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

Being Tested

This is usually done to see what kind of a reaction the "tester" can get from us.

This is also part of why many of us understand we are a bit more aware than others, which is then of course invalidated by our "testers" who want it to be themselves, who are the "more aware."

Concrete power comes in very handy when you want to prove that kind of thing to yourself, while avoiding any challenges to your power and authority, doesn't it?

Let me give you an example out of my own concrete experience in something that occurred not too long ago.

This one is a kind of a cop test. It is also a concrete example of the absence of any real communication because we are not talking on the same level about the same experience of reality, as attached to the same premise of thought. Let me demonstrate how people can APPEAR to be having the same conversation when in fact it is one two different levels of thought.

Once upon a time, ....I got a buzz from the front entrance of the building from someone claiming to be the "police". Now the police told me they were there because I had called them. I had NOT called them. So this is the starting point of the exchange and as you can see it is two opposing versions of "reality." Reality itself is now "split."

These are-

One: I called the police.

Two: I did not call the police.

Obviously BOTH of these cannot be true at the same time. That means there is information missing, added or spun. So which is it?

There is also a third possibility which may exist which would mean that both myself and the police believe we are telling the truth and also that the other one MAY not be for some hidden reason. Can you think of that as a possibility?

Since I KNOW I did not call the police, I must then assume that whomever is telling me they are the police really are, who they say they are, or are not the police and someone claiming to be the police. This is not so far fetched as some may think since one of the things manipulators do is get co-operation from people by assuming the role of someone in "authority " whom the masses generally will not question. People will buzz "authority" into a building with a controlled entrance, when they would not buzz a stranger in. It is also true that people who perceive themselves as "superior" to other tenants can be easily talked into deciding for others WHO should b let in to see them, sometimes even going so far as to bring them right to the door of someone else. Appealing to the "superiority" of some over those defective/inferior others is a very common ploy used by con artists.

(in the extreme form we get the "Adolph"s or Genghis Khans as the controller)

Back to the police drama here:

So in this case I did not press the buzzer to let "the police" in but to be sure, I put clothes on,(was still in my sleep-shirt) and then went out to check the entrance door.

There were two police officers (I ASSUMED the uniforms were not costume rentals) motionless, down the hall, in an observation type pose.

(seeing where I came out or who i was???)

"You got in then?" I said, stating the obvious.

"Well, said the female of the team, " If you didn't call the police why did you come out to look?"

Can anyone HEAR that question beyond the parameters being used to ask it? Is the question really logical?

This is an example of meaning understood attached to a specific, predefined, premise. It you think there is only one possible reason, or answer, then your thought processes will go in that direction and seem like a logical progression. But what if there are several possible answers to the question? Remember that MY experience of this communication transaction is based on my KNOWING, beyond any doubt, that I did NOT call the police this time.

(when I really DO call them they prefer to ignore me...)

So from MY point of view, since I know that as MY premise of thought, either the police are lying, or they believe what they are saying for some reason they are not sharing with me. I don't know which that is though at that point.

Another possibility is that someone else called the police claiming they were me, for what could also be several possible reasons, which have nothing to do with "logic." So that may mean that the police are not lying to me and believe what they are saying. So this transaction between us is vague and full of incorrect or incomplete, information and though I may well KNOW that, I do NOT know which version of "reality" is the correct one, even if I can eliminate SOME of the misinformation or "disinformation."

(lying wearing formal attire)

So this is a form of disconnect from CONCRETE reality. There is SOME meaning there but not enough (or sometimes too MANY possibilities) to truly clarify or be certain, about , what it is that is actually going on in REALITY.

Anyone on the receiving end of this shit for a long period of time can reach the point where identifying concrete reality becomes impossible, and if you can't, confusion, or being triggered into an altered state, is almost predictable. If those around you treat you as if such things are part of being an 'inferior" human, or the result of a self contained "defective" mind, the person driven into that state, often by other people, being duplicitous as hell, acting out as a "superior" group, cannot escape the "diagnosis." In reality this is nothing at all like "diabetes,"

For some of us, this routine is very much like an any other ongoing relationship with a controller, or abuser, or con artist. If enough people get involved, all focused on someone who is "having trouble making sense of things," whom they treat as a self contained "defective" and whom they NEVER talk TO genuinely, or directly, with an intent to resolve the problem, but instead apply group pressure to the individual to have him, or her, accept him/herself as "sick," FOR being unable to identify concrete reality, the chances are very good that the individual so defined will break under that kind of pressure.

In such cases, and I believe they are very common, it is the ongoing horrendous stress levels, coupled with the inability to identify concrete reality which triggers the altered state which is like a dream state of symbolic meaning, or more often a nightmare, that never ends. Of course when the individual breaks the controllers/abusers/con artists usually cite that as "proof' that their target was "defective" in the first place and most of the supporters of that individual will accept that"explanation." It fits into their belief system quite nicely. Very often that was the point of the action in the FIRST place. There are a whole lot of real "winners" in the "game of life."

Of course, NO ONE can be blamed for this outcome, can they?.... if it is a self contained "condition" which has nothing at all to do with anyone else, or what they did.....

These are the "others" who must never be blamed. Of course they are not "really" blaming the individual target are they? It's bad BRAIN chemistry that cause the targeted "defective" to be unable to identify concrete reality or "make sense of things." It's NO ONE'S FAULT really; not even the inferior defective one's fault as s/he can't help being confused about her/his own experience with a mal-functioning BRAIN. There- now everyone is off the hook and no one needs to feel responsible for any of it and since that's the goal, it's mission accomplished.

Now all we have to do is add the "failure "to give up any possibility of real resolution to the outcome as another "symptom" of the defective one's sick brain and the tautological argument can be kept in play indefinitely to the point of obtaining INFINITE power and control over anyone who tries to achieve any real resolution. For resolution is not the goal. Preventing any REAL resolution is now the goal and the production of multiple versions of "reality", with the chaos and confusion that generates helps to maintain It.

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!”
