Why do people insist that any new idea publicly espoused is impossible without the person who is the first to bring up the new idea. Idolatry. You do understand that when you say “without him bla bla” you are idolizing him. If you disagree, you did use the word “never”. Or were you just exaggerating? Szasz, as far as I can tell, is calling bluff on “mental illness”, in line with Hitler’s eugenics of the 30’s.
