Yep, Mr. Moore refers to the psychotropic establishment as a bunch of criminals. Even Michael Moore can be right on occasion. Let us not forget Eli Lilly and its cover-up [2] of its Prozac and that drug’s very strong link to violent and suicidal behaviour. From an old Forbes article: [3]

Lilly was strong at the time Taurel took over. It had been riding Prozac since 1987, with profits peaking at $3 billion in 2000. Then, in 2001, two years before anticipated, generic-drug manufacturer Barr Pharmaceuticals wrested Lilly’s Prozac patent away. Lilly lost 90% of its Prozac prescriptions over a year and $35 billion of its market value in a single day. The stock still trades 30% below its Prozac high. Lilly’s profits dropped 9% between 2001 and 2003, to $2.5 billion.

For years now, the alternative media (including me [4]) has been covering the sick travesty of America as the world’s leader in psychotropic pill popping [5]. Depressed? Write a prescription. Welcome to America, a zombie milquetoast nation.

As as I have reported before, even pets aren’t immune to our cultural ills. They are becoming zombies, too [6].
