Determined to speak up about America’s crumbling higher education system, three students at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism rallied the voices of an indebted generation. The trio of aspiring journalists—Alex Lancial, Tara Molina and Jake Stein— produced a documentary entitled “Scholarslip”. The 26-minute production examines the student debt crisis in the United States and delves into issues local to Arizona. Illustrated through the voices of student debtors as well as university and government policymakers, “Scholarslip” explores five critical issues: increasing costs of tuition; deteriorating quality of higher education; diminishing value of a college degree in the job market; student dependence on state and federal financial assistance; and the effects on personal lives and aspirations. Lancial, Molina and Stein entered and documented the lives of three university students, each experiencing different personal and financial struggles yet sharing a common desire to pursue a college degree. Also featured are testimonies from John Kavanaugh, a representative in the Arizona legislature; Kent Hopkins, the Vice Provost of Enrollment at Arizona State University; and Natalia Abrams, a co-founder of Student Debt Crisis and Occupy Colleges. “Scholarslip” presents a generation under siege, challenging a seemingly out-of-control system that is sending millions into interminable debt.

The definitive documentary on psychotropic drugging—this is the story of the high-income partnership between drug companies and psychiatry which has created an $80 billion profit from the peddling of psychotropic drugs to an unsuspecting public.  But appearances are deceiving.  How valid are psychiatrists’ diagnoses—and how safe are their drugs?  Digging deep beneath the corporate veneer, this three-part documentary exposes the truth behind the slick marketing schemes and scientific deceit that conceal a dangerous and often deadly sales campaign.

    Those with depression should consider a natural alternative: St. John’s Wort. The ancient Greeks used it to help those with depression and mood issues, and the active ingredient, hypericin, comes from a flower. It’s also about $8 for a month’s supply – so Big Pharma’s not making any money. My cousin’s psychiatrist recommended Welbutrin. He refused it and told the psychiatrist that he was going to use St. John’s Wort. The psychiatrist acted like it was just as good as the Welbutrin without all of the side effects. I wonder why he even recommends the Welbutrin? Kickbacks from the drug companies?

    Don’t be fooled by this documentary. It’s tone and thrust might pursuade the naive as It may sound and look totally authentic but it was made by the Citizen Commission on Human Rights who are a front group for the Church of Scientology (COS). They hate psychiatry and psychiatrists, not for the lack of applied science or indeed drug company affiliations but because they are in competition with the (imho) lunatics running COS for mind control techniques. Of course, the COS doesn’t explicitly state this but anyone familiar with this pseudo church will be aware of Hubbard’s nonsense.
    Whilst every source dealing with COS and psychiatry has to be treated with some caution, Wikipedia has an article detailing COS’s poisoned and jaundiced viewpoints – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citizens_Commission_on_Human_Rights
    Factor in these comments and the fact that this documentary’s stated facts are unproven (something the COS continually and hypocritically allege about the medical industry) and suddenly many of the allegations fall away. BTW I have no connection whatsoever with the medical industry or profession. I just despise the way the COS goes about slagging off a whole industry for its own nefarious purposes. Sometimes, you have to shoot the messenger.
