Acquiescent in power

Therapy positions itself on the basis that “all problems are internal”. All problems are explained as being due to the client “not being in touch with herself”.

Thus therapy washes itself of any social or political responsibility.

It simply accepts the current social and political status-quo. And thus implicitly works hand-in-glove with power.

So much for radical.
