Psychiatric Brutality

Psychiatrists have been a part of quite a bit of brutality recently. Here are a few facts:

More then 250,000 people have been sexually abused by psychiatrists, up to 10,000 people are killed every year by electric shock treatment, children as young as six years old have been killed by psychiatric restraints, more than 100,000 people die every year in psychiatric institutions, every 75 seconds a citizen is incarcerated by psychiatrists, up to $40 billion a year is given to the mental health industry by the United States government, the list goes on.

Why do we trust people who get paid $40 billion a year to cure insanity, in a society which, per them, is getting more and more insane and has to be controlled by drugs more and more? Do they want every human being on earth to be drugged? How does that help us become more sane? Has the world become more sane or less since it has become common to take a pill if you were depressed?

Personally, I don't see that the world has become more sane. There is still criminality, violence and war in escalating levels. So, psychiatry must not have the right solution. To get true solutions, go to and click on the "Solutions" page.
