Quotes from the article:
"Modern psychiatry is not about counseling and empowering people. It's about controlling and suppressing them, and that's a dismal affair for patients and doctors alike. The armed forces have been taken in by the false claims of modern psychiatry."
"...being an ordinary psychiatrist is deadly depressing. Psychiatrists routinely commit spiritual murder by disregarding and suppressing their patients' feelings and even their cognitive functions, making it impossible for them to conquer to their emotional struggles. It's no wonder my colleagues have such high suicide and drug addiction rates."
Dr.Peter Breggin, Psychiatrist
Of course any time violence is suspected as it relates to any so called Mental Health diagnosis or practitioner in this stated case; the debate rages about access to guns and those deemed insane or unstable.
A satirical commenter on Furious Seasons blog
had an interesting take on this topic I would like to share here with everyone.
I would like to thank Just-A-Redneck for their thoughtful and enlightening commentary on this particular subject matter.
OK, all those guns are all spanking clean, locked, and loaded; my delusion of safety is sitting quite nicely as if a brilliant hallucination of Pink Flamingo's and Lolly-Pops.
I can finally breathe a welcome sigh of relief this morning.
I now have the time to give this a little more thought preponderance.
In light of those recent events @ MGH; where the patient attacked the psychiatrist with a knife, and that story of a psychiatrist that lost it at an army base. I may have to reconsider my position on this complete topic.
Because we as a society must maintain the illusion and delusion of safety (please people, take your pills whatever they are).
All people predisposed to genetically passed on mental thought processes, or have been determined to suffer from the effects of a lifelong incurable biological diseases of the brain will be banned from owning or using the following items effective as soon as we scare enough people into believing you and those crazy people are too dangerous to trust with the aforementioned items.
Knifes - obviously these are dangerous weapons capable of inflicting great bodily injury up to and including death. (Those crazy people can cut their meat with their teeth damn it)
Matches, Lighters, or access to combustible or flammable liquids of any kind - I would think the danger here is quite obvious without going into all the burnt flesh details. (Even "Smokey the Bear" knows crazy people should not play with matches; plus hard liquor does not mix well with your happy pills people).
Cars, trucks and other forms of deemed transportation vehicles or devices capable of being used as ramming or projectiles for the intended purpose of causing harm or injury. (Crazy people need to walk more anywise, it's therapeutic and keeps the weight gain down from those miracle drugs we have forced them all to take; plus public transportation is a good place to meet and exchange ideas with other considered crazy people, almost like a real version of an online dating service)
Hands, arms, legs, or heads - We all should know the grievous harm a well placed punch, kick, choke hold, or head butt can inflict - (though surgical removal of the aforementioned items would be preferred; restraints, fluffy and soft neon painted helmets, three sizes too small pants, and other deemed necessary items can be utilized in place of decapitation)
Thought and mind control - we can't be too careful with these crazy creeps ability to infest the thoughts and actions of the elite “Normals”; so since we have the means, ability, and technology available; we will place "computer chips" in the brains/skulls of all those deemed crazy or may have a propensity to lean toward or to develop craziness sometime during their living existence using this advanced technology to track their every move and thought.
WOW! I don't know about you out there reading this ranting babble; but I'm feeling a whole lot safer already.
Now I just need to get that buddy pal Fuller T. on the line with my change of heart; while plotting how we are going to accomplish our goals of total and complete control of the human race.
I'm almost sure big pharma will kick in and throw a few dollars are way in this courageous effort for the betterment of all humanity; not to mention the profitability of such an endeavor in future and current sales.
I hope you all wish me luck pro-suing this new mission and manifest destiny track.
I would like at this time to thank each of you here in advance anywho.Posted by: Just-A-Redneck at November 9, 2009 09:20 AM
With a rebuttal statement in holding to the time honored tradition of presenting apposing viewpoints and other totally absurd blather.
I will post this video interview with the renowned Journalist and author Robert Whitaker as food for thought. Though is may not make us feel safer; it sure does sound rational and makes much more sense considering the modern medical drugging modality does not work, has failed us completely, and leads society down a road littered with a false sense of security and optimism.
After the tremendous, thunderous, and enthusiastic response to this particular post from my dedicated readers! I have not only considered the wise recommendations to extend the items that must be removed from those "crazies" to include teeth, rope, shoe laces, and any item that could possibly be construed as having or even be imagined within the realm of Harry-Potterish conception or interpretation as dangerous or look either suspect or strange.
I will now allow the debate to continue on with this extended video version here; please join into the conversation at any time you feel inspired to do so.
