Re: Scientology and Antipsychiatry The gentleman is arguing against pathologization of behaviour along too narrow a definition of "normality," which is at best a poor choice of words. Where he got his "test for normalcy" he did not say, and I have never heard of such a test in my professional career. "Mental status exam," yes I have heard of that. Any PhD who presents as though someone is lending credence to a "test for normalcy" who doesn't specify his source, is likely a PhD who got his diploma through a mill or one who is on the periphery of his profession's theoretical / ethical foundation. "Dr. Breeding obtained his doctorate in School Psychology from the University of Texas. He is the author of two books, The Wildest Colts Make the Best Horses, and The Necessity of Madness and Unproductivity: Psychiatric Oppression or Human Transformation. His third, True Nature and Great Misunderstandings, will be coming out soon." sauce: John Breeding's Home Page This is indicative that the gentleman's principal training is in fact psychometrics and not clinical but school psychology. Great pick for an "expert." Let me quick go check and see what his connections to $cilontology are, shall I? BINGO: http://www.libertytothecaptives.net/alex_jones_promotes_scientologist.html "Radio broadcaster Alex Jones promotes Dr. John Breeding on his infowars.com and prisonplanet.com websites and sells two of his books. Dr. Breeding is a Scientology-endorsed psychologist who warns about the dangers of Ritalin and other dangerous drugs that are being forced on children today, and offers alternatives. The alternatives spring forth from Scientology and are spiritually dangerous. Dr. Breeding is definitely affiliated with Scientology, which has enormous influence in the New World Order network. Breeding quotes Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard in his book, The Wildest Colts Make the Best Horses and his website links to the Scientology front group, Citizens' Commission on Human Rights. Indeed, Dr. Breeding calls this powerful force for Scientology "an awesome organization." (Quote source: Stars Shine For Human Rights Freedom Magazine) (1) They in turn sell his books and have given him at least one prestigious award. Scientology's Freedom Magazine website (2) features an article written by Dr. John Breeding." NOTE: The above "evidence" is from another New World Order gai, so I thought you two would find yourselves on a similar plane of existence.

Petition Info The Texans for Safe Education in conjunction with Ablechild have launched a petition drive in response to the President's "New Freedom Commission" and its recommendations to screen all U.S. Citizens for mental illness. Recently the President's New Freedom Commission on Mental Health (NFC) has initiated what we call a govt. sponsored intrusion program that would mandate all U.S. Citizens (to include every man, woman and child) to be screened for mental illness (with the obvious resulting referral for dangerous, potentially neurotoxic and often addicting synthetic chemicals called psychotropic drugs.) To read more on this initiative and the direct threat on our privacy and health click here: Petition Info We strongly urge you to SAY NO to mandatory mental health screenings and sign this petition!
