The rise of the Psychiatric State under Obamacare

Jon Rappoport
Activist Post

Come down the road of history and watch the vast parade. There were the cave people, with their fear of the thunder and lightning and the forces behind them; there were the priesthoods rattling gourds and pointing scepters; there were the supposed witches, and the alchemists, and the prophets who, we’re to believe, deeded their highest ideas to bureaucrats and killers who would build churches in their name…

And after a time, science emerged, and all was well. Finally. A science of the brain, and of the abnormal patterns. In their great beneficence, governments determined that these scientists should rule that brain…

And here we are.

The regulations differ according to which insurance policy people have, but the overall Obamacare thrust is in the direction of enforcing coverage “parity” between physical and mental illness.

This means more and more people are going to be sitting in psychiatrists’ offices, describing their problems and issues; the psychiatrists will be making more and more unscientific diagnoses of mental disorders; and they will be prescribing more toxic and dangerous drugs to patients.

There is a cultural sea change underway as well. The whole op is to legitimize mental health treatment for everybody. Having a disorder will eventually be as common as having the flu or a cold. “We’re all disordered.”

Children will be saying they have ADHD, clinical depression, and bipolar even before a shrink slaps on a diagnosis. It’s the “in” thing to do.

People, naturally, will find more ways to explain, rationalize, and excuse their own dissatisfying lives—whatever works to get off the hook.

Political and economic oppression will be reframed as mental-health issues for the victims.

Worse yet, as I’ve exhaustively demonstrated in many articles and lectures, psychiatry is a pseudoscience. The 300 officially certified distinct mental disorders are all fraudulent.

There is no physical diagnostic test for any of the them. They are menus and collections of behaviors drawn up by committees of psychiatrists—and then stamped with labels.

The drugs to treat them are all toxic and destructive. Some of the drugs (and withdrawing from all of them) cause violent behavior, including suicide and homicide.

But given the opportunity by insurance coverage, millions of Americans will spring into action and offer themselves up for diagnosis and treatment. They’ll wear their diagnoses like badges of honor in the “new society.”

People who speak out against the political establishment, who advocate for less government, who champion freedom, will find themselves ridiculed to a greater degree than ever before…and under certain circumstances will be coerced into the psychiatric hive.

This is a gravy train for some, and a death machine for many.

The rank absurdity and illegality of government allying itself with psychiatry escapes most people’s attention. It’s all good, because government “wants to help.”

I, for one, don’t want to help in that way. I want to see people have more power. I don’t want to see lives going down the psychiatric-drug drain. I don’t think connecting thought and action to disorders solves anything. It only makes things worse. I don’t want to deal with people who view life through the lens of disorders.

I don’t give a damn what psychiatrists and their followers say about the brain and the mind. I don’t think we should be trailing along behind these so-called professionals and picking up their tidbits of manufactured hoke, or cleaning up the the ruined psyches they leave in their wake.

I don’t care what government officials say about mental health. Let them eat Thorazine. Let them submit to the drugs and experience the outcome first-hand. Let them taste the fruits of the monopoly they’re enabling.

I don’t believe the results of published psychiatric studies. I’ve seen how often they lie and twist facts.

Psychiatry is just one more priest class. It spins its own cosmology and appoints itself to a higher echelon of knowledge. It tries to grind down independent spirits. It tries to sterilize life-force.

What GMOs and herbicides are doing to food, psychiatry is doing to minds: making them synthetic.

I wouldn’t give a so-called mental-health expert the time of day.

In a sane court of law, with the whole edifice exposed down to its rotten core, any such expert would be prosecuted for crimes against humanity.

Stripping away the psychiatric verbiage, you can see the old conditioned-reflex philosophy of human existence laid bare. These charlatans view people as nothing more than walking-talking biological equipment.

Which speaks to the paucity of a cogent and forceful counter-argument: we aren’t mechanisms. We’re conscious beyond any processes of the brain.

What street drugs do to people is but a shadow of the damage wrought by psychiatric medicines. They sedate and torque brains into passive submission and despair. Doctors call it treatment. This chicanery and massive destruction can only continue if people surrender standards of comparison, surrender concepts of freedom, commitment, achievement, creative power.

In other words, a decline and disintegration of personal values underlie the acceptance of psychiatry. We can tap-dance our way around this one until the cows come home and nothing will alter the fact.

The country is being eaten out from the inside. It has been going on for a long time. People have sacrificed their own power on the basis that “it doesn’t really matter, only minor pleasures are important, and nobody actually built what they built.”

Anaerobic psychiatry flourishes and expands in this oxygen-deprived atmosphere.

People who are educated and inquisitive ask where the subject of philosophy has gone in modern civilization. It has retreated into 300 spacious categories of mental disorders. It has died and been reborn as a fetid catalog of universal disability, posing as a humane celebration of scientific achievement and caring.

Its culture is a series of slogans fishing for more victims, always more victims, until night falls and there are no more stars.

Unless people wake up, 30 years from now they or their children will be jockeying to assert, with pride, how many mental disorders they have and how serious they are. And doctors will be tapping directly into the neural circuits of every fourth or fifth person, to make them better: i.e., more passive, more accepting.

From the dawn of time, crazy men, presenting themselves as guardians of human life, have tried to persuade us to reduce our ideas and creations down to manageable size; to slip them into well-organized structures that demean the many and elevate the few. They preach their simplistic cause and effect, their symmetry, their prison-grid of perception.

The whole effort is the promotion of a delusion.

It uses people’s pain, suffering, confusion, and doubt to lead them into a system that promises relief but brings more suffering. It very much resembles the strategies of political leaders.

Elites fear life-force wherever it may spring up. They use whatever they can to squash it. They define reality and insist that we march into it and live there like automatons.

My anxiety disorder is not bullshit though and I've tried everything under the sun to fix it. If any of you have an idea that I haven't yet tried please tell me, I'm dying here. So far I've tried, God(Christ), yoga(years of intense practice 45 minutes a day), Krishna, Xanax, Klonopin, exercise, homelessness, Vast Vast soul searching, eating right, vegetarianism, marijuana, CBD's, alcohol, new jobs, moving, rehab, sex, isolation, community, fun activities, self love, self hate, running(10 miles a day for a year), weight lifting(similar pattern as last), prison, hard drugs(IE heroin), methadone, family, cats and dogs, music, playing music, painting, writing, oh god I could do this all day and still I sit here filled with angst, wishing I could just feel the same, as I used to, years ago, but I try and try and hope and hope but each year my panic rises and escalates to a new high previously un-imagined, hoping someone knows the answer someone knows how to fix me.

People suffer in many different ways. Anxiety, depression are all real. What is bogus is this system of "psychiatry" which doesn't seem to be able to address these problems.

My sincere sympathies are with you Zak. My prayers are with you.
Hope you'll get better. Must be awful.

Zak Bush said...

Janet this is very, very true. Has anyone tried Ibogaine?

@Zak - I, too, have suffered from anxiety and panic attacks since I was a young child. Like you, I've tried many things from exercise to meditation to prayer to natural herbs to self medicating and everything else in between. After years of on/off struggles, I have found that this is what works for me:

Getting plenty of sleep (7-8 hours per night), drinking plenty of water, getting rid of ALL caffeine products (Coffee, Soda, No Doz, etc), eating plenty of UNPROCESSED food, getting rid of junk foods, eating NATURAL foods and watching my protein intake (ensuring I get plenty), exercising every day but NOT overdoing it (you can tax your body and send it spiraling into anxiety) - walking is great, especially when you are outside and in nature, I've given up alcohol (wasn't a big drinker, however, it was easy to imbibe especially if one is feeling depressed or panicky), keeping the stress levels under control, letting go of situations that do not serve me, confronting the past and letting it go - no longer hold on to anything in the past, coming to a place of peace with those things that I cannot change and asking for forgiveness and giving forgiveness where appropriate.

I made the decision to change my life and accept that I have anxiety and decided to listen to my body and mind when I had one. I learned what triggers them in me and began to change the things that I could change. I learned that my body and mind are a bit more sensitive than most, and I pick up on others around me. This has made me aware that sometimes what I feel isn't my own energy. This will sound crazy to some, but some of us are empathic, we feel other's energy, especially if they are physically sick or emotionally troubled. This may be something for you to consider as well.

Zak, there are many other things I can offer if you are interested. Just let me know if I can help or be of assistance. Believe me, you are not alone as many of us are walking the same path. Godspeed and God Bless.

Hey Zak, try colloidal gold. It has helped me with my anxiety. Research its effects online. It dates back to the Egyptians and helps to calm the nerves, increase IQ and hand-eye coordination, as well as help with weight management. The gold I drink is called Medigold and it can be bought on Amazon for about $36 for a month supply. It's incredible, trust me. Read the reviews

Zak: Anxiety etc. are symptomatic of a condition of stress, often caused by faulty diet (esp. with our modern over-processed foodstuffs). Treatment: protein/non-restricted calories, linoleic acid, several minerals (esp. magnesium, found in good amounts in green leafy veggies & nuts/seeds), vitamins A, C, E, and esp. the B Complex - the whole Complex. (Get a high-stress 'B' dosage supplement, and go to real, non-GMO, whole-wheat bread.) Cut out any alcohol; don't get your calories from that source.

Find a good naturopath, who has been grounded in the research likes of Adelle Davis. (Her 'Let's Get Well' is my bible; also her 'Let's Eat Right to Keep Fit' is good, if a bit dated by now, for up-to-date research.) The high-speed roller milling process of our wheat (stripping the wheat germ and the balanced B complex) and white sugar are the big culprits in particular in our modern state of dis-ease. But there ARE answers to the manifold conditions that have resulted from theses short-sighted activities. DON'T GIVE UP. You don't HAVE to suffer. Keep checking info out. Best wishes.

Magnesium. This is the deal. Just about everyone is deficient. It interacts with the NMDA neurons, and resolves depression immediately, and brain issues generally. Check out George Eby's w/s.

Extract from the George Eby w/s; note the references to anxiety...

"... "I know you get a ton of mail so I will keep this brief (love the site, btw). My intention is not to challenge your findings but to find the truth for myself. I have tried three different types of magnesium for anxiety (malate, citrate, and oxide) and, believe it or not, only oxide helps. Before you dismiss this email, let me provide you with some background info. When I take malate or citrate (bound to magnesium, of course) in daily doses larger than 600 mg (divided into 4 separate doses), I get terrible diarrhea and cramps and no relief for my anxiety. However, I can consume 2500 mg (or more) magnesium oxide without any repercussions and it further cures my anxiety completely. I have found a few reputable links that report that on RARE occasions, some individuals actually absorb magnesium oxide better than other chelated forms (the links are below). The vast majority of the research I have done reaches the same conclusion that you do - magnesium oxide is garbage. Please give me your feedback on this - I can't explain why oxide works best for me, it just does."....

Zak....I did not see PSYCHOLOGIST anywhere in your list of 'fixers'. I would think you have been to one, but mention as there is no mention in your list. A psychologist, as opposed to a wacky psyCHIatrist, gets to the root of the issue causing you distress. Sounds like a chemical imbalance perhaps as well.

ALSO....the BEST BOOK EVER written on psychiatric drugs is called "ANATOMY OF AN EPIDEMIC". It is a MUST read if you want to get to the root of what a charlatan inspired pseudo pile of steaming bullshit the whole field will blow your mind! You will NEVER take another psych pill if you read this book.

Watch Aldous Huxley's book "Brave New World" portrayed in film, free on YouTube.
The 70's rendition of this seminal book will give you some hysterical laughs, but also
frighten you with the prophetic foresight of Aldous Huxley.

I'll never forget an otherwise, you would have to assume, intelligent attorney (they learn to adopt an attitude) who assured me (in almost the same terms I was hearing at the time in the media) that he was taking prescription anti-depressants because he had a "chemical imbalance in [his] brain."

I had been prescribed drugs rather than therapy and knew what they were... measured speed. Always with a down side.

He was wrong, but convinced by a doctor. Who is he going to believe? This is the trouble we are in. We can't get the truth out over the advertising dollar and money behind pharmaceuticals.
