Pushbutton Psychiatry: A Cultural History of Electric Shock Therapy in America – Timothy W Kneeland, Carol A.B. Warren – p48.

Cerletti was the “inventor” of so called ECT (Electro Convulsive Therapy) in the 1930’s. As it says here (above) he subscribed to a fascist magazine. Italy was the crucible of fascism. In fact the word “fascist” comes from the Italian “fascisti”.

I have now had multiple people say to me about electroshock “Oh, I thought they did not use that any more” yet electroshock machines can be found openly for sale on British websites [1][2][3]. A quick search of NHS websites throws up multiple guidance documents for the use of “ECT” devices [1][2][3][4][5][6].

Now something I never fully appreciated until recently is that electroshock was used in the NAZI camps (above). As one of the articles so sardonically states “something which in itself seems to trouble the claim of it being benign“. As Gibbs is fond of saying to DiNozza in NCIS …

You think ?!

Leroy Jethro Gibbs, NCIS.

Dr Peter Breggin echoes this sentiment …

Psychiatry’s role in the holocaust, Peter R. Breggin, International Journal of Risk & Safety in Medicine, 4 (1993) 133-148, Center for the Study of Psychiatry, Bethesda, MD, USA, and George Mason University, Fairfax, VA, USA, p14.

This concept of describing ECT in the NAZI death camps as “genuine research” almost defies explanation. ECT regarded as “therapeutic” actually in a NAZI death camp ?! Here we cross over into something akin to an Allo’ Allo’ farce …

Or even an episode of Father Ted …

Excerpt from Father Ted episode “Are You Right There Father Ted?” (Ep1 S3). You can watch the full episode for free and legally on the Channel 4 website.

As my research showed, psychiatry and especially things like electroshock are inherently of a eugenic nature. Reading the key work by Edwin Black “War Against the Weak: Eugenics and America’s Campaign to Create a Master Race” about the history of Eugenics convinced me that this is really what we are dealing with. Otherwise why, year after year, decade after decade would psychiatry use “treatments” that are damaging such as electroshock or psychiatric drugs ? If psychiatry was truly benevolent then patients would be harboured in quiet sanatoriums with Lavender Oil drifting though the air and soft music playing, but this is clearly not the case.

THE PROBLEM OF SOCIAL CONTROL OF THE CONGENITAL DEFECTIVE, FOSTER KENNEDY, American Jouranl of Insanity (now Psychiatry), Volume 99, Issue 1, July 1942 (the actual talk this paper was based on was made in 1941).

So why this mess ? Well there it is (above). Evidence of forward planning. The psychiatrists knew even as early as 1941 that Hitler was finished (remember, since Pearl Harbour, the USA had already come into the war after trying to stay out of it). As Breggin covers in his article these psychiatrists were singing the praises of Hitler well before the war started and even praising Eugenics after reports of NAZI “mercy killings” had been reported on by an allied journalist who was still in Germany in the early 40’s. Now their “hero” was seen as having his days numbered so a “longer and wider view” had to be applied. After the war we get “antidepressants” and “antipsychotics” that kill. Electroshock that maims and kills and the wholesale slaughter of innocents in the great name of “Mental Health”. What FOOLS we are ! To have spent so much effort and man power fighting an entire world war only to give over our safety to a bunch of murdering Hitler fans ! Discussion is non-existent. Those who should be fighting these bastards cower like spineless gutless fools in corners as the best of us are slyly whisked away into the shadows of “mental health”.

I’m with Barry Kane in the Hitchcock film Saboteur (1942) which I referenced in another article. His speech made to NAZI sympathiser Charles Tobin goes down as one of the all time greats of proclaiming one’s love for freedom … and people. Tobin, like corrupt psychiatry, is a people hater …

This was actually recorded in 1942 when the result of WW2 was by no means a done deal. We all know what happened in the end.
