Psychiatrists now say non-conformity is a mental illness: only the sheeple are ‘sane’

Psychiatry-ManualModern psychiatry has become a hotbed of corruption, particularly the kind that seeks to demonize and declare mentally ill anyone who deviates from what is regarded as the norm. This is abundantly evident in the latest installment of the industry’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM, which dubs people who do not conform to what those in charge declare to be normal as mentally insane.

The so-called “condition” for why a person might choose to resist conformity has been labeled by the psychiatric profession as “oppositional defiant disorder,” or ODD. The new DSM defines this made-up disease as an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” and also lumps it in alongside attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, another made-up condition whose creator, Dr. Leon Eisenberg, admitted it to be phony on his death bed.

As you might suspect from this type of open-ended description, almost any personal behavior perceived by someone else to be undesirable or strange might be categorized as symptomatic of ODD. Children who throw temper tantrums or fight with their siblings, for instance, might be declared to have this supposed mental illness, as might children who express disagreement with their parents or teachers.

Disobedience and defiance are common behaviors among young children, and parents have long dealt with such behaviors by exercising proper discipline. At the same time, not all forms of disobedience and defiance are wrong, depending on the authority involved and the action petitioned. A child who is told by his teacher to keep his unpopular opinions to himself, for instance, and who resists this order might simply be exercising his freedom to express disagreement.

But that’s the problem with categorizing conditions like ODD so loosely, as virtually any uncommon behavior can be declared to be oppositional or defiant simply because it bucks the status quo. Famous minds of the past like Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell, for instance, whose unconventional ideas might have seemed crazy in their day, are the types of folks who today might be declared to have ODD or some other type of mental disease.

An even greater danger to using this subjective approach in the diagnosis of mental illness is that it threatens to curtail freedom of speech and political dissent. The federal government has already tried to declare those who oppose its tyrannical policies, or who simply question them, as having “political paranoia,” a type of mental illness.

Characterizing non-conformity as ‘mental illness’ a hallmark of totalitarian government

Such outlandish abuse of the medical system for controlling popular thought is nothing new. Many authoritarian governments, including the former USSR, implemented similar mental health programs that categorized dissenters as having chemical imbalances in need of a remedy. Today, that remedy is often mind-altering, psychotropic drugs with devastating side effects.

“Psychiatric incarceration of mentally healthy people is uniformly understood to be a particularly pernicious form of repression, because it uses the powerful modalities of medicine as tools of punishment, and it compounds a deep affront to human rights with deception and fraud,” explains a 2002 analysis and commentary on the abuse of psychiatry in both the Soviet Union and China that was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law.

“Doctors who allow themselves to be used in this way… betray the trust of society and breach their most basic ethical obligations as professionals.”

    I received my B.S. at U.T.SW Medical/Dallas, TX. in Rehabilitation Counseling.
    I received my Masters in Counseling from Texas A&M in Community Counseling.

    I can tell you that Psychiatrists, basically, become psychiatrist to find out why they are NUTS!!

    I barely finished school because what they were teaching was incorrect and outdated.
    I had a hard time keeping my mouth shut. I finally had to sit at the back of the room vs. he front so I could hide the disgusted expression on my face as well as the “eye rolling”; and physically dropping my jaw because of what they tried to shove down our throats as “the truth.”

      Wow. With that said, it makes you wonder if all of the real professionals are now being replaced with clan members as to the reason a lot of scientists, bankers, etc. are being killed. The death toll for real professionals has skyrocketed for a reason, in my opinion. It seems that these clan members do not want us to have ‘quality’ in anything. So how do we get around it? How can we break their hold?

    First off, these ‘cult’ members love to turn things around to suit themselves even though their BS is there for all eyes to see.

    Slavery was over centuries ago yet these jokes for people keep trying to bring it back. Now Americans should have a better understanding of why our civil rights’ leaders such as Martin Luther King, Jr, Malcom X, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, etc. were either killed or gagged. Even the producer Spike Lee wanted to “Do the Right Thing”.

    These bi-polar orders of conformity takes away the creditability and legitimacy of those in which we actually use to have some form of respect. Their rules can change at any given moment. With these people, in present day, nothing is ever consistent yet they want to complain about the inconsistencies of others.

    Living around gang stalkers, for instance, is like living in the Twilight Zone. Before gang stalking, our lifestyles were more livable and free. After gang stalking, it seemed that our worlds made a 360 degree turn for the worse but at no point in time did anyone give me any instructions, personally, as to what was expected of me in regards to anything, Who can possibly understand the minds of these psychos who love to deal in ‘blind force’. It was and is as if they just enjoy setting people up for failure. They can’t possibly feel as if we are all mind readers so I will take ‘set-up for failure’ for 500. Alex because that is exactly what they do.

    If their lies were a power line, their negative energy would have caused a black-out a long time ago. We are attempting to live in a spontaneous combustion of wills. Everybody wants to be the The Big Kahuna.

    And our leaders will of course demonstrate they are sane by living in the smallest possible accommodation, and work as long as humanly possible for the smallest possible wages. And give all their surplus assets to the State to spend wisely for everyone’s benefit. The same as everyone else.

    In 1972 mentla health care workers told us homosexual behavior should be declared normal and pedophilia would remain unthinkable. Just now we are burdened down with 34 million AIDS infected homosexuals, each and every one of them demanding Social Security benefits. Worse, mental health care workers are now telling us pedophilia is nothing to worry about, little more than “inter generational attraction”.
