Normality Again


And even though on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 153, and Occupy Wall Street and those global revolutions Occupy Together are still moving fast, I still find myself recycling this blog again with another one of those recycle this blog posts in an attempt to maintain content for this blog and my other blog whenever web 2.0 social media user generated content blaghers block possible.

And again on this blogging day, I find myself reposting yet another one of those blog posts from sometime a whole ago for when blogger life seems as if it wants to blaghers block pass me by.

Who is to decide what normal is. I ran across this poster written by Janet Foner from Support Coalition International, now called MindFreedom, a human rights and alternatives to psychiatry and the mental death system organization the other day. And I find the poster really interesting, almost sort of funny and hilarious, so I thought to repost it because hey, it’s less writing sometimes. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?

Ten Warning Signs of “Normality”

Mad scientists are working around the clock to discover the cure for “normality,” a serious and persistent “chronic mental illness”” afflicting much of the general population. Support Coalition International, an alliance led by psychiatric survivors and open to the public, has become very concerned recently as a “norm-demic” has hit the streets, forcing many people formerly safe from this afflicton to recognize that they, too, have caught the dreaded disease.

Fortunately, our scientists have been able to uncover the ten warning signs of “normality.”

Take this free self-test:

1. COOL: You’re cool, you hold everything in and always put “a good face on it” – you never cry or laugh much, or show emotion in any way, certainly not in public. Your psych cia trick label is “tearlessnivity.”

2. SERIOUS: You always do the proper thing – never anything unusual, playful, spontaneous, “different”, wild, or creative, if you can help it. You believe playing and being silly are beneath your dignity and only for children. You have a psych trick label of “stiff upper lippity.”

3. NICE: You always act nice even if you can’t stand the person to whom you’re talking. You never say what you’re really thinking. Your diagnosis: “inappropriate smiling.”

4. RIGHT: You always do everything right _wear the “right clothes”, say the “right thing”, associate only with the “right people” – you know there is only one right way, and it’s you way. You are diagnosed as “conformity prone.”

5. BORING: Your conversations, life and living space are dull and boring, and your lawn is always manicured no matter what. In the more advanced stages you have much inner “lifelessness” and “flat affect” – in other words, you are one ot the “walking dead.” Your psych cia trick label is “hyper-inactivity.”

6. OBEDIENT: You always try not to offend anyone, especially those in authority – your security seems to depend on that. So therefore you are willing to put expediency ahead of principles. Your psychiatric label is “adjustment prone/adjustment reaction.”

7. GULLIBLE: You believe that the doctor always knows best, that the media is telling the truth (major newspapers always print the facts, right?), and that the medical model of ?mental illness” has been proven scientifically. Your diagnoses is “normal naivete’ disorder.”

8. AVOID FEELINGS: You are out of touch with yourself, with the natural world, and with what is going on with other people. It has become too hard to face how others are being oppressed, so you choose a more comfortable path. TV starts to look very, very good. You are labeled with severe blinder-itis.”

9. DON”T TRUST YOURSELF: You learned in school that it’s important to always pay attention to those in charge and not to trust your own thinking. You learned to “play the game,” and you are still doing that. You believe your own lies. You have an advanced case of “schoolmania,” which, if not stopped in its early stages can lead to severe overwork and, in advanced stages, “corporate asskissingitis.”

10. INDOORISM: You lost touch with wildness in nature, and within your own strong feelings. You do not rebel against ecological destruction. Label: “Tame.”

DON’T PANIC: If you have two or more of these signs, within any lunar cycle, it is not too late. Read Dendron News, support one another, get out into nature and especially rake action to stop psychiatric oppression before serious persistent “Normality” sets in.

Diabetes Again

And so what’s that I web 2.0 social media user generated content blagher hear? Bellevue Hospital to be found in that city of New York, is building another hospital solely for all the people its hospital has given diabetes to with all of its psych cia trick drugs who are left to die homeless in the streets in the war on the poor or something like that to put it blogger bluntly. And psychiatry kills, a phrase that is rarely or never uttered in mainstream political campaigns or what not. Abolish forced psychiatric treatment. And for all things alternative to the mental health death system, MindFreedom International is a great anti psych cia trick website to visit. And so I thought to post this post about diabetes that found itself on this blog some time a while ago in random blogger thoughts on this blogging day…

Why does the word “Diabetes” sound like the word “Diablo”, which means Devil in Spanish? Is there some sort of link between the two words. For what reason does diabetes top the list of diseases in poor neighborhoods? Is diabetes a poor people disease and for what reason. I was walking through a poor neighborhood the other day, and every other sign on health facilities had the word diabetes in it. Is diabetes an evil disease of the Devil designed to kill off the poor or is it a disease affecting the population as a whole and knows no class boundary. And who are the poor, for the poor we will have always with us. And who is the Devil in this case, the food industry or someone or something else. Is diabetes a fight against the devil and a battle between good and evil. I can only think poor people are more susceptible to diabetes simply because they are more likely to eat junk food, mainly soda pops which are laced with sugar, white processed sugar and other sugary unhealthy foods, or maybe poor people are less aware or concerned with diet and nutrition or simply just cannot afford to eat healthy. And what’s up with all of those buy and use our diabetes products that we advertise and market for your sugar insulin type 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,800 and 9000 diabetes that we create so that we can have money, money and more money for the war on the poor industry products that are on the prick yourself, shoot yourself up with diabetes needles and use this cool trendy latest diabetes gadget market these days. What is the meaning of this probably recent phenomenon and what if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State?

Honor The Veterans?

Hey again bloggers or whoever could be reading this blog. Is tomorrow, 11.11.11, Veterans Day or something according to that North American Gregorian calendar on the wall and all of those newspaper articles for Veterans Day that find themselves in newspaperland on this day. Well then I guess I could find it Veterans Day appropriate to post another one of those recycle this blog posts for Veterans Day day on this blagh in an attempt to maintain content for this blog whenever web 2.0 social media user generated content blaghers block possible.

Honor The Veterans?

And on this day finds itself another one of those Sundays that has rolled around. The day of the sun, the day of rest, the sabbath. Or is that Saturday. And yet I find myself recycling this blog with posts that have already been posted on this blog for some reason or another in an attempt to maintain content for this blog and my other blog whenever blaghers block possible. And so it isn’t exactly Veterans Day on this day as far as that calendar on the wall says, as this is yet another one of those Orwellian news speak like posts that finds itself on this blog, though I would think that some sort of patriotic holiday has passed according to that American Gregorian calendar on the wall.

I thought I heard someone say yesterday that today or tomorrow is Veterans Day, another one of those patriotic holidays where the flag wavers come out in force. Let me check the calendar to see. Oh yeah, the calendar says Veterans day is today. Is this day observed in America only, or is this day observed in the rest of the world also? And so I find myself reposting a posting I posted several months ago for Memorial day, another one of those patriot holidays where the American flag wavers come out in force. Veterans account for a majority of the homeless mentally ill population these days, and a majority of them are disabled now as a result. For what reason is this an honor to support? I consider myself antipsychiatricky and do not believe mental illness exists and that psychiatry kills and originates from Nazi Germany where psych cia trists were mass murderers in white coats as is the case today, and that the mental death system is also an extension of Orwellianism, where family members turn in family members, and neighbors turn in neighbors to the thought police for thought crimes. Psychiatry and psych trickery is an art and not a science. And so I would like to think of mental illness as problems in living. And I believe in the abolishment of forced psych cia trick treatment that is often cruel and inhumane. Therapy? The rap y? Y the rap? Therapist, The rapist. Mind Freedom is a great website to read for all things alternative to the mental death system. And so today is Memorial Day in America. I mean Veterans day in America. A celebration of the war day. Another one of those patriotic holidays. The flag wavers are out and yellow ribbons, badges of honor, medals, parades, marches, prayers, patriotic songs, tributes and ceremonies are being broadcast everywhere. The headlines read “Honor the dead soldiers, honor the fallen soldiers and comrades”. Today is the ultimate patriotic fanatic holiday, or the ultimate hate hour as George Orwell might say. My question of the day; for what reason is it an honor to volunteer to be fodder for the canon. For what reason is it an honor to die for nothing, to fight for reasons that do not exist, to fight against the flesh for powers that be that one cannot even see. For what reason is it an honor to be so poor that one will volunteer their life in exchange for money after one leaves the service, if one leaves the service. For what reason is it an honor for persons to be brainwashed with propaganda, theirs or mine. For what reason is it an honor to become a violent person and pick up a gun and kill another person for no reason at all, except for the fact that guns have been invented, the worst invention of an industry ever. For what reason is it an honor to be a veteran who now make up the majority of the homeless population. For what reason is it an honor to attend one of those military sponsored funerals and cry over the image of a flag that propagates violence, the same flag that caused ones death. For what reason is it an honor to fall and die for nothing. For what reason is it an honor to promote this ideology. What is heroic about all of this? And why does the word “Patriot” have the word “Riot” in it? And why does the word “Military” militant militia have the word “Mal” in it? “Parens Patriae, father of the people”, the guardian. That phrase seems to be the basis of an endless amount of death and suffering in the world; the protection of property or other material things. I saw Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11 documentary. It is nineteen eighty four and Orwellianism is everywhere at its best today. The war is not meant to be won. It is meant to be a continuous cycle, I think. Is it written somewhere that this must all come to pass? Happy beach bar b queing Memorial day, I mean Veterans day. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?

A Gun Bill

And so this is yet another one of those Orwellian like news speak of a blog posts that found itself posted on this blog sometime a while ago in an attempt to maintain content for this blog and my other blog whenever web 2.0 social media user generated content blaghers block possible.

There was a headline in the news yesterday on the Yahoo homepage that read “Gun bill inspired by “A place where gun violence occurred”, and the article went on to say something about the mentally ill will be targeted and asked for documentation when they go to buy guns. Hugh? Is not the problem with guns that guns are sold everywhere to anyone at all, and not the people. And there was a sales excerpt in this past weeks Sunday newspaper for a sports store. This advertisement was for the hunting section of their store and it pictured a man dressed in camouflage with a gun tossed over his shoulder and there were photos of guns and rifles with brand names and fancy descriptions for sale all over the page. Are people animals who are people to be hunted? Is hunting for animals and people now considered a sport to be sold in the malls of America and on sales brochures next to roller skates and advertised in the papers for all to see. Is this not the same? Is not the problem that the images of guns are found in television, film, commercials, posters, newspapers, cartoons, video games and marketing and advertisements everywhere these days. Does not advertising influence society. I could cut and paste my blog entries over and over in my appeal to banish guns from every human being on planet earth. Guns are the worst invention of a death industry ever. Everyday someone loses their lives to random acts of gun violence for no reason at all except for the fact that guns have been invented. It is a story that has been told yesterday and will be told tomorrow with no end in sight. It is an industry that feeds upon itself, advertisement breeds crime which breeds news, which breeds crime, which breeds more advertisement which breeds more crime. What would happen if there were no crime tomorrow. Would a lot of people be out of a job? Will the cycle of the beast that has it’s grip on humanity ever end. Should not guns be abolished from humanity as a whole, from everyone on the face of planet earth. And then there is that constitutional 4th amendment, the right to bear arms that should be abolished or rewritten to abolish guns and replace them with sticks and stones or something. The idea that property, material goods are worth more than life. And the whole world is paying with the loss of human life which seems to be a disposal commodity in the war industry of people against humanity. And my friend gave me a flyer as we were discussing the latest atrocity of the day in relation to gun violence. It is a flyer she received back in April at Union Square Park of New York City. And it is a flyer about gun violence and psychiatry. The Pharmaceutical industry is bigger than the war industry. Psychiatry Kills. Abolished forced psychiatric treatment. And what’s that “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest” film by Ken Kesey all about anyway. That’s a whole another blog posting. For all things human rights and psych cia trickery and alternatives to the mental death system, Mindfreedom is a great website to visit. I am one voice, one blogger. No one is free when others are oppressed. Is another world possible. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind. And what if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State?
And that flyer went on to read:

What caused the tragedy in “this state”?

It was reported in the Times and the Post Wednesday:

The killer had been taking anti-depressants.

All too often in the present age, we hear the tragic news of a senseless massacre somewhere in the country. Experience has shown, that the killer has almost always, if not absolutely always, been someone who had been prescribed anti-depressants.

The killers with names were kids who had been prescribed the anti-depressant ritalin.
The man who shot someone at this place had been prescribed an anti-depressant whose classic symptom is extreme rage directed at one specific person. The killers in the recent massacres in three different states, also one in another state, had been taking various prescription anti depressants.

Pharmaceutical drugs are prescribed, not as a last resort but as a first thought, not hesitantly but hastily and with excess. They are not properly used, but abused, with no thought of the side effects of taking chemicals which nature did not produce and evolution did not plan for us to be subjected to, like bug spray or insecticide. And this is not a small and isolated phenomenon, but rather a deliberate and systematic poisoning of the bodies and minds of the American people, on an epidemic scale.

The concentration of power, Mr. Moneybags, the State, which controls the American military-industrial complex and the pharmaceutical chemical companies that are an integral part of that system, the State, which, as Eisenhower warned, would one day gain undue influence and endanger our Liberties, has an interest in promoting this epidemic scourge of prescription drug use. Hundreds of billions of dollars a year, are made by the corporations that sell these drugs. It is big business. In addition, the State which experience has shown, for thousands of years all over the globe, tends to want to empower itself and dis-empower the People, gets exactly that benefit from this epidemic of drug use. Power and authority, competency and incompetency breeds corruption. It dis-empowers individuals by making them unhealthy. And it dis-empowers the community and the nation, by making people distrustful of each other; by making people think that their neighbor is a crazy person who they must be protected from; by persuading the People to accept, even to demand, increased police power of the State to protect them. Under such conditions even the will to independence vanishes.

The innovations of scientists and engineers are stolen and subverted by the concentrations of power; a virtue has become a vice, and chemical technology, which can and of right ought to be a liberating force in society, becomes enslaving.

Doctors are encouraged, by the drug industry, to prescribe artificial drugs to their patients. It is a regular practice, for the drug companies to pay a doctor a fee every time that doctor prescribes one of their drugs. It is no secret. In this way, the basic essential character of the American medical profession becomes one of conflict of interest.

The companies that make these drugs exert a great deal of pressure upon the mass media. There are huge advertising contracts, and there is an overlap of ownership between the drug companies and the media companies. The fact that a mass murderer was taking prescription drugs, is one of those things that will show up once in the newspapers, but is immediately and finally buried, and mum becomes the word.

There have been a thousand analyses of the killer in papers, of his history, his personality, his psychological problems; there have been a thousand demands for increased police powers; there have been a thousand calls for the outlawing of guns, and a general de-clawing of the People. But has anyone asked, how is it that society produces so many sick people?

Prescription anti-depressants are known to be a common cause of suicide; they are known to be a constant presence in senseless massacres. Surely the number of individual murders caused by these drugs must be many times greater than the number of massacres. And if there are so many suicides and murders, how many people taking pharmaceuticals must be gravely suffering, but have not quite yet arrived at the point of suicide or murder?

This epidemic of drug use, this deliberate poisoning of the bodies and minds of the American people, this deliberate, and thus far largely successful, did-empowerment of the American people, must stop. It is our purpose to reveal this truth to the American people, so that we may once again live in a sane and healthy society and the tragic deaths of so many good people in this State shall not have been in vain.

The Lives They Left Behind

The only thing constant is change and some stories do not end as you expect. Everything that glitters is not gold. The saddest story every told, the saddest song ever sung in what could be called the blues. And so I find myself posting another post that found itself on this blog sometime a while ago in an attempt to maintain content for this blog whenever possible. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind

I do not know what this is all about, but sometimes I find myself reading the newspapers just to find something to blah blog about. And this time a listing in the Village Voice seemed interesting. It’s an exhibit about leftover baggage and the lives of psychiatric inmates that were left behind in a suitcase called “The Lives They Left Behind:Suitcases From a State Hospital Attic.” I guess the title may be self explanatory. In the attic of one of the abandoned buildings of a State Psychiatric Hospital building, workers discovered a stack of suitcases that belonged to former patients. Their personal belongings, along with their medical records, has inspired a fascinating exhibition at the New York Public Library. And as being anti psychiatric state and anti psych cia trick association, this is an exhibit that I would be interesting in seeing. And just the idea that ones life can be condensed to a suitcase is a lot to comprehend to me. The pharmaceutical industry seems to be bigger than the war industry these days. Psychiatry Kills. Abolish forced psychiatric treatment. For all things human rights and alternatives to psychiatry and the mental death system, Support Coalition International is a great website to visit. No one is free while others are oppressed. Is another world possible. And what does this have to do with a No Police State.

The Headlines

And so this is yet another one of those recycle this blog posts, because hey, it’s less writing sometimes. I think.

And the headlines in New York City say today that another person has lost their life to gun violence, for no reason at all except for the fact that guns have been invented. And this time psychiatric genocide and the mental death system seems to be involved. And as I have blah blogged about the Veterans, psych trickery and violence a few blog posts ago, I could easily copy the same blog entry over and over in my appeal to end gun violence. And as those postings went; I oppose the psych trick system, I am anti medical model, National Alliance For The Mentally Ill, an organization of parents who lock up their children in psych wards, and American Psychiatric Association, and consider myself anti psych”c.i.a”trickery abuse, against the psychiatric state and do not believe mental illness exists and that psychiatry kills and originates from the Holocaust eugenics and from the extermination and persecution of thousands of psychiatric inmates during Hitler’s Third Reich in Nazi Germany where psychiatrists were mass murderers in white coats who fed on the poor, powerless and marginalized, as is the case today, and that the mental death system is also an extension of Orwellianism, where family members turn in family members, and neighbors turn in neighbors to the thought police for thought crimes. And a mans enemies shall be those of his own household. Psychiatry and psych trickery is an art and not a science. And so I would like to think of mental illness as problems in living and society. And I believe in the abolishment of forced psych cia trick treatment that is often oppressive, cruel, tyrannical, humiliating, torture, inhumane and a form of social control. Psychiatric drugs, psychotropic drugs and forced drugging kills. Therapy? The rap y? Y the rap? Therapist, The rapist. Mind Freedom is a great website to read for all things alternative to the mental health death system. And as I have written in what seems like every other blog posting, who invented guns? Guns are the worst invention of an industry ever. And the news stories are endless of persons losing their lives to gun violence on a daily basis as the news stories were yesterday and the news story will be tomorrow with no end in sight, for no reason at all except for the fact that guns have been invented. I could copy my blog entries over and over in my appeal to banish the gun industry and guns from every human being on the face of planet earth and to end the use of the images of guns in all forms of advertising, marketing, film and television as I have written in blog posts of the past. Does not advertising influence society. Are the slaughters of wars debasing the value of human life? Will the beast, who or whatever it is, ever release it’s grip on mankind? Are the standards of social behavior declining? Is there a worldwide moral breakdown? Is society collapsing? Where is the world headed, is there hope? And one can turn the page of the newspaper to forget about these stories and atrocities of the world, yet they still exist.I am only one blogger, one voice. No one is free while others are oppressed. Is another world possible. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?

Big Pharma

And even though this post does not find itself addressing that all too well known topic of drugs, or does it? It does happen to find itself blogging about the psychiatric industry, and big pharma which seems to be bigger than the war industry sometimes. And so I find myself blogging about the phrases Canada drugs, as in I assume drugs one can buy from Canada, over the counter drugs, as in I assume drugs one can buy over the counter, and buy lipitor, you know, that drug that probably finds itself in practically every single commercial on television. And so it seems that now with the invention of all things internet and online shopping, one can shop for those drugs without ever having to leave home, or at least without ever having to leave one of those computers. Now that’s blogger interesting. And at CanadaDrugCenter.com one can find those pharmaceuticals they may be looking for, as they are an online pharmacy where one can buy prescription and non prescription drugs to medicate a nation in some sort of way, as now finding those drugs can be just a website visit away.

Normality

And again on this blogging day, I find myself reposting yet another one of those blog posts from sometime a whole ago for when blogger life seems as if it wants to blaghers block pass me by.

Who is to decide what normal is.

DON’T PANIC: If you have two or more of these signs, within any lunar cycle, it is not too late. Read Dendron News, support one another, get out into nature and especially rake action to stop psychiatric oppression before serious persistent “Normality” sets in.

A Gun Bill

Okay so here’s another one of those posts that was written on this blog some time a while ago. It’s just that hey, it’s easier to recycle this blog sometimes in that what to write on this blog for the sake of maintaining content whenever possible bloggers block, I think…

There was a headline in the news yesterday on the Yahoo homepage that read “Gun bill inspired by “A place where gun violence occurred”, and the article went on to say something about the mentally ill will be targeted and asked for documentation when they go to buy guns.

Is hunting for animals and people now considered a sport to be sold in the malls of America and on sales brochures next to roller skates and advertised in the papers for all to see. Is this not the same? Is not the problem that the images of guns are found in television, film, commercials, posters, newspapers, cartoons, video games and marketing and advertisements everywhere these days. Does not advertising influence society. I could cut and paste my blog entries over and over in my appeal to abolish guns. Guns are the worst invention of an industry ever. Everyday someone loses their lives to random acts of gun violence for no reason at all except for the fact that guns have been invented. It is a story that has been told yesterday and will be told tomorrow with no end in sight. It is an industry that feeds on itself, advertisement breeds crime which breeds news, which breeds crime, which breeds more advertisement which breeds more crime. Will the cycle of the beast that has it’s grip on humanity ever end. Should not guns be abolished from humanity as a whole, from everyone on the face of planet earth. And then there is that constitutional 4th amendment, the right to bear arms that should be abolished or rewritten to abolish guns and replace them with sticks and stones or something. The idea that property, material goods are worth more than life. And the whole world is paying with the loss of human life which seems to be a disposal commodity in the war industry of people against humanity. And my friend gave me a flyer as we were discussing the latest atrocity of the day in relation to gun violence. It is a flyer she received back in April at Union Square Park of New York City. And it is a flyer about gun violence and psychiatry. The Pharmaceutical industry is bigger than the war industry. Psychiatry Kills. Abolished forced psychiatric treatment. And what’s that “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest” film by Ken Kesey all about anyway. That’s a whole another blog posting. For all things human rights and psych cia trickery and alternatives to the mental death system, Mindfreedom is a great website to visit. I am one voice, one blogger. Is another world possible. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?
And the flyer went on to read:

What caused the tragedy in “this state”?

It was reported in the Times and the Post Wednesday:

The killer had been taking anti-depressants.

All too often in the present age, we hear the tragic news of a senseless massacre somewhere in the country. Experience has shown, that the killer has almost always, if not absolutely always, been someone who had been prescribed anti-depressants.

The killers with names were kids who had been prescribed the anti-depressant ritalin.
The man who shot someone at this place had been prescribed an anti-depressant whose classic symptom is extreme rage directed at one specific person. The killers in the recent massacres in three different states, also one in another state, had been taking various prescription anti depressants.

Pharmaceutical drugs are prescribed, not as a last resort but as a first thought, not hesitantly but hastily and with excess. They are not properly used, but abused, with no thought of the side effects of taking chemicals which nature did not produce and evolution did not plan for us to be subjected to, like bug spray or insecticide. And this is not a small and isolated phenomenon, but rather a deliberate and systematic poisoning of the bodies and minds of the American people, on an epidemic scale.

The concentration of power, Mr. Moneybags, the State, which controls the American military-industrial complex and the pharmaceutical chemical companies that are an integral part of that system, the State, which, as Eisenhower warned, would one day gain undue influence and endanger our Liberties, has an interest in promoting this epidemic scourge of prescription drug use. Hundreds of billions of dollars a year, are made by the corporations that sell these drugs. It is big business. In addition, the State which experience has shown, for thousands of years all over the globe, tends to want to empower itself and dis-empower the People, gets exactly that benefit from this epidemic of drug use. Power and authority, competency and incompetency breeds corruption. It dis-empowers individuals by making them unhealthy. And it dis-empowers the community and the nation, by making people distrustful of each other; by making people think that their neighbor is a crazy person who they must be protected from; by persuading the People to accept, even to demand, increased police power of the State to protect them. Under such conditions even the will to independence vanishes.

The innovations of scientists and engineers are stolen and subverted by the concentrations of power; a virtue has become a vice, and chemical technology, which can and of right ought to be a liberating force in society, becomes enslaving.

Doctors are encouraged, by the drug industry, to prescribe artificial drugs to their patients. It is a regular practice, for the drug companies to pay a doctor a fee every time that doctor prescribes one of their drugs. It is no secret. In this way, the basic essential character of the American medical profession becomes one of conflict of interest.

The companies that make these drugs exert a great deal of pressure upon the mass media. There are huge advertising contracts, and there is an overlap of ownership between the drug companies and the media companies. The fact that a mass murderer was taking prescription drugs, is one of those things that will show up once in the newspapers, but is immediately and finally buried, and mum becomes the word.

There have been a thousand analyses of the killer in papers, of his history, his personality, his psychological problems; there have been a thousand demands for increased police powers; there have been a thousand calls for the outlawing of guns, and a general de-clawing of the People. But has anyone asked, how is it that society produces so many sick people?

Prescription anti-depressants are known to be a common cause of suicide; they are known to be a constant presence in senseless massacres. Surely the number of individual murders caused by these drugs must be many times greater than the number of massacres. And if there are so many suicides and murders, how many people taking pharmaceuticals must be gravely suffering, but have not quite yet arrived at the point of suicide or murder?

This epidemic of drug use, this deliberate poisoning of the bodies and minds of the American people, this deliberate, and thus far largely successful, did-empowerment of the American people, must stop. It is our purpose to reveal this truth to the American people, so that we may once again live in a sane and healthy society and the tragic deaths of so many good people in this State shall not have been in vain.
