Back to the U.S.S.R …

… Should Therapists Treat Climate Change Denial As A Psychological Disorder? (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Wikipedia has an excellent (and heart-breaking) list of the many historical abuses of psychiatry in countries such as China and the former Soviet Union to stifle political dissent by labeling unpopular views as “mental illness.”
Nor is the United States immune to similar problems. Psychiatrist Jonathan Metzl has described how mental health practitioners in one hospital in the 1960’s “diagnose[d] African Americans with schizophrenia because of their civil rights ideas“ including the patients’ displays of “aggression” and “hostility.”

I like to refer people to this: Professor Valentina Zharkova Breaks Her Silence and CONFIRMS "Super" Grand Solar Minimum - Electroverse.
