I'm glad to see most of the post writers can see this ECT scam for what it is.
I thought most readers would be familiar with the use of psychiatry throughout history to help eliminate undesirables and dissenters. True, this
happens most noticeably under very totalitarian conditions (Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia) but it is happening in "free" countries, too. There are
lots of sites besides CCHR that carry such stories. And we have some famous ones in our recent past, such as Francis Farmer. There are many
others. All you have to do is look.
Of course in democratic countries there are laws, mostly at the state level, to protect our rights. But there is constant pressure to weaken
them. Apparently such weakening has recently happened in France. As a result, a lot of these laws are not that strong. For example: it might require
someone like a parent or spouse to sign commitment papers. Well, what if you aren't on good terms with your family? Who can protect you then? And
there are certain populations that are particularly vulnerable, such as prison inmates, foster children, and old people.
If a person doesn't believe that there is evil in the world and that criminals can hide behind "legitimate" professions, well, I think they just
have to raise their confront. It happens. And the problem with psychiatry is that it does not appear to be just random. It's organized. There's a
plan. You have to hunt around the internet, or a good library, to find out about stuff like this. It's not going to be on the evening news
(normally). But you CAN find out about it. It IS real.
