The psychiatric prison imprisons people without committing a crime and excuses people who might have committed a crime.
The court has the power to convict people who have committed a crime to be incarcerated in prison.
Forced drugging is legal in the psychiatric system both inside and outside psychiatric institutions. Some countries do not allow force in the community but they can forcefully drug anyone once they enter psychiatric prisons. Many people have had their homes violated in order to drag vulnerable people into psychiatric institutions against their will. People who find bio/coercive psychiatry harmful are told they lack insight while those who cause such trauma for many are convinced or convince themselves it is for their own ‘good’. Many so-called ‘mental health professionals are so blind that they cannot or won’t see the harm they cause.
Once a person is labelled by psychiatry it is very easy to be in danger of being forced treated.
Lack of true information (information should always be true) on psychotropic drugs is rampant in the psychiatric field so much so that you could ask are psychotropic drugs ever taken voluntarily? But to tie any person down with brute force while injecting them with drugs they often know will harm them is one of the most terrible crimes against humanity. These drugs can cause a chemical lobotomy with several serious adverse effects once they are in the blood system and can be very difficult to withdraw from! Inspired by all my sisters and brothers who have gone through this kind of torture in the name of ‘help’.
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.” C.S.Lewis
I first heard this quotation by C.S. Lewis from my friend Helena King who was incarcerated and forcefully drugged more than 70 times, the first time after having her first child. She never survived psychiatric torture and knowing her history it was the drugs that were responsible for her ending her life at the age of 63. She was a firm believer in Catholicism and her faith would not allow her to consciously take her life. She suffered the most severe adverse effects from psychotropic drugs possible for more than 3 decades. I dedicate this to her memory, everyone who lost their lives because of deceptive, coercive psychiatry and all those who continue to do so today or have ever been harmed by psychiatry.
