Psychiatric Diagnosis, Surveillance State Linked

By Jon Rappoport

Pay close attention to this one. It’s the future coming at you like a strong wind.

First, a bit of background. As my readers know, I’ve assembled conclusive proof that psychiatric diagnosis of mental disorders is a fraud. It’s pseudoscience. There are no defining lab tests. No definitive blood, saliva, hair, brain, genetic tests.

Instead, committees of psychiatrists meet and discuss arbitrary clusters of behaviors, group them and label them with “mental-disorder” names.

But diehards insist that one of the earliest and oldest disorders, schizophrenia, is the exception. That one is solid. That one isn’t pseudoscience. That one is the “gold standard.”


As reports, “…Diagnosing schizophrenia relies on subjective methods…There is no single test for schizophrenia, so diagnosis typically involves observing symptoms and ruling out other potential causes for them…”

Want more? Fiercebiotch: “And while scientists have observed differences in brain scans of healthy people and those with schizophrenia…these are not currently used to diagnose the neurological disorder, according to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).” Not used because the brain scans aren’t precise or definitive.

Same old, same old. Committees of psychiatrists “observe symptoms” (behaviors) and invent rules for diagnosis of schizophrenia.

As usual, the public is the last to know.

Now, there is a new project afoot that aims to change the non-objective diagnosis, using MRI images of the brain. IBM and the University of Alberta are working on it:

Fiercebiotech: “The team used machine learning to create a model that identifies schizophrenia based on connections in the brain, IBM said. The fMRI data was taken from different sites, using different machines, but the algorithm could differentiate between the patients with schizophrenia and without 74% of the time.”

No one is popping champagne corks. This was a small pilot study using 95 volunteers. Typically, these projects die out when larger studies are done, because the results aren’t specific enough.

That’s why NO brain tests, for ANY so-called mental disorder, are labeled definitive in the psychiatric bible, the DSM, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual.

However, the computer boys and medical pros keep trying—and here is where the Surveillance State enters the scene in an ugly way.

Fiercebiotech: “Mindstrong Health, cofounded by former NIMH [National Institute of Mental Health, a federal agency] chief Tom Insel, is working on technology that analyzes smartphone data to determine a person’s mental state. The company’s tech collects information on which words are used, or a person’s location when using certain apps, for example, and turns them into objective measures of brain function. The company recently raised $14 million…”

“Meanwhile, Boston-based Akili Interactive and Pfizer reported data last year showing that a video game-based diagnostic test could distinguish between people with and without brain amyloidosis, a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease. And PureTech’s Sonde Health is working on the analysis of ‘vocal biomarkers,’ or changes in nonlinguistic characteristics of a person’s voice, to indicate changes in health.”

To make a long story short: spy on everybody through their cell phones and computers, in order to diagnose them with ANY mental disorder.

The Surveillance State gets a new justification, and the psychiatric establishment gets to play Big Brother, “to protect us all” from mentally ill persons.

This research was kicked into a higher gear by Obama’s Brain Mapping Project, which he announced in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting. The Project is necessary, he claimed, to help prevent such future tragedies.

No, the Project is necessary to expand surveillance of the population, for the sake of control.

Psychiatric diagnosis, and the toxic drugging that follows, IS a form of control.

“Well, we have a red-flagged subject in Boston who’s been using key words in his cell phone calls, and the non-linguistic pauses and voice inflections indicate he’s demonstrating a schizoid pattern. According to outlined procedures, we need to step up surveillance on him, do a deep check on his financials, quietly interview a few of his friends and co-workers, determine his voting record, find out what groups he belongs to. He’s a college professor. He teaches American history. Do we have anything on how he interprets the Founding Fathers, the Constitution…oh look, he seems to be making statements about the need to return to limited central government…we’ve got a live one, guys. Get busy…”

Diagnose the prof with schizoid tendencies and put him on an anti-psychotic drug, which will sink him into a brain haze and slow down his motor reflexes, at minimum.

Psychiatry and the Surveillance State:

  1. …The the early 20th century crypto J3W Bolsheviks…especially Stalin…used the same quasi psychiatric ruse to apprehend, ‘escort’ & then lock away individuals under false & scurrilous pretenses > ‘Anyone’ < with an IQ over that of room temperature with discerningly perspicacious 'critical thinking' skills…those who could easily see through the orchestrated artifice of the Grand Illusion Matrix construct of TPTB's – BIG LIE- propaganda circus; that spins the mass distraction & misdirecting daily memes out onto the public air-waves via their dark-web of Think Tank / NGO / Psy-Op / Grand Illusion / Theater of the Absurd propaganda/promulgations… with an iron grip on the nation's media outlets….just like today.

      There is a filter being applied. An event taking place.
      Be a good citizen and accept our deranged explanation of what is right and be rewarded.
      Challenge our authority and control with logic and reason and be demonized, marginalized. Made an example of wrong behavior.
      Too many of weak mind ready to go along to get along and avoid the jackboot to save themselves.
      In the end, the result is the same. Capitulate or suffer. They will find new lows for these to grovel under or be punished.
      Conclusion. Die on your feet or live on your knees.
      I for one will never kneel, for death is inevitable. It matters not how you die but how you LIVE.

    • Brandon Raub was the test case, imho. It wasn’t accepted by the public – but the practice may still live on. Nor was Napolitano’s gambit for Walmart “See something say something” looping videos playing on screens near the check out stands.

      The social engineering protocols now brought to use with electronic social credit score “carrots” in Canada. Oregon legislature trying and failing to pass a law allowing euthanasia of people with dementia or “mental illness” – against their will if need be as it was drafted. Wow. Quite an inflection point, Eddy. I’m always grateful you see it as clearly as I do and we’re in good company with Common Sense, zyklzy, and somitcw.

  2. No Earthly government has the authority to block medication that any adult wants.
    Example: marijuana
    No Earthly government has the authority to force dope on anyone.
    Example: Fluoride, non-therapeutic vaccines, and psycho dope.

  3. I firmly believe after my years working as a psychiatric nurse that most of what constitutes “mental illness” develops in the context of dysfunctional families. The saying “the apple never drops far from the tree” applies to families in which one or both parents have personality disorders particularly of the cluster B variety (narcissistic/ sociopathic/ borderline and histrionic). Kids growing up in these environments stand little chance of developing normal, healthy coping mechanisms due to the ongoing stress they are subjected to throughout their childhoods. Some develop their own personality disorders from an early age while some will develop pathological symptoms leading to a diagnosis of mental illness and induced drugging for most if not all of their lives. Whilst the challenges faced by individuals afflicted by these situations may be profound and debilitating so to are the effects of most if not all psychiatric meds. My advice would be to avoid psychiatrists at all costs. Go find a quiet tropical island and lay on a beach for 6 months. When you come back you’ll see that it’s society that is mad not you.

  4. Beyond Orwell.

  5. The Soviet Union pioneered this over 50 years ago.

  6. Please help the victims of the National Institute of Justice’s “intelligent surveillance” research. The NIJ is using our taxpayer dollars to violate our constitutional rights, recklessly endanger our lives, and torture us 24/7. Senator Kaine told me that this program funds Newport News Police Department and Virginia state police. Both are required to have a signed informed consent form for each human subject. The NIJ follows the common rule. Citizens need to request the name and contact number for the IRB as well as the grant administrator. We need to ask our senators to defund the NIJ for failure to follow the “common rule” and for violations of our constitutional rights as well as the torture and murder of thousands of innocent citizens. The perps are state and local police. The funding is the NIJ. In addition, cops steal the identity of the victim and use Medicaid to supplement their nonconsensual human subject research. This is a felony. They must allow us to opt out. The NIJ are required by law to pay for our attorney fees, medical expenses, and any change in financial position as well as punitive damages! I now have cancer throughout my body as a direct result of this technology. The NIJ, Newport News Police and Virginia state police are to blame for my cancer and stealing a decade of my life! Are there any attorneys with integrity in the U. S.?
