Cover Up

« Back to Glossary Index

What is a Cover-Up? A very deliberate Machiavellian act made by a Hospitality Abuser by freewill choice or under threat of transactional duress.

Wikipedia says, “A cover-up is an attempt, whether successful or not, to conceal evidence of wrongdoing, error, incompetence, or other embarrassing information.

They go on to say, “The expression is usually applied to people in positions of authority who abuse power to avoid or silence criticism or to deflect guilt of wrongdoing.”

The key is understanding that covering up reality involves a Cluster B person or narcissistic and likely anti-social or transactional thinker believing if they hide the truth from a target or from the general public that they can reap social benefit while avoiding any lack of reward or social form of punishment if what they are hiding or covering up is something they did wrong, whether they meant to cause or to be involved in the original issue being hidden.

A toxic parent covers up the crimes and lies or gaslighting of a child or of their mate.

A toxic child pretends they did not do that very thing someone like a parent or other authority figure is asking if they did when the person asking the question was either not there, not paying attention, or when some kind of crime or social accident has happened that has come to their attention.

By blame-shifting or avoiding taking personal responsibility for in private or for caustic or neglectful types of behavior, predators think they trick God and universe into believing that whatever they claim to be true actually is or was.

In a moral pro-social society, such socially competitive and transactional trickery is frowned upon by individuals who are not Cluster B. Hence, people involved with enabling crime of any social or legal form are typically regarded as weak-willed and ultimately sycophantic people not well regarded as anything other than for their predictable life habit of acting fickle.

A Cover-Up involves a formulating a device plan or stratagem for masking or concealing things like social abuse or abuse of power from the general public and or from individuals the social predator chooses to make into a Gaslighting victim.

Anyone who tries to hide, to minimize, or to cover up Narcissistic Abuse for themselves or for another is a socially violent person who reveals their own core nature as a social being in relation to their concept of “Other”.

They also reveal in their actions things like conspiracies in racketeering, their own awareness of guilt or that someone was harmed, and that they care more about what they get from hiding or concealing abuse or malfeasance than they do about things like moral law, ethics, or actual justice.
