A souls silent scream to be itself manifests as mental illness in the eyes of those that demand fealty.


Chinese charater for mental disorder

Mental illness is caused by obedience to coercion.

The psychic cure for obedience to coercion is

self-determination.

Introducing the Power Threat Meaning Framework


"Those who hunger for power are psychopathic bastards."

Chris Hedges


"It is not a sign of a healthy mind to be well-adjusted to a sick society."

Jiddu Krishnamurti


"I contend that most of the mental illnesses that we are seeing in America
is reactive to the depraved nature of those who seek power over others."

Dave Hodges



"Criminal psychiatry and psychology risk becoming the ultimate alibi behind which the prevailing system will hide in order to remain unchanged.

They could not possibly suggest a serious alternative to the prison system for the simple reason that they owe their origins to it." - Michel Foucault


"Therapy has established itself as the successor both to rugged individualism and to religion.

Therapy constitutes anti-religion, not always to be sure because it adheres to rational explanation or scientific methods of healing, as its practitioners would have us believe, but because modern society has no future and therefore gives no thought to anything beyond its immediate needs.

"Compassion" as self-sacrifice or self-abasement, "meaning" as submission to a higher loyalty - these sublimations strike the therapeutic sensibility as intolerably oppressive, offensive to common sense and injurious to personal health and well-being.

To liberate humanity from such outmoded ideas of compassion and duty has become the mission of the post-Freudian therapies and particularly of their popularizers, for whom mental health means the overthrow of inhibitions and the immediate gratification of every impulse." - Christopher Lasch

America’s Descent Into Madness

punishing so many innocent people is intolerable

Are we all going mad, or are the experts crazy?

"Psychiatric treatment is infamously impotent to address serious mental conditions.

Psychiatrists, as fully enculturated elite members of society, are unable to call into question the cultural assumptions in which they are deeply invested.

Their investment blinds them to the underlying rightness and fundamental sanity of a patient's reaction to a world gone wrong." - Charles Eisenstein


"Mental health professionals in the West, and in the US in particular, create official categories of mental diseases and promote them in a diagnostic manual that has become the worldwide standard.

American researchers and institutions run most of the premier scholarly journals and host top conferences in the fields of psychology and psychiatry.

Western drug companies dole out large sums for research and spend billions marketing medications for mental illnesses." - Ethan Watters


"A survey published in the early 1970s found that whereas a majority (59%) of people who had visited a professional psychotherapist for emotional distress reported having been "helped" by the consultation, much larger majorities of people who had consulted a clergyman (78%) or a physician without specialized psychological training (76%) or - get this - a lawyer (77%) reported the same thing." - Scott Stossel


Labeling mental illness as biochemically based creates greater tension than labeling mental illness as a disorder of the spirit - such as demon possession, incorrect thinking or spiritual corruption.

Individuals with "schizophrenia" in Third World countries fare better over time than those living in "developed" nations.

Over the centuries every culture has developed unique ways to deal with someone who is behaving in a culturally non-normative way.

"Muslim and Swahili spirits are not exorcised in the Christian sense of casting out. Rather they are coaxed with food and goods, feted with song and dance. They are placated, settled, reduced in malfeasance." - Juli McGruder

Certain emotional reactions from family members correlate with higher relapse rates for people who have been diagnosised as schizophrenia.

Reactions such as criticism, hostility, overprotectiveness or constant intrusiveness may cause relapse.

"Spirit-possession beliefs had unexpected benefits.

Critically, the story allows the person with schizophrenia to rejoin society when health is restored.

An ill individual enjoying a time of relative grounding could, at least temporarily, retake his or her responsibilities in the kinship group.

Since the illness was seen as the work of outside forces, it was understood as an affliction for the sufferer but not as an identity." - Ethan Watters

In a study conducted in Turkey those who labeled schizophrenic behavior as akil hastaligi (illness of the brain or reasoning abilities) were more inclined to assert that schizophrenics were aggressive and should not live freely in the community than those who saw the disorder as ruhsal hastagi (a disorder of the spiritual or inner self).

Another study, which looked at populations in Germany, Russia and Mongolia, found that "irrespective of place endorsing biological factors as the cause of schizophrenia is associated with a desire for social distance."

Unfortunately social distance increases isolation enhancing schizophrenia.


"Behavior can not be pathological.

It can simply comport with, or not comport with, our expectations of how people should behave.

Analogously, brains that produce atypical behaviors are not diseased.

They are brains that produce atypical behaviors.

The erosion of personal responsibility is the most pernicious effect of the expansive role of psychiatry has come to play in American life.

It has successfully replaced huge chunks of individual accountability with diagnoses, clinical histories and what turn out to be pseudoscientific explanations for deviant behavior." - Irwin Savodnik

Anthropologists and cross-cultural psychiatrists have amassed an impressive body of evidence suggesting that mental illness is culturally specific.

In some Southeast Asian cultures, men have been known to experience what is called amok, an episode of murderous rage followed by amnesia; men in the region also suffer from koro, which is characterized by the debilitating certainty that their genitals are retracting into their bodies.

In the Levant there is zar, a condition related to spirit-possession beliefs that brings forth dissociative episodes of laughing, shouting and singing.

"Behind the promotion of Western ideas of mental health and healing lie a variety of cultural assumptions .

Westerners share, for instance, evolving beliefs about what type of life event is likely to make one psychologically traumatized, and we agree that venting emotions by talking is more healthy than stoic silence.

Our biomedical advances are hard to separate from our particular cultural beliefs." - Ethan Watters


Human troubles - from anxiety, interpersonal squabbles to misbehavior of many kinds - is to be viewed not as an inevitable part of the human comedy, but as psychopathology to be treated with powerful neurotoxins.


"Mainstream Western psychology has limited the definition of mental health to the interpersonal context of an urban-industrial society.

All that lies beyond the citified psyche has seemed of no human relevance - too frightening to think about." - Theodore Roszak


The vast broadening of the definition of mental disorders has skeptics suspicious of the motivations of the American Psychiatric Association and the pharmacuetical manufacturers.


"Mental illness is feared and has such a stigma because it represents a reversal of what Westernized people have come to value as the essence of human nature. Western culture highly values an illusion of self-control and control of circumstance, we become abject when contemplating mentation that seems more changeable, less restrained and less controllable, more open to outside influence, than we imagine our own to be." - Juli McGruder

The metastasizing Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders of the American Psychiatric Association appears to be caught up in a contemporary narcissistic quest for individual perfection through the application of neurotoxins.


"Western mental-health discourse introduces core components of Western culture, including a theory of human nature, a definition of personhood,
a sense of time and memory and a source of moral authority.

None of this is universal.

One set of ideas about pain and suffering is being presented as definitive.

There is no one definitive psychology." - Derek Summerfield


Social engineers claim powerful neurotoxins are necessary to create a civil and just social culture of perfectly conforming individuals capable of serving existent social institutions.


"We say we are being kind, but our actions suggest otherwise.

Viewing those with mental disorders as diseased sets them apart and may lead to our perceiving them as physically distinct.

Biochemical aberrations make them a different species." - Sheila Mehta


The implicit ideal - the properly medicated healthy, normal and truly happy camper - will harbor no serious worries or animosities, no sadness over losses or failures, no disappointments with family, no doubts about themselves or conflicts with others, and, certainly not the expression of strange ideas or behaviors defined in media as psychopathology.


"For more than a generation the West has aggressively spread mental illness around the world in the name of science changing not only the treatments but also the expression of mental illness in other cultures.

In the end, cross-cultural psychiatrists and anthropologists tell us is that all mental illness, including depression, PTSD and even schizophrenia, can be every bit as influenced by cultural beliefs and expectations today as hysterical-leg paralysis or the vapors or zar or any other mental illness ever experienced in the history of human madness." - Ethan Watters

unique library index

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.



This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
