Trump’s Method, Our Madness


From The New York Times: The effects of Donald Trump’s presidency on the American public resemble a psychotic-like state, inducing disorientation, anxiety, and distrust of one’s reality.

“Of course, a clinical psychoanalytic experience and general social experience are not strictly analogous. But a comparison of them can prove illuminating. Just as disorientation and bewilderment tell analysts something significant about what they are experiencing in the clinical setting, so too our confusion and anxiety in the face of Trumpism can tell us something important about ours. I am suggesting, in other words, that Trumpism as a social experience can be understood as a psychotic-like phenomenon.”
