Thank you for being honest and fresh. We don't have enough of honesty these days. It is sad for a so called professional to embrace the deception
and deceit of our daily reality, it is another for them to call anyone who disagrees with them as being some mental case.
I fully agree that some of histories most illuminated figures have been those that by today's professional psychiatric assessment would be called
insane or deranged. Anything but normal. If I recall, Newton was called crazy and yes his idea about gravity was insane and crazy, but guess what?
He was right when everyone around him called him different and who threatened the status quo. He had the courage to believe in himself because he knew
what the pundits did not. That he was right and he knew it.
I think it is sad for those that embrace the new religion of psychiatry to do so as if it was something real and beneficial to humanity. Nothing could
be further from the truth. To be a high priest in the world of mental health requires that you embrace the need for pills.....and more pills. It
becomes about pushing pharmaceutical products because of kickbacks. It becomes about greed over people and well, to have a patient he needs to have a
problem. Provide a diagnosis and you have a customer that can be used to milk the insurance companies.
I ask you, does this sound normal to you? While it may business as usual, it is clearly insane and I for one know it without having to have a PHD to
know so. I hate the term normal. It reminds me of our government telling us a lie and calling it a truth. I hate the constant reversal of what is
real, what is true and what is good for us when in fact it is just the opposite. It is that inability to be honest. To say what is on our minds
without getting all wrapped up in niceties that is missing from most Americans.
When we are told lies that are truths, what is bad for us is good for us and what is up is down and what is down is up. This is when I for one begin
to see that those professionals that embrace their so called reality, do so because it suits them. It provides an income and for many it strokes the
ego. Feeding the the ego beast is what these so called professionals are all about with their fancy cars, fancy friends, fancy clothes. End the end
it will be these types that will perish by their own doing.
If our world ever comes tumbling down, those that our society called strange and less than normal are the people within our society that will end up
being alive long after those so called professionals. You see, I learned a valuable lesson in life one day long, long ago. It is still with me and
that lesson for many will be learned the hard way.
Those that feel on top of the world today with their status, wealth, position, material possessions, multiple degrees and years of education, all of
these types will become their own victims when the dream bubble gets burst. It will be these so called normal people that will be going around
killing and doing things that would have been unimaginable in the years before apocalypse. It will be the so called normal people that will be acting
crazy. How ironic in my book.
I firmly believe or suspect that our nation and our so called reality is going to burst again soon and then and only then will those that are now
called professionally sane and competent become the mental cases of the world. When the veil comes off, all those now that think they are so normal
are going to find out just how abnormal they really were. Today, those that society has branded or stigmatized as a mental case are going to once
again prove just how wrong people really were.
While I will admit there are a lot of mental cases, but for the most part I will embrace the veterans when the dream collapses. They are now mostly
called mental, but when the dream collapses, they will once again be seen as normal. On that day I know the so called professionals will be embracing
death because being crazy is different from acting crazy and to a psychiatrist it will be too late to learn that lesson.
The veterans will know how to deal with reality, because they have seen or done what all the so called normal people have never had to do. These
veteran types and others like them are going to once again become"Normal" to what the average citizen thinks of them. Most will never understand
about what is normal and what really is insane until its too late. Being different is not being mental. Being honest and candid is perhaps being
mental, but if it is, I for one will embrace it for being the better alternative.
Anyway, thanks for the honest posting. I for one enjoyed it. Anyway, your fresh remarks reminded me of better times that are almost gone from my
memories. It was good to think about what is really real. I needed that break.
