It is a very bad idea to let someone on psych meds drive a car or fly a plane, least of all a passenger aircraft. Why?
Notwithstanding the efforts of the pharmaceutical industry to make massive amounts of money drugging the entire population, including – for God’s sake – our kids, psych meds adversely affect reaction time, mood, empathy, impulse control, perception, clarity of thought and so on and so forth.
They can send some people totally, lethally off the deep end, which is why virtually every violent rampage was committed by someone on or withdrawing from psych meds and why the use of psych meds such as Captagon and so forth play such a key role in the so-called “radicalization” of people who become terrorists and the combatants on the battlefields in the Middle East are off their face on the stuff (which explains the completely deranged behaviour of the ISIS fighters .
So if you want to play Russian Roulette with public safety, let someone on psych meds drive a car down a busy highway or fly an aircraft.
But what about people at the helm of entire countries? Or with their finger on the button of a nuclear arsenal? Do you think it is a good idea to hand the power of life and death over millions of people to someone so bad off they have to be medicated in the first place? And especially when the medications they are given set in concrete the psychoses they have and make them worse off?
So how many of our “Very Best People” are on one form of medication another? Nobody knows. But given the inordinate stresses and pressures of their jobs and the policy of the psychiatrists, the drugs’ pedlars for moving in close upon people on positions of power (through whom they push their ghastly Utopian nightmare on the rest of us) the number is likely to be high. It is easy to imagine some Minister or other, buckling under terrible pressure and over-work would be an easy target for some psychiatrist to prescribe a psych med to “take the edge off” or “help him cope”. But once a man starts on the psych med route, it is downhill from there on out, with a gradual or rapid loss of his marbles. The derangements cause by these meds would explain the apparent lunacy, poor judgement or simply psychotic conduct of our politicians.
I don’t know about you but I’d sleep better at night knowing my leaders are of sound mind and not subtly or grossly off their face on drugs.
We could make the world a better and saner place by demanding a Drug-Free political elite divested of all insidious psychiatric influence.
A campaign for such and mandatory drug-testing of those in positions of power and influence would be a wise move.
