7. Psychologists also have a professional organization the American Psychological Association/APA
Edited on Fri Sep-26-08 10:42 PM by bobthedrummer
American Psychological Association/APA.

Some of these professionals are really crazy, some of them are criminals-just like in every profession there can be found renegades--but it's hard to find a profession with such influential rebels like Timothy Leary, John Mack, John Gittinger, Ernst Rudin, Jose DelGado, Sid Gottlieb, Louis "Jolly" West, Michael Aquino, Ewen Cameron and many others.


It's crazy to neglect US military and their families that need help as a result of their service-it's a crime to experiment on them, or any other American citizen, without informed consent--yet some psychiatrists and psychologists make a career of it along with pharmaceutical companies.

It's nuts.

Then there are psychological operations (PSYOPS), which are still illegal in the US, but, as former SecDef Rumsfeld admitted without explanation in February 2004 somehow PSYOPS that had targeted foreign populations had migrated to the US.

PSYOPS have always been a strategic part of war-President Truman authorized a Psychological Strategy Board in 1951 as part of the Cold War.

There's so much insanity and crazy stuff going on today, post your own insanity related topics in this collaborative DU thread.
