Ok I'll play.
Hey there doc! I have this problem you see. I don't think I have any real psychiatric problems. Is this true?
I have heard that people go to see shrinks, to shrink there world into little explainable boxes and store them among the cobwebs of there minds basement. But what happens when you got to many boxes around and you end up tripping over them?
And after all even those who go see shrinks really just go there to enforce the path that they themselves have chosen to follow, or got there to hear what they want to hear, and most want to be told what they want to do, but the majority I think just want to be told what to do.
So who is the crazy one? Him who wants to be told that he is OK and all is right with his world. Or the one who agrees to say what he wants to hear for a fee?
And so doc what is your conformation of my above words on a path I outlined?
So whats the verdict doc? Am I crazy?
I think you are correct in your line of questioning...I agree we shouldn't assume shrinks are our friends...even if they mean no harm personally as individuals, they exist in a network of money and power that is corrupt. So you are right to question this system and you probably aren't crazy, at least not based on that.
Not at all, perfecly sane!
Funny how that might not be as comforting to be told as it first seems, no? Sanity is a kind of responsibility you know.
