Logic is the subject of reasoning. It is the ability to think clearly, make appropriate connections, and reach correct conclusions.
When an individual’s reasoning is sane, they are able to recognize the differences, similarities and identities between the things they observe.
When an individual’s reasoning is insane, they are unable in greater or lesser degree to recognize differences, similarities and identities.
One common failing is someone’s inability to tell the difference between a fact and an opinion. Wherever you have these kinds of thought confusions, everyone around is at risk, since misunderstandings tend to pile up and create hostilities.
Logical reasoning is a form of thinking in which premises and relations between premises are used in a rigorous manner to infer conclusions that are entailed (or implied) by the premises and their relations.
Here are three interesting ways to attempt to solve a logical problem:
1. The Full Sweep
Examine each and every possible combination of factors and outcomes.
2. The Fell Swoop
Come to a realization of the final solution all at one time, in one sudden leap of insight. “Fell” in this sense means “fierce” or “vigorous.”
3. The Frail Swipe
A half-hearted attempt, likely failing to reach a fully satisfactory conclusion.
Faulty psychiatric Reasoning
The psychiatric biological, medical model is the view that mental illness is a medical disease of the brain. It is faulty reasoning because it is not generally true. This faulty reasoning leads to an inability to cure insanity and restore sane and logical thought to those whose thought processes have been compromised.
The only evidence that makes mental illness a disease are the symptoms used by psychiatrists to label someone mentally ill. But the symptoms used to diagnose someone as mentally ill (such as despair, hopelessness, sadness, or guilt) are not biological markers. There is no evidence that these expressions are physical in nature. There is however ample evidence that such symptoms are educational, emotional, ethical, or spiritual in nature.
As the ultimate in irony and arrogance, psychiatry’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) includes religion as a category of mental illness: “Religious or spiritual problem.”
Unlike medical diagnoses that convey a probable cause, appropriate treatment and likely prognosis, the disorders listed in the DSM are terms arrived at through peer consensus — a vote by American Psychiatric Association (APA) committee members. In other words, there is no objective science to them.
While it is true that people can have serious problems in life, psychiatrists turn these unwanted emotions and behaviors into brain diseases, without a shred of proof, which psychiatrists readily admit.
To re-define Man’s problems and criminal conduct in medical or biological terms is a trick to substitute illogic for logic, making it virtually impossible to come up with effective treatments for insanity — meaning that the psychiatric industry has a permanent pool of patients and is forever dependent upon government funding to keep it going.
It’s time to solve the problems of mental trauma with a Full Sweep or a Fell Swoop, instead of the psychiatric Frail Swipe.
Persons in desperate circumstances must be provided proper and effective medical care. Medical — not psychiatric — attention. Good nutrition, a healthy, safe environment, activity that promotes confidence and effective education will do far more for a troubled person than drugging, electric shocks, brain surgery, involuntary commitment, restraints, and other psychiatric atrocities.
