If you question something, are you nutz?
Really, if you question authority, does that mean or imply you are mentally ill or in some need of psychological intervention or are only sheeple the sane ones. There has to be a baseline set for determining whether or not your actions are reasonable or even logical under most circumstances.
We have arrived at a point where the mental health profession has reached new lengths of determining your psychological status. Relying the newest issue of the American Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM for short) defined a new mental illness, the so-called “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD.
What this essentially says that whenever I oppose something with a declaration of opposition to what is being said or written, I am questioning authority and therefore a form or state of insanity. ODD is described as an ongoing [habitual] “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” symptoms include questioning authority, negativity, defiance, argumentativeness, and being easily annoyed.
Using those exact words to describe my own behaviors – I am nutz and only those who follow, conform, or never question directions or leadership orders are sane or well-balanced in their mindset. One would make us think that we are the problem and not those who mere accept whatever it is spoon fed by authority, media or other sources.
Maybe it’s my paranoia or my wasteful ways of thinking but it seems like every so often, most likely two or three years, the mental health profession comes up with another diagnosis that suits the need of government to put you away and claim your mindset is either threatening, incorrigible or dangerous to society.
