Social Manipulation, Control, Harassment, and Fee Generation by HOAs and the People Who Brought Them To Us. (Copyright 2008 Koreen Kruger)
When you consider that powerful, influential S.I.G.s (Special Interest Groups) comprised of the U.L.I. (Urban Land Institute), the N.A.R. (National Association of Realtors), the C.A.I (Community Association Institute), and the N.A.H.B. (National Association of Home Builders) brought the concept of "HomeOwnerAssociations" into concrete reality, it's not surprising that HOAs are structured to enforce social-psychological methods of persuasion and apply group conformity pressures in artificial cultural constructs. "Covenant Enforcement" sounds very biblical and religious in it's implications. I will never forget one "violation letter" to us from a Florida "LCAM" stating "Our job is covenant enforcement!" It still makes me furious. There is already enough social and religious persecution without "covenant enforcement" harassment and persecution!
HOAs are experiments in social control and manipulation of human behavior primarily to generate income and fees for their perpetrators. Their blatant self-interests are forcing the compliance of "homeowners" subjected to collusive and coercive pursuasive harassment reinforced by threats of fines, liens, foreclosures and loss of their "homes." The HOA "board members" are pawns in this high-powered political legal game! The more stupid, greedy, and controlling the "board members" are the better they like it - hence the "classes" they teach at their "institutes." No doubt the BoDs are thrown a few bones now and then at the expense of the other "homeowners." The more one studies the methods of these "professionals" the more insidious these HOA schemes are revealed to actually be!
We seriously need to stop this cancer that "runs with the land" before it really gets out of hand and there are NO "property rights" left anywhere - only CIDs, CDDs, POAs, and PUDs with HOA BoDs, PCAMs, LCAMs, CAMs, the C.A.I. lawyers and judges, U.L.I. developers, N.A.H.B, builders, and NAR Realtors! Does this Nightmare never end?
