Civilizational Decay – An Observation


An Observation: “Mainstream medicine objectifies the body and its processes, and what [Dr. Taylor calls] medicalization extends this objectification to vice.” This medicalization or therapeutic turn is used to mainstream gender dysphoria, which includes all mental disorders under the rubric LGBT, which legitimizes vice itself. Why not then legitimize and mainstream schizophrenia or pedophilia? [i] In fact, why not mainstream all mental disorders, at least those listed within DSM-5?

Mainstreaming mental disorders is a regression from civilization to barbarism.

Holder of the Templeton Prize
