Mixing Drugs, Guns, Crushing Poverty, Generational Racism, and Predatory Capitalism Doesn’t Work

Gary G. Kohls, MD for Global News Centre

(DULUTH)    March 21, 2005 – Red Lake, Minnesota – Under the crazy-making and neurotoxic influence of 60 mg of Prozac,  and using his grandfather’s shotgun and Glock pistol, Jeff Weise, age 16, shot and killed his grandfather and his grandfather’s girl friend at their home. He then went to his Red Lake High School and shot and killed a security guard, a teacher, 5 students, and finally himself, leaving a total of 10 dead and 7 wounded. Weise had previously spent about a year and a half in a residential juvenile treatment program, presumably under the care of a prescribing psychiatrist and other mental health personnel. Weise had reportedly had had his dose of Prozac increased to 60 mg per day. (Note: only one American SSRI “antidepressant” [all of which have  identical mechanisms of action and cause adverse effects] is FDA-approved for adolescents, and in some European nations it is against the law for doctors to prescribe SSRIs for children because of the  lack of long-term safety studies and the known increased incidence of violence and suicide. The usual starting dose of Prozac for adults is 10 – 20 mg/day and 8% of the population lacks the liver enzymes to metabolize and de-toxify SSRI drugs, thus becoming instantly toxic from the drugs.)

Violence Against Women: why we keep getting it wrong

If some of the people with whom we interact are particularly scared when people disagree with them, then they will tend to be more forthright in seeking our ‘agreement’ (especially, perhaps, in particular contexts).

(TASMANIA)   With the passing of another International Women’s Day, during which much attention around the world has again been focused on tackling violence against women, I would like to explain why none of the initiatives currently being proposed will achieve anything unless we acknowledge, and act on, the cause of this violence.

So let me briefly explain the fundamental cause of violence in our world, including the cause of violence against women, and invite you to do something very personal and effective about it.

Perpetrators of violence learn their craft in childhood. If you inflict violence on a child, it learns to inflict violence on others. The terrorist suffered violence as a child. The individual who perpetrates violence in the home, in the schoolyard or on the street suffered violence as a child. The man who inflicts violence on women suffered violence as a child.

Why do we fear challenging authority?

(TASMANIA)  Have you ever noticed your own inclination, or that of other people, to believe what you/they are told by someone seen to be in authority?

For example, did you know that there is overwhelming scientific evidence that the 911 destruction of the World Trade Center buildings 5, 6 and 7 was a false flag operation? That is, 911 was organised by the US and/or Israeli elite(s) and their agents in order to enable them to manipulate public opinion to support their subsequently initiated perpetual war in the Middle East and elsewhere.

Family Breakdown: one important cause of many of society’s ills

The growing number of studies in this field also suggest that these children have more problem behaviors and more trouble finishing school.

(WASHINGTON DC)    In 1965, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, then assistant secretary of labor who went on to serve as Democratic U.S. senator from New York for nearly a quarter-century, issued a report warning of a crisis growing for America’s black families.  It reported a dramatic increase in out-of-wedlock births and one-parent families and warned of the “tangle of pathologies” which resulted. Among these was poor performance in school, increased drug use, and a growing rate of incarceration for crime.

The importance of being angry

Anger is a vitally important evolutionary gift and without it we are perpetual victims.

Robert J. Burrowes Global News Centre

(TASMANIA) Unfortunately, in many circles, anger has a bad reputation. There are several reasons for this. One reason is that we are scared when people are angry at us, so we try to scare people, especially children, out of being angry. By doing this, we hope to escape responsibility for our dysfunctional behaviour.

Another reason that anger has a bad reputation is because it enables people to defend themselves against violence and other forms of abuse. But if we want obedient and hardworking students, reliable and pliant employees/soldiers and submissive law-abiding citizens, then we must terrorize people out of being angry. Social control is not easy with people who are powerful and you need your anger to be powerful.

A third reason that anger has a bad reputation is that anger is often confused with violence. But anger and violence are not the same thing. People who are violent are not angry; they are scared or, more accurately, terrified, and they use violence in a dysfunctional attempt to get what they need.

The wreckage of a soul

Tormented soul by NayrDavis

Tormented soul by NayrDavis

Until per chance for an age perhaps
Seeped in the restorative waters of profound contrition
Redeemed, arise anew in humility
Rectitude, empathy, purpose and communion

Poem by Soraya Boyd Global News Centre

Drifting in the fevered winter of a desolate mind
The captive pursuit of status and power a daily grind
In such a space the stilled bells of conscience no longer toll
For travailing arduously against sense and dignity many lose their soul

Defeating the violence of psychiatry

According to the ‘bible’ of the American Psychiatric Association (APA), the ‘Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders’ (the DSM), there are roughly 300 officially certified and distinct ‘mental disorders’. But there are no defining physical tests to diagnose any of them.

(TASMANIA) As the movement to abolish psychiatry continues to gather momentum – see ‘On Antipsychiatry’ http://bizomadness.blogspot.ca/2014/07/on-antipsychiatry.html – it is worth reviewing its delusional foundation, the history of its violence and its function as a weapon of elite social control.
