ID and the supergo

Sigmund Freud would say that Donald Trump is a perfect representation of America’s id, the emotional child that wants what it wants. Ted Cruz is the runaway ego.

Hillary Clinton is the wannabe superego, the overriding adult that thinks it knows best. Bernie Sanders is the conscience. John Kasich is the most rational balance of these parts, but has little chance in this epic contest in a country with a badly split personality.

It seems a safe bet this will not end well.
