    Navarro

    1. Brent D. Griffiths is a web producer for POLITICO. He is a former POLITICO and POLITICO Pro intern who covered breaking news and health care. He received his undergraduate degree from of the University of Iowa, where he worked all four years for the independent student newspaper, The Daily Iowan. The following are excerpts from his 06 October 2018 news report headlined "Navarro: ‘Special place in hell’ for Trudeau".

    (Begin excerpts)
    White House trade adviser Peter Navarro lit into Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday, saying there's a "special place in hell" for a world leader who double crosses President Donald Trump.

    "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door," Navarro told Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday." "And that's what bad-faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference."

    When asked whether the president shares his views, Navarro said the sentiment came “right from Air Force One.“ At the time of the interview, the president had just landed in Singapore for his upcoming summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

    "To my friends in Canada, that was one of the worst political miscalculations of the Canadian leader in modern Canadian history," Navarro added. "All Justin Trudeau had to do was take the win."

    The president slammed Trudeau via Twitter on Saturday, calling out his counterpart for acting "meek and mild." Trump and the White House are upset that Trudeau told reporters that Canada would stand firm when it came to new U.S. tariffs and “not be pushed around.".... (End excerpts)

    2. With regard to Navarro's threat of "a special place in hell" for Trudeau, I am inspired to coin the term "Navarro" with the following meanings:

    (a) The name (as a proper noun ) for the deepest part or level of Hell.

    (b) The dead end of a period such as life, career, dynasty, reign, etc.

    The following sentences show how to use the new term:

    (a) In an eulogy for his political foe, he sarcastically praised the deceased for having the guts to race ahead of him to Navarro.

    (b) The politician threatened to send the opposition to Navarro.

    (c) Following the death of his wife, life has become meaningless and he feels as though he has fallen into Navarro.

    (d) The president yelled at the reporter who pestered him with annoying questions: "Fake news! Get lost in Navarro!"

    (e) As he was the favourite eunuch of the emperor, he was the second most powerful person in the empire. However, after the death of the emperor, he knew he was at the navarro of his political career. Hence he requested the new emperor to let him retire to his home village.

    (f) As his illness became more serious, he knew he was approaching the navarro of his life.

    (g) As the sale of his latest music album is not up to expectation, he knows that he has reached the navarro of his singing career.

    (h) As the rebels broke into the palace, the emperor committed suicide, knowing that his dynasty had reached its navarro.

    Navarrophobia

    1. The following are excerpts from an article headlined "Chronophobia".

    (Begin excerpts)
    Chronophobia is a specific psychological phobia which manifests itself as a persistent, abnormal and unwarranted fear of time or of the passing of time....

    Sufferers may be aware of a vague feeling that events are moving too fast and running away with themselves, and that it is difficult to make sense of the way events are unfolding. Chronophobia is often marked by a sense of derealization in which time seems to speed up or slow down, and some people may develop circular thought patterns, racing thoughts and symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder.

    Chronophobia is most often experienced by two main groups: the elderly, and by those incarcerated in prison (where it also known as prison neurosis). The elderly tend to have a lot of idle time on their hands, and often time drags very slowly for them. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it is common for old people, particularly those facing terminal illnesses, to be hyper-aware of their imminent death (death anxiety), and this constant threat of death can cause an overwhelming sensation of chronophobia. As people get older, their metabolism and brain functions slow down, making them even more susceptible to chronophobia. Prison inmates also tend to have extensive periods of unstructured time, which may lead them to excessive contemplation of the passing of time, the length of time of their sentence, the number of days remaining until their release, etc. They also typically experience high levels of anxiety and stress due to their circumstances, which puts them especially at risk....

    2. Next I am going to discuss an entirely new phobia which is opposite to chronophobia but more destructive and terrifying to the sufferer.

    It can be defined as the persistent, abnormal and unwarranted fear of no future or the irrational feeling that time has come to a halt for the sufferer but moving, even faster, for all other people around him. Everything to the sufferer seems to come to a navarro (a term coined by me to mean "dead end" in an earlier thread). He feels as though he has fallen into Navarro (a term coined by me to mean the deepest part of Hell in an earlier thread).

    You can imagine the phobia of the sufferer, if you had a nightmare in which you were rendered motionless while seeing all other people surging ahead till they were out of sight leaving you alone in the world. Similarly, it is a terrible feeling for a country to have such a feeling of stagnation or growing impotence while the rest of the world are progressing or surging ahead in development.

    In such a phobia, the sufferer tends to be unduly alarmed and overexcited when he sees others planning for the future because he simply sees no future for himself. For instance, when a champion athlete reaches his peak performance, he may have such a phobia. When he finds his rival training very hard day and night, he will make all sorts of weird claims, saying all other athletes "aren’t going to have a future".

    Taking another example, a boxing champion who has reached his physiological limit may develop such a phobia as though time has stopped entirely for him. No matter how hard he trains, he feels that he can never return to his former self or "make himself great again". Hence when he discovers his rival drawing up plans to train for the next boxing match, he will hurl all sorts of wild accusations, saying all other boxers "aren’t going to have a future".

    As a follow-up to the term “navarro” which I coined in an earlier thread, I call the new phobia about “no future” or “stagnation” or “dead end in time” by the name of navarrophobia”.
