COINTELPRO Journal #2

In the previous journal #1, I reported fake diagnoses of psychiatric disease. From my experience and research, it is real that psychiatrists are used to fabricate schizophrenia so that politicians can silence opposing people, maintain their power, and control over the thoughts and actions of citizens. As a matter of fact, when I was instituionalized at a psychiatric hospital, the common question I was always asked was:”You do not look mentally ill at all. Why are you here?”– I wondered if I should act more schizophrenic for them; that might be easier than explaining my complicating situation.

Nonetheless, it is good for me to live in the community as a fabricated schizophrenic. Since organized stalking is an international organized crime, in the U.S. as well, groups of stalkers along with corrupted police officers, fire fighters and so on still continue stalking, harrassing and torturing me covertly everyday in order to make me look like a person with “paranoia-schizophrenia.” However, now no one close to me believes that I am insane. Merely some naive people who do not know me well seem to be deceived by the organized stalkers’ disinformation that I am a schizophrenic. Thus, I can inform the community of the government’s such an evil-doing although it took me years of patience to prove that I am rather a rational person compared with other people. From the next paragraph, I would like to further discuss the problems in mental disease medication. Also responding to the problematic circumstances of mental medicare, I will consider what I can and should contribute through my volunteer job in the last of the journals.

Bonner, the author of “Social Exclusion” articulates the nature of neuron itself, and explains complicating sytems of neurons to the details in chapter 7. Incidentally, last week I happened to study “neuroplasticity” simultaneously in another psychology class and Buddhism class. Neuroplasticity is the most recent big discovery in neuroscience which proved that ‘Mind can even change the structure of brain.” Therefore, when I saw some illustrations of neurons and synapse in chapter 7of Bonner’s book, I expected that he would also cover this hottest theory, neuroplsticity, in regard to maladaptive behaviors.

However, despite of abundant neuroscientific terms, he seems to avoid ascertation that mind can change brain. Rather, his conclusions as a medical doctor rely more on biological basis as the chapter title indicates “Neurobiological basis of maladaptive behaviours.” He mainly discusses how pharmacological therapy could possibly be effective on maladaptive behaviors. In fact, his stance looks in favor of pharmaseutical industry’s interest, which created huge controverses.

There are several issues pointed out as problems of biological basis medication on mental illnesses. First of all, for a commercial purpose, pharmaseutical companies interven with psychiatric diagnoses. Takahiro Tozaki, a well-known victim of organized stalking crime, recently updated his thesis in his website “Nihongo dewa shirasarenai seishin-igaku no uso” (The deception of psychiatry which is never reported in Japanese language). He analyzes the commercial aspect of the secret crime of organized stalking, citing a renowned American medical doctor, Marcia Angell’s work, “Once upon a time, drug companies promote drugs to treat diseases. Now it is often the opposite. They promote diseases to fit their drugs.” (Tozaki, 2009; Angell, 2004) According to Angell’s research, Eli Lily, an international pharmaseutical corporation, made up new name, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, for a women’s stressful state prior to menstrual. Their purpose was to promote the sale of Prozac, anti-depression medicine. The company merely changed the color of the pill, put the new name, Sarafem, instead of Prozac, and sold it for Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder with raised price. (Angell, 2004)

Secondly, due to rapid advance in neuroscience and development of technologies, each field of the mental problem studies has been too much specialized. Thus, “the various disciplines are becoming less accessible to researchers in other disciplines” as Bonner acknowledges (99). Consequently, the process of psyphiatrist’s diagnoses also became esoteric, which partly led to their fake diagnoses abused by immoral politicians. Concerning this issue, another worldly famous medical doctor, Thomas Szasz, once confessed:” Schizophrenia is so vaguely diagnosed that, in actuality, it is a term often applied to any kinds of behavior of which the speaker disapproves” (CCHR, 2012).

Thirdly, despite of the advance in scientific research on mental diseases, the true causes for maladaptive behaviors are atill undetermined. In other words, psychiatric studies are yet merely a cluster of hypotheses. Bonner implicitly admits this fact by expressing his ambiguous attitude in the sentences in his book. For example, he says: the study of molecular on mental health issues “are still yet to be elucidated” (116); deficiency in monoamine as a cause of depression “remains to be explored” (116); and biological processes of alcoholism “still need to be resolved” (118). Hence, a problem becomes clear that pharmaseutical corporations interfere with pharmacological therapy for their own interest, taking advantages of ambiguous conclusions of biological basis studies on mental problems.

  Lastly, even if some psychiatrists’ diagnoses are not faked, and assuming that pharmacological therapy does have an actual effect, there is still a problem. As Bonner explains, these medications are usually very expensive since its development involves expensive laboratory experiments. Thus, pharmacological treatments are often not available to economically disadvantaged people. Accordingly, socially excluded people are trapped in vicious circle.

Therefore, I would like to make contribution as a volunteer to socially excluded people. To support people in need without being paid, I write two blogs and join as editor a database blog, “Unprecedented Human Rights Violations.” In addition, I physically participate in volunteer work in the community. After all, sufferings of truly socially excluded people are hardly visible to the public. Shedding a light on the dark side of our society is my goal.

心と脳の問題

前回(#1)、私は精神疾病の偽診断をレポートした。私の経験と調査から判断して、政治家達が反対者を黙らせ、彼等の権力を維持し、市民の行動や考えをコントロールできるようにするために、精神科医達の統合失調症の捏造が利用されているのは現実である。実際、私が精神病院に収容された際、私がいつも聞かれたことは:「あなたは全然心を病んでいるように見えないが、何故ここにいるの?」という質問だった。なんなら、もっと“精神分裂”っぽく演技してあげたほうがいいかな、とも思った。そのほうが、私の置かれた複雑な状況をいちいち説明するより、面倒くさくないかもしれない、と。

そうはいっても、捏造された統合失調症者として地域で生活することは私にとっては良いことである。組織化されたストーキングは国際的な組織犯罪なので、米国でも同様に、腐敗した警官・消防官その他の者らが未だに私に対し毎日、陰湿に、ストーキングや嫌がらせして私を苦しめ、私が被害妄想系統合失調症者と見えるような工作を続けている。けれども現在私の身近な人で、私が精神異常と考えている人は誰もいない。ただ、私のことをよく知らず、また騙されやすい人達のなかに、組織化されたストーカーグループがばら撒く、私が精神異常だとの故意の誤報に欺かれている者がいるにすぎない。こうして私は、政府の悪質な行いについてコミュニティの他の人々に情報提供ができるようになった。ただし、私が他人と比べて、むしろ理性的な人間であるということを証明するのに数年の忍耐を要したのであるが。

さてこの稿に於いては、精神疾患医療の問題について更に検討したい。さらに、この問題に応え、私がクラスプロジェクトでのボランティア活動を通じて何ができそして寄与すべきかを考えていきたい。

 

『社会的疎外』の著者ボナーは、まず神経そのものの性質について明らかにし、また神経の複雑なシステムについて、第7章に詳述している。因みに先週私はたまたま 感情の心理学”“瞑想と科学の両クラスで同時に「神経可塑性」について学んだ。「神経可塑性」は最近の神経科学における大きな発見で、心は脳の構造さえ変えることが出来ることを証明したものである。故に私はボナーの本の7章の中でいくつかの神経とシナプスのイラストを見た時、この著者もまた、今話題の理論「神経可塑性」を、(社会的)不適合行為についての議論と絡めながら扱うのではないかと期待した。

然し、あふれんばかりの神経科学用語を用いながらも、著者は「心が脳を変えることが出来る」との断言を避けているようにみえる。むしろ彼の結論は神経生物学に基く不適合行為の考察という章タイトルが示すように、病理医として生物学的な根拠に、より信頼を置いている。著者が論じているのは、どのような薬物療法が不適合行為者の治療に効果が期待できるかが中心である。実は彼の立場は、製薬会社の利益に適うものであり、これが大きな論争を巻き起こすこととなった。

生物学に基づく精神疾病の薬物療法の問題として指摘されている、いくつかの論点がある。まず、製薬会社は商業目的で精神病診断に干渉している。組織的ストーキング犯罪の被害者として、よく知られたトザキタカヒロ氏は最近、彼のウェブサイトにおいて「日本語では知らされない精神医学の嘘」という論文を掲載した。彼は極秘犯罪としての組織的ストーキングを商業的側面から分析し、高名なアメリカの病理医マルシアエンジェルの著作から次のことを引用している。
