Suzanne Marie is our Herro. To some extent she keeps us grounded when wishful thinking leads us to conclusions that logic and fact doesn't support. I rarely agree with her, but I don't think she's hardcore Scilon.
Having said that, I went to the sites she referenced. In my opinion they're just another group of nutballs. No more facts there than with CCHR. I thought it was funny as hell that they went to some lengths to distance themselves from Scientilogy and CCHR.
She doesn't keep me grounded, but I agree with the second part. All their "evidence" against psychiatry is anecdotal (individual stories) of abuse. If individual stories were to become cause for eradicating an entire group or practice, then scientology itself would easily be eradicated from the planet.
Nearly all of our social institutions have anecdotal evidence or instances of abuse in their histories. Historically, hardcore abuse has occurred in our hospitals, our prisons, in our families, our governments, our schools, in our military and especially in our religions. To say that psychiatry is the underlying cause of everything that goes wrong on planet earth and all institutional abuse is pure craziness. I guess there was no such evil prior to the 1800's and the birth of Wilhelm Wundt? No one was tortured or locked up, no women or children were raped, and there were no lives ruined prior to 1850? So then LRon invents the "whole track" and says psyches are reincarnated and they keep coming back here lifetime after lifetime to wreak havoc. Then what did a "psyche" look like prior to 1850?
So that guy in the red robe who tortured and burned me at the stake back in 1497 was really a psyche? Oh, right, he was a "priest". Psyches and priests, same thing according to LRon. How convenient. And the craziness goes on and on...
It is true that psychiatry has been used as a tool by people in power to harass, abuse and control. Then so have various systems of economics, organized crime, religion, political ideologies, etc. Okay, now I'm repeating myself. Anyway, there is no evidence that psychiatry is the overall underlying cause of ruined lives on planet earth, and that if it were eradicated, all evil would disappear. This idea is nothing but a belief
that is accepted as part of a system of indoctrination.
Psychiatry was LRon's natural enemy because he was muscling in on their territory. He was solving the problems of the human mind which was their agenda, and he could never compete with them on their level. So he sidestepped the issue, started a psychotherapy based "religion" and waged a campaign against them. Now his followers are engaged in a forever-war against their evil Nemesis. SuzanneMarie is being a good foot-soldier, earning her medals so she can get a good seat at the right-hand of LRon in the Galactic Empire of the Future.
