Fear is one of the most powerful motivators of behavior. Throughout history there are examples of people altering their behavior because of their fear. Jesus was crucified because the Romans feared his message to the “rabble”. Saint Joan of Arc was burned at the stake because she dared to challenge the authority of the rulers of Normandy in 1431. The Spanish Inquisition, where thousands of people were tortured and killed for their beliefs, was started in 1478 and continued to terrorize Europe until 1834.
The Civil War in the United States happened because some people thought it was their right to decide the fate of others because of their skin color; the Nazis weaponized their own brand of fear to use as a force of evil throughout Europe.
History is full of countless incidents of a few elites using fear to control the masses who must be kept subservient. When people are fearful, they lose the ability to think rationally and choose the path of least resistance, regardless of the consequences to their personal freedom. But fear can be a useful emotion as well. It’s a survival instinct to get away from a big black mamma bear who is charging you to protect her cub. One learns to competently drive a car so one is not fearful on the road.
However, when fear becomes an addiction then it’s a burden, and hinders rather than assists one’s survival. According to the Harvard Health Blog of Sept 12, 2021:
“Addiction is a relationship between a person and an object or activity. With addiction, the object or activity becomes increasingly more important while previously important activities become less important. … There are a number of effective treatments for addiction, including … medications, …”
The Treatment of Choice
Ah yes, the medication “treatment” is of course the preferred route for practitioners like psychiatrists, because it’s really easy to do. Give the person or child some psychiatric drugs (to which they often become addicted) and keep that individual on the psychiatric drug merry-go-round as long as possible. Or until the insurance runs out.
The quantities of such drugs being handed out that cause dependency on a chemical concoction while doing nothing to reduce a person’s fear of his environment boggles the mind. For reliable information on those numbers, here is a link to current statistics on psychiatric drug use which is updated regularly.
One has to wonder who is behind the emphasis on dangerous drugs becoming the go-to “solution” for people who are victims of addictions and other types of emotional problems.
Dr. Joseph Mercola, a world-renowned physician and leader in finding humane and effective solutions for society’s ills and troubles, has been exposing psychiatric abuses for decades. He writes this:
“Can there be doctors, psychiatrists, drug companies and ethically challenged business operators who look upon addiction and decide that profit can be made from that affliction?
The mother lode of gold for Big Medicine and Big Pharma is when ‘treatment’ results in patients being just as addicted when they leave a center as when they arrived. The patient is a patient for life. The cartels pushing the dope aren’t based in Mexico or Colombia, but rather in swank multi-national corporations based in major American and European cities. It’s a tragic story of greed and human destruction, overseen by smiling, well-groomed executives and doctors.”
