Seemingly unrelated on the face of it, the case of the so called ‘Fort Dix 5’ - a case of entrapment of two brothers, save for post 9/11 rationale used by the FBI to employ extreme measures and criminal ‘plant’ to try to get them to follow his nefarious planning. This presumably with FBI counter terrorism unit making some sort of deal with the ‘plant’ in light of a criminal record.
The institutionalization of this mindset is also reflected in the ‘Counterinsurgency Manual’, which in scathing critique by the Network of Concerned Anthropologists, cites the conflation of practices in anthropology with politicized militarism. This seems strikingly similar to both the FBI counter terrorism practices as well as attitudes toward the relationship of a woman to her doctor, the medical insurance debacles and politicization of a procedure that no woman would want to go through in the first place. A woman having no recourse to effective birth control and care much less rape or abuse with politicians manipulating public opinion for personal gain according to extrapolations of and for ideological advantage.
That is to say, all of these, in my opinion, are emblematic of a profound misplacement with commensurately profound impacts. Because of the distortions constantly folded and re-folded into what would otherwise be personal and societal introspection into longstanding perspectives and practices that give rise to intensification of dehumanizing ideologies, they beget ever more practices of the same in self-fulfilling prophesies - which are not prophesies in the real sense at all and need to be called out and halted.
