“Individual [Harvard law] students often ask teachers not to include the law of rape on exams for fear that the material would cause them to perform less well. One teacher I know was recently asked by a student not to use the word “violate” in class—as in “Does this conduct violate the law?”—because the word was triggering. Some students have even suggested that rape law should not be taught because of its potential to cause distress.” (Jeannie Suk, The New Yorker, 12/15/14)
“When you have medical services at colleges all over the country making psychiatric diagnoses and dispensing drugs, day in and day out, what do you suppose is going to happen to those students? They’re going to wear their mental-disorder labels like badges, and they’re going to think of themselves as vulnerable, and they’re going to look for new ways to prove how vulnerable they are. They’re going to say that hearing certain words can cause them to go into a tailspin…” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
The current official list of mental disorders hovers at 300. That’s 300—separately defined, treatable, and covered by insurance plans.
On a cultural level, this means the population is being tuned to the idea that they are vulnerable and at high risk. The right trigger at the right moment, a slight change in brain-chemical balance, and there it is: a disorder, with a title, a professional diagnosis, and the need for treatment.
This cultural programming—no surprise—has been a major factor in influencing people to believe they are victims. The obsessive focus on politically correct words that could offend and traumatize is, in reality, an extension of the psychiatric matrix.
A cascade of propaganda has been unleashed around the notion that people are helpless; they can’t rise above “triggering”; they must be attended to and given special consideration, even if their needs interfere with the interests of those who aren’t affected by “insensitive language.”
Hordes of little worker ants are busy digging out new words and expressions that could conceivably disturb the equilibrium of cherished victims. Soon, no doubt, we will learn that “a,” “an,” and “the” carry little violent packages of emotional electricity.
So let’s take a brief tour of the root: psychiatry, in all its glory.
In 2012, the Psychiatric Times reported that the latest edition of the bible of mental disorders, the DSM-V, would make grief a mental disorder.
Specifically, a parent who deeply mourns the loss of a child for more than two weekswould rate a diagnosis of clinical depression (and of course, drugging with one of the toxic SSRI antidepressants.)
This absurdity was even too much for some psychiatrists, and they rebelled. But the “experts” who were assembling the DSM-V didn’t care.
Well, of course not; there is a lot of money to be made by prescribing more drugs, in this case, to grieving parents.
The Psychiatric Times‘ editorial attacking this lunatic classification of grief-as-disease was written by none other than Dr. Allen Frances.
My readers will remember my article about the good doctor. He is the man who was in charge of assembling the previous DSM-IV. His team expanded the definitions of ADHD and Bipolar, so that many more people would be dosed with toxic and destructive drugs like Valproate, Lithium, and Ritalin.
Yet Dr. Frances, in a December 2010 Wired interview (“Inside the Battle to Define Mental Illness”), stated:
“There is no definition of a mental disorder. It’s bullshit. I mean, you just can’t define it.”
He actually said it.
What lies below this psychiatric lunacy is an entire industrial complex. It’s dedicated to brainwashing the public into accepting the notion of discrete and real mental disorders.
Yes, people have problems, they become frustrated and confused, they suffer, but the act of carving up behavior and thought into diseases is a way of a) expanding business and b) extending the overall matrix.
More and more, as a result of relentless PR, the public believes there are a whole host of mental disorders that not only intrude on their lives but require pharmaceutical treatment.
The public believes they are victimized by these diseases and can alleviate them only through drugs.
The public believes it is “humane” to accept the existence of these diseases, and we must all join together to “remove the stigma of diagnosis.”
The public believes they are at the mercy of arbitrary shifts of brain chemistry that bring on these diseases.
The public believes, therefore, that life itself is limited by the potential onset of “psychiatric illness.”
The public believes we’re all, to one degree or another, disabled.
The public believes what they’re told to believe. Therefore, the fictitious existence of discrete mental disorders becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
The Matrix op called psychiatry provides a focal point, around which are woven many strands of propaganda. The overall objective? A future world that resembles, to a remarkable degree, a Universal Hospital, in which the population, granted “free” care, lives through dozens of diagnoses of diseases and disorders, with (toxic) treatments—from cradle to grave. The eternal patient.
Psychiatry seeks to gain control and domination over the entire area of human behavior, through classification by labels and bogus claims of diagnosis.
Here is the kicker: There are no definitive chemical or biological tests for any so-called mental disorder.
This fact is stunning to people. They automatically assume psychiatry is a science. It isn’t. It’s a shell game.
I refer now to the PBS FRONTLINE presentation, “Does ADHD Exist?” A quite revealing exchange occurs between the interviewer and Dr. Russell Barkley, professor of psychiatry and neurology at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.
INTERVIEWER: Skeptics say that there’s no biological marker—that it [ADHD] is the one condition out there where there is no blood test, and that no one knows what causes it.
BARKLEY: That’s tremendously naïve, and it shows a great deal of illiteracy about science and about the mental health professions. A disorder doesn’t have to have a blood test to be valid. If that were the case, all mental disorders would be invalid…There is no lab test for any mental disorder right now in our science. That doesn’t make them invalid.
Yes, that does make them invalid. All of them.
Of course, if you want to make science into guesswork and empty promises and speculation and tea-leaf reading, have at it. Privately, and preferably on a desert island.
Go to a library and pick up the DSM-V. Search through it for one defining laboratory test for any mental disorder. See for yourself. There isn’t any such test.
Yet, on this unscientific basis, psychiatry and its allies have managed to transform society. They’ve staged an extraordinarily successful revolution over the past 50 years.
And now, on several branches of that tree, we are seeing the poisonous fruition of a cultural correctness that seeks to encircle freedom.
It will lose. It has already begun to lose. This political-correctness extension of psychiatric gibberish is sowing the seeds of its own destruction because it has gone too far. It has taken its “lessons” too seriously and made a circus, a parade of buffoonery out of its mission.
People with eyes to see will also notice that carving up real human suffering into 300 fictitious mental disorders is far more preposterous.
Language is an important tool of political control, particularly in the form of labels. Five decades of assigning labels to people’s brains and minds have an effect. Feedback loops are created. People invent “information” that confirms the label that is given to them.
Now we are talking about real triggers. The names of mental disorders are a form of hypnosis, in which the patient supplies most of the trance. He defines himself as he is “supposed to.”
Combatting the psychiatric dumb-show will be a lot harder than sweeping away the political-correctness language police. Psychiatry has the official imprimatur of governments, courts, school systems, university departments, and even the military.
Big Pharma sits behind it all, financing the institution of psychiatry and selling the drugs.
However, the individual can liberate himself from the whole nexus through insight. He can discover the truth about this pseudoscience. In separating himself from it, he gains separation from one of the most formidable networks that spans a society increasingly built on mind control.
Coda: In the last five years, psychiatric care has become one of the go-to fairy tales, whenever a mass shooting (not linked to terrorism) takes place. “If only the disturbed man had been spotted earlier and treated…” Indeed, Obama, who knows as much about “mental-health” as a deer knows about piloting a space ship, issued an order, after Sandy Hook, to create psychiatric community clinics all across America. This solution will actually increase the murder rate, because it just so happens that the most popular class of antidepressants (e,g., Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft) can and does push patients over the edge into violence, including suicide and homicide. Psychiatry is a Johnny-apple-seed operation for otherwise inexplicable and random killings.
