One thing that distinguishes this era of history from others is that social media allows us to watch mental crackups in real time. Mental illness is a pernicious disease. It’s gradual and it’s subtle in its early stages and then it gets extreme.
Kanye West, aka Ye, is clearly having some kind of a breakdown. I don’t think you need to study psychiatry in Vienna to conclude that.
He lasted back on Twitter for about a week, which is how long it took him to get into a beef with former BFF Elon Musk. He’s apparently unable to forget about that and now he’s got a wild theory about who and what Musk is.
Hell of a campaign platform. Seems a bit racist regarding The Owner, but hey, free speech right? pic.twitter.com/lQR04KhMTF

So Obama is what now, exactly? The product of a Black genius somewhere — maybe on another planet — and a supermodel from here?
This is scary. This is another situation, like with Mike Lindell, where you say, “Does anybody care about this man? Is there any possibility of an intervention and getting him some help?”
And this is not some recent development. This has been building for some time.

It's the 'South African Supermodel' part that's throwing me here. pic.twitter.com/QfCyYJnGve

Remember the days when we used to see something so crazy we’d say to ourselves ‘this must be fake’ or at the very least someone’s idea of parody?Now we see something so crazy we instantly know it’s real…it’s like we’ve crossed over to the other side of a funhouse mirror

Monitoring social media is now akin to supervising a mental hospital. Interesting.
