I dont really believe it. I think most psychiatrists, even though they de facto are terribly misguided and incredibly harmful, pursue and foster an image, both internally and externally, of benevolent and helpful expertise. They need technologies and innovations to sustain their illusion of toiling and glorious technicians,, which is why they play with whatever form the technology of the time can dress up the ‘treatments’. IMHO most of them are not evil, just delusional. They are just humans riddled with biases (like every human) pandering to a core identity and very profitable position. They play their role, the way they invent themselves, the way society let them dream up, in utter impunity, most of the time at the expense of the ‘patient’, who is then enslaved to whatever madness the biases and fantasies of the delusional pseudo healer sculpt the masquerade One could talk about theatrical slavery. Or Labour of delusion. How much ironic is it that the so called doctors of madness wallow in delusional slavery, which is the pathetic circumference of their rotten priesthood. But the truth is that it is a delusion. Psychiatrists are misguided, harmful, and above all , (worse than) useless.
