I am followed on Twitter by plenty of snake oil salespeople claiming to help instantly assuage my mental illness and all attendant issues. The most recent offer was the following:
If stress, anxiety and depression still plague your days, join my free Magic of Depression webinar for a life of passion, purpose & power.
Magic of Depression – WTF? I have a full life that includes passion, purpose and power. I realize a lot of us, perhaps everyone (me included), struggle with all three of those pursuits, but I doubt that this person’s Webinar can help me find fulfillment in any of these areas.
This sort of crackpot nonsense is only to make money for the purveyors of this stupid, cult-like garbage that often seems to speak to a part of us needing some soothing and TLC, but is really meant to make us more anxious and stressed out so we keep following these false “healers” and pay for their other offerings, which are never free.
