    is this a thread about psychoanalysis, or one about criticizing what everyone says?

    1. Find adjective.
    2. Re-lable argument based on adjective rather than the premise or what the modifier is trying to define. Aka, build straw man argument after failing to understand main point.
    3. Call the police and cry like a baby.

    If it rubs you the wrong way, that I am using the adjectives liberal and conservative to discuss my experience with psychoanalysis, then sawd off and don't read the post. Where in the forum rules does it say I can't use these adjectives in non-political arguments.

    P.s. I don't have to explain this to you, but did you even read the post slow mo?
    BS;DR

    This thread is a real-time, visceral demonstration of psychological defense mechanisms.

    I feel the OP is a bit exaggerating by feeling like a slave. For me, the story the OP tells us sounds more or less like overworking; not a slavery. As long as you still sign a working contract with your employer, you cannot say you are a slave, however overwork you are. It is a hiring or being hired legal bound instead. An employee is actually only hired by their employer. As far as I concern hiring has a huge difference with slavery. A slave is owned by his slave-master; not hired. Because of ownership claim of the slave, A slave can be sold to another person by his/her slavemaster. The person who purchased a slave from its former slave-master will become his next slave-master. I don't think this is still practiced in professional working environment nowadays, as far as I know.

    Oh, you'd be surprised, just how little things change apart from the thinnest veneer of social change.
    ...Because I'm Mr. Brightside.


    Oh, we're always all right. You remember that. We happen to other people.

    It reminds me of Danseen's rants about therapy and how no one understood them.

    I'm inclined to like your post because it is the first one void of the narcissism exhibited by the aforementioned. That being said, we are bought and sold to the highest bidder through an artificial mechanism. The mechanism is artificial because it is advertised as a market. However the market should be free, when in actuality it contains a very limited probability set. This probability set is mostly controlled in the form of a decision making penepticon. These aren't my ideas, again, we are high class slaves by definition.

    Stop trolling my thread. Get lost if you have nothing to contribute. The fact that you are reading my objections and still trolling isn't surprising to me at all given that many of your other posts are as ignorant in nature.

    I really hope it does. I really hope things do change. I see a lot of trust fund babies climbing through the internet debating free market principles. My psychologist failed me when I outpaced him in salary. I became more trumpian and he became more egalitarian. Initially I was the socialist, but by the end of our sessions I became independently wealthy and dependent on the machine. He came to detest the very principles he upheld when we first met. I told him I felt like a slave; he told me I wasn't. I became the director in the department of a large organization and he became my dumping container. I still feel like a slave, and know that we all are, even me with all my money and objects. I know more because I've risen to the top and I can see that everyone at the bottom is myopic to the fact they are serving unknown forces slavishly that transcend their psyche. No amount of psychoanalysis will stop the machine and free them. Psychoanalysis maintains it actually.

    I bring the criticism up about psychology and it's practice as a way to maintain the status quo because I am the top .0001 percent and I'm trying to warn others...yet at the same time those very victims get mad at me thinking I'm some sort of conservative criticism liberalism. Truth is I'm not for the current system, but I am among its main benefactors and beneficiaries.

    So sorry If I seem abrasive to the trolls but they are completely misunderstanding the point.

    This isn't a debate about liberals and conservatives. It's much, much bigger than tat. It's the debate about psychoanalysis and the maintenance of the death machine, aka modern civilization.
