In trying to understand Trump's egocentric mind, words and behaviour, and how he became a cult leader revered by millions of Americans, it is indispensable to step back from the insanity of American politics. For this

purpose let us consider the thoughts of bestselling author Eckhart Tolle in his book A New Earth, written more than a decade ago.

"The mental illness we call paranoia manifests a symptom that is an element of every ego, although in paranoia it takes on a more extreme form. The more the sufferer sees himself persecuted, spied on, or threatened by others,

the more pronounced becomes his sense of being the centre of the universe around whom everything revolves, and the more special and important he feels as the imagined focal point of so many people's attention. His sense of

being victim, of being wronged by so many people, makes him feel very special. In the story that forms the basis of his delusional system, he often assigns to himself the role of both victim and potential hero who is going to

save the world or defeat the forces of evil."

Somewhat prophetic do you think?
