There was an article in the New York Times, an interview with a conservative Christian therapist. The comments were
*Didn't read the article, but therapists shouldn't be conservative.
*Politics shouldn't enter into therapy the first place (and therapists shouldn't be conservative).
*Healthy eating is a classist concept. Same with "resilience."
*Conservatives have no empathy, therefore shouldn't be therapists.
*But Trump! January 6! White privilege! Conservatives want a therapist to tell them their world view is correct. Reality has a liberal bias.
*We liberals are nuanced and complex, not like those simple minded people who think in terms of us and them.
A few people had a different take, and thought the woman in question had something of value to offer. The number of people, though, who seemed to lack all self-awareness, was astounding. The willingness to say that basic human concepts, like making good use of one's time, do not apply to poor people, is absolutely condescending. Some of my friends understand that we cannot be so smug.
