History of Psychiatry

Question: How do you handle a disobedient child of 10 or 11 years old?
Answer from a survivor of Psychiatry: "They would plunge our heads into ice-cold water if we did something wrong,"

In an interview last year, Tom Cruise told Matt Lauer that he, Matt, didn't know the history of psychiatry and that if he did he would have a different viewpoint on the subject. Mr. Cruise was totally correct and just to prove it here is a horror story from the recent past: Up to 50,000 innocent children may have died or disappeared in Quebec's psychiatric institutions Survivors demand justice

The Dangers of Antidepressant Drugs

This article is a good reference on the dangers of antidepressant drugs such as Paxil, Prozac, Zoloft, etc. These drugs are given out mainly by medical doctors who have no clue about how dangerous they are. The article has many links to related articles which expose lies by Eli Lilly, FDA negligence and more. However, I want to point out one big error in the article - linking brain chemistry to depression. There are no physical tests that prove there is such a thing as a chemical imbalance. None, zero, nil, naught, nothing, not-even-one. There are plenty of physical tests that show malfunctions of various organs (especially the thyroid) can cause the symptoms that are called "depression". If your body is not working properly and has no energy because your thyroid is malfunctioning then it's not surprising you're going to feel "depressed". So with that one caveat in mind here is the article: Experts say antidepressant drugs cause suicides instead of preventing them

"We know how to destroy people. It's what we do. We do it without creating liability. That's our specialty."

"We know how to destroy people. It's what we do. We do it without creating liability. That's our specialty." So said a reporter caught red-handed attempting to extort money for "protecting" a billionaire from adverse press. The best way to destroy freedom of the press and freedom of speech is to abuse those freedoms to such an extent that the freedoms are seen as something negative and are taken away.

So, first, demand accuracy of the press and second, carefully evaluate what you read in the media.

Truth in Reporting - The Ethics of the Press

A New York Post gossip writer was caught red-handed trying to extort money, an investment in his clothing line, gossip about other celebrities and jobs for friends and their wives from a New York billionaire. The writer would "protect" the billionaire by preventing fabricated gossip from being written about him in exchange for all these things. He even laid out "levels of protection". Luckily the billionaire was no wimp, contacted the FBI and videotaped the meetings: The billionaire, the Post and the $220G shakedown.

So here we have another story about a reporter printing inaccurate stories, this time as a means of extortion. You've probably seen quite a few stories over the past couple of years about reporters making up stories or editing photographs to make themselves look good. The moral of the story? Don't blindly believe what you read in the press, always think for yourself.
