Space: The Final Frontier

I got a call about a suspicious guy out at the airport. He was off in a part of the airport where civilians typically don't go, so I had visions of a) a terrorist with a ground-to-air missile, b) a drunk college kid with a laser pen to blind pilots, or c) a DUI who drove off into nowhere. Wrong, wrong and wrong.

I arrived to find Gregory, covered in mud, wandering around near a restricted area next to the runway. It was raining, windy and cold, but Gregory didn't seem to be affected.

Officer Cynical: "So, Gregory, what are you doing out here?"

Gregory: "I have a meeting out here."

Officer Cynical: "Oh? With whom?"

Gregory: "Some extraterrestrials. They're going to train me to fly their space ships."

Officer Cynical: "I see. And how did you get so muddy?"

Gregory: "I've been burying some stuff, and digging up some other stuff. Some stuff from my past."

Officer Cynical: "OK, well, maybe we can talk about that another time. How did you get out here in the first place?"

Gregory: "Well, something bad was going to happen at my apartment. My cell phone kept overheating, and I was having to spray it down to cool it off. I left a note with it, then came out here.

I decided to just leave well enough alone, got Gregory into my squad car, and called for an ambulance to haul him to the ER for an eval.

On the way to the hospital, Gregory told the ambulance crew that my partner and I weren't real cops. He could tell because our uniforms were different than the ones on the real cops he'd seen in the past.  This was actually pretty astute, because I found out later that a different agency had dealt with him the night before. He also revealed that he was being followed by the FBI, and they may have put explosives in his car.

The biggest surprise was that Gregory admitted he'd been diagnosed as schizophrenic, and had been prescribed a "bunch of medications" that he was no longer taking. Why? "Because I don't need them. Life is highs and lows, and you have to experience it all". How could I argue with that logic?

At the ER, Dr, St, Francis of Assisi asked me, "What's his story? Is he hurt or is he just completely nuts?" I couldn't think of a better diagnosis. Besides, he's the expert.

Regarding schizophrenia, I will let you in on the con job Officer Cynical. There are no brain chemical imbalances in the "schizophrenic", until he starts consuming the psychiatric medicines/drugs.

Then if he stops the medicines/drugs he has a withdrawal reaction, from not having the drug. The withdrawal reaction is taken as evidence they are ill and need medicine. Gregory most likely was crazy from the drugs he had previously taken or been forced to take.

Circular logic that is the same as the illness of a junkie that needs more "medicine" for his withdrawal from dope.

Now you could say psychiatric drugs are medicine, but you would have to prove the schizophrenics brain was damaged in the first place, they don't.

The whole thing is a multi-billion dollar confidence trick to control people who have not broken the law, but are behaving "wrong".

"Why doesn't anyone stop it?" you might ask.
Do you know any rich people? I mean really rich. The rich people have their money invested in pharmaceutical companies. The rich also usually write the laws that govern the land.

Any flaws in my story? Feel free to ask questions, I will check back.

the Legend of the “Chemical Imbalance”

Could you please explain the connection between your citation and your point? I don't get it. By my interpretation, that's not saying that there's no such thing as schizophrenia, which is what you appear to be saying; it's just saying that things are a lot more complicated than "take the drugs and it'll fix your problems". It even says at the end that medicine can be helpful.

My citation links to a doctor who says there are no chemical imbalance, is to prove my claim of no chemical imbalance . Where the public believes in chemical imbalances as a justification to willingly take, or force people to take psychiatric drugs(medicine). The psychiatrist is of course, selling his profession of psychiatry.

In real, physical disease medicine exists to treat the physical problem, but in mental illness there is no medicine because there is no physical defect to correct.

Legal drug dealers do not want to stop issuing their legal drugs.
To remove someone from society for fear of what they might do (something wrong) is not medicine.

"They don't look removed, they have their freedom", you say. That is because you have not taken the psychiatric drugs yourself.

The psychiatric drugs keep the person from performing work, good or bad, so it fulfills the prophesy of "they are sick".

The money
18 Billion dollars. Synopsis. Too many people. Only the leper who can't fight back should be (forced) taking the drugs.
