Does psychiatry lean left?

all the power they ever wanted over me and my mind accomplished, a feat they maybe couldn’t achieve on an ancient battlefield. but i have my meds and they keep me sane, so i guess i should thank psychiatry for that.

Not sure what you’re getting at.
But I guess it depends on the country and the treatment team.
Most of my treatment plans have been “let’s keep Miika doped up enough that they are too numb to feel symptoms so they’re not a bother”
while my current one is “Let’s give you a mild medicine so you can have a normal life and remain functional”

Sorry, but I have to close this. It has potential to turn ugly with the political implications.
