Imagine going about your life, and one day you notice that you've been starting to get a statistically disproportionate number of wrong number calls on your phone. Nearly all of your neighbors suddenly get louder, even purchasing equipment (leaf-blowers, basketball gear for the driveway, car alarms and whatever else they can think of) that all has one thing in common - it's loud - and they use it all hours of the day... even regularly taking shifts so that there's no peace and quiet from early morning till late at night. Traffic spikes sharply upward right outside your door, and people are always parking right outside, slamming their car doors, and chirping their brand spanking new car alarms that they suddenly all decided to rush out and get. When you go out, there seem to be more people around you on the street than usual. Wherever you go, strangers around you begin coughing more often. Clearing their throat around you more ("heh-HEMM!") unnecessarily loudly... and about once a minute. Statistically improbable numbers of total strangers around you whistling mindlessly - and tunelessly. The volume of strangers talking and laughing around you goes way, way up. In public, people in your peripheral vision seem to make a point of shaking their legs, tapping their feet, and even crossing their legs and jiggling their raised foot frenetically at the ankle... so that whatever you're doing, they break your concentration. People around you gesticulating wildly in conversation and even slapping themselves on the thigh repeatedly, hard enough to produce a really loud slapping noise, and continuing their conversation as if totally unaware of it. Many of the people you encounter and have to deal with in public life get ruder and ruder, and strangers around you start getting into loud arguments with each other wherever you go, while others will start interrupting you for seemingly normal reasons ("Do you know what time it is?" "Do you know how to get to _____ ?") but it will be a sharp increase beyond what is statistically normal... and day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, this bizarre jackassery just keeps happening.
This is organized stalking, and targets of it encounter scenarios like this every day. What would ordinarily be "lifes normal breaks", or simple bad luck, or encountering the occasional rude or thoughtless person instead reach a level that is too high to be explained in terms like that. I know this because I am a target of organized stalking, and have been for years. While it hasn't received a lot of attention yet from mainstream media, it's beginning to surface on the internet and independent news sources are beginning to carry the story. Because it isn't widely reported or acknowledged, and because of its seemingly coincidental effects, targets of organized stalking are often regarded with skepticism when they tell others about the problem, even in many cases enforcement personnel. And althought the problem has been going on in cities and suburbs for at least two decades, and the U.S. justice system has enacted legislation against one-on-one stalking, it has singularly disregarded the problem of organized stalking, in which an organized group of seemingly unrelated strangers are working as one to stalk as a lone stalker would - and go further, to harrass the target and sabotage all areas of their life.

Riches to rags
Peace and quiet becomes impossible to achieve, in the target's own home or anywhere else. Stress levels increase on a daily basis. Sleep is disrupted. Sometimes, break-ins and personal thefts occur. One target of organized stalking went so far as to sell their house and move, only to find that the problems moved with them into their new neighborhood shortly after getting settled in. Small, sparsely-trafficked suburban instreets where the target lives gradually become high-traffic areas... on the corner where I lived, the city eventually installed a Yield sign due to the increase. Employers find reasons to fire targets of organized stalking, presumably due to whatever motivating forces caused their neighbors to take part in the harassment. Steady work becomes impossible for the target, and with it the ability to pay steady expenses like rent. Homelessness is often the result, opening broad new vistas of opportunity for ongoing harassment against the target, as they have nowhere to go to get away from it. Medical and dental expenses become impossible to pay for. The target's experiences of organized stalking are engineered to resemble delusions, paranoia and persecution complexes. We may never know how many targets of organized stalking have resorted to suicide, after being cast aside by the people around them as just another homeless nutcase.
Target catches stalkers with camcorder
These are casualties in a silent war. Organized stalking was once conducted by the KKK against African-Americans in the South. Since then, the CIA has conducted it in their MK Ultra program, and the FBI's own program of covert harassment against progressives, civil rights activists and otherwise outspoken individuals - including Martin Luther King - is called COINTELPRO. Many believe that although COINTELPRO was officially ended in April 1971, it has simply gone underground under that or a different project name. With so many secret government projects we may never know for certain, but this hypothesis is corroborated by my own experience - many of those I've met who have mentioned also being the targets of organized stalking have seemed to hit the profile for "troublemaker" in only one area: their research of the common law American political structure, commonly referred to as "sovereign citizenship". If this is the case, then their harassment by any government or private organization would necessarily be treason. It would also explain the failure of the U.S. justice system to recognize organized stalking and enact legislation against it - as well as provide an ample motive for this behavior. It used to be that anyone who was too politically inconvenient could be thrown into a psychological ward, labelled insane, and let them spend the rest of their life trying to clear themselves of the label and regain their freedom. With the advent of the internet and the potential for a free flow of information to greater numbers of people, it is apparently more cost-effective or less politically risky to decimate their lives - at least until the U.S. brings its troops home and begins using them to forcefully quell dissent by using them to replace local law enforcement officers, the legislation for which Bush has already signed.
From there, it's just a hop, skip and a jump to martial law, and relocating dissenters to detention and death camps which Homeland Security has already built.
Knowledge of organized stalking is just beginning to appear in our media.
But while it's easy to blame government, private for-hire organized stalking groups will evidently perform this disservice for anyone. It's been said that in America, the rest of your life is pretty much like high school. When anyone sufficiently rich has the ability to hire these groups to decimate the lives of anyone who has crossed them, this becomes even more the case. People used to complain about having one law for the rich and another for the poor, today it would seem that there is no law for the rich, while all are directed against the poor - and given the propensity for anyone to be middle-classed one day and be homeless with their life decimated the next, the definition of rich and poor is redefined as who can most effectively serve the political and economic forces in charge the best, while selling their soul the fastest. This is the way we rather casually devolve from a society of laws, to life as a combination whorehouse and game preserve. And all it takes is your collective indifference. Targets of organized stalking are, therefore, the scapegoats of the collective apathy and disinterest of everyone around them, and while pundits and politicians filibuster, lambast and make facile photo ops and talking points on the news about who is more patriotic than whom, people are going down. I've said before on HubPages that it's as if we're living in a blender, and some maniac (or about six billion of them) is progressively pressing the next-highest setting. This is part of what I'd meant - and I'd like to take the opportunity to withdraw the idea that the imagery is just an abstract metaphor.
Organized stalking is by no means limited to the U.S.. It's going on in the UK, and doubtless in other purportedly civilized countries as well. The idea that at least two first-world countries seem to have gone to the same seminar is a little disappointing. Different organized stalking groups apparently use different signals to their targets, as well. The point of organized stalking is to let the target know they are being intentionally stalked and harassed, so after moving in on the target they will establish repeated signals which the target will come through experience to associate with the stalkers. They can be entirely arbitrary - for example, laptops. People with laptops will suddenly start showing up everywhere around the target everywhere they go, with a high enough incidence that for it to be a normal, everyday occurance would be essentially impossible - particularly with all the harassment going on around the target at the same time. After a few months, the stalkers may gradually stop placing people with laptops around the target, but the psychological association will remain - whenever the target sees someone on a laptop, it will act as a psychological trigger, and the target will very likely infer that that person is part of the stalking group. These psychological triggers will accumulate for the target as more and more are added, and function pretty much like triggers left from ordinary domestic abuse - because organized stalking is a form of persecution and abuse.
High tech reindeer games
With technology available today, these reindeer games get even easier to play. Listening in on the target's activities at home is simple; they sell somewhat expensive devices to the public that will bounce a laser off of someone's window, and sounds inside will vibrate against the glass, which the the laser will pick up and translate back into sound. (These can be defeated not with tinfoil, but by going down to the pet shop and picking up a few air bubblers made for aquariums. You remove the tube, tape it to the windowpane, and plug it in. The vibrations set up on the glass by the bubbler are more than enough to drown out the smaller vibrations created by talking.) There are also a number of technologies out there that will let someone see through walls, usually involving bouncing a signal through the wall and getting image data back, similar to radar. Firemen have been using a device like this for years, designed to scan the contents of a house through the walls so that the firemen would know exactly what's where inside before they rush in through all the smoke and falling building. I've had stalkers consistently react not only to what was said inside the house, but also what was physically, silently done - even with the windows blocked.
Other targets assert that they've been made to experience pain, even leaving physical burn marks on the skin. Some have reported having their limbs moved against their will, even in their sleep, and others have reported hearing voices inside their heads, complete with the fidelity and kind of background noises you'd get with an ordinary microphone. While none of these have happened to me, there are plenty of pain generators available to the public, and there's no telling what other well-funded technologies exist within this dysfunctional Orwellian nightmare.
Resources for targets
If you find yourself the target of organized stalking there are some things you can do about it. Most of the research I've done suggests that going to the authorities doesn't work, and for whatever reason that seems to be the case I don't have any information one way or the other on that, since I haven't tried it. I have read of one target of organized stalking who found that after he went out and bought a gun, they left him alone. I've been out of the system by choice for over a decade, so the ability for me to acquire a permit is negligible. Other targets have caught their stalkers on camera - checking eBay for a used camcorder might not be the worst idea in the world, particularly if you're still at the point where your income stream hasn't been sabotaged. If you're metaphysically inclined, you also have other resources. The Lesser Key of Solomon, also known as the Theurgia Goetia, is like a little phone directory of demons - some of whom slay men, and you don't even need to know their address or social security numbers. Additionally, you can learn to run a high amount of Reiki energy - a form of divine healing energy - that has the additional and very practical effect of activating the body's own glands that produce natural opiates. With practice you can learn to do this in an eyes-open state throughout your daily life, and find yourself only minimally-affected by the harassment - being affected is necessarily a subjective thing, after all. And there are, of course, all kinds of metaphysical means by which you can route the karma of those involved right back to them. After a careful examination of the world, though, you may in fact come to the conclusion that this is reduntant. What we really need, of course, is a solution to the broken system we're all living in, but people have been making quite a collective and concerted effort towards apathy on that count. And ultimately, that's why neither being the target of organized stalking nor anything else in the world can significantly affect me internally - when you're living in a blender, beyond a certain point it doesn't really matter what setting it's on, or what your quality of life is like... it's all so far below par that it's unacceptable. That being said, I can pass on a bit of advice for those newly suffering from this recent instance of societal breakage - foam earplugs don't work well enough for something like this. You can get yourself a relatively cheap pair of around-the-ear headphones at Radio Shack and turn them up quite high, at which point you'll only have to worry about the peripheral visual distractions and tactile stuff like people drumming on your table and bumping into you and so on. You can also go to an art store and buy kneadable artist's eraser very cheaply - it will actually mold itself to conform to the insides of your ear, and block the noises out that much better. Be careful not to re-use it a lot, as it can gum up your ears for months if it starts to mix with a lot of earwax. But other than that, it can allow you to block out the daily distractions and nightly sleep-depriving noises.
And then you patiently wait for society to finish decimating itself, and contemplate the immortality of the soul. You have a look at where society is headed, and blink at its tendency to suppress the symptoms of the problem rather than solve the problem - even when the symptoms are just living, breathing people who are researching how to make the system work rather than implode. Now would be a good time to take up philosophy, religion, spirituality, metaphysics. You'll have plenty of time on your hands, when you're out on the street with your life decimated. Where to spend that time in a way that's worthwhile, while stuck in a society that's literally eating itself up from the inside, becomes the question... but then it always was, wasn't it? How much more worthwhile was it to sit in a living room watching mind-melting reality shows before all this came into your life? The cost of living has gone way, way up, and the quality of life has gone way, way down. It's now a tedious, penny-ante poker game, and all society is doing at the moment is upping the stakes to human lives. In a dead-end world, there really isn't anything more that can be taken away from you - particularly without increasing the karmic debt of those who build successful lives in shallow, meaningless terms by encroaching against you - and destroying society with a secret war against private citizens. When a society throws away the lives of its more capable, intelligent, civic-minded citizens, the resulting soul- and brain-drain means that there really isn't anything a target needs to do individually to put a stop to it; society will come to a screeching halt all on its own.
Lord of Light by Roger Zelazny
A brilliant and slyly entertaining novel that shows what happens when Powers That Be oppress a world - and what happens when someone sets up a countercurrent. See my write-up on it for more information.
The Game (1997) Michael Douglas, Sean Penn
In a somewhat thinly-veiled Hollywood allegory, Michael Douglas plays a rich executive who finds himself the target of organized stalking - complete with a lot of the head-games involved. Violence and action aside, it actually depicts a fairly accurate portrayal of the organized stalking experience. Good renting for anyone who'd like to find out what organized stalking is like.
The Net (1995) Sandra Bullock, Jeremy Northam, Dennis Miller
Hollywood again finds its thriller movies an excellent vehicle for nudging Americans into paranoia when Sandra Bullock finds herself caught in The Net, showing how "life's normal breaks" can be engineered to destroy a life - and even take over someone's identity. The technology of the modern world is twisted for evil ends, all because Sandra Bullock's character has information - in this case, computer data - that They don't want her to have. The Net demonstrates how much of our modern security in society - our public identity, our finances, our medical treatment, and our criminal records - can be altered with just a few keystrokes by the wrong people.

Gang stalking is very real and must be exposed. In the Persian language, this type of behavior (conspiring against someone) is called “shaytani” which literally means “like Satan”. Most of these conspirators are Protestant Christians.

GANGSTALKING IN MY AREA OF ALASKA IS GETTING SO HORRIFIC THAT I HAD TO CALL UPON THE SERVICES OF MY OLD GANG TO COMBAT THOSE OF THE GANGSTALKERS.THROUGH THE USE OF MY FRIENDS WHO KNOW ME VERY WELL AND DONT BELIEVE THE SCHLOCK THAT THE GANGSTALKERS SAY ABOUT ME OR TRY TO IMPLY AGAINST ME AND MY GANG HAS BEEN TAKING PICTURES AND VIDEOS AND WRITTING DOWN LICENSE PLATES AND TRACKING DOWN VEHICLES AND GIVING ALL OF THIS EVIDENCE TO A LAWYER WHO THEN GIVES IT TO THE FEDERAL AGENCY WHO IS INVESTIGATING THIS HARRASSMENT. WITHOUY MY OLD GANG I WOULD BE UP SHIT CREEK WITHOUT A PADDLE.THANK GOD FOR FRIENDS SUCH AS I HAVE.
Margaret Cone on June 15, 2015:
Gang stalkers (Community Mobbers) are sociopaths and sadists, the only emotions they have is hate, jealousy, anger and self pity. Since they do not feel empathy or compassion, their only thrill in life is to sit on their target's shoulder and suck real feelings out of them, like vampires.

Mr. Magoo on February 28, 2012:
frequently sites such as this can be set up so harassers can snag an IP address and harass someone even more. The latter usually harass people when you have real eyewitness proof of their criminal activities. Such as witnessing the government running false news stories. Secret organization members selling illegal goods. etc.. I have phone and video evidence of harassment. However. It was brought to my attention by an individual who works for the fed's (who is a monster himself). If someone launches a false complaint about someone. Then the government has to investigate. Often it can be a government employee who makes the false complaint. If the person being investigated then files a compliant of harassment there is a good chance their complaints will thus be ignored. In other words. Such people are liable to say anything about anyone first to cover their ass. Because that's really what it boils down to. It's usually the criminals who portray themselves as good guys. Government and law enforcement included. If you become a BoundMason or a chimp or any other society member. You're really just embarrassing yourselves. I put them first. Everyone knows they are lying garbage.
Satori (author) from California on February 01, 2012:
Congrats on the new book! It's good to have organized stalking information getting out there.
The personnel with whom you're working should probably be made aware, if they're not already, that the U.S. has a covert equivalent of the Civil War brewing within its various federal Agencies. The CIA for example is and always was comprised of two polar opposite factions forced together under one office: the true-blue Patriots who actively seek to keep the Union together and functioning in a proper and healthy way, and the remnants of the Gestapo who amass tons of money through drug trade and promoting a mindset and network of human slavery throughout the Union, increasingly. Within the context of covert geopolitics at least, this is what's going on through the majority of the federal Agencies. The situation at the moment is rather complex, but cash flow shortfalls and increasingly effective international resistance have been making the scenario a lot more streamlined, to the distinct and clear advantage of the Union's Patriots. See http://benjaminfulford.net for more information.
This is the scenario as it's most likely affecting your particular situation, and the personnel with whom you're working should probably be advised of it to have the information they need in order to be most effective. However, while it's accurate within its own context there are other, larger contexts that make this one look like unnecessarily convoluted, detail-oriented paper-shuffling. Larger agendas out there typically use the covert governmental and geopolitical contexts as busywork for the underlings, while they churn out daily crimes that make mass drug importation and sedition look like parking violations by comparison. And that's being written by someone who loves the Union dearly.

I have authored a new book about how voice to skull, synthetic telepathy, remote surveillance and control influenced me. This type of influence commits the crime of sedition on me. It does so in such a way that I have successfully sought out the help of the US Secret Service. I have been in contact with them because of the message I received instructed me to kill President Barrack Obama. The book is titled "Targeting our Own Country" The book discusses my story relating my experience to the U.S.S.S and Army counterintelligence. My book contrasts my experience along with Jared Lee Loughner's (Tucson Tragedy) story. Jared is the targeted individual gunman responsible for the Arizona Shooting. I dive into the real technology and provide support through hot links in the ebook. Please see my site http://www.voicetoskull.net I will be publishing soon on kindle fire, nook, ipad and pdf.
My experience of being targeted and being and having sedition worked has led me to the U.S.S.S. and they off agree that I am targeted and want to make sure the tech cannot influence me. My book is 470 pages and has take 3 years to complete.

In the olden days, the community would collectively put a bounty out on outlaws. Now the outlaws collect drug and tax money, and pay the community to do organized stalking on people.
I really want the public to become aware of organized stalking, because it will show people that if they're not part of the solution, they're funding the problem. Then we can go back to the way they used to do it.

Thanks for that info. Always good to have specifics.
If you evaluate the symbolism used by the Hell's Angels, you will find it associated with the Vatican's symbolism. They appear to be, among other things, street-level enforcement. They do not appear to be exclusive to the Vatican, but rather also work for the Rockefeller faction more prevalent within the U.S..

i have heard that alaskan towns like homer alaska,and eagle river alaska and kotzebue alaska are hot spots for gang stalking and murder.The old motorcycle gangsters pushed this stuff in alaska and now we have a rash of these biker thugs bringing in these kid gangs into alaska and the cops being rotten or the good cops being outnumbered by corrupt cops it is a sad sad situation in alaska .This used to be a good place to live now its almost as bad as hells kitchen.
Song on January 09, 2012:
Hello, Greg, well, to some extent, gangstalking is an urban, modern sport, like Parkour, for example. What is in common between Parkour and gang-stalking? Both sports use modern environment and all sorts of attributes of modern environment. In case of Parkour it's mostly buildings, cars and street stuff, and in case of gang-stalking it's all sorts of electronic gadgets and, of course, people. And when I say people, I don't mean only targets. Targets in this sport are more like baits and not the most important part of the game. Of course, from the targets' point of view - they are very important, but if we look at the bigger picture, targets are not important at all, they are just baits. Can we say that the bait is the most important part of the fishing sport? Of course not! Important parts of the fishing sport are (in the descending order): 1) environment, lakes, rivers, seas and so on, 2) fishermen, 3) fish, 4) fishing equipment, 5) baits. It's not even that important what you use as bait, you can use worms, pieces of bread, meat and so on. Therefore, it's really not about the targets. It's more about the process. The goal is not to kill the targets or drive them to suicide. Just like the goal of fishing is not to kill the bait (some fishermen say the goal is even not to catch fish, but to enjoy the process). If that was the goal, gangstalkers could just kill the targets and make it look like an accident or suicide, that would be cheaper and faster. Just like in any other sport the goal is - the process. In the process, the higher-ranked gangstalkers control the lower-ranked gangstalkers. So, this process creates a system of ranks and subordination - that's what's important to masterminds of gangstalking.

I only want to say i live in topeka kansas and they stalk people here like its a sport
Song on December 22, 2011:
Dear Satori, I did check the web-site
I have to say it is quite amasing. And also I thought about the amount of work that you obviously put into it. It's like a Master's thesis or Doctorate research paper. It also helped me to learn a lot about American history. Interesting thing, it occured to me, that what gangstalkers are doing to us is - they are trying to bring us down "democratically". It's different from bringing someone down "undemocratically" - killing or kidnapping someone and so on. They don't want to get their hands dirty. So what they do is they start a "re-election campaign", where they try to vote us out of office (our normal life). The voters are the people around us. It's a dirty campaign. They try to get their votes by all kind of means, defamation, bribery, even threats. Then they persuade people to vote against us - not by raising hand or submitting a ballot, but by whistling, singing, staring, refusing us a job, harassing us and so on - everything to let us know that they "vote" against us. Electorate behaves like a normal electorate - some people "vote" against us, some people refuse to vote and some people vote for us - by expressing their good will - treating us for dinner and so on. So, no wonder pretty soon we get tired of this constant re-election campaign and realize that we are sovereign subjects with rights given to us by God, not by people - like you wrote in your paper.
Satori (author) from California on November 23, 2011:
An interesting story. Thanks for sharing it.
I think the distinction is that the philosophy of abandonment shows us how to distinguish between desires motivated by ego attachment, and the desire to affirm and live in alignment with Divine Will. While that's a healthy thing to know how to distinguish, I often find it misapplied in situations like this.
As he put it, "Whistling, singing, laughing, white cars, people with kids, loud speaking and other things are OK - it is not crossing the line. Punching you to the face, robbing you and things like that - are not OK." I believe our society ought to draw the line when it comes to whistling, singing, laughing and so forth when they're deliberate weapons; when they're used to harass and to violate rights. In fact in the U.S., it has drawn the line there - I have my right to do what I like, provided it doesn't impair your access to your rights. When it does, I have to modify what I do so as not to encroach against you.
This is the system of government we established in this country: a constitutional republic. Not a democracy. In a republic, our rights are considered sacred and inviolate. The trouble is, groups have been causing the people to misremember what their form of government is, and warps their choices. Each inroad they make into how our society functions enables them to make even more inroads: it's a hacking effort. What a great reason to promote an education among the people of what their rights and laws truly are, not that this could ever justify all the hacking.
You may be interested to have sovereignty information. Several of my other Hubs are on the subject, and there's some great introductory information here:
Mr. Song on November 23, 2011:
By the way, about finding better ways to cope with gang-stalking. I want to tell you a story. Recently I traveled to China, where I had a chance to talk to a Dao master, an old man with a beard in a long gown, just like in movies. The fact that he gave advice to people for money didn't bother me - everybody has to survive in our capitalist world one way or another. I felt skeptical about talking to Dao master, and only did it because my Chinese friend thought it would be cool for me as a foreigner to have this experience. I waited in a line of tourists for my turn to speak to him and then I entered the gazebo and saw this man sitting on a chair, surrounded by other men, probably his students. My Chinese friend and I paid our fee (which was very modest by the way), sat on something comfortable, like a couch and converstaion (through a translator) started. The old master said something first. My friend translated: "There are no problems in this universe, there are only situations, they are not good or bad, they just are, only our thinking, our attitude towards the situation makes it bad." I thought - wait until you hear about my situation, then you will understand that it is bad. Dao master said: "tell me what bothers you, son". I said (the following is our conversation):
- What bothers me is there is a group of people that harrasses me, but they do it in such a subtle way, that I can't really report it to authorities.
- What do they do, son, and who are they?
- They slander me, they ruined my reputation, as a result they limited my job opportunities, I feel like they hurting my career and my financial situation and also irritate me daily by their stupid street theater, sensitizing me to whistling, singing, laughing, people with kids, white cars, crossing paths, loud speaking and other noise and other things.
- Are you telling me, son, that you have some enemies, who want to destroy you?
- Well, yes, basically, that's what I am saying.
- There is an old Dao saying "Whatever you fight, you strengthen, whatever you resist - persists." You have to surrender to the Universe, and then THE MEANING of all things will be opened to you.
- So, what are you saying, do not fight them, do not resist, accept the situation? But I feel that I am being discriminated, and discriminated people have to fight for their rights. For example, if black people in America in 50s and 60s didn't fight for their rights, they would still be sitting in the back of buses.
- I am not saying to do nothing, although in some situations that's the best thing to do - nothing. All what I am saying is do not judge the situation, first accept the situation as a part of universe. After COMPLETE ACCEPTANCE of the situation, you will let go of your little mind, your little ego, and get connected with UNIVERSAL INTELLIGENCE, that will guide you through the situation. But to completely surrender and completly accept you have to accept your mortality, accept the fact that your body will get old, die and decompose, accept the fact that your body is not invincible, that nothing is forever, everything is subject for change, even stars die. Now, I will help you a little to do it. Sit back and relax, but do not fall asleep. Close your eyes, now - stop thinking. Blank your mind. Awareness without thinking is the key to getting connected to UNIVERSAL INTELLIGENCE.
30 seconds or so passed, as I sat there trying not to think. Then he continued:
- Now, tell me about your problem again.
- Well, my problem is that there are people harrassing me, but they do it in such a subtle way, that I can't report it to authorities.
- Well, you just answered yourself.
- What did I answer?
- You said the harrassment is so subtle, that you can not report it to authorities. That means if harrassment intensifies, if they cross the line, you can report it to authorities. So, all what you have to do now is to decide what is the line. Whistling, singing, laughing, white cars, people with kids, loud speaking and other things are OK - it is not crossing the line. Punching you to the face, robbing you and things like that - are not OK. So, every time you encounter your harrassment, you just have to say - crossed the line, not crossed the line. If they don't cross the line - don't pay attention, and don't even think about it, if they do cross the line - report it to authorities. Period. Just draw the line. Where is the problem? No problem. Only the situation to be dealt with or accepted.
- But what about the other part?
- What other part?
- Part where they slander me, ruin my reputation, my career opportunities, my relantionships with people.
- Oh, that... My opinion is all that happens in our life, we have to learn from it, and it's not necessarily good or bad, it just is and it can be the greatest teacher for you. For example you said, they ruined your repuation. Well, look at the bright side, you don't have to care anymore about what people think about you. You can be free of good opinion of other people! What a liberation! Do you know how much time and energy other people waste caring about other people's opinion? You have a great opportunity here - you can be free of good opinion of other people - enjoy it! Maybe being liberated like that, you can finally do something really meaningful. I mean look, all the greatest people in the world, all the great philosophers of East and West didn't really care about what people or society or religious leaders and so on thought about them - that's why they were able to achive what they did. Life is giving you a chance to become one of them.

Dear Jim Jones, I tried to access your web-site, but internet connection failed. I will try it more later.
In some ways cults are more powerful than government. Why? Because they are above government. Cult members infiltrate government and law-enforcement structures and control them from inside. While government officials are public figures and are accountable for their actions, cult high-ranking officials are not accountable for their actions - they literally can do whatever they want. Soka Gakkai International has its own political party in Japanese parliament - New Komeito, which is a third largest political party in Japan after leading Democratic party of Japan and Liberal-Democratic party of Japan. Which organization do you think is more powerful, government organization New Komeito or cult organization Soka Gakkai? Soka Gakkai has millions of people, New Komeito has thousands of people, Soka Gakkai has billions of dollars in funding, New Komeito has millions of dollars in funding and so on. I think, it's the other way around. It's government and law enforcement structures that are the link between real controllers - gray cardinals, powerful cult organizations -and the rest of people. But in a big scale of things it's really not that important, which organization exactly is pulling the strings. Everybody's situation is different.
You can be bullied by one person and still suffer as much. I mean we are here online to share our experiences and emotionally support each other, right? Maybe find better ways to cope with this whole thing.
Mr. Song on November 20, 2011:
I think the same factors that motivate people to join cults motivate people to join gangstalking groups. Sense of power, of belonging to something big, something important, sense of comradery. It's collective ego. People think that they serve something bigger, than themselves, they think that they let go of ego. But in reality, a personal ego just has been replaced by a collective ego.
Jim Jones on November 20, 2011:
Mr. Song: Cults are only a go between you and some government agency, which in the U.S. is the local police department. I'm not familiar with the Japanese system. Check out my website: http://www.gangstalking.20m.com/
Mr. Song on November 20, 2011:
Satori, by the way, you also might find helpful Rick Ross cult awareness site www.rickross.com . It has some really good information about cults and discussions about cults. And since cults or cult-like groups or cultish behavior play very important role in gang-stalking, you might also go there and check it out and even post some stuff. I read an interesting article about freemasons
I also read some other stuff and I found striking similarities between freemasons and SGI. You see, both organizations have long history, both organizations claim that they are not religions (yet they enjoy the ability to do business tax-free as religious organizations), both organizations have huge numbers of people (SGI has 12 million, freemasons have 5 million around the world), both organizations are very rich, and what is most interesting for us as gang-stalking victims, both organizations have to keep their followers in line: occupied and busy and unified, and one of the ways to do it - keep them unified against common enemies. In case of SGI it's Nichiren Shoshu (rival organization) members and former members - traitors, and just random "practice targets". In case of freemasons, I am sure it's something similar, like "sinners", maybe "liberals" and so on.
I also found a forum on Rick Ross, discussing mind-control. But people there talk about MKULTRA, and some other government projects, and right away, they make it sound like conspiracy theories and paranoia. Maybe you can post there you gang-stalking experiences and point that you think that freemasons are sposoring your perps.
Satori (author) from California on November 19, 2011:
I've had to delete one of your posts, as we typically don't re-post full articles here in the Comments section. However, I'm familiar with the video you linked to and have used it as part of my workshops. It's been added to this Hub, and I'm adding the remainder of your deleted comment here to uphold your right to free speech:
"Society little by little begins to acknowledge 'gangstalking'. I think it's the term, that scares people away. I mean people are new to the concept of stalking and here they have to believe in stalking by a group. Too much! Forget about stalking for a moment. Think about bullying. There is nothing transcendental or super-unusual about bullying, right? During the 10 000 years of human history, strong were BULLYING the weak. And so it continues into the 21st century. Big brothers and big sisters bullying little brothers and little sisters, because they are bigger, there is school bullying, work-place mobbing, bosses bullying employees, bullying in the army, when older soldiers bullying new-comers (specially visible in countries with draft laws - conscripts, who were drafted earlier and are adjusted better bully new conscripts), bullying in prisons, bullying in financial world and business world, when monopolies bullying smaller private companies or how about a phrase by big boss `You career is over, I will make sure you will never work in this industry again'. Strong still bully the weak.
That's why governments break up monopolies, because they are rightfully afraid, that monopolies will abuse their power."
I hadn't been aware of SGI before. Most of my familiarity with Buddhism has been very healthy, but from what members had been describing in the forum link you'd shared it does indeed look as though the SGI group categorizes as a cult. I know enough about the Vatican to appreciate personally how anyone can screw up what could otherwise be valid religious concepts.
I'd like to bring to your attention the current effort to censor the internet. Without information available to people on suppressed topics like this, society can't function effectively. https://eff.org/r.C8A
Mr. Song on November 18, 2011:
Hello, Satori, my case is similar to yours. You are being stalked by free masons, a cult. I am also being stalked by a cult - Soka Gakkai International. Although, perps are not nessesarily members of the cult, they are being sponsored by the cult. It's intereting that your nick is Satori, which is a term from Zen, because Soka Gakkai International is a lay buddhist organization, that used to be affiliated with Nichiren Shoshu - Nichiren Buddhist sect until 1990s. In the beginning of 1990s Nichiren Shoshu high priest excommunicated Soka Gakkai and ordered them to disband. Instead of disbanding, SGI declared a war against its former parent organization Nishiren Shoshu, defaming, demonizing and harrassing Nishiren Shoshu high members, using techniques of gang-stalking. There is a forum of former SGI members discussing this in detail
I also used to post on this forum, until the moderator became impatient with the very term "gang-stalking" and started rejecting my posts. (He was fine, when I called it harrassment, bullying or defamation, because those things are acknowledged on a judicial level.)
Here is our conversation:
-Sorry, I didn't see your Private Message, and that's why I posted my message again. But, gang-stalking is very much related to SGI. I feel that before proving involement of SGI with gangstalking, I have to prove to the general public that gangstalking exists.
-Yes. There is no proof. Most people that claim this appear to delusional. It really has no place on the board. Rick Ross
-With all do respect, sir, but the very reason I posted this message is because Santa Cruz Police Leiutenant Larry Richard acknowledges gang-stalking and calls it bullying on steroids. Are you saying that leiutenant on duty of Santa Cruz police department is delusional?
-I have received many such calls. None were objectively proven. And the people involved frankly came across as both paranoid and delusional. If the police officer wishes to believe such claims that's his choice. But I don't and won't allow it on the message board. This is a serious board about real groups and situations, not delusional paranoid rants and conspiracy theories. Rick Ross
-First of all, sir, let me express gratitude for what you are doing for former cult members, including me. As about people who discuss "gang-stalking" online appearing paranoid - I totally agree. But that is the very purpose of gangstalking - to evoke and develop paranoia in someone. Paranoia can be triggered and amplified by certain circumstances. So, gangstalkers, who educated themselves in psychiatry create those circumstances on purpose. Can you take a normal person and make a paranoiac out of him/her? The answer is - Yes. Just like you can take a normal person and make a cult devotee out of him/her. I mean those crazy cult devotees, including me in the past, used to be normal people, but by some set of psychological tricks they were turned into some crazy fanatics. The same way you can take a normal person, who just goes about his/her life, start following him/her, start interfering with his/her life, and this person turns into some paranoiac.
Tell me one more thing, why is everybody on Soka Gakkai discussion board so afraid to reveal their identity? What EXACTLY are they afraid of? Can you formulate it? Can you put your finger on it? If you try to formulate, it will sound like this: "people are afraid to reveal their identity, because they are afraid that if SGI knows their names, and knows that they are former members and criticize SGI, SGI will consider them traitors and will try to somehow get back at them, somehow make their life more difficult, somehow damage their lives". If you look carefully at this statement, it's very paranoid. Paranoid people think like that. "Oh, my God, I can't reveal my name, because this organization, this group of people will somehow get back at me". Pure paranoia. And yet, you actually encourage people on this board to keep their identities private.
If you don't like the term "gang stalking" (I don't like it either), I am not going to use it in my future posts. I totally understand your concern, that if you allow gang stalking discussions on your forums, it will quickly turn into one of those paranoid-sounding threads. I wouldn't want that to happen either. But I want to continue a discussion about SGI interfering with people's lives, hurting people. I want to research more about The Victims Of Soka Gakkai Association and their complains (I am sure not all of them are crazy), and I want to know why so many Japanese people complain that SGI has more and more influence in Japan and using this influence to hurt people's lives. But I promise that in the future I will be careful about my posts.
-The previous messages covered this. I am not interested in going back and forth with you. Rick Ross
But, I can understand his position. You see, he runs forums about cults. And, he doesn't hide his identity. Everybody knows who he is. So, if he admits that gang-stalking exists, and cults are involved in it, that will make him feel very afraid and uncomfortable, because cults also might target him. So, he simply denies it, it helps him to sleep at night.

I too have been driven out of a job, in fact on very day the U.S. public debt hit 100% of the GDP. Gang stalking isn't perversion of the system.

In Honolulu for a couple mounths it happened to me. I began to take pictures of them - they don't like that.
Too bad my online diary is gone on the Honolulu Advertiser. After reading maybe it's because I was a militant pedestrian. Ticketed 7 times, beat all 7. At $125 a pop that would've been a grand of extra taxes. I also would go up to cops and chastise them for false ticketing. Wrote this online
I don't live there anymore when the city apartment building where I had rent control rented to a gambling & meth gang in my building. I was the one who was asked to leave when I called the fire marshall on the fire hazard not-to-code building within a building......
Satori (author) from California on August 31, 2011:
Interesting quote, Iskra. Thanks for sharing it.
It may be assistive to remember the bright side of that dynamic: that a community of people united in a cause always has the elite tyrants at quite a distinct minority. It may take a bit for that to happen, but common principles are unifying because everyone can agree on them. By contrast, corruption falls apart due to its own lack of integrity. This means corruption and tyranny can only go so far.
My interpretation of this dynamic is that civilization's recovery is essentially inevitable. Whether people will reunite in a common cause based on universal principles isn't an "if", but merely a "when". And like a triage scenario, the duration it takes for that process to be complete determines the amount of suffering that occurs. Thus to alleviate suffering, we should remedy situations like this sooner, rather than later. To not do so is to become complicit in that suffering through our own Choice for inaction, as passive enablers of it.
That is why I bring things like this to peoples' attention. It's the only sane course I know. =)
Thank you for your readership, and your comment.

'Only the fighters have any hope of beating the system once it's at work against them,' he told me. 'Most people, fighters or not, are beaten in the end, though. It's . . . you see, I ... you finish up not knowing who you can trust. You can get no help because your story sounds so paranoid that you are thought a crank, one of those nuts who think the whole world is a conspiracy against them. It is a strange phenomenon. By setting up a situation that most people will think of as fantasy, these people can poison every part of a person's life. If they give in they go under. If they don't give in It's only putting off the day because if they fight, so much unhappiness will be brought to the people around them that there will likely come a time when even their families turn against them out of desperation. When that happens and they are without friends wherever they look, they become easy meat. The newspapers will not touch them'.

What motivates the stalkers? (1) Free cell phone and free monthly minutes, (2) Medicaid, (3) Food stamps, (4) Supplemental Social Security income (SSI), (5) Federal public housing assistance (Section 8), (6) The national free lunch program, (7) Temporary assistance to needy families (TANF) and (8) Low income home energy assistance program (LIHEP).
Paying the perps may very well be the reason that Social Security Administration claims that it's receipts now equal pay outs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzXOF4b3S_M&fea...
Satori (author) from California on April 06, 2011:
No, the people who are actually paid to do the stalking are typically bottom-rung lackeys who are attempting to "climb the ladder", or earn favoritism in their local chapter. They're often not even paid, but comped with drugs because that's cheaper for the system that organizes it all. I suspect the overarching system that co-ordinates the cause stalking between the local chapters is the Information Awareness Office, although they occasionally employ at least one proficient psychic from their numbers on more important targets. This allows them to keep tabs on an individual when they relocate, and to make that local chapter aware of the target.
Ironically, the Information Awareness Office and victimless anti-drug legislation could easily be dismantled by citizens generally, with or without cause stalking. But since they haven't been, the covert crime is enabled by them. As cause stalking gains more notoriety, it will be interesting to see where else that backlash goes.
Cindy on April 03, 2011:
I have been a target of organized stalking target for almost four years.In the last four years.The person who started this does not do any of the stalking but rather has groups do it.These groups are infiltrated so no matter where I go,I have to deal with them in some way. Besides the websites,what other resources can I include that would get the word out? I have notes upon notes of the tactics they use and the kind of demons they really are.I do not want to rant but the people who do the stalking are not to bright.

Satori (author) from California on February 13, 2011:
One of the more effective misperceptions these people convey is that it's possible for them to waste your time, but that you can't waste theirs.
In manifest reality, their own time is being wasted already. This is evident with just a bit of contemplation.
Another erroneous conclusion they imply by their behavior is that they never come to justice. That isn't so, but the reasoning there is a little esoteric so please bear with me.
In this world or any other, every act of Will produces effects and resultants. Most of the time we assume that the resultants are obvious and direct; a choice brings with it results. But on a metaphysical level, it's quite impossible for anyone to Choose something (as with these stalkers) and invest themselves in that Choice, without having it affect them most of all. Every act of Will is a Choice the chooser makes regarding who they think they are (since it's not possible to make a Choice without deciding on a set of priorities, and we define ourselves by what we value) and what our reality seems to be to us. So on a metaphysical and spiritual level, every Choice has resultants. Even when people are never "caught" by other people, this remains a constant.
Every moment, we make a Choice. Some of them are trifling, others call upon us to invest ourselves thoroughly in something. But every moment, we're redefining who we perceive ourselves to be, and what our reality seems like for us. That itself should be a tonic for the sort of apathy most Americans live within their whole lives. It's the apathy that says our Choices don't really matter that much, because nothing much actually comes of them. That is never so, and people cannot exist in stasis even when they Choose to do nothing, or nothing much. Living systems do not exist in stasis. Either they're growing, or they're decaying.
Next time you're harassed, keep that in mind. And be very clear on this: they've already "lost" as a result of the Choices they've made. It's between them and the basic nature of Creation. You just happen to be a bystander they fixate on while they create misery for themselves; it's not even about you. May that bring you some comfort.
Tomika on February 12, 2011:
Hello. I am being harrassed in this way. Mie started with workplace mobbing. I have a "professional" after me. She has been going into the stores I patronize an d puts the clerks up to doing street theatre/cozying up to me to being "friens" and then I find out the so called "friends" have since turned into a big surprise where they laugh at me by doing street theatre. One night I went for a walk - and I was mimicked all the way home. then another time I went to another restaurant and the owner walked up to me and brought someone to my table and the same chaos seemed to be erupting again - it starts with someone brought to my table and "introduced" then they try to cozy up and "report" to whomever it is/and then later laugh at me. So I start to "feel out the signals". Another night I went for a walk and a lady and I began to talk. She started saying things that were the same as the mobbing - I ended the conversation. I even have my family doing the same stuff. They thought it was funny. I don't . I am afraid. an now I have postpartum but my family find is funny. I don't find that funny. I feel so sad. It's a horrible abuse. Just horrible.

Look at the Quaids. They are being gang stalked. Publicist Leslie Michelson assasinated in a pro hit. Most American are quick to accuse? the CIA or some other top agency for such ops, unaware that in large cities cops have operated counter-subversion units (called Red Squads during Cold War) since the 1920's. If you encounter gang stalking, it's your local police department doing it. They use citizen groups such as C.O.P.S. instead of using uniformed cops and marked cars, other city and county employees? and corporate and utilities contractors. Best book on this subject is Frank Donner's Protectors of Privilege: Red Squads and Police Repression in Urban America.
Satori (author) from California on November 16, 2010:
What a great site! I appreciate the link, and I've added it to my "Relevant Links" section.
One of the recent justifications I've encountered - from the groups which conduct organized stalking, no less - is that it's designed to be a social catalyst to prompt the citizenry to work together to take back their political system. I'd like to not only take a moment to pass that along here, but also to debunk it at the same time. The organized stalking group I encountered claimed, at the end of the day, to be a group devoted to spiritual and moral improvement within societies. And in several areas, organized stalking included, they've systematically decimated societal structures (including American law and politics over the last 237 years) with the justification that the ends justify the means. That you get improved social moral and spiritual growth by decimating the structures which have been created to allow that in the first place. That of course doesn't wash. In my case, the group claimed to be the Freemasons, furthering their agenda through several layers of guises and obfuscation. They may or may not be their actual group affiliation, but if they're not the symbology the group's been using seems to align pretty well. For more information, see my article, "The House That Couldn't Stand: Why the Masons are Going Under".
They also seem to be responsible for lowering the societal values in the American mainstream, and in subcultural niches like the African-American ccommunity and the Gay Pride community. (Gay Pride being a tacky, shoddy version of the Gay Rights movement and designed, evidently, to subvert and reverse it.)

Satori (author) from California on November 11, 2010:
Hey Thomas, thanks for your comment.
In describing to me what it's like for someone who hasn't encountered it happening to them, you've just given me a really great idea. Wouldn't it be great to have somewhere online that people who were currently targeted could go and post their location, and people in the area who aren't sure whether it's actually real could go there and find out. Either lots of people would suddenly find out it's happening, or these people being targeted would get some respite from them, because this sort of thing can only happen under secrecy. It would have to leave them alone, or expose the whole nasty business.
Not sure how to implement something like that, but what a concept!
Thomas Thompson on November 10, 2010:
Most of the information about this, weither it's called Gang stalking or multi-staliing or cause stalking, on line seems to be disinformation. It's almost always written from a far left radical or feminist prospective that quite frankly makes it sounds flase and like propaganda. However I don't think it's all false, and disinformation is just that disinfo. I think there is a certain amount of truth to some aspects of it mixed in with all the disinfo online one finds on this topic. I for one however am not willing to totally throw teh baby out with the bathwater because of disinfo.

Satori (author) from California on May 21, 2010:
Jimmy, I find that to be a pretty good approach. Affirming what is rather than worrying too much about what isn't can be very healthy, and it's more or less my approach to things. You can't live your life effectively worrying about everything that might be out there, and so I try to deal with people and situations assuming the best about them. It takes a lot to get me to be suspicious not because I'm naive, but just because I try not to think the worst about things unless it's pretty blatantly obvious.
I have that in common with a lot of people, but I think what I do somewhat differently is the following:
I make sure that I'm not being a contributing factor to problems like these. Government corruption? I go research the law. Social decay? I check myself and make sure I'm not actively or passively enabling it. For example, I'm homeless at the moment and working online because I'm off the grid (no ID, no Social, etc.) rather than subsidize federal corruption with my taxes. That'd be pretty unconscionable of me, particularly with the videos up on YouTube showing some of the concentration camps that've been put up around the country, just waiting. If everybody made sure that they weren't enabling the problems, it's unlikely we'd have any. But then I go beyond that.
I go out of my way and voluntarily promote healthy values and social awareness of problems, just like I've done in this Hub. While making sure not to compromise on enjoying life to the fullest, or encroaching on anyone else's ability to do so, I alert other people to what's going on. It used to be called giving "hue and cry", and was one of the practices required of a responsible American citizen. I just do it because it's right.
Then beyond that, I try to find ways to help people to put a stop to this kind of thing. (It's an extra bonus when I can find ways to do that while getting ahead personally.) A good example might be Wolfpack, which you can read about here: http://www.cambrianhouse.com/idea/idea-promoter/id...
Finally, I actively encourage other people to enjoy themselves to the fullest. Not only is that a lot of fun, it contributes to a healthier society. Even if that's just my little corner of it.
Thanks for your readership Jimmy, and for your Comment.
Jimmy on May 21, 2010:
If gangstalking is real, and its possible, even if it is totally uneconomical and unsustainable, i think it can be countered by the following:
Joining groups of like minded individuals in the community,not internet based or with predominantly internet based communication.
Stay close to family.
And remember a golden rule of reality - If you do not observe it, it doesn't exist. Don't connect with them, don't acknowledge them, and they don't exist. Thats the ultimate weapon. Carry on with your life as normal and enjoy it to the full
Target5000 on May 01, 2010:
I am a TI. I have just recently learned about all of these things. In general, my experience has been workplace mobbing, lose of job obviously, community mobbing, rumors, attacks to my car from what I know and say in general. I was romantically involved with a perp for 3 years named James Mwangi Thumu. We met at a Femi Kuti concert. To reel me in, he lied about his occupation, where he lived, worked, even age at times just to mess with me. Everything seemed probable at the time. Problems occurred when I would ask questions...if you live here, where are your clothes, things, something personal? I realized later, I was never to have this information because he knew that problems would arise, he KNEW what was going to do and I potentially would complain to the police which I did. But with no address, I was unable to get a restraining order. I even hired two private detectives who basically just took my money. I was told by one PI that he hadn't had time to really do anything because he was watching football. Now he knew where I lived, worked, I got smashed windows, threats, harassing letter and went to the police who would do nothing. I even got a phone call from the Montclair police officer who said he was trying to help James out with calling me. Anyway, these things can get out of control and do and will. That is why organizing back is so very important or you will always be helpless. If the perps have your name, name them back!

person at work, who was a loudmouth bully, with several family members still in law enforcement. My stalking started about 2001 and was generic. Mine was a gun grab, by law enforcement. I believe the men behind the curtain are from Weed and Seed. All the power, talent, financing and staffing under one roof. They are doing social cleansing. This is law enforcements dream machine.

I became a target for this crap in about 2002-2003 after disputes with a supervisor at DaimlerChrysler (no longer exists) HAH HA!!! Anyway, disputes over coffee breaks started a mini-war that led to this disturbed ex-law enforcement A-hole to give my name over to one of these hate organizations. The hate is global...it has no boundaries. All the above mentioned behaviors happened around me over 10,000 times in concert with DEW weapon attacks in my sleep. It all started in the community I lived in which was more than happy to comply in a big way. I was thrown out of almost every business I went in for no reason. For your knowledge, these areas which complied so well with the tortures are Rochester, Rochester Hills and Troy Michigan. particularly ruthless and nasty, then laugh about it, there are churches all over these communities but it all just a "good Christian front." These are EVIL PEOPLE. They put money and hate first in their life, not God. I am very amazed I still have my health after such a long ordeal. Quitting all alcohol and caffeine has a lot to do with it. These a-holes follow me worldwide and I have been harassed in: Nelson, New Zealand; Nijmegen, Holland; Arran Isle, Scotland; Brighton, England and Rek, Iceland. I realize now the airport is a beehive for these butt heads, they like to provoke you there because A)they know you are tired from jet lag, B) If you react you can be "scooped up" as a threat. C) Missing your next flight may strand you in their custody, D) Starts "a record" of misbehavior. This is no joke, the world has gone to hell as long as this goes on and the man who got me thrown into this is a known dirt-bag and much hated scum-bag. My life was good and fun before this. Now I have no future and trust no-one. America is dead in my eyes and the rest of the world is just a sold out compliant puppet in their control. These other people in other places don't even know me and treat me like I ran their dog over with a car. These are the creulest criminals you'll ever find who want you destroyed, or homeless and even desire you to commit suicide. They should all be identified and taken to a firing squad. I'd be happy to be one of riflemen.

Intel on January 06, 2010:
The truth of the matter is, this stuff does occur and believe it or not, as some groups have peace officers, state employees, children, etc. etc. to indulge in the game. As a victim of Organized Stalking, as my situation follows the unique pattern since 2007, or "CAUSE" stalking, the object of the game is to start as many wild fires as possible, get a whirlwind going, not know where it is associated to and by whom, as well as get community involved, which in turn assists to establish character assassination in and out of work, with the end result of career loss and home.
Paranoia is a big asset to instill, but is not such a successful tool, when used on veterans who understand counter-intelligence. When collecting statistical information and baiting yourself, you understand the natural flow of things which in turn allows the establishment for setting links.
Cause Stalkers, try to tap into every personal aspect of your life such as internet, cellular, and following campaigns. They use unassociated vehicles in different cities, as I suggest that people make attempts to report circumstances logically to the police, just in case something esclalates, and you pop one of them. Most of these people have little or no common knowledge of who and why they are doing what they are doing to you. They have no life, and are mostly degenerates of society who go along with group flow for acceptance. They are mentally impaired and socially disturbed perhaps in sexual and professional standards.
Futhermore, the game of sensitation is a big part of the group, which fortunately for me, I know who my opponents are as I have hours and hundreds of pictures, even employers and addresses. But I caution, do not follow, chase, or PC 422 (California Penal)(threaten), which there is always a handful of witnesses to encounter your deeds for criminal prosecution. These idiots run in pairs and numbers, hardly solo, since they may see a baseball bat across the chops in the future.
Organizational Stalking is like little brush fires, I recommend that you let them light up and burn. Face the fire. Let nature takes it course, then set them up one by one. It takes time, even years, but, in the end, a war of attrition is not won over night. In closing, look at each aspect like a game. Hopefully they will entrap themselves where you can drop the hammer. They are too stupid to think on their own, and usually the ones pulling the strings are more incompetent then the next.
In closing, I am aware that this literature will be viewed by my adversaries, and in turn they will watch more CSI with a Starbucks in hand, and keep pace with me yet again. Perhaps they jerkoff to my case file and picture? To all those who are potential victims, my hat comes off to you. Stay true to yourself, and bide your time, and justice will prevail whether in or out of a court room.

I also went to another city! Me and my mom was shopping, guess what? My mom spotted them, arent those the guys that live up the street from us! 4 of them got out of a car, and went into the store we just left out of it! Needless to say the next time I went into that store, I got very nasty reception! Most people either ignore me, with a pitying look or they start coughing and texting! Watching me, or whispering, all the things you mentioned!
Katelnine on December 13, 2009:
The same has been happening to me! I thought 1 of a few. It is because I turned down this guy for marriage, unbeknowest to me, he was a very rich and powerful person. So, I havent had any peace in my life, they follow me too. Cough at me and everyting you said, even had friends that had their ear to ground and told me what you said, sadly he wants me to (off)myself. Believe me I didnt do nothing to him, I didnt wish him bad, nor was I ever intimate with him. However, he hated me fro not taking his offer for marriage, and my life has been hell ever since. How do you know if you are being stalked, sometimes the stalkers make the same comment he made to me 1 year ago. They also have mentioned his name under their breath at times, in a cheeky way. The news spread fast and everyone knows my names and whispers about me. They cough and do all the things you said, point and watch me. You layed everything out perfectly, it is funny how we both or women and the other girl allison. Maybe the same happened to you, without you knowing!

NWO is in the next gear. A secret crime wave is sweeping the US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and most NATO countries. Americans are now being terrorized by the Red Squads in local police departments for free speech using federal funds, citizen watch groups (COP, COPP, TIPS, etc.), city and county employees and vehicles and corporate employees and vehicles to set them up for incarceration, institutionalization, homelessness and suicide in what the ACLU describes as more Stasi-like than the FBI’s Cointelpro (1956-1971). Look up “gang stalking” and “targeted individuals” on YouTube.

Exposing the secret system of control and CIA mind control experiments
About 10% of the world has been raised into a centuries old secret system of control that goes back to secret societies such as the Knights Templar. For example, this 10% could stalk an unwitting target by using covert techniques that they discuss in their secret meetings to spy on and psychologically profile/harass a subject which used to fool people into thinking they are under a spell or curse. The priest who may have even been in on it would then perform an exorcisism the subject and magically all the strange things happening to them would go away and the subject would be left with a strong subconscious message to trust the priest and go to church. Remember this is despite the fact that it was all a staged act by a secret society using the tricks of mind control. These secret societies realized that not only could they control the other 90% of the people but they could even use their dark psychologically-oriented tactics on their own members who turned on them with success. Thus it was the perfect system of control as it kept 100% of the people in line. As these societies expanded to keep people under mind control, the occultists reached increasingly for technology in their pursuits. The occultists themselves would raise their children while keeping their dark arts in secrecy until they felt their child was ready to have a psychological occultist attack conducted on them as part of an initiation rite. Let us define an occultist as one who practices the dark arts of psychological (which includes financial) manipulation on individuals, groups, organizations or even animals. In modern times they are the CIA and military intelligence community of (super)spies, assassins/mercenaries, (super)criminals and assets/tools/covert operatives/professional liars.
Come World War II and the horrendous crimes committed on human subjects by the Nazis in the name of research. At the end of World War II, the US intelligence community imported 2,000 of the top German Nazi scientists into the CIA and NASA. The CIA experiment MKULTRA (Manufacturing Killers Utilizing Lethal Tradecraft Requiring Assassinations) helped perfect the new form of mind control they were to use on the world. MKULTRA involved 149 different fields ranging from biochemistry, pharmaceuticals to neuroscience. Some misinformation to see through is that remote viewing is not a paranormal telepathic ability. Remote viewing is simply planting an x-ray style camera (similar to the ones newly introduced at airport security) in the walls of a home allowing someone to surveil a subject full time without the subject having any idea that it is going on. All modern day elite are programmed using such a fancy mind control program. They have a remote viewer which is some CIA psychology-expert voyeuristic pervert constantly watching and analyzing the subject while leaking information to certain sources for use in subconscious suggestion and manipulation campaigns. They will constantly be tricked (often without them even realizing) into living in homes or renting apartments in communities of full time covert operatives so that the psychological training program can continue. Subjects will have some sort of childhood emotional or physical trauma which could range from sexual abuse to a repetitive strain injury which will be used to control their behavior.
One such covert operative community research lab is at 1717 17th Ave, San Francisco, CA 94122-4501
Another covert operative community research lab is located near Faxon Ave and Montana Ave, San Francisco, CA 94112
If you cannot deduce that this is the biggest secret society holds using your own logic then you may forever be a confused sheep lost in the jungle of CIA disinformation, misinformation, and fake opposition.
Satori (author) from California on September 25, 2009:
Regarding community-oriented policing, after a moment's thought I'm almost in favor of it - just not at all as it currently stands. Remember in the Old West, when the Sheriff was the one with the lawful authority to enforce the law and he could deputize people? That's America - at least as it was built. But of course there was accountability and transparency... not to mention a sane set of laws stemming from valid authority, and people enforcing them who had the lawful authority to do so (the Sheriff and those he deputized). Police officers were originally meant to be officials, office workers behind a desk somewhere. The position was gradually altered - jump them up in soldier suits, give them guns and many of them a surly, bullying attitude, and then reshuffle the whole kit'n'caboodle under the executive branch of the federal government, working under the President (in his role of Commander in Chief of the military, which is about all that remains under our ongoing martial law scenario) like any other sector of the armed forces. In one of his bigger moves in office that never made it onto the news, Bush again used the Constitution for a dartboard when he signed the Military Commissions Act
before leaving office, purporting to give any President the lawful authority to swap out police for federal troops if local police officers weren't effective enough - and the President gets to decide when that is. Referring to police as "peace officers" never made so much sense. Strangely enough we haven't heard Obama rushing to reporters, clamoring to fix this roughly Buick-sized hole in the Constitution left by Bush. With the U.S. stockpiling military hardware from all over the world that's specifically designed to quell mass uprising (tanks, chemical weapons trucks, etc.) and staffing so many military personnel and their families on military bases that they're reduced to living in tents, I'm sure we can trust that this is just a matter of simple oversight on President Obama's part and that he will address the legislation - as well as the concentration camps being built on U.S. soil - in his own due time.

There are tons of information on corrupted police officers in community oriented policing unit yet I fail to find A SINGLE PIECE OF NEWS on community oriented policing volunteers even thought there are millions of them. They might be the saints of society- not even a nuisance filed against them. It's like saying only the General of the Army is fighting a war and no soldiers, this is because there is no soldier is in uniform. This is exactly what’s happening with community oriented policing where the volunteers have zero accountability – no uniform, no badge yet they join in groups to “police” our community. Whenever you have groups with zero accountability, you are bound to have gross abuse.
Anonymous on September 04, 2009:
This is an organized effort by the elite and CIA to train government spies. Your friends and family generally are all actors and the stalking campaign forces you to act and think like a spy. I am surprised how many people think the elite and the government could throw money down the tubes like this for no financial reason. They want you to be their elite programmed slaves. The CIA notes that it takes 6 years of very expensive psychological training to make a spy. Truth is it has been a life one is born into for at least the last 70 years. For one to two million dollars a year, it is not hard to "Truman Show" anyone you like. The same people can be used to target many people and it is far more efficient that way. It is simply far more prevalent now when they are doing it to hundreds of thousands of people. That is the "program" that Jason Bourne refers to in the Bourne Identity. So enjoy your life as an asset or tool because this has been going on all over the world in a highly secretive manner for generations. Remember there is a financial incentive at the root of all this. There is a reason for the profile most targeted individuals match as well as the reason they are generally forced to live very independent and socially isolated lives.
Satori (author) from California on August 26, 2009:
James, thanks for Commenting again. =)
As someone who's been the target of organized stalking, I'm inclined to think your assessment is correct. I'd add a fourth approach to your list, that of silencing a target through intimidation. I was stalked after looking up sovereign citizenship information online. I guess it's not that hard to imagine, being noticed for something like that. It can be moderately expensive to arrange this for someone, but probably not when you're one of the big players controlling the economy. Doubtless though, it's still probably cheaper to do a) temporarily, and b) in a downturned economy. But even doing it temporarily will usually intimidate someone enough to make them knuckle under. After all, the organized stalking against them could be picked up again any time.
By paying cause stalkers off with money, drugs and opportunities, these bigger players can use what control they have of society in terms of the economy and the political system, and leverage it to gain even more by using the morally weaker members of that society to enforce their regime. I'm disinclined to think that it will stop after the economy picks back up again, but rather be used to continually and essentially invisibly quell the domestic scene, as a check against resistance to whatever arbitrary agenda the political system has by then. (Let's face it, societally we're practically back to serfs and land-owning nobles in terms of freedoms these days.) Once in place, society will seem rather peaceful... on the surface, and dissent will become essentially impossible from that point on. Society can be shaped and molded to the whim of whoever pulls the puppet strings, and no one will be able to say any differently. This creates a hellish nightmare scenario that is no worse than society deserves - having chosen it, and allowed it to continue. (And it most likely will - one generally plans ahead and closes the barn door /before/ the cattle have escaped.)
I think it's freaking beautiful, myself. I'm not particularly concerned about it for my own part, because there are bigger authorities out there than those string-pullers, and much bigger ponds than this backwater little pocket dimension. Man's law initially emulated natural law for a reason - because it must, in order to remain functional. When it doesn't, man's law is simply in error... and there's really need to explain to someone that they've failed to take, say, gravity into account. They'll find out for themselves soon enough, and there's certainly no need to get unpleasant about it. Something either works, or it does not. In larger terms, either way all things only serve to further the good.
James Jameson on August 25, 2009:
Satori, let me try again with much smaller text. What I was trying to post previously was taken from here and there, but after a couple of months of looking into it, I now know enough to write my own.
Gang stalking is NOT a covert investigation, but this is the lie that is fed to the community along with defamation of the target to gain their cooperation. I believe that at least half of their targets are bloggers. The covert motive of stalking is far different than what a community might be led to believe. Covert motive is to silence a target by way of:
(1) Inceration - provoke the target into attacking the stalker(s)
(2) Institutionalization - get the target to complain enough about the group stalking
(3) Suicide - Depress and despair the target enough to commit suicide
With the USDOL is forecasting double digit unemployment rates ahead, it remains to be seen whether this is a temporary measure to get thru the soup kitchen days or something permanent. Thanks.
Concerned Citizen on August 14, 2009:
Your blog is informative and similar ones are becoming the norm as the United States and many other countries are melded into a world government scenario in which the middle classes are treated as little more than heads of cattle.
Organized stalking is a crime of vigilantism - the sign of an abjectly corrupted government and a lawless and decayed society.
The real loss of our privacy has come from the types of spy satellite arrays that the global Intel community uses in which to illegally spy upon us.
The technology available today also enables such agencies (including the NSA) to remotely track citizens by way of their own Electromagnetic fields. Something the government does not want us to know about, simply because in countries that claim to be Democratic, such spying would be anathema to freedom, and indicative of a shadow government furtively controlling its people through such a police state - what we now have in the European countries as well as the United States.
The best documentation available in the modern day remains that which is contained in the federal lawsuit filed by former NSA associate John St. Clair Akwei, against the National Security Agency.
This lawsuit can be found on most search engines, and should be read by the citizens of every country, since it describes technology which can both decode and manipulate human thoughts by way of remote means.

Thanks for that info, Will2BFree.
I think a lot of the time, people get intimidated by what's going on because these people seem to "get away with it" time and time again - nobody bringing them to justice or accountability. It certainly seems to work. But there's a lost concept, expressed in the now-obscured common law, regarding the Derivation of Authority. That is, everybody works for someone, and everyone who got their power and control in the world is accountable to some higher-up. Not just human - unless you're an athiest, there is always, at bottom, some final accountability. Some metaphysical wildcard at the bottom of the deck, that sends their whole agenda into dismay - and that is unavoidable in their current course. I've only recently discovered what that is, and how it works, and why it's not only inevitable but in fact manifesting right now, each and every moment. So rest assured, there is always a greater authority, and when what man's system writes is not in harmony with that greater authority but rather in conflict with it... well. The tail doesn't wag the dog, now does it?
Thank for your your Comment, and your readership.
Will2BFree on February 09, 2009:
Thank you for allowing the posting of material without a valid return email address. In the beginning, all resistance movements must work within a cloak of secrecy. In the beginning, resistance members are few, have little in the way of resources, and are easily neutalized without anonymity.Each of us (targeted individuals) must be strong like Solomon, even to keep breathing in the face of this worldwide, organized, automated harassment, squashing of dissidence, and general authoritarianism.In addition to the political silencing of dissidents, individuals around the world are being put under the same sort of circumstance as that which Leopoldo describes for himself. People like Leopoldo are being added to a rather poorly vetted database of those considered "undesirable".Societally undesirable means whomever the sadistic mob wants to abuse at any given moment. A target's name was likely put into the database for "spitting on the street", (in some cases, literal meaning) or for no bloody real reason at all. It is a representation of mob lynching gone wild, and is spiraling out of control.From my position at the bottom of the fish spear barrel, it is sometimes difficult to see what's happening down the street. (This, of course, is true of all targeted individuals). However; it's becoming clear by means of repetitive inductions, deductions and similar conclusions, that what is happening involves several tiers of operation.There exists a core group of people, including a number of technocrats, who "run" the mobs, community groups, etc. They supply the technical device and service requirements, run the databases and other software, manage things, and make sure that the "lynching system" is always up to par.Members of the public are solicited to participate within the "program". Everyone has a little sadists hidden away in the recesses of the darker part of their being, but it is stronger in some people than others, and the program directors seek out the people most willing to inflict pain on others without remorse, so as to minimize any witness against them in the future (by those who would show remorse, regret, etc)Unfortunately, the directors find a lot of recruits. In my opinion, up to twenty percent of the population is currently engaged in the program, although some of them may not yet see the sadistic program for what it really is. Many of them believe that they are contributing to the "war on [fill in current soundbite here]".The whole organization is controlled by gps-located cellphones, and the automotive equivalent of same (That nifty little device that warns you of upcoming road hazards, if you are willing to allow your vehicle to be tracked in order to have the applicable service)People in the "program", have one of these little devices, or just a cell phone (also outfitted with real-time tracking), so the that lynching system's database (on the back end) has real-time location entries for every cellphone and automotive device in the "program", and these entries are updated continually and automatically.On the targeted individuals end, he is being tracked, and is probably aware of this, but does not know how it is being accomplished. A bug is placed on a persons automobile if such a person has ever been placed in the system's database. The bug can be made to look like a chunk of rust, or a legitimate automotive component, and contains a battery that can last up to ten years (my speculation). It cannot be found by electronic means because the pulse it emits is too short. In the blind, no spectrum analyzer will ever find it for this reason.As the target moves around the streets, the system's database has location entries for both the targeted individual and for all of the "program members" who might be in close proximity.That, of course, is the beauty of their system, in that it is not necessary for them to "send cars" to harass and to chase targets around town ... there are so many "program members", such that one or more is always within striking distance. This is why targets sometimes feel like they are being "swarmed". There may not even have been a plan to create the swarm, but it was created because many "program members" happened to be in the area at a particular time.If a "program member" is within a certain distance from a target (as determined by the system), a little beep goes off on their little dashboard mounted gps-located device, and a little red dot shows the location (relative to them) of the target, along with suggestions relating to how best to handle (read harass) the target, and a little photograph of same. It's all automatic ... immediate ... dastardly.Consider what happens to your job prospects if, as an unfortunate target, your potential employer's cellphone rings during your interview. He looks down upon the gps-enabled phone (trying to be discrete), and notices a little red dot (your car in the lot).It is this aspect of mobile computing power that makes this author curse the day the computer was born. It was inevitable that computing technology would ultimately be uses by mankind to destroy mankind. Think about what Hitler could have accomplished with this technology. Sprechen sie Deutch, meine freunden?An international company, of sorts, is making very big profits running the database(s), providing the equipment, etc. We require a class action lawsuit against the manufacturers who actively support these various operations (by knowing to what use the products are put, and by whom) and the operators of the computer-backed cell network infrastructure for the same reason. With twenty percent of the population engaging in the described activities, the volume of stalking/tracking traffic must be very large, it must be blatantly obvious to many of those engaged in the wireless networking industry, and should be obvious to the government whose only sworn duty is to protect innocent people (99% of targeted individuals) from what has been described in this memo.Like the Jews of WWII Germany, millions of oppressed individuals are being harassed on a daily basis, for no legitimate reason whatsoever (not to imply that there could be any reason, outside of the legal system)Unlike the Jews of WWII, the current targets of organized oppression are being harassed by an automated, computer driven machine that is relentless in it's pursuit of the innocent. Hitler smiles in his grave. - Will2BFree

gangstalking, thank you for pasting that.
It did get clipped at the end, though. Perhaps you'd like to post a Comment with a link to that information instead?
gangstalking on December 24, 2008:
Gang Stalking is a covert investigation that is opened on an individual. The individual is then placed under overt and covert forms of surveillance. The person is followed around 24/7. Foot patrols and vehicle patrols are used to follow the Individual around, as part of the monitoring process. During these patrols a one handed sign language is used to assist the citizen informants with communicating to each other.
Gang Stalking is a systemic form of control, which seeks to control every aspect of a Targeted Individuals life. Gang Stalking has many similarities to workplace mobbing, but takes place outside in the community. It called Gang Stalking, because the target is followed around and placed under intrusive and directed surveillance by groups of organised “Covert Human Intelligence Sources” also known as Citizen Informants 24/7.
Many Targeted Individuals are harassed and placed under surveillance in this way for months or even years before they realise that they are being targeted by an organised protocol of harassment.
What happens during this Gang Stalking surveillance is very similar to what happened to many innocent individuals in the former East Germany or Activists and Dissidents in Russia. Many innocent people in the former East Germany would be targeted for these harassment programs, and then their friends, family, and the community at large would be used to monitor, prosecute, and harass them. In Russia it was used by the state to declare activist, dissidents or anyone they thought to be an enemy of the state as mentally unfit and many were institutionalised using this form of systemic control.
The closest thing to Gang Stalking that democratic countries have seen before this is McCarthyism, Cointelpro, and RED SQUAD programs. Red Squad programs were used for monitoring, and harassment of various groups. They have been in place for over a hundred years, and they also employed Covert Human Intelligence Sources.
Civilian Spies, also known as “Covert Human Intelligence Sources” are recruited from every level and sector of society. Just like with Cointelpro investigations, everyone in the targets life is made a part of this ongoing never ending, systemic psychological harassment and manipulation of the target. These actions are specifically designed to control the target and to keep them in line. These actions are also designed to destroy the target over years, make them look crazy and leave them with no form of support.
For the targets of this harassment, Gang Stalking is experienced as a covert psychological, emotional and physical attack, that is capable of immobilizing and destroying a target over time. For the state it’s a way to keep the targets in line, control them, or destroy them.
Worldwide programs of control and conformity have been used with equal success and lethality. What we are seeing now is a global co-ordinated and organised effort of control and conformity. Many countries around the world are currently using a model of policing called: Community Oriented Policing. It's described as a systemic approach to policing. It focuses on instilling a sense of community within a geographically located neighborhood. Communities come together and discuss what values they would like to have in their community, community development, and it's also a time to discuss any problems that might be happening in a specific area. If a problem is identified an investigation might be opened. These local programs in many countries have been forming partnerships with other government run programs at, provincial, state and federal levels. Reports of Gang Stalking are not only coming in from democratic countries, but they are coming in from many other countries as well.
The modern day systemic form of control could only be funded at higher governmental levels, just like it has in other societies where these similar types of harassment programs have been implemented. It's all part of a system of control and conformity that has been in place for many years. A system of control with many local groups and appendages taking part.What are the goals of Gang Stalking?
The goal is to isolate the target from all forms of support, so that the target can be set up in the future for arrest, institutionalisation, or forced suicide. Other goals of this harassment is to destroy the targets reputation and credibility. Make the target look crazy or unstable.
Other goals involve sensitizing the target to every day stimuli’s as a form of control, which is used to control targets when they get out of line. Once the target is sensitized, the Citizen Informants have an easier time identifying the Targeted Individual in public.
These programs are designed to make the targets of this harassment vulnerable, they want to make them destitute. The secondary goals seems to be to make the target homeless, jobless, give them a breakdown, and the primary goals seems to be to drive the target to forced suicide, just like what they did with some of the targets of Cointelpro. It's a useful way of eliminating perceived enemies of the state.Who gets targeted?
Targeting can happen to anyone in society. In the past primary targets of programs such as Cointelpro have been minorities. Targeting however can happen to anyone. Individuals are often targeted for being outspoken, whistle blowers, dissidents, people who go up against wealthy corporations, woman’s groups, (single) women, anti-war proponents, individuals identified or targeted as problems at these community meetings, and other innocent individuals. The majority of the targets are often not aware that they are being targeted in this way. When a target moves, changes jobs, the harassment still continues. Every time the target moves, the same information, lies, and slander will be spread out into the new community and the systemic monitoring and harassment will continue.Who takes part?
People from all walks of life are being recruited to be the eyes and ears of the state. People from all races, ages, genders. Every sector of society that you can think of is a part of this. Civilian Spies/Snitches include, but are not limited to: General labourers, the wealthy, bikers, drug dealers, drug users, street people, punks, hip hop culture, KKK, black activists, church groups, youth groups, Fire Fighters, police officers, lawyers, health care workers, store keepers, maids, janitors, cable installers, phone repair persons, mail carriers, locksmiths, electricians, etc. There really is no minimum or maximum age range. An article came out recently in the Uk, saying they were recruiting children as young as eight years old to be Covert Human Intelligence Sources.
Some of these citizens might be recruited via programs such as, Citizen Corp, Weed and Seed, Citizens On Phone Patrol, (COPP), City Watch, T.I.P.S. Many started with good intentions to help patrol and monitor their cities and neighbourhoods. Others are recruited via their families, others at school, others at work. Since every sector, class, race in society takes part, recruitment is multi-faceted.
Many do not understand or care that the end consequence of this harassment protocol is to destroy a person.Why people participate in Gang Stalking?
There are many reasons that someone takes part in this activity.
1. Some do it for the sense of power that it gives them.
2. Others do this as a way to make friends and keep friends. It’s something social and fun for them to do. Many in society use the one handed sign language to communicate and it's very effective in breaking down race, gender, age, social barriers.
3. Others are forced or black mailed by the State or the police into taking part.
4. They are told that they are part of homeland or national security and being used to help keep and eye on dangerous or emotionally disturbed individuals. They see themselves as heroic spies for the state.
Civilian spies can come from a variety of differen

I've heard of the V Chip, but it was in the context of censoring television viewing. I had no idea that when some people mentioned the V chip, they were talking about the proposed RFID's to identify people, locate their GPS co-ordinates, and allow (or dis-allow) them to buy or sell through them. My understanding is that it's in store once governments globalise under the U.N., a front for the banking interests countries owe their national debts to. Bankers controlling the entire system, massive high-tech warrantless surveillance, and if you say the wrong thing (or don't do the "right" thing), they'll take you out of the economic loop with a couple of keystrokes... good luck buying food. I've heard of that.
They may very well be going in that direction. In the States, the timetable looks like economic collapse, martial law and totalitarianism, with the estimated 800 concentration and death camps already up and running - just waiting - on U.S. soil. No totalitarianism lasts for long - it takes more resources to utterly control than it ever produces - but evidently the plan is for it to last long enough for the U.N. to use it as a pretext to come sweeping in like a kight in tinfoil armor and play the Good Guy when they save us from it with U.N. peacekeeping forces, and use it as an argument in favor of a one-world government under its rule, founded on ecology rather than freedom. In the meantime, the ecological devestation is being allowed to get out of hand just for that reason, and the U.S. is doing double-duty for the U.N. by playing Dennis the Menace to the world and attacking countries - the worse it behaves, the better the U.N. will appear when it "rescues" us from it, and in the meantime it can attack countries, either installing a U.N.-friendly regime or forcing them to defend themselves by raising an army - and borrowing money from those same bankers in order to do it. Either way, the bankers "win".
This is what the evidence I've collected suggests - and despite the fact that it all fits, I'm disinclined to believe it. Because nobody's that stupid, and nobody wants to break the world - or make everyone one-dimensional consumeristic morons - in order to rule over it. It would be like ruling a Tic-Tac-Toe board... there'd be no point. It would be too lame to be interesting.
Thanks for your readership, and your comments.

Have you read and heard about the "V-Chip" Lots about it on U-Tube. Check it out. There's one that talks about how the gov't is doing all sort of things to make people afriad (such as 9-11) so that eventually the gov't can get control of each person of the world. One way is through this V-chip. Paranoia is actually where the U.S. gov't wants the people and as far as I can see-it's working very well.
Read Rev in the Bible. Talks all about what will happen-and it is!!
Clive Fagan from South Africa on September 04, 2008:
Wow this paints a scary picture of Modern day life in the USA. It certainly smacks of the conspiracy of wealth and the illuminati as a potential world-wide uber-government.
Very interesting hub and comments. food for thought.
Satori (author) from California on September 03, 2008:
Thanks for your support, Chef Jeff. Just being out on the street, open to attacks from street folk, without the income necessary to get dental work, and getting me bounced from soup kitchens the same way I'd get bounced from job sites, has done a lot of physical harm to me and my property. But because it's indirect, it's tough to pinpoint to the justice system - assuming they cared enough to do anything. It's all a matter of plausible deniability.
As far as counter-harassment, there are a few options available that don't involve being just as obtuse and destructive as they are. In my Big Idea Books hub, I've referenced a book about a kinesiological technique that can pinpoint anyone, anywhere, and find them. It takes two people with well-functioning nervous systems in an environment free from extraneous stimuli to do - but I neither have the two people, a nervous system that functions well (some days my muscles spasm from nervous twitches due to all the stress), nor an environment free from extraneous stimuli. Turning people on to lesser-known problems, and lesser-known tools, is a lot of what I enjoy doing on HubPages. That, and it's a way to bring some minute amount of money in while staying off the grid.
The functional version of the "when a little worker bee gets out of line, the entire hive is endangered" (or, as I usually refer to it, "It takes a village to braise a child.") is that it takes a functional society to make anything work, even one person's life. So I try to contribute to that here, doing what I can.
I've tried to increase readership to my civic-minded heads-up articles using a new approach I'm trying out on PledgeBank. Have a look.
If enough people bump this stuff up on Digg, more people across the internet will see it and read it - and then we'll have a society where people are clued in to this kind of thing.
In the short-to-mid-term future, I think this kind of harassment, at least against the people that are currently being harassed, will only last until they round people up for the death camps. There are between 200 and 800 concentration camps built and waiting in the U.S. alone, with some spotted in Canada. Thank Halliburton and other government contractors - they've already admitted to them, as has the government. They're placed near train lines, and we've already got would-be government contractors coming forward admitting that the US government has approached them with a contract to weld shackles into the double-decker trains usually used to haul cars across country - you can't see in. See my "Why is the U.S. military camped out in our newsrooms?" Hub for more info, and video footage. The UN already has provisions on its books for such a situation, and after the initial round-up, when they've got everything settled down and bring things back to some semblance of normalcy, organized stalking is a great Orwellian method to use to keep everyone in line, while keeping things looking prim and proper like something out of a 1950's-era sitcom. Even people who know it's going on around them won't want to look at it too hard, lest they become targets too - and find that their credit cards or RFID's no longer work.
Thanks again for your good wishes.
Chef Jeff from Universe, Milky Way, Outer Arm, Sol, Earth, Western Hemisphere, North America, Illinois, Chicago. on September 03, 2008:
Well, Satori, I certainly would not put it past the likes of Bush and his cronies to stalk people, or maybe some people who tink they are being patriotic by doing so. After all, when a little worker bee gets out of line, the entire hive is endangered - isn't that their mentality? I think it is - conformity carried to the utmost degree in the name of "national security" or whatever the cause celebre is at any particular time.
So, I wish I had some suggestion for you, some magic idea that would stop the harassment, but all I can think of is possible ways to endure it, to not give in. And then let's hope they don't take it to the next degree, physical harm to either you or your property.
Too bad you couldn't get a lot of friends together and counter-harass.
Satori (author) from California on September 03, 2008:
Hi Amanda. I'm certainly meeting a lot of new HubPages users! I love your Morlock analogy - that's so appropriate. Having fallen through on its duty to behave as a functional government, the system now wants to be our parents - babyproofing our rights away because we can't handle them, talking down to us like scolding parents from the media, and the mainstream media is obliging them when it creates a culture of vapid irresponsibility. Remember when we did away with culture when we found television and other mass media? That's coming back to haunt us.
In installing the New Totalitarianism, forces are finding that religious zealotry can whip people into a frenzy - or at least, convince them that all their neighbors are whipped up into a frenzy - while giving them an awe-inducing aura of moral superiority brought about by psychological special-effects... rhetoric, misapplication of moral and religious values, pseudomoral palaver, and basically trying to turn God on His ear so that the State looks good. Of course, that doesn't work because the tail doesn't wag the dog - it only breaks the system.
Incidentally, the U.S. is going through the same thing with outsourced jobs and all that. People are trying to compensate by getting all kinds of degrees - there are some "entry level" jobs now that require four years experience, I don't get it either - but the problem is that we haven't been keeping up on our politics. We have megacorporations widening their profit margins, and carting jobs overseas because that's cheaper for them to do - and nobody's holding their feet to the fire. They've grown used to these huge profits, and like a cocaine addict they want more, more more! They've become used to compromising their ethical standards for those profits, and as the infrastructure of other countries develops, they don't think twice about ditching us for a quick buck. And we let them develop that bloated sense of egotism, infidelity and self-interest at all costs. Us! By not paying attention, by not keeping them accountable in the first place, and by not taking consumer actions - when was the last time you heard the word "boycott"? How many years ago? We don't have our politicians on a leash either, so tariffs against countries who are being gifted all of our jobs should be given a look-in. But we haven't been paying attention as a society, and we're paying the price. Our infrastructure is going down, because we're not making enough. These other countries the corps are setting up shop in are finding all kinds of unethical practices by the corps, who find that these countries will take it because they need to money. And as things get worse, our government is about to turn on us the same way our corporations have - and for essentially the same reasons.
Thanks for your readership, and your comment!
Amanda Severn from UK on September 03, 2008:
Hi Satori. Hey, what a different picture of life in the States I am getting through reading hubpages.... For a long while now, I've been seeing parallels in modern day life to HG Wells book 'The Time Machine', where the Time Traveller goes into the future and finds the beautiful, child-like people living above the ground with everything provided for them, whilst the Morlocks labour under ground to keep everything going like clockwork, so that hey can pick their victims above the ground when ever they choose. The child-like people may live in the sunlight, but they also live in terror of the dark, and the unknown.
Here in the UK we have lost such great swathes of our industry, that just about everything is manufactured overseas. The younger generations are by and large, quite gadget dependant, and relatively de-skilled compared to the pre-war generations. This situation exists because of cheap labour in China and India, but the times, they are a-changing, and one day we will wake up and find that the cheap imports have a bigger price tag than any we're prepared to pay, and that our own skill levels and infrastructure is so weak, that the status quo will change overnight.
Completely aside to this is the question of religion, which has traditionally through the centuries been used as a tool to subjugate the masses. Do you thing the resurrection of the link between religion and politics is completely co-incedental?
Satori (author) from California on September 03, 2008:
Evidently, some people are targeted in the UK, where there isn't any sovereign citizenship. According to what I've read, some of these groups are private, and some are for-hire... so there may be many reasons depending on the group. But sovereign citizenship is the only thing that would make concrete sense in my case. Good luck with your research - feel free to keep us posted on this Hub if you find anything especially interesting!
Christoph Reilly from St. Louis on September 02, 2008:
I will surely look into this more and read your other hubs. I see you have written more on the subject. I don't mean to bother you with this...I'm sure I'll find the answer, but who the hell is targeting you for researching Sovereign Citizenship? Not many would KNOW you were doing it, so I guess the inference is The U.S. Government? Wow! Thanks again for making me aware of this...THING.
Satori (author) from California on September 02, 2008:
Hi Christoph! I'm glad I was able to introduce you to information on what's out there. You're right about withholding federal funds - it's easy to get state and local authorities under federal sway, because they're beholden to federal coffers.
I'd thought I'd what my suspicions were in my article, but you're right, it didn't come across because I'd mentioned it in the context of other targets I've encountered. I can understand why someone wouldn't want to say - they're already getting enough negative attention, and just want their private lives back. The only concrete reasons that make sense as far as why it happened to me would be either because I'm actively involved in metaphysics, and because I'd been researching sovereign citizenship quite a bit online. Nothing else really objectionable - gay, a little drug use here and there, but all small stuff and otherwise very law-abiding. A ton of sovereign citizenship research on the internet is the reason the few people I've talked to who also admitted to being targets of organized stalking had also been researching sovereign citizenship. It's to do with the common law rights US citizens have over their government and just in general, and the US has been making a steady drift away from that for decades, as if it's been strategic. Terrorism is just the latest stage in eroding rights. This being the basis for why I was targetted would fit what I've encountered and researched.
Raven1.net has a lot of good information on this. And if you're interested in organized stalking and sovereign citizenship, which seems to be the common element behind at least some of it, I recommend:
They can't stalk everyone who researches it, but it could very well increase your likelihood of becoming a target if you research it enough. People interested in researching organized stalking firsthand would probably do well to fit the profile of a target-to-be in their online activities like that. In computer terms, it's called the honeypot strategy... make a computer look unprotected and chock-full of valuable data, and then monitor the internet addresses of people who try to hack it.
Glad you found this worthwhile - thanks for your comment!
Christoph Reilly from St. Louis on September 02, 2008:
I have never heard of this. I am amazed. The youtube vid. was very interesting. I'm a little dumbfounded, so forgive me if I don't express myself too well here. You make the point that these gang stalkers can be hired to do this to anyone. You never say what your suspicions are as to why it was happening to you, probably by design, I'm sure, but I can't help being curious. Do you have any idea? None of my business, I know. The lady on the video also doesn't say. I find this curious. Don't for one second think I believe this behavior might be justified, under any circumstances. It just seems like if it were me, I'd say somerthing like, "I don't have any clue as to why this is happening," or "I think it's happening because..." or something.
pgrundy's observation about government money doesn't surprise me. It was the same with the drug war and the ridiculous seizing of property because someone was caught with a joint. That was so obviously about money and so obviously wrong it's still amazing to me that they can get away with it and nobody is doing anything about it. The people (government of, by, and for?) pass a state law for medicinal marijuana and the feds don't like it so they bust in and arrest them anyway. It's absurd. All the feds have to do to bend a state to their will is withhold federal highway funds. Very convenient for propigating their facism.
Anyway, thanks for this hub. I am sorry it happened to you (or anyone for that matter). I am going to look into this further. Thanks!
Satori (author) from California on September 02, 2008:
Pam, who saw /that/ coming? We criminalize everything under the sun, orchestrate a policy that allows the government to reasonably call some of its citizens enemies of the state, and develop drastic measures to deal with them. Next thing you know, whoops!, ordinary - if civicly-active - citizens "accidentally" make it onto the list... and these are just the cases we've heard about. It's mighty tough to raise a public outcryif you're held incommunicado in Guantanamo. Why, we couldn't have seen this coming until as late as March of 1933, when Roosevelt ammended the dormant 1917 Trading With the Enemy Act to include U.S. citizens as "enemies". This was purportedly to stop citizens from hoarding gold after the banks had carted most of it overseas and then collapsed, leaving the country in a major muddle. The idea was that by hoarding gold, you were acting against the interests of your country - and that made you an enemy of the state. In other words, the state will declare what makes you an enemy of the state. Isn't that comforting? Particularly when we're training soldiers overseas for war in urban areas, Bush is champing at the bit to swap local police out for soldiers, and we're getting widespread secret arrests of about 30,000 people that are staying off of the news radar almost completely - even though they're the largest in the nation's history.
Good luck with your writing! You may find that Project Censored has a lot of research information.
Chef Jeff, I'm glad this information was of value to you! Do let me know if you dig up something really good, like a site that's chock-full of research data or a support group or something. I already have Raven1.net linked, and that's an amazing couple of pages.
pgrundy on September 02, 2008:
Chef Jeff, I just heard a guy on NPR who wrote a similar book! Damn I wish I could remember his name now---I would buy your book in a heartbeat by the way.
I think this topic is kind of in the vein of, "Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean people aren't really out to get me." I remember back in college my abnormal psych professor pointed out that a way-too-high percentage of diagnosed 'paranoid schizophrenics' turn out to be telling a real story. But that doesn't get discovered until they are, um, offed by the people they say are after them. Right now we know for sure that the crackdown on dissent is all out of whack with the imagined danger posed by the dissenters. Beyond that, I don't know--having been close to the FBI at one point in my life, I'd say not to reject anything out of hand, especially with these bastards in office.
Chef Jeff from Universe, Milky Way, Outer Arm, Sol, Earth, Western Hemisphere, North America, Illinois, Chicago. on September 02, 2008:
I have not heard of this but I will be looking into it. With current levels of paranoia so high about all forms of terrorism, it is not surprising that people are ratting out or ferreting out neighbors they suspect of something, anything, and that people will do such things in order to make their neighborhoods "safe" for their kind.
I am going to read a book that talks about how American is voluntarily dividing itself into neighborhoods of think-alike-look-alike neighbors. The point of the book is that this is not a good thing, with which I wholeheartedly agree.
Whethr or not this is "organized paranoia" or an actual event, I can't say based upon one hub. But I will look into it and find out more, just for the sake of my own knowledge.
Thanks for the info!
pgrundy on September 02, 2008:
Hey just thought I'd let you know that there's an article about this topic in this month's issue of "The Progressive." The ACLU is working on the case of an antiwar protester with no criminal record who suddenly showed up in a terrorist database. It turned out the state police had sent a woman to infiltrate this group (of five people!) with no criminal history, and for over a year she reported no reason for concern and no violent or criminal activity on the part of the group or the guy, and the next thing he knows he shows up in a database as a known terrorist.
It's pretty freaky, and here's the outrageous thing---With all the post-9/11 money it turns out states are all about sending spies into these groups, and for what? For the 9/11 money that's what. But now this kid has a record as a terrorist. According to the ACLU this is turning into big business for state law enforcement agencies.
I think I will gather some of this all together and do a related hub. This is freakin' horrible, seriously. I know it sounds like paranoia, but there's a surprising amoung of documentation for this. I promise I'll get together what I have and do a hub on harrassment of protest groups.
pgrundy on September 02, 2008:
I went ahead and signed the pledge for you (I hope--I think I did, if it didn't 'take' or something let me know and I'll sign it.) I find this whole trend beyond disturbing. I'm not convinced people are complacent--I think many people are complacent but many just don't realize what is going on. The media are all corporately owned now, so they aren't going to find out what is really happening unless they make a special effort to find out, or unless they are involved in an incident themselves.
I don't mind paying taxes. I mind the way they are being used. I still think the system can work when it is followed, but the Neocons are doing an end run around it and have been for eight years now. I think they should all be tried for treason but I don't think a trial will happen unless it's a world court trying them for war crimes. At this point impeachment seems like a joke--even if it were on the table it isn't nearly severe enough.
I honestly don't know what I'm going to do. I like Obama and will vote for him. I know his ideas are not radical compared to yours, but I do trust he will make serious reforms if elected. Whether or not he will be elected, and what the country will look like if he isn't, these are scary questions. Right now I'm appalled but it's not like I'm wielding all this power all by myself. I can write about it though. I can do that much.
Satori (author) from California on September 02, 2008:
Ah, a photo op by the New Totalitarianism. A "pre-emptive strike" is a term used in warfare, not properly used against one's own citizens. Particularly when a government is charged with securing the rights of its citizenry, not the least of which is the freedom to peacably assemble. When it doesn't, government is actually liable under law - whether or not it upholds that law. The New Totalitarianism is joyriding around, piggybacked on the media just like some kind of New York carjacker, and using Republicans and conservatives as euphemisms for those people it claims as its own. Which is an atrocity and arguably a conspiracy of treason - but what else is new? People's apathy is rather conveniently allowing groups like this to break the political, social and economic systems of the world, and as they continue to break one of the goals is to generate more apathy - until it can get its foot in the door enough to generate fear... and then, an overt takeover by force to make the scenario complete. Completely broken, that is.
We've had cases of plainclothes officers sauntering through a peaceful public protest, spraying mace surreptitiously into the eyes of the protesters. No warrant, no nothing. In other cases, plainclothes officers have gone to civil activism meetings as new members, throwing in all kinds of outrageous, over-the-top, violent suggestions about courses of action the group should take. While the group of course rejected these ideas, legitimate new members were given the impression their first time their that this was what the group was like, sabotaging the inflow of new members as well as the meeting itself.
And it's all done with your money. Bush has already signed legislation to the tune of "if I say local police aren't doing their jobs, I can swap them out with soldiers at any time". So local police serve at the whimsy and favor of whoever makes it into the White House. The only solution is to stop feeding the beast - research the law, learn whether you're actually lawfully required to pay your taxes, and if you come to the reasoned conclusion that you're not, DON'T! It's hurting people, and it's breaking society now that those running the system are following an agenda 180 degrees off from what works.
The alternative, of course, is to fund human torture, a conspiracy of treason, and all kinds of things that violate even the Geneva Conventions. A body of otherwise ordinary citizens are mindlessly funding this monster, and as its starting to emerge people are starting to ask each other where in the world it came from. Gee. I wonder.
Oh, and last night after reading your comment, I went to PledgeBank and made this:
I'd appreciate it if people who were willing would sign on to it. It takes five people to sign before it will hit PledgeBank's listings. An interesting experiment in internet activism - and I'll probably end up writing an article telling other writers how to use it for civil rights activism if it works. Thanks for giving me the idea, Pam!
pgrundy on September 02, 2008:
I read this hub last night, and got up to find reports on Daily Kos of 'pre-emptive strikes' by county police on protestors at the Republican National Convention. Keep in mind that the protestors are separated from the convention--they are nowhere near it, and are inside a holding area. The police spent three hours holding Wiccan protestors at gun point while looking for explosives by searching each person. They had no explosives. If they did have explosives, they could blow up themselves, that's it. Even the Demoncratice Convention had police in military vehicles riding around in riot gear with assault rifles. I believe 'pre-emptive strikes' on peaceful protest groups are what in better days most people would call harassment.
Satori (author) from California on September 01, 2008:
Thanks, Pam. I was downtown waiting at a bus stop one night after clubbing, when I noticed the same care had driven past me about five times. When I asked someone else at the bus stop about it, he agreed with and confirmed my suspicions. I left the bus stop and found the car, and others, following me. Since I knew the area pretty well, and was on foot, I took some pedestrian-only alleyways to lose them. When one of their cars would pass me, they'd let out a sequence of beeps to alert their cohorts, always the same number of beeps, and then they'd swarm past me, back and forth, up and down the road wherever I was walking. I decided to walk home instead, taking all kinds of inroads, doubling back and so on, even taking a creek just to throw them. I couldn't lose them - and when I'd hide behind a bush, it would take them about twenty to thirty minutes to send a pedestrian over... and shortly after, there'd be a sequence of beeps in the distance and the cars would be back. They ended up harassing me for years.
It's all about silencing dissent, so that a broken system can go on breaking itself further. And it's a resultant of the collective acts of apathy and mindless self-indulgence of the vast majority of citizens the world over. People, your apathy has a literal body-count. It also undermines quality of life for yourself and others until there's literally no point to living - for anyone. It's just the thin end of the wedge for the New Totalitarianism that the media references, using Repulicans and conservatives as euphemisms. This society is currently like an epileptic bull in a china shop, and people are buying it. I want people to know exactly what it is they're buying. And I wanted a page I could refer people in my life to, to make explaining the situation easier. Hopefully it will be of value to others as well.
If other targets of organized stalking want to share their experiences, I'd be up for compiling them into a collaboratively-written book - hit the Contact Satori button and message me about it. There are also a ton of internet options for promoting change on this issue - if people are interested, I'd love to apply them. You're probably right, this article isn't likely to get a lot of attention, and many citizens will go through life blithely ignorant of the problem. Now that you mention it, there are a ton of benevolent cause sites out there, such as PledgeBank and YourCause, that could bring about some good. I'd like to try to find some ways to use HubPages in combination with benevolent social networking sites and activism planning sites to bring about some good. It won't make my life meaningful, but it's about as good a way as any to waste my time in this broken system. Thanks for bringing the problem to the fore of my mind - once I see the problem, I can address it.
pgrundy on September 01, 2008:
You know, my first reaction to this was, this is kind of paranoid. But thinking about it more carefully, I think, well, maybe it's not paranoid enough. It's been close to a decade here that it's been possible to Google a satellite shot of your own rooftop, and you've got to think that, if that is possible on Google for chrissakes, much more is possible off the grid. My first husband was an FBI agent. He started as a translator though, listening in on tapped phones at foreign embassies. That was back in the 70s, and they had whole departments of 15K language employees just listening to diplomats order booze and talk about their girlfriends.
So here we are thirty years later with an even scarier government in power, and you have to wonder what the freaks are up to these days. We know it isn't good, and it's certainly more sophisticated than phone tapping. This is a good hub, and one that probably won't get the attention it deserves. Thank for writing it.
