My writing is a catastrophe!

No, IMHO your writing was pretty good, but as it was rather long (over 4,000 words), us nitpickers had opportunities to notice a few mistakes. Only pointed out to further improve your English. (Some mistakes I corrected after receiving similar corrections on ET over the years: "ocassion" and "didn't remembered".)

Regarding the hypen in compound adjectives: for example, "second-largest political party" not "second largest political party", "high-profile economists" not "high profile economists", "USSR-leaning stance" not "USSR leaning stance". (IMHO a simple rule, but one native speakers, especially Americans often don't keep.)

*Lunatic*, n.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
