For reasonably intelligent adults who still possess some semblance of critical thinking! Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious. Some people have opinions. Some people have convictions. What we offer is PERSPECTIVE!
I just realized I haven't done the "Hokey Pokey" in over 40 years. I guess when you get older you just forget what it's all about!
On the surface we have the illusion of Individuality, when in actual fact…. deep down…. we are all the same life-force!

10 Warning Signs of Gaslighting

Dear Friends: Gaslighting is a manipulation tactic used to gain power. (Guess who we're talking about!)

Gaslighting is a tactic in which a person or entity, in order to gain more power, makes a victim question their reality.

It works much better than you may think.

Anyone is susceptible to gaslighting, and it is a common technique of abusers, dictators, narcissists, and cult leaders.

It is done slowly, so the victim doesn't realize how much they've been brainwashed. For example, in the movie Gaslight (1944), a man manipulates his wife to the point where she thinks she is losing her mind.

People who gaslight typically use the following techniques:

1. They tell 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 their actions on you!

9. They tell you everyone else is a liar.

10. They tell you that everyone is crazy.

And gradually, over time, it seems to work!

The way I see it anyway!
