The idea that psychiatry is a failure as a discipline because it has thus far only managed to be able to successfully treat certain conditions but not completely cure them, is chronically stupid.

A limb that is gangrenous to the point where amputation is necessary can only be treated and never cured. This isn't a failure of orthopedic medicine or surgery; the specific nature of the disease precludes the possibility of a cure.
