Fuck The Head-Candling Shrinks

The lies & the drugs didn't help this reporter one fucking bit in this world of shit & pain; now we know why:
Charles Schulz is dead, so fuck copyright too!
America's mental health practitioners are little different from those of the Soviet Union, apparently interested only in squashing dissent & preserving the status quo.

Just one of ten:
9. Medicating Noncompliance and Marginalizing Anti-Authoritarians
Mental health professionals pathologize noncompliance. Rebellious children and teenagers, for example, are routinely diagnosed with oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), the symptoms include “often actively defies or refuses to comply with adult requests or rules” and “often argues with adults.” ODD is one of several “disruptive behavior disorders,” and a 2012 study reported that disruptive behavior disorders were the most common diagnoses in children medicated with antipsychotic drugs, accounting for 63% of those medicated.

Many people diagnosed with anxiety, depression, substance abuse disorders, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder are essentially anti-authoritarians who fear that their contempt for illegitimate authorities will make it difficult for them to survive. A potentially large army of anti-authoritarian activists are being kept off democracy battlefields by mental health professionals who prevent the development of political consciousness by pathologizing—and thus depoliticizing—normal defiant reactions.
For our second (& mercifully final) "j'accuse", we present "NYC Bespoke Psychiatry". Compare & contrast w/ Lucy above.
Now can we start killing the aristocrats & their enablers? And if not now, when?

Don't believe the hype. When I was in the Acorn Academy no one was anywhere near that interesting; I was in w/ the trouble-makers, too.

I was so disruptive in the classroom as a child that I would have been diagnosed with one of those disruptive disorders today, when in reality it was my horrible parents who drove me crazy. Luckily they didn't diagnose disruptive behaviors when I was a kid; teachers just punished me routinely for my "bad" behavior.
