me+ME: Just a few relevant links for those who can think
I am still tired (let's say) of rather a lot of the prose and of the average level of thought on Phoenix Rising - and then I can't even read the mecfs-forum aka "the forum of the crazies", because I have been denied access to it since July 2010. So that's why there was no Nederlog the last few days.

The first and second
are, in reverse order, one of the few useful theories of modern
psychology-as-a-science and the facts it was based on, viz. what True

superstition to mainstream science.
But it won't help, alas, except in a few cases:
Originally I had intended to write some more, in a somewhat sarcastic vein, but then I have been asked not to, and I won't, because it probably won't help.
Here is Cromwell, in 1650 (I have also read other versions, in more modern English)
The link in the
quote is to Erv's blog of March this year.
P.S. Corrections, if any are necessary, have to be made later.
As to ME/CFS (that I prefer to call ME):
Short descriptions of the above:
1. Ten reasons why ME/CFS is a real disease by a professor of medicine of Harvard.
2. Long essay by a professor emeritus of medical chemistry about maltreatment of ME.
3. Explanation of what's happening around ME by an investigative journalist.
4. Report to Canadian Government on ME, by many medical experts.
5. Advice to psychiatrist by a psychiatrist who understands ME is an organic disease
6. English mathematical genius on one's responsibilities in the matter of one's beliefs:
7. A space-
and computer-scientist takes a look at psychology.
