The American Psychiatric Association (APA) recently released their 5th edition, 'Diagnostic and Statistical Manual" (DSM 5). Any sane mental health provider would reject its misguided attempt to make normal healthy behaviors into pathology.
The combination of a declining educational system, a fatally flawed mental health manual, and a political environment ripe with dissension does not bode well for Americans who have a legitimate gripe with their government.
Political dissent is a symptom of good mental health. It's a demand for truth, evidence, and appropriate action. Peaceful Dissent is not a threat, yet it is often met with violence. Instead of addressing the psychotic disorders of the authoritarian figures the DSM5 takes aim at those exercising their constitutional rights.
The government seeks to make dissent criminal and the DSM5 seeks to make it pathological. This two pronged approach, aimed at silencing dissent, only ups the ante for dissenters. The greater the personal risk, the greater the need to restore and protect our rights and freedoms.
It seems like politicians only like our political rights in terms of moving speeches and vote getting tactics. Not in practical application. Foolishly they vote to suspend our rights, based on certain criteria's, that have existed since the beginning of our constitutional republic. The government has always created enemies, foreign and domestic, yet gun rights was sacred. Am I paranoid to object to this.
Our forefathers built a new nation, by killing off an existing one, to establish this constitution. One hundred million dead American Indians, is what the Constitution cost us. Would we really let ANYONE come and destroy its gifts when the cost was so high?
The DSM5 is an attack on normal human behavior. It takes natural behavior like grief over the death of a loved one, or childhood temper tantrums, or senior forgetfulness, or dissent and turn these behaviors into a diagnosis of mental illness. The DSM5 targets internet users and conspiracy theorists which bolsters Obama's and Biden's grounds for gun confiscation or rejection of gun licenses. The administration sees all mental illness as equal, so your phobia can prevent you from owning a weapon.
According to the Daily News:
The new manual "will drastically expand psychiatric diagnosis, mislabel millions of people as mentally ill, and cause unnecessary treatment with medication," says the website for the Committee to Boycott the DSM-5, organized by New York social worker Jack Carney.The DSM4 had equally poor judgment within it. Its new diagnosis of Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), which was mocked among professionals, took hold regardless. In DSM5 they expanded the diagnosis to include adults who exemplify "paranoid ideation" about the government and who frequently express these delusional ideations on the internet.
What is even more frightening, is the new ODD diagnosis will not just seize guns. It will commandeer a person's mind through incarceration, for their own good of course, and forced drugging which will chemically castrate the brains of all arrested political dissidents.
In the opinion of the Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law.
"Psychiatric incarceration of mentally healthy people is uniformly understood to be a particularly pernicious form of repression, because it uses the powerful modalities of medicine as tools of punishment, and it compounds a deep affront to human rights with deception and fraud..."Obamacare doctors are required to ask about your gun ownership status. It is yet one more professional weighing in your right to own a weapon. Let's be honest, none of us spend enough time with our doctor to even get a thorough exam let alone a mental evaluation. His own political beliefs on gun ownership will shade his viewpoint regardless, just like the issue of abortion.
A real patriot would not submit to this power grab, not the doctors, the therapists, or the citizenry. Too much power is granted to a group of people who have a huge history of violating patient/doctor relationships.
Check out the Psychiatric Crime Database.The website states:
Many psychiatrists have an intimate knowledge of criminality-one which has nothing to do with the professions involvement in the expert witness field.
- Between $20 billion and $40 billion is defrauded by the American psychiatric industry in any given year.
- At least 10% of psychiatrists admit to sexually abusing their patients: In America, that's at least 4,500 rapes and, internationally, more than 15,000 rapes.
- Psychiatrists, psychologists and psychotherapists have the dubious distinction of having laws specifically designed to curtail their tendency to commit sex crimes against those in their charge.
- A 1992 study of Medicaid and Medicare insurance fraud in the U.S. showed psychiatry to have the worst track record of all medical disciplines.
