Lobotomizing the Human Race.

Proposed revisions to the diagnostic “bible” of mental health disorders - the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Edition V (DSM-V) - in 2013, may classify grieving/bereavement, shyness and defiance as mental illness. In other words, the pathologization of conditions which used to be considered in the normal spectrum of human behavior occurs every time a revised or new DSM is released.

Don't be fooled. DSM is big business. Increasing the number of disorders gives psychiatrists greater latitude in prescribing even more drugs, thereby increasing the bottom line for Big Pharma. The bottom line is they want us running to our ever-increasing medicine cabinet every single time we feel something...anything. Can you say, zombie? Because that's obviously what our rulers desire in the long run.
