BBC: Psychiatrists hit back at Cruise

BBC:
Actor Tom Cruise has been criticised by the American Psychiatric Association (APA), following remarks he made on US TV attacking psychiatric medicine. "It was irresponsible for Mr Cruise to use his movie publicity tour to promote his own ideological views," it said. Cruise called psychiatry a "pseudo science", after NBC host Matt Lauer questioned the 42-year-old's stance against anti-depressant drugs. The actor criticised Brooke Shields for taking drugs for post-natal depression.
Choosing sides in this battle is like choosing sides in the 1980's Saddam-Iran War.

I'm sure that Cruise just went home and banned Matt THETANS from his head, then recited an ode to Xenu. I wonder how many people know that Scientology was begun as a bet between two hack science fiction writers?

I thnk Tom Cruise needs Psychiatry himself. That guy is a wacko.

Gotta love the accuracy of that analogy. How very astute. [/sarcasm]

psychiatry and scientology are essentially each dominated by false creeds.

1 - PSYCHIATRY:

(a) freud was wrong about everything psychiatric; sigmund's work makes only for mildly interesting literary criticism.

to the extent that psychiatry is freudian it is bunk.

(b) treating mental and emotional illness with drugs needn't be done by a psychiatrist - in fact MOST of the prescriptions for drugs which treat these types of illnesses are written by priamry care doctors - as it should be.

2 - scientology is just plain weird. a phony religion invented by a wacky scince fiction writer - a false prophet.

so when i made the analogy it was an accurate depiction of how i feel about both: they both suck and both need to exposed as largely bunk.
