Anti-Psychiatry

A key tenet of anti-psychiatry is that mental illness is a myth. This concept states that illness is a physical concept and therefore cannot be applied to psychological disorder without any physical pathology. Anti-psychiatry has perhaps been defined more by psychiatry itself than by its adherents who include R D Laing, D and Thomas Szasz.

Award
Future Generations: www.eugenics.net - Generations is about humanitarian eugenics.   Humanitarian eugenics strives to leave a genuine legacy  of love to future generations: good health, high intelligence, and noble character. We advocate measures to improve the innate quality of humankind which are entirely voluntary. Please be forewarned that most ideas expressed on this website are "politically incorrect." We aspire to total honesty, believing that it is the only policy for people with integrity, and furthermore, that in the long run, honesty is far-and-away the most compassionate policy. If we ever hope to solve the problems which face our species, it's imperative that we first look at them objectively, and assess the scientific evidence without bias. If the truth about genetics and behavior, about eugenics, or about race, is considered "taboo," and falsehoods are the only socially.  4/5
