"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Attack those disagreeing with a mental disease.  Worked in Russia.

Make the claim, then hospitalize them for a ten'er or so.

Looks like we will need to deny medical degrees to such institutes that confer standing to quacks.

Psychiatry, to the extent that it is rooted in psychology, has always been quackery.  Freud was a quack.  He was interesting and provocative, to be sure, but his underlying assumptions about what drives behavior turned out to be mostly wrong.  While the discipline has slowly moved away from Freudian logic, like most institutions it moves slowly as practitioners cling to the old paradigms to make a living.  Psychology as a discipline continues to search for relevance in a time when the physiologists have come up with better answers to the problems psychologists have failed to address adequately for over a hundred years.

They don't stop trying, as this article demonstrates.
