The renowned gadfly of psychiatry examines the growing practice of coercing individuals (especially adults economically dependent on others) allegedly in their own best interest. Demonstrates how moral man has been replaced by mental patient in modern society, how sin has been converted to mental illness as a way of controlling undesirables. Deals with psychiatry as a social control medium, how it disposes of those persons unwanted by society, and presents a compelling argument for limiting coercive powers of psychiatry to take away people's personal freedom and relieve them of their personal responsibility.
