This Country isn’t the Problem – You Are

We use the term mental illness in several ways. There is the clinical way and then there is the common everyday way. The latter is where we all know something isn't quite right with a person's thinking but they seem to otherwise function in society.

Is ‘Transgenderism’ Mass Hysteria?

The perspective discussed in this article is that the trans gender issue has become a sort of shared delusion. It gets into the minds of people and they consider it to be true and that particular consideration is all they require. People believe all sorts of things that aren't true.
