    1. It is about money making racketeering, they call you a criminal to steal your money and contain you, making you work, while they collect money off of you. It’s not about healing a sick or disconnected person, never was nor will be. Too much money in it bossing people around and coercing them.

    2. Johann Hari's Books improved my life more than any drug has because they gave me hope that people could understand what they themselves hadn't experienced.

    3. First sentence has a moronic interrogative.
      Listening to lisping twats like Johann trotting out clichés is one of the top ten causes of depression …
      It’s ironic that a gay bloke – who purports to understand what it is to be alienated and disconnected – should seem so axiomatic and irritatingly normative…
      And best to steer clear of bitchy little gibes like Marianne Faithfull is ‘actually bedder (English people are losing their Ts these days) than Mick Jagger’ in a supposedly unfrivolous lecture on addiction.

    4. This is annoying, where's the end? I don't want to subscribe somewhere….give my info to some place just to see the end….

    5. Why spoil all your good work by making widespread judgements on every UKIP candidate?
      Are you saying they have/are breaking the law?
      I would appreciate it if you currently your political slurs, they offend me and cause damage to innocent individuals, thank you.
      I still respect your work, I just noticed nobody had complained about the handful of deadpan comments I've heard you make in videos. The accusiations are wild cards, have no bearing on the subject matter and I feel are totally unnecessary.

    6. thank you is all ican say, and i am on the rise to help change societies thought process! I approve this video! many blessings to you !!

    7. Johann is doing so much for women and men who experience life through addiction, depression, anxiety etc. He backs up his writing with science, personal experience and compassion. Love it!

    8. Thank you LondonReal, honestly your is among the most inspiring channel in the entire YouTube. You are doing a considerable effort to overwhelmed your audience with much more valuable stuffs.

    9. I just discovered this man 3 days ago, I ordered his book and cannot believe the amount of research he has done to expose the pharmaceutical companies for the leeches they are. He proves in his book the " low serotonin myth". I take anti -depressants, its been 4 hours. I am going to wean myself off of them , this man's book inspired me.

    10. They have made money off ones Misery. Why would'nt the system want to keep it that way? It is Job security. Check out Insurance $$$$$$$$$$$$$$, Prison, A&D treatment centers. Read Multiple years of Dissertations regarding human studies, no matter the Era, or terminology used of clinical specifics. Bottom line, it is cut and dry. All goes back to Secrets kept is imprisonment, for %, whose trauma , dysfunction who insist on siding with the offender , can result in ones, death, and the perpetrator lives free and ease. What lie and bondage have you been bound by? The cost give ones power away, should never be paid.

    11. Wow… learning about this stuff gives me drive, passion and purpose in life. As such, shouldn't be be trying to put this information in a pill and sell it as antidepressants?

    12. You HAVE to watch the second part of this interview on London Real site. The best hours 🙂

    13. I highly recommend chasing the scream btw, a touching, well written and thought provoking book.

    14. You are a G brian! These interviews are incredible and always eye opening ✨😍 Plant based inspiration 💚💚
