering what had happened, learned of google face recognition and used it to find him still working as a perp in Australia.[*]
    • when you write a complaint letter always include the enablers; say, if you live in the U.S. and are complaining to the Postal Service about the carriers leaving your mail (and only yours!) by the superintendent of your building whom you have told many times to stop collecting your mail (they are forced to serve as perpetrators by their managers and landlords “following orders from above”) cc the local police, fusion center and ACLU
    • connecting with and support in any way you can “(WE) custodiet ipsos custodes” types agencies such as ~*~ in NYC.
    • taking simple measures such as keeping your cell phone in a Faraday cage when you aren’t using it, not accepting drinks or food being handed to you in restaurants and bars, drinking always running water and walking on the side walk against car traffic will always help
    • learn basic computer skills, how to run utilities on the command prompt. Save your own data to external devices while disconnected to the Internet (physically unplug the cable). If you can, use an old computer to access the Internet and another one, which you never connect to the Internet for your own work. Linus Torvalds, well-known for his lack of political correctness, has told that he effing never connects his own work computer to the Internet.
    • not allowing for their harassment to totally frame, derail your life, make you do things you are not comfortable with (which could make some of the previous suggestions less valid)

    William Buckley, the American murdered in Beirut in 1985 after his kidnap and torture by Arab extremists, was identified in the U.S. media as a “political attache” or “journalist.” Basing his extraordinary investigative coup on interviews with scores of intelligence sources, including late CIA director William Casey, Thomas identifies Buckley as the CIA station chief in Beirut, an operative whose past operations included the surveillance of Egyptian president Anwar Sadat. The author ( Voyage of the Damned ; Pontiff ) pulls back the curtain over the CIA’s use of medical torture and other government operations around the world, from Angola to Israel. He describes how Buckley was injected with drugs, physically abused and mentally befuddled by mind-control expert Aziz al-Abub. This Arab doctor was but one of many disciples of Ewen Cameron, a respected Montreal psychiatrist at McGill University enlisted by CIA director Allen Dulles in the 1950s to devise techniques to scramble victims’ minds irreversibly. In a well-documented dossier that reads like a thriller, Thomas spills details of various operations, among them the CIA’s alleged bugging of the Vatican and the Pope.

  • Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life: A Former CIA Officer Reveals Safety and Survival Techniques to Keep You and Your Family Protected Paperback – September 20, 2016
    by Jason Hanson (Author)

    When Jason Hanson joined the CIA in 2003, he never imagined that the same tactics he used as a CIA officer for counter intelligence, surveillance, and protecting agency personnel would prove to be essential in every day civilian life.

    In addition to escaping handcuffs, picking locks, and spotting when someone is telling a lie, he can improvise a self-defense weapon, pack a perfect emergency kit, and disappear off the grid if necessary. He has also honed his “positive awareness”—a heightened sense of his surroundings that allows him to spot suspicious and potentially dangerous behavior—on the street, in a taxi, at the airport, when dining out, or in any other situation.

    In his engaging and empowering book Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life, Jason shares this know-how with readers, revealing how to:

    • prevent home invasions, carjackings, muggings, and other violent crimes
    • run counter-surveillance and avoid becoming a soft target
    • recognize common scams at home and abroad
    • become a human lie detector in any setting, including business negotiations
    • gain peace of mind by being prepared for anything instead of uninformed or afraid

    With the skill of a trained operative and the relatability of a suburban dad, Jason Hanson brings his top-level training to everyday Americans in this must-have guide to staying safe in an increasingly dangerous world.

  • Propaganda Paperback – September 1, 2004
    by Edward Bernays (Author), Mark Crispin Miller (Introduction)

    “Bernays’ honest and practical manual provides much insight into some of the most powerful and influential institutions of contemporary industrial state capitalist democracies.”—Noam Chomsky

    “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”—Edward Bernays, Propaganda

    A seminal and controversial figure in the history of political thought and public relations, Edward Bernays (1891–1995), pioneered the scientific technique of shaping and manipulating public opinion, which he famously dubbed “engineering of consent.” During World War I, he was an integral part of the U.S. Committee on Public Information (CPI), a powerful propaganda apparatus that was mobilized to package, advertise and sell the war to the American people as one that would “Make the World Safe for Democracy.” The CPI would become the blueprint in which marketing strategies for future wars would be based upon.

    Bernays applied the techniques he had learned in the CPI and, incorporating some of the ideas of Walter Lipmann, became an outspoken proponent of propaganda as a tool for democratic and corporate manipulation of the population. His 1928 bombshell Propaganda lays out his eerily prescient vision for using propaganda to regiment the collective mind in a variety of areas, including government, politics, art, science and education. To read this book today is to frightfully comprehend what our contemporary institutions of government and business have become in regards to organized manipulation of the masses.

    This is the first reprint of Propaganda in over 30 years and features an introduction by Mark Crispin Miller, author of The Bush Dyslexicon: Observations on a National Disorder.

  • The Rape of the Mind: The Psychology of Thought Control, Menticide, and Brainwashing Paperback – February 25, 2015
    by Joost A. M. Meerloo (Author)

    2015 Reprint of 1961 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition. Not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. In 1933 Meerloo began to study the methods by which systematic mental pressure brings people to abject submission, and by which totalitarians imprint their subjective “truth” on their victims’ minds. In “The Rape of the Mind” he goes far beyond the direct military implications of mental torture to describing how our own culture unobtrusively shows symptoms of pressurizing people’s minds. He presents a systematic analysis of the methods of brainwashing and mental torture and coercion, and shows how totalitarian strategy, with its use of mass psychology, leads to systematized “rape of the mind.” He describes the new age of cold war with its mental terror, verbocracy, and semantic fog, the use of fear as a tool of mass submission and the problem of treason and loyalty, so loaded with dangerous confusion. The “Rape of the Mind” is written for the interested layman, not only for experts and scientists. Contents: Part One: The Techniques of Individual Submission. 1. You Too Would Confess. 2. Pavlov’s Students as Circus Tamers. 3. Medication into Submission. 4. Why Do They Yield? The Psychodynamics of False Confession. Part Two: The Techniques of Mass Submission. 5. The Cold War against the Mind. 6. Totalitaria and its Dictatorship. 7. The Intrusion by Totalitarian Thinking. 8. Trial by Trial. 9. Fear as a Tool of Terror. Part Three: Unobtrusive Coercion. 10. The Child is Father to the Man. 11. Mental Contagion and Mass Delusion. 12. Technology Invades Our Minds. 13. Intrusion by the Administrative Mind. 14. The Turncoat in Each of Us. Part Four: In Search of Defenses. 15. Training Against Mental Torture. 16. Education for Discipline or Higher Morale. 17. From Old to New Courage. 18. Freedom — Our Mental Backbone

Well-known targeted Individuals

  • Marting Luther King Jr.‘s telephone was tapped by the FBI, under written directive from Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy. Even though no evidence of “communist infiltration” or any other wrong doing emerged, the FBI used the incidental details about his private life and associations over the next five years in attempts to force King out of his leadership position. King was eventually assassinated[].
  • Andrei Sakharov (Андре́й Са́харов) started receiving more attention from the


    KGB

    for openly protesting the nomination to the USSR Academy of Sciences of a Stalin supporter implicated in “the defamation, firing, arrest, even death, of many genuine scientists”. In 1967, when anti-ballistic missile defense became a key issue in US–Soviet relations, he wrote a detailed letter to the Soviet leadership advacing to them to “take the Americans at their word” and avoid an arms race. He also asked to let him innitiate a public discussion about the dangers of such developments. The government ignored him. Next year, after his essay: “Reflections on Progress, Peaceful Coexistence, and Intellectual Freedom”, circulated in the Soviet Union and internationally. He was banned from conducting any military-related research and was widely recognized as an open dissident, who stood vigil outside of closed courtrooms, wrote appeals on behalf of more than two hundred individual prisoners, and continued to write public essays about the need for democratization.

  • Bobby Fischer‘s single mother’s political activism, her fluenty speaking 8 languages, previous life in Moscow and communist sympathies caught the attention of the FBI. Out of her 750-page file they couldn’t get any hard evidence or (in those times) even determine who Bobby’s father was. Yet, J. Edgar Hoover suspected the teenage US champion’s mother was a Soviet agent and that the KGB was trying to recruit him. Hoover eventually admitted that he was wrong on both counts, but not before he made misserable his mother’s and the chess prodigy’s life to the point of turning Bobby into a world pariah after his self-imposed exile from the U.S.
    A “Committee to Free Bobby Fischer” was set up at Narita Airport. Previos opponent Boris Spassky wrote a letter to U.S. President George W. Bush, asking “For mercy, charity”, and, if that was not possible, “to put [him] in the same cell with Bobby Fischer” and “to give [them] a chess set”.

    Fischer and Miyoko Watai, then President of the Japanese Chess Association (with whom he had reportedly been living since 2000) wanted to become legally married, so he could stay in Japan. He also try to apply for German citizenship on the grounds that his father was German. Fischer publicly stated that he wanted to renounce his U.S. citizenship, and appealed to U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell to help him do so to no effect.
    Japan’s Justice Minister rejected Fischer’s request for asylum and ordered his deportation. Seeking ways to evade deportation to the U.S., Fischer wrote to the government of Iceland January 2005, who sympathetic to Fischer’s plight, but reluctant to grant him the full benefits of citizenship, granted him an alien’s passport. To his last days he was still pointing out missing combinations by his opponents, still haunded by the U.S. government. USG haunded him to the point, that at some point he even wrote introductory letters to Osama Bin Laden. He originally had a urinary tract blockage but refused surgery or medication and died in Iceland. Ironically, even if he bitterly opposed the way the Russians used chess as a means of propaganda, his 1972 widely followed contest with the Russian Boris Spassky was promoted by Western Media as “the clash between freedom and repression”.

  • Yoani Sánchez, listed by Time magazine as one of the world’s 100 most influential people in 2008 is a philology graduate from

    the Faculty of Arts and Letters of the University of Havana with a degree in Hispanic philology and a specialty in contemporary Latin American literature. Her thesis was titled Words Under Pressure. A Study of the Literature of Dictatorship in Latin America. Sanchez says that by the end of her university studies: “I understood two things: the first, that the world of intellectualism and high culture disgusted me and the saddest, that I no longer wanted to be a philologist.”[6]. Sánchez decided to emigrate to Switzerland, where she was eventually joined by her son and husband. Two years later she decided to return to Cuba “for a two-week family visit” on a round-trip ticket, and by destroying her passport, was able to avoid being forced on a plane back to Switzerland.[6]

    After finally resettling in Havana, she founded, together with a group of Cubans – all based on the island – a magazine, “Consenso”, and helped establish the web portal “Desde Cuba” (From Cuba) for reflections and debate. Sánchez abandoned anonymous blogging which provided her with both wide international support and the attention of the Cuban state police (“seguridad del estado”). She reports gang stalking, intimidation and smear campaigns against her and her family. Once, after a call from an agent who identified himself as a police and threatened him, he challenged him to meet him on the streets to discuss the matter and was harassed and attacked by the citizenry while plain clothed police seemed to protect him[]. Sánchez reported being abducted with other three Cuban dissident bloggers and being put in the back seat of a police car with Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo by state security agents one of whom she grabbed from his balls as she tried to fight him off[]

  • Laura Poitras, one of the initial three journalists to meet Edward Snowden
    in Hong Kong and with fellow journalist Glenn Greenwald
    received full copies of the leaked NSA documents[17][33], has been subjected to monitoring and harassment by the U.S. Government, which she relates, became obvious and more intense
    after
    a wire transfer she sent in 2006 to Riyadh al-Adhadh, the Iraqi medical doctor and Sunni political candidate who was the subject of her 2006 documentary My Country, My Country.[23] After completing My Country, My Country, Poitras claims, “I’ve been placed on the Department of Homeland Security’s watch list” and have been notified by airport security “that my ‘threat rating’ was the highest the Department of Homeland Security assigns”.[24] She says her work has been hampered by constant harassment by border agents during more than three dozen border crossings into and out of the United States. She has been detained for hours and interrogated and agents have seized her computer, cell phone and reporters notes and not returned them for weeks. Once she was threatened with being refused entry back into the United States.[25] In response to a Glenn Greenwald article about this, a group of film directors started a petition to protest the government’s actions against her.[26] In April 2012 Poitras was interviewed about surveillance on Democracy Now![] and called elected leaders’ behavior “shameful”.[27][28]. She authored the 2014 documentary
    Citizenfour
    and since 2008 she her filming works have received received numerous awards.

  • Ai Weiwei (艾未未)

    has been highly and openly critical of the Chinese Government’s corruption and cover-ups, in particular

    the Sichuan schools corruption scandal
    .

    In 2005, Ai was invited to start blogging by the biggest internet platform in China, which he did for four years, turning out a steady stream of scathing social commentary, criticism of government policy, thoughts on art and architecture, as well as autobiographical writings, until his account was shut down. He then turned to Twitter and Instagram, claiming at least eight hours online every day. He supported the Amnesty International petition for the Iranian filmmaker and musician brothers Hossein Rajabian and Mehdi Rajabian.

    In 2011, he was arrested at Beijing Capital International Airport and held for 81 days without any official charges which then became a detention on charges of “economic crime”: tax evasion and intentionally destroying accounting documents of a company he controlled.[74]. State media also reports that Ai was granted bail on account of Ai’s “good attitude in confessing his crimes”, willingness to pay back taxes, and his chronic illnesses.[75] According to the Chinese Foreign Ministry, he is prohibited from leaving Beijing without permission for one year.[76][77]
    Ai’s supporters widely viewed his detention as retaliation for his vocal criticism of the government. Professor Wang Yujin of China University of Political Science and Law stated that the release of Ai on bail shows that the Chinese government could not find any solid evidence of Ai’s alleged “economic crime”.[79] On 24 June 2011, Ai told a Radio Free Asia reporter that he was thankful for the support of the Hong Kong public, and praised Hong Kong’s conscious society. Ai also mentioned that his detention by the Chinese regime was hellish (Chinese: 九死一生), and stressed that he is forbidden to say too much to reporters.[80]. Much social justice and politically active art and movies have been made by and about him.[]

  • Charles Chaplin‘s long filming and artistic career generated worldwide adulation and controversy from the silent film era, to the “talkies” (media he initially resisted), to then Technicolor and widescreen. His deeply poetic, yet, hillarious and unambiguous messages (as kicking an immigration officer in the butt, which Hoover considerd “disrespectful”), rounded by his acting and artistic skills had no par. His depiction of humanity in frontal and subtle ways in an era of slapstick and mechanical story lines moved people to tears.

    One of his early screen persona, “the Tramp” became a worldwide icon still recognizable and exploted as a meme a century later.

    Chaplin, who considered himself a “peacemonger”, was accused of a being a Jew (he was Roma from his mother’s side, but he refused to clarified if he was Jewish or not) and of “communist sympathies” in times in which Hollywood was not known for being progressive. After arguments with FBI‘s director J. Edgar Hoover who had long been suspicious of his “political leanings”, every opportunity was used to generate negative publicity about him to damage Chaplin’s image and work through smear campaigns, from absurdly using an ancient statute such as the Mann Act, which prohibits the transportation of women across state boundaries for “sexual purposes”, to

    subpoena him to appear before the
    House of Un-American Activities Committee

    , to being accused of “moral turpitude” [239] declaring him the father of a child for whom he had to pay support until she turned 21, even though blood tests physically indicated otherwise (which his own lawyer refused to bring up!)

    and to hiring gangs of perpetrators to outrightly sabotage his movies.

    Representative John E. Rankin told Congress in June 1947: “[Chaplin’s] very life in Hollywood is detrimental to the “moral fabric of America”. [If he is deported] … his loathsome pictures can be kept from before the eyes of the American youth. He should be deported and gotten rid of at once.”

  • Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was involved in major action at the front in East Prussia during WWII as an artillery officer of the Red Army. He witnessed war crimes against local German civilians: Noncombatants and the elderly were robbed of their meager possessions and women and girls were gang-raped to death by the Soviet military; which he reflected a few years later, in the forced labor camp in his poem “Prussian Nights“. In February 1945, Solzhenitsyn was arrested and accused of anti-Soviet propaganda, for writing on a private letter to a friend derogatory comments about the conduct of the war by Joseph Stalin.

    In 1962, “One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich” was published in edited form in 1962, with the explicit approval of Nikita Khrushchev.
    After Krushchev’s removal in 1964, the cultural climate again became more repressive. In 1965, the KGB had seized some of his papers, including the manuscript of The First Circle.

    In August 1971 the KGB allegedly made an attempt to assassinate Solzhenitsyn using an unknown biological agent (most likely ricin) with an experimental gel-based delivery method. The attempt left him seriously ill but was unsuccessful.

    In The Gulag Archipelago, Solzhenitsyn wrote, “There is nothing that so assists the awakening of omniscience within us as insistent thoughts about one’s own transgressions, errors, mistakes. After the difficult cycles of such ponderings over many years, whenever I mentioned the heartlessness of our highest-ranking bureaucrats, the cruelty of our executioners, I remember myself in my Captain’s shoulder boards and the forward march of my battery through East Prussia, enshrouded in fire, and I say: ‘So were we any better?'”

  • Ernest Hemingway‘s economical and

    understated style
    had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his life of adventure and his public image influenced later generations. Many of his works are considered classics of English literature. He gladly accepted the 1954 Nobel Prize money, but modestly told the press other writers deserved it. Hemingway was a journalist before becoming a novelist working as a cub reporter after leaving high school. In 1918, Hemingway responded to a WWI Red Cross recruitment effort and on his first day in Milan/Italy, he was sent to the scene of a munitions factory explosion, where rescuers retrieved the shredded remains of female workers, which he described in his non-fiction book, Death in the Afternoon: “I remember that after we searched quite thoroughly for the complete dead we collected fragments”. He was only 18 whe he was seriously wounded by mortar fire. Despite his wounds, Hemingway was condecorated for assisting Italian soldiers to safety. He said of the incident: “When you go to war as a boy you have a great illusion of immortality. Other people get killed; not you … Then when you are badly wounded the first time you lose that illusion and you know it can happen to you.” During Spanish Civil War he was among the last journalists who witnessed the last Republican stand. In 1939, he crossed to Cuba in his boat where he with his lady friend bought the winter home “Finca Vigía”. He suspected the FBI had been actively monitoring his movements and indeed, they had opened a file on him during World War II, when he used the “Pilar” (a Spanish girl name) to fish in (to them “patrol”) the waters off Cuba. J. Edgar Hoover had an agent in Havana watch Hemingway during the 1950s.

    The FBI knew Hemingway had been admitted, registered under Saviers’ name at the Mayo Clinic where “an aura of secrecy surrounds his treatment”[]. He was treated with electroconvulsive therapy as many as 15 times in December 1960, and in January 1961 was “released in ruins”.[]
    In 1959, he bought a house in Ketchum, Idaho, where he killed himself in mid-1961.

  • John Perkins: after being monitored, tested and profiled before he graduated from Boston’s University Business School, the NSA recruits him for “his potential”, encouraging him to get involved in the peace core. While he was having a hard time finding information about countries he was interested in, “Claudine”, who knew all about him, showed at the Boston Public Library and gave him a book with her business card inside on the page containing the information he was looking for. Eventually he authors the partially biographical “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man” in which he describes and critizices his role in the colonization of Third World countries on behalf of United States government’s interests.
  • Muhammad Ali: publicly considered himself a conscientious objector, elaborating: “why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go ten thousand miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights?”. He was arrested and his boxing license suspended and stripped of his title. His communications were intercepted by the NSA. In 1971, his Fight of the Century provided cover for an activist group, the Citizens’ Commission to Investigate the FBI, to successfully pull off a burglary at an FBI office in, which exposed the COINTELPRO operations that included illegal spying on activists involved with the civil rights and anti-war movements. One of the COINTELPRO targets was Ali, which included the FBI gaining access to his records as far back as elementary school; one such record mentioned him loving art as a child.
  • The historical Jesus Christ questioned Jewish authorities on the subject of God, was a social activist and was crucified by Roman prefect Pontius Pilate after claiming that he was “witness to the truth”, to which Pilate’s reaction was: (John 18:38) Quid est veritas? (What is truth?)
  • Muhammad: was God’s Messenger (rasūl Allāh) sent to confirm the essential teachings of monotheism preached by Brahamanic religions against idol worship and the polytheism practiced by the local tribes and rulers of the city. Tradition records at great length the persecution and ill-treatment towards Muhammad and his followers (some of which were assassinated for not giving up their faith). The Message (1976 film) epic historical drama chronicling his life.
  • Lech_Wałęsa: Wałęsa and his family were under constant surveillance by the Polish secret police and he was arrested several times for participating in dissident activities. However, long held doubts about his relationship with the secret police have surfaced and been admitted by him.
