Child Drugging: Psychiatry Destroying Lives

Contrary to psychiatric opinion, children are not "experimental animals." They are human beings who have every right to expect protection, care, love and the chance to reach their full potential in life. A chance denied them by psychiatry's labels and chemical straitjackets.
Child Drugging: Psychiatry Destroying Lives
 
Newspaper articles often trumpet the "wonders" of modern day psychopharmaceutical research for the treatment of childhood learning and emotional "problems" and "disabilities."
They sound reasonable. They sound convincing—science again conquers our material universe for the benefit of Mankind. Who could possibly argue with making a normal life possible for those in trouble?
Daniel's parents would. And so would Cory's. They would argue vehemently and passionately. And with more than 20 million school children worldwide said to have a mental disorder that requires them to be chemically restrained by powerful mind-altering psychiatric drugs, these parents are far from alone.
Who are Daniel and Cory and why do their parents disagree? They are children who are not only unable to lead normal lives because of so-called "miracle" drugs; they are tragically no longer with us at all, because of those drugs.
I invite you to analyze the above illustration more closely from the point of view of children, because the reality and the labels may not reflect the same thing when it comes to psychiatry's "drugs of the moment."
Reflect on several of the words and how they are used. Take "normal," for example. You probably have your own idea of what a normal sort of life is. Does it involve the consumption of addictive, mind-altering and deadly psychiatric drugs? Does it involve a total reliance on such drugs to remain normal?
What about the word "medications?" Does it ease your mind by conjuring up images of some benign cough syrup prescribed by a kindly family doctor? Nothing could be further from the truth. A psychiatric medication is a very powerful addictive drug.
Then there is the term "scientific," often used by psychiatry to add legitimacy to its pronouncements. According to the World Book Dictionary, the word implies "systematic; accurate; exact." Those characteristics have nothing to do with psychiatry or, for that matter, its cousin, psychology.
Examples of other words which suffer at their hands are "values," "right," "wrong," "safe," even "education."
This is the subtle propaganda of the psychiatrist and psychologist at work—the redefinition of words. Somehow in their hands, things just seem to get all twisted about and eventually fall apart.
The trouble is that their worldwide propaganda on the subject of children and education has thoroughly duped well-meaning parents, teachers and politicians alike, that "normal"—there's that word again—childhood behavior is no longer normal; that it is a mental illness. And further, that only by continuous, heavy drugging from a very early age, can the "afflicted" child possibly make it through life's worst.
Who would have thought years ago that we could have come to this? Nevertheless we are here, and the harsh reality is that as a result, precious young lives all over the world are at serious risk, permanently damaged, even lost to us.
Contrary to psychiatric opinion, children are not "experimental animals." They are human beings who have every right to expect protection, care, love and the chance to reach their full potential in life. A chance denied them by psychiatry's labels and chemical straitjackets.
We are making this report, Child Drugging—Psychiatry Destroying Lives, available to expose the lies and propaganda at work, to provide a perspective and information not made readily available to parents and others concerned, and most importantly to help bring sanity and control back to the care and nurturing of our children.
As humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard stated, "Save the child and you save the nation". Children are our future.
There is nothing less at stake here than our very future itself.

News Flash: Scientology is far worse than whatever claims they make against the practice of psychiatry. And your hero L Ron Hubbard's so-called "religion" is nothing but a science fiction, money making sham. If you want to be a slave and get mind fucked, then by all means - join the cult of big brother Scientology wackos. :)

But children really are being drugged like crazy. In my practice, I see children as young as three who are on multiple psychoactive medications prescribed by a so-called "child psychiatrist". including mostly off-label use of selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors, atypical antipsychotics, Provigil, amphetamines, antiepileptics, on and on. A lot of these children are not doing well at all.

And this egregious malpractice has not to do with Scientology.

The malpractice has nothing to do with Scientology, but that doesn't make the cult a viable treatment to the problem. we should be doing everything to keep that criminal organization as far from indymedia as possible.
