Thought Balloon: Therapy is a symptom

thought balloon small asterisk

*We live in a time of plague; among other plagues, we suffer a plague of diagnosis; a sub-plague of the general plague of knowing (gnosis), a plague of determined knowing.

Therapy is a symptom of the disease.

*See Karl Kraus, who wrote “One of the most widespread diseases is diagnosis.”
