Since my last blog post in February, torture and abuse that are Hidden in Plain Sight continue. Sleep deprivation due to “silent sound” torture which no one else can hear and no one can see. This has been ongoing in extreme mode since April 2010, semi-extreme the entire year of 2009, and decades of low-level abuse before that.
I am one of many being abused in this country, some of us by non-consenting human experimentation methods, women (and men) who live with abusive partners, children who are abused by adults, children who are bullied, adults who are bullied, elders who live in care facilities who are abused by staff, activists who are abused by vigilante groups, various ethnic groups which are abused by authority figures….there are tens of thousands of us being abused? No way to know exact numbers. The abuse harms us physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, often financially, harms our relationships, harms our day-to-day interactions with others, suppresses creativity, and keeps us from realizing our potential as living beings on the planet.
While teaching elementary children, I had students who had been and/or were being abused. Most of them never told me. Acting out in anger, dirty or torn clothing, no packed lunch nor money for lunch, irregular attendance, wearing coats inside, clothing with hoods over the head, hands jammed in pockets all the time, extreme frustration with assignments or tasks, these were some of the indicators that children were facing challenges many of us had not had to face when we were in school.
The majority of elementary teachers are usually women. Women help others, women take care of people. It’s in our nature to do so. Elementary teachers do what they can to assist students they think might be being abused by making sure they are fed at lunchtime, providing clean clothes, sometimes the children shower at school, various support staff members spend time with the students, they get extra help with academic work, medications are provided if needed.
Awareness about abuse is increasing with many groups and organizations stepping up to assist children, victims of domestic abuse, rape survivors, and homeless men and women who have often been and are being abused. What we all need to do is speak up and speak out about abuse wherever and whenever we see it or become aware of it. Silence equals consent. No consent should be given for abuse. It should not be tolerated.
My mother was abused as a non-consenting human experimentation subject. Sometime in her 40s or 50s, she started having lots of neck pain. She made hats that she wore most of the time to cover her head, and had many sweatshirts and robes with hoods. She also had back pain, and sometimes extreme leg pain. I had several products that helped her pain and would send them to her from Colorado or bring some with me when I visited Ohio. There were times she missed family events because she was in too much pain to travel by car.
I did not know at the time that she was being irradiated. It became worse when she moved into the retirement center, living there alone from 2002 after my father passed until 2013 when she passed. She was also subjected to the harassment abuse that is part of the Zersetzen-type program operating in this country, and voice-to-skull (V2K) technology. She didn’t tell me about the V2K until I asked her and she confirmed it. Abuse and harassment of an 80+ year-old woman should be unacceptable, but there are people who participate in the harassment program who do not care about elders.
I became aware of all this once I became aware of what was being done to me. My mother and father spent a lot of money to move into the retirement home. Another member of the family had her checkbook and was paying the bills. When I moved back to Ohio, I could have moved her into my home, but she would have been irradiated there as well since it was being done to me. Speaking with my siblings about any of these issues only resulted in pushback, discrediting, and lack of support for me. It was very upsetting to be blocked from getting help for her or me.
Psychological abuse has been mainstreamed into our day-to-day lives in ways that are Hidden in Plain Sight. Eric Fair, a former interrogator, has said that one purpose of sleep deprivation is to make the person being sleep-deprived lose hope. Torturing someone for this purpose is a cruel, inhumane, and sadistic way to treat people. Those who don’t want to call these practices torture, can call them extreme abuse instead.
Steven Metz and James Kievit mentioned in their article, The Revolution in Military Affairs and Conflict Short of War, that an irregular approach is used, which has been called the asymmetric, indirect, or attrition-based approach. Rather than quick physical destruction, the goal is the psychological collapse of the enemy. Use of these techniques on unsuspecting test subjects is abuse.
Those tortured get: no manuals, no briefings, no SAP access codes, no explanations, no assistance or help, no support even when they ask for it, are overcharged if they hire someone for repairs, are harassed, bullied, stalked, and more….the tortured get no compensation for their pain and destroyed lives….only those with the manuals, briefings, equipment and codes get paid.
Some of the military and defense personnel who have facilitated abuse and torture are exposing what has been done to prisoners. The photos that were leaked some years ago made us all aware of what was happening, and now there are articles, videos, and books that raise awareness. Here’s the NPR interview with Eric Fair who just released a book about his experiences. It Was Torture!
Please do not silently consent to abuse or torture of any kind. Please speak up and condemn abuse and torture. Lives depend on truth being told, not just during domestic violence month, but every day of every month.
