The Spirit of Gangstalking
As human society continues its inexorable moral decline and is stripped of even the normal fellow feeling and neighborliness that holds civilization together; a dark cruelty takes its place. We don’t like to admit that. We want to be viewed as civilized and enlightened even as unbridled cruelty pulses just beneath our thin veneer of respectability. Life has lost its value. As that occurs, anyone who is viewed as less than a peer becomes a potential target. They become less than human.
Such is the spirit behind gang-stalking. The gang-stalkers feels protected by their collective and exercises their disdain for any considered unsuitable of membership. That same spirit can also be seen in the rise of a new type of crime formerly nonexistent in our culture. There is a deeply disturbing article on the nationwide rise in violent, unprovoked attacks on the homeless in The New York Times of August 8, 2008, entitled “Attacks on Homeless Bring Push on Hate Crime Laws.”
According to the article, there is an alarming rise in unprovoked attacks upon homeless people by working class men and teenagers. This fast rising trend has moved some states to consider legislation declaring them hate crimes. “The assailants are outsiders (not homeless): men or in most cases teenage boys who punch, kick, shoot or set afire people living on the streets, frequently killing them, simply for the sport of it, their victims all but invisible to society.”
Michael Stoops, Executive Director, National Coalition for the Homeless, said social prejudices were “dehumanizing” the homeless and condoning hostile treatment. He pointed to a blurb titled “Hunt the Homeless” in the current issue of Maxim, a popular men’s magazine. It spotlights a coming “hobo convention” in Iowa and says: “Kill one for fun. We’re 87 percent sure it’s legal.”
When you dehumanize a group or individual it is quite easy to justify any act of violence against them. It becomes sport. That is the spirit of gangstalking at its heart. Gangstalking is an exercise of social prejudice that uses psychological aggression as a form of hostility. It will decline into open physical aggression soon enough. That is, after all, where human society is heading.
“But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, betrayers, headstrong, puffed up [with pride], lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God . . . 2 Timothy 3:1-4
