(October 14, 2014) The liars who lie about psychiatry
I’m posting this piece to derail the notion that “the authorities” know what causes things.
In the Ebola hysteria, millions of people blithely accept the notion that the “cases and the deaths” are caused by the Ebola virus.
“What else could it be? The authorities must be right.”
Here is an analogy that is far more shocking dangerous, and long-lived than Ebola.
If psychiatrists are experts on the human mind, mice can pilot oil tankers across the ocean.
An open secret has been slowly bleeding out into public consciousness for the past ten years.
THERE ARE NO DEFINITIVE LABORATORY TESTS FOR ANY SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDER.
And along with that:
ALL SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDERS ARE CONCOCTED, NAMED, LABELED, DESCRIBED, AND CATEGORIZED by a committee of psychiatrists, from menus of human behaviors.
Their findings are published in periodically updated editions of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), printed by the American Psychiatric Association.
