Psychologists have been following disturbing trends developing from a self help philosophy from the 1980’s called Transactional Analysis. TA is based upon a consciousness growth bestseller book entitled “I’m OK, You’re OK”. Written by Thomas A. Harris MD, it was a book whose primary message was to base all relationships on the premise that everyone is OK just the way they are without any changes, including the reader himself. The publication was a huge international hit offering a message of simple positivism to the world. Since that time many other individuals have altered that simple philosophy in their own ways, some good, some bad. Psychologists from the Institute To Make Everyone As Sane As Is Possible In a Screwy World have found the following disturbing deviations from the original ideas:
The Marine Corps- We’re OK, you are shit.
Woody Allen- I’m not OK and I’ll make a movie about it.
Hippies- Everyone is OK if you are high enough.
Vladimir Putin- I am the only one in this country who is OK. We have gulags for anyone else who thinks they are as OK as I am.
Republicans- We know we’re great, we just have a hard time convincing other people that they’re crap.
Democrats- We know that we are OK, but we don’t want to appear as arrogant as the Republicans, so we will just pretend to
Adolf Hitler- You are only OK if you are blond, blue eyed and Aryan, even though I am not.
Ann Coulter- You are only OK if you are a fire breathing conservative. Otherwise you are probably a wet noodle liberal.
Donald Trump- I’m OK, you’re fired!
George W. Bush- I’m OK, ain’t I?
Dick Cheney- I’m OK and unless you are a big oil man or someone in government get out of my way or I’ll run over you.
Dr. Phil- I’m OK, you’re not, but I’ll make you OK.
Naomi Campbell- I’m more OK than you will ever be.
Baptists- Nobody is OK and it is our goal in life to make sure you understand that.
The Taliban- If you have a beard you are OK, even women should have them. And you better have a burqua covering it up.
Paris Hilton- I’m OK because I’m hot!
Marie Antoinette- I’m OK, you can eat cake.
Psychiatrists- We want you to be OK, but not more OK than us.
Lindsay Lohan- I’ll be OK once I snort a little more of this cocaine.
