PACE – slogging away at recognition

What do you do if you’re light years from an issue, aren’t up with it, know little about it but do recognize that it needs to be presented?

Well you have to somehow post on it and hope that people who know the facts come in and turn the post into something worthwhile. Such is the case with PACE, Jeremy Hunt and CBT. Yvonne Leach takes up the story:

    The best antidote to psychiatry is still the late Peter Medawar’s rant on the subject ( in “Pluto’s Republic” )

    Why do people prefer non-physical solutions to problems?
    [ Meanwhile, in another universe, ask a priest, of any religion, this question.
    Oh dear. ]
