    Cat, you have called CPS “child snatchers”.

    Do you have any children in your care? Children that you have regular access to?

    So there is actually a great deal of revolutionary potential in Freud, if you take it out of the therapist’s office and the client’s head, and out into the society. But Russian Communism rejected this. So this is why Communism looks so much like Capitalism, as the more radical potential in Marx was rejected.

    And also then, Deleuze and Guattari, being more a synthesis of Nietzsche and Marx, are not that totally different from the Freud and Marx syntheses, like Reich and Marcuse.

    I have always seen the politics of the Right as being about The Family and sexual control.

    I agree with you that invoking the need to organize does give people an excuse to do nothing. And I also am inspired by the example of Che Guevara. And I agree with you about court dramas on TV spreading state propaganda.

    To take the stronger actions we need to be organized, even if it is just an organization of 100 men. But there is a big difference between having 10 people and being just 1.

    The way one organizes is by doing what they are able to on their own, and making a show of it. This is what I am doing on the sidewalk 7 days per week now.

    For those of us who don’t have a legitimated familial biography, life is bleak, it is completely unfair. So we tend to end up on the margins and on the chemicals. This changes when we are able to organize and stop healing, but instead strike back.

    You know that Partnership for a Drug Free America is funded by soft drink, tobacco, alcohol, and prescription medicine money.

    This Walgreens would be a good place for sidewalk action.

    What do you think Psychiatry and Psyhotherapy are for?

    I say they are to enforce the dictates of Capitalism and the Middle-Class Family.

    Frank, this is getting really tiresome. I feel like we are just going around in circles.

    Psychotherapists are licensed, and this comes down to the government. This is both the problem, and the means of taking it apart.

    But no, we can never end all of it, nor should we try.

    So Cat, I see that you are concerned about CPS. You call them child snatchers. Could you ever see CPS taking a child away from you?

    Everyone is free because they can decide how they respond in any situation. But, this does not mean that the world is fair or that any of us have a legitimated social status.

    Not difficult to tar and feather psychotherapists, if their client will turn against them. This is actually quite common.

    I’m not joking here, if there is a situation where there has to be intervention and the gov’t won’t act, I will!

    Just like how John C. Calhoun used to say, “I can hitch up my wagon and load up my slave and no gov’t has the right to stop me”. Well okay then, I’d just follow the example of John Brown, shooting dead the mayor of Charlestown Virigina in his raid on Harper’s Ferry. I’d shoot Calhoun out of his wagon seat.

    The_cat, is there any problem right now between you and any child you have custody of?

    I say that psychiatry / psychotherapy are directly the result of Capitalism and the middle-class family. Not sure how many others agree.

    Racism is probably a big reason that back around the mid 1960’s, the US did not go the same leftward direction as Western Europe. The US has a large racial minority, and a horrible history of race relations. So Europe went towards U health care and social safety net, much faster than the US has.

    Need to protect children. If the government doesn’t do it, I will.

    Here is something else:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J%C3%BCrgen_Habermas#Habermas_versus_postmodernists

    Talked about him, he is a critic of the postmodernists. He is not the only one. There are also specific critics of Deleuze and Guattari.

    Well, I think Habermans and postmodernists are both useful. If people want to discuss them, I feel it worth while.
