Deconstructing Antipsychiatry

Seen some antipsychiatry writings and feel you're not being told the whole truth? You're right! I'll show you what's true, where the lies are, and what's missing. Time to end the misinformation and conspiracy theories (on both sides).

Initially, I've posted my review/critique of Psychiatry and the Business of Madness. Initial release: Oct 25/2016

Comments, Questions or Suggestions

Given the sometimes inflammatory nature of this topic, please email any comments to me at I have no desire to add online commenting and turn this into a flame-fest.

If this opens me up to criticism of censorship or bias, so be it, but I'll let you be the judge of my bias based on the writing. I'll add that there are no shortage of other places on the internet to make your views known.

Implied Grant of Permission Regarding Comments

Unless otherwise stated, any comments etc. that I receive will be understood as coming with your permission to incorporate them, in whole or in part, into a future version of this text, without any claim of ownership on your part. In other words, I maintain the copyright on the whole work, even if I include some material you sent me. You're still free to do whatever you want with the material you sent me, publish it elsewhere, etc.

The above paragraph basically says that if for example I later decide to sell a $5 ebook version of this article, or if Big Pharma wants to pay me $100 million for it, you can't prevent me from doing so, and you don't get a piece of it.

If you'd rather I not include any comments or other material you send me, just say something like "please do not include this in a future version of Deconstructing Antipsychiatry". If I do incorporate your material, I'll do so anonymously (i.e. without attaching your name to it) unless you explicitly say otherwise, e.g. "please include my name if you use this" or "you can include my name (or not) if you use this". I don't promise I would necessarily use your name if allowed (e.g. if you provided a small correction), but I definitely won't use it without your permission.
