mobi ☆ Twilight of American Sanity ´ Allen Frances

A landmark book from “one of the world’s most prominent psychiatrists” The Atlantic June 2017 Eminent psychiatrist Allen Frances analyzes the national psyche viewing the rise of Donald J Trump as darkly symptomatic of a deeper societal distress Eually challenging and profound Twlilight of American Sanity makes sense of our time and charts the way forwardIt is comforting to see President Donald Trump as a crazy man a one off an exception not a reflection on us or our democracy But in ways I never anticipated his rise was absolutely predictable and a mirror on our soul What does it say about us that we elected someone so manifestly unfit and unprepared to determine mankind’s future? Trump is a symptom of a world in distress not When it comes to finding commonsense solutions to concrete problems we the people are better wiser and united than the politicians who represent us The platforms of the political parties are drawn up to satisfy the entrenched self interests of their most rabid members and therefore emphasize differences rather than commonalitiesAllen Frances is not only philosophical and analytical he's fantastic This is pull no punches straight talk that won't sit well with far right pseudo religious extremists Dr Frances lays out the schematics of how we got to here and offers both dystopian and utopian views of where we're headed next I have yet to encounter anyone who so closely parallels my own opinions and perspectives This is a thoughtful dissertation on what should be blatantly obvious; the emperor has no clothes
