Scientology, Anonymous, and the Pharmaceutical Industry

Scientologists are frequently derided as fruitcakes. The group "Anonymous" criticizes Scientology.

Sometimes, I wonder if the pharmaceutical industry is secretly funding both groups.

In addition to their questionable activities, Scientologists also say "The 'chemical imbalance' theory of nonsense." When a Scientologist says that, he is 100% correct and 100% telling the truth.

The history of Scientologist vs. the psychiatry/death industry is interesting. When L. Ron Hubbard developed his personal growth techniques, he did it both to sell books, and also because he sincerely believed they worked. When he tried selling his techniques, he was criticized by the death industry for "practicing psychiatry without a license". I say psychiatrists are guilty of "practicing medicine without a clue".

Whatever criticisms of Scientology you might have, any drug-free treatment of mental illness is practically guaranteed to be far superior to any treatment involving anti-psychotic or anti-depressant drugs. Given the free choice, and if those were my only two options, I'd prefer to have my "mental illness" treated by a Scientologist than by a psychiatrist. Scientologists recognize that if someone is in a panic/manic state, then it naturally wears off after a few days. After a few days without sleep due to the "flight or fight" reaction, your exhaustion catches up with you and you start sleeping and thinking normally again. Anti-psychotic drugs interrupt your body's natural healing process.

Scientologists do many questionable things. By the Strawman Fallacy, therefore everyone who says "The 'chemical imbalance' theory of mental illness is nonsense." is a fruitcake. The group Anonymous ridicules Scientology's beliefs. The group Anonymous also ridicules them for saying "The 'chemical imbalance' theory of mental illness is nonsense."

In this manner, intelligent debate of this issue is stifled. If you say "The 'chemical imbalance' theory of mental illness is nonsense.", then the retort is "Are you a fruitcake Scientologist?" The only mainstream public advocates for this position are Scientologists. This discredits all people who question the psychiatry/death industry.

This setup is so convenient that I sometimes wonder if the pharmaceutical industry has secretly arranged it.

Have you researched or tried a homeopathic approach? There are no drugs involved and countless people with mental illness have been greatly helped..
Homeopathic treatment operates on cure by the law of similars, the only true way to cure an illness.Get yourself a Homoeopathic Materia medica and repertory, find the one that most closely matches you,,and bang,,you got it...look at Gelsemium first,,focus on the mind when looking for a remedy...

Good luck,,,Fritz

S-ist have it right on anti-psychiatry, but wrong on just about everything else. They believe that brainwashing and lying is acceptable.

Maybe you need another frontgroup then? If you have Scientology or CCHR rooting for you, don't be surprised to catch some flak.
Even if what you said was true (which it isn't), having a group of Scientology lunatics shouting it doesn't help your cause.
