John A. Keel on Gangstalking
A correspondent has alerted me to several intriguing documents that can be found on a website devoted to the research of the late journalist, John A. Keel, who was without a doubt the preeminent investigator of the paranormal in the 20th century. If you’ve read my recent Fortean Times article, “Strange Tales of Homeland Security” (in the Sep. 2013 edition of FT), you might wonder when the phenomenon known as “gangstalking” actually began. Some researchers speculate that the harassment techniques we now associate with organized gangstalking can be traced back to the heinous activities of the Ku Klux Klan just after the Civil War. Others claim that the National Security lockdown mentality that emerged in the aftermath of 9/11 led to the out of control gangstalking now threatening (or, in far too many cases, outright eliminating) our freedoms. Of course, at this point one can’t be certain of the phenomenon’s true origins; however, it appears that such organized harassment was indeed operative at least as far back as the 1960s and ‘70s when John A. Keel was at the peak of his investigative prowess. By clicking HERE and HERE, you will see Keel’s notes on a phenomenon that certainly bears an eerie resemblance to what we now know as “gangstalking.” It’s interesting to note that these documents also serve as evidence of Keel’s meticulousness as a researcher of cryptoscatological subjects.
