To pervert is to introduce distortion into natural use.
To subvert, is to undermine the intention of an organisation and change it to something else. Even to the extent of taking a benign or useful purpose and changing to a harmful purpose, or just rendering the useful purpose, useless.
Examples of perversion would include voyeurism, of any human activity which is normally private, such as bodily eliminations and sexual behaviour.
A further example of perversion would be deliberate sabotage of a stable, heterosexual relationship, in order to isolate the female so that she can then be used for prostitution.
Subversion can be applied to any social organisation, such as personal, such as the family, or social structures, such as schools, medical services, legal, police, communications industries, businesses, political, banks, transport. In the case of family relationships, the family structure can be undermined by individuals being blackmailed or intimidated to betray their relatives, thus destroying family trust and inter-dependence. This was a favourite method in both communist Russia and China and Nazi Germany where children especially were coached to betray their relatives, even their parents.
Subversion in organisations are primarily criminal and/or espionage techniques, where an agent is placed, or more often, an employee is identified who can be blackmailed or intimidated to betray his employer/work colleagues/customers/the correct performance of his profession, for a purpose other than the firm’s intention. The ideal target is someone reasonably high in the hierarchy – such as a middle manager. The results of subversion will be the purpose of the organisation will become biased in favour of the interests of the subverter. One can expect that confidential records will no longer be confidential, will be used for criminal purposes, and records will be altered or lost to promote the subverters agenda. Communications will be interfered with, lost in transit or altered. Medical staff will withold diagnosis, give wrong diagnosis, withhold correct treatment or give harmful treatment . In some cases where withholding the correct treatment can result in death, causing death. The police may ignore crimes but prosecute citizens who complain of crimes being committed against them. Lawyers may fail to give correct advice and give wrong advice thus sabotaging their client’s interests. Tradesmen may give bad service, cause damage, leave jobs uncompleted and overcharge. Utilities may over-bill and refuse to deal with customer complaints. The end result is that institutions which have been corrupted in this way can no longer be trusted to perform the services which are expected of them.
All the above, and the examples are by no means complete, have been experienced by Targeted Individuals, which indicates that all the organisations which treat their customers in this way, have been infiltrated, subverted and cannot be trusted to provide the services required of them.
Espionage is all about dirty tricks. They don’t play fair. Get out of your head the fairy tale idea that we are living under rule of law upheld by our authorities. That if you have got nothing to hide you have nothing to fear. That if you obey the law, live within standard moral boundaries and are not a troublemaker, the authorities will leave you alone. When a spy is set on a target they thoroughly research that person, which includes all their relatives, intimates, friends and associates, alongwith that persons environment. (And while they are wasting all this time and resources on the law-abiding they are not going after terrorists and criminals). I suspect the first thing they look for are any crimes that person or any of their associates have committed. Crimes that have not been detected are preferred as this is the easiest blackmail route to gain compliance. It will be a very unusual person indeed who has not broken the law at sometime, and our authorities supply a never ending supply of fiddling laws to attempt to turn all of us into criminals at their convenience. Even if the Target had never done anything, it would be very unusual if no-one close to them – a friend or a relative had not slipped up somewhere. But do not imagine that being law-abiding, coming from an honest law-abiding family and being very careful who your friends are will afford you any protection. If the spies can’t find any illegal act they can use for blackmail purposes, they will just fit you up with a crime you had not committed. Any suggestions on how to protect yourself from this tactic would be most helpful.
