Psychiatry has been the enforcer of choice used by strong-arm governments for as long as it has existed. After all, psychiatry is the perfect cover to make targeted individuals do what government wants. If psychiatry is targeting a person, it can be considered a private medical matter and not a matter of the State or a police action.
As a bonus for the authoritarians, psychiatry diagnoses the targeted person and the diagnosis says it is this person who is sick, wrong, or out of step. Nothing to see here, just a sick person, move right along.
As a double bonus for the oppressors, psychiatry is able to administer powerful drugs and even electroshock that prevent clear thinking and, in fact, can cause a chemical lobotomy and other brain damage in the case of antipsychotic drugs, and brain damage in the case of electroshock. This tactic of drugging or shocking the targeted critic neutralises that individual.
The above was the subject of Children’s Health Defense Canada’s Sherry Strong’s interview with Dr. Peter Breggin, see the video below. They discussed how psychiatry has been used in the past and how it is now being used to target Covid critics and resisters.

As a way of showing how important and relevant this topic is in the Covid era, Strong began by briefly describing some examples in Canada where psychiatry has been weaponised to silence those who speak out against the official false Covid narrative:
* A Canadian firefighter was committed to a mental hospital by his wife, who had a senior position at Alberta Health Services. The wife told her husband she would leave him if he didn’t get vaccinated. When he refused to get vaccinated and was under threat of losing his job, she decided to have him committed saying he was mentally unstable.
* Dr. Mel Bruchet was imprisoned in a mental facility and drugged against his will for revealing that there was an excessive number of stillbirths occurring in Vancouver hospitals. (Further reading: Doctors Claim Stillbirths Exploding Across Canada, The European Union Times, 6 December 2021)
* Chris Vaughan, a freedom fighter, has been imprisoned in the Langley Mental Facility and drugged against his will with the doctor having total control over his life.
* Dr. Francis Christian from Saskatchewan was threatened by the Health Minister, whilst in the act of firing him, with accusations of a mental health issue because Dr. Christian was questioning the safety of Covid injections for children.

Dr. Breggin began with a history of the weaponisation of psychiatry. Probably the greatest example of psychiatry being used as a tool of oppression is the use of organised psychiatry during the Holocaust in Germany, Dr. Breggin explained, “and it was defended by the European and American psychiatric establishment.”
In 1920 they started debating and discussing how to do mass murder of lives not worth living. By the time Hitler came to power, psychiatry was prepared to step in and, on its own, create a so-called euthanasia program for its entire state mental hospital population and, working with paediatricians, many children in paediatric units.
“They probably murdered somewhere between 100,000 and 200,000 Germans,” Dr. Breggin said. Then Hitler cancelled the program because it was unpopular with the German public. “It was probably the only time he got booed in public, was around this issue.” So, Hitler cancelled the euthanasia program. However, he then incorporated it into the start of the Holocaust – the first head of the Nazi extermination camp was the former head of a psychiatric extermination camp.
Many people who were witnesses to the Nuremberg trials wrote that the holocaust may not have happened if psychiatry’s euthanasia program had not been allowed to go ahead so flawlessly, Dr. Breggin said.
A number of historians have pointed out that the scientific bureaucratisation of murder was a unique quality of the holocaust; but none seem to have given credit to the source. Bureaucratic, scientific killing ·was invented and first implemented by organised psychiatry. This is one reason why physicians Mitscherlich, Alexander and Ivy each separately declared that psychiatry was key to the holocaust and that the tragedy might not have happened without the initial euthanasia program.
