Not my problem ...

... since Freud has never impressed me: Who’s Your Daddy? (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

"Over time, Freud came to see that his patients were transferring feelings and hopes from other phases of their lives onto him." Let's assume this was true. How do you extrapolate from his relations with his patients and their attitude toward him to arrive at some general conclusion about human nature?

"Freud said we all seek [authoritative father] figures, in both political and personal life." Now I'm only one person, but that is still enough to call into question a universal proposition, and actually, I know perfectly well that I am not the only person who not only has never sought such, but has always been antipathetic to same.
