The Dr. Peter Breggin Hour – 12.21.16

Involuntary treatment has led to untold numbers of individual abuses, rampant torture in state hospitals, ECT and lobotomy, neurotoxic drugs, gross offenses against constitutional and human rights, and crimes against humanity. At the Nuremberg Doctors’ trials, involuntary psychiatric “euthanasia” would be described as an entering wedge into the Holocaust. Esteemed Danish medical researcher Peter Gøtzsche, MD, and I confront the horror of involuntary treatment from personal, ethical, scientific, constitutional, and political perspectives. This could be the best and most lively discussion of coercion in psychiatry you will ever hear. Extremely important for understanding the menace of psychiatry. Please tell others about this important hour, the third of four consecutive talks with Peter Gøtzsche.
