Insufficiency of the Criticism or Controversy sections Edit
The article states Szasz's view that The medicalization of government produces a "therapeutic state," which in an extreme case led to the Nazi genocide against Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, and other "undesirables," but offers no opposing point of view. This is unfortunate, as without any proof that Naziism was founded on the use of medicines to further its goals, the claim is outrageous. It is well known that Nazi genocide was based on the theory of eugenics and the myth that the "Aryan race" was superior, not on the use or abuse of medicine and not on the use or advocacy of psychiatry. The lack of opposing information may imply an effective point of view for the article, instead of maintaining neutrality.
The article states that Szasz co-founded the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, but does not balance this apparent good work with any statement of the attacks and other negative actions of the "commission" or the bizarre advanced beliefs of the Church of Scientology.
