ART JANOV: Having been, for 47 years, our extended arm of a coordinated Neuroscience; Do not ask what you can do for Neroscience, but ask Neuroscience what it can do for you!
The title is a parody and stylish imitation of JFK’s, one of the probably most painfilld presidents of modern times, presidential inaugural speech, January 20, 1961. Few statements have stayed longer in my mind. It was a skilful, tactical, statement of a bright, picturesque, intellectual, whose family and life have fascinated us during generations by reasons, often, being doubtful.
Today “we” no longer speak of citizens, employees (workers and clerks), Human Resources (they are all “future antiques”) but a new approach is finding its way. The future generations will be asking to be given the opportunity to become PARTNERS in a new civic organism. While most of us are stuck in the “future antiques”, which we started to doubt, a host of American, Austrailian, and European free spirits are growing new successful socio-economic businesses (in both low and high tec), more adjusted to our mental and physical resources and less inhibitory.
I’m reading and being both mentally and physically horrified - though at the same time helped to understand the primal principles - by the findings of critical scientists about the extremely serious general situation in the mental health sector. Although the general situation for middle-age and older patients is regrettable, the overwhelming discloser is that millions of young people are casually being categorised according to APA’s DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual).
A growing number of scientists in the ranks of the intellectually dominated Neuroscience do no longer cope to stand by and watch how our youngsters are going through a long-term treatmeant with a high risk of a longterm predictable distorted mind, and often worse. Even within the scientific galaxy’s often “water proof” ranks, there are obviously “leaky gates”. Those are the emotionally aware scientists who do not want, the often conditional, help from the Pharmaceutical Industry, but backed by non-profit institutions bring their horrendous findings to those who want to find and read about them. They are out there!
"My fellow citizens of the world, ask what America will do for you, and what we together can do for the freedom of man"
