… if the public can be deceived, so can you.
While experiencing tactics intended to demonstrate widespread hostility or derision towards a target, you saw the first flaws in the synthetic reality paraded before you - even if you didn’t realize it at the time.
Flaw #1: the surveillance.
You’ve been made aware you’re under surveillance. You only know you’re being surveilled because they’ve allowed you to know.1
How long have you been under surveillance? How extensive is the surveillance?
You only know answers to these questions that your harassers have provided. Do you trust them?
Flaw #2: the performances.
Increasingly obvious performances have been placed in front of your eyes, culminating in street theater - persons mimicking your private actions in full public view.
These performances are, quite obviously, staged. There’s nothing sincere or spontaneous about them; they’re arranged specifically for you to witness and remember.
The performances you’ve watched and recognize as such aren’t dangerous, once you understand what you’re being led to believe. It’s the performances you don’t recognize that are dangerous, and are shaping your life right now.
Candid, or staged?
You’ve observed what you thought was candid behavior from persons who thought they weren’t being watched, or who ‘slipped up’. You drew conclusions from what you saw, or heard.
What if you were intended to see that behavior, or those mistakes?
Real or manufactured chain of events?
You may have received hints that a smear campaign was picking up momentum, for example, or that a conflict with another person was brewing, and what happened seemed to naturally develop out of those events.
Are those hints being fed to you by the very same people who arranged performances for you; are those hints and the subsequent events, themselves, performances?
Who’s really being deceived?
You imagine that the public is being systematically deceived about you, and to a certain extent you’re right. If your story should get widespread attention, your paper trail will tell damning lies about your history. The process works because the real explanation for the paper trail you’ve left behind is unbelievable, compared to the proffered explanation.
Are you, likewise, being systematically deceived about who’s after you, and why? Have you bought it because any alternate explanation is unbelievable?
If the public can be deceived, so can you.
Targets of state-sanctioned organized harassment have all learned how important credibility is. Let’s review a few scenarios:
- Tens of millions (or more) have been fooled about the prevalence of (depending on what you’re inclined to believe) networks of harassers, COINTELPRO operations, cults, etc.; and this has been going on for decades.
- A few hundred thousand or so ‘harassers’ have been tricked into going after targets for years or decades, through smear campaigns and the like, and somehow not one of them has realized their mistake and spoken up about it.
- A few hundred (or a few thousand) targeted individuals have been deceived.
Which is easier to arrange? Which is more credible?
If there are obvious performances put on for you, then there may also be non-obvious performances - which could become glaringly obvious later.
The non-obvious performances would, in some cases, imply the surveillance of you is even more extensive than you had imagined. They would also imply - in some cases - that because the non-obvious performances were so well-timed, the actors must be getting instructions in nearly real time.
You may not understand their methods yet, and only time will help you realize their objectives – but you’ve been presented with evidence that things are not as they seem.
- ^ As pointed out in “Behind your back: the psychological impact of unseen attackers”, if a surveillance team wanted to put you under surveillance without letting you know, it would be childishly simple to arrange.
