It was called the anti-psychiatry movement and it was spearheaded by shrink R.D. Laing. Hope the crazies roost on Bloomberg’s townhouse.

I beg to differ - even a cursory reading of Laing, et al will show that their alternative approach to mental illness had nothing whatsoever to do with putting people on medication as a treatment, remedy, cure or policy. Quite the opposite - their approach had to do with a redefinition of what constitutes mental illness. I am not endorsing their views, but the last thing their school of thought called for was labeling people as “crazy”, drugging them, and then giving them no theraputic treatment.
