|Gene was 13 and his little brother Scott was 6. Scott was annoying but easily led so often and became a target for the other kids including his older brother. A few times Gene would tackle little Scott and hold his wrists and then make Scott hit himself with his own hands. “Why are you hitting yourself? Why are you hitting yourself?”|
This is nothing uncommon. It's been going on since the beginning of time. Kids can be cruel and sometimes prey upon those more vulnerable.
One of the adult versions of this is gas-lighting. Gas-lighting is a non-physical form of personal attack. The attacker uses projection or other psychological weapons on his opponent to make it appear as though the victim is irrational or crazy, when in fact it is the attacker who is the source of grief and hostility.
Definition: "Gaslighting is a form of psychological manipulation that seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or in members of a targeted group, making them question their own memory, perception, and sanity."
Western civilization is devolving. I say this because gaslighting is becoming increasingly common.
If you're the target all I can say is isolate your attacker. If it's your boss, your spouse, or some one you've interacted with on an online forum, do what's needed to re-establish seperation. It's not worth the grief.
