Project Psychiatry

Date: February 22, 1966
L. Ron Hubbard writes SECED "Project Psychiatry." An excerpt: "A psychiatrist today has the power to (1) take a fancy to a woman (2) lead her to take wild treatment as a joke (3) drug or shock her to temporary insanity (4) incarcerate her (5) use her sexually (6) sterilize her to prevent conception (7) kill her by a brain operation to prevent disclosure. And all with no fear of reprisal. Yet it is rape and murder. They pretend some sort of government position. Lord Balneil's Mental Health Association has no more official status than the Plumber's Association! If these violations of human liberty aren't checked we will soon see "thought police" and an end of individual rights. I find the material available on individual psychiatrists enormous. We do not care about their conspiracy to rule the world even if it exists. They are no stronger than their individual practitioners and they are weak. We want at least one bad mark on every psychiatrist in England, a murder, an assault, or a rape or more than one. This is Project Psychiatry. We will remove them."
