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

"Every child in America entering school at the age of five is insane."
Chester M. Pierce

"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 converts and 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 because the psychiatrists, as fully enculturated elite members of society, are constitutionally unable to call into question the cultural assumptions in which they are so 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

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 countires fare better over time than those living in "develeped" 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 allowed the person with schizophrenia a cleaner bill of health when the illness went into remission. An ill individual enjoying a time of relative mental health 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 was associated with a greater desire for social distance."

"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 weird or obnoxious 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 illnesses have never been the same the world over.

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.

Across the fertile crescent of the Middle East 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 as an expugnable illnesses.

"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 who are 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. Our 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 powerful chemicals.

"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 believe 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 almost 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, what cross-cultural psychiatrists and anthropologists have to 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

crazy reality

Psychiatric researchers estimate half of the American
population has had or will have a mental disorder at some time in their life.

Estimates of mental disorders continue to increase mainly because the
American Psychiatric Association keeps adding new disorders and more behaviors to the
Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

The American Psychiatric Association
has been inventing mental illnesses since 1952.

(Empire problem ... just ask uncle Siggy.)

"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" or "helped a lot" 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


Original American Psychiatric Association diagnostic manual appears and it contained 107 diagnoses and 132 pages.


The second edition has 180 diagnoses and 119 pages.


American Psychiatric Association produces a 494-page tome with 226 conditions.

New disorders and categories added include:

attention deficit disorder, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, social anxiety disorder, borderline personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder, gender identity disorder, tobacco dependence disorder, eating disorders, conduct disorder, bipolar disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, identity disorder, acute stress disorder, sleep disorders, nightmare disorder, rumination disorder, inhibited sexual desire disorders, premature ejaculation disorder, male erectile disorder and female sexual arousal disorder.

A pharmaceutical corporation has to have a "treatable medical condition" to begin clinical trials to determine the proper chemical compound for the "treatable medical condition".

female sexual arousal disorder:

Irwin Goldstein* develops the medical diagnostic concept of 'female sexual arousal disorder' on the basis of studies of the genitalia of female New Zealand white rabbits.

Irwin Goldstein develops animal models of 'vaginal engorgement insufficiency and clitoral erectile insufficiency' that, when applied to women, identify those women with 'female sexual arousal disorder.'

DSM-IV is 886 pages and 365 conditions - including 227 disorders, 38 types of psychosis, 18 types of delirium and 10 types of dysfunctions - which represents a 340% increase in the number of diseases over 42 years.

mental illness

"In psychiatry no one knows the causes of anything,
so classification can be driven by all sorts of factors." - Edward Shorter

"Effective psychotherapy seemed to require little more than
a willing patient and an intelligent and understanding counselor
who met and spoke regularly and in confidence." - Jonathan Engel

Little is known about the causes of most mental disorders.

Any behavior can look like a symptom.

Behaviors listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders:

restlessness, irritability, sleeping too much, sleeping too little, eating too much, eating too little, difficulty concentrating, fear of social situations, feeling morose, indecisiveness, impulsivity, self-dramatization, being inappropriately sexually seductive or provocative, requiring excessive admiration, having a sense of entitlement, lacking empathy, fear of being criticized in public, feeling personally inept, fear of rejection or disapproval, difficulty expressing disagreement, being excessively devoted to work and productivity, and being preoccupied with details, rules and lists.

signs of 'disorder' in children:

deceitful, break rules, can't sit still or wait in lines, have trouble with math, don't pay attention to details, don't listen, don't like to do homework or lose their school assignments or pencils, speak out too often or just simply ask too many questions.

(i am guilty of asking way too many questions )

we all go a little crazy

As Sigmund Freud* noted,
the signs of potential pathology are everywhere!

There are no biological tests, biological markers or
known causes for most mental disorders listed in the DSM !

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders lists twelve personality disorders, grouped into three clusters.

The DSM also contains a category for behavioral patterns that do not match these twelve disorders, but nevertheless exhibit characteristics of a personality disorder.

This category is labeled personality disorder not otherwise specified.

It is a requirement of DSM that a diagnosis of any specific personality disorder also satisfies a set of general personality disorder criteria.

we all go a little mad sometimes

"We don't live in the real world.
We live in a world we made up."
Frank Oppenheimer

Humans are "infovores."

The human eye fixates three times a second, drawn to novelty.

Without new information to assimilate, humans experience boredom.

Cognitive neuroscience explains that endogenous opioid peptide neurotransmitters are being activated.

The effect of opioids is pleasurable, the same neural receptors are involved in the high from opiate drugs, such as heroin© or opium.

In the past opioids were believed to exist primarily in the spinal cord and lower brain centers where they reduce the sensation of pain.

A gradient of opioid receptors has been discovered in a region of the cerebral cortex, humans' enormous outer brain layer that is largely responsible for perception, cognition and emotion.

In the areas of the cortex that initially receive visual or auditory information, opioids are sparse.

But in "association areas," where the sensory information triggers memory and taps into previous stored knowledge, there is a high density of opioid receptors.

So the more a new piece of information tickles that part of your brain where you interpret the scene or conversation, the bigger the opioid hit.

Staring at a blank wall will produce few mental associations.

Gazing at something that leads to a novel interpretation spurs higher levels of associative activity in opioid-dense areas.

We are thrilled when new insights tap into what we have previously learned.

Once we learn this truth we seek ways to feed our opioid desires.

The first time we experience a new perspective - a scene, a movie, a literary passage, a new experience - there's a high level of activity in which a few neurons are strongly activated as connections to memories and previous knowledge.

Then we "return to reality," the connections to memories and knowledge have already been made, the strongly activated neurons produce less opioids reducing overall activity and opioid pleasure now that we have absorbed the information.

This agrees with the theory of the Hedonistic Thermostat and what any introspective person already knows - old information and repeated experiences do not give us that opioid hit that we so desire.

It also helps explain the altered realities of heavy opium users like Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Thomas De Quincey, William Blair, HP Lovecraft, Edgar Alan Poe, ...

"The sense of space, and in the end, the sense of time, were both powerfully effected. Buildings, landscapes, &c. were exhibited in proportions so vast as the bodily eye is not fitted to conceive. Space swelled, and was amplified to an extent of unutterable infinity. This, however, did not disturb me so much as the vast expansion of time; I sometimes seemed to have lived for 70 or 100 years in one night; nay, sometimes had feelings representative of a millennium passed in that time, or, however, of a duration far beyond the limits of any human experience." - Thomas De Quincey

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 Life - 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 Life 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 cooperation. Cooperation 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.
