Whether we like it or not, we need to
recognize the Republicans are very
good at pressing the buttons of the
masses, and the Democrats don't
seem to know that there are buttons.

>>But, as I 
said before, I think that psychoanalysis is 
making a comeback.  And so is Siggy Freud.<<

--Possibly true. In arguments over whether some
"patriarch" (Freud, Jung, etc) is good or evil, a lot
of information goes ignored, and eventually the
information wants to be heard. There is a huge amount
of wisdom in psychology, and when merged with
neurology it has staying power.

 At the moment there is still a popular feeling that
psychology is for "elites". Which is odd, because so
many of the people who loudly denounce "elites" make
elitist statements themselves. Projection is rampant,
and it would be nice if people understood how it
works. And, regardless of what people think of
psychology, it is a major influence on media,
including politics. If the public doesn't learn how
their minds work, someone else will, and they'll use
that leverage for profit.
