This video was produced by the Church of Scientology in an effort to drive people to their churches and set them apart as leaders in the field of mental health. The church controls groups like Narconon and Applied Scholastics, which use their spiritual philosophy to get people off drugs and teach them how to learn. These groups have a secondary function of recruiting people into the church.

Narconon boasts a 75% success rate in getting people off drugs. This is a lie that has been recently disproved by their own internal documents yet they still advertise this. They also use generic looking websites to trick people into thinking they are getting an unbiased referral when in fact they are just being recruited into Narconon for a $3000 fee for the referral site.

Make no mistake about it, this video is a propaganda tool and it seems to have worked.

Really? I guess you need a little more information on the subject. This is NOT propaganda, it is the truth.
The Citizens Commission on Human Rights's website has a very educational video for your veiwing pleasure... to wit:

Psychiatrists claim a history of great advances in the area of psychotropic drugs. ...
Sigmund Freud’s early drug marketing efforts helped create a major coc aine epidemic throughout Europe. ...
... taggering details of side effects such as violence and suicide could no longer be ignored—with an estimated 3.9 million adverse events on Prozac alone. ...

Very worthwhile site to visit. They have some links to other very relevant stories like Real Disease vs Mental Disorder.

Further, Philly .Com has an article about psychotropic drugs and Veterans.

"Psychotropic drugs often intensify the veterans' suffering and isolation," ...
... “the greatest concern is the suspicion of the over-prescription of antipsychotic medications for PTSD.” ...

"There are many effective and nonpathologizing solutions to the epidemic problems destroying our war veterans. All of us - including the military, the VA, and mental-health professionals - must stop automatically labeling war veterans 'mentally ill.' Being shaken to the core by war is a deeply human reaction. Calling it mental disorder alienates veterans from themselves and their communities and causes moral anguish. It blinds civilians to veterans' pain and cuts civilians off from their common humanity with those who have gone to war.

That last quote says it all for me, if they're over-medicating veterans for normal human responses, why is it so impossible to think they do it to regular civilians?

RTE News Ireland has seen a steady rise in psychotropic use for the elderly entering homes...

There is ongoing international concern that the medication is sometimes used as a form of chemical restraint for older people, especially those resident in nursing homes.

Even ABC News has an article reflecting a Year Long investivation they did on the subject. Their findings are not surprising in lieu of OP's video...

In addition to tremors, muscle spasms and restlessness, antipsychotics can cause tardive dyskinesia, a permanent and irreversible condition where a person has involuntary movements of the tongue, lip, mouth, and arms and legs. While less common with newer antipsychotics, each year 5 percent of people on antipsychotics will develop tardive dyskinesia, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. Many experts are also concerned about the prolonged use of antipsychotics in children, given there are very limited long-term safety studies for their use in children.

ABC's report goes on to list a comprehensive amount of medications and their side effects. They note that medications are just one way to treat mental illness.

Trends in the Prescribing of Psychotropic Medications to Preschoolers is a paper published all the way back in the year 2000. This report concluded that:

In all 3 data sources, psychotropic medications prescribed for preschoolers increased dramatically between 1991 and 1995. The predominance of medications with off-label (unlabeled) indications calls for prospective community-based, multidimensional outcome studies.

There are so many more sources that have nothing to do with the church you mentioned. How can you dismiss the OP as propaganda when it seems that everyone else can see the problem but you? Mainstream media, scholarly articles, grass roots movements, angry parents... the list is virtually endless. It is not hard to use a search engine and obtain results for further reading on the validity of this trend.

What I find most disturbing is that this is not a new trend! The paper I referred to above is from 13 years ago! What will it take for people to realize that the only conspiracy here is only exactly what is stated in the OP?

It's past time we stop this madness!

Some connections are just too convenient.

I found this comment on a blog and with the stuff going on now thought it might be pertent:
First, you build a medical/pharmaceutical industry that successfully pushes the notion that every little sorrow, nervous twitch, or bit of restlessness is a “disease” that needs to be treated with psychoactive drugs. Then you go on a holy crusade to take guns away from the “mentally ill” (and all the bobbleheads who haven’t thought about the implications repeat “good idea, good idea, good idea”).

So with the consent of the ignorant, complacent, well-programmed, and the devious slimeballs who take advantage of all of the above, any one of the millions who’ve been propagandized into taking one of those psychoactive drugs can become a candidate for losing his or her gun rights. No due process, no nothin’. (Added: Well, maybe the opinion of an authoritarian, anti-gun counselor or shrink.)

It’s just too-too perfect. Politically elegant.

Oh yeah, and it helps if you also set up “medical privacy” systems that centralize your health-care data and share it willy-nilly with “authorities.” END QUOTE:

The connection might not have been planned but the results are self evident; I do agree "elegant" in a devious sort of way......AMAZING HOW THINGS CAN BECOME INTERCONNECTED

CCHR is an organizaton formed and run by the Church of Scientology as well. I dont deny that prescription drugs are rampant on this world, just informing where the info and video came from. Google CCHR, Operation Snow White, etc. The Church of Scientology ran the biggest infiltration operation on the US gov in history. Many of their parishoners went to jail as a result.
