What a load of psychobabble.

Horseshit R1.

Bandy X. Lee is a renowned and respected psychiatrist and president of the World Mental Health Coalition.

She raises some interesting and realistic points for thought.

One does eventually realize that we can't have everything we want. It is defective reasoning for some people NOT to accept this immutable fact. There's only 2 responses: 1)Either society indulges such a need or 2.) they face annihilation. If we can't apoease them, ultimately it ends in destruction.

Good post, OP. I don't usually care about the psyc takes on Plump but this is solid.

Here is the takeaway: "The treatment is removal of exposure."

All 74 million of them.

{R5} See I don’t think we’re to believe all 74 million who voted for him are a part of the “ shared psychosis” There are as many religious opportunists, contrarians, liberal baiters, greedy capitalists etc as there are true believers. Of course good old-fashioned racism and religious zealotry are never to be underestimated. Mitch McConnell is not a Qanon quack for example. The average Republicans support or complicity with this man and his crimes against America almost makes them more chilling to me.

I do think "removal of exposure" will help.

Not all 74 million Trump voters are Capitol-storming nutzoids. Many just want to see that the government is working on jobs, their pocketbooks and health care.

So if Biden/Harris can get some big wins through Congress that directly affect folk—including the $2k stimulus, shoring up the ACA and revving up vaccinations—it will take the temperature down considerably.

Of course, the pandemic complicates all of this. His COVID response got Trump voted out of office, but Biden is going to be subject to 10 times the criticism for any slowdown or fuckup in getting the vaccine out to 75% of Americans ASAP. And that is looking like an almost insurmountable challenge.

I enjoyed reading her analyses. Thanks, OP.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
