I well recall a conversation I had with a Dr. Center in Savannah,* Georgia, in 1949. It well expresses the arrogance and complete contempt for law and order of the psychiatrist. A man had just called to inquire after his wife who was “under treatment” in Center’s hospital. Center asked him, “Do you have the money…? That’s right, thirty thousand…well you better get it or I’ll have to send your dear wife to the state institution and you know what will happen then!”
I was there doing work on charity patients the local psychiatrists wouldn’t touch. Center had forgotten I was in the room.
He looked at me and shrugged, “He’s sold his house, car and business already and he isn’t good for any more. So over she goes to the operating room. It’s just as well. The attendants got her pregnant and we’ll have to abort her anyway. So we may as well wash her out. Hell of a business to be in for some quick bucks and a few kicks.”
Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law every week over the “free” world, tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of “mental health.”
Terrorists never operated more effectively in any land with less interference and less outcry.
The evil is so great the public won’t confront it. 1984 here we come!1
* LRH is specifically referencing Dr. Abraham Center of the Savannah, Georgia mental asylum where much early Dianetics research was conducted in the late 1940s. Center was also noted for his utterly dismayed response to the miracles Dianetics worked on Savannah patients. In point of fact, the whole of the Savannah “charity list,” some twenty men and women in all, were eventually discharged from the asylum following LRH employment of Dianetics procedures. —Editor.
