Yes, that’s what I’m wondering after reading a Wikipedia entry yesterday about conspiracies regarding “The New World Order.” It showcases how conspiracy theories have always been around, and that the only factor that seems to change are who the bad-guys are … this is an entertaining read if anything: Illuminati confirmed. That being said, there have been cases of creepy conspiracies being blown open for the whole world to see, yet it is quite funny what the human mind can come up with….The New American Spies…..
This is a good article criticising the art of diagnosing people from afar, a practise that appears to be reserved for lone-wolf serial killers and world leaders vilified by the mainstream press. The article is hilarious and calls out all of those mental-health professionals who came out of the wood work to give Norway’s most notorious gun-man all sorts of labels without ever having interviewed him properly. The article then concludes with some telling revelations of how Putin has been diagnosed with Aspergers based on how he moves in videos, a conclusion reached by a research group over at the US Naval War College.
There is also a rule in place within the therapist community called the “GoldwaterRule,” after psychiatrists came out and publicly concluded during the 1964 presidential election that the Republican candidate Goldwater was mentally unfit for office. However it seems like psychiatrists and psychologists alike have thrown this rule under the bus in the wake of Trump, undermining their own credibility by throwing around the one diagnosis after the other. I shared another excellent article from Norway on Twitter not that long ago, where it was pointed out that everyone are talking about mental health disorders at the moment, even those who don’t really have an official diagnosis. Yet the real issue at hand is that people don’t talk about why they feel down or why they might suffer from a panic attack. It has become trendy to self-diagnose while avoiding the real reason as to why one might feel out-of-it. To paraphrase a popular online meme: “Before self-diagnosing yourself, make sure that you are not surrounded by assholes.”
This act of self-diagnosing and assuming all sorts of things is a worrying trend that I got caught up in myself back in 2015, when I prematurely and ridiculously came out of whatever closet. Totally ridiculous; but we are all a product of the times that we live in, regardless of how free-thinking or independent we like to fool ourselves into believing that we truly are So next time you think that you are depressed, well maybe you just have a bad day, and if you feel upset about something then maybe it is time to talk with the individual who is pushing your buttons for whatever reason, if that’s the case. It is also unwise and equally ridiculous to diagnose other people with all sorts of ailments, something I think everyone is guilty of to one degree or another. “This weirdo did so and so, hence he/she has to be insane!” Really? Says who? The fact that medical health professionals also fall into this trap is very telling and does not reflect well neither on their profession nor our current culture of general confusion.
Here is an article about Jordan Peterson a clinical psychologist, with qualifications, who knows what he is talking about. I might not agree with all of his statements, but when talking about human nature, etc; he is incredible. Check him out if you dare!
I do believe that we have legitimate reasons to worry not just in our part of the world but in the US as well, yet this article is interesting and recommend some intriguing books that everyone should probably check out. (It is of interest to note that people on the right are being criticised for adopting leftist methods, it’s a never-ending battle of ideas and values and the people on the other political spectrum want to win the tug of war obviously, and are not happy to see what young conservatives are up to).
If you want to feel dizzy or you need to fall asleep but are struggling, then I can highly recommend reading about the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
