Sometimes I wonder if "Soviet abuse of psychiatry" was not abuse at all, but simply the nature of psychiatry itself.

The ruling regime at any time will stigmatize any sentiment that it does not like as some sort of mental illness.

You're starting to wake up.

That's all psychology is for the most part. Keep people functional within the confines of the established value system. It's not about helping people.

You help someone when you provide them with a resource they are lacking. That is help. Convincing someone to think different about something isn't help, it's manipulation.

Convincing someone to think different about something isn't help, it's manipulation.

Do you consider yourself immoral for trying to convince people to think differently about psychology?

Not all manipulation is immoral but I'm not helping people. I am manipulating them to think of psychology a different way. That doesn't help anyone. Does thinking about psychology differently change your life at all? Nothing in your life changes.

The psychiatrist, Thomas Szasz, wrote a book called The Myth of Mental Illness, which is about this specific topic.

He also talked about how contributing factors in a patient's life would be ignored by medical professionals in favor of wholly pharmaceutical treatment. For example, someone with depression may work for a terrible, draining job.

Psychiatry is a system of pseudo-scientific psychological abuse designed to keep the plebs aligned with and contributing to the regime.

You know why I avoid services like this as much as possible right now?

Medical practitioners that follow this guideline absolutely deserve violence, and I worry that I might be the first to do so, the moment such a thing happens in front of me.

If only "prescribe drugs" meant they could actually prescribe ivermectin now.
