More about how pop psych is like a religion. It's always promising life changing cures through belief. If you really believe in the power of positive thinking, your depression will be cured! Sure, some are faith healed, but they are susceptible to that. I worry about people who don't get better on the placebo. Will they be attacked by the adherents? Will they say fuck this, and get some real help? I just hope they aren't forever fucked up by this.
