Kafkatrapping

The way the kafkatrap operates in religious and political argument.
Real crimes -- actual transgressions against flesh-and-blood individuals -- are generally not specified. The aim of the kafkatrap is to produce a kind of free-floating guilt in the subject, a conviction of sinfulness that can be manipulated by the operator to make the subject say and do things that are convenient to the operator's personal, political, or religious goals. Ideally, the subject will then internalize these demands, and then become complicit in the kafkatrapping of others. -- Armed and Dangerous » Blog Archive » Kafkatrapping
