If you’re unfamiliar with the term “gaslighting” here’s a quick refresher from Wikipedia:
Gaslighting is a form of psychological manipulation in which a person or a group covertly sows seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or group, making them question their own memory, perception, or judgment, often evoking in them cognitive dissonance and other changes, including low self-esteem.Let’s consider what’s been going on with the whole Covid craziness and you decide for yourself (if you can still think straight) if what’s been happening meets the definition of gaslighting or not. Way back in March the US Surgeon General, the CDC, the WHO and a host of other medical “experts” proclaimed that healthy people did not need to wear face masks.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease is on record in March saying that wearing face masks was pointless but they might make people feel better.
Then, all of a sudden with absolutely NO scientific studies or medical documentation whatsoever this cast of “medical experts” changed their tune in unison, almost overnight in early April. Mysteriously ALL the experts who had previously cautioned against wearing face masks suddenly decided that wearing a face mask could mean the difference between life and death!
That’s odd don’t you think?
No exhaustive clinical studies supported this. No multi-trial analytic studies. Nothing. Then there was this little nugget that for any critically thinking person should be a dead giveaway that something was very wrong.
This killer virus, this threat to global humanity, this silent but extremely deadly pathogen could miraculously be contained with any old face covering whatsoever! An old cut up t shirt, a cloth bandana, an old wash cloth, virtually anything would do just as long as you covered your face. OK, so you’re going to play it safe and get yourself a store bought “surgical” face mask. Then you notice this little gem printed on the back of the box:
“. . . will not provide any protection against COVID-19 (coronavirus)”
What’s up with that? My guess is the lawyers required this disclaimer to be on the box since the surgical masks are so porous most any virus will easily pass through the material. So why wear a face mask?
Feeling a little crazy? A little discombobulated by all this doubletalk psychobabble insanity? Welcome to the wonderful world of gaslighting! But it’s not limited to facemasks of course. We were told the lockdowns would flatten the curve and only be necessary for a few weeks. Then they were extended for months and months.
Lo and behold the World Health Organization (WHO) decided on October 11th that Lockdowns don’t work!
Another flip flop. But this one has destroyed mom and pop businesses by the tens of thousands driving hard working American’s into economic ruin and poverty. Opps, guess the “experts” made a mistake. It was no mistake but millions will live with the consequences for the rest of their lives.
But wait, there’s more. . .
We were told the virus was so virulent that millions in America would die if we didn’t follow the experts guidance. But that didn’t happen. In fact the CDC has now admitted that the Covid virus is very similar to a typical flu bug.
Opps, guess the experts made another mistake. We all pay a dear price for the multiple mistakes of the so called experts and they blithely go on about their lives as if nothing happened. They destroy countless lives but they still get their paychecks, their health care, their pensions, their bonuses. Life goes on pretty much the same for them, but not for us.
I don’t believe these are mistakes at all. I believe they are part of a coldly calculated heartless plan to use malevolent psychological techniques like gaslighting to make people question their own memory, perception, judgment, and evoke cognitive dissonance and other changes, including low self-esteem.
A population emotionally and psychologically degraded is much easier to “nudge” toward the globalist, one-world dream the tyrants have for our nation. We can’t let that happen. I will not comply!
