Don’t you just hate it when you’re going about your daily busy schedule of work and business when all of a sudden you find out there is something massively wrong with you. God that is a pain isn’t it. Well don’t worry anymore because they have worked out that every single one of us is mentally ill and has a disease. Aren’t you happy now? Finally an answer to things instead of questions and now they have solid concrete proof that we are wrong as individuals in some way


God seriously this is the biggest load of crap I think I have had the misfortune to set my eyes on it says that as a whole we are all diseased lolol I hope that this is a joke site aswell and not a serious one otherwise I have just lost all hope in mankind.


This study conclusively demonstrates that unfounded fear of government is a recognizable mental illness, closely related to paranoid schizophrenia. Anti-Government Phobia (AGP) differs from most mental illnesses, however, in that it is highly infectious and has an acute onset. Symptoms include extreme suspiciousness, conspiracy-mongering, delusional thought patterns, staunch "us against them" mentality, withdrawal from reality, and often religious fanaticism. Having the patient committed to a qualified mental health institution is the best option for family and loved ones. For this reason, all psychiatrists and family physicians should be provided with educational materials which will help them recognize the various symptoms and warning signs accompanying onset. Since comparatively little is known about Anti-Government Phobia at the present time, a government-funded health commission should be set up to oversee, and help focus, future research.


Here's a link to the site

So does this mean I am an extreme case of Anti – Government Phobia :S

That is absurd.
How stupid do they think we are.

Not to worry, the re-educations camps are already being put in place, so you’ll get all the help you need for your ‘highly infectious metal illness’.

Let us all not be worried unless people close to us decide that we have this syndrome.

Or worst of all, they don't want to catch it. Hahaha.

Honestly, how can one 'catch' an idea or belief? They are germs now I guess.

This is almost as good as the one I heard about called 'Teenage Rebellion Syndrome' or something of the sort.

Disgraceful.

Okay, I bought it for a while. But I haven't had my coffee yet so I've got an excuse


Sorry folks, this is a parody.

Check out the name of the "author" of that journal article:

Ivor E. Tower

Get it?

Yeah, I get it! But, I think anyone who reads or post on this thread is nuts!

Woops.

Folks, this 'paper' was written by "Ivor E. Tower, M.D". Get it? Ivory Tower? The whole thing is satire.

If this claim from this one questionable source article was real, than many here are being profiled and labeled as combatants etc.

If this list was done in a survey, it would be intersting to see how many fit the exact profile or at what percentage. (there's still hope 4 u
)

I don't discuss most of this outside my therapist's office and even HE doesn't give me much if any time over it. Even here I'm getting tired of writing about it. It breaks the boredom though and in some way is comforting to bring me into focus and being more rational.

It opens up many possibilites, even acceptance, futility and exhaustion in some way. WTSHTF, I would rather stay at home and watch the news than waste my energy and resources trying to run and hide. I tried a little of that after 911 and they always seemed to know where I was as if some manchurian test subject. "If you build them; they will run." I see much of it as provocation to justify their agenda. Fake news media etc.

The seed of distrust has been planted long ago with assasination of JFK and the more recent 911. I've met a few people mentioned in this article and I personally feel they're fighting a hopeless battle against forces they don't fully understand.

Many may not actually think the government is so capable and that the real people behind this are aliens etc. and not exactly these elite puppet groups.

Many of these survivalist groups are also likely to have been infiltrated or even organized to lure these types in. Many may have been manipulated and have tracking devices. The list of possibilites goes on and on and sites like these most likely are very helpful at giving them ideas.


Are you soylent green worthy? Food for thought anyway.

Key point in the article: UNFOUNDED Fear of Government...

I think lots of ATSers who question government actions and ring the alarm bells are doing so based on factual data backed up with plenty of evidence.

Threads are clearly rational and include links to government legislation, laws, rules, etc., that are created to give a "heads up" to the public at large are an invaluable source of knowledge and offer an opportunity to teach the blind to see, so to speak.

Lots of these threads have elucidated certain government actions/plans that, when digested and put into proper context, make it clear that "fear of government" is absolutely legitimate...

In other words, we ain't nuts..."fear of government" based on factual data is totally legitimate, and being labelled "paranoid" for doing so is simply a propaganda mechanism meant to devalue, ridicule, and "point fingers" at folks who are willing to take a stand by questioning authority.

I always love it when these people think that we're mentally ill. They're the ones that are mentally ill for their unfounded blind belief in government policies. I can't stand people who are brainwashed by the government who don't keep an open mind towards things because they're stuck up with the world they live in.

In this day and age, it's hard to tell when anyone is doing a pardody, laughing with us or against us. Many media sources are capable at being used for disinforamtion purposes. Some are more obvious than others.

The biblical story of Noah is one example. God must have a twisted sense of humor like the Wishmaster movies.


Parody site or not, the subject isn't far off topic for a conspiracy (within a conspiracy) site.

I somewhat agree. Ignorant or deceptive conspiracy theorists seem to point the finger towards elected officials for every apparent conspiracy. This not only creates a red herring, but confirms to the real conspirators that the disinfo lies are being spread effectively.

However, I also disagree -- the article seems to paint with a broad brush and characterize all conspiracy theorists in that way.

You make an excellent point.

It is definitely worth noticing – humor is often a great measure of public opinion and concern. It makes the message more subtle, and the motivations harder to scope out.

I don't think it's off topic at all; I think it's a great find. I'm not sure what to think of it exactly: it's poking fun at conspiracy theory and theorists, yes. But it's also poking fun at the intellectual elite ("Ivor E. Tower") and their need to redefine anti-establishmentarianism as "diseased".

It's an interesting piece.

I think it's important to realize we're in some type of theater and someone is entertaining us and themselves in whatever means possible. It would be a shame if this thread went to BTS just because someone posted it like some joke thread, brain teaser etc. It's still in some way; a conspiracy.

Research shows "You are mentally ill"

Research also shows, you annoy me.
And how long do you think that can continue before it adversely affects your health?

LOL -- And which government agency funded this study??? Mental illness infectious? If it is infectious, then it is not a mental illness but a virus or bacteria which produces symptoms of mental illness. And how are the ATS members catching this virus or bacteria? Damn those chemtrails!!! Or is it in the flouride?

Ye i so agree to a certain degree because yes people out there are making websites like the one linked in the first post althouh i do very much doubt whats said is in anyway real.

Just some disgruntled close minder thinking he is making a differerence because he is too close minded to realize what the truth is so he made a bogus website with bogus info.

Or its real and we are all insane.

I agree and my suggestion if that happens would be to request that a mod instead alter the title of the thread to reflect that the article linked in the OP is a joke article, which is being brought to the attention of ATS as evidence of how the image of the conspiracy theorist is being manipulated by media, both serious and comic.

My opinion is that this fits perfectly well in General Conspiracy, or it could go in Education and Media. But even if it's a joke, it's a part of a pattern of media portrayals of anti-government "paranoia" that's important to keep an eye on.

I didn't pick the article apart, but was suspicious regardless of missing the writer's name. "Don't be so gullible Mc Fly!!"-Back to the Future.

What's our addictions to news, sitcoms and parodies? escapism?

I saw this one video yesterday:
