BTW every time I see this thread I read it as Exes who have OSA pants. Maybe that's what we should call each other when we have certain suspicions.
DM's regime probably just uses "illegal pc" status as one more angle to extract cash. But it's all bullshit. It's just a defensive thing to prevent scn from ending up in the paper or evening news. It's too late to help them at this point.
I suppose what you say is true. I'm not totally discounting psychiatric methods. But there is too much emphasis upon things like medication.
But in my last lifetime, I was very much f****d over by psychiatrists. What happened to me I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.
In many cases, the goal is to turn the client into a total effect. If it were up to me, and my only two choices were leaving the system as it is, or totally eliminating it, I would eliminate it.
I think it's like anything else. Sometimes it works out, sometimes not. I've seen some egregious fuckups by psychiatrists. I've also seen people who were truly helped by psychotherapy and even by meds administered by psychiatrists.
There have also been people who were screwed over by their auditors. I've seen stories posted here.
What they usually do is make the person prove his or her loyalty by going through more training. I knew someone who already had all that paid for, but that wasn't good enough. They wanted the person's loyalty and expertise proven by actually DOING the training.
So it's more than the money, for a change. It's about their incredible paranoia about loyalty and all that.
They treat people who've ever done anything in the FZ and who then want to go back to CofS the same.
I think I still have my OSA pants somewhere. I outgrew them, of course, and trying to fit into them these days would result in a severe case of genital strangulation. Come to think of it, that's probably a complaint that many still-active OSAbots suffer from. It's gotta hurt.
