This is also true of folks who are not mentally ill but don't have Anonymous Harv's stamp of approval.
Why should folks who really think
drop their opinion of themselves in favor of
opinions held by hypnotized units of a shallow consumer culture, or units of a shallow religious dictatorship, or units of a godless state tyranny?
Do you remember Knute Rockne, coach of the Notre Dame football team? I like his statement, though not a scientific finding, because it can always be found to be true IN SOME DEGREE:
"Most people, when they think they are thinking, are merely rearranging their prejudices."
What prevents you from thinking, Harv?
Warm regards,
Mike
