HYPERREALITY OF AMERICA.


HYPERREALITY OF AMERICA.
Boris Gulko
Remarkable psychologist Sabina Spielrein (so many great ones tried to plagiarize her ideas!) discovered a destructive phenomenon in the human psyche: the desire for death, called "thanatos" (Greeks called the demon of death by this name). Sigmund Freud, who included "thanatos" in his theory of the unconscious, explained: "... the goal of all life is death." The resolution of tension in inanimate matter before the appearance of life in it "tends to balance: namely ... it desires to return to the inanimate."

Karl Menninger [H1] examined many forms of self-destructive behavior of a person, and in each of them he saw the existence of an attraction to death. The same phenomenon - the desire for death - is inherent in other organisms - cultures, societies, peoples, civilizations. Founder of the French sociological school Emil Durkheim [H2] said: "Every society at a certain historical moment has a certain propensity to commit suicide."

Jean Baudrillard explained the mechanism of the society's desire for death, describing the phenomenon inherent in society, which he called "hyper-real". In a hyper-reality, a sense of reality is lost. Hyper-reality is determined by its products,  according to Baudrillard, called "simulacra," something that doesn’t exist in objective reality, but simulates it. Hyper-reality acts on a real reality in a destructive way and seeks to replace it. Baudrillard  believed that the current flow of information destroys reality, enveloping it with the huge amount of simulacra created by it, which forms the hyper-real reality that replaces the real reality. The process of substituting reality with hyper-reality determines the progress of society towards death.

Contemporary Western society, the moved by thanatos, follows its great predecessors: the ancient Athens and Rome. The mechanisms of their dying were, consequently: 1) the adoption of homosexuality as the norm; 2) the collapse of the family institution; 3) demographic degeneration; 4) the invasion of their countries by strangers. The Greek geographer and historian Strabo described Greece at the turn of the past and new era: "The earth is completely abandoned ... Roman soldiers occupy abandoned houses; Athens is inhabited by statues.”

Rome went through all the stages of the Greeks several centuries later. In view of the depopulation, foreign mercenaries began to be recruited into the Roman army. In the year of 376 Emperor Valens allowed, for humanitarian reasons, the Visigoths to cross the Danube and settle on the territory of the empire. In return, the aliens promised to serve in Valens’ army.  34 years later, on August 24, 410, Visigoths, led by Alaric, captured[H3]  and plundered Rome.

Western countries now are in the fourth and final stage of the described process of dying - the settling of their lands by outsiders with an ideology different from aborigines. The United States lags somewhat behind the West European countries with respect to demographic degeneration. So in 2014, the last, which published data, in the US accounted for 1.86 children per woman. This is already significantly lower than the level of population reproduction, but still much higher than in Europe.
The United States was the creation of immigrant Protestants. The ideology of the new society was "American Zionism", it is Americanism based on the teachings of the TANAKH[H4] . The civilization, created on this basis, became known in recent decades as a Judeo-Christian one.
The hyperrealism that destroys the reality of Americanism is now made up of numerous simulacra of leftist ideologies: socialism, multiculturalism, political correctness, feminism, black racism, "equality of marriages", anti-Zionism, "anti-Islamophobia", and others. Today these simulacra already dominate in American culture, in the media, in universities and colleges.

There is, as in ancient Rome, the active settlement of the United States by the carriers of ideas different from Americanism, largely illegal. Barack Hussein Obama, the hater of Americanism, has been a president for 8 years already. Semi-Kenyan, who, by his mother’s will,  received Islamic upbringing in Indonesia,  (in his school there was also a branch for Christians), a socialist, he proclaimed that the United States is no longer a Christian country, but one of the world's largest Muslim one.

In November 2016, Americanism unexpectedly received a chance to survive. Its adept Donald Trump was elected to be a President. Trump can be considered the first Jewish president of the United States. By the most appropriate definition in today's America: a Jew is a person whose grandchildren are Jews. According to this definition, Trump, unlike the overwhelming majority of non-religious Americans born by Jewish women is a Jews. This consideration is important, since Jews among mortals represent eternal people.

Americans wanted to become a new version of the TANAKH people and were claiming the position of "almost-chosen people," as Lincoln called them. And the president-Jew, with his motto to return to America its former greatness, symbolizes the renewal of this claim.

The creators of the American hyper-reality - the tornado of the tanatos elite (in today's US they are media workers, entertainers, including actors), supplying simulacra, bring down the waves of hatred towards the president. After all, Trump intends to stop the dying of Americanism that was speeding up during Obama's presidency. Celebrities lost their minds with rage. Actors like De Niro and Madonna, poured out their emotions about the President with foul tirades. Madonna also urged to blow up the White House.

The president is especially hated by the bulk of American journalists - malicious, ignorant, but extremely progressive (this is a global simulacrum of American hyper-reality) to the masses. His manner of responding to them via Twitter endlessly upsets the employees of the camera and the keyboard. This destroys the numerous media created by the simulacra. "Trump must stop sending tweets" - the journalistic brethren complain in different voices.

Perhaps a large and noisy crowd of simulacra creators, both progressive and neoconservatives, which constitute a non-irreproachable from the psychiatric point of view community that calls itself "Anyone but Trump," would have succeeded in harassing the president. But Trump is supernaturally, almost inexplicably lucky. Barely breathing all eight years of Obama's presidency,  American economy suddenly blossomed. The highest employment in the history among African Americans and Latinos has been recorded. Now the US economy has more vacancies than job seekers. Success also accompanies Trump in foreign policy.

Entertainer Bill Maher, born by a Jewish woman, dreamed on his popular HBO program: "I wish we had a heavy recession. That would help to overthrow Trump.  Democracy is more important than economic well-being." "Democracy" for Maher and other progressives is also a simulacrum. It means their dictatorship.

The most pressing task to save American civilization facing Trump is to stop illegal emigration through the Mexican border. But for workers of hyper-reality, striving for the death of Americanism, such emigration is also extremely important. It would give an opportunity to turn the USA into a kind of Mexico, Honduras or Somalia. Therefore, the latest cacophony of progressives in politics and in the media about the illegal immigrants detained on the Mexican border exceeded in intensity all of their past hysterics. The reason for this was the separation of children from their illegal parents.

Simulacra spawned like bubbles in boiling water. In the course went photos taken during Obama’s reign. The law of containing children was adopted long time ago,  and nobody was worried about it then. CNN said that Trump following on the law protecting the border was like Holocaust, the “Washington Post” wrote that it is tantamount to slavery, on MSNBC and CNBC it was likened to racism. And the editor of the left site “Daily Beast” for some reason accused Trump of poor conditions in detention centers during the years of Obama's presidency.

In order to influence the child-loving audience even more, the media distributed a photo of the weeping two-year-old Janela from Honduras. Time Magazine posted a photo of the girl, along with Trump, on the cover. Then, however, it turned out that no one separated the girl from her mother Sandra. Moreover, it turned out that Sandra is a multiple violator of emigrant laws. And,  she snatched her little girl away without her father's his consent -- another typical simulacra.

After letting the passions and simulacrum to boil, Trump issued a presidential decree to unite parents with children. I'm not sure that children, and this is mostly teenagers, will be better in confinement with adults. But it's already embarrassing to fighters of hyper-reality to raise hysteria against the unification of families now.

To show concern for the detained children, Trump sent to visit them The First Lady Melania. Here the media managed to give birth to only one simulacrum - something about the Melania’s jacket.

The results of creating hyper-reality elite, depressed by it’s obsession with tanatos, regarding the problem of illegal emigration,  are ambiguous. A poll conducted on June 17-19 by the Economist / YouGov jointly showed that two-thirds of the 1,500 respondents support the detention of those who illegally cross the border, but only 20% would prefer to continue Obama's policies regarding them. Most Americans - among the Republicans this is 74%, consider it correct to treat illegal immigrants as criminals. 80% of the Republicans support the construction of the wall along the border with Mexico, and 62% support the deportation of all illegal immigrants from the country.

The struggle for and against the relocation of millions of carriers of other civilizations in the United States will continue. Elites of the United States are intoxicated with the desire for the death of their civilization,  and are ready to do anything to satisfy their thanatos. But now there was a hope that these elites will gradually melt, and Americanism will continue. During the 8 years of Trump's rule, if he has the strength and determination to continue the same policy as now, and success will accompany him, new elite will be born. Citizens who elected Trump support their President.

Hard times are coming.
