From Wiki: Hypocriticism: these individuals are hypocrites who criticize and accuse others about the vice that they are guilty of themselves.
To understand pathological criticism and pathological responses to criticism, it is often not sufficient to see the individuals concerned in isolation – they should be placed in the total context in which the criticism or the response to it occurs. Particular situations can “bring out” the “bad side” of people, which in the normal run of events would not occur. Pathological criticism occurs especially in situations of intense conflict or competition, where the normal internal and external controls on people’s behavior begin to break down.
Logic? Fairness? What has that to do with politics in the USA today? Nothing. Both sides have acknowledged that they are in a war for the soul of the nation. It is quite apparent that both sides are going to use every weapon they have, including “nuclear options” in order to win.
The left took some very big steps towards socialism under Obama and they were, and still are, totally distraught that the right has not just stopped it but has done a lot to reverse it under Trump. Going back to pre-Obama policies is not acceptable to the left and going further into, or remaining in, socialism is not acceptable to the right.
I think the left would be better off if they could acknowledge that they went “a law to far” (to borrow a phrase) and (to borrow another phrase) just “stand back and stand by”. Big changes are best taken in small doses.
