The Freudian error

It is yet another victory for the Self-Esteemists. I often wonder what modern history would look like without that disastrous Freudian idea that low self-esteem is objectively bad and high self-esteem objectively good.

I wonder what would happen if we were not always so busy trying to make everyone feel good about themselves and instead encouraging people to be worth feeling good about. The entire gay rights movement, and much of the third-wave feminist movement, is the bastard child of this Freudian error. 

There is no point in feeling good about yourself unless you have a reason to.
