I recently followed a post about psychology on gather.com and while the main article was intelligent and well written I'm afraid that as with almost everything written by psychologists that I have read, it was really an exercise is stating the obvious. Fair play to the writer, Gibbs Williams however, he did at least challenge some of the orthodoxies preached by The American National Socialist Workers Party (family division.)
In one of my comments I linked to a story I reported on some months ago, about the latest edition of the American Psychiatric Association (APA)'s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) will shortly be released, in this document it seems any type of individualistic behaviour is classed as mental illness. For years government and medical propaganda has been urging us to eat more healthily, now healthy eating is a mental illness, Orthorexia. Yeah, you did read that right, take care to eat healthily and you are insane and in need of medical intervention. eat junk food and you need therapy because you mental disorder is prompting your self - neglect.

So if you think you are a mentally well balanced person, chances are you're completely Dagenham. Now some might think I am showing come sort of cognitive dissonance or something there, what had a working class east London suburb to do with this post.
I'll help you out. There's a scale of slang terms for insanity, over here it starts at a bit divvy and progresses through crackers, nuts, loop the loop, dolally, and bonkers until you get to utterly Barking. So where does Dagenham fit in? Well if yo look at the schematic map of the London Underground system, on the District Line (green) heading east from central London you will notice that Dagenham is two stops further on than Barking. If you know what I mean.
I'm not the only one who thinks the psychoanalysis business has gone too far in its pursuit of your money (they'll never get a penny of mine). John Rapoport hass an interesting article up on his blog about how the definitions of mental illness are expanding.
Mental illness is the new normal
by Jon Rappoport
February 14, 2014
The strategy is as old as the hills.
Show people an extreme example of something, and thereby convince them to accept a compromise.
In this case, parade before the public—along with assured pronouncements from "mental health experts”—images of James Holmes, Aaron Alexis, Adam Lanza, etc.—and say:
"Look, these are people who committed unspeakable crimes because they were suffering from mental disorders, and we must do something about it…in fact, at least half of all Americans have some sort of mental disorder…”
It's a nudge, a coax, a veiled threat, an invocation of fear.
"Gee, maybe I have a mental disorder and I don't even know it.
It softens up the population ...

Reasons Why This Pagan Will Not Vote Labour, Conservative Or Liberal Democrat.
As we prepare to vote in a General Election that we are told will change British Politucs forever, Ian looks at a choice of three main parties that basically offer the same set of globalist, multiculturalist policies and consideres which way a pagan should vote.
Labour's Cockfish Reveals How Mainfesto Will Piss You Off.
All three main parties in the UK General Election are campaigning from a Politically Correct Consensus (i.e. Control Freak) platform. But whenm it comes to politically correct control freakery, Labour will always outdo the others. The main early thut of their campaign is a promise to criminalise sugary snacks and breakfast cereals, fatty foods and some fizzy drinks. And they're serious, they have handed the job of selling this idiocy to The Cockfish of British politics.
Ve Haff Vay Of Making You Konform. The Tide Is Turning against the Autoritarian Left
The left's self confidence has had a hint of desperation about it for a long time. From their constant whines about the sexism, racism and homophobia of the working class who happen to be the party's core constituency to the substitution of smearing UKIP for policies in the european Election this is a party of arrested adolescents throwing a hissy fit because people are laughing at them.
Nonconformity and Freethinking Now Considered Mental Illnesses
We've been here before of course, shrinks and head quacks are now trying to say everything you do can be interpreted as a sign of mental illness. Its starange but the sickets, most dysfunctional people I've met have been psychatrists and psychologists - perhaps they want to make the rest of us as crazy as they are
Creativity And Non Conformity Are Now Signs Of Mental Illness?
The aim of Big Pharma is to make us all patients for life. This is a line often quoted by The Daily Stirrer as we pursue our self appointed task of chasing government, corporate, political and academic corruption. One of the latest themes we detect is the vast and rapid expansion of the scope od symptoms that can indicate mental illness. It seems everything you do now is a sign of mental illness
Manufacturing Madness: The Pseudoscience of Modern Psychiatry
Mental Illness. If we have not reached it already, we are close to the point at which any minor eccentricity or expression of individuality can be diagnosed as a mental health problem for which some kind of therapy (usually involving the toxic products peddled by Big pharma) is necessary. But is this any thing more that a sleazy scam to make us all patients for life?
Civilisation Isn't Over 'Til The Bearded Lady Sings
Freak shows went out of fashion in the 1950s and rightly so in my not so humble opinion. Two headed dogs, a man with goat hooves, people who swallowed live animals (geeks) and bearded ladies were not anybody's idea of sophisticated entertainment. That being the case, why do Europe's media luvvies who think they are oh so sophisticated persist with the annual freak show that is the Eurovision song Contest?
Everything They Said Is Bad For You Is Good For You.Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the pleasuredome Nanny State's Politically Correct Thought Police are now using CAll Me Dave's Dave's nudger try to nudge us towards being better citizens, eating more shite and refusing things we like, drinking less booze, smoking less ciggies, avoiding dangerous sports like bowls and tiddleywinks, driving less miles in a less cavalier fashion and being less idle (unless of course being idle is the alternative to driving, boozing, eating or enjoying yourself by doing things the Thought Police do not like.
American Concerns About British MuslimsUS concerns that the UK was having difficulty containing the threat posed by home-grown extremism have been revealed in new Wikileaks cables. One cable said the British government made "little progress" in engaging with the UK's Muslim community after the 7 July 2005 terror attacks in London.The communication was delivered to Washington from the American embassy in London in August 2006.
Liberal DilemmaThe progresive left, the politically correct Thought Police, are big on supporting all minorities in their pursuit of their rights and in preaching tolerance and diversity to society at large. But what happens when two of those precipous minorities, say for example Muslims and feminists come into conflict on some issue.
Breaking News - Nanny State On Suicide WatchReports are just coming in of a dramatic incident at the Palace of Westminster. It seems a mythical woman has been prevented by fire brigade and police officers from committing suicide by impaling herself on John Redwood's pointed ears.The woman, whose real name is not know but who has previously been referred to by the media as Nanny State became distraught as David Cameron announced a new government policy aimed at dismantling the ..
Equalities Bill Discriminates Against Everybody EquallyThe Equalities Bill, passed by the previous Labour government before they were ejected from power becomes law today. This farrago is typical of the imbecilic mindset of the self righteous hypocrites who style themselves the progressive left. Presented as a law in support of equality in the workplace , in this era of pandemic joblessness and perpetual financial crisis it is nothing but an attack on the businesses that provide the real, wealth producing, revenue generating jobs in the private sector.
Cardiff To Pioneer Drunk Friendly StreetsThe news that Welsh capital city Cardiff is to expreriment with making its streets drunk friendly gave us plenty to speculate about.
Drunk Friendly Streets - Why Not Driver Friendly RoadsNews that the Welsh capital city, Cardiff is to create drunk friendly streets to prevent rat arsed revellers hurting themselves as they stagger from pub to bus station full of drink and alcohol fuelled bonhomie prompted petrolhead fatsally to ask 'Why not driver friendly roads?
Crackdown On Binge DrinkingThey stopped us smoking, now they want to stop us drinking. We have been predicting for years that is the way things would go as the inceasingly obsessive control freakery of the Politically Correct Thought Police leads them to interfere with our freedom to live our lives as we wish and chhose our own method of self destruction. When alcohol has been demonised as smoking now has will they start on sex or food?
