Reality is distorted under Trump

DEAR EDITOR:

Your views can be broken and changed, as a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Your mind is the most important part of your body. Your thought processes makes decisions with your actions, good or bad, right or wrong.

I recall a television program, “Life is Worth Living,” with Bishop Fulton J. Sheen. The bishop explained what our captured American soldiers were subjected to. The enemy started a interrogation process to break the mind of the captured soldier, scramble the brain with distorted psychological thoughts.

They would put the soldier in solitary confinement where everything was wrong. The floor was slanted on an angle; the bed was on a angle, so they would roll off it. The walls where not plumb, the ceiling was angled different from the floor and the room was not square, but lopsided. The room was painted multiple colors with strips and angles; everything possible that could distort reality. The conversions by the interrogator were worded to not make sense, such as, “I want you to look up,” while they pointed down. Day in and day out they would apply confusion to their mind, trying to break them, and in many cases, it worked. They became the enemy and went against their homeland.

I believe what is going on in our nation today with this president, Donald Trump. Relating to his actions and statements made, it is putting everyone in that psychological room, distorting and trying to confuse our nation’s minds from past dogma. Breaking and controlling the thought process while changing fostered beliefs, eventually persuading the nation using his propaganda as the past becomes false history.
