The hot sun seems like the fire of hell on earth

The hot sun seems like the fire of hell on earth
And London  is a sinful place we know~
What monster will this horror bring to birth?

Well, the government  will pay for what it’s worth
We’ll send them on a ramble down Soho
The hot sun seems like the fire of hell on earth

England is now visited by death
A baby thrown from Towers of Camelot
What rough beast will this horror bring to birth?

The good will die, the evil have them cursed
What will follow on from this horror?
The hot sun seems like the fire of hell on earth

Is life a  generous gift we are not worth?
We  have no ethics, love, we have no courage
What rough beast will this horror bring to birth?

We used to feel that through our life we grow
We’d leave seeds for someone else to sow
The hot sun seems like the fire of hell on earth
What monster will this evil bring to birth?

 

Freud– the shadowy side of life

Psychoanalysts contend that things are much more complicated. For one thing, psychological pain needs first not to be eliminated but understood. From this perspective, depression is less like a tumour and more like a stabbing pain in your abdomen: it’s telling you something, and you need to find out what. (No responsible GP would just pump you with painkillers and send you home.) And happiness – if such a thing is even achievable – is a much murkier matter. We don’t really know our own minds, and we often have powerful motives for keeping things that way. We see life through the lens of our earliest relationships, though we usually don’t realise it; we want contradictory things; and change is slow and hard. Our conscious minds are tiny iceberg-tips on the dark ocean of the unconscious – and you can’t truly explore that ocean by means of CBT’s simple, standardised, science-tested steps.

This viewpoint has much romantic appeal. But the analysts’ arguments fell on deaf ears so long as experiment after experiment seemed to confirm the superiority of CBT – which helps explain the shocked response to a study, published last May, that seemed to show CBT getting less and less effective, as a treatment for depression, over time.

Examining scores of earlier experimental trials, two researchers from Norway concluded that its effect size – a technical measure of its usefulness – had fallen by half since 1977. (In the unlikely event that this trend were to persist, it could be entirely useless in a few decades.) Had CBT somehow benefited from a kind of placebo effect all along, effective only so long as people believed it was a miracle cure?

 

 

To tax the wealthy  is extremely cruel

The British state is cracking, I perceive
The government is full of idle fools
The people here are lied to and deceived

You can’t keep hurting the poor and those in need
There is a point where chaos over-rules
The British state is cracking, I perceive

We know that some  economists   believe
To tax the wealthy  is extremely cruel
The people here are lied to and deceived
Thatcher said the wealth would trickle through

The cult of economics is derived
From axioms sent by  sharks who never grieve
The British state is cracking, I perceive

The bias goes against those who can’t plead
But Grenfell Tower broke all the frigging rules~
The people there have died because deceived

The crack will escalate and thunder roll
Theresa May has made her first & last own goal
The British state is cracking, I perceive
The people here once passive , roar displeased
