"Psychiatry: Industry Of Death"!
Scientology: Industry Of Money Siphoning! But, there they were, so many of their most famous sheep, flocking around Hollywood's latest museum -- Scientology's "Psychiatry: An Industry Of Death!" -- though not prenatal expert Tom Cruise:

While none of the stars are believed to have a medical degree, the colorful graphics and informative documentaries in the exhibits certainly seemed convincing enough for them to confidently label psychiatry a "fraud" and an "industry of death."

Actress Anne Archer delivers the startling news that at least 100,000 electroshocks are administered annually. The CCHR press release further informs that "psychiatrists kill up to 10,000 people" annually with their use of electroshock, which works out to one in ten.

Actor Danny Masterson explains that anyone who disagrees with them on the subject is "completely misinformed."

If your psychiatrist is not otherwise occupied murdering 10 percent of his electroshock patients, you still run the risk of having one of the 10 to 25 percent of psychiatrists that sexually assault their patients (unsubstantiated figures courtesy CCHR).

The American Psychiatric Association was unable to provide a comment for this story.

Yeah, because they're still howling with laughter, even now.

I am not surprised at any enmity actors may express for psychiatry. Many have a clear bias against the sweaty parts of reality anyway; I suppose many do not believe a person so thoroughly nasty as Hannibal Lechter could exist. To such a person I would ask, "What do we do with a Jeffrey Dahmer?" - but I would expect no useful response.

I am also not surprised that some actors would be vocal about this. What significance can a person really extract for themselves by continually expressing the ideas of other people?

I don't know that actors in general have some kind of bias against psychiatry. But it does seem that the Scientologists do.

Regarding the APA's lack of comment, I hope they never do. Why should they waste their time chasing down every lunatic assertion that comes their way? They wouldn't have time to do anything else. As far as their claim that psychiatry is "an industry of death," Scientologists have no room to talk.

Scientologists make me actually want to LIKE fundamentalist Christians.

Maybe you said it as a joke, but that's a judgment worth making and thinking clearly about.
