PSYCHOLOGIST EXPRESSES CONCERN OVER DECEPTIVE MATERIAL PUBLISHED BY THE NIMH
Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD hears from a psychologist/colleague, one who is true both to science and to
his patients. Herein we learn how our own National Institutes of Health,
specifically, the National Institute of Mental Health, Steven E. Hyman, MD,
Director, continues about it’s business of making normal citizen’s believe they
have ‘diseases’ so as to make them into patient who both think they need drugs
and who can be forced to take drugs because psychiatrists have told the court
you are a danger to yourself and others. This is all legalized by Congress
writing such fictions into law, giving them the weight of the law. This is our
government turning against it’s citizen’s at the behest of the pharmaceutical
industry which has paid to have this done.
