"The religion that hides it's past as a belief system and calls itself objective and demand people to believe it without either proof or reason is the most dangerous belief ever to enter human kind. This is the allover dominant belief system in western cultures and it is threatening to erradicate not only western cutlure but the whole world." Jaques Monod
Västerlandskt tänkande, dess utbildningssystem, dess kontroll och maktutövande är lamslaget av logocentrism, objektivism, och naturalism.

OW THE MYTH OF OBJECTIVITY UNDERMINES PSYCHOTHERAPY
The myth of objectivity underwrites the pathologizing of people throughout much of society. (I should explain that pathologize is a clinical term meaning to view or characterize certain behavior or characteristics as medically or psychologically abnormal, as when Dr. Rebecca Orleane writes, “Women’s natural hormonal shifts have been pathologized into a diagnosis of hormonal disorder.”2) Informed by the mechanistic perspective, classically trained therapists believe that with sufficient information they can drill down to the root causes of an individual’s afflictions and render the appropriate diagnosis. As a result, the therapeutic gaze is often focused on the purported cause of a client’s problems, which has led to reductive thinking—derived from Descartes’s teaching.
For the most part, traditional psychology, including psychotherapy, rests on the foundation of diagnosis, informed by the biomedical approach. Indeed, health insurance companies require a specific diagnosis to justify coverage. The basic tenet of psychological diagnosis is that objectivity exists and that every psychological condition can be assigned a number that appears in a diagnostic guide produced by the American Psychiatric Association known as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM.
To take one example, the latest edition, DSM-5 (fifth edition, released in 2013), has added prolonged bereavement as a diagnosable mental illness. (The technical term is persistent complex bereavement disorder, or PCBD.3) The psychiatric “powers that be” have determined that grieving should conform to a prescribed period of time. The heartbreaking loss one feels over the death of a loved one is not considered a normal human experience, but subject to a formula that needs to fit into diagnostic and pathological criteria.
In order to diagnose psychological conditions, we
