Trump personifies what is positve with ego, and what is negative with egoo.

About: white house: not surprised by trump rally remark - youtube


source: Seth Russell

Sounds to me that the republican politicians are just pandering to people who want to believe lies. Fact is that Trump knows that Obama is not a Muslim. Saying that is a lie. Saying "yes", as Trump did, in response to the question is repeating the lie. He spoke in that way to pander to those people in which that lie resonates ... he wants their vote.


Ego:   Trump personifies what is positive with ego ... its leadership, its courage to just do it, its power to create reality .... which of course is why we like him ... why he is so popular now. We are naturally attracted to this.


Egoo: On the other hand he personifies what is negative with ego ... the separation, the extreme self interest, the lack of sensitivity, the lack of empathy, the ultimate subjectivity, and THE LIES necessary to sustain it.


This is going to be an interesting election for the country.
... also posted on facebook.

To absorb this observation, one really does need to understand both sides of this phenoma we have been calling "ego".


in summary .... Ego, take the good with the bad !!  ... Thanks, that is the freedom.

or perhaps the same thing said differently ...

Talking about somebody else's Ego is like talking about someone else's ISNESS - to me that is clowning around.
Well if this ego thingey was something that is invisible and totally hidden from the outside world, then i would agree with you ... twood be silly.  But it is not.

Making Ego wrong is more ego-selfie stuff. I invented the word Egoo but there is enough goo to go around so enjoy the seasoning you have put on it & the taste. (;-()
not making it wrong, just saying it has positive and negative sides.  I can see both of those working in Trump. 

yes i usurped your "egoo" word for the negative side of ego ... i learned to do that from watching you use it that way ... so i though you would easily absorb me doing the same thing.

So thanks!   egoo seems at times very tasty indeed ... and a good coin i might add.

anyway, i changed my item, thanks for the correction too.

Holding something as negative is making something wrong in ordinary English, maybe not your English, though ...

Well there is a distinction but it is probably not worth making about this. 

We all judge things that we want in our lives ... we pick and choose.  I don't need the negative egoo in my life, yet i can tolerate it up to a point in others and sometimes even trip on it, especially if it's not at my expense.  I can trip on Trump's ego ... yes i can.  CFR is right, there is a sense of ego.  It doesn't really matter whether it is my ego or another's... pretty much the same vibe, one way or the other ... the only difference being how my own being is in relationship to it.  Examples: I bullied a weaker boy in junior high ... i'm confessing that for the first time here ...  it felt as if my story was enhanced at his expense  ... that was wrong.  Another example is i don't like RWG ... it is wrong for me ... it is a waste of my time and energy.   Somebody's pride is fun to watch, but if they carry it to an extreme it is disgusting ... i guess then i could judge his pride wrong especially if it was at my expense ... the same with a person's greed.   We do judge these behaviors that relate to ego all the time ... we talk about them ... it is part of grooming ... it is part of our social life together as human beings. 

I'm glad we do it ... arn't you?

Same old grind & munge.  Can you see another person's ISNESS.  Is your ISNESS worth defending? Are you 100% sure that you know all about your own ISNESS?
know thyself, dude!

To answer your questions, if it is in your inside private space, no i cannot see it.  I usually don't see any need to defend myself ... i do what i do.  Every once in a while somebody will seriously misinterpret my intentions,  then i might try to explain myself.  I am always learning more about myself and the world ... but it is not just learning, not just absorbing, but also creating it to be.     
... but, OMG, your comment is so hostile!  Do YOU know where that is coming from?
Know thyself - do your own self-analysis! You are projecting, Don Quixote.

ok.    So how is your health, Mark.  Did you get fitted for your dentures yet?

.. or whatever the great munge wants to include.  Essentially Ego being the equivalent of "I",  it includes just about everything that has "I" in it (choose any other preposition you want for the relationships.
Nice work!

BTW, while Trump has Ego in it; Ego doesn't have any Trump in it.

apparently it does ... er, what about the Trump card ?    ... er, the win of the win/loose game which is just two egoos fucking with each other. 
Yeah, that doesn't quite work. Nice try though.

Well i presume that the phrase, "trump card", predated Donald Trump ... but, nontheless, the off the cuff association works for me, just a well as your simple denial that "ego doesn't have any Trump in it".  And i would not be surprised, that this association will get used in the political polimics of 2016.   We will of course see ... watch for it ... watch for it. ...
Hottentots may have cabbages in them, but cabbages don't have any hottentots in them.

OMG ... your logic is infallable !     i must bow to a greater cathederal

What does this have to do with the nature of what is called "ego" in our modern world or Trump used as an example of that ?     ... and/or how does it enlighten to the ego of RWG which has not already been learned?
The way you use Ego is more like narcissism than anything else. Wikipedia explains.
Narcissus looks in the mirror.


yep a whole lot of narcissism in ego ... in fact you could call the bad aspect of ego "narcissism", you called it "egoo". 
But maybe its not bad after all should you not want to take sides.

In your favorite binary Universe. where good is ¬bad <=> bad is ¬good.

... Repealing the "negative" of the title? or maybe just confusion.

yep, same negative as in the title with no "repeal" at all.  quite intentional.  no confusion here, going for focus instead.
Doubling down, confusion defining confusion & double negatives.

... or so your egoo must needs say.  

Look, i can explain it, as i must assume you are honestly confused about what i said.   if i choose the positive side, then i will call the negative side "bad".  *I* have noticed the possibility of that choice.
