"Today a diagnosis is quickly presented and a medication is prescribed. Both parents and clinicians feel pressure to see improvement as quickly as possible, and mistakes in treatment are inevitable." - Evelyn Goodman

"The tens of millions of people who find themselves unhappy in our modern technological paradise, this world under control, are diagnosed with some psychiatric disorder and medicated with mind-altering drugs. Like the dissidents in socialist utopia, if living this good life renders you depressed, anxious, or unable to concentrate you've got an illness." - Charles Eisenstein

"All knowledge can be used either for good or for evil, and psychology is not immune to this general law. Psychology has delivered up to man new means of torture and intrusion into the mind. We must be more and more aware of what these methods and techniques are if we are successfully to fight them.

They can often be more painful and mentally more paralyzing than the rack.

Strong personalities can tolerate physical agony; often it serves to increase stubborn resistance. No matter what the constitution of the victim, physical torture finally leads to a protective loss of consciousness. But to withstand mental torture leading to creeping mental breakdown demands an even stronger personality." - Joost A. M. Meerloo, The Rape of the Mind: The Psychology of Thought Control, Menticide, and Brainwashing

"Let's be honest: If you or I were as dependent on psychotropic drugs as this America is, we would be in rehab.

The FDA has finally proposed warning labels on antidepressants because they promote suicidal tendencies and we should be thankful.

But isn't this just a small patch on a nasty wound?

In the early 1960s, tranquilizers were introduced into America and marketed so heavily that, by 1968, Valium became the most prescribed drug in America. And the party hasn't stopped since.

Didn't doctors know at the time that the drug was being abused and over prescribed, that it was addictive? Of course.

Did they continue to prescribe it? Of course.

Did the manufacturer continue to provide it? Need you ask?

Our society once had an old common sense virtue that psychotropic drugs should be used as a last resort.

These drugs, while useful in extreme circumstances, can have nasty effects like addiction, rages, altered judgement, divorce and suicidal impulses.

Yet we have become so muddle headed by constant market to take these drugs for every emotional malady that we now live in a ridiculous world where we have signs that say "This is a Drug-Free Zone" on the front of a school that is handing out psychotropic drugs to the children for depression, hyperactivity, anxiety, etc.

Psychiatric drugs have become a first resort.

That is the real nightmare the FDA should confront.

Doctors no longer look for causes of depression, such as thyroid problems, lack of exercise, a bad diet, a guilty conscience, medical problems, allergies - the likely culprits could be many.

By using psychotropic drugs to treat the symptoms, they not only expose patients to the effects of the psychotropic drugs but they let the real causes go untreated.

And by encouraging drug use to get over ordinary life experiences, such as a death in the family or teenage shyness, physicians numb the pain that so often contributes to maturity and emotional growth.

The FDA needs to step up to the plate: psychiatric drugs as a last resort."

- Dan Stadford, president and founder of Safe Harbor, a nonprofit organization for non-drug mental health education


forced 'psychiatric' drugging

Respected medical journals are publishing crystal clear evidence that the neuroleptics, which are the drugs most typically used during a forced psychiatric drugging, can alter the actual structure of the brain.

Some of these drugs induced changes - shrinking the size of frontal lobes and thus altering the shape of the brain, are so severe that they are easily seen using MRI and CT brain scans.

Researchers, not just critics of psychiatry, have linked brain changes and neuroleptics.

Neuroleptics are "major tranquilizers" or "anti-psychotics" include trade names such as Thorazine® (also called Largactil®), Haldol®, Mellaril®, Navane®, Prolixin®, Stelazine®, Prolixin®.

Newer neuroleptics - called atypicals - include Clozapine®, Risperdal® and Zyprexa®.

Long term use of neuroleptics is linked to visible shrinkage of the frontal lobes - the part of the brain used for higher level thought, the same part targeted by the frontal lobotomy and shock treatments. (One Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest)

1876 Methylene blue, a derivative of phenothiazine, is synthesized by Heinrich Caro at BASF.

1883 Heinrich August Bernthsen synthesized phenothiazine S(C6H4)2NH.

mid 1880s Paul Ehrlich began to use methylene blue in his cell staining experiments that led to pioneering discoveries about different cell types.

1890s Methylene blue is being used to treat malaria.

1935 DuPont introduced the chemical phenothiazine as an insecticide.

The term "phenothiazines" describes the largest of the five main classes of neuroleptic antipsychotic drugs.

These drugs are claimed to have antipsychotic and, often, antiemetic properties, although they may also cause severe side effects such as akathisia (inability to remain motionless), tardive dyskinesia (involuntary, repetitive movements) as well as other extrapyramidal symptoms such as an inability to move, and the rare but potentially fatal neuroleptic malignant syndrome as well as substantial weight gain.

(The cause of tardive dyskinesia appears to be related to damage to the part of the nervous system that uses and processes the neurotransmitter dopamine.)

Phenothiazine antipsychotics are classified into three groups that differ with respect to the substituent on nitrogen: the aliphatic compounds (bearing acyclic groups), the "piperidines" (bearing piperidine-derived groups), and the piperazine (bearing piperazine-derived substituents).

Aliphatic compounds

Chlorpromazine marketed as Thorazine®, Chlor-PZ®, Klorazine®, Promachlor®, Promapar®, Sonazine®, Chlorprom®, Chlor-Promanyl®, Largactil®.
Promazine marketed as Sparine®
Triflupromazine marketed as Stelazine®, Clinazine®, Novaflurazine®, Pentazine®, Terfluzine®, Triflurin®, Vesprin®
Levomepromazine/Methotrimeprazine marketed as Nozinan®, Levoprome®


Mesoridazine marketed as Serentil®
Thioridazine marketed as Mellaril®, Novoridazine®, Thioril®


Fluphenazine marketed as Prolixin®, Permitil®, Modecate®, Moditen®
Perphenazine marketed as Trilafon®, Etrafon®, Triavil®, Phenazine®
Flupentixol marketed as Depixol®, Fluanxol®
Prochlorperazine marketed as Compazine®, Stemetil®®
Trifluoperazine marketed as Stelazine®

Most of these phenothiazines act as strong central nervous system sedatives.

1944 3,500,000 pounds of phenothiazine is sold in the US.

Phenothiazine use declined after 1944 as it degraded in sunlight and air, so it was difficult to determine how much to use in the field.

Phenothiazine was largely replaced by DDT which was more durable.

1953 Heinz Edgar Lehmann* introduces the use of chlorpromazine, Thorazine®, to calm down agitated psychiatric patients even though the use of chlorpromazine was not legal to use on psychiatric patients at the time.

Heinz Edgar Lehmann performed hundreds of human experiments from the late 1930s to the early 1970s.

Between 1955 and 1973 alone he conducted 330 - the equivalent of a new experiment every three weeks. Heinz Edgar Lehmann describing chlorpromazine as a "pharmacological substitute for lobotomy"."

When patients developed "slate-blue pigmentation of the face and forearms" Heinz Edgar Lehmann and colleagues experimented on 38 patients, administering doses of chlorpromazine ranging from 200 to a staggering 3,200 milligrams to see at what dose "slate-blue pigmentation" occurred.

Three of Lehmann's subjects died of "fecal impaction" after being given large amounts of chlorpromazine.

Five other patients developed severe obstruction of the intestines.

Other patients began to develop jaundice and symptoms of Parkinson's disease during the course of his experiments.

"Patients receiving the drug become lethargic. Manic patients often will not object to rest and patients who present management problems become tractable. Assaultive and interfering behavior ceases almost entirely. The patients under treatment display a lack of spontaneous interest in the environment. They tend to remain silent and immobile when left alone and to reply to questions in a slow monotone. Some patients dislike the treatment and complain of their drowsiness and weakness. Some state they feel 'washed out' as after an exhausting illness, a complaint which is indeed in keeping with their appearance." - Gorman Hanrahan & Heinz Edgar Lehmann

"In many ways, these drugs can accomplish in a few doses what took years for the Nazis to do to put people in a state of helpless obedience." - Peter Breggin

Heinz Edgar Lehmann became an international psychiatric icon after his 1953 chlorpromazine 'breakthrough'.

Claims that chlorpromazine 'improved' patients gave 'psychiatry legitimacy' and opened the door to a multibillion-dollar partnership between psychiatry and the pharmaceutical industry.

Heinz Edgar Lehmann became one of the longest-serving members on the US government's Advisory Committee on Psychopharmacology.

Heinz Edgar Lehmann was never licensed to practice medicine in Canada or America.

"Lehmann was a drug pusher, shock promoter and torturer - just as psychiatrist Ewen Cameron was. We now know that Lehmann forcibly drugged hundreds of psychiatric patients with high-risk, experimental drugs such as chlorpromazine which he knew or ought to have known would cause serious harm including brain damage." - Don Weitz, founder of People Against Coercive Treatment (PACT)

1977National Institute of Drug Abuse estimates 4.8 million prescriptions for Thorazine® written out in 1977 - over 271 million pills worth.

2005 Over 2.2 million children were being given psychotropic drugs for having a lack of concentration or for emotional outbursts were labeled as temperamental extremes or a lack of social skills are now labeled as disorders, deficits and dysfunctions.

Antipsychotic drugs are now known to do the opposite of what pharmaceutical manufacturers claim - the drugs harm the brain, the harm is visible in brain scans and looks remarkably similar to individuals that have experienced neglect or isolation for prolonged periods.

Heinz Edgar Lehmann Thorazine neurotoxin for ALL

"I disagree with the view that psychiatric treatment is nicer than it was 50 years ago. Instead of straitjackets, chemical straitjackets are now used: debilitating and addictive drugs. And such barbaric treatments as shock are still being used. Any forced treatment is a violation of human rights. People who are depressed or distraught are aware that they are suffering. If they experience relief from treatment, they will accept it willingly. Of course, anyone who has been criminally violent should be incarcerated to protect themselves and others. But many maniacal shooters of recent years have been on psychiatric drugs. Before treatment, they were troubled but not violent." - Louise Marquis

To be forced to take neuroleptics is a profound violation of fundamental human rights!!!

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought. All factual information presented on this web site is believed to be true and accurate and is presented as originally presented in print media which may or may not have originally presented the facts truthfully.
