The Dark Side - Cold War Psychiatric Experiments

In the course of pursuing my preoccupation with the antics of psychiatry and the drug industry, I occasionally stumble onto stories about the dark underbelly of the beast. Even I sometimes am tempted to stop what I'm reading and quietly look the other way.

The CIA's MKULTRA experiments during the cold war were among history's most frightening footnotes, and they definitely helped to set up the environment we have today with school kids on psychiatric drugs shooting up their classmates and themselves.

Read this story in Freedom Magazine about a woman in Canada who finally achieved some closure for her experience as a psychiatric guinea pig in this program; repeatedly electroshocked, heavily drugged and subjected to techniques that can best be labeled as torture.
