If an individual does it, it is generally considered threatening and criminal; but if the government does it, then it is considered prudent (collective)self preservation... They have the sense to realize that we are the enemy even if that point is missed by most of us.... It is true of paranoid personalities too, so far as I can see, that their fear of others is but a projection of their own enmity...

@OmSigDAVID,
How about 'trusting', when carried to an unjustified degree? I can't relate that to stalking and spying, of course.

@roger,
I wonder if psychology has a name for overtrusting.

If they don't, they should. Bernie Madoff called them clients.

There was a pretty neat little science fiction story about a man who had an obsessive feeling he was following someone. I thought the story was called "Naropia", but Google doesn't seem to know about it.

When I have time, I will find it.

We are all following some one who got there first, ate everything good and **** and pissed over everything he couldn't cart off... That is one of the things that makes life such fun...

NPR ran a story some time ago about a girl who lacked the ability to distrust because of a genetic disorder called Williams syndrome.
