There are several examples of political psychiatry in Sweden. In the end of December 2017, the high-ranking politician Lotta Back from the Swedish left party attacks the conservative politician Ann Heberlein, calling Heberleins argumentation ”a sign of mental illness.” The left politician works as a nurse in the psychiatric care. The fact that politicians cannot accept divergent opinions, instead calling it a mental illness is an obvious sign of a very unhealthy democracy.
In Sweden, there are numerous examples of psychiatry being used to silence uncomfortable voices and witness. The author of this text has been exposed to that, approved by politicians and authorites.
Lawyers in Sweden who work with family law and custody cases confirm that their clients are often accused of being mentally ill by their opponent. And the lawyers confirm that they can very seldom find independent psychiatrists in Sweden for their clients, resulting in children being either placed in another family or with the other parent.
And those who work for the state in Sweden are informed that there are no independent psychiatrists in this country. In case someone would leak information, he or she will immediately be diagnosed and force medicated by psychiatrists.
In short, there are several examples of misuse of psychiatry and even political psychiatry in Sweden.
Annika Möllström herself has been reaching out to international psychiatrists to back up her own custody court case for her children (the second custody court case actually as she lost her children the first time with this claim of mental unhealth), and that effort gave new insight on the systematic abuse of psychiatry:
– I met an international psychiatrist in another European capital who works for English-speaking embassies. When his/her clients show up, they call themselves ”Mr Jones and Mr Jones and Mr Jones” and when they talk too much, they are prescribed with drugs ”to put the information in the back of their heads. After some time with medication, they usually do.” Anyone who has been forcemedicated with antipsychotic drugs will know the effect. It is an awful threat and will quickly silence any uncomfortable truth from being aired, says Annika Möllström.
Divergent political views are not a mental disease
The politician Lotta Back who attacks Ann Heberlein is a both a high-ranking left politician plus works professionally as a psychiatric nurse. As a psychiatric nurse it is critical to be able to separate an opinion from a disease.
It raises a few eyebrows when a professional cannot distinguish between these very basic things. It also raises a couple of questions about her patients and the professional culture at the ward. Are their patients really suffering from mental health issues or are assigned to the ward as a result of their opinions?
Forced psychiatric care in Sweden is investigated by a civil rights organization
On top of this, Back is a politician. To claim that opponents and their argumentation suffer from a mental condition is something we often hear from other countries – countries that the West usually refer to as repressive. Eastern Germany DDR is one of them, although there are recent examples.
Sweden now belongs to the same club. Try to get a membership somewhere else. The United Nations has given the task to a civil rights organization to investigate the use of forced psychiatric care in Sweden as it raises a few eyebrows even for them.
”Deadly Psychiatry” is a book about the corruption in Western psychiatry
To learn more about professional critique of the Western psychiatry, please read the book ”Deadly Psychiatry and Organized Crime” by Peter Goetsche. The book received good reviews in Sweden, but was slandered among professionals.
And whoever dares to criticize the psychiatry in Sweden will have to expect the same treatment – slandering. Slandering is in fact the most obvious evidence of an uncomfortable truthteller and whistleblower. To slander someone to belittle them so systematically, is a psyops-strategy.
Scientific reports about high numbers of mental illness are likely biased and intentional
It’s also worth noting that the Swedish media cover their tabloids with scientific and medical reports about mental illness steadily increasing.
Considering the abuse of psychiatry to cover up politically uncomfortable witness, these reports are likely very biased and used to create the illusion that mental unhealth is very common. Media are used to channel this information, and they fail to criticize or question it. That kind of news is called propaganda.
Swedish taxpayers could likely use their money more wisely. And their attention as well.
Abuse of psychiatry is an urgent call to action
The abuse of political psychiatry, the fact that it is being used to slander opponents and the fact that media systematically fail to investigate the claims and scientific reports is no less than a very urgent call to action in Sweden with regard to:
- Freedom of speech
- Democracy – to be able to distinguish a divergent political opinion from mental health issues.
- Propaganda – to recognize how uncomfortable information/persons are belittled.
- The importance of independent and investigative press.
- Rule of law.
