I REALLY haven't the temper if I'm shot at or attacked I kill it fast.
DAMN the laws or values all I'm worried about is BULLET travel,my brother is a detective.HE agrees.
Progressive values require authoritative subservience to an authority and MOSTLY is is based on collectivist thinking that come from socialist edicts created by the hippies and beatniks,who infiltrated academia FOR that specific intent.
It precludes the need for essentially victim hood in the face of confrontation.
I was RAISED conservative and THEY blew it with Bush
NOW I am a retired person waiting for meds to off me.


Progressives understand evolution, change, human rights, cultural relativism, embracing other cultures and walks of lifes, globalization. Many of your right wing type are too intolerant, war mongering, and espouse Christian-Judeo values tied into the war machine. Many of them are extremist, isolationist, and not open minded to different experiences/ideas.

Studying the DSM and reading the Myth of Mental Illness by former psychiatrist Thomas Szasz that has practiced in the field for years.


Any practical experience with a range of patients?

Here's the excerpt again:


As the forces of globalization accelerate, deepen, and become ever more complex, the older faith-based and rational forms of consciousness are likely to become stressed, and even dangerous, as they attempt to navigate a world increasingly beyond their reach and control.

Indeed, the emergence of this empathetic consciousness has implications for the future that will likely be as profound and far-reaching as when Enlightenment philosophers upended faith-based consciousness with the canon of reason. - Empathic Civilization


Violence isn't cool.

And nobody has any right to talk down on progressives when it has been progressives that has allowed technological evolution and progress in science. If it wasn't for progressives we would still be stuck in the stone ages.

Progressives are the ones creating robotics, machine processes, computers etc.

Yeah, and it's true many of them can have wild behavior but so what? Everyone goes through a wild child phase. Everyone is eccentric to a certain extent.

Many of the patients aren't dangerous however. Most of them are incredibly average in fact.

Of course it isn't, we're STUCK with it,I just took up a jaded skill in order to test myself...from about 5.
AND PLEASE do not tell me Violence doesn't solve things I HAVE solved a great deal with unreasonable people and THEIR violence.
If there WAS no threat I wouldn't fight.
BUT there are a great MANY threats and I can't count on our intellectuals to stop them,WITNESS the "Merkel Meltdown" as a cautionary glimpse of the scientific mind in leadership.

What an ignorant statement, enjoy your irrational thread.


Yes. If you don't have a personal experience of schizophrenia (family member, relative, loved one), you will have a hard time really grasping what a mental illness actually is... I have been knee deep in this stuff for 5 years now, and my understanding of why mental illness is a real problem, keeps getting deeper. And let me tell you, I was on your side of the table until just recently.

These symptoms you are listing, are of course all normal feelings that anyone can have, but are very much warped in a schizophrenic individual. I could spend all day trying to explain myself - but I think a profound understanding of this requires a lot of personal exposure to mental illness.

This all being said, I don't agree with stuffing pills down the throats of everybody (since not even injections are helping the one who is sick in my family), but there is obviously something wrong with his mind and nothing that has been done so far seems to help. We have tried so much and so many approaches...

But you go right ahead and say that mental health workers are all just working on a rigged scheme that aims to hep no one. It's not perfect, it isn't always effective, but it is the only thing we got. Id like to see your suggestions on how else we should approach this, or point to some other means that mental health problems could be dealt with.

Empathic Civilization would apply to Muslim beliefs as well. Everyone needs to let go of archaic belief systems and embrace progressive science and evolution.

Of course not. This culture is obsolete. We evolved.

No time, I saved you on MY watch so the bastards MAY not draft you ,now I'm waiting to drown in mucus from COPD.
JOY.
I made peace with death before the war by a Japanese method of conditioning the mind by assuming death and it worked...but NOW it 's ungainly an a tad scary to many.
I once was almost trained by a ninja in the VOID system,but my mind is racing with ideas so I can't really sleep well or meditate.
I'm hoping for hypnotherapy to by pass defensive mechanisms in my mind that have developed ...until that damn VA told me THERE WAS evidence of prominent extra axial space generally corresponding to the parietal region without associated abnormal signal within the brain parenchyma...which is an alien language so I have NO idea what that means I just know my right eye is astigmatic alone,math is dead and I am 100% now
AND they said I was born with it.(IF YOU KNOW PLEASE TELL ME!)
I don't KNOW of the PCB pills or sarin could do that,now it is what I am.

Nope, but how you define yourself isn't a model for the nastier pragmatism of our planet.
I am NOT a model for ANY human existence I WAS a warrior and THAT doesn't just go away,IT'S what I did.
and SUCH a thing IS my identity now.
I once heard a psychologist attempt to inform me how Pot causes psychosis by it's use alone and because SHE had the paper she was treating them as such.

I agree that much of the mental sector is wrapped in the trappings of the dollar....

But having worked in that field ages ago, there are most certainly mental illnesses

The BEHAVIORS issues you point out are merely the symptom of many very serious issues


You talk about moving forward w science and yet disregard the clear science of issues like schizophrenia, sociopathy, and other personality disorders.

You explain this away as side effects of meds, but neglect the fact that to even be put in meds in the first place they have to display the characteristics of whatever their disorder is

There's no physical evidence for mental illness. Mind you that homosexuality used to be considered a mental illness.

The doctor who invented the ADHD diagnosis also admits before his death he just made it up.
www.naturalnews.com...

As explained by The Sons of Liberty host Bradlee Dean, who also writes for The D.C. Clothesline, ADHD was merely a theory developed by Eisenberg. It was never actually proven to exist as a verifiable disease, despite the fact that Eisenberg and many others profited handsomely from its widespread diagnosis. And modern psychiatry continues to profit as well, helping also to fill the coffers of the pharmaceutical industry by getting children addicted early to dangerous psychostimulant drugs like Ritalin (methylphenidate) and Adderall (amphetamine, dextroamphetamine mixed salts).

"ADHD is fraud intended to justify starting children on a life of drug addiction," said Dr. Edward C. Hamlyn, a founding member of the Royal College of General Practitioners, back in 1998 about the phony condition. Adding to this sentiment, psychiatrists Peter Breggin and Sami Timimi, both of whom oppose pathologizing the symptoms of ADHD, say that ADHD is more of a social construct than it is an objective "disorder." - natural news

Ridiculous. Of course there is mental illness.

I don't disagree there is overdiagnosis, but that is in every medical specialty, fueled by big pharma.

You don't "invent" the illnesses I listed

For someone who believes so much in science you seem to be completely ignoring the vast majority of science behind extreme personality disorders

How is there a mental illness? It has been proven the medicine is unnecessary. Psychiatric medicine has been known to make people suicidal and even homicidal.

Why do you keep perpetuating the mental illness myth when there has been no physical evidence to prove it exists?

Doctors involved in the big pharma industry know that to have a money making scheme you first invent a drug then you invent a "disease" where the doctors can prescribe the drug.

It's just a racket.
