Removing the Power Of Psychiatry

Dear Readers:

Here I go again with taking something from a comment section of a blog, and making a post from it! I know this is a little dicey since the AstraZeneca Legal team is going to go through this Blog with a fine tooth comb in an attempt to put me on trial instead of them.

I can only say, I am who I am, I don’t fear your personal attacks upon my character or past afflictions. I will trust in Justice even though I know intellectually that justice is a teetering scale that doesn’t always tip in the direction of truth, right, fact, or celebratory outcome. But it’s the best we have in a civilized society, and I look forward to my day in court before a jury of my peers.

So now I will try futilely to answer Mark’s question from the comment section of my last post here.

Dear Mark
PsychSurvivor 2.0:

To begin with you need to take those moose antlers off {laughing}.

Ok, that is a good start; but it will only keep you from being locked away at the funny farm where life is only wonderful if you can create your own world all day long.


On a more serious note:

Right out of the gate; we as patients, and those with a questioned mental constitution must accept responsibility for our life, future, and ultimate destiny. I believe from this point of discovery and strength we as a body of like mind and virtue can then step out and take on our responsibility as a community to end the suffering and create inclusion for all able to assimilate within a new boarder parameter of social humanity.

I try to believe as more of the truth is known (and I know all too well that psychiatry, entrenched other interest including many governmental entities, and Big Pharmaceutical are spending billions to make sure that truth comes out as twisted, vanilla coated, watered down, and obscure as possible in tangible and understandable results and message) we can achieve a equitable outcome.

We have to be the voice, the bellowing echo that rings from each mountain top to fertile valley below. It will be through are direct and earnest action taken without being shaken from our foundation or dislodged from real principles that must bring balance and rational dialogue to the public eye, to the public speakers lips, and finally to the indifferent deaf followers ears.It was not in all actuality too long ago that the same people that used to call us all crack pots, loon birds, and scientologist; are now finally starting to see the shell game for what it is, and how this supposed great mythological fix was nothing more or less a grand marketing ploy and scheme.

I hope the day will come again sooner than later, as it has done in the past when psychiatry, the drugging, and other undesirable treatment modalities; that finally society will wake up and measure them each on real science, and the lack of promised results that has never came to pass. Of course there will also be the lingering damage that will be seen in each sorrowful community for many generations to come as a witness to this tragedy and injustice propagated on the very least and also the very best of us in Human toll.

We each here in the Blogosphere information world, as in our normal everyday lives can take a small step toward that end. I have no illusions that it will take some time, much frustration and sleepless nights, and the untold efforts of the diligent. But just think for a moment how Furious Seasons and many others have started to shine the light into the darkness as surely the mainstream will and must start to see what really is going on and follow truth in do course.

I also see that only a few good men and women like the examples of Senator Grassley, Philip, and so many others that have put it all on the line to demand the truth be told and action be taken forcefully if necessary. Those solders of truth in these dark days and somberness of dreary nights embracing toil, tirelessly taking each battle being waged one step forth at a time. Holding to the memories of the maimed victims as shards of broken glass piercing their blood soaked hands with undying courage and lack of doubt that this war for the rights of humanity can be won.

It's the countless multitudes of once throw away human beings that are going to end this injustice. You are one of those towering beacon of lights shining forth though this foggy cloud of indifference Mark.

Our voice will be heard. History tells us it must be heard. Humanity tells us that it is the least of us that shall be crowned this achievement and a final place of restful contentment.

So what is it we do? We continue to do what we are doing; as we continue to push the envelope going forth as those with a good conscience, a righteous cause, and persevering faith always do. We call out the perpetrators and face them head on each and every day. We have to believe that this good will in time climb over great obstacles, triumph over greedy egotistic evil; even though this journey is obviously going to be a painful one, arduous in both scope and scale, and many times a grueling thankless task with little support or encouragement.

Yours Truly, Stan

Stan,

You hit the nail on the head again.

I don't think you're alone though. Those of us out here that can't or won't express ourselves as well as you, will continue to stand and cheer albiet on the side lines for now. You are walking the talk but don't ever feel like you are alone.

Thank you for your answer.

"It's the countless multitudes of once throw away human beings that are going to end this injustice. You are one of those towering beacon of lights shining forth though this foggy cloud of indifference Mark."

Thank you for the compliment.

I do also hope the end is in sight.
The jailors should only jail convicted criminals (judged by a jury, not an individual), and punished with the appropriate humane punishment.

Thank you for inspiring me, Stan.
I admire you.
