The psychological effect of politicization

The psychological effect of politicization

The psychological effect of politicization includes the “hubris syndrome”, a personal manifestation of majoritarianism,  psychosocial insensitivity, anger and distain towards opposition and opposing views, intolerance towards and dismissal of criticism, strong armed political and administrative tactics to force compliance with political correctness.

Is the government blind?

Labor union protesters are now asking if the new Democratic Progressive Party’s government of President Tsai Ing-wen is blind to the hunger strikers?

President Tsai Ing-wen is hard of hearing!

A Taiwanese television talk show guest says President Tsai Ing-wen is hard of hearing for not hearing the pleas of the hunger strikers.  The new government has suddenly increased land and property taxes unilaterally, and 15 cities and counties have openly defied the new government’s proposal to allow importation of Japanese foods from areas contaminated by the Fukushima nuclear disaster.  “The new government is a bandit government”, he says.

The mayors and county administrators of nine local jurisdictions who are Democratic Progressive Party supporters were called to an emergency meeting and on the following day, they declared support for the new government’s proposal to allow importation of possibly contaminated Japanese foods.

Over the November 18, 2016, weekend, over 100,000 people marched in the streets against the government’s decision to allow importation of Japanese foods from contaminated areas of the Fukushima nuclear disaster.   Another 200,000 people marched in opposition to proposed revision of civil law to allow same sex marriage, and the hunger strike continues in protest of the government’s decision to cut seven national holidays.  They have protested and demonstrated in front of the Executive Yuan, the Legislative Yuan, the presidential residence and the presidential office.

A contrast

Leftist liberalistic irrationalism has dominated the eight years of the Obama presidency in the United States.  Leftist liberalistic irrationalism has dominated the first six months from May 20 to November 20, 2016, of the new DPP government and President Tsai Ing-wen.  Donald Trump’s election shows a grassroots revolt of conservatism, protectionism, nationalism, against the past eight years of leftist liberalist irrationalism.  President Tsai Ing-wen and the DPP government won the January 16, 2016, Taiwan election.  It is the result of a feeling of discontent of the Taiwanese public towards a seemingly lackluster conservative government of former president Ma Ying-jeou.

The leftist liberalistic irrationalism of the new DPP government and President Tsai Ing-wen has within six months in government, managed to cause tremendous and immediate financial damage to farmers and fishermen.  Taiwan’s participation in several international conferences has been blocked by Chinese Communist regime’s intervention because of President Tsai Ing-wen’s anti-China stance.

It is seemingly obvious that the psychological effect of politicization is popular revolution against political hubris.
