Covid-19 and the Global Predators - We are the Prey

The Global Predators

Dr. Peter Breggin is the original medical consumer advocate. He called out corruption in the field of Psychiatry and revealed the downsides of electroconvulsive (ECT) therapy as well as certain psychiatric medications.

Dr. Breggin graduated from Harvard College in 1958 and later, Case Western Reserve School of Medicine. He taught at Johns Hopkins and George Mason Universities and was appointed to the National Institute of Mental Health.

Dr. Breggin is a man of not only intellect but moral courage, a trait that is vanishing  among many of today's NIH, FDA, and CDC physicians.

At risk to person and reputation, he spoke out harshly against the barbaric practices of lobotomy and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT.) Instead, Dr. Breggin has advocated replacing drug and invasive treatments with a more humanistic approach involving psychotherapy, counseling, empathy, and education.

After being insulted and threatened by ECT proponents at the American Psychiatric Association meeting in 1972, he fought back, sued for defamation, and WON!

Over the last five decades, Breggin has gone on to edit several scientific journals and write multiple books, including the bestseller,  Talking Back to Prozac. In addition, he has been featured on network news magazines, 60 Minutes and 20/20.

Dr. Breggin has been named “The Conscience of Psychiatry,” and a 475-page tribute by the same name was published to honor him.

Thus, it is fitting for Dr. Breggin to be the one to co-author the most incisive and comprehensive tell-all on the COVID-19 Pandemic. Breggin writes the pandemic was man-made, conducted at the behest of special interests, and poses the greatest threat in history to the human race.

Dr. Breggin and his wife, Ginger have written a masterpiece. At age 85, Dr. Breggin has authored his greatest work. This treatise will open the eyes of many, but for me, it did more. It provided a guide on what WE all can do now. It is truly a blueprint for what course an individual should take. The book became an instant bestseller on Amazon and has already sold more than 24,000 copies in the paperback version alone.

 Breggin’s Principles

 1) Never forget that Liberty is the framework in which people thrive. 

2) Join Dr. Peter Breggin each week in “The Dr. Peter Breggin Hour.”

3) Never be intimidated or shouted down.

4) Work for a more limited government and stronger local communities.  

5) Do everything we can to resist the global predators - especially the Chinese       Communist Party - and those in our government who collaborate with them.

6) Believe in a spiritual reality higher than ourselves - God, the ideals of Liberty and love, America, and the future of humanity.

 In short, Dr. Breggin advises a return to the values that created our great nation and what those founders stood for, including Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, and George Washington. 

"In God We Trust" is not a bad way to live, and it is far better than no moral compass at all, regardless of your theology.  Peter Breggin’s book, The Global Predators: We Are the Prey are SPOT ON.

He harkens back to the principles of RFK, those principles of Liberty so eloquently stated by Robert Francis Kennedy in his Ripple of Hope speech delivered in South Africa in 1966, his greatest speech - and one that applies today. RFK taught us many principles that harmonize with the life of Dr. Breggin.

RFK’s Principles

1) "The enlargement of liberty for individual human beings must be the supreme goal and the abiding practice of any Western society."

 2) "What is important is that all nations must march toward increasing freedom; toward justice for all."

3) "Few men are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence."

4)  "What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the       United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but is love, and wisdom, and compassion toward one another."

If we all follow Breggin's and Kennedy's advice, we will get through this Pandemic. We will live to see the bitter divisions and factions in our country resolved, and we will witness a return to civility and ethics and a return to the principles of the Hippocratic oath.
