Psyche Speak

crazy fix

Crazy is a funny term.

We use it everyday in our conversation referring to things that we find amusing, wild, silly, and brave. But when it comes to using it to describe mental illness, a person who has been “lucky” enough to have been diagnosed with one of the labels in the DSM-V, or Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders, (with over 300 titles to choose from), doesn’t find it so funny.

We live in troubled times.

Many of us are very sensitive to this fact, and without an affirming belief in a benevolent universe and loving Creator, and without the help of a strong support system, one can fall easily into despair. Emotional distress used to be called “problems with living,” as Thomas Szasz puts it, promoter of the anti-psychiatry movement. However, since the revised DSM III in 1980, understanding the context of a patient’s life and thus the deeper conflicts at hand, is no longer required from a psychiatrist in determining a diagnosis. The study of psychology has its roots in matters pertaining to the “psyche” or in Greek terms, “soul.” However, in the last few decades, the biological approach to treating patients has turned into an objectified Radical Behaviorism experiment of watching people’s behaviors as though we were rats in a cage.

We are part of a vast and  rigidly constructed matrix.

Psychology is used as a control structure. This mind-controlling grid of false ideas or memes, has successfully been created for the benefits of very few and to the detriment of most. Brainwashing about superiority of one group over another has been going on for centuries in every area of society, and very efficiently in academia- from the false science of Eugenics, to Social Darwinism, to bio-evolutionary psychology. All these so-called sciences start with the premise that some people are superior to others. With the next question being, “Why,” a system of inquiries to uncover that answer must then proceed. The conclusions made regarding inherent superiority of certain people are based on the biological idea that these defective traits are genetic. The concept that our genetic, biological hard-wiring is at the center of the expression of our mental faculties is absurd. This worldview suggests that we are nothing more than material composition incapable of shaping our own minds and spirits into that which we wish to become. Quite the contrary, the material world is a minuscule microcosm of what true reality actually looks like.


We blindly worship the religion of science to the exclusion of common sense.

The scientific method is a perfect system of analysis for helping us explain the natural world. It requires observation, question, research, hypothesis, experiment, and analysis, and then a conclusion can be drawn. It is not appropriate for observing people’s minds. Since one can never truly know what is inside the mind of another person, the science cannot be accurate. Psychiatry, as a self-proclaimed science, purports to use the scientific method but nothing can be further from the truth.The only basis of “experiment” is observing a person’s change in behavior after their treatment of psycho-pharmaceutical drugs.  Waiting to see if a person’s behavior has changed after they ingested a foreign chemical substance does not affirm anything about the mind. People who are on these drugs are also vulnerably open to suggestion that indeed they are ill, and that is why they are taking the meds to begin with. With our minds being stilled and lulled into a hush, we begin to believe the deception that we are less than normal. Because we attach the term “science” to this study, there is no questioning it.

I ask you this question: how is it that with no known curative properties and a list of side effects from here to the next border, do psychotropic drugs become the standard treatment for every known problem of life? There are no blood tests, no biopsies, no physiological evidence derived from something other than a psychiatrist’s imagination that prove that genetic markers are involved with a mental illness. We would sensibly demand any, and perhaps all, of these qualifiers from the medical establishment if we were judging the health of our bodies. When it comes to accepting a label for the rest of our lives diagnosing our minds as “chemically unbalanced,” however, we accept it without question. The basis for the growth in psychiatry beyond that of making the pharmaceutical companies rich, is that it operates as an institution of social control.


When you are unable to tell the insane apart from the sane,

there is a problem with the “science.”
