Exposing Psychiatry - Part 4 of 8
Q. What is the difference between God and a psychiatrist?
A. God doesn't believe he is a psychiatrist!
With humour and insight, Reality Tester Aidan Shingler narrates how psychiatry and the treatment it imposes has impacted upon his life.
Illustrated by puppetry inspired by Punch and Judy, Only Smarties have the Answer enlists humour and horror to challenge and expose the inhumanity and inadequacies of over a century of psychiatric orthodoxy.
Eminent psychiatrist Professor Oedipus Punch - doyen of dementia, bain of the barmy - energetically applies his lifelong expertise to the cases of Aidan and Judy. But when the non-compliant Aidan questions the right of the Professor to invalidate his experience, and rails against the inhumane treatment meted out to himself and to the compliant Judy, the system begins to collapse. But will Nursey ever question 'Operational Policy'?
Throughout humanities history those who are today labelled 'schizophrenic' have cast light on the nature of reality, but the relative newcomer 'psychiatry' has rapidly become a weapon of conformity, whether they be those of Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, or Consumerist societies.
Only Smarties have the Answer is part of a continuing campaign to reform the psychiatric system ... "that's the way to do it!"
