Psychiatric police state: notes from the underground
By Jon Rappoport
January 22, 2015
These are wide-ranging quotes from my work-in-progress, The Underground. They take, as a starting point, the subject of psychiatry, the absurd pseudoscience licensed by the State.
"Whenever you come across a pseudoscience, you're looking at a mask that covers an ideology. And that ideology intends to limit freedom, the free person, the free soul, the free mind, the free psyche, the free creative impulse."
"Modern psychiatry is an updated version of the CIA's MKULTRA mind-control program, adjusted for the masses."
"Psychiatry is basically a mechanism to control people who are dissatisfied, disaffected, rebellious, independent, thoughtful, and then, secondarily, a mechanism to control those who just want to surrender their lives to an external authority and can't believe in religion anymore. Instead of a priest and a church, they have drugs."
"If Huxley's Brave New World is the mountaintop of controlled society, with its genetic manipulations and laboratory births, psychiatry is its ancestor, rambling around in the foothills, pretending to define so-called mental disorders, handing out toxic drugs, giving people electric shocks, performing lobotomies. Psychiatry is the crazy grandfather."
"Psychiatry is a system of arbitrary definitions. When you get past all the pseudo-technical nonsense, you're looking at mind control---the attempt to make people believe consciousness is composed of about 300 disorders."
"Psychiatry is a state-of-mind prison for society. You can have this state of mind or that one, and after we treat you, you can have a normal state of mind."
"But, actually, consciousness is up for grabs. You can have any state of mind you want to. No labels. Does that sound frightening? You're supposed to feel frightened and crawl back into a little hole. That's the game."
"Psychiatry is just another organized religion. Instead of a wafer and a sip of wine, they have drugs. Lots of drugs. Their cosmology is a picture they paint, the subject of which is Normal. Sane. Average. By their average definitions."
"Psychiatry would like to be known as some kind of ultimate information theory. Information theory is what the loser in a poker game is left with. It's all he's got, so he has to go out on the street and try to sell it, hypnotize people with it. Pure scrubbed data, as empty and dead as the face of an old politician."
"Today's psychiatrists are playing around with brain signals. They have no idea what the mind is. No idea what consciousness is. No idea what freedom is. They have no idea how different individuals would be from one another if they broke out of the collective prison of The Normal."
"The Wizard of Psychiatry is a hustler from way back. His job is to make Normal plausible."
"Everything a human being is starts to come into view when he gets rid of Normal."
"Psychiatry and its government, media, and intelligence-agency allies are saying, 'See that crazy killer over there? Anybody could turn into that. Even you. So we have to treat the whole population before somebody starts spraying bullets in your neighborhood. We have to sculpt everybody into a good citizen, an average person.'"
"Psychiatry is the Surveillance Society of the brain. The NSA with toxic drugs."
"Psychiatry is State control of emotion and thought. And its poor cousin, psychology, has become sentimental hokum for the rubes. Slop."
"At the bottom of his titanic pile of bullshit, the Wizard of Psychiatry is saying, 'You're not free.' But you are."
"Sixty years ago, a hundred years ago, there was an idea in America. The Open Road. Travel the open road. Adventure. Psychiatry is one of the disciplines that's tried to shut it down."
"Since there are no definitive physical tests for any of the 300 officially certified mental disorders---no blood tests, no urine tests, no brain scans, no genetic assays---what we're left with is a phantasm-map of Nowhere Land, a philosophy of limitation. A translation of human problems and suffering into a professional liar's language, a made-up nonsensical technical gibberish. And the federal government licenses this as a monopoly."
"There never was, and never will be, a science of consciousness, because by its very nature, consciousness is free and unpredictable. Many people find this hard to swallow, because they fear freedom and hate it. They know they've lost it somewhere, and they don't want anyone else to have it."
"We live in a wilderness of bad poetry and overblown sentimental attachments. Or to put it another way, more and more people are attaching themselves to heraldic promises of salvation and rescue from their problems and the problems of the world. The theme is constant: some thing, some force, some being, some power is going to appear and change the world. This is entitlement on a grand scale. At the core it's surrender of self and surrender of creative power. 'I want to read the book of my life, I don't want to write it.'"
"Psychiatry is the action of painting false pictures inside the mind, and obtaining obedience to those images. It's imposed reality-invention. Meanwhile, under the tons of false information and propaganda that pervade life, the individual is intensely creative; he is perfectly capable of inventing and fleshing out his own reality."
"The real future, the future people run away and hide from, isn't one state or condition or cosmology. It's open. It's the paralleling and intersecting of millions and millions of realities consciously invented by free individuals. No one can predict what this looks like. It isn't a system. It isn't an overall design. It isn't a planned society. It has zero value for the meddlers who fervently believe in one unified shape."
