European Psychosis

There have been a lot of extremely well-informed and intelligent analyses of the current situation in Europe (you know who you are, Daniel Finkelstein): I just have the following observation.

Countries, when put under intolerable pressure, exhibit the same psychological disorders as people do: denial, delusion and psychosis.

(Based on recent interviews with German, French and Greek politicians and commentators on TV).
