Jim Gottstein writes in Pharmalot about developments in the mental health rights field, how pharma has contributed (positively or negatively), and how the upcoming election may influence that environment.
Re: Jim’s cooments about the lack of support from the ACLU
I’ve heard the same from David Oaks…
Anyone waiting on the ACLU or any other liberal group is in for a long, LONG wait.
Liberalism is the problem, not the solution when it comes to making sure Constitutional rights are upheld for folks who have been diagnosed with a “severe mental illness.”
Libertarian thought, people who respect the Constitution.. these are our allies in this fight.
And sadly, we’ve failed to realize this so far.
