60 years ago it was completely cool to slice apart my brain but now it isn’t.

Mental illness is a myth;
Mental illness is mind control;
Mental illness is fen-phen for the masses;
Mental illness is future phrenology.

Don’t become a victim of scientific subjugation––
Don’t bow down before the ivory shanty––
And don’t ever let them tell you that you need correcting.
The only mother fucker who can judge you in that way is G-O-D.
Psychiatry doesn’t deserve the connotation that science must deliver––
And just the same––
Neither do you deserve the connotation of any highly probable error.

Remember, the shelf life on any product of psychiatric knowledge rates as
not even on par with a Goddamn Twinky, according to indisputable facts.

Even apparent mainstay concepts that have survived longer than cream filled cakes––
by which I mean the “diseases” themselves as we have come to semanticize them––
the smaller ideas that explain the mechanics of these concepts are fucking houseflies.
