When deranged psychiatrists became social justice warriors

When deranged psychiatrists became social justice warriors

January 30, 2018

I wrote and posted this article on October 11, 2012. What I revealed then is still happening now. I offer the article as an illustration of how far “social justice” can go in actually punishing people classified as victims—not helping them as advertised.

Buckle up:

It’s the latest thing. Psychiatrists are now giving children in poor neighborhoods Adderall, a dangerous medical stimulant, by making false diagnoses of ADHD, or no diagnoses at all.

Their aim? “Promote social justice,” to improve academic performance in school.

The rationale is, the drugged kids will now be able to compete with children from wealthier families who attend better schools.

Leading the way is Dr. Michael Anderson, a pediatrician in the Atlanta area. Incredibly, Anderson told the New York Times his diagnoses of ADHD are “made up,” “an excuse” to hand out the drugs.

“We’ve decided as a society that it’s too expensive to modify the kid’s environment. So we have to modify the kid,” Anderson said.

It would be hard to find a clearer mission statement from a psychiatrist: mind control.

A researcher at Washington University in St. Louis, Dr. Ramesh Raghavan, goes even further with this chilling comment: “We are effectively forcing local community psychiatrists to use the only tool at their disposal [to “level the playing field” in low-income neighborhoods], which is psychotropic medicine.”

So pressure is being brought to bear on psychiatrists to carry out and sustain a heinous behavior modification program, using drugs, against children in inner cities.

It’s important to realize that all psychotropic stimulants, like Adderall and Ritalin, can cause aggressive behavior, violent behavior.

What we’re seeing here is a direct parallel to the old CIA program, exposed by the late journalist, Gary Webb, who detailed the importing of crack cocaine (another kind of stimulant) into South Central Los Angeles.

It is widely acknowledged, and admitted in the Times article, that the effects of ADHD drugs on children’s still-developing brains are unknown. Therefore, the risks of the drugs are great. At least one leading psychiatrist, Peter Breggin, believes there is significant evidence that these stimulants can cause atrophy of the brain.

Deploying the ADHD drugs creates symptoms which may then be treated with compounds like Risperdal, a powerful anti-psychotic, which can cause motor brain damage.

All this, in service of “social justice” for the poor.

And what about the claim that ADHD drugs can enhance school performance?

The following pronouncement makes a number of things clear: The 1994 Textbook of Psychiatry, published by the American Psychiatric Press, contains this review (Popper and Steingard): “Stimulants [given for ADHD] do not produce lasting improvements in aggressivity, conduct disorder, criminality, education achievement, job functioning, marital relationships, or long-term adjustment.”

So the whole basis for this “social justice” program in low-income communities—that the ADHD drugs will improve school performance of kids and “level the playing field,” so they can compete academically with children from wealthier families—this whole program is based on a lie to begin with.

Meddling with the brains of children via these chemicals constitutes criminal assault, and it’s time it was recognized for what it is.

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]. Adderall and other ADHD medications are all in the same basic class; they are stimulants, amphetamine-type substances.

Scarnati listed a large number of adverse affects 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.

In what sense are the ADHD drugs “social justice?” The reality is, they are chemical warfare. Licensed predators are preying on the poor.

The US government, through a labyrinth of rules and licensing requirements, has established psychiatry as a virtual monopoly in the arena of “mental health.” To say this act is unconstitutional would be a vast understatement.

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/chemical fact, a gateway into scores of new drugs. Everyone would win—except the patient.

So the studies were rolled out, and the list of mental disorders expanded by leaps and bounds. 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.

And now, as a “humanitarian gesture,” psychiatrists are handing out ADHD drugs in poor neighborhoods, to children, without the slightest concern, in order to bring social justice to the downtrodden.

Finally, like all other so-called mental disorders, ADHD is diagnosed on the basis of behavior alone. That’s how it was, yes, invented in the first place. There are no defining diagnostic physical tests—no blood, urine, saliva tests, no brain scans, no genetic assays.

Let that sink in.

The whole business is a charade, with toxic consequences.

If that’s social justice, it only exists in the demented minds of psychiatrists.

    The “medical intervention” begins at birth, with babies being vaccinated before they are even released from the hospital. One of the dozens of ‘adverse events’ that can occur from vaccination is neurological damage of various kinds.

    Everyone concerned about the increase of violence, suicide, homicide,self-cutting, etc. in young people should read, “Vaccination, Social Violence, and Criminality” by Harris Coulter, PhD.

    Dr. Guylaine Lanctot also addresses this in her book, “Vaccination, The Silent Genocide.”

    • sundancer55 says:

      The trouble with defending vaccines to doctors is that if a symptom doesn’t show up while in the actual presence of the doctor, immediately after the vaccine, he will not believe you or any of your suspicions, and he will say you are wearing a tin foil hat. I’ve seen it happen dozens of times. They simply refuse to believe (or are paid NOT to believe) the truth from patients.

  2. From Quebec says:

    I much prefer this Psychiatrist…LOL (Funny and only 6 minutes

    No nonsense psychiatry: not years and years of talking

    • I think you would enjoy Dr. Jordan Peterson.
      The man is brilliant!

      You should see how the left attacks him

      • truth1 says:

        Jordan is superb. I have seen a number of his videos. And he is in Canada, the ultra liberal capitol of madness, leftists, and wackos.

      • Greg C. says:

        I hadn’t heard of him until I read your comment, HL. Now I’ve had a chance to watch a few of his videos. There are plenty of people who can analyze and talk about sociological, historical, and political trends, but the way he grounds it all in the phenomenon we call the self is unique. Not just shallow motivations, but describing the framework, the rules of the game we inherited, wired into our nervous system. Which of course is valuable information in knowing how the manipulation game is played. Thanks for sharing that.

        • honestliberty says:

          Yep. He’s a great asset to humanity and although I’m not 100% in agreement with him, he’s so darn articulate and composed. I really wish we could get more collaboration across the non-mainstream press. Significantly more collaboration and results driven practical solutions to reign in the Marxist/collectivist globalist terrorism

  3. alan foos says:

    Most people don’t know that any licensed MD can call himself a psychiatrist, dodge legitimate medical tests, swindle up a mental disorder and start pouring on prescriptions for psychoactives. Indeed, almost all American MDs will do this both individually and as a team because the commissions from psychoactives and fake medicine are fat and never ending. It would be no surprise if most of them would lobotomize their own mothers for a small recurring fee.

  4. truth1 says:

    J. P. Morgan said that there are two reasons someone gives for wanting financing money. The good reason, and the real reason. Government is not stranger to this tactic. the supposed good reason for help the poor and disadvantaged (but never lazy, right?) and the real reason. if the poor had wallow in misery for their lack, they might resent government. So for a slight bribe of welfare, the poor remain silent and trapped. Government wants to help? Oh sure, And so does the Easter Bunny, so he tells me. that’s the excuse. the real reason is to keep the poor stupid with drugs that “are good for them” but are really “bad for them.” the job of the poor is to break the economy AND, in time, become a force to destroy the nation thru ethnic division. Well, its very effective and a very historic track record. Assyria carted off the northern tribes of Israel to the land of the Medes and replace them with other peoples.

    Then Babylon conquered Judah and brought them to Babylon for 50 years. Because they were small in numbers, they were no threat to Babylon. Daniel 2 describes feet made of iron and clay, representing many different peoples mixed together but not cleaving or cooperating with each other. Zechariah does predict an all out war of the peoples against each other.

    We are seeing it loud and clear and yet few are concerned. that is why few were impressed with the movie “Network,” we discussed a day or so back. I saw this last night on MeTV.

    The Twilight Zone To Serve Man, 1962
    An alien race comes to Earth, promising peace and sharing technology. A linguist and his team set out to translate the aliens’ language, using a book whose title they deduce is “To Serve Man”.
    Some of the promises:
    Everything is going to be wonderful.
    T1>>I feel like it was a warning. No one questioned it. So it will be.<<
    No more war, no more suffering, no more . . .
    Embassies all over the world. The most historic event of mankind.
    It ends up a trap where humans will be eaten.

    Than at the end, the main character who knows he will be eaten, comes right to the camera, right in our faces and say to the TV audience: "How about you! Sooner or later we’ll all be on the menu."

    So now I ask, was this just entertainment or were we being delivered a severe warning? I say they were rubbing it in our faces. There is only one way to avoid it, and some would prefer death to that.

    But i say this. Aliens will be landing and the result of joining them and the result of going along with them will end in death. The Twilight Zone was prophesying. So its not just a bible thing. Everyone is getting in on it now.

    And there was a hilarious spoof of this episode on the Simpson in one of their Halloween Specials.
    "How to cook for humans."

    The poor and and the stupid will never see it coming. dem dare drugs is sooooo goood. Anyone want some koolaid?. Do you like Grape flavor? Its all I got. 😛

  5. thanks Jon R. says:

    This is the field of witches and a witches favorite form of assault and entrapment is poisoning – it’s in the food, the building materials, chemtrails/air, ‘meds’ everything. It’s an onslaught, the only way the can keep their heads above water and not be hunted down. Been that way for millennia. When will the hunt to extinction begin?

  6. JB says:

    “It is widely acknowledged, and admitted in the Times article, that the effects of ADHD drugs on children’s still-developing brains are unknown. Therefore, the risks of the drugs are great.” writes Jon

    Is the second sentence a logical conclusion? If the effects of such drugs on developing brains are UNKNOWN, then how does one know how great the risks are? They could be zero, infinite, or somewhere in between.

    This is the same kind of fallacious reasoning that Einstein used in his mathematics. Zero and Infinity have a tenuous relationship, but they are not identical, and by definition, proscribe any mathematical operations. Yet Albert tried to do just that, and it was that kind of muddy thinking that provoked the village instructors of his youth to declare he was an idiot.

    Building an edifice of ideas upon thoughts of “can” as opposed to “will” is fallacious and illogical. (This is a common tool of propaganda.) What is known is that drugs designed to control the natural process of neuro-transmission actually damage the mechanism by its interference.

    What is also known is that Psychiatry employs the tool of metaphor extensively (the same as propaganda) to induce the target’s (“patient”) thinking to align with the perpetrator’s (“therapist”). As such it (along with all the behavioral professions) has emerged among professions as a psuedo-science of lies.

  7. peter littlehorse says:

    And that’s where the lies started about ‘mental issues’ being caused by an imbalance of chemicals in the brain.

  8. Primum Novitate says:

    I’m glad someone else out here is even bothering to MENTION the racket of psychiatry. Picking up the torch for Szasz and Foucault is a great thing to do, or else we’d just have Scientology doing it, who are doing a good job, but Scientology has issues all its own. This is a serious issue that deserves everyone’s attention! There is also the matter of psychotronics as a modern technological “adjuvant” and “force multiplier” for various mind control regimes of which psychiatry is an important pseudo-scientific and social support element.

  9. Reblogged this on AfterHollywood and commented:
    Putting our children in harm’s way by forcing them to take drugs at a young age is not suitable for their brains.

  10. truth1 says:

    You know, really psychiatrists and psychiatry are really the ministers of propaganda,posing as “doctors” because its supposedly a science and scientists are one and all, paragons of virtue, integrity and infallibility.

  11. Sci-reader says:

    Check out “Drugs and Guns Don’t Mix: Medication Madness and Mass Shootings” by Gary G. Kohls, MD, in Duluth reader.com, October 5, 2017. The author argues that mass shootings are iatrogenic illnesses, the result of adverse reactions to psychiatric drugs.

    • alan foos says:

      I’ve always thought the same. Very nearly all the school shooting were done by people on psychotropic drugs. You can even watch a video of the Virginia Tech shooter expressing his outrage over being force fed these drugs which made it very clear this was the major factor in what he did.

  12. Reblogged this on Essays w/ SA and commented:
    I watched a movie on Netflix that was titled, Take Your Pills, and it made me think about this a lot. The movie talked about the “ADHD” that is labeled on children and how this outcome doesn’t help society, if you want to read more about the movie and what its argument consisted of NBC News published a glimpse of it on March 16th. https://www.nbcnews.com/video/-smart-drug-abuse-is-focus-of-netflix-documentary-take-your-pills-1187536963956?v=a
