Positive Thinking is for Corporatist Chumps. Except When It’s Not.

“The time for thinkers has come; and the time for revolutions, ecclesiastic and social, must come.” — Mary Baker Eddy, 1875

Critics of positive thinking, or New Thought, often dismiss mental metaphysics as a milquetoast philosophy that uses “happy thoughts” as a lame substitute for social action.
