Can medication make people realise they've believed weird things for years?
this may apply to those who have been engaged in totally 'bullshido' martial arts or those that have otherwise just been a little nuts, and I do refer to the kind of meds administered by psychiatrists...anyone have any thoughts? (other than that I should take meds for starting this thread...)
N.B please don't trollshido this, I'm VERY curious about what people here might say!
How would you get people to go on the treatment? "Hi I want to give you a 'treatment' that will completly change your positive attitude about something you've invested a lot of time and effort into" ok.
I am not sure what medicine can really do with the mind but it is possible to talk reason into people it is just that it can be very hard and painful.
Especially if that person has done some goofy martial art for 10+ years and walked around believing that he was the real deal :)
Gong sau is a much faster and less painful approach :)
hypodermic hidden in umbrella point...three times a day untill otherwise directed?

Well say a person started meds for other personal problems and then had their little moment of clarity, no?

If a doctor wants to force medicate somebody then I think that person has to be a threat to himself or others..
But seriously How can a drug make people realize how foolish their beliefs are?
The real issue with loony martial artists is that they have been indoctrinated
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indoctrination ) into believing all the **** they do/say.
The only drug is knowledge.
Stay in school, kids. Don't question authority.
meds can make you believe stuff not sure if they can make you realized you believed crazy stuff
