Paradigm - something serving as an example or model of how things should be done.
The current world paradigm stinks. Tear it down and build a new and better one.
Discrepancies between what people say they do and what they actually do are encountered in all walks of life, science, medicine, and psychiatry among them. It was precisely against such discrepancies that Einstein warned his fellow physicists when he declared:
Actions do speak louder than words. Clearly, there is no reason to assume that this proverb, or principle proposed by Einstein, is not equally valid for understanding the methods, and hence the very nature, of psychiatry (or anything else for that matter).
Current economic theories have failed to empower all people in all areas. Is this because those who claim to study economics consider all possibilities and present the truth? Doubtful. Why? First, because the current economic theories are largely directed and endorsed by large mega-corporate banking interests that have grown out of monarchical Europe and post-industrial America. Second, because the small group of people in control of a majority of the world's resources and production want to keep it that way.
Current medical solutions to cancer (and other diseases) get mediocre results at best. Is this because those who claim to seriously investigate cancer consider all possible solutions and present the truth? Doubtful. Why? First, because medicine is big business. It's a huge profit making empire. The major drug companies, affiliated with the major chemical and oil companies earn tremendous profits. Second, because the major drug companies, using the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) as their gestapo enforcement arm, actively locate, suppress and destroy any and all threats to their monopoly in the field. Real, workable cures to cancer have come along, and have been ruthlessly suppressed by the medical establishment.
The AMA (American Medical Association) engaged in a 15 year war on chiropractic in an attempt to destroy it. Why? Because chiropractic was fraudulent? No, because chiropractic was competing a little too well, taking away business and spreading some facts about the true nature of the medical establishment. They said chiropractors were quacks and alternative medical frauds, and successfully convinced many people of this in their attempt to wipe out the profession, but in the end the AMA had to admit their intentions and actions and ran a full page ad in USA Today magazine apologizing to the chiropractic profession. The ad ran because the AMA lost a law suit to chiropractic. The current approach to illness by the medical establishment is to "manage" and "control" disease. There is no attempt to prevent or cure disease. There is no money in that. In fact, it is illegal to say you can cure various diseases and you can be arrested for doing so (even if you can!). Try it sometime, and the FDA will be at your door very quickly. The FDA, while presenting itself as the "protection agency of the general public" is, in actual practice, the enforcement arm of the medical establishment and major drug companies.
Current solutions to "mental illness" and the problems of society are ineffective at best, and actually harmful, exacerbating the problems, at worse. Crime, illegal drug use, promiscuity, quality of education, immorality and international conflicts are worsening. Is this because those who claim to research and propose solutions in these areas consider all possible solutions and present the truth? Doubtful. Why? First, because the major players in these areas are behavioral and genetic based psychologists and psychiatrists, closely affiliated with the same major drug companies, governments, and mega-financial interests. Second, since the involvement of modern psychology and psychiatry in society the confusion and distress has actually increased in all these areas, in direct proportion to their active involvement in these areas. Third, the basic assumptions of modern materialistic psychology and psychiatry are severely flawed. The definition of psychology has been systematically altered over the past 100 years to the point where Man is viewed as an organic beast, with no mind at all.
The current world structure and all its major institutions exist largely due to the control and influence of a handful of incredibly wealthy individuals and organizations.
History: Force, Oppression, Control
Let's take a quick look at history. The history of Earth is mainly one of force exerted by one group upon others to exact compliance in some way. The Roman empire existed and expanded due to force applied through weapons and terror. Large standing armies, armed with swords, spears and other killing implements were the sole reason old and new subjects fell into line and did what was demanded of them.
The kings of Europe were a horrible bunch. The only reason the rulers of France, England, Spain, Germany and the other European countries existed is because of brute force. These countries formed out of force exerted on enemies and upon one's own people. The boundaries of countries and empires were constantly changing due to wars, more brute force. Taxes were and still are collected primarily through force or the threat of force. The IRS is no different.
The horrors of the Spanish Inquisition marked a terrible chapter in the history of one group, a religion in this case, using force in the form of torture and terror, to effect consent and agreement to their views and demands. This was slightly more insidious because the ruling group didn't simply want you to behave a specific way, they also wanted you to think a specific way. You weren't only expected to attend Church, donate regularly, and convert those of other religions, but you were expected to believe the religious dogma completely, and those who didn't or who held other beliefs were severely ridiculed, rounded up, tortured and killed. The worse ideologies also demand that you think a certain way in addition to behaving a certain way.
The one consistent factor throughout all history has been the use of force by the ruling classes or groups against the peoples of the world. Today the same mechanics are used, but differently and more subtly. Economics and psychiatry are the primary tools of the new ruling elite. And have no doubts about it, there is a ruling elite. They just aren't called "kings" any longer. They are called billionaires. Or International Bankers. Or philanthropists. When a majority of the population can finally be successfully addicted to legal drugs, under the guise of "therapy" and "mental health", and illegal drugs, coupled with contrived economic duress, then social control will be complete and the chance of revolt very minor.
Written in 1966, according to Ferdinand Lundberg (The Rich And The Super Rich):
The "kings" and despots of the middle ages have simply changed their manner and tactics. They are alive and well, and doing what they have always done, manipulating and using the rest of us by force. The controlling of education, media, economics, disease, production, and wars may be more hidden, but it is going on, and going on very carefully and dedicatedly. The advent of the New World Order is nothing more than the final consolidation of the entire planet by the select small group mentioned above. It has been the goal of every King and Emperor since time immemorial. The names and faces have changed, but the intention and plan lives on. There wasn't in the past, there isn't now, and there won't be in the future anything decent, noble or uplifting about it. It is all planned, and the plan is moving along nicely. The elitists have never before had such wealth, power and tools (i.e. behavioral engineering, psychiatric drugs, fluoridation, food additives with biopsychiatric side-effects, etc.) to realize their dream.
Examine Results and Products Only
One thing we each must learn to do is to examine results only. People can always be convincing and sell us on something. People can and do claim anything. Almost anything can be made to seem logical or "make sense" to a cunning con artist. Discipline oneself and learn to disregard all the yapping, references to research, since they are funded by those who want specific outcomes, arguments, and complex theories. Simply look at the results. What does the application of the theory in actual practice produce? Nothing else really matters.
Education before 1917 was largely successful and produced much better "products", graduated students who could think and do, than today's educational methods. Who cares about all the details and excuses. Modern educational methods don't work and they produce poor results. Why argue? Why listen to "authorities" and "professionals"? Why accept all the excuses?
Honestly, if a carpet cleaning company cleaned your carpets, and they looked worse than when he started, would you listen to all his reasons, theories and arguments for the superiority of his method of cleaning? Of course not. You probably wouldn't pay him and you would tell him to get lost. You would most likely tell your friends not to use this cleaner. Why do any different with the education of the entire future generation? Why do any different with psychiatric drugging, electric shock and lobotomy? Just look at the results. Look at the products, the effect of the application of psychiatry's methods. They don't work, and they produce harmful and damaged results. Don't pay them, don't support them and tell them to get lost! This attitude should be honestly applied to every modern institution. If their theories and methods don't work, don't involve yourself with them, refuse to support them, and discourage others from doing the same.
If you listen, argue, use "logic", reason, think about it, and do anything at all other than simply LOOK, OBSERVE and determine actual RESULTS, you will be deceived and led astray. Talk is cheap, generally always. In fact, the most powerful weapon in your personal arsenal is your own ability to observe, draw conclusions and benefit from the fruits of your own observation. Listening to others only supplies what they want you to believe. LOOK and OBSERVE for yourself. Too few people ever bother to actually do this. Most people think and reason almost exclusively with second-hand concepts given to them by someone else.
Everyone of us would benefit by doing the same thing with the existing medical, economic, and political structures. They are all tools of a small group of elitists who never have and never will care about you in any way. You are simply a member of the human herd. The old European Kings thought themselves to possess the "divine right" to rule. They were "noble", "better than the rest", and "inherently superior". To them, they could do whatever they wanted to the population, the "people" were nothing, and their entire purpose was to serve the King. Similarly, your job now is to do your part in their conceived world system. Work, play, eat, have sex, drink, get stoned, be entertained, consume, get a disease and die when needed (i.e. when the population gets too large from their understanding of an ideal population level), and above all, never question any of it. This is the result of modern science as applied to Man (i.e. the social "sciences - behavioral psychology, psychiatry, cultural anthropology).
Modern psychiatric methods harm people, just as they have always done. Brain surgery (lobotomy) has never helped the victim. Electric shock, while sometimes giving an apparent temporary respite from one's mental turmoil is incredibly brutal and oppressive. It is severe electric force applied to a human being. Large amounts of money are spent to convince us otherwise. Contrived studies are conducted and endorsed by "professionals" who are also supported by the same folks who put the educational systems in place to teach the psychiatrists the flawed theories in the first place. It's a huge contrived false reality. There is nothing inherently true, necessary or ultimately valid about it.
It is a huge contrived false reality. It doesn't exist because of some "natural, forward progress and evolution of Man". It is not the natural "advancement of civilization". It exists because some folks with a tremendous amount of money, power and control made it so. It is completely arbitrary. And sadly, most people will be unable to ever see and understand otherwise, and will remain loyal contributors to the charade through their unquestioning agreement with it all. Understand the participants, in this case practicing psychiatrists, are mainly dupes who have fallen for the charade. Many even truly believe they are doing the best thing possible. But this brings us to another point.
Sincerity, belief, and firm commitment by individuals and groups has never meant that what they are sincere about, believe in and are committed to possesses the slightest grain of truth. Some are very kind and appear to give much understanding. This also means nothing when it comes to truth. Widespread agreement by the public also never has implied the slightest degree of truth about what has been agreed upon. That's why democracy is flawed. Majority rule wins, and that often means the lowest common denominator of group agreement. Notice that "democracy" has become the much-promoted catch phrase of the United Nations and even US presidents. Democracy is desirable by those who can and do effectively control knowledge, information and beliefs. Then it looks like the people are deciding on everything, but they aren't. The United States is not actually a democracy, it's a republic based upon representation by elected officials. Why are US presidents then promoting democracy?
A few examples will suffice to make this point about sincerity, belief and commitment.
Belief Systems & Worldviews
The Catholic priest of the Spanish Inquisition and loyal torturer each believed in what they were doing. Most of the religious public accepted and followed the demanded views completely. The public had largely been convinced in the Church dogma, concepts of faith and heresy, and contributed, even if only on the surface, to the entire structure. The Priests and assenting public were each sincere, dedicated believers, and wholeheartedly committed to their notions and goals. But this existed despite the complete absurdity and destructiveness of the beliefs. Few people, while living within the framework of any specific belief system at any time during history, are capable of seeing anything from outside the existing worldview of the time. This is completely true today also. It's probably true for you right now as you read this.
Take Nazi Germany. Within a very short period, an entire country bought into the quite insane beliefs of the Third Reich. Millions of people were exterminated while countless others knew or suspected it was going on. The common folks believed the propaganda about the "Fatherland", "Aryan superiority" and the need to cleanse the pure race to bring about a wonderful new order. Modern genetic theories and psychiatry fueled this ideological nightmare. Again, sincere belief, and commitment require no ultimate truth or validity. I am sure many SS guards were very "kind" to their friends and even had wonderful senses of humor. None of these things imply truth or validity about anything. In the end the only barometer is results. What do they do? What are the results of their ideas? What happened as a result of following their beliefs? What did they cause to occur?
Some people may argue that "the Spanish Inquisition is not a valid analogy because those people were ignorant barbarians". Those "ignorant barbarians" were human beings, just like you and me, and if you took ten of them and placed them in modern universities they could and would learn and excel like anyone else. There is no difference in mental capabilities, and there probably hasn't been for at least the past two-thousand years. There has been absolutely no evolution of human intelligence or awareness. The only difference between then and now is the belief system, ideas and social structure within which the people existed at the time. Man could be much more than he now is, but not within the current Earth systems.
My point is that the world exists as it does largely due to the beliefs and considerations that the existing people hold about it. You could equally well take a sampling of "modern" people, and place them back in time during the Spanish Inquisition, and they would turn out to be no different from any other Priest, believer or heretic of the time. They would learn and accept the existing notions of reality and play their unique part, which depends primarily on individual preferences and proclivities.
You could take any person from a savage tribe of Africa, place them at birth in a modern society, and they will become a modern, intelligent person. You could also take any modern American or European and place them at birth in a savage tribe and they will grow up to be a savage. There is no difference in the inherent human mind or intelligence. The only difference is the existing social system within which people exist and develop in. Any social system functions in a certain way to impart the current range of ideas and beliefs to its members. The modern world social structure does the same, and is equally limited and restrictive in its own unique ways. Worse, it seems it may be intentional maintained this way.
We look back in history and say, "how could those people do and believe these things; they must have been idiots". No, they do what people do when under the influence of oppressive belief systems and structures. What is going on today is no different really. You just don't see it. You are stuck in it because you were brought up in it, and unable to see it from a position outside of it. Looking back in history separates you with time and places you outside the belief structures. You can even look back five or ten years ago and wonder, "how could I ever believe and do those things?" But right now, here in the present, you are stuck in it.
But believe me, in two-hundred years anyone looking back to this period of history will comment how ridiculous it was that people could believe they were only biological animals with no spiritual or mental aspect, subject mainly to stimulus-response laws, dosing their populations with drugs (legal and illegal), and denying anything not wholly materialistic.
Materialistic Ideology: Just Another Belief System and not "Truth"
"Materialistic science", "humanism" and "psychology" are the current, but quite arbitrary, world view that modern man has bought into and accepted hook, line and sinker. In fact, most are so convinced of its validity, that they are quite incapable of even entertaining the slightest idea that these notions are only notions and might be incomplete, invalid, and wrong. Talk to a humanist or psychiatrist sometime. They are just as "religious" in their beliefs and views as any medieval priest and quite incapable of viewing things from outside of their frame of reference. They will brag about how "objective" and open to new evidence they are, but they are not. Their concepts are incredibly biased and restrictive, and they are quite happy to enforce their notions on everyone else. And like the Priest of the Inquisition, the psychiatrist has absolutely no compunctions about consigning folks to involuntary commitment, declaring them "mentally ill", forcing them to take drugs, shocking them, or cutting up their brains. Modern psychiatry is the 20th century Inquisition.
Beware the the cocksure fanatic who is so sure of himself, and what is best for you, that he will torture, maim and kill you, while extending you total understanding and empathy, because it's in your own best interest! It was done in Nazi Germany to "purify the race" and bring about a "wonderful new order". The modern psychiatrist and social planner are no different at all from the Inquisitional Priests. Genetics, behaviorism, physiology wed to psychology, and psychiatry are the modern "religion". The ideology is arbitrary, wrong, believed to be "true", and enforced upon others in the name of "science", "peace", "order" and "advancement". This is the same modus operandi of past oppressive religions. Strangely many psychiatrists, atheists, and humanists will attack religion correctly for the same reasons, but completely fail to see they are guilty of the same errors. Modern science, in the name of humanism, pragmatism, psychology and psychiatry, did react against real barbarism and oppression of the earlier Church and State. The problem is that what they have have given us in its place is more of the same barbarism and oppression.
People need to develop the ability to pull out of their own frame of reference before they can ever be free of the current worldview they live within, and are actually completely trapped within. True personal freedom is quite impossible without this. But first, before that, you need to learn how to LOOK, OBSERVE, see what really is, decide for yourself, and benefit from the fruits of your own observation.
Look at the products of people and groups, and decide only based on that. The results are always clearly obvious and visible. People will attempt to distract you with arguments, "reason", logic, PR, emotionalism, appeals to intentions ("see how much I care", "I feel your pain"), and deceit, but pay them no attention. While the intentions, deceit and manipulation can be hidden, the products cannot. What are the results in the area or field? Look, judge and choose accordingly.
