I checked out YouTube.

Have you ever heard of the phrase, "Keep it simple, stupid"?

This guy is a mess. According to him, we are ALL damaged goods. No parent knows how to parent. They inevitably inflict trauma on their children unwittingly, and so we are all in need of healing. We must allow him to teach us how unhealthy we all are, and then be told that we must read his books in order to undo the damage that we had inflicted upon us as we were growing up. He even goes on pea-brain talk-show circuits and speaking engagements in order to promote the proprietary wisdom he learned after years of suffering. Can you believe he verbalizes this? He felt f*ck*d-up, so certainly the rest of us do, too? Is that how things work?

This guy is even worse than I thought. I think he is more of a charlatan than a healer. Anybody can write what he writes. It is pop-psychology garbage. I see nothing but his need to project his troubled mind on to society. I think it is his only recourse to take away his feelings of being abnormal earlier in life - if not presently.

His conception of humanity is depressing. It makes me feel helpless. People get very depressed when they lose their spouse to cancer or someone is dumped by the love of their life and finds themselves feeling all alone in the world. Where is society's toxic culture here?

Normal lives include normal depressions. It's just normal for this to occur in any society or culture. Death is not toxic. It just is.

I tend to get angry whenever I see people project their cynical, complicated, and depressing views of the world onto others. That's exactly what Of course, Gabor Maté doesn't acknowledge that there might be a few of us who are normal (a bit of satire). Far fewer people are as hung-up as he says they are - or as he was or currently is.

He makes me want to vomit.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
