The inner meaning of Wheel of Fortune card

It seems now all mixed up in your house and also you do not know anything more; but in life all over again - and thoughts, feelings and events. Wheel of Fortune is gaining speed: beware intervene in the event, do not do any unnecessary movements, otherwise will carry! Strive for the wheel center to its unique fixed point - your own "I". Stopped and watched. Look at his eye problems bystander: the only way you'll find a solution.
This card falls people conscious of the lack of confidence in their abilities in the future; in such cases, it just gives advice and typed in italics above: your single most reliable support - yourself. Be true to yourself and everything will be alright.

21st century kids

Poem from a previous blog entry

When comes the age of reason,
Blessed be the rightful season,
Bow to unearned knowledge new.
Give back only your just due.

Less fortunate you say,
Didn't life look your way?
Amen to brothers all,
Bright the light before the fall.

Thomas Szasz: The Function of Psychiatry

Defining "medicalization" as the perception of nonmedical conditions as medical problems and nondiseases as diseases, Thomas Szasz has devoted much of his career to exposing the dangers of "medicalizing" the conditions of some who simply refuse to conform to society's expectations. Szasz argues that modern psychiatry's tireless ambition to explain the human condition has led to the treatment of life's difficulties and oddities as clinical illnesses rather than as humanity revealed in its fullness.
This collection of impassioned essays, published between 1973 and 2006, chronicles the author's long campaign against the orthodoxies of psychiatry. From "Medicine to Magic" to "Medicine as Social Control," the book delves into the fascinating history of medicalization, including "The Discovery of Drug Addiction," "Persecutions for Witchcraft and Drugcraft," and "Food Abuse and Foodaholism." In a society that has little tolerance for those who live outside its rules, Dr. Szasz's writings are as relevant today as ever.
