dr kola kolawole, male psychiatrist from Hamilton Ontario had been convicted of second degree felony, forcible sexual abuse, and third degree felony forcible sodomy molestation of three juvenile patients at the ontario facility where he worked and sexual assault of a highschool girl in a park. He destroyed my daughters life, and my daughter constantly suffers and is haunted with mental health problems.
I’m dedicating this post to Pamela and her daughter.
Are you depressed?
Many people are. The lockdowns and fear mongering about Covid-19 caused a steep rise in the use of anti-depressants from 2019 to 2020. In fact in the USA 45,204,771 people took antidepressants in 2020.
It saddens me to see that the two groups under 26 years old both showed an increase of more that 40% in the use of antidepressants in 202o compared to 2019. These young people represent the future. They need to be emotionally strong and clear headed not addicted to a mind warping substance.
Some of these people may be Indigos who even before 2020 were having trouble coping. Excerpt from Awakening Child website.
Indigos are children that are born spiritually aware and are highly sensitive, empathic, and intuitive. Indigos are known to have highly developed senses such as acute hearing and eyesight, and sensitivities to smells. This can also develop into extreme sensitivities to foods, sounds, emotions, and chemicals which in turn can cause allergic responses. Anything that is inorganic is an insult to their nervous system.
Because Indigos are naturally intuitive they process information much differently than most humans. Instead of processing information linearly, they process information cyclically or multidimensionally. These beings will not read a book from beginning to end, instead they are able to scan large amounts of information and pick out what information is pertinent and discard the rest, often reading a page from the middle of a book, or even from the middle of a page.
Indigos are not concerned with anything that is not of interest to them, the minutia of conventional classroom learning is a nightmare for them. They think differently and have different neurology, therefore many are diagnosed as having disabilities such as ADD/ADHD, Autism, Aspergers, and Dyslexia. These children need to be supported and taught in ways that allow them to cultivate their creative abilities and immense potential.
Indigos are also highly telepathic, if they are exposed to energy fields that are not in alignment to their personal vibrations it can feel excruciating to them. Because they are so empathic, they may absorb the thoughts, feelings, and energies of the people around them which is severely painful and can make them physically ill. As adults, these sensitivities may lead to self-medicating with alcohol or drugs to cope with these intense energies.
And the market for antidepressants is expected to keep growing.
Global Antidepressants Market (2020 to 2030) – COVID-19 Implications and Growth
April 21, 2020 08:03 ET | Source: Research and Markets
Dublin, April 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Antidepressants Global Market Report 2020-30: Covid 19 Implications and Growth” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
The global antidepressants market is expected to grow from $14.3 billion in 2019 to about $28.6 billion in 2020 as mental health issues are expected to surge due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic making an impact on the global economy. The market is expected to stabilize and reach $19 billion at a CAGR of 7.4% through 2023.
The antidepressants market has also surged during the covid-19 outbreak. The increasing number of cases and fatalities is affecting the mental health by elevating anxiety worldwide. People who are already living with mental health problems are experiencing increased stress levels over the Covid-19 outbreak. This has triggered the demand for antidepressant drugs.
In 2012, Dr. James Davies who holds a PhD in medical and social anthropology from Oxford published the book, Cracked The Unhappy Truth About Psychiatry. This book is well written and well researched. Davies lists in the appendix the 219 studies that influenced his opinions. I discovered his book because of a video he released two years ago in which he quotes extensively from his book. The timing of the release of this video validates my theory that we are in a time of maximum disclosure when the truth can no longer be hidden, a time when the public is ready to hear the truth.
Dr. James Davies interviewed people who did research on the effectiveness of psychiatric drugs or participated in the writing of the DSM. What he found out is astonishing.
Are anti-depressants the best way to treat depression?
This chart represents the results of the Kirsch-Sapirstein second meta-analysis study done by Professor Irving Kirsch, who was an associate director at Harvard Medical School and Guy Sapirstein, a graduate student. This meta-analysis included all the published studies and the unpublished studies from pharmaceutical companies that were accessed through the Freedom of Information Act.
The Hamilton Scale was used in all the studies considered in the meta-analysis study. This is a scale that runs from 0 to 51, and the task is to work out where you sit on this scale. Your doctor explains that all the trial researcher will do to work out where you sit is ask you a number of questions about yourself, such as whether you are sleeping well, whether you have an appetite, whether you are suffering from negative thoughts, and so on. You’ll then be given points for each of the answers you give.
On a scale of 51 in improvement between placebo (sugar pill) and antidepressant groups is only about 0.4 points, which led Kirsch to state, “antidepressants did not work moderately better than placebos; they worked almost no better at all.”

The DSM Medicalized Normal Behavior Which Caused the Over Prescribing of Psychiatric Drugs.
Medicalization is the process by which more and more of our human characteristics are seen as needing medical explanation and treatment. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is the main cause of medicalization. This year is the 70th anniversary of the creation of the first DSM which is sometimes referred to as the psychiatrist’s bible. The first edition was published by the American Psychiatric Association in 1952 and contained 102 mental health disorders. The original DSM has been revised and expanded six times. The latest edition published in May of 2013 contains 157 disorders.
Renee Garfinkle, a psychologist who participated in two DSM advisory committees, also confirmed the unscientific processes by which key decisions were made. “You must understand,” Garfinkle bluntly said to me, “what I saw happening on those committees wasn’t scientific. It more resembled a group of friends trying to decide where they want to go for dinner. One person says ‘I feel like Chinese food,’ and another person says ‘no, no, I’m really more in the mood for Indian food,’ and finally, after some discussion and collaborative give and take, they all decide to go have Italian.”
…Because the data and research were lacking to guide what disorders should be included and how they should be defined, all the task force could largely rely upon was professional agreement, consensus, and, in the event of continued disagreement, majority opinion attained by a vote.
The problem here is obvious. When a group of scientists sit down to decide whether something is true, they consult the evidence. If the evidence points to a clear conclusion, then irrespective of whether an individual scientist likes it, the result has to be accepted. That is how science works. The evidence is king. But when you don’t have evidence to decide the issue for you, people’s opinions, beliefs, hopes, and prejudices begin to intrude. In this instance, the scientist who desires a particular conclusion suddenly speaks up, argues loudly, and may, through sheer force of character, have his preferences accepted.
Davies, James. Cracked (p. 36). Pegasus Books
Viewed from this standpoint, the DSM committee did not actually discover mental disorders, at least not in any traditional scientific sense. Rather, they literally contrived them, by drawing lines between painful, emotional experiences. One disorder linked up fear, panic, and uncontrolled bouts of anxiety (this would be called Specific Phobia); another disorder linked up low self-esteem, lethargy, and a low capacity for pleasure (and this would be called Dysthymia).
Due to the widespread influence of the DSM disorders like Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Major Depression, Social Phobia, Borderline Personality Disorder, and so on, gradually became as real and solid in the popular imagination as tonsillitis, shingles, or the common cold yet none of these disorders have a biological basis.
The National Institute for Mental Health in the United States in 2012 claimed that about 26.2 percent of all American adults suffered from at least one of the DSM disorders, a figure made more startling when in the 1950s it was more like one in a hundred, and at the beginning of the twentieth century a meager one in a thousand.
Davies, James. Cracked (p. 189). Pegasus Books
As soon as you are assigned a diagnosis of “depression” or “anxiety disorder” or “attention deficit disorder”… From then on it is harder to think of yourself as a healthy participant in normal life, or as a person in control of your own fate. You have a psychiatric condition that has seized control, that has set you apart, and that has made you dependent upon psychiatric authority.
Davies, James. Cracked (p. 189).
One in five Americans is taking a psychiatric drug, including millions of children. Pharmaceutical companies have over-hyped the benefits of these drugs while hiding the risks and severe side effects including physiological dependence. The movie, Medicating Normal explores what happens when for profit medicine intersects with human beings in distress.
The DSM has caused Three False Epidemics in Psychiatry
“We added a Bipolar II [this is for individuals who have manic episodes, who also might have a bipolar tendency]. We also added Asperger’s disorder [this was to cover people who didn’t have full-blown autism but who had considerable problems with autistic-like symptoms] and finally we added ADHD [for people who had attention issues coupled with hyperactivity]. And, well, these decisions helped promote three false epidemics in psychiatry.”
“We now have a rate of autism that is twenty times what it was fifteen years ago. By adding Bipolar II, we also doubled the ratio of bipolar verses unipolar depression, and that’s resulted in lots more use of antipsychotic and mood-stabilizer drugs. We also have rates of ADHD that have tripled, partly because new drug treatments were released that were aggressively marketed. So every decision you make has a tradeoff, and you can’t assume the way you write the DSM will be the way it’ll be used. There will be so many pressures to use it in ways that will increase drug sales, increase school services, increase disability services, and so forth.”
Dr. Allen France, head of the task force for DSM 4 quoted in Cracked by James Davies.
Considering how mental disorders are made up for the DSM and the damaging effect of being diagnosed with a disorder I agree totally with the following song.

So a sugar pill will help you as much as an antidepressant if you think it’s a drug. But what do the millions of people who take antidepressants experience? Does their personality change?
A recent study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry by a team of researchers from Oxford University strongly confirms the view that most psychoactive effects are neither useful nor beneficial. To reach this conclusion, the researchers assessed thirty-eight patients who had taken SSRI antidepressants for periods between three and forty-eight months (the median length being twenty-three months). The researchers then undertook in-depth interviews with all of the patients to find out how the pills affected them. The results they uncovered are so at odds with the modern myth of the “happy pill” that it is worth paraphrasing them almost in full:
• Most participants described a general reduction in the intensity of all the emotions that they experienced, using words like “dulled,” “numbed,” “flattened,” or completely “blocked” to capture how they felt.
• A few participants described feeling no emotions at all, while others reported their emotional experience had become more “cognitive” or “intellectual.”
• A few participants described how the emotions that were at times present seemed “unreal,” “fake,” or “artificial.” And almost all participants, paradoxically, described a reduction in their positive emotions, including a reduction in emotions like happiness, enjoyment, excitement, anticipation, passion, love, affection, and enthusiasm.
• Most participants also described feeling emotionally detached or disconnected from their surroundings. Most also described this detachment as extending to a detachment from other people. Specifically, they felt reduced sympathy and empathy, and felt detached during social interactions. Many participants also described an emotional detachment from their friends and family, including their partners or children.
• Almost all participants described not caring about things that used to matter to them. They cared less about themselves, about other people, and about the consequences of their actions. Not caring could have both helpful and unhelpful consequences: it could reduce the sense of pressure and stress, but it could also increase the likelihood that important tasks were neglected.
• Many participants described a general feeling of indifference to things in life that used to matter to them. Some felt they just did not care as much about the consequences to themselves of their behavior. A few participants went further, mentioning thoughts of self-harm or suicide that they related to their emotional detachment and numbness. One participant had started to self-harm in an effort to feel emotion. Many participants reported not caring as much about others, being less sensitive or courteous toward other people, having reduced concern for others’ feelings, and reduced concern about other people’s opinions of them. Some participants described being less concerned or even unable to care about responsibilities in their everyday lives.
• All participants experienced a reduction of intensity or frequency of negative emotions. Most considered that at some stage the reduction in negative emotions was beneficial to them, bringing relief from distressing negative emotions like emotional distress, anger, irritability, aggression, anxiety, worry, or fear. Although this reduction was usually at some stage a relief, many participants also reported it impaired their quality of life. Participants described the need to be able to feel negative emotions when appropriate, such as grief or concern. Some were unable to respond with negative emotions, such as being unable to cry when this would have been appropriate or respond appropriately to bad news.
• Some participants felt their personality had changed in some way. They felt they were not the person that they used to be. Participants also reported that specific aspects of their personality and, in particular, emotional aspects had been changed or lost. Some participants believed that at times their antidepressant had made them behave out of character. One participant believed that the medication had changed their personality permanently, having a lasting effect beyond finishing their medication.

The inability to feel negative or positive emotions is a type of insanity. A disconnection with your soul which is often referred to as your inner child. What if your soul is telling you through the emotion of dislike or discontentment that it’s time to leave your job or your narcissistic partner and instead of paying attention to this message you sedate yourself? How can you hope to be happy?
There are two movies that show us what it would be like to live in a society where everyone is medicated to the max. Brave New World and Equilibrium. Brave New World based on the novel by Aldous Huxley depicts a society where everyone believes they are free and are conditioned to be perpetually “happy” with the use of a drug known as “soma.” All births are test-tube and “pre-conditioned” and “pre-ordained” to a specific class. Henry T. Ford is considered to be God in this new society. I highly recommend Equilibrium(2013) starring Christian Bale which has far out fight scenes as good as those on the Matrix movies. In an oppressive future where all forms of feeling are illegal, a man in charge of enforcing the law rises to overthrow the system and state.
The biggest trick Big Pharma has used is to perpetuate the myth that a mental illness is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain which only can be managed but never cured by a drug.
The Tricks Big Pharma Uses to Promote Their Products
The ‘Chemical Imbalance’ Myth
8,734 views Mar 15, 2018
Certainly the DSM has played a major role in the massive surge in mental disorders and the pharmaceutical companies have promoted the classification of normal behaviors as mental disorders in order to sell more drugs but they have a large bag of other tricks.
Big Pharma knows how to increase the expectation that a drug will have the effect they claim it will. They know that the color of the pill, if it has a brand name on it, if it has been advertised on TV and if it is prescribed a trusted physician all contribute to the placebo effect. Since it has been proven that an expensive drug is no better than a sugar pill Big Pharma relies on these tricks to make a person expect positive results from their drugs so that they will want to try them and to continue to take them.
Repackaging is a trick they use to sell an old product to a new market under a different name. In DSM 4 Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) was first presented as if it were an exaggerated form of PMT—premenstrual tension. In the early 2000’s many women were diagnosed with PMDD. Eli Lilly came up with a chemical solution called Sarafem. Years later it was discovered that another Eli Lilly product, Prozac that they had sold before Sarafem had exactly the same chemicals as Sarafem. They just changed the color of the pills. Prozac is green and white, while Sarafem is pink and lavender.
Cherry Picking, Salomi Slicing and buying a good reputation
Cherry picking is the name given to the process that’s in common use by Big Pharma in which only some the the data from clinical trails are picked for publication and the rest ignored.
Salami slicing is where a company publishes the positive studies many times over in different forms and locations which gives the false impression that many studies have been conducted all showing positive results when all the positive studies stem from one data set.
Drug companies buy advertising and reprints of articles from medical journals so none of them dare to question the validity of a study. Doctors are influenced by a reprint sent to them by a drug company because it was published in a so called “reputable” medical journal.
Big Parma donates millions to universities to do research that promotes their products.
Most of the people who were on the committee that made DSM 5 owned shares in a pharmaceutical company. Most of the people who work for the FDA either were formerly employed by or owned shares in a drug company.
Big Pharma frequently pays psychiatrists to give lectures or write articles to endorse their products. A study revealed that psychaitrists who received at least $4,500 in lecture fees from the makers of the new generation of antipsychotic drugs wrote three times as many prescriptions to children for the drugs than psychiatrists who received less money or no money.
Do you think that your doctor is on the take? You can find out for sure by going to this website that will tell you if your doctor is accepting bribes.
This tool will show you if your doctor is accepting Big Pharma bribes
by Caitlyn McClure 5 years ago
ProPublica, the excellent independent investigative journalism outlet, has been publishing data on pharma bribes and conflicts of interest in medicine since 2010. And they’ve turned up a lot of dirt. But this one is a doozy:
ProPublica analysis has shown that most U.S. doctors are taking payments from either drug corporations, medical device corporations, or both. More importantly, the data shows that doctors who receive payments are much more likely to prescribe a higher percentage of brand-name drugs than their colleagues who don’t take any money at all.
Now you can easily look up your doctor or hospital to find out if they’re part of this corrupt system. Just head over to the Dollars for Docs tool and get searching!
(And keep in mind that this is just the data that these corporations are forced to disclose under the Physician Payments Sunshine Act [another part of that pesky Obamacare that Republicans hate so much]. It doesn’t include research payments or physicians’ stocks in these corporations.)
Big Pharma Exploits the Highly Hierarchical Nature of the Medical Profession.
Junior doctors defer to registrars, who defer to consultants who bow to more senior consultants. So drug companies convert those at the top to spread the message down the chain to the medical students, primary care givers most importantly the GPs who are the ones who write the most prescriptions for antidepressants.
As Kimberly Elliott, who handled Key Opinion Leaders for a number of pharmaceutical companies, put it: “Key opinion leaders were salespeople for us, and we would routinely measure the return on our investment by rating prescriptions before and after their presentations.” She continued, “If that speaker didn’t make the impact the company was looking for, then you wouldn’t invite them back.”
Davies, James. Cracked (p. 213)
On this planet we find hierarchy everywhere. In finance, government, the judiciary, education, in large companies and even in religion. This is how the few rule the many.
Have these tricks worked? You bet they have! The global pharmaceutical market made $1.2 trillion in 2018.

Is it dangerous to see a Psychiatrist?
Psychiatric Drug Facts with Peter R. Breggin M.D.
The Most Dangerous Thing You Will Ever Do
The most dangerous thing you will ever do is see a psychiatrist.
Why? Because there is a near certainty you will be given a neurotoxic psychiatric drug or even electroshock; and because the information given to you will totally mislead you about your real problems and how to overcome them. Without realizing what is happening, you will be seriously at risk of becoming a lifelong prisoner of psychiatric drugs and the demoralizing misinformation provided by your doctor.
I am a psychiatrist and I have been watching my profession deteriorate for many decades. This is my most direct written statement about the dangers of stepping inside a modern psychiatrist’s office. My conclusions are the culmination of mountains of research authored by me and by an increasing number of other psychiatrists, scientists and journalists.1
How Psychiatric Drugs Take Your Mind Prisoner
When the brain is harmed by almost any widespread intrusion—multiple concussions and traumatic brain injury (TBI), severe infections (encephalitis), lightning strikes or electroshock treatment, and psychiatric drugs—the ultimate result is generalized harm to mental functioning. These global injuries always include harm to the frontal lobes, the seat of consciousness, rationality, the ability to love and all our other highest human capacities.
Injury to the frontal lobes, whose functions also include self-insight or self-awareness, renders victims unable to personally assess the degree of harm being done to them. I have called this effect medication spellbinding—how psychiatric drugs render us unable to fully grasp the harm they are doing to us.2
All psychiatric drugs are potent neurotoxins that so disrupt higher mental functioning and emotional regulation that people taking them almost never have adequate awareness of how much harm the drugs are doing to their body, brain and mind, their energy and will power, and their overall quality of life.
Practicing psychiatry and psychotherapy in a university town, I have frequently found these impairments in otherwise very high functioning people. College and graduate students with high academic achievements, university professors, mathematicians, and scientists often barely suspect, or do not suspect at all, that they are not nearly functioning at their best. Their neurotoxins (erroneously called antidepressants, stimulants, antianxiety drugs, mood stabilizers or antipsychotic drugs) are wearing down their cognitive abilities, motivation, and emotional sensitivity.
With help they can identify the decline in their overall performance and quality of life; and if they have not been bombarded with multiple drugs for years at a time, they typically achieve complete recovery after withdrawing from the drugs. When drug-free, they can see the improvement in their mental functioning and quality of life. Tragically, this is not so for tens of millions of people who never realize how they are being harmed by their psychiatric drugs.
Withdrawal Symptoms Make Escape from the Drugs Extremely Difficult
When stopping psychiatric drugs on their own, people can experience dangerous, frightening withdrawal symptoms, such as anxiety, agitation, depression and suicidal feelings, mistakenly leading them to believe that they need the drugs to stay sane.3
Misled by their doctors in countless ways, believing they need medical help, unaware of the dangers in abruptly stopping the drugs, convinced they are “mentally ill” when they are mentally impaired by neurotoxins—these unfortunate people understandably cannot break free of the psychiatric prison system in which they are unwittingly trapped.
The more drugs these victims are prescribed, the more difficult it becomes for them to appreciate what is happening to them or to muster the will power to protest. Even though they are slurring their words and walking like zombies, some will cling to their medication. Their brains are too impaired by neurotoxins for them to know what it is happening to them and they feel too intimidated to try living without the very chemicals that are destroying them.
Meanwhile, psychiatrists will frequently cover up what is happening by telling their patients and their families that the drugs are needed and that the obvious symptoms of brain injury are instead products of the patient’s supposed mental illness. In my experience, the worst psychiatrists are often the most prestigious with positions at places like the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and at university medical schools. Why? Because they are among the most on the take from the drug companies.
Psychiatry Itself Is a Prisoner of Sorts
Psychiatry itself has become a willing, thriving prisoner of the pharmaceutical empire. Along with the fallacies of its medical orientation and medical treatments, being indentured to the drug companies has caused much of psychiatry’s drastic decline in recent decades.4
To begin remedying the prevalent drug-company driven psychopharmacology, I have offered what I call “principles of rational psychopharmacology.”5 It is based on the brain-disabling principle,6 that all psychoactive substances, including psychiatric drugs, can only produce their sought-after effects by harming the function of the brain and mind, usually by blunting emotional responsiveness and engagement with life. The same, of course, is true of shock treatment.
Are Psychiatrists More Informed than Primary Care Physicians?
Since most psychiatric drugs are prescribed by primary care doctors and other non-psychiatrists—including family docs, internists, Ob-Gyns, pediatricians and nurse practitioners—some people are more wary of them than they are of psychiatrists. They think the psychiatrists know more about the drugs and will prescribe them more safely. This commonly held belief is dangerously false.
As a group, psychiatrists are by far the most arrogant and cavalier prescribers in the field of medicine. They commonly do things that your family doctor would feel is beyond his or her skill level and even unwise, such as starting patients on several drugs at once, giving multiple drugs at maximum doses or higher, changing and stopping drugs without a taper, and getting very angry when their patients complain or want help in lowering doses or getting off the drugs.
Less commonly, but at least as harrowing, many psychiatrists still refer people for electroshock or administer it themselves at the local psychiatric unit, where shock treatment makes tons of easy money for the shock doc, the anesthesiologist, and the hospital.
This is no exaggeration. Going to a psychiatrist is the most dangerous thing most people will ever routinely do. And as a psychiatrist, I advise against it, unless you have proof positive that the psychiatrist will talk with you instead of drugging or shocking you—which is highly unlikely.
Most psychiatrists have not been adequately trained and have little interest in talking with people about their lives and how to live more effectively and happily. They do not know how to do psychotherapy and are constitutionally unsuited for it because of their authoritarianism and their lack of empathy. In addition, they have false beliefs about genetic and biological causes, and the usefulness of drugs, that trash their own brains and undermine their patient’s self-confidence, self-reliance and understanding of their problems.
Psychiatrists Are Extremely Ignorant About Life
Few psychiatrists have any awareness that a positive relationship is the safest and most effective way of helping someone who is suffering emotionally, regardless of the severity of their psychiatric diagnosis. For anyone to genuinely help another human being with emotional problems or “psychiatric disorders,” they must first understand the power of empathy and love. They must understand and address the trauma and neglect in childhood that underlies so much seemingly intractable adult suffering and incapacity. They must understand how social factors impact the experiences of children and adults, and how difficult it can then be to create egalitarian and loving relationships between men and women.
In other words, to know what they were doing, psychiatrists would need a broad education, an understanding of child development and attachment psychology, insights into family life and society, an understanding of abuse and trauma, and other knowledge of why and how people need help with their emotional and psychological life, sometimes falling into despair or psychosis. Almost none of this is taught in a college premedical curriculum, medical school, and psychiatric residency—making many psychiatrists less informed about life than most of their patients who have some curiosity about psychology and who have not been rigorously indoctrinated and inducted into the inner sanctum of biological psychiatry.
Because they know so little and have so little to offer, psychiatrists must dumb down and misguide both themselves and their patients about what really makes people suffer and what really helps them recover and lead good lives. Instead of wisdom and understanding they rely on cookie-cutter diagnoses and drugs. The great majority of psychiatrists know no other way to make a living than to act as medication dispensing machines, cramming multiple patients into an hour for “med checks,” and collecting a steady stream of reimbursements from the insurance companies and government programs.
In addition to their ignorance, there is another powerful reason why psychiatrists know so little about their patients and what they need. People who control and abuse other people are always unwilling to have understanding, empathy and concern for them. That was nowhere more grossly obvious than in psychiatry’s organized, systematic murder of tens of thousands of mental patients in Germany in what has been called “the entering wedge” or prototype for the Holocaust.7 Even if today’s psychiatrists were caring and empathic in their youth, their years of training and the abuse they have heaped on their patients has rendered them incapable of offering informed, empathic, caring and even loving human services.
How Shock Doctors Make Escape Totally Impossible
Even when the brains and minds of patients are being obliterated by continuous electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), usually along with multiple drugs, shock doctors regularly lie by saying that the massive memory loss and cognitive dysfunction is a result of their “mental illness.”8 The patients become so befuddled and helpless that it usually requires an outraged family member to intervene to stop the electroshock and the drugs.
As a medical expert against psychiatrists who perform ECT, I have seen this dismaying situation documented many times in medical records and in the depositions of the doctors. Fortunately, my scientific report in a 2018 case against a shock manufacturer recently contributed to forcing a settlement and an acknowledgment from the drug manufacturer that ECT can cause brain damage and widespread memory loss.9 But we have a long way to go before stopping this atrocity.
The Risk of Getting Physically Locked Up
Everywhere in America, and probably elsewhere in a world, any psychiatrist on an emergency basis can fill out a form that will require police authorities to lock you up.10 Sometimes it may require a second professional signature as well, but that is rarely hard to find. The technical basis for this unconstitutional and inhumane process is usually that the psychiatrist guesses that you are a “danger to self or others,” although there is no evidence that psychiatrists are particularly good at making this guess.
Once you are locked up, you become fair game for being involuntary committed by a rubber-stamp judge for a much longer time. The patient/defendants are almost always too drugged and too distressed to defend themselves or to look normal when being evaluated in these hearings, which are probably the nearest thing to a genuine kangaroo court in the Western World.11
Psychiatry Is an Alternative Reality
Psychiatry has created an alternative reality or extreme state for itself,12 based on drug company marketing slogans, false science, fake medicine, and fabricated claims of superior knowledge. Psychiatry has created for itself an alternative reality or extreme state that is more bizarre and unreal than those of most of the patients they claim to help. In psychiatry’s worldview, people are nearly inanimate and devoid all higher human qualities—at least when in respect to why they are unhappy or suffering. Instead of being understood as struggling human beings, in essence no different than any other person trying to make their way through life, psychiatrists see their “patients” as afflicted by diseases comparable to malignancies of the brain that need to be wiped out or subdued.
Like cancer patients being given highly toxic drugs or radiation, the “collateral damage” is largely ignored or denied in the effort to wipe out the malignancy and to maintain the doctor’s status. Unlike cancer patients, the neurotoxins are aimed at and inflicted upon entirely normal brain tissue, making it even harder for people who are already having a difficult time struggling to manage their lives.
It is a profoundly tragic irony: The personal realities of most people who see psychiatrists are not nearly as alternative, extreme or dangerous to others as the alternative realities of the vast majority of psychiatrists who live within a web of self-deceptions to justify poisoning and shocking the brains of the people who come to them for help.
Comparing the Good and the Bad
On February 19, 2020 Mary Neal Vieten, PhD, retired Navy Commander and founder and director of Warfighter Advance, was my guest on my weekly radio/TV hour. Warfighter Advance is the best program I have found for helping returning soldiers who are suffering from the emotional scars of war, along with the neurotoxic effects of multiple psychiatric drugs. Military doctors have given a dozen or more psychiatric drugs at a time to many of these soldiers and yet Warfighter Advance training and education helps almost every single one of them leave their drugs behind while building better lives for themselves.
With intensive seminars, including a primary role for one of my books,13 Commander Vieten educates her military colleagues about the dangers of psychiatric drugs and how to safely withdraw from them. Her Warfighter Advance program also teaches its clients how medical concepts like “mental illness” and biochemical imbalances are both false and demoralizing.
Her stunning work and her presentation on my radio/TV hour inspired me to say it outright on the air: As a group, psychiatrists are the most stupid people on Earth about human beings. They have to be stupid about people in order to go on harming them without experiencing guilt, shame and anxiety over what they do.
Where and How to Get Help
If you feel in need of help for a mental health or psychological problem, one of the most dangerous things you could ever do is to choose to see a psychiatrist. If you want professional help, look for non-medical professionals, such as clinical social workers, clinical psychologists, marriage and family therapists, or mental health counselors. Even a good coach without professional credentials is likely to be safer and more helpful than a psychiatrist.
Read what therapists say about themselves on their Internet websites or on platforms that advertise therapists. Ask yourself, “Does this person seem kind and thoughtful, someone who will be a caring and empathic listener and possess wisdom and experience to share?”
Vet your potential therapists before meeting them by asking questions on the phone before the first visit. Hearing their responses will be better than emailing or texting. Especially ask for a guarantee not to be pushed to take medications or to see a psychiatrist. That may weed out the first few professionals you call—and that’s the way it should be.
Finding a good therapist can be as difficult as finding a good friend, so do not be afraid to shop. Always reserve your right to reject someone who does not seem like a good fit for you or fails to be respectful, understanding and helpful on the first visit. Yes, cancel your second appointment if you have doubts.
I believe that a good therapist should be so helpful on the first visit that you feel eager to return for the next session and that you should be drug-free enough to enjoy and benefit from the help.
Here is a sample of the many professional and scientific books that are deeply critical of psychiatry:

Wow! If you go to see a psychiatrist you may be given a prescription for an addictive drug or a brain damaging ECT or even be ordered to be locked up by someone who is actually more insane than you are! Here’s a great example of someone being locked up against their will.

A rally was held (Dec.12/21) for Dr. Mel Bruchet, who was wrongly imprisoned in the psyche ward at Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver on Wednesday, December 8, 2021. In this video, Svetlana of Ezra Wellness and Dr. Daniel Nagase begin the rally.
Breggin said “Even if today’s psychiatrists were caring and empathic in their youth, their years of training and the abuse they have heaped on their patients has rendered them incapable of offering informed, empathic, caring and even loving human services.”
I see a similarity between the steps of Freemasonry and the years of training that a psychiatrist goes through. In both cases the lure of a large income and better social status motivates a person to go through a process that gradually closes down their heart centre. They lose the ability to be empathic and this opens them up to demonic possession.
Maybe you were thinking that the title of this post, “Do Psychiatric Drugs Cause Insanity?” was just click bait. Not so, my friend. Dr. Peter Breggin answers my outrageous question in this video.
Dr. Peter Breggin has been referred to as the “conscience of psychiatry” is a brave, truth teller who says that these drugs cause an imbalance of chemicals in the brain and what psychiatrists call the symptoms of the mental illness are actually caused by the medication. He slams most psychiatrists as nothing more that salespeople for Big Pharma and describes psychiatric drugs as neurotoxins. Breggin has fought against the use lobotamies and ECTs and advocades for therapies that focus more on care, love and empathy. For those people who now want to get off their medication check out Breggin’s book, Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal The Guide for Therapists, Patients and their Families or his less expensive version called, Medication Madness.
Why Psychiatric Drugs Are Killing Your Brain And How To Get Out Of The Bind With Dr. Peter Breggin
As a final testimony to the fact that psychiatric drugs can cause insanity here’s an article that connects school violence with the use of psychiatric drugs. You may ask why the main stream media has not revealed this connection. Of course it’s because Big Pharma controls the media by providing millions of dollars of advertising.
37 School Shooters/School Related Violence Committed By Those Under The Influence Of Psychiatric Drugs
Fact: At least 37 school shootings and/or school-related acts of violence have been committed by those taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs resulting in 175 wounded and 82 killed (in other school shootings, information about their drug use was never made public—neither confirming or refuting if they were under the influence of prescribed drugs). The most important fact about this list, is that these are only cases where the information about their psychiatric drug use was made public. (See full list below)
The below list includes individuals documented to have been under the influence of psychiatric drugs and not only includes mass shootings, but the use of knives, swords and bombs. 27 international drug regulatory agency warnings cite side effects including mania, violence, psychosis and even homicidal ideation.

Some videos on the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) site that you may be interested in are listed below. However I have to warn you that this site is funded by Scientology and just as psychiatric drugs are not the answer to emotional or mental problems neither is Scientology in my opinion. I have a feeling that they created this site to appear to do a community service and discredit the competition. Kinda like the kettle calling the pot black. Here’s Chris Shelton’s answer to the Question on Quora “Is Scientology really that bad?”
Chris Shelton, Ex-Scientologist and Sea Org member of 27 years.
Answered 3 years ago · Author has 83 answers and 620.8K answer views
I was involved with Scientology professionally for 25 years. By that, I mean I worked for the organization, eventually at its highest levels in the Sea Organization. I can therefore answer with an unqualified “Yes.”
In fact, I will go one further and tell you what we in the ex-community often have good reason to say: “Scientology is always worse than you think.”
The human rights abuses, covered up pedophilia, human trafficking and slave labor in Scientology are really as bad as you have probably already heard. I saw and/or was exposed to quite a bit of this when I was there. I’ve learned even more since I left.
Scientology is not something to be curious about. It is something to run away from as fast as you can.
Nevertheless I think there is a lot of truth in the videos on the CCHR site. Here are links to three of the videos
Psychiatric Rape: Assaulting Women and Children
A woman is statistically at greater risk of being raped while on a psychiatrist’s couch than while jogging alone at night through a city park. In a British study of therapist-patient sexual contact among psychologists, 25 percent reported having treated a patient who had been sexually involved with another therapist.
In this video we learn that what Dr Kola Kolawole did to Pamela’s daughter is not a rare or isolated case. Studies have revealed that at least 10% of psychiatrists are guilty of some form of patient sexual abuse.
Child Drugging: Psychiatry Destroying Lives
Contrary to psychiatric opinion, children are not “experimental animals.” They are human beings who have every right to expect protection, care, love and the chance to reach their full potential in life. A chance denied them by psychiatry’s labels and chemical straitjackets.
The three hour documentary “The Marketing of Madness” covers most of the points I have made in this post. If you have a friend or a relative that needs this information but wouldn’t be interested in reading this entire post just send them the link to this video. (Along with a warning about Scientology)
Also on the CCHR site is this valuable information.
The Right To Be Informed
In general medicine the standard for informed consent includes communicating the nature of the diagnoses, the purpose of a proposed treatment or procedure, the risks and benefits of the proposed treatment, and informing the patient of alternative treatments so he can make an informed, educated choice. Psychiatrists routinely do not inform patients of non-drug treatments, nor do they conduct thorough medical examinations to ensure that a person’s problem does not stem from an untreated medical condition that is manifesting as a “psychiatric” symptom. They do not accurately inform patients of the nature of the diagnoses, which would require informing the patient that psychiatric diagnoses are completely subjective (based on behaviors only) and have no scientific/medical validity (no X-rays, brain scans, chemical imbalance tests to prove anyone has a mental disorder).
All patients should have what is called a “differential diagnosis.” The doctor obtains a thorough history and conducts a complete physical exam, rules out all the possible problems that might cause a set of symptoms and explains any possible side effects of the recommended treatments.
There are numerous alternatives to psychiatric diagnoses and treatment, including standard medical care that does not require a stigmatizing and subjective psychiatric label or a mind-altering drug. Governments should endorse and fund non-drug treatments as alternatives to dangerous drugs that have been proven no more effective than placebo, and more dangerous than most street drugs. Although CCHR International does not condone or promote any specific practitioner, medical organization, practice or group, we have found the below resources to be helpful for individuals looking for more information on the following topics:

Alternatives to Psychiatric Drugs
I recently read Running on Empty Overcome Your Childhood Emotional Neglect by Dr. Jonice Webb. I did the CEN questionnaire and found that I am still influenced by childhood emotional neglect.(CEN) It’s not something that’s easy to remember since it’s the absence of something. My parents were well meaning and provided for my physical needs but were emotionally unavailable, there wasn’t an emotional connection. As a result of CEN I grew up not understanding or being able to express my feelings. These excerpts from Dr. Webb’s site describe what I experienced.
Children who are emotionally neglected then grow up to have a particular set of struggles. Because their emotions were not validated as children, they may have difficulty knowing and trusting their own emotions as adults.
They may have difficulty understanding their own feelings, as well as others’. Because an important part of themselves (their emotional self) has been denied, they may find themselves feeling disconnected, unfulfilled or empty. They may have difficulty trusting or relying upon others. Many describe feeling that they are different from other people; like something is wrong with them, but they’re not sure what it is…
The way you are treated emotionally by your parents determines how you will treat yourself as an adult. This has been proven over and over again in study after study.
Emotion is an undeniable part of your biology. If you ignore your emotions, you will feel ignored on some level, no matter how much care you give yourself in other ways.
Emotion is the substance of all relationships. If you are not attending to your emotions, you are by-passing a vital source of connection and joy.
Emotional Intelligence has been proven to be more valuable to success in life and work than general intelligence. It’s extremely vital that you know how to name, use and manage emotion, as well as how to deal with it in others.
Anyone who is experiencing anxiety or depression should take the CEN questionnaire. If you find that you have CEN there are exercises in the book I mentioned and in her other book, Running on Empty No More.
She also hosts a online class to heal from CEN. You can find the questionniare and information about her classes on her website.
Homeopathic medicines have been used for more than 240 years.
Homeopathy was founded by Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), who grew up in Meissen in Germany, received his medical degree in Erlangen in 1779, and died a millionaire in Paris in 1843…
Hahnemann believed that if a patient had an illness, it could be cured by giving a medicine which, if given to a healthy person, would produce similar symptoms of that same illness but to a slighter degree. Thus, if a patient was suffering from severe nausea, he was given a medicine which in a healthy person would provoke mild nausea. By a process he called ‘proving’, Hahnemann claimed to be able to compile a selection of appropriate remedies. This led to his famous aphorism, ‘like cures like’, which is often called the ‘principle of similars’; and he cited Jenner’s use of cowpox vaccination to prevent smallpox as an example.
The differences between orthodox medicine and homeopathy could hardly be more vivid. From its beginning homeopathy always began with a long consultation, lasting at least an hour, in which all aspects of the patient’s illness and life were discussed—homeopaths like to stress that they practise ‘holistic medicine’—and the appropriate treatment chosen.
In 1911 the three schools of healing, allopathic medicine, chiropractic and homepathic were aproximately equal in number. Then Rockefeller decide to invest in allopathic medicine so his drug company could make more money. He also paid people to discredit the other forms of healing by denouncing them as “quackery.”

A New Defination of Sanity
Let’s consider the current legal defination of sanity.
Legal Definition of Sanity from The Free Dictionary by Farlex
Reasonable understanding; sound mind; possessing mental faculties that are capable of distinguishing right from wrong so as to bear legal responsibility for one’s actions.
Obviously MDs and psychiatrists who prescribe drugs that are addictive neurotoxins that cause a chemical imbalance in the brain are not capable of distinguishing right from wrong so they are not sane. Remember that Dr. Breggin said that psychiatrists live in an alternate reality? So to say they are insane is not at all unrealistic.
Lisa Renee defines sanity in terms of coherence.
Thus, the natural goal of living energy or systems is to support the strengthening of Coherence within all of its subsystems, as this is important in sustaining the energetic support to the overall system, to ensure its survival and sanity. Sanity in this context is used to describe spiritually beneficial behaviors that support more energy becoming available for consciousness growth. The principles of Coherence apply to us personally, collectively and in every group, system or organization on this planet. To build energetic coherence within systems requires a Group Consciousness agreement, to support the goal of building these related positive qualities and spiritually beneficial energies that help further define and support the overall system.
These many different links of energetic correspondence interconnect through principles of Coherence to help unify all systems of energy. Thus, integrating and unifying energy within multiple groupings and layers of energetic fields describes the state of Coherence. The state of being coherent is formed by unifying the sum of the parts to be united, so they form a synthesized whole. Coherence directly corresponds to the process of leaving behind individualistic expressions of ego, while moving towards expressing group consciousness or unity consciousness.
This is how she defines insanity.
Insanity is a diseased mind (diseased or disconnected soul) which leads the being to choose to continually inflict destruction and harm to the self and others. If continual destructive abusive behavior is not stopped, it will damage the soul through fragmentation and genetic degradation.
Insanity is a way to define behaviors which create soul destruction, that action which ultimately disconnect the body/mind from the soul. When a being is soul disconnected they experience an unquenchable thirst of desire, black depression, pain and suffering at great levels.
Our emotions arise from our soul. If a psychiatric drug blunts our emotions this indicates we are disconnecting from our soul which provides the gateway to higher conscious and our God self. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that aliens are behind the research and development of psychiatric drugs that cause this disconnection.
Who is really sane? Children and animals certainly are.
Generally speaking children are loving and kind. A child wouldn’t give poison to anyone. Excerpts from a post by Stephanie Lofgren on the Energetic Synthesis site talks about why children don’t continue to be unconditionally loving when they become adults.
Children do not enter this world divisive and confrontative; they do as animals do, love unconditionally and live in the moment.
Anyone who has really observed a child or an animal can see and feel what is real, true and natural, after a time the child begins to ‘learn’ that only certain ways of being are acceptable, this then becomes reinforced through the school system, the system of University and College, and the working environment. Work hard, work longer for the good of the whole, and yet it is blatantly obvious that that does not apply to all.
There is a great deal of information available concerning a ‘global elite’ and references to a ‘secret government’ most often referred to as the Illuminati, and reference to extraterrestrials or aliens that occupy this planet and work with those in positions of perceived power, there is even a term for this ‘Exopolitics’.
The cruelty and confusion rife on this planet is not human, most people can see that decisions and actions make no apparent sense other than a justification to keep one side ‘safe’ at the expense of the other. So if it is not human where does this come from?
There are a very few people that write of off planet consciousness/species that controls those in positions of power on this planet, two such examples are David Icke and the late Carlos Castaneda. If much of what happens on this planet appears alien to the vast majority of humanity then perhaps it really is.
There is and has been for many thousands of years an alien agenda upon this planet to isolate for the purposes of ‘fallen races’ (please see ‘Hidden History of Humanity’ for context) this planet and humanity in order to sustain a group of beings that chose to alienate themselves from the natural sources of the ultimate God Source and the natural laws of the Universe exemplified in the Law of One as a template or blueprint for life on this planet and as universal or cosmic citizens.
It is appreciated that such a view goes very much against the established grain, but since the established grain of expert science, politics, allopathic health care, religion, and education have for so long failed to deliver a kinder and more loving world that human beings wish to experience then there is something standing in the way or blocking that natural human expression.
When researchers suggest that there is an agenda that does not have the good of humanity at heart there is most often disbelief that this could be so; empathic human beings try to imagine themselves in a so called privileged position and cannot conceive of wishing to be anything other than philanthropic or caring, finding creative solutions to entrenched difficulties. When this is blatantly not the case for those in these positions it is blamed upon incompetence or certain sections of society.
It takes quite a leap in consciousness to perceive what is taking place on this planet in terms of an ‘Alien Agenda’. It is so that there is an awakening, as people come to a realization that the systems humanity is deference to, although this has only ever been voluntary if we did not but realise, are grossly flawed, and a sadness and frustration comes in with a desire to take action to confront these apparent injustices. This though has occurred throughout many generations with little if any actual change and the Alien Agenda is more than capable of capturing movements and initiatives to create an even tighter prison, an illusion of freedom where none exists, only a larger field of containment. People become tired and discouraged and eventually either go back to their lives to keep their families safe, or to become wedded to a cause.
When one truly begins to explore and appreciate the lengths to which the Alien Agenda has permeated the structures on this planet, shocking though it may be, it begins to create a context in which to understand why there is so much pain and suffering here and it also allows us to have some compassion for those in apparent positions of power who are not wholly in control of their actions…
Negative Alien Agenda By Stephanie Lofgren
David Icke said, “They gave us their mind.”
They being the Reptilian invaders. The mind he refers to is the predatory mind. The “gotta get them before they get me”, “live and let die,” mentality that’s prevelant in the top eschelons of all apects of society. In this video Icke explains that a negative force has been manipulating perception with low vibration frequencies for a very long time.

If you doubt that the negative alien agenda, NAA exists just think about ritual satanic blood sacrifices, for about twenty seconds which is probably as long as you can stand to think about. Ritual satanic abuse involves the rape, torture and murder of a child. Followed by the drinking of the child’s blood. If you are thinking this is totally inhumane, you’re right. It’s so cruel and brutal that many people can’t believe it’s happening on this planet. The people who do this are possessed by a demon or an alien. Blood Sacrifices and killing rituals are also used to bind groups of souls to demonic entities and NAA entities, for collecting their energy source and to satiate blood lust.
Unfortunately almost everyone is possessed to some degree. Here’s the defination of possession from the Ascension Glossary.
Many unconscious human beings are totally unaware they are carrying dead energy, displaced entities, negative alien implants, unaware that they are soul disconnected and mind controlled to limit further consciousness expansion. In other terms, this is enslavement of the person without their consent. This is a form of possession and is the servitude or bondage to the imposter spirit. An imposter spirit can be Luciferian or Satanic spirits. This is how spiritual-energetic enslavement is manifested.
If this persists, combined with continued destructive behavior to the self and others that are repeated as life patterns, the person becomes sucked into a density of painfully low self-esteem, phobias, fears and addictions. Most of the time that will include layers of astral debris, displaced entities, impersonal elemental forces, and sometimes, includes full demonic possession. Being possessed does not generally mean you are levitating off the bed or acting “demonic”. There is absolutely no shame or guilt applied to this state unless the suffering person applies it from their own state of fragmented confusion. It is through the Possession of one’s body of which the suffering and pain is greatly increased, until this possession is removed and cleared from your person. There are a million different variations of possession possible; however, the only possibility to evict these possessions is to get clear within yourself, and learn that you have the power to heal yourself and claim your energetic sovereignty and freedom. (GSF Behavior) When one learns to create the space inside to communicate clearly and embody one’s spiritual source through cultivation of Virtues, one can begin the road to personal freedom and permanent release of suffering.
In other words we are all have possessions and have to resign from mind control and work restore the divine blueprint that the creator embedded deep in our souls to become fully human. Lisa has this to say about the disconnect between the mind and the soul.
The Controllers desperately want us to forget that we have Souls. Even though we exist in a material world filled to the brim with many different kinds of Souls, Spirits and Consciousness, they would like us to forget our Soul. Tyrants cannot control our mind as easily, if we know how to connect with our Soul.
Without understanding the worldwide agenda of trauma based mind control, we cannot understand our participation in the constructs put in place to keep it going. We become unknowing participants, in perpetuating these systems. It is difficult to witness how many people on the spiritual path, and how many practitioners and session providers, have this blind spot, and are unable to see the pervasiveness of this agenda.
To intentionally disconnect the existence of the mind from the existence of the soul is extremely destructive and damaging to all human beings. This fact is what contributes to the manifestation of disconnected and chronically miserable people who intentionally create harm without moral conscience.
Soul Disconnected people behave in a similar manner to artificial intelligence robots, as they are shaped by mass media to make decisions based on survival and selfish desires, with no authentic thoughts or emotional states of their own making. Disconnection conveniently pushes forward the basic agenda of Psychology to be very effective in furthering the Transhumanism agenda. Today, if people are unhappy and disconnected from their mind and soul, they are given a pharmaceutical drug to take control over their bio-neurological system functioning, which leads to lifelong pharmaceutical dependencies and addictions. Administering synthetic drugs to impair bio-neurological functioning of the brain further impairs and damages the Soul body, making it nearly impossible for a person to experience Soul embodiment or perceive the nature of their Soul.
Unfortunately when people are disconnected from their Soul through the rigid belief that they do not have one they will not gain higher consciousness or higher sensory perception ability. In order to perceive beyond the illusions of the material world or third dimension, we must connect with our spiritual bodies. When we are connected to higher dimensions of consciousness while in a body, we greatly increase our capacity to perceive the many layers of the spiritual-energetic nature of our reality. Thus, we know that informed consensus between the people on the earth does not yet exist. Earthlings have not been informed of the extraterrestrial nature of our real origins, or the regular intervention and control that is made in planetary affairs by the off-worlders. When the mass population is not informed of the truth in these matters, and is continually lied to in order to base their existence on piles of mass deception, there is no such thing as informed consensus.
Thus, Scientific Atheism has a critical relevance in shaping current systems that control beliefs in the mainstream areas of Science, Medicine and Education, which unequivocally affirm that we are alone in a cosmos devoid of supernatural realms.
The Anti-Soul Agenda seeks to create division through polarization of people’s thinking into holding staunch oppositions that they will defend at all costs in order to win their argument. Their assertion is that there is no credible scientific evidence for the existence of a God, Soul or Spirit. Yet, as we are well aware, there is no acknowledgement of the scientific evidence that validates and describes:
- Why and how we fall in love,
- How deep emotional bonds between people communicate telepathically,
- Human communication with many kinds of supernatural forces and entities,
- Transcendental, intuitive and empathic consciousness experiences of at-one-ment,
- Synchronistic events, which hold deep meaning in our lives for no apparent logical reason,
- Near Death Experiences (NDE’s), proof of Afterlife or Soul Projection into other dimensions.
Millions of people experience these kinds of consciousness experiences throughout the world every day, no matter what kind of belief system they have. Science as it is being controlled today, will never be capable of explaining these consciousness experiences related to our soul, with empirical data based on informed consensus. It is important to always remember, there are beautiful and kind people that can be found within every kind of scientific or medical field. We need to focus on our common humanitarian goals, and always be kind and Compassionate to the people involved, no matter what their belief system.
The ES Core Triad Practice to Release Fear Programs
In the Hieros Gamos section on the public Energetic Synthesis site there is the ES Core Triad Practice that I have been doing to rid myself of all fear programs and the results have been dramatic.
Step One is the declaration of intention to resolve the authority conflict between ego and God.
Step Two is about AM/PM practice of the 12D Shield to learn how to command personal space.
Step Three involves first identifying your fears and then asking your higher self or guides to remove these fear programs from the physical, the etheric body, the astral body, the soul, the cellular memory of the akashic record and all past, present, future and simultaneous lifetimes.
The Core Triad Practice and information about Hieros Gamos on this site is totally free with no strings attached.
Why do I want to clear myself of all fear programs? Why do I want to rid myself of all low frequency emotions like lust, rage, greed, envy, gluttony, laziness and pride? The short answer is because I want to experience more love.
LOVE as defined in the Ascension Glossary
The highest expression of Love when manifested into our material world is the same experience as attaining consciousness freedom and this is our highest purpose during the spiritual Ascension cycle that is happening on the planet. Love is the organizing, harmonizing and synchronizing force that exists throughout creation, and through its expression, Love is in perfect balance and harmony with what is, as it is. Love exists in alignment with truth, higher knowledge and the benevolent forces of light, in harmony with the natural laws, in harmony with the Universe.
To achieve and attain full consciousness freedom through the path of Love, which organically emits Truth in the Light, as this is one and the same path that leads us directly into building a relationship with our inherent divinity, and builds our direct relationship with God. In this comprehension, God is Love. When we declare ourselves as God beings, such as with the GSF decree, I AM God, I AM Sovereign, and I AM Free, we are ultimately stating that we are beings of Love.
When the forces of Love are fully present within a person, their heart center opens and flowers, propelling them naturally into the Ascension Stages, while developing their Consciousness through the process of learning or Gnosis, which is evolving them towards ultimately achieving spiritual freedom.
True Compassionate Love naturally brings Unity. The true love relationship is a relationship with our own inner being as practiced in the Law of One. When we embody Love we experience God. It is necessary to be in love and peace with oneself so that one can be able to love others without fear. The feeling of one’s own esteem, dignity, and self-respect opens the possibility to feeling selfless love towards others. This is the process we are learning and living through at the end of the Ascension Cycle in order to become Authentically Human again.
Take good care of yourselves and always choose Love.

Big Pharma says most adults have mental illness and require prescriptions for expensive pharmaceutical “cures”

(Natural News) To keep the gravy train moving, the pharmaceutical industry has teamed up with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to recommend that all adults in the United States under the age of 65 be screened for anxiety disorders.
A panel of “experts” commissioned by HHS says that all people in the U.S. regardless of age should also be evaluated for depression. The goal is to get as many Americans hooked on mental illness drugs as possible so Big Pharma executives can rake in the dough.
The so-called U.S. Preventative Services Task Force (PSTF) issued a guidance about all this earlier in the week, marking the first time such recommendations have ever been made officially. (Related: If you are depressed, why not try to change your diet instead of getting hooked on drugs?)
The PSTF also wants all children and adolescents – and heck, why not throw in babies as well? – to take pharmaceutical drugs for brain issues, many of which stem from the relentless tyranny imposed by the government throughout the Fauci Flu (covid) scamdemic.
“This is a really important step forward,” said American Psychological Association CEO Arthur C. Evans, who is simply overjoyed at the thought of all Americans being forced to live and breathe mind-altering drugs. “Screening for mental health conditions is critical to our ability to help people at the earliest possible moment.”
Thanks to Obamacare, health insurers could be forced to drug all Americans deemed to suffer from mental illness
According to The Wall Street Journal (WSJ), the task force behind these recommendations is comprised of 16 “independent volunteer experts,” all of whom just so happen to be pushing a pro-pharmaceutical agenda.
These so-called “experts” issue guidance protocols like this on a routine basis, and thanks to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, health insurers are typically required to cover all services associated with those recommendations.
In other words, if it becomes the case that all Americans are “screened” and deemed to be in desperate need of mind-altering pharmaceuticals, then health insurers will be forced to hand out those pharmaceuticals like candy, enriching Big Pharma to the hilt with billions of dollars in new profits.
That is what all of this is about, by the way: money. It is also about destroying what little humanity remains in the already deeply brainwashed “herd” of society, which is being systematically stripped of all cognition and the ability to think.
By getting all Americans hooked on brain-bending drugs from a laboratory, Big Pharma will not only profit but also gain even more control over people’s minds, and thus their thoughts and actions.
“Pro tip: Psychologists are the most crazy,” wrote a commenter, making an excellent point about how many who work in the field of mental health and social services are the most psychotic people in society who require the very interventions they try to push on others.
“Yup,” responded another. “They are subconsciously trying to cure themselves.”
“Of scabies and self-loathing,” responded yet another.
Someone else pointed out that anxiety and depression can actually be helpful.
“The former forces you to think your way out while the latter forces you to rethink how you got in the mess you are in, whether biochemically, neurologically, genetically, or even medicationally.”
“If you research, you’ll find ‘Action of this drug (antidepressant) on the brain is not known,’” this same person added. “Even if they prescribe an appropriate drug, they don’t even know what action it takes to have the sometimes desired effect.”

Dissent Into Madness: The Weaponization of Psychology
|MAR 13, 2023|
The Bad New Days
. . . It sure is! And I’m not just talking about psychiatric repression in some backward, evil dictatorship like Russia. (Although, to be sure, there is that, too.)
No, once again, it is the “liberal,” “enlightened,” “free and democratic” West that is leading the way in weaponizing psychiatry against the masses. And, incredibly, the wielders of this psychiatric weapon don’t try to hide the fact, but have instead actively sought to codify it in their “bible.”
Since 1952, the American Psychiatric Association has published the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or the DSM, as a guideline for the classification and diagnoses of mental health issues. Commonly referred to as the psychiatric diagnostic bible, the DSM, according to the APA itself, “is the standard classification of mental disorders used by mental health professionals in the United States and contains a listing of diagnostic criteria for every psychiatric disorder recognized by the U.S. healthcare system.”
Critics have long questioned the influence that Big Pharma has had in pressuring the APA to diagnose more and more behaviour as “abnormal” in order to prescribe pharmaceutical interventions to a greater and greater percentage of the public.
Concerns over Big Pharma’s influence on the creation of DSM are not trivial. In 2012, a study led by University of Massachusetts-Boston researcher Lisa Cosgrove noted that 69% of the DSM-5 task force members had ties to the pharmaceutical industry, including paid work as consultants and spokespersons for drug manufacturers. On certain panels, the conflict of interest was even more profound: 83% of the members of the panel working on mood disorders had pharamaceutical industry ties, and 100%—every single member—of the sleep disorder panel had “ties to the pharmaceutical companies that manufacture the medications used to treat these disorders or to companies that service the pharmaceutical industry.”
If these task force members’ goal is to make sure that more and more pharmaceuticals are sold, then by every measure they’ve been remarkably successful. Recent surveys indicate one in six American adults report taking a psychiatric drug, such as an antidepressant or a sedative. Worryingly, the number of children being prescribed antipsychotic medications like Adderall and Ritalin has continued to increase decade after decade.
But more worrying still is the way that this increase in antipsychotic prescriptions has been justified—by the invention of a new “mental disorder” called Oppositional Defiance Disorder.
Clinical psychologist Bruce Levin, who has spent decades ringing the alarm bell about the ways in which his profession is being used to repress legitimate political dissent, explains in his 2018 book, Resisting Illegitimate Authority:
Beginning in 1980, for noncompliant children who are not engaged in any illegal practices, the APA (in its DSM-III diagnostic manual) created the disruptive disorder diagnosis “oppositional defiant disorder” (ODD). For an ODD diagnosis, a youngster needs only four of the following eight symptoms for six months: often loses temper; often touchy or easily annoyed; often angry and resentful; often argues with authority figures; often actively defies or refuses to comply with requests from authority figures or with rules; often deliberately annoys others; often blames others for his or her mistakes or misbehavior; spitefulness or vindictiveness at least twice within the past six months.
Levine goes on to point out that the front line of this assault on the human psyche are the children who are diagnosed with a mental disorder for demonstrating previously normal childhood behaviour:
In 2012, the Archives of General Psychiatry reported that between 1993 through 2009, there was a sevenfold increase of children 13 years and younger being prescribed antipsychotic drugs, and that disruptive behavior disorders such as ODD and CD were the most common diagnoses in children medicated with antipsychotics, accounting for 63% of those medicated.
But the pathologization of those who show signs of “oppositional defiance” is not confined to children. Levine also observes, citing his own clinical experience:
Among the people I have talked with who have been previously diagnosed with psychiatric illnesses, I am struck by how many of them, compared to the general population, are essentially anti-authoritarians. Unluckily for them, the professionals who have diagnosed them are not.
As we shall see next week, the weaponization of psychology against those independent, free-thinkers who tend to question authority is not some vague, amorphous concern about a Big Pharma boondoggle that is hurting people in the pocketbook. Rather, this weapon is now being used against critics of the biosecurity agenda and others who dare point out that the globalist, transhuman emperor is wearing no clothes.
But if it is true that the study of the mind has been weaponized and that that weapon is being deployed against conspiracy realists, the obvious question then becomes . . .
Who Loaded the Weapon?
In October 1945, George Brock Chisholm—the man who would go on to serve as the first Director-General of the World Health Organization and the man who helped spearhead the World Federation for Mental Health—delivered a startling and incredibly candid lecture in which he laid out his plans for steering the profession of psychiatry in a bold new direction.
Published in 1946 as “The Reestablishment of Peacetime Psychiatry,” the lecture includes a bold proclamation that psychiatrists should take it upon themselves to rid the population of the concept of good and evil entirely: “If the race is to be freed from its crippling burden of good and evil it must be psychiatrists who take the original responsibility. This is a challenge which must be met.”
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Chisholm’s call to action was taken up by the British military. The “challenge” of “freeing the race” from the “crippling burden of good and evil” was taken up by British military psychiatrist Colonel John Rawlings Rees, the first president of Chisholm’s World Federation of Mental Health and chair of the infamous Tavistock Institute from 1933 to 1947.
In 1940, Rees gave an address to the annual meeting of the UK’s National Council for Mental Hygiene in which he laid out in predictably militaristic terms how this ambitious plan for reforming the public psyche was to be achieved. In “Strategic Planning for Mental Health,” Rees—after claiming that the psychiatrists of the council “can justifiably stress our particular point of view with regard to the proper development of the human psyche, even though our knowledge be incomplete”—asserts that they must aim to make that point of view “permeate every educational activity in our national life.”
He then launches into a startling confession:
[W]e have made a useful attack upon a number of professions. The two easiest of them naturally are the teaching profession and the Church; the two most difficult are law and medicine.” [. . .] “If we are to infiltrate the professional and social activities of other people I think we must imitate the Totalitarians and organize some kind of fifth column activity!”
Then Rees brazenly proclaims that “Parliament, the Press and other publications are the most obvious ways by which our propaganda can be got across” before reminding his audience once again of the need for secrecy if this plan to influence the development of the public psyche is to succeed: “Many people don’t like to be ‘saved’, ‘changed’ or made healthy,” he remarks.
So what were Rees and his fellow travelers really aiming at in their “fifth column” campaign to “attack” the professions and propagandize the public? His true intentions are revealed through his work for the British military—including his alleged drugging, poisoning and mesmerizing of Rudolf Hess, the Deputy Führer of the Nazi party who was captured and held by the British for decades after making a still-unexplained solo flight to Scotland in 1941—and through his work at the Tavistock Institute, where he attempted to mould public opinion in the UK to his liking.
As The Campaigner magazine explained in a Tavistock exposé published in 1978: “The theme of all of Rees’s known work is the development of the uses of psychiatry as a weapon of the ruling class.” That work, the article elaborates, included advising Rees’ superiors how they “can succeed in structuring a stressed individual’s or group’s situation appropriately, the victim(s) can be induced to develop for himself a special sort of ‘reaction formation’ through which he ‘democratically’ arrives precisely at the attitudes and decisions which the dictators would wish to force upon him.”
In other words, Rees’ work centered on the Problem-Reaction-Solutionmethod of mass social control that Corbett Reporteers will be very familiar with by now. It should be no surprise, then, to learn that Rees’ research heavily influenced the operations of a budding young intelligence service that was then forming in the United States: the Central Intelligence Agency.
Indeed, the CIA has always been interested in weaponizing psychiatry as a way of achieving success in their covert operations. In fact, the CIA even openly advertises job opportunities for psychiatrists to “help the CIA mission where it intersects with psychiatric and broader behavioral issues.”
But when most people think of the CIA and weaponized psychiatry, they think of MKUltra and mind control.
As even the Wikipedia article on the subject admits, the CIA’s “Project MKUltra” was “an illegal human experimentation program designed and undertaken by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), intended to develop procedures and identify drugs that could be used in interrogations to weaken individuals and force confessions through brainwashing and psychological torture.”
There is much that the public still does not know about this project, its forerunner programs, Project Bluebird and Project ARTICHOKE, and the depths to which agents of the US government sank to discover ways of manipulating, melding, erasing or reprogramming individuals’ psyches. But what we do know about the program is chilling enough.
One series of experiments, presided over by Sidney Gottlieb, involved administering LSD to unwitting Americans, including mental patients, prisoners, drug addicts and prostitutes. This included “Operation Midnight Climax,” in which unsuspecting men were drugged and lured to CIA safe houses by prostitutes on the CIA payroll. Their sexual activity was monitored behind one-way mirrors and was used to study the effect of sexual blackmail and the use of mind-altering substances in field operations.
Another experiment, dubbed MKULTRA Subproject 68, was overseen by the esteemed psychiatrist Dr. Ewen Cameron. This subproject involved Dr. Cameron using LSD, paralytic drugs, electroshock therapy and drug-induced comas to attempt to wipe patients’ memories and reprogram their psyche. When brought to light, the program was identified as an attempt to refine methods of medical torture for the purpose of extracting information from unwilling sources and was condemned. Lawsuits regarding the blatantly illegal experimentation conducted by Cameron continue into the current era.
Although MKUltra “officially ended” after its exposure in the 1970s, the CIA has not stopped employing psychiatrists to find new and innovative ways to psychologically torment their opponents.
In May 2002, Martin Seligman, an influential American professor of psychology and a former president of the American Psychological Association, delivered a lecture at the San Diego Naval Base explaining how his research could help American personnel to—in his own words—”resist torture and evade successful interrogation by their captors.”
Among the hundred or so people in attendance at that lecture was one particularly enthused fan of Selgiman’s work: Dr. Jim Mitchell, a military retiree and psychologist who had contracted to provide training services to the CIA. Although Seligman had no idea of it at the time, Mitchell was—as we now know—one of the key architects of the CIA’s illegal torture program.
Naturally, Mitchell’s interest in Seligman’s talk was not in how it could be applied to help American personnel overcome learned helplessness and resist torture but rather how it could be used to induce learned helplessness in a CIA target and enhance torture. As it turns out, Mitchell’s theory (that “producing learned helplessness in a Qaeda interrogation subject might ensure that he would comply with his captor’s demands”) was bogus. More experienced interrogators objected at the time, noting that torture would only induce a prisoner to say what his captor wants, not what he knows.
What those interrogators didn’t understand was that extracting false confessions from prisoners was actually the point of the CIA torture program. It was “confessions” extracted under torture, after all, that went on to form the backbone of the 9/11 Commission Report, with a full quarter of all of the report’s footnotes deriving from torture testimony.
The Worst is Yet to Come . . .
Yes, from mind control experiments to torture programs to brainwashing and lobotomization, there can be no doubt that the governments. militaries and intelligence agencies of every major nation have devoted considerable resources to the weaponization of psychiatry over the course of the past century.
But, as it turns out, one of the simplest and easiest techniques for controlling dissent is simply to pathologize it. As we are beginning to see, simply declaring resistance to the status quo to be a form of mental disorder can be an exceptionally powerful tool for silencing opposition.
Next week, we will examine the ways this technique is now being employed against the conspiracy realists who seek to point out the obvious truths about the homeland security state and the biosecurity state.
Stay tuned . . .

Finding Mental Health – #SolutionsWatch
The Corbett Report March 28, 2023
What is mental health and how can we achieve it? Is it only to be found in a trip to the psychiatrist’s office and a prescription for a Big Pharma medication, or do alternative mental care structures exist for those who need it? And what does all of this have to do with Baruch Spinoza, anyway? Joining us to answer these questions on this week’s in-depth edition of #SolutionsWatch is Dr. Bruce Levine, author of A Profession Without Reason.
