We're being "gaslighted" bigtime.

There is an outstanding article explaining "gaslighting" for those who don' t know what it means, its origin, etc., and how we are affected daily by it. It is a long article so I am not posting it, but go to http://www.theospark.net/ and read it. It is well worth the read.

Gaslighting? There is no such thing. It's a conspiracy theory and if you believe it, you are a racist.

I know that’s a new word to some even boomers it seems.

I watched gaslighting in real time, my aunt used to play Munchausen games with my grandmother.

When you light a match in an elevator after dropping a fart, gaslighting.

Call it by whatever the current phrase happens to be in favor. I still refer to such BS, as trying to blow smoke up my ass.

Works just as well today, as it did 50 years ago.

Not quite. Ever see the movie? It's an effort to make someone question the very reality that's right in front of them, plain to see, by means of a barrage of input from others that contradicts that reality. The classic example is to dramatically alter the furniture arrangement in someone's house, and then, when they take note of it and ask how it happened, tell them that it's always been like that, and then ask them if they are feeling okay, and maybe suggest they see a psychiatrist.

If you can get people to relegate their understanding and perception of reality to an external source, you can get them to believe anything. Gaslighting is the main tool for attacking those who have some internal perception of reality still intact.

Reminds me of something that still gives me a smile.

A co-worker was out sick on Friday- the same day her office lease was up, so we moved her.

She came in Monday, unlocked her door (half a dozen of us just happened to be standing around). She got this funny look on her face, closed the door, checked the number, then opened the door and looked again at the empty room.

"Have I been fired"?

We lost it....

What is Gaslighting? Joe Biden won this election. There is no evidence of fraud.

My definition:

Insidious, evil manipulation of speech and/or events with the intention of causing one or a group to question their own perception of reality, thought processes or even sanity.

A political trick ubiquitous in use by democats.

A subtle devious lie.
