Do you take strong exception to governments that systematically rob, spy on, and otherwise abuse you? Do you speak up in defense of personal privacy and freedom? Then you may be in need of re-education, and perhaps some pharmaceuticals, to cure you of your “oppositional defiant disorder.”

It is now confirmed by USWGO News that the DSM-IV-TR Manual labels free thinkers, non conformers, civil disobedient advocates, those that question authority, and people considered hostile toward the government (aka Oath keepers and local militias) as mentally ill with the illness titled “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD.

It was reported on October 8 2010 from OffTheGrid News that anybody who is disobedient, defiant,  a free thinker, or even considered hostile toward authority was to be labeled by psychiatrists as ‘Mentally Ill’.

Now I have got my hands on a ebook version of the year 2000 version of the ‘Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental  Disorders DSM-IV-TR Fourth Edition (Text Revision) By the American Psychiatric Association version DSM-TV-TR (The non TR Version was said to be older and so I got the newer one which had the information that Off The Grid News warned about).

Now as I search up the keywords “oppositional defiant disorder” on adobe reader I found exactly what Off The Grid News was talking about. So it is now Confirmed basically that anyone who disobeys authority or even questions authority is now considered mentally ill and can be thrown in a prison-like mental institution under tax payers dollars.

Today’s drug market redefines the phrase “drug pushing.” The pharmaceutical companies “push” research with funding and “push” their products on medical journals and medical associations and physicians, and the physicians ultimately “push” the drugs on their patients.

Many of these psychiatric disorders are contrived for the purpose of selling drugs, but think of the implications of some of them. “Disruptive behavior disorder” means getting out of line and challenging authority. Kids are being trained, some from toddlerhood, that resistance to authority is a mental illness.

The United States has become the psychiatric drugging capital of the world for kids with children being medicated at a younger and younger age. Medicaid records in some states show infants less than a year old on drugs for mental disorders.

The use of powerful antipsychotics with privately insured children, aged 2 through 5 in the US, doubled between 1999 and 2007, according to a study of data on more than one million children with private health insurance in the January, 2010, “Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry.”

The number of children in this age group diagnosed with bipolar disorder also doubled over the last decade, Reuters reported.

Of antipsychotic-treated children in the 2007 study sample, the most common diagnoses were pervasive developmental disorder or mental retardation (28.2%), ADHD (23.7%), and disruptive behavior disorder (12.9%).

This is what happens when a stubborn refusal to go along with “the authorities” is declared a mental illness. Now they’ll probably begin drugging the girl, if they haven’t already.

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — A Port St. Lucie first-grade student was handcuffed and committed to a mental health facility because of her classroom behavior, and her parents are furious that the school took such extreme measures.

Mickey Shalansky explained Wednesday what he said happened to his 6-year-old daughter at Parkway Elementary.

“She couldn’t put her in two handcuffs because her wrists are that small, so she put them both in the same handcuff and left marks on my daughter’s arms,” Shalansky told WPBF 25 News’ Bob Kaple.

What many don’t realize is that Hitler was inspired by eugenicists in the U.S. and Britain.

MONTPELIER — If the state of Vermont had carried out a plan to sterilize his grandmother, Don Stevens said Tuesday, he “wouldn’t be here.

Many Vermonters of mixed French Canadian and American Indian heritage, like Stevens’ grandmother, as well as poor, rural whites, were placed on a state-sanctioned list of “mental defectives” and degenerates in the 1930s and placed in state institutions like the Home for the Feeble Minded in Brandon.

Some had surgery after Gov. Stanley Wilson in 1931 won enactment of a sterilization law. It was designed to reduce the number of people seen as placing demands on public services, and to purify what University of Vermont zoology professor Henry Perkins, a national leader of the so-called “eugenics” movement, called “the fine old stock of original settlers in Vermont.”

No wonder Americans don’t resist tyranny; a vast number of them are zoned out.

“Prescriptions for psychiatric drugs increased 50 percent with children in the US, and 73 percent among adults, from 1996 to 2006, according to a study in the May/June 2009 issue of the journal Health Affairs. Another study in the same issue of Health Affairs found spending for mental health care grew more than 30 percent over the same ten-year period, with almost all of the increase due to psychiatric drug costs.”

Shut up and take your Soma, kid. And if the drugs make you suicidal . . . well, suicide is good for the economy, and probably for the environment as well.

“New federally financed drug research reveals a stark disparity: children covered by Medicaid are given powerful antipsychotic medicines at a rate four times higher than children whose parents have private insurance. And the Medicaid children are more likely to receive the drugs for less severe conditions than their middle-class counterparts, the data shows.”
