All mental disorders are just the relevance of thoughts to man made ideals. Every mental disorder can be traced to an event in life where it involves the idea or existence of a man made concept or idea. Without rules, regulations, concepts and/or theories of life, there would be nothing to relate your thoughts to, in turn would neutralize any reaction weather it be negative or positive to said relationship, aspect or idea. All in all, many who develop mental disorders live there life striving and/or trying to achieve and please the status quo of the societies of which they were born.

So you are saying mental disorders are the result of not being able to cope with this life, or they were unprepared for this incarnation (this cannot be true because you script your life path before entering a body). Perhaps these folks chose to experience mental illness in this go around; including the most detrimental, schizophrenia which is genetic (that takes guts).

I would think that Psychiatry is more of a Pseudoscience created by big Pharma .When I was growing up dad would say "whats wrong with that kid " to my mom . Today they call it ADHD and probably have a pill to deal with it . Heck I think I read somewhere that teacher can actually compel parents to put the kids on medication .The teachers retirement portfolio just happens to have investments into Pharma so it becomes a win win for them come retirement . a reply to: UnderGetty

I tend to think "big pharma" is certainly involved but they're basically useful idiots. In the big picture, the motive is more than just profit and the people who really control everything are interested in much more than just selling things and making money.

I think it all comes down to control. Every time. Money is a big motivating factor in many things but money is more of a means to an end. In the end, what everyone really wants is power and control. If you control everything, you can have all the money you want. Assuming it's money you want.

Too often, people make the mistake that there couldn't possibly be any other motive other than money. I disagree. I think some people value their ideology and their ideological goals more than money. They just know they need money in order to get there.

"Mental health" is the perfect mechanism for authoritarianism. They can go almost anywhere they want with it. They can neutralize their critics by calling them crazy. They can render their political opponents illegitimate by calling them nuts. They can make people fear their critics by making them out to be dangerous. And finally, they will eventually be able to put people in asylums for political unorthodoxy. They won't call it that (of course).

In therapists and associated mental health workers, they will have the perfect thought police. If you believe there's something wrong in your mind, you go and talk to these folks and spill your guts. At what point have you been told that you need therapy? Well, I'll tell you one thing that'll cause people to tell you that you need a shrink absolutely every time. "Paranoia" (that would be a condition in which you believe there's anything shady going on. Ever. Unless it is an officially acknowledged conspiracy).

Anyway, quite conveniently, I think these people will eventually probably be required to report anything unusual. Not just dangerous people. Because they'll make some kind of excuse where they can't always spot the dangerous people and they need to be on the lookout for signs of complete insanity that should not be signs of complete insanity. So they need to take every little thing as a warning sign. Incrementally, I believe they'll get there eventually. The dangerous people are probably going to get more and more normal until there were absolutely no warning signs whatsoever. They'll literally have us all watching each other and reporting absolutely anything out of the ordinary.
