Every year or two, one sees in the media somewhere headlines akin to this:

“Scientists on the verge of confirming brain chemical imbalance causing depression!”  

Or some such trite.  Or they will make the wording such that one thinks it is a done deal when, really, there never has been any confirmation or proof.  But by wording these headlines a certain way and making sure it comes from multiple sources, it becomes ‘TRUTH’ (but really nothing but an Urban Legend).

I’ll send you $100.00 if you send me hard evidence that there is scientific evidence of chemical imbalance causing depression.

Even the online magazine “Psychology Today” discounts the theory of Chemical Imbalance.

This quote from an article in the above magazine by Mark L Ruffalo:

Having practiced psychotherapy now for nearly a decade, I continue to be amazed by the number of patients who come in and claim to have a chemical imbalance in their brain. Not only is the chemical imbalance theory of mental disorder unsubstantiated by any empirical research, but it has also been widely and publicly refuted by a number of prominent psychiatrists, like Allen Frances and Ronald Pies above. In fact, I have found that the most militant proponents of the chemical imbalance idea to be nonpsychiatrists—like social workers and clinical psychologists—who cling to the theory as a way of validating their status as “health professionals.”

Psychology Today – Chemical Imbalance

My favourite line this article is this:

“The chemical imbalance theory offers something else, however, and that is the opportunity for the psychiatric patient to limit responsibility for his condition.”

If a person has some ‘condition’ that is ‘not their fault’, then it justifies all sorts of things.  Do drugs with impunity.  “I have a physical ailment that I have to take drugs for.”

Who promotes this sort of thing?  Who benefits from this?  This basic idea of “I’m not responsible.” allows people to be on drugs at the workplace costing a country like the US of A billions of wasted dollars. Between the money that goes into the pockets of Big Pharma and the inefficiency caused by so many people doing drugs, I think if the terrorists were smart, they would let American just destroy itself.  If these terrorists that the American government was so worried about would just finance broader application and use of drugs for depression and help finance marketing of the ‘Chemical Imbalance’  idea, then they(the terrorists) could just sit back and watch the country die.

Big Pharma is way more effective at destroying and terrorizing the USA than the Al Qaeda will ever be.

Is Psychiatry used as a terrorist tactic or tool for government control of populations?

An argument could easily be made for the above statement.  Many of earth’s governments, since before WW II have overtly used psychiatric torture techniques to control and incarcerate populations.

Here is a quote from one of psychiatry’s very own websites on how psychiatrists functioned at the behest of the Nazi government through the Second World War:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1828151/

“The professional status of psychiatrists did not place any obstacle to their participation in Nazi crimes, and many demonstrated a profound commitment to the atrocities. Psychiatrists were instrumental in instituting a system of identifying, notifying, transporting, and killing hundreds of thousands of mentally ill and “racially and cognitively compromised” individuals in settings ranging from centralized psychiatric hospitals to prisons and death camps. Their role was central and critical to the success of Nazi policy, plans, and principles.”

The above is not general public knowledge, you will not find this information promoted in mainstream media. Too much advertising money keeps media publications, online and elsewhere afloat – advertising money paid by the pharmaceutical industry which has a very high interest in seeing the continuance of the cult of psychiatry.

In this Wikipedia article one can see how psychiatry has often been used as a political tool in lieu of or preferably to bypass a legal system to incarcerate dissidents.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_abuse_of_psychiatry  “By adjusting the definitions of mental disorders to the residing governments preferences, they can then put someone away for a definite or indefinite period of time without legal recourse.  Using psychiatric torture techniques, such as ECT, drugs, a lobotomy or a leukotomy, they can essentially shut someone up forever.”

Talk to pretty much anyone in this ‘dumbed down America” and they will accept without question that these techniques have been oft used in the past in such places as Nazi Germany and the old Soviet Union.  There are a myriad of books and movies that show the history of these barbaric techniques being used in these places.  But these are stories of historical movies aren’t they?

Guess what? These horrific, terror tactics are still being used to this day.  In a small country like Canada with a population of 30+ million ECT is used 75,000 times per year.

A minimum of 200,000 people are FORCED into ECT treatment per year in the USA alone.  Yes, I said FORCED!  There never has been evidence of any benefit of this barbaric treatment.  To the contrary, there much to discredit ECT as very harmful and destructive.  It certainly would instil terror in me if I was forced to receive it.

So the next step here we have the “pot sorta calling the kettle black”.  The government of the US of A has been promoting its ‘War on Terrorism’ for the last 16 years.  (Since 9/11)

At the end of the Second World War, parts of the American government were somewhat enamoured of the torture techniques that Adolf Hitler had employed using his psychiatrists.  They certainly didn’t want all these wonderful years of research(and devastation) to go to waste.  So, many of these wonderful people(psychiatrists) were brought to the US of A to work for the CIA.

In the 1950s the CIA ran an operation called MK-Ultra – using LSD and other torture techniques, including ECT, for mind control experiments:

http://www.actionlyme.org/BRITISH_PSYCHIATRY.htm

“The Macy Foundation’s chief LSD executive, {{Harold Abramson, }} was a psychiatric researcher at Columbia University and at the eugenics center in Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island, New York. It was Abramson who first “turned on” Frank Fremont-Smith. Abramson also gave LSD for the first time to British anthropologist Gregory Bateson, sometime husband of Margaret Mead. Then in 1959, Bateson gave LSD to Beat poet Alan Ginsburg at Stanford University, under controlled experimental conditions. Following this, Dr. Leo Hollister at Stanford gave LSD to mental patient turned author Ken Kesey and others, and thus it was said to have spread “out of the CIA’s realm.”

This is interesting as most people in the 60s had no idea at the time that this whole LSD thing originated with the CIA.  Some of my compatriots at the time thought Ken Kesey was a god.  Turns out he was just a crazy man.  Even the CIA knew that thee drugs did way more damage to the mind than good.

Here is a little blurb on what the CIA was trying to do in in 1950:

http://subversify.com/2011/05/13/hitler’s-mind-control-experiments-and-how-they-influenced-modern-propaganda/

“Project BLUEBIRD was approved by the director of the CIA on April 20, 1950. In a 1951 memo, [11] Bluebird states that practical research was to be conducted to include these specific problems:

•Can we create by post-H [hypnotic] control an action contrary to an individual’s basic moral principles
•Can we in a matter of an hour, two hours, one day, etc., induce an H condition in an unwilling subject to such an extent that he will perform an act for our benefit?
•Could we seize a subject and in the space of an hour or two by post-H control have him crash an airplane, wreck a train, etc.?
•Can we by H and SI [sleep inducing] techniques force a subject to travel long distances, commit specified acts and return to us or bring documents or materials?
•Can we guarantee total amnesia under any and all conditions?
•Can we “alter” a person’s personality?
•Can we devise a system for making unwilling subjects into willing agents and then transfer that control to untrained agency agents in the field by use of codes or identifying signs?
•How can sodium A or P or any other sleep inducing agent be best concealed in a normal item, such as candy, cigarettes, coffee, tea, beer, medicines? [12] NB 13, 14, BB 23″

Years later there were some lawsuits – these were made public – by the people that were subjected to some of the MK-ULTRA experiments. So, these things were carried on as experiments.

Makes one wonder doesn’t it – did the CIA or whatever government agency would do this – did they just get more secretive? Look at people like Sirhan Sirhan (shot Robert Kennedy) – if these experiments were even minutely successful, then it would not be too far fetched to believe that he was controlled by the CIA in a Manchurian Candidate sort of way.

The problem with this is that most people are good and don’t believe there is that much bad in the world.  They just can’t believe that anyone could be that evil. They will watch a movie with some nasty ass bad guy but there is no connection to real life. Most people – not all – will really believe that there is no way.

Easy to shake this off as: “Oh, that is just a conspiracy theory.  You are seeing Martians.”  That would be fine except for the fact that the documents above are from the government that purports to be taking care of you.  It is not secret that psychiatric techniques have been used for torture in oppressive regimes over the last 70-80 years.  The evidence is there.  Very few people will disagree with this. They just done believe it is still going on and that their own government could be part of something so evil.

Any government that has the intention of keeping its population oppressed such as Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union and many other contemporary regimes such as the US of A is very happy, ecstatic in fact, to see the whites fighting the blacks, the gays fighting the straights – as long as everyone is fighting each other they won’t see the stuff that psychiatry is really doing at the behest of the government.

I have intentionally left a few things for you to research.  Bottom line though, is, you take the fangs out of the cult of psychiatry and you will have a much calmer society.

“For any group to engage fully and knowingly upon the destruction of the Constitution and any liberty or freedom it may guarantee is less startling thLRHfreedoman that they should also be accepted as the dominant force behind many politicians.

“‘National’ Mental Health groups in any country are all members of the World Federation of Mental Health. The former president of the WFMH, the Communist Brock Chisholm, and any and all officers of this group and its ‘National’ Mental Health members freely confess that they have as a primary target the eradication of their country’s Constitution.

“In the US this is a criminal offense, to advocate the overthrow of the Constitution. But many unprincipled State and Federal politicians not only turn a blind eye upon this, but also condone illegal seizure, torture and murder of citizens by these groups. Hitler once said that his primary weapon was the ‘incredible.’ No one would believe what was actually being done by the Saboteur forces of the Third Reich because their plans were incredible.

“These psychiatric front groups have a very thorough program of Western destruction:

1. Destruction of the Constitution.
2. Eradication of boundaries.
3. Easy seizure of anyone.
4. The ‘right’ to torture or kill.
5. Eradication of all churches.
6. Destruction of sexual morality.
7. Deprivation of future leaders by the creation of dope addiction in schools.”

—L. Ron Hubbard, article from 9 June 1969

These people need to be disciplined by their own but I don’t see that ever happening.  The pharmaceutical industry has the desire for money and control.  Keeping psychiatrists out ‘there’ upsetting various Publics and making a mess of things feeds their coffers.  So, when I hear of psychiatrists being detained for illegal behavior lessening native based terrorism, well, that is all good for the western world.

http://www.psychsearch.net/category/bizarre-psych-news/

This recent article out of San Antonio, Texas kind of clinches it for me.  I would always hope that the general mainstream media would try to print the news.  An unbiased view.  I understand why more and more people resort to reading alternative news sources.  I know many won’t read these as they are worried that they will feel like they are lumped in with the conspiracy theorists.  The problem with any news source these days is that they are forwarding some sort of agenda.  Mainstream media is financed by their advertisers and whomsoever sits on the boards of the advertising companies will dictate.  Some of the smaller ‘alternative’ media can be just as alarming.  They as well make for a ‘dangerous’ environment.
It is hard to follow them all but always the best are the local news outlets.  I would love to see more news that would calm our nations.  There is violence in this story and it will likely come out as with other similar stories that the perpetrator was a product of pharmaceuticals but the violence here could have been much worse.  It is a story of another ‘nutcase’ with a gun but before that person could do more than wound a couple of people he was killed by what appears to be an off-duty cop.

The point here is not to promote guns or argue that point.  It is that this could have easily been a disastrous situation much like Denver or Sandy Hook.  If there are a hundred ‘gun’ stories, which will the mainstream media follow?

Answer:  Education

I have read several books about the Middle East, particularly Afghanistan and Pakistan recently:  Greg Mortenson’s books, Three Cups of Tea and Stones into Schools; Malalai Joya’s A Woman Among Warlords and The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, among others.

These books brought to mind an interesting comparison between what the terrorists like the Taliban and Al-Qaeda do regarding education and what has happened to education in North America, particularly the United States in the last 100 years.

One of the first things that the Taliban did when it came to power in the 90s was to close girls’ schools.  They made it against the law for women to get educated.  They would perpetrate the most hellacious acts of violence on any woman who defied the ruling.  Malalai’s book outlines some really horrible atrocities.

In his book Three Cups of Tea, Greg Mortenson quotes an African proverb: “If you educate a boy, you educate the individual.  But if you educate a girl, you educate a community.”

He says further: “Several studies show if you educate a girl to at least the fifth grade level, it does three important things: one, it reduces infant mortality; number two, reduces population explosion; and number three it improves the quality of health and life itself.”

The Taliban and now the criminal mullahs that run Afghanistan are more interested in controlling (oppressing) their populations than allowing them any freedom of choice that education brings.

Mortensen talks in his books about Saudi extremists funneling money into boys’ schools in Pakistan that gave them a very narrow education that allowed their ‘teachers’ to control the boys’ views on the world.  Malalai Joya also points out how the same thing occurs in Afghanistan with both Saudi and Iranian religious extremists.  Uneducated boys are much easier to manipulate and indoctrinate into terrorism.  Malalai was, for years, part of program in Afghanistan that covertly ran schools for women.

In his book Confessions of a Mullah Warrior, Farivar Masood tells of his change of view when he came to the West.  He had very little education as to what the rest of the world was like.  He was educated in one of the extremist schools.

So, if you want to teach a population only your views, make sure that you control the education system.  That makes the terrorist target: education, especially women’s education because they will improve life in their community.

The scary thing is that a very similar activity has been going on in the United States of America for the last 100 years.

The book The Leipzig Connection by Paolo Lionni outlines how, starting in the early part of the 1900s, the Rockefellers and others financed the educating of teachers of the United States as long as principles and various concepts of psychiatry and psychology were incorporated into the  programs at Teachers’ Colleges.  We now have at least 2-3 generations of teachers indoctrinated in psychobabble instead of just how to educate someone.

The book The Leipzig Connection can be found on Amazon and other places but there is a site that has some pretty good excerpts: The Leipzig Connection

It is common knowledge that the education system has been deteriorating in the last 60-70 years.  In his book, Why Johnny Can’t Read, Rudolf Flesch gives numerous examples of farmers in England 500 years ago being more literate than many of the young in America today.

There are numerous websites that outline the invasive nature of psychiatry and psychology in our school systems and here is one of the better articles: Psychiatric Help?

So, the top terrorist targets in the United States are not large buildings or nuclear plants but the minds of our children.

A friend of mine works construction in LA.  He talks to a lot of people – he does like to talk.  He told me a story of a woman he met about 3-4 years ago.  He had gone to her house to appraise some damage to her chimney I expect and as he is wont to do he spoke with her of many things besides the required work.  At one point she told him that she was very upset in life which made it hard to do her job and raise her kids.  She was constantly worried about things and couldn’t really pinpoint what it was that she was worried about.

Upon questioning it was discovered that this woman started each day by reading the newspaper and ended each day watching the news on television.  This was Los Angeles remember….

He asked her to do something that most people would never even consider: stop reading the newspaper and watching the news for one month.  Absolutely no “news” in her life for that amount of time.  It took a bit to get her to agree to this but he assured her that the world would not change that much in a few weeks.

She finally agreed and he .  He had asked that she call at the end of the month period.  She reached him after a week.  He was a bit concerned with her calling as he had already spent quite a bit of time calming her down and trying to convince her to stay away from the ‘news’.  But he was pleasantly surprised: She told him that she had completely kept away from the newspaper and did not watch the news on TV.  The result was that in only one week she felt completely different – she was much calmer and no longer was upset with everything in life.  In just those few days she was handling her job better and was actually enjoying life.

This is not the first story of this nature that I’ve heard and I’m sure that there are many more.

So, what does this have to do with psychiatry?

Big Pharma funds the media and obviously will tell them what can be promoted.  Do the homework – follow the money.  Look at the number of drug advertisements that are in magazines, newspapers and on television.  Money like this cannot be turned away by the media.

Also, you will find many board members crossing from Big Pharma to media conglomerates.  An example of this is: “MMR vaccine manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline has appointed to its Board the head of News International James Murdoch.”

It behooves psychiatry and Big Pharma to keep the media directed the way they want – the more upset the general population are the more drugs they will take.

Do your own research.

In this blog I will be doing some comparisons of psychiatry to terrorism. One of the first steps would be to clearly define each and their stated goals. As the subject of terrorism has been at the forefront these past few years, we’ll start there. There is no shortage of material on the net about terrorists and their goals. I found one site that has some interesting information here: Terrorism Research
