People act against other people? Much to be dismayed about here.

Much to be dismayed about. Dr Mate implies that people are justified in "acting against" people with ADD's self-rejection, but, it can be argued that it is people's acting against others that brings about self-rejection. We have enough science to show that SOME people can handle such things, but No science to show that ALL people can handle anything. This is the nonsense of our modern psychology and therapy thinking. The thinking may be desirable to most, but is not fact based.
I find it astonishing that Dr Mate would seemingly support the idea that some can legitimately act against others' self-rejection, given that clearing the world of self-rejecting people was the goal of the Nazis. It is a fact that Hitler's initial solution was to clear the streets of homeless people, Veterans with PTSD, autistic people, mentally disabled people and everyone else who needed a little kindness to make it through the day. People in Nazi Germany didn't want to help anyone but themselves. Their final solution was (obviously) designed to get the lessons of the Bible out of our collective teachings by killing off the people who wrote the Old Testament because it teaches us that it is morally wrong to kill off the disabled and self-rejecting. This perpetuating of hatred towards those who may be lost is what is at hand here. There is a bit of the blame the victim here, which takes us back to the thinking of 1930s Germany.
