- Excerpt -

Thus the overall thesis of my book in three words or less is that Domination is Abomination. In three words or more, oppression is achieved through domination of the body, mind and spirit; freedom is achieved through their liberation (see below). Furthermore, the causes of trauma in this society are not psychological as much as they are political. The effects, however, are often psychological. That is, the main cause of the majority of psychological illnesses in this world is the global social order of white supremacist, capitalist, sexist, heterosexist, imperialist, patriarchal domination and political oppression of women, minorities, and the poor. We need a new social order to replace the Patriarchal (Dis)Order. That is, we need to establish a new social order based not on hierarchy and domination, but on egalitarianism and equal opportunity -- and we must achieve this through social reform and benevolent revolution. The present social order must be overthrown. Only then will the main causes of trauma truly be eliminated and will mental health truly be conceived and achieved.
