Even Foxnews is right once in a great while. I find Dr. Phil style pop psychologists really annoying. Not only is it insulting to real psychologists, that have to actually study and work to actually solve the problem, it keeps us in a bad mindset. We're always trying for the quick fix. We really want to believe that life patterns set in for years and years can be fixed by some fat man yelling. That's all very nice, and fun for the audience, but in real life, nothing ever comes that easy. We are a pretty unproductive society, because we're constantly insisting on doing stuff that just doesn't work. Why, I have no idea. It's really confusing.
