The psychiatric matrix creates the politically correct victim

on December 14, 2015

“Psychiatry seeks to gain control and domination over the entire area of human behavior, through classification by labels and bogus claims of diagnosis.

Here is the kicker: There are no definitive chemical or biological tests for any so-called mental disorder.

This fact is stunning to people. They automatically assume psychiatry is a science. It isn’t. It’s a shell game.

I refer now to the PBS FRONTLINE presentation, “Does ADHD Exist?” A quite revealing exchange occurs between the interviewer and Dr. Russell Barkley, professor of psychiatry and neurology at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.

INTERVIEWER: Skeptics say that there’s no biological marker—that it [ADHD] is the one condition out there where there is no blood test, and that no one knows what causes it.

BARKLEY: That’s tremendously naïve, and it shows a great deal of illiteracy about science and about the mental health professions. A disorder doesn’t have to have a blood test to be valid. If that were the case, all mental disorders would be invalid…There is no lab test for any mental disorder right now in our science. That doesn’t make them invalid.

Yes, that does make them invalid. All of them.

Of course, if you want to make science into guesswork and empty promises and speculation and tea-leaf reading, have at it. Privately, and preferably on a desert island.

Go to a library and pick up the DSM-V. Search through it for one defining laboratory test for any mental disorder. See for yourself. There isn’t any such test.

Yet, on this unscientific basis, psychiatry and its allies have managed to transform society. They’ve staged an extraordinarily successful revolution over the past 50 years.

And now, on several branches of that tree, we are seeing the poisonous fruition of a cultural correctness that seeks to encircle freedom.”

The psychiatric matrix creates the politically correct victim

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

“Individual [Harvard law] students often ask teachers not to include the law of rape on exams for fear that the material would cause them to perform less well. One teacher I know was recently asked by a student not to use the word “violate” in class—as in “Does this conduct violate the law?”—because the word was triggering. Some students have even suggested that rape law should not be taught because of its potential to cause distress.” (Jeannie Suk, The New Yorker, 12/15/14)

“When you have medical services at colleges all over the country making psychiatric diagnoses and dispensing drugs, day in and day out, what do you suppose is going to happen to those students? They’re going to wear their mental-disorder labels like…

  1. A great disservice to all who are helped by psychiatry. I am dismayed that someone of John’s stature would write about the lack of credibility of a science he has obviously never needed. Hundreds of thousands of us have been helped, hundreds of thousands more will be saved because of psychiatrists and their treatments.

    I hope John is healthy and never in need of psych services. But should he ever need a helping hand, there are millions of us ready to stand by his side.

    For further input, I posted a note to his blog.

    Peace.

    • Thanks for posting your opinion. I myself have taken various psych meds. I feel they did far more harm than good.

      Psychiatry is not a science. It is, as Merriam-Webster states: ” a branch of medicine that deals with mental, emotional, or behavioral disorders”.

      I feel that it’s very dangerous to label human behavior as “good” or “bad”, “normal” or “abnormal”. I believe that it’s modern society that is non-conducive to embracing the full range of variance in thought patterns that makes humanity so unique.

      For more on the subject of the flaws in the mental health industry, I suggest you check out a blog called Taking the Mask Off here on WordPress.

      • Thank you, Sweets. I will look at the blog.

        Yes, we need to stop ‘labeling’ everything and everyone.

        I can only speak from my personal experience. Post Partum Psychosis is very real. I could not have handled the experience without help from psychiatrists and medications. Without them, my daughter and I would have become another statistic.

        Enjoy your week, and thank you for dialoging with me.

      • I always appreciate a respectful conversation =)

        I do not claim to be an expert on all conditions labeled “mental disorders”. I do believe that the mental health industry is just that: an industry. And as such, it preys upon people in order to make big bucks. The way it seems to be going is that soon, everyone will be medicated from cradle to grave. And the side effects of those medications will be treated with more medications. This is a huge problem, in my opinion.

      • I agree. The Monsanto effect is already upon us. Some ask why the bees and butterfly’s are dying, but in the same breath they ask for a tasty, ripe and juicy, tomato. We can genetically alter the world we live in, but we best consider the alternative, the natural: Mother natures crafting. Sadly, the world demands perfection, even if it is artificially contrived.

        I can’t recall the movie, I saw it some forty odd years ago. It portrayed a world where we alter our state of being by taking a pill, tuning toward a screen, and allowing ourselves to be transferred to a mindlessness. Sadly, I’ve been witness to such an extreme in a psych ward. Patients who have been so brutally harmed by their own flesh and blood, that they could ill afford to live in the here and now. One young woman had been caged and brutally raped by her father and uncle. She suffered from a multiple personality disorder. When lucid, she spoke clearly and most intelligently, and then out of what appeared ‘nowhere’ other personalities came forward. She had a couple that were extremely violent. When they appeared, she would have to be restrained, medicated, and placed in a safe isolation room.

        The ills of our society are part and parcel of a myriad of sources. There are many, as far back, and even further, than Hitler, that wanted perfected traits. Pharmaceutical companies and insurance companies are bedfellows. Governments are their gatekeepers. “Keep people in line and they can be “controlled.” Unfortunately, the ones who need the “checks and balances” are the very ones who conspire to hold the rest of us in check.

        But, there truly are some of us that need a trained professional and medication(s) to get us stabilized. Not all brain chemistry is equal. Genetics, mutations and environmental elements can affect our perception. I do agree, our society needs to stop the labeling, and learn to accept that we each have a uniqueness (when healthy), that should be celebrated. When, where and why did we become a nation that felt the need to be, Politically Correct? What happened to the innate ability to simply respect one another? Not one of us is better than the other, granted, we are not all equal in certain aspects of our being, but we are all certainly unique. Even identical twins are individual(s).

        Thanks for allowing me to rant. Enjoy your evening, and your week.

      • I very much agree with most of this 😉

        I think the need for control stems from the feeling of *being* out of control. The more we control others, the more they try to control others. It’s cyclical, generation after generation.

        I feel we are coming to an impasse, the human race. The earth is a living thing; we are but one tiny part of it. Just as our bodies have bacteria that are beneficial or harmful, so humans can be either beneficial or harmful. If we are harmful, the earth will restore the balance by wiping most or all of us out. It has to be a symbiosis. Unless we return to a more natural state of being, we will be wiped out!
