The Perfect Weed for this Spoiling Soil: The Ideology, Orientation, Organization, Cohesion, Social Control, and Deleterious Effects of Pseudolaw Social Constructs

Donald J. Netolitzky, PhD, K.C. 


Pseudolaw is a system of not-law rules that has become broadly disseminated, worldwide. Pseudolaw promises its users extraordinary empowerment, via a secret law that is concealed from the public. This article introduces pseudolaw, its known characteristics, and discusses the relationship between pseudolaw and religion.

The social character and organization of pseudolaw populations and individual users is only poorly understood. This article introduces six studies on that subject, collected in this special issue of the International Journal of Coercion, Abuse, and Manipulation.
