Stuart Schneiderman believes
that today’s therapists are trying to indoctrinate and acculturate people. Let’s not be so naïve as to call it medical or paramedical treatment. The fact that therapists have professional licenses and credentials is a ruse, part of a giant scam. The fact that insurance companies call it treatment and pay for it makes them the biggest dupes of all.
…Therapists who numb you to your sense of shame are rendering you antisocial and asocial.
…People should be very careful when they start promoting shamelessness. Beyond the inconvenient sexual practices it encourages, it also induces people to be rude, crude and lewd… to say nothing of… ill-mannered.
…There are no brand new answers to life’s bigger questions. The big questions have been theorized and philosophized to within an inch of their lives. You might feel that you are a unique individual but you are primarily, as Aristotle said, a social being. Beyond the fact, as the philosopher said, that no human being can survive outside of a group, your mental health—assuming that we care about that—depends in great part on your ability to get along with other people. The perfectly individuated version of your self-actualized being is someone that no one will even want to get along with.
Schneiderman links to a woman named King, who sought a feminist therapist.
Since King has become a true believing feminist she does not question—not for an instant—the harms visited on women by feminism. She has bought into the dogma. She has been thoroughly indoctrinated. She thinks of feminism as salvation. It is saving her from the hell of organized religion.
If she believes that she has gotten out of religion, she should think again. She has effectively been swallowed up in a cult, where questioning the prevailing dogmas is strictly forbidden.
King believes that therapy has taught her critical thinking and has allowed her to ask questions. Obviously, she does not know that theology is about nothing but asking questions. I cannot speak about her church, but there are many religions out there. Nearly all of them encourage you to ask questions. Yet, feminism, her preferred cult, thinks very ill of anyone who questions feminism.
…One understands that critical thinking, in the feminist sense, means trashing the patriarchy, attacking organized religion, finding fault with all things American and Anglo-Saxon, denouncing capitalism and fighting for the liberation of all oppressed peoples. It does not involve being critical of feminism. If you dare question feminism you are a misogynist sexist pig.
Therapists have no real understanding of these issues. They have allowed their minds to be hijacked by the promoters of politically correct ideology and have made their clinical practice into an exercise in indoctrinating people in this belief system, all the while pretending that it is treatment.
