Catholic Church & Govt Say Kids “Consented” to Sexual Abuse to Avoid Paying Them Compensation

An underage child cannot consent to be sexually abused. However, the Catholic Church and the government are claiming this as a defense. By Matt Agorist A scathing report from Victim Support, a charity dedicated to helping victims of sexual abuse, has shed light on the Catholic Church and the government working to avoid paying compensation to child victims of sex abuse. The government agency, Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme, and the Catholic Church are actively attempting to deny financial settlements against them, saying the victims have “consented” to the abuse by government agents and clergy — even if they were too young to legally do so. As the Independent reports, Lawyers representing victims have warned that this line of defense is becoming increasingly common. One case that the charity Victim Support brought attention to involved a 12-year-old girl who was given alcohol, brought into woodland and then sexually assaulted by a […] Read More

Non-Conformity and Questioning Authority Are Now Considered Mental Illnesses

Do you believe that nonconformity and freethinking are mental illnesses? Well, according to the most recent edition of the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), they are. The popular psychological manual is considered the “Bible” of the psychiatric and psychological profession. The new fifth edition of the DSM identifies a mental illness that it terms “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD. On the surface, this might sound legitimate, but when we look at how the DSM defines it, a number of serious problems arise for free thinkers. The DSM defines ODD as an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior.” It’s symptoms include“questioning authority, as well as the vague description of “negativity, and equally vague “defiance,” and “argumentativeness,” or even “being easily annoyed.” Let’s take a look at that for a moment – the DSM has defined “oppositional defiant disorder” as being “defiant.” But there’s not need to listen to me, […] Read More

17-Year-Old Kristiana Coignard Shot and Killed by Three Police Officers after Brandishing Knife

It’s hard to imagine if she walked into a police department in nearly any other country in the world that she would’ve died in a barrage of bullets. American police will kill you. Run from them, they’ll kill you. Act nervous when they scream at you and they’ll kill you. Do nothing at all and they’ll kill you. Walk down the stairs and they’ll kill you. Put your hands up and they’ll kill you. Mental illness matters not to American police if they imagine, sense, or perceive a threat of any kind; They will shoot you over and over again until you die. It’s not this way around the world, but in the good ‘ol US of A, our officers are shooting and killing people at a record pace. So, when Kristiana Coignard walked into a Longview, Texas police department, and picked up the phone there to speak to someone, the fact that she would soon be shot to death by […] Read More

“If You Question Authority, You Are Mentally Ill”, Report Finds

Submitted by Pater Tenebrarum via Acting-Man blog, Only the Sheeple Are Sane This post is about an issue that is by now a bit dated (though the topic as such certainly isn’t), but we have only just become aware of it and it seemed to us worth rescuing it from the memory hole. In late 2013, the then newest issue of the American Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM for short) defined a new mental illness, the so-called “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD. As TheMindUnleashed.org informs us, the definition of this new mental illness essentially amounts to declaring any non-conformity and questioning of authority as a form of insanity. According to the manual, ODD is defined as: […] an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” symptoms include questioning authority, negativity, defiance, argumentativeness, and being easily annoyed. In short, as Natural News put it: According to US psychiatrists, only […] Read More

How Modern Life Is Making Us Addicted and Insane

Constant distraction creates an insecure attachment with kids, which can lead to addiction and mental health issues. Over the past decade or two, seasoned therapists who treat young people have been seeing some increasingly worrisome trends. Although solid statistics are hard to come by, one indication of a surge in troubled young adults comes from the reports of college mental health services. A 2010 survey by the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at the University of California, Los Angeles of almost 202,000 incoming college freshmen at 279 colleges and universities showed a shocking decline in self-reported mental and emotional well-being—at its lowest level since 1985, when HERI began conducting the surveys. In this recent survey, the percentage of students who rated their emotional health “above average” fell from 64 percent in 1985 to 52 percent. According to the June 2013 APA Monitor, 95 percent of surveyed college counseling-center directors said […] Read More

2014: Clinical lycanthropy | People do believe they are werewolves!

Clinical lycanthropy is a psychiatric disorder that causes a hallucination in the affected person into believing that he is or can become an animal. This disorder has been primarily associated with schizophrienia, but may also occur in bipolar disorder (mixed type), severe psychosis, manic-depressive illness, seizure disorders, psychotomimetic drugs, food poisoning or hallucinogenic substances. The symptoms of lycanthropy varies over a wide range, depending on the local culture where this phenomenon occurs. Overall this syndrome resides in an imbalance mind, which makes the patient believe his actual metamorphosis into an animal and thus acquires their behavior: for example, growls, walks on all fours, biting objects, being unable to speak, being overly aggressive and suffering from eating disorders (i.e the excess of eating raw meat, etc..). Clinical lycanthropy does not only refer to the transformation from human to wolf; the metamorphosis is extensive. There are reported cases of lycanthropy in  […] Read More

2014: Non-Conformity & Creativity Now Listed As A Mental Illness By Psychiatrists

It’s no secret that when society, as a whole starts thinking outside the box, or starts to question what’s really happening on the planet it faces a fierce opposition. It’s also no secret that authority figures throughout history have ridiculed ideas that simply did not fit the frame. In our not so distant past, new ideas and understandings were harshly opposed by those in control. A great example is Galileo, who was convicted (and worked banned) from the public domain, and labelled as crazy. Scientists during this time were also sought after and killed. Have things really changed today? Is the pharmaceutical industry another means of condemning and altering those who think outside the box? “The nail that sticks up will be hammered down.” – Japanese Proverb Is nonconformity and freethinking a mental illness? According to the latest addition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, it […] Read More

2014: Mental illness is the new normal

by Jon Rappoport February 14, 2014 www.nomorefakenews.com The strategy is as old as the hills. Show people an extreme example of something, and thereby convince them to accept a compromise. In this case, parade before the public—along with assured pronouncements from “mental health experts”—images of James Holmes, Aaron Alexis, Adam Lanza, etc.—and say: “Look, these are people who committed unspeakable crimes because they were suffering from mental disorders, and we must do something about it…in fact, at least half of all Americans have some sort of mental disorder…” It’s a nudge, a coax, a veiled threat, an invocation of fear. “Gee, maybe I have a mental disorder and I don’t even know it.” It softens up the population. “If you have a mental disorder, you should get diagnosed and treated. Otherwise, later on, you could go off the rails and commit a horrible act. It’s inconsiderate and dastardly to […] Read More
