I mean if ECT and the restriction of a person’s liberty can be ethically justified (i am for that, just for the record) then i think banning a

And this is where I stop reading. You realize how little understood the human mind, the human condition and the very nature of human existence is
understood. How can you and the mental "health" field promote yourselves when you dont even fully understand that which you claim to treat.
This is horrible. Justifying torture to cure someone of an "illness" that you don't even understand.
There is a mental illness for almost everything. Everyone is crazy and needs medication according to the big book of mental disorders.
You say that depressed people will kill themselves without medication but suicide has been linked to the same medication to treat it.
I suppose you advocate slicing a hole in someone's head to let the demons out like old school psychology. How can you even begin to think that anyone
could begng to treat the least understood organ in the human body.
You and all your ilk have a mental illness called egomania. If it was up to you 'wed all be on mind-altering drugs. For God's sake who else but a
psychiatrist could get away with feeding children amphetamines or poisoning people with heavy metals. The American Psychiatric Association votes on
new mental illnesses. "Today we want to say using the internet too much is a mental illness. All in favor say aye." Hey the pope talks to God by the
way, by his own admission. You should restrain and ECT him.
If my doctor handed me a drug that said, "By the way, you might want to kill yourself after taking this." I would walk away.
I have no problem with vaccinations or anything of the like in physical medicine. But screw psychotropic medicine.
I will agree in principle that there are some ridiculous threads on here. I am of the opinion that some of the people that post those do not actually
believe what they are posting and are doing it in an attempt to discredit those who truly have seen UFOs or the like and arent making outrageous
I also believe that even tho someone may make an outrageous claim and i dismiss it as ridiculous, maybe it really did happen. I am not so arrogant to
pretend that I know everything in the world that there is to know.
Psychiatrists will diagnose anyone with abnormal ideas as "imbalanced". Just because a psychiatrist says that someone has a mental illness doesn't
make them a god to be worshipped.
