Emails Show American Psychological Association Secretly Worked with Bush Admin to Enable Torture | Alternet

Having been a victim of the   psychological-psychiatric-pharmaceutical establishment, this comes as no surprise. One therapist even told me he considered my political beliefs to be “detrimental to my mental health”. Very reminiscint of how the Soviets shipped off dissidents to mental hospitals in the 70s, because after all, the system is fine, so if you can’t get along, there must be something mentally wrong with YOU. The story of academics’ collaboration with immoral, illegal government experiments and  torture is much older though, heads of the association (often respected academics in respected universities) during the 1950s worked with the CIA and FBI on developing torture techniques to brutally break down a prisoner’s entire sense of self, through the use of all the techniques we’re familiar with today. Many also worked on the MK-Ultra drug induced mind control experiments. So next time you think you need “someone to talk to that’s a professional” or a “cure” for your intense and/or inappropriate emotional responses or other eccentricities, be wary. That same therapist who blamed my depression on my politics (and not on my understanding of how miserable the world is), also lectured me in a very cruel manner about what would happen to HIS career if I did indeed kill myself. Now that’s a care-giver. I think he was a devout Catholic as well, but I digress…
