What They Did
See my new pages Mind Control: Technology, Techniques, and Politics for more information.
This page contains some descriptions of my harassment and
torture right here in the USA. The original "ugly story"
is in poem format, since at the time it was easier for me
to express what had happened in that form. More details, in
prose, are given in the 3/14/96 update. The letter which announced
my hunger strike also has details in prose.
By the way, to state the obvious, this page is here because
I was tortured and will not be silent about it. I certainly
did not choose to have these things done to me. The events did
awaken me to the truly perilous state of freedom here in the US.
I hope you do not let what has happened color your opinions of
my other works, but unfortunately it did all happen and I will not
pretend it did not.
If you do not believe this kind of thing can happen here, I
recommend the book
Challenging the Secret Government
by Kathryn Olmsted (University of North Carolina Press). See
this page for the unvarnished truth about some of the history,
politics, and technology involved in this type of harassment.

personal notes about this report.

- This is the original poem I posted when I decided to go public with
the story of my torture, called
the ugly story of what "they" did.
After almost a year of the harassment
I had realized that nothing was going to happen if I kept it quiet, and that
I might easily ``disappear'' without people knowing about what had happened.

A private citizen can now buy an

``technology that did not exist'' is now on the open market.
- To protest my torture and official non-response I went on a
hunger strike starting Nov. 8, 1996. I restricted my food intake to only include
water, unsweetened teas, and some vitamin tablets. This is
a letter I mailed to various lawmakers,
human rights groups, and news organizations.
After 17 days, on Nov. 25, 1996, I ended the hunger strike.
It served to draw a considerable
amount of attention to the types of crimes I have been a victim of.
- An update as of 5/08/97. A little bit of good news: I have finished my dissertation
and graduated with my Ph.D. in computer science.
- An update as of 11/30/97. U.S. show trials.
- An update as of 5/3/99. Is it just me, or is the
propaganda and repression becoming ever more transparent?
Some links to related sites:
- Virginia Commonwealth University has a site with details of
segregation in Richmond, Virginia. This linked page focuses on educational aspects.
Segregation was America's official apartheid system, and Virginia was far from the
only place where it was practiced. The system was widely supported by ``prominent
citizens'' -- who at the same time spouted about freedom, justice, and liberty.
It was enforced with the constant threat of violence. The mainstream press
supported it for years, as did mainstream churches. A different page on the
web gives a glimpse of
what happened to white women who opposed segregation.
This was not that long
ago, and the people who ran this massive repressive system for
the most part stayed in
power after the courts overturned it. Though some truly changed their ways,
the mindsets for such conspiracies of thuggery and exploitation are still in place.
Much of the current repression is not specifically focused on race, although
there were always other
aspects to the repression for people who ``needed to be put in their
place.'' (And there is no denying that race is still a huge factor in
The repressive system has gone
covert, where it can be denied and the courts can ignore it -- willfully or not.
This also makes it easy for people who do not want to believe such things
The current exploiters have figured out what they cannot say openly anymore,
so hatred is spewed in codewords and between the lines. And the repression
is as real as it can be.

The Revolution in Military Affairs and Conflict Short of War, by Steven Metz
and James O. Kievit, July 25, 1994. Also available in
ASCII format. [If these versions are not available at the Army site,
formatted copy can be found here] This is a frequently-cited paper from the Strategic Studies
Institute at the Army War College. It discusses some of
the issues, especially ethical issues,
that follow from nonlethal technologies and their applications:
"The advantage of directed energy weapons over conventional ones
[in drug interdiction] is deniability. Against whom is such deniability
aimed? ...deniability must be aimed at the American people, who do not
sanction the imprisonment, much less execution, of individuals without
The authors envision a "future history" of a revolution of
techno-authoritarianism, carried out in stages to alter some basic values
of Americans that might stand in the way.

and the importance of data fusion.]

I do not agree with everything there, as for example I think the
Second Amendment is a fundamental protection against oppression, but
there are many insightful articles. Centrism in overlooking tyranny
is more than a vice, it is collaboration. (After reading the article, consider

They called the condition ``sluggish schizophrenia, a form
of schizophrenia where the symptoms are subtle, latent or only
apparent to the skilled eye of the psychiatrist.''
Soviet dissidents who
``wanted to reform the system and claimed that they had the personal
vision to do it....were exhibiting the text-book symptoms of sluggish
