Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Case of Sophie H. is an abnormal psych case.
You've little to no idea how to remedy "abnormal psych" (a/ka/a neurology), possibly symptomatic dissociative behavior which harms oneself or others. What criteria of (ab)normal psych --a/k/a rational--behavior remains to be agreed as "preponderance" of human industry--socially (un)acceptable artifacts also known as "culture".

I'm reminded by Case of Sophie H. of past and presnt controversy in public discourse arising from the question, "Who is a jew?", arising from  eurocentric academic epistemology c. 1700 classifying race "science" (Bernal, Vol I-III, bibliography). Poor, Sophie H., struggling to reconcile "ego" and "superego" archetypes of "the good life" in oneself, prescribed by the ones-who-cannot-be-named authors of secular fiction, 4th cen BCE to present. Achieving equibrium would hard werk for anyone relying on "expert" guidance to a psychological "norm", dependencies on dominance of "id" in human relations. P > R - C: privatizing profits and all that melodrama.

Having warned his reades against the dangers of analogy ("it behooves us to be very careful"), 17  Freud proceeded to the confidant elaboration of the most dangerous, "the only really statisfactory analogy': that between individual and society: "Individual Psychology is from the very first the same as Social Psychology," Freud announced. 18 [General Psychological Theory, Theories on paranoia, masochism, repression, melancholia, the unconscious, the libido, and other aspects of thehuman psyche, anthology: MacMillan, 1963, p 17]

People are what they eat. They are what they've learned --but for genomic determination hidden in the "we." BTDT. California Cohort of Petty Landlords could not answer the question, Who is a jew? any more than they can answer "Who is a black or African American,"  or "Who is native or indegenous," or "Who is Asian," given even historical, documentented, authoritative schema establishing public and private regard for legitimate issue of patrimony --rarely alluded to citienship-- which they know and love so well:
Karl Lueger (1844-1910), well before the "final solution"
9. General Boulanger and Captain Dreyfus (1894-1906), well before the "final solution"

Poor Sophie H. From whom was she hiding?
