Scientology's sleep cures are enough to keep you up at night - 2019-11-17
The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) has a new article on its blog that deserves comment. CCHR has a harder time than other Scientology front groups who can keep their writings based on some truth in their chosen issue. Foundation for a Drug Free World can write truthfully about how using illegal drugs is bad. Youth for Human Rights can write about the importance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. But CCHR is stuck inventing its arguments entirely based on the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard.
The Remedy of Tiredness
The fraudulent psychiatric billing bible, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), has quite a few entries related to one form or another of "sleep disorder," many of which simply occur when a person is knocked out by some (legal or illegal) drug. And if a psychiatrist can't find the real reason for a person's troubled sleeping, they'll just diagnose the catch-all "Unspecified sleep-wake disorder." Psychiatrists assume that anything they can't explain is a "mental illness."
