COMMITTEE FOR SANE PSYCHIATRY
1. If any staff member has a knowledge of press and an acquaintance with the conditions of the insane in institutions he or she should contact the HCO Exec Sec Communicator WW, Fred Hare.
2. We are forming a “Committee for Sane Psychiatry” that will be charged with the responsibility of bringing to the attention of the world the brutal treatment and sex orgies in institutions and drive psychiatry into accepting lawful regulation by Parliament and Congress. At this time psychiatry has no legal standing and conducts itself in a totally outlaw fashion.
3. The campaign is to be hot and heavy and well financed by us.
4. Case histories of brutal savage treatment are to be collected and the lurid nature of “treatment” is to be fully documented and exposed by the Committee.
5. The Committee is to take full responsibility for the campaign and has instructions to make it loud, lurid and effective.
6. The object is to obtain legislation by press campaigns and public support to make murder, mayhem and sex violation illegal in institutions for the insane.
7. The organization of the Committee is the responsibility of the ES Communicator for Dissemination WW.
