Recommended Posts

It looks like an interesting debate is coming up in November on Intelligence Squared regarding the responsibility of psychiatrists and pharmaceuticals for the "epidemic" of mental illness. Here's a link to the site and description of the debate:

Compsport, you'll be able to watch it live in November, so it'll be like being a fly on the wall... Without the risk of being squished.

I looked up the two debaters who I suspect will see things the way we do sort of (short of taking these drugs they just can't know how bad it is) 

Both have books I may get a couple that look interesting and read them before the debate.  I forget the titles of the ones that interested me already my memory is so bad just now... that too seems to come and go lately.  I hope I don't forget to watch it. I think it has the potential to be outstanding. 

thanks for finding it... and sharing. 

peace
