The American Psychiatric Association (APA) has criticized the actor Tom Cruise, following remarks he made on US TV attacking psychiatric medicine. Cruise called psychiatry a "pseudo science". The APA answers saying that "Rigorous, published, peer-reviewed research clearly demonstrates that treatment of mental illness works,"
Rael made the following comment: on this subject Tom Cruise and Scientology are right ! As an example, there is no need to give psychiatric medicine to children with attention deficit disorder who are just bored by the poor content of traditional education. For sure many geniuses were having this disorder ...and nobody would say that giving drugs to Einstein, Beaudelaire, or Mozart to make them "normal" would have been a good idea.
Geniality is always built on abnormality. Humanity needs abnormality as it is the most beautiful expression of difference.
