neurosis

‘Healthy neurotics’ keep a tight rein on risk

"If we think we can change anything using the same old useless tactics, then we are closer to becoming extinct than we know." - Anthony Bevilacqua

"Culture shapes the way general psychopathology is going to be translated partially or completely into specific psychopathology." - Sing Lee

"Neurosis is a natural response of human nature if a normal person is subordinated to domination of pathological people. The same applies to the subordination of a society and its members to a pathological system of authority. In a pathocratic state, every person with a normal nature thus exhibits a certain chronic neurotic state, controlled by the efforts of reason." - Andrew M. Lobaczewski


Agoraphobics are notoriously resistant to treatment.

Psychologists have found them unusually imaginative, creative and intelligent but extremely uncooperative when society expects them to return to the social group.

These highly articulate, self-imprisoned people are nothing less than the canaries in the coal mines of suburbia, the first sensitive casualties in a toxic cultural environment that is now affecting us all.

Kurt Vonnegut identified it as "a political disease," afflicting people who lack the essential emotional "damping apparatus" that prevents them from "being swamped by the unbelievability of social culture as it really is."

Lasting relief from agoraphobia did not occur by changing the perceptions of suffers but by changing the pathology "out there in the social group."

Rage and anger become the foundation of stressed out individuals suffering from the pervasive psychological disorder of a pathological social culture.

Many are acutely depressed by the collapse of civility; unprecedented homelessness; the acceptance of torture as a viable method of extracting information; competition for scarce resources; preemptive invasions built on lies; unprecedented incarceration rates; toxic wastes fouling the Earth; the glorification of violence, murder and genocide as viable solutions to human social problems.

Facing the truth about the grim political realities eliminates the paranoia that "it's all in our heads."

Modern therapy focuses almost exclusively on ego, separating an individual's problems from those found in the social culture.

Treatment programs teach disturbed citizens to cope (not protest) to adapt (not rebel) to "work the situation" rather than "refuse the unacceptable."

"Therapy, collaborating with governance, creates docile plebes." - James Hillman

Americans, proudly rooted in a heritage of rugged individualism, do not generally think of themselves as obedient - yet, as Victor Frankl observed of American culture, they follow orders again and again to "be happy.".



obdedience


"Now that I look back, I realize that a life predicated on being obedient is a very comfortable life indeed. Living in such a way reduces to a minimum one's own need to think." – Adolf Eichmann

Nobel Laureate Heinrich Boll, after World War II, said the most dangerous flaw in the character of the German people could be stated in one word: "Obedience."

Confusion occurs when imagined abstractions are mistaken for reality.

The Cold War seeped into the American psyche.

The baby-boom generation was permanently imprinted with the image of the mushroom cloud.

Secret decisions made behind closed doors in Washington had a direct impact on my kindergarten finger-painting of a mushroom cloud 2,000 miles away, as air-raid sirens drilled terror into my head.

Crouched between the wooden runners, minds squeezed with dread, hearts pounding we were hooked on adrenaline out of the starting gate.

Reaching for the lower rungs of the corporate ladder we learned to hold our liquor while understanding "Whoever dies with the most toys wins."

With narcissim ascendent Wall Street plundered America with leveraged buyouts.

"Economic competitiveness" allowed "market forces" to plunder the environment through deregulation.

Observers reeling from cultural traumas question the political formula of Walter Lippman and Edward Bernays to be "purged of feeling."

Americans, taught to look away, allow unchecked aggression.





American social culture is fragmented, megalomaniacal and delusional.

200,000 acts of televised violence an American child sees before turning 18 means one thing to Arnold Schwarzenegger an actor with made-up wounds in fake wars who supports real military aggression, and another for a dismembered veteran from a real war who now leads an unimaginable life.

Cold War secrets reveal the the specific details of environmental devastation.





If the full details of:

the crazed patient hospitalized in Oak Ridge, Tennessee disappearance;

Karen Silkwood death in a car accident, and the briefcase of missing papers;

Iran-Contra documents are under legal blockades at the National Archives;

lifting of gag orders in the settlement of critical medical suits;

if buried research explaining immune system dysfunctions is released;

we will not be surprised by the compromising secrets they contain.

Before any radioactive or toxic wastes can be dumped in the deserts or the oceans, they must first pass through dozens of minds.

Secret plans have to be discussed, secret orders have to be issued, secret papers have to be typed, secret cargo has to be transported, secret destinations have to be reached.

Homeless are not dropped on the streets by a deus ex machina.

They arrive through human actions and social choices.

The gentrification of single-room-occupancy hotels into condos that revitalize one small neighborhood for show while driving up rents and reducing housing.

Nonsense urban-renewal redevelopment projects using eminent domian.

Elimination of unskilled jobs that pay enough to support an individual.

Reinstitutionalization of the mentally ill in private prisons.

From mental health experts to taxpayers nearly all are guilty of indifference.

Breaking the habits of denial is no small chore.

Purged of feeling individuals are trapped behind veil of cognitive blindness.

Political systems that force individuals to conform to industrial roles and dehumanizing lifestyles create individual suffering on a massive scale.

Reforming a civilization under military control for over a century requires uprooting old lies.

We must actively resist indifference by allowing ourselves to feel empathy.



"True ignorance is not the absence of knowledge,
but the refusal to acquire it." - Karl Popper


"A social order that glorifies war, rewards hypercompetitiveness, restricts resources, promotes isolation and punishes those who "fail to measure up" requires the therapist to "stop using therapy sessions" to fix up the people so the system works and start fixing the system so the people can function.

One must gain necessary resources to remove self from a condition of oppression and to affect not only one's own circumstances but also general circumstances outside intimate surroundings." - Thelma Jean Goodrich



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.
