Patrick Tobin on Psychiatry

Psychiatry is full of arrogance, egos and conjecture. It doesn’t like to be questioned, it doesn’t like change, and it doesn’t like new ideas. It is in fact a ‘closed-shop’ of selective and ineffective dinosaurs who speak in a cryptic semantic language only decipherable to themselves. They plod slowly through fields and branches of their own professional confusion while maintaining the belief that the modern human condition is to be treated as a caged animal.
