Re: JZR Launching Demons Into Her Students?

Not just to patients, W.E. It's the Medical Model I take issue with, because it involves medication. And, major pharmaceutical companies are being sued because of the drastic effects of some of these pills. Further, it's not just people deemed to be psychotic or hospitalized for bizzare behaviour wh...

Hi There Why must it be demons? Isn't it PEOPLE who deliberately put subliminal symbols in advertising? Isn't it people who persuade us, at times seemingly against our will?

Hi, There. I think Ex is right, they only have the power over you that you give them.
