The new scepticism

11 Jul

Why is it that whenever someone says they are suffering from suicidal thoughts, that the doctors are the first people to be mentioned? Why is it never friends or family, or church ministers, or the Samaritans? Or anyone else for that matter?

Do we really live in a society that blindly believes that all the answers lie in a one-stop medical shop, or in a pill?

For me, that’s as dangerous as putting all your faith in a homeopathist, a quack, or a faith healer.
