Big Pharma, The DSM, and the Marketing of Madness

Big Pharma has found a way to make us a nation of pill poppers. People pop pills every day of the week, every week of the year, and every year, for the rest of their lives, unless there is some sort of bad interaction with the medication they were prescribed- to which in the case the doctor may try something else, and hope for the best. This pill popping paradigm we currently live in, didn’t happen by accident. As soon as we get our first head ache, we are given a pill, and voila! Head ache gone! It starts with the weaker painkillers, but as time progresses if you don’t fit into this sick society you may be diagnosed with a personality disorder…. dun dun dun! You probably know a friend whose been diagnosed with depression, bipolar, ADHD, obsessive compulsive disorder, etc. and has to take a pill every day for this. You yourself may be diagnosed with such a disorder, shit if you read the DSM you’ll find some sort of mental disorder to which you fit the symptoms of, so even if you haven’t been diagnosed, you can always ask your local legitimate dealer I mean psychiatrist for one of them Prozac prescriptions (Prozac is made with fluoride, ya the same toxic waste byproduct that’s most likely in your drinking water). Now what exactly is the DSM?
The DSM is short for the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and and a new one is released by the American Psychiatric Association(AMA) every so many years. Basically a bunch of these “doctors” discuss different symptoms of different hypothetical disorders, and compile it in their DSM book. The reason I put the word doctors in quotations is because I have little respect for Psychiatrists, and the reason I say hypothetical disorders is because there is no scientific test that can be done on a patient to prove they have any mental disorders, it’s all based on the bullshit the AMA made up. I think psychiatrists are overpaid unnecessary douche bags, and I’d like to kick one of them in the nuts, hm maybe two of them… ya but two should should do just fine… alright I’m getting off topic now. Psychiatrists are not to be mistaken with psychologists who actually know the mind quite well and do something aside from writing quick prescriptions to make incentives from pharmaceutical companies and hope the prescriptions don’t lead to a suicide lawsuit, which would really ruin the vacation the good people at GlaxoSmithKline have given you for you’re 100th prescription. That’s right, I went there.
First thing they have to do is they have to make you believe that there is something wrong with you. Do you get restless when sitting in a class listening to a teacher spewing verbal diarrhea based on a curriculum put in place to keep the population dumbed down enough to not realize they’re getting fucked in all their orifices regularly by the system? Take some Ritalin or Concerta, it’s all Methylphenidate anyways cause you have ADHD! If it’s really severe take some Desoxyn which is prescription Methamphetamine. Ya that drug that they talk about being so bad, is actually good if it’s given by a quack. It has nothing to do with the class that you’re sitting in is boring as fuck, and anyone in the right mind would be restless. No, no, no- it’s that you’re fucked in the head!? capiche?
I too was prescribed an anti-depressant and an anti-psychotic, and after taking em, I started cutting myself. Maybe it was also because I was living in the hospital at the time with a bunch of other fucked up kids. I questioned the efficacy of the whole program while I was there. I used to say, “Put a bunch of fucked up kids in the basement of the hospital, fill them up with drugs, and expect them to get better.” HA! I wonder why I got kicked out of that program early?
Something I began looking into more is vitamins and nutrients, and I was amazed to see how many of these so-called “mental disorders” were more likely related to vitamin deficiencies, or hyperglycemia, or hypoglycemia. Now I see they are taking some of the initial steps to ban vitamins and nutrients with something called Codex Alimentarius which you can read about here. I wonder why?! Aside from population control, it’s probably also so that a person can’t take vitamins and nutrients to treat their own ailments, they are forced to get a prescription for being fucked in the head because a book compiled by a bunch of schmucks said so. It’s starting to seem more like Alduous Huxley’s book “Brave New World” everyday.
All I’m saying is if you think there’s something wrong with you, that you have a “chemical imbalance” and you’re all mood-swingy, or depressed, or you can’t sit through a boring lecture, a) maybe you should take look at your diet, (maybe drinking red bulls to compensate for feeling tired isn’t the best way to go about it) b)maybe everyone has highs and lows which doesn’t necessarily make you a bipolar (if such a thing truly does exist) or c) maybe most people who aren’t on amphetamines can’t sit through mr. dull-lessons lecture either, because he’s a boring mother fucker.
They have marketed madness so well that no one realizes that the DSM is made up every so many years and is basically dogmatic bullshit as there is no biological test they can do to prove undeniably that any of the disorders in the DSM are real. It’s all psychiatric hearsay, to make you believe you’re fucked in the head without popping their poorly tested medication which may result in you having suicidal thoughts, or sniffing Ritalin in the washroom between classes (and how!).
It’s all done to peddle drugs to people who don’t have any REAL illnesses, and to make more profit for the pharmaceutical industry who have lobbied their way into the psychiatric schools to train these douche bags to prescribe pills that the FDA passed in a heart beat because they’re in ca-hoots with Big Pharma, and it’s not until these drugs have been used on the population for so many years that we finally see what some of it’s adverse effects really are.
I’m going to end this blog with a quote and a short youtube clip of standup comedian Doug Stanhope, telling it how it is:
“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society” Jiddu Krishnamurti
