SOUND Mind Control Slave In State of Sweden

Mind Control
Sound Control
Sound Torture
Sound Brainwashing

Usually you can expect hear about these methods in different experiments in military and prison camps or psychiatry hospitals or some institutions observed by projects leaders or doctors and prison guards.

This reality is reality in State of Sweden because these methods has moving out from these enviroments out on the streets in Sweden and public domain and people on streets, in food stores, neighbors, pharmacies, fireworkers,, ambulances, car drivers, swedish police, military defense, social services, employment agency, healthcare and psychiatry, radio, media and tv broadcasting.

This is today´s gangstalking and psychological warfare or (spiritual warfare) in the open democracy and going on for 24/7.

 

Sound torture is a type of psychological warfare used to break the will of prisoners using loud music or white noise. Today this have moved out to the public domain.

Conclusion: After 6 years of sound torture, sound mind control and brainwashing there must be a hidden political agenda or a old ancient script that´s running humans mind, either it is a stalking spirit, or The Matrix that´is running and controls peoples minds and this Matrix is humans “mind prison or slaves of the mind”, and when these earlier experiments in military and prison camps or psychiatry hospitals or some institutions which was observed by projects leaders or doctors and prison guards today moving out to the streets and public domains, it morely reveals the world more and more acting like a big mind slave prison. People are behaving like sadistic prison guards by participating in this sound tormenting and you don´t need to be rocket scientist to understand something or somwhow is hijacked in Sweden, by a running script i the subconsiuousness mind or a Matrix. When you see these actions taking place every day and even see how this Matrix using children there is something that can use everyone and anytime and anyhow. It is like everybody freely has chosen to particopating in a national horror movie including sound horror psychology, sound wickedness psychology, sound terror psychology, sound torture, noise harassment.

Do you know the similarities with Orwells double-speaking and gangstalking noise harassment and targeted indivudals?

Outcome of Orwells double speaking; The person using doublespeak hopes that people do not notice the word/ reality gap. The outcome of doublespeak, in fact, the purpose of doublespeak, is to “… mislead, distort, deceive, inflate, circumvent, obfuscate.” (thought stopping and thought policing)

Outcome of sound torture and nosie harassment: Sound torture: The most common way of confusing someone is simply to overload their minds with constant sensitizing sound by targetting their minds day and night.  Just keeping going  until they crack. Dissuasion: Targetting the mind with schizoprenia psychology. Voice To Skull Technology V2K- Voice to skull device or technology – is a weapon used for transmitting voices with low or high frequencies. Voices can be commands or harassment attacks that may look like the Targeted Individual’s own voice. V2K is a form of syntehic telapathy. They create “sickness” by make you believe your hear vocies, when they are they who transmitting these voices, sounds or music chorus. State of Sweden using same “looping” music chorus. They transmitting same music chorus into your apartment for hours, both indoors amd outdoors. They hijacking your mind (occupying by targetting the mind with constant looping sound and noise), reality (manupulation and gaslighting) and sleep (sleep deprivation) and then fear mongering at same time and inducing constant stress and create false amygdala attack. With this combination of psychology warfare methods they trying to create a state of mind there you are Delusional Paranoid Schizophrenic and make reality to surreality and make you suffering so much so the the mind splits in a new alter ego they then can control. All noise harassment or sound tortore is in fact noise interference and communication interference with your brain. This is what they trying to create;”Weaves real people and events into the delusion” and this is same as; The paranoid schizophrenic weaves real people and events into the delusion. The problem is, while you and I may be able to distinguish delusion from reality, a paranoid schizophrenic can’t. These people creating a fake enviroment and weaving in their looping actions, daily sensitizing actions,  daily at same time actions and they creating actions simultaneously as you do something, live interference when you listen to radio shows or watching news or live imitating/mirroring some content from a phone converrsation or something you just have or earlier have with friend or family.

 The paranoid schizophrenic weaves real people and events into the delusion and this democracy is purposely creating this enviroment for targetting indidudals. Targetted individuals are not delusioinal individuals, they are empowered individuals and they are awakening from this delusional Matrix and therefore they targetting them furoiusly. Targetting individuals living with both mind games and in a psychological warfare every day and they will not be the one who look foolish in the end.

Evil and drakness weaves real people and events into the delusion – and how is he doing?

Constant interference with your mind – noise, sound, communication interference, mind control, mind games, gaslighting, mirroring, sleep deprivation and hypnopaedia, imitating, mimicking, gesturing…..this world want´s keep you sick, keep you in lack of knowledge, this world want keep people in mode and state of fear and looping mind control

State of Sweden targetting people to make them sick, drive them to insanity and crazy, institutionlized by creating a fake reality.

Dissuasion may occur accidentally or deliberately. Accidental dissuasion occurs, when the person reads, hears or sees something that is not targeted directly at them, but causes them to think the wrong thoughts.

misleading, distortion, disorientation, consfusing, hindering, obstructing, destorying, damaging, killing

There will timed loud noise responses, in order to wake you up out of this state of rest and/or sleep.

In quite a few sites mentioned acoustic shadowing where affected person suddenly notices that someone in the apartment above or below starts following you. Noise campaign involves different sounds: as if book being dropped, hitting two metal objects, furniture moved or dragged, heavy suitcase being put down, door slammed, metal object being rolled or bounced on the floor, tapping, squeaking, scratching, stumbling, vacuuming multiple times per day especially near radiators, all construction sounds like drills, hammers, deliberately heavy steps while walking, etc) that that could be tolerated once in a while, but cumulatively and systematically cause enormous strain and stress.

 

From my observation first step of such harassment is to make sure target is aware of aversive nature of acoustic intrusions. So it will be louder, noisier and more pervasive until you cannot bear it. The noise transforms to being annoying very fast since it is unwanted and deliberate. If it’s coupled with the awareness that you’re being watched in your presumed private space it surely to create panic, not to mention that usually you’re dealing with multiple types of disruption tactics at the same time. At first you might think that you’re under some investigation and it will stop as soon as this authority is made sure that you’re not guilty of anything. It will take some time for targeted person to realize punitive goal of such measure, meaning there is nothing in targets power to stop it – any of such efforts will probably be utilized against the target.

The reason it’s even more effective is that human ear has evolved to detect direction of sound from horizontal sources. It has trouble pinpointing sound from above or below. Sound coming from above will create appearance of being directly above you or below you. Hard to say how accurate localization equipment is in the hand of torturers, but this points to exploitation of another inefficiency of human perceptive system, thus amplifying effect and making torture easier to execute, not to mention that they are able to create very convincing effect of target being watched as if target is on the palm of someones hand where acoustic harassment shadows target in such sophisticated ways that is impossible to comprehend with any existing to humans approach meaning localization itself

 

After a while target becomes aware of noise and sensitized to it. He tries to avoid it by moving to another place or room. Footsteps and banging will follow. There is no escape. If you go to the bathroom they will go there too. Kitchen they will follow. Special attention is paid to sleep and waking time. I’ve read somewhere that it suppose to predispose target in bad mood for the day and disrupt their sleep for the night. It sounds improbable and crazy having in mind how many human work hours are needed to put into this. I guess it depends on resiliency of the target, how much time he spends there and ability of local authority to mobilize and motivate local community. There has to be quite pervasive rumors creating degrading stigma of the target among neighbors in order for it to continue. It is especially interesting the case when there are multiple occupants living in apartment, so target identification becomes priority and situational awareness of other occupants.

The effects of noise can range from habitat exclusion to changes in the vocal parameters of communication sounds to extreme behavioural responses leading to death.

I have earlier described how they have surrounded my apartment with constant sound torture and noise harassmnet 24/7 and this is like a torture chamber room 101 as in Orwells novel “1984”, surveilled by Hitler technology, brainwashed by a culterleader and tormenting by Satan. Orwell (The totallarian Hive Mind), Cult leader psychology and constant brainwashing with through wall technology, constant Hitler surveillance, stalking, persecution, shadowing, constant tormenting by sound of Satan psychology.

In essence apartment becomes “Skinner box” where “thought stopping” (archive.org) by acoustic stimulus is used to stop critical thinking and continuously disrupt thought process. Similar technique is used by cults to brainwash inductees.

The combination Skinner Box, Thought stopping is same as Orwell Torure chamber and Thought policing – and the hidden purpose with this “thought stopping or thought policing” is to stop independent thinking by your own or stop critical thinking. What they want is to stop human thinking outside the box or outside their Matrix. So in this type of world (technocratic society) it is a crime to think independently. Gangstalking today is what Orwell writes about in his novell “1984”; It is a police state, with helicopters monitoring people’s activities, even watching through their windows. It is the “ThinkPol,” the Thought Police.

The idea of “doublethink” emerges as an important consequence of the Party’s massive campaign of large-scale psychological manipulation. Simply put, doublethink is the ability to hold two contradictory ideas in one’s mind at the same time. As the Party’s mind-control techniques break down an individual’s capacity for independent thought.

“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power.

Double-speaking and Orwells doublethinking exist in Sweden to keep masses in a state that allows complete total manipulation to keep them conditiond in the matrix or a reality tunnel of the reailty

Outcome of Orwells double speaking; The person using doublespeak hopes that people do not notice the word/ reality gap. The outcome of doublespeak, in fact, the purpose of doublespeak, is to “… mislead, distort, deceive, inflate, circumvent, obfuscate.” (thought stopping and thought policing)

Outcome of sound torture and nosie harassment: Dissuasion

The principle of ‘thought stopping’ is first to stop people thinking about those things which will distract or dissuade them from what they are supposed to be thinking.

Undesirable thinking can come in two forms. First, the person may be distracted by innocuous thoughts when they should be concentrating on a particular area. When I am reading or meditating, for example, someone talking nearby would be a distraction and cause my mind to wander onto the subjects about which they are talking. Distraction is thus just a block to conversion, slowing it down.

Occupation of the mind with constant sound

Another simple way of limiting undesirable thoughts is to keep people busy with all kinds of physical and mental activities that gives them little time for any action, talk or reflection that may lead to wrong thoughts

Sleep deprivation and sound torture

Disturbing sleep is a particularly effective method of creating mental and physical exhaustion. Our sleep is characterized by periods of deep and light sleep. This is particularly disorienting if we are disturbed during the periods of deep sleep. SLEEP DEPRIVATION: timing noise campaigns at the time the target normally sleeps. Neighbor dropping heavy things above your head. Loud talking outside window. Door-slamming. Late overflies with helicopters. Firing firecrackers for 20 days outside your window. Barking dogs, Honking hornes, High pitch screaming children after midnight. Sound torture (intense sound like grasstrimmer) and looping same music chorus when you trying to sleep. Start washing machine after midnight in same time you visiting bathroom before you going to sleep. All have one thing common; to create sound and nosie harassment or communication interference and noise interference. And they targetting the mind even night time with dropping heavy things on the floor or loud screamings or drop heavy things on the floor and then laughing high (to provoke). Playing music chorus. Transmitting sounds of grasstrimmer and sirens. And they also hacking your computer and start changing the volume when you listen to music and then even changing and manipulate your music files. And healtcare stops prescroption for sleeping pills during this sound torture and they stop prescription for sleeping pills during treatment for depression and then they don´t have any new times to other doctors for 9 weeks. And when you bying healthcare products from pharmacy to sleep better they first give you a transparent bag (used for when return medications you no longer need) and when you buy these products the alarm starts when you leaving the pharmacy.

Everyone is used for create sleep deprivation; screaming children, neighbors dropping things on floor, late cars honking hornes, helicopters, pharmacies starts alarms when bying health products against sleep problems (interference psychology), sound torture sirens and looping music chorus (swedish police). There is some form of Matrix or Spirit that´s govern all these people like a machine. And this is psychological warfare againts your sleep and then there is everything else and tons of other strategy at days to handle and coping every day.

All together this is a furiously violence and aggressive behavior against you.

Sleep is even more important than food because it is the most basic need humans have.

What food is for the human body, sleep has same meaning for the mental health and psychological (cognitive functions) and this society make people sick. That´s the meaning and purpose to try institionalized them with sound torture, so they lose reality control and get disoriented and confused.

Sound Torture

The most common way of confusing someone is simply to overload them. Just keep giving them things until they crack.

Dissuasion

Dissuasion may occur accidentally or deliberately. Accidental dissuasion occurs, when the person reads, hears or sees something that is not targeted directly at them, but causes them to think the wrong thoughts.

Operant conditioning chamber – Orwell torture chamber – room 101

An operant conditioning chamber (also known as the Skinner box) is a laboratory apparatus

This is today´s world in State of Sweden and they even stalking you at nights when you visiting bathroom. And in Sweden they walking around your apartment bangning, smashing, screaming, using power tools, machines, motor saws, honking hornes, firecrackers, revving engines, motorcycles, lawn movers, snow blowers, music, loud speaking, drum beats, sirens, looping sounds and music chorus, unpleasant distortion sound in every tv broadcasting, helicopters, aircraft jet flyes

This is all Orwell means by thought crime. Winston’s most explicit example of thought crime is not to be found in his realization that history is being manipulated by the inner party; instead, his true and most important thought crime is that he thinks he can think independently of Big Brother. He has managed to develop a sense of himself as an independent, self-determining, self-reflecting being—the sort of autonomous agent so valorized in much liberal thinking.

a part of a larger and eternal whole. Persons die; the party lives forever. Personal significance is possible only once the individual links himself to the party and admits that it is the party that is eternal. It is the party, not the solitary individual, that is the locus of power. The individual, properly understood, is but a cell belonging to a larger and greater organism, and in this case, the organism is the party. O’Brien verbalizes all this, to be sure, but he goes one step further. He illustrates it by means of Winston’s physical torture. The parallels between Nineteen Eighty-Four and Don Quixote, on this score, are provocative. Quixote, of course, is as foolish a character as he is noble. He adopts a moral code and assumes a persona that simply has no place in his world, but his dedication to chivalry remains inspiring nonetheless. Yet his behavior is regarded by those around him quite simply as a form of madness that calls for a cure, and he meets his match in the Knight of Mirrors. When he sees himself as he really is—a silly old fool wearing a shaving basin on his head—he is shocked out of his dementia. His glorious dream is punctured by the stark reality of his physical appearance. O’Brien, of course, acts the part of Winston’s Knight of Mirrors. After the physical erosion of Winston is complete, he has Winston “stand between the wings of the mirror:’ The sight is appalling, and Orwell tells us that Winston would have thought the sight was of “a man of sixty, suffering

But in O’Brien’s Oceania, this “noble and beautiful object of contempla-tion” has become little more than a self-obsessed lunatic. The individual standing alone, O’Brien argues, is hardly noble or beautiful; instead, the individual is just a dependent and pathetic moment in a larger historical drama. The individual takes on significance only when he sees himself as a part of a larger and eternal whole. Persons die; the party lives forever. Personal significance is possible only once the individual links himself to the party and admits that it is the party that is eternal. It is the party, not the solitary individual, that is the locus of power.

from some malignant disease:’ O’Brien sums the image up for Winston rather well, “You are rotting away; he said; “you are falling to pieces. What are you? A bag of filth” (Orwell, 1961: 224). Winston can hardly deny the decay and destruction of his body, and O’Brien assures him that his mind is in a similar state of erosion. “I do not think; O’Brien concludes, “there can be much pride left in you” (Ibid.: 225). The degraded creature Winston saw in the mirror hardly resembled a “noble and beautiful object of contemplation; Like Quixote before him, he is crushed by the sight in the mirror. It is not, however, a silly old fool he sees in the mirror, but a pathetic and insignificant decaying animal. O’Brien robs Winston of his dignity by exposing his mortality to him and illustrating the ease with which Big Brother can reduce an alleged “noble and beautiful object of contemplation” to a bag of filth. By locating nobility in the independent individual, liberal sentimentality has simply made something of a category mistake. It has ascribed great value to a highly dependent and vulnerable creature.”Alone—free—the individual is always defeated; O’Brien tells Winston.

“It must be so,because every human being is doomed to die, which is the greatest of all failures. But if he can make complete, utter submission; if he can escape from his identity, if he can merge himself in the Party so that he is the Party, then he is all-powerful and immortal (Ibid.: 218, Orwell’s italics). So, it is not just the individual, but individualism that the party eradicates. Inner party memhers achieve immortality by sublimating themselves to the collective, and anyone who fails to notice the immortality of the collective—who persists in valuing the part over the whole—suffers from an arrogant dementia. This is the lesson Winston must learn to affect his cure, and torture is a necessary component of the lesson. But O’Brien still tortures because he can he tortures because he is one with the party and therefore all-powerful and immortal. He cures Winston of his dementia because he can, because the point of power lies in exercising it. But the cure—the complete and devastating exercise of power for its own sake—is hardly complete with Winston’s physical destruction. Emphasizing the frailty and dependence of the body is only a small step in the reconstruction of the mind. It establishes only Winston’s physical dependency and the fragility of his existence.

Double-speaking and doubel-thinking

Double-speaking and Orwells doublethinking exist in Sweden to keep masses in a state that allows complete total manipulation to keep them conditiond in the matrix or a reality tunnel of the reailty

Targeted individuals living in a world of daiky mind-games and targeted individuals living with in a psychological warfare and spiritual warfare enviroment.

These people don´t mostly attack you physical, but with noise harassment and sound torture and psychological mind games and enviroment manipulation and gaslighting.

 

The GOAL is to isolate the target from all forms of support, so that the target can be set up in the future for arrest, institutionalization, or forced suicide.

 Other goals of this harassment include sensitize the target to every day stimulus as a form of control. 

These people also want to make the targets of this harassment vulnerable, they want to make them destitute.

The SECONDARY GOALS seem to be to make the target homeless, jobless, give them a breakdown, and the primary goals  seem to be to drive the target to forced suicide.

The stalkers wish to drive the target insane & to get him forcibly taken to (and incarcerated in) a psychiatric institution.

They wish to make the target became violent by provoking, so that he can be violently assaulted, arrested, and taken to jail. 

They wish to make the target suffer so much that he kills himself. 

They wish to make the target become poor by making him lose his job and spend his money moving from place to place trying to escape from the stalkers. 

They wish to completely isolate the target, so he can have no support from anywhere or anyone. 

Overall they wish to destroy the target emotionally, 
financially, socially, and physically.

Most targets, if not all, are stalked, harassed, assaulted until their deaths.

State of Sweden using Zersetzung

This going on today with today´s political system in State of Sweden

Zersetzung (variously translated as decomposition, corrosion, undermining, biodegradation or dissolution) is a psychological warfare technique.

That was first used as part of the accusation against political opponents (which typically resulted in death penalties).

The practice of repression in Zersetzung comprised extensive and secret methods of control and psychological manipulation, including personal relationships

Definition

“…a method of operation by the Ministry for State Security for an efficacious struggle against subversive activities, particularly in the treatment of operations. With Zersetzung one can influence hostile and negative individuals across different operational political activities, especially the hostile and negative aspects of their dispositions and beliefs, so these are abandoned and changed little by little, and, if applicable, the contradictions and differences between the hostile and negative forces would be laid open, exploited, and reinforced.

The goal of Zersetzung is the fragmentation, paralysis, disorganization, and isolation of the hostile and negative forces, in order to preventatively impede the hostile and negative activities, to largely restrict, or to totally avert them, and if applicable to prepare the ground for a political and ideological reestablishment.

Zersetzung is equally an immediate constitutive element of “operational procedures” and other preventive activities to impede hostile gatherings. The principal forces to execute Zersetzung are the unofficial collaborators. Zersetzung presupposes information and significant proof of hostile activities planned, prepared, and accomplished as well as anchor points corresponding to measures of Zersetzung.

Zersetzung must be produced on the basis of a root cause analysis of the facts and the exact definition of a concrete goal. Zersetzung must be executed in a uniform and supervised manner; its results must be documented.

The political explosive force of Zersetzung heightens demands regarding the maintenance of secrecy.

In practice

  • To political opponents in an effort to undermine their self-confidence and self-esteem.
  • Operations were designed to intimidate and destabilise them by subjecting them to repeated disappointment
  • And to socially alienate them by interfering with and disrupting their relationships with others as in social undermining.
  • The aim was to induce personal crises in victims, leaving them too unnerved and psychologically distressed to have the time and energy for anti-government activism

These actions are  “psychosocial crimes”, and “an assault on the human soul”.

The proven forms of Zersetzung are described in the directive 1/76:

“a systematic degradation of reputation, image, and prestige in a database on one part true, verifiable and degrading, and on the other part false, plausible, irrefutable, and always degrading; a systematic organization of social and professional failures for demolishing the self-confidence of the individual; […] stimulation of doubts with respect to perspectives on the future; stimulation of mistrust or mutual suspicion among groups […]; putting in place spatial and temporal obstacles rendering impossible or at least difficult the reciprocal relations of a group […], for example by […] assigning distant workplaces. —Directive No. 1/76 of January 1976 for the development of “operational procedures”

 

This method which was really diabolic. It was called Zersetzung, and it’s described in another guideline. The word is difficult to translate because it means originally “biodegradation.” But actually, it’s a quite accurate description. The goal was to destroy secretly the self-confidence of people, for example by damaging their reputation, by organizing failures in their work, and by destroying their personal relationships. ……. It preferred to paralyze them, and it could do so because it had access to so much personal information and to so many institutions.

They…… manipulated relations of friendship, love, marriage, and family by anonymous letters, telegrams and telephone calls as well as compromising photos, often altered. In this manner, parents and children were supposed to systematically become strangers to one another. To provoke conflicts and extramarital relations they put in place targeted seductions by Romeo agents.

Methods

Tactics employed under Zersetzung generally involved the disruption of the victim’s private or family life. This often included psychological attacks, such as breaking into homes and subtly manipulating the contents, in a form of gaslighting – moving furniture, altering the timing of an alarm, removing pictures from walls or replacing one variety of tea with another. Other practices included property damage, sabotage of cars, purposely incorrect medical treatment, smear campaigns including sending falsified compromising photos or documents to the victim’s family, denunciation, provocation, psychological warfare, psychological subversion, wiretapping, bugging, mysterious phone calls or unnecessary deliveries

Silent treatment

The silent treatment is sometimes used as a control mechanism. When so used, it constitutes a passive-aggressive action characterized by the coupling of nonverbal but nonetheless unambiguous indications of the presence of negative emotion with the refusal to discuss the scenario triggering those emotions and, when those emotions’ source is unclear to the other party, occasionally the refusal to clarify it or even to identify that source at all. As a result, the perpetrator of the silent treatment denies the victim both the opportunity to negotiate an after-the-fact settlement of the grievance in question and the ability to modify his/her future behavior to avoid giving further offense. In especially severe cases, even if the victim gives in and accedes to the perpetrator’s initial demands, the perpetrator may continue the silent treatment so as to deny the victim feedback indicating that those demands have been satisfied. The silent treatment thereby enables its perpetrator to cause hurt, obtain ongoing attention in the form of repeated attempts by the victim to restore dialogue, maintain a position of power through creating uncertainty over how long the verbal silence and associated impossibility of resolution will last, and derive the satisfaction that the perpetrator associates with each of these consequences.

Abusive power and control

Abusive power and control (also controlling behaviour, coercive control and sharp power) is the way that an abusive person gains and maintains power and control over another person, as a victim, in order to subject that person to psychological, physical, sexual, or financial abuse. The motivations of the abusive person are varied, such as personal gain, personal gratification, psychological projection, devaluation, envy or just for the sake of it as the abuser may simply enjoy exercising power and control.

Controlling abusers use tactics to exert power and control over their victims. The tactics themselves are psychologically and sometimes physically abusive. Control may be helped through economic abuse thus limiting the victim’s actions as they may then lack the necessary resources to resist the abuse. The goal of the abuser is to control and intimidate the victim or to influence them to feel that they do not have an equal voice in the relationship.

Manipulators and abusers control their victims with a range of tactics, including positive reinforcement (such as praise, flattery, ingratiation, love bombing, smiling, gifts, attention), negative reinforcement, intermittent or partial reinforcement, psychological punishment (such as nagging, silent treatment, swearing, threats, intimidation, emotional blackmail, guilt trips, inattention) and traumatic tactics (such as verbal abuse or explosive anger).[3]

The vulnerabilities of the victim are exploited with those who are particularly vulnerable being most often selected as targets. Traumatic bonding can occur between the abuser and victim as the result of ongoing cycles of abuse in which the intermittent reinforcement of reward and punishment creates powerful emotional bonds that are resistant to change and a climate of fear. An attempt may be made to normalise, legitimise, rationalise, deny, or minimise the abusive behaviour, or blame the victim for it.

Isolation, gaslighting, mind games, lying, disinformation, propaganda, destabilisation and divide and rule are other strategies that are often used. The victim may be plied with alcohol or drugs to help disorientate them.

Intimidation

Abused individuals may be intimidated by the brandishing of weapons, destruction of their property or other things, or use of gestures or looks to create fear.

Economic abuse

An effective means of ensuring control and power over another is to control their access to money. One method is to prevent the abusee from getting or retaining a job. Controlling their access to money.

Emotional abuse

Emotional abuse include name-calling, playing mind games, putting the victim down, or humiliating the individual. The goals are to make the person feel bad about themselves, feel guilty or think that they are crazy.

Isolation

Another element of psychological control is the isolation of the victim from the outside world.[33] Isolation includes controlling a person’s social activity: who they see, who they talk to, where they go, and any other method to limit their access to others. It may also include limiting what material is read.[36] It can include insisting on knowing where they are and requiring permission for medical care.

Destabilisation

In a psychological context it is used as a technique in brainwashing and abuse to disorient and disarm the victim.

Gaslighting

Gaslighting is a form of manipulation that seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or in members of a targeted group, hoping to make them 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. 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.

Brainwashing

Brainwashing (also known as mind control, menticide, coercive persuasion, thought control, thought reform, and re-education) is the concept that the human mind can be altered or controlled by certain psychological techniques. Brainwashing is said to reduce its subject’s ability to think critically or independently.
