How can a person write an entire book about the ‘War on Youth’ without even touching on the most damaging weapon of all? Biopsychiatry and the labeling and drugging of our children? 25% of our children are now on some form of psychiatric medication for ADHD, anxiety, depression, oppositional defiance disorder, etc. These flawed children are the perfect consumers for big Pharma. Instead of simply focusing on the school to prison pipeline why are we not paying attention to the school to addiction pipeline? Or the school to foster home or school to secure residential facility for ‘mentally ill’ youth who experienced adverse reactions to their cocktails of daily,deadly medication and who had plenty of help getting there from their exhausted, consumer driven parents?
