This tactic is a go-to maneuver deployed by narcissists, sociopaths, and psychopaths.
This is a critically important to understand.

Yes, thank you for drawing attention to this particular subject. It’s key to go ahead and make the distinction between manipulation and Gaslighting.

Gaslighting is an extreme form of manipulation. But, manipulation is not necessarily Gaslighting.

Manipulation seeks to alter a person’s behavior. Gaslighting goes much further in that it seeks to actually alter the person (or people) that it is targeted against.

The backdrop required for a person to engage in Gaslighting is some underlying belief or notion of fundamental ownership of another. This is why the Gaslighter doesn’t see anything wrong with his behavior.

When society at large is viewed in such a manner (by an oligarchy of sorts), one may understand how mass media has been used to engage in “social engineering.”

The term “Gaslighting” came about after a 1944 movie called “Gaslight.”
