... Religion is perishing not at the hands of science, as Horkheimer predicted, but rather at the hands of a superstition, a new magic: the power of the mind to materialize desires. Positive thinking is the new element religion has syncretized with in our countries. After achieving great success exposing the impossibility of surviving on a worker’s wages in Nickel and Dimed, US writer and activist Barbara Ehrenreich turned her energies to Smile or die: How positive thinking fooled America and the World. It is the most complete and penetrating study of the science?/industry?/religion? of positive thinking. ...  

Interesting view. Are we failing to face reality because we are caught up in the dreams of positive thinking?
