(NaturalNews) The industry of modern psychiatry has officially gone insane. Virtually every emotion experienced by a human being -- sadness, grief, anxiety, frustration, impatience, excitement -- is now being classified as a "mental disorder" demanding chemical treatment (with prescription medications, of course).
The new, upcoming DSM-5 "psychiatry bible," expected to be released in a few months, has transformed itself from a medical reference manual to a testament to the insanity of the industry itself.
"Mental disorders" named in the DSM-5 include "General Anxiety Disorder" or GAD for short. GAD can be diagnosed in a person who feels a little anxious doing something like, say, talking to a psychiatrist. Thus, the mere act of a psychiatrist engaging in the possibility of making a diagnoses causes the "symptoms" of that diagnoses to magically appear.
This is called quack science and circular reasoning, yet it's indicative of the entire industry of psychiatry which has become such a laughing stock among scientific circles that even the science skeptics are starting to turn their backs in disgust. Psychiatry is no more "scientific" than astrology or palm reading, yet its practitioners call themselves "doctors" of psychiatry in order to try to make quackery sound credible.
Here's how modern psychiatry really operates: A bunch of self-important, overpaid intellectuals who want to make more money invent a fabricated disease that I'll call "Hoogala Boogala Disorder" or HBD.
By a show of hands, they then vote into existence whatever "symptoms" they wish to associated with Hoogala Boogala Disorder. In this case, the symptoms might be spontaneous singing or wanting to pick your nose from time to time.
They then convince teachers, journalists and government regulators that Hoogala Boogala Disorder is real -- and more importantly that millions of children suffer from it! It wouldn't be compassionate not to offer all those children treatment, would it?
Thus begins the call for "treatment" for a completely fabricated disease. From there, it's a cinch to get Big Pharma to fabricate whatever scientific data they need in order to "prove" that speed, amphetamines, pharmaceutical crack or whatever poison they want to sell "reduces the risk of Hoogala Boogala Disorder."
Serious-sounding psychiatrists -- who are all laughing their asses off in the back room -- then "diagnose" children with Hoogala Boogala Disorder and "prescribe" the prescription drugs that claim to treat it. For this action, these psychiatrists -- who are, let's just admit it, dangerous child predators -- earn financial kickbacks from Big Pharma.
In order to maximize their kickbacks and Big Pharma freebies, groups of these psychiatrists get together every few years and invent more fictitious disorders, expanding their fictional tome called the DSM.
The DSM is now larger than ever, and it includes disorders such as "Obedience Defiance Disorder" (ODD), defined as refusing to lick boots and follow false authority. Rapists who feel sexual arousal during their raping activities are given the excuse that they have "Paraphilic coercive disorder" and therefore are not responsible for their actions. (But they will need medication, of course!)
You can also get diagnosed with "Hoarding Disorder" if you happen to stockpile food, water and ammunition, among other things. Yep, being prepared for possible natural disasters now makes you a mental patient in the eyes of modern psychiatry (and the government, too).
"The sick individual finds himself at home with all other similarly sick individuals. The whole culture is geared to this kind of pathology. The result is that the average individual does not experience the separateness and isolation the fully schizophrenic person feels. He feels at ease among those who suffer from the same deformation; in fact, it is the fully sane person who feels isolated in the insane society - and he may suffer so much from the incapacity to communicate that it is he who may become psychotic." - Eric Fromm, Swiss Psychologist (The Anatomy of Human Destructiveness)
Psychiatrists in North Carolina and other states work with insurance companies to launder money through claims.
Except for 'forced radical sexual and nonsexual sadomasochism' which has been the proven proclivity of the PAST FIVE PRESIDENTS and their friends. I suggest the American people get their fingers out of their butts like that chimp on the Youtube and get down to the business of cleaning this mess up. Mama never told youall about this sickness as US government policy.... Or maybe she did and voted for it just like YOU DID!
I agree whole heartedly. The psychiatrist (a 26 year woman) reported in my medical record at the VA hospital that I was paranoiac, grandiose, and delusional. It was the first time that we had met and the analysis lasted for forty minutes. I actually have an inferiority complex due to an abused childhood.
this is in essence an update of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. When the Soma was forcefully taken from them, they became violent. They as a society could not face reality. That seems to be the case now. We simply refuse to know what atrocities are occurring all about them. See no evil, hear not evil, speak no evil. That is our motto. We could take a lesson from from the masses in Egypt.
I certainly hope that all the smart people, all the clued-in people, continue to NOT listen to this bullshit. Please continue to ignore this babble speak. This comes from the same fucks who raised air quality levels in NYC in Sept 2001, same morons who defied the law of physics on buildings that same day. The same twisted faks who raised the "Safe" radiation levels when fukashima transpired. These demented criminals like to change the house odds on a whim, to hell with the safety of Americans. We all know what the TRUE classification of a mental illness is.......Any Politician doing business in DC is a total mental whack-job...
My only question, would I then qualify for legal marijuana?
