    “As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their hearts desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”— H.L. Mencken (1920)


    Mencken’s prophecy has finally come to pass
    — Rex Tillerson (2017)

    Peter and his wife Ginger have pioneered Empathic Therapy.

    "An empathic approach allows a therapist to use the healing power of professional therapy relationships rather than the mechanical or chemical manipulation of the brain. The goal of therapy is to help clients maximize their ability to be empathic and loving toward themselves and others, to live ethically, and to become autonomous and self-determining in the fulfillment of all their chosen goals and ideals.

    "In contrast, biological psychiatry views people as objects and suppresses their feelings with brain-disabling treatments, thereby interfering with the development of empathy and love, and the ability to take rationally determined actions based on sound values."

    ~ Peter Breggin​

    You know why I bang my head against the wall? Because it feels so good when I stop.

    "EVERY mass media outlet has an agenda.

    Individual incidents are the easiest thing to report in a biased manner.

    Bias can be seamlessly introduced by omission, manipulative language, or storytelling technique.

    These incidents are usually the most compelling pieces of news and they are typically even more compelling to their demographic because of their inherent bias.

    By default, every audience wants to be told what they already know because that creates positive feelings in that audience prompting them to consume more of that product.

    SO

    If you value high quality current event input do not focus on individual events, anecdotes, or stories. Focus your attention on aggregated statistics, broad trends, and peer-reviewed studies. Fill your brain with data that lacks emotion, because emotion will always be manipulated for reasons that are not designed to benefit you."

    I have a high-up sibling in the biz. If you work there you know the angle. It's not subtle at all.

    Remember when our leaders could articulate ideas?

    "[The] nation state as a fundamental unit of man's organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force. International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation state."

    ~ Zbigniew Brzezinski, 1969
