Has brain surgery been made illegal in the US? I know even electroshock therapy is considered outdated and risky. For electroshock it’s at least a year long application process, and they don’t even use surgery but it’s still invasive because they use electricity which theoretically causes the brain to learn to compensate for damaged areas. I’m not sure if ECT has been proven successful, but I know a side effect is brain damage and memory impairment, but that is not the intention–the real intention is to change the brainwave activity I think. For example there are meridian stimulators which are a new technology that send pulses to different areas of the brain. It’s non-invasive and less restricted.
Surgery for schizophrenia hasn’t been done since the late 70’s. It’s my understanding that it’s frowned upon to treat a medical condition inappropriately and schizophrenia is a genetic brain illness, that is not caused by the brain but the genes of a person AKA surgery won’t even work. You can’t fix someone’s brain it’s not that easy. We hardly know which chemical receptors to activate or antagonize or agonize in order to correct the imbalance that is a result of the genetic malfunction…
It’s morbidly wrong, much like what Hitler did. Hitler also sent the mentally ill to concentration camps as well as experimental labs. This is where some of the inspiration came for these treatments during the time a little before the Cold War when the Nazis infiltrated the CIA and were inducted into military operations for their prior knowledge of weapons and tactics. These people were recruited to find out how to protect Americans, and instead it became a method to destroy us all.
Brain surgery and any other sort of mind control technique is not the same as someone who is paranoid of taking a pill. An educated doctor would realize that it’s human to be paranoid of taking a pill that shifts brain chemistry, because any insightful person knows that we live in a violent, and often oppressive world. Humanity needs to learn from consequences and not repeat mistakes. The same goes for the kinds of war Hitler started to create the Nazi Empire. Sometimes I feel like the U.S. has been attempting a Nazi type world invasion but I think most countries do. America is the least invasive and most freedom loving country, at least in my mind. But arrogance is our main problem, because we’re all freedom loving americans and no one has the right to take that away from us.
