The method by which POV Warriors fight at Wikipedia
1. Try to delete it.
2. If that fails try to delete it again.
3. Try to hide it — this works with text in articles where you stick the stuff you don't like in the most obscure corner of the article where no one will see it.
4. If you can't hide it, try to rephrase it in a way which is favorable to your side.
5. If you can't rephrase it, slap it up with tags to make it look "dubious" and "controversial" and "fringe."
6. If it's shown tags are unwarranted then make it seem controversial by "attributing" the text. I.e., every piece of text you don't like starts with "According to (if you can put something dubious here do it) X, ..." whereas every piece of text you agree with is given in Wikipedia voice.
7. If possible try to insert just plain ol' bad grammar, bad writing edits into the section you disagree with so that it will "look like" it was written by a 7 year old, i.e. not credible.
8. Wait a month or two and then try to quietly do 1 again. At worst you just go through the list again and "correct" anything you missed.

Evidence based psychiatry
I had an entry removed from evidence based medicine. As this is my user page, I am going to UN-delete it to here.
In the debate before the deletion this was written
" the financial links of the DSM4 panel are completely out of place and have nothing to do with the topic of the article. Sutefu "
I wrote back
"the financial links to the DSM are directly linked, because what happens after a psychiatric diagnosis? The patient gets a prescription to fill out at the pharmacy."
18 Billion dollars a year in antipsychotics.
11 Billion dollars a year in antidepressants.
10 Billion dollars a year in stimulant drugs.
39 Billion total. (Worldwide or just USA?)

In the years 1933 to 1945, Psychiatrists and Nazi doctors in Nazi Germany provided a scientific foundation for Hitler's racist policies. Dr Müller-Hill published a book on the subject in 1988 called "Murderous science".
In the year 2013, Amit Etkin, Anett Gyurak and Ruth O'Hara (Departments of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and Psychology, Stanford University), wrote a paper about improving the cognitive functioning of the mentally ill by using neuroimaging and neuroscience.
Author Robert Whitaker wrote a book Anatomy of an Epidemic that also questions the efficacy of psychiatric treatments. His main points are
- The rate of incidence of mental illness has increased from 3.38% in 1955 to 18.6% today (2012).
- As reported in 2006 the seriously mentally ill died about twenty five years younger than the population as a whole, often due to cardiovascular disease, substance abuse, obesity, or a combination. In previous research, it was believed the mentally ill had a ten year shorter life span (page 11 of PDF ).
- Studies document progressive brain volume reductions in psychiatric patients, when historically there was no noticeable pathological difference between a normal brain and a schizophrenic one.
To keep in my head when being sold lies.
- C = Cause and effect does not exist, once the patient is drugged or withdrawing from drugs. The psychiatrist claims the person is ill, when it can be argued it is the drugs effects on the person that is creating and continuing the "bad/wrong" behaviour. The doctors complain of the stupid people (a lack of insight), when they can create them (make people stupid) with the drugs they prescribe (for the psychiatric diagnosis). A feedback loop of seeking an external (drug) fix, for an internal problem.
- M = Money. Dr. Allen Frances stated 39 Billion dollars being made a year by Pharma Companies. Mad in America Film Festival Panel. Running time 48:03. Date (video) Published on Oct 24, 2014 .
- B = Brain Damage. Numerous studies prove the psychiatric drugs damage the brain. The brain is where reason comes from. If the person lacks insight into their "wrong" behaviour/actions, it can be from the brain damage induced by a doctor. This lack of intelligence can make people unable to perceive what their problem is, and if they themselves can not perceive the problem then they have no motivation or reason to change."Neuroleptics in Progressive Structural Brain Abnormalities in Psychiatric Illness." Madsen, A. The Lancet. OR the drugs damage the (physical) ability of the person to control themselves. See "Neuroleptic-Induced Supersensitivity Psychosis." Chouinard, G. American Journal of Psychiatry.
- D = Death rate. The mentally ill die on average 25 years earlier than the general public.
- R = Rate of incidence. Mental illness has increased from 3.38% in 1955 to 18.6% today (2012). Who is insane? "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." Believing in magical pills, instead of using reason (communication) and confrontation of perceived problems.
