You will be astonished by what you learn from my guest, Commander (R) Mary Neal Vieten PhD. She is the Founder and Director of WarFighter Advance, the best program in the world for the treatment of returning soldiers suffering from war trauma. It is a model for everything good in how to help people in emotional and physical distress. Their drug-free, non-medical education and training approach starts with one very intensive week with professional and peer follow up. It is enormously successful, helping nearly everyone come off drugs and live a better life. Talking with Dr. Vieten on the show leads me to give a heartfelt analysis of just how bad psychiatric treatment has become. I say it outright: Psychiatrists are among the most stupid people on Earth about human nature and human life. We discuss how psychiatry needs to be replaced by innovative, caring programs like WarFighter Advance. You will be inspired and informed by Dr. Vieten, by WarFighter Advance, and by the show. Note: Dr. Breggin misspoke when he said Dr. Vieten's tours of duty were in Iraq.

 

Judith A. Reisman PhD is my hero and my guest on this week’s radio/TV hour.  Against enormous opposition, Dr. Reisman exposed the scientific fraud and outright child abuse perpetrated by Alfred Kinsey, a fake researcher and advocate for the destruction of sexual morality, who led the exploding sexual revolution that begin in 1948 and has never slowed down since then.  His unethical, criminal activities–masquerading as science and published as bestsellers–helped to corrupt Western values, causing inestimable harm. We owe to him an escalation in broken families, the degradation of love and sexuality, and a rise in child abuse.  Become one of the few to have heard this story.  Without it, you will have no idea what drove the sexual revolution in America. 

 

A KEY TO SUCCESSUL LIVING: With my marvelous guests, psychiatrist Pinar Miski MD and nutritionist/physician Pam Popper PhD we discuss perhaps the single most important key to success in life:  Identifying our feelings of helplessness, then refusing to become helpless and finally determining instead taking charge of our lives.   As a corollary, we discuss becoming a person who does not impose helplessness on others—a person who encourages people to be strong and self-determining.  These are not just words or slogans.   Nothing is more important life that learning to identify feelings of helplessness that can overcome us at critical moments in life when we must marshal all of psychological and intellectual resources in order to overcome emotional and real-life obstacles.  And few things matter more in life than also empowering the people in our lives.

Does Psychiatry Have a Future? Two psychiatrists, Peter R. Breggin, MD and Gail Tasch MD, squarely face the question as it has never been faced before:  Is there a place for psychiatry on the face of the Earth.  We look at and compare our training, consider the history and shortcomings of our profession and our colleagues, and come to a stunning conclusion.  If psychiatrists can see the light at the end of the their own tunnel, they can become the most heroic profession imaginable.  They can save millions of people, perhaps hundreds of millions, from a plague of neurotoxicity that’s more widespread than any known viral epidemic.   

The New Menace that Surpasses Psychiatry

My discussion with researcher-filmmakers Aaron and Melissa Dykes will open your mind to what the future holds for all our brains and minds—and it is far more insidious and potentially transformative of society than the primitive and yet already tragic shenanigans of so-called  modern psychiatry. For anyone who has wondered where a failed psychiatry will go—here is the answer that is now unfolding.

I have spent much of my life fighting psychiatric oppression in the form of primitive attempts at controlling the brain and mind through neurotoxic drugs, electroshock, and psychiatric brain surgery.  Now the FDA has approved electronic mind control in the form of Monarch, a device for flooding the brains of children with wholly destructive electrical impulses in the name of treating ADHD.  Yet Monarch is crude compared to what billionaire entrepreneurs are close to implementing, not just for the “mentally ill,” but for all of us. Please listen pay attention to this stunning analysis and exposé of mind control—past, present and future—with researcher filmmakers Aaron and Melissa Dykes, who created the incredible full-length documentary film, The Minds of Men, which has already been seen by millions. 

"The Best Stuff I've Learned from Life."  On New Year’s Day 2020, Dr. Peter Breggin offers a heartfelt discussion of “The Best Stuff I’ve Ever Learned from Life.”  He describes the experiences, ideas and attitudes that have contributed to his eight decades of vigorous, exciting and passionate living.  This spontaneous, direct, often personally revealing hour will give you a window into how to live a good, satisfying and successful life of your own—one you can look upon each day proudly and with satisfaction.   You probably know about Dr. Breggin’s decades of reform work and may be familiar with his blogs, books or videos; now hear what has guided his life. 

The newest psychiatric abuse of children—the Monarch electrical stimulator applied to the foreheads of kids labelled ADHD—is explained by electrical engineer Ken Castleman, PhD, who joins me and psychologist Michael Cornwall PhD.  Now that the FDA has approved it, this new abuse will be unleashed not only on children unfortunate enough to be labelled ADHD but on anyone that prescribers think fit.  Any child with a psychiatric diagnosis or a psychological problem will be fair game.  We cannot stand by while a new wave of atrocities, in the form of electrical assaults, is unleash on millions of children.  Someday we may look back to the good old days when the worst they did to our kids was drug them!   Scrambling their brains with the electricity may be the ultimate atrocity.  Please go to www.breggin.com to learn more about SPAC!

Psychiatric Drugs: Neurotoxins that Do More Harm than Good. Psychiatric drugs can ruin our quality of life, causing brain damage, cognitive deficits, apathy and withdrawal reactions. Medication spellbinding then blinds us to the seemingly infinite harms... Medication spellbinding then blinds us to the seemingly infinite harms caused by these neurotoxins.  Dr. Breggin draws on many decades of clinical and forensic experience, his research, and his many scientific articles and books, including Toxic PsychiatryMedication Madness and Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal.  He reviews  his most important observations and conclusions about the harmful effects of psychiatric drugs and how to withdraw from them.  This one-hour talk is his most comprehensive and up-to-date overview of what everyone should know about psychiatric drugs before taking them or trying to withdraw from them.   It is intended for the general public, including people taking or contemplating taking psychiatric drugs.  But it also presents information and scientific principles largely unknown to mental health professionals.  If they knew the truth, many therapists and other health professionals would think twice before referring their clients for psychiatric medications. 
 

On this remarkable radio/TV  presentation of the Dr. Peter Breggin Hour, I talk with  three outstanding Toronto activists and leaders in the antipsychiatry movement: psychologist Bonnie Burstow; psychiatrist Stephen Ticktin;  and activist Oriel Varga.  Much of our time emphasizes what they are doing in Canada and the world to stop psychiatric oppression—a goal which I wholly support.  Yet we somewhat disagree about the nature and aims of psychotherapy.  The disagreement pertains to whether individual freedom or the necessity of social change lies at the heart of living a good life.  For me, therapy should enable individuals to pursue their own personal goals in a satisfying manner and I seldom find that political activism is high on anyone's wish list.  For them, political activism is part of recovery.  An interesting discussion between well-meaning people who deeply respect and enjoy each other and yet who differ on an important aspect of what it means to live a good and satisfying life.

This Dr. Peter Breggin Hour, the third in my new radio/TV format, is probably my best-ever talk about how to overcome emotional and psychological impediments to sanity and a good life.  On my own without a guest, I explain the nature of psychological or emotional helplessness and how to over come it, and then take the conversation deeper into our worst fears and dreads and how to pull ourselves out in order to live the best possible life.  I begin this spontaneous talk by catching you up on the latest in electrically-induced mind control—the exact opposite of how to live life—and then spend most of the hour delving as deeply as I can into what life is about, including what are the worst threats, and how to live it above and beyond them.
