Philosophy – “The Evil of the Hippocratic Oath” – 5/3/2021

“Welcome the tyranny as though you accept what is offered, without regard for who is taking.”

– Modern Romanticism

This Hippocratic Oath, which is a document referring to the confidentiality for the patient, respects the vocation, to nothing more. It is not the concern for the patient, though for the vocation of therapist, doctor, and even government, all alike. To offer secrets, of information to be kept in the hands of who is trusted, is to treat these sorts as never a threat.

For the patient, or simply the “helpless one” or “victim” to trust a government or rule, is to see them as not a threat. Though, would a government… or nurse, or doctor, or therapist ever trust their patients, clients, or helpless victims? No. It is because they view them as threats.

To know the truth is to see the other side’s secrets.

However, by the Hippocratic Oath, nothing is more comforting than a doctor lying their patient, to offer a smile that never returns a second time. It is unfamiliar, yet familiar, to ourselves. A smile, that is, that generates itself as more the concern for the profession, not the person being soothed. By the Hippocratic Oath, trust does not reside in the professional. By the Hippocratic Oath, we are blinded in our ignorance, to believe we are loved, when nothing could be more false.

Filling the void with the infinite amount, is not the same as placing what would remain, eternally kept.

For what trust is, it must be two-sided for there to be genuine human connection.

Though, upon what the Hippocratic Oath states, confidentiality is as predictable as the document, itself, being strict and never fragile. Professions as doctors, to the government becoming so vast, is where we seem to be vulnerable. As we are vulnerable around the doctor, for our trust in them, is how we seem to be becoming around a government, by the same one-sided dependence.

Again, would the government depend on its people? They would not, because they view us as a threat.

To take our rights, confiscate our information, without us knowing their truth, is much becoming of this Oath. We have no right to know what they understand. Though, they’ll know as much as possible, of ourselves, all because of our unconditional trust.

Philosophy – “The Sad Difference Between a Friend and Therapy” – 1/18/2021

“Who loves us? Who, besides those whose expectations for us are kept in the foresight of sameness? Love is that emotion. That emotion that tells a person that another should never improve, for they are ‘perfect as they are’.”

– Modern Romanticism

As a friend, we are here to tell our own that they are, in our eyes, a perfect person. For in our love, we say that. In our love to them, disappointment or the factor of “betrayal” would be the reaction, were there to be downfall. Though, would we have betrayed ourselves of our ability to protect, or is it simply the notion that this friend of ours has turned a different path of more importance than the friendship?

For instance, someone who craves addiction more than their friendship, might lose all their friends. Their loneliness might be the realization that material substances are not as valuable as a friendship. This intense feeling of loneliness might be what cures them of addiction, or to at least take the first step to that destination of being relieved.

The one universal difference between a friend and a therapist, is that a friend will offer you all the time in the world to speak at no cost, though a therapist will offer you a limited amount of time to speak at a cost attached. Perhaps to a troubled person, a therapist is more of a fitting match to their state, due to them understanding themselves as limited. In seeing something limited, like the therapist for what they offer, it is unlike in the perceived unlimited supply to perhaps an addiction, that compared to the objective infinity of love. Though, it was not love that became limited, of those former relationships. It was trust. That addict’s former friends lost the ability to trust, though the memory of them will not become erased. It will simply be a bitterness, until trust can be rebuilt off how they were before the addiction.

As a friend had expected their own to always remain the same, it was to this naivety that made change either unseen or unpaid of any attention to. If attention has not been paid, or this issue has simply been so hidden, then therapy may become the better fit over a friend. For that is because our reason to love, as a friend or even as a lover, is to always view them through the eyes of sameness. We see them, to wish them to remain as they are, for we tell them in our love that they are perfect, and thus, need no improvements.

The Most Pointless Question a Therapist can Ask

One is meant to come to a Therapist for an answer, not for a question. A mentally unstable individual lacks mental clarity. What is a Therapist, if not representing a leader? Therapists are meant to be like the leader, offering that route the mentally ill individual is so desperately desiring.

That question, which is, “What do you want to do?” As if the mentally ill individual has not asked themselves that question, at the very least, a million times over. As if such a person with an unstable mind came up with the answer, themselves. How does the probability increase itself, when someone else asks it? They know not what to do, and it is why they’ve come to a Therapist, to find an answer.

Should one go to a Therapist, expecting the work to be done by them for the mentally ill individual? No. Though, a seed should be planted for there to be the walk on the path. That seed should be set by the Therapist, being the person evidently paid to aid their patient.

Thus, they should do their job accordingly, and offer them an answer, a path. Show them, though do not do the work for the mentally ill.
