GasLit Trolls

Previously in this series: 

What gas-lighting IS and what gas-lighting is NOT

gerund or present participle: gaslighting

   “ manipulate (someone) by psychological means into doubting their own sanity. ”

from Google definitions 

“Gaslighting is a form of manipulation that seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or members of a group, hoping to make targets question their own memory, perception, and sanity. Using persistent denial, misdirection, contradiction, and lying, it attempts to destabilize the target and delegitimize the target's belief."

The NPD favourite trick is to convince people that a person who exposed them or who the NPD fears will expose them, is insane. That is called gas-lighting by proxy. To convince a person that they are themself insane is called gas-lighting.

Gas-lighting is NOT exposing a troll / NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder).

Gas-lighting is NOT a person incapable of assimilating Reality because it differs from their delusion (cognitive dissonance).

Trolls (behaviour based) and NPD (outlook based) go hand in hand.

NPD includes the inability to assess reality because to do so denies the excuse to bully their chosen victim. NPD includes behaviour of not letting go of a chosen victim even after the victim has exposed the bully. NPD includes behaviour of victim-blaming. This includes labelling the victim with the same behaviour which the NPD is themself doing. It is a method of self-boosting the NPDs ego at the cost of the victims reputation. It is a method of persuading people to ignore the victim and therefore refuse the reality that the NPD has been discredited for abusive behaviour. What this behaviour does is forces observers into three main camps with two additional camps.

Those FOR and those AGAINST are divisionary tactics, divide and conquer is a favourite game of the NPD. The third camp are those who refuse to take sides and step back from the equation, not wanting to get involved.

There is also a fourth group who recognise the situation for what it is and support the victim discreetly so as not to attract attention of the NPD and so as to help the victim detach from the ‘game’ played upon them by the NPD.

A fifth group are the same but they attempt to detract the NDP from playing the game upon the victim. This is more dangerous as it involves energetically with a known NPD.  

The NPD favourite trick is to convince people that a person who exposed them or who the NPD fears will expose them, is insane. That is called gas-lighting by proxy. To convince a person that they are themself insane is called gas-lighting.

“Instances may range from the denial by an abuser that previous abusive incidents ever occurred up to the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim.”

Disorientation includes use of StrawMan Arguments to distract form the main focal point of a Troll-Slayers argument / exposition. A favourite trick among Trolls is for the group to alternate methods of attack so that different members of the gang are using different strawman arguments to distract the target in attempt to gain leverage and upset them by ridiculing anything they have written or said in a fluster. The manipulation of a target into a “mentally impaired state” does not mean the target is mentally ill, simply they are being purposefully confused which can happen to anybody - these forms of attack are designed to do just exactly that. If done by Police this is an interrogation technique which has been made illegal due to the observed short- and long-term effects on the victims cognitive abilities. It is trauma inducing and recognized that it destabilizes people and is a cause for PTSD Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

On web forums it creates an emotional response in the target which is then followed up by the trolls describing the emotionally upset person as a troll on their forum, provoking them to lose their balance. The only way to survive this is to recognize the other forum users as trolls and leave the forum immediately. Attempting to hold your cool because of your moral superiority is going to get you no-where with people of entrenched mindsets whose agenda is not to have a civil conversation but to play an energy-game of ego control and domination superiority.

Unfortunately very often they can not recognize this is what they are doing themselves because trolls genuinely are that stupid and because NPD genuinely are that self-absorbed and self-righteous. Remember that it is a classified mental health illness. An aspect of which is to enjoy relative positions of authority and exploit anyone they can get away with.

This reveals a major flaw in any hierarchy based society because the psychopaths gravitate toward positions from which they can exploit others and surround themselves with reinforcements, their “like-minded” gang. They describe themselves as ‘society’, interestingly not ‘community’ because the concepts differ sufficiently that ‘community’ includes anybody in the wider sense of people whereas a society is a club with rules and membership. 

You are not dealing with sane, rational people. you are dealing with organized mobs of psychopaths led by a charismatic bully who the others fear and envy. This fear and envy is a thing they describe by mis-using the word ‘respect’, which when used properly does have another meaning altogether. Respect is earned, trust is earned, these are not given to someone simply because they have a role in a society.
