Paranormal Politics I

Political Ghosts


What makes a web site or a paranormal Investigator the top candidate of scrutiny? Flexing your say on the internet is all the rage.

Story by Frank Palermo Artwork by H.D. Meyers

The politics of belief surrounding paranormal ideas often comes under much scrutiny. Through a detailed examination of the participants, issues, strategies and underlying factors that constitute the contemporary ghost hunting the long hard paranormal debate continues. What do we really know of is all that is strange to us? And does it co-exist with the real world day to day occurrences. Paranormal groups, web sites or Ghost information, tours, Books, Paranormal Radio and Television have all tried to make things in the night more believable and apt to coexist in out world. But as in centuries past the nay sayers and those that seek out personal grudges still exist.

Do EMf detectors really find Ghosts?

People today often criticize the subject of real ghost and UFO's in blogs and guest books. For just as many that say it is all well and fine their are just as many that don't believe what is posted is truth. Some will debunk anything from making charges of faked ghost photos to delusions of the eye of the beholder. Some even try too become Paranormal Police and enforce their own laws of truth and non truth onto those that truly believe.

Not everyone has the same belief system ticking in their brains. It seems everyone in the field is joggying to be the best, either to prove or disprove the beliefs of others. Many paranormal groups splinter off and usually and more often allot of name calling and debunking tends to occur. As people in a free country or on the internet many debunk the truths of others as trying in some way to make themselves and others follow their path of beliefs. Not saying here who is right or who is wrong it is just natural for people to take sides.

Too often I hear of Paranormal Groups from around the world name calling other Ghost Tours, Paranormal Meetup groups and established authors and investigators fakes or un professional in their actions. The problem today is all the name calling and back stabbing that has been openly posted on the internet. All focusing on who's the best or worst, what's fake and in opposition of anyone or anything that they deem to be not acceptable to what is paranormal, and what it means to them. There are certain groups that swear by TAPS ... and others that go out of their way to debunk them. This of course brings allot of things into the spotlight. But these same protagonist don't even know who Hans Holzer is, or a host of writers and investigators who have made great contributions to the field over the years they have set the protocol for what they do. And these persons tend to take what they hear and see on Television or the internet as Paranormal Law.

A wide array of skepticism have circulated for years by which people attempt to discern the Paranormal writers and investigators and determine who's acceptable and who's not. In the broad sense of the word politics these are regarded as power relationships, while in the narrow sense of the word it means the processes by which groups of people make decisions based on who they think is an authority on the subject. Remember: Everyone is entitled to an opinion

Belebe in the supernatural?

Political science (also political studies) is the study of political behavior and examines the acquisition and application of power. Related areas of study include political philosophy, which seeks a rationale for politics and an ethic of public behavior, and public administration, which examines the practices of governance. As paranormal is an term used to describe a wide variety of reported anomalous phenomena. According to the Journal of Parapsychology, the term paranormal describes "any phenomenon that in one or more respects exceeds the limits of what is deemed physically possible according to current scientific assumptions."

Max Weber was a German political economist and sociologist who is considered one of the founders of the modern study of sociology and public administration. He defined power as the ability to impose one's will "even in the face of opposition from others", while Hannah Arendt a German Jewish political theorist. She states that "political power corresponds to the human ability not just to act but to act in concert.

The debunking approach is a response to claims of paranormal phenomena, and consists of finding a "normal" explanation instead of paranormal for the account. The basis for this approach is that the de bunker feels that the normal explanation is the likelier of the two. While the validity of the existence of paranormal phenomena is controversial and debated passionately by both proponents of the paranormal and by skeptics, surveys are useful in determining the beliefs of people in regards to paranormal phenomena.

Blogs and personal opinions on message boards are healthy too and part of the scientific process of forming your own opinions. Before Ghost Hunters and Most Haunted television shows Paranormal investigators were always present. The leading researchers have been overshadowed by these shows. And are now often scrutinized for not living up to those standards. The same goes for web sites and even equipment used i the ghost hunting field.

Paranormal Subjects often come under the watchful eye of those policing the Paranormal Zone on the internet. Often out right poking fun or debunking someone ideas or beliefs. But all this is a testing process. Some Paranormal Enthusiast often become dis believers or flip flop in their opinions also.

Just like the great debate if Ouija boards or evil? Or do they really have any paranormal properties associated to them?

You either agree or disagree on the facts and fictions. Paranormal bashing as many call it is a part of life and part of the process of finding the truth. And a hardcore part of Paranormal investigations.

Ghosyt do they exisit?

 

Frank Palermo is a Paranormal Investigator who investigates Paranormal Investigators proof and facts. " I as a real Ghost Hunter who investigator the research where others have gone before." " Ever searching the real facts behind hauntings and Paranormal Phenomena and their investigators."

Frank Palermo

"Just because Ghosts Hunters say it's haunted is it really haunted?" Says Frank. " I personally think every web site that presents Paranormal evidence is open to scrutiny."
