Courtesy, once again, of IPJ on Politics, whose net spreads wider than mine, for bringing this item to my attention.
"Do you question authority? Fail to accept conventional wisdom? Lose your temper when you hear a politician make a promise that you know he or she can’t keep? If so, you may be mentally ill, according to the most recent revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). In this revision, psychiatrists hope to add dozens of new mental disorders. Unfortunately, many of these so-called illnesses target people who merely think or behave differently from the majority population."
This would be the ultimate weapon of political control - disagree with membership of the European Union? Mentally ill! Disagree with Climate Change? Mentally ill! Believe that taxation is legalised theft? Mentally ill! Disagree with government overly interfering in our lives? Mentally ill!
One's first thought is that the people would never accept such changes - yet how long ago were Russian Gulags, Hitler and the Jewish solution?
Be afraid people, be very, very afraid!
