Chinese dissident Wang Wanxing spent 13 years as a guest of the Chinese police in psychiatric detention. In 1992, after he was detained while unfurling a banner critical of the Chinese Communist goverment, the psychs jailed him for “severe mental pathology.” According to the NY Times, he was diagnosed with “‘delusions of grandeur, litigation mania and conspicuously enhanced pathological will,’ which Western human rights groups say are diagnoses that officials have used to lock up troublesome dissidents who have not broken any laws.” Rather like the millions of slippery diagnoses of “Manic Depressives” who are put on drugs or locked up against their will here in the US and in Europe.
Here’s the article in the NY Times.
Human Rights Watch has said that such abuses are increasing in China. Wanxing says he was forced to share cells with murderers and to swallow drugs to “blunt his will.” For psychiatry, this is “business as usual.” In China, as it was in Soviet Russia, and Nazi Germany, psychiatry is a tool of the state, used to round up and silence the dissidents and non-conformists. In America, psychiatry is the pimp for the drug companies, the tool through which they have addicted millions of children to psychiatric drugs at taxpayer expense. You’ve got to admire the sheer size of their scam.
Human Rights Watch has documented 3000 such cases of political psychiatric abuse in Chinese prisons. The
Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) has documented thousands of cases of psychiatric abuse in the good ole’ USA, far beyond mere fraud, including murder of patients, rape, child molesting and other abuses of the “doctor/patient” relationship.
The more you find out about the pervasive abuses of psychiatry, the madder you get.
It’s time to be outraged.
