But harming patients for profit violates the Hippocratic Oath, and is morally repugnant. The entire world deserves better than the insanity of giving such fraudulent and insane psychiatrists total control. The right of psychiatrists to force their toxic torture “treatments” onto innocent patients needs to end.

They’ll be talking again about lobotomies pretty soon, and the spinning chair treatment, and being tightly wrapped in an ice cold sheet and left to drip dry! And they’ve always got insulin comas to use as a treatment again. Enough is enough.
