The Schizophrenic/Psychopathic Overlords of America

Vestiges of widespread mental illness abound.

So writes Dr. Brian Moench in “Schizophrenics, Psychopaths Holding America Hostage”. In fact, he prefaces that statement with:

I've been struck by how large portions of the country are mired in schizophrenic distortions of reality and how prominent business leaders and politicians overtly display personality traits common to psychopaths. Vestiges of widespread mental illness abound.

They offer inspiration and a vision
just what that vision is ain't always clear
with analogies and metaphors abundant
