United we stand. Divided they fall.

Extreme assessments and paranoid conclusions

After giving the New York Times article a little bit more time to settle there are three points that I wanted to review further.

The first was how the article came to use the term extreme communities. I did read over the Vaughan Bell article where a reference is made to such communities.

http://arginine.spc.org/vaughan/Bell_2007_JMH_Preprint.pdf
<blockquote>Extreme communities

One feature that has garnered relatively little attention in the clinical research literature is the
existence of what might be termed ‘extreme communities’. Owing to the difficulty with which
material can be effectively censored or suppressed online, views considered extreme or
unacceptable to the mainstream can be expressed relatively freely, with online communities often
formed by those who share similar opinions. Some of these are of particular interest to mental
health professionals, as they attempt to reframe what would otherwise be classified as ‘mental
disorder’ in an entirely different light.</blockquote>
According to what Dr Bell wrote in the article it was views considered extreme or unacceptable by the mainstream. Using this definition I wondered if things such as the 9/11 truth movement would be an extreme community? Their views are not considered mainstream. I also wondered who else might fall into this list based on Dr Bell’s definition?

Websites that cover conspiracy topics might well meet his definition of extreme communities. Many of the subject matters covered on websites such as http://www.AboveTopSecret.com would fall into this category. They would be a website of mini patches of extreme communities.

Another factor that I thought should be calculated in when defining a community as an extreme community is the obvious, is the community helpful vs harmful? What kind of purpose do they serve? If I go to a website that has what by some is considered an extreme view that encourages me to kill myself, then that should be considered different than going to a website that expounds none traditional views, but steers the website viewer away from inflicting harm to themselves?

There are lot’s of websites that conform to traditional or more traditional mainstream views that in my opinion are probably fairly harmful to some aspects of society, but we turn a blind eye, because it does pass mainstream muster.

The definition as is, in my opinion is fairly broad, and the references to the term were limited except for references to Dr Bell’s work and the New York Times article.

The other point that I am wondering about is who or what now defines what is mainstream or normal? In today’s society we have so many different variables to consider. At one time spending all your time online might have been considered the actions of lonely desperate people. Now with websites such as Facebook, and much of web 2.0 culture, being online is considered normal, and spending many hours online as long as it’s spent socialising is considered a fairly normal and healthy activity.

According to a report from Mediamark Research in a 30 day period 2.5 million adults participated in online dating. I am sure they find this to be completely normal and mainstream, but I am sure there are patches of society that do not agree with this.

World of WarCraft reached 11 Million monthly Subscribers. Many of them sane individuals who go online to take part in these roleplaying games. For that community, I am sure they consider themselves normal and mainstream, just by their sheer numbers. I am sure there are still many in society who would not however consider going online to roleplay normal, mainstream or even healthy.

Thus what would be considered as abnormal or extreme view offline is often a normal and accepted view online, in many different circles. Eg. 9/11 conspiracy offline, might still be considered anti-government or none traditional, but online they are a fairly regular part of web culture and discussions. When defining mainstream and referencing the Internet, we might have to start finding different ways to do so.

Eg. I just read an article today, that talks about a real life couple getting divorced because he is cheating online with a virtual girlfriend. Traditional definitions are having to be adapted and redefined to accommodate an online culture.

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/afp/081114/world/lifestyle_britain_family_divorce_internet_offbeat

A second woman in Japan was arrested because she killed her online husband. She killed his virtual self. That’s right, she did not kill him, or have any intention of killing the real him, but when his online virtual self divorced her, she got even and killed him. She was arrested for hacking into the computer and other things, and now if she is formally charged, she could face up to 5 years in jail.

It is becoming more and more clear that it is the offline world that is having to adapt to the new online realities and not often the other way around. Therefore what we considered traditional and mainstream yesterday for an offline reality, in many ways is being redefined, and it does not seem as if some offline structures are keeping up to date with this reality.

The third point of concern with the New York Times article is that people were being considered paranoid with simple offline assessments. Are these offline assessments adequate for some of the challenges that people are facing in the modern day world to define Targeted Individuals as paranoid?

Recent research has unearth a great deal of information to show that when people are being termed as paranoid, it might not be the case.

Research is showing that there are in fact networks of individuals being hired by the state in various countries to track and spy on average citizens. The spying includes email and phone taps. Being followed around in public by hired Covert Human Intelligence Sources. Having these same Informants move into the houses around the target when possible. Following them around in vehicle and foot patrols, plus many other forms of intrusive surveillance.

Individuals and Families under these types of surveillance are often not aware, and if they do become aware and go to seek help, they are often written off by the establishment as paranoid, psychotic, or crazy. The modern day reality is that without proper investigations, Freedom Of Information Act requests, and other proper forms of inquiry a true assessment might be impossible to determine. The secondary problem is that many of these investigations are ending up in secret databases, which the public has no access to. F.O.I.A. requests are no longer a sure fire way to determine if an individual is under surveillance.

http://www.corbettreport.com/articles/20080214_snitch_state.htm

I think it’s fair and safe to say that before a community is considered extreme many factors should be considered, and the definition itself should factor into consideration what’s considered normal online as well as offline. Assessing if a community or individual is paranoid or psychotic in today’s modern surveillance society should be done with care and caution. It’s been shown time and time again that anti-terror laws are being abused, National Security Letters are being handed out left right and center, with over 30,000 being issued per year, and many groups and individuals are being spied upon and placed on watch lists, unfairly.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/11/05/AR2005110501366.html

In a society as the one described above, it is not only normal to have concerns about surveillance, but when there is a suspicion of such, the job of therapists in the future might not be first subscribing the patient to medication, it might be first asking if they have placed a F.O.I.A. request.

Society might even have to make it a mandatory law for psychiatrist to be notified if a person is under surveillance so that they are not falsely labelled, committed or medicated. This does not happen, the culture and society have changed within the last decade, but the methods used for determining paranoia, psychosis, and mental illness, in regards to the belief that one is under surveillance are still fairly antiquated in many cases, and might not pass muster for the realities of a modern day surveillance society.

The side you don’t see 2

The side you don’t see part two.

There were two more incidents that should have been added to part one.

The first thing I have now observed, is that on several occasions where the Citizen Informants on the train, don’t quite know if they have the right target in sight. Meaning they have another person that fit’s the description.

What will happen is, I have sat there, and personally observed, them using my specific sensitivity to try to annoy the other person. So for example, if my sensitivity was Jingle keys, they would be jingling keys at the wrong person. I believe the theory is, that if they have the wrong person, that person will not react, but that has not always been the case.

I have personally witnessed the Citizen Informants, using the sensitivity to such a degree that they have annoyed the wrong person, or someone who was not me, by using the same sensitivity that I use to have. I have seen this happen more than once. So what I am wondering, is how often do these incidents get reported back, under my file?
This brings me to the second incident. I was at work, and this was during the time I was just starting to realise there was something really wrong, and that people were doing this out in public deliberately.

Well apparently an incident happened. I was getting the blame for it. People at work that I knew, were walking past me giving me dirty looks, saying thing like “some people are so rude,” “would you want that getting said to you?”

I knew enough to know an incident had happened, but I didn’t know the details, and knew that I was getting the blame and disdain for it. A few days later, apparently the correction was made, and people all started to act all fake nice again. The thought that crossed my mind then, and still does is how many other times have incidents happened, and I had them ascribed to me?

Remember these people are looking for a description, and if they find someone who fits, eg. Asian, male, 5′ tall, they will go after that person, wither they are the true target or not, etc.

The last thing that I have observed on several occasions is that they will have people that appear to be crazy or on a couple of occasions it’s been Citizen Informants doing a skit and pretending to be crazy. I say snitches pretending to be crazy, because I have observed them, quite clearly and coherently doing the one handed sign language to the other Citizen Informants.

They will appear at the same spot where I am located. It’s in my opinion that they appear to be deliberately trying to have someone pretend to be crazy or someone who is crazy, I suspect it’s the first where I am located at the time, talking to themselves or doing other really crazy stuff.

Think about it, I am being tracked around the city. So someone calls in a crazy person at Crazy Ave and Insane St talking to themselves or acting crazy in some other way and all of a sudden, the incident is attributed to the target who was in that spot, even though it was not the target.
I do not know how many incidents I have attributed to me, that have nothing to do with me? I do know that I will probably never get to see a file on me, and have a chance to clear my name. What I do know is this system has done some very deliberate things to try to make me, and others look crazy or unstable.

These are things targets should be mindful of, when out in public. I didn’t at the time, but if you suddenly see another person, who seems to be acting crazy, or more than likely just pretending to be so, write down the date and the time, because this could be attributed to you in future.
