One day, when sanity returns to the world, we will be able to tell a future generation, “We were here when science lost touch with reality. We were here when the medical profession lost its mind. We were here when feelings displaced biology.”
Yes, we will get to tell the shocking story unless, of course, our society completely falls apart and self-destructs. Otherwise, we will get to bear witness to these days of societal madness and insanity.
Not that long ago, there was a time in our history when lobotomies were considered “miracle cures” for mental illness.
As explained in a 2011 BBC report, “Surgeons would drill a pair of holes into the skull, either at the side or top, and push a sharp instrument—a leucotome—into the brain.
“The surgeon would sweep this from side to side, to cut the connections between the frontal lobes and the rest of the brain.”
Indeed, “These spikes once represented the leading edge of psychiatric science. They were the operative tools in lobotomy, also known as leucotomy, an operation which was seen as a miracle cure for a range of mental illnesses.”
How do we view this barbaric procedure today?
