“Some people without brains do an awful lot of talking, don’t you think?”
― L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
If one looks behind the curtain there is not much there. Historical, political, economic and social analysis can all show how the construct that exists today came to be. This can be factually ascertained by simple reasoning and examination of the documentary evidence.
Any one of these analyses would reveal that the “PHP-blueprint” is a false-construct built on circumnavigation and obfuscation.
An evidence-based scrutiny of the literature would reveal it to be invalid and of little probative value. A public policy analysis would reveal the logical fallacies involved in trumpeting their positions including exaggerated rhetoric and fear mongering designed to inspire moral panics and exploit fears to further an underlying political agenda
Any critical analysis would reveal cherry picking. proof by anecdote, deceptive propaganda, double talk, contradictory, illogical and incomprehensible jabber, unprovable and un-disprovable statements and a panoply of logical fallacy.
These groups misrepresent, censor and suppress. They nit pick and split hairs. The concept of denial is not just used to force people into treatment and justify abuse during treatment but to suppress specific questions and deliberately avoid key facts.
So why are we not questioning this “authority?” They have been left alone and basically thrown in the backyard left to proliferate like feral cats.
We need anti-authoritarians and we need them now.
I need allies before the door closes for good. And that door may be closing a lot sooner than you think!

Question authority? That’s what we “Asperger’s” do automatically – it’s part of the ‘bullshit detector” that’s built into our “brain”. And what to we get for it? Diagnosed as “defective, disabled – subhuman.” There’s an entire quasi-medical industry whose function it is to make sure that “the social order” is enforced. I’ve dealt with the “religious dogma” of psychology most of my life because I’m considered to be abnormal – had my personality and positive attributes ‘pathologized’ – my intelligence demonized. I’ve been recklessly drugged with medications that made my life WORSE, but no one listens to a ‘human reject’ which is what you are once you’ve been “judged” by the incompetent “authorities” who have been sanctioned to condemn human behavior selectively and purposefully – just like old time religion.
Medicine? HAH! It’s one of the prime purveyor’s of social engineering in the U.S. I write a blog about Asperger’s – my message is directed at anyone who has been sucked into the autism industry conveyor belt: This is not science. These people are not legitimate authorities: these are profiteers. $$$ It’s all about power, control, Capitalism. You poor “victimized” physicians! Somewhere during my lifetime the “desire to help human beings” has been subsumed by GREED. It stinks.

This blog is precisely what you are talking about. Just because the writer is a physician does not mean he is granted impunity from what you have stated above.
So the good doc in question has undergone very much the same labelling subsequent pseudoscientific faith healing woo as treatment, lost a livelihood etc and because?
Well because the 12 step industry says so and will use whatever punitive illegitimate nonsense to feather the rehab nest.
There is nothing wrong with the author much like yourself it is only the corrupt systems that create the status quo.
Stand together not alone gone wild.

I recognize this: but the author is obviously a rare exception, and not the “object” of my comment other than being the individual who has put forth the topic. I do not know him personally; I am not about to blame him for the “system” nor excuse him from any complicity. It is a system created by and for the “medical” people who benefit and suffer from their creation. my post was meant to expand the number and type of people who are targets of this vicious application of illegitimate authority.
