Warning !
Psychiatrists are completely mad

Sick people suffering Psychiatropathy
They see fools everywhere but heal few,
massively destroy lives for industrial profit.
Since they managed Nazi camps they did not change.
Incredible ? What can stop them if you won't believe it ?


Why do so many people assume that psychiatry is proper science ?

Because they are usually not informed of how psychiatrists would see and treat them if they stumbled on them.
And, by the same kind of social conditioning described in the tale of the Emperor's New Clothes : as institutions are assumed to represent science, and any disbelief in psychiatry is diagnosed as pathological and needs urgent treatment...

Ok, SOMETIMES there are people who were really helped by psychiatry. Well, so what ? So many people "witness the truth" of something that changed their life for the better, be it Christianity, Mormonism, Scientology, or any other religion or sect. Anything is possible. This does not make any of these a science, as the positive (fortunate) aspect of a personal experience is no true indication of wisdom or universality of the path followed that "should" be applicable and helpful to all, even if so many people naively imagine so. The problem is, they blindly generalize from their positive experience, making others feel stupid or guilty if they don't follow, but, just like with those other religions or sects, these "nice witnesses" take NO RESPONSIBILITY of any disaster that may result from their "kind and wise" advice, dismissing any such report as any kind of bad luck with a few bad apples and so on.

A justice problem

And this is what shocks me the most in all this stuff : it is a huge gap in our justice system - strongly related with the failure of psychiatry to satisfy a famous criterion of scientificity. That psychiatrists and pharmaceutical industries remain so completely irresponsible (judicially immune) with respect to all the disasters they commit. And even if some psychiatrists may be somehow good, why are they not shocked at the sight of these horrors and this immunity of their peers ? Do they have no political conscience or what ? How can they tolerate to belong to a corporation that commits these things ? What can be the sense of expecting people to trust any psychiatrist, even if it sometimes happens to have good effects, as long as in the name of this nice invitation and the positive consequences that may happen to some, so many other lives are destroyed and nobody is sued ? Isn't this completely mad to expect anyone to take such a system seriously ?
However, the psychiatrist who actually spoiled my brain had been warmly recommended by someone who saw him as very nice...

It does not qualify as a science

For something to be qualified as a science, its claims have to be falsifiable, i.e. it must be able to acknowledge when it makes any mistakes. But psychiatrists never acknowledge their mistakes. Instead, they diagnose any disagreement with their views as a mental illness. Okay, this remark needs more details and explanations. This is why you should visit other sites as linked below, where tons of details on the non-scientificity of psychiatry were exposed by others.

Am I losing my nerves and reason when using so big words ?

You may mistake me for whoever you like, however you can't change the fact I know - and those who know me know it too - that I am extremely rational, objective, unbiased and very wise and skilled at truth discernment in my positions, naturally trusting people and authorities, and unable to suspect anyone of anything --- unless forced to do so by overwhelming evidence. And this rationality and natural eagerness to trust and expect wisdom in others, is precisely the reason why I was victim of psychiatrists (and not only of psychiatrists...) : I could not expect them to possibly be as mad as they actually were.

There is actually a cure from, at least, drug damage

I am myself a victim of psychiatry. I included a brief mention of my own experience in the second part of my presentation video (text version) - but more details are only in French.

I thought the brain damage I got from that shit was beyond repair, as it lasted many years but finally I got a solution described there. (I can try to help if people in Europe ask me...)

Another testimony

As I had written a page in French against psychiatry long ago, I once got this testimony by email (April 2013, added there in French, here translated):

 I have read your text about psychiatry and "schizophrenia" that was diagnosed to you.

To be very brief about my life, here is some information: ENS *** in mathematics, (...) Master (...). My mother is hospital psychiatrist. I count at least 10 psychiatric hospitalizations in my family (so there are more ...). Including 4 on me before and after ENS ... As you can imagine, it's a bit complicated to have a crazy hospitalizing mother, obsessed with intelligence, the gifted and schizophrenics. (...)
Furthermore, 1 child, a wife. Who were brutally confronted with this world when my mother, based on my kid and an unemployment situation, while deciding to visit me, decided to detain me again for the fourth and hopefully final time. (...)

What you have experienced is but the norm. I know of other cases similar to yours and mine.
This latter observation is the one leading me to suggest you to organize against this world. (...)
I am 100% rationalist. I share some of your political views (from what I've read) although this is an area that interests me very little. (Let's say I became a misanthrope, except about my family and the diagnosed schizophrenic ... others may die mouth open...)
I have absolutely no desire to play the prophets and put texts on the Web, and I would be grateful for doing nothing in my name.
As you may have noticed by being repeatedly called mentally ill, this is a delicate subject. For me it is now my life: Psychiatry Hospital is a trap from which it is impossible to escape.

My goal now indeed is to help people who suffer from such situations. You had a taste of the pills. The pills have shattered me, but okay, and that's nothing compared to the fact that people can decide on a whim that "ah duh! What about hospitalizing Son! He is a little too rational this morning". Such situations happen too often. (...)

I think [skeptics] are unaware how much psychiatrists see them as morbidly rational. I just expect a nice event to fall on the corner of their mouth. For fun. Nothing against skeptics from my point of view, however; except a waste of time ...

As I answered "I put more hope in the idea that one day there will finally be programmers who will be the development of my software project that will result in an overall political revolution, which not only will much more effectively help to deal with this problem but many other problems of all kinds."

I do not criticize other's projects.
But from a medical point of view, I must confirm that this paragraph makes you a schizophrenic. This is the medical point of view. As for mine, I just know, like any good math student, when a definition is not operational, it is necessary to adapt the definition to make something more elegantly manageable for a demonstration. Roughly: "schizophrenic" does not mean much.
But now that you are categorized as such and given that you are in refusal of care, I think you should feel still affected by the 2011 law that allows medical professionals to impose outpatient treatment under penalty of hospitalization. I suggest you pay attention to your back, and above all to cultivate good relationships with your family. I do not know your situation, but I know certain institutional mechanisms and their dynamics. It's a scary world. Watch out.

Is this scientology propaganda ?

A very insane but widespread fallacy is to focus on the very loud anti-psychiatry campaigns by Scientology, to conclude that opposition to psychiatry is mere propaganda from scientology, to be confused with all the sayings of diverse "alternative" therapists opposing modern medicine.
Sorry, what argument for the validity of psychiatry is this ? If any people that you may consider to be wrong, no matter how wrong and for what reason, said that the Earth is round, would it suffice to make it flat ? So if scientologists say that psychiatry is totalitarian pseudo-science, does it suffice to make psychiatry a good and genuine science ?
The horrors of psychiatry were observed and experienced by many people, not only by Scientologists.
By dismissing anti-psychiatry as mere scientology propaganda, defenders of psychiatry are in fact indirectly serving the interests of Scientology, making things look as if Scientologists were the only people sane enough to be aware of this horror and having the courage to speak against it... So, people should take refuge in Scientology if they want an alternative and the truth be said about that horror.
No, please, please, stop feeding that absurd game.
Scientologists are not the "only lucid and courageous people" fighting against that beast. Not at all. And please don't let them either be so nor be mistaken as such. Network Against Psychiatric Assault (former "Occupy Psychiatry") - gathers the following groups:

“Alexis, Lanza, Holmes and the Psychiatric State” by Jon Rappoport

Joseph Stack: "Yet at the same time, the joke we call the American medical system, including the drug and insurance companies, are murdering tens of thousands of people a year and stealing from the corpses and victims they cripple, and this country’s leaders don’t see this as important as bailing out a few of their vile, rich cronies. Yet, the political “representatives” (thieves, liars, and self-serving scumbags is far more accurate) have endless time to sit around for year after year and debate the state of the “terrible health care problem”. It’s clear they see no crisis as long as the dead people don’t get in the way of their corporate profits rolling in."
