"Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive." -- C.S. Lewis
Psychiatry's "shock doctrine" is quite literally electroshock, and its latest victims are - I'm not kidding - young children.
On January 25, 2009, the Herald Sun, based in Melbourne, Australia, reported, "Children younger than four who are considered mentally disturbed are being treated with controversial electric shock treatment." In Australia, the use of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is increasing, and the Herald Sun's report on "Child Shock Therapy" stated that last year "statistics record 203 ECT treatments on children younger than 14 -- including 55 aged four and younger."
