In 2017, people do not want to give their name to a stranger.
In 2017, people do not want to tell a stranger even which part of town they live in until relatively assured that you are not an adherent of the “any back any stab blackmail culture of 2017”.
In 2017, a new acquaintance or contact will very often wait until the last minute to agree on a precise location of meeting, not primarily due to the convenient possibility due to cell phones, but more to avoid having that location known too far in advance and as a function of which some third parties might obtain this information and come to harass them.
In 2017, without reassurance that you are not an unwilling (or formerly unwilling) adherent of the “any back any stab blackmail culture of 2017”, people do not want to tell a stranger what company they work for.
In other cases, the precise opposite applies, where signs of adherence to the “any back any stab blackmail culture of 2017” are required before a new acquaintance will desist with psychological attacks involving numerous highly practiced and habitually pre-meditated means of eliciting stress in another person (at times combined with externally directed neuroweapons) until their subservience to this “any back any stab blackmail culture of 2017” has been thoroughly demonstrated, which at times is inclusive of resistance towards any positive statements of the freedom or individuality of the offending party.
In 2017, people often do not even want to reveal so much as their profession or main interests.
In 2017, people often do not want to reveal to a stranger so much as the university or other post-secondary training or skills building they have engaged in.
Over 20 years, I worked in services professions in some different countries. I have literally met and had conversations with perhaps some tens of thousands of people across some dozens of countries (ranging from tens of seconds to days or near lifetimes, but excluding simple hello/goodbye/thank you exchanges with someone at a shop or giving directions).
Over much of that period, it was customary to exchange names, place of origin, and rapidly work through some other basics like what you studied or do for work, your interests, and how they hell it came to pass that the two of you ended up in this same place and are now speaking.
In 2017, some years into the spread of the “any stab any back blackmail culture” where “any maybe leader” is harassed from any any angle that can portray them in any possible negative light, people who meet a stranger are cautious to give their name, do not want to say even where they are from, do not want to say even what their main profession is, are hesitant to reveal interests, are fearful to express political opinions in a way that I am highly familiar with from extremely politically unfree countries (e.g. China, where politics is booooorrrrring).
And, most definitely, people who meet a stranger often do not want to provide information that could lead you to people they know, until they have some assurance regarding adherence to the “any back any stab blackmail culture of 2017”.
Some people would like to primarily blame social media and the internet for making this all possible. They make for a handy scapegoat for those who abused their positions to amass volumes of information on all individuals (clearly by now well in excess of the 5000/person database that formerly attracted much criticism and antagonism from a public that could hardly believe any government could consider such an evil thing as to amass 5000 datapoints on every citizen under the assumption that this would obviously and could only be abused). This amassed information was used to mine for any possible angle to convince a person that they were fucked over in some manner, for example, any resistance to opening up on any matter at any time was then seen as an opportunity to make any claim of guilt and to tar some people in any sort of way. In combination with extensive other information collected on individuals, this was then used to progressively extract compliance in numerous regards, to the extent that “any maybe leader” now has to deal with essentially 24/7 harassment in public – harassment that is individually tailored on the basis of this extensive psychometric information that is in at least one but presumably very numerous databases by now.
How the hell is that in the interest of any one around here?
“Any back any stab blackmail culture” is a way to bring things down, not to build them up.
It is not how it was. Some people are in a better position than others to KNOW that.
“Any back any stab blackmail culture of 2017” is another way to express the nature of the informal quasi-slave puppet army that has been conscripted against their will and have learned to love as master influences which formerly enslaved them.
(P.S. – it must be explicitly noted that the “quasi-slave puppet army” aspect of things is explicitly NOT a suggestion towards impunity or clearance against all responsibility of acts perpetrated by slave puppets. This must be stated explicitly, in 2017.)
(P.P.S – I explicitly note that I have not mentioned use of neuroweapons in directing such acts as tend to be related to the “any back any stab blackmail culture of 2017”.)
