In the field of psychology, cognitive dissonance is the mental discomfort(psychological stress) experienced by a person who simultaneously holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values. The occurrence of cognitive dissonance is a consequence of a person’s performing an action that contradicts personal beliefs, ideals, and values; and also occurs when confronted with new information that contradicts said beliefs, ideals, and values

 

… Each day that passes since 7 November 2016 bears increasing witness to a prolong cognitive dissonance affect afflicting America and its citizens.

One of the more pervasive, is the declaration, commanded by Trump substituting “alternative fact” for “truth” (or truth as declared for the moment by Trump).

In Trump land it matters not what your eyes see, your nose smells, your finger touch, or your heart feels, you need and shall only accept what is in this moment declared by Trump…true…therefore declared real.

That, what one moment later, this truth, is jettisoned by Trump, is to be seen as irrelevant as a new “truth” has been established.

In Trump land what is decreed “true” changes at light speed leaving Americans dizzy, feeling pushed, pulled, go left, go right, run, walk go back, stop.

Living a life on this merry-go-round is incredibly debilitating, affecting each individual just a bit differently, and at the same time all the same.

The “tweets” often announcing the new “truth” come at all hours of the day and night leaving us in a constants state of confusion…by design.

So “slippery” are these new “truths” delivered and with such frequency it is often impossible to recall what the former “truth” was proclaimed to be.

But you need understand, Trump has absolute expectation, you are in this moment, fully aware of what he has precisely declared “true.”   Failure to be able to regurgitate accurately and completely the Trump “truths” is NOT an option.

Failure on this level is declared by Trump as disloyalty, and he will suffer no disloyalty.
