  1. Everybody hears voices of conscious, psychiatry turns it into a disease.
    Do some research on E. Fuller Torrey before you use him as a medical or scientific source.
    Functionality of a person determines if they are diseased or not.
    Animals go crazy in cages ” animals in captivity are affected by extreme boredom, lack of appropriate exercise, poor quality food and a lack of variety of food, especially in poorly run facilities.”
    so do humans.
