re"mental illness was with us long before the rise of chemistry" by jamdox
"Mental illness" of the past was likely a real lab test detectable disease. A disease such as syphilis , alzheimers , Parkinsons, multiple sclerosis, Epilepsy, Mad Hatter syndrome, Plumbism.
It is not absurd to blame pollution as a cause for mental illness.
We have noise pollution of cars going beep, and trucks backing up beep, with sirens 24/7 in an urban environment.
We humans are not robots or machines, feelings (stress) can not be successfully fixed with forced chemical manipulation of the brain. Ask any street junky how the drugs are working out in the long term.
RE "You do harm to everyone when you downplay the importance of medication"
You do harm to everyone when you lie about medication.
We do not know what mental illness is.
If they did know what the correct brain chemistry is, mental illness would no longer exist and this illness would then be a physical neurological illness.
The mentally ill have 25 year shorter life span.
Medication is for disease. Medication for mental illness is an euphemism.
People are either criminals or law abiding citizens. For criminal actions you put people on trial and if guilty jail.
To force the law abiding mentally ill person to consume meds- chemical treatment, where their illness is subjective and not lab test detectable is preventive justice. You presume the mentally ill person will be criminal without meds-chemicals.
A person must commit a crime and a trial, jury, etc, before being found in fact to be a criminal.
In psychiatry the person is presumed guilty, with one judge the psychiatrist, the opposite of the justice system.
Once on, or taking the medications (that inhibit thought), the mental patient will likely be unable to do anything GOOD or productive (to perform work takes thought ), fulfilling their mental illness judgement-prediction.
The drugs-meds-chemicals make billions for the Pharma Co.s every year.
