-- Deception, manipulation, misinformation and denial, that's all that we have seen in the pandemic. From seeing people dying to have their government with no data of their deaths to not having the absolute solidarity for their grief, people have seen the worst. With increased uncertainties offered by the pandemic and having variant and discrete ideas to having no information about who will address their grievances, political gaslighting in the pandemic has played the role in every manner. And with that being played, who happened to be the ones at loss are the ones who suffered. The ones who were misled. The ones who were on the pedestal of losses.
How has political gaslighting in the pandemic confused reality for people?
What is political gaslighting?
The term political gaslighting means any sort of deception or manipulation which is in an effort to convince a person to doubt their own understanding of reality and truth. In the political environment, the citizens of the country are made to have dubious understandings of what is true and what is false.
Amid the pandemic, there have been several incidents where the government happened to have no data on survivors of the pandemic. There has been an utter denial in government statements acknowledging people suffering in the pandemic. The government has managed to present no data for healthcare workers, no data on migrant workers in the first wave of the pandemic. Source:- https://www.oneworldnews.com/what-is-political-gaslighting/
