Almost any profession trading services for money can be loosely
compared to prostitution, but the field of psychiatry is especially
rich with similarities. Here are five.
Can you think of others?
Prostitutes are controlled by
human trafficking cartels - Psychiatrists are controlled by
drug trafficking cartels
If you think
big pharma is anything other than a criminal
drug cartel, think again:
If you think psychiatrists are "free" to practice how they
please, think again.
For one, when your entire tool bag
consists of drugs manufactured by pharmaceutical giants,
then who is in control?
People who don't want to bother
with real relationships frequent prostitutes - People who
don't want to bother with real problem solving go to
Emotional problems have real solutions that involve
therapeutic intervention, effort and personal growth.
is off to anyone traveling this path. Millions of people,
however, are not interested in doing the deep, inner work
required to let go of emotional pain.
These folks are perfect candidates for psychiatry, because
psychiatrists do not require people to learn and grow. Check
in, get your meds, check out.
Come back when you need
People get counterfeit love from
prostitutes - People get counterfeit solutions from
Speaking of "the whores on 7th avenue," Paul Simon wrote in
the song, The Boxer:
Lonely and emotionally desperate people might seek comfort
with a prostitute, but never find it. The prostitute has no
real comfort or companionship to offer.
The counterfeit love you find with a prostitute is no
different than the counterfeit solution your psychiatrist
has to offer. Meds are not solutions to problems, but a way
to avoid those problems (and their solutions).
When you go
to a prostitute seeking love, you actually end up further
away from love. When you go to a psychiatrist seeking to
solve a problem, you end up further away from real
Prostitutes have rules of
engagement - Psychiatrists have professional boundaries
Prostitutes have their rules - things you can and can't do.
Kissing on the mouth is off limits, as they consider it too
personal. There may be other rules as well to keep the
relationship in a "proper" context as a business
Psychiatrists have similar rules. For example, you cannot
ask them what meds they take, or how their marriage is
going, or what they struggle with in life. The professional
boundaries make it all about you, not them.
For all you
know, your psychiatrist could be
a psychopath and you'd
never know the difference.
Prostitutes pretend they want to
have sex with you - Psychiatrists pretend they understand you
Prostitutes pretend they are interested in you.
Psychiatrists pretend they understand your problems and know
what to do about them. They don't.
The vast majority of
psychiatrists do not understand the therapeutic process,
family dynamics, the unconscious mind, or anything having to
do with personal development.
Moreover, they don't spend enough time
with you to even get to know you on a superficial level!
