Therapy ... by Prada

Who better to capture the essence of psychoanalytic therapy than Roman Polanski. And, who better to present it than the house of Prada. The clip stars Helena Bonham Carter and Ben Kingsley. Obviously, it affirms and confirms everything I have been saying about the accursed discipline.

As silly as that ad is, it's high art considering the state of our culture:

And the ad is by Roman Polanski who has his own history of degenerate behavior. The pornification of the culture is simply the latest sign of its degradation. One must feel some pity for the children who are being exposed to this. And one wonders why this is not child abuse. One girl certainly suggested that the experience was traumatic. Good-bye to childhood.

Here is more from 2010.

What amuses(as well as repulses) me is that the industry insists that it is helping kids to be themselves. Really? Imitating every trashy slutty fashion in teen magazines is being oneself?

And then the parents. They seem to be living their 'fountain of youth' fantasy through their kids. The madonna-ization of parenting, especially mothering, all the more worrying because so many mothers are single-mothers.

Worse, this nonsense is going global.

As the old saying goes, this is not going to end well.

Who would be surprised at Polanski's product? PRADA is as culpable as he.
