Our second stepping stone was (and is) the exhaustive and scholarly research into "non-lethal weapons," (clearly the birthplace of the living nightmare Ms. Naylor and an estimated three million North Americans are living,) ... of law student Cheryl Welsh, mindjustice.org
The third stepping stone was the 2001 book about vigilante stalking by David Lawson, a private investigator, titled "Terrorist Stalking in America", reviewed here: multistalkervictims.org/terstalk.htm
Ms. Naylor's book, with some material provided by Cheryl Welsh, is clearly a fourth and major stepping stone, by which the targets of vigilante stalking and electronic mind/body harassment hope to see the day the criminals are stripped of their cover, and justice will be served.
Gloria starts to notice weird things going on around her and her house, to include lots of traffic on her secluded part of the island. She also realizes she's being followed and that someone is entering her house and tapping into her computer. It gets to a point where Gloria can't trust her friends or converse with those online because she's afraid of who's watching her. When she can't take the harassment any longer, she cuts her time on the island short and moves back home to her brownstone in New York. Sadly, things do not end and Gloria must find a way to return to the normalcy of her life.
While reading 1996, the reader is fully aware that this book is a memoir of sorts as it's written in first person, giving Naylor's actual experiences through this ordeal, in which she's the main character. However, it's also fictionalized in that she obviously doesn't really know what's going on next door, across the street or at the NSA for example. It is an intriguing story, reminiscent of conspiracy theory type movies popular in the last few decades.Read more ›
Thank you Gloria-

Because of the number of snitches that now exist we have what can best be described as a stasi police state highly similar to Russia's police state or the third Reich, where citizens are used against citizens. This is an exercize in government control. Sure, upon research you'll find corporations and groups are involved, but because of its widespread nature and invincibility, the government and our tax dollars are at its root.
A warning to those without knowledge of what's going on. It is suggested you type words like gang stalking or organized stalking into Google or other search vehicle to get yourself up to speed.
