Q: Oh, the irony of irony, does he get it?

https://www.yahoo.com/news/china-says-u-debate-over-174341592.html

 

A guy published a book about Trump and that has led to more debates about his mental health. 

 

'He' (same guy who banned Winnie the Pooh) says the books shows Democracy is dead. 

 

Because Trump couldn't lock up the book publishers for 'hit and run' without a trial. 

 

US govt can't jail people for questioning their leaders nor censor websites.

 

Is the name of a certain latin-america country still banned?

I think he's trying to discredit what terrifies him, hoping people in China don't watch how it's going down and get the same idea.

 

The idea of people openly calling out and exposing their incompetent leaders can't be allowed to get a foothold.

 

So, you tell the ignorant masses it's proof the other system doesn't work.

So what you're saying Scots, it's better for leaders to jail people before they write books about them. All hail China

Seems some folks over there in the States are setting out on one rocky road.  May seem fun to say 'obviously the guy (I've never met) is mentally unfit (I have no professional training in the matter), but he is unfit because I don't like him and being mentally unfit perhaps we can get him removed from office or at a minimum continue on with the public slander'. Ok,  fun may be fun, but we still shouldn't do it.  Who knows what that innocent little barb can lead to next?  Kinda like the alky thinking 'ah heck, just one is no big deal, just one.'

Careful be folks,,, don't wanna pull a Stalin here!

 

Political abuse of psychiatry is the misuse of psychiatric diagnosis, detention and treatment for the purposes of obstructing the fundamental human rights of certain groups and individuals in a society.[17] It entails the exculpation and committal of citizens to psychiatric facilities based upon political rather than mental health-based criteria.[18] Many authors, including psychiatrists, also use the terms "Soviet political psychiatry"[19] or "punitive psychiatry" to refer to this phenomenon.[20]

In his book Punitive Medicine (1979) Alexander Podrabinek defined the term "punitive medicine", which is identified with "punitive psychiatry," as "a tool in the struggle against dissidents who cannot be punished by legal means."[21] Punitive psychiatry is neither a discrete subject nor a psychiatric specialty but, rather, it is an emergency arising within many applied sciences in totalitarian countries where members of a profession may feel themselves compelled to serve the diktats of power.[22] Psychiatric confinement of sane people is uniformly considered a particularly pernicious form of repression[23] and Soviet punitive psychiatry was one of the key weapons of both illegal and legal repression.[24]

As Vladimir Bukovsky and Semyon Gluzman wrote in their joint A Manual on Psychiatry for Dissenters, "the Soviet use of psychiatry as a punitive means is based upon the deliberate interpretation of dissent... as a psychiatric problem."[25]

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
