While I’m still on a home-bound retreat, nevertheless, the following article has been brought to my attention which has consequences for not only the readership of CRS but also for all Americans.
The American Psychiatric Associations is releasing their updated fifth version their Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5); the so-called ‘bible’ of psychiatric diagnoses. Within its pages will be a number of “newly” recognized mental disorders that previously might just have been written off to getting up on the wrong side of the bed or consuming just a little too much sugar for breakfast.
Under the new guidelines experts predicted that half of us will be diagnosed with a psychiatric condition at some time in their lives. This will have far-ranging ramifications most especially under the new regulations set forth by The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, certain groups of Americans like school children, seniors, those on government health plans such as Medicare and Medicaid, active-duty military personnel, and veterans will be required to submit to mental health screenings. These screenings will not only be mandatory in order to continue on government programs but these mandates will also spill over into private sector health plans and even employment.
This is truly a frightening Orwellian nightmare as you may be forced by your child’s school, by the government, and even your private employer to be involuntarily screened …and the psychiatrists who’ll be performing the diagnoses will be utilizing the criteria outlined in the new DSM-5. Since Obamacare requires mental health services for many other groups, including Medicaid recipients, addicts, mothers with postpartum depression, the elderly, and soldiers, we can extrapolate this and foresee that any diagnosis under the new guidelines will preclude our right to bear arms among other liberties we now enjoy, including employment. There’s even a section called “Mental Health in Small Businesses” which awards grants to small businesses willing to provide workplace wellness programs that encourage “healthy lifestyles, healthy eating, increased physical activity and improved mental health” under which mental health screenings will be utilized, thus employers may become unwitting agents of the Feds to further control the citizenry of the US.
For those under forty during the Cold War we were warned of the harsh mental illness diagnoses of the Russian and Chinese Soviets to silence dissidents by whisking them off to remote psychiatric facilities where they were kept under mind numbing drooling sedation, some for the rest of their natural lives, in order to control dissent among the general population. It is quite easy to discern, if not by itself designed to control the population, Obamacare coupled with the new DSM-5 definitions will be an easy tool for a corrupt and draconian government to enforce its nefarious plans.
At this time it is unclear to recommend how we can oppose these measures politically, (though many groups and organization are filing lawsuits), because we still don’t know the full extent of Obamacare. As Comrade Pelosi said when Obamacare was under review by Congress, we cannot see the true depth and meaning of it until it is voted into law. Well, in fact, we are slowly seeing the real impact of it as is little by little revealed to unwary eyes.
