Kumare, Scoundrel or Liberator ???

Posted by Rex Alexander on Wed 14 Feb 24 in Books & Media, Rational Thinking, Religion |

  This is more about rational thinking in the larger sense than REBT per se. It illustrates in the most scandalous and amazing way human beings profound tendency to think, emote and  behave gullibly, credulously and superstitiously. As Dr. Ellis ‘demurely’ said, “Humans are out of their fucking minds!”               […]

Mortification of the Self

Posted by Rex Alexander on Thu 23 Nov 23 in Albert Ellis, REBT & Other therapies compared, Religion, Self esteem, Uncategorized, USA, z-15 |
