Collective Action: Chruch

‘Church’ refers to a level of complexity beyond the application of belief and faith pertaining individual practices of different religions. From a vantage point considering the collective action, the category ‘Church’ denotes an operational capacity allowing agents of the collective action the ability to transgress civil and human rights. Engrafting it aims and purposes on police, health care or educational functions of public and private entities is constrained by laws, policies and procedures that weigh risk assessments to avoid legal liabilities and injury.

Religious Aggravated Harassment The moral license of faith based collective action, however, negates the need for a risk assessment when weighing liabilities and injury because theological rationalizations sanction and in some cases, sanctifies ignoring civil and human rights when the invocation of a celestial authority and power fanatically violates the social contact that protects freedom of expression. Beneficiaries of privileged equilibriums of power suckle a synergy between faith and fascism. The nectar of Mexican Kleptocrats.

In the absence of light, the child’s senses conspired with an imagination that swallowed the world whole. Shades of his fears bathed in pools of darkness beneath his bed, behind his door and in the corner of the spaces between things situated around his room. The darkness flowed under the covers with him as he retreated there for safety. Deciding to make a run for it, covers and legs flew off the bed into the night air. Silent then loud screams sounded an alarm of terror as he ran down the hall to his parent’s room.

“The Devil is going to get me!” He was yelling.

Surprised smiles and a well lit room reacquainted the child with his senses as an uncomforting embarrassment subdued his fear but not his anxiety.

His father asked, “Where is the Devil?”

The child’s answer in the form of an explanation invited his parents on the journey that his imagination charted for him through the dark spaces of his room. Poised as if divulging a top secret, the child conjured for them from an omniscient abyss a frightening and terrible creature. Acknowledging the child’s fear with simple logic, his father explained that the Devil is a clever former angel who would not appear as something scary when he wanted to get someone.

If He frighten people, they would run away. Instead, He appears to people in a pleasing non threatening form and manner. He comes to you as someone you trust. This is how he comes for you. The Devil is not a scary monster hiding in the dark. An acquaintance that I have made in my struggles reminds me of this childhood memory. Let’s call him JBell.

One of the most common forms of aggressive child behavior is subtle ways of instigating a fight. This type of childish behavior has a few universal street corner taunts: “He said your mama is fat. You are not going to let him get away with that are you?”, “You can’t let him disrespect your girl!” or “He thinks he is better than you.” The point is to provoke a conflict. The formal introduction and description of the collective action pretty much boils down to a bunch of rich Mexican nationals engaging in childish behaviors. Manipulating different groups, persons and communities to fight their battles. Me! The manipulation behind each instigation consists of a web of deception that exploits a modus operandi.

For example, a group of feminist students incited by a narration of a male chauvinist pig, Muslims by a narration of the Koran being disrespected, Police by a narration of a mentally abusive relationship or Christians by a narration of an attack on family values. The term collective action and the description of it attempts to capture a multitude of instigations by the same predatory female. In other words, a spoiled rich female, Paulina Garcia Del Moral, with enough resources to socially engineer a mirror reflex of her emotions by passing herself off as a sympathetic character in a variety of narratives. She has no more attachment or sentiment for the sympathetic characters she pretends to instigate conflict than a ten year old girl has to any one of a number of dolls she dresses up to play the princess, the witch, the model, the wife, the business woman or the best friend.

Whether a person, group of persons, community or organization her performance has to be competent enough to align her self-interest with the mission, beliefs, prejudices or practices of front persons and entites. Once she manages to sick (to set upon) them, it falls to me to keep them engaged or not by how I choose to respond, not respond or defend my person. Each person, group, organization or community that is sicked tends to be sincere about their mission, beliefs, prejudices or practices. Incited to act, the mission, beliefs, prejudices or practices of useful fools become in their minds the motive force for their participation in the collective action. This makes ‘religious aggravated harassment’ the most challenging aspect of the collective action. Take JBell for example.

An essential aspect of ventriloquy is the appearance of a dummy thinking and communicating thoughts. The manipulation of the dummy is simultaneous manipulation of the audience’s perception of the ventriloquist as one of them. Miming silence, the ventriloquist shifts her voice to the dummy. The dummy can be manipulated to mouth words, poised to convey a thought or to be thinking. The collective action’s ventriloquy of front persons includes various forms of gang stalking and harassment. The tactical advantage of this kind of stalking and harassment is actualized when the ventriloquy of front persons is acknowledged by the reaction solicited. Reacting by interacting with the dummy, diverts attention from the ventriloquist and cast the respondent as the antagonist of a transgressive narrative. The collective action’s ventriloquy of public and private entities (functionaries) is a different matter. Ventriloquy of our body politic shifts the voice of non- state actors to front entities and their essential functionaries. When spoken or performed, echoes of voice commands (speech acts) produce for the collective action sound effects of legitimacy. Unchallenged or unquestioned affectations of legitimacy are repackaged as authority. http://blog.erace-inc.com/2018/01/collective-action-priviledged/

Words of Wisdom: “IT” is what you are when you are young. Your youth mistakes certainty of the few things that you think you know for knowledge of things that it takes a life time to understand. With time and a few life experiences “IT” becomes the thing you pursue to give your life meaning. Somewhere along the way of having or getting “IT” you ask yourself, ‘Is this “IT”? Panic sets in when you realize that “IT” is your life. Fear and insecurity is that feeling you get when “IT” has not been worth a life time.
