The Satanic Temple's Grey Faction, works hard to de-monetise, de-platform, and denounce the unchecked industry of Conspiracy Therapists plaguing American psychotherapy.

It's a less re-tweeted, but much more deserving example of a cancel culture campaign.

There's a perfect storm of satanic panic, conspiracy theories, pseudoscience, and the commodification of mental illness that the McMartin Preschool fallout never truly quashed.

Psychological therapy has always been a hot mess. Its founding father, Sigmund Freud grew a cult as popular with the Victorians as their love of nipple-rings (Like most of the bold claims I make here, you'll enjoy Googling that shit).


Freud's shrewd and prolific campaign of spam letters, influencer date rape, and outrageous PR took the world by storm, all the more impressively because he simultaneously told everyone they wanted to fuck their own mothers.

An ever expanding religious-business franchise, Freudian psychodynami...

The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive for this episode, and I’m frankly confused.


The only criticism came from Twitter, and although they hadn’t heard the episode, they took the time to tell us we should not have done it. As ridiculously prototypically Twitter as that sounds, I agree with them.

All four of us procrastinated and resented both the preparation and recording of this interview.

The editing was the most excruciating torture; it was mostly three people, continuously shouting over each other. The fourth was most likely biting their fist to distract from the pain of the cringe.


I can’t listen back to it. It’s a slow-motion car crash of awkwardness, anger, miscommunication, failures to listen, and an inability to reach any consensus.

Worse, it’s an indictment of our entire premise and format of the show.

So far, it’s been intensely fun to swim in different waters from the mainstream. Countering the left vs. right narrative felt like we’d opened up a whole new dimension...

Facebook is being blamed for Donald Trump’s election, Scotland’s vote to remain, Britain’s vote to leave, a generation of unemployable self-obsessed illiterates, and the deaths of journalism, privacy and democracy.

We’re facing the bitter aftertaste of guzzling a cocktail of corporate greed, Russian sabotage, anomic vanity, lethargic legislation, and auto-accepting the T&Cs for every app, website and WiFi provider we've encountered.

Facebook’s Pixels have been watching us for nearly as long as Google's. Both sell our data as a product to their clients. That's how an app that you downloaded for free, earned $40 Billion last year.

Clients of Lookalike Audiences have openly paid to manipulate groups' opinions, long before anyone from Cambridge Analytica blew their whistle.

If you’re curious which of your data are for sale, it’s one of the more transparent practices of Facebook, Google and their ilk. Dylan Curran provides an excellent summary here.
