Round in Circles

Some psychologists
and even some psychiatrists - defined
by their proclamations - now proclaim
that there is no such thing
as organic 'mental illness', that
'schizophrenia' is a chimæra
and 'bipolar condition' does not exist.
When, in the 1960s, Ronald Laing
suggested that societies are mentally sick
rather than people, he was dismissed
as an unhinged, transitory, clattery
fringe-figure on the wild side
of respectable psychiatry.
