Cruise launches war on psychiatrists

Tom Cruise has declared a public war on psychiatrists because he fears the “pseudo-science” has led to a drug-fuelled crisis for today’s children.

Consumer Alert: Scientology

“Scientology is evil; its techniques are evil; its practice is a serious threat to the community, medically, morally, and socially; and its adherents are sadly deluded and often mentally ill… (Scientology is) the world’s largest organization of unqualified persons engaged in the practice of dangerous techniques which masquerade as mental therapy.”
– Justice Anderson, Supreme Court of Victoria, Australia, quoted at What judges have to say about Scientology

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights is one of several Scientology front groups. It is involved in hate propaganda against psychiatry and psychiatrists.

L. Ron Hubbard was addicted to psychiatric drugs from an early age until the day he died. Even though he told his followers not to take psychiatric drugs, he did so himself to the extent that he was addicted to them. They are the source of the very strange “OT” levels on which people are expected to talk to the souls of dead space aliens called “body thetans.” He was well aware of the mental problems he was having. Until he “invented” Dianetics® he had no money for psychiatric help and so he once wrote to the Veteran’s Administration and begged for psychiatric help.”

The movie hunk was diagnosed as dyslexic when he was just seven, and doctors suggested he should take drugs to control his learning problems.

Memories of that part of his childhood fuelled Cruise to seek alternative ways of overcoming his dyslexia – a problem that led him to the Church of Scientology’s educational programmes.

Becoming a scientologist in 1984 made the actor look closely at the controversial religion’s anti-psychiatry stance, and he has since become a firm believer that the science and the medicating of children is wrong.

Speaking exclusively to US news show ACCESS HOLLYWOOD as part of a week-long special about his scientology beliefs, the movie hunk declares, “I’m going right after psychiatry and these false labels and this pseudo-science.

“I was diagnosed as dyslexic; I had a lot of energy as a child. They wanted to put me on drugs… Never did; my mother said no, absolutely not, no way and I’m thankful.

“Had I been put on those drugs, I never would be here today… I never would have had the career that I’m having.

“Am I making people aware of it by discussing it openly and saying what a fraud psychiatry is? You bet I am. I feel a responsibility because I care…”

The actor also maintains that poor results in education in America can be blamed on mind-altering drugs that are given to children.

He adds, “SAT (exam) scores have gone right down the toilet. The parents are blaming the teachers, the teachers are blaming the parents and the psychs are putting everyone on drugs.”
