Gaslighting is a brainwashing strategy perpetrated by highly manipulative narcissists who live secretly and undetected in our society. Like child molesters seeking prey, gaslighters have a keen eye for spotting vulnerable personality types who are susceptible to their pretend altruism, affection and promises of protection.
Gaslighters achieve complete control by manipulating the environment so their victims identify with an overwhelming and incurable psychological problem, which they never had, or was only a minor affliction. The result of implanting an illness or disorder, and rendering a person helpless over it, is unfathomable distress, insecurity and paranoia. Worst are the feelings of despair and powerlessness.
Descending into an emotional world of hopelessness and isolation, the victim is manipulated into seeking protection and solace from the very person who orchestrated their incapacitation.
Gaslighting is everywhere: secretly lurking behind the locked doors of politicians, clergy members, husbands, wives and even parents. Gaslighters feed off a person, people, or a society that is devoid of hope and full of anxiety. Only with such vulnerable people can the gaslighter play out their enchanting but mercilessly heinous emotional crimes.
