Vaccine fraud? What about psychiatric fraud? Staggering.

Vaccine fraud? What about psychiatric fraud? Staggering.

September 8, 2014

This is an article about the intentional construction of false reality.

Not a minor construction—a huge, enduring, institutional, wing-flapping, money-munching, poison-dispensing, Matrix-welding, yet “humanity-saving” invention.

In the wake of CDC whistleblower William Thompson’s confession that he buried a vaccine-autism connection, some people reacted with shock—as if this was the first case of rank fraud that had ever taken place within the hallowed halls of medical research.

How about a whole branch of modern medicine that is a fraud from top to bottom?

Let us turn the page to Psychiatry.

And the lying liars who lie about it.

Most Americans don’t have a clue about the way psychiatry actually works or its pose of being a science.

The public hears techno-speak and nods and surrenders.

If psychiatrists are experts on the human mind, mice can navigate the Arctic in canoes. But psychiatrists are educated to be able to talk a good game.

And politicians are more than happy to mouth vagaries, and consign the problems of society to “mental-health professionals.”

It turns out that the phrase “mental health” was invented by psyop specialists, who needed to create an analogy to physical well-being. They needed to, because:


And along with that:

ALL SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDERS ARE CONCOCTED, NAMED, LABELED, DESCRIBED, AND CATEGORIZED by a committee of psychiatrists, from menus of human behaviors.

Their findings are published in periodically updated editions of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), printed by the American Psychiatric Association.

Of course, pharmaceutical companies, who manufacture highly toxic drugs to treat every one of these “disorders,” are leading the charge to invent more and more mental-health categories, so they can sell more drugs and make more money.

But we have a mind-boggling twist. Under the radar, one of the great psychiatric stars, who has been out front in inventing mental disorders, went public. He blew the whistle on himself and his colleagues. And for years, almost no one noticed.

His name is Dr. Allen Frances, and he made VERY interesting statements to Gary Greenberg, author of a Wired article: “Inside the Battle to Define Mental Illness.” (Dec.27, 2010).

Major media never picked up on the interview in any serious way. It never became a scandal.

Dr. Allen Frances is the man who, in 1994, headed up the project to write the latest edition of the psychiatric bible, the DSM-IV. This tome defines and labels and describes every official mental disorder. The DSM-IV eventually listed 297 of them.

In an April 19, 1994, New York Times piece, “Scientist At Work,” Daniel Goleman called Frances “Perhaps the most powerful psychiatrist in America at the moment…”

Well, sure. If you’re sculpting the entire canon of diagnosable mental disorders for your colleagues, for insurers, for the government, for Pharma (who will sell the drugs matched up to the 297 DSM-IV diagnoses), you’re right up there in the pantheon.

Long after the DSM-IV had been put into print, Dr. Frances talked to Wired’s Greenberg and said the following:

“There is no definition of a mental disorder. It’s bullshit. I mean, you just can’t define it.”


That’s on the order of the designer of the Hindenburg, looking at the burned rubble on the ground, remarking, “Well, I knew there would be a problem.”

After a suitable pause, Dr. Frances remarked to Greenberg, “These concepts [of distinct mental disorders] are virtually impossible to define precisely with bright lines at the borders.”

Frances might have been referring to the fact that his baby, the DSM-IV, had rearranged earlier definitions of ADHD and Bipolar to permit many MORE diagnoses, leading to a vast acceleration of drug-dosing with highly powerful and toxic compounds.

Finally, at the end of the Wired interview, Frances flew off into a bizarre fantasy:

“Diagnosis [as spelled out in the DSM-IV] is part of the magic…you know those medieval maps? In the places where they didn’t know what was going on, they wrote ‘Dragons live here’…we have a dragon’s world here. But you wouldn’t want to be without the map.”

Translation: Patients need hope for the healing of their troubles; so even if we psychiatrists are shooting blanks and pretending to know one kind of mental disorder from another, even if we’re inventing these mental-disorder definitions based on no biological or chemical diagnostic tests—it’s a good thing, because patients will then believe and have hope; because psychiatrists place a label on their problems…

Needless to say, this has nothing to do with science.

Dr. Frances’ work on the DSM-IV allowed for MORE toxic drugs to be prescribed, because the definition of Bipolar was expanded to include more people.

Adverse effects of Valproate (given for a Bipolar diagnosis) include:

* acute, life-threatening, and even fatal liver toxicity;

* life-threatening inflammation of the pancreas;

* brain damage.

Adverse effects of Lithium (also given for a Bipolar diagnosis) include:

* intercranial pressure leading to blindness;

* peripheral circulatory collapse;

* stupor and coma.

Adverse effects of Risperdal (given for “Bipolar” and “irritability stemming from autism”) include:

* serious impairment of cognitive function;

* fainting;

* restless muscles in neck or face, tremors (may be indicative of motor brain damage).

Dr. Frances’ label-juggling act also permitted the definition of ADHD to expand, thereby opening the door for greater and greater use of toxic Ritalin (and other similar compounds) as the treatment of choice.

So what about Ritalin?

In 1986, The International Journal of the Addictions published a most important literature review by Richard Scarnati. It was called “An Outline of Hazardous Side Effects of Ritalin (Methylphenidate)” [v.21(7), pp. 837-841].

Scarnati listed a large number of adverse effects of Ritalin and cited published journal articles which reported each of these symptoms.

For every one of the following (selected and quoted verbatim) Ritalin effects, there is at least one confirming source in the medical literature:

* Paranoid delusions

* Paranoid psychosis

* Hypomanic and manic symptoms, amphetamine-like psychosis

* Activation of psychotic symptoms

* Toxic psychosis

* Visual hallucinations

* Auditory hallucinations

* Can surpass LSD in producing bizarre experiences

* Effects pathological thought processes

* Extreme withdrawal

* Terrified affect

* Started screaming

* Aggressiveness

* Insomnia

* Since Ritalin is considered an amphetamine-type drug, expect
amphetamine-like effects

* Psychic dependence

* High-abuse potential DEA Schedule II Drug

* Decreased REM sleep

* When used with antidepressants one may see dangerous reactions including hypertension, seizures and hypothermia

* Convulsions

* Brain damage may be seen with amphetamine abuse.

A recent survey revealed that a high percentage of children diagnosed with bipolar had first received a diagnosis of ADHD. This is informative, because Ritalin and other speed-type drugs are given to kids who are slapped with the ADHD label. Speed, sooner or later, produces a crash. This is easy to call “clinical depression.”

Then comes Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft. These drugs can produce temporary highs, followed by more crashes. The psychiatrist notices the up and down pattern—and then produces a new diagnosis of Bipolar (manic-depression) and prescribes other drugs, including Valproate and Lithium.

In the US alone, there are at least 300,000 cases of motor brain damage incurred by people who have been prescribed so-called anti-psychotic drugs (aka “major tranquilizers”). Risperdal (mentioned above as a drug given to people diagnosed with Bipolar) is one of those major tranquilizers. (source: “Toxic Psychiatry”, Dr. Peter Breggin, St. Martin’s Press, 1991)

This psychiatric drug plague is accelerating across the land.

Where are the mainstream reporters and editors and newspapers and TV anchors who should be breaking this story and mercilessly hammering on it week after week? They are in harness.

And Dr. Frances is somehow let off the hook. He’s admitted in print that the whole basis of his profession is throwing darts at labels on a wall, and implies the “effort” is rather heroic—when, in fact, the effort leads to more and more poisonous drugs being dispensed to adults and children, to say nothing of the effect of being diagnosed with “a mental disorder.”

I’m not talking about “the mental-disease stigma,” the removal of which is one of Hillary Clinton’s missions in life. No, I’m talking about MOVING A HUMAN INTO THE SYSTEM, the medical apparatus, where the essence of the game is trapping that person to harvest his money, his time, his energy, and of course his health—as one new diagnosis follows on another, and one new toxic treatment after another is undertaken, from cradle to grave.

The result is a severely debilitated human being (if he survives), whose major claim to fame is his list of diseases and disorders.

Thank you, Dr. Frances.

Here is a smoking-gun statement made by another prominent expert, on an episode of PBS’ Frontline series. The episode was: “Does ADHD Exist?”

PBS FRONTLINE 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 (Dr. Russell Barkley, professor of psychiatry and neurology at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center): 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.


Without intending to, Dr. Barkley blows the whistle on his own profession.

So let’s take Dr. Barkley to school. Medical science, and disease-research in particular, rests on the notion that you can make a diagnosis backed up by lab tests. If you can’t produce lab tests, you’re spinning fantasies.

These fantasies might be hopeful, they might be “educated guesses,” they might be launched from traditional centers of learning, they might be backed up by billions of dollars of grant money…but they’re still fantasies.

If I said the moon was made of green cheese, even if I were a Harvard professor, sooner or later someone would ask me to produce a sample of moon rock to be tested for “cheese qualities.” I might begin to feel nervous, I might want to tap dance around the issue, but I would have to submit the rock to a lab.

In his statement to the PBS Frontline interviewer, Dr. Barkley is essentially saying, “There is no lab test for any mental disorder. If a test were the standard of proof, we wouldn’t have science at all, and that would mean our whole profession rests on nothing—and that is absurd, so therefore a test doesn’t matter.”

That logic is no logic at all. Barkley is proving the case against himself. He just doesn’t want to admit it.

Close to 50 years ago, psychiatry was dying out as a profession. Fewer and fewer people wanted to see a psychiatrist for help, for talk therapy. All sorts of new therapies were popping up. The competition was leaving medical psychiatry in the dust.

As Dr. Peter Breggin describes it in his landmark book, Toxic Psychiatry, a deal was struck. Drug companies would bankroll psychiatry and rescue it. These companies would pour money into professional conferences, journals, research. In return, they wanted “science” that would promote mental disease as a biological fact, a gateway into more and more drugs. Everyone would win—except the patient.

So the studies were rolled out, and the list of mental disorders expanded. The FDA was in on the deal as well, as evidenced by their drug “safety” approvals, in the face of the obvious damage these drugs were doing.

So this is how we arrived at where we are. This was the plan, and it worked.

Under the cover story, it was all fraud all the time. Without much of a stretch, you could say psychiatry has been the most widespread profiling operation in the history of the human race. Its goal has been to bring humans everywhere into its system. It hardly matters which label a person is painted with, as long as it adds up to a diagnosis and a prescription of drugs.

I’m aware that some people, reading this far, will still believe that the mental disorders rolled out by psychiatrists are real.

There is an explanation for this.

Psychiatrists may be crazy, but they aren’t necessarily stupid, when it comes to strategy.

They take the very real pain, suffering, anguish, and isolation people experience, and they label it, slice it, dice it; they make it into official categories, disorders—and therefore their “science” seems accurate…because people do feel sad, lonely, isolated.

Then, psychiatrists take one further step. They ceaselessly claim the cause for all this suffering rests in the brain—despite the fact that they have no defining diagnostic tests.

In the absence of tests, they say, “Well, we know this is all about chemical imbalance in the brain.”

Chemical imbalance, chemical imbalance, the heavily funded and promoted mantra.

The public buys in. “Well, sure, that must be it.”

Dr. Ronald Pies, editor-in-chief emeritus of the Psychiatric Times, laid that nonsensical hypothesis to rest in the July 11, 2011, issue of the Times with this staggering admission:

“In truth, the ‘chemical imbalance’ notion was always a kind of urban legend- – never a theory seriously propounded by well-informed psychiatrists.”

For decades the whole basis of psychiatric drug research, drug prescription, and drug sales has been: “we’re correcting a chemical imbalance in the brain.”

The problem was, researchers had never established a normal baseline for chemical balance. So they were shooting in the dark. Worse, they were faking a theory. Pretending they knew something when they didn’t.

In his 2011 piece in Psychiatric Times, Dr. Pies tries to cover his colleagues in the psychiatric profession with this fatuous remark:

“In the past 30 years, I don’t believe I have ever heard a knowledgeable, well-trained psychiatrist make such a preposterous claim [about chemical imbalance in the brain], except perhaps to mock it…the ‘chemical imbalance’ image has been vigorously promoted by some pharmaceutical companies, often to the detriment of our patients’ understanding.”

Absurd. First of all, many psychiatrists have explained and do explain to their patients that the drugs are there to correct a chemical imbalance.

And second, if all well-trained psychiatrists have known, all along, that the chemical-imbalance theory is a fraud…

…then why on earth have they been prescribing tons of drugs to their patients…

…since those drugs are developed on the false premise that they correct the imbalance?

Truth is, the honchos of psychiatry are seeing the handwriting on the wall. Their game has been exposed. They’re taking heavy flack on many fronts.

The chemical imbalance theory is a fake. There are no defining physical tests for any of the 300 so-called mental disorders. All diagnoses are based on arbitrary clusters or menus of human behavior. The drugs are harmful, dangerous, toxic. Some of them induce violence. Suicide, homicide. Some of the drugs cause brain damage.

So the shrinks have to move into another model, another con, another fraud. And they’re looking for one.

For example, genes plus “psycho-social factors.” A mish-mash of more unproven science.

“New breakthrough research on the functioning of genes is paying dividends and holds great promise in the area of mental health…” Professional gibberish.

Meanwhile, the business model demands drug sales.

So even though the chemical-imbalance nonsense has been discredited, it will continue on as a dead man walking, a zombie.

Big Pharma isn’t going to back off. Trillions of dollars are at stake.

You can be sure major Pharma players are meeting behind closed doors with leaders of the American Psychiatric Association (APA). The mafia is making a house call.

They are reminding the APA that they have a deal. No cancellation allowed.

“You guys promoted the chemical-imbalance theory. That was the arrangement. So keep promoting it. We don’t care how many lies you have to tell. Don’t try to develop a conscience all of a sudden. This is business.”

The mafia doesn’t like it when people try to interrupt business.

power outside the matrix

Finally, if psychiatry and its array of mental disorders is complete fraud, from top to bottom, why do so many people “act crazy?” Why do so many people have problems?

If we rule out the people who aren’t “crazy” at all, but are merely failing to fit into the androidal scheme of modern living, there are many answers to that question.

Any honest health practitioner would search for the answers with each individual patient. No more one-size fits all.

Here are a few possibilities: poisonous results of a toxic drug or vaccine; exposure to an environmental toxin; severe nutritional deficits; gross sensitivity-reaction to a food element like gluten; the effects of colors, dyes, and other chemicals in processed foods; physical and emotional abuse and damage; a head injury; oxygen-deficit before or at birth; legitimate fear of violence at home, at school, in the neighborhood; living in an environment lacking basic sanitation; as journalists Joan Swirsky and Caroline Rodgers, and Dr. Pasko Rakic have been pointing out, the effects of ultrasound on pregnant mothers—an issue that needs a great deal more exposure.

Meanwhile, the reality builders continue to expand the structure of psychiatry. For deception, for money, for power, for control.

Psychiatry is a pseudoscience.

A fraud.

    Excellent piece. Thank you.

  2. engelsfrance says:

    I am so glad I found your blog!
    I would like to link both of your articles
    The CDC vaccine…..and all vaccines scandals…..full of mercury, not only linked with autism, but with multiple immune and neurological pathologies!!!
    Mercury is a neurotoxin accumulating in organism, provoking gigantic amount of disorders, auto immune diseases, neuropathy, neurological disease such as Alzheimer’s …rheumatoid pathologies, …..this poison is accumulating in some cells’ organelles, such as mitochondria….but not only… Mitochondria are little organs in our cells in charge of producing energy for our cells….in our entire body. If we do not get energy….we are getting fatigue, neurological issues….depressions….and even DNA mutations! ( sorry for the biology lesson…) mercury is not staying in the blood stream….so when scientist are saying: no issue with mercury…you see ….nothing appears in blood analyzes…they are lying!!! Because mercury IS, when intoxicated, present into every single cell. The only way to detect mercury is to use a chelator, which will catch the mercury around the cells….and eliminate them…..thanks to the ” equilibrium” also called osmosis….( remember…again one biology lesson….chemistry into our body is to tent to reach a balance between both sides of the cells membranes….this is helping mercury to get out of the cell.)…this will be the right time to collect urine for an accurate analyze….and we are blown away by the results…. It is to be noticed mercury is passing through placenta and is present in milk when breast feeding
    Now let me tell you my experience. I new about mercury poisoning symptoms….and I was presenting excruciating face’s and body neuralgias. I got the urine test done appropriately …..and I am…indeed…intoxicated with mercury…and not only…..
    I went to consult many doctors, even a very famous neurologist, who is also a psychotherapist!?…I didn’t even had time to talk about the test….barely about the kind of neuralgia I was presenting….diagnosis came very fast…..psychological disorder….dysthymia …..and diagnosis followed by a drug prescription…..full of anti convulsive and anti depressive medications….and even a pill against bi polar trouble….
    Thanks…I knew I wasn’t presenting a ” coming from nowhere” labelled bipolar syndrome….but was poisoned with mercury from amalgam and vaccination….
    How many person will be under medication for a life time….
    I am in the process of des intoxication of mercury and arsenic….and am already feeling less pain…..
    But this is not the end of the story….both my daughters have been tested positive…( remember…mercury is passing the placenta)…they are 26 and 22 yo…but were both healthy….and recently my oldest daughter who is handling horses….riding…..decided to get a anti titanic vaccine…..she is an adult….she is making her own choices…..and here we are….she is now presenting a polyarthritis rheumatoid disease….
    It means that was one nano gram too much for mercury…inside the vaccine…and turning to be toxic…
    Just imagine if that one drop too much arrived during my pregnancy….26 years earlier… daughter could have presented hyper active or any neurological or psychological irremediable trouble….
    All the persons who received that kind of detox, (if it is applied before neurological definitive degenerative issues…) will witness the same…recover…without anti depressive medications…
    This system is protecting multiple corporations….the vaccine industry, the industry of neurotrophic medications….the dental corporation….(mercury amalgam is way cheaper….)…and the medical corporation…
    So are we really talking about 2 scandals…or about one unique huge scandal….the modern medical World made to produce money…and no health….???
    Thank you for reading me….I hope you will be indulgent with my English….this is my 3 rd language ….however I am writing with passion….and can provide numerous scientific publications…
    Again thank you for your articles!!

    Thank you for this blog post!
    There are a number of good books on this topic, which expose a lot of the fraud that is going on in the psychiatric profession.
    For example: “Anatomy of an Epidemic” and “Mad in America” by Robert Whitaker (,
    “Bad Pharma” by Ben Goldacre. As pointed out in the Article
    “Toxic Psychiatry” by Peter Breggin ( and also of importance in my opinion are the writings by Thomas S. Szasz (

    “Psychiatry is a pseudoscience.” and it is physical brute force. I agree with you on that.

  5. As is the usual,

    A very hard-hitting article.

    Might we also add that the DSV-V has added hundreds more “mental illnesses” to the litany? Most of the newest additions have to do with such behaviors as questioning authority, asserting one’s basic natural rights as inviolable, refusing to give up one’s property upon demand, distrust of government/governmental-authority, etc. . . .

    The infamous “DSM” has most definitely become the tyrants’ favorite tool of suppression of dissent and free-thinking! – There again, the labeling of rebels and resisters as “mentally off” is a game that is virtually as old as the history of empires.

    While we are on the subject of frauds-perpetuated-as-science: We may want to reallt take a closer look at “genetics sciences”. Seems to me that a LOT of behaviors, attitudes, likes and dislikes are being casually blamed on “genes”. They’ve taken what looked to be a promising branch of biology, and are turning it into more excuses for some weird and novel medical “experiements” – all because the individual’s profile deviates outside of the “social norm”.

    We really are living in a dream world. Only, it is someone else’s sick dreams that are becoming reality as it becomes the nightmare for the rest of us!

    – Rev. Dragon’s Eye

  6. People act crazy as a strategy to escape personal responsibility. “But judge, the disorder made me do it!” Let’s recognize that as with The Inquisition and the witch hunts, psychiatry would have a much harder time existing if majorities were not so intolerant of social nonconformity. Psychiatry stands ready to validate with labels any prejudices the majority expresses. The mental “health” movement poses numerous inconsistencies. “Mental illness is like any other illness” is an oft repeated mantra. However, since psychiatry is a repression tool of the state, carefully note that policemen virtually never have any psychiatric labels slapped onto them—including those few who offend so seriously that courts and juries must send them to prison. Police are never labeled “disordered,” because the state seldom uses one faction of its enforcers to attack another group of its enforcers. Therefore, being a policeman confers virtual immunity against mental “illness” labeling. Not only psychiatrists, but psychologists, “clinical” or otherwise, and social workers, are all literally stuffed full of obnoxious malarkey.

  7. Sherlock says:

    Great article!

    Most of the times when I talk with people about this subject, soon or later they reach the treshold. They know there’s something wrong, but at the same time, they want to stop talking about it. They just can’t accept this reality, because you know… The legal departement uses psychiatrists for some cases, the government does nothing about that, medias remain silent about the fraud… and the inaction of the government, etc. By accepting all of this, they would be already deep in the rabbit hole, so they slump back into the matrix. They feel more comfortable.

    There’s some good free documentaries on Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) website. You can hear Dr. Allen Frances’ comments around 20 :40 & 37 :40 in this one (Diagnostic & Statistical Manual: Psychiatry’s Deadliest Scam) :

    There’s a others good comments. For example :

    12 :05 – Comments from members of DSM decision making panel regarding how a disorder is voted in or voted out of the DSM.

    1.10 :00 – Comments on the DSM V, including Dr. Thomas Insel (Director of the U.S. National Institute of Mental Health) : ” I don’t DO DSM. I’m not involved. And that maybe tells you more than anything. The National Institute of Mental Health is not involved with DSM 5″

  8. I would encourage anyone who wants to find some truths about psychiatry to check out the book The Tell Tale Brain: Written by a neurophysiologist, it gives many insights into how the brain works and how it can go wrong – leading to many ‘illnesses’ that pshychiatry treats with drugs and nonsense.

    In my sweet home state you can have your spouse court ordered hauled away just by your say so and no endangerment to themselves. I know, a psychiatrist here told me woman’s rights were being violated but no advocacy….

  11. ADHD is an invented illness. Leon Eisenberg (the inventor) himself is said to have admitted that on his deathbed.

    I have a very good report on the subject here (unfortunately only in German):

    Even with this article though, published in the influential Frankfurter Allgemeine, nothing has changed. I have – being a private tutor – seen many ADHD-Ritalin-“cases”. Nobody is out to stop this madness. (We have had an exponential increase in Ritalin-“medication” in the last decade…)

  12. Nick Cole says:

    Jon, you are my favorite blogger on this topic.

    I am currently in my FOURTH YEAR of psych drug withdrawal with no sign of relent and the suffering is horrendous all b/c I bought into the lies and bullshit put out there by Psychiatry. I initially was put on meds for “work-related stress”. If that’s a “mental disorder”, everyone in the world probably has it. Then, when I began to have severe symptoms BECAUSE OF the medication that mimicked so-called “mental illness”, I was labelled with more diagnoses and drugged further. I trusted them and believed what I was being told b/c they were the doctors and so-called “professionals”. I’ve met so many people like myself over the last 4 years who are all suffering and left to hide out in their homes away from any medical doctor who can harm them further (if you tell them what you’re experiencing THEY DON’T BELIEVE YOU or DENY IT’S POSSIBLE or try to diagnose you with MORE “mental illnesses” and put you on MORE DRUGS) and suffer alone in silence. I think eventually, they will harm enough people where their victims will outnumber them and the truth will come out once all of their victims find a way to be a unified voice against Psychiatry.

    Anyhow, I just wanted to tell you that I appreciate your no-bullshit, tell it like it is approach and look forward to reading your blog whenever you post something new. Thank you!

        Don’t laugh, but schedule an appointment with a professional hypnotist. I cannot, in the space of the comment section here, do proper justice to the power of suggestion when it comes to beating addiction and it’s effects. It would be difficult to believe if I wasn’t living proof. Three treatments and I walked away from cigarettes after quitting and failing for 40+ years. No cravings, withdrawal, night sweats, no remorse. It really is magic, if such a thing exists.

  13. Dave says:

    Everyone knows somebody that’s just plain crazy by any definition, but how many know such a person who was cured by Psychiatry? I would be interested in hearing about any such case that’s occurred outside of the movies.

  14. Fat Mucket says:

    Rappoport’s article basically says it all. The way to brainwash a public is tell them something is bad or they’re bad, tell them it’s not their fault or responsibility, tell them only you can ‘fix’ it, then drug them to make them even more suggestible and brainwash-able. Which is why society now almost instantly equates and parrots anything of a bad psychological or emotional nature as being ‘depression’ ‘adhd’ ‘bipolar’ ‘anxiety’ etc. (a few of Psychiatry’s approx. 370 disorders). That is the behemoth brainwashing drugging machine of Psychiatry.

  15. Great article, Jon! I am glad that a mental health activist alerted me to this! Have loved your writing for a long time and now starting my own in our adventures in medical and traumatic brain injury where they prescribe mega doses of psychiatric drugs (some even do ECT) on survivors. Talk about a double whammy to the brain!

  16. winkelr says:

    “… Psychiatry is not about medicine in the commonly understood sense. Real medicine is [supposed to be] guided by the maxim “First, do no harm”, and values the integrity and self-determination of the individual above all else. Instead, psychiatry is about the one thing that shrinks never mention: power. Power imbalances and powerlessness are quite obviously the primary preventable causes of emotional suffering in humanity. Indeed, many if not most cases of “depression” could be more aptly described as “internalized oppression”. Power over one’s own life is a bare minimum requirement for happiness and mental health. Yet psychiatry’s first step is to take away power, to infantilize and objectify the patient and pathologize a hypothetical “disease” which is functionally indistinguishable from the patient itself.

    “By implicitly and automatically accepting the power status quo and, in effect, enforcing it, psychiatry is a major source of human misery and oppression among the powerless, and a costly and often traumatic detour from emotional healing and “mental health.” Furthermore, despite its supposed campaign against the stigmatization of the “mentally ill,” psychiatry itself is the source of most of that stigma: the “medicalization” of injustice necessarily results in the dehumanization and marginalization of its victims, who are seen as incompetent and without legitimate grievances in the public eye. This process of marginalization has the added benefit of alienating public compassion, which allows shrinks to run their punitive, profitable fiefdoms without outside interference.

    “Thus the analogy between forced psychiatry and the Catholic Inquisition goes deeper than human rights abuse. In many ways, psychiatry could be said to be the Church of the Status Quo, the medical face of fascism. It’s a powerful and violent tool of social control in a deeply unjust and dysfunctional society.”
