GANG STALKING, "OPEN SECRETS" AND CLOSED SOCIETIES
The concept of an "open secret" is something that a large number of people know, but, noone officially recognizes, or, openly talks about. This applies to mainly government and especially military knowledge. A good example is NSA's Echelon system, or, that the Israeli government has hundreds of H-bombs. This concept is also fused into certain private sector operations like local Mafia control of certain industries, legal and illegal, enabled by the help of official corruption of the local political machinery. There is a good wikipedia page on the topic of the open secret, link below:
There are certain social ills of an undemocratic nature that lead to extensive societal secrets. Firstly, an open government is a foundation of a democratic state. Yet, in Nation of Secrets, Ted Gup describes a growing trend of official secrecy that has deleterious effects. There is such an extensive usage of labeling things as classified Top Secret that it has watered down the way such materials are treated and created a consequent blurring of the line between benign secrets and important secrets. The press is also reduced to a child-like status by having to quote "anonymous officials" on important stories, or, risk losing access, and, hence, stories. There are other ills at play like self-censorship which has become a reflexive state for many especially post 9/11. Secrecy in government is one of the early harbingers of the death of democracy. Naomi Wolf wrote an excellent book called the End of America analyzing secrecy as part of a structured analysis of societies on the road to fascism. Of course, the existence of an open secret requires an Orwellian doublethink of knowing something, but, internalizing the lack of knowledge by sustained, forced public denial of said knowledge.
The articles I wrote that substantiate the knowledge and official deniability of gang stalking by DOJ and the National Center for Victims of Crime, on NowPublic, shows a classic example of the operation of an open secret. What is especially pernicious about gang stalking being an open secret is that it requires a McCarthyesq involvement by large sectors of the public in secrecy, and, obeying arbitrary and unquestioned orders. It is the type of social engineering that is unfit for rudimentary democracy. At worst it may be a stalking horse for American Fascism.
CONSPIRACY AND DOUBLETHINK
The public has been conditioned to use Orwellian doublethink with the concept of "conspiracy". Every day in this country there are hundreds of conspiracy convictions in most cases when a crime involves two or more defendants. Here, the prosecutors are never considered "conspiracy nuts". However, outside the criminal justice system the term conspiracy has been smeared with the smack of an inevitably crazy accusation. There are even people who believe a conspiracy has never been proven in a civil court case. This is belied by laws such as Civil RICO, and, many crimes involving financial fraud.
Hillary Clinton was pilloried over saying her husband was the victim of a "vast right wing conspiracy". The documentary film The Hunting of the President made a persuasive case for her accusations. Again, this reflexive smear campaign is just a symptom of the deep conditioning that the public has underwent, in many areas of thought, that reflects a structured narrowing of acceptable argument, even acceptable thought (cf. "thought crime"). Anyone seriously interested in this issue should read Noam Chomsky's Neccessary Illusions: Thought Control in Democratic Societies.
Anyone who thinks Ward Churchill's comparisons between the Nazi government and that of the Americans is incorrect should take a look at this link:
My seven other articles on this site have generated over two hundred comments. I would like anyone commenting on this, who actually knows about gang stalking, to express in their comments exactly how Un-American an activity it is.
