Ah, the certainty. The arrogance. The absolute conviction that your belief overcomes all facts.
This is an example of a scientology fundamentalist (he also happens to make his living collecting donations for his “psychsearch” business in addition to being the “Overt Data Collection” guy for OSA Flag).
The “plan to take down psychiatry” is to file complaints against psychiatrists.
That assumes the majority of, if not all, psychiatrists are doing something for which a complaint could be filed. And then that those complaints are all found to have grounds and “Hey Presto” the psychs are “taken down.” This is indeed an article of faith for scientologists — all psychs are criminals. After all, according to scientology scripture, they are “whole track implanters” who originate on the planet Farsec and are intent upon enslaving mankind. (Not going to comment on the obvious holes in the story, only note this IS what scientologists believe, though the Farsec is from a confidential “advice” restricted to those in the SO who are “high enough case level and in good enough shape” to be allowed to read this revealed “truth.”)
This plan is akin to the snake healers society putting together a plan to take out the evil medical profession that does not believe in the power of God to heal all man’s ills. They circulate an email to all the snake healers and their disciples telling them to file complaints against medical professionals and this will then “take down” the evil men of medicine.
I don’t think Ken Kramer or any of the people he targets with these emails (except perhaps those that forward them to me) have ever noticed just how many psychiatrists there are in the US (or the world for that matter). For the record, the Bureau of Labor statistics says there are 25,000+ employed psychiatrists in the US. And how many patients? Anyone’s guess. But there are clearly many more practicing psychiatrists in the US than there are scientologists, let alone practicing auditors (that number is probably less than 1000).
But Ken Kramer is “taking down” psychiatry. “Just think big, bigger, bigger!” Funny, David Miscavige announced sometime in the early 2000’s that psychiatry would be “obliterated” by 2010.
In fact, psychiatrist numbers are increasing while scientologist numbers are decreasing. The reason scientology is not being crushed by psychiatry and Big Sumo Pharma is that they don’t perceive it as any sort of threat. As much as scientology wants to believe they are “impinging”, the truth is they are invisible.
This is the same sort of blind faith evident in the constant statements from orgs that make one clear a year or a week or a day “we are clearing our area (of 20 million people).”
I think these people ARE delusional. Isn’t that some sort of induced mental illness?
