Saltuariamente, ed in modo impredicibile, Bloomberg pubblica un lavoro onesto. Non si riesce a capire come possa aver passato la censura interna, solitamente di efficienza pari a quella del Kgb di infausta memoria.
Cogliamo quindi al volo l’occasione di riportarlo e commentarlo.
Per rendere più comprensibile il testo, proponiamo una premessa che sembrerebbe essere indispensabile.
La World Health Organization ha rilasciato il seguente Report “Mental Health”.
Mental health and mental disorders are one of the most significant public health challenges in the WHO European Region. Reduced opportunities to find employment, lack of control over one’s life and poor social relations affect people’s well-being.
About a quarter to a third of the population suffer from mental disorders every year, depending on what disorders are included (most commonly depression and anxiety). Only about 50% of people suffering from mental disorders receive professional help; far fewer receive adequate help. Mental disorders are more prevalent among the most deprived people. Their effects are magnified by the poor being the population group in which most risk factors cluster (tobacco and alcohol use, poor diet, obesity, physical inactivity, etc.) and with least access to good services. In addition, mental disorders affect men and women differently: depression is twice as common in women, while more men commit suicide. ….
– Mental disorders account for 44% of social welfare benefits and disability pensions ….
– Almost 9 out of 10 of people suffering from mental health problems say they have been affected by stigma and discrimination, and more than 7 out of 10 report that stigma and discrimination stopped them from doing things»
Queste statistiche sono approssimate per difetto, riferendosi alla casistica segnalata dal personale sanitario: molti pazienti cercano di non andare dal medico, sia per motivi sociali sia lavorativi. Secondo le statistiche, nei paesi occidentali circa il 40% della popolazione adulta (15-65) assume cronicamente psicofarmaci maggiori. Le femmine sono affette da patologie psichiatriche due volte i maschi.

I sistemi politici basati sulla democrazia elettiva a suffragio universale, specie se diretto, si basano invariabilmente sul presupposto che gli Elettori siano in grado di intendere e volere, di discernere per lo meno quali siano i propri interessi a quale partito possa tutelarli. In linguaggio più adeguato, si dovrebbe dire che, in accordo al teorema di Gödel, la sanità mentale degli elettori è postulato implicito.
Questi dati smentiscono in modo clamoroso l’assunto di normalità della popolazione.
Se è vero che per la legge dei grandi numeri gli anormali psichicamente dovrebbero distribuirsi in modo equilibrato ed uniforme su tutte le componenti politiche, ciò non avviene nei fatti a causa della peculiarità di tali patologie.
Quando il 90% circa degli psicopatici percepisce la propria vita come discriminata, ostacolata, osteggiata in ogni modo e maniera, vero o presunto, tende in via del tutto sequenziale a militare in formazioni politiche fortemente petitive, massimamente quelle che si reggono sull’assioma che esista un nemico così malvagio e potente che nulla sarà mai sufficientemente perfido pur di eliminarlo. Chiari esempio storici sono l’ideologia nazionalsocialista ed il comunismo: il primo indicava il nemico da sterminare negli Ebrei, il secondo nella classe borghese. Per effetto devolutivo la posizione comunista è transitata pienamente nell’ideologia liberal democratica negli Stati Uniti ed in quella dei socialisti ideologici in Europa.
Tutti i tratti psichiatrici hanno in sé un ché di ridicolo, perché destituiti di razionale logico. Se i pochi normali rimasti cercano di pigliarsela in ridere, gli psichiatrici vanno su tutte le furie a sentirsi derisi, fatto questo che li incancrenisce nella loro situazione patologica.
Fateci caso: non esiste quasi nessuna persona liberal o socialista che abbia un minimo senso dello humor.
Un esempio per tutti. È un fatto vero, che potete controllare in un amen.
Emma Watson fu aspramente criticata dalla Bbc per aver posato lasciando intravedere una mammella. Far vedere una mammella sarebbe stato, a lor dire, un atteggiamento anti-femminista, ossia una terrificante eresia dal loro punto di vista. Il femminismo è un dogma dell’ideologia liberal e socialista.
Peccato però che detta Mrs Emma Watson abbia riempito internet di siti porno, molti dei quali a pagamento, dove il più casto dei reportage la riprende mentre sta masturbandosi freneticamente, fatto questo evidentemente considerato il clou del femminismo. Nessuna paura: é è piota piota. La si può osservare in ogni dettaglio anatomico.
È un’ipocrisia galattica.
Sarebbe da riderci sopra se la gente non pigliasse il femminismo sul serio. Ma lo pigliano sul serio perché psicopatici.

Queste semplici considerazioni di dati di fatto rendono ragione dei comportamenti abnormi ai quali stiamo assistendo in Occidente. In Europa tutte le formazioni politiche che non condividano principi ispiratori ed operato dell’élite dominante sono demonizzate quasi fossero demoni scatenati; negli Stati Uniti un simile processo sta coagulandosi attorno alla figura del Presidente Trump.
Il Presidente Putin ha sintetizzato il tutto in pochissime ma espressive parole:
«At the same time, we see that a political schizophrenia is developing in the Us.»
Il testo dell’articolo allegato usa due volte di seguito, in modo proprio, un termine prima quasi introvabile degli articoli di Bloomberg.
“Trump’s political enemies“: nemici, non avversari politici. Atteggiamento caratteristico delle anomalie psichiche.
→ Bloomberg. 2017-05-21. Russians Are Laughing at the U.S., Not Just at Trump
To many Americans, this is his mess. But to outsiders, it’s about America’s weakness.
President Donald Trump was only half wrong when he tweeted last week that “Russia must be laughing up their sleeves watching as the U.S. tears itself apart.” Russian officials are laughing quite openly.
Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov’s trolling of FBI Director James Comey’s firing was relatively benign; ostensibly, Lavrov’s mock surprise at being told of the firing could be taken for a diplomat’s polite refusal to discuss the host country’s domestic politics.
This week, however, the Russian jokes at the expense of the U.S. got positively unpleasant. First, President Vladimir Putin offered to provide the U.S. Congress with a recording of Lavrov’s conversation with Trump, in which the U.S. president allegedly revealed highly classified information (the word Putin used, zapis, cannot really be translated as “transcript”, as the Kremlin later claimed). The suggestion, of course, was sheer mockery — it’s impossible to imagine the Congress making such a request of Putin, and U.S. legislators tried to answer Putin in kind, Senator Marco Rubio suggesting that if Putin sent the information by email, he “wouldn’t click on the attachment.”
Then, on Thursday, the Russian foreign ministry posted a short clip from Lavrov’s meeting with Thorbjorn Jagland, secretary general of the Council of Europe. As the two sat for photographers, the Norwegian politician quipped, “These pictures won’t cause any problems for you?” To this clear reference to the U.S. uproar following the Russian publication of pictures showing Trump and Lavrov acting friendly, the Russian foreign minister replies: “Depends on what kind of secrets you pass on to me.” There’s general laughter around the table: Clearly, this is the kind of Russian humor that travels well in Europe.
It’s clear why Putin and his underlings are amused. The mess of intersecting investigations, leaks, pained howls and invective from pro-Trump and anti-Trump politicians is, to Putin and Lavrov, something right out of 1990’s Moscow, in which President Boris Yeltsin — a big, clumsy populist not unlike Trump — battled the Soviet “deep state” as his family lined its pockets and tried to influence his decisions. Yeltsin, by the way, was nearly impeached for alleged “crimes” that included the Soviet Union’s breakup.
Putin, of course, is uncomfortable with the messiness of democracy. He has made sure since his rise in 2000 it never resurfaces in Russia. His take this week on what’s happening in the U.S. was especially revealing:
You know what surprises me? They rock the domestic political situation in the U.S. under anti-Russian slogans, and they don’t understand that they’re harming their own country. Then they’re just dumb. Or they understand everything, and then they’re dangerous, dishonest people.
But that doesn’t mean he’s entirely wrong about the effect the scandals are having on the ability of the U.S. to maintain its special place in the world. Headlines in the U.S. media scream that the Trump administration is falling apart; to Americans, this is Trump’s mess. But to outsiders, and not just to Russians, it’s an all-American mess; it’s about America’s weakness.
Klaus-Dieter Frankenberger wrote in a commentary in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung:
Vladimir Putin can only laugh at the political chaos in Washington. One can see why. But damage to democratic institutions and the trivialization of the presidential office is not a laughing matter at all.
The current media circus, which amplifies every Trump misstep and forces him to stumble again and again, is different from a previous global spectacle of similarly epic proportions — President Bill Clinton’s Monica Lewinsky scandal. That one had to do with sexual indiscretions, something the world outside the U.S. doesn’t take as seriously as the American public. The current scandal is about constantly repeated allegations concerning U.S. politicians and officials doing the bidding of foreign powers. Trump’s enemies aren’t accusing him of being unfaithful to his wife — they’re calling him mentally impaired, unfit to govern, easily influenced by foreign masterminds such as Putin. Even though there’s still not a shred of public evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia last year, the constant airing of that accusation makes it look as though U.S. institutions have failed to stop a foreign incursion — and are still failing, because the noise around the investigations greatly exceeds anything they have unearthed. To outsiders, it looks as though people who are supposed to be stewarding the Western world are bickering among themselves instead, trying to create major problems for each other out of thin air.
As Trump prepares for its first foreign trip, that’s not the kind of advance publicity the U.S. — not Trump, but his country — really needs. On a visit to Washington on Thursday, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel made the point gently, in a far friendlier way than Russians have done.
“You are citizens of a real superpower, and if America is too much engaged with its interior problems, there will be a vacuum in the international sphere,” Gabriel said.
A report in The Washington Post offers a range of similar worries under a headline that, perhaps unsurprisingly, blames Trump and not the other powers involved: “European leaders fear Trump’s political chaos is undermining U.S. power“.
The U.S. midterm elections are still 17 months away. It’s too early for the campaign-like heat that’s being generated in Washington. Trump will be around for a while in any case. He needs a breathing space so his visible panic doesn’t damage U.S. interests any more than it has already done. Trump’s political enemies, too, must understand that they are hardly doing the country any favors by harping on yet-unproven but extremely serious accusations. Investigators need some quiet if they are to get anywhere. And the world needs the U.S. as something more reassuring than a soap opera that’s getting increasingly harder for outsiders to follow because of its descent into domestic political and legal trivia. More seriousness, more common sense and less screaming from all quarters is urgently required.
