By including this public figure on this wiki, we are not necessarily implying they are incel (involuntarily celibate) or are in any way associated with incels. Furthermore, with regards to any actual incels listed on this wiki, inceldom is a life circumstance, not an insult or a movement/community.
Paul Maloney is an anti-neoliberal author and the leading critic of talk therapy: namely cognitive behavioral therapy and it's children (DBT etc). He wrote a well reviewed book called, The Therapy Industry: The Irresistible Rise of the Talking Cure, and Why It Doesn't Work. He generally holds a philosophy that self-described incels also hold.
Paul Maloney abides by a social-materialist psychology, a psychology that sees social relations and the external world as the most important determinants of mental health.
Incels also believe that social relations (such as monogamy rates, arranged partnerships, feminism, etc) and the external world are more important determinants of mental health than inheritable behaviour patterns such as confidence (potentially).
