Going On Hoping

Monday, April 5th, 2021

Hope is the desire that sometime in the future, one will cease to have something which is no longer wanted but one can’t seem to get rid of (like a chronic pain), or that one will acquire something wanted.

“Going On Hoping” is the condition where one continues to hope in spite of no possibility of realizing one’s goal, particularly when one is not actively involved in realizing the goal.

Giving something a lick and a promise and hoping it will somehow be all right stems from laziness and stupidity. I hope that doesn’t offend anyone.

The better alternative is to control one’s environment by doing things well and thoroughly, leading to one’s goals.

The Psychiatric Way

Psychiatrists speak about “adaptation to one’s environment” as the way to handle Life. One of the primary ways psychiatric treatment attempts to adapt one to one’s environment is with drugs, which reduce or block restimulative stimuli by deadening the perceptive abilities of the central nervous system.

Many psychiatric studies on the topic emphasize how one’s environment, over which one apparently has little control, influences or controls one’s troubles. Toxins and contaminants in the environment; stress in the environment; one’s genes; one’s community and its social factors; the climate; PTSD; crime and other violent or dangerous situations in the environment; endemic systemic pandemic polemics.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), psychiatry’s billing bible, promotes these environmental factors against which one supposedly cannot fight back as the diagnostic criteria showing the presence of a “mental disorder”. One such is the diagnosis of “Victim of crime.”

Of course, one can certainly find situations where it is helpful to adapt to an environment. Think of wearing a protective suit in a hostile environment such as outer space or under water.

We don’t minimize these environmental factors, which have been found to be major contributors to mental stress and trauma. Rather, we point out that the common psychiatric point of view is to only find ways a person can adapt to such stress, when there might also be ways to exert more control over the environmental factors and adapt the environment to oneself. There are even terms to describe this psychiatric viewpoint, such as “stress-adapted children”; meaning that they have learned how to adapt to stress in their environments.

In fact, the data indicate that drug treatment is not usually necessary if a proper interpersonal environment and social context is provided as alternatives to psychiatry.

The Better Alternative

It has also been found that if one knows the technology of how to do something and can do it, and uses it, he cannot be the adverse effect of it. So for example in the matters under discussion here, the more one knows about something in the environment, and the more one can handle and control that, the less bad effects it can cause one. This leads to the insight that the more one can adapt the environment to oneself, instead of only adapting oneself to the environment, then the less the environment can harm one.

One may exclaim all kinds of ifs, ands and buts in the matter. But the fact remains that it behooves one to find out more about whatever the trouble is, and search diligently for ways to influence or control that.

Recommendations

CCHR recommends various strategies to proactively cope with psychiatric fraud or abuse, an environmental stress to which one may be subjected. For example:

Depersonalization – Another Fake psychiatric Disorder

Monday, March 29th, 2021

Are you feeling unreal? Are you a stranger to yourself? You may have “Depersonalization Disorder”!

ROFL, forgive me. Like we don’t already have a surfeit of fake diseases in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)! Oh, wait! It’s already in the DSM-5, as “Depersonalization/derealization disorder” (DDD).

There is increasing evidence that psychotropic drugs evoke an unbearable state of mind, such as feeling unreal, feeling detached, feeling like a stranger to oneself, not having sensations, or feeling like a walking cadaver — so much so that the person opts for suicide or violence as a means of relief.

Oh, wait again! This sounds just like some of the side effects, or adverse reactions, of various psychiatric drugs! Note that derealization means that the perception of the world and of external reality are altered. Sounds like a hallucination or delusion, which are known side effects of antidepressants.

For example, newer antidepressants have reported side effects of: abnormal thoughts; agitation; akathisia (severe restlessness); anxiety; confusion; delusions; emotional numbing; hallucinations; mood swings; panic attacks; paranoia; suicidal thoughts or behavior; violent behavior; withdrawal symptoms including deeper depression.

And since DDD is in the DSM, a psychiatrist can prescribe additional harmful and addictive psychiatric drugs for this diagnosis.

Psychiatrists do not know what causes these symptoms or how to cure it, and there are no clinical tests which can diagnose it. Diagnosis is based solely on opinion. Treatment is generally an antidepressant or anti-anxiety drug, often in combination with cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) which is basically telling the patient what is wrong with them (evaluating for them).

There are whole organizations devoted just to DDD, providing a base for requesting research funds, getting articles published, and of course “treating” victims with more psychiatric drugs — when the actual treatment should include getting off the psychiatric drugs which are causing these side effects in the first place.

What about the person who experiences symptoms of so-called DDD without being on any drugs? Well, yes, Life can certainly include trauma needing some kind of relief; but it shouldn’t include drugs which can continue to cause these same symptoms, making the person a patient for life.

So What Actually Is The Condition Known As Depersonalization or Derealization?

A person’s inability to feel the reality of things stems directly from the introduction of some arbitrary consideration — something which has no basis in natural law or fact. This is often called “superstition.” For example, some person is feeling under the weather, and someone tells them “it’s all due to the lack of Prozac in your diet.” The person’s acceptance of this “solution” to their problem causes some unreality, since it is arbitrary and false. The introduction of any arbitrary thing into a problem or a solution invites further arbitraries to help “explain” it away. Eventually, one’s life becomes one exception after another, all arbitraries trying to correct the original misconception and on down the line.

One resolution is to trace back these arbitraries throughout one’s life and get the original one corrected. Obviously, psychiatric drugs cannot do this, as they merely deaden the nervous system to suppress symptoms and can never actually correct any arbitrary.

Recognize that the real problem is that psychiatrists fraudulently diagnose life’s problems as an “illness”, and stigmatize unwanted behavior as “diseases.” Psychiatry’s stigmatizing labels, programs and treatments are harmful junk science; their diagnoses of “mental disorders” are a hoax – unscientific, fraudulent and harmful. All psychiatric treatments, not just psychiatric drugs, are dangerous.

Contact your public officials and tell them what you think about this.

Logic, Superstition, and Psychiatry

Monday, February 15th, 2021

Effective Definitions
Logic — the subject of reasoning; the ability to think clearly and reach correct conclusions. [ultimately from Greek logos “speech, reason, word”]
Superstition — an irrational attitude or notion maintained despite evidence to the contrary. [ultimately from Latin super- “over” + stare “to stand”]

What Is Logic?

Logic is a process of observation and thought that leads to correct conclusions. This process is called “reasoning.” Reason depends upon data. When data is faulty or unobserved the conclusions are unreasonable (i.e. illogical.)

What Is Superstition?

Superstition is the substitution of false or faulty data for correctly observed data leading to incorrect, unreasonable or illogical conclusions.

One of the primary ways superstition takes hold is by having fixed ideas. A fixed idea is something accepted without personal inspection or agreement. It may appear normal or reasonable, but on close observation and inspection can be shown to be faulty.

Sanity and Insanity

It can be seen that sanity is one’s reasoning toward optimum survival. Specifically it is one’s ability to recognize differences, similarities and identities. This is a necessary ability one must have to be logical.
[Sanity: Soundness of judgment or reason; derives ultimately from Latin sanus “healthy”.]

The opposite of sanity is insanity, which can be seen to be faulty reasoning leading toward nonsurvival, or the inability to recognize differences, similarities and identities. The result of this is to be illogical.

Cause and Effect

No amount of logic can replace some good, solid, imaginative superstition, which is the assignment of cause to something or someone other than the person themself.

By this we mean that in the absence of a person’s ability to be responsible and cause things to happen — that is, the person is only being the effect of others — logic is ineffective and superstition will take its place.

Notice that one of the main uses of both logic and superstition in this case is to covertly justify how one is not responsible and has not caused anything. It’s always something or someone else — i.e. “The Why Is God!” syndrome.
Thus, someone will say “It’s only logical” when on close inspection it isn’t logical at all. This red herring leads to no end of superstition and failures.

Psychiatry Is Superstition

In the case of psychiatry, the Why is the Brain. Insanity is all the brain’s fault; and they justify this with both (faulty) logic and (imaginative) superstition. They’ve got it covered.

In the case of psychiatry, neither logic nor superstition is sanity. In fact, psychiatrists do not know what sanity or insanity is, since it is clear that psychiatry cannot distinguish the sane from the insane. This, psychiatrists when pressed about it, readily admit.

We do not know the causes [of any mental illness]. We don’t have the methods of ‘curing’ these illnesses yet.” —Dr. Rex Cowdry, psychiatrist and director of National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), 1995

As a result, all psychiatric diagnoses and treatments are based on superstition, which is called a “pseudoscience.”

The only thing the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is good for is to bill insurance for bogus treatments.

In short, the whole business of creating psychiatric categories of ‘disease,’ formalizing them with consensus, and subsequently ascribing diagnostic codes to them, which in turn leads to their use for insurance billing, is nothing but an extended racket furnishing psychiatry a pseudo-scientific aura. The perpetrators are, of course, feeding at the public trough.” [Dr. Thomas Dorman, Member of the Royal College of Physicians of the United Kingdom and Canada]

Recommendations

Government, criminal, educational, judicial and other social agencies should not rely on the DSM and no legislation should use this as a basis for determining the mental state, competency, educational standard or rights of any individual.

The Missouri Revised Statutes (RSMo) contains several explicit mentions of the DSM in Chapter 376 on Life, Health and Accident Insurance. Contact your Missouri State legislators and ask them to remove all references to the DSM from Missouri State Law.

The U.N. Sustainable Development Goals

The 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and their 169 associated targets adopted in 2015 and accepted by all Member States seek to realize the human rights of all and balance economic, social and environmental factors towards peace and prosperity for all.

To this end we examine some of the existing factors which block or inhibit the realization of these goals, and which must be eliminated so that the goals can be achieved in practice.

SDG 16: Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.

Target 16.3: Promote the rule of law at the national and international levels and ensure equal access to justice for all.

How Psychiatry Obstructs Target 16.3

When psychiatry entered the justice and penal systems, it did so under the subterfuge that it understood Man, that it knew not only what made Man act as he did, but that it knew how to improve his lot. This was a lie. Psychiatry has had opportunity to prove itself. The experiment has been a miserable failure.

In the 1940’s, psychiatry’s leaders proclaimed their intention to infiltrate the field of the law and bring about the “re–interpretation and eventually eradication of the concept of right and wrong.” And they did, with the consequence that today, because of their influence, the justice system is failing.

The psychiatric “insanity defense” and its derivatives have done the most damage. The psychiatric industry jumping on the “not guilty by reason of insanity” (NGRI) bandwagon has lead to a massive erosion of public confidence in the justice system’s ability to mete out swift and equitable justice.

Psychiatric “expert” witnesses are widely criticized for providing testimony to suit their clients’ purposes.

Psychiatry, using the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), has warped the justice system to protect criminals instead of protecting society from criminals.

With each new failure to rehabilitate the criminally insane, psychiatry merely asks for more money since they are unable to cure anyone.

A major part of the “treatment” for prison inmates is a regimen of powerful psychotropic drugs, despite numerous studies showing that aggression and violence are tied to their use.

Because of the complete lack of scientific validity, legal and medical experts recommend eliminating psychiatric and psychological testimony from the courts.

Psychiatric fraud and abuse must be eradicated so that SDG 16 can occur.

Magnetic Seizure Therapy – How Unattractive!

Monday, December 14th, 2020

In 1993 a team of researchers from the United States and Switzerland triggered seizures in patients with a magnetic field. They thought this was wonderful, and could lead to a revolution in treatment of various ailments.

Yet competent medical experts warn that seizures are linked to developmental disabilities, learning and behavioral disorders, and many other negative long-term outcomes. The Mayo Clinic advises people to seek immediate medical help if one has a seizure.

Psychiatrists, however, are banking on making a ton of money by forcing vulnerable people to have seizures for depression.

Magnetic Seizure Therapy (MST) is a brain stimulation therapy in which magnetic pulses deliberately induce seizures, similar to electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), in patients under general anesthesia.

Like Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS), MST uses magnetic pulses instead of electricity to restimulate a precise target in the brain. However, unlike rTMS, MST aims to induce a seizure like ECT does, in the forlorn hope that this would not have all the horrific side effects of ECT.

The claim is that this assault on the brain reduces symptoms from major depression or bipolar disorder in 30-40% of individuals so treated. Well, of course it might temporarily reduce symptoms, since it basically shuts down normal activity of the brain for a period.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t cure anything and never will, while also carrying the significant risks of anesthesia exposure and induction of seizures.

Even the psychiatric billing bible, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), carries a category for seizures [“Conversion disorder (functional neurological symptom disorder), With attacks or seizures”], for which psychiatrists can prescribe one or more psychotropic drugs. [A Conversion Disorder is a mental condition in which a person has some neurologic symptoms unrelated to a specific disease.]

All competent medical personnel know about the grave consequences of untreated seizures, yet psychiatrists actually promote this as a “treatment.” How do they get away with this?

Seizures are also one of the possible adverse side effects of various psychiatric drugs such as psychostimulants, antidepressants, antipsychotics, anti-anxiety drugs, and lithium. What’s one more so-called “treatment” that causes seizures?

The psychiatric industry has a history of deliberately reducing their patient’s intelligence as a “treatment.” Evidence that electroshock lowers IQ is certainly available. Documented side effects of ECT include lowered intellectual function, with a 20- to 40-point drop in IQ.

Are you beginning to see the pattern here? Since psychiatry cannot cure any mental disorder, they turn to “treatments” which just knock you out so you don’t feel bad any more. Of course, you don’t feel good, either.

Sure, fry your brain with magnetic seizure therapy! Who knows, it may enhance your natural animal magnetism (Not!).

Spirit Has More Than One Meaning

Monday, December 7th, 2020

The English word “spirit” has more than one meaning.

The word derives originally from Latin spiritus, “breath”, from spirare “to blow, breathe”.

One common definition is “a spiritual being.” But there are also these meanings:

— Feeling Lively – a lively or brisk quality in a person or in a person’s actions.
— Élan – vigorous spirit or enthusiasm [from Middle French eslan “rush”].
— The creative, animating or vital principle giving life to physical organisms.

When a spiritual being pervades an area, it brings benignity and serenity as it gives life to that area, as embodied in the phrase “the spirit of the woods,” in which a spirit occupies and animates a woodland area.

Spiritual sensation is a gradient scale — from creative and lofty heights at the top, down to destruction and degradation at the bottom. For someone somewhere in the middle or bottom of that scale, it may be hard to imagine the delight of someone at the top.

The highest level of spiritual sensation is aesthetics, and beauty is a consideration of aesthetics. Unfortunately, psychiatry denies the beauty in all of us.

Much of humanity, while trying to reach an exalted height of sensation, beauty and emotion, only gets as high as the taste of beer and an orgasm. But much of that degradation is due to the suppressive influence of psychiatry.

Psychiatry Attacks Aesthetics

Psychiatrist Oscar Janiger (1918-2001) lured hundreds of writers, musicians, actors and filmmakers into taking the hallucinogen LSD, with promises of “vivid aesthetic perceptions” that would lead them to a “greater appreciation of the arts” and enhanced creativity. We know now that this was truly a hallucination.

Medical studies rapidly showed that LSD could induce a psychotic psychedelic experience characterized by intense fear to the point of panic, paranoid delusions of suspicion or grandeur, toxic confusion, and depersonalization. LSD induced the very “madness” psychiatrists claimed to be able to cure. Many artists and others found their lives and careers devastated under the weight of these delusions and the accompanying depersonalization so deliberately promoted by psychiatry.

Now, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) contains thirty hallucinogen-related diagnoses for which psychiatrists can prescribe harmful and addictive psychotropic drugs. Psychiatry first created the problems they then falsely claimed to be able to treat.

Psychiatry Attacks the Creative Mind

For years, psychiatrists have labeled the creative mind as a “mental disorder,” mischaracterizing an artist’s “feverish brilliance” as a manic phase of craziness, or melancholic performances as depression. Vision was redefined as hallucination.

Psychiatrists notoriously and falsely “diagnosed” the creative mind as a “mental disorder,” invalidating the artist’s abilities as “neurosis.” They lectured on the supposedly thin line dividing madness and sanity. Yet the artist is far superior to psychiatry’s materialistic and authoritarian “science” that can blunt the creative mind by redefining it as “madness.”

Some of the artists harmed by psychiatry were Marilyn Monroe, Vivien Leigh, Judy Garland, Ernest Hemingway, Frances Farmer, Billie Holiday, Brian Wilson (The Beach Boys), and Kurt Cobain.

It’s not only that creativity is attacked by psychiatry, but also intelligence. The psychiatric industry has a history of deliberately reducing their patient’s intelligence, further harming their creativity. Evidence exists that both electroshock and marijuana lower IQ, and both are heavily promoted as “treatments” by psychiatry.

Recommendations

Normal people have problems that can and must be resolved without recourse to psychiatric drugs or other harmful psychiatric methods. Deceiving and drugging is not the practice of medicine. It is criminal.

People in desperate circumstances must be provided proper non-psychiatric care. Sound medical attention, good nutrition, a healthy, safe environment and activity that promotes confidence, will do far more for a troubled person than repeated drugging, shocks and other psychiatric abuses designed to stifle the spiritual creative impulse.

My psychiatrist said nothing about side effects!

Are You Certain About That?

Monday, October 26th, 2020

Definitions
Certainty: Quality or state of being fixed, settled, specific but unspecified character, dependable, reliable, indisputable, inevitable, assured.

[Originally from Latin certus, past participle of cernere “to sift, discern, decide, determine”.]

An even better definition is “A gradient scale of clarity of observation.” By gradient scale we mean a gradually increasing (or decreasing) degree of something.

Scale of Certainty

For example, one might say that certainty is a relative scale from “sure thing” at the top, through “maybe” somewhere in the middle, down to “totally uncertain” at the bottom. Dead, by the way, is not the bottom, exemplified by the phrase “dead sure.”

An uncertainty, or maybe, is the product of two certainties, one a positive conviction and the other a negative conviction. Anxiety, indecision, uncertainty, in other words a state of “maybe”, can exist only in the presence of poor observation or the inability to observe.

People who are at low levels of awareness, in other words relatively uncertain, do not observe; they substitute for observation beliefs, preconceptions, evaluations, suppositions, and even physical pain by which to obtain their certainties.

The certainty of an impact, or pain, is a relatively false certainty. A certainty carried home in terms of physical impact is not self-determined, it is other-determined. The rehabilitation of self-determinism, or the ability to direct oneself, should be the aim of all effective therapies.

Psychiatric “Certainty”

The mistaken use of shock by psychiatry upon the insane seeks to deliver sufficient certainty to cause them to be less insane. However, it only produces stimulus-response behavior, not self-determined behavior. Certainty delivered by force, pain, blows and shock eventually brings about only unconsciousness and the certainty of unawareness.

Thus we see that psychiatry as currently practiced does not and never can cause an improvement in mental health, since it relies solely upon shock as its treatments.

Psychiatry’s brutal therapies can now be seen for what they really are: attempts to overwhelm an individual, eventually rendering them unaware of their mental traumas.

Harmful Psychiatric “Treatments”

All psychiatric treatments are based upon shock of one form or another.

Electroshock, also called electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), creates trauma to the brain.

Psychosurgery, such as prefrontal lobotomy, creates trauma to the brain.

Deadly restraints, create trauma to the individual.

Harmful and addictive psychotropic drugs, often called chemical restraints, create trauma to the individual.

Involuntary commitment, creates trauma to the individual.

Therapist sexual abuse, creates trauma to the individual.

Talk therapy, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), is basically telling the patient what is wrong with them (evaluating for them), and is thus just another form of shock therapy.

Being threatened with involuntary commitment or punishment for refusal of treatment, or
Being coerced into hospitalization or treatment, create trauma to the individual.

The Real Problem

The real problem is that psychiatrists fraudulently diagnose life’s problems as an “illness” and stigmatize unwanted behavior or study problems as “diseases,” using the psychiatric billing bible Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) as their justification. The bottom line is that all psychiatric “treatments” are harmful.

Contact your local, state and federal officials, let them know what you think about this and urge them to defund psychiatric research and treatments.

Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out, Psych Out

Monday, October 19th, 2020

Over the last few years there has been a surge of interest and media in using psychedelics as psychiatric drugs to “treat” so-called “mental illness.” Need we actually say that this is an insanely bad idea?

For example, psychiatrists have been demanding funds for research using LSD,psilocybin (magic mushroom), MDMA (Ecstasy), marijuana,ketamine and kratom.

Even if psychedelic drugs are administered to consenting subjects, such research demonstrates a fundamental disregard for human life because of the drugs’ mind-altering properties, born out by the psychiatric-intelligence community’s past research of LSD, psilocybin and amphetamines. Not only does psychedelic drug abuse endanger one’s health, but also one’s learning rate, attitudes, personality and overall mental acuity.

Thirty-two million people in the US are reported users of psychedelic drugs, while reports of riots, violence, suicide, and psychotic behavior are rising.

Apparently enough time has passed that the public has forgotten what happened when psychedelics gained notoriety in the 1960s, when LSD pushed by psychiatrists spread into society as a recreational drug and started destroying lives with induced psychosis. Even the psychiatric billing bible, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), lists various forms of “hallucinogen intoxication” as a mental disorder so that psychiatrists can make a buck from “treating” it.

The long history of psychiatry’s attempts to promote psychedelics should give us additional clues to their harm. In the last 150 years, psychiatry has been unable to justify any cures using psychedelics. In the 1840’s French psychiatrist Jacques-Joseph Moreau promoted marijuana as a medicine. Psychedelic drugs were studied for mental health conditions in the 1950’s and 1960’s. The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) was founded in 1986 by Rick Doblin specifically to promote marijuana and psychedelics as “medicines” after his experiments using psychedelic drugs to catalyze religious experiences. In 1992, Australian psychiatrists called for heroin, cocaine and marijuana to be sold legally in liquor stores. Today, psychiatrists are embracing all things marijuana because they are getting so many patients with marijuana-related problems such as addiction and psychosis.

A surge of interest in “repurposing” psychiatric drugs for other uses has also surfaced. Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis announced they have launched a clinical trial in patients who have tested positive for COVID-19 but who are not sick enough to be hospitalized. The trial is investigating whether the antidepressant fluvoxamine (Luvox)–a drug linked to the Columbine High School shooting in 1999–can be repurposed for COVID-19.

The facts show psychedelics can trigger rage, violence, aggression, and precipitate various mental disorders. Whether given in a clinical setting or illegally abused, the drugs can have harmful outcomes and have no use in the mental health field.

Contact your local, state and federal officials. Let them know what you think about this, and encourage them not to fund psychedelic research.

SDG 14Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.
Target 14.1: By 2025, prevent and significantly reduce marine pollution of all kinds, in particular from land-based activities, including marine debris and nutrient pollution.

How Psychiatry Obstructs Target 14.1
We addressed this largely in SDG Target 6.3 when we discussed the fact that pharmaceuticals are increasingly prevalent in our drinking water. Now we see that the same problem can occur for planetary water as well, since the oceans and marine life are susceptible to psychiatric drug contamination as well as our drinking water supply.

Some relevant quotes:
Pharmaceuticals are emitted from our bodies, homes, and factories, entering waterways and accumulating in fish, bugs, mollusks, crustaceans, birds, and warm-blooded animals. … But medicinal compounds have also been detected in remote environments, imbuing surface waters even in Antarctica.”

And another relevant quote:
“And there’s a growing pile of evidence suggesting this ‘soup’ of antidepressants and their break-down products is taking its toll on marine life.”

Just Google “psychiatric drugs in the ocean” for many more quotes.

The truth about psychiatric drugs is that their bad effects harm more than just people. But lest we forget, harmful and addictive drugs are themselves only the side effects of the more serious issue: The real problem is that psychiatrists fraudulently diagnose life’s problems as an “illness”, and stigmatize unwanted behavior or study problems as “diseases.” 

Psychiatry’s stigmatizing labels, programs and treatments are all harmful junk science; their diagnoses of “mental disorders” are a hoax — unscientific, fraudulent and harmful. All psychiatric treatments, not just psychiatric drugs, are dangerous.

The WHO

The World Health Organization, created by the United Nations in 1948, funded in part by $553 million dollars annually from the United States government (roughly 31% of the WHO’s budget), is a prime offender in terms of psychiatric abuse.

[Note: On April 14, 2020, the President of the United States suspended U.S. contributions to the World Health Organization pending an investigation by the Administration of the organization’s failed response to the COVID-19 outbreak.]

In spite of any efforts that WHO and the UN may take throughout the world, it remains that the mental disorders section of the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Diseases (ICD), like the American Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), both used as the final word on sanity, insanity, and so-called mental illness, are used by psychiatrists to diagnose fraudulent mental illnesses leading to massive over-drugging with harmful and addictive psychiatric drugs which are finding their way into the marine environment with disastrous results.

Psychiatric fraud and abuse must be eradicated so that SDG 14 can occur.

How psychiatry Usurps Climate Change Planning

SDG 13Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.
Target 13.2: Integrate climate change measures into national policies, strategies and planning.

How Psychiatry Obstructs Target 13.2
The psycho-pharmaceutical industry has jumped full-time onto the climate change bandwagon. Scholarly articles are being published claiming that climate change affects mental health, along with the typical cries to fund more research, prescribe more antidepressants, and prepare for the worst.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) does not lack for possible disorders that can be tied to some climate change disaster for which antidepressants can be prescribed.

It used to be called “Seasonal Affective Disorder” (SAD). Although this is no longer classified as a unique disorder, it can still be diagnosed as a “mood disorder with a seasonal pattern.” SAD is considered a subtype of major depression or bipolar disorder. An example of a SAD diagnosis might be “Major Depressive Disorder, Recurrent Episode, Moderate, With Seasonal Pattern”.

Here we have the “dangerous environment” in full bloom. Wherever psychiatry intervenes, the environment becomes more dangerous, more unsettled, more disturbed. A dangerous environment only persists if we fail to spread a safe environment across the world. What makes a dangerous environment? Confusion, conflict and upset.

The psychiatrists who promote a dangerous environment make it seem as threatening as possible so that they can profit from it. How do you counter this? You stop spreading the chaos and spread the truth instead. Behind the truth comes the calm. You may still need technology to handle climate change, but you don’t need antidepressant drugs to do so.

The issue is not “is there or is there not climate change?” The issue is, get rid of the psychiatrists who are promoting and profiting from the confusion.

Psychiatric fraud and abuse must be eradicated so that SDG 13 can occur.
