"The first stage of X is denial of X"

As in "The first stage of insanity is denial of insanity", or "the first stage of indoctrination is denial of indoctrination". For you smart cookies out there, basically the Kubler-Ross model.

So, is it true or false?

Clearly this phrase is deliberately designed to place subjects in a catch 22; either deny X and prove themselves of being X, or accept X and also prove themselves of X. It is a false dichotomy, and a huge presupposition on the part of the question that both choices lead to the same outcome, one that has not been proven sufficiently.

Would love to hear an argument for its truth though.
