Is ‘Mental’ Ilnness & ‘Addiction’ Simply an Excuse for ongoing Bad Behavior?


Mental illness and Addiction are both categories of behaviors that are impossible to prove as ‘diseases’.  In fact, if you go to 10 different psychiatrists, you will get 10 different diagnoses!  Have you ever thought about why that happens?  That said, we have to consider two things…1) Why are they both pushed as diseases when it’s simply nothing more than a theory, and 2) How much do these categories contribute to the wealth of those in the medical and psychiatric fields plus Big Pharma?

Conservatively speaking, psychiatry is over a $40,000,000,000 industry.  Not bad for a bunch of theories that aren’t real.  This pales to Big Pharma’s income of $60,000,000,000,000.  Add to this equation that not one psychiatric illness is definitive because etiology is unknown…symptoms are common from one ‘disorder’ to another…and, these ‘disorders’ are all THEORIES that make big bucks.

Here’s just a short list of ‘disease’ tags the psychiatrists give kids…then, they medicate.  At least insurance pays mega bucks.  So, check out these few below and ask yourself, ‘REALLY’???????  A little discipline, tools for parents and family talk therapy would do it far better without creating zombies.

  • Autism Spectrum Disorders (Formerly Asperger’s, Autistic Disorder, & Rett’s)
  • Attachment Disorder
  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD/ADD)
  • Autism
  • Conduct Disorder
  • Disorder of Written Expression
  • Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder
  • Encopresis
  • Enuresis
  • Expressive Language Disorder
  • Mathematics Disorder
  • Mental Retardation, see Intellectual Disability 
  • Oppositional Defiant Disorder

  • Rumination Disorder
  • Selective Mutism
  • Separation Anxiety Disorder

Personally, I think the ‘disease’ is that of psychiatry.

More to come tomorrow.

Electroshock therapy still used in USA – boy tortured with 31 shocks over 7 hours, strapped to table


Electroshock treatment—also known as electro-convulsive therapy (ECT)—and psychosurgery “treatments” are reportedly trying to stage a comeback. Yet, since their inception, these procedures have been dogged by conflict between the ECT psychiatrists who swear by them, and the multitudes of victims and families of victims whose lives have been completely ruined by them.

So who is telling the truth? Anyone who has seen and been sickened by a recording of an actual ECT or psychosurgery procedure knows the answer too well. They have all the marks of physical torture methods that might instead belong in the armory of a KGB (secret police of the former Soviet Union) interrogator, rather than in the inventory of a “medical practitioner.” However, very few people have seen such recordings, including, it would seem, those who legislate their mandatory use—and fewer still have witnessed them firsthand.

Psychiatrists deceptively cloak these procedures with medical legitimacy: the hospital setting, white-coated assistants, anesthetics, muscle paralyzing drugs and sophisticated-looking equipment. The effects of shock treatment are horrific, but the full ramifications are not explained to the patients or families. Worse, when objections are raised, they are overruled.

That those procedures are extremely profitable to psychiatrists and hospitals, while resulting in continued long and expensive psychiatric “care” afterward, guaranteeing future business and income to the psychiatrist, is not mentioned in conversations to convince the unwilling or unsuspecting.

And, as Maria Garcia [not her real name] would attest, if all else fails, psychiatrists will readily resort to coercion or fear to extract “consent” for treatment.

Maria, a middle-aged Hispanic housewife, consulted a psychiatrist after feelings of depression persisted and was prescribed psychiatric drugs. After experiencing uncontrollable body movements—the direct result of drug-induced damage to her nervous system—the psychiatrist recommended ECT. She refused, but when later admitted to the hospital for drug detoxification treatment, ECT was recommended again. Although she resisted, the psychiatrist told her, “Your fears are nothing but Cuban superstitions” and “unless you have these treatments you are going to die.” She was given five shock treatments.

Her husband relates what happened: “As a result of the ECT treatments…my wife’s memory has been greatly impaired….Although she spoke English as a second language for fourty-two years, she has lost most of her ability to speak and understand it….The whole experience has been a deception, a lie, a bully’s punch….Her depression was not cured and her memory is quite defective now…we are both enraged at what has taken place. I feel as if she had been raped right in front of my eyes.”

With literally billions in profits realized from ECT and psychosurgery, there is an appalling level of misinformation about them today, most of it spread by psychiatrists. There are many scientists critical of the procedure.

Dr. John Friedberg, a neurologist who researched the effects of ECT for over thirty years, stated, “It is very hard to put into words just what shock treatment does to people generally.…it destroys people’s ambition, and…their vitality. It makes people rather passive and apathetic.…Besides the amnesia, the apathy and the lack of energy is, in my view, the reason that…[psychiatrists] still get away with giving it.”

Mary Lou Zimmerman understands about losing her ambition and her vitality at the hands of a psychiatrist. In June 2002, a jury ordered the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio to pay $7.5 million (€6 million) to the 62-year-old following a horrific psychosurgery operation. Mrs. Zimmerman had sought treatment for compulsive hand washing after she read glowing reports about the procedure on the clinic’s website. The reality was a nightmare. She was subjected to an operation in which four holes were drilled into her head and sections of her brain, each approximately the size of a marble, were removed. After the ordeal, she found she was unable to walk, stand, eat or use the bathroom by herself. Her attorney, Robert Linton, stated, “She lost everything—except her awareness of how she’s now different.…She is completely disabled and needs full-time care.”

Today, the psychiatric industry in the United States alone takes an estimated $5 billion (€4 billion) from ECT per year. In the US, 65-year-olds receive three hundred and sixty percent more electroshock than 64-year-olds, since Medicare (government health insurance) takes effect at age 65, evidence that the use of ECT is guided, not by medical compassion, but by profit and greed. Although psychosurgery is less common today, up to three hundred operations are still performed every year in the United States, including the notorious prefrontal lobotomy.

In spite of their sophisticated trappings of science, the brutality of ECT and psychosurgery verifies that psychiatry has not advanced beyond the cruelty and barbarism of its earliest treatments. This report has been written to help ensure that just as whipping, leeching and flogging are now unlawful, these “treatments” should be prohibited or prosecuted for the criminal assault they are.

Child Drugging: Psychiatry Destroying Lives


The article below can be found HERE.  I felt it very necessary to republish this.

Newspaper articles often trumpet the “wonders” of modern day psycho-pharmaceutical research for the treatment of childhood learning and emotional “problems” and “disabilities.”

They sound reasonable. They sound convincing—science again conquers our material universe for the benefit of Mankind. Who could possibly argue with making a normal life possible for those in trouble?

Daniel’s parents would. And so would Cory’s. They would argue vehemently and passionately. And with more than 20 million school children worldwide said to have a mental disorder that requires them to be chemically restrained by powerful mind-altering psychiatric drugs, these parents are far from alone.

Who are Daniel and Cory and why do their parents disagree? They are children who are not only unable to lead normal lives because of so-called “miracle” drugs; they are tragically no longer with us at all, because of those drugs.

I invite you to analyze the above illustration more closely from the point of view of children, because the reality and the labels may not reflect the same thing when it comes to psychiatry’s “drugs of the moment.”

Reflect on several of the words and how they are used. Take “normal,” for example. You probably have your own idea of what a normal sort of life is. Does it involve the consumption of addictive, mind-altering and deadly psychiatric drugs? Does it involve a total reliance on such drugs to remain normal?

What about the word “medications?” Does it ease your mind by conjuring up images of some benign cough syrup prescribed by a kindly family doctor? Nothing could be further from the truth. A psychiatric medication is a very powerful addictive drug.

Then there is the term “scientific,” often used by psychiatry to add legitimacy to its pronouncements. According to the World Book Dictionary, the word implies “systematic; accurate; exact.” Those characteristics have nothing to do with psychiatry or, for that matter, its cousin, psychology.

Examples of other words which suffer at their hands are “values,” “right,” “wrong,” “safe,” even “education.”

This is the subtle propaganda of the psychiatrist and psychologist at work—the redefinition of words. Somehow in their hands, things just seem to get all twisted about and eventually fall apart.

The trouble is that their worldwide propaganda on the subject of children and education has thoroughly duped well-meaning parents, teachers and politicians alike, that “normal”—there’s that word again—childhood behavior is no longer normal; that it is a mental illness. And further, that only by continuous, heavy drugging from a very early age, can the “afflicted” child possibly make it through life’s worst.

Who would have thought years ago that we could have come to this? Nevertheless we are here, and the harsh reality is that as a result, precious young lives all over the world are at serious risk, permanently damaged, even lost to us.

Contrary to psychiatric opinion, children are not “experimental animals.” They are human beings who have every right to expect protection, care, love and the chance to reach their full potential in life. A chance denied them by psychiatry’s labels and chemical straitjackets.

We are making this report, Child Drugging—Psychiatry Destroying Lives, available to expose the lies and propaganda at work, to provide a perspective and information not made readily available to parents and others concerned, and most importantly to help bring sanity and control back to the care and nurturing of our children.

Children are our future.

There is nothing less at stake here than our very future itself.
