Xing Shiku tortured 'with chains' and 'electric shocks' in psychiatric hospital
The Chinese government routinely uses psychiatric confinements as a tool to control dissidents, a Chinese human rights group said on Monday.
Chinese Human Rights Defenders (CHRD) highlighted the case of Xing Shiku, a Chinese petitioner who has been involuntarily detained at the Daowai District Psychiatric Hospital in Harbin City since February 2007.;
CHRD says Xing was arrested in Beijing for filing complaints to government authorities about corruption and labor violations that occurred due to the privatization of the state-owned company where he once worked. He was then immediately transferred to the psychiatric hospital in northeast China.

Fauxchohontas is watching this closely.
Common practice in the old USSR. You must be nuts if you object to the Worker’s Paradise.
Unbelievable! Can this kind of hing really happen? I’m shocked. Needless /S
Are you now or have you ever been? Whack. Repeat until proper answer given. Whack.Whack.
“Common practice in the old USSR. You must be nuts if you object to the Workers Paradise.”
Precisely. That’s a common fixture of progressive regimes the world over, and throughout history. Dissent is criminalized, and when the elites realize that approach has diminishing returns, they paint opposition as a mental illness.
It does not take a significant leap of rationale for a leftist to justify frog-marching the opposition off to the asylums and the reeducation camps. We already have progressives here in the west trying to reclassify skepticism of the messianic government into a mental illness, it doesn’t take much more than that for the leftists to start building camps.
WE DO THIS ALSO.
We not only force all manner of INNOCENT people to be medicated, but every year we send very many people to BRAIN-WASHING CAMP, aka “anger counseling” etc etc etc.
I love the OLD usa, but this new one is sounding more and more and more like our former enemies.
Stasi-er than the STASI, Mao-ier than Mao.
Maybe so, but sometimes the patient outwits the so called experts and shrink doctors. or as in wartime or CIA interrogations the patient gets into the agents minds instead.
Controlling CO2 emissions can also be seen as a green justification for death camps and mass murder.
they paint opposition as a mental illness.
It is starting to get that way here; Gore Bull Warming, disagreeing with the homosexual agenda, or the union agenda if you are in WI....
I don't recognize my country any more.
At our current trajectory, this is where we are heading.
libtards already want to do this. just ask terrorist bill ayers.
I’ve been whacked but not in the way you imagine.
In a sense, we’re already there. What are public schools but poorly disguised reeducation facilities? The boys are emasculated and drugged into submission, and the girls are indoctrinated into militant feminism. Darwinian evolution, global warming, and “Susan has two daddies” are all par for the course.
Is it any wonder that the left so vilifies homeschooling? How is a regime to build the next generation of useful idiots if those pesky parents keep them away?
We already know that the NSA is watching us. It really is only a matter of time before they start using that information...if they already haven’t.
Coming to an Amerika near you.
Al Gore is ONE STEP from demanding that people be “evaluated” and then “treated” if needed, if they have a problem with his position on Global Warming.
Anyone that thinks the Dems wouldn’t do something like that here needs to spend some time studying world history.
That’s a given.
Yes-—the Germanization of our psychology departments——everything is controlled by pills (and God is Dead)...every “emotion” like desire, anger, depression, etc.
Good and Evil and Free Will does not exist (as Fichte predicted after a generation of brainwashing). The Christian concepts (worldview) of Good and Evil and “Free Will” is being completely erased in children, leaving the idea that addictions are NOT character flaws.....no—you have no ability to control anything or change without the use of drugs.
Fichte stated after the brainwashing of children (Common Core/Goals 2000) children will believe any irrational concept (they will not be able to use Reason), like snow is black.
The Russians, and other dictatorships, are also known to do this. In fact, the Soviets imprisoned many dissidents this way, and the Russian Federation has followed suit.
