About Letters from Generation Rx

Letters from Generation Rx is a 2017 documentary by Kevin P. Miller. It’s a follow-up to the 2008 documentary Generation Rx. Both these films feature case histories of families who got involved in the Mental Health System and paid for it dearly.

The more recent film was featured recently on the only TV channel I watch regularly, scientology.tv.

Towards the end of the film, a Canadian researcher Bonnie Kaplan is featured. She has been doing research into the therapeutic value of “micro-nutrients,” the latest term for vitamins and minerals.

When I looked her up to see if she had done any lecture videos, I found the site Mad In America Continuing Education. Mad In America was a book written by investigative journalist Robert Whitaker about the current U.S. Mental Health System. He has been featured prominently in several Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) videos about psychiatric abuses.

Bonnie Kaplan is prominently featured in a free “course” on nutritional treatments for mental illnesses. She and her colleague Julia Rucklidge go through all the evidence, from anecdotal to full Double Blind Studies, on the mental health benefits of improving nutrition. These are simple, cost-effective ways to improve physical and mental well-being in a community. They can be implemented by any Public Health agency simply by advising clients to eat better and take extra vitamins and minerals. The basic philosophy behind this “therapy” is supported by every sane doctor and healer who has been informed of its effectiveness.

The question is: (and both these academic researchers ask this question) Why is nutritional therapy not widely practiced (in the fields of medicine and psychology, and in our Mental Health System) as our first line of defense against mental problems?

Kevin P. Miller states his answer to that question pretty clearly in both of his films: The U.S. Mental Health System was established, and is operated today, to make money for psychiatry and the pharmaceutical industry – with tacit consent from the FDA. People in academia have a hard time accepting this answer. They think of psychiatry, psychology and medicine as “their kind” and cannot believe that trained professionals would stoop so low as to ignore patient deaths in return for industry consulting fees. What is clear to a student of Scientology, if not a student of life such as Kevin Miller, is that elements in the “professions” have always done this, and probably always will.

Our huge challenge now is to remove such persons from positions of power and influence in society before they complete their secret goal of tearing society apart. They are not well-organized, but they can muster amazing “convincing arguments.” And they are protected to a certain extent by the blind spot most well-intentioned people have on the subject of evil intentions. Look at the historical example of Hitler’s Nazis. How many were able to accurately predict the events that included the great war in Europe? These events were being threatened publicly in speeches by Hitler himself. Yet only a few could believe that he would actually go that far. Well, his people did go that far.

The best response this planet has mustered so far to the atrocities connected with World War II has been to draft a Universal Declaration of Human Rights, put it on a shelf somewhere, and hope the problem would go away.

Well, it hasn’t. I must say that it is Scientologists who are at the center of not only pointing out that there still is a huge problem on Earth, but also manning and funding campaigns to turn the planet around. Their story has remained largely untold, as most major media outlets are in bed with the criminals.

And in related news…

I don’t actually follow the news, for the reason stated immediately above. But I do buy fruit, and I do remember articles I have read about various subjects… so I was a bit surprised to find this tag on my Winco pineapple today.

Disney-and-dole-2019

Dole is one of a few very large food companies that operate in “third world” countries but are owned by United States citizens. These food companies have been implicated in a variety of criminal activities in the countries where they operated, activities that were only undertaken to improve or protect their corporate interests and profits. One such activity was the rebellion of Americans living in Hawaii against the native government (a monarchy), resulting in Hawaii eventually becoming a state, which reduced the cost of selling Hawaiian produce in the U.S.

More horrendous stories are told of what American fruit companies did in Central America to try to prevent local influence in their huge plantation operations. Typical was the ouster of Jacobo Árbenz from Guatemala in 1954, engineered by United Fruit Company in cooperation with various elements of the U.S. government. Árbenz had been the democratically elected President of Guatemala.

Disney produced a multitude of cartoon shorts in support of various U.S. government policies and actions across the world. Though I have seen some accusations connected with the making of “Saludos Amigos,” a 1943 attempt to improve relations between the U.S. and Latin America, in the face of expanding Nazi influence in that region, I cannot find any particular mention of Disney films supporting the U.S. “anti Communism” crusade against governments in Central America that wanted to curb illegal actions by American fruit companies operating there.

On the other hand, it is now a documented fact that elements of the U.S. government did collude with United Fruit and other companies to overthrow regimes that wanted to instigate reforms on the huge plantations. Many died during those struggles to give Central American agricultural workers a better life. Though the region has become more peaceful, except where the illegal drug trade has taken hold, I don’t know that those issues were ever fully resolved. That is another measure of the intractability (difficulty in curing) the problem of criminal influence in high places.
