Jingoism at the national level is what Seth’s Ego is at the personal level when he often says Me(I) expressing himself as different from the current argument. 

Seth says
#Bullshit … all “me,i” does is change the focus of a paragraph from writing about people in general … to talking about myself in particular.

#jingoism is like the dictionary deflation recognizes … an extreme … it is an obsession.   me, i am not obsessed with what is inside me. 

Si says
Shit shit and more shit to match Mark’s shitting.

Seth says
null well that is the nature of #RWG.   sometimes it teases out some new understanding.  most often it does not.

Mark de LA says
That which says “I” to whatever it says it to is making a distinction between itself & everything else not covered by the “I” . Such is the nature of an Ego (Latin for I am) . When a country says so (as Trump said in his inauguration speech) it is asserting it’s self interest. 

We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world, but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first. 
   – D.J. Trump

Does not seth & nathan put their own interests first? 

Si says

Seth says
yep.  the choice is to what degree one identifies with  some particular distinction and not with another.  me, i do not identify with America quite so very much as i identify with myself, my family, Renton, the Internet, humanity, nature herself.  America is not really even in my hierarchical sequence of priorities.  with #jingoism the nation is right up there close to #selfie.  

Mark de LA says
So then seth you are a chauvinist of your selfie.smug

Seth says
i don’t know what you are pushing here mark.

What is the hierarchy of priorities indoctrinated in the Navy?  … in the Marines? … what are yours?

Mark de LA says
Dude, you are #aug ing Trump’s self interest in America as chauvinist etc.  You figure it out.null

Seth says
Trump speaking for the ego of America is his job now.  Certainly he himself must identify with that … even with #jingoism … and he did so in his #InaugurationSpeech. 

The only thing *i* #aug is Trump’s conceptions of what America should be.  I would have chosen quite a different ego for America as you know.  i much preferred the one that Obama projected. 

Mark de LA says
Hyper-exaggerating as you go – typical of your party .

Seth says
well it is a fact that #TrumpBashing is starting out far stonger than #ObamaBashing ever did.   and strangely enough it is not split down party partisan lines.  

me, i am actually anti #TrumpBashing and have said so in public.  I did not like your #ObamaBashing and i don’t like #TrumpBashing any more.   I say accept and give him a chance … don’t fight it … but then nobody #listens to me.

My concern here is with the nature of politics itself ...

… and with my daydream that i made up when i was a little kid … a  little man speaking deep inside me, becomming the guiding voice of the country that was me.  

In American politics i am a voyier in the audience being entertained and hopefully not dazzeled by his song and dance.
