Psych Out

We the people, who treasure and try our best to preserve the concepts of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, can never rest because there are those people among us who will try their best to tear down everything we love.

The Left does indeed try to destroy everything we hold dear, and in the end it really don't matter whether it's with the best intentions or not. It's a given they can't see the results of their good intentions, despite the fact that there is more than ample evidence throughout history and presently that Leftist ideas don't work, and, in fact destroy all that is Good, True and beautiful.

The Left has taken over, for the most part, education and turned it into indoctrination.
They have taken over the news organizations, not to report information objectively but to spew Leftist propaganda subjectively.
They have taken over, again, for the most part, the entertainment industry, which also puts out a steady stream of Leftist propaganda. Which is why movies and art tend to suck and be ugly.

The Left even has a foothold in religion of nearly all denominations, producing lukewarm churches that hardly no one likes to go to, and for good reason, because even many Leftists don't like to hear the latest religous-political-social experimentation indoctrination crap.
And of course the Left is very visible in politics. They are a major force in all parts of our government, and easy to spot. For whatever cities, counties, states or federal agencies they are a majority in, you will see massive debt, higher crime, more unemployment, higher taxes, loss of liberties, and a slew of other symptoms of the disease that is Leftism.

This is all a given. We all know this. But there is another area that Leftists have a major foothold, and that is mental health. The majority of psychologists, psychiatrists and therapists are Leftists.

What kind of damage do they cause? Well, for one, they often cater to the victim mentality, which makes it worse, encouraging envy and bitterness.
They push idiotic ideas that Leftists love, such as higher than high self esteem(pride: the bad kind), and the ridiculous idea that all emotions are valid, or justified in every circumstance.
For instance, there is such a thing as unjustified anger, and envy is never a good thing. Neither is all the derangemewnt syndromes out there that the Leftist psyche docs participate in.

In short, Leftist mental health "academics", like their Leftist comrades in other fields, are at war with reality. They are a big part of the problem, not the solution (except perhaps the final solution) in regards to mental healthcare.

For how can a Leftist psychologist treat the root causes of a patient mental illness if they have the same disease?
Oh sure, they can be of some help in the short term, and perhaps with some mental illnesses, but when it gets down to the nitty gritty they just increase the medication or punt.

In the long term, Leftist mental health types hurt not only individual patients but our collective mental health as well, even when most of their own studies (if done with at least an iota of honesty) repeatedly prove their own theories wrong.

So what can we the people, the patriots do about it?
Well, there has been an effort by many patriots to get back into all these jobs that Leftists have infiltrated and taken over, be it education, entertainment, journalism, politics, etc.. This is good news, and I hope we see more.

I hope as well we see more conservatives/classical liberals getting into the mental health field. We really need more Gagdad Bob's, Dr. Sanity's, Bob Newharts, Shrinkwrappeds, Dr. Fraser's, Dennis Pragers, and others out there.
Doctors who care so much they are willing to take considerable heat to do what's right for their patients and for the ideals of Life and Liberty.
They seek Truth and they try to help as many of us that will listen to also seek Truth in our lives, both individually and collectively.

I'm not sure why there ain't more patriots willing to become psychologists , psychiatrists and therapists, but it's crucial to the health of our nation we get more.
Having said that, I'm extremely thankful for the ones we have. Thanks Doc's! You are on the cutting edge in our efforts to open eyes n' ears to Reality.

Hear, hear, Ben.
Don't where I be if not for stumbling on Dr Bob. I guess the same age, but no different. Still looking around casually..browsing..

Hi Rick!

I hear ya buddy! I'd most likely be in a world of hurt if not for Bob and One Cosmos.
I'm more me than I used to be. :^)

Our daughter is a psychologist and a conservative. When she was working for Compass Health, nearly all her co-workers were libs. She quit there two years ago and has been much happier even with the insecurity of a private practice. She does not have to put up with daily chats about global warming, Bushhitler, how evil this country is, etc. etc. Her mental health was suffering. It would even be worse with Obama in office.

She tries, in whatever ways she can, to instill the need for personal responsibility in her patients. Many of her patients are teens and they come from homes where they did not get guidance in personal responsibility and have very poor boundaries. She can't change the world, but I tell her she is doing God's work - because she is. I'm mighty proud of her.

As for me, I don't know where I would be if not for a couple of excellent psychologists who helped me deal with my demons.

Nice piece, Ben! I don't want to imagine where I would be if I hadn't crashed into OC and received such good emergency care. Talk about free health care . . .

Hi Jim!

You're daughter is indeed a Godsend and is doin' His work!
God bless her!

Hi Gecko!

Thanks! That's a good way to put it, ha ha! OC really is free healthcare, and I thank God I found Bob started it after his book and coontinues to offer such a bountiful treasure!
God bless him and his family!
