    I knew it was just a matter of time before the liberal psychiatrists came out with this declaration.

    Just because you are paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you.

    My Mother has long since passed away but I am sure she is smiling because she always said there was something wrong with me. She was the poster child for go along get along. I was a little different in that I asked why before doing something.

    I read an article years back that stated these guys had the highest suicide rate in the U.S., true or not I don't know but I do know they do a lot of damage perscribing mind altering drugs. Another comment by a shrink on the national news said the one thing these mass shootings have in common is the perps were in treatment. Some things I will conform to and some things I won't, so I guess that makes me a little crazy,, huh?

    I have marched to the beat of a different drummer most of my life. I see no reason to change now.
    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.
    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    Wow, that's a bad article. It's certainly targeting a subset of society, hoping that they'll just believe without further introspection.

    That said, in my experience

    “Psychiatric incarceration of mentally healthy people is uniformly understood to be a particularly pernicious form of repression, because it uses the powerful modalities of medicine as tools of punishment, and it compounds a deep affront to human rights with deception and fraud,”

    Can be somewhat true. You quickly run into areas of authority, where no one feels qualified or authorized to override a psychiatrist who's committed someone inappropriately. Take it before a judge? He has no idea.

    But, that said, people want crazies off the street. The only solution is proper diagnostics and treatment. Some people, though, don't really mind if the police just abuse the crazies instead.
    The solution to this is to fund the discovery of a cure. It also reduces the total amount of family that has to go through it.

    Yup.

    Unsurprising, but entirely chilling. The slope's getting a bit slipperier. Watch where ya step.



    We're seeing this similar sort of thinking in the grade schools, with kids. Kids who question authority or the status quo can all too easily get branded trouble-makers and disciplined as the ones causing disruption and disorder, despite the heavy-handed handling of Q&A being the disorder.
