The Willful Ignorance of Positive Thinking Ideology
Most people who know me in person are well aware that I am no fan of positive thinking ideology. To take one aspect of social interaction and myopically delude yourself into thinking that you can change the physical world with brain waves actually leaves modern persons with little more understanding of how the world actually works than medieval barbarians. It takes an incredible amount of self-imposed willful ignorance for a modern person to pretend they can do magic with their thoughts.
This video points out the problem with positive thinking ideology and nicely sums up much of how I feel.
