MENTAL HEALTH, EDUCATION AND SOCIAL CONTROL
Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D.
On November 14, 2007 the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate voted for HR 1429, Head Start reauthorization. In the House version, there was a good parental consent provision. However, when the final conference report was adopted, it was the Senate version that was included. Unfortunately, this version only requires written parental consent "before administration of any non-emergency intrusive physical examination of a child...." Obviously, this is a green light for any non-emergency intrusive "mental" examination of a child. Parents across this nation should be alarmed about this action by Congress. Regrettably, President Bush is expected to sign this legislation which deliberately omits parental consent for mental health screening of young children.
In previous parts of this series, I have mentioned how fluoride in our water affects mental health. Research by Prof. Roger Masters of Dartmouth University has shown a relationship between silicofluorides in water supplies and a higher rate of crime and violent behavior. This is because silicofluorides increase the uptake and absorption of lead from the environment, and lead alters brain chemistry causing loss of self-control. Hydrofluorosalicic acid (which, unlike sodium fluoride, has never been tested for health safety in water supplies) is used in 90% of our government-supplied drinking water. Eliminating this (because the benefit of fluoride is only topical anyway) would reduce crime and violence in the U.S., saving our health and a tremendous amount of money, too.
Also in previous parts of this series, I have related that mercury in vaccines has adversely affected people's mental health. This isn't hard to understand, as mercury is a neurotoxin. In 1999, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the U.S. Public Health Service actually requested that all mercury-containing thimerosal be removed from vaccines. Despite this, on September 26, 2007, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rejected a petition to add new restrictions to thimerosal, even though there's a growing body of evidence suggesting a connection between mercury and autism. In fact, if you listed the symptoms for mercury poisoning and autism, they are strikingly similar. Today, most doses of flu vaccine still contain thimerosal.
Today, 1 in 166 children have been diagnosed as having autism compared to 1 in 10,000 just a few decades ago. Actually, one shouldn't be surprised, because young children today receive multiple shots at the same time, so that the total level of mercury they receive is greater than public health officials just a few years ago said was safe !
Not only is the increase in autism alarming, but according to Dr. Mark Geier and David Geier, in 6 people develop neurological disorders today. Just this past June 26, a survey commissioned by Generation Rescue compared vaccinated and unvaccinated children in 9 counties in Oregon and California. Among more than 9000 boys age 4-17, the survey found vaccinated boys 155% more likely to have neurological disorders compared to those not vaccinated. Vaccinated boys were also 224% more likely to have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and the vaccinated boys were 61% more likely to have autism.
To obtain a copy of the Geiers' DVD on the subject, call 863-420-6373. Near the first of the DVD, a revealing investigative report by Steve Wilson of Detroit's Channel 7 is presented. He even includes reference to doctors at a private meeting saying they wouldn't want their children receiving vaccines with thimerosal, but they were not going to tell this to the public.
Jack Doubleday, director of Natural Woman, Natural Man, Inc., as of August 1 began offering $90,000 (with a $5000 increase per month) to any medical doctor or pharmaceutical CEO who will drink a mixture (body-weight calibrated dose) of standard vaccine additives. The mixture would include thimerosal, ethylene glycol (antifreeze), phenol (a disinfectant dye), aluminum, formaldehyde (a preservative and disinfectant dye), etc.
In previous parts of this series, I also have referred to problems with Columbia University's TeenScreen mental health survey, including its high number of "false positives" generated. Early this year, National Public Radio aired a report about a TeenScreen project carried out by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) which determined almost 50% of those surveyed were deemed to require psychiatric "interventions" of some kind. NAMI receives millions of dollars from drug companies.
Growing numbers of youth are being diagnosed as having mental health problems and in need of psychotropic drugs or antidepressants. A January 2006 Brandeis University study found that psychotropic drug prescriptions for teens increased 250% from 1994 to 2001.
Likewise, many pregnant women increasingly are being diagnosed as needing antidepressants. From 1999 to 2003, antidepressant use during pregnancy increased from 5.7% to 13.4%. The media has reported that antidepressants are perfectly safe, despite the fact that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) conducted a study that found the risk of several severe birth defects doubled or nearly tripled among babies whose mothers took SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) antidepressants during the first trimester of pregnancy.
In terms of education, after babies are born, increasing numbers of children are being placed in daycare learning environments. However, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHHD) has followed the development of 1300 children since 1991, and its recent study results concluded that the longer above 10 hours a week a child spent in group care, the more likely it is that teachers report behavioral problems once the youngsters start school.
And once the children start school, in many places they begin K-12 "comprehensive sex education" with obvious results. Even FAMILY PLANNING PERSPECTIVES, which is affiliated with Planned Parenthood, in its July/August 1986 issue acknowledged in research by Marsiglio and Mott that there is an association between taking sex education and starting intercourse at ages 15 and 16. Why have public schools done this? It's to further "The Sexual Revolution," which also is the title of a book by Wilhelm Reich (1929 original title SEXUALITY IN THE CULTURE WAR). Reich was a disciple of the insane Otto Gross, who believed the family and religion must be destroyed.
Expressing an attitude similar to Reich's, John Dewey ("The Father of Progressive Education"), in THE NEW REPUBLIC (December 5, 1928) had written in glowing terms how the Bolsheviks were undermining the church and family. The idea was to promote sex (fornication) to undermine Biblical moral absolutes which, in turn, would undermine the authority of the church and parents. John Dewey (who would be named honorary president by the National Education Association in 1932), in the same year as Reich's book first appeared, authored INDIVIDUALISM, OLD AND NEW (1929), in which he declared: "We are in for some kind of Socialism."
And regarding social control, if Sen. Hillary Clinton is elected president, we are sure to see "HillaryCare" socialized medicine tried again. Of course, with government controlling our medical care, this will be an easy way to monitor us. On August 14, 2007, GOVERNMENT HEALTH IT reported that "The CIA-backed venture capital firm In-Q-Tel is investing money in a company that sells software used for managing electronic health records." The software creates a "master patient index" that could be used by the CIA. This would be instead of assigning a unique health identifier to everyone, because most Americans would be alarmed about that and object to it.
Another means of tracking people is the implantation of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips in them. A little over a year ago, VeriChip approached the U.S. Government and recommended implanting RFID chips in military personnel. Concerning nonmilitary citizens, tracking of people's purchases is being promoted simply as "convenient." NEWSWEEK on July 17, 2006 published "Shopping: Give Them a Hand," which reported that 2.5 million subscribers have signed up to use "Pay By Touch" biometric technology available in grocery stores in 44 states. Stacey Minton, a "Coast to Coast" shopper refused to sign up, saying "We'll all have bar codes on the back of our necks in 10 years." But Pay By Touch spokeswoman Shannon Riordan forecast that "convenience wins in the end."
The American people have been so conditioned that they will allow government to do almost anything to them without protest, even eliminating Constitutional rights. In Judge Andrew Napolitano's A NATION OF SHEEP (October 30, 2007), he explains how the Bush administration with Congress' acquiescence now allows FBI agents to write their own search warrants without judicial approval. Judge Napolitano reminds us that one reason for the American Revolution was that British troops were here writing their own search warrants. He also reminds us that the Patriot Act now says it's a felony to tell anyone, even one's spouse or lawyer, if you have received one of these FBI-written search warrants. Judge Napolitano says this is worse than the Soviet Union where, if the KGB broke down your door at night, you could at least legally challenge what they did! Yet, the American people blithely and addictively continue watching inane sitcoms and soap operas filled with sinful/immoral behavior, while our Constitutional rights are being trashed.
This is how the power elite gradually conditions the people to accept its monitoring and eventual control of them. We must pray to God for His guidance and help in resisting and thwarting their devious machinations before it's too late.
