Doctor Feelgood to ER, Stat

Imagine this... you peel the hide off of a rotting corpse. As you expose the interior, you find that the flesh underneath is rotten. Continuing to peel back that rotting flesh, you uncover a series of organs and, Lo!, and Behold! THEY ARE ROTTING, TOO!

Unfortunately, we are still only scratching the surface. I think the tipping point is long past.

Newsweek, in particular, seems afflicted by

MPD, now known in diagnostic terminology as Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), has a fascination as well as a mystery about it. For example, it’s possible to recognize each different personality, or “alter,” from just a few words—in the same way that it’s possible to recognize instantly the voice of a person calling on the telephone. On the other hand, no one can understand the process by which the human brain can create and hold separate and distinct each different personality.

Newsweek and the balance of the Old Media (mostly) also seem to have fallen into Schizophrenia:

What is schizophrenia?

Schizophrenia is a brain disorder that affects almost 2.2 million American adults (approximately 1 out of every 100). If you or someone you love has schizophrenia, treatment can help.

People with schizophrenia often have trouble thinking clearly or making decisions. They may have a hard time telling real life from fantasy. They may also find it a challenge to deal with other people. These can all be symptoms of schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia generally consists of the following kinds of symptoms.

Positive symptoms:
Such as delusions or hallucinations—which are also known as seeing or believing things that are not real. (These are called “positive” symptoms because they are there but shouldn’t be.)

Negative symptoms: Such as social avoidance, emotional withdrawal—which are also known as a lack of feeling, or expression. Starting to do things, but not following through. Taking no pleasure or interest in life. (These are called “negative” symptoms because they refer to things that are missing.)

Disorganized symptoms: Confused in thinking and speech. Acting in ways that do not make sense.

The above are the most common symptoms of schizophrenia, but they can also happen at the same time as the following symptoms: not being able to focus, unable to solve simple problems, being sad, or not being able to remember things.

Now, I am not qualified to make a diagnosis like this, but when it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck...

(HT to Instapundit for the pointer)

Update: As I read this after posting, I realized that I was making excuses for this type of behavior as if it were not the fault of the entities involved, that it could be diagnosed and treated. I failed to mention that there is another possible explanation. It is possible that some entities are knowingly and actively engaged in activities specifically designed to subvert the United States.
