Our country faces unmitigated disaster if the Other Side wins

The past several weeks have made one thing crystal-clear: Our country faces unmitigated disaster if the Other Side wins. No reasonably intelligent person can deny this. All you have to do is look at the way the Other Side has been running its campaign. Instead of focusing on the big issues that are important to…

Mentally Ill Individuals or Societal Systems?

When we diagnosis an adult or child as mentally ill, we are also diagnosing our society as mentally well. What if we’ve got it backwards? The percentage of Americans disabled by “mental illness” has increased dramatically since 1955. A large survey of randomly selected adults, sponsored by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and…
