Lest We Forget

The degree of gaslighting, of insisting one doubt one’s own eye, is now beyond parody. Example: the enemy is now insisting that they never called for curtailing or abolishing police funding. Oceania is at war with Eastasia. Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia.

My comment: I can think of no natural explanation within human psychiatry for this behavior.

The best explanation is to posit that the evildoers called on a lying spirit from hell, hoping to deceive, but were enslaved by the spirit, and robbed of their ability to tell true from false. It is akin to how the curse on the Tower of Babel confounded the tongues of men.
