This piece certainly has some length but doesn’t really say much of anything. Most of us would be hard pressed to disagree with any of it but the straw man is the author’s twisted misrepresentation of criticisms of biological psychiatry – a fake argument. Mad in America purports to be critical of psychiatry but call me crazy essays like these that contradict themselves don’t really empower folks unless they believe being indoctrinated by professionals is the cure. Reading enough of this stuff will drug anyone into believing the status quo is irreversible because it’s simply overwhelming and complicated – especially for the broken minded. Maybe if we had the cell phone numbers of our congressmen we could make some changes.
