antidepressant medications :
"If you aren't happy in your work, that must imply
a fault in your production process (socialization, education, training);
fortunately, that can be adjusted with pharmaceutical technology." - Charles
"Antidepressants increased the risk compared to
placebo of suicidal thinking and behavior (suicidality) in children,
adolescents, and young adults in short-term studies of major depressive
disorder (MDD) and other
disorders. Anyone considering the use of [insert name of pharmacuetical
profit center blockbuster] or any other antidepressant in a child, adolescent,
or young adult must balance this risk with the clinical need."
"A review of seventy-four clinical trials of
antidepressants found that thirty-seven of thirty-eight positive studies [that
praised the drugs] were published. But of the thirty-six negative studies,
thirty-three were either not published or published in a form that conveyed a
positive outcome." - Marcia Angell, MD, Executive Editor The New England
Journal of Medicine
"All the SSRIs [including
Prozac® and Luvox®] relieve the
patient of feeling. He becomes less empathic, as in `I don't care as much,'
which means `It's easier for me to harm you.' If a doctor treats someone who
needs a great deal of strength just to think straight, and gives him one of
these drugs, that could push him over the edge into violent behavior." - Dr.

American Society of Psychoanalytic Physicians

"The risk of violence on these drugs
has been known for 50 years. It's known that even giving these drugs to healthy
volunteers can cause them to become violent. The data has been out there in

doctor who can say that they simply couldn't have been
aware of this issue. If there are, they
are simply not professional." - David Healy
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
created 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 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 mass
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.
