This is something that must be repeated in MIA. The ‘critical psychiatry’ implies that there is a system somewhat elaborate enough to be warranted criticisms and benevolent enough to be corrected instead of being simply uprooted. The blunt truth is that psychiatry, for all its existence, never ceased to be a crude and ignorant crook that people enabled because of the various illusions and benefits they get from it. Its not a modern and flawed cathedral, and never ceased to be a grotesque hut of horrors. It is sad and even scandalous that so many ‘critics’ make it, willingly or not, more respectable that it is. Psychiatry, at its core paradigm and effect, is just a turd. On a side not, this article sadly missed the opportunities of citing drugs as a category. There is no advance since the early XX century barbiturates, or even opium. Thats the proportion of the turd.
