The current be-who-you-think-you-are trend in America validates the words of German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, who wrote, “In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.”

The word insanity ought to be deleted from the American lexicon. From this time forward we ought to consider that there is no individual insanity because the collective is insane. Moreover, in order to be more inclusive, we should add the category of ‘trans-organism,’ with all rights and privileges. In this way, those individuals who wish to self-identify as an animal, plant, fungus or bacterium will not feel excluded. Everyone is welcome to climb aboard President Obama’s rainbow disoriented express.
