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

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 in bloodless 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.” This symbolism 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.
