unspeakable — the anti-psychotic connection : san francisco (2012)
and yet, oddly, i feel like i have a lot to say about it.
medication labels come with warnings that say quite specifically : use of this product can cause homicidal feelings and suicidal impulses.
let’s start blaming the manufacturers of these poisons instead of simply mourning the shock and lack of humanity that someone who is suffering from the toxins running throughout their body can create. and maybe a little dose of responsibility should go to the gaming industry? i don’t know, because according to aldous huxley, those kinds of games are supposed to help us exorcise the demons of murder and violence and hate which ARE natural and come to the surface no matter what we try to do to stop it. but adding the DRUGS to the gaming equation was different than EVERYBODY using the same drug (SOMA). if all these young kids are buzzing on different "legal and lethal" drugs AND playing violent games, when will the illusion of reality come fully off and leave them blanketless in a cold world of heartless people?
enough is really quite enough.
this issue isn’t about stripping the citizens of this country of their weapons. or is it?
why aren’t the drugs being held responsible??!?!
"Yet the US does not have the world’s worst firearm murder rate. That ‘prize’ goes to Honduras, El Salvador and Jamaica, a blogger says in The Guardian. The US comes in at number 28, with a rate of 2.97 per 100,000 people, he says. Puerto Rico "tops the world’s table for firearms murders as a percentage of all homicides — 94.8%", he says, followed by Sierra Leone in Africa, and Saint Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean."
and those this is speculation at the current time, it’s important to read this and realize that MANY people are currently using this drug or have been on it!
"Another theory rapidly gaining ground on the internet, reportedly stemming from an uncle, is that Lanza was taking a controversial anti-psychotic drug, Fanapt (iloperidone), used to treat schizophrenia in adults, and contraindicated for use in children.
Age-wise, Lanza, at 20 years old, couldn’t have been called a child. Emotionally he could have.
US regulatory body, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first rejected Fanapt in 2007 after safety and efficacy concerns, then approved the drug in 2009.
An article by writer Geoffrey Ingersoll on the Business Insider website says Fanapt is just one of many drugs the FDA has "pumped out with an ability to exact the opposite desired effect on people".
Research on negative side effects suggests the drug can induce rather than inhibit psychosis and aggressive behaviour, and cause feelings of hostility, paranoia, confusion, mania, and a lack of impulse-control."
