Acting-Out Politics

Weblog opens discussion about the psychology of Bushmerican style of behavior.

9th letter to the readers The new book Ideological Superstitions and Political Misperceptions in the 20th-21st Centuries by Victor Enyutin focuses on the ability of the mature ego to psychologically anchor moral and ethical imperatives, and argues that it is people’s psychological underdevelopment what commits crimes and makes them violate the norms of civilized behavior.

  8th letter to the readers   My new book, Ideological Superstitions and Political Misperceptions in the 20th-21st Centuries analyzes why USAmerican and Russian elite decision-makers and the masses of people in both countries are prone to follow the prejudices and superstitions in their worldviews and perception of other people.
