    Cat, it sounds like what you are saying is that anyone who doesn’t go along with Capitalism and the Middle-Class Family is crazy, and so they should be sent to a psychiatrist and put on drugs.

    I think the difficulty with most liberals is that they are not liberal enough. That is why I am not really a liberal, I am a radical.

    Anyway, people need to stand up for themselves and for children and stop the drugging. There are places we could be acting.

    Cat, so are you saying that anyone who doesn’t support Capitalism and the Middle-Class Family is crazy and needs to be put on psych meds?

    So most people just respond to power, not to rational argumentation.

    So if people see that psychiatrists are subjected to consequence, then they will oppose it. But so long as psychiatrists have power, most people will support them.

    Firestarter, I am very sorry over what happened to you. We need to organize and start taking actions.

    Venezuela has its difficulties.

    But here in the US today we have people living under bridges and in and out of jails and the psychiatric system. What do you think causes this?

    I say it is Capitalism and the middle-class family.

    Most of the stuff you are posting suffers from the fallacy of false cause. You are showing things, and saying that these things are caused by socialism or capitalism, when this is not so.

    Lots of people right now going into psychotherapy or psychiatry, convinced that they have something wrong with them. What do you think causes this? I say it is Capitalism and the middle-class family.

    For many, the choices supposedly available in our free market society, are meaningless, non-existent, illusory.

    Mr. Cat, do you think some of us deserve to be in psychiatric care, or need psychotherapy?

    Mr. Cat, you seem to have signed on to the basic ideas which underlie the Psychiatric System, that there are some who are not really well adapted or socially fit. You are siding against the outcasts, and with the oppressors.

    Political action is a very good way to educate people. It will reach people not met by a board like this.

    Discrediting psychotherapy and closing down a few of its practitioners ( without claiming malpractice or any illegality other than fraud ) goes a long way towards changing how people think, and towards gaining credibility for other actions. Its just the basic line crossing, showing that you are not afraid of people, or of lawsuits.

    So long as the idea that someone, “needs therapy” is credible, then we will always have forced psychiatry and drugs being passed out in large volume, and those of us who are the outcasts ( psych system survivors and not ) will remain outcasts.

    People who do not have a legitimated familial socio public identity still remain on the margins, and we will continue to until we take some confrontational and forceful actions and show that the premises underlying psychotherapy are just completely bogus.

    There must be no appeal to pity or accommodation in this.

    No Frank, you don’t seem to understand what I am saying, but even more, you don’t seem to understand what your own positions are. And so you keep making this go in circles.

    I have made it clear that I have no interest in outlawing psychotherapy, and this is because it is a form of free speech.

    But I do want to go after the licensing, and I do what to put some psychotherapists out of business, and without claiming malpractice. The means for doing this is simply exposure.

    I have closed other types of retail businesses down. Not that difficult.

    The problem with psychotherapy is similar to the problem with religion, they put out doctrines which keep people stupid and powerless. But you still can’t outlaw either of them. But it will be easier to tar and feather psychotherapy than it would be religion.

    Forced treatment is a big problem, it is totally unethical and inexcusable. It should be severely punished. I’ve never taken any softer position about it. I don’t see much reason to talk about it though, because that would take away time from sidewalk actions needed to put an end to it.

    But I also look at some other issues, like why we have such things, what are the underlying beliefs which legitimate it and what should be done about this.

    What do you think lands someone in psychotherapy or the psychiatric system?

    I say it is because they are not complying with the dictates of Capitalism and the Middle-Class Family.

    And then once so broken down and stigmatized, very hard for them to ever get back the chance in life which they might have had. Need to act to change this.

    Are you concerned that CPS is going to come visit you? Visit one of your relatives?
