See this story. Someone bought the domain name which when clicked will re-direct to a Psychology Today article on gaslighting. Gaslighting is tactic used by cult leaders, abusers and dictators to get people to question their own reality. The 11 techniques are as follows. Sound familiar?

1. They tell you blatant lies.
2. They deny they ever said something, even though you have proof.
3. They use what is near and dear to you as ammunition.
4. They wear you down over time.
5. Their actions do not match their words.
6. They throw in positive reinforcement to confuse you.

7. They know confusion weakens people.
8. They project.
9. They try to align people against you.
10. They tell you or others that you are crazy.
11. They tell you everyone else is a liar. By telling you that everyone else (your family, the media) is a liar, it again makes you question your reality.
