A Plague upon Our House

Dr. Scott Atlas’s book, A Plague upon Our House, gives unique insight into the goings-on of the White House Coronavirus task force meeting. This was the group of rejects that thought they were smart enough to outsmart a virus.

Atlas recounts the many meetings he had at the task force and the performances of idiocy. At the meetings were Dr. Birx (scarf lady), VP Pence, Dr. Fauci, and other fools. In his tales, Dr. Birx stands out as the real villain, while Fauci was just a parrot along for the ride. Dr. Birx was rude, short-tempered, and sought to dominate all conversation around corona coming from the White House. Dr. Birx loved to make color-coded charts with arbitrary cut-offs, and categories. No one at the meetings, besides Atlas came prepared with any relevant scientific literature!

When Atlas questioned the lockdowns, the masks, and the general direction things were heading, he was ostracized. If he brought up the fact there would be severe damages caused by lockdowns and fear-mongering, he was accused of being dangerous and not following the science.

Atlas was a top radiologist with degrees in epidemiology, who eventually went on to Stanford to work for 15 years as an academic epidemiologist. This did not stop those in power from calling him a fringe nut job.

Atlas was incredibly naive going into the job. He couldn’t believe that the so-called scientists in charge had no clue or concern with what the science was saying. They had no interest in keeping up with the latest science. He didn’t realize he was dealing with politicians disguised as scientists.

For someone of Atlas’s age, it is a bit embarrassing how optimistic he was. He thought could help by analyzing science and using his knowledge as an epidemiologist to help the county. Little did he know that the entrenched bureaucrats had none of that in mind.

He should have read Bureaucracy by Ludwig Von Mises first. Bureaucrats seek to enlarge their position, gain power and prestige at the cost of everything else.

The Real Anthony Fauci

The Real Anthony Fauci is an in-depth look at the psychopath named Fauci. There are so many facets to this man’s deviousness. He has been able to deflect so much of the crap he’s been involved in over the years that people who know him call him Teflon Tony. The book is dense but worth it.

Most disturbing were the experiments Fauci conducted on orphaned children with his favorite toxic AZT drug thought to be helpful for AIDS. This was unethical and illegal as the children were not granted a guardian to look after their “treatment”. Many of the kids in the study died and were buried in a mass grave in NY. The BBC did a documentary on it called Guinea Pig Kids. Not all of the kids even had confirmed cases of AIDS. If the kids refused to take the medicine and protested by refusing to eat, they then had feeding tubes installed.

It is no surprise that he also sanctioned the gruesome experiments on beagles and the grotesque experiments involving rats and aborted fetal scalps. The scalps of aborted children were sutured to rats where pharmaceutical products could be tested. This man cannot be taken seriously by anyone with a conscience.

Iatrogenic Harm in Psychotherapy

Unlike psychiatric drugs, psychotherapy is generally assumed to be safe and has little or no harmful side effects. Iatrogenic effects of psychotherapy are, in fact, well documented and even include death. Potential sources of iatrogenic harm in psychotherapy are: medicalizing and pathologizing ordinary human emotions, altering a client’s beliefs about the nature of their suffering, and learned dependence on the therapist. If therapists wish to help clients deal with emotional suffering, they must be aware of the potential for unintended harm. Just as psychotherapists bring awareness to the negative forces affecting a client’s emotional state, so too therapists must be made aware of the negative forces affecting the practice of psychotherapy.

A Life Inside: A Memoir

I found out about the book, A Life Inside: A Memoir by Mindy Lewis, after reading a footnote about it by Thomas Szasz in his book, Words to the Wise. In Words to the Wise, Szasz says:

Upset by her teenage daughter’s rebelliousness, a New York mother commits her to Columbia University’s Psychiatric Institute (P.I.). In her memoir, the “patient” writes: “On my application for admission to P.I., asked to specify the reason for hospitalization, my mother had written: ‘Rebellious behavior.’ All my friends at P.I. were then diagnosed as schizophrenic…. I was never schizophrenic. Not then, not now. How could they possibly have interpreted my rage and confusion as schizophrenia?” The answer is called “standard of care.” Had one of the psychiatrists assigned to treat this young woman asserted that she did not “have schizophrenia” and set her free, and had she then killed herself (or injured her mother), the psychiatrist would have faced an unwinnable malpractice suit.1
