People Who Resist Authority, Stand Up for Privacy, Could Be Classified As Mentally ILL

My favorite is the name/acronym used for this illness: Oppositional Defiant Disorder (O.D.D)

If you are a nonconformist who speaks up in defense of freedom and privacy, then you might be interested to know that some psychiatrists might recommend that you should be "cured" or locked away in a mental institution.

BY law the governmnet is under the

authority of the people.

Priceless

What a priceless moment of putting foot in one's mouth.

If he only knew he was a traitor to our Freedom, way of life, and the very substance of America, he would be ashamed and offer a humble apology and retraction.

Officials are lifting up their heads in wickedness with no fear of the people.

And as Thomas Jefferson said, that is the very definition of "tyranny."

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

In the old days

Americans were noncomformist (rugged individualist) and Americans defended freedom and privacy. So to be an American today is considered to be mentally ill and requiring to be locked away.

Seems to me these people are the unAmericans spewing lies, subversion and propaganda to dismantle and destroy America and the solid character traits that created America. So who then is mentally ill (insane)? Who then ought to be locked away?

Thirty years ago these people would have been rounded up for subversion and unAmerican activities. Why is this happening?

Perhaps I Need a Doctor

After reading this, I'm experiencing strange symptoms like involuntary disbelief, head shaking and diaphragm spasms - also known as laughter.

How insane can the world of the 'sane and rational' become?

If you ever visit Russia

ask the people there about the asylums and they'll explain exactly what this program is all about. Great way to control dissent and enslave the population. We need to start a counter program locking away anyone who DOES NOT question authority. THESE PERSONALITY TYPES are a threat to the theft of your money and your liberty.
If we don't hang together we all hang separately.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

Particularly intersting is the apparent history of "ODD". Scroll down to the section "Disbelief in Mental "Illness"" and read about the disorder of slaves who wished to escape ("drapetomania") and the classification of a disorder in the former USSR of people who wanted to emigrate.

Thanks- that's a very interesting article. Dr. Szasz is

Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at Syracuse University. It's interesting, in your article it says that 25% of the students came there specifically to study with him. Here is an excellent article by him called The Shame of Medicine; the Depravity of Psychiatry, from Reason Magazine: http://www.szasz.com/freeman33.pdf

I am sure that comes as a relief to Liberals and Neocons

since they run little danger of being classified as mentally ill subject to government roundup.

"My favorite is the name/acronym used for this illness: Oppositional Defiant Disorder (O.D.D)" Is that what they're calling patriots nowadays?

Just like the Chinese dissidents. Sounds like we're next.

If you can't beat 'em...

Go get your diagnosis, then apply for disability. Then you will have the time and money to be oppositional and defiant full time.

That's finding the silver lining

ICE is hiring psychiatrists for detention centers

http://www.simplyhired.com/job-id/qdko7to37s/psychiatrist-jobs/

I can't find the original ad I saw for this...but it went into great detail about other things the psychiatrist is expected to do that didn't seem to involve patient care but was really weird. I'll try to find the original ad I saw. Plus it's strange the gov't is not hiring, it's this private agency.

this is the part of the ad I thought was strange

PURPOSE OF CONTACTS Performs professional and administrative functions focusing on the recovery or stabilization of patients in need of mental health services in the DIHS. The purpose is to justify, defend, negotiate, or settle matters involving significant or controversial issues. The work usually involves active participation in conferences, meetings, hearings, or presentations involving problems or issues of considerable consequence or importance. The people contacted typically have diverse viewpoints, goals, or objectives requiring the incumbent to achieve a common understanding of the problem and a satisfactory solution by convincing them, arriving at a compromise, or developing suitable alternatives.

Can we certify the US govt as mentally ill?

And put it in a institution with rubber rooms?

?

Why waste the rubber?

And when you consider that

And when you consider that the Federal Government is the single biggest employer in the land, with millions on the take, we would need to have a worldwide tire drive to supply the padding.

Way off topic, but this fact is a problem for our movement. Too many of our fellow citizens are living off the central government in one way or another... either through direct employment and entitlement pay offs, or through industries such as defense contractors, law firms, civilian subcontractors, etc. This makes the going even tougher for a movement that seeks to shrink centralized power for the benefit of all, even those who have been seduced by its comforts.

Well, with the way they treat

Well, with the way they treat their own people you might say that the gov is possibly paranoid schizoprenic...

I guess if it's good enough for

the former Rabbi of Tarsus and Y'shua, It's good enough for me.

"Seems that I've thought of Him all of my life as 'the wisest of all of mankind', but if God's holy wisdom is foolish to man, He must have seemed out of His mind. Even His family thought He was mad, and the priests said, "A demon's to blame.", but God in the form of this angry young man could not have seemed perfectly sane." ~~ Michael Card, God's Own Fool.

"Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern." ~~C.S. Lewis
