Organized stalking is not about anything the target has done or may do. it’s more about the hidden extra-judicial system that many targets experience, slander and the propagation of false accusations which some perpetrators use to fuel their self-serving notion that the target deserves persecution.
More to point though, gang stalking is a form of covert oppression carried out against all people, targets, perpetrators and the general public alike. The targets are scapegoats. Gang stalking is not really about the target so much as a way to focus the attention of a group of people toward projecting their challenges and shortcomings onto someone else (the target), rather than take the reigns, acknowledge the common problem (the common enemy) and confront their own developmental hurdles as well (start applying critical thinking).
Gang stalking appears to be a cultural and social sickness. In many ways targeted individuals are modern shaman, naturally processing many of the darker shadowsof the human Collective Unconscious. Another perspective is that gang stalking appears to manifest from a systemic force that is related to stasis -maintaining the status quo. Mouravieff called this force the General Law. There is also the Law of Exception and a balancing forces, which allow a metered amount of new/unknown into the relatively static system, and allow a small number, yet many individuals, free of the static system –to see a larger perspective of the world and forces acting upon it. (see Mouravieff’s Gnosis series for more on these perspectives). And still others believe that it boils down to the secret societies and wealthy elite, the governments they control, a global system of covert oppression complete with various layers of indoctrination tactics and life-long programming attempts through the media, schools and state sponsored programs like Citizen Corps. I believe the latter is an effect of the former; there are systemic influences and conditions that cause many phenomena geared to keep an individual in line.
All factions of mainstream society can become involved in gang stalking; everyone from children to senior citizens can be recruited to participate in spying, harassment and torture of targeted individuals. Governments have used these civilian spy groups in various forms since the Roman Empire. From my own experiences and research, I believe that smaller groups of thrill seekers have adopted the tactics of COINTELPRO, RED SQUAD and similar interrogation and terrorism programs throughout history, and use these to torment targets. -sometimes it is trickle down or direct interference from well established networks, and many times it’s thrill seekers copy catting the nefarious deeds of past criminals, criminal agencies and operations. A well developed and insidious form of government interference are organizations like Citizen Corps, T.I.P.S., Citizens on Phone Patrol. These groups present fronts about keeping America safe, etc. always implying/suggesting these fears that we need to keep an eye out for the bad guys. Such groups patrol neighborhoods, airways, and use illegal surveillance for gathering information, spying, and terrorizing those unfortunate individuals who have made it onto their blacklists.
There really is no distinct age group or sub-culture that gang stalking participants are limited to. I’ve experienced stalking behavior from children as young as 10 all the way up to little old ladies.
Some people end up participating by being recruited into one of the organizations, like Citizen Corps, because they genuinely want to help their community. Such people might think they are volunteering to help keeo their communities safe and prepared for natural disasters, but end up getting sucked into monitoring the lives of innocent people who have been deemed dangerous, as handed down by hidden leaders, to the organizers of these programs. Many citizens neglect to utilize critical thinking to realize that what they are being told about people could possibly be untrue, or they are scared not to comply with these seemingly powerful leader types. Oftentimes these handlers are authoratative and charismatic men who first approach a group of a target’s associates, pretending to be someone very high up in terms of power and influence (though in reality they are just smaller fish higher ups use to leverage their surveillance information).
As a target of gang stalking I’ve seen how respective degrees of personal response-ability (or lack thereof) play out for those affected by mob mentality. Particularly those with low self esteem, an undeveloped ability to think for themselves, a need to fit in to a social group or wield power over others… are prime candidates to be taken into the world of gang stalking, either as malicious and willing participants (thrill seekers) or as somewhat less witting pawns.
In most cases of organized stalking, it appears that weakness of character and maliciousness contribute to the decision of a person to willfully participate in the harming of another. In many cases it’s sick thrill seeking that fuels the desire to participate. In everycase there’s a lack of personal responsibility. Many times this caused by fear. Fear is a very common motivator for people to participate in gang stalking. Many TIs report that harassment against them did not start until they were approached and refused to participate in harassing or terrorizing someone else.
