The Elephant Bush Refuses to See

One thing Weird Wally is very certain of, if you don’t know what you’re looking at, you will never see it. And that is a major problem for people suffering from personality disorders and other kinds of mental illness. Although knee deep in problems caused by their behavior and choices, they still don’t see their problems. Or, at the very least, they don’t see themselves as the cause of their problems. But then again, we’re talking mental illness.

Now as far as WW is concerned, people with disorders and other perceptual problems with the way they see the world, are always going to cause problems for themselves and those who love them.

But what happens when people with worldview perceptual disorders get into power?

For one thing, we might go looking for Weapons of Mass Destruction in a foreign nation despite the fact that the weapons don’t exist. Worse yet, we might be the basic cause of a civil war and not be able to see it for what it is. The late Saddam Hussein may have been right because this is, in fact, “the mother of all wars.”

Bye for now,
Weird Wally
