Truth To Power/Questioning Authority

True Intimacy

No one can have an intimate relationship of ANY kind, physical or non physical, with another individual who perceives him or her self as inherently superior and therefore entitled to impose his or her own will and definitions of reality on the other. Intimacy requires equality as the premise of it's being. Without it; intimacy cannot exist.



Medicalizing Real Illnesses 

Experts have announced that the medicalizing of diabetes has been deemed to be a great success. 

Does that sound absurd to you?

Same here.

Would this kind of reasoning be that known as doublethink if found in an old sci-fi novel?



There is No Absolute Truth in Abstract Concepts

 Apart from Concrete Details

There is no such thing as defining the life and experiences of individuals in terms of abstract truth in absolute terms. The attempt to do so, as has been done by psychiatry with the DSM, in all its pretensions, is insanity itself. You just keep making it worse and worse, by adding more and more, to the damage already done, with the invention of ever more imaginary diseases.


Infinite Tautologies

Sitting in a psychiatrist's office and being labelled as crazy with no prospect of recovery, after 11 minutes have passed since I first said, “how do you do?” is not considered to be an action that is “harmful” to me, by the doctor who labels me that way, which he does BECAUSE I “think” I have been harmed by others, in particular, in my own case, by “others” who are all part of the mental illness system itself!

“Crazy” does not get any crazier than that. Had I laughed out loud at that point I may have had a slightly different label bestowed upon me but the absurdity of it would still be pretty much the same. The feeling of “invisibility” which overcomes many of us in this situation is generated by the system itself. You MUST change this.

Definitions  Updated

What psychiatrists need to define, contain and control the most is psychiatry's ever expanding need to define, contain and control everything and everyone!

Forensics Cops and Psychiatrists

Just as evidence without context is all but meaningless (cops)

So is Context (or theory) without evidence. (psychiatrists, DSM writers)  

In BOTH cases, theory (abstraction) and evidence (concrete proof) must go TOGETHER. Let's sing it now....cause you can't have one without the o...o..other!

Which "Power" Really Does not Like, ...
...and does not really want to hear. So "Power" has instructed Me (in "private" of Course,) to keep my truth to myself, or Power "could"  overpower Me....

No One REALLY "Hides" in Plain Sight
Yes definitely..but still not as much as Psychiatry fears the Idea

Common Manipulations

The first step taken by all domination and control types, of all degrees, from the dysfunctional "competitor"in the family to the psychopath determined to achieve world domination is to reduce the status of the target they want to control ,or "beat," in the contest they are in, to inherently "less than" or "inferior to" the controller. The controllers are always right in their own minds and reality itself will be changed or "spun" to accommodate to their sense of themselves. Their thinking is always circular and always self promoting, even when what is going on has NOTHING at all to do with them.

Once the target of control is selected, step 2 is to get the co-operation of a group to support the controller's agenda, by telling the group members how superior they are to the object of control. The real agenda of course, is CONCEALED from BOTH the target chosen for domination and the controller's supporters.

Sometimes, though not always, the target, and/or group members, reach a point where they "realize their experience" with the controller is not what they thought it was, if the target of control tries to TELL someone about what is really going on, s/he is routinely invalidated for it since the controller has already laid out the groundwork in anticipation of the target's protest by suggesting to the group members that this is a "ploy" of the target's who as a 'defective' tries to blame "others." Sure enough...see how right the controller was about that? Why here is this inferior human, trying to blame the controller ("saviour/helper") for his/her "concern" just as the controller suggested s/he would. wonder the "falsely accused" helper needs to get that defective under control. That is why the group is helping him/her after all.

After that, even if the group eventually sees there is something not right about what is going on between the origin pair, they still go along with it and even often add more threats, intimidation tactics and psychological isolation of the target to the action.

But WHY would they do that,? ask those of you who look for reason (logic) where there is only reason (purpose).

It is because it would not be in the group's "interests" to admit to anything which may cost the group members something.

The controller KNOWS that and HAS known it right from the start of the action he intentionally generated himself between the two SIDES; his target and the group he manipulated to help him gain power and control OVER his target.

They do it "because it works." Reality may have little or nothing at ALL to do with it.

It is about the domination power and control for it's own sake. It is also about controllers KNOWING that the masses of followers will look for a good reason for the controller to want it and what they will look for is something to do with using IT for a "good" reason. It does not occur to the masses that the reason is the FEELING the controller gets from CONTROLLING everyone. The justification for IT is the sense of "superiority" the controller gets from doing it and that is ALSO the stating point. The controller always needs to prove his/her "superiority" to him/herself. Everyone else is just a prop in the "game" of the controller's self delusion..s/he "wins" as S/HE perceives "winning" for the sake of "winning." PERIOD. There is no reason in what s/he does. However there is a reason FOR what s/he does, even though that reason is irrational.

If someone is telling you how superior you are to one of "them" let the warning sirens and the controller alert warning signs go off in your head. For this is one of the "contestants" in life and though not all of them will go to ANY lengths to "win" that contest or "game" they think they are in, SOME of them will and you in your desire to feel "superior" to them may end up in a nice mess you won't be able to 'fix" while the one who led you into the mess may actually benefit from all the losses s/he causes for you and others because "what s/he does with problems is hand them to someone else;" his target AND his supporters.

It's about power, domination, control and "responsibility." It's also about identifying "The Source" of the REAL problem that is creating and defining reality itself and generating escape proof paradoxes to do so.

Come out of the dysfunctional group trance. "You are "as sleepwalkers."


Cautionary note: the reason you perceive family members and others as sincere in their beliefs about the target is because they often ARE sincere. Many of them are also being conned by the controller. Nevertheless the fact that they are sincere does not make them, nor those who are helping the controller to control the target, "right." sincere and right are not the same thing. This is another example of HOW the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Whether you intended to do harm or not, you ARE doing harm.

Use of Language

One of the things that the late activist, Judi Chamberlin and I were in agreement on was the idea of taking the languageaway from our controllers/abusers. It is something that comedians use as a tool as well since doing so takes the power away from those who use the language to reduce us to “less than” so that they can delude themselves that they are “more than” and therefore entitled to control us.

That being stated then,' How are all you psychiatrists enjoying my writing behaviours?”


I was so depressed when my marriage broke up that instead of taking an anti depressant as suggested by my doctor, I got a dog instead and named him Paxil. 

I am doing all right now, thanks to Paxil.

You are not really objective observers of inherently defective human beings. That's a delusion.

You are DEFECTIVE observers of equal human beings in distress, caused by events, traumas relationships, drug and alcohol problems, or beliefs and often a combination of some of those things.  To “treat” people like self-contained “disease processes” without relationship to external reality and other people is probably the MOST damaging, isolating thing you could do. So I will ask you from here, so that you can hide and feel safe; WHY are you doing this to “us”?

Collective Pretensions

If you are worrying about how you look and sound to others, as compared to how you actually are, does that not mean that at some level of your being you actually KNOW that you are splitting and operating from behind a facade? Do you think other people don't know that or are you just counting on them joining you in the Pretence so that they too can be popular, like you, for co-operating with the currently promoted, splitting agenda and calling it “normal?”

Guess this is maybe why you folks have turned words like “compliance” into “good” character traits huh? Why....if even YOU high minded folks diagnosing the world are doing it, it MUST be right and normal! 

Seeing Things
Seeing Things
Does This Sound Familiar to Most of You?
Now do you think that is because all of us who say this sort of thing are just out of touch with reality or is it because we are IN touch with it and some
other people are having trouble accepting things at face value?

It's Nameless 

We live in a schizophrenic SOCIETY which has a grocery store brand called “No Name” which is meant to indicate that this is not a brand name and, which is registered AS a brand name, so that “no name” cannot be used by anyone else who wants to claim their generic, non branded product has “no name!”
