New Study: Fear of the Government is a Recognizable Mental Illness; Afflicted Should Be Committed to Mental Institutions

New Study: Fear of the Government is a Recognizable Mental Illness; Afflicted Should Be Committed to Mental Institutions:

It’s becoming apparent that anyone who does not go along with the status quo, refuses to dismantle our Constitution, believes that alternate theories to government official stories are possible, or outright attacks the policies of our government (whether left or right) is a danger not only to the nation, but to themselves. While no drug has yet been approved for the condition by the FDA, it is likely only a matter of time before prescription medications for a new disorder – Anti-Government Phobia (AGP) – become available from your local pharmacist in order to treat the novel disease recently identified by psychiatrists.

It sounds like a joke out of Mad Magazine – but it isn’t. According to a new study, those who disapprove of the government or believe in conspiracy theories should be considered mentally ill and it’s recommended by mental health professionals that they be committed to a mental institution for help and re-education.

A disturbing piece was published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry. In it is a study that claims people who are anti-government or believe in conspiracies around the government are suffering from a condition called Anti-Government Phobia (AGP). Meaning that anyone who has a distaste for the government, the way it operates, its polices and believes there is a particular force behind it, must be mentally ill. The implications here are frightening, if you feel the government is doing something that will harm you and that it is a part of a bigger plan, you are sick. Thus the government can respond as though you are a a threat.

This is what the study actually claims:

“This study conclusively demonstrates that unfounded fear of government is a recognizable mental illness, closely related to paranoid schizophrenia. Anti-Government Phobia (AGP) differs from most mental illnesses, however, in that it is highly infectious and has an acute onset. Symptoms include extreme suspiciousness, conspiracy-mongering, delusional thought patterns, staunch “us against them” mentality, withdrawal from reality, and often religious fanaticism.”

The study also gave a suggestion on how to deal with someone who is considered to have Anti-Government Phobia:

“Having the patient committed to a qualified mental health institution is the best option for family and loved ones. For this reason, all psychiatrists and family physicians should be provided with educational materials which will help them recognize the various symptoms and warning signs accompanying onset.”
