When the Cold War began to wind down, a bright, active, strong population was no longer needed. It was necessary to weaken and divert and have a tsunami of artysy-craftsy mental cracksy.
Every form of behaviour could get a label, everyone could be analysed and people would spend their lives running behind their neurosis, and making psycho-therapists rich.
Unlike a medical condition which can be diagnoised and treated, the artsy-craftsy mental cracksy, being an invention, can not be easily corrected.
It diverts the ‘sufferer’ , gives excuses and explanations why they can’t do this or that, and builds walls they can’t climb over.
Creating self-limitations is the easiest method of disqualification.
