Chemical Restraints and The New World Order
Written by Katin for IPCRESS Blog
This essay was originally posted on my other blog on 5 June 2006. It describes The Establishment’s ongoing effort to get as many children as possible on the new “mood stablizing” drugs. Coincidentally, the next day, on June 6, The New York Times ran a story about precisely this thing–only from The Establishment’s perspective. It was written by Benedict Carey and titled, “Use of Antipsychotics by the Young Rose Fivefold.”
This story describes how, on January 28, Carol Fisher was arrested for posting Bush Step Down signs in Cleveland, Ohio. She was later found guilty of assaulting the two police officers who arrested her. The judge determined that anyone who resists arrest must be “delusional,” and had Fisher committed to the Psych Unit of the county jail. Fisher was scheduled to undergo further psychiatric testing.
This story indicates a pattern common among many modern totalitarian societies, which is to charge “trouble makers” with being psychologically unstable, so that they can be held in mental hospitals under “chemical restraints.” It shouldn’t be any surprise to see The Establishment ratchet-up this policy in the coming years.
Even scarier, are the plans currently taking shape to “chemically restrain” the majority of the population. Most futuristic novels, such as 1984 and Brave New World, describe a drug taken by the population, which rendered them tractable and politically harmless. The development of such a drug has been taking place for decades, and it has only been recently that they have discovered just the right formula.
The older drugs were too crude to be used on the population at large. Tranquilizers had too much of a sedating effect and would create an unproductive workforce. The goal was not to simply “slow down” the citizens, but, prevent them from becoming angry and rebellious. The Establishment also had to deal with common effects of depression, as depression was often the root cause of a dissatisfied citizenry. The development of anti-depressants has been going on for quite a while, yet, this is still not the ideal drug. Anti-depressants can create a stimulating effect in people who are not suffering from depression, and so, they are not the right drug for general circulation.
The goal is to find a drug which will prevent people from getting depressed, while, at the same time, keeping them from getting agitated, angry, and confident. In short, they want a drug which will not simply control our emotions, but, will eliminate most of them entirely; as any emotional response, whether it’s high or low, can develop into a politically-threatening attitude. These drugs have been developed, and have been produced for the last few years. Recent products are fine-tuned formulas, and plans are being made to distribute them among the population. These are the “Atypical Antipsychotics,” or, “mood stabilizers,” as they are commonly referred to. These drugs were originally designed as anti-seizure medications, and are technically called, “Antiepileptics,” or “Neuroleptics.” It was later found out that one of their side effects is that they dramatically reduce the high and low emotional responses in people. The drug companies immediately began to tailor these meds for “BiPolar Manic-Depression,” stating that they would eliminate the extreme mood shifts in these patients. If you are not suffering from Manic Depression, the drug has an even greater effect, and can wipe-out nearly all emotional response, producing a “flat affect” in ordinary people. Once these drugs were accepted as viable treatment for Manic Depression, efforts began to distribute the meds to a larger section of the population.
Now, at this point, anyone unfamiliar with what I usually write about may say that this is leading into some “Conspiracy Theory,” where the government is trying to drug us all into becoming complant, unemotional citizens. Yes–that’s precisely where I am heading with this. The Big Pharma companies derive over one-third of their profits from the sale of psychiatric meds, so, this is already an enormous industry. Secondly, the Pharma industry is incredibly political, and there is all sorts of government influence associated with drug production; so, it’s not unreasonable at all to assume that such a “politically valuable” drug would be developed by a collaboration between government and Big Pharma. Yes, drug companies routinely encourage doctors to over-prescribe meds for the sake of higher profits, but, this does not mean that profit alone is all that’s going on here. These drugs are the Dream-Come-True for modern dictatorships., and I believe their overprescription is part of a larger political plan. You may disagree with this conclusion, but, we will see what happens over the next few years. I am sure that Carol Fisher (in the above incident) was also diagnosed with “Mania” for attacking two police officers, and has been prescribed one of these new drugs.
Very, very few people suffer from BiPolar Manic Depression, so, it would seem that these drugs would not be able to reach very many people. However, efforts are underway to change this. The first thing which they need to do is broaden the definition of BiPolar Disorder. This they have done. Originally, BiPolar Disorder was considered a “chemical imbalance” in the brain, although now, the definition has been stretched to include environmentally-based BiPolar disorder, or BiPolarII as it is called. This condition can be induced under certain circumstances, such as a divorce, or going to college, or stress at work, etc. Everyone gets depressed. That’s the easy part. Not everyone gets “Manic,” and so, people must be convinced, somehow, that they suffer from “Mania,” or a Mania-related malady, such as anxiety, in order to qualify for the drug. Television ads for Zyprexa get people to log-into their website, http://www.bipolarawareness.com and take a simple test to see if they need mood stabilizing medication. Zyprexa is made by Lilly, btw. Here is a copy of the questionaire:
1. Has there ever been a period of time when you were not your usual self and…
–you felt so good or so hyper that other people thought you were not your normal self or you were so hyper that you got into trouble?
–you were so irritable that you shouted at people or started fights or arguments?
–you felt much more self-confident than usual?
–you got much less sleep than usual and found you didn’t really miss it?
–you were much more talkative or spoke much faster than usual?
thoughts raced through your head or you couldn’t slow your mind down? — you were so easily distracted by things around you that you had trouble concentrating or staying on track?
–you had much more energy than usual?
–you were much more active or did many more things than usual?
–you were much more social or outgoing than usual, for example, you telephoned friends in the middle of the night?
–you were much more interested in sex than usual?
–you did things that were unusual for you or that other people might have thought were excessive, foolish, or risky?
spending money got you or your family into trouble?
2. If you checked YES to more than one of the above, have several of these ever happened during the same period of time?
3. How much of a problem did any of these cause you – like being unable to work; having family, money or legal troubles; getting into arguments or fights? Please select one response only.
In order to qualify (according to the test)you must answer, “Yes,” to at least seven of the questions, and say that it was a “problem” (somewhat) for you. As you can probably see, givng a positive response to seven of these questions is not difficult at all for most people. Psychiatrists are given this list, and can pose these questions to patients in order to guarantee seven positiv responses every time.
Have you ever shouted at someone?
Every felt very self-confident?
Ever wake up a little earlier than usual, or, go to bed a little later?
Any times when you have been distracted?
Did something foolish or risky?
Ever feel a little more interested in sex than usual?
Ever have periods where you are more social or outgoing than usual?
Ever have periods where you have more energy than usual?
As you can see, it’s not very difficult to get positive responses to these questions. Psychiatrists don’t even need to get a total of seven right, either, in order for them to prescribe you the drug. Many psychiatrists are prescribing these drugs now as a preventative measure, for people who may develop these symptoms. Here is a great article from the Public Library of Science, April, describing the “Selling of Bipolar Disorder.” Check out the issue for other interesting articles on “Disease Mongering” and the selling of “Female Sexual Dysfunction” as well asother bogus disorders.
Let’s look at an example. Say that an eighteen year-old girl becomes depressed during her first year at college. This is very common. If the depression is interfering with her studies, the Psychiatrist could prescribe a mild anti-depressant to get her through the semester. Psychiatrists are being subtley discouraged from prescribing these meds, though. An effective and established anti-depressant, such as Wellbutrin, is very, very cheap. One of the latest and greatest Atypical Mood Stailizers, such as Abilify, costs a small fortune. The doctors receive all sorts of perks from the drug companies for prescribing these expensive meds. In the above example, this girl may show no signs whatsoever of manic behavior, but, the doctor will say, “If we give you an anti-depressant, and it turns out that you are in fact Manic, there is a small chance that this could trigger a manic episode. So, to be on the safe side, we’ll give you the Mood Stabilizer. This is how the drug is being sold. Millions of people complain of depression, and, instead of receiving a common anti-depressant, they are being prescribed mood-stabilizers.
But, it gets worse! The drug companies now have access to patient records. How? Through the insurance companies! Insurers do not want their patients running up unnecessary hospital bills, so, the drug companies “consult” with them on these issues. Everything is computerized, now. Every patient’s record, his prescriptions, his diagnosis, can be instantly called-up. (The drug companies do not have access to anyone’s medical records–although, this is entirely possible. They do, however, know how much of a certain drug a certain doctor is prescribing. The real issue is whether the drug companies know of the cases where a doctor could have prescribed Abilify, but, chose to prescribe an anti-depressant, instead. I believe they DO have access to this information, but, will post an Addendum to this essay if I find out I am wrong. Personally, I believe much more information is shared among Doctors-Insurance Companies-Big Pharma, than we are led to believe.) Let us assume that the doctor treating our 18 year-old student prefers to treat her simple case of depression with a mild anti-depressant, rather than a mood-stabilizer. The drug companies will notice that s/he is not prescribing the new Atypicals to his patients, and will inform the insurance company of this. The doctor is forced to obey the dictates of the insurance company–because the insurance company pays him/her! The chain extends, then, from the government, to the Pharma companies, to the insurance companies, and then to the doctors. Of course, someone may argue that just because the drug company wants the insurance company to coerce the doctor into prescribing these meds, is not to assume that the insurance company will actually do so. It’s far, far more likely that they will, though. As there are plenty of connections between Big Pharma and the Medical Insurance racket. Also, we can see it happening now. Doctors ARE overprescribing these meds.
It gets even worse!
People are just discovering the long-term effects of the ADD/HD drugs being used on children. It has been known that people who use speed and meth eventually screw-up their dopamine levels to such an extent, that they are unable to experience happiness anymore. The children on ADD/HD drugs are showing signs of the same symptoms after years of doing these drugs. This could certainly be considered a “Depressive” condition, as the patient has difficulty feeling joy or happiness. They also have an established history of Hyperactivity, and, so, are perfect candidates for mood-stabilizing drugs. The entire issue of ADD/HD is beyond the scope of this essay, but, in short, nearly all of this is complete horseshit.
The atypicals have all sorts of strange side-effects, one of them being that they increase blood sugar levels. There are signs that these drugs produce diabetes. Visiting the Abilify website (Abilify.com), we find these common
side affects: constipation, an inner sense of restlessness or need to move (akathisia), headache, nausea, upset stomach, vomiting, agitation, anxiety, insomnia, sleepiness, lightheadedness, and tremor.
On top of eliminating your moods, the drugs create a sense of anxiety and restlessness. If this society is not producing enough angst for you, these new drugs will do it!
The new Atypical Antipsychotics represent the Magic Bullet for the New World Order. Anyone who is angry, upset, or otherwise dissatisfied with The System will be diagnosed with some form of Mania and given these drugs. Carol Fisher was diagnosed as being “Delusional” because she resisted arrest! People arrested in mass protests may face similar diagnoses. These are “chemical restraints” for trouble makers as well as potential trouble makers. And, you will be forced to take these drugs, because the first people to be notified of this diagnosis will be your insurance company! You could be scheduled for routine checks to make sure the drug level in your body is what it should be. If you are insured through your company, non-compliance will mean that you will lose your job.
Now that they have the chemical they need to keep people under control (while remaining productive,) we should keep an eye out for how aggressively it will be distributed. Already, there are planty of ads on TV for these drugs. Certainly, any younger people who are receiving counseling for hyperactivity or depression, or, really, anything at all, should read-up on this and use their better judgement when agreeing to take these meds.
