Control. The ability to be ice-calm when your life is subject to circumstances illegal and legal which combine to make your life Hell.
The only survival tool is the belief you have in yourself and the knowledge that ‘No person, Corporation, News Media, Government or even Monarch has ever survived the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth’.
This is my answer to this Question on Quora.
No not at all. Speaking your mind in relation to your beliefs and views is not any indication or syndrome of any form of mental incapacity.
When Presidents Trump’s state of mind is compared to say Blair, Bush, Cameron and Obama who invaded Iraq and Libya and then walked away from any form of positive solution to a problem they were part of I would say he is acting perfectly normal.
I could of course compare his state of mind to all the World Leaders who when faced with mankind’s destructive effects to our Climate signed a non-mandatory agreement which favoured certain countres over others to give away $100 billion a year to some of which will go to corrupt governments. We need a ‘no disadvantage enforceable mandatory agreement’ if we are to save our Planet.
Even more so I could compare his state of mind to that of the U.K Government who are about to walk away from the best trading partner the U.K has or will ever have.
Angela Merkel’s state of mind must also be questioned for allowing 1 million refugees into Germany without asking her citizens if they agreed. Merkel also never prepared for those who were prepared to die in the Mediterranean to get to Germany – their watery graves a testament to her inability to understand the effects of her actions.
Or even the state of mind of the U.N Security Council which allowed children in Aleppo to die day after day after day and did nothing.
Speaking your mind is an honesty we all need. He speaks and somebody is able to object and he gets a barometer of what people are thinking. What exactly has he done other than raise debate and cause us all to question the sanity of our own Governments.
