The term originates in the systematic psychological manipulation of a victim by her husband in Patrick Hamilton’s 1938 stage play – Gas Light, and the film adaptations released in 1940 and 1944.  In the story, the husband attempts to convince his wife and others that she is insane by manipulating small elements of their environment and insisting that she is mistaken, remembering things incorrectly, or delusional when she points out these changes.  The play’s title alludes to how the abusive husband slowly dims the gas lights in their home, while pretending nothing has changed, in an effort to make his wife doubt her own perceptions.  The wife repeatedly asks her husband to confirm her perceptions about the dimming lights, but in defiance of reality, he keeps insisting that the lights are the same and instead it is she who is going insane.

     We are living in a perpetual state of gas lighting.  The reality that we are being told by the media is at complete odds with what we are seeing with our own two eyes.  And when we question the false reality that we are being presented, or we claim that what we see is that actual reality, we are vilified as racist or bigots or just plain crazy.  You’re not racist.  You’re not crazy.  You’re being gas lighted.

     New York State has twice as many deaths from Covid-19 than any other state, and New York has accounted for one fifth of all Covid-19 deaths, but we are told that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has handled the pandemic better than any other governor.  But if we support policies of Governors whose states had only a fraction of the infections and deaths as New York, we’re called anti-science and want people to die.  So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy?  No, you’re being gas lighted.

     We see mobs of people looting stores, smashing windows, setting cars on fire and burning down buildings, but we are told that these demonstrations are peaceful protests.  And when we call this destruction of our cities riots, we are called racists.  So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy?  No, you’re being gas lighted.

     We see the major problem destroying many inner-cities is crime; murder, gang violence, drug dealing, drive-by shootings, armed robbery, but we are told that it is not crime, but the police that are the problem in the inner-cities.  We are told we must defund the police and remove law enforcement from crime-riddled cities to make them safer.  But if we advocate for more policing in cities overrun by crime, we are accused of being white supremacists and racists.  So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy?  No, you’re being gas lighted.

     The United States of America accepts more immigrants than any other country in the world.  The vast majority of the immigrants are “people of colour”, and these immigrants are enjoying freedom and economic opportunity not available to them in their country of origin, but we are told that the United States is the most racist and oppressive country on the planet, and if we disagree, we are called racist and xenophobic.  So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy?  No, you’re being gas lighted.

     Capitalist countries are the most prosperous countries in the world.  The standard of living is the highest in capitalist countries.  We see more poor people move up the economic ladder to the middle and even the wealthy class through their effort and ability in capitalist countries than any other economic system in the world, but we are told capitalism is an oppressive system designed to keep people down.  So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy?  No, you’re being gas lighted.

     Communist countries killed over 100 million people in the 20th century.  Communist countries strip their citizens of basic human rights, dictate every aspect of their lives, treat their citizens like slaves, and drive their economies into the ground, but we are told that Communism is the fairest, most equitable, freest and most prosperous economic system in the world.  So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy?  No, you’re being gas lighted.

     The most egregious example of gas lighting is the concept of “white fragility”.  You spend your life trying to be a good person, trying to treat people fairly and with respect.  You disavow racism and bigotry in all its forms.  You judge people solely on the content of their character and not by the colour of their skin.  You don’t discriminate based on race or ethnicity.  But you are told you are a racist, not because of something you did or said, but solely because of the colour of your skin.  You know instinctively that charging someone with racism because of their skin color is itself racist.  You know that you are not racist, so you defend yourself and your character, but you are told that your defence of yourself is proof of your racism.  So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy?  No, you’re being gas lighted.

     Gas lighting has become one of the most pervasive and destructive tactics in American politics.  It is the exact opposite of what our political system was meant to be.  It deals in lies and psychological coercion, and not the truth and intellectual discourse.  If you ever ask yourself if you’re crazy, you are not.  Crazy people aren’t sane enough to ask themselves if they’re crazy.  So, trust yourself, believe what’s in your heart.  Trust your eyes over what you are told.  Never listen to the people who tell you that you are crazy, because you are not; you’re being gas lighted.

This is very true as our leftist enemies are practicing forms of asymmetric warfare against the US.
