Aha! We have a name for the psychological torture our rulers and mas-Q-raiders are perpetrating.
Munchausen syndrome by proxy (MSBP) is a mental health problem in which a caregiver makes up or causes an illness or injury in a person under his or her care, such as a child, an elderly adult, or a person who has a disability. Because vulnerable people are the victims, MSBP is a form of child abuse or elder abuse.
Political correctness has renamed it – they don’t want it associated with a storyteller.
Originally, this term was used for all factitious disorders. Now, however, in the DSM-5, “Munchausen syndrome” and “Munchausen by proxy” have been replaced with “factitious disorder” and “factitious disorder by proxy” respectively.
Facticious is a great word.No tags for this post.
