McDonaldisation of social crisis, is putting it mildly. When 'senior politicians in Canberra regret how quickly the program has been expanded but they said Headspace could not be challenged because it was like "questioning the Pope"' that's when I just think... how could you be so cowardly. You've got to question the Pope! Children have been harmed under the church. And many, many people have been harmed under psychiatry.
That's right: Psychiatry is really very far from normal
Psychiatry has also experienced extreme job growth in Australia, a near 500% increase in the past 5 years compared to other professions that have had only 14%.
In Victoria, every year there are 5700 people who say no I don’t want to be electrically or chemically treated, it is harm not help. Yet will be forced to undergo treatments. Those 5700 people go unheard on mainstream media, while the mere 4000 psychiatrists employed in Australia get to chatter on TVs and radios Nation-wide about their specimens they use. Those psychiatrists get to victim-blame us. It’s outrageous.
