Vatic Note: For those of you who have not studied history, let me fill you in on some from back in the 30's under Hitlers nazi regime. What he did was exactly what you are seeing here now. First he used the law to repress his people. Whatever was not available, he then got passed to use against those who would resist him. Then when that did not work, they would call those dissidents in Germany "Mentally Ill" and throw them into mental hospitals to rot without a trial until Hitler was removed. The really bad ones, Hitler had arrested under pretenses and thrown in jail and those that were worse, he simply had them assassinated like David STory and Livingston, it looks like has been now taken out as well. Paul Wellstone ring a bell? JFK Jr ring a bell??? Various reporters, etc. Also go read the mental health section of the FIRST TARP BAILOUT. Remember, it was tied into the mental health bill they were passing and the definition of mental illness included such dissidents. Under the bill right now, they could arrest every single 9-11 truther as mentally ill because they are paranoid and see conspiracies everywhere according to that bill. Clever, huh??? We find when someone does not want to deal with peoples reasoning arguments over an issue they simply call them mentally ill. Now, its unlikely they believe that, rather its a way to try to regain or continue control over the person who is exhibiting independant thought and action. Then the anal retentive control freak resorts to using such slurs to cover for his own mental illness which is manifested by his anal retentive need to control everyone and everythng. They are usually anti-social and unable to function in a social environment with any kind of long term success. So that is why the evil ones resort to such tactics, and also to try and make observers afraid to show any independant thought. This is how we know our evil satanic foreign occupiers are seriously mentally ill..... they can't get control over us. So this is how they deal with it.
Are Independent Thinkers Mentally Ill?
Mark Nestmann, Lew Rockwell, provided to Vatic Project by "Before It is News"
Do you question authority? Fail to accept conventional wisdom? Lose your temper when you hear a politician make a promise that you know he or she can’t keep?
If so, you may be mentally ill, according to the most recent revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) . In this revision, psychiatrists hope to add dozens of new mental disorders. Unfortunately, many of these so-called illnesses target people who merely think or behave differently from the majority population.
A case in point is “oppositional defiant disorder (ODD).” DSM defines ODD as “an ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior toward authority figures.” Symptoms include losing one’s temper, annoying people and being “touchy.” Other “disorders” include antisocial behavior, arrogance, cynicism and narcissism. Sounds like many of my readers!
While diagnosis of ODD “victims” focuses on children, there’s no reason why ODD can’t exist in adults. Indeed, ODD can evolve into “conduct disorder” (CD), which DSM defines as “wherein the rights of others or social norms are violated.”
Uh-oh. So violating “social norms” is now a mental illness as well.
Let’s connect the dots, shall we? There’s a long and sordid history of governments using psychiatry for political repression. In the Soviet Union, thousands of political prisoners were detained in mental hospitals. There they were isolated from friends and family, and many cases, forcibly medicated. Nazi Germany went even further: it murdered over 180,000 psychiatric patients.
Laws in most states allow child protective services agencies to forcibly medicate your children. Indeed, if you fail to administer drugs ordered by a physician or have your children submit to vaccinations, you can be imprisoned.
As The Washington Post observed:
“If seven-year-old Mozart tried composing his concertos today, he might be diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and medicated into barren normality.”
The conversion of personality differences into psychiatric disorders, and the forced medication of children, is a dangerous trend. It is but a short step to extend these laws to adults who have a pattern of “negativistic, defiant, disobedient and hostile behavior toward authority figures.”
I’d prefer a different approach: institutionalizing the psychiatrists that came up with all these new disorders. Perhaps we could call their condition “overmedication psychosis.” And those of us with ODD, CD, or who simply don’t like the government telling us how to live our lives could breathe a bit easier.
