A Proposal to treat Insanity by Spiritualsm

Unlikely as it may seem Marc Demarest has tracked down a lovely 1857 pamphlet propounding this. It can be accessed from here.

The underlying idea is likely to have merit, indeed in healing work I have seen fearful and troubled minds respond swiftly and re-adopt a 'normal' outlook.

It might be difficult to define 'insanity' - or 'sanity' even. - much easier to simply apply the energy.

We must all be 'insane' if our notions were to be viewed from other Earth standpoints: - butchery of animals for 'sport', two-way terrorism, thieving and killing to gain material baubles, bestowing grand titles on each other, political deceit being 'honoured', grotesquely be-robed ecclesiastics - etc. I wonder what the Australian Aboriginal makes of that lot?
Huxley's 'Brave new world' has a pertinent point, as does Burn's 'To a Louse'.

Some of the ailments diagnosed as insanity back then are lifestyle choices today. Others have been dismissed Healing does no harm where it does no good. The same cannot be said of some allopathic nostrums today.
