Psychiatric Medications

By Steven de Koenigswarter

A medical journal called Nature Magazine has stated, basically, that “psychiatric medications should be prescribed to healthy people.”

Sometimes the things that Mike Adams (of the Natural News Network) publishes seem borderline tabloid, as they are so fantastic.

However, when I read this article in Nature I could see how far the American medical system has decayed, into just another uncaring industry (at the very least). And so I must thank Mike Adams, because it was his review of this article that alerted and provoked me into writing this post.

The gist of it is that psychiatrists are trying to sell, as “mental faculty enhancements,” the same drugs that cause suicides and homicides (as a result of what they call “mental side effects”). As is evident from the article in Nature Magazine, they are trying to sell these toxins to healthy people. I suppose they aren’t making enough money off of sick people.

If the authors of this article get their way, the American people would effectively become paying lab rats.

There were so many shocking aspects of the article in Nature Magazine, and it was presented in such a smooth manner that the most outrageous ideas were made to appear quite acceptable. I almost came away from that article thinking to myself, “Yeah, what’s wrong with increasing my mental abilities?” It didn’t last long. A few key words woke me up: “Columbine,” “Kids on Luvox” and “Zoloft” killing other kids.

To put this in perspective, I have been looking at the history of psychiatric drugs and the history of serial killings. There are some very curious parallels. There is a history of related murders that goes back almost as far as there is a history. You will also find the existence of serial killers going almost that far back as well. The shear volume of serial killings exploded in the 1950’s, and has been gaining momentum ever since.

Also beginning in the 1950s was the broad use of psychiatric drugs to “restore mental health”, or to at least “limit aberrant behavior.” This came about because a number new classes of pharmacological agents were discovered, notably tranquilizers (e.g., chlorpromazine, reserpine, etc.) The rapid growth of these drugs in psychiatric use in the 50’s has led to a radical change in the fabrics of our societies. Children, no matter how disturbed, don’t go on killing sprees unless their mental state is further unbalanced by psychotropic drugs and antidepressants.

The levels of funding for psychiatry, and psychiatric drugs in use, will be parallel lines to the numbers of serial killings, on any historical graph.

Let me make my point more clearly.

If you look back just before modern times, you will find that the insanity in society was somewhat “limited to the village idiot.” The term “serial killer” did not exist.

I found a very interesting site/index. It lists out crimes committed, and what drug the perpetrator was on. Here is just a small sample:

1) School shooting in South Carolina, October 1995: 15 year old teenager on Zoloft shoots two teachers, killing one. Then kills himself.

2) School shooting Pennsylvania, March 2001: 14 year old girl on Paxil (Seroxat) shoots and wounds classmate.

3) School shooting Minnesota, March 2005: 10 dead, 7 wounded. The killer was on Prozac, of which the dosage was increased one week before the rampage.

4) School shooting Illinois, February 2008: 6 dead, 15 wounded. The killer was in withdrawal from Prozac.

Check SSRI Stories for some very depressing reading.

There are numerous precedents where “insanity due to the use of psychiatric drugs” plea has been used successfully in the courts – which means that the courts, in fact, recognize that these drugs cause psychotic, homicidal and suicidal behavior.

Unfortunately the people of Nature Magazine ignored all this, and promote “the responsible use of cognitive-enhancing drugs by the healthy.”  (Maybe that’s because they are selling the stuff (two of the authors are on Pharma’s payroll).

Feel free to write to authors of that article and tell them what you think. The very last thing this society needs are more school killers created by psychosis-inducing drugs.

    This is a great article. I recently watched this documentary by Kevin P. Miller ‘called Generation RX’. This is the website http://www.generationrxfilm.com. Good to see the pharmaceutical companies getting the press they deserve.

    -Henry

    Thanks for the response Henry, as well as the link. I agree with you and I will look into the site you recommend more closely.

  3. Anthony December 22, 2008 at 7:50 pm #

    Hi Henry,

    I looked at that trailer from the link you posted. Definitely looks like something worth watching.

    Hello Anthony:

    A friend alerted me to your work. Thanks for saying some kind words about “Generation RX.” I think you’ll find it illuminating, comprehensive and shocking.

    Please let me know what you think, would you?

    Be well,
    Kevin P. Miller

  5. Anna December 23, 2008 at 7:57 pm #

    Hi Kevin. I’m sure Anthony will answer you separately, but I saw your sites and I’m very impressed. I will definitely see your movie as soon as I get a chance, and I’ve added the DVD to the sidebars in the meanwhile. The trailer is great. Thank you very much for what you are doing. This is a situation which needs to be confronted before it gets too late.

    How is the marketing going of the film? Please let me know if there is anything I can assist you on.

  6. Anthony December 23, 2008 at 11:28 pm #

    Dear Kevin,

    I have ordered the DVD and I will give you my feedback on it as soon as it arrives and I watch it. I can’t wait to see it. So far I have watched all your trailers and I must say that the quality and style of presentation are very impressive and professional. In fact just from what I have seen I am recommending your DVD to all my friends. Its high time for people to open their eyes and see what is actually going on.

    Thanks for making that documentary.

    Surely, with all the negative evidence concerning psychotropic drugs, something is being done to stop their use on our children and even adults? It’s clear that the time has come to eradicate such an evil, money-hungry industry from our society.

    Thank you Steven for an eye opening article.

    I also checked out the generationrx link given by Henry. Wow… Kevin, impressive.

    Anthony and Anna, you have my support, I notice that you two are continually involved with actions to make this a better world. Please continue with your activities, I think you are making a difference.

    -Mike

    Hi Kevin,Anna and Anthony,
    That’s some trailer. Really like your website too Kevin. Thanks Anna and Anthony for publishing my article. Keep up the good work all and lets put some bright lights on the activities of the psychiatric establishment and maybe save some part of our civilization.

    The Citizens Committee on Human Rights is doing a great deal of excellent and successful work addressing the dangers of psychiatric medication and the alliance between the big pharmaceutical companies and the industry of psychiatry.

    Hello Anthony and Michael:

    I thank you for your very kind words and look forward to your feedback regarding Generation RX. It was a challenge to do so, but i wanted to produce this film for the tens of millions of people who either have children on these drugs or who know nothing about the issues whatsoever. Even for those like you who are keenly aware, however, I believe you’ll find it thoroughly engrossing.

    I truly appreciate your support…and request that you stay in touch. Enjoy a safe and Happy New Year!

    Be well,
    Kevin P. Miller

    Dear Kevin,

    Thanks and all the best wishes for the new year to you as well.

    I am currently overseas but as I said I have ordered the DVD and as soon as I get home I will watch it. I must admit i actually can’t wait to see it just based on the preview. Its one thing to write about something, but a picture or a movie can say so much more than words alone.

    Should you ever wish to guest-post some an article on the subject with links back to your site I am sure I can find some people that would be more than happy to host it on their blogs and provide links back to your site.

    Anna has managed to get the above article, which Steven wrote (and Anna edited), posted on several blogs that promote psychiatric medication.

    It is interesting that these were accepted on those blogs, since the article goes directly against what these blogs are promoting, “psychiatric medications.”

    This brings to light another interesting aspect to this whole situation, as the only reason that I can figure that the articles were accepted is due to “key word content”.

    It a web marketing strategy and leads me to suspect that those blogs are hosted by internet marketers and not any medical or psychiatric personnel.

    In other words, here we have a continuation of mindless promotion of harmful psychiatric medication with the sole purpose as profit for an individual who will not suffer the consequences of taking these harmful drugs.

    This would of course need further investigation. But all indicators, even the nature, structure and advertising of some of those sites seem to indicate this.

    Here’s some more remarkable data from the article in this “journal of science”, Nature magazine:

    First off, not only recommends the article that dangerous mind-altering psych drugs be given to healthy people, preferably university students, but it bases its ludicrous statements on a survey taken at university campuses which found that 7% of the students use psych meds to increase their exam scores and study performance, on some campuses it’s 25%. Note that the other 93% to 75% use the old-fashioned method of just studying your books and materials.

    “In this article,” says the journal, “we propose actions that will help society accept the benefits of enhancement, given appropriate research and evolved regulation. (…) [C]ognitive enhancement has much to offer individuals and society, and a proper societal response will involve making enhancements available while managing their risks.”

    The “enhancement” referred to consists of drugs such as Ritalin and Adderall, blacklisted by numerous watchdog agencies as unsafe and dangerous, causing side effects ranging from heart attacks to violence and death (either suicide or homicide – pick your choice).

    Now, if you question the oxymoron of a magazine called “Nature” advocating psych meds for healthy people, they have a ready answer for you in the same article:

    “As for an appeal to the ‘natural’, the lives of almost all living humans are deeply unnatural; our homes, our clothes and our food — to say nothing of the medical care we enjoy — bear little relation to our species’ ‘natural’ state. Given the many cognitive-enhancing tools we accept already, from writing to laptop computers, why draw the line here and say, thus far but no further?”

    Yes, you read this correctly! In other words, you’re eating double-double bacon and cheese burgers too, you’re wearing polyester clothes and you use hair extensions, so why not just throw a bottle of Prozac in the equation?

    You’re not natural anyway, so who cares?

    Wow!

    A look further into this nonsense finds that Nature hired several “experts” to put this article together – two of which are on Big Pharma’s payroll, naturally.

    We need so many more people like Steven, Anthony, Mike and Kevin Miller with his eye-opening Generation RX video to end the pharma assault on mankind!
