Groupthink

Since becoming a Targeted Individual of community-based harassment or gang stalking, I have had plenty of time to think about groupthink. Groupthink is when conformity within the group is paramount, and it serves to silence alternative opinions or dissent.

Gang stalking relies on groupthink. I’ve thought of the ‘gang’ as lemmings or lackeys. I’ve had difficulty in understanding how they are influenced to behave as they do, how they can act as proxies, how they can rationalize their behavior, etc. I often think of them as a cult because each acts the same – they use the same lingo and communication tactics. Sometimes you can predict what they are going to say since there’s little variance in their speech or objectives.

From time to time, I will post articles or information on groupthink, witch hunts, cults, community vigilantes or policing, and the like to help us all understand this phenomenon. Here is some information on groupthink to get us started:
