(Bruce Levine)

‘degrees and credentials are primarily badges of compliance’

‘those with extended schooling have lived for many years in a world where one routinely conforms to the demands of authorities. Thus, for many MDs and PHDs, people different from them who reject this attentional and behavioural compliance appear to be from another world- a diagnosable one.’

‘They fear that compliance with such illegitimate authorities will cause them existential death’

‘what better way to maintain the status quo than to view inattention, anger, anxiety and depression as biochemical problems of those who are mentally ill rather than normal reactions to an increasingly authoritarian society.’

‘We are now in another dark age, only the institutions have changed.’

‘So Authoritarians financially marginalize those who buck the system, they criminalize anti-authoritarianism, they psychotherapize anti-authoritirains, and they market drugs for their ‘cure’ ‘
