Envy is a symptom of Trump Derangement Syndrome
« on: November 04, 2019, 06:38:55 PM »
Trump derangement syndrome (TDS) is a mental disorder in which a person has effectively been driven insane due to his hatred of Donald Trump, to the point where he abandons all logic and reason.  Such people are impervious to facts that contradict their preconceived notions of the president. 
As to a syndrome, it's a group of symptoms that consistently occur together and indicate the presence of a particular mental or physical disease.  For example, symptoms for the onset of diabetes include things like increased thirst and urination, insulin resistance, high belly fat, blurred vision, and so on.
One of the symptoms of TDS is envy.  It is one of the main causes for driving many TDS sufferers over the edge.  When speaking of envy, however, one should make a distinction between it and jealousy, as the two are commonly used interchangeably.  Defining jealousy, sociologist Helmut Schoeck writes in Envy: A Theory of Social Behavior, "Basically, jealousy can be defined as a heightened emotional state for either the craving for something another person has or the fear of losing something to another."  As such, jealousy can be constructive.  For example, if a man is jealous that his neighbor received a promotion at work, it could spur him to work harder to earn one of his own. 
Envy is different.  It is far darker, which is why traditional Christian teaching lists envy, not jealousy, as one of the Seven Deadly Sins.  Peter Kreeft, a professor of philosophy at Boston College, writes in Back to Virtue
Quote
Envy is deadly because it is demonic. The ancient Book of Wisdom says, "By the envy of the devil, death came into the world" (2:24).  Pride and envy are Satan's own special sins.  Envy is horrible because it comes straight from Hell.

President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

Perfectly describes the mainstream media and their rabid followers.
