The Violence of Self-Defense: Part II Analyzing Theory and Legal Studies

“Whenever and to whatever extent there is room for the use of arms or physical force or brute force, there and to the extent is there so much less possibility for soul force.” ~Mahatma Gandhi

To help understand the force of violence being imposed upon U.S. citizens through the use of gang stalking and electronic targeted assault, I would like to include some philosophical thoughts from Judith Butler. Butler tells us moral philosophers and theologians (two of my favorite topics of discourse) have asked:

“What grounds the claims that killing is wrong, and that the interdiction against killing justified? The usual way of handling this question is to ask whether that interdiction, commandment, or prohibition is absolute; whether it has a theological or other conventional status; whether it is a matter of law or one of morality. It is also accompanied by further questions, namely, whether there are bona fide exceptions to such an interdiction, when injuring or even killing is justified (Butler, 2020).”

Self-defense is one of the topics of debate that is usually arrived upon after asking the previously posed question. However, the term “self-defense” is a highly ambiguous term. After all, “self-defense” is usually part of militaristic modes of foreign policy that justify every attack as being part of “self-defense.” Even contemporary U.S. law makes concessions for preemptive killing. Every individual is part of a “broader sense of self.” The people who make up this “broader sense of self” are your loved ones; spousechildeven animals, and other people considered close to you. You have those that are close to you and who belong to this “broader sense of self,” and you also have those further away from you, at a distance from yourself and your loved ones. In the name of protection, a person may commit violence, even murder in the protection of these loved ones. But the law also sets up the distinction for those at a distance from you whom you may not violate or commit murder against. Judith Butler poses the following questions:

“So, what and who is part of the self that you are, and what relations are included under the rubric of the “self” to be defended? Are we more ethically obligated to preserve the lives of those who are close to us than to stand for the lives of those who are considered far away, whether in a geographical, economic, or cultural sense (Butler, 2020)?”

A topic of debate that is usually arrived upon after asking these questions involves “difference.” Racial and ethnic differences, cultural differences (presented as lifestyle choices)religious differenceshomosexuality, and transgender sexuality as difference. I imagine a new group will now emerge as the cannabis-loving group who will soon be stigmatized for their participation in legalized recreational marijuana use if it was not a previously known lifestyle choice. For it is perceived that “potheads” are not part of this egalitarian culture.

If I defend myself and those who are considered part of myself (or proximate enough so that I know and love them), then this “self” that I am, is relational. Yes? Of course, it is, but such relations, considered as belonging to the region of the self, are limited to those who are proximate and similar. One may be justified in using violence to defend those who belong to the region or regime of the self (Butler, 2020). However, the ideology arrived at here may be similar to a U.S. “militaristic mode of foreign policy that justifies violence” in “self-defense” but are also part of the violence belonging to gangs, the drug trade, and mafias which manifested itself as violence descended on the Capitol on January 6, 2021. That is to say, it belongs to part of an imaginary where delusions are bred. A group of men who hate women seek to protect their right to progeny which may be part of their actual biological lineage or part of metaphorical intelligence (e.g., the masculine intelligence that excludes women and other groups as intellectuals). The most frightening wars are the imaginary wars waged in the mind where no real threats to harm ever even existed (Dijkstra, 1986; Mitchell, 2000). It seems to me that gang stalking with electronic targeted assaults and organized crime syndicates like the Mob are part of a human phenomenon rooted in delusional beliefs. Delusional beliefs about one’s self and ‘Other’ which gave rise to phenomenon like the Salem Witch Trials. These groups expand claims of “self-defense,” violence they believe to be worthy protection from future violence: that is a violence done to others so that it is not done to one’s own (Butler, 2020)And what emerges out of this logic sometimes manifests as delusions held by extremist groups, groups whose perceived rights to entitlements and privileges, otherwise not given freely, are a violation to “the self.” This prohibition is now imposed on the other group perceived to be “privileged,” and these privileges will be preemptively taken away (ABC News, Examining Extremism in the Military, April 28, 2021). “Harming,” in this context, is to be perceived as the social behaviors that inflict adverse outcomes or adverse environmental conditions upon a social order that either considers itself to be predominantly egalitarian or is perceived as being egalitarian. The same perceived “harm” is presented in the form of social or cultural differences that target gay and ethnic communities.

But wait.

If smoking marijuana is a lifestyle or cultural choice, and if smoking marijuana is self-harming, why has it been legalized? If drinking alcohol is believed to be self-harming, why is alcohol consumption even allowed? And are these “self-harming” behaviors a component or by-product of the new phenomenon of electronic targeted assaults? Have new state legalizations surrounding cannabis use opened up an even broader avenue for which the state’s technological apparatus of control may be more broadly deployed through clandestinely electronic assaults? Maybe not, but how is one to find out if one does not fully even understand the phenomenon of gang stalking and electronic targeted assaults? Since clandestinely held secret operations are not only part of government operations, they are part of the mafia and mob hits and gangland-style murders. The use of this technology against U.S. citizens comes under alarming suspicion as it violates the very constitution on which this country was founded. It violates 4th amendment rights.

Another important distinction to recognize is the importance of language and dialogue in conflict resolution. When language and dialogue collapse, whether it be from an inconceivable violation (denial of “privileges”) in the distinction between what is “mine” and what is “yours,” or at some other failed to arrive at consensus, what inevitably will emerge are acts of violence against Other“The prohibition now opens up into a situation of War, in which it is always right to defend oneself or one’s own violently and in the name of self-defense, but certainly not to defend a whole host of others who do not belong to “one’s broader sense of self (Butler, 2020). “ In the deployment of electronic targeted assaults against U.S. citizens, people’s bodies are being usurped, stolen, and taken away from them which in concept is very similar to deceptive sexual practices and sexual assault which is a category of crime that sometimes presents a concept in crisis in legal studies, and is similar to the concept in crisis surrounding the phenomenon of gang stalking with electronic targeted assaults (Conaghan, 2019; Gibson, 2020). That is, a failure to arrive at conclusion as to whether or not some form of behavior is “assaulting.” That is, a violence or a violation done to the victim so that it is not done to one’s own, as an exception to the prohibition to violence that now becomes a potential state of war, or at least such a state that is coextensive with its logic (Butler, 2020). Since the “stealing of one’s body” has been classified as deceptive sexual relations or sexual assault, and the dehumanization of people within organizational structures becomes part of how corporate business is conducted (Christoff, 2014; Halsam, 2006), and even how gangs and mafia organizations have operated, one must ask the question, “How these electronic targeted assaults fit into the corporate-political agenda? Or even if they fit at all?” Or question, “Is it part of something much more problematic; invisible crime and invisible empires?” That is to say, “Is it a part of RICO?”

How is it still being carried out without federal and state intervention classifying the behavior of electronic targeted assaults as a violation to the constitutional rights of individuals? The war in the Middle East will be ending soon in the Fall of 2021. Will these electronic targeted assaults end too if they are part of the government’s “service surveillance security” operation of Homeland Security (law enforcement operations)?

It is important to convey the knowledge that electronic targeted assaults steal away from the individual their locus of control. When someone’s locus of control is removed, it inflicts a state of unhappiness and dysphoria because it takes away the individual’s sense of individual empowerment (Farnier, Shankland, Kotsou, Inigo, Rosset,& Leys 2021). Its long-term effect inflicts psychological damage and forces lifestyle changes that end up being detrimental to the victim (Sheridan, James, & Roth, 2020). Since cultural differences are a part of social differences, lifestyle choices become altered through this technology’s deployment. It is not hard to see how gang stalking with electronic targeted assaults tie into the drug culture and gang violence, even the phenomenon of dehumanization in organizational and corporate-political settings.

When I was in psyche, following a hit and run, drunk driving incident, where I was involuntarily detained for a week, a claim was made by other patients on the hospital ward. The claim was there were “body snatchers” coming in the middle of the night while the patients slept. These patients were removed from their beds by orderlies who put their bodies on gurneys and took them “away.” I was one of these patients. The patients were roofied but returned to their beds by morning. People wondered where were these patients going in the middle of the night, of which, no answer was ever given. Not even to me and I was one of the bodies that were stolen away in the night! Didn’t I have a right to know? This sounds like a scene right out of an Albert Hitchcock episode of “The Twilight Zone,” but it was really occurring. And now, several years later, I am experiencing “body snatching” electronic targeted assaults that mimic the very phenomenon that was occurring in the hospital ward during my stay there. Law enforcement was involved, of course, because I was in a car accident and struck another driver on the road. So, someone please tell me how this all fits together? Yes, I was guilty of a crime, and yes, I am mentally ill, but do I deserve to be tortured for it for the rest of my life? I am no less mentally ill than the philosophy “man sprung fully formed into his social and political environment, responsible and independent.” Or no more mentally ill than Robinson Crusoe, that solitary man who sprung fully developed into his social and political environment, stranded on an island all by himself never having known dependency. That first figure of primary “natural man,” completely self-sufficient even when he looked at himself in the mirror, blind to his mother’s upholding and support of him, totally and completely self-sufficient. Or no more mentally ill than Karl Marx’s Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts of 1844, in which he ridiculed with great irony, that in the beginning “natural man” is like Robinson Crusoe. A man all alone on an island, providing for his own sustenance, living without dependency, without systems of labor, and without any common organization of political and economic life, without ever having known the dependency of a woman. Except, I was born a female, a woman fashioned in the gender role these very ideologies obliterate! The female all men need to evacuate from their psyches, a mother, a sexual partner, a wife. It’s an annihilation of Other in the service of a masculine self-defense mechanism. I am a dependent. I provide a domestic service as a non-wage earner. A service that has been directly tampered with through these targeted electronic assaults.

The problem with gang stalking with electronic targeted assaults is the element of shame and guilt. People feel shameful and embarrassed if and when they are exposed. As a result, they are afraid to tell their true story which might touch upon their mental illness or some illicit infraction. This directly contributes to the phenomenon’s obscurity because individuals hide the truth and are afraid of exposing the true nature of their experiences. Much like how the mafia controlled law enforcement with intimidation and fear, this technology’s apparatus of control is the same intimidation and fear of castration. For many years, Edgar J. Hoover was afraid to address the mob and enforce constitutional law because he was afraid of its lethal repercussions. He knew that good men, not might die, but that they were going to die in the war against justice. Here is the problem. Some forms of justice are phantoms, delusional apparitions held because of man’s fear of dependency and castration.

It’s very possible that these same mechanisms are working together on a corporate-political scale, and are the same forces responsible for the dehumanization of people within organizational settings, or at least these entities possess the same mentality that dehumanizes people in general. This mentality is adhered closely by sadists and people with the Dark Triad and the Dark Tetrad character traits (Buckels, Jones, & Paulhus, 2013; Johnson, Plouffe, & Saklofske, 2019; Krick, Tresp, Vatter, Ludwig, Wihlenda, & Rettenberger, 2016; Lyons, & Jonason, 2015).

Perhaps I’m missing another organizational structure in which these same mechanisms work and operate, the family, thereby making it a family-corporate-political conglomerate historically known as The Mob and organized crime.

Analysis of Gang Stalking, Electronic Targeted Assaults, Psychotronic Torture and a Historical Perspective on Oppressing Minority Groups

Image for post

This paper attempts to explain the phenomenon known as the Targeted Individual (TIs) through a historical, sociological, psychological and philosophical lens.

To begin, I originally thought gang stalking and electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture were tied to the perpetrator’s possession of strong essentialist’s beliefs in a “common culture”. For it to be classified as a phenomenon that displays a characteristic possession of strong essentialist’s beliefs, the person would have to believe in upholding the principles that adhere to teaching practical skills and knowledge to young children, shaping self-discipline, and responsibility within a mainstream “common culture.” But the very act of gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture combined with other elements of electronic harassment deviate from essentialist’s principles in that perpetrators of these crimes seek to alleviate themselves from responsibility by veiling their identity through strategic tactics. In fact, its behavior is more closely rooted in the psychotic foreclosure of splitting that becomes part of the cycle of violence often observed in patterns of domestic violence and domestic abuse (male batterers). Torturing people with low-level frequency (ELF) is not “helping” someone, it is harming the individual because of its tedious, bothersome intrusions which seek to passive-aggressively nudge the individual towards sickness and untimely death. The sequelae of gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture are not fully understood yet, but it has been established through independent research studies to be connected to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, and anxiety. Similar to how new pharmaceutical drug therapies’ side-effects are poorly understood, the full sequelae of side effects haven’t been officially documented. As with new pharmaceutical drugs, new advancing technologies can also pose potential harmful side-effects. Doctors prescribe pharma drugs to patients when they believe the benefit of taking the drug will far out ways any possible harmful side-effects. In this light, it would appear gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture may be part of some type of unethical, inhumane medical research study or connected with clandestine military experiments utilizing control over subjects.

Essentialist principles encourage traditional “common culture” and therefore anything that may lie outside of the traditional “common culture” would be considered deviant. It’s the difference between the conservative Republicans and the liberal Democrats. To make an even more fundamental comparison, we could illustrate the fundamental differences between white culture versus black culture. Comparing the differences in popular music genres in both groups and comparing the differences in popular visual art in both groups. These are some of the basic differences between young white Americans and young black Americans.

Every individual upholds some level of essentialist beliefs. Some score high, while others score much lower. Strong essentialist beliefs are associated with certain groups like the Marines or uncorrupted police officers who uphold principles of honor, courage, and commitment. These types of principles of leadership strongly support community ties and the regulating of behavior by adhering to strong family values and core principles of leadership. Leadership principles that exemplify the ultimate in ethical and moral behavior. Never lie, never cheat or steal; abide by an uncompromising code of integrity; respect human dignity and respect others. Honor compels people to act responsibly, fulfill their obligations, and hold themselves and others accountable for every action. Those that score much lower in essentialist’s beliefs may be associated with minority groups that deviate from traditional “common culture” core values of leadership.

Historically, over seventy years ago, the stereotype of the traditional mainstream “common culture” in America was presented to the public as the white suburban family. Husband, wife, two children, living in middle-class suburban housing development, wearing traditional conservative clothing, owning a moderate automobile, with the father holding middle management job. To illustrate social difference, this stereotype starkly opposes the radical group known as the “hippies” that were popular during the 1960s, and with the formation of this alternate lifestyle, as with the formation of any alternate lifestyle, we witnessed the manifestation of social conflicts. Differences between majority groups and minority groups contributed to civil unrest, political protests for social rights that oftentimes turn violent. Vietnam War protests and the black Social Rights Movement expressed the difference in opinion between the two groups. Radical groups are commonly defined based on the differences in their lifestyle choices, value systems, and social practices that deviate from mainstream “common culture.” Extraordinary groups like the Gypsies, the Mormons, and the Old Order Amish are some groups that, although may not be considered “deviant”, lie outside the traditional American “common culture”. Group differences are what generate fear and isolation and it is usually through segregation by the larger majority, seeking to isolate the opposing minority groups and block them from gaining any form of social momentum, power, or leverage within the mainstream social order. This cannot be said of the Old Order Amish who actively isolate themselves from the larger majority based in their religious beliefs, but we see how human homogeneous tendencies isolate and protect the integrity of the group. This basic philosophical principle is what I believe is contributing to the phenomenon of the Targeted Individual (TIs) suffering electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture.

ELF is the use of extremely low frequency which can accomplish a form of electronic targeted assault and torture. Imagine receiving low-level frequency stimulation/vibration to your dental implants that is unconsented and unannounced as you go about your routine. Mild vibrational energy to the head, that can create mild forms of discomfort and fatigue. Electronic stimulation (vibration) in the lower back and spine giving the subject a sensation of a gnawing type of discomfort and bothersome annoyance that creates a dystopic existence in an individual’s life. Roaming levels of moving electromagnetic stimulation that move throughout the entire human body is another aspect of electronic targeted assault that contributes to the onset of depression, anxiety symptoms, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Being awakened in the early morning hours when it is suddenly turned on, both in your head and other times in the lower body, aimed at making the individual feel extremely uncomfortable. Then, the person, trying to offset their discomfort by eating or by anesthetizing themselves by drinking alcohol contributes to the long-term sequelae of electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture. Targeted Individuals claim to hear “voices” and some of these voices talk and answer them. This is one of the most insidious aspects of the targeting because the symptoms get labeled “schizophrenic” by medical doctors because the actual reason as to how this technology accomplishes what it accomplishes remain vague and poorly understood.

Gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture is a “bloodless crime.” In reviewing another form of phenomenon, Cattle Mutilations, where various forms of livestock are killed and then mutilated by organ removal. Cattle Mutilations, at first glance, doesn’t appear to be a “bloodless” crime but it does possess a form of bloodlessness. A very common report in cases of Cattle Mutilations is the draining of blood from the animal, followed by organ harvest. In many cases, people victimized by this form of crime, report no blood spatter or blood spill at the crime scene and since we can only understand the meaning behind its silent articulations, I asked myself what is the symbolism of “bloodless bloodshed.”

The symbolism of “bloodless bloodshed” can be described by the adjective “exsanguine” as in meaning “no longer having or seeming to have or expecting to have life.” Bloodless symbolism can also be described using the adjective “anemic” and in possessing a paler from illness or emotion. “She spoke with bloodless lips.” Yet in other symbolism bloodless can mean “without vigor or zest or energy” or “spiritless” as in “a bloodless young man.” In another form of symbolism bloodless bloodshed could also mean “devoid of human emotion or feeling,” as used in the phrase, “bloodless economic indicators.” It is the “nonhuman” symbolism inbloodless bloodshed that most closely represents what the phenomenon’s unspoken articulations represent as in “not belonging to humans, not produced by or appropriate to human beings.” Thissymbolism behind gang stalking, electronic targeted assault, and psychotronic torture establishing “fear and isolation from the opposing group” based on difference or conflict. When a group begins to no longer see the opposing group as human, what often follows is the collapse of meaningful dialogue and the eruption of violence. This means conflict is at the heart of gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture. However, conflict is not abuse. Abuse is abuse and since violent abuse registers in the realm of psychotic foreclosure in the splitting of objects into good and bad parts (paranoid schizoid), thereby establishing these behaviors associated with gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture as belonging to a psychotic personality constellation in its analysis. It is for this reason in dream symbolism of the Targeted Individual, a corpse of someone you don’t know may symbolize the behavior of gang stalking violence, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture and represent the deranged mind of the perpetrator because of its tyrannical dictatorship over the individual. Just like the passage of Time in aging’s, the tyrannical rule over the living with Time’s slow creeping and ushering us into an age of predestine death and ultimately our own mortality through a third-party by proxy assistance. A corpse is emotionless, and psychotic foreclosure is devoid of the capacity of concern and well-being for another. That represents a lack of empathy that can register in dream symbolism as “a cadaver” or “dead body.”

Since political groups that inhabit the White House are extremely good at “spin” in transmitting disinformation, I have to ask the reason why Donald Trump was encouraged to run for president? Could this have been for the promoting of an illusion directed at Republican reprisal? Maybe not, but no one will know for sure because some things are kept clandestinely hidden from viewing eyes. This is my opinion because Donald Trump was manipulated just like Donald Trump manipulated others. It is this point to “illusion” and “theatrical stage production” that I have directed your attention here. The illusion that a Targeted Individual presents as “schizophrenic” because he or she is “hearing voices,” and its connection to a theatre re-enactment or a clandestine seduction utilizing deception (Machiavellianism) and “spin”.

Victims of gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture suffer bloodless bloodshed can be explained through its symbolism (noted above). Its meaning and purpose belong to the Silent Production of Violence or Silent Crime and with the nature of the clandestine assaults, this means we have to read its silent articulations through reading silence, that is, through unspoken language which does not explicitly say which arrives at the point of falling away from any meaningful dialogue and the eruption of violence. This phenomenon has been called trauma-based conditioning in forming a subject and reading Judith Butler’s “The Psychic Life of Power: Theories in Subjection” can help one come to an understanding as to what this phenomenon represents.

Bloodless bloodshed is an oxymoron term that means violence that doesn’t draw blood but inflicts some type of harm. Through independent unbiased, methodological research studies into this phenomenon, one of the reason’s provided by the researchers as to why the gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture are being carried out; the number one answer was to get the individual to “follow-up” with a support group and meet with a psychiatrist for medications and for additional mental health benefits, grants/disability payments, etc. This would make sense if, the targeted person is part of a family group that deems violence as an acceptable way to settle disputes. The targeted person, who is not working or earning a financial income, allows other family members to care for him or her, the other family members may enter into a conspiracy that would force the person into a “cage” through gang stalking, electronic coercive control (assaults), and psychotronic torture. This might be considered a legitimate avenue with which to solve a problem for those existing in subcultures of violence. Women, as a vulnerable population, maybe the easiest and most vulnerable targets. Women who provide domestic services but do not get paid for their work are considered “non-wage earners.” That is, they exist to serve those at the top of the social hierarchy and are themselves vulnerable to assault. This is one of the reasons why women are most likely to be manipulated and exploited by men in their families. Investigations and research studies into this phenomenon are still very fresh and new, but researchers have concluded this phenomenon is really happening and it is a phenomenon that is poorly understood and requires additional research to fully understand better exactly what it represents.

Although men are targets as well, women have been historically oppressed by men who wish to do them harm and this is usually rooted in some type of difference of opinion or conflict. The most dangerous position a woman can place herself in is pregnancy. When she becomes pregnant, not only does she herself become dependent, but her child as well becomes a dependent; a dependent with a dependent. During the 19th century, the role of the asylum was used as a tool to oppress women who expressed a difference of opinion or displayed behaviors that went against their mainstream counterparts. In a similar tone, the role of gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture is utilized in very much the same way. That is to say, it is used as a tool to oppress certain groups within a social order through hidden power structures that conceal identity and are most likely comprised of men. During the Victorian time period, men as the head of the household held absolute power over their wives and children. Husbands could then, therefore, with absolutely no proof, commit his wife to an asylum for various reasons. In the 19th century Victorian era these reasons included the following: insanity due to suppression of menses, insanity due to religious matters, insanity due to religious excitement, insanity due to nymphomania. Today, a woman would never be committed to a psychiatric hospital for such reasons. Today we have “commitment laws” that govern which types of psychiatric disorders are deemed a threat to the general public and demand that a patient be isolated from the general population at large. But to make my point, while many things do change from century-to-century and epoch-to-epoch, some things never change they only reshape and reform themselves into new types of phenomenon rooted in the same issues of social control by the majority group which, I have said, always tend to oppress minority groups through hidden power structures. Structures the likes we have witnessed during antebellum with the formation of the secret social group known as the Ku Klux Klan. When the social order loosely defines or fails completely to define what behaviors are considered deviant through the creation of statute laws clearly establishing criminal conduct, the mysteries surrounding the phenomenon will continue to befuddle and perplex everyday citizens and allow for the continuance of such crimes. This was certainly the case in the 19th century when Victorian women were locked away and never heard from again. Institutionalized and labeled “lunatics” the mystery surrounding their circumstances prevailed. We still observe abusive forms of control by men over women today in domestic violence (DV) and intimate partner violence (IPV). Two modern-day phenomena that continue to utilize coercive control and invisible power over women. Similarly, this was also the case when violence against former black slaves erupted post-antebellum. When Klan members carried out lynching and when some state or local authorities turned a blind eye to such behaviors allowing it to continue.

Gang Stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture is clearly a current crime trend, and it is being carried out in a subculture that supports violence. It is for this reason; I believe the people who find themselves targeted may have previously existed in a deviant subculture or they may have had past interactions or social ties with someone who is a part of a deviant subculture. I say may have because each case is unique and needs to be evaluated in a case-by-case manner. What happens when the deviant subculture is the NSA, the CIA, or the Secret Service? Those government agencies who are interested in service security surveillance. Violence is part of many deviant subcultures and violence is perceived as an acceptable way to settle disputes among some inner-city subcultures, not just by government agencies. This phenomenon is part of a much deeper cultural problem within the United States and around the globe.

Bondage and Discipline and The Making of New Markets for Commercial Consumer Fetishism in the Era of E-Stim

E-stim and the electronic sex toy box. How does the era of e-stim play into the electronically targeted individual? Please click on the link Electrastim | Electro Sex | Lovehoney

For Krafft-Ebing, women are indirectly to blame for male sadism. He blamed women’s diffidence, shyness, and timidity which he believed provokes male aggression. He believed this fact was due to the inherent “natural ordering of gender” and the “natural ordering” found within its sex roles, that is, the differences between the male and female subjects. The natural design of these two human creatures created women as “modestly, coy, and subservient”, while men would enjoy “boastful, extroverted, dominant victories”. Here I question if this is not due to the fact that man, like an animal, can sniff out “weakness” and “opportunity” in another, thereby identifying avenues to exert his dominant male prowess both in the bedroom and in business? Could this be a form of an evolutionary clairsentience that promotes man’s long-term survival as a “pack animal” in matters of dominant leadership and resources?

“The task for medical sexology was to police a double boundary: between the “normal” culture of male aggression and the “abnormal” culture of sadomasochism and between “normal” female masochism and “abnormal” male masochism. The first contradiction between “natural” heterosexuality and the “unnatural perversions” was primarily managed by projecting the “perversions” onto the invented zone of race. Sexologists like Krafft-Ebing demonized sadomasochism as the psychopathology of the atavistic individual, as blood-flaw and stigma of the flesh. Sadomasochism, like other fetishisms, was figured as a regression backward in time to the “prehistory” of racial “degeneration,” existing ominously in the heart of the imperial metropolis — the degeneration of the race writ as an individual pathology of the soul.

Thus, for Krafft-Ebing, decent doses of male aggression are a fait accompli of nature. Genuine sadism, however, exists in “civilized man” only to a “weak and rather rudimentary degree.” While sadism is a natural trait of “primitive” peoples, atavistic traces of sadism in “civilized man” stem, not from the environment or social accident, but are awakened from a primordial past: “Sadism must . . . be counted among the primitive anomalies of the sexual life. It is a disturbance (a deviation) in the evolution of psychosexual processes sprouting from the soil of psychical degeneration (McClintock, 1993).”

Unbridled sadism in contrast with consensual and commercial sadomasochism reveals a difference in nature. Commercial sadomasochism is therefore considered less biologically flawed or viewed as less externalizing or internalizing the psycho-pathologies of human nature. In its presentation, it is viewed as a historical subculture that emerged in Europe alongside the imperial Enlightenment. Far from being a primordial manifestation of racial “degeneracy,” sadomasochism is a subculture organized primarily around the symbolic exercise of social risk. Indeed, the outrage of sadomasochism is precisely its hostility toward ideas involving “nature being the custodian of social power.” Sadomasochism refuses to read power as fate or destiny. And since sadomasochism is the theatrical exercise of social contradiction, it is self-consciously against nature, not in the sense that it violates natural law, but in the sense that it denies the existence of natural law in the first place. Sadomasochism performs social power as both contingent and constitutive, as sanctioned neither by fate nor by God, but by the social convention and invention, that can change and re-order relationships.

Commercial sadomasochism insists on exhibiting the “primitive” (“slave,” “baby”, “woman”) as submissive characters in a theatrical stage production. On the sadomasochism theatre stage, we observe the “primitive irrational” as a dramatic script, in a “communion of performances” that is at the heart of Western reasoning sexual deviance. The paraphernalia of sadomasochism has traditionally been boots, whips, chains, uniforms, etc. which are the paraphernalia of state power and public punishment converted into private pleasures. Sadomasochism visibly stages irrational ecstasy and the alienation of the body at the center of the theatre stage against the backdrop of a theme of hierarchy and power and the differences found in the various positions of that hierarchical power. Thus, its Western reason reveals sadomasochism’s imperial logic and domina by refusing its fate as “without power.” Sadomasochism manipulates the signs of power in order to refuse nature’s legitimate rule over the form of male biological power and the male phallus.

Feminists demonize heterosexual sadomasochism as the sanctioned exercise of male tyranny. The historical line of patriarchy parades a long history of abuses attempting to freeze power and to always make one side passive and the other side dominant. Patriarchy is, therefore, the originator of masochistic and sadistic positions. Even lesbian sadomasochism is considered by feminists a form of “self-abasement on all levels that renders wimmin unable to execute truly feminist goals. In the theories of Louise Kaplan describing lesbian homosexuality in her book “Female Perversions” she uses the term “Pinocchios” to suggest the lesbian women have not been taught in the right way of her true feminist and so, “are not real women.” That is to say, in the true and natural sense of her feminine role as heterosexual counterpart to man. The term suggests “these women are not real women” but are instead props like the marionette puppet who was in search of becoming a “real boy”, in the toy workshop of Geppetto. While I understand this perception, I do not believe that all lesbians “were not real girls” or “are not real women” for that matter. I have found many gay women contribute a lot to our world, some holding advance degrees and professional titles may be more real than some heterosexual women who “know” their positions in the hierarchy of male patriarchy. I once revealed my experiences with homosexuality and homosexual fantasy to a psychiatrist, a woman, who, possessing an advanced degree in medicine, shared Louise Kaplan’s belief. I asked her why was I having these homosexual fantasies and feelings and she said, “I believe what you are asking me has something to do with being a ‘Pinocchio’” (e.g., not a real girl/real woman). She went no further than that one sentence and then left the room. I didn’t understand her response at first, and it was only later that I came to a conclusion regarding its interpretation after reading Louise Kaplan’s “Female Perversions.” However, there is a psychoanalytic theory that suggests all girls are born bisexual and that most choose a heterosexual path (Holmes, 2008).

Of course, analyzing the practice of sadomasochism as a form of sexual slavery in lesbian relationships one can see its disguise as “sexually forcing a woman against her will.” Likewise, men who pay women money to engage in sexual play of sadomasochism and take the dominant position are paying to indulge their sadistic fantasies of sexual abuse towards women. Yet the testimony of dominatrixes reveals precisely the opposite. By far the most common service paid for by men in heterosexual sexual sadomasochism in bondage and discipline is in the position of the submissive. In fact, in most bondage and discipline in heterosexual sadomasochism, the men pay to be the “slaves”, not the women. For me, this reveals subtle, unaddressed issue regarding female sadism and female aggression and perhaps may reveal a truth when it comes to the electronic tethering of targeted individual, which has been interpreted as a “passive form of aggression”, and its connection to the statistics and trends in patterns of aggression. It is women who have to navigate the “lost phallus” in their “denial of power” and it is the women who seek out positions as dominants wielding their sexual power to subjugate men.

With regard to the electronic tethering of the human body and the human mind, I have come to a conclusion that while these electronic devices were most likely designed by men, they will undoubtedly serve women who seek avenues to play out, on a theatrical stage, the unconscious, unanalyzed fantasies of mastery and control over others, playing into recovering her lost phallus, and this play may include both men and women. In the words of one dominatrix, heterosexual bondage and discipline in sexual sadomasochism are far from being the vicious unleashing of male dominance, sadomasochism is typically the other way around. There exists only a “few” dominant men who want to indulge their sadistic fantasies of “beating” women. That in fact, it is women who want to indulge their fantasies of being phallically dominant. Of course, we could come to a conclusion that most men are probably “proper gentlemen who know how to behave and treat women” but the fact of the matter is there may be far more men willing to beat women during sex play than the evidence suggests. They just lack the financial backing to pay for and receive its entertainment. Surprisingly, it has been reported that top-level business executives and churchmen are the main solicitors for the position of “slave” in bondage and discipline in sadomasochistic sex play. They come to be punished, humiliated, frightened, and tormented to the limits of their endurance.

Sex and Electricity, Yep, it’s a thing!

In the practice of extreme pornography, the use of bondage and discipline in sexual acts of sadomasochism is a common theme. In some extreme pornography female actors as well as male actors may consent to be mildly electrocuted through the use of electric stimulation through the use of “e-stim sex toys.” Where once we witnessed the paraphernalia of sadomasochism in bondage and discipline as being traditionally boots, whips, chains, uniforms, etc. as the paraphernalia of state power and public punishments conversion into private sexual pleasures. We are now witnessing in the era of 21st-century technology a combining of the commercial consumer fetish of BDSM with the latest in e-technology (electronics, wireless electronic devices) in forms of bondage and discipline and sexual sadomasochism and its conversion onto a theatrical stage, albeit confined to the deranged mind, a hidden and clandestine use of power and dominance hidden behind a theatrical curtain. The use of electronic devices that deliver e-stim in the subjugation of powerless victims by powerful dominant.

Electroejaculation! Are you interested in knowing what it is?

Electroejaculation is a procedure used to obtain semen samples from sexually mature male mammals. The procedure is used for breeding programs and research purposes in various species, as well as in the treatment of ejaculatory dysfunction in human males. This procedure is used frequently with large mammals, particularly bulls and some domestic animals, as well as humans who have certain types of anejaculation. This is the pathological inability of a male to ejaculate despite obtaining an erection. Electroejaculation has also been used for cryo conservation of animal genetic resources where one would collect semen and keep it stored in low temperatures with the intent of conserving genetic material and future revival.

In humans, electroejaculation is usually carried out under a general anesthetic. An electric probe is inserted into the rectum adjacent to the prostate gland. The probe delivers an AC voltage, usually 12–24 volts sine wave at a frequency of 60 Hz, with a current limited to usually 500 mA, although some devices can generate currents of up to 1 A. The probe is activated for 1–2 seconds, referred to as a stimulus cycle. Ejaculation usually occurs after 2–3 stimulus cycles. Care must be taken when using currents greater than 500 mA, as tissue burns may result due to the heating of the probe. The stimulus voltage stimulates nearby nerves, resulting in contraction of the pelvic muscles and ejaculation.

In the movie “The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo”, a young woman who was sodomized anally by her rapist returns to the scene of the crime and uses an electrified cattle prod to sadistically assault the man as a form of “payback” for the wrongs committed by him.

Now, introducing new electrified sex toys and e-stim. Yes, this is just what it sounds like, sex toys that shock the skin and genitals on actual people’s bodies. Electrostimulation or e-stim via sex toys are having somewhat of a moment today. Adding an e-stim toy to certain erogenous zones can heighten sensitivity and deepen pleasurable feelings. “It gets right into those deep nerves and muscles.”

E-stim toys are toys that deliver controlled electric shock acutely, slightly sharp sparks to wherever the toy is placed on the body. They are not supposed to hurt, but rather stimulate. In the area of wireless hand-held devices, I wonder “can these e-toys be biologically implanted and controlled through remote, wireless devices? Perhaps even by a “rogue” operator? Is this what the phenomenon known as the electronically targeted individual is all about? Control of the human body, and the human mind, via remote wireless signals to stimulate/sedate (e.g., torture) a human victim?

Some men enjoy having their testicles tantalized with simulation (e.g., licking, tickling, sucking) and now the latest trend in sex toys are electronic devices that deliver, to the gonads, nipples, inner thigh, anal regions, a mild form of electrocution in the form of electronic stimulation (e-stim). Much like the cattle prods, farmers use to shock the backside of their heifers in order to direct and move them into the area they wish the livestock to be. For beginners, one source recommends the “Doc Johnson Stinger Wand.” It is also called the “Stinger Electro-Play Wand” and it retails for about $39.99 at www.lovehoney.com/bondage/electro-medical-fetish/ if you’re interested in providing your “love honey” some extra stimulation. This product is recommended for beginners because it is user friendly and provides a starting point for people interested in e-stim toys. It resembles a cattle prod used by farmers except it is made of red and black plastic instead of metal.

E-stim toys aren’t just limited to external play either. There are some toys on the market that are meant to be inserted or worn and can cause muscle contractions to those specific areas (think nipples, vagina, anus).

I have been studying psychology and psychoanalysis, in particular, the internalizing and externalizing of psychopathologies. Externalizing pathologies that give rise to deviant desires, in particular bondage and discipline and sexual sadomasochism. Most recently we have witnessed the development of phenomenon called the Targeted Individual (TIs) and the electronically Targeted Individual (eTIs). Reviewing the psychoanalytic literature of primal scene fantasies based on Freudian theory, theories in matricide, and the development of commercial consumer BDSM fetish, it shouldn’t be that difficult to see how the phenomenon of the TI and the eTI are connected to the primal scene and is a by-product of hi-tech commercial consumer fetishism in combination with the commercial consumer BDSM fetish.

If we can’t say what electronic targeting and electronic torture “is”, how can we defend against it as a criminal act?

A Concept in Crisis

Misleading truths that obscure the real nature of electronic targeting, electronic harassment, electronic assaults, and electronic torture compound the misunderstandings surrounding the phenomenon. In an academic paper entitled The Essence of Rape by Joanne Conaghan published in the Oxford Journal of Legal Studies (2019) states,

“…if perceptions of rape vary so extensively, how can it properly signify a shared understanding around which public debate may be conducted (Conaghan, 2019)?”

Likewise, this same problem exists with the phenomenon of electronically targeted individuals. These individuals claim government interference, police misconduct, police stalking and harassment, gang stalking by other citizens, and that they are being used as a part of “government secret operations in clandestine experiments of mind control.” One website has suggested the phenomenon of the electronically targeted individual’s most accurate description is “security-service stalking.” (Karlstrom, 2018) “Security-service stalking” is called “cyberstalking” by the FBI. (United States Attorney’s Bulletins & Journal of Federal Law Practices, May 2016).

I am going to try and weave an understanding between professional moral misconduct and the electronically targeted individual. Last night I watched a 20/20 documentary about the tragic death of Anna Nicole Smith (e.g., Viki Lynn Hogan) who was pronounced dead from a drug overdose and an abscess that infected her body at the site of an injection given to her by her personal psychiatrist, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich. The doctor who gave her the injection and wrote her the 10 prescription drugs Anna Nicole had in her system at the time of death eluded a prison sentence (Ceasar, 2015). She had all charges dropped and only one count, a misdemeanor, for writing a prescription drug, not in the name of the person it was intended. Since the law recognizes and guides how the structure of consent is established, was it perceived that Anna Nicole contributed to her own death because she had the money to pay an immoral doctor the necessary cash required for acquiring those needed prescriptions? Similarly, in cases of rape, the courts look at how “consent” was structured for the activity. Since the making of consent is not unfettered but not vested with one source; it is a dialectic between ordinary people and the law, and the social reality that orders relationships within a prescribed legal category. The law is not so much concerned with a person freely giving consent to engage in an activity, as much as it is with the social and moral value of the activity to which the person is consenting. If this is true then why was, psychiatrist Khristine Eroshevich, responsible for medical misconduct and the manslaughter death of Anna Nicole Smith, acquitted on practically all the charges (Associated Press, 2010)? It’s because consent isn’t enough to guarantee that a person’s behavior is moral. Yet we live in a world that evaluates a person behavior by looking at their accumulated wealth, their credit score, their bank accounts, how timely they pay their bills and taxes, level of education, along with security background checks, and none of those things provide any indication that the person actually possesses an ounce of morality. In the final court decision in the trial, People v. Samuels (1967), a case involving BDSM, the court wrote:

“It is a matter of common knowledge that a normal person in full possession of his or her mental faculties does not freely and seriously consent to the use upon his or her self of force likely to produce great bodily harm. Those persons that do freely consent to such force and bodily injury no doubt require the enforcement of the very [criminal] laws that were enacted to protect them and other humans (Weinberg, 2016).”

One might make the argument that Anna Nicole Smith was perhaps not of her right sound mind and body and that Dr. Eroshevich’s professional opinions were being influenced by the money and fame Anna Nicole Smith offered. The promise of lucrative cash payments and high profile, luxurious lifestyle in exchange for prescription drugs and doctor services, and how the subtle nuances of coercive control played back and forth in this scenario. But shouldn’t have Dr. Eroshevich’s professional training make her more responsible for the wrong done? Now, let’s make the leap from this sensationalized tragic case of a beauty queen to the phenomenon of the electronically targeted individual. Supply “On Demand.” [This pun was purposely intended to make my case because we now live in an age where wireless frequency (wi-fi) is made available on demand.] The addicted are a vulnerable population within our communities and, as such, require more protection under the law from those wishing to do them bodily harm. It’s not likely the addicted “freely” choose (for their actions may be unconscious to them) to impose “the force” (the long-term side effects of drug and alcohol use) against their bodies, but rather they are responding to unanalyzed and unconscious past trauma(s). Behavior resulting from a subjugating process, and “a psychic life of power” instilled in them from early childhood. If one is to undo the damage of a brain “hard-wired” for behavior then it would take a pretty strong force to influence and try and “change” its path. The new advances in medicine manipulating human consciousness utilize radio frequency and artificial electronic stimulation.

To say that, “Money is the God that rules all fools” is a gross understatement. To make the leap from the manslaughter charge Dr. Eroshevich should have been given to the phenomenon of the targeted individual isn’t too difficult. When we make the leap from the case of Anna Nicole Smith to the phenomenon of the electronically targeted individual we may see a very similar picture of moral misconduct, coercive control, and the taking of hostages which are all found in the phenomenon now known as electronic targeting, electronic assault, electronic harassment, electronic bodily torture which may be part of a hidden subculture possessing the disposable income, a large financial base of economic support, and the hidden network connections to ensure its continued operations.

Supply “On Demand” in Sadistic Enjoyments. If the outrage of sex play involving bondage and discipline is its insight into consensual sadomasochism as higher theater, then, we could also say, the phenomenon of the electronically tortured and assaulted target individuals also plays into this “higher theatre.” A theatre that involves cruelty as high entertainment. How can we make the phenomenon of the electronically targeted individual’s connection to “higher theatre and higher entertainment?” Is it through the connection of “On-Demand Services,” providers supplying us with the connection to tap into its security-service stalking nature? To argue that in acts of sadism the “dominant” has power and the “slave” has not is to read theater for reality, and it is to read the theatre of WAR. And here we arrive at the unveiling in the nature of some individuals’ primal scene fantasies which act out in bloody murderous aggression against their fellow man (Neidecken, 2016). How does this tie into BDSM and the electronically targeted, assaulted, harassed, and tortured individual? It ties in through man’s proclivity to demonize groups and the very human enjoyment derived from dehumanizing, degrading, and destroying, and stealing from those same groups. It is as Michael Foucault said,

“Sadomasochism, as Foucault puts it, “is not a name given to a practice as old as [Love]; it is a massive cultural fact which appeared precisely at the end of the eighteenth century, and which constitutes one of the greatest conversions of Western imagination: unreason transformed into delirium of the heart.” The sadism in bondage and discipline “plays the world backwards.” It plays it backward because it nudges us ever closer to our Neolithic ancestors and the savage beatings that made up humanity as a whole.

From Domestic Violence to Coercive Control. At the core of security-service stalking is coercive control and,

“the core of coercive control theory is the analogy to other capture crimes like hostage-taking and kidnapping, a comparison that illustrates its “generality.” The singular advantage of the analogy is that it links, not just women [and their children] to the large discourse of rights and liberties we apply to citizen-victims, including human rights discourse, implicitly undermining a major rationale that limits justice intervention in what are “deemed just family matters.” By using gender-neutral language of power and control to frame abuse, the hostage analogy also supports an approach woman have repeatedly used to gain legal rights men already possess, such as the right to vote or sit on juries. Called “formal equality,” courts or legislators are asked to imagine the wrong involved if men were denied these rights solely because of their sex, to attribute the observed lack of parity to discrimination, and then to level the playing field so that women are treated identically to men. From this vantage point, the right of abuse victims to “equal protection” reflects the resemblance of abuse to assault and other harms from which men and strangers are already protected. The analogy also supports the belief that battered women are “hostages at home,” suggesting abuse is a political crime like terrorism (Stark, 2007).”

Utilizing this understanding of domestic violence and the nature of coercive control used to carry out such violence, we can come to an understanding of “security-service stalking” and its analogy to hostage-taking and kidnapping. Acts the obstruct the exercise of a person’s full civil liberties. In short, imprisonment within the confines of an electromagnetic cage that tethers the human body electronically to a controller.

Throughout the Torah, God is imbued with great healing powers. It is no wonder that it is written, “The Lord giveth, the Lord taketh away” when it comes to health, wealth, and life itself.”
