Dr Peter Breggin is the leading advocate for medical consumers. He denounced corruption in the field of psychiatry and revealed the drawbacks of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) as well as certain psychiatric drugs.
Dr Breggin graduated from Harvard College in 1958 and later from 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 who is not only intelligent but also courageous in character, a trait that is disappearing in many NIH, FDA, and CDC physicians today.
At the risk of his person and his reputation, he spoke out harshly against the barbaric practices of lobotomy and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). Instead, Dr Breggin advocated replacing drug and invasive treatments with a more humanistic approach involving psychotherapy, counseling, empathy, and education. .
After being insulted and threatened by ECT supporters at the American Psychiatric Association meeting in 1972, he defended himself, sued for libel, and won!
Over the past five decades, Breggin has edited several scientific journals and written several books, including the bestseller, Talk to Prozac. In addition, it has been featured in network news magazines, 60 minutes and 20/20.
Dr Breggin has been named “The Conscience of Psychiatry” and a 475-page tribute of the same name has been published in his honor.
Thus, it is fitting that Dr Breggin be the co-author of the most incisive and comprehensive revealer on the COVID-19 pandemic. Breggin writes that 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 85, Dr. Breggin is the author of his greatest work. This treatise will open the eyes of many, but for me it has done more. He provided a guide on what WE can all do now. It really is a model for the course that an individual should take. The book became an instant bestseller on Amazon and has already sold over 24,000 copies in the paperback version alone.
1) Never forget that freedom is the place in which people thrive.
2) Join Dr. Peter Breggin each week in “The Dr. Peter Breggin Hour”.
3) Never be intimidated or yelled down.
4) Work for a more limited government and stronger local communities.
5) Do everything we can to resist global predators – especially the Chinese Communist Party – and those in our government who collaborate with them.
6) Believe in a spiritual reality greater than ourselves – God, the ideals of Freedom 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 much better than no moral compass at all, whatever your theology. Peter Breggin’s book, Global predators: we are the prey are SPOT ON.
He returns to the principles of RFK, those principles of freedom so eloquently articulated by Robert Francis Kennedy in his Ripple of Hope speech in South Africa in 1966, his greatest speech – and one that applies today. RFK has taught us many principles that align with Dr. Breggin’s life.
The principles of RFK
1) “The expansion of freedom for individual human beings must be the supreme goal and the constant practice of any Western society.”
2) “What is important is that all nations must walk towards increasing freedom, towards justice for all.”
3) “Few men are ready to brave the disapproval of their fellow men, the censorship of their colleagues, the anger of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in combat or great intelligence.”
4) “What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hate; what we need in the United States, it is not violence and lawlessness, but it is love, wisdom and compassion for one another. “
If we follow all of Breggin and Kennedy’s advice, we will be going through this pandemic. We will live to see the divisions and bitter factions of our country resolved, and we will see a return to civility and ethics and a return to the principles of the Hippocratic Oath.
