How we use language is important. I want to utilize this opportunity to describe to you two terms, psychiatric slavery and death control. My goal is to help you to understand what these two terms are, and to point you in the right direction if you choose to learn more about them.
Psychiatric slavery is when professionals earn money from psychiatric coercion, force, and confinement.
Death control is related to, but different from birth control. Birth control is exerting control over when one creates life. Death control is exerting control over when one ends their own life.
Chattel slavery, owning humans that perform manual labor, was once legal. Psychiatric slavery is currently legal. It is legal for certain individuals to earn money from and to profit from psychiatric oppression, force, coercion, and confinement.
Psychiatric slavery should be outlawed. There are many justifications for psychiatric slavery. When looked at and thought about clearly, the justifications for allowing individuals to earn money from psychiatric coercion, force, and confinement are deficient.
It should not be legal to earn money from psychiatric coercion, force, and confinement. Only voluntary consensual psychiatry should remain legal.
Psychiatrist Thomas Szasz believed that civil commitment and the insanity defense are the foundation of psychiatric slavery. They are the forces that enable psychiatric slavery. To state that psychiatric slavery should be outlawed is to state that civil commitment and the insanity defense should be illegal.
Death control is exerting control over when one’s own life ends.
Birth control is legal and death control should also be legal. Suicide should be respected as a civil and human right for adults. We should not encourage suicides. We should discourage them. We should just not use force, coercion, and confinement on adults who attempt to engage in suicide.
It will be good if we can reduce suicides to zero. However, we should only use persuasion, reason, and kindness to reduce suicides. We should not use coercion, force and confinement.
I hope that you now have a basic understanding of what psychiatric slavery and death control are.
Psychiatric slavery should be outlawed, and death control should be respected as a civil and human right for adults. Only voluntary and consensual psychiatry should remain legal. Non-consensual psychiatry should not remain legal. Psychiatric oppression should be outlawed. Voluntary and consensual psychiatry should remain legal.
If you want to learn more about death control and psychiatric slavery, I would recommending reading books that psychiatrist Thomas Szasz wrote. Related to the topics of this short article, I would recommend reading three of his books. They are Psychiatric Slavery, Fatal Freedom: The Ethics and Politics of Suicide, and Suicide Prohibition: The Shame of Medicine.
