Trump's Presidency

Sweden as Fake News at Fox News?

Emanuel L. Paparella, Ph.D.

[yt_dropcap type=”square” font=”” size=”14″ color=”#000″ background=”#fff” ] R [/yt_dropcap]ecently a Fox News program featured a Swedish defense and national security advisor, Nils Buildt, interviewed by Bill O’Reiley. As it turns out, Builtd is unknown to any military and foreign affairs officials in Sweden. Security experts in Sweden have revealed that he isn’t a familiar figure in their ranks in that country.

What is intriguing in this latest deranged episode is that Buildt seemed to echo some of the previous assertions of the President. They decry what is alleged to be the inability of Sweden to integrate socially the immigrant newcomers.

Important to keep in mind that this has occurred after the amateur-incompetent in chief in the White House mentioned to the public “what’s happening last night in Sweden” which turned out to be another psychotic delusion quite similar to that of the thousands of cheering people in New Jersey as the twin towers in Manhattan came down.

Are we dealing with incompetence or with deception, or perhaps both? Hard to say, but it remains crucial to keep in mind that we live in the world of “alternate reality.” It must have felt that way in the imperial times of emperor Caligula in the times of the Roman Empire.

Professor Paparella has earned a Ph.D. in Italian Humanism, with a dissertation on the philosopher of history Giambattista Vico, from Yale University. He is a scholar interested in current relevant philosophical, political and cultural issues; the author of numerous essays and books on the EU cultural identity among which A New Europe in search of its Soul, and Europa: An Idea and a Journey. Presently he teaches philosophy and humanities at Barry University, Miami, Florida. He is a prolific writer and has written hundreds of essays for both traditional academic and on-line magazines among which Metanexus and Ovi. One of his current works in progress is a book dealing with the issue of cultural identity within the phenomenon of “the neo-immigrant” exhibited by an international global economy strong on positivism and utilitarianism and weak on humanism and ideals.
