Tom Cruise To Wipe Out Psychiatry

January 19th, 2008 // 14 Comments

Well, yeah. Then he can insure that no one ever gets to the bottom of his freakiness. Another video of Tom Cruise acting like a maniac and discussing his plans for world domination was just yanked from YouTube. In this one, Tom illustrates where he was really going when he took on Matt Lauer a couple of years ago. It’s a rant about psychiatry, and how it’s completely evil and a “crime against humanity”. Sounds like a therapist might have stolen L. Ron Hubbard’s parking spot at some point. In the video, Tom says “”Oh, I’m going hard on those guys, and their reign … psychiatrists. I’ve had…I mean…I’ve absolutely had it. It’s disgusting to me… No mercy… None… Psychiatry doesn’t work.” He also reminds his fellow Scientologists that they have the ability to “crush” psychiatry. If you’re in the mental health field, you better run for the goddamn hills. Tom Cruise doesn’t want you talking about your problems or taking a serontonin enhancer! Just pray to a volcano and all will be well again!

    Don’t usually come out here on weekends, but it’s a million degrees below zero and I’m working. So what the hell.

    Tom is right about one thing, way too many people are on medication. Most people should start with therapy/counseling services and THEN move to medication management, if necessary. Now schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and other SPMIs work a little differently. Medication seems to be necessary to manage those disorders. But therapeutic services should be step one for most people, and psychiatry services only if necessary. Too many people want a quick fix and think medication is the answer — not so.

    Tom, what do you suggest we do with Britni? AJ is actually in her face trying to get the chick on track…and you’re just sittin’ here talkin’ ’bout it. Where’s that action, little guy?

    SOMETIMES I see Tom’s point. My sister has struggled with anorexia and bulimia for over 30 years. For the last 17, she’s had the same psychiatrist — and I’m starting to think he’s a total quack. They have a very strange relationship. She’s completely dependent on him. When he goes on vacation for three weeks in the summer, she checks herself into hospital because she can’t survive without him. And honestly, she’s a LITTLE better than she was 17 years ago, but not much. She still falls into anorexic patterns at least three or four times a year, and does the same outpatient eating disorder clinic twice a year, which is supposed to get her eating habits “back on track.” I’ve asked her what her psychiatrist does for her, and whether it wouldn’t be beneficial to find a new one who might be able to help her once and for all, but she insists he’s the best person for her. It’s horrifying, really. I can barely stand talking to her about him anymore.

    So even though I think Tom’s NUTS — and that most psychiatrists are probably helpful, as are most drugs for major disorders — I know from personal experience how destructive the psychiatric profession can be, too.

    I miss the days when I could laugh about TC’s crazy pro-Scientology rants. Some good is coming out of Maverick committing career suicide: Scientology is coming under more scrutiny that ever before.

    I think it’s because they give her some scientology rice milk formula or something, and it’s not very nutritious, it doesn’t have anywhere near the nutritional value that breast milk or even regular formula does, so the poor kid has to constantly consume more and more of it in order to get any food value out of it. Plus she’s completely spoiled – they give her whatever she wants, whenever she wants it (they said so). So if she wants a bottle, by golly she gets a bottle, and post haste. I’m sure that’s great for her teeth, too.

    Granger – Someone who falls apart and ends up hospitalized when their psychiatrist is on vacation probably has more going on than just an eating disorder. That’s my guess anyways. Hopefully, she has a good psychologist or therapist on board, in addition to the psychiatrist.

    Funny stuff!

    @Granger:
    My ex-boyfriend was also dependant on his shrink. Had her for 20+ years, but she didn’t seem to make a difference. I think this is another form of addiction, being addicted to your shrink, and it’s something that is impossible for them to get away from. They don’t see how the person they rely on for help could be bad for them. It’s sad, but there’s really nothing you can do.

    I also agree that people are over-medicated, especially the kids, it’s actually quite sickening.

    But I don’t think that’s what Tom Cruise is talking about. We all know that the worst homophobes are the ones who are actually gay, right? So, TommyGirl “goes really hard” on the shrinks, because he’s the most psychotic, mentally disturbed, megalomaniac freak of them all.

    I’m amazed how they can still recruit new people when it’s obvious that this is a severely disturbed, possibly dangerous cult, based on a novel.
    But then again, a lot of people voted for the crazy monkey to be our president again for the second time around…WTF ???

    Ahh, something just clicked! Forgive my slowness if you’re already there!
    You know how in the 1940′s kind of period, if you were gay you were sent to a psychiatrist to try and get *cured*? Well when Tom says “psychiatry doesn’t work” he means personally from that very experience, which naturally duhh did nothing to prevent his gayness!
    Tom! You’re insane, yes, but your gayness is not the reason! You’re delusional and megalomaniacal!
    Why can’t you just *be*… and calm the fuck down?
    And take heart in the fact that the gays don’t want you and neither do the heteros. And hurry up and build that damn space ship. And leave.

    Psychiatry is absolutely necessary foor many people…medication management, I mean. My depression was killing me until I got on a simple well-know antidepressant.
    My daughter is bipolar and medication literally saved her life. End of discussion.
    Tom Cruise is a brain-washed celebrity; this is unfortunate because people actually hear his garbage being touted, and it might prevent someone who really NEEDS medicine from getting real help. I’m disgusted with him.

    I agee with Gail. Who the fuck does Tom Cruise think he is, to diagnose everyone in the world?? I went through a deep depression after my divorce. The only thing that helped me was meds & a good psychiatrist.I so wanted to kill myself. And I have two boys.Although I would not have gone throug with it, it was a terrifying feeling to be so low. I feel so much better now, but at the time I needed that help very badly. My kids also suffered when I was depressed. Cruise is an idiot.

    as a mental health professional, i have a very strong feeling that mr. cruise suffers from a variety of personality disorders… would anyone like to wager a guess as to which ones? he makes me absolutely ill – almost enough to call my therapist.

    Its happened, 48 Hours reported on Lisa McPherson who suffered a nervous breakdown and died from being sequestered to an isolation room for 17 days with NO human contact, consuming only Scientology “vitamins”. The autopsy shows her body was emaciated, scratched and bruised.

    They also reported on Jeremy Perkins, a schizophrenic who killed his mother after the Co$ persuaded him to stop taking his meds and put him in isolation too. Here’s the link to the story:

    My psych qualification is merely a Bachelors in B.S. from the University of Wikipedia, but I call a bunch of Personality Disorders: narcissistic, borderline, histrionic and paranoid. Oh and with meglamaniacal assholitary douchebaggery features.

    Loob, you are on to something for his personal experience for thinking psychiatry doesn’t work!
