Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (Matthew 7:15)

Italy boasts one of the highest youth unemployment rates in Europe, at around 45%.  Worker ‘protections’, a high minimum wage, and centuries of encrusted regulations on business make hiring inexperienced young workers unprofitable.  The more ambitious among them have abandoned their country of birth in search of greener pastures, including in the US, whose corresponding unemployment rate is under 20%.  Nevertheless, the Pope saw fit to come here and and lecture us on the dangers of unbridled capitalism, and to extol the memory of Thomas Merton, a psychic and mystic, and Dorothy Day, a socialist who fought for greater worker protections.  These, he believes, are the people to whom we should aspire, even though their doctrines have been discredited and inevitably lead to the scourges he decries – unemployment, poverty, mental illness, crime, drug use, and family disintegration.

ANSA610095_ArticoloBy pushing the same policies to reduce poverty, suffering and inequality that actually cause it, the Pope creates a powerful countercycle, in which an increase in social ills leads to a call for more of what ails it.  The problem only gets worse for the vulnerable people he claims to care most about.  Unemployment in Italy will not improve any time soon, which is great news for government bureaucracies, law enforcement, mental illness services, and the human trafficking industry.  The Catholic Church rallies around the Pope.

Leadership of the Church covered up for decades the sexual abuse of 100,000 children, and now the Pope promises to “zealously” guard the children in the fold.  However, the they have set their sights on the world at large and the Pope’s policy recommendations will increase the stock of exploitable resources even as he decries exactly that.

Blame the healers

The CDC recently issued a countercyclical calling on to doctors to limit opiate prescriptions: liberal dispensing practices caused addiction and therefore restrictions will reduce it.  However, this will only push more people into the dangerous heroin market, which results in more unsafe behavior, overdose and death.  These are lifesaving medications and many legitimate pain patients will kill themselves because chronic pain is awful and they cannot get the relief they need.  Nevertheless, the CDC will count up the deaths of the ‘addicts’ and cry, “We must crack down more on irresponsible opiate prescription habits!”

However most of the people dying are not drug addicts, and typically each overdose has a specific cause, such as a traumatic life event, chronic pain, or 12 Step cult bullying.  Drug addiction itself is not a disease but a religion, and trying to prevent it by restricting opiates is like trying to eradicate Catholicism by criminalizing wine and crackers.

Unsurprisingly, the Pope supports the Drug War: “Drug addiction is an evil, and with evil there can be no yielding or compromise. To think that harm can be reduced by permitting drug addicts to use narcotics in no way resolves the problem.”  In fact, the Drug War creates exactly the addictive behaviors and crime the Pope decries.  Such countercycles increase the problems they are purported to solve, and the associated propaganda worked effectively for almost a century.  Fortunately people are starting to realize that the Drug War was a complete failure.  On the other hand, the Pope’s and Bernie Sander’s socialist rallies still attract large and enthusiastic crowds.

The oldest scam in the book

If you can convince someone they have a disease, then you can exact a high price for the cure.  This is the oldest scam in the book and is the basis of the 12 Step cults like AA: “I drank for decades and had a blast but eventually it almost killed me and it will surely kill you too. Now, confess:”

Most people who go through a heavy drinking or drug use phase will moderate naturally without treatment.  However, the ‘disease’ countercycle creates the unhealthy and damaging binge-abstinence behavior that manifests as ‘symptoms’ – the relief of which is to admit even more sincerely that one’s substance abuse is a disease.  Of course, the problem only worsens, and 12 Step treatment results in extremely high death rates.  The promise of ‘jails, institutions, and death’ becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Typically crime, aggression and lying long preceded the first drug use, as reported by the addicts themselves at their meetings.  Disease theory doctrine that holds that drug addiction causes crime will only make the problem worse.  We need not believe the claims of self-professed liars and thieves who first tasted opiates after a ‘sports injury’.  Nevertheless, public health officials call for “more of the same, but in a more intense way.”

Similarly the mental illness industry convinced us that depression, autism, ADHD and schizophrenia are brain diseases.  In fact they are just normal emotions that commonly occur at various stages of development and are then complicated by cognitive fallacies.  But the industry sells expensive treatments and pills to save us from certain doom.  Thousands of children took Risperdal for years, leaving them obese and troubled.  The resulting problems generate statistics that cause us to double down on more of the same.  A recent study on suicide in the military showed that more intensive treatment for depression actually increased suicide – and still many call for more psychiatric ‘treatment’ in the VA.  Parents are encouraged to ask colleges about mental health services for their children during campus visits.  Calls for more ‘early intervention and treatment’ will only trap more people in this powerful countercycle, and it is getting harder to break.

In fact addiction and mental illnesses are not diseases but forms of mass hysteria.  They are instilled and aggravated by media portrayals in news and movies which model such behaviors as ‘bipolar‘ and ‘early onset Alzheimers’.  Sensationalist news stories claim that addiction causes crime, prostitution, and overdose and renew calls for the Drug War, which only exacerbates these naturally occurring social ills.

Servants to ideology

Students on college campuses are at an age where it is common to re-evaluate basic assumptions, and therefore are particularly susceptible to countercyclical reasoning.  ‘Tone policing’ and ‘trigger warnings’ ostensibly to protect people from PTSD and ‘microaggressions’ only serve to increase anxiety and neuroses and self-censorship in the population as all interactions become laden with deeper and sinister motivations, creating even more referrals to mental illness services and student adjudication committees.  A powerful new countercyclical promoted by Lady Gaga shows that ‘disrespect’ and drinking cause rape which causes low self esteem and mental illness.  Here is the simple truth: low self esteem often results in regretted sex, false accusations, and substance abuse.  However the ‘campus rape crisis’ alarm rings for more mental health services and substance abuse ‘treatment’ that only further erode self esteem and increase drinking and exacerbate the original problem.  The goal of this agenda is to disadvantage and institutionalize large swaths of the population either as mentally ill or criminal.

The pope decries religiously motivated fanaticism like ISIS, when in fact religion is just a convenient rationalization for their mischief – a dynamic he should be familiar with by now.   He encourages us to ‘serve people not ideologies’ but we all serve our own ideologies.  He denounces ‘extremism’ without acknowledging it is another’s ‘moderation’.  He offers no way to discern the good from the bad.  And meanwhile he pushes his own discredited agendas.

The Protestant Reformation was in large part a rebellion against the Catholic Church’s commodification of penance for sin – confession will save you from eternal damnation but the priest will exact a price.  They have now adopted the more sophisticated mortgaging schemes of the modern religions of addiction and mental illness: sin now, amend later, and meanwhile make the monthly payments with the blood of the victims.

Cooties for Grownups

Ye have been rebellious against the Lord from the day that I knew you.  (Deut. 9:24)

Cooties and alcoholism are two devastating scourges both characterized by denial, the persistence in which only ‘proves’ you are already afflicted.  Whereas cooties is more likely to infect children, alcoholism and addiction tend to affect adults, especially by middle age, when they recount a long sordid history of substance abuse and mischief in AA drunkalogs, before coming to acceptance after decades of denial: the 12 Steps saved them from the deathly disease, which will surely be your own undoing.  The strength of denial has a perfectly scientific explanation, as Nora Volkow of NIDA explains: ‘Addiction is a disease of free will’.  She would know, as her own grandfather died of it.  (As compared to say Bolshevism, which while just as deadly, has not yet been associated definitively with any dopaminergic pathways.)

The Devil Made Me Do It

Most people go through life completely unaware of a small blind spot in their field of vision.  Here is a web site that helps you ‘see’ it.   The blind spot corresponds to the part of the retina where the optical nerve passes.  (Move closer to the screen if you don’t see it.)

devilSimilarly, the human mind is equipped with a moral blind spot.  We are sometimes completely unaware of the real reasons we behave and feel the way we do.  Perhaps there’s a good reason for that, even if it gets us into trouble sometimes.  It’s pretty funny when you think about it.

Latest Demon Drug Craze Everybody Panic!

Angel Dust from the 80’s was highly addictive and drove people to crime and insanity while imparting superhuman strength, making it especially demonic and a threat to civilization as we knew it.  The media was full of stories of people crashing through glass windows while high on PCP or flipping over cars and requiring 10 people to hold them down. (No I am not confusing these stories with “The Hulk”, which was a TV series from the 70’s, though it may have inspired such portrayals.) Continue reading Latest Demon Drug Craze Everybody Panic!

Silly Robots

It’s amusing to watch as you slowly awaken from the mass delusion known as ‘addiction’.  However many of you are confused and disoriented as you try to find your bearings.  Which normally in such a situation I would say to relax and take a long drag.  But in this case I figured it would be more helpful to plug in the holes in your knowledge, lest you panic again and lurch dangerously toward the self-destructive idiocy we silly robots seem to get so enamored with.  (Don’t let a good crisis go to waste, right?)


Mornin’ ! Wakey wakey !!

I’ve compiled a list of the old propaganda to help you understand how we’ve gone so terribly wrong in the past, followed by recommendations for accurate education which will prevent such disasters from happening again in the future.  These messages focus on medical professionals, the public at large, and finally what to teach the newcomers.

US braces for July 4th 12 Step attacks

In an ominous warning issued jointly by the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and the National Counterterrorism Center, all US law enforcers have been instructed “to be vigilant and prepared” for homegrown terror threats by Alcoholics Anonymous ahead of the July 4th Independence Day holiday.

caliphHouse Homeland Security Chairman Mike McCaul also advised Americans not to dismiss the government’s warning. Speaking to “Fox News Sunday,” McCaul revealed that “there is a great deal of meeting making, a high volume” based on 12 Step terrorist network communications, which greatly increases the likelihood of ‘relapse’.

The Debunking of Addiction Pseudoscience

Dr Quackenfraud explains addiction

A little over a year ago, if you dared challenge the prevailing claims of modern addiction science, such as “Addiction isn’t a real disease” or “Drugs don’t make you rob drugstores” or “Blackouts are just an excuse for not remembering traumatic episodes of anonsex” the Steppers (and secret steppers) were quick to rain down on you a stream of insults and accusations of ‘ignorance’ and say, “This is established science!  You need to educate yourself!”   Continue reading The Debunking of Addiction Pseudoscience

Someone Call the CDC!

The Nazis slaughtered people by the millions in concentration camps and yet most who were told of this didn’t believe it, or thought the claims were exaggerated, or thought the speaker was ignorant, insane, in denial, lying, crazy and/or stupid.  In the terms of modern times they might have been called ‘delusional paranoid schizo’.  (Or ‘cray cray’ in the technical lingo of NIAAA Chief Dr. George Koob.)

The Devil’s Lament

Allow me please to introduce myself.   My name is Lucifer and I am known as the Great Deceiver but you can call me Satan.  I’ve been around for a long, long time, as you know.  I was the guy who sat on Eve’s shoulder and whispered into her ear, “Eat the apple and you will be like God.”  Then she ate the apple.  I did the same to Adam.  So he ate the apple too.  Then God found out and Adam blamed Eve.  LOL.

A Conversation with Lisa O’Neil Guerci: SMART facilitator extraordinaire

SMART Recovery stands for “Self-Management and Recovery Training” and was created by Marc Kern as another front group for AA.  The strategy is to provide a softer, less religious indoctrination into ‘addiction’: “one drink probably won’t kill you”, and then later suggest that you might be a real alcoholic after all (“one drink will surely kill you”) and you need complete abstinence as available only at AA.

Marc Kern also founded “Addiction Alternatives” in Beverly Hills with Dr Adi Jaffe.  Dr Jaffe is a UCLA addictions expert and self-proclaimed “master liar“. Continue reading A Conversation with Lisa O’Neil Guerci: SMART facilitator extraordinaire
