FBI knows all about ‘moral surrender’

Saw this article in the Washington Post this week (using another link here). The FBI director wants agents to go to the Holocaust museum to learn not to surrender individual morality to groups (or authority). Isn’t this the agency that invented Cointelpro?! Its very nature is dependent on moral surrender, as is all human rights violations and atrocities the world has witnessed.

FBI director: Holocaust teaches not to surrender individual morality to the group

In their minds, the murderers and accomplices of Germany, and Poland, and Hungary, and so many, many other places didn’t do something evil. They convinced themselves it was the right thing to do, the thing they had to do. That’s what people do. And that should truly frighten us.

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:
