The denuclearization agreement with North Korea turns out to be nonsense, the agreement with Russia is first undisclosed and then denied,and in the interludes between disclosures of intemperate and base sexual behavior,we are treated to MOM’s tariff and treaty expertise.We are told that his impeachment will cause national economic disaster and bring violence to the streets.In fact a Democratic party surge in the midterm elections will also bring codified violence to the streets.MS 13 will rain havoc in our towns and cities.The DSM 3 terminology “little room to manuever except into psychosis” ominously comes to mind.The wretched treatment of John Mcain’s death was an indicator of the smallness of our POTUS.
MOM cannot engage in complex thought; . his thinking is” go or no go”.His deal making involves only two parties,winner and loser.He cannot understand that destroying our participation in international agreements forces us to compete with economic blocs (Trans Pacific Association,European Union,NAFTA) and that tariffs and export taxes will inevitably bring the booming economy to a screeching halt. Binary thinking is an essential component of teleologic thinking,.( we have arms so that fingers can get closer to what they must grasp,)teleologic thinking is most of the way to a magical belief in omnipotence of thought and action.”Little room to manuever except into psychosis”. in the meantime advisors are having no impact,petulance and Horney’s “urge to vindictive triumph” rule the day.Thanks Eli,Susanna, Herb et al, for raising the issue of teleologic thinking!
As long as we continue to focus on goods and toys and one upping our neighbors we can not pay sufficient attention to our increasing division and the rising violence among us.
