According to modern psychiatry, non-conformity is now a mental illness
To those who often choose to go against the norm, be warned: The psychiatric profession just dubbed non-conformity a “disorder.”
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM, defines “oppositional defiant disorder,” or ODD, as an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior.” Basically, it just labeled anyone who deviates from what is regarded as the norm mentally ill.
Given the ambiguity of the disorder’s definition, almost any behavior perceived by someone else as strange or bothersome might be categorized as a symptom of ODD. For instance, children who often throw tantrums or pick fights with others their age could be declared to have this “illness.” This fails to take into account, however, the fact that disobedience is a common behavior among kids, and not at all a symptom of something akin to a disorder. If that were the case, Thomas Edison or Alexander Graham Bell, for example, whose unconventional behaviors and ways of thinking might have raised some brows in their day, might be declared to have ODD.
Another danger to using the term disorder so loosely is the fact that it could curtail freedom of speech and political dissent. In fact, according to Natural News, “the federal government has already tried to declare those who oppose its tyrannical policies, or who simply question them, as having ‘political paranoia,’ a type of mental illness.”
Psychiatry or tyranny?
In the former USSR, authorities used the medical system to control and regulate citizens’ thoughts. It implemented mental health programs that categorized dissenters as impaired and in need of mind-altering drugs that often had devastating side effects.
“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,” explains a 2002 analysis and commentary on the abuse of psychiatry in both the Soviet Union and China that was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law.
“Doctors who allow themselves to be used in this way… betray the trust of society and breach their most basic ethical obligations as professionals.”

They still teach Freud at Universities. Freud built his theories on his studies of his own people…. Jews.
He then applied these theories to other races….. gotta be kidding!
However he bred a massive industry of pharmaceutical promoted experts that knew absolutely nothing about the human biology let alone the brain.
Psychiatry is artificial drugs as it was the drug cartels that spawned their industry of profit accumulated by bullshit. Read some of the Psycho manuals and you will see what I mean…… drugs solve all the problems of problems that do not exist?….. ADHD is one of them.
The human body is greater than it’s parts….. they understand alright…. it’s genocide or human pruning….. take your pick!
Attention Jon Rappoport:
You may find the views of this psychologist interesting.
I just listened to this program.
ABC RN All In The Mind – Does mental ‘illness’ exist?
Mental health issues are hugely significant worldwide, but are we approaching them in the most effective & human way? A leading professor of psychology says that “everybody’s crazy but nobody’s ill”- meaning that seeing mental distress as an illness is the wrong approach. We need a model of care which supports people who are distressed because of their social & life circumstances.

If we are creatures of our environment and our reality is offered by our conscious mind then that may explain some?
We mostly live in unnatural stack and pack environments and our reality is not from our minds but from someone else\’s!
