Incel Oriented Motivated Violence and Its Connection to Single Male Sexlessness

The term “incels” is a derivative of the two terms involuntary and celibate. Members of this group operate in online communities discussing difficulties in attaining sexual relationships. Statistical evidence has discovered the presence of misogynistic and favorable violence towards others, most notably women. As a result, several violent incidents have been correlated with these types of communities and, as such, resemble other ideologically motivated forms of extreme terrorist groups (O’Malley, Holt & Holt, 2020).

An exploration of the involuntary celibate (incel) subculture online has discovered and identified 5 incel interrelated normative orders; the sexual marketwomen as naturally evillegitimizing dominant masculinitymale oppression over women, and male patterned violence towards women.

Central to the building of their incel ideology is a master-narrative involving violent misogynistic beliefs and attitudes of entitlementbased on male gender and social positioning, with regard to obtaining desired and often illusory sexual experiences. While violence and hate speech within the incel community are both common, there exists a notable subset of incels who have been willing to act on their violent beliefs through the commission of multiple acts of murder. That is to say, successfully completed homicides. The findings suggest that although self-perceptions tend to reflect either grandiosity or self-deprecation, homicidal incels share similar demographic characteristics and dense common clusters of neutralization techniques, cognitive distortions, and criminal thinking errors.

Incel Ideology

At the top of the incel hierarchy are the most attractive men, “Chads.” Incels believe that roughly 20% of the population is made up of Chads but about 80% of women are only interested in men of this class. “Stacy,” the incel term for the most attractive women, will only consent to sex with Chad; “Tyrone” (the incel word for a black Chad), “Chang” (East Asian Chad), “Chadpreet” (South Asian Chad), or “Chaddam” (Arab Chad). Incels, in case you can’t tell, have serious racial hang-ups.

The awareness of this new type of criminals become of paramount importance when investigating cases of Group (Gang) Stalking incidents and its associated reports of electronic torture and psychotronic torture since the demographic of these incels include men with autism spectrum disorder. We will look at autism and the case of Alek Minassian a bit later. Important keywords stand out, as a woman who has been gang stalked suffering electronic torture and psychotronic torture. When reading over the abstracts of research data involving incel oriented motivated violence I find keywords like; violent misogynistic beliefs, attitudes of entitlement, hate speech, the sexual market, women as natural evil, legitimizing their masculinity, male oppression over women, favorable disposition towards violence against others, and a hierarchy of power placed on male social position. This last associated detail is also associated with jihadist extreme terrorism which has its roots in Islamic culture.

While it is important to understand and be aware of new criminal communities operating online and elsewhere, these characteristics fall into antisocial, violent and criminal patterns of behavior. What I find interesting is a common correlation with narcissistic personality disorder, the paranoid schizoid, and white male supremacy. Although I believe forms of male supremacy exist in all ethnic backgrounds, the demographic of incels seems to be mostly white males (55%) according to one researcher, with significant percentages of posters who self-identify as East AsianSouth Asianblack, and Latino. This makes up the demographic of incels.

Incels seem drawn to two online platforms; Braincels and incels.co. These incel ideologies are based on a sense that their looks or other personal traits — many users say they have autism — have ruined their romantic chances. They commonly share stories of personal trauma. One incel writes, “I was bullied heavily, which led me to develop severe anxiety and self-hatred. Because of my anxiety, I lack confidence, something women pick up on and [that] labels me a loser. Most of the incels I know are around 16 to 30 years old. They have either been bullied, have autism, or just conventionally unattractive faces.”

Yet incels are not merely an isolated subculture, disconnected from the outside world. They are a dark reflection of a set of social values sustained about women over the centuries that have been common, if not dominant, in broader Western society. The intersection between this age-old misogyny and new information technologies is reshaping our politics and culture in a way we may only dimly understand — and may not be prepared to confront.

The beginning of the incel movement began in the 1990s. Not surprisingly this is the time period when home computers became affordable and available to mostly anyone, but there are some reports of incels as early as the late 1980s who frequented online messaging boards. The irony of the founding of the incel community is that it was started by a homosexual woman. Unsure about her own sexuality and confused by dating rules, she started an online community called Alana’s Involuntary Celibacy Project. She eventually entered into a real relationship at age 24 with a woman and began to identify less and less with the community she created. As a result, she ceased involvement with the community around 2000. Since then, the involuntary celibate communities have morphed into an ideologically motivated subculture for violence against women. Where the early communities moderated against violence and hate speech, the new established forums encourage and even idolize actors who commit mass random acts of murder. In the beginning, it was neither exclusively male nor dedicated to a fatalistic anti-woman ideology.

One incel member writes,

“Our whole lives we’ve had to endure the pain of being so physically repulsive to females that they’d never even consider giving us a chance. We are actually so genetically inferior that they hate us. They need to suffer,” writes another incels.co poster. “Their hypocrisy is a crime [punishable by] torture for the rest of their slutty lives.”

Here is a blaring connection to electronic physical bodily attacks and psychotronic torture experienced by people who claim Group (Gang) Stalking. I have personally endured these attacks and, in my particular case, it is my mother and I who live together alone without a male representative. In my opinion, as woman, it is likely we are being abused by a misogynistic male attacker who seeks dominion over female flesh and one who a collegiate degree and is well informed regarding advanced technologies.

In one particular case, the very username “St. Marcc Lepine,” was mentioned by a member of an incel forum being noted as being “a risk.” This should have been a red flag because in 1989, the real-life Marc Lépine went into a classroom in Montreal’s École Polytechnique university and ordered the men to leave, then shot all nine women who remained. He continued his attack outside the classroom before shooting himself in the head. In a letter, he claimed the attack was “fighting feminism”he killed a total of 14 women during the assault, which remains the deadliest mass shooting in modern Canadian history.

What’s interesting is these incels don’t just attack women, but they attack other male competitors which was the case of Elliot Rogers who stabbed two of his male roommates and one visiting male friend before opening fire outside a sorority house. After killing these 3 men, he got into his car and drove to the Alpha Phi sorority at the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) campus, opening fire outside and in other nearby locations. He killed three more people — Katherine Cooper, Christopher Michaels-Martinez, and Veronika Weiss — and wounded 14 more before turning his gun on himself. All of the dead were UCSB students.

This movement has broader implications for other acts of random violence known as the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted bodily assaults and psychotronic torture, a crime I associate with Ransomware attacks as a technologically based form of crime known as cyber attacks. Although Ransomware attacks are considered white collar, Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical attacks and psychotronic torture is considered violent crime. Interestingly enough, one of the characteristics associated with male sexlessness is higher education. Individuals in graduate degree programs report having less sex than those without college degrees. The correlations with these forms of crime are; technologically based, a relative high level of intelligence, years spent in college training, and a lack of sexual fulfillment. All these aspects provide an interesting window of insight.

In the article “Male Sexlessness is Rising But Not for the Reasons Incels Claim” report people aged 22 to 35 have broadly similar amounts of sex; 60 to 100 encounters per year. Yet, incels claim the rising level of female promiscuity is at fault for their sexual disenfranchisement, going as far as to call Asian females “noodle whores.” A claim that just doesn’t make sense. The report also states that incels believe 20% of men (who make-up the most attractive and most desirable of all men) are having 80% of the sex, thus dominating and contributing to incels sexual disenfranchisement. Is this true? Researchers say no. For males to have that much sex, they conclude, a man would have to have sex twice a day every day! A statistic that just isn’t true. In fact, a small amount of the top 20% of men having the most sex, according to this article, admitted to having paid for sex or being paid for performing sex. Again, it would seem the incel ideology just doesn’t add up. There ideology seems to possess densely common cognitive distortions, and criminal thinking errorsI would suggest the same for perpetrators carrying out acts of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic bodily attacks and psychotronic torture.

Still, a common characteristic of bullies and those who favor violence is an aptitude to brag about their misdeeds.

Take Sheldon Bentley, a Canadian security guard in his late 30s. In 2016, Bentley found a homeless man named Donald Doucette in an alley in Edmonton and stomped him to death. In a pre-sentencing filing last summer, Bentley described himself as an “involuntary celibate”; both a forensic psychologist and Bentley’s probation officer testified during the trial that anger at this status led to his violent outburst. Bentley is one of the clearest examples of an incel taking out his rage on another individual. But if you listen to incels themselves, there are many more examples that happen with no documentation or criminal trial. Every now and again, forum users brag openly about how they hurt people — most frequently the women in their lives. I’ve seen posters boast about yelling at women, catfishing them, and even redirecting research funds away from work on cervical and ovarian cancer.

When forum users brag openly about how they hurt people, it is associated with self-vindication and asserting their masculine prowess, displaying a form of power and dominance which they feel they have been stripped of through female rejection. (See the following sources: Nancy Chodorow (2012) Individualizing Gender and Sexuality: Theory and Practice, Chapter 9, “Hate, Humiliation, and Masculinity”; Evan Stark (2007) Coercive Control, Chapter 8, “Technology of Coercive Control”; Weiland (1996) “Matricide and Destructiveness: Infantile Anxieties and Technological Culture”; Van Brunt, Murphy, Pescara-Kovach, Crance (2019) “Early Identification of Grooming and Targeting in Predatory Sexual Behavior on College Campuses,” and Amber Jacobs (2007) “On Matricide: Myth, Psychoanalysis, and the Law of the Mother” which provides an explanation of the personality position of the Paranoid Schizoid, AND Cohn (1987) Sex and Death in the Relational World of Defense Intellectuals which provide an interesting insight to deprecating female jargon.) Not surprising the most chilling incel stories are about outright sexual assault provided by incels. Rapists are at the core of psychoanalytic theory with regard to the Paranoid Schizoid personality position.

It has been known for many decades that it matters who you affiliate with, and those associations shape your behavior in all kinds of ways. There are multiple kinds of harms — and sometimes psychological aggression can have really severe, long-lasting impact on victims.

More Incel Ideology

Some incels encourage other incels to take “the rape pill” — defined as “the understanding that for civilization to survive, femoids (their word for female humans) need to be treated as subhuman objects whose purpose is to obey, and bear the children of, supreme gentlemen such as ourselves.” (The term “supreme gentleman” is one Elliot Rodger used to describe himself.) One incel site called Raping Girls Is Fun, currently had nearly 500 forum members in April 2019. One researcher’s report states, “I’ve seen its users swap stories about the women they say they’ve assaulted and tips on how to commit rape most effectively.”

One Braincels user writes. “I wish only for a painful death for as many of them as possible and I will go out of my way from now on to make women feel uncomfortable and make their lives harder in general.”

The Autism Connection

Alek Minassian, a Toronto man who was found guilty for 10 counts of first-degree murder, was a self-proclaimed incel. He rented a van the day of his attacks in April 2018. He jumped a curb and at a high rate of speed plowed into several pedestrians walking on the sidewalk sending bodies as high as 26 feet in the air. Eight of those 10 murdered victims were women. Minutes before the attack Minassian posted a tribute to Elliot Rogers who killed six people in May 2014. Minassian was said to had a form of autism spectrum disorder and it was argued that Alek was “not criminally responsible” as he suffered a lack of empathy for his victims. The judge rejected the it. One advocate for people with autism said people with autism don’t lack empathy, it’s just their method is different for expressing it and so, sometimes empathy gets expressed in different ways. Minassian was accomplished. A couple days before picking up the rental van to complete his grisly plan, he handed in the final assignment for his college degree in computer programming, and was set to start a software development job with a reputable company. It was the first time Canadian police recognized misogynistic crimes as terrorism.

Satan Is Happy With My Progress

In light of my recent blood test analysis, I’d say Satan is “over the moon” with my progress!

Initially, I blamed my brother-in-law for corrupting my son. He influenced him with his own ideology regarding “God” and that ideology was basically “only stupid people believe in God”. I was raised in the Catholic tradition and felt close to my faith. I had believed in the Superior Being of the Judeo-Christian religion and I wanted my son to know him too. I did this by placing him in Catholic educational school systems. Using game theory, there can be no arrived at, definitive conclusion to the question, “Does God exist?” The only arrived at conclusion could be is that it is impossible to actually “know God” because “God’s” status is one of “indeterminacy.” And borrowing from Blaise Pascal’s work, Pensées (1760), his arrived at position was not as to whether God exists or as to whether God doesn’t exist but whether or not it is reasonable and justifiable for a person to believe in the existence of a Superior Being with supernatural powers in an uncertain world. And, under those conditions, it is very justified for any prudent person, in an uncertain world, to believe in a Superior Being such as the God in the Judeo-Christian world. But Pascal also said, “One understands nothing of the works of God unless he starts from the principle that God willed to blind some and enlighten others.” My son’s uncle’s famous tout as well. A statement where he implies, he is not blind and has a better dominant strategy than just to be a “follower”. In game theory, it’s all about dominant strategy. What’s your best dominant strategy in the game?

Initially, I blamed my brother-in-law for his corrupting influence over my son. However, I failed to address the fact that my son, in light of his full intellectual faculties, is capable of arriving at his own conclusions. My son does not believe in any Superior Being with supernatural powers as written about in the Hebrew Bible and neither do I anymore. Of course, I believe in Superior Beings without supernatural powers; although a well-developed, well-polished, and near-perfect mathematical prowess comes pretty darn close to superhuman power in my opinion. It is, nonetheless, a mortal talent and skill revealing a person’s level of IQ. Since I placed him in an educational school system that fosters Christian faith, I assume he performed a formal search for the “Superior Being” known as “God” and, with the aid and guidance of my brother-in-law, arrived at a decision using the payoff matrix of Pascal’s wager; Person does not believe in God and finds that God does not exist where the payoff in the matrix is: “Nonbelief Justified with finite rewards.” This is the dominant strategy of many intelligent people in positions of at least some relatively dominance and power over themselves and others. Of course, this is not the dominant strategy for everyone. There are some individuals whose best dominant strategy is to believe in “God” and become one of his “followers” where the arrived at best possible payout would be to believe in “God” and believe “God” existence where, if using Pascal’s wager, the payoff matrix is: “Belief justified (for whatever reason or arrived at conclusion “God” made himself manifest in the individual’s life) with infinite rewards both on Earth and in Heaven.” Of course, this was the case for Eve when she resided in the Garden of Eden with Adam. Whereupon she chose to “eat the fruit”, as instructed by the Serpent, and to which she found herself expelled from “Paradise.”

My reason for wanting my son to come to know “God” was because I hoped it would foster character traits important for service and good leadership. I believe I achieved this in that my son, as he is sensitive and carrying, and capable of empathy. So, the fact that he does not believe in “God” is irrelevant now. I believe I did a fairly decent job at raising him. Although, this was a shared responsibility between myself and other family members. I cannot take sole responsibility for outcomes. There were many influencing individuals in his life.

Searching for “God” can make for a wonderful, sometimes delusional, and mind-altering experience. It is, however, the best mind-altering substance on the market as there are little to no side effects. At least, in my opinion.

Utilizing Philosophical Principles of Game Theory in Uncovering the “State of Nature” of the Phenomenon of Electronic Targeting as Rooted in the Psychology of The God Complex

IMAGE: Cartoon image of the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt.

In this writing, I try to utilize philosophical principles in game theory to analyze the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking, electronic stalking, electronic targeted physical assaults, and psychotronic torture. Specifically, with stalking cases that have gone on for years as in protracted conflict of war. I am hoping my writing makes some sense.

In game theory, one of the most famous rational arguments for believing in “God”, that is to say, the Superior Being (SB) from the Hebrew Bible, is that of Blaise Pascal whose approach was decision-theoretic. That is to say, Pascal’s approach did not assume we play games with “God”, in which “God” actively chooses strategies. Instead, he supposes that each person makes a calculation about whether or not believing in “God” in an uncertain world is justified. Pascal also believed that a prudent person, in his cosmic ignorance, should bet his life on believing God exists. In game theory, this would provide the “ignorant individual” with the best possible outcome (#4 in the game matrix payout) with “infinite rewards both in life and upon death.”

First, is it justifiable to believe that all individuals suffering electronic stalking and electronic torture at the hands of someone suffering a “God Complex” is rational, logical, and justifiable? The answer is, No. Simply because not all individuals suffering this experience may be “hallucinating” their experiences. Second, might one be inclined to believe the target suffering electronic torture may be perceived as “an ignorant individual” by someone suffering a God Complex? The answer to this is Yes. I’m confronted with the problematic of how to prove this “invisible entity” carrying out the electronic torture exists and is not a figment of the victim’s imagination. I find in a research study conducted by Sheridan, James & Roth in 2020.

To quote from Stephen Brams, Game Theory and the Humanities: Bridging Two Worlds,

“This kind of choice is a decision in a one-person game, or a game against nature, wherein “nature” is God or some other Superior Being (SB). Unlike a player in a two-person game, “God”, if He or She exists, is assumed to be neither benevolent nor malevolent, though I do suggest … the Search Decision becomes more like a game if God or SB can influence the choice of a state of nature.” (pg. 70)

That is to say if God or the Superior Being can influence the choice of a state of nature (God exists vs. God doesn’t exist). In the protracted conflict found in the Book of Exodus, the state of nature that proves God’s existence was the ten plagues he inflicted upon Egypt. However, according to Stephen Brams’ theological opinion which is suited for his analyzing whether God exists or not in game theory, “God” becomes a neutral or indifferent player in the game. Certainly, Brams could not arrive at a more politically correct decision than this!

It is here I would like to make a point to clearly elucidate our world has become far less uncertain and far more knowable, providing principles of certainty, thereby making “belief in an SB,” such as the “God” of the Judeo-Christian religion, less and less justifiable. In fact, the entire phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeting (Global Positioning Systems and other electronic weapons utilized for targeting in warfare), and electronic targeted physical assaults, and psychotronic torture, is to make “the game” less unpredictable and far more controllable for the dominant players in the game, and, even more, constraining for those players without superior knowledge and access to advancing technology or the means to somehow acquire and utilize such forms of technology for military defense. To illustrate further, consider Brams,

“I do not analyze the so-called proofs of God’s existence (or non-existence) … In an excellent synthesis of the literature, beginning with Descartes, on the existence of God, Hans Küng (1980) argues that all such proofs are flawed, and I share his view. In place of proof, Küng argues for a “rationally justified” faith, which of course does not have the force of a logical proof but, as the subtitle of his book suggests, is “an answer for today.” This answer according to Küng is rooted in developing a fundamental “trust in reality”; Pascal’s wager may be seen as a reason, perhaps cynical, to develop this trust.” (pg. 70)

It is here that I like to make yet another point in regard to Hans Küng’s principle of “trust in reality” (1980) and the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking, electronic stalking, electronic targeted physical assaults, and psychotronic torture in that it mimics an “act of God,” but is decidedly being carried out by mortal human being(s) posing as “a God; agent provocateur”as a primary conspirator, or co-conspirator in a protracted game of conflict. According to Küng, all proofs on “God’s” existence as an SB are flawed. In place of proof to the existence of “God,” Küng argues for “rationally justified” faith, however, this argument does not provide logical proof. The answer, according to Küng, is developing a fundamental “trust in reality,” and using Pascal’s wager to demonstrate how the development of this “trust” is arrived at and then using Bram’s reframing of it as a Search Decision we arrive at some philosophical understanding in game theory regarding the purpose of electronic torture in the phenomenon known as Group (Gang) Stalking. It is these three (3) elements taken together; “trust in reality”Pascal’s wagerand the Search Decision that when they all come together, we begin to understand its purpose. Its purpose is to unhinge and unravel P’s arrived at the decision that “the Superior Being in the Hebrew Bible [“God”] exists.” In the absence of torture, this is the arrived at a logical determination for many players without resources in “the game,” even those who have suffered natural losses as the consequence of everyday living. That is to say, players who, due to no fault of their own, remain disenfranchised. The right for one to believe in this “God” as part of the Judeo-Christian faith is protected by the 1st amendment, which violates all targeted individual’s 1st amendment rights as well as their 4th amendment rights.

Pascal’s Wager, Trust in Reality, and the Search Decision

Pascal’s Wager assumes a person is in a betting situation and must stake his destiny on some view of the world. In his or her search for proof in (1) believing “God” exists, or, (2) believing “God” does not exist. The agnostic assumption stated in №223 of Pascal’s Pensées states “if there is a God … we are incapable of knowing what He is, or whether He is,” and “reason can settle nothing here … a game[!] is on.” What is more, is the fact that the SB’s existence remains indeterminate because the information that would settle this question is unattainable. Brams more accurately perceives “God” not as an individual but as “a state of nature.” The problem with that assumption is that it is in contradiction with the games played in the Hebrew Bible. For example, The Temptation Game (Gen. 3:1–6), Abraham’s Sacrifice (Gen. 22:1–13), Ten Plagues of Pharoah (Exodus 7–12), and a whole host of other games every student of the Bible would be familiar with. As far as my personal experience, electronic stalking, with electronic physical assaults and psychotronic torture is similar in nature to the protracted conflict in Exodus between Pharoah and Moses and the Israelites. In this game’s payoff matrix, the best possible outcome for “God” and Moses was to continue the “plagues” thereby revealing “God’s” power (#4=the best possible outcome), allowing Moses and the Israelites the freedom “to leave the country,” thereby leaving Pharoah and the Egyptians impotent. What is even more interesting is that God’s “plagues” are listed as “part of the state of nature.” For me, the analysis that most accurately describes “God” is most certainly as “a player in the game,” and one who makes conscious decisions based on what the other players do. He also reveals himself as one who is suffering from narcissistic personality disorder. An Adolf Hitler, if you will (see Donald Capps, 2009).

“Trust in reality” is one of Hans Küng’s fundamental principles playing into game theory that states, “I say ‘Yes’ to the uncertain reality of my own existence and of the world,” and as such, I commit myself to reality, relying on reality, allowing it to gradually unfold its meaning to me.” This postulate is most certainly held by those in positions of powerlessness and where P’s cosmic ignorance, weakness, powerlessness would certainly foster belief in a “Superior Being’s” existence in their reality, as such the “God” from the Judeo-Christian faith.

When I use the following terms, “cosmic ignorance,” “weakness,” or “powerlessness” I mean P’s ignorance in such fields of study such as geology (the understanding of geological forces), meteorology (the understanding of weather events), medicine (how disease proliferates), agriculture (how pestilences are deterred), psychology (understanding your opponent’s mental states), physics (understanding the principles and laws that allow fundamental physics to operate in building bridges, tall buildings, and landscapes, etc.) and so on and so forth. Speaking of pestilences, no other bug infestation could be as great for a human being as the one in which a person’s life is being surveilled through various electronic means. But, nonetheless about that; by “weakness” and “powerlessness,” I mean people whose free-wills are capable of being molded in order to be “lead and subjugated by someone with the dominant power.” I also mean by these two terms, those without the power to convince and influence others with their version of “truth,” as Nietzsche suggests. Nietzsche’s early essay, “On Truth and Lies in a Nonmoral Sense,” argues that Nietzsche believes the very idea of “truth” to be a lie. Truth is not an elephant that we must look at from multiple perspectives under this view and that, but rather truth is simply the name given to the point of view of the people who have the power to enforce their point of view. The only reality is the will to power. The truth, like morality, is just another fig leaf placed on top of this reality.

In addition, by using the terms “weakness” and “powerlessness” I mean, disenfranchised people such as the ancient Israelites who were dominated by superior power (Pharoah) under oppressive conditions. This has formerly made-up mostly the lower and middle classes. Certainly, those with advanced intellects and IQs need no proof of his “non-existence.” Additionally, one might consider the influence of the Pope and other church authorities on the followers of the Catholic faith, and too, consider how the Roman Catholic faith was not above physical torture to exact their power over “Other” in influence people’s decision making with regards to which faith they applied their energy (Murphy, 2012).

In the Search Decisionif P does not have any other dominant strategy, his or her best decision is to believe in “God” and “play the game of religion.” And here we can use a very useful quote by Blaise Pascal (Pensées, 1760/1950);

“One understands nothing of the works of God unless he starts from the principle that God willed to blind some and enlighten others.”

It is the Search Decision that may be employed to facilitate the dominant player’s position in exacting their punishment against the targeted subjects through electronic torture. This is a noncooperative game, where information is incomplete, and to which, in the end, there could only be one winner and one loser. A zero-sum game as in the protracted conflict in Exodus.

For, if meaning is to be derived at from human physical torture, what does its meaning tell us? Of course, there are many things this meaning tells someone. Here is a list of some I have deduced:

(1) There are sadistic dominant players in the world who are not above torturing others for pleasure (Lyons & Jonason, 2015; Krick, Tresp, Vatter, Ludwig, Wihlenda & Rettenberger, 2016; Johnson, Plouffe & Saklofske, 2019).

(2) That no matter how “faithful” or “good” one might adhere to their religious faith, “bad things happen to good people.”

(3) That a tortured life may not be worth living, for any former quality of life that may have existed before the subject’s electronic targeting has been usurped by the abuser.

(4) If the tortured subject (game player) still has any ounce of faith left, it might provide him/her some relief from their pain. (Consider the Book of Job)

Again, the aspect of indeterminacy, not only as to the reason for electronic torture but in establishing the identity of the “God” reigning over countless people, torturing them, making their life miserable, makes it difficult to ascertain what he or she truly wants. Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture seems to be a game of incomplete information, but one that is clearly a noncooperative game as the players seem to be diametrically opposed to one another making it a zero-sum game with one winner and one loser. This begs the question, “Who is really winning? Who is losing? It would seem the electronically targeted individual is losing out.

Of course, Blaise Pascal’s agnostic assumption, though during his lifetime may have been more relevant, today is completely flawed in my opinion. In today’s 21st century world, we have advanced and fostered the branch of academic study known as Psychoanalysis. It is, therefore, possible to know who “God” is as the SB of the Hebrew-Christian Bible through forensic profiling (see Donald Capps, 2009). Thus, forensic psychoanalysis lends itself to our understanding of what “God’s” nature actually represents. That is to say, what he represents to P’s search for him in their reality, although may provide peace in keeping the faith. In today’s world, we have identifiable markers we’ll call attributes that provide us the ability to establish identity (Elmer, 2003; Humphreys, 2011; Wang & Tucker, 2017). These traditionally are the attributes; first name, last name, birth date, social security number, address, driver’s license number, car registration, religious affiliation, and political orientation. These attributes all come together so that every individual’s identity can be known in the world. Along with these attributes we have physical traits such as; hair color, eye color, gender, weight, height, tattoo markings, and birthmarks. These make up the physically identifiable traits that allow one to become recognizable in the world. “God’s” indeterminate status does not allow “P” to know what these attributes are because he has chosen to hide them from us. We can most certainly understand the perpetrators’ of electronic stalking, electronic physical assaults, and psychotronic torture purpose for hiding these very identifiable attributes. They choose not to reveal themselves explicitly, but implicitly through the arrival at scientific forensic analysis. Most specifically what they hide are their gender and name. Although any student of psychoanalysis studying gender theory can discover the masculine / feminine behavioral attributes associated with individual behaviors. The study of such concepts can allow one the ability in establishing a perpetrator’s gender orientation and identity. Or are we to assume anthropomorphism in all cases where identity is not known? Although “God” chooses to hide his identity from his subjects, he has left clues about his personality. Of course, I assume “God’s” gender, hair color, eye color, weight, height, religious affiliation, and political orientation change, as one would expect, when old rulers exist and new rulers take over.

Some Psychoanalytic Insights on the Psychology of Castration Fantasies and the Vanished Pregnant Body in Psychoanalytic Theory; Analyzing the Targeted Individual 

The Post-Female Pregnant Body and the healthy experience. Female psychoanalysts posit the importance of positive female body experiences especially when it comes to the female pregnant body and a little girl’s development of positive gender identity. The pregnant body with regard to symbolism and imagery has actually been omitted in theory building to date (2012). The absence of this icon of female body image development from cradle to grave suggests the gender politics of the 1970’s “who is wielding social power in the composition of theories in general (Balsam, 2012).” This theory would make absolute sense in curbing sadistic attacks toward female bodies (both from the masculine and feminine gender orientation).

Being a woman and a student of feminine psychoanalytic theory, I have come to believe that the person carrying out my electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture (assaults against the female body) possess an amalgamation of Freudian castration complex fears along with the sexual perverse fantasy of watching the female flesh expand thereby dehumanizing the target through rendering the target immobilized with diminished mobility and mental capacity. This is certainly what has happened to me when forced into sleep through electromagnetic stimulation/sedation thereby ushering in weight gain by blocking movement and exercise. This offers up a very interesting clue to the pernicious thoughts of the perpetrator. He/she very well may find pleasure in humiliating their targets. In addition, the perpetrator may find the thought of fat/inferiority/weakness/pregnancy extremely distasteful as it does not constitute a form of social capital in the ability that allows one to move freely within a woman’s environment. It has been said the most vulnerable position a woman can place herself in is in the state of pregnancy. Some people may associate “pregnancy” with “fat” and thereby inferior vulnerability. This is not surprising as the female expanding body, as in pregnancy and later, as women age are sometimes seen as the iconic “matriarch,” (the dead mother) can be viewed as just another humiliating aspect of patriarchy and Father Time’s denial of youthful beauty and playfulness. That is, as in sexual youthful playfulness (see the Paranoid Schizoid Position).

Many feminists have talked about this fear of the female body (fear of pregnancy and the fear of turning into one’s mother as women age; that iconic matriarch) lurking in the dark shadows of their own psyches and which promotes their hostility not only toward male dominance, but also hostility towards images of youthful beauty and anger at their own aging body. That is, their own aging body that represents the uncontrollable aspect of the pre-Oedipal terrain; ambivalence. This certainly plays into castration fantasies on multiple levels and not just towards the female self as seen in plastic surgery and invasive cosmetic treatments, but in the annihilation of Objects in one’s relational world (object relations theory) as observed in the paranoid-schizoid position and the repetitive assaults against female flesh in rape. The expanding aging body is just another aspect of this fear as the body loses elasticity with old age and is prone to weight gain and other bodily distortions that belong to aging. It’s not only women who possess these narcissistic fears (though they may be childish and infantile), but it is also men who possess these fears towards female flesh (the female pregnant body and the female aging body) as well as their own aging bodies. It is, for this reason, I contend that the Vanished Pregnant Body or Vanished Post-Delivery Body not only belongs to the psychology of women, but to men as well. If we consider the following written by Rosemary Balsam’s in “Women’s Bodies in Psychoanalysis” in Chapter 3, The Vanished Pregnant Body in psychoanalytic theory:

“A pregnancy [and therefore a pregnant body] might be viewed as female/inferior/irrational, being that most earthly of states, a symbol of woman as “body” to man’s “mind,” the fruit of guilt-laden sexual intercourse, the result of unseen meshing of ungovernable genetic codes. Even modern psychoanalytic clinical observations could be thus unwittingly affected so that pregnancy remains invisible in theory (or marginalized and bracketed in spite of the blatant presence and visual command of any pregnant woman who walks into a room of children and their richly evoked fantasies. …

The history of the medical vision of the female body suggests speculation on an abiding tendency in Western culture — in both men and women — the need to distort the female bodily configuration while making theories. My own speculations about how this may come about involve universal unconscious fears of pregnancy that are held by both men and women. This differs from the usual psychoanalytic view that the primary confusion about the anatomical distinctions between the sexes resides in concerns about phallic primacy (for both sexes — in their castration anxiety). We may not need to choose between the biological male or the biological female because major fears appear to involve both, rather than either/or.”

In this light of this information, we may also view the female pregnant body or large maternal body (post-delivery) with its enlarged breasts, buttocks, thighs, belly as that uncontrollable territory from infancy and childhood, and the division that separated us from her, that forever sought-after human flesh we find so maddening. It would be far too easy, and safe, to dismiss it as just another battle between the sexes. Safe, because this would help obscure and block any further required investigation into the subject matter and into what it really represents. Because that would expose its deviant perversion rooted in identity and problems with object relations. The creative perversion in transcending this fleshly boundary of maddening pre-Oedipal phase is found in the use of an electromagnetic tether and the use of the medical doctors that allow the perpetrator total control over his/her own fears surrounding that uncontrollable, ambivalent, maternal order. Perhaps, even as this creative perversion constitutes the balm for his/her own wounded narcissism that allows for the humiliation of the “Object Other” (see Jacobs, 2007, pp. 77–82). A humiliation that is rooted, not in empathy and compassion for, but in hatred and annihilation of an Object through paranoid fears.

And certainly, as a “fat body” and distorted female bodily configuration (body inflation fantasies and feeder fantasies) touch upon the inferior/irrational states of being and one that is of the most earthly of states (the human condition), guilt-laden uncontrollable indulgences at the pre-Oedipal breast, which ties into unconscious sexual fantasies in aspects of a forced nipple in the mouth as the canvas of that pre-Oedipal arrangement, and of the hedonistic sexual enjoyment that follows which are the roots of human intimacy and eventually sexual intercourse. The result of unseen meshing of the phallus with vaginal opening/mouth orifice. Nipple as phallus and life-giving nourishment and phallus as the nipple.

In the creation of a sexual perversion of the female body, that uncontrollable terrain becomes the controlled and governed Object that was once ungovernable and uncontrollable, perhaps even terribly unforgiving, to us. It is for this reason; the paranoid-schizoid position is part of both male and female abnormal development. The same paranoia that is rooted in the psychology of the male’s desire toward rape violence, is also rooted in the psychology of a female’s desire toward violence against the female flesh.

On Pierre Bourdieu’s Social Capital Theory

IMAGE: Surrealism artwork of a game of chess. In Game Theory, each move directs the game’s progress and repositions an alternate possible outcome of the game.

DEFINITION: The Perverse Structure as psychoanalytic disavowal. The pervert disavows castration; he/she perceives that the mother lacks the phallus, and at the same time refuses to accept the reality of this traumatic perception (Lacanian Theory). This psychoanalytic theory plays into homosexual compromise but it is also rooted in personality disorders such as the paranoid-schizoid.

I contend with adversarial arguments that insist the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture are delusions and hallucinations made manifest from the diseased mind. As a person who has suffered electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture as part of her stalking, I have had my ability to speak impaired through remote artificial electronic stimulus that induces sedative states. The American culture has been steeped in racial conflict simply because our founding forefathers wrote into its nation’s legal instrument a doctrine with deep caustic roots which is near to impossible to excise from the social order (see Butler, 2021). The historical-based dichotomy of “valuable groups” and “nonvaluable groups” dates back centuries to past various Inquisitions and Holocausts that tend to isolate certain groups from the main group. That is to say, isolation from the group that possesses the dominant power. In light of this information, we might consider the Department of Defense’s work with Google in uncovering “Deep Fakes.” Deep Fakes are video/photos and audio recordings of individuals speaking a specific dialogue but who, in fact, never spoke the words. These are the latest in the tools of counter-intelligence, espionage, and the spreading of lies. In fact, there is a new app in the Google Play Store called “Re-face.” I had a bit of fun with it and anyone can download it for a free trial period.

I contend with any adversarial argument that the technology of Deep Fakes is built into the technology of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture as tools of audio surveillance in recording possible time voice signatures and the creation of “data”. I say this because an aspect to this technology is “listening” (intelligence gathering). As such this data, just like a photo or video, can be subject to corruption.

This technology also usurps an individual’s identity from the targeted subject and reshapes it to the desire of the controller/operator/agent. Consider Bourdieu’s argument that language is primarily shaped by nation-state supporters whose desire is to influence an elite-based standard of linguistics. But this is not just limited to linguistics, it also ties into forming and shaping the conduct of the subject and can play into Lacanian perverse scenarios. (See Butler, 1997; and Friederich Nietzsche’s Genealogy of Morals; Georg Wilhelm Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit.) Combine this argument with the argument that analysis of symbolic power in relation to political institutions concerns itself with the separation between professional public figures and the general public and the purpose for this separation is to reduce the public to the status of “consumers.” (Bourdieu, 1991, p. 172) This aspect of control places the symbolic power in the hands of certain homogenous groups who desire may be to promote their own personal ideologies and political positions. “This separation, [Bourdieu] argues in “Political Representation,” is one that leaves professionals with the cultural capital to create political products, programs, and campaigns, but to do so within a limited set of options.” This makes sense when we consider the entire criminal purpose of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture exists as a mechanism for controlling certain targeted individuals. “The limited set of options” we might conclude, as in the case of the Colonial Pipeline hack, was the resulting prosecution by the Justice Department of the criminal group known as Darkside which provided a means to dike and recuperate damages resulting from these cyber-attacks. (Please see Justice News, Justice.gov, Monday, June 7, 2021.)

The symbolic expression of language can be used as a therapeutic mechanism as artists have used creative mediums to arrive at closure upon a subject matter. Painters, sculptors, engineers, writers all use their crafts as a means of expression. But symbolic expression can also become a creative perversion with detrimental outcomes for certain groups. If we read the silencing of various groups during the German Holocaust; Jews, Jehovah Witnesses, homosexuals, and the disabled as a cause to their “nonvaluable” status and the more modern event of ransomware attacks that target suspected wealthier middle- or upper-class individuals and organizations to pay money to entitled criminal groups. The perverse solution is perhaps closer to the truth than a sham if we know how to read its silencing and denial correctly, and as Janine-Chassegeut Smirgel tells us we are all open to the perverse solution because creative problem solving is rooted in the human psyche. As she tells us, “…all of us are open to the perverse solution which constitutes a balm for our wounded narcissism and a means of dissipating our feelings of smallness and inadequacy. This temptation can lead to our losing the love for truth and replacing it with a taste for sham (pg. 24).” The person carrying out my Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture represents as “a Lacanian pervert” for all intense purposes of this psychoanalytic investigation in that it represents “a disavowal of a denied phallus (e.g.; the little boy’s/girl’s ability to castrate).” The truth that is exposed is in how he/she gets around the inescapable nature of natural human destiny with his/her feelings of smallness and inadequacy. He/she cannot allow the natural course of events to transpire uninterrupted. He/she must re-divert destiny to an alternate world of his/her own creation. A creation where he/she will reign as the supreme creator God (through sadistic attacks) in an alternate reality. Hence, we arrive at an understanding and purpose for the world of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture. Except, torture is a felony! (Please refer to the character traits known as the Dark Triad and Dark Tetrad see Sources.)

Critical Race Theory and Missing White Women Syndrome

Image of Facebook’s newly designed branded logo.

In light of how some US citizens feel that Critical Race Theory should not be taught in our public schools and in light of the phenomenon of Missing White Women Syndrome and Facebook’s newly intended name change to Meta, I am wondering if these social issues will ever change to, in fact, worsen for us once we take into consideration Pierre Bourdieu’s social capital theory.

I happen to believe that major media and social media play into the phenomenon because of advertiser content. Photos of missing or dead beautiful middle-class white women are more likely to generate sales than photos of underprivileged poor black or native American women. In regard to beauty as social capital theory, which photo do you think would sell more copies of a news article? Gabby Petito or Rita Janelle Papakee?

People with no metadata will most likely be classified as “non-valuable” as far as metadata will be concerned leaving an even larger gap in the disparaging inequality of social difference already prevalent in America. In addition, the phenomenon of targeted electronic physical assaults and psychotronic torture leave individuals beleaguered and usurps social capital away from them prematurely by aging them quickly with persistent pain and suffering.

In Nietzschean View: Defining the conception of truth

The Doctrine To The Will To Power

Friedrich Nietzsche is critical of the very idea of objective truth. That we should think there is only one right way of considering a matter is only evidence that we have become inflexible in our thinking. Such intellectual inflexibility is a symptom of saying “no” to life, a condition that Nietzsche abhors. A healthy mind is flexible and recognizes that there are many different ways of considering a matter. There is no single truth but rather many.

At this point, interpreters of Nietzsche differ. Some argue that Nietzsche believes there is such a thing as truth but that there is no single correct perspective on it. Just as we cannot get the full picture of what an elephant is like simply by looking at its leg or looking at its tail or looking at its trunk, we cannot get a reasonable picture of any truth unless we look at it from multiple perspectives.

This is a critical point I have arrived at when analyzing the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking with Electronic Targeted Assaults and Psychotronic Torture. The main “go-to” assumption is that this phenomenon represents federal or state authority’s interference into the private lives of its citizens under the historical aegis of “Mind Control.” When in fact, what may be the problem is one of any number of, or multiple of things, such as domestic violence, intimate partner stalking, organized gang activity targeting the gang’s perceived enemies, a real estate scheme to move occupants and conquer territories, a conspiracy within a particular state government, a conflict between business partners, etc., and so forth. And I am not discounting the idea that it may be an invisible war being carried out in response to the torture of many Muslims owing to the “dirty tricks” instituted by former President George W. Bush’s War on Terror following 9/11 and the opening of Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba.

Just a recap and brief history, the Bush administration decided in February 2002 to abrogate the Geneva Conventions regarding detainees. Then it created a legal justification for torture by defining the term in such a way — it must produce pain “equivalent in intensity to the pain accompanying serious physical injury, such as organ failure, impairment of bodily function, or even death” — that most acts of torture fell outside it. This standard was embodied in the so-called torture memos drafted in 2002 by the Justice Department lawyers John Yoo and Jay Bybee; those documents did for the twenty-first century what the papal bull Ad extirpanda did for the thirteenth. With that threshold in place, the Bush administration drew up a list of techniques — including isolation, twenty-hour interrogations, nudity, hooding, standing for long periods of time, deprivation of light and sound, the use of dogs — and conveyed the list to interrogators on the scene. In fact, many medical doctors were present during the sessions of torture carried out at Guantanomo Bay.

It is no surprise that Guantanamo Bay Naval Base was chosen. It represented a legal black hole. It was not part of the constitutional homeland, the Bush administration argued, or subject to the same legal standards that might be obtained within that homeland. Detainees could therefore be subjected to any legal regime the authorities decided to implement.

Then, following the 2011 raid of Osama bin Laden’s compound, poll research discovered an increase in American’s who believed that “torture of our foreign enemies should be carried out and is deemed “appropriate.” The problem, who and how do you define a “foreign enemy?” When many people perceive blacks, women, homosexuals, immigrants, transgender, the mentally ill, and countless others as “the other,” the “enemy” may very well become any person who represents difference.

Still other interpretations of Nietzsche’s work, particularly those who value Nietzsche’s early essay “On Truth and Lies in a Nonmoral Sense,” argue that Nietzsche believes the very idea of “truth” to be a lie. Truth is not an elephant that we must look at from multiple perspectives under this view. Rather, truth is simply the name given to the point of view of the people who have the power to enforce their point of view. The only reality is the will to power, the truth, like morality, is just another fig leaf placed on top of this reality.

Herein lies the compound paradox: whose “truth” do you believe to be closer to the actual events that have transpired in history and whose are farther away from deception? That is to say, “Are the victims who claim to be electronically stalked with electronic and psychotronic torture in their environment really “mentally ill” or is this a reality someone is trying to impose onto reality, using a term I arrived at, through defunding social capital by implementing torture? (See Pierre Bourdieu’s 1991 work entitled “Language and Symbolic Power”).

Advancing Technology: Replacing Nietzsche’s concept of Christianity with a twenty-first-century enemy

An aspect of Nietzsche’s work was the concept of “Christianity as a life-denying force.” Here, we might make the leap to “advancing technology as a life-denying force” in that, similar to how Nietzsche viewed Christianity as fundamentally opposed to life, so too advancing technology in the control of others offers those in the position of political power the ability to deny life itself. In fact, many medical doctors control much of this power. Much like how the mechanisms of control operated during the Medieval Inquisition, efforts that were driven by political rivalries and personal agendas, the deployment of any device of surveillance in a program to advance state authority and establish power operate in much the same way. And this is most definitely what we observe when we observe the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture in defunding of someone’s mental capacity (their very social capital) through torture.

In Nietzsche’s doctrine, one aspect of the will to power is that the will to power is a psychological insight: our fundamental drive is for power as realized in independence and dominance. This will is stronger than the will to survive, as martyrs willingly die for a cause if they feel that associating themselves with that cause gives them greater power, and it is stronger than the will to sex, as monks willingly renounce sex for the sake of a greater cause. While the will to power can manifest itself through violence and physical dominance, Nietzsche is more interested in the sublimated will to power, where people turn their will to power inward and pursue self-mastery rather than mastery over others. An Indian mystic, for instance, who submits himself to all sorts of physical deprivation gains profound self-control and spiritual depth, representing a more refined form of power than the power gained by the conquering barbarian.

On a deeper level, the will to power explains the fundamental, changing aspect of reality. According to Nietzsche, everything is in flux, and there is no such thing as a fixed being. Matter is always moving and changing, as are ideas, knowledge, truth, and everything else. The will to power is the fundamental engine of this change. For Nietzsche, the universe is primarily made up, not of facts or things, but rather of wills. The idea of the human soul or ego is just a grammatical fiction, according to Nietzsche. What we call “I” is really a chaotic jumble of competing wills, constantly struggling to overcome one another. Because change is a fundamental aspect of life, Nietzsche considers any point of view that takes reality to be fixed and objective, be it religious, scientific, or philosophical, as life-denying. A truly life-affirming philosophy embraces change and recognizes in the will to power that change is the only constant in the world.

The major question becomes, “Who has any right to subjugate and force change on others as seen in the torture of Mohammed Al-Qahtani at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, and the many electronically targeted and psychotronically tortured Americans living as civilians within the borders of the United States of America?” (If you do not know who Mohammed Al-Qahtani is, look him up! If you possess even half a conscience, you may be appalled at what you discover.)

Historians At The Desk

Henry Charles Lea was one of the most accomplished American historians of his era, and at his desk, in his library, he produced three weighty tomes on the Medieval Inquisition and four volumes of equal heft on the Spanish Inquisition. The achievement is all the more remarkable given that Lea had almost nothing to work with: the relevant research materials simply weren’t available in America during this time. His family was educated and wealthy which worked to his advantage. He was schooled at home by private tutors and when he came of age, he used his wealth to form a very impressive library. He wrote to booksellers across Europe, acquiring what he needed. Libraries and monasteries lent him original manuscripts. If manuscripts were for sale, he purchased them. If they could not be borrowed or purchased, he had them copied. It was a good time to be a book buyer at this time because the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars had upended the nobility and the Church. As a result, countless libraries had been dumped on the market.

Henry Charles Lea (September 19, 1825 — October 24, 1909) saw the Inquisition’s work less as a purely religious undertaking than as an effort driven by political rivalries and personal agendas, as would be true of any program advanced by any state power or entity establishing their own ruling authority, state or federally endowed or not.

The perspectives of Phillipp van Limborch (Historia Inquisitionis) and John Locke (Letters of Toleration), who were both close friends, viewed the Inquisition as one of the most imposing counterexamples to the state of affairs an enlightened polity should embrace.”

Just as Juan Antonio Llorente questioned in his published monumental work, Histoire Critique de l’Inquisition d’Espagne, the following inquiries:

“How did the Inquisition’s bureaucracy actually work? What happened on a local level, on the ground, when decisions were sent forth from the tribunal in Madrid? What role did the Inquisition come to play in politics? What long-term effects did it have on Spain’s national life — for instance, on its intellectual vitality and its economic development?”

So too, one might ask the same questions of the phenomenon known as Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture. That is, “How do they operate on a local level, on the ground, when decisions are being sent forth from the originating pulpit of power?” Even though a state political authority may or may not be involved in its deployment, the implications are definitely political and more likely to be a self-establishing sovereignty.

The Targeted Individual and How to Explain It

IMAGE: The Human Scale of design implies that architecture and design are meant for the “utmost enjoyable civilized comforts” the modern age has to offer.

It has been said that Civilization itself peers back at us from any historical archive, as it peers back to us through many archeological and anthropological records. Archives kept as a testament to human development and human evolution as well as a testament to periods of its regression and decline. Still one of the best indexical signs attesting to the presence of man’s proclivity towards mass delusions, at least for me, was the phenomenon of the man said to have lived on earth, the Son of God, Jesus Christ where all source documents come to us as only secondary sources providing some evidence the man called Jesus Christ existed. The man known as Christ never wrote anything in his own hand! Not one primary source document exists. So, how are we to really know him?

This leads me to believe this thing called “religion” might be the delusional sanctuary many psychotics and/or neurotics take refuge in. In another time or place, in another space of existence, its very institution may be symbolic for “the sanitarium”, or psychiatric ward for those suffering from mass trauma and mental illness. As a former Roman Catholic, schooled for thirteen years in the Roman Catholic tradition, and as one who felt so deeply for the man known as Jesus Christ that she suffered a religious hallucination otherwise known as a second baptism, I wondered, “Might not the entire reason for electronic targeting and psychotronic torture be to “cure a disease” and cut in half the mass hysteria surrounding a phenomenon?” Interestingly, some young lovers experience a form of their own transcendence in otherwise delusional altered states of consciousness of lust and sexual desire, creating for themselves their own “stairway to Heaven” so to speak. Shakespeare, I think penned it best when he wrote, “Love is merely a madness.” The full quote goes like this:

“Love is merely a madness; and, I tell you, deserves a well a dark house and a whip as madmen do; and the reason why they are not so punish’d and cured is that the lunacy is so ordinary that the whippers are in love too.” ~lines spoken by Rosalind in “As You Like It” by William Shakespeare

Shakespeare also penned the phrase, “Time travels at different speeds for different people. I can tell you who time strolls for, who it trots for, who it gallops for, and who it stops cold for.” One historian commented the daily activities of the form Holy Roman Inquisition translated perfectly into the spy world of the East German secret police formerly known as the Stasi. It would seem the transference of a common culture rooted in the insular spying culture combined a bit of sadism and power politics and was more hell-bent on maintaining its power than protecting national security. Certain artifacts stand out for their sheer banality — concealed cameras in ties, buttons, light fixtures, picture frames, unsuspected household appliances like air conditioning unit vents, thermoses, bras, and trees! Machines for steaming open 600 pieces of mail an hour, the “smell chair”, and even more modern software for tracking targets online activity and location history, software that can piece together a million pieces of shredded paper, reconfiguring them back into the former whole document that they once were, lo-jacks, audio surveillance devices that pick up acoustic sound from mere yards away, as well as a plethora of other surveillance devices, antennas, surveillance systems and methods for gathering “data.” In fact, scrawled across one of the former Stasi buildings in East German is the graffiti, “Freiheit fur Mine Akte.” Which translates to English as “Freedom for my file.” Then I stop and wonder again, “Could Stasi tactics and methods be THAT bad?! I mean, someone like me, a virtual nobody, a girl, has been hoisted to the level of “dangerous sociopathic threat to the community” in a way that makes me look like a serial raping predator? Should I feel honored someone sees me as an ever so menacing and looming presence that I have my very own Leibstandarte SS Adolf, the Fuhrer’s personal guard watchdogging over me, also known as the Third Reich’s eagle!

The Tunnel of Truth

The Tunnel of Truth has a bit of different meaning for me. Once suggested that a Tunnel of Truth should be instituted for major Olympic sports games to thwart acts of terrorism, as a many yards long passageway that would scan people to “sniff out” radiation, explosives, biohazards, and at the same time use facial-recognition software to identify those who may be on a “watchlist.” For me, the Tunnel of Truth relates to psychoanalysis and establishing an individual’s personal identity, those character traits of personality that make people who they are. For me, my Tunnel of Truth had to do with a quest of personal insight and integrity seeking and truth-finding, evidence that may defy what I previously believed to be “the Truth.” I found your assumed “integrity” or “dis-integrity” or “truth” or “lies,” whatever it is you are looking at, can become the painful and upsetting evidence you need to work through. Even exploring the historical archive and making connections to what has historically made humanity both good and evil, still makes humanity good and evil although minor differences in culture remain. As a young academic student in my early 30s, I very much possessed the human proclivity to absolutely believe in a hubris of an “evolved and educated species.” Only to find the collective human conscience from ancient Rome to present-day politics has very much remained the same because the mechanics of government and the technology of war have not at all changed. They have only evolved in technical and scientific ways. Similar to the emergence of a novel and new virus every one hundred years or so, so too are the emergences of novel and new dictators and tyrannical forms of leadership. A famous line in Tacitus notes how eagerly the people of ancient Britain took up Roman customs and devices, observing, “The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as civilization, when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement.”

It can sometimes present as an almost satirical phrase, “The rules are on a human scale.” The meaning implies, of course, that architecture and designs are meant for the “utmost civilized” enjoyable comforts the modern age has to offer, accommodating and promoting that “good human experience.” That is, the accommodations are made to attract a certain type or quality of persons, in promoting positive civilized human behaviors in the respectable sense as opposed to those qualities of experience enjoyed by the “base and uncivilized human animals.” The rules are on a human scale appeal to all the human senses as an enjoyable sensory experience fitted properly for only the upmost refined and cultivated individuals.

In speaking about the use of torture, Cullen Murphy notes, “There are times when people can legally be restrained because of fears that they represent a danger to themselves or others.” Usually, most individuals posing a threat to themselves or others are sent to psychiatric institutions, facilities designed to treat and “rehabilitate mental illness.” He goes on to note, “There are times when people can be targeted simply because they belong to a class of persons perceived as threatening, and there are times when people can be subjected to extreme forms of interrogation, including what amounts to torture, because, it is argued, some greater harm will be prevented.” I do not believe my Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture to be one of them.

What I do believe, is that a central theme is playing out in large part as the reason for my Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture and that it is rooted in theories postulated by Pierre Bourdieu. Bourdieu was a French sociologist and public intellectual who was interested in the dynamics of power operating in society. He was concerned with the nature of culture, how it is reproduced and how it is transformed and how it connects to social stratification and the exercise of powerBourdieu was very much interested in “social capital.” One of his key contributions was the relationship between different types of capital: Economics, Cultural, Social, and Symbolic. Intricately playing into social capital are sex and gender roles as well as youth and the agedbeauty and nonbeauty as well as health and “disease”. These very elements hold special meaning and positions within Bourdieu’s idea of social capitalAspects of social capital can promote game moves made with the same purpose as what counterintelligence agents might use to influence the course of events (known as black operations) by actually making someone intentionally ill or targeting them with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture so as to feign an illusion to your targeted audience that the subject has a very real “illness” in order to better ensure your position and power as a power move in a power game. This happens all the time in theatres of war that utilize spy games and the art of “spin”.

One example of political administrations that have used “dirty tricks” in power play games has been seen in presidents who use the Internal Revenue Service as a weapon against their enemies. In fact, there is a book written by former Franklin & Marshall professor, John Andrew, entitled “Power to Destroy: The Political Uses of the IRS from Kennedy to Nixon.” It is a fact that former presidential administrations of Nixon, Johnson, and Kennedy, and FDR all were reported to have used the IRS as a political weapon against their political enemies. In fact, any business person or government employee with access to government databases with the power to access financial information could potentially run a preliminary investigation into any unsuspecting person’s finance and employment history. During my independent research study in psychoanalysis pertaining to object relations and identity, I stumbled upon a few interesting different research studies regarding the character traits of sadism and aspects of dehumanization (listed below). One of these studies observed a prevalence for the character traits known as the Dark Triad/Dark Tetrad in students who majored in business.

Under McCarthyism, the FBI carried on under the aegis of its counterintelligence program, secret Cointerpro operations (1956–1971), and directed most of its efforts against leftist groups, civil rights activists, and, later, antiwar protesters. A book by A.G. Theoharis & J.S. Cox title “Boss: J. Edgar Hoover and the Great American Inquisition” discusses the life of the entity formerly known as Cointerpro. Cointerpro agents were authorized to use subterfuge, plant agents provocateurs, leak derogatory information to the press, and employ other disruptive tactics to destabilize the operations of targeted groups. So, what do you think the modern-day phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture is all about? They are all about disruptive tactics to destabilize the operations of targeted groups.

Acts of Subculture: From Illegitimacy to Legitimacy

Is it any surprise that Cointerpro’s clandestine operations were shut down in 1971 soon after its existence had been exposed by activists? When at this very same time, various movements addressing the social inequality inherent in American society began taking on a better cohesive shape and started making bigger strides toward independence for certain disenfranchised groups. In response to what had been traditionally perceived as the male hegemony of patterned dominance over women and the personal violence of male patterned political control over women’s behavior in American culture, women began to recognize the male pattern expression in their culture as a culture of sexism. Following the late 1960s “the Great Sexual Transformation” would begin America. In the 1970s we see more women being emancipated from their former domestic gender roles as more women are represented in the workforce. By the end of the 1970s, a majority of American men would also voice their support for sexual equality in family affairs as well. As a result, more women and men, in the late 1970s, identified with a woman’s right to individual personhood and not just objects of domestication and much needed “household props”.

Following the Stonewall Riots in New York City in 1969, homosexuals also began bigger strides for their sexual rights and in the 1970s San Francisco, California would provide an atmosphere free from social stigmas. In addition, it was at this time BDSM chapters began organizing themselves establishing their legal rights to perform the behavior utilizing the concept of “consent” and shifting movement away from criminalization toward decriminalization of this particular, much sought-after sexual form of deviance. It is not surprising that during this same time Cointerpro operations were recognized for what they represented to American society; politically oppressive. This is a key point I am trying to make in reference to my Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture. That is to say, the mentally in performing these targeted acts (criminal behaviors) belongs to a very specific time period in history; McCarthyism and 1956 and Red Scares.

This process, which Jill D. Weinberg calls social decriminalization, is a process that must occur with groups who engage in illegal conduct. Discussions around decriminalization begin their analyses with a law’s repeal or relaxation, focusing on the impact of liberalization. We can refer to Erich Goode’s book “Between Politics and Reason: The Drug Legalization Debate” (1997) and the emergence of decriminalization of marijuana use and the eventual legalization of its use and possession. What we witnessed in the late 1960s and into the 1970s was the social acceptance and move away from traditional sexual gender roles that imposed “domestic work status” on womenas well as the deviant sexual decriminalization of homosexuality and BDSM and its move towards more liberal acceptance surrounding aspects of what is considered to be benign forms of sexual deviance. And in 1973, Texas becomes the first state to start the road to decriminalization of marijuana by reducing the penalty for possession, and in fact, many other states including Oregon, Alaska, Maine, Colorado, California, Ohio, Minnesota, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina South Dakota, Nebraska, New Mexico, and Virginia follow suit by lowering the sentence for possession and fines imposed for possession of the substance. It isn’t until 1996 when California becomes the first state to legalize the use of medical marijuana that a long line of consecutive yearly legislative acts in various states across the United States lead to the ultimate decriminalization, legalized recreational marijuana use. Legalized recreational use begins in Colorado and Washington state in the United States in 2012 (Wikipedia, Timeline of Cannabis Laws in the United States).

Interestingly, marijuana would become criminalized under the Narcotics Control Act of 1956 around the same time Cointerpro operations would begin its clandestine operations due to Red Scares. Perhaps the oppressive politics of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture also possess a similar “time/date stamp” rooted in the oppressive politics of a time era; McCarthyism, 1956, and Red Scares?

In the 1970s, individuals and groups had created for themselves the appropriate conditions in order to convince lawmakers and the public that removing criminal sanctions against their behavior is appropriate. Since rules become the primary basis toward social decriminalization because it transforms violence into acceptable aggression, and since these groups (otherwise labeled as deviant) included womenhomosexuals, BDSM, recreational drug users, but also include Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and the Ultimate Fight Championship (UFC), polygamy, and the “right to die”, more commonly referred to assisted suicide. Social decriminalization requires four (4) conditions: (1) an organized group of participants who participate in the same activity, (2) a shared legal consciousness that the particular behavior involved is not threatening to the safety of the community, (3) an established set of rules and norms that appeal to a legal-rational authority, and (4) a social context where the activity is not too morally verboten.

Not previously discussed was the social decriminalization of behavior rooted in criminal battery laws that allow for physical assaults (physical beatings) in Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). On November 12, 1993, the UFC held its first vale tudo event in the United States with the challenge: fighters from a variety of disciplines pitted against one another — Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu versus Muay Thai, for example — to determine the best hand-to-hand combat style. The UFC had fighters par in an octagonal metal cage, in part for the spectacle and in part because it allowed camera crews to film without interfering with the fights themselves.

And now my final point, that the behavior known as Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture is rooted in the very same thing I opened this discussion with, civilization and humanity’s proclivity toward mass delusionssexualized aggression, and the defunding of an individual’s social capital through targeted acts of violence.

The Phenomenon Known as Torture Creep

Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and others of Obama’s staff in the Situation Room in May 2011 when Osama bin Laden’s compound was raided.

The purpose of the article is to bear light on the historical concept of “sanitation” and/or “gentrification.” That is to say, a cleansing of an area through expulsion or extinction and the phenomenon known as Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assault and psychotronic torture. It also discusses the phenomenon known as “torture creep” a phenomenon that manifested following the aftermath of killing Osama bin Laden in May 2011. In addition, the influence of cultural sociology and the creating of “consent” in BDSM legal proceedings is also discussed and how informal rules that structure consent are unique to family relationships as well as its purpose to bring light to the aspect that certain area hospitals have been involved in the deployment of the phenomenon known as Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture.

“The five stages of dying, posited by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross run from denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. We pass through similar stages when it comes to dealing with historical trauma — and then move on to new stages beyond. One of them might be called sanitation, or perhaps gentrificationWhatever the word, it reflects the fact that eventually history is safely caged and tamed. Any visitor to Antietam or Gettysburg or the Somme has seen how the bloodiest battlefields become landscapes of verdant serenity, primped with tasteful monuments. Romans walk their dogs among the umbrella pines that edge the quiet precincts of the Circus Maximus, where countless Christians went to their deaths.

Sanitation has taken hold in the old Jewish Quarter of Cordoba — still called the Juderia, despite the fact that Jews have been largely gone for five hundred years. Wandering through the narrow, winding streets, a few blocks from the Mezquita, one can’t help recalling peter De Vries’ remark about how so many places are named for what had to be removed in order to make them what they are “(Murphy, 2012, pg. 85).

And it is here I’d like to add a personal comment, and we wonder what the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture is all about?! Helene Fuld Hospital, Trenton Campus, Psychiatric Holding Area, in New Jersey and their use of electronic targeting and psychotronic torture! The seducers of human conscience! which may turn out to be either corrupt employees of the hospital itself! Or perhaps it is the “gods” of industry (specifically research and development employees) who have been instructed by their superiors to “turn water into wine or to turn shit into gold so we can make some money for ourselves in an economic niche! A miracle of rare device, in the advancement of new modern technologies in the name of science, and finding new markets for which to deploy them! It’s important to consider the work of Michel Foucault, The History of Sexuality which was formerly titled “The Will to Knowledge”, and the role of the psychiatric hospital in correcting behavior and returning patients to their families in “much better condition” than when they left (Foucault, 1978, 1995). Remember Antonio Egas Montiz’s frontal lobotomy?

Defining Torture Creep

The concept of Torture Creep is attributed to Bush-era politics in response to 9/11 and the United States’ War on Terror. In an October 2007 Rasmussen poll, 27 percent of Americans surveyed said the United States should torture prisoners captured in the fight against terrorism, while 53 percent said it should not. In a 2012 YouGov poll, 41 percent said they would be willing to use torture — a gain of 14 points — while 34 percent would not, a decline of 19 points (Zegart, 2012). Hence the term “torture creep.” It is also important to note that white, far-right, liberal Republicans were suffering their own crisis of white masculinity during this time, holding public gatherings using the “N” word and touting pictures of Barrack Obama as an indigenous tribal “witch doctor.” The respondents in the 2012 pool were more pro-waterboarding, pro-threatening prisoners with dogs, pro-religious humiliation, and pro-forcing prisoners to remain naked and chained in uncomfortable positions in cold rooms. In fact, many of the polls prior to 2012 that were referenced by Amy Zegart in her article “Torture Creep” reported fewer people likely to use torture, recognizing it as wrong, than people who were willing to use and were okay with it. Even enthusiasm for assassinations of foreign heads of state has risen despite the fact our government has banned assassinating foreign leaders since 1976.

Although unlike Zegart’s opinion for the possible reason for the increase in the public’s desire for torture which she claims is because it is just “easier to support controversial policies after the controversy fades.” I believe torture creep is rooted in a more archaic and deep-seated place in the human psyche. That desire to annihilate and dehumanize those whom we fear most. The roots of sadism and the tendency to annihilate what seem like very real phantoms lurking in the shadows of our fears. There is no want for historical data for this fact involving “mental illness” and those placed in psychiatric hospitals.

We believe slavery has ended because there is no longer an industry for the slave trade. But yet everywhere we look today we see police brutality and the unnecessary killing of young black men and women by policing authorities. We see institutionalized forms of prejudice creeping into how young black women are treated in maternity wards. Are we to believe that violations of basic human rights no longer exist in the realm of psychiatry as well? A common narrative to the Phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking is that the individual is “mentally ill.” And are we to believe that because the human race no longer sees a purpose for institutionalized torture and laws that govern and inform it, the like and size of previous religious Inquisitions, that these acts of brutal torture no longer exist because it’s been “abolished” and it is no longer visible to the naked eye. This form of subtle torture is part of what is known as The Lesser Tradition of specialized tortures which will be discussed shortly.

“The legal scholar Alan Dershowitz, though not a proponent of torture, has argued that democratic governments should make provision for the issuance of official “torture warrants” that would sanction the use of torture in extreme cases — his argument being that torture is employed clandestinely in any event, and it would be better to subject it to legal regulation. “The major downside of any warrant procedure,” Dershowitz writes, “would be its legitimation of a horrible practice, but in my view, it is better to legitimate and control a specific practice that will occur, than to legitimate general practice of tolerating extra-legal actions, so long as they operate under the table of scrutiny and beneath the radar screen of accountability (Murphy, 2012, pg. 87).”

My personal comment is this. That it would never be accepted by conspicuous courts of law because legalized torture flies in the face of what American democracy stands for which is human decency and respect for basic personal rights. The legal proof that this would never be accepted by American legal democracy is the fact our courts do not recognize contracts of BDSM. “Torture warrants”, similar to BDSM, represent a violation of criminal battery laws. Important aspects for this study are the fact of criminal battery law and the site of the family are where people learn what modes of behavior are considered acceptable. “People on the margins of the law, or “in the shadow of the law” as it is commonly put by socio-legal scholars (Macaulay 1963; Mnookin and Kornhauser 1979), are important for this study because this is primarily where people construct consent and develop rules and norms to structure and define their internal relationships (Weinberg, 2016, pg. 10). The tie that binds the three elements, at least for me, is psychiatric treatment, the family, and the psychiatric institution where it is implemented. But to return to my main point, there is a reason why military courts exist and are kept separate from civilian courts. The laws that apply to each are both very different. This is because both BDSM and “torture warrants” lie at the intersection of law and cultural sociology. “Torture warrants” seem to mimic the phenomenon of what is now known as Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assault and psychotronic torture. What are the function of both informal laws and formal codesThe function of law is to shape human behavior. The paucity of work done on the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking and electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture is enough to give voice to the informal nature of its rules, rules that operate in the “shadows of the law.”

Let us consider further Cullen Murphy’s thoughts on legitimized forms of torture historically instituted during Medieval Inquisitions:

“The Spanish Inquisition is not what Dershowitz had in mind, but it, too, sought to legitimate and control a regime of torture, just as the Medieval Inquisition had. Torture might once have been limited to crimina excepta — crimes of the utmost gravity — but over time that category was broadened, and the threshold of permissibility was lowered. The phenomenon is sometimes known as torture creep. It comes in various forms. In the aftermath of killing Osama bin Laden, in May 2011, a number of commentators asserted that the Al Qaeda leader’s hideout had been discovered owing mainly to information gleaned from torture — demonstrating just how worthwhile torture can be. The claim was not true, but the fact that it was made illustrates a moral slide: where once torture was seen as justified only by some “ticking time bomb” scenario, now it was seen as justifiable for obtaining useful intelligence of a lesser kind.

Inquisitors resorted to torture for one main purpose: to elicit statements by the victim, about himself or people he knew, that they could legally regard as “the truth.” Torture was not employed officially as punishment, though it would be impossible to rule out such a motivation — in the hearts of many who wield it, torture has always entailed some measure of punishment. Officially, it was a tool of jurisprudence — an essential element in the hierarchy of proof. Because the gravest of crimes brought a penalty of death, it was essential to have an ironclad assurance of guilty — and no assurance was more persuasive then a confession.

Darius Rejali, the most prominent modern specialist on torture, had divided certain torture techniques into what he calls the Greater and Lesser Stress Traditions. The Greater Tradition consists of methods that are applied with a few limitations and that leave victims with “permanent, visible injuries.” The Lesser Tradition comes with certain rules and leaves “fewer tell-tale marks.” When modern democracies resort to torture, as they do, their tendency has been toward the Lesser Tradition — easier to hide, easier to explain away (Murphy, 2012, pg. 87–88).”

And it is here we can connect the dots from the Lesser Stress Traditions of torture and the phenomenon we know today as Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture. When authoritarian regimes have no such concerns as “the law” because they operate in its shadows. The Lesser Stress Traditions of torture can operate in an environment in which secular authorities are unaware of its presence and it can treat “subjects” as they please, and where legal authority may be at a disadvantage in understanding what this invisible subject actually represents which is compromised freedom. Some of the methods employed could by their nature do irreparable damage. Cullen Murphy writes, “The moral may be that the regulation of torture never really works — it just points the practitioners in new directions. As Rejali writes, ‘When we watch interrogators, interrogators get sneaky.’”

In the end, the informal rules that govern prescribed torture are part of a social order that orders relationships. It is inherent in its culture and informal social rules like formal laws structure human behavior by enabling or constraining social action and by enabling cohesion of a collective (Durkheim, [1893], 1997; Giddens, 1984). We could certainly use this theory to explain why torture goes hand-in-hand with militarized cultures.

The Truth Behind The Phenomenon of Gang Stalking Is What History Would Come To Know As Church Truth versus Apostacy and the Narcissistic Revenge Stemming From “Defection”

Galileo Galilei’s Middle Finger Under Glass: After Galileo died ecclesiastical authorities would not permit him to be interred in consecrated church ground and his body was kept secretly hidden for some time. Eventually, the Catholic Church agreed to have his body interred and many bone fragments were taken by admirers either kept as souvenirs or put on display. For example, a portion of his vertebra (of the fifth lumbar region) is preserved at a medical school in Padua. A thumb, the index finger, and an upper left premolar were missing for many years. The above photo is of his middle finger and is on display under glass in a science museum in Florence, Italy.

“For we know him that said: “Vengeance is mine: I will recompense”; and again: “God will judge his people.” It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” ~Epistle to the Hebrews, 10:30–31

Giordano Bruno

Many people may not know who Giordano Bruno was more or less even know how he died. He became caught in the cogs and wheel of a Satanic device known as the Inquisition. Giordano Bruno was a Dominican priest whose intellectual interests encompassed mathematics, cosmology, magic, and forbidden church literature. He would go on to describe the University of Oxford as a “constellation of the ignorant, pedantic, and obstinate, and a mass of donkeys and swine.” Upon leaving the University on his return to Italy in 1592, he was apprehended by the Inquisition and took into custody. It was clear through surviving church summarizes he was willing to recant on some matters while remaining adamant on others. His issues were mainly theological rather than scientific. He was later sentenced to death by burning. Most likely succumbing to either asphyxiation as fire depletes oxygen near the stake, hypovolemic shock and/or hypoperfusion. Why was this death necessary? It was necessary because of his deviant proclivity to renounce church belief for, I’m sure what Bruno might have considered “theological inaccuracies.” Of course, his proclivity to speak unmindfully to supremely correct grand inquisitors all too tightly sealed his fate. The Vatican would eventually come to admit in 1992, that the Church erred and the episode belonging to Galileo Galilei a “sad misunderstanding that now belongs to the past.”

The Roman Catholic Inquisition and The Phenomenon of Electronic Targeted Assaults and Psychotronic Torture

Many people may not realize what the Roman Catholic Inquisition was all about. It was about a systematic purging of opposing beliefs that challenged the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church and its supreme ruling authority. Included in these opposing beliefs were alternative religious views such as Judaism and Muslim, as well as those who sided with new and emerging scientific beliefs based on scientific evidence; mathematics, physics, and astrology. In addition, anyone who behaved strangely, performing behaviors and rituals outside of normal traditional religious customs were also targeted. One particular group was known as the “benandanti” translated into English means “good walkers.”

The Benandanti

The sad truth about the benandanti is they were simple country people and villagers who were performing what seemed to them ordinary night-time processions of provenance intended to ensure an abundant and fruitful harvest. The benandanti’s nighttime walks were battles for fertility in the good human spirit, armed with sprigs of fennel and sorghum stalks of course, against witches, male and female, to ensure no evil befell their crops. I instantly am reminded of theories surrounding the ancient rituals of the people of Stonehenge. Processions of people with similar earthly objects, making a ritual hike to their sacred spot in the worship of the yearly solstice. Yet the Roman Catholic leaders, at first not knowing what to make of the benandanti, would come to view these ancient rituals as nighttime rituals to gather in darkness to commune with Satan and have sex and produce offspring. Thus, the end of the benandanti and their ancient fertility rituals.

“It has been said pragmatic accommodations are sought out in order to maneuver in dangerous environments. Robust and outspoken opinion is replaced by oblique suggestion or calculated silence, by trimming and feinting. It was the strategy of writers in the Soviet Union and it was the strategy of the times during the Roman Inquisitions. As the Roman Inquisition sought to silence their challenges, so too is the purpose for electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture.”

Galileo Galilei

A comparison can be made between Galileo’s trial and the phenomenon of electronically targeted assaults and psychotronic torture. As one historian has noted, Galileo’s trial was not about science but about obedience. Concern for “truth” had evolved into concern over the stability and continuance of the ecclesiastical rulers’ supreme authority and power.

Galileo’s trial was a dispute between the ruling Ptolemaic view of the heavens, the sun revolves around the Earth and the Earth is stationary versus Copernicus’ heliocentric view of the heavens, the Earth revolves around a stationary sun and revolves on its axis in one 24-hour cycle known as day and night.

Disagreements during tribunals that would ensure a death sentence would be denouncing the one supreme true God of the Catholic Church as well as denouncing the Ptolemy’s view of the heavens. Narcissists don’t like being proven wrong. Just imagine the labor-intensive work and the manpower required to find every reference to the word coitus, a term that was regarded as obscene; blot it out; replacing it with the more demure copula. There was no universal “find and replace” function. The same could be said for Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults with psychotronic torture. What type of manpower would be required for a systematically smooth execution of this type of crime?

The inquisitorial censors were often myopic, childish, capricious, or daft. The modern era would come to witness similar behavior in the behavior of Mark Zuckerberg, ruling Facebook CEO and social media giant. Zuckerberg would be criticized for capriciously censoring (deleting) the online accounts of his challengers and adversaries. Facebook, like the Roman Catholic Inquisition, can certainly be perceived as something that holds the possibility for “that Satanic Device.” Zuckerberg would later be disciplined for his Napoleonic buying behaviors. He was disciplined by the Federal Trade Commission for mishandling users’ data as well as needing to be told he could no longer purchase companies whose primary business was a social media platform and that he must “diversify his portfolio.”

The End of an Era

In the end, the Inquisition was extinguished not because it realized the error of its wrongs, but because it couldn’t cope with the profound change of values in Europe throughout the eighteenth century. Starting in Protestant countries it would move to the Netherlands and then to England. Issues of tolerance was raised — not for the first time, but as a new positive value emerged. Toleration was now being perceived in a different light, as a positive value rather than a negative value, something you praised and were proud of. Before that, tolerance was something you suffered and was done to you. This idea spread and the Inquisition collapsed.

More than anything else, it was the power of ideas. Ideas like “reason,” and “freedom of conscience” began to limit and then undermine the Roman Inquisition. There is one simple point that can be made about the Roman Catholic Inquisition. Its purpose was as a disciplinary institution operated by an entity, the Church, whose claim to authority was based on values and whose tools proved to be the implements needed to change human willpower. More than anything else, an organization based on values must beware of a challenge made on the very same basis. Ideas have no physical body in the physical world. As a result, they are slow to take hold. How inefficient they must appear placed next to brute force. But they are often the most powerful actors of all. One of those actors was the idea of tolerance. John Locke put it like this in 1689:

“Nobody, therefore, in fine, neither single persons nor churches, nay, nor even commonwealths, have any just title to invade the civil rights and worldly goods of each other upon pretense of religion [among other things] … The sum of all we drive at is that every man may enjoy the same right that are granted to others.”

We might look at the renaissance artwork of the famous sculpture Donatello’s “David.” The image of “David”, clearly the smaller weaker man represents the people of Florence, Italy. These people were a mercantile state, much weaker and smaller. David’s triumph over and the defeat of Goliath, clearly represented in the sculpting as a much larger and stronger man, represents the Duke of Milan. In a similar tone, the emergence of a unified Kingdom of Italy brought an end to the Papal States altogether and the Napoleonic Era abolished the Inquisition. Rome was captured by Italian forces in 1870, and Pope Pius IX took refuge in the enclave that would eventually become a sovereign city-state, his temporal powers henceforward restricted to those few acres. The head off of the Dragon had been cut off and, as it has happened so many times throughout history, it was cut off by yet another dictator/tyrant.

Might we not make a similar argument for the abuse to persons suffering electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture? Is the purpose of this form of torture not to illustrate to the victim the supreme ruling authority endowed by the perpetrator?
