In spite of the growing mass of evidence against psychology, it has been embraced as the new truth and new hope. Such public trust has given psychologists enormous power. It is frightening to see where they would like to take society. Leading psychologists have suggested that “parents be licensed to have children only upon demonstrating a sound understanding…of truths dispensed by psychologists” and that political and military leaders should be given psychological tests to make certain they don’t harbor the fundamentalist belief that Armageddon is inevitable. In 1971 the president of the American Psychological Association proposed that psychologists administer behavior modification drugs to civil and military leaders to reverse their aggression impulses.
