What is belittling? Belittling is the intentional act of making another feel worthless, empty, and dismissed. It is one of many forms of psychological and emotional abuse. Belittling another often creates a personal emptiness and void. It can create a sense of loneliness and despair in the lives of many. It creates the attitude of “Why should I give a dam, nobody else does?” When someone belittles another he/she are often trivializing, minimizing, downgrading, running or playing down the personhood of another. Why does belittling occur? If a parent is the perpetrator of the act of belittling, he/she may feel insecure, doubtful or lacking confidence in his/her own person. Thus, the parent sees the child as an extension of his/her own personhood. In the mind of that insecure parent, he/she perceive that child as a mini-me. As a mini-me you are incapable of going beyond or achieving successes or failures unimaginable or unattainable to the parent.Source
Insecure parents who fail to place normal boundaries between themselves and their children tend to see the child as an extension of themselves. If they try to maintain control of every aspect of the child’s life long past the time when the child should be developing more and more independence, they cripple the unnecessarily helpless child while creating a deep resentment at the same time. This resentment can emerge in many unfortunate ways.
Belittling in National Politics Could Lead to Deadly Retribution
It is becoming clear that the elites who control the media, the universities, big corporations, and now virtually the entire political/legal/governmental apparatus, do not consider the majority of Americans as worthy of humane treatment. The 1% and their lackeys are taking on the role of the gestapo, and the vast majority of the people are increasingly seen as the untermenschen.
“Police, congressmen and women, they don’t care. I mean, they think we’re a joke. $2,000 checks was a joke to them. You know, there’s people filming us, laughing at us as we marched down the street at the Department of Justice. There’s a man in the window laughing at us, filming us. And here it was a joke to them until we got inside and then all of a sudden guns came out. But I mean, we’re at a point now, it can’t be allowed to stand. We have to do something, people have to do something, because this could be you or your kids.”A Tragic Belittling and DeHumanizing
The eternally incompetent and immature psychological neotenates who are taking control of society’s most powerful institutions consider themselves to be the proper judges of which ideas and points of view should be heard, of which groups should be allowed to gather in groups, and of which sort of business should be allowed to function and profit in the marketplace. It is becoming a totalitarian society run by the dictates of mind children who were given power without having demonstrated the maturity to safely wield it.
This whole process of handing over power to the ideologically deranged happened so quickly due to election fraud, which bypassed the will of the majority of the voting public. This arrogation of power and control will, of course, have consequences. And the larger the abuses of dehumanization, the more tragic the consequences will grow.
Emotional abuse is defined as a consistent pattern of abusive words and bullying behaviors that wear down a person’s self-esteem and undermine their mental health. The underlying goal in emotional abuse is to control the victim by discrediting, isolating, and silencing them. Someone who is emotionally abused is more likely to feel trapped in their current relationship, have lower self-esteem and difficulty trusting others, and experience depression, PTSD, and suicidal thoughts. No matter how subtle or overt, emotional abuse has the power to strip a person of their worth.Emotional Abuse
They bully and belittle because they want to control everyone. It is a certain sign of insecurity, an old carry-over from a badly unbalanced childhood. If you want to know how corrupt a person is, give them power over others and see what they do.
They are starting to call it “The Great Purge”
