UN Tackles Mental Disorders: Supervise World Sanity Via 'People's Charter for Mental Health'?
World experts urge UN to take up mental health ... Mental illness and drug abuse can wreak havoc in global societies and economies, and the UN General Assembly should devote a special session to the matter, global health experts said on Tuesday. Every country in the world is affected by the burden of mental, neurological and substance use (MNS) disorders, but often sufferers face discrimination and human rights abuse, said the article in PLoS Medicine. ... Lead authors were Vikram Patel from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and Judith Bass from Johns Hopkins School of Public Health in the United States. Investment is needed in three key areas, they argued: expanding knowledge about mental health disorders, better access to evidence-based programs of care and treatment, and protection of human rights. A list of key needs to be addressed and steps to take could be enshrined in a "People's Charter for Mental Health" accounting for input from policy makers, families, researchers and other advocates. – AFP
Dominant Social Theme: The UN is the logical place to address the issue of mental health worldwide. When you need a problem solved, this is the place to turn!
Free-Market Analysis: So now the United Nations is to take up the issue of mental health on the way to creating a "People's Charter for Mental Health." But to us, this isn't a necessary antidote to another case of universal human suffering. It's merely the latest example of a fear-based, power-elite dominant social theme.
We try to explain on a regular basis how these fear-based promotions work and why they are so important to the control that a tiny group of humans exercises over others. The creation of a narrative is perhaps the most important part of an elite's toolkit when it comes to controlling others.
War and military conquest can create a temporary circumference of control, but to ensure that a population is not only pacified but actively engaged in its own enslavement it is necessary to create sociopolitical narratives that steer whole societies in certain directions.
The main narrative that the modern Anglosphere power elite is concerned with is the one that emphasizes the necessity of the state. The elite's fear-based dominant social themes inevitably present problems that can only be solved by state authority. These memes, in the modern day, are funded by control of central banks that give a tiny handful of families and their associates and enablers access to trillions.
Yet the problems are just as phony as the solutions. Today's problems such as the so-called war on terror, global warming or various impending scarcities (of food, water and oil) all tend to collapse into charades when one examines them closely. In fact, they were never created to stand up to scrutiny. The whole command-and-control strategy was created pre-Internet, and is, perhaps, collapsing post-Internet.
They are not, in fact, what they seem, but are elaborate shadow-plays that have been developed and propagated in order to manipulate entire populations into feeling cowed and generally fearful. The antidote to such fears, of course, is the authoritarian state.
Whatever problems the Anglosphere develops – and it churns out these dominant social themes on a regular basis via various facilities of the "open conspiracy" such as Tavistock, etc. – are to be counteracted by authoritarian activities that only a "state" can accomplish.
The importance of monopoly state authoritarianism cannot be overemphasized when it comes to elite activities. Ancient elites for the most part used to run the state. Today, the elites run the state behind the scenes. They do this by secretly pulling state levers via the methodology of mercantilism.
The bigger the state, the more effective its monopoly, the more control modern elites will have. This is why it is important to try to shrink the state rather than to "take it over" on behalf of "the people." Over time, elites will almost always manage to control a state apparatus if one is available, especially a complex one.
The article excerpted above touches on much of what we have come to understand regarding the way the elites work when it comes to creating a promotion and suggesting a solution.
It is probably true, due to various economic stresses and strains, that mental health is suffering around the world and has probably seen an especially sharp increase in the West – which is increasingly suffering from an economic downturn that in our view is getting worse not better.
As we and others regularly document, this downturn is an expected part of the elite's central banking mechanism. By printing money-from-nothing, the elites first inflate and then crash world economies.
This happens over and over again until finally economies are so out-of-whack that they go into a kind of permanent recession/depression that likely cannot be cured except by an outbreak of military action or some other kind of massive social upheaval.
Having helped created the problem of mental, neurological and substance use and having even provided the syndrome with an acronym (MNS), the elites are now ready to advance their roll-out. The next step is to involve the media. This has been done as well, via an increasing number of articles that have appeared in the Western media of late speaking to the issue of mental health, suicides, etc.
Articles on mental health and suicide have been especially ubiquitous in the Anglosphere's elite-controlled mainstream press, in part because overseas wars are giving rise to a generation of emotionally fragile war veterans who are committing suicide in unprecedented numbers. Millions of citizens overseas afflicted by these wars suffer as well.
We can thus see that world conditions have created mental health stresses and strains via what is apparently an artificial economic depression plus a series of unnecessary and exceptionally destructive wars.
Having created the problem, then analyzed it, propagated it and placed it within the context of the mainstream media, the powers-that-be are now prepared to propose solutions. In this case, the heaviest guns are being brought to bear via the United Nations itself.
Here's some more from the article, quoting the initial journal article that provides the requisite "legitimacy" to this propagandistic exercise:
"The time has come for recognition at the highest levels of global development, namely the UN General Assembly, of the urgent need for a global strategy to address the global burden of MNS disorders," said the article.
The article said neuropsychiatric disorders will account for the loss of some $16.1 trillion US dollars globally over the next two decades, with "dramatic impacts on productivity and quality of life," particularly as the population ages. About 25 million people have dementia worldwide, a number set to skyrocket to 80 million by 2040, with close to three quarters of dementia patients concentrated in low and middle income countries.
A majority of world governments would have to agree that the issue is important enough that it deserves a special session at the UN General Assembly. "The fact that MNS disorders affect people in all countries should offer considerable incentive for investments by both public and private sectors in this initiative," the authors wrote.
Well, there you have it. To us it's an almost textbook case of the creation of a dominant social theme. First the elites create the "problem" via various kinds of social chaos and war; then the problem is documented in an elite "scientific journal;" and finally, an elite globalist facility is trotted out as a resource – one that will create yet another layer of bureaucracy that will further expand elite, globalist control.
The ultimate element of this charade (and probably the reason for it) will be a People's Charter for Mental Health that will provide the opportunity for the elites to create yet more command-and-control bureaucracies.
To begin with these bureaucracies may seem innocent and even innovative. But over time it will become apparent that the UN is setting up some sort of worldwide mental health apparatus to evaluate people's emotional and intellectual stability.
Worst case – if it gets that far – the UN will try to provide itself not only with the authority to evaluate people's mental competence but also the authority to send people to mental institutions and re-education camps if they are not sufficiently docile and open to the appropriate level of mind control.
Of course, we are not suggesting it will necessarily get that far. What we call the Internet Reformation is making it increasingly difficult for the power elite to implement this sort of sociopolitical and thematic propaganda as part of their larger, apparent plan for a New World Order. Too many people understand at least partially that they are being manipulated, and even by whom.
Conclusion: The mechanisms are increasingly well known and the manifestations increasingly obvious. You can read all about it in hundreds and even thousands of articles written every day by the alternative Internet media. And of course, you can read about it here as well ...

The purpose of the UN is, not only to embody the elite New World Feudalism agenda, but to create programs that can be transformed into treaties which puppet politicians can commit nations to without the scrutiny of local legislatures. Hillary is hard at work getting gun confiscation this way. Is it any wonder that Soviet style 'mental health' is on the agenda. That way, incarceration or even killing opponents of the elite agenda can be justified, as the Soviets did, as no one 'in their right mind' would want anything but the elite agenda.
Sleep soundly. Your children are being taught this garbage daily in your public schools.

DB: "Worst case - if it gets that far - the UN will try to provide itself not only with the authority to evaluate people's mental competence but also the authority to send people to mental institutions and re-education camps if they are not sufficiently docile and open to the appropriate level of mind control."
Houston, we have a meme:
"Are Independent Thinkers Mentally Ill? ... Do you question authority? Fail to accept conventional wisdom? Lose your temper when you hear a politician make a promise that you know he or she can't keep?
If so, you may be mentally ill, according to the most recent revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). In this revision, psychiatrists hope to add dozens of new mental disorders. Unfortunately, many of these so-called illnesses target people who merely think or behave differently from the majority population.
A case in point is 'oppositional defiant disorder (ODD).' DSM defines ODD as 'an ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior toward authority figures.' Symptoms include losing one's temper, annoying people and being 'touchy.' Other 'disorders' include antisocial behavior, arrogance, cynicism and narcissism. Sounds like many of my readers!
While diagnosis of ODD 'victims' focuses on children, there's no reason why ODD can't exist in adults. Indeed, ODD can evolve into 'conduct disorder' (CD), which DSM defines as 'wherein the rights of others or social norms are violated.'

"White House Shooting Suspect's Path to Extremism ... The government says that on Nov. 11, Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez, 21, rode past the Ellipse in Washington in a black Honda Accord he bought with money he earned waiting tables at his family's small chain of Mexican restaurants here. Investigators say he slowed down as he passed the White House and fired a semiautomatic rifle from the passenger window. Bullets struck the White House near the residential quarters. The president and Michelle Obama were out of town.
The federal charges accuse Mr. Ortega of attempting to assassinate President Obama. They say acquaintances claim that Mr. Ortega was trying to kill Mr. Obama because he considered him 'the Antichrist.'
Mr. Chapman, 21, said he had not heard Mr. Ortega talk of taking violent action. But more than a year ago, he recalled, Mr. Ortega and others watched an antigovernment film on the Internet called 'The Obama Deception,' which was written, directed and produced by Alex Jones, a Texas-based conservative talk show host who has espoused a number of conspiracy theories involving the federal government."

@Catwriter, You seem to think that there are only two ways to go..either one is a republicrat or a dummocrat. Why limit one's thinking and imagination to the status quo? I suggest you learn what it means to be an independent, that is, one who doesn't follow the herd and march to the same drummer as all the sheeple.
You seem to have little understanding of how one 'takes down' control freaks, as if we all just 'allow' them to dictate our lives and control us. In the US the only way we can get our lives back is if each and every one of us stops paying taxes..that and that alone would put such a wrench in the system, it would come to a screaming halt, and not just for our gov't but equally for the PE, the puppet masters. It is your money they use, and if you willingly fork it over, don't expect any changes to take place as you are the supplier of their addiction to OPM/other people's money. It is the dummies who aid and abet by paying said taxes..just say 'no', and see what happens.
It is a silly statement to say the US is a nation without conscience. I am sure that there are elements within that manifest that death wish, but please don't lump us all in there. I suggest you attend a tea party meeting someday. But if you can't stand history, talk of the Constitution, natural law, or our innate freedoms, don't waste your time. Those of us who have been trying for decades to make changes, feel like voices crying in the desert. I guess it takes hugh amounts of pain for people to realize just how deep the cultural cesspool has become.
No little thanks to the sixties feminist movement that has brought us much of what ails us today. Again, some dizzy women liked that republicans were pushing for women to work outside the home, and like ditzes, all, they aided govt in forking over more taxes. They loved all you gals for being good little girls and doing what they wanted you to do. Now most women get to work three jobs... a paying one for corporations, an unpaid one as housekeeper, and a third one of raising kids or trying to fit them in somehow in your senseless schedules. Many of you just allowed this to happen and never fought for your own lives, or those of your families, so don't whine now. You wanted more greenbacks, and look what happened. They have taken your greenbacks, raised the bar of acquisition of food/gas, and most other goods..they have made your dollar worth less than ten cents..they have tricked you into materialism and you bit the bait, so pls don't come to me whining about those who now control your lives... .you wanted it and allowed it. Not all of us played the dummy game of 'keeping up with the Joneses'.

@Bobby, I outlined the rot above in those 12 points. I'm well aware of the rot, and so I outlined what is in fact, the rotten state of affairs now in the US.
The reality is what is taking place today, and little of it is good. Where did I say I have more freedom? I think that you were smoking something with your response above which bears no resemblance to my points.

JQ... only half??
I am sure that even the chief elf would use the term Republicrat or Demopublican.
I have often stated on this site that it is not the celebrities in the news or the handfuls of officials but the entire nation which is at fault. I do not only include those active in political parties but those who just go along and allow this nonsense to happen. These are people with no conscience, and the United States is a nation without conscience.
Back to the subject: I would suggest becoming familiar with Thomas Szasz' work. It is one thing to have a malfunctioning brain; it is another to have those with malfunctioning brains passing judgments that justify their destructive behavior. It is our responsibility as living beings to prevent such "people" to gain control over our lives, and it is our karma if they are sanctioned or allowed to act like that.

Obviously, the U.N. has no real intention of improving mental health. It does give them a nice avenue for regulating objectionable people.
An EXCELLENT book to read on improving mental health is "The Edge Effect".

As a retired mental health professional I can clearly state this was not an elite creation so much as the drug companies, insurance, and health professionals themselves. There are many excellent articles e.g.:

IRISH COALITION SUICIDE PACKAGE HAS GONE GLOBAL
The UN are looking seriously at the Irish Coalition Package & Eugenics Policy.
HOW IRELAND IS DEALING WITH ITS FINANCIAL CRISIS!
COALITION SUICIDE PACKAGE
It is strongly rumored that the Irish Coalition Government is putting together a Suicide Package for the old, the sick, the unemployable and unmarried mothers.
It is estimated to save hundreds of millions in the coming years. A special minister's post will be created and there will be a special bonus attached to their salary for reaching targets set.
There will be a Suicide Pact for individuals and also a Family Suicide Pact. It will involve having a solicitor assist with their Will, the Sale of any property etc. The Pact also provides an undertaker who will cremate the departed! If there is a good response to the Suicide Package, it is hoped that the ESB will provide a connection to the cremation centre to harness the power generated by the cremations.
On the night of 'departure', there will be a Going Away Party for their friends, limited to 10. At the end of the night those who signed up for Departure will be given all the assistance to make their Final Departure a success.
When a member of the Coalition Party was asked to respond to the idea of the Suicide Package, they were in full agreement. They said it was Part 1 of their Eugenics Policy and that Part 2 will start with a Live Births Policy. Those who cannot afford to have children will have their tubes tied. This will prevent the 'mongrel breed' running wild through our streets causing all kinds of unsocial activities. Crime figures will be almost eliminated. Males who are anti-social and unemployable will be castrated. Regeneration was a joke! There was nothing wrong with the housing; it was the 'mongrel breed' that was living in them! They should have been eliminated and the houses given to Refugees.
They said pensioners; those on disabilities, medical cards are living too long and need to depart a lot sooner. They are costing the country millions every year. We will give them a great send off and the country will be able to get back on its feet a lot sooner.
It was suggested by this reporter to the Coalition Party member, that there was talk that the old and sick were going to pool their resources and invite a Suicide Bomber Squad to Ireland to rid the country of lying politicians, banksters etc. They would pay their family the sum of 100,000 Euro to take out these people and that by doing so, rid the world of lying Infidels!
Arrangements are on going and the New Year might be very exciting indeed.
