the world gone mad? Indeed, at no other time in the history of this planet
have more people been diagnosed 'mentally ill' than today.
Times have certainly changed - there's no doubt about
it. Right and wrong have become matters for debate. Truth is now relative.
Virtue is mocked and ridiculed. Religion battered and despised. Criminal behaviour
is now excused under the banner of 'irresistible impulse' and 'diminished
capacity'. Doors that once were open are now chained and double-bolted.
Once our schools were safe havens in
which our children could thrive and learn. Today, school campuses are commonly
the playground for drug dealers, pornographers, Satanists and constant youth
violence. Millions of children are daily drugged up because they have been
diagnosed 'mentally ill'.
Phillip Day's new book is The Mind Game. In it, the British political
and health researcher poses his central, awesome question: "What on
Earth is going on?"
