|Abstract||currently proposed prescriptions for psychiatry are practically impossible. The defective part of the profession is its leadership that in its very defensiveness sticks to the status quo, thereby owning the worst defects and impeding all possible cure. The current discussions of the matter are pretentious and thus woolly. The minimal requirement from the profession as a whole and from each of its individual members is that they be not defensive and clear. In this vein, I offer here preliminary discussions of propriety, of responsibility and of science.|
