We’ve known for quite some time that we live in an extremely dysfunctional, conformity-obsessed society. Creative people have long been ostracized by a majority of the population in a subtle act of punishing those who are gifted with the ability to see the world from a unique perspective. Free thinkers are called flakes, weirdos, wackos, misfits, screwballs, crackpots…
I’ve always been able to laugh at this foolishness as an adolescent fear of “not fitting in” that has become institutionalized in mainstream thought. It never bothered me much until recently when I came across an article about the psychiatric “industry” (talk about “crackpots”) having included what is ostensibly creative thinking as a “mental disorder.”
What the fuck is going on here?
The American Psychiatric Association publishes the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and has added Oppositional Defiant Disorder – or ODD – as a new “mental illness.”
Obedient, bland and devoid of creativity is the new “normal?”
This is the scariest thing I have ever read about something not (normally) associated with war. It sounds like a George Orwell novel about a fear-ridden society in a twisted, dystopian future in which everyone with the unfortunate ability to think for themselves and be able to distinguish truth from propaganda is locked up in a cell – whether it be in a jail or a psychiatric institution – so they can be “fixed” and sent back into society to live a pathetic existence as an incognizant lump of flesh doped up on products put out by the pharmaceutical industrial complex. And, the scariest part of all is that it appears to be directed mostly at CHILDREN.
Yes, the rulers’ well–trained monkeys have found another high-powered weapon of behavior modification to aim at our children.
This sounds like people will now be punished for being human. The obedient, dull-witted sheeple mulling around like cattle sniffing each other’s asses aren’t human anymore. They have given up on what truly being a human being is. Maybe, they are the ones who need medication.
And, at the risk of sounding like a “conspiracy nut”, I see too much cooperation in different areas of society involved in the systematic destruction of critical thinking to believe it is a coincidence.
(By the way, why do we never hear about the coincidence nuts – only the conspiracy nuts?)
Are we paranoid if we are actually being fed a steady diet of ignorance, obedience training and behavior-altering toxins?
This is so overtly aimed at whipping the population into a senseless gaggle of automatons that I find it painfully difficult to believe that it won’t cause an uproar of indignant rage if enough people hear about it. Where are the people in the media who haven’t been programmed by Fox Propaganda Inc. and the like to suck at the teat of Corporate Control?
Some of them think for themselves, don’t they?
I could go on ranting, but I’ve decided to keep it short and
This is the official “diagnosis” for Oppositional Defiant Disorder:
A pattern of negativistic, hostile and defiant behavior lasting at least six months during which four (or more) of the following are present:
Often loses temper
Often argues with “adults”
Actively defies or refuses to comply with “adults” rules and requests
Is often touchy or easily annoyed
And, my favorites, signs of questioning authority and above average creativity!
Wow! This sounds like…
…every teenager I’ve ever heard of. If a child didn’t question the random rules of people – especially of “people” obviously less intelligent and more easily controlled by the rulers – I’d be extremely disturbed. To question the authority of people who mindlessly obey the rules of sociopathic tyrants – even if they are adults – sounds like something I’d expect my child to do. To see it defined as an illness is shocking and horrifying in its implications for the future of humankind.
One area that will be impacted in a terrifying way is the already troublesome overmedication of children (as well as adults). This will allow dangerous chemical concoctions to be forced on our children. Already, forty two states have Involuntary Outpatient Community Laws that allow a judge to order a patient to comply with prescribed medication.
Now, some of these patients might actually need this, but a child should not be forced to take mind-altering drugs simply for questioning authority. This is nothing more than a disingenuous way of multiplying the effectiveness of an insidious system of indoctrination.
And, it is especially frightening considering that some of the side effects of these dangerous chemicals are increased risk of diabetes, symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, akathisia (a painful disorder which has been linked to murder and suicide) and a “spiritual deadening” in which patients have described losing “any sense of joy, of their willpower and of their sense of being.”
And, these things are better than questioning authority?
I won’t even get into the potential for tyrannical uses of this by police states. That’s another alarming issue to consider.
I’m not sure where to take this, so I’ll leave readers with this chilling nugget of mind-blowing truth about our wonderful, rules-obsessed organization, the American Psychiatric Association:
They once listed homosexuality as a mental disorder.
Feeling angry? Defiant? Annoyed? Do you want to question the psychiatric authorities?
