With the holidays and all the travel of I have been doing with THRIVE, I find myself missing being more in touch with this amazing network. I will be starting to share some reflections and my interpretation of the news on a few of the prominent issues of these times.

First I want to address the truly sad tragedy of the Sandy Hook massacre of children and teachers… Tears had barely begun to flow before the panderers started trying to use it to obscure critical thinking and take away more rights. With the utmost compassion for all the victims and their families, I invite us to – in their honor – look more deeply into underlying mental health, security and human rights issues.

First, Adam Lanza was reportedly on an anti-psychotic medication called Fanapt.

Here is a completely mind-boggling, but still only partial list of recent incidents correlating the use of mind altering SSRI, “anti-depressant” type drugs with mass violence.

Here are two videos conveying the same message:

I have seen the behavior of people I know go totally bizarre on these drugs and get even worse when they try to break the addiction to them. The film The Marketing of Madness goes into great depth explaining and documenting this dangerous phenomenon.

I know one renowned psychiatrist, Dr. Rima Laibow, who has effectively treated mental illness in young people without using these pharmaceuticals. In this video, she mimics the viral YouTube clip “I am Adam Lanza’s Mother” to speak generically about the challenge of mental health care by truly listening to and interacting with disturbed young people.

Second, regarding so-called “gun-control”… I personally underwent a dramatic transformation in my understanding over a decade ago. For much of my life, I assumed that if we just get rid of guns, there will be much less violence and people will be safer. I finally encountered facts that made me think deeper.

Here are some hard facts that need to be integrated into any truly comprehensive critical thinking about the issue.
