A response to ‘Therapists report widespread cases of ‘Trump anxiety disorder’ By Rick Moran
What the ‘therapists’ are not saying is that the source of the ‘anxiety’ is psychosis.
From Wikipedia: Psychosis is an abnormal condition of the mind that results in difficulties telling what is real and what is not. Symptoms may include false beliefs and seeing or hearing things that others do not see or hear. Other symptoms may include incoherent speech and behavior that is inappropriate for the situation. There may also be sleep problems, social withdrawal, lack of motivation, and difficulties carrying out daily activities.
This kind of mass psychosis is the direct result of a US-media-led propaganda campaign. At this point, as much as 60% of the US public is experiencing some level of psychosis.
There are two phases of any propaganda campaign: Agitation and Consolidation.
The Agitation Phase is focused on defining and highlighting ‘the problem’. In this case, ‘the problem’ is the election of President Trump.
The Consolidation Phase is focused on defining ‘the solution’ and the actions required to implement ‘the solution’. In this case, ‘the solution’ is the removal of President Trump.
Unfortunately, the Consolidation Phase has failed to propose an effective ‘solution’: POTUS DJT is still in office, his approval rating is relatively high (compared to other national figures like Congress and the media) and POTUS is not going anywhere.
This has led to a near-perpetual Agitation Phase that has no available resolution.
In a Pavlovian sense, the ‘reflex arc’ is unable to complete ‘the circuit’ leading to intense frustration.
Using the frustration/aggression/displacement model, media figures have attempted to displace the aggression resulting from the frustration (resulting from being unable to ‘Dump Trump’) onto Trump Supporters as a whole.
The result has been outbreaks of domestic terrorism across ‘blue state’ America.
Using a biological model, the limbic (emotional) and adrenal (fight/flight) systems of propagandized individuals have entered into a feedback loop. The fear induced by media messages (including social media) is stimulating the fight/flight reflex which explains the extreme aggression of those propagandized.
One of the features of psychosis is the strong reaction to any challenge to the psychotic narrative.
Expect more and more varied violence in the coming days.
