Mental illness is the new normal

The strategy is as old as the hills.

Show people an extreme example of something, and thereby convince them to accept a compromise.

In this case, parade before the public—along with assured pronouncements from “mental health experts”—images of James Holmes, Aaron Alexis, Adam Lanza, etc.—and say:

“Look, these are people who committed unspeakable crimes because they were suffering from mental disorders, and we must do something about it…in fact, at least half of all Americans have some sort of mental disorder…”

It’s a nudge, a coax, a veiled threat, an invocation of fear.

“Gee, maybe I have a mental disorder and I don’t even know it.”

It softens up the population.

“If you have a mental disorder, you should get diagnosed and treated. Otherwise, later on, you could go off the rails and commit a horrible act. It’s inconsiderate and dastardly to stay outside the psychiatric system.”

With 300 official labels of such disorders, a shrink (dealer) will be more than happy to stick a label on you, and prescribe you a toxic drug to start you out.

“Let’s try Ritalin… and oh, you’re feeling sad now because the drug made you crash?…no, that’s clinical depression…here, take Zoloft…oh, and now you’re going up and down?…that’s bipolar…here, do a little Valproate…”

You’re on your way.

But at least you’re not a James Holmes. Whew. Avoided that one.

And if DARPA or the National Institutes of Health says they’re breaking ground on a new brain-mapping project (only 750 trillion neurons to catalog and explain), you’re on their side.

“Well, sure, nothing harmful about more research, go to it, boys, and bring home the bacon.”

Even the idea of using this data trove to control the mind doesn’t sound bad.

“Of course we need to control it. Look what happened at Sandy Hook when we didn’t.”

The extreme advertisement at work.

Never mind that there is no laboratory test for any of the 300 official mental disorders.

Just a minor glitch.

Never mind that all the prescribed psychiatric drugs are toxic and some actually cause violent behavior (suicide, homicide).

You’re going to see more statements about “left untreated” coming down the pipeline. As in: “We can now manage mental illness quite well. But early-stage onset, if left untreated, accumulates and grows into something far more dangerous. So we need people to recognize signs and symptoms in themselves and others (snitch culture based on nothing).”

And in case you hadn’t noticed, early onset can mean babies. That’s right. Diagnosis in younger and younger children is the trend.

You thought your two-year old was staring out the window because he was, well, staring out the window?

Not necessarily. He might be clinically depressed, in which case he’s a candidate for drugs that can make scrambled eggs out of his neurotransmitters. But it’s all in the service of science, and ensuring he doesn’t grow up to be a mass murderer.

“Yes, we have little Jimmy on Paxil. We as parents feel it’s the responsible thing to do. He’s…different these days, but our psychiatrist says he’s making progress.”

You bet little Jimmy is different, and you’re going to find out what that means later on.

But don’t worry, be happy. The shrink will assure you the bizarre drug-induced behavior is actually the spontaneous emergence of another mental disorder.

And the State will stand firmly behind that shrink. Welcome to the medical industrial complex.

A lot of emotions are heredity and it all depends on how bad the parent is and I guess if 2 with problems marry it must multiply .

There is evidence that fetal brain structural abnormalities are triggered by, for example, maternal infection with flu virus during the second trimester. These abnormalities are diagnostic for the later onset of schizophrenia. However, vaccinating expectant mothers with inactivated or weakened flu virus actually produces the very abnormalities in fetal development which the procedure is alleged to prevent.
The reasons for this are clearly laid out in this video by Dr Russell Blaylock.

~even worse (if possible) . . . Sandy Hook, didn't happen.

I disagree with the title and most of the contents of this article.

And the State will stand firmly behind that shrink. Welcome to the medical industrial complex. This is very very true.

The reason I disagree is insanity is already affecting on the order of 99% of the planets population. Belief/believing is functionally the same as being delusional. It does not matter if you are a theists, atheist or a believer in evolution/big bang theory or a devotee of a political/economic system.

The bottom line is induced insanity makes people easier to control and exploit which is why organized religion and standardized compulsory schooling- brainwashing/programming - are embraced by parasites everywhere on the planet.

I don't know about the other two, but there is significant evidence that Aaron Alexis was, in fact, a 'Targeted Individual.'

There are many thousands of Targeted Individuals across America, and they are constantly exposed to unbelievable levels of torment and harassment under a government program.

This harassment goes by the colloquial name of 'Gangstalking.' In reality, it's a resurgence of the FBI's COINTELPRO. Most of the time, it's used against perceived 'dissidents' or anyone posing a threat to the current political order. In some cases, targets are chosen as unwilling test subjects. Alexis appears to be the latter - a guinea pig purposely driven to a point where he would snap, and act out in a way harmful to himself and innocent bystanders.

I'm not excusing the fact that he killed a number of innocent people, but the government perpetrators knew this could happen. Considering the constant surveillance TIs are under, the scum probably LET it happen! It's all 'collateral damage' to the twisted sadists in our government. Perhaps before worrying about the mental health of the populace, they should look in the mirror and realize their own mental frailty. It even has a name: 'Sociopathy!'

"Mental Illness" is a conspiracy to silence and control; to enforce conformity.

Mental illness has put patients in prisons for fiscal restrictions. I wonder how many healthcare professionals consider their coworkers to be suffering from mental illnesses? Prisons or hospitals, draconian controls or compassionate caregiving, now its telling the youth that they will be paying for the elderly or asking them to check out on their own. If 95% of the world's wealth is in the hands of 5% of the population, how long will control and disrespect leave anything behind when the demand comes for a fair share? When you have nothing to loose, your freedoms become less valuable for controlling purposes.
