Ode to the Devil

November 28, 2018
Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

Letter to the Editor:

I read where Director Foxhaven of DHS, made a speech of full implementation of mental health services for children. The Des Moines Register triumphantly quoted this "protection" would bring unanimous support through the legislature.

I was reminded of the Rolling Stone, Sympathy for the Devil lyrics, "I rode a tank, held a generals rank, when the blitzkrieg raged in it finest day." Whenever you get complete support, not only from the legislature but an effusive article like what the Des Moines Register played, then it time to get suspicious. First Psychology is not an exact science. There is a divide between the utilitarian nature of American psychology and the more contemplative European psychology. IE; behaviorism with its drug induced zombie's and the Existentialist lillies on the "Continental" side. You, dear reader say though, (harkening back to your settlers roots), if its a problem lets fix I,t just like a wagon wheel, bam its done lets move on. However, if you read Harvard psychologist David Cohen's book, "Your Drug may be Your Problem, he states its like blowing up a serotonin balloon. The first few times it works fine but the balloon loses its elasticity. IE Brain Damage. Lets not forget the vested interest illustrated by books such as Manufacturing Consent by Noam Chomsky; once corporations get their paws on this, their vested interest leads to such thing as kickback vacations for the doctors involved. No, their is not universal laudation in one speech given by the same agency that brought us the fiasco of the reuse facility in Toledo. Yuck yuck, maybe Steve King has a point about the Des Moines Register. That being said I'm getting my tank goggles on and headed to battle.
