Pathological Lying as a Political Ideology ~ and for some ~ A Way of Life and Voting

Pathological Lying as a Political Ideology ~ and for some ~ A Way of Life and Voting

Would you ask your children to believe in lies? Or worse, would you teach your children to lie as a way of life? Or, to lie but don’t get caught lying.

How about as a citizen of a Democracy?

Why would you vote for a candidate and party that exists as pathological liars asking their constituencies to believe and promote falsehoods?

Have parents and teachers become the Fourth Estate teaching children not to lie but pursue the truth?

Does credibility, trust and the truth matter in any relationship?

How about between a candidate, political party and citizens?

“Projection” ~ Republican Trumpism’s Psychological     Ploy and Disease ~

“Projection” ~ Republican Trumpism’s Psychological Ploy and Disease ~

Psychological Projection is a defense mechanism when an individual attributes their own unacceptable thoughts, feelings, behavior or motives to another person.
In doing so, they defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses, characteristics, attitudes or qualities denying their existence in themselves and attributing them to others.

Remember those bullies during our early school days causing needless pain projecting their own damaged selves.

Unfortunately, some school bullies become adults – even graduate from elite boarding, independent and Ivy League schools.

Some even become president, senators and members of Congress.
The titles, spaces and times shift, but the psychosis continues.

Autocracy ~ Denying Reality and Truth vs. Democracy’s Inherent Human Force ~ HOPE

Autocracy ~ Denying Reality and Truth vs. Democracy’s Inherent Human Force ~ HOPE

With each birth, HOPE is inherent within the human spirit.

But hope must be nurtured and mentored in the real world and with the truth. We are the teachers – the mentors – the nurturers.

Hope – it gives life during the darkest of times.

No child is born hating and loathing other children in a hospital’s nursery room.

The vileness and extremism of hate and nihilism is taught.

So is the essence of love and hope.

Does Adolf Hitler remind you of anyone? Do you dare to scream the name out loud?

Does Adolf Hitler remind you of anyone? Do you dare to scream the name out loud?

It happens often!
We see and hear an individual that provides us with an image of someone else.
The comparison reveals itself in living color, high definition and surround sound of the 21st Century.
We just can’t help ourselves by making the comparison.
The juxtaposition is inevitable . . . not by way of our own reality . . . but history reminding and warning us.

MAGA Republicans ~ Living in a Delusional Psychosis ~ But don’t count only on history to teach, forewarn and heal

MAGA Republicans ~ Living in a Delusional Psychosis ~ But don’t count only on history to teach, forewarn and heal

Each vote from here on will determine whether we live in an autocratic schizophrenic fantasy world with notions of narcissism, supremacy, denialism, grievances and extremism or . . .

Live in a Democracy with a focus and advocacy to enhance the quality of life of current and future generations.

Trumpism’s Ingrained Predispositions ~ Blind Faith’s Inherited Identity

Trumpism’s Ingrained Predispositions ~ Blind Faith’s Inherited Identity

A would-be autocrat requires absolute blind faith and loyalty.
This is the antithesis of what citizens expect from a Democracy and its leaders.
So why does a segment of America, said to be debatably 18%, believe in the insidious anti-democratic ideology known as Trumpism?
Is it a matter of absolute blind-faith or a matter of an inherited identity based on the legacy of learned predispositions and delusions of superiority, supremacy and extremism?

“When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. People know themselves much better than you do. That’s why it’s important to stop expecting them to be something other than who they are.”

Autocratic Republican Trumpism’s Death Knell on Democracy ~ Check-List Before Voting

Autocratic Republican Trumpism’s Death Knell on Democracy ~ Check-List Before Voting

Autocratic regimes leave ashes behind – a legacy of multigenerational trauma – followed by the sorrowful reality of the needlessness of lives altered and lost – with generations left behind to pick up the pieces.

For what? The result of pathological damaged egos pursuing manic delusions of achieving absolute superiority, power and its control.

American Democracy has never been on auto-pilot and taking it for granted allows for insidious autocratic forces to displace the core principles and quality of life provided living in a Democracy.

So what are the differences between an Autocracy and Democracy?

Do we realize what is at stake – at risk?
Do we have a choice?
Is it just about a candidate, political party, gas prices, the economy and/or contrived social-cultural distractions?

Separátocide ~ Earning the Name

Separátocide ~ Earning the Name

We now have a name for it – Separátocide – The forced separation of children from parent(s) and the caging of children.
The horrific images of traumatized children being separated and imprisoned in cages left many Americans shocked and empty – beyond sorrow.
Citizens began to recognize the politicized fraudulent ideology of the past . . . “solving the immigrant question”.
No, it was not the 1940s but America in the 21st Century.
