Almost all of my stalkers/abusers are of low intelligence and gullible and they stick together. They defend each other, no matter what, despite knowing deep down what they’re doing is wrong. A lot of it is due to herd mentality (Wikipedia page on herd mentality), groupthink (Wikipedia page on Groupthink) and deindividuation (Wikipedia page on Deindividuation).
My main abuser, Randy aka Island, brainwashes people into believing lies/slander about me and then acts as if he is the authority of their group. He is always controlling the narrative and knows how to suppress individuality and free thinking in his group. He has become a cult leader, of sorts, and people just blindly follow him because he has a core group of people that will always remain loyal to him, no matter what. This influences and persuades the others in the group (especially newcomers). He is a narcissistic abuser (with psychopathy and a Machiavellian personality, which forms the “dark triad”, in psychology terms) and he depends on his “flying monkeys” to help him control the narrative, dominate the conversation every waking moment, and suppress the views of anyone that goes against his plans in any way.
99% of people that they have recruited to participate in the abuse of torture of me have stopped abusing me because they eventually see through their bullshit and lies and realize that what they’re doing is wrong. The 1% that continue to go along with it are either sadistic psychopaths, jealous/envious, brainwashed/gullible, or have been (falsely) promised things.
Even though 99% of people eventually see through his bullshit, not many of them are courageous enough to actually stand up to the bully/abuser. Fortunately, I do have someone on my side that’s in my stalker/abuser’s group. This person (over the v2k and in person) doesn’t want me to be abused and is genuinely a good person. Let’s just say he doesn’t fit in with the group. The easy thing would be for him to just walk away, but he continues to defend me and refuses to compromise his morals. He sees and knows the truth, and – while he can’t be there all the time to defend me and counter the nonstop, ongoing brainwashing of new people that they recruit – when he is around, he is able to think and speak for himself and not just blindly follow orders of my main stalker/abuser. Like I said, my main stalker/abuser has become a cult leader, of sorts, and people see him as the authority. They will blindly follow him, even if it’s to their detriment. They will give him money, lie, steal and cheat for him, and put their own lives on the line, because they feel a loyalty and allegiance to him. This is because they have been falsely promised a bunch of things and are delusional enough to believe that they will get what they were promised.
Most of those that see the truth and decide not to go along with his plans just bow out and stop participating in the abuse, torture and slander of me (and brainwashing of others – new people that they try to recruit).
Groupthink requires individuals to avoid raising controversial issues or alternative solutions, and there is loss of individual creativity, uniqueness and independent thinking. The dysfunctional group dynamics of the “ingroup” produces an “illusion of invulnerability” (an inflated certainty that the right decision has been made). Thus the “ingroup” significantly overrates its own abilities in decision-making and significantly underrates the abilities of its opponents (the “outgroup”). Furthermore, groupthink can produce dehumanizing actions against the “outgroup”. Members of a group can often feel under peer pressure to “go along with the crowd” for fear of “rocking the boat” or of how their speaking out will be perceived by the rest of the group. Group interactions tend to favor clear and harmonious agreements and it can be a cause for concern when little to no new innovations or arguments for better policies, outcomes and structures are called to question. (McLeod). Groupthink can often be referred to as a group of “yes men” because group activities and group projects in general make it extremely easy to pass on not offering constructive opinions.
The herd mentality is so rampant and ridiculous that there have been days when almost all of the members of his group have taken my “side” and defended me and told the truth and not gone along with his plans, only to change their minds hours later, after being brainwashed by my main stalker/abuser/the group leader. Some days, this has happened several times. Most people in the group just go along with whatever others in the group do and are afraid to be singled out. One person in the group pretty much always sides with whatever position their friend in the group takes.
My main abuser/stalker is a master at manipulation. It’s what he’s been doing all day, every day for the past 15 years. It’s pretty much his job. He is a con artist/scam artist/bullshit artist/thief. He has even been arrested for wire fraud, larceny 4th degree, larceny 6th degree and more. His whole life has been about creating schemes and scams and defrauding people. He has gone to prison for wire fraud, and hopefully, will end up in prison again because of what he is doing to me.
As for the other members of his “group” – the ones that blindly follow him – they’re not immune to the consequences of their actions. They will get arrested too, if this is ever investigated. Or, they’ll just continue to keep doing what they’ve been doing, which is wasting their entire lives and spending all of their money slandering me and torturing me and brainwashing others. My main abuser/stalker has even lost jobs due to him spending his entire life and all of his time torturing and abusing me. He is desperate and has nothing besides his flying monkeys and these directed energy weapons/bci.
