Tom Cruise chews out Matt Lauer on LIVE TV

by David Vogler • 4,220,331 views

Tom gets into an argument with the Today Show's Matt Lauer. Tom is arrogant and gets rattled when Lauer won't kiss his ass. These Scientology nuts are out of their damn minds.

Please tell me what vitamin can cure schizophrenia? There is room for medication in treatment as well as holistic approaches.  It is not as black and white as he has been fooled into thinking.  Many years working in psyc hospitals has shown me that some things cannot be treated any other way.  It is true that drugs are over prescribed and that's because it is cheaper and easier than behavior mod and cognitive beh methods.

Wow, I was totally unaware that Tom Cruise went to medical school and was an expert in all things relating to chemistry.  And here, I just thought that he was a self-centered, cult-following, delusional, nut-job, high-school dropout that became an actor!

I disagree with the practices of giving kids meth obviously but I really wish it was being represented by someone a little more reasonable than this idiot who believes in a blatantly obvious money making scheme called scientology. And Matt Lauer was exactly right when he said, "You want people to do well but you want them to do well, by taking the road you approve of." Tom says no but then when Matt asks why she shouldn't take something that has helped her, he says, "Because I disagree with it."... You just validated Matt's point Tom lol

So much Logic Fallacy in Tom's arguments. Just answer the damn question: If it helped her isn't that enough? No apparently not. It's got to be his way, or no way.

You could make the argument that antidepressants can help, they can. CAN. Theres a POSSIBILITY that they will work at the risk of about 20-40 side effects that include, heart attack, stroke, permanent involuntary muscle movements, and death to name a few. I suffer from depression, but a quick read was enough for me to say FUCK THAT ther are plenty of ways depression can be fixed and tom was very right in that respect, diet and lifestyle changes help immensley.

He's right. I'm no Scientologist and the point he's making has nothing to with Scientology. Psychiatry is a scam on so many levels. I don't even feel like discussing it. I can say that I personally have received a prescription for Vyvanse (basically Speed) after a 3 minute verbal analysis of how I behaved as a kid. Psychiatrist said: Oh yes, looks like you a serious case of ADHD. What a joke. So don't even get me started on psychiatry. Everyone needs to get off Tom Cruises dick because he's a humble man and smarter than most people. They don't accept his views because SCIENTOLOGIST. LOL who cares what religion he accepts, looks like christianity and islam caused more harm than all other religions combined. Assholes.

well, that was painful to listen to. i remember when the sopranos took on the topic of psychiatry. of course, tony was in therapy throughout the series but his kid was diagnosed with something along the lines of ADHD for some bullshit reason (he tapped his fingers and some other nonsense too much) tony yells at that person "he's 12 years old he gets an erection every 10 minutes!!" to say psychiatry does not work at all is crazy. but then i ask myself "why do so many mental patients end up shooting up malls schools and theaters. maybe its because they go off their meds, but then you need to ask why they go off their meds. if the answer is "because of the side effects" or "because psych drugs alone dont do the job" tom cruise has a legitimate point here.

Matt Lauer is right here. Tom Cruise doesn't understand that some things might work for some that don't for others. If people feel like anti-depressants aren't for them, then fine don't take them, but don't judge and criticize other people. Worry about your own life and self.

This guy [Tom Cruise] is just not right here. No such thing as a chemical imbalance? Dude what do you think Parkinson's disease is. What do you think depression is? Vitamins are not an answer to medical disorders such as depression, bi-polar, schizophrenia and on and on. He says he "studied the HISTORY of psychiatry". This doesn't cut it. I can study the history of the Mormonism and not really know what it's like to be a real Mormon. Cruise is really too generalized in his thinking here. I really think he doesn't know psychiatry but got caught in a position that he has to defend and really can't because he has no factual information, just feelings and generalizations.

Psychiatry and psychology are not exact sciences, they are an art. Nothing is set in stone like with physics and psychologically anything is possible. A good psychiatrist will be able to diagnose and help, whether with therapy or drugs prescribed correctly.

Truth be told I agree with Tom on the fact that those drugs are very dangerous.. I was put on Ritalin Cylert and then the all mighty Lithium and that one almost killed me... I then took myself off all psychotropics and began a clean lifestyle. Psychologist are not crazy its the idea that all children who appear to be hyper are all doomed to become psycho and a danger to society so lets just numb them all out.. Diet, Exercise and Education are the key factors to a healthy lifestyle...

We are chemical imbalances. All of us.we are chemicals. Hell were made of hormones. thats a chemical. How is something biological not a chemical ?
Report spam or abuse
I totally agree to +peridotangel83. The thing about mental disorders is that there is a chemical imbalance, but those arise upon deeper things. You dont just get depression for no reason. There is a reason for your depression and it´s the task of a psychotherapist to get to it step by step and eventually solve the problem. The thing about anti-depressants etc. is they´re nothing else than drugs. They "mask" the problem as tom mentioned. But tom doesnt see the benefit of such drugs. The benefit of it is: for example someone who as anxiety, is going to be superman after just a few psychotherapy sessions.. So the psychiatrist gives him anti-anxiety pills, so he go and be no anxious anymore. But the point is to not see the psychoactive substances as a chance for a new life but as a chance for a new PERIOD of life UNTIL the psychotherapist and the anxious guy solves the problem WITH the psychotherapist. After solving the problem, which most of time lies deep in someones psyche, the anxious guy doesnt need anti-axiety pills anymore because hes not anxious anymore. It´s hard work. Thats all. Just like training your muscles you can train yourself not to be anxious anymore. TLDR: Anxious Pills for better living, until psychotherapy solves the problem.

Eurrrgghhh.  I've got a psych degree, and this interview makes me cringe so much.  It is so obvious that he didn't extend his "research" outside of any Scientology-approved information sources.  And if Tom read any research papers, he clearly didn't understand them.  He's talking about chemical imbalances (As related to psychiatry) and then starts talking about blood tests.  What the hell?  Doesn't he realize that the chemicals he's referring to are only found in the brain?  That's something a psych 101 student would know.  And why are people always hung up on electroconvulsive therapy aka 'shock treatment'?  It is NOT given to unwilling people.  It is NOT a 'punishment'.  It does NOT hurt.  And it has shown efficacy on otherwise treatment-resistant patients with severe major depressive disorder.  /endrant

I have to say Tom is 100% right on this subject, and also I love the fact he does research to back up everything he says. I wish more Americans did the same.. Whether based on voting, or just a basic conversation with a friend, to many people speak out of both sides of their mouth, not knowing a damn thing about anything..His principles are of merit, but the whole scientology aspect I dont follow, or give merit to..

Psychologists don't prescribe. Psychiatrists do. Many people who don't believe in Therapy probably don't want to admit that it works because they're probably afraid of the truths and actions that will be discussed.  GOOD therapy doesn't skirt issues with the patient and is as valuable as any spiritual quest.  Tom and Matt and all of us have some issues.  NO ONE is perfect and EVERYONE could benefit from GOOD therapy.  Just like any Doctor, there are good therapists and bad therapists.  Good ones are heroes.  Chemical imbalances exists.  Genetic differences exists.  Why are some people alchololics and drug addicts and others aren't.  That doesn't mean it's an excuse either.  Treatment with quality therapy and 12 step programs AND proper diagnosis and distribution of psychotropic drugs have helped MILLIONS.

Tom Cruise would be a absolute BASTARD to live with, no wonder he cant hold a marriage.   Just by listening to him on various interviews, its quite evident that he is the type of person that always believes he is right, he is not the type of person that would even consider compromising.   It's either his way or the high way.  He has always come across as being a bully.

I don't pay to see Tom Cruise act anymore -- no matter the film. Will NOT support someone who uses his substantial movie star influence to call psychiatry a "pseudo-science." While I agree that Americans in general are over-medicated, countless lives of mentally disturbed people have been greatly enhanced -- even returned to normal contributing members of working society -- through psychiatric treatments involving a combination of mental and organic treatments including the right drugs.

Whenever anyone starts with, "You have to understand..."  that is disconnected, arrogance.  It is not coming from a true authentic place.  It is coming from fear, which is what arrogance is based on.  Lauer saying that you want people to take the road YOU (Cruise) approve of, as opposed with what may work with them says it all to me.  Cruise, quickly, "No."  Yes.  The arrogance is apparent.  I love is movies, but, he needs to come off his cloud, and perhaps when you have had the career in the limelight like he has, you are not really part of a normal world, so, how can you expect him to respect others views.

YES meds are working for Brooke Shields, however, once she goes off the meds... The problem is back if not worse. This happens to everyone. The meds mask the problem not cure it. Even Tom was not pushing Scientology as a cure-all, he is saying all these meds are wrong.  Nobody can deny how much prescribed medication is out there, prescribed by doctors.

I agree that drugs are not the best choice. But saying that there is no such thing as a  chemical inbalance seems to be some scientologist BS. If you become depressed it does alter your brain chemistry and you can even check that in a blood sample. Psychology is not some evil institution as Scientologists wants to paint it as. It is a discipline, nothing more. And sure it is or is not science depending on how you define science. Since it contributes with working theories rather than facts, it is not as clear science as natural science. But it has developed sufficient models that are based on scientific research.

the FORCED complex dynamics of American 'culture' leads to conflicts of interest, being overwhelmed, misinformed, coerced, emotionally fragmented. this same system then feeds you a pill to put to sleep parts of your subconscious or soul. its like ripping out the signals in your car dashboard that tell you that something is wrong. if you are on meds, you are suffering in ways that you are unable to realize. all the conflict inside us boils around in our guts until we eat food so that our body has something to RIP TO SHREDS so our body doesn't RIP ITSELF TO SHREDS. food as symptom medication as opposed to nutrition. and of course this makes you obese. the extra fat slows down the rate of discomfort, but only temporarily. more food, more padding, bigger body. and it gets bigger and bigger...................... whether its pyschmeds or food, its not solving the problem. the structure of society is such that there WILL BE  a certain percentage of people who end up living like this. and that is intentional. our fears and traumas are so deeply imbedded that dealing with them is such a delicate matter. it requires more than what is available, emotionally speaking. where are the healers? there aren't enough of them. isn't it depressing that there isn't some guru becoming more wealthy whilst healing an emotionally ailing celebrity/wealthy person? rich people with ALL the free time and finances to fix things but not the understanding or comraderie to do so. I for one, do not laugh at the demise of celebrities.............. it doesn't mean that we average people are better than them when they self-destruct. if they cant get help, its a bad sign for all of us................ America. a factory for making strung out obese people. this is such a tragedy. in addition to this, in fact underlying it, is how we are possessed by our assumptions/pretentions/beliefs/ideals/morals/'science facts'/.....structure of language..... it makes zombies out of us.

our language is the biggest culprit. our assumptions OCCUPY our life force energy. our assumptions lead to compulsions. we get trapped with our pretentions. we are ALL living on the edge of a major medical catastrophe. too much reality upheaval/undermining can threaten your very life. these drugs just put us to sleep. unmask your assumptions, liberate some of your trapped energy/spirit to do other things, rather to come HOME TO THE BELLY. every transcended assumption makes you closer to wholeness. the alchemy of transmuting parasitic thought structures. do not think to KILL your personal demons.....transform them into PURE LIGHT.

we insist on raising children by filling them fairytales about gods and santa claus and tooth fairies or 'democracy' or 'industrial/technological progess'. if you don't have what it takes to carefully show them that our world is a sadomasochistic torture chamber, maybe you should just not have any. anyways, eventually, the lies and the fairytales eventually lead to a conflict between the evidence of the senses and beliefs that are unfounded. this can lead to physiological chaos. these drugs avoid these conflicts. it MASKS it as tom has said. they get you to become guilded into your sleepy state. 'withdrawal' from the drug is more an issue of avoided issues suddenly boiling up to the surface. take some more drugs and go back to sleep. maybe you become a person who FINALLY has the courage to stop taking the licensed poison.

Ritalin is in the family of Crystal Meth. Modern day psychiatry was founded by devil worshipers. Freud, Spock and others were Luciferians. Tom is right, there is no proof that depression and schizophrenia are caused by brain chemistry issues. The cure for mental illness is Calcium Disodium EDTA suppositories (suppository form only)  This flushes the heavy metals out of the system which is the root of mental illness. Also, the other reason for mental illness are mineral deficiencies in our food. We need to fertilize our produce with Rock Dust. Bacteria in the ground eat the Rock Dust and and excrete mineral rich waste into the soil which is perfect plant food. They remove the rocks out of the ground so they can run their tilling farm equipment through the ground without having their tilling blades damaged.   SOLUTION:  Put rock dust back in the ground to replace the rocks they took out sou they can run their tractors and still have food for the ground bacteria that feeds the plants.
