How Bureaucratic Institutions Contribute to the Uniform Deployment of Targeting and Dehumanizing Behaviors

Historical records from the “Archivio della Congregazione per la Dottrina della Fede” at the Vatican.

“No one talks: silentio is the explicit rule.” In the Inquisition archive, officially titled “Archivio della Congregazione per la Dottrina della Fede,” this is one of the requirements of being an occupant of the archive. The archive records preserve the mainly grim record of lives disrupted and sometimes summarily put to an end, of ideas called into question and often suppressed, of voices silenced, temporarily or forever, of blind bureaucratic inertia harnessed to moral certainty and to Earthy and Spiritual power. The similarity between archaic Inquisitions of the Church and the high-profile media coverage of egregious wrongs done by political leaders, as well as others residing on Capitol Hill, Hollywood, and other high profile positions, may know all too well what the phrase, “Let the Inquisition Begin” or “Let the Witch Hunt Commence” truly means. Who can forget the 2016 election scandal and the entire four years that followed Trump’s presidential administrative behavior?

The grim reports of the Inquisition and the phenomenon of the Targeted Individual in what has been categorized as Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture also convey a record of lives disrupted and sometimes summarily brought to an end, their voices silenced, temporarily or forever. The Inquisition, as is the phenomenon of the Targeted Individual, is an action taken in the belief of masquerading “virtue” but somehow seems to go far beyond what that word implies. For what is any archive or historical repository but some sliver of what civilization has wrought on others; for good or bad?

It was the Roman Inquisition that put Galileo on trial for his arguments about the heavens. This inquisitorial spark, with its rhythms and procedures and all its insanities, will be recognizable to anyone with experience with large bureaucratic institutions. Men mad to be normal who invent technologies, policies, and protocols to control, exploit, change (treat) and kill their creditable threats in a manifestation of a delusion about another’s perceived or fantasized identity.

The Inquisition can be seen as something greater and more insidious, as is the phenomenon of the Targeted Individual. It can be viewed as a sustained effort to pursue a single institution or promote a single coalition’s success. That the ills of the world have been spawned by the Masons, the Illuminati, the Trilateral Commission, Opus Dei, Skull and Bones, or Goldman Sachs represents the conspiracy-theory view of human history and an easy way out. If only the source of evil were so simple to identify, so easy to confront. Can you see that the Inquisition was enabled by some of the broader forces that brought the modern world into existence? Cullen Murphy said this fact makes the inquisitions of various kinds “a recurring and inescapable feature of modern life.” I say inquisitions, witch hunts, and the phenomenon of the targeted individual are being played out as an infinite game in game theory of NON-COOPERATIVE gaming based in competition because advancing technology promotes and advances the game (constantly advancing high-technology, and weapons as a business is an infinite game). However, the game between the players/coalitions are finite and with respect to Inquisitions and the Targeted Individual, will come to an end until one side commits to the will of the dominant coalition, dies, or the game ends in a draw. Business is an infinite game and the industrialized military complex is a business. As I have said, this means the business of advancing technologies and new weapons are also infinite games. Inquisitions and persecutions, as do targeting of certain groups, advance hand-in-hand with civilization itself.

Why is it, at any given time throughout the historical archive, intolerance, hatred, and suspicion of “the other,” often based on ethnic, racial, gender, sexual orientation, and religion have always been with us? It is because its very purpose is “to promote a change in those being tortured.” Through warrant, an inquisition’s purpose was to enforce and discipline among its members of the Church (not outside of it). The purpose was to correct the behavior of the individuals who had “fallen into error who had in some way loosened the bonds that previously bound them to another.” Looked at in this way, it very closely resembles the phenomenon of the targeted individual suffering group (gang) stalking attacks, electronic targeting and psychotronic torture. Much like the bureaucratic institutions that guided the various inquisitions throughout history. In like vein, gang stalking utilizes a centralized command exercising their “authority” outside the limits of civil and criminal law. The highly localized efforts of conducting inquisitions and interrogations of the Dark Ages have echoed and rippled its way to the White House and the Justice Department. Institutions that are organized and governed by formal legal protocols and procedures. So too, do interrogations and inquisitions of organized crime and organized contract stalking. In a repetition of history, the targeted individual has become like the Cathars and what the Cathars represented to the Dominican Catholic. Or similar to what a Protestant meant to a Jesuit. The difference between Dominican Catholic and Jesuit is this. Have you ever met a Cathar?

The phenomenon of the targeted individual is like any other inquisitorial process that is governed by an “arm of the law” or monarch. But whose idea of “justice” is being served?

Tomas de Torquemada, a Dominican monk, has become synonymous with the inquisition as a whole. His expulsion of unconverted Jews from his kingdom in 1492 cleansed Spain of religious contaminants during the Spanish Inquisition. I believe this is what Targeted Individuals represent to their “Inquisitors”; that is, a contamination or toxin that needs to be expelled from the environment.

What led to the conclusion of Inquisitions? Some may say “a shortage of combustible material” as many were burned alive. But I say it never really ended. It has only transformed itself. The players are different but the GAME is still the same. It’s a NON-COOPERATIVE GAME based in competition where a creditable threat sparks the formation of a COALITION. A COALITION that has supreme value and that value has been endowed upon the COALITION’S MEMBERS who are clearly in a superior playing position on the field and where the superior coalition is absolutely always right.

It’s hard for me to respect the Catholic Church where no fewer than three grand inquisitors went on to become Pope. The main focus of Roman Inquisitions wasn’t just to eradicate “religious heretics” it was homosexuals, people accused of witchcraft, and certain kinds of quirky or annoying free thinkers and gadflies who might be considered today as “public intellectuals.” I think the inquisitorial need to torture and abuse may have very well been due to the fact that a bunch of very powerful, angry men were denied coitus which may have very well cured them of their affliction. This is certainly the reason behind why some men choose female targets for “sex grooming” (Van Brunt, Murphy, Pescara-Kovach, & Crance, 2019). Women often become the targeted objects of men’s disgruntled hatred during times of “non-selection” in mating. These men, as a general observation, possess some type of personality disorder like narcissistic personality disorder or schizoid personality disorder.

So, in theory, just like how inquisitions could rely on a certain amount of revenue confiscated from the individuals they targeted, similar to how the Germans during the Jewish Holocaust of World War II usurped money, property, and valuable objects from their Jewish targets to pay off their war debts, so too, the Targeted Individual suffers similar types of confiscations. Whether it be money, bodily usurpations such as rape, or other forms of theft of property. However, the most prominent one being the confiscation of identity, which may be followed by an unwilling confiscation of property. But what gives an Inquisition or persecution the staying power it needs to operate? It is given the power to operate for any sustained length of time by giving it an institutional life. This means a form of bureaucratic, legislative life, as seen in medical insurance and healthcare, either paid for by insurance or out of pocket. This is another type of business bureaucracy and another type of infinite game. Once institutionalized forms of power and governance became standard operating procedures, we see the emergence of persecutions known as inquisitions. They are not confined to religion. They are political as well. The targets can be large or small. An inquisitorial impulse can quietly take root in the very system of government and civil society that orders our lives; hospitals, physicians’ offices, dentists’ offices, etc. In fact, research has uncovered the fact that in business certain types of dehumanization do in fact occur (Haslam, 2006). Such types of dehumanization are observed in failing to provide people of color adequate healthcare as well as traits consistent with the Dark Triad and subclinical sadism in people possessing business degrees in general (Lyons & Jonason 2015; Krick, Tresp, Vatter, Ludwig, Wihlenda & Rettenberger, 2016; Johnson, Plouffe & Saklofske, 2019).

Cullen Murphy has outlined the following tools need for “Inquisitions and Persecutions”:

“The tools are these: There needs to be a system of law, and the means to administer it with a certain amount of uniformity, there needs to be a well-defined process for conducting interrogations and extracting information. Procedures must exist for record-keeping, and for retrieving information after records have been compiled and stored. An administrative mechanism — a bureaucracy — is required, along with a cadre of trained people to staff it. There must be an ability to send messages across significant distances — and also some capacity to restrict the communications of others. And there must be a source of power, to ensure enforcement.

The source of power can vary. From the outset, the religious aims of the Inquisition were enmeshed with the might of secular rulers. The relationship was sometimes symbiotic and always complicated, and it changed over time. With the Medieval Inquisition, the Church sought to leverage secular power to achieve its ends (though the secular authorities had their own purpose in mind). The Spanish Inquisition threw this arrangement into reverse: the crown made the inquisition an official component of the Spanish state. During the Roman Inquisition, the tribunal was controlled directly by the papacy, and within its own territories, church and state were the exact same thing. (Outside the Papal States, the Inquisition operated on terms laid down by local governments.) The twentieth century would bring a new evolutionary stage: inquisitions that lay fully in the hands of the state and required no religious dimension at all.

And there is one more factor in the making of an Inquisition; the conviction that one is absolutely right. Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani, the prefect of the Holy Office through most of the 1960s, adopted as his motto the Latin phrase Semper idem — ‘Always the same.’”

We might conclude the phrase, Semper idem, as a rather perfect phrase for a game that seems to be an infinite game.

What The Book of Job Teaches Us About Game Theory and the Phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking of the Targeted Individual

Illustration of Job from the Old Testament

This article makes a point to make a literary comparison of the afflictions suffered by Job in the Bible and the phenomenon of electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture, and that both are of a similar nature. This article also makes a point to define and diagnose the “God” of these assaults with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) as outline by the DSM-IV. I borrow on the work of Donald Capps in a journal article he wrote for Pastoral Psychology, as well as psychoanalysts who have contributed to psychoanalytic theory. Authors like Heinz Kohut, Herbert Rosenfeld, Nancy Chodorow, and Melanie Klein.

In the Book of Job, after Job, a faithful and upright individual suffers losses of livestock, the death of his 10 children by marauding men, followed by an affliction of open sores all over his body (Behcet’s Disease), he wants to confront God face-to-face, and not through intercessory prayer either. He wants to talk to him directly and ask why he is being punished? For Job inquires, “Why have you made me your target?”(Job 7:20) Job finds God’s elusive nature a problem. The job cannot confront God face-to-face because he is “God.” It isn’t until God presents himself to Job in form of a whirlwind does Job inquires of God’s cruelty.

What the reader/listener is aware, and Job himself is not, is that “God” and “Satan” have entered a GAME. After roaming about the Earth and walking around in it, Satan enters the court of God. God wants to know if he has noticed his faithful follower Job in which Satan replies that he had. Satan challenges God by saying the only reason he is so faithful is that God has given him everything; abundant and plentiful livestock, property, financial wealth, 10 children. Satan tells God if he strikes out his hand, Job wouldn’t be so faithful. God, refusing to hurt his faithful follower himself, offers Job to Satan and says do with him as you wish but do not harm him. Two players, God and Satan, in a finite game with the goal to see what type of rational or irrational choices will be made by the game piece called Job. Remember the movie Trading Places with Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd?

A strategic attack is placed upon Job’s blessings: his livestock is struck dead, all 10 children murdered, and Job is afflicted with open, painful sores all over his body. All this which God allows because he believes Job cannot be turned against him in the wager he has made with Satan.

What of God’s invisibility? God cannot be reached by Job directly in the physical sense because of God’s nature. In fact, God instead, God presents himself to Job as the superior controlling player in the game and manifests himself as a whirlwind in which he speaks to Job directly in the form of a whirlwind for five chapters. It is during these conversations we get a glimpse of a controlling, unempathetic, sadistically cruel God. The diagnosis by Donald Capp in Pastoral Psychology has been narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) and he has proven God has met all nine criteria in various books of the Old Testament including the Book of Job. In fact, God belittles Job’s intelligence and inferior knowledge through a series of rhetorical questions, for it is God who is clearly the superior, all-knowing deity. And to further add insult to injury, God basically says to Job how dare you question my justice? I am the superior person in this arrangement and not YOU! How dare YOU pronounce me wicked so that YOU may be right? He says Job’s claims are recklessly bold and insolent. This is the typical response we expect to get from a person with NPD, for God is guilty as hell for causing Job’s pain and suffering but eludes being blamed for it by gaslighting his victim.

What’s more, is God’s showy entrance into the world of living human beings. He chooses, not as a disguise the shape of mortal man or “a messenger from God” with which to identify with Job in human form, but he appears to Job as a showy whirlwind. What a grand entrance for this “superior being”! He displays a similarly consistent style of showmanship in Exodus when he exacts the ten (10) plagues against Egypt. What a performance of perfectly destructive showmanship; flies, gnats, frogs, locusts, and inflicting man and beast with boils all over their bodies. He even rains down sulfur and fire on the city of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Bible story found in Genesis [Gen. 19:23–24]. But does God ever take on responsibilities like creating economic infrastructure, supporting foreign trade, providing opportunities for employment, the development of aqueducts, and the building of cities, providing social services for the poor, sick, and the disabled? All these aspects are consistent with exceptional statesmanship, the work and hard grit of “lowly humans” seem to be countered by fierce, military, pyrotechnics. In fact, God doesn’t do any of the things attributed to the hard work and perseverance of human populations, although he does claim to have given the people who create these accomplishments the “gifts” and “talents” to do so. Of all of God’s skills, showmanship is surely one of them, however, it appears he is lacking when it comes to a supportive leadership role, characteristics we typically attribute to traits like honesty, integrity, intrepidness, hard work, and perseverance of adversity to the human race. And not God! At least as far as the Book of Job is concerned. We could also discuss his leadership skills when he hand-selected Moses and guided him through the desert for 40 years, where, under God’s navigation and leadership, made them wander like nomads for 40 years! Wandering nomads may very well have walked in circles during their 255-mile trek to the promised land. Exceptional skills of statesmanship belong to excellent leaders which God is clearly not. At least when it comes to the Book of Job.

Destructive Showmanship and Destructive Narcissistic Defense Function of NPD; A review of Herbert Rosenfeld’s work

We can make connections and comparisons to the aspect of destructive showmanship of a militarized defensive posture of God with his earthquakes and the pyrotechnics of raining fire and brimstone from the sky and make a connection to the presence of infantile psychic destructive forces within the construct of narcissistic personality disorder where the purpose for an exhibition of power is to pervert and block growth and development as well as providing an attacking defensive function against victims, where devaluing and depreciating the subject to the point of rendering them “useless” and “worthless” (Rosenfeld, 1971) can be made in both the plight of Job, the plight of the Jewish Holocaust, and the plight of the Targeted Individual suffering electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture.

As I have stated, I can make a direct connection and comparison between this analysis of the Book of Job, right-wing radical Republican liberals (Mayer, 2016), and the analysis Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture which are obvious acts of destructive showmanship and not supportive statesmanship.

In another bulleted point, God said to Moses, “Go into Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the heart of his servants, that I may show these signs of mine among them, and that you may tell in the hearing of your son and of your son’s son how I have made sport of the Egyptians and what signs I have done among them; that you may know that I am the Lord” (Exod. 10:1–2). The whole idea is to draw attention to himself through a few signs that make sport of the Egyptians, making them look rather foolish. Is this not what game theory has taught us about warfare and to which reveals to us the purpose of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture. That it is nothing more than a demonstration of how “stupid,” “weak,” “childish,” “foolish” the victim is? A flashy array of showmanship utilizing hi-tech advanced technology and the smoke and mirrors of a seduction utilizing implanted software on victim’s computer devices that “hack into” the private lives of the victims as well as implanted biological devices that “hack into” the victim’s brains? Creating disruption, distraction, denial of rights, and the illusion of an “omnipotent and powerful God” in order to elicit in the victim feelings of “powerlessness,” “inferiority,” and “fear” against a clearly “superior power.” And if we consider the aspect of victim selection in populations suffering malevolent forms of NPD, we see victims tend to be weaker, vulnerable, accessible targeted populations for the narcissist.

Another point to make is this. Although the readers/listeners to the Book of Job are made aware of the wager between God and Satan, Job, himself, is not. As a result of this lack of privileged information, Job becomes confused as to the reason for his punishments. God and Satan both know Job is blameless, upright, and faithful. The dilemma in Job’s situation is in the folly of trying to understand “God’s ways” when certain “human people” (non-ecclesiastical) are not privileged “to know the mind of God.” Here we might make a literary comparison to the work of Goethe in his play Faust. What follows for Job is confusion, as well as a deception by the very God he loves and trusts. Every good detective knows a criminal will lie through his teeth. That is why detectives are taught techniques in uncovering the lies told by criminal agents. But Job does not shrink in the face of a larger-than-life dictator and says, “Look! I have become of little account. What shall I reply to you?” In other words, I’ve clearly been reduced to a 10th of my worth, you clearly took away from me what you wanted, demonstrating to me you clearly hold the superior position. What am I to say to you?

With regard to Group (Gang) Stalking as the reason for its manifestation is for its purpose in GAME PLAY, then the reason I contend it has been instituted upon the victim is because that the victim has achieved Nash’s Equilibrium in his/her lifestyle. And Nash’s Equilibrium states that “… Nash equilibrium is a decision-making theorem within the game theory that states a player can achieve the desired outcome by not deviating from their initial strategy.” So, if a player has no incentive to make a change, or consider an alternate choice in his/her lifestyle, then, how is one to illicit a change? And the answer to that question, as was Satan’s hoped-for outcome in the Book of Job, is to elicit a change in the victim’s choices by inflicting a painful and tormenting, outside opposing force, upon the victim, which takes the form of electronic targeted physical and psychotronic assaults in Targeted Populations, or in Job’s case, inflicting him with catastrophic loses and painful open sores. And the man who confronted me over Quora.com while I was discussing my experience as a Targeted Individual stated it was “because I couldn’t imagine anything better for myself.” This is in line with Satan’s response to God, “Job is only faithful to you because you give him everything!” It would seem that prosperity and wealth is the difference that separates the classes. And I contend the reason for my targeting.

The biggest development in the advancement of Job’s position would have been in the revelation that what is being done to him is nothing more than a GAME! A game bought about because Job is living in prosperity under the protection and benevolence of God. But because Job is not privileged to the information that God and Satan are only playing a game, he remains preoccupied with his suffering and punishments, endlessly wondering what he has done wrong to displease God. The fault, as is the faultline in the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalked Targeted Individual suffering electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture, can be viewed as when Job’s friends come to assist him, attempting to explain to Job with limited understanding and knowledge regarding “God’s ways”. The unavailable information denied them is in the fact that God and Satan are, in fact, at the craps table at Trump’s casino playing a GAME with Job’s very life and welfare just to see “what Job will do next.” The unavailable knowledge is that it is all a GAME to transform Job and darken his faith against God! And here we might ponder the fact of whether or not the phenomenon of the Targeted Individual suffering electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture might not be a purposefully crafted design, an experiment if you will, using hi-tech advances (the militarized defensive posture akin to earthquakes and fiery pyrotechnics of the Old Testament) to transform the subject’s [a Job substitute] “own narcissism” (Kohut, 1966/1986).

Kohut noted that like all complex human activities, creativity involves the whole personality, and thus a wide range of psychological structures and drives. God clearly is a creative being and creativity is a much needed attribute in transforming destructive narcissistic infantile psychic forces into more productive modes of socialized behavior. He had created many things. “But clearly, more than just the narcissistic energies are involved … But narcissism plays a key role in the creative activity of the individual “as a spur, driving him toward fame and acclaim” and which we could certainly say of God. Another narcissistic aspect of creativity is the “idealizing libido” which manifest itself in one’s own passionate involvement in creative work. The analogy between this involvement and the mother’s love for her unborn fetus and newborn baby is often invoked, but Kohut believes that “the creative person’s relationship to his work has less in common with the expanded narcissism of motherhood than with the still restricted narcissism of early childhood” (p. 75). In fact, “the personality of many unusually creative individuals is more childlike than maternal,” and “the experiments of some of the great in science impress the observer with their almost childlike freshness and simplicity” (p. 75) [Capps, 2009].”

Capps goes on to further say,

“Thus, whether in art or in science, the creative individual “is less psychologically separated from his surroundings than the noncreative one; the I-you barrier is not as clearly defined,” and the “intensity of the creative person’s awareness of the relevant aspects of his surroundings is akin to the detailed self-perceptions of the schizoid and the childlike: it is nearer to a child’s relationship to his excretions or to some schizophrenics’ experiences of their body, than to a healthy mother’s feeling for her newborn child” (p. 75). In this connection, Kohut cites the work of Phyllis Greenacre and Kurt R. Eissler, noting that “their findings are consistent with the proposition that the artist invests his work with a specific form of narcissistic libido” (p. 76). The very fact that creative people “tend to alternated during periods of productivity between phases when they think extremely highly of their work and phases when they are convinced that it has no value, is a sure indication that the work is connected with a form of narcissistic libido” (p. 77). Thus, consistent with Freud’s view that the narcissistic drives originate in the child’s desire to recover the sense of perfection that be originally enjoyed, Kohut concludes:

Creative artists, and scientists, may be attached to their work with the intensity of an addiction, and they try to control and shape it with forces and for purposes which belong to a narcissistically experienced world. They are attempting to re-create a perfection which formerly was directly and attribute of their own; during the act of creation, however, they do not relate to their work in the give-and-take mutuality which characterizes object-love. (p. 77) [Capps, 2009]”

With regard to the limited information available to victims of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture, a.k.a. The Targeted Individual, the confusion to their plight is further compounded by the fact that disinformation regarding the phenomenon gets passed around the internet. In my experience with Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture, as an umbrella term assigned to it that does not accurately categorize it, it is most likely being carried out by someone who is suffering from NPD or perhaps some other type of personality disorder such as schizoid personality disorder in combination with a clustering of the Dark Tetrad traits (sadism, Machiavellianism, narcissism, psychopathy). If we consider Capps’ comment regarding the personality type of God in his analysis,

“One could just as well argue that God suffers from schizoid personality disorder, whose essential feature is “a pervasive pattern of detachment from social relationships and a restricted range of expression of emotions in interpersonal settings (DSM-IV).” Such persons often seem indifferent to the approval or criticism of others and do not appear to be bothered by what others may think of them. We can easily imagine that such a person might help someone overcome colon cancer and then subsequently create a flood in which this person perishes, and does not have much feeling about either of these occurrences or even consider that they might appear contradictory (Capps, 2009).”

To further illustrate aspects of schizoid personality disorder (SPD), I will gather from my own personal experience as a rape victim. Men who rape women may very well have suffer from SPD. SPD is at the heart of abnormal object relations based on Kleinian theory (Jacobs, 2007). As known rapists operating in the communities are split against their maternal love object (Palmer, 2011). As a result, men who rape can demonstrate a form of “detachment from social relationships,” especially concerning women through repetitive sexual assaults. Men of this type often have a restricted range of expression or emotions which is also termed “shallow effect” during consensual intercourse. This restricted range of expression and/or emotions may, at times, seem to be connected with drug and alcohol abuse but because the perpetrator’s history of violence is most likely due to SPD. During sessions of consensual sex, men who rape may display shallow effect which is characterized by a lack in depth of emotional feeling in combination with mechanistic robot-like movement, but in scenarios of forceable sexual assault, these men express themselves, although considered abnormal and antisocial behavior, with a range of almost “normal” emotional content and movement consistent with normal heterosexual passion.

However, in its discussion of the nine criteria required for narcissistic personality disorder, the DSM-IV notes that often implicit in their inflated judgements concerning their own accomplishments is an underestimation or devaluation of the contributions of others (criterion 1); that they may ruminate about “long overdue” admiration and privilege and compare themselves favorably with famous or privileged people (criterion 2); that their own self-esteem is enhanced by the idealized value they assign to those with whom they associate (criterion 3); that their self-esteem is usually very fragile and they therefore fish for compliments, expect their arrival to be greeted with great fanfare, and are astonished if others do not covet their possessions (criterion 4); that they expect to be catered to and are puzzled or furious when this does not happen, assume that they do not have to wait in line, consider their priorities to be so important that others should defer to them, and get irritated when others fail to assist in their very important work (criterion 5); that they expect to be given whatever they want or feel they need, no matter what it might mean to others, and form friendships or romantic relationships only if the other person seems likely to advance their purposes or otherwise enhance their self-esteem (criterion 6); that they assume that others are totally concerned about their welfare, discuss their own concerns in inappropriate and lengthy detail while failing to recognize that others have feelings and needs, and treat those who talk about their own problems and concerns with impatience and contempt (criterion 7); that they begrudge others their successes or possessions, feeling that they better deserve those achievements, admiration, or privileges, and devalue the contributions of others, particularly when those individuals have received acknowledgement or praise for their accomplishments (criterion 8); and that they tend to make their disdain for others very apparent, such as by complaining about a clumsy waiter’s “stupidity” or concluding a medical evaluation with a condescending evaluation of the physician (criterion 9).

And as Donald Capps has carefully illustrated for us, God in the Old Testament meets the nine criteria for NPD. In addition, another important point I would like to include is the information that aspects of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture, at least as I have experienced the, can be analyzed in the same manner, as it presents a similar dilemma in, not only game theory, but also in Job’s dilemma in the Bible Book of Job in the Old Testament. And the person who is at the root of this phenomenon clearly demonstrates he is in full possession of a “God Complex” better known as a personality disorder and that this person values his identity because he carefully conceals it from exposure much like God who calls himself “I AM WHO I AM.” When prompted by Moses to reveal his name, God said; “At this God said to Moses: “I SHALL PROVE TO BE WHAT I SHALL PROVE TO BE.” And he added: “This is what you are to say to the sons of Israel, “I SHALL PROVE TO BE” has sent me to YOU [Exodus 3:14].” Some translations use the phrase “I AM WHO I AM.”

Let’s consider the aspect reflected in the Book of Job when God allowed himself to be drawn into a wager with Satan and this fact evidences God’s rather fragile self-esteem. “A person with a secure sense of self-esteem would not worry much as to whether someone was loyal to him. He would accept this loyalty as a given and appreciate it for what it represented and helped him to accomplish (Capps, 2009).” This ties into the faultlines and fragilities of masculinity Nancy Chodorow has theorized about in Individualizing Gender and Sexuality: Theory and Practice. Men who are not secure in their identity will sometimes fall victim to acts of aggression and violence (Barna, 2021). Nancy Chodorow writes,

“Humiliation, specifically, is especially a male-male — originally father-son — affair. In the normal developmental course of events, much hinges on how a boy relates to his father and turns into a man — the delicate negotiation of this transformation, of identification, of how to replace or join without bringing on retaliation, castration, or humiliation. All of these, in turn, depend partly on a father’s own sense of confident masculinity and selfhood. … (Chodorow, 2012, pp. 131).”

“In addition, the fact God entered into this wager demonstrates a clear lack of empathy and is a demonstration that he is either unwilling or incapable to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others (Capps, 2009).” The fact that God would place Job in the direct line of a firestorm from an evil malevolence clearly speaks of how much he truly cared about Job and Job’s suffering. “Even when he appeared to Job in the whirlwind, he did not ask Job how he was feeling, much less apologize to Job for putting him through his awful ordeal. Instead, he told Job that God did not know what he was talking about, thus intimating that this man who had been so faithful to him was not very intelligent (an unintended irony?). This attack on Job’s intelligence had its desired effect because when God stopped to catch his breath, Job responded that he was of a little account and we would speak no more [Job 40:3–4] (Capps, 2009).”

If we consider a research article from Psychiatry Research published in 2018 and completed to assess the gender differences in populations with NPD, it states:

“Although this disorder is estimated to affect 7.7% of males and 4.8% of females in the general population (Stinson et al., 2008) and is associated with substantial functional impairment and psychosocial disability (Stinson et al., 2008), it remains one of the least studied personality disorders (Caligor et al., 2015) [Hoertel, Peyre, Lavaud, Blanco, Guerin-Langlois, Rene, Schuster, Lemogne, Deloreme & Limosin, 2018].”

If we make a comparison to borderline personality disorder (BPD) and the gender distributions within populations of BPD, and consider the criterion for its diagnosis, we come to discover that it is far less likely that God or the person responsible for the electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture of Targeted Individuals is a female (Silberschmidt, Lee, Sanarini & Schulz, 2015).

To further illustrate the argument for God’s NPD in the Book of Job, one might think that when Job said he would speak no more, it would have ended the matter, but God would not let Job off the hook quite that easily. Instead, he demanded that Job speak by responding to the questions that God was putting to him. He told Job to “gird up his loins like a man,” for “I will question YOU, and you declare TO ME,” adding, “Will you even put me in the wrong? Will you condemn me that you may be justified?” [40: 7–8]. It’s hard to imagine a more unfeeling attack on a man who is struggling just to keep alive, especially when we consider that God entered into the wager with Satan merely to prove that there are lots of people who admire God for who he is and not merely for what he does for them. An impartial reader of Job would probably conclude that Job’s response to the effects of the wager proved Satan’s point, that, in effect, God knew that Job’s reaction to what had happened to him would have forced God to concede that he had lost the bet with Satan. Perhaps this was why he demeaned Job, for a narcissist does not take kindly to being proven wrong.

What’s more, is in knowing the Book of Job’s purpose is to produce an effect/affect in the reader/listener rather than to communicate a literal idea. How is the reader made to feel upon learning that God and Satan are playing a game with Job’s life? As a faithful follower and diligent servant to his Lord and Master, a valued follower to God, in return what is God’s reward for such loyalty? Job is thrust into a GAME with Satan and God who will toy with his welfare; his emotions, his life (health), his faith, and his financial well-being. And, in return for all this suffering placed upon a blameless follower, for the purpose of a defensive posture supporting God’s very male ego, God blatantly demeans Job with a bullying approach condemning him for audaciously “questioning His justice.”

Another bulleted point is in the very similar way of how God conceals his identity and the perpetrators’ to electronic targeted assault and psychotronic torture also hide their identity from their victims. Capps noted, “God has a grandiose sense of self-importance and believes that he doesn’t have to have a name assigned to himself. He states, “I AM WHO I AM” which is an indication of such grandiosity. Whereas other deities had names suggesting that they were the gods of the people residing in a given locale, God took a name that not only drew attention to himself but also manifested the sort of grandiosity of which narcissists are famous, for he says, in effect, that a person as important as he does not have to be identified: “Who I am is who I am [Capps, 2009).”

Can we not say this as well for electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture and the plight of the Targeted Individual? Alternately, we hear the phrase spoken, “It is what it is.” This gives the speaker a convenient exit towards an excuse not to take responsibility for issues when there is clearly a need for corrective actions. I have heard abusers speak this phrase in order to elude the work of recovery. If an impoverished child falls ill with HIV because his/her mother is a prostitute who has acquired full-blown AIDS, certainly we wouldn’t let that child perish? Would we? Clearly, this is not what Americans stand for. We would not allow that child to perish without proper medicine just because of the inequities of a misguided parent. No, we would not. Neither would we seek to further punish that child for belonging to the lower classes. We would provide supportive statesmanship and social welfare benefits (Democratic statesmanship). Perhaps even provide improved educational opportunities in learning. This type of statesmanship clearly deviates from right-wing radical liberal Republicans who want to do what they want to do and the right-wing radical liberal Republican groups that form under the guidance of the Koch brothers. What’s more, is we could make similar comparisons to right-wing radical liberal groups that gathered at Charlottesville Virginia in 2017. Such events as the Unite the Right Rally where various white supremacy groups rooted white Klan ideology, alt-right, neo-Confederates, neo-fascists, white nationalists, neo-Nazi, Klansman, and various right-wing militias groups gathered in protest.

I propose, that just like the Book of Job, the purpose of electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture is to illicit an effect/affect in the reader/listener. The purpose of electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture is to illicit a feeling/emotion (fear/agitation), a response (verbal aggression/silence), some type of action/behavior (inaction/action/stay-at-home/ leave the house) and/or induce alternate states of consciousness (such as sedation or stimulation/inducing dream-like states through the use of new technologies of eSTIM as seen in Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) research) [Khan, 2016]. We can compare this to reports of random acts of gun violence in people who claimed they were being electronically targeted. To say, that the people claiming group (gang)stalking with electronic targeted assaults or psychotronic torture were “mentally ill” does the investigation an injustice because of one simple overlooked element; GAME THEORY. Game Theory can illuminate for us the rational choices made by characters in texts ranging from the Bible to Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 as well as in the analysis of irrational choices made by men in random acts of gun violence. For this reason, we can explicate strategic questions in law, history, and philosophy from Game Theory.

They claim the “mental illness” of the victim suffering electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture is the reason, yet I will clearly demonstrate, point for point, how the perpetrators of such violence are just as mentally ill. So that the question becomes, Is it me? Or is it them? Am I the “problem?” Or are the perpetrators the problem? Because what it sounds like to me, is that phenomenon of the Targeted Individual, there appear to be two opposing groups of people and one of them is more mentally ill than the other in trying to annihilate them through clandestine electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture!

CONCLUSION

The comparison made between the Book of Job (Job’s dilemma) to the content narrative of electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture of the Targeted Individual and the likelihood that person carrying out these destructive attacks possess NPD or some similar type of personality disorder can be summed up as follows:

(1) God’s grandiose sense of self-importance in exaggerating his superiority. He in fact refuses to identify himself with a name saying, “I AM WHO I AM” (Exodus 3:14). Similarly, we see the perpetrator to electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture pre-occupied with similar refusal to divulge their identity as can be supported through the empirical evidence of invisible assaults against human populations in which the perpetrator carefully conceals their identity similar to ransomware attacks. If we consider the aspects of prosperity and wealth as characteristics that separate the classes, we can contend the reason for such game play in electronic targeting, as seen in ransomware attacks, is in the purpose to diminish the other while acquiring some of that very prosperity for God himself.

(2) God seems to be preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited power and brilliance. God has repeatedly demonstrated a tendency towards destructive showmanship causing earthquakes and raining fire and brimstone from the sky and causing various plagues. Similarly, we see the perpetrator to electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture pre-occupied with similar fantasies of unlimited power and brilliance. In showy displays that make their targets look foolish and stupid as is witnessed in people who carry out acts of bullying and ransomware attacks. Some victims of ransomware attacks, silently pay off those who victimize them out of embarrassment.

(3) God believes himself to be “special” and deserving of “special treatment” because he uniquely identifies with “special people of high-status” or “privileged institutions.” This was demonstrated in the book of Exodus 3:11–13 when God only chooses the tribe known as the Levites because they were considered “special” with special talents and skills and to which all other tribes were not considered. As a result, only the tribe of Levite was selected as “God’s special people.” I did not mention this in my paper, but I’m mentioning it now. This is a reference to a form of supremacy (white Klan supremacy) as well as its connection to the concealment of information as demonstrated in the Book of Job, in where Job was not privileged to the knowledge that Satan and God were engaged in a game using Job as a playing piece. Institutions like the CIA and the NSA do not make certain information publicly known. As a result, certain individuals are only allowed access to privileged information. Likewise, high-profile criminal cases may also conceal information from the public to protect the integrity of the investigation and certainly, criminal conspiracy and acts of organized crime carry out similar acts of concealment. By reducing the Targeted Individual to a shadow of his/her former self, the perpetrator can appear to be much more powerful.

(4) God is interpersonally exploitative. As a result, God is well versed in Game Theory. In fact, Satan is too! Written centuries before the writings of John Nash and Heinz Kohut, the Old Testament Book of Job incorporated theories rooted in Nash’s Equilibrium and Kohut’s Forms and Transformation of Narcissism. Certainly, Satan’s purpose was to transform Job’s narcissism by reducing him to a 10th of his former worth, thereby forcing him to make an alternate choice which was to turn his will against God. In the content narrative of Group (Gang) Stalking, people who report being targeted with electronic physical assault and psychotronic torture have said they “undergo a lifestyle change.” Some suggest the reason for their targeting is to move them into therapy groups where they may receive more social service support and financial grants.

(5) God possesses a sense of entitlement and unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations. When Job was enduring his suffering, God expected him to continue to be loyal and faithful even in the face of these terrible losses. In fact, God expected this of Job. There is no suggestion or implication of reciprocity in the fact that God must answer your prayers if you’re a faithful follower. Likewise, there is a similar pattern occurring with the Targeted Individual. In such cases, a person demonstrating forms of infantile anxieties are exacting punishments against a population of people for what appears to be assuaging the narcissism of the perpetrator. By utilizing advances in technology, the perpetrator creates for himself a counter-phobic object, a device used in a defensive posture against what may very well be phantasmagorical fears (Winnicott, 1971). For what does the Targeted Individual receive in return for his suffering? At least God, at the end of the Book of Job, restored Job’s health, gave him more children, and multiplied his financial status. It is as if the Targeted Individual is being used as a scapegoat (container) for the anger someone else’s feels about his unsolved problems.

(6) God lacks empathy and is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others. That God would enter into a wager with Satan over Job is evidence of his lack of empathy. The fact that God would place Job in the direct line of a firestorm from an evil malevolence clearly speaks of how much he truly cared about Job and Job’s suffering. In fact, God plans his entrances in such a way that they clearly place the other at a distinct disadvantage, leading them to confess to their deficiencies, insecurities, and insignificances. He appears to Moses as a burning bush that literally could lick his ass and burn it with fire. In the Book of Job, he appears as a whirlwind, perhaps a dirt devil that might increase in intensity literally throwing him yards away and killing him. We see something similar with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture. The subjects suffering such torture are made to feel insignificant, inferior, and weak.

Here I listed at least six (6) of the nine criteria to make an official diagnosis of NPD. You need to only confirm at least five (5) for a formal diagnosis.

A Cleansing Baptism or Clandestine From of Femicide?

In the literary analysis of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew the work has been analyzed as the marriage between two willing partners whose final conclusion ends as a form of “baptism” or “cleansing”, which coincidentally can also be analyzed as the path of normal growth which ultimately takes place between to “civilized” people of marriage who often find themselves in conflict with one another and is symbolic to Bram Dijkstra’s Idols of Perversity: Fantasies of feminine evil in the fin de siècle culture. In this post, I make a literary as well as philosophical connection in comparative literature between religious baptism and Dante’s Purgatorio and William Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew and the “baptism” of electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture of Group (Gang) Stalking. That is to say, as “a cleansing experience that wipes clean” the memory, social status, and other blemishes of identity the targeted victim represents to society. Certainly, the transcendental often spoken of as happening in marriage between a man and a woman, and in regard to the analysis of The Taming of The Shrew and which, at least to me, seems always in favor of the male, ruling authority, or controlling power figure. In fact, the entire above referenced literary comparison between the two sources is done with the couples agreed upon consent and intentions toward some type of marriage. I then make a contrasting comparison between Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture and the marriage contract or partnership/friendship that has dissolved between the group stalker and the victim’s intention to render the partnership as dissolved, the group stalker continues some type of arrangement with regard to the partnership. For where would a group stalker be without their intended victim? In other words, a former love interest of the victim, someone familiar to the victim such as a friend or business associate, or even a possibly a perturbed neighbor has suffered a narcissistic blow either by the victim themselves or as a result of the victim’s unintentional actions.

Please keep in mind that in regard to William Shakespeare’s Taming of The Shrew the reference to “supernatural happiness” and “overall happiness” alluded to by academic analysis belonging to “virtuous activities.” That is to say, happiness is not found in prostituting oneself, being highly selfish and narcissistic, or in other such activities that promote impurities such as drunkenness and other lude, wild behaviors such as being outspoken, opinionated, or promiscuous. This concept is directly promoted by institutions of higher learning because it benefits the economy and social welfare of society by promoting shared work responsibilities between committed partners such as paying taxes, buying real estate, and contributing to desired social values. This contributes to the benefits of promoting the shared values within a society (community), a group, by creating cohesive groups rooted in shared values of upstanding lifestyle. It also promotes and ensures the continuity of the growth of families as having children results in most marriage arrangements. All of which is true and, and in fact, should be promoted to young academics in pursuit of knowledge and understanding of virtuous behavior. However, it unwittingly also contributes to the formation of myth-making, the kinds of myths that have been witnessed as religious inquisitions, witch trials, and genocides.

In the Taming of the Shrew, the role of the shrew is acted by Katherine, and she is known for her negative outlook concerning life. She does not believe that there is good in anything and is often in an extremely foul mood. The main reason why she acts in such a manner is because she envies her beautiful and younger sister known as Bianca. She is envious of her younger sister who had many suitors, while she did not have any. Many men wanted to marry Bianca and often ignored Katherine, and most likely it is due to her negative attitude and poor disposition. It is a fact among people that if any man would want to marry Katherine, then it would be the same for Bianca. This is the reason why Katherine is a shrew that needs to be tamed. Enter Petruchio who is in desperate need of a wife and, as it plays out, Petruchio sets his sites on Katherine as her father cannot stand her anymore either and is willing to pay in order to marry her off.

As Petruchio begins to try and tame Katherine he becomes as annoying and harassing as she. But Petruchio understands that in order for him to be successful he must tame her without changing her inner spirit. For to do such a thing would break her original inner identity (her spirit) and this would be considered unethical. Although Shakespeare doesn’t use the word “grooming” he likens the taming to a “tailoring.” We experience these images of “tailoring” when he uses phrases like “Thy gown’s Why, aye. Come, tailor, let us see’st. / O mercy, God! What masquing stuff is here’s / What’s this A sleeve’s Tis like a demi-cannon. / What, up and down, carved like an apple tart’s / Here’s snip and nip and cut and slish and slash, Like to a sensor in a barber’s shop”. It has been analyzed that he seeks to tame Katherine using acceptable ways, and without causing her heartache. And in the course of Petruchio’s taming he encounters many personalities of Katherine, no doubt, as a result of the imposed abuse.

In reading Dante Alighieri’s Purgatorio and the concept of formative virtue in Canto 25, a very interesting idea on how the spirits (Dante calls them shades) materialize upon death. It has to do with an idea of Informative Virtues, a philosophical idea that the regenerative power of the seed creates similar life forms. An example Dante used in this canto was a sea-fungus, when it undertakes the reorganization process of meiosis, the seed takes on the virtue from the generator’s heart. Upon death, the soul takes on an aerial body and will stand either on the River Archeron (to await Hell) or stand on the River Tiber (to await salvation). Thus, upon death, all souls according to their hearts are either damned or saved. The allegory used here recalls Luke 6:43–45 where Jesus taught that good trees produce good fruits and likewise, bad trees will produce bad fruits. (logic)

The connection we can draw is in the sacrament of baptism as a religious ritual and the cleansing transcendental experience rooted in religious commitment and study, if we place this against acts of genocide also a ritualized form of behavior where ritualized acts of “cleansing” are utilized, we can come to a formal understanding of how subtle a device linguistics and semiotics in philosophy can be when these ideas of baptism and cleansing are transformed in the nonvirtuous person’s mind. An idea I have termed “informative nonvirtue” with the intent of turning a person’s will to bend toward the wishes of the controller. Albeit, in the spirit of higher academic learning, the “taming in marriage” as analyzed in Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew is meant to convey the idea that although the trials and tribulations of consecrated marriage are sometimes painful for those who lie under its burdens, burdens that are willfully consented to, those tribulations can yield beautiful results as pain and suffering have the ability to transcend living souls to higher planes of existence. And in that we mean, maturity.

In terms of the phenomenology of Group (Gang) Stalking and group psychopathology where there is neither a contract of agreed formal consent to participate as a “willing participant” or “member” of the Group’s (Gang’s) activities nor a recognized legal ritual that condones such behavior as an acceptable part of societal living, such as we see in the consecration of sacraments of Eucharist and Penance. In this light, there is a burden placed, unwillingly I might add, on the victim which forces him or her to sacrifice their identity and suffer losses of not only the body and mind but of civil liberties as well, Fourth Amendment civil liberties. Here I used Janine Chasseguet-Smirgel’s reference to a movie shown in Paris during the 1970s entitled The Corpse Incinerator and its psychoanalytic connections to genocide. The story is of a criminal pervert necrophile which makes a perfect example to demonstrate the metempsychosis that in all things annihilation does not exist and that things simply “change form.” In the changing of form we can illustrate the victim’s “loss of identity.” The main character in the movie is a crematorium worker who believes how beautiful a thing death is and that it is in death that one is freed from the soul. The body is clearly likened to a “blemish” that the main character in the movie helps to get rid of. He himself will become the murderer of his wife and children because they have “impure blood” in them. We see the use of mysticism to magnify the power of the pervert to remove all “fecal character to transform excrement into gold and to transform digestion — which in the movie is combustion, just like incineration — into a marvelous alchemy freeing the soul from the body which has become nothing more than refuse.” Bela Grunberger (1959), and a contemporary psychoanalyst to Janine Chasseguet-Smirgel, wrote of “digestion as a fragmentation of ingested food and its degradation into less and less differentiated elements, which progressively lose their former peculiarities, and forming finally a homogeneous mass, the fecal bolus.” In this movie, the fetish is combustion/incineration. We can compare the incinerator itself as the main character’s counter-phobic object which acts much like the counter-phobic objects we might see used by many religious individuals and mystics known as amulets and crystals. In this light, we can then theorize the fetish is witnessing the destruction through a “changing of form” such as in the sexual deviance of body inflation fantasies. The counterphobic object, when it comes to the phenomenology of Group (Gang) Stalking, is the mechanical electronic device that offers the perpetrator control over the victim’s body/mind/and outcomes. In the fetish of body inflation fantasies, in particular, those that restrain partners thereby making them immobile, the counter phobic objects would be the rubber suits and air compressors they use to provide “relief” from unconscious phantoms lurking in the shadows of the pervert’s psyche and to which provide the pervert satisfaction in overcoming such phantoms.

The Freudian connections to human sexuality, in particular of those belonging to the anal stage (anility) and resulting psychopathology of the anal-sadistic universe, can be drawn and concluded in both literary readings as one can imagine how distorted beliefs can inform logic and in the following notes gleaned from Dante’s Purgatorio and the Catholic Church’s idea of purging the soul of sins as a realm in the afterlife following the death of an unpure soul and to which the whole idea of penance and punishments is supposed to accomplish. However, penance and punishment, as a form of “cleansing the soul” and the transcendental experience of growth through “marriage” is done between two groups or two individual members of a society consenting to the ritualized agreed-upon behavior.

In making an analysis between the two literary comparisons and considering the phenomenology of Group (Gang) Stalking where there is neither a contract of agreed formal consent to participate as a willing participant or a member in the ritualized activities nor is it neither recognized as a legal religious ritual or even acceptable secular ritual that is permitted by law. So, to allow the behavior of stalking to continue as part of ritualized societal living is an abomination. As such, we see in the consecration of the sacraments of Eucharist and Penance an agreed-upon, acceptable form of ritualized behavior that doesn’t inflict harm on society. In terms of the phenomenology of Group (Gang) Stalking and group psychopathology, there is a burden placed, unwillingly I might add, on the victim which forces him or her to sacrifice their identity and suffer losses of the body and mind through ritualized punishments. Here I used Janine Chasseguet-Smirgel’s reference to a movie shown in Paris during the 1970s entitled The Corpse Incinerator, mentioned above, and its psychoanalytic connections to genocide and other forms of ethnic as well as religious cleansings (Holocausts and Inquisitions).

In further analysis, the idea of formative virtue is explained by Statius. Statius explains the part of the body’s blood that is responsible for sperm production is never used by the body except to create life. They had an understanding of how life-giving blood was shared in the activity of coitus and childbearing, although this particular explanation lacks scientific clarity. Statius explains, that it never enters the veins but rather enters another way. Thus, Virtue Informative, (meiosis process) takes place when this blood enters the “natural vase” of a woman’s womb through recombination of DNA. It is in this vaginal vase where the two blood types intermingle to create one life. Dante describes the female as “passive” and the male as “active.” Freud would later come to use this reasoning of “active” and “passive” gender roles of sexuality in his formulation of an entirely new field of study known as psychoanalysis. And by this “active virtue,” the soul is created. That is, the male is responsible for passing the virtues of his heart to his offspring. No doubt there was an observed understanding of active masculinities, most likely observed in warfare as the male-on-male acts of aggression. Statius explains further, much like a sea-fungus, when the reorganization process takes place in the womb, this power comes from “the powers whose seed it is.” That is, a sea-fungus will regenerate into another sea-fungus, likewise, a heart full of evil virtues will regenerate another full of evil virtues. Like begets like. “Nature is intent on all its members.” This idea is expressed in Luke 6:43–45 when Jesus says “good trees produce good fruits and likewise, bad trees produce bad fruits. Thus, the primal Motor, God, brings life into the soul by breathing intellectual life into it. “For without God, nothing is possible.” This understanding would influence Western thinking for quite some time, providing male patriarchy the power. However, it isn’t until the works of Melanie Klein we come to understand, in psychoanalytic terms, the power of nurture and the maternal vertical influence on the masculine and feminine psyche.

To continue Statius explanation, he says that as a result of this “active virtue”, the three aspects of the soul are created; memory, intelligence, and will. When freed from our earthly bodies; memory, intelligence and will become more active and upon death, the Informative Virtue of the body draws on the air around it to produce a visible aerial body. The spirits (shades) Dante sees in the afterlife are a result of this process. This is the reason Statius gives as to the emancipated soul’s appearance on the Terrace of Gluttony. Interestingly, Peter Bondanella and Julia Conaway Bondanella state that church doctrine supported the idea that after death, the soul remained without anybody until Judgment Day, at which time it would be resurrected as a whole body. Of course, this reasoning is most likely derived from the fact the Bible expresses a more black and white view of salvation. You are either saved or you are not. Purgatory is a completely new philosophical device derived from the writings of an Italian man who lived during the 13th and 14th centuries, Dante. Another connection to the formulation of Purgatory and the Catholic Church’s institution of confession and penance as another ritualized form of behavior and to which has not only been incorporated into Church doctrine but has changed shape over time. The Catholic Church’s awareness, as a reasoning logic, is confession as a form of “talk therapy,” helps cleanse the soul or “purge” the soul of its impurities. It is at this point we can make another connection to the clandestine eavesdropping taking place with regard to my personal form of targeting. Guilty men don’t confess their sins. Well, those guilty men lacking a conscience and who are smart enough to keep quiet. Another aspect to this understanding is that grown men and women, who as young children had their conscience formed and shaped as subjects under this Catholic Church doctrine cannot sleep well at night unless they confess their sins. Those who have achieved a conscious awareness and have become mindful of their actions. This is the idea between my notion of “nonvirtue informative” and virtue informative and where love and respect for God and Jesus prevails and promotes the idea of “supernatural happiness” or “overall happiness” of the individual as analyzed in The Taming of The Shrew.

The Terrace of Lust and The “Purging” Through Electromagnetic Tailoring (aka Grooming) and Targeted Assaults

In Dante’s Purgatorio, when Virgil, Statius, and Dante arrive on the Terrace of Lust, they witness a wall of flames that shoots forth. Flames of fire from the inner wall to the outside wall that lick heat and fire. The canto implies these shooting flames are intermittent, frequent blasts that drive the souls back. As a result, the three must walk closely to the outside wall so as not to be burned. The souls on this terrace are chanting in Latin, “Summoe Deus dlementioe” which means “God of Supreme clemency.” They also shout, “Virum non cognosco” which means “I know not a man.” At the end of the canto an example of chastity is taken from the classical literature of the god Diana who ran to the woods to protect her own chastity through isolation, seclusion as a result of shame, and is attributed to a very feminine psychological element. Diana is the personification of femininity.

In this canto, the connection between the shooting and licking flames that burst forth that “drive the souls back” who committed the sin of Lust in their lifetimes can be compared to Petruchio’s taming of Katherine as well as the electromagnetic frequencies cast in electronic torture and psychotronic torture. This symbolism of “reforming the subject” is recreated and carried out in Group (Gang) Stalking with electromagnetic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture. Of course, on all of Dante’s terraces in his Purgatorio we observer this concept of “grooming” or “reforming the subject”, and as Shakespeare would say it, “a tailoring” through “snip and nip and cut and slash” or subjugation through power and electricity. Hence the chanting phrase, “Summoe Deus Dlementioe” or “God of Supreme clemency.” The God of Supreme forgiveness. We can make this connection between a “Supreme God” and “his followers”, the value in a possessed treasure of a wife as analyzed in The Taming of The Shrew and the power of Despots over the “human trash that makes life in his street part of the world of the unclean.” To which of these three areas do the nonvirtuous activities of Group (Gang) Stalking belong? A Supreme God, the possessed treasure of a wife, or the despot’s power to “transform the human garbage that litters his streets into fucking gold through technological service security surveillance as a paid-for product?”

Some Thoughts on Bruno Bettelheim Symbolic Wounds and The Female Psychopath (Republished)

Transvestism is a type of perversion. A perversion is a psychological strategy. It differs from other mental strategies since that it demands a performance. The overall strategy operates in the same way for males and females. What makes all the difference between the male and female perversions is the social gender stereotype that is bought into the foreground of the enactment. The enactment, or performance, is designed to help the person to survive, moreover to survive with a sense of triumph over the traumas of his or her childhood. The perverse strategy is unconscious. The actor, or protagonist, knows only that he feels compelled to perform the perverse act and that when deterred from doing so he feels desperately anxious, panicky, agitated, crazy, even violent. The protagonist does not know that the performance is designed to master “events” that were once too exciting, too frightening, too mortifying to master in childhood. The performer cannot, dare not, remember those terrible events. Instead, his life is given up to reliving them, albeit in a disguised, symbolic form. An adult, male or female, who is compelled to perform a perverse ritual expends a great deal of energy and devotes a considerable portion of each day and night attempting to master and control emotions and affects that were overwhelming and uncontrollable in childhood. A perversion, for as long as it lasts — a decade or an entire lifetime — is a central preoccupation of the person’s existence. (4) (Photo: Ru Paul)

An anthropological study of an aboriginal tribal village’s religious rituals has uncovered symbolic enactments, staged seductions, in which the ruling male class attempted to deceive the females. This ritual was written about by Bruno Bettelheim in his book Symbolic Wounds. It is a staged deception in performing a coming of age ritual, the religious initiation rite of young boys which thereby transforms them into men. These men attempt to metaphorically steal the woman’s vagina through an act of penile subincision. This surgical procedure marks the underside of the penis with scaring that resembles a woman’s vulva. It has psychoanalytically been viewed as vagina envy. Thus, it has been interpreted as attempting to steal the procreative power of the female. This stealing of the procreative power is an act of established dominance over what psychoanalysts imagine to be the “castrating mother figure.” In men who rape, the resulting act of rape is the side effect of some psychic threat to his power. Once the rape has been completed his psychic state returns to a state of equilibrium until some other “perceived threat“ acts upon it. Thus we see the repetitive cycle of a behavior pattern that cannot be fixed until he relinquishes his delusional fears that dictate complete control. “What psychoanalysis actually reveals is simply that boys attach their first genital affection to those maternal adults who have taken care of them. They develop their first sexual rivalry against the other persons who appear to them as owners of the maternal figure(s).” That is, those subjects (biological females) who have been endowed with the same genital apparatus as the mother.

“I have come to understand that types of behavior that appear to be and that could be interpreted as expressions of the most violent hostility, of “the id in the raw,” are actually the result of frantic efforts by the ego to re-establish it’s (rational) control over a total personality overwhelmed by irrational instinctual forces.” ~Bruno Bettelheim, Symbolic Wounds

Little girls undergo a form of genital attachment to the affection of those maternal adults who have taken care of them as well. This has been theorized about in psychoanalytic theories addressing homosexuality. However, these genital attachments do not necessarily have to manifest as homosexual desire but can manifest as perverse strategies that “deal” with other women in intersubjective relations. Envy and jealousy are found at the roots of these theories as was uncovered in the male tribe members’ vagina envy. The metaphorical stealing of another woman’s sexuality has been seen in acts of men who rape women, in acts of disfigurementclitorectomy, and markings. These types of violent acts are predominantly done by males and have been historically dictated by religious ruling authorities. (1) But since we now know that predatory female psychopathic personalities are distinctly different than that of male psychopaths, it becomes imperative that we understand the social manipulations performed by these females. The female psychopath does not typically control her environment through violent acts of force as a means of quelling her anxieties and fears. Women approach the management of castration fears in a much different way. Hysterical anxiety was a disorder that was predominantly assigned to women. That is, in lateral jealousy in response to a fear of displacement by women living in polygynous societies, such as those of northern Somalia. The wife who fears replacement develops a ritualized mode of behavior which can range in a diverse variety of human behaviors. (2) Some of these behaviors may become morbid and sadistic modes of “dealing” with others in intersubjective relations. Since I’ve learned from other social scientists studying in the field of violence that the female psychopath maintains a high priority of impression management, it is no wonder that female psychopaths are more likely to get away with the antisocial acts they commit. The number one attribute of psychopathy is camouflage. These women are more likely to commit offenses against someone they know, rather than complete strangers. That is, someone they may already have an established intimate relationship with. The top three character traits may be pathological lying, conning and manipulative behavior, antisocial and criminal activity. Since competition is a very common human aspect of everyday living, as it is in many animal species, it makes sense these individuals would want to control their environments in antisocial ways. (3)

Women are caregivers, and may already be well versed in understanding their role in the social hierarchy of established power. Thus, establishing felt security may be an early learned social skill that provides the best method of success. They are, are they not, the guardians for the well-being of their husbands and children. Already groomed for second class status, it is this very status that supports their necessity to, not only utilize the best modes of behavior but find the best avenues that will promote her success.(5) It is, in my opinion, for this reason, women make excellent female intelligence operatives. Whereas men use brute force, women look for subtle angles and avenues that don’t require physical violence utilizing coercive control like sex or the physical attributes of her sexuality. (6) This has nothing to do with mathematical computation. Bees like honey. Honey traps are successful in capturing bees.

When the misfiring of genital attachment manifests in female psychopathy it represents a splitting of the psyche. This psyche splitting has been labeled the paranoid-schizoid position. (7) However, this only addresses one element found at the core of identity. There are many different personality disorders with varying character traits. Although personality disorders are considered part of the paranoid-schizoid position, a diagnosis like Borderline Personality Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and Dissociative Personality Disorder will additionally reveal specific behavioral traits. In any event, the aboriginal tribe that was the focus of Bettelheim’s book clearly demonstrates a paranoid character trait in dealing with their female counterparts in attempts at establishing their power dominance.

When the misfiring of genital attachment manifests in female psychopathy it can manifest itself in one of two primary ways in terms of predominant expression; (1) primary masochistic (sadism against the self) or (2) primary sadistic (sadism against others). When primary masochism manifests itself in identity we see disorders like bulimiaanorexiaself-cuttingtrichotillomania, and the desire of the female to be beaten during acts of sexual intercourse (playing the bottom) in sex and bondage. It has also been postulated that women tend to be more masochistic by nature due to their desire to have children (self-induced pain that may repeat given the number of pregnancies and the self-sacrifice of motherhood. This same scenario of repeating pain is seen in women who enjoy sadomasochistic sex).

When primary sadism manifest itself what we see are acts that use passive-aggressive modes of violence against others. We witness staged seductions, enactments that incorporate pathological lying against another. Acts such as prostitution where the woman acts sexually interested to satisfy male sexual desire. These acts by women use their bodies as props in staged seductions such as entertainment acts of burlesque (exotic dancers). We also witness the conning and manipulation of people for personal gain. Attempts at bolstering one’s superiority by tearing down another with manipulative lies. (8)(9)(10)(11) We witness other modes of antisocial behavior as well that are typically seen in the narcissistic personalities of spoiled teenage cheerleaders who taunt and bully other girls. Except these female personalities are grown, adults. Cruel, callous, and unsympathetic modes of social actions in intersubjectivity relations. When females become envious or jealous over other females’ attributes or achieved successes we witness the public shaming of female personalities over social media regarding their parenting styles. It is almost as if the female psychopath says, “Well if I can’t have what she has, I’m going to destroy her image and reputation.” This enactment can be compared to the aboriginal tribe’s behavior discussed in Symbolic Wounds as the act of stealing the female’s sexuality through ritualistic enactment of penile subincision.(12) Except these psychopathic women aren’t stealing the genital apparatuses of their targets, they are attacking the female’s identity at the core. That is, by attempting to damage their reputations, image, and egos. This is equivalent to the stealing of their procreative power in an act of established dominance, much like rape. It is an attempt to overthrow them. This enactment is done in what psychoanalysts imagine to be an enactment of overthrowing the “castrating mother figure.” (13)

When these female personalities engage in violent fights, they typically do not impose or sustain any real injury. Pulling hair, pushing, shoving, slapping, and scratching with nails in envious or jealous fits of anger. Two of the main reasons female psychopathy may remain well hidden is because one, they are experts at manipulating and conning their male and female counterparts; and two, the injuries imposed rarely cross any criminal lines as the physical injury is minimal. Most people have a tendency to overlook small losses. Especially small losses of bruised egos which culminate in no real property damage. These female personalities may generate conflicts or high conflicts perhaps even an assault but since they are primarily victimizing the people they know, the people they know either tolerate it, get rid of them entirely, or confront the narcissistic psychopath. And since they are really good at impression management these psychopaths are very successful in conning others such as co-workers superiors into believing their lies.

It is my opinion that these female psychopaths go on campaigns to tear down another’s reputation. Social media and cyberbullying campaigns would be their desired mode of attack because it is passive-aggressive. These attacks are more difficult to uncover and many people, no longer wanting to be hassled, may just walk away from their social media platforms or have their accounts deleted. I believe Facebook traced the social media smear campaign of the 2016 election against Donald Trump to a Russian female. I don’t know if the Russian female was a bogus identity or not, but this may help prove my case.

We can interpret further through a reading of Chasseguet-Smirgel’s Creative Perversions and the anal-sadistic universe (sadism) in Chapter 3, Narcissism and Perversion the following quote:

“On the one hand with the help of certain mechanisms he rejects reality and refuses to accept any prohibition; on the other hand, in the same breath he recognizes the danger of reality, takes over the fear of the danger as a pathological symptom, and tries subsequently to divest himself of the fear.” (14)

Big Brother or Black Brother? A psychoanalytic investigation of alliance parturition function and foreclosure and what that might tell us about human psychopathology

‘Big Brother’ Fans Are Accusing the Show of Racism — Has a Black Person Ever Won?

A significant portion of this writing came from Amber Jacobs’ 2007 book, On Matricide: Myth, Psychoanalysis, and the Law of the Mother. New York. Columbia University Press and is listed in the sources below. But first, let me start off with a brief discussion about the psychoanalytic roots of targeting and my personal experience being a targeted individual.

I am a targeted individual (TI). The last time I was sent to a psychic ward, which was on June 14, 2021, the psychiatrist assigned to my case was Dr. Shamilov who explicitly stated to me that “it was not my mother who was doing this to me.” First, I have to go on a bunch of assumptions here. Assuming of course that what Dr. Shamilov was talking about is the gang stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture I am experiencing. And then, assuming that somehow the psychiatric community is involved based on the fact that an authority in the psychiatric community, a medical doctor, knows what my personal case of gang stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture is all about. The next assumption is that this phenomenon is about experimental medical technology that manipulates the human brain or the authorities have uncovered my perpetrators.

Next, in this line of hypothesis, is stating the psychoanalytic truths that uncover the fundamental wrongful intent in the practice of gang stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture. This phenomenon eerily points to the indexical sign of incorporation as the means by which what is desired and envied is appropriated and taken to be one’s own. The psychopathological defense function of incorporation has a myth that is used to better understand its reason, causes, and purpose, like Freud’s Oedipus, in Greek mythology. This myth is known as the incorporation of Metis by Zeus. This myth, similar to Freud’s Oedipus, helps us to understand psychopathology. And it goes like this, Zeus swallows whole the pregnant body of his wife Metis. Then, Zeus and Metis’ fully formed fetus springs forth from the head of Zeus. To understand this myth, we analyze the narrative content of what is happening. I have stated one of the things that is happening is Incorporation. Incorporation of the mother and her subsequent disappearance/destruction form the process by which Zeus establishes his power. With the incorporation/swallowing/consuming of the pregnant mother. Zeus not only achieves the appropriation of the female reproductive capacity together with the “wisdom” of Metis, his wife but also effectively swallows and obliterates the mother-daughter relationship. Here, if we delve further, we uncover that Zeus himself possesses anxieties regarding his own mother. But how can that be? Zeus is the ultimate creator. He doesn’t have a mother and thereby debunks the entire system of an omnipotent fatherly diety and religion itself.

To further analyze, since the mother-daughter relationship has been destroyed with the disappearance/destruction of Metis, the fact that she has been swallowed whole into the belly of Zeus expresses Zeus now has infantilized Metis. Metis has now taken on the position of the fetus inside the male womb/brain. The appropriation gestation achieves the fusion of the mother into the daughter with the final product being Athena. Through his incorporation of Metis, Athena is born the motherless daughter, who will never become a mother herself but will remain a virgin daughter forever: an asexual, aggressive virgin, veiled, armed, synthetic, all artifice, seduction, and defense, a femininity created from the mind of Father Zeus. We can certainly come to understand how this explains some creative perversion of lesbian/transgender sexual/gender roles. But lesbians, nor do transgender people, do not normally pose a threat to the larger social order we live in. However, in the minds of some, unconscious fears surround gay and lesbian sexual orientations and these individuals are cast as phantoms, spirits, ghosts that frighten and threaten to annihilate us.

The myth of Zeus’ parturition functions to foreclose the question of the scar of the navel (belly button)the one indelible mark of the connection to and disconnection from the original maternal body. Athena becomes the precious proof that the father is the prime author of identity. She will represent this grandiose logic/phantasy and devote her work to endorsing and institutionalizing it as law in her court of justice, as dramatized in the Oresteia. Unaware of the story of her own mother, Athena will condemn Clytemnestra and declare that the mother will not be mourned. The murdered mother will signify no loss, and Athena’s culture will collectively deny that there has been any loss at all. It will become a buried loss that cannot be mourned, experienced, or represented. The name of Metis is shrouded in silence along with the eradication of the navel as a symbolic mark of the generative link between offspring and mother. Eradication of Metis via the incorporation defensive function sustains the parthenogenetic phantasy on which Zeus’ order is based. Athena, as Zeus’ perfect abstraction, represents the radical divorce of the patriarchal social symbolic order from its roots to the flesh of the maternal body and the violence committed against the mother. Metis the Titaness is ransacked, raped, pillaged, and eaten. She will then be eradicated from representation in the moment that Zeus’ order of democratic justice is established through his perfect creation: Athena and her court of law.

What are the implied probabilities to this kernel of psychoanalytic Truth that by its very nature represents proof or evidence? The possibilities are vast no doubt with a wide array of interesting case vignettes.

To demonstrate the significance of Zeus’ incorporation for the sake of argument, let’s reiterate Levi-Strauss’ point that in order to understand one myth one needs to explore its relationship to other myths. The Metis myth is matricidal. It inextricably relates to the Oresteia yet is only visible in the latter through the figure of Zeus’ perfect abstract creation, The Court of Law of Athena. Athena’s motherless status functions to secure her royalty to Orestes. In this way, the Oresteian myth conceals within it the story of the incorporation of Metis. If we reread the Oresteia in relation to the myth of Metis, we are able to discover what I consider to be the defensive function of the Oresteian myth. That is to say, the Oresteian myth distorts and reworks the myth of Zeus’ rape and incorporation of Metis in such a complex way that it functions to keep it concealed beneath its manifest content. The Oresteian myth conceals this matricidal myth of Metis as part of the desire of the masculine cultural imaginary that seeks to eradicate the process and the memory of the mother’s exclusion (parturition).

Therefore, in this way, the Orestreian myth effects censorship of the Metis myth for the purpose of consolidating and further sustaining the paternal law of the father. This paternal law depends on the foreclosure of a generative matricide. Yet the myth, like the dream (phantasy), reveals the traces of its censoring process through distortions, blanks, and alterations, which if analyzed properly can lead to the reconstruction of the original censored elements. Rereading the Oresteia in relation to the myth of Metis serves to restore a vital link between these two matricidal myths, whose severance hitherto has resulted in an incomplete analysis of the Oresteian myth and, further, has led to the situation in which matricide becomes a non-concept that cannot deliver its underlying structural law.

What is striking about the myth of Zeus and Metis is its representation of the violent primitive process of oral incorporation as the means by which what is desired and envied is appropriated and taken to be one’s own. To demonstrate the significance of this incorporation we must refer to Abraham and Torok’s distinction between incorporation and introjection. In their essay “Mourning or Melancholia: Introjection Verus Incorporation,” Torok and Abraham identify incorporation as a phantasy and introjection as a process; both are psychic mechanisms that attempt to negotiate the loss of a loved object. In the case of Metis, a loved maternal object.

Big Brother or Black Brother? A Psychoanalytic Investigation Into Human Psychopathology

Entertaining a theoretical dialogue using the incorporation of Metis by Zeus myth, we uncover psychoanalytic clues in this season’s version of Big Brother. In this new season, a new alliance group has been formed known as “The Cook Out.” This new alliance group is comprised primarily of black house guests. This alliance systematically annihilated and voted out all the white male house guests and they are now working on all the white female house guests. This suggests an unconscious defensive function of at least one of the black house guests, the leader running the alliance of “The Cook Out.” We can surmise that because of the actions taken, those actions identify an incorporation phantasy as a psychic defense that attempts to negotiate the loss of something once loved. But what was it that the leader of “The Cook Out” once loved so dear, that they are basing an “all-white expulsion of house guests?” And the myth we use, in psychoanalysis, to uncover the obscured wound is the incorporation of Metis by Zeus myth in Greek mythology. To describe and understand this psychopathology, the “kicking out” defensive function acts like Metis’ parturition function by Zeus to foreclose the scar of the navel (belly-button), the indelible mark of connection to and disconnection from the original maternal body. But the “original maternal body” can also be represented as the intimate space once enjoyed with someone once romantically loved or the intimate space of brotherhood once enjoyed between business associates or gang members.

The psychic mechanisms of introjection and incorporation both pertain to taking something inside, but incorporation is not a process, For Abraham and Torok, it is a phantasy that blocks the possibility of transforming the loss into symbolism. That is to say, transforming the loss into personal symbolism. Incorporation defends against the process of introjection in whole object relations. In the process of introjection, the loss of the loved object is acknowledged and mourned, allowing the loss to be converted into words. It is through the process of introjection that the loss becomes generative. Incorporation, however, is a phantasy that functions to deny the fact that there has been any loss at all: Failing to feed itself on words to be exchanged with others, the mouth absorbs in fantasy all or part of the person — the genuine depository of what is now nameless. The crucial move away from the introjection to incorporation is made when words fail to fill the subject’s void and hence the imaginary thing is inserted in the mouth in their place.

Incorporation is a refusal to introject loss. Incorporation results from, those losses that for some reason cannot be acknowledged as such. In this way, the incorporated object is rendered as unspeakable, unknowable, unable to be mourned or replaced with a substitute. Incorporation is the annulment of figurative language and allows for the fantasmic destruction of the action by means of which metaphors become possible. The phantasy of incorporation functions in the active destruction of representations. Thus, the clues are rendered as active destruction of the metaphorical through incorporation (parturition). Secrecy is imperative for survival and since incorporation is an eminently illegal act it must hide its face even from the ego.

This Is What Community Gang Stalking Represents

Most of the Ancient Near East settlements occurred around this region, Mesopotamia. Near the Nile Delta and Saudi Arabia pictured here is the satellite image taken from orbit by NASA was where early Mesopotamia and where the beginnings of expressed forms of organized systematic language began.

ANCIENT PRIVILEGE WAS A “BRIDE’S PRICE” AND THE LITERARY COMPARISON BETWEEN TWO SHAKESPERIAN COUPLES 

I had written about the ruling elite in the ancient Near East establishing an industry for producing salves in human breeding grounds in which the creation myth was based. The book which discusses the following ancient near east cultures as Sumerian, Akkadian, Egyptian, Judaism is entitled “Woman in the Ancient Near East.” The Egyptians would have been one of the notoriously guilty parties to human breeding grounds for slaves because of the amount of slave labor required to build the pyramids and monuments that would honor pharaoh.

Some information I discovered while reading the above-referenced book “Women in the Ancient Near East” follows here. The contribution Michel Foucault has given us with his works, especially for me in his first volume “The History of Sexuality,” will remain invaluable. The meaning behind Michel Foucault’s work which he originally titled, and some printed books can be found with this title, “The Will to Knowledge” was something I never understood until now:

“The change from childhood to adulthood brought about through puberty indicated an individual’s sexual maturity. This sexual maturity was described with words meaning “to know” and was associated with knowledge and intelligence in the ancient Jewish world. In Jewish culture, this age is believed to occur at the age of 12 as Jesus was said to have been able to speak intelligently with the leaders in the temple. Luke 2:40–52. Therefore, we note chronological intelligence (IQ) with sexual maturity. Words like “yadda” in the Jewish dialect means “knowledge”. In ancient Sumerian “zu”. In ancient Akkadian “idu” and “lamadu”. All words possessing similar meanings “to know” or “to have knowledge”. In the ancient tale of Gilgamesh, Enkidu was said to have been a ‘wild’ creature who only became civilized after he “knew” a kindly woman intimately.”

In ancient Sumerian and Akkadians, the aspects of a woman’s virginity posed legal and financial repercussions. To prove a woman’s sexual maturity, it was prescribed in some medical texts that the body hair of a young girl was required to be included as proof of her virginity. It was recognized a woman was of sexual maturity when she developed breasts and grew pubic hair, and so pubic hair was fitting proof that she was “marriageable.” Fathers of daughters who had been deflowered would be unable to gain a “bride’s price” for a non-virgin. Thereby the father of the deflowered daughter could bring charges against the deflowering agent (man or boy). The hair provided in medical inspection was always believed to belong to a virgin unless otherwise stipulated. But how would they know for sure the young girl had not been violated? Today we perform a forensic analysis of vaginal tissue and scaring sometimes of the inner and outer labials. Pubic hair to prove virginity? It turns out that in most cases it was assumed all adolescent girls were virgins. They took this information for granted unless the girl had been caught in the act of coitus with a man or young boy. So, a medical inspection that proved a young girl’s sexual maturity, a pubic hair, also provided proof of the young girl’s virginity. Thus, all young girls were believed to be virtuous. This perspective must have just made life much easier in ancient Mesopotamia. Don’t you think?

As important a characteristic like virginity was of women in the ancient Near East, the fact the ruling elite controlled and maintained “slave breeding grounds” is a horrid thought. That Egyptian slave women were probably regularly raped and beaten by their slave owners into producing more progeny for the purpose of building monuments and temples is chilling. And this association with Dark Money (and by Dark Money, I mean networked business associations and gangs)and experimental test subjects of the modern era is also chilling.

A Literary Comparison Between Two Shakesperian Couples Reveals The Nature of Gang Stalking, Electronic Targeted Physical Assaults, and Psychotronic Torture

https://global.georgetown.edu/events/natural-and-supernatural-happiness-in-the-taming-of-the-shrew

The video included above, “Natural and Supernatural Happiness in “The Taming of the Shrew” published by Georgetown University, is an excellent literary comparison between two Shakespearian couples in the play.

The video references in the above analysis of “The Taming of the Shrew” describe Petruchio’s actions in taking on the character of the Shrew as initiating a type of “baptism” or “a form of cleansing” for Kate.

In terms of sadistic, and, abnormal psychology, we can make a direct comparison to the “baptism of electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture” in gang stalking and it providing for the perpetrator a “transcendental cleansing experience” for the victim often spoken of as happening in the newlywed’s bed chambers. This is where sadism enters the picture and the study of the Marquis de Sade’s writings, as analyzed by Janine Chasseguet-Smirgel, can uncover the perverse clues. In fact, the entire above-referenced literary comparison between the two couples referenced (Lucentio and Bianca and Petruchio and Kate) is done with the knowledge that the two couples’ willful intentions of marrying one another. In gang stalking, electronic targeted physical assault, and psychotronic torture the “marriage contract” or “partnership” or “association” has dissolved with the male stalker’s maintaining his perverse, willful, intention to some type of “marriage” or “contract” or “partnership” as still being obviously played out. In other words, a former love interest or someone familiar to the victim has suffered a narcissistic injury (ego wound) either by the victim or as a result of the victim’s actions. In the anal-sadistic universe, this perversion sometimes marries the two in perpetuity in their final resting graves. That is to say, murder.

It is also interesting that supernatural happiness and happiness, just in general, belong to maintaining “virtuous activities” and not in “slothfulness” or “prostituting one’s self” thereby compromising one’s purity of self. Gardening is an excellent “virtuous activity” that is beneficial for many both aesthetically and financially if the garden produces food. Not just because it can provide beauty and sustenance but because it is not easily manufactured in mass production. It doesn’t have to be perfect in proportion or aesthetics either as nature doesn’t always get it right, and here I mean “ugly fruit.” However, this belief in “not prostituting one’s self” can be translated as not “contaminating one’s self.” The belief that one is “totally pure” belongs to the personalities that possess high degrees of narcissism. The belief in “self-purity” and “personal cleanliness” was held to a high degree and standard within the German Nazi party of the Third Reich over and beyond the navigation of individual differences is what caused the ethnic cleansing of the German Holocaust. The ethnic cleansing that ensued was an indexical sign to the belief of the importance of “self-purity.” Excessive self-purity, as an indexical sign, also points to the blatant existence of problems in object relations and a personality disorder. That is what community stalking represents.

“Women in the Ancient Near East” by Marten Stol described “virginity” as a valuable commodity and treasured aspect of human existence found in the ancient cultures of the Sumerians and Akkadians (Mesopotamia). “Whores” or women deflowered of their virginity were obviously “less valuable” and would not have been deemed “nubile.” There was an importance placed on the exclusiveness between a man and his wife. An exclusiveness the male did not have to always honor with his wife in the ancient world. Often, men took on the wives of deceased brothers. In modern America, the ancient cultural practice does not exist except in extraordinary groups like Muslims who may have immigrated here, people of the Mormon religion, and others whose cultural practices are similar to the ancient Near Eastern practices.

“The figure moving toward him, an imaginary ghost, condensing and inverting in his psyche, wielding his own aggression towards it, legitimizing and elaborating an argument of “self-defense” against an apparition he has invented in his own mind. This is the psychic defensive function that becomes concealed within a narrative that seeks to thereby legitimize its own authority by advancing personal agendas rooted in unconscious defensive psychic functions as they manifest ghostly apparitions of imaginary phantasms (ghosts) that seize upon his fears.

This ghostly apparition could be the image of a black man, a prostitute, a gay man, a transgender female, a Jehovah Witness, an alcoholic, a homeless man, the mentally ill, or some other marginalized group that suffers oppression or some form of ostracizing. ~Paraphrased from “The Force of Nonviolence” by Judith Butler, pg. 118.

The phrase directed at me, “You were nothing but HIS whore” and “You were nothing but a prostitute” as a demeaning phrase holds the evidence of the perpetrators psychic splitting between the “valuable” and the “non-nubile”, and here I’d like to point out that the woman was way more “non-nubile” (e.g.-ugly) than I ever was” or “the good breast” against the backdrop of the “bad breast.” “Prostitutes” who may“deny” a man the right to access her body may be perceived as belonging to the “bad breast.” And likewise, the nubile breast that exposes herself to the gaze of an already attached, yet available male, is often meet with the same psychic splitting.

‘Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned’ is an idiom that is adapted from a line in William Congreve’s play, The Mourning Bride (1697). The line from which it came is ‘Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, nor hell a fury like a woman scorned.’” Jealousy and envy make men doing horrible things.

Information Regarding My Personal Case of Gang Stalking, Electronic Targeted Physical Assaults, and Psychotronic Torture

Yesterday I saw one of my stalkers’ faces. He stood on the opposite corner of Larry’s Liquor Store as I pulled up to park. He went out of his way to wave to me with his right hand as he held a device in his left hand. He then proceeded to motion with his right hand like he was turning up the volume, at which point I felt the electromagnetic frequency field intensify in my head. It quickly was turned down and the man walked across the street. I didn’t do anything, although I believe that is what this harassment is aimed at doing. It wants to provoke the victim into performing an ill-mannered action. He was an older white male with grey hair. He was between 5ft 8″ and 5ft 10″. He wore a white short-sleeve shirt with a faded yellow stripe in it and light-colored (whitish) pants with work boots. I have more than one of these stalkers and I believe they are a group of older men who work independent contracts in the neighborhood in home repair. But make no doubt this man is somehow connected with my former next-door neighbors who lived at 1225 Indiana avenue who are also connected to a young, heavy-set woman with dark wavy hair, who would drop off a young girl around the age of 7 to the residence. It was this woman who would stand on the steps of my former neighbor’s domicile at 1225 Indiana avenue and shout to me the statement “You were nothing but HIS whore.” This woman I have also witness pull up in front of my house, on my street with a young man who looked like the same man parked on Indiana avenue one day and who was with a thin, dark-haired woman in an orange/red colored van with Pennsylvania plates. He also bears a resemblance to the older man I saw at Larry’s liquor store yesterday. I believe there are two families familiar with one another who possess intimate knowledge about my electronic harassment, targeting, psychotronic torture, and gang stalking.

I would also like to comment on Andrew Moran’s of the University of Dallas rather cavalier and perverted attitude about spousal abuse and the coercive control actions taken on by Petruchio over his wife Kate as a “necessary evil in pursuit of marital happiness.” This belief is psychologically warped.

How Does Female and Male Identity Capital Play Out In Gang Stalking?

Image: Child Beauty Queen (Identity Marker)

Part of female identity capital (sometimes called culture capital) is body size and weight. I believe culture capital is appropriate because traditionally speaking, the wealthy were thin while lower-class women tended to be “full-bodied.” I’d like to go out on a limb here and say, in Hollywood, there are more black, overweight, female actresses than white actresses. Although shallow and insignificant as this may seem, the truth discovered in the pursuit of psychoanalytic study is this. Narcissistic egos can run deep and men and women are narcissistic. To humiliate and demean an Object in your object-relational world by electronically stimulating a person’s brain in an uncontrolled environment, in random attacks, during sleep, and especially during early waking hours leads to the onset of behavioral change is what narcissists do. This is the intrusive element electronic targeted assaults take as a characteristic of stalking. The early morning hours are no longer the hours the target is allowed to work out. The controller/operator has now decided she must not be allowed an avenue to health. Why? Working out provides health benefits such as stress reduction and maintenance, lower blood sugar, lower blood pressure, and heart health. According to the controller/operator, this is a crime that must not be defined as murder because there is no statute of limitations on murder, therefore it must remain ambiguous and hard to define. After all, it is a cultural murder, a murder of female identity capital. When you can’t define the crime, how can you prosecute it for what it truly represents?

“what . . . any inquisition really is: a set of disciplinary practices targeting specific groups, codified in law, organized systematically, enforced by surveillance, exemplified by severity, sustained over time, backed by institutional power, and justified by a vision of the one true path. Considered that way, the Inquisition is more accurately viewed not as a relic, but as a harbinger.”

Gangstalking, electronic targeted physical assaults, and psychotronic torture are a form of derision. The bullying, tyranny, and unfair treatment of marginalized groups are tolerated in some third-world countries like Afghanistan and India, but in the United States of America, it is outlawed. We have stalking laws.

The Coward Hides His Face

The coward hides his face, and exposing the coward’s face to the broader group about the abuse he represents is the power the operator/controller hands over to the victim. I have that power because I am the victim. The difference in “identity status,” to some women, is represented as characteristics such as youth, beautydress size, and wallet size. The paranoid fear that dances around the shadows of someone suffering the mental illness of the paranoid splitting rooted in the castration complex, when a lack of this insider identity is realized as well as the lack of identifiers that would signify status recognition such as youth, beauty, dress size, become the very objects of coveted envy. Coveted envy leads to callous hatred, acts of clandestine violence, and forms in believed narcissistic supremacy. John Steinbeck said it best when he said in poverty his daughter would be envious and in riches, she would be a snob. “Money does not change the sickness, only the symptoms.” Identity capital is a form of currency. All those things we hold dear to us that give us our identity. What are they? Are you the fastest swimmer? Are you the fastest runner? Are you the fastest problem solver? Are you athletic? Are you the most beautiful in your family? What are you better at and who would capitalize the most on making sure you don’t have those skills?

I have a brother-in-law who has all the finest things. He is like this. If, I have hummingbirds visit my yard because I garden and plant flowers. Once he finds out, he must “one-up me.” Everything seems to be a competition. He purchased a trellis and beautiful flowering plant that attracts hummingbirds. At one point, I was using a digital camera to take pictures and I voiced a wish to buy a good camera and become a better photographer. What does he do? Buys a professional camera and goes out of his way to “show it off.” It’s petty but maddening. It would appear he’s the covetous type. He is also tied to my same-sex twin sibling. I call her my Dark Twin.

After I had begun to be electronically targeted with physical electronic assaults that prevented me from doing work. (I am a diabetic and I need to physically move my body to burn blood sugar). My brother-in-law and sister both came to my garden and ripped out everything I planted and threw it away and re-arranged it to produce more food because she said, “You can’t take care of it anymore.” Is this why I’m being electronically tortured? So they can have my garden? He violated my boundaries that day because some of those plants I purchased and cultivated to a bigger size. And now, I find myself targeted. I’m being abused by some unseen force (electro-magnetic) that sends vibrational energy to points located in my body (lower abdomen and head/teeth). I wonder, is he the one who is doing this? Are their accomplices involved? Since the concept of stalking denotes a pattern of repeated, unwanted intrusion by one person into the life of another in a manner that causes distress, disruption, or fear, I am fairly secure in saying I am being stalked. Stalking often employees third-parties in what is called “proxy stalking.” After the recognition of equal rights for women and the prosecution of domestic violence, stalking has become an unacceptable behavior in the Western world. Stalking is a social construct that arises in particular social and cultural contexts.

My next-door neighbors at 1241 Indiana have people from India as either visitors or relatives to their home environment. I’m looking at them as suspects because of the socialcultural, and ethnic differences some Indian men possess in beliefs toward their women. The issues in Afghanistan, following the fall of Kabul surrounding women’s rights, are a perfect example of how oppression works and the cultural capital of identity is promoted and thereby demoting other identities in the process. To describe an example, a man from India or from Afghanistan might promote his “authentic authority” based on his gender, positional of power, masculine identity, and wealth as a man while systematically demoting “inauthentic identities” such as girls, women, the poor, those who helped the Americans during the Afghan war. This is a gendered/status refusal tied to the imaginary symbolics in philosophy and the muting of feminine voices based on gender politics. The female silenced body is rendered in Plato’s cave metahphor.

Take this information back to the beginning of the post, in what I said in the opening. Part of female identity capital (sometimes called culture capital) is body size and weight. I believe culture capital is appropriate because traditionally speaking, the wealthy were thin while lower-class women tended to be “full-bodied.” To torture a woman for this purpose would be to “one down her identity capital.” And as I said, a female’s identity capital is no different than men’s. It is all bound to those identity markers and status symbols, that marks us as the “signified” by “the signifier.” What are your identity and status markers? These are some examples of identity markers; male/female, fat/thin, 30s/40s, white/black, beautiful/unattractive, prim/careless, adorned/unadorned, educated/uneducated, employed/unemployed, father/nonparent, Polish/German, immigrant/citizen, competitive athlete/non-competitive, academic/nonacademic? These are your identity markers and your status markers. How well do you know your enemies?

Additionally, identity markers and status markers are perceptions about ourselves and others that define how we see ourselves and others and what makes us who we are.

In abusive relationships, the abused individual losses internal competency that results in depression, anxiety, suicidal ideations, which may lead to self-destructive behavior patterns. This resulting from long-term abuse of electronic physical assaults and psychotronic torture that leave the targeted subjects less productive than they were before. It then places the targeted subject in a state of debilitating or deteriorated physical condition with feelings of worthlessness, badness (no good), powerlessness, and hopelessness as a result of the targeting. At 53, I should not be identifying with my 88-year-old mother who is debilitated from old age. This is what electronic targeted physical assaults with psychotronic torture accomplishes.

Political operatives with a network of associates directed by their political operatives, with vast amounts of money, to target certain individuals through clandestine investigations to impugn whistle-blowers, journalists, and those seeking to expose government corruption are nothing new to the psychoanalytic theatre stage of deception and seduction. In the book, Dark Money, Jane Mayer spent five years conducting hundreds of interviews-including with several sources within the network-and scoured public records, private papers, and court proceedings in reporting this book. In a taut and utterly convincing narrative, she traces the byzantine trail of the billions of dollars spent by the network and provides vivid portraits of the colorful figures behind the new American oligarchy.

What’s my point? There are over 100,000 American citizens claiming to be the victims of a clandestine targeting operation that gang stalks, eavesdrops, using advanced technology to target and disable them. Who are the ones that will be profiting off of this phenomenon? Investors to the next generation of advancing technologies?

What further compounds the problem? Some of these targeted American citizens come from abusive homes (already with psychiatric issues) and the fact they are being further abused facilitates a narrative that supports the primary political operatives’ goals and agenda. It goes back to what I spoke about at the beginning of this post; killing off identity capital. Part of the identity of the individual is being replaced (behavioral changes). Part of the identity capital of being feminine is most certainly body image, body size, dress size, clothing apparel, dress accessories, youth, and beauty. To attack any one of those identifying characteristics is to commit identity murder or a form of femicide. My psychology is feminine psychology rooted in theories of female development.

My question is this. How are targeted subjects who come from abusive family homes supposed to transcend their abuse in recovery if the abuse is compounded by continued electronic/psychotronic targeted violence? The answer to that question is: It is the political operative who has deemed the targeted subjects as an “unvaluable group” deserving of experimental research and development for profit against a marginalized group of individuals whose lives “don’t really matter.”

Employing Game Theory in Understanding Interactions of Gang Stalking, Electronic Assaults, and Psychotronic Torture

“Life as we know it, and probably throughout the universe, if there is life elsewhere, means the universe, if there is life elsewhere, means Darwinian life. In a Darwinian world, that which survives survives, and the world becomes full of whatever qualities it takes to survive. As Darwinians, we start pessimistically by assuming deep selfishness at the level of natural selection, pitiless indifference to suffering, ruthless attention to individual success at the expense of others. And yet from such warped beginnings, something can come that is in effect, if not necessarily in intention, close to amicable brotherhood and sisterhood. This is the uplifting message of Robert Axelrod’s remarkable book.” 

The above quote was written by Richard Dawkins for the new edition’s Foreward of Axelrod’s book, The Evolution of Cooperation. In evolutionary game theory, it is believed that nature bestows genes that make a species behavior strong and successful while making other’s species behavior weak and unsuccessful and this evolutionary fact is what has given rise to the successful evolution of modern man; Homo Erectus. However, the term “Darwinian life” has become somewhat of an obsolete term. This theory was believed at a time before man acquired the ability to manipulate the genome of a wide range of species by manually introducing “snippets” of foreign genetic material which give rise to “hybrid” organisms. This process is known as CRISPR. It also doesn’t address his ability to introduce stimulus into species environments that cause the species to either flourish or perish, like vast amounts of toxins introduced into the ocean waters during oil spills, and man’s ability to manipulate populations of genetic material (test subjects) in unethical, inhumane ways. Consider the development of Genetically Modified Organisms known as GMOs. 

It appears to me, the phenomenon known as gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture attempts to tilt the stage of what Darwinian called “natural selection” in a very similar way to how man has created genetically modified products. Like the introduction of toxic material into the ocean environment through large-scale toxic spills, a whole chain of events and responses are set in motion. Similarly, I propose the game of electronically targeting individuals through electronic bodily assaults can be understood through game theory and it is similar to the game known as the Prisoner’s Dilemma and expressed through the game of “Hawk and Mouse”. In the “Hawk and Mouse” game, game theory tells us that it is an evolutionary game and that it is also a form of limited warfare if evolutionary stable. That is, even though some organisms may be sacrificed, there will still remain a stable portion of the species within the population. Limited warfare is conflict that doesn’t end in serious injury. In this case, complete and total annihilation of an entire species. Similarly, it appears that man has waged this form of “limited warfare” within the planet’s environment through limited resource depletion known as game seasonsfishing seasonrabbit seasonduck seasondeer seasonetc. In the game theory of gang stalking with electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture it appears to be “limited war” simply because it is being waged on a fractional portion of American citizens within the United States where a portion of the population is sacrificed while the remaining much larger portion remains a stable portion of the population. 

There is another aspect to the game theory we must consider known as Grim Strategy. Grim Strategy is the “dark” form of Prisoner’s Dilemma games. If you’ve been reading my post, you might remember I discussed personality constellations known as the “Dark Triad” or “Dark Tetrad” traits. These personality types have a strong tendency to play “dark games.” We now can come to understand how these “dark” games are played. In a “Dark Tit for Tat” Prisoner’s Dilemma game. The thinking goes like this, “I’ll cooperate with you as long as you always cooperate with me, but if you double-cross me…….” These types of games can be most readily understood when we look at organized crime activities or classic Mafia games. 

So here is ONE of my dilemmas: 

I’m laying in bed and in the early morning hours, very early morning hours right before dawn, ELF (extremely low-level electromagnetic frequency) is turned on inside my body which causes me to feel fatigued and become tired. Now, what is it that my “prison guard(s)” are anticipating in my behavior? I assume they have knowledge of my routine and have anticipated behaviors like; to wake-up, get dressed, and start exercising. Which is what a lot of healthy people choose to do. This is, by the way, a personal decision that differs from a game. 

Now, the purpose of games is to “win,” and the purpose of game theory is to learn how to understand all the angles, so as competitors we play our best strategies and, hopefully, anticipate our opponents’ strategies as well. If game theory exercises are carefully controlled thought experiments that allow a person to guess how the other person is going to act, we might understand the control and manipulation of gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture as a way of controlling our opponent’s thoughts, behaviors, and decisions thereby affording us an upper advantage in winning the game. This would in effect eliminate the problem in game theory where games do not play out as their theory predicts. And only when one has harnessed the power to control his opponents, like we will come to see with grooming and targeting in predatory sexual behavior on college campuses through the use of alcohol and deceptive sexual practices we will make the connection to issues of civil rights violations. This is where individual and personal decisions (freedom to exercise one’s free will) are usurped by another interested in winning the advantage. Grooming and targeting in predatory sexual behavior on college campuses will be discussed later. 

Back to my prison guards who know me and know which responses I am most likely to choose. My guards understand my choices so much so, that this game incorporates the psychological re-grooming of behavior. The question posed is this: “Under what conditions will cooperation emerge in a world of egoists who have no central authority?” 

Now, I have only studied a few lectures on game theory but I believe the answer to this question is the following: 

Conditions of cooperation emerge in a world of egoists with no central authority where and when there is a shared interest do so. If we turn to the theatre of war during World War I where peace periodically broke out all along the front of trench warfare. Both the German and Allied parties agreed to cooperate and not shoot one another. They did not attack each other’s food truck deliveries. They agreed to a cease-fire on all holidays and if they were instructed to shoot by headquarters, they agreed to purposefully miss. To “Shoot where they ain’t” as it were. This was because there existed between both groups a shared interest in survival. 

Now, let’s consider this game looking through the lens of Grim Strategy in a “Dark Tit for Tat” scenario. In this scenario, we take into consideration unlawful gang activity and the games gangs employ to manage their “illegal authority over others.” In classic Mafia game theory, these games were played to manage their “rackets” and “control their business security.” In this scenario, we have what is known as a form of “dark warfare” where two different groups, in conflict with each other, play the “Dark Tit for Tat” game for the purpose of gaining a stake in whatever is being fought over, say a certain cut in the profits or access to a port terminal of entry to smuggle illegal cargo into the United States or in what has historically been seen in the political theatres of war, to win the right over eliminating a political rival and/or re-establishing the ownership of the political opponent territories. 

In Grim Strategy game theory, the grooming and targeting in predatory sexual behavior on college campuses through the use of alcohol and deceptive sexual practices is expressed as masculine entitlement to possess the female object body. Let us consider game theory on college campuses in college games, “party games that groom for sex” and later we will consider this type of game for the purpose for “re-grooming for illness” in what I have a very personal experience with, gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture. 

Understanding the rise of sexual predation on campus, namely those individuals who prey on others to meet their own sexual needs and/or exert a sense of power and control through sexual assault and rape, requires an understanding of dark personality traits and dark game theory. “Predators use coercion and grooming behaviors to lower the defenses of the target and increase their vulnerability to sexual violence. Predators seek to lessen a victim’s ability to advocate for personal safety and disempower them from bringing concerns forward to authorities (Armstrong et al. 2006; Humphrey and Kahn 2000; LaViolette and Barnett 2000; Meloy and Fisher 2005).” This type of grooming also takes place for the annihilation of one’s competitors (“re-grooming for illness”) so the playing field is cast uneven and tilted in which the predators achieve the higher ground and ultimately win bigger shares of the bounty. Since, one of the goals of dehumanization is “status-reducing” interpersonal maltreatments (Barna, 2021), a social-cognitive process termed as “mechanistic dehumanization” in which humans are likened to objects or automata and denied human qualities like warmth, human emotion, and individuality (Haslam, 2006). 

I am not going to reconstruct a basic game diagram of the game played on college campuses between predators to sexual assault offering alcohol to their opponents; fellow female college students. But I am sure you can reconstruct a basic game diagram yourself. Some good questions to ask are, “What do you think is going to happen in this game?” and “What are the dominant strategies of the two players?” A dominant strategy is always the strategy that will make it most likely for each player to win. NASH EQUILIBRIUM is easy to determine in game theory because it’s simply where both parties choose to play their dominant strategy. It may not be immediately obvious where the players will end up and what the outcomes might be, but in the game of gang stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture, the intent is clear. Remember, INTENT is what we need in order to establish MENS REA, the mental state the proves the actors acting with intention to harm and determine whether or not a crime has been committed. 

In a game aimed toward the “grooming for the annihilation of your competitor,” I have come to call “grooming for illness” we can see how becoming intimately versed in your opponent’s behavior allows for you to set up the scenario of the prisoner’s dilemma that incorporates a Grimm Strategy; early morning extremely low electronic frequency stimulation (ELF). I use the play on the word Grimm to refer to Grimm’s fairytales and the association made with unconscious fantasies and the relational world in object relations theory. This is a game that is repetitively played over and over again in what is known as a Repeated Prisoner’s Dilemma. The perpetrator, under a veil of secrecy in which identity cannot be decerned, speaks to me through a mode of physical assault where language and speech have fallen away and has been rendered in the form of representations, symbolism, and metaphor. That is the phallic power of the possessed electronic weapon that reigns over me with intentions of a Grimm strategic purpose. In this game, both opponents arrived at what is known in game theory as the Nash Equilibrium. Both of us are playing our dominant strategy. It is in my best interest not to move out of my home? Although this scenario may not be in my best interest, there is no guarantee that the electronic targeting will not follow me. If I do choose to move out, and the electronic targeting follows me, will I be worse off? Or is it more likely that if I move out, the person electronically targeting me will stop their incessant punishments and let me go? How am I to know what my best strategy is? While I value independence and cooperation which is played out in the goal of interdependence, I am allowing a form of abuse to continue which I absolutely do not support. We can pose a simple question: When should a person cooperate, and when should a person be selfish, in an ongoing interaction with another person? Should a friend keep providing favors to another friend who never reciprocates? Should a person continue to provide another with continued cooperation in the face of clear and present hostile abuse which is taking place against them? Should a business provide prompt service to another business that is about to be bankrupt? How intensely should the United States try to punish the Soviet Union for a particular hostile act, and what pattern of behavior can the United States use to best elicit cooperative behavior from the Soviet Union? All of these are really good questions to ask when we discuss interpersonal relations, intersubjectivity, and the decisions made when playing political and social games. 

There is a difference between a decision and a game. In a decisionI make a choice to do something without any regard for another person (this makes a clear representation of my independent choice and what the constitution grants as civil rights). In a gametwo or more players choose what to do based on what they think the other players are going to do. As such, a game always has a strategy. What should I do given what you think I will do? And what should I do given what I think you will do given what you think I will do? This can become very abstract very quickly. This is the game of gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture except it is being played on a very unlevel playing field where the “fairness” of the game is tilted ONLY to the perpetrators or winning opponents’ side of the game, thereby giving him the upper advantage. 

So, to be asked by a police officer, “Why don’t you move out of your home?” makes me very suspicious of the intentions of the officer because my position cannot be reduced to such black and white strategies; “to stay” or “to go.” My position is not as concrete as such because there are deeper abstract positions and alternate strategies to consider because there are alternate players in this game who pose a clear and present danger to the rest of society. That is to say, a whole range of alternative propositions exist where the identities of some of the other players are not known and therefore, what they will do cannot be known with any level of certainty creating an even greater level of abstraction in the game. Typically, these are the types of abstractions played in espionage games where subterfuge is a predominant skillset played with the sole object of winning. 

In my position as a Targeted Individual, there exist persons with deep selfishness, pitiless indifference to suffering, and ruthless attention to individual success at the expense of others. If you remember from the opening quote to this essay by Richard Dawkins, he called this position warped. 

In a decisionI make a choice to do something without any regard for another person. In my case, to choose to get up and exercise before I go to work and eat tofu and vegetables for lunch. This freedom has been taken away, I no longer have the choice to awake and perform physical exercise in pursuit of health and well-being. This represents a violation of independence and what the constitution grants as civil liberties. Now, I have been thrown into a game, as an unwilling opponent, by another party to play as a competitor, in a very real, very tilted, unfair game that offers ONLY to the other opponent advantages over my body and mind (psychotronic torture). 

Now, if we return to the beginning of the essay where evolutionary game theory is defined as the belief that nature bestows genes that make a species behavior strong and successful while making other’s species behavior weak and unsuccessful, we can come to an understanding of why terms like Darwin’s “survival of the fittest” has become obsolete in light of the phenomenon of electronic targeting and psychotronic torture which seeks to impose a form of illegal control over a fractional portion of the American population. 

Finally, to conclude, professor Jay R. Corrigan at Kenyon University tells us in economics there are some Prisoner’s Dilemmas known as Trade Wars. “For example, tariffs are placed on imports in any given country as that country’s Dominant Strategy regardless of what other countries are doing. That’s because tariffs have the potential to boost domestic firms’ sales at the expense of their foreign competitors. In this game, the Nash Equilibrium is where all countries play that dominant strategy. But economists are quick to tell you this is not a good outcome because it limits the gains from trade. When you focus on what you are best at, and I focus on what I am best at, and we trade with one another we are both made better off. Tariffs and other trade barriers mean we devote fewer resources to the things we are best at doing, making us poorer in the long run (Anczewska, Roszczynska-Michta, Waszkiewicz, Charzynska, Czabala, 2021).

DEGENERATE CRIMINALS: Analyzing the History of Penology and The Science and Art of Punishment and Torture

When innocent people are punished in a mass global service security surveillance panopticon. A long read.

An illustration of a mysterious man in the Iron Mask in his cell.

A penitentiary in Denmark (Vridsloselille- with a slash through the “o”) operated as a Pennsylvania-model institution with strict solitary confinement from 1859 to the early 1930s. Throughout the period, this prison experienced extensive problems with inmate mental health, and as the discipline of psychiatry developed, mental disorders were given new names and old diseases disappeared. This is what happened to the diagnosis of “hysteria,” but this is not my point. The advent and manifestation of electronic targeted assaults de nouveau is a form of service security surveillance that capitalizes on the science and art of punishment. That is, it is similar to the state’s own technological apparatus of power and control which Michel Foucault wrote about in the deployment of control during the 19th century. This is crucial for the understanding of how damaging electronic regimens currently being deployed on U.S. citizens are to the individual. Similar to the damaging psychological effects of the technique of punishment of solitary confinement which prison authorities were willing to acknowledge but downplay, so too are the detrimental side effects of electronic targeting assaults. During the penial period between 1859 and 1930s, a number of psychiatrists located the causes of inmate mental disorders as belonging to biological dispositional traits of inmates rather than situational factors, and in doing so they downplayed the power of the prison context and offered “biological degeneration” among criminals as an alternative explanation (Scharff, 2008). This historical evidence resides on a linear parallel corollary to the long-term sequelae of gang stalking and electronic targeted assaults also called psychotronic torture (Sheridan, James, & Roth, 2020). Those in possession of the state’s technological apparatus of power may, and in all probability, already have downplayed the side effects of the assaults and blame the victims as the ones being responsible for their own sickness and “biological degeneration” in a phenomenon known as victim-blaming. Thereby eluding any responsibility for the role, they played in creating and/or worsening the health problems of the inmate in the first place.

We might begin by acknowledging that the practice of solitary confinement possesses damaging side effects (Scharff Smith, 2008). We know this from historical evidence. We now can make a comparison to the sequelae of gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture. We can make a comparison and even a supposition that just like the discipline of psychiatry, the discipline and art of punishment of the 19th century has reemerged de nouveau with new technological ways in which the art of punishment emerged in the science of advancing technology, which supposedly has arrived at developing “better” approaches that are more “humanely suited” for inmate and patient care and treatment. When mental disorders were given new names, and old diseases disappeared, we witnessed the historical evolution of the practice of modern medicine. So too, old technologies disappeared while new technologies emerge de nouveau. One of the sequelae of long-term gang stalking and electronic targeted assaults, also called psychotronic torture, is lifestyle changes belonging to the electronically targeted individual (Sheridan, James, & Roth, 2020).

Peter Scharff Smith, who wrote “When the Innocent Are Punished: The Children of Imprisoned Parents,” speaks specifically in his book about the children of incarcerated parents, but this applies specifically to electronically targeted women with dependent children because their children and families are made to suffer in silence. These children suffer, as a consequence of the electronic targeting and psychotronic assaults and torture and become the invisible victims in this invisible phenomenon of electronic targeting and, similarly to the large degree of inattention from policymakers, electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture remains invisible as well (Jardine, 2017). How has this topic not been addressed by our policymakers? Although these women are not incarcerated criminals, they are treated as such, through new evolving technologies where the mass deployment of a new technological power end up in the hands of everyday citizens and organized crime syndicates who utilize systematic and systemic forms of discrimination and mechanistic dehumanization of people (Haslam, 2007; Christoff, 2014). I have come to call gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture as a “family-corporate-political conglomerate” business practices belonging to organized crime (the mob family) and gang-like entities that implicates corporate technology companies and service security surveillance companies (Google, cellphone services providers, GPS navigation systems, etc). The service security surveillance industry is important to people like the federal government and its law enforcement agencies as well as local law enforcement and private investigators. I have termed it this phrase because all three work in unison with one another to advance their personal agendas and promote their business practices and profits which include the business economy of hi-tech, thereby supporting a form of the military-industrial complex and service security surveillance industry (Simonson, Morooka, Xiong, & Bedsole, 2019; Wang & Tucker, 2017; Humphreys, 2011; Elmer, 2003). Whoever said the mob is dead, was wrong. One of the biggest areas of American business development is in the technology industry and part of that business is service security surveillance! These new technologies are first developed for the U.S. Department of Defense through government contracts that are awarded to certain tech companies and businesses. New innovative products are then distributed to the different branches of the military and to military personal who service the military-industrial complex. These new developments are then systematically deployed and distributed as commodities which are either purchased and sold to those who can afford to buy them, or stolen from the government or other consumers. Think of the military’s use of high-powered antennas and other devices that jam cell and Wi-Fi signals, as well as the deployment of satellites that are used in GPS tracking including home security surveillance systems with camera surveillance that may take advantage of satellite technology that feed real-time images of a wealthy businessmen’s home while they are vacationing out of the country to his laptop or cellphone. This is what we are looking at when we talk about gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture. The real-time tracking and surveillance via electronic platforms that utilize electronic devices such as computers and hand-held mobile devices which are tethered to biological human implants. Google plays a very integral part in this type of tracking through Google Earth and the Google Streetview Car who, not only collects addresses and streetview images, but also captures IP address information that gets associated with each address captured so that Google knows who they are interacting with. There are other areas of Google surveillance like Google Play Services that may be part of your cell phone technology.

We live in a world where the killing of others is justified if certain conditions are met (Butler, 2021). Terminal illness, abortion, the death penalty, and war waged between countries are a few examples. When dehumanization of others becomes part of a political philosophy, a business practice, or a person’s personal ideology, violence will follow close behind it (Butler, 2021). Businessmen are more likely to possess the character traits of the Dark Triad and the Dark Tetrad and, although I have no journal research to prove it, I have government statistics that tell us our military is producing extremists who go on to form extremist groups like the OathKeepers (ABC News, 2021). Groups that organized themselves and who have recently stormed the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Since mechanistic dehumanization is the behavior that renders human subjects as Objects to be manipulated and exploited, that is, as automata to be used as a means to an end in order to achieve one’s goals, inhumane treatments, and unethical behaviors will inevitably be the by-product of certain ideological practices (Butler, 2021; Christoff, 2014). They’re not just torturing me, they are torturing those people close to me because they are an extension of me. This has been a long-known mafia technique that is also utilized by not only international gangs but may be utilized by neighborhood gangs as well.

The philosophical ideology behind gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture lies very close to the ideology of the modern penitentiary, where “degenerate criminals” were incarcerated in cages. Except for the prison or cage of electronic targeting and psychotronic torture is an electronic prison from which one can’t readily escape. As a result of this targeted persecution, it is not surprising that serious health problems arise as a result of it. In fact, like the Pennsylvania prison model, mental health problems increase in individuals who lived under its harsh conditions. Similarly, individuals living under the tyranny of gang stalking, electronic assaults, and endure psychotronic torture where isolation and alienation may be reinforced, reproduced, or made worse, the brutality in the way in which the deployment of these systematic and systemic mechanistic dehumanizations occur makes living life even more difficult, and, as a result, the technique in this particular science and art of punishment takes a toll on individual empowerment which it seeks to diminish, control, and ultimately take away. This is the exact art and science of the Pennsylvania prison model of the 19th century. In fact, inmates were forced to wear a mask and iron chains while in their cells, which made life even more uncomfortable and unbearable. Similarly, the use of electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture yield the same side effects other methods in behavioral control produce (Van Brunt, Murphy, Pescara-Kovach & Crance, 2019).

It is my theory the part of this technology is similar to the scope of cybersecurity with regard to surveillance and identity as a conceptual framework and a formal model of operation for the social sorting of individuals through mutual monitoring (Wang & Tucker, 2017). In this light, we might also consider that electronic grooming may be a part of the deployment of this technology. Similar to how male college students groom females for sexual behavior through the use of illicit substances like drugs and alcohol (Van Brunt, B., Murphy, A., Pescara-Kovach, L., & Crance, G.L., 2019). Since one of the side effects of long-term gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture is lifestyle changes or behavior modifications. One of the scopes of gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture is for the purpose of sorting individuals based on their identity to other similar or like people. In fact, we might consider the way in which Targeted Individuals have formed social groups in identification with one another, as tortured souls of this technology is a means for gaining support. This certainly demonstrates how power and control have operated in the lives of those targeted by eliciting new behaviors. It has been stated to me time and time again, “You have to find your tribe.” In fact, targeted individuals will instruct other TIs to make sure they get out of the house, that one place that seems to be the place where they turn on these incessant technologies. I believe these people providing these suggestions to their family members, may be involved in the targeting or have knowledge of how it’s being carried out.

We might consider how the Division of Motor Vehicles utilizes a surveillance system that classifies behaviors by attributes. A system such as this may be composed of components like EntityObservable Behavior, Attributes, Identity. In the DMV’s database, the following components are used:

Entity = cars

Observable Behavior = The registration mark, its time of arrival and departure time

Attributes = Duration of stay above a particular time allotment

Identity = Registration Marks.

In the de nouveau panopticon of electronic digital service security surveillance, a biological implant identifies the individual in a similar fashion to the tags on a motor vehicle via the service security surveillance of satellite technology (GPS). In this theorized panopticon of global digital service security surveillance, say for a penal colony, the system will classify behaviors by attributes. A system may be composed of components like:

Entity = Inmates

Observable Behavior = Infractions accumulated while incarcerated

Attributes1 = History of criminal charges

Attributes2 = time of arrival and expected time of departure (lenght of incarceration)

Identity = Prison ID Number

Penal institutions and penal colonies already have a type of service security surveillance system in place but it is not tethered to the inmate for purposes of acquiring points of authenticating one’s identity for security purposes or for the delivering of “punishments” for infractions or to cognitively disable them should the inmate become violent. However, the concept of generating identifiers with wireless signal transmissions via biological human implants and satellite-like tracking might serve state interests for a mass global panopticon used for the accumulation of evidence for future criminal investigations, complete with time stamps and locations. I don’t believe this form of treatment would be allowed simply because of the possibility of arbitrary electronic assaults, thereby making the person’s life difficult by compounding it with even more daily harassment as well as violations of a person’s 4th Amendment Rights. Criminals who turn violent in penal colonies have historically been assaulted with teasers, physically beaten to be taken down, or shot with a firearm.

There have quite successful modern-day neurological brain implants that help to control diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, and mood disorders (Chung, 2019; Mayoclinic.org, 2021; John Hopkins Medicine, 2021; Epilepsy.com, 2021). But I believe any neurological implant that controls human aggression, and thereby human violence arbitrary through the delivery of remote electromagnetic signals would be unethical, inhumane, and very controversial because human aggression is an important aspect of one’s autonomy and self-preservation. In my opinion, it would be cruel, inhumane, and unjust especially if it is being placed in vulnerable populations like women, children, and the elderly. While human aggression is not the same as violence, one does need to retain the possibility to act aggressively if one is expected to survive. Behavior deemed “violent behavior” is usually dealt with through medication and/or Dialectical Behavioral Thought Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Thought Therapy or at its extreme, incarceration in a prison or psychiatric hospital.

It is my theory that part of the phenomenon known as gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture is part of a sinister plot controlled by the “family-corporate-political conglomerate” business of organized crime or it may be part of clandestine, inhumane, unethical research investigating new forms of advancing technologies that will benefit the state and the future of the biopolitical.” Technologies that will be deemed “new” and emerge de nouveau. The purpose of this technology is the acquisition of massive forms of data containing various identifiers which may help classify and sort human populations into groups, perhaps even groom them electronically from a distance. Possibly involved in these groups are stigmatized individuals like drug addicts, alcoholicsprostitutessexual pervertsdegenerate criminalsextremists who possess extremist ideologies. Technologies that do not take into account the unanalyzed fantasies of evil surrounding maternal fear and the mandatory evacuation of feminine sexuality. Unanalyzed fears that manifest and are reproduced through modes of mechanistic dehumanization (Cohn, 1987).

Judith Butler discusses Foucault and Fanon on the War Logics of Race in her new book The Force of Nonviolence: An Ethico-Political Bind. She writes,

“In the final chapter of his 1976 lecture course “Society Must Be Defended,” Foucault elaborates on the emergence of the biopolitical field in the 19th century, there we find that “the biopolitical” describes the operation of power over humans as living beings. Distinct from sovereign power, biopolitics, or biopower, appears to be a distinctively European formation. It operates through various technologies and methods for managing both life and death. For Foucault, this is a distinct kind of power, inasmuch as it is exercised over humans by virtue of their status as living beings — sometimes he calls the living status a “biological” status, though he does not tell us which version of biological science he has in mind. Foucault describes the biopolitical as a regulatory power to “make live” or to “let die” distinct populations, distinguished from sovereign power to “make die” or to “let live.

As in many instances in Foucault’s work, power acts, but not from a sovereign center: rather, there are multiple agencies of power operating in a post-sovereign context to manage populations as living creatures, to manage their lives, to make them live or let them die. This form of biopower regulates, among other things, the very livability of life, determining the relative life potentials of populations. This sort of power is documented in morality and natality rates that indicate forms of racism that belong to biopolitics. It emerges as well in forms of pronatalism and “pro-life” positions that regularly privilege some sorts of life, or living tissue (e.g., the fetus), over others (e.g., teenage or adult women). Thus, the “pro-life” positions is committed to inequality, and in that way continues and intensifies the social inequality of women and the differential grievability of life (Butler, 2021).”

That is to say, those who lives are valued and “grievable” and those whose lives are “ungrievable.”

The Social Psychology of Dehumanizing Attitudes and Behaviors: Theoretical evidence to explain gang stalking and electronic targeted assaults

The maze, thus, seems to symbolize our human limited perspective, our entanglement in the world of the senses and desires, our getting lost, taking the “wrong” path, occasionally feeling lost and desperate. The labyrinth would stand for the spiritual path of circling the Centre. Neither, it seems, can exist without the other. Spiritual heights will not be reached without the entanglements of the flesh.

“From within, the view is extremely restricted and confusing, while from above one discovers a supreme artistry and order.”

This paper explains through a psycho-social lens how individuals can be used as third-party proxies in the phenomenon known as gang stalking and electronic targeted assault. By analyzing the social-cognitive process known as “mechanistic dehumanization” in addition to a possessed form of sadism known as “everyday sadism” as part of a new personality profile known as the “Dark Tetrad.”

The social psychology of dehumanizing attitudes and behaviors towards others is rooted in culturally determined and learned beliefs surrounding another’s individual identity. Some dehumanizing behavior is displayed as disrespect, condescension, and neglect toward others (Christoff, 2014). There are several negative consequences associated with dehumanization and this paper address theoretical social-psychological aspects in research-based evidence of what has been termed everyday sadism and everyday dehumanizations which are contributing to the phenomenon of gang stalking and electronic targeted assaults.

Dehumanization was primarily believed to be part of extreme ethnic or racial intergroup conflict. New research evidence has brought to light this is no longer necessary for dehumanization to occur. Similar to everyday sadism, dehumanization can occur as part of everyday practice based on one’s personality profile (Buckels, Jones, & Paulhus, 2013). That is to say, dehumanization appears to be an everyday social phenomenon rooted in everyday social-cognitive processes of some human beings (Haslam, 2006). Since there are two ways dehumanization can occur, first the denied human characteristics thereby in essence grouping certain individuals with animals, also called “animalistic dehumanization.” The second social-cognitive process is termed “mechanistic dehumanization” in which humans are likened to objects or automata and denied human qualities like warmth, human emotion, and individuality (Haslam, 2006). My personal experiences in dealing with others have found a large portion of evidence in my social environment when opinions deviate from the majority rule and the majority rule is incapable of navigating the difference perceived. As a result, this blocked or diked human relatedness causes a second social-cognitive phenomenon known as “mechanistic dehumanization” and is extensively discussed as being part of the technology of advancing medicine and sexual objectification in which people are perceived as inert and instrumental tools, as a means to an end in advancing one’s goals and interests of their own.

Often perceived as “mild dehumanization” it is often considered an innocent and inconsequential part of behavioral patterns. However, the evidence does not support this ideology of it being an innocent by-product of human interaction. Mild dehumanization that appears subtle, innocent, and inconsequential can range from subtle forms of disrespect, condescension, neglect, social ostracism, and other relational slights. Gangstalking and electronic targeted assaults may be perceived by its perpetrators as a form of innocent, inconsequential, “mild dehumanization” but it goes beyond mild and crosses over to high conflict physical assaults.

Overwhelming evidence tells us dehumanization of others can lead to long-term psychological sequelae (Sheridan, James, & Roth, 2020). Research also tells us dehumanization of others can lead to increased aggressive social behavior such as bullying as well as increased forms of anti-sociality such as hostile avoidance and social rejection. These behaviors are then accompanied by attitudes of reduced human worth by those who are being targeted. They are therefore judged less worthy of protection from harm.

Everyday interpersonal maltreatments can leave its victims feeling degraded, invalidated, or demoralized. There has been extensive research into dehumanization’s negative consequences. When people are mechanistically dehumanized, as when people are gang stalked and electronically targeted with assaults or sexually assaulted and beaten, they are being used as objects or automata, containers for violent aggression and advancing human progress. They can enter into “cognitively deconstructed” states that become emotionally numbing, accompanied by reduced clarity of thought, and cognitive inflexibility, with an absence of meaningful exchange. Experiencing this form of dehumanization leads to pervasive feelings of sadness and anger challenging one’s coping skills. Since one of the goals of dehumanization is “status-reducing” interpersonal maltreatments such as being treated as incompetent, fat, ugly, lower-class, embarrassing, unintelligent, unsophisticated in the goal of degrading another’s image. This in turn can lead to feelings of shame and guilt by those being targeted.

As such, dehumanizing maltreatments eventually lead to one’s detrimental well-being. Psychological well-being requires basic psycho-social needs to be met. These include autonomy, competence, and human relatedness as well as a standard for the continuation of self-care. Dehumanizing maltreatments lead to impaired ability to satisfy individual needs and directly contribute to depression, anxiety, and stress-related disorders such as alcohol use disorder. As such, dehumanization maltreatments are not considered “innocent” or “inconsequential” by-products of social interaction as a “social phenomenon” common to human communication. Dehumanization maltreatment poses a real hazard to other’s well-being as well as their cognitive psycho-social development. Dehumanization maltreatment leads to depression. Depression can lead to suicide. It can also lead to anxiety and anxiety can lead to anxiety-related disorders.

Since an aspect to dehumanizing maltreatment is the character trait known as sadism, a research study investigating the phenomenon of what has been termed “everyday sadism” to reveal a new personality configuration termed the “Dark Tetrad” of personality. Originally termed the “Dark Triad” which refers to the personality configuration composed of three character traits found within a specific personality type; Machiavellianism, narcissism, and psychopathy. The new Dark Tetrad includes four traits instead of three; Machiavellianismsadism, narcissism, and psychopathy. The researchers conducted a study investigating individual’s willingness to take part in a bug-killing paradigm. Sadists volunteered at greater rates than did non-sadists. In the second study, researchers investigated the willingness of individuals to harm an innocent victim. When aggression was easy, sadism and Dark Triad measures predicted unprovoked aggression. However, only sadists were willing to work for the opportunity to hurt an innocent person. In both studies, sadism emerged as an independent predictor of behavior reflecting an appetite for cruelty. Together, these findings support the construct validity of everyday sadism and its incorporation into a new personality paradigm (Buckels, Jones, & Paulhus, 2013).

“The task thus becomes to track the patterned ways that violence seeks to name as violent that which resists it, and how the violent character of a legal regime is exposed as it forcibly quells dissent, punishes workers who refuse the exploitative terms of contracts, sequesters minorities, imprisons its critics, and expels its potential rivals.”
