Is the rat too thin or too fat? Is the rat sleeping and exercising ?
Just before nine one one or nine eleven George Carlin asked for some excitement. He starts talking of it at 4 minutes 20 seconds in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKboodmEHTQ his dream of collapse is not happening.
Visible horrors of Willowbrook took 20 years to end . The invisible horror of psychiatric drugs will not stop until the planet kick humans ass. More Floods, Fires, Famines and Pestilence.
The elderly in Nursing Homes have no voting power , no financial power etc etc.
“Revisiting the atrocities that once consumed the halls of Willowbrook State School in Staten Island – WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT”
Sen. Robert Kennedy toured the grounds in 1965. Afterward, he described the horror he’d witnessed.Kennedy referred to Willowbrook as a “snake pit”
By 1986, only 250 residents still lived there; by September 1987, the last patients left the facility.
“if that violence was drug free.” People can be drug free, but they just quit psychiatric drugs, so are in withdrawal. No one blames the withdrawal from the psychiatric drugs a causative factor in crimes done when psychotic. A famous case in Canada is a man named Vince Li who had had previous experience with psychiatry and their drugs. He could not distinguish reality from imagination and killed – decapitated a person with a knife . https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Killing_of_Tim_McLean
The holy psychiatric drug can not do anything bad to a human beings brain and thoughts, when going on , or going off of them. Psychiatry is the worship of magical chemicals and all must worship their God.
How about the criminals that prescribe/force the legal drugs “that contribute to a psychotic episode”? Shouldn’t they go to jail? They made the decision to make the “patient” take drugs.
To measure damage you need a before electroshock testing, to gauge the after effects, and who does this pre testing? ( to show evidence of harm, it is against the interest of those making money from electroshock) The court is rigged in favour of the defendants.
The alcohol crashed the car, it wasn’t my fault. I can’t use that excuse? But i can say alcohol saved my life?
Regarding “Delusions”, I know who the delusional people are. The delusional are those that call a prison a hospital. The delusional think they are helping the “ill” who are being continually drugged (medicated).
No government or society should put people in prison BEFORE a crime has occurred.
That psychiatry has gotten away with, and continues to get away with calling drugs “medicine” is criminal.
You want a direct answer?
3 breakdowns, why did you have breakdowns? too much stress in the rat race? you MUST make money.
depression yes many people have depression and need to find a treatment.
see psychiatrist , should/shouldn’t do? I don’t see that anywhere
take drug, whatever is working for you , you do it
psychologist help , who said it was wrong?
Valium use on a continual basis is bad for the physical brain , like any drug used on a continual basis.
Cocaine alcohol Valium are drugs, you can take them if you wish.
cause of depression, are you kidding me? depression has been around since the dawn of time.
Giving to the poor, or poorer than you, used to make people feel good, otherwise known as charity. Giving people what they want https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charity_(practice)
comment at the article THAT IS A LIE
Kim Murphy Upper Arlington, Ohio
Why would someone with depression stop taking antidepressants? Are they cured? Of course not.
Medications such as Zoloft, in short, regulate seratonin. A shortage of seratonin causes depression. If you’ve not magically started regulating your seratonin production and reuptake on your own, your mood is going to be precisely what it was when you were prescribed the medication, if it was appropriately prescribed to start.
We don’t expect diabetics to wean themselves from insulin. This is no different. Self-tweaking meds is irresponsible and harmful.
They say the drug is a medicine. I could say cocaine is a medicine and I need a bit every day for my brain chemical imbalance.
They are justifying their drug use by believing and claiming it is science.
This is about drugs, not medicines. People have the right to like or dislike a drug.
One day they will be able to make a image of you naked , from your DNA. What will people do then? LOL
From the article “depends on infinite growth on a finite planet”. maybe the point.
You wrote ” So many take the meds ” . They are not meds. So many take the DRUGS and end up lobotomized.
What are the other animals on the planet doing? Choking on plastic and radioactive poison.
RE “why psychiatrist can’t oversee the consequences of their actions”
The psychiatrist believes themselves a HERO, saving the patient from the future. The psychiatrist also gets paid money.
RE”don’t want the pill because they are poison” The patient has to be smart enough to lie, which the drugs may prevent the ability to do so.
Rosenhan said the only thing he could say was ” i am sick and getting better”, as it was what his captors/jailers wanted to hear.
The SECOND non-existent impostor experiment
For this experiment, Rosenhan used a well-known research and teaching hospital, whose staff had heard of the results of the initial study but claimed that similar errors could not be made at their institution.
Rosenhan arranged with them that during a three month period, one or more pseudopatients would attempt to gain admission and the staff would rate every incoming patient as to the likelihood they were an impostor.
Out of 193 patients, 41 were considered to be impostors and a further 42 were considered suspect. In reality, Rosenhan had sent no pseudopatients and all patients suspected as impostors by the hospital staff were ordinary patients.
Ditto “The problem is, the drugs DO have adverse effects on the brain.” No one knows if or when the brain can heal from the drugs.
Arguing about the best drug is like asking which type of chain work best to control the prisoner? Plastic, Aluminum, copper , steel?
Great article and great effort to get the information out, that the psychiatric drugs can make people worse.
Another factor, choice with the success VS failure statistics .
In politics you have an electoral map for each government representative. Depending on how you cut the map up, you can get vastly different results.
In this study of first-episode psychiatry patients, the start of the population was “out of a pool of 1,606 first-episode patients” , then they kept cutting the successful outcomes down to support their point of view. Then called the manipulation science.
“28 patients who couldn’t be found or refused to be interviewed” Dead patients and if the “patient” does not participate, the researcher takes them out of the science, for not being in the army(following orders) or worshiping those that issue the treatments. This is obviously bias. Another example is http://www.progressnp.com/article/patients-experiences-attitudes-towards-ect/
“Sixty patients, who had completed at least one course of ECT during the study period, were identified, of which eight people were deceased (not related to ECT: either due to old age or physical ailments), 11 refused to take part, six could not be traced and five could not take part due to significant cognitive impairment. At the end, our final study sample constituted 30 patients.”
In genuine medicine, if the patient has cancer , the doctor has the real statistics on survivor rates. The doctor gives the patient the choice of going for a treatment for say a 50/50 odds of success.
But in psychiatry the “patient” is usually not given the choice in what ever the supposed ” science” they have to back up the efficacy of the drugs.
“we don’t know enough yet. ”
VNS similar to DBS
“How safe is your medical device? Even regulators don’t really know”
Dennis Fegan had a Vagus Nerve Stimulator (VNS) implanted in 2000.
“…. by 2006, he was repeatedly collapsing and losing consciousness. In July of that year he ended up in an ER after his parents found him passed out in his home.
According to Lenzer, doctors discovered that the VNS wasn’t stopping Fegan’s seizures: it was stopping his heart.
Doctors deactivated his VNS, but Fegan was never able to sue the manufacturer, Cyberonics, because a U.S Supreme Court ruling prevents patients from taking device-makers to court over FDA-approved devices.”
“They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you’re clever and they despise a fool

As bad behaviours used to be choices and by that reasoning sins. If the public did not like a specific sinner they stoned them( threw rocks) at the person . Then about 2000 years ago Jesus taught forgiveness.
Today , as bad behaviours may be resulting from the psychiatric drugs affecting the mind (paradox of drugging the present moment to prevent a possible bad future), the confidence trick is perfect. You learn from your mistakes, you do not take a magical pill to correct them. It is inherit in mankind to make mistakes.
benzo, as no such thing as psychotic molecule.
The trick is to not upset the naturally – normal balance in the first place. Prove there is a disease first.
RE” oil slick down the hill I’d been successfully climbing.”
How much is too much or too little? What impartial evidence do you have of disease? Like photographic proof?
You can’t put too much gas on a fire.
Yo can’t put too much cheese in a sandwich.
You can’t put too much water in a nuclear reactor. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JrIYR8jArk
You can’t give too much medication/drugs to a patient.
RE: Rename it “therapy”
Yes that is happening here. Where the precrime of psychiatric drugging and jail-hospital and freedom of thought collide.
Is it religion or is it mental illness?
(spoiler: he performed criminal actions)
Staff and a psychiatrist at l’Éclusier talked about his case. They decided Couture-Rouleau did not need to see a psychiatrist because the 24-year-old refused to believe he was sick. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/family-of-slain-quebec-soldier-condemns-incompetence-of-mental-health-workers-who-saw-killer-before-attack-1.4185158
In his report, Coroner André-H. Dandavino highlighted how Couture-Rouleau’s father tried in vain to get treatment for his 25-year-old son as he descended into mental illness. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/martin-couture-rouleau-psychiatrists-respond-1.4118498
You can’t see the paradox in your writing can you? If you are not sick you can not seek help(so you must be sick), you can not get attention you want ( who is paying?) Nightmares come from the unconscious mind , not a medical-physical illness, nightmare come froma fear or a guilty conscious that needs to be confronted, not drugged away.
RE”How to make psychiatry illegal”
The only way a psychiatrist can torture someone is if the psychiatrist has them in a prison, otherwise the person who does not like the “treatment” would run away.
“Is it to keep them quiet? Is it to keep them compliant? Is it a doctor who doesn’t know better? I think it is all of these reasons.’’
“Doesn’t know better?” To force or give so much drugs to some one to cause them to die is murder.
Shrinks can not prescribe any “medicine” then if they can not participate in torture.
Why the anesthesia before electroshock? Could the seizure and electricity be harmful to the body?
and anyone remember this
Treatment at Ontario mental health facility was ‘torture,’ judge rules
Trying to sell more drugs or trying to sell less drugs?
I love the camel cartoon with the multiple factors weighing down!
Regarding ““Less Psychiatry Means Less Shootings.”
In the article ” He was regularly taking medication for A.D.H.D. ”
What would they do for his ADHD without medication? Would he be responsible for his inattention? Could a doctor say ” No that’s not a medical issue, sorry” No the doctors would not, the doctors HAVE to treat their patients complaint.
As long as the public believes the psychiatric drugs are medicine , everything will continue. In God we trust. In drugs we trust.
Vince Li was probably made crazy by psychiatry before the crime. “The psychiatrist Stanley Yaren, who later examined Li, said Li was hospitalized in 2003 or 2004” crime date July 30, 2008.
RE:abolishing psychiatry: you cant abolish a religion. People willingly follow the religion of psychiatry for fear of themselves, their possible future actions. Removing psychiatry from the law is possible. No more insanity defenses.
Withdrawing from benzos I have had panic attacks.
How do you explain a first severe panic attack . A bad experience in the past No.1 , No.2 not enough gradual increase in training difficulty.
“….You must believe you are mentally ill or we can’t help you.” http://www.successfulschizophrenia.org/articles/dblbinds.html
Bible , because psychiatry IS a religion. You must believe the drugs are medicine , and that you need medicine. There are no psychotic molecules, virus or bacteria for an antipsychotic to affect.

The numbers of mentally ill conflict with the idea the psych drugs are working.”from 1987 to 2007, the number of adults on federal disability due to mental illness rose from 1.25 million to 4 million, begging this question: Could our drug-based paradigm of care be fueling this epidemic?” https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/mad-in-america/201102/disability-in-the-age-prozac
Those working for psychiatry will also have an inability to see the problem due to Cognitive dissonance. They say things like brain damage from psychiatric treatment is a GOOD thing for the patient.
“Needless annual heart tests” the amount of finding disease VS no disease has to be weighed. If it is you as the 1 in 1000 that is helped you do not think the test was needless.
Yes, Metallica a cure for depression. Get angry!
They got you either way. You don’t hear voices=you are an unfeeling sociopath /psychopath who is overconfident ( no imagination for empathy of others feelings), you do hear voices = you have some kind of mental illness that makes you dangerous, what if he/she listens to the voices?
A prescription for heavy metal ha ha ha. I love it! I was into Metal music when I was younger.
I loved the article.
With the success of deep brain implants for depression they want to try other illnesses.
“From December 2014, seven patients (57 percent women) underwent surgery (in four cases the target was the nucleus accumbens and in three the subgenual area). The most remarkable changes included a progressive improvement in all patients of the social isolation type symptoms and auditory hallucinations. Two patients were dropped off the randomization phase because they presented a noticeable worsening of the symptoms when the generator was switched off. One patient presented complications related to the surgery. The study is currently under analysis and collection of patient outcomes and will be finished in 2017 after one more case is recruited. “
the Simpsons clip has an image nearly identical to the cover photo of the depressed teen.
Was there a trial to weight the evidence of a crime? Then you get a punishment. In psychiatry jail/treatment if you get a trial the court takes the psychiatrist opinion as fact. The mentally ill don’t get a lawyer because they say it isn’t a prison, it is medicinal treatment. The prisoners/patients are receiving medicinal treatment.

That’s some really bad news. “Brain plasticity” was saying people can get better or recover back to their previous self.
Julia wrote “become a waste of time to read or comment on articles here” It is as if flies , butterflies, and grasshoppers are caught in a spiders web and are complaining about the web. To break free of the web is most wanted. Some want to transform into a spider like the one that caught them. Some assist the spiders in catching and keeping the various life forms in subservience to the spider.
You know what all the other living creatures are doing on the planet are doing? They are having offspring. Ducks are making baby ducks, geese making baby geese, beaver making baby beaver etc. Who is having offspring?
Psychiatry is a slow motion “euthanasia” instead of a fast and quick death.
Regarding “it is ridiculous to say that the Nazis would not have exterminated Jews without psychiatry.”
You will have to tell several authors who think differently.
Alessandra Colaianni,” A long shadow: Nazi doctors, moral vulnerability and contemporary medical culture”
“No one wanted to admit to what extent they profited under the system and how none of this could have happened without the direct complicity of the German medical establishment,” Dr. Pross said in a telephone interview. http://www.nytimes.com/1992/11/10/technology/exhibition-examines-scientists-complicity-in-nazi-era-atrocities.html?pagewanted=all
Rael D. Strous, M.D. “Psychiatric euthanasia institutions served as training centers for the Schutzstaffel (SS) who used the experience to construct larger killing centers (Auschwitz, Treblinka, etc.). The psychiatrist Dr. Imfried Eberl, Treblinka’s first commandant and the only physician to command a death camp, established the facility following his experience as superintendent of Brandenburg Psychiatry Hospital (2).” https://ajp.psychiatryonline.org/doi/full/10.1176/appi.ajp.163.1.27
You will commit a crime! So we must help you before you do.
The death of psychiatry starts with number 4 on the list.
4. State laws would be changed to eliminate all references to psychiatrists or their current legally defined functions.
All court cases would be judged on facts that have happened first, not the reason WHY they (what crime? ) happened first.
No one should be sentenced BEFORE they commit their crime they will do in the future.

Thank you Dr Breggin for the article.
This was on “the doctors” TV show today. As these doctors believe in the lie , that the psych drugs are in fact medicine, they are behind the tracking pill and support its use in the mentally ill. https://www.thedoctorstv.com/videos/can-a-pill-track-if-you-are-taking-your-meds
How do we psychiatric survivors speak-respond to such brain washing?
They have a religious zeal for “medication adherence”. What if it is not medication the doctor is prescribing?
“positive outcomes”? Schizophrenia Positive Symptoms
Positive symptoms in schizophrenia refer to an excess or distortion or normal function. Positive symptoms are the ones most typically associated with schizophrenia or psychosis.
From the article “I didn’t know who to turn to.”
What religion to turn to? The “Hare Krishna movement” or the religion of magical chemicals ( chem. lobotomies)?
Thank you for your efforts at introducing science to psychiatry.
My favorite drug. Any adult should not have to get a prescription from a doctor, like the drug alcohol.
But no one can grow this or brew this drug on their property, so those that manufacture it can control it.
War on Drugs vs The Medical Monopolization of Drugs – Psychiatrist Thomas Szasz
In adolescence , in males there is a 30 times increase of testosterone. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25151053
Like all animals that compete for females to have offspring, the male is supposed to show how smart, strong or skilled they are with this increase.
If the King(father) and Queen(mother) believe the (lies of the) quacks they will drug their child into following orders with horrible results.
Can’t overtly physically punish the children for wrong behavior, we have to invisibly punish with drugs (drugs called medicine).
253 prescriptions filled for every 1,000 youth under 18.
In 2017, CHEO experienced a jump of 69 per cent in the number of young people needing mental health services, according to Pajer. The actual numbers will soon be released in CHEO’s year-end update.
That is great!
Seconded. stop calling the drugs ” medicine”.
Unless they want to come to a consensus on which chains are best for the dog. Are aluminum chains better or steel chains better for the dog?
If the drug dealer is not selling his drugs to persons A, B, and C , what is his incentive to find and report on the A, B, and C persons? The drug dealer has persons D to Z to sell his drugs to.
If the drug dealer finds people are not enjoying his drugs he will be disheartened and sad.
It is a conflict of interest to find out how people/patients recover, when you are selling drugs(medications for mental illness) for life.
“empower patients” this is a lie. The whole point of the drugs is to dis-empower the patient, to make the person compliant and malleable. They are selling a religion of magical chemicals and do not want to find out the truth, that there are no brain chemical imbalances for drugs to correct.
Sorry Dr. Scott Shannon, another critical comment, as mostly the angry will be motivated to respond, not the happy.
If everyone (adult) is a willing participant in a MDMA treatment, caveat emptor, obviously that is fine.
However , Psychiatry is known to jail people and force them against their will to be treated. Though forced MDMA would likely be better for a persons brain function and memories than a session of ten or so Electroshocks prescribed-forced on the severely saddened.
You write ” a chemical molecule will finally bury the chemical imbalance theory” and “we have growing evidence that antipsychotic medication damages the frontal lobes of the brain”
Without the chemical imbalance theory for schizophrenia the psychiatrist has no justification for “medicating”(poisoning) their ill patients with antipsychotics, so psychiatry can not bury the imbalance theory.
There is no police force, no internal affairs for psychiatry.
With no body of oversight to enforce rules , like the Nuremberg code “Required is the voluntary, well-informed, understanding consent of the human subject in a full legal capacity.” what person has ever been charged? Psychiatry will do whatever it wants as it answers to no one.
Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman broke the Nuremberg code and no one charges him, just like when Bernard Madoff was allowed to continue his scheme with Harry Markopolos’s criticism. http://content.time.com/time/business/article/0,8599,1877181,00.html

I wish there was a real test for psychosis.
George Carlin said he was angry , the rich and the elite call the poor persons anger “psychosis” for not accepting the shick they are forced to eat, smell and handle. Not following orders? you are psychotic.
Higher the human density, the higher the rate of anger? You are driving me crazy!

Regarding “I knew a man in a group home who kept yelling at his voices, “F___ you, XXXXs!”
The question you have to ask is “Was he like this before psychiatry, before psychiatric drugs had affected his brain?” more and more drugs is not the solution.
From living in the noisy city I too can yell “F___ you, XXXXs!” but if I am in the silence and serenity of land that is outside the city I feel much better.
If I had a disease like cancer that was aggravated and stimulated to grow when living in the city , doctors would recommend leaving the city. But in psychiatry the living situation (environment) of the “patient” is ignored.
What is aggravating and stimulating some ones “mental illness”? I would say noise pollution of the industrialized city.

I am sorry you lost your daughter. The distinction between drug and medicine(medication) must be known.
I don’t know what this comment is doing here Fiachra. There needs to be more of an explanation.
“as I said before, I would probably be dead years ago.”
Whose hand would have done it?
“In psychiatry, however, one set of rules is used to explain sane behavior and another set of rules is used to explain insane behavior: sane behavior is attributed to reasons (choices), insane behavior to causes (diseases).” http://www.academyanalyticarts.org/szasz-mental-illness
Medicine is for legitimate disease. You take a drug that damages the higher brain functions, where a persons subconscious mind lives. Bad thoughts and bad feelings used to be attributed to sins, as in the choice to think bad thoughts of suicide. If you don’t control your thoughts who does?
You obviously have never experienced torture from mental health professionals, like I have for the fictional illness of “schizophrenia”.
Have you been tied to a gurney? Been poisoned to feel an insatiable thirst, then been denied water for your third? Jailed without trial on the presumption of guilt of future crime?
schizophrenia is an iatrogenic illness. I am a perfect example of it.
Brainwashing is what happens when they first hospitalize/jail the mentally ill patient, for the several months of ” treatment”.
When given the stigma of a “serious mental illness” hope is lost. With no hope the person does not look after themselves for a potential mate ( wife/husband) and the psychiatric drugs make and keep the ” patient” stupid. Stupid enough to follow orders.

Q “How long will it take ?” When they admit the psychiatric drugs are not medicine, which is never.
“All participants with schizophrenia were currently prescribed psychiatric medication”, no schizophrenic patients undrugged?
Those in authority call the drugs medicine, then the patients can not be deprived of a medicine. My third reference at the bottom of this comment “Ho acknowledges that his study is marred by the lack of a placebo control group — for ethical reasons, patients cannot be deprived of the medications they need”
“Many large studies comparing participants with schizophrenia to control subjects have confirmed significant neurocognitive deficits, with individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia performing about one standard deviation below the norm.”
All the schizophrenics must be geniuses because of only a one point drop in IQ from the psychiatric drugs.

Trying to force people to respond the “correct” way, instead of reasoning with people and asking what they think. Since 1946 trying to force the brain. http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.3181/00379727-63-15650
“the public has a right to be safe.” Yes , if a person is a proven criminal perhaps the current sentencing time is too short?
Otherwise society should not put people in jail BEFORE they commit their crime.
society should not put people on drugs (called medicine) BEFORE they commit their crime, as the drugs usually increase the odds of crime occurring. The drugs damage the brain, they do not “help” it.
As the people believe the drugs are medicine and not drugs, I think more medicine will be prescribed or forcefully issued.
Only when everyone knows psychiatry prescribes drugs, not medicines, might some kind of sanity occur.
A mathematician is taking his written exam to become a firefighter.
The second to last question is: you come to a burning building, what do you do?
Put the fire out, he answers.
The last question is,”You come to a building you’ve been called to, but it’s not on fire, what do you do?”
Set it on fire, he answers.
Later, the examiner calls him in to ask about that last answer. Why would you set it on fire?
Because, says the mathematician, then it’s reduced to a problem I know how to solve.
I think you are smart enough to carry the analogy over to psychiatry and a patient they have to treat.
Setting the building/patient on fire/ forcing drugs on them ( a physically healthy person), because then the situation is reduced to a problem they have been trained to solve.
Tyrants never give up their power voluntarily.
From a book of the year 2010 on the seizure in electroshock.
I will just state the violation of someones mind-brain with involuntary electroshock is wrong.
Supposed doctors induce a seizure on the brain.
Voluntary VS involuntary electroshock patient is the critical point here, as patients did seek “paroxysms” .
From 1953 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/13179226
Today they directly “stimulate” the brain with electricity (instead of stimulating the genitals, nerves in genitals give sensation to the brain) , and then the “medicinal” treatment can be applied to both male and female “patients” in the guise of science.
The foundation is that people believe the psychiatric drugs are medicine, and they do. Bad behaviour is not a choice but something to be “corrected” by magical chemicals.
Who ever has the gold/money makes the rules. If you have a source of gold/money from providing a service, both the provider and the person/company paying want the deal to continue.
If you are not causing trouble then those in authority will/would have no reason to force a court ordered depot injection or use these new smart pills that tell if the criminal-who-isnt-acriminal has consumed them.
In the big picture of humans on the planet.
Once women have the knowledge and access to inexpensive birth control they tend not to have children. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Total_fertility_rate#United_States
In Canada , my country, we have a 1.6 rate birth rate , where we would need a number closer 2 to equal out births and deaths . https://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/11-630-x/11-630-x2014002-eng.htm
As psychiatry has successfully converted the act of sinning ( all humans are imperfect/ make mistakes/ basically animals: as in: we need to breath, eat, and sleep like any animal) into psychiatric disease, psychiatry will never run out of new clients to treat.
IMO the only solution to forced drugging is that psychiatry has to be exposed as a religion. There are no brain chemical imbalances . There is no psychotic molecule, virus or bacteria for an antipsychotic to affect.
It is all about following orders from those who have the gold/money.
Make them prove you are not following orders.
Psychiatry’s diagnostic criteria is the same as religions diagnostic criteria, where religion has vices and virtues defined. Psychiatry sells drugs for its judgements of disease, in religion the sinner/patient might give money to the church to try to find forgiveness/atonement.
Psychiatry writes your sins down on paper never to be forgotten, while in religion it is up to the individual to remember or not remember their failings . Patients have to make a request for their psychiatry files, not given information, they have to figure out what is “wrong” on their own while the “doctor” watches and laughs.
That 70’s Show – Eric and Donna’s Revenge
Eric and Donna are still in the basement
KELSO (coming down the stairs): Okay, you guys. That was a wicked burn. It had all the elements: You didn’t see it coming, parts of it really hurt…
ERIC: Well, Kelso, I’m glad you enjoyed it.
KELSO: Oh, I did (2:34 EATS ANOTHER DRUGGED BROWNIE) I got my eye on you two. You’re not gonna burn me like that again.
DONNA: I love our friends.
ERIC: Me too.
The character Kelso at the end of this is the average patient on psychiatric drugs. The doctor keeps prescribing the drugs and laughing.
“…a family member or friend has a more “objective” understanding of the effects of psychotropic drugs.” they (family/friend) don’t have to take the drugs/ do not know the effects of the drugs, so would rather have the angry person drugged.
