This guy has totally gone off the deep end! Renowned medical expert Tom Cruise once again disparaged the use of psychiatric drugs, this time attacking the drugs used to help people kick addiction.
"I've always found the 'if it makes me feel better, it's OK' rationale a little suspect. “I think it's appalling that people have to live a life of drug addiction when I have personally helped people get off drugs."
During the interview he claimed that he could defeat heroin addiction in three days using the Church of Scientology’s detox program.
It’s took me longer than three days to get over the total and complete waste of the 8 dollars I paid to see “Vanilla Sky”.
What annoys me most about Leftists (and there’s a lot to choose from) is the belief that personal choices don’t play a role in life circumstances. Certainly, people don’t have to live a life of drug addiction…they choose a life of drug addiction. Just once I would like to hear a Hollywood do-gooder acknowledge the role that personal responsibility plays in life outcomes. Ever notice how they always talk about people who have made bad decisions, and are suffering the consequences of those decisions, in the passive? It’s as if these people had nothing whatsoever to do with the situation they’re in. The drugs, poverty, crime, whatever, sought them out and targeted them for a lifetime of misery and addiction.
“The drugs just took over the dude's life…it’s not his fault.” Please...dude made a bad choice each and every time he took a drug. It's his own fault he's addicted. I wish him the best of luck kicking the habit but asking the Tomcat for help will probably end up being another bad choice.
Here’s my theory about Scientology: These self-indulgent, aging actors have experimented with just about everything there is searching for fulfillment. Eventually, like everybody else, they get around to trying religion. But regular old Christianity is too mundane, too strict, and way too Republican. So in order to maintain their coolness and liberal “street-cred”, they dabble in strange, cultish, quasi-religions like The Kabala, The Unitarian Church, and Scientology. It will surprise no one that none of these “religions” holds their practitioners to any standards of behavior or accountability…how convenient for the anything-goes lifestyles enjoyed by the idle, rich Hollywood crowd.
How ironic it is that Tom’s “drug of choice” is very precisely an “it makes me feel better” cult/religion.
