    Thanks for another great video mate. I’ll most definitely take a look at War on The Weak. Eugenics is relatively new to me but in the short time I’ve been looking into the subject, a lot of dots have started to connect. Your discussions with Patrick Wood were both intriguing and a little scary to be honest, mainly due to what is happening in my home state of South Australia right now. I’ve linked an article that gives you run down and I’d be interested to know how or if you feel this ties into what yourself and Patrick were discussing. Cheers mate look forward to the next one.

    P.s Richard Kuklinski would be my answer to your question.

    Q4C:

    “Do you believe that the non-agression principle in a voluntarist society would logically imply open borders?”

    Kind regs from Woodenshoesland

    • mkey says:

      Do we assume all of the imagined bordering societies have adopted the non-aggression principle? Either way, in such an environment travel would be a lot more natural, as it used to be not so long ago.

      • Richard Ran says:

        That’s a good one, mkey!

        If I could edit it in, the question would entail the two scenarios you suggest. One in which bordering societies have adopted the NAP and one in which they haven’t.

        Now let’s hope the amended #Q4C makes it to one of the upcoming episodes 😉

        • mkey says:

          I’m not 100% sure I understand what would a “closed” border even mean. Open borders would result in free movement of the people; no immigrants, just people; no border patrol, fences or “technical barriers”; no deportations etc.

          What would be diametrically opposite to this? What we have now are fuzzy borders at best. Most important aspect here is that without the gubment there would be no entity to make claims on sovereignty and impose ownership on something created a long long long time before said authoritarian entity even surfaced.

          What I guess it would boil down to in the long run is private border control posies, if the situation went in an undesired direction.

          • Richard Ran says:

            You beat me to it. I was going to clarify my own question along your line of thought. Well, more or less. This is what I wrote on Notepad:

            Not even sure if “open borders” would be a meaningful phrase at all in a voluntarist society. The term itself seems intimately associated with nation states or, more to the point, with the modern welfare state. Without its policies of extortion and redistribution, I think immigration wouldn’t be the issue that it is today.

  3. VoiceOfArabi says:

    Hello James,

    I must congratulate you on a brilliant Q4C session. I really enjoyed it and it is such brilliant format that leaves me with a ton of knowledge and relaxed at the same time.

    My only suggestion or request is: Can you do it every fortnight?? (by do it i mean Q4C 🙂 )

    I know you are busy with big projects, but Q4C is very broad and very appealing.

    Keep up the good work, and you are doing great!

  4. Beau Boeye says:

    Regarding mind control, I would suggest checking out Jeff DeRiso’s series ‘Mind Hack’ over at https://www.newsbud.com/category/mind_hack_with_jeff_deriso/; he goes into detail about these technologies. Specifically, I believe the episodes from April 21st & 28th (2017) directly cover this topic.

  5. danmanultra says:

    Thank for your information/explanation on police in a free society. It is more satisfactory than most responses I receive on similar topics. Free society doesn’t mean Utopian naivety (belief that all humans will come together and play nice): it means taking power from a centralized gang and putting into your own hands.

    I really like the idea of free market cops. But I also believe that an oppressor with enough money/resources could also use this free market to build the “best”/most powerful police force. It seems as long as oppressive peoples exist they would and could find ways to take power. Would a free humanity be willing to fight a war for their freedom?

    • tyler.c says:

      The way to change the world is by changing yourself constantly and shirking “beliefs” or codified belief systems with consistency. The real question is, “Would YOU, the free human, be willing to fight “a war” for YOUR freedom.” Everything else is less important.

      You can imagine scenarios where the faceless villain amalgamates power and money and force and violence. Why do you imagine this scenario? Is it your idea? Or has it been placed there carefully by someone/thing else? You see, the reality we live in is designed by the individual. Make sure that individual is YOU.

      Recently, I have struggled to explain myself to my wife in this very arena of discussion as I have “woken up” this past Oct. and am still learning how to live in this new world. Utopian/Perfect society is a myth that is continually packaged anew and sold and resold every second of every day. Make your own reality, however flawed, and bask in the freedom of it. NO ONE will ever be able to rob/beat/kill it out of you. Freedom lies between the ears but changes everything inside and around you.

      I hope this helps to lift you out of the “what-ifs” and into the more “living” freedom that is right around the corner for every person out there if only they were to open their hand and take it.

      • danmanultra says:

        I also primarily believe in freedom of the mind and soul. I know a man can be chained physically, but still be free in spirit. I also know when you discuss big changes in living that there are always things to consider though. My first comment was not to dissuade anyone from action. I want to find how to live as freely as possible, and I wish that for anyone who also wishes it. But I am a planner and so I like to consider anything before jumping into it, and I hope to see what others have experienced and learned in these areas. I don’t believe in any human made utopia, and I also don’t believe in a boogeyman always waiting. But being prepared for difficulties ahead seems a prudent exercise.

        Also, to reject “reality” because so many men lie does not necessarily seem the right course. We can see and feel and use our own logic and minds to deduce reality around us. How else do you combat falsehoods? I want real truth and reality, not my own constructed one nor one constructed by another man.

        • tyler.c says:

          I understand you as well as I can here in this setting. I enjoyed your response.

          I guess I question the logic of the hunt for “real” truth and reality. Not to get too deep down the philosophical rabbit hole: the definition of the “real” is due to the interpretation of things and events the individual experiences. They are one and the same.

          I also am a planner. I wish you well in that endeavor. Getting better at “doing” all the time is tough!

          • danmanultra says:

            I believe there are objective truths and an objective reality. Otherwise there would be no such thing as falsehood or lies to begin with. Reality and existence are things that can be hard to fully comprehend and must be evaluated, but it does not mean there is no answer at all. I am personally a follower of Jesus Christ. I believe His way is the best way to live. To love others as ourselves. He warned against the lies of the world, and now I have seen with my own eyes and heard with my own ears how true that is. And the Truth will set you free. And I now feel more free than ever.

            • Ragnar says:

              A free society, the way it was described in the video (the larger video), as well as what you all are discussing is something I’ve unknowingly wanted for at least 35 years. Or since I realized the world doesn’t care for or consider individuals. Obviously there will be as many definitions of what such a society might look like as there are individuals discussing it. But to me, a free society is one where everyone takes responsibility for their actions and act to improve their life and the lives of those around them. I saw a Lamestream news report on that town in Mexico where the residents created a militia force to fight the cartel’s. Because the police and government have been corrupted by the cartel’s. A community acting to safeguard its self seems like an embodiment, an aspect of a free society. I’ve also been recognizing the benefits of a decentralized community. One where the residents make up the government and its associated agencies. One that can exist independently from a national or even regional authority. Sadly, such a community would be labeled “cultish” thanks to some bad examples and the media’s proactive propaganda. But I think such a community would be optimal in raising children and even as an enviornment where elders could feel both useful and valued.

              Most countries would reject such a community I imagine. But a free, civil society such as this would be no threat to neighbors or even a state or nation. Provided they are let to govern themselves. The scene of responsibility and the knowledge that “your” individual part in the society is useful and appreciated is very foreign to what I have experienced. But I think the satisfaction and even joy of being a part of something that isn’t corrupt and isn’t inherently evil would be wonderful to experience.

              Sorry if this seems disjointed. There are so many aspects that go together when thinking of something like this. It’s enticing.

    Dear James,

    Thanks for all you do which is greatly appreciated.

    I have followed a few YouTube videos by Edwin Black (author of the book you showed us “War Against the Weak”) and found them very interesting. I wish however to make you and others aware of his very pro-zionist position in which he promotes a warped and false narrative about the history of Palestine and some aspects of the Holocaust, even trying to place blame on the Arabs for the Holocaust.

    I believe, a quick review (on Wikipedia)of the Zionist organizations, who have given him awards is indicative of whose line he is toeing.

    Of course this may have nothing to do with the book you are reading, but caveat emptor.

    Link below is an example of some misleading info he has promoted in the past.

    All the best to you and your family.

  7. ADDspeaker says:

    In regard to the debate on Voluntarism and the video clip you showed, I wanted to add something to this debate. I grew up in Denmark, where we have strict gun control socialized medicine, free healthcare and free education, combined with high taxation (40-60%) for personal taxes and (20-30%) on corporate taxes. We have well functioning police with a very low level of corruption and low levels of abuse as well. Our democracy is based on a 2% minimum for getting ‘mandates’ in our parliament and no single party usually have enough mandates to rule unilateral, so coalition governments are the norm. We have an official very tough policy on refugees, which in reality in far more liberal, than most other countries, e.g. Denmark have received 20,000 refugees from Syria, and 10,000 from Iraq and 5,000 from Afghanistan, just mention a few. Today, non-Danish nationals is around 12% of our 5,7 million inhabitants.

    Our current government is strongly facing to the right (and heading even further right), and we are members of EU, NATO, UN and all the rest. We have been in every war from The Balkans, Gulf War I, Afghanistan and Iraq, actually fighting with boots on the ground and with air power in Libya and Syria.

    My point is, that it is possible to have a government and retain civil liberties, education and healthcare. AND still be able to be in solidarity with both Western Powers and Christian values.

    Personally I am not religious or poised to any particular ideology (other than facts and science), and I pride myself as being self-taught, open minded and progressive, so I just wanted to ‘show the other side of the coin’ in regards to Voluntarism and Anarchy, namely an actual implementation of sound democratic values as we have here in Scandinavia.

    Denmark have been chosen to be the happiest people in the world, more than once, which is due to low corruption, social services and freedom of assembly and speech.

    BUT this is far from being a perfect society, although we have low crime, and less than 20 homocides annually, our biggest treat is the ‘fear of the others’ which is touted through racism and self absorption in always being right.

    I hope this makes any sense 🙂

    • Richard Ran says:

      Hi Peter,

      Cheers from Holland and thnx for your story. Sounds like a bit of Good News Next Week to cheer up all of us freedom loving folk, who unfortunately find themselves trapped in democracy.

      Your account of Danish civil liberties might as well have been written by a Dutchie about the Netherlands. We’ve been part of NATO since time immemorial and we too — as the docile vassal state we are — have been willingly complicit in many of neo-con Washington’s criminal wars spreading of democracy. As for civil liberties, well, we too have a benevolent system of income tax that most of us happily contribute to, for the common good. We prefer not to call it extortion of property by means of centralized force, because that thought would make us unhappy and we’d rather keep up with our Danish friends.

      Last but certainly not least, we also have — at the behest of our globalist overlords in Brussels and Washington — accepted our fair share of those who seek to enrich our culture with some refreshingly non-Western values when it comes to the treatment of women, freedom of speech and the right to freely (dis)associate with whomever one likes. Well, not all of us did. I’m ashamed by some of my compatriots who campaigned to shut our nation’s borders (as if we still had them) and refer said refugees to, well.. Denmark.

      They even made a very expensive promotional video about your country as the place to go instead of the Netherlands. Go figure!

      • Ragnar says:

        My great grandfather came to America from the Netherlands. So I learned a lot about that area growing up. I’ve also seen interviews and statistics showing Denmark as one of the countries with the happiest populations. I can understand why. The Netherlands liberal view on drugs is something that could solve many problems in America (I believe). Peter Christ talks about this at length.

        A question to you both; is it possible to persuade the government not to involve your country in NATO’s wars, if a majority of the citizens desired it? And unfortunately, I have to bring up Durtroix. The organization that uses children for various sick desires. What I’ve read about it, even though a massive public outcry against it with demonstrations and protests was carried out, it was by and large swept under the rug. Or at least no real attempt was made to discover how high up within society the organization has infected. In the US and the U.K. It’s well understood that the political class as well as many “elite” are involved in these practices. My understanding of what happened comes from reading accounts, which are few honestly. So if I’ve misunderstood, or am lacking in what I know about it, feel free to enlighten me. I bring it up to discuss how such a thing can go on in a society that on the surface seems to benevolent, so open? The recent video interview with Ronald Bernard shows that these practices continue to blackmail individuals, to corrupt them.

        In America, there’s a sense, or a social pressure to “not” become involved in things someone might see or notice. But to me that seems counter to what a free society would want or need. At least when it comes to the welfare of defenseless people or children. It has certainly contributed to many bad things as the horrible crime rate in places like Chicago plainly shows. But where does the brothers keeper urge stop? How far should it go? I’d be interested in hearing anyone’s opinion on the matter.

        • Richard Ran says:

          Hi Ragnar,

          As a Dutch aboriginal, I guess my ancestors to the nth degree lived happily in this coastal area we now call Netherlands. Speaking about “happiness”, let’s remind ourselves of what that means when the United Nations puts that into a statistic. For the sake of convenience, here’s the first line in the wiki-description:

          “The World Happiness Report is a measure of happiness published by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network.”

          Several red flags here, easily spotted. So let’s cut a long story short.
          The proclaimed new economic paradigm of “Gross National Happiness” is about as good an indicator of what it pretends to indicate as the useless Keynesian construct of GDP.

          The state is our enemy, the superstate an even greater one, and “sustainability” is newspeak for global social control by the powers that shouldn’t be.

          As for the Dutroux-case. That took place in Wallonia, the French-speaking part of Belgium. It might as well have been the Manson murders from a Dutch perspective. For Dutch elitist abuse, look no further than our royal house. The elites are sick, perverted and power-hungry in any society, open or not, and government power is used to cover their tracks. Another good reason to abolish the state.

          That however, was not the subject at hand. I think Peter wanted to show that as a citizen one doesn’t need to abolish the state in order to be counted among the “happy people” by the UN. One of the things measured as a proxy for this NWO-happiness is “trust”, defined among other things as the perceived trust in government.

          If I am to believe the UN social engineers, Dutch respondents are rather trusty of government. That would be appalling. I myself am quite a bit more optimistic, in the sense that I know many of my countrymen to still have a healthy distrust of organized politics at a national level and even more so — to the point of open hostility — of politics at the supranational level. Many of us hate the EU and we want out.
          Too few of us hate NATO, I’m sorry to say, so that might provide an answer to your question. For it is of course possible to persuade our government by means of public opinion not to participate in NATO’s wars. In fact, the Dutch government did exactly that in 2003 when the Anglo-American empire invaded Iraq.

          So yes, it’s possible but to what end? It did nothing to stop the war. Our government still supported the war politically and in so doing provided diplomatic cover for American aggression, the way all trusty European vassal states do.

          If there’s one thing we should distrust, it is the false religion of statism with its political idolatry. Many of us in Europe are political hypocrites, looking with amusement and disgust to the presidential selection in the US, while still voting for the same kind of crooks over here, since “hey, it could be far worse”. What we as a people need but lack most is faith and belief. Faith in our natural rights and the belief that these rights and the freedom from oppression they engender are worth fighting for.

          Cheers from Amsterdam,
          Richard

          • Ragnar says:

            HI Richard, you know, I think I was fooled by that story I saw on how “happy” people were. It sucks to admit that they got me, but I think they did, hah. They interviewed a few citizens who all seemed content and satisfied. But I imagine they hand picked who appeared on camera, perhaps even coaching them on what to say (it wouldn’t surprise me). And I totally get how a citizens actual happiness could differ from the UN statistic.

            In terms of there being two Belgium’s. I knew that because I have a friend here who grew up in the French speaking portion. We have very similar views on government and authority and social issues. Although she does tend to trust what’s said in the Lamestream media, which I absolutely don’t. It’s good to know that people there aren’t just blindly following the obvious agendas and sensationalized stories, the propaganda.

            It would certainly take a change in the mindset of the population to achieve something like a free, (real) sustainable community. But honestly I don’t think it would be as difficult as many “experts” or politicians would suggest. I think the same people who think if the truth were to come out about UFO’s (whatever that truth may be), that there’d be panic in the streets. They are the same people that would say a free society couldn’t exist, or its beyond the 99%’s ability to achieve. We of course recognize that governments and their co-conspirators, the Mockingbird media have had decades to put social and ideological hurdles in place to prevent such realizations from reaching many of the public. As well as the fact that, here in the US, “they” have no problem suiciding or otherwise eliminating anyone who threatens their hegemony 😐 .

            • Richard Ran says:

              Yes Ragnar, we’re in this together. Thank you for your reply.

              Richard

              P.s.: hope our friend from Denmark will rejoin this exchange. Peter, if you read this please feel free to respond/elaborate.

              • ADDspeaker says:

                Ragnar, Richard, as previous explained I’m new to the site and do not receive any notifications on replies etc, so I apologise for my lack of response!

                Ragnar, I can refer to Richards comments and I agree with them 100% and can confirm that Denmark have acted, experienced and remembered exactly as Richard describes for NL, to the comma, in fact!

                Regarding the ‘Happiness’ thing, I was trying to make a point as Richard says, that you can have trust in the government (primarily in the whole corruption issue, which is a major part of the evaluation in the Happiness Survey from the UN) and that it is possible to have individual freedoms AND socialized healthcare – co existing.

                Another reason for the ‘Happiness’ is our free educational system, which actually provides everyone, regardsless of social background, ethnicity and socio-economic status – of receiving a world class public education – which in turn is responsible for the relatively large group of ‘upward mobile’ citizens (which I myself is included in), where we through higher education are giving the opportunity to ‘move up in the world’.

                BUT – may we should look for the ‘Happiness’ of the Danish people in our use of Anti-Depressants 🙂 We’re at 5th place in consumption behind USA, Iceland, Australia and Canada, and if you combine our social welfare system with high drug-induced happiness, maybe we find the ‘perfect combo’ for citizen happiness equilibrium 🙂

      • ADDspeaker says:

        Greetings Amsterdam and thanks for the comment!

        I too agree that DK and NL have a very similar culture and social system and most importantly – we both love Van Basten and Cannabis 🙂

        Regarding the border’s issue, I am personally ashamed on behalf of my country and I have written extensively on that subject on my blog. Especially about the case of the Danish Government buying a full page ad in a Lebanese Newspaper, where they listed all the reasons for NOT seeking asylum in Denmark, in order to deter people from trying to seek asylum here. This action was taken by the majority party in the ‘right’ coalition called ‘Venstre’ (which ir-logically means LEFT in Danish – go figure?’

        Al Jazeera had this post on the topic: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2015/09/denmark-advert-lebanon-newspapers-warns-refugees-150907225146384.html

        Furthermore the action of ‘stripping refugees from they valuables, when trying to enter Denmark to seek asylum, was another low point in our history. Check out Washington Post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2016/05/25/danish-police-officers-can-seize-valuables-from-some-refugees-so-why-arent-they-doing-it/?utm_term=.60907446df38

        Both cases are closely linked to internal Danish power struggles between right-winged parties on who could get more extreme in their views and actions, in order to persuade the ‘paralysed & indoctrinated Danish public’ into an acute state of national xenophobia, which they unfortunately have succeeded in.

        Since I do not engage in politics on any side of the ideologies, but strictly adhere to basic human rights instead, I find it despicable that one would use people in deep distress (e.g. Syrian Refugees) to drive an national agenda.

        Furthermore, I have been combing through the National Danish Statistics and have on multiple occasions, found objective proof of the impact of refugees on our national economy to be vastly different, than that from the publications from the government.

        Last year, I discovered that the Ministry of Social Affairs, had turned down almost all of the Danish Iraq/Afghan veterans, when they applied for early retirement due to PTSD and that the refugees from The Middle East and Afghanistan where receiving these benefits, based on PTSD. What struck me was that both the veterans and the refugees had experienced the same wars, in the same areas, but seemingly did not receive the same ground for evaluation.

        Cases like this, is what enrages the public, which is totally understandable, but what the public do not understand (or wish to recognise) is that they are being ‘played’ by the government, who have created a whole string of ‘self fulfilling prophecies’ so that they can put the blame on the refugees.

        Just another example on the manipulation that’s all around us and which the NOT ‘Open Minded – Critical Thinking’ members of the public, are taking for fact.

        The video is hilarious and I haven’t seen it before, so thanks a million for that, Richard!.

        • Richard Ran says:

          Hi Peter,

          Can’t reply to your other response in the thread above in which you make it abundantly clear that once again Denmark has beaten Holland by an even wider margin when it comes to the use of AD drugs. In this field (SSRI drug use) it is of course and once again “America First”, which reminds me of another hilarious clip that you might or might not have seen (America First, Netherlands Second?”).

          https://youtu.be/ELD2AwFN9Nc

          Anyway, it’s from the same people who did the don’t come to the Netherlands, try Denmark clip. Of course they lied about Kopenhagen being the home of the prophet, since it’s actually the home of Dutch admiral Michiel de Ruyter (statue somewhere in the city) who played his part in the Dutch liberation of the Danes from Swedish aggression.

          Cheers from Amsterdam,

            Rijkard, the video went straight to my playlist on ADDspeaker called ‘New World Disorder’ 🙂

            Swarte Pieter, I just remember that I’ve experienced that once, while on a business trip in NL, ages ago. I was quite surprised by it and I would have tought that it had been banned by now, just like we here in Denmark cannot sing “Little Black Sambo’ a children’s song about Africa and like Pippi have been ‘redacted’ https://www.theguardian.com/books/2011/nov/09/pippi-longstocking-books-racism

            Re: Drugs, which is my specialty, since I write about ADHD in Adults on my blog, and one of the key battlegrounds are the ‘War on ADHD drugs’ that many Danes have been fighting for years.

            I was diagnosed while I lived in Los Angeles, at age 40, with ADD, and I got into medical treatment immediately, which made a very big difference for me, in my life.

            Returning to Denmark, I found that almost no adults were diagnosed nor medicated, which I then began examining to root cause of. I showed that the National Institute of Health in Denmark, was still using guidelines on treatment, that was at least 10 years behind current research and renewed guidelines.

            So I educated myself in reading Scientific Studies and created a network of ADHD scientists around the world, with whom I could discuss their findings and their research and I must say that I am amazed of the level of helpfulness (and respect for my autodidact education), that these people have shown me (and still do), among them the world’s foremost researcher in the past 40 years on ADHD research, who have helped my make petitions and repeals of Danish Court decisions on the terms and benefits for people with ADHD, in Denmark.

            Back to the point (ADHD – you know ,,,), What I also did, was to examine the use of AD and Anxiety medication consumption, in adults, and I made a study that proved that as more and more adults got diagnosed with ADHD, the number of people on AD and Anxiety drugs was declining – in perfect alignment, I mean 1:1 – it was amazing to see. Later I realised that a vast group of around 150,000 adults in Denmark alone, had been (mis)treated for depression and anxiety, which are common side-effects of UNTREATED ADHD, so in the end it all made sense.

            Now we have seen a massive increase in adults between 25-45 years that have been diagnosed and treated for ADHD, which in turn have reduced the number of criminal convictions (before 35-40% of all inmates had undiagnosed ADHD) as well as a decline in substance abuse (where undiagnosed ADHD normally account for 50% of all heroin addicts and where 20-25% of all adults with ADHD are alcoholics).

            So to sum it up, like the borders of nations are more ‘in our head’ I’ve realised that our assumptions of ADHD just being a kid’s disease was ‘also just an idea in our head’.

            My hope is that the whole race, nationality, ethnicity, mental disorders etc. divisional borders between people of society, can slowly be replaced by understanding, compassion and respect instead. Call me a naïve, but I still combat for it.

            Here an example of what I’ve been fighting, these past couple of years:

              Reading the posts about ADHD, and ADD, I wanted to ask a question. I’m interested in learning how the information differs between Europe and the US when it comes to these conditions. Here in the states, people aren’t encouraged to question why so many people are being diagnosed with, and given drugs to manage these conditions. Is it the same in Europe? I attended elementary school (grades K-6th) in the 1970’s. During that entire time I only remember one child who had what we now call ADHD. We had a couple of kids with learning issues, but that number was less then 10 in a year. My theory is a substantial increase in the use of additives and chemicals in foods as well as unacknowledged side effects of vaccines, or ingredients that make up vaccines. The phenomenon of kids being allergic to things like peanuts, milk etc.. Is something I NEVER heard of until (I believe) the 1990’s. Of course that is just my opinion. But I’d like to know how European society sees things like ADD and ADHD. What causes them and why the numbers have grown so much over the recent years?

              • ADDspeaker says:

                Ragnar,

                That’s a really great question, thanks for that!

                THE SHORT ANSWER:

                Prevalence in children 4 – 16 years in 9.1% in the US population.
                Prevalence in children 4 – 16 years is between 5.8% and 16.6% in the non-US population.

                A recent study suggests that “if national prevalence is below 7%, you are under-diagnosing and if it is above 7%, you are over-diagnosing”. (can’t find link right now, but this is fact).

                “There are more diagnosed children with ADHD in the US, than in the EU, and that is due to a) Differences in diagnosis, b) Knowledge of the illness, c) Differences in culture and/or ethnicities, genetics and biology. Also there is more interaction between the doctors and Big Pharma in the US (advertising, training etc), than what we see in the EU, were instructions for use of medication is controlled by government and science, not industry-driven. Finally, it is a simple fact, that ADHD (and mental illness, per se) is very stigmatised in the EU, especially among immigrants, but also in the general public, so many parents do not wish their children to be diagnosed, for fear of rejection, loss of public standing etc.”

                These are MY deductions, but it is based on 5 years of research in the topic 🙂

                THE LONG ANSWER:

                1. In the US we use the DSM-V standard for diagnose and in The EU we use the WHO’s ICD-10 diagnose system. Basically they are same, but there are some differences in the number (and variance) of the symptoms, that you would have to present, to be eligible for a clinical diagnosis.

                2. Before 2000, many of us were misdiagnosed as dyslexic, feeble minded or of having a low intelligence. Back then it was called DAMP, but in 2000 it was redefined and the new terms ADD and ADHD were provided instead. ADD was basically just ADHD without the H (without hyperactivity), and that is basically what ICD-10 still withholds to. But DSM-V was re-written in 2013 to redefine the criterium for ADHD.

                It was now all called ADHD, but with 3 subtypes (or presentations as they call it):

                A) Combined presentation – “all three core features are present and ADHD is diagnosed when ≥6 symptoms of hyperactivity/impulsivity and ≥6 symptoms of inattention have been observed for ≥6 months”.

                B) Predominantly inattentive presentation – “diagnosed if ≥6 symptoms of inattention (but <6 symptoms of hyperactivity/impulsivity) have persisted for ≥6 months".

                C) Predominantly hyperactive/impulsive presentation – "diagnosed if ≥6 symptoms of hyperactivity/impulsivity (but more diagnosed persons

                3. Major differences:
                a) Availability of knowledge and treatment is higher in the US.
                b) Wider criteria in the US, than in the EU, for diagnostic
                c) Big Pharma eyeing big business in ADHD (and therefore marketing was upped for health professionals
                d) Environmental influences, like bacterial influences during pregnancy, exposure to lead and life-style issues (drug abuse, alcohol etc.)

                ADHD is 70% genetic and 30% neurobiological, so most are born with the ADHD genes (50-80% genetic inheritance from parents), and most develop ADHD in childhood. The 30% of the rest have been “polluted” either during pregnancy or within the first 3 years of their life, causing developmental issues in the brain (longer time to physically mature).

                So it can be said that

                “ADHD is a illness, not a disease. You were born with ADHD and you will die with ADHD”

                The reasoning for that is that a disease cannot be cured, ADHD cannot be cured only managed with medication and behavioural modification training.

                Think of it as “ADHD is the Diabetes of the Brain”, and as Diabetics needs Insuline, persons with ADHD needs Amphetamine (or the like) to manage their illness.

                The problem with ADHD, is that the brain do not create enough dopamine to ‘connect’ the brain, we are born with a low level of natural dopamine (e.g. 20% of normal), and when we administer amphetamine, this increases the brains production of dopamine, thus alleviating many of the worst symptoms (lack of inhibition, emotional self-regulation and ‘foresigt’). What amphetamine DO NOT do,when you have ADHD, is give any euphoric feeling (since we begin at 20% dopamine and maybe get up to around 80-90% of normal). In ‘normal’ people, the begin at 100% and add more, which brings them into an euphoric state.

                This is also why it is safe to use with children, from 3 years and up. Amphetamine is a short term acting drug and it will be used by the brain and do not cause any permanent changes to the brain. It like taking a headache pill, it relieves the acute pain, but cannot remove the cause fo the pain.

                There are more than 30,000 scientific articles on PubMed on ADHD, and most on drugs and their effect on children and all of them have cleared this for use in children. Most common side effects are lack of appetite, trouble falling a sleep and other minor effects.

                This article, from the National Institute of Mental Health (US), is comparing US and non-US prevalence (and more) in diagnostics and treatment of ADHD, worldwide. (NIMH is a trusted source since they have produced many excellent studies and underpins collecting global knowledge on ADHD: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1525089/

              Swarte Pieter, I just remember that I’ve experienced that once, while on a business trip in NL, ages ago. I was quite surprised by it and I would have tought that it had been banned by now, just like we here in Denmark cannot sing “Little Black Sambo’

              Hi Peter,

              I can imagine you were surprised. You simply had no clue. That’s Dutch culture for you. One can dismiss it out of hand, or delve into it and perhaps learn a little more. As you obviously didn’t, let me try to remediate and educate you and sort of give you the 2 dime version of the cultural background of Zwarte Piet a.k.a Zwarte Peter. This way please..

              As his nickname “Pietje Pek” (black tar) already suggests, the traditional figure refers to the devil (he used to walk around, rattling with chains). The feast of Saint Nicholas, a Catholic saint, used to be quite rowdy in the Lowlands and during the protestant deformation, they tried to ban it. In Amsterdam, it came to a children’s revolt against the new protestant rulers and the tradition survived. Processions with Saint Nicholas were banned and the figure of the bishop survived in its devilish counter-image, which existed as “Zunderklaas”, a blackened bishop who scared the living daylights out of people. Men used to dress up like Zunderklaas and go after women, that kind of stuff.

              When Catholics were more or less allowed to practice their religion once again, the ruling class tried to transform the feast of Saint Nicholas gradually from a public happening into more of a family feast. The bishop became “saintly” again, telling children to behave and parents to look after their ilk, and handing out presents. All the while the tradition of a devilish helper had survived, not only in Holland, but all over Europe (take a look at Austria’s Zwarte Piet, the Krampus-figure: Saint and Devil). When our Saint Nicholas feast became “domesticated”, the same attempts were made in Germany. There the “Santa Klaus” figure was represented as a Turk with a helper. The helper was a slave, because of the association of Ottoman Turks with slavery. His helper was called Ruprecht, the old German name for a devil. One theory traces some features of the modernized Dutch Zwarte Piet, who was the “chained” i.e. subdued devil helper of Sinterklaas, to this German Ruprecht figure. You see the pattern here? A Christian, Catholic feast with two figures depicting a Saint and the devil he conquered. Nothing to ban here, me thinks.

              (to be continued..)

              • ADDspeaker says:

                Richard, I see and I can relate. We have a children’s book called “The Big Bastian” who was a character who went around dipping naughty children in tar. It was translated from German in 1847 (Heinrich Hoffmann (1809-94)), and my guess is that our “stories” are intermingled from the same source (and purposes).

                BTW: I was not seeing the cultural phenomena of “Zwarte Piet” negatively, I was just curious to this practise, since we do not have that in Denmark.

              (continued from 05/07/2017 at 5:23 pm)

              As kids we all learned that Zwarte Piet was black because he came down the chimney at night to put little presents in our shoes in the period leading up to the feast of Saint Nicholas on the 5/6th of December, provided we had sang our songs real loud (Sinterklaas who waited patiently on the roof was quite old, you see?) and also placed a carrot, straw and some water beside our shoes to feed the horse of Saint Nicholas (Amerigo).

              I’m afraid that in your comment, you seemed to be in a moderate stage of cultural illiteracy, accompanied by some politically correct asides, and clearly suggesting a ban on this cherished Dutch tradition. If this is indeed the case, you would be in perfect lock-step here with a tiny bunch of ignorant UN officials, CNN documentary makers, and Soros-backed agitators, seeking to somehow make this into an issue about “race”. Perhaps you’ve spent too much time in the US with its debilitating culture of SJW’s, I don’t know. So before you go on and sing the praises about ‘Cultural Understanding’ training for the Scandinavian military (that was a joke, right?), you might want to reserve some of that cultural sensitivity for Dutch tradition.
              Over here, we’ve grown pretty tired of the sort of folk who combine cultural ignorance with USA-style multicultural arrogance. I can only hope that the info I gave will go some ways to remedy the void, and solicit some modicum of respect for this Dutch cultural tradition.

              • ADDspeaker says:

                Richard, it all made sense. Yes, admitted I am very influenced by ‘my US-style PC’, but that springs not from racial or religious issues, but from my work with mental health issues, where stigma is rapant and the truth is somewhat ‘personally defined’. How many jokes about ADHD and Squirrels must I hear, before someone actually listens to my message, have been my challenge for a long time, and I used to act totally emotional and furiously re-attack everyone, anywhere for whatever reason, but I have ‘mentally matured’ (read: medicated) and now I am able to breath again.

                So, let me state this quite clearly: I am all for traditions, and I believe that people who do not have any idea of the historical origins of a culture’s tradition, should restrain from dismiss them, upfront and at face value!

                That’s why I have studied Islam’s history, simply to understand why The Caliphate is so dominant in ISIL propoganda, and why Shia and Sunni see the world so diffently. This is not from a religious perspective, at all, but from a geo-political standpoint. I do this with all subjects, where I feel out of depth, before I offer up my opinions.

                So Richard, again I believe that our cultures are very alike, and that we are tolerante both also very protective of our own (small) national traits.

          • ADDspeaker says:

            mkey, I began by supporting all the Afghan and Iraq efforts, as per Colin Powell’s UN Speech, and back then I didn’t ‘filter the news’ as I do now, but my turning point was when our former Prime minister, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, was appointed as NATO’s Secretary General in 2009.

            Rasmussen, like Blair, was a staunt spokesman for Bush (and the NeoCons) wish to go to war in Iraq and I guess that paid of, just 6 years later …

            After having researched the wars, Iraq in particular, I most come to the conclusion that our involvement was a huge mistake, overall. The only positive thing that i’ve seen from the wars, was that, unlike the US troops, all of the Scandinavian troops deployed, had extensive ‘Cultural Understanding’ training before being deployed.

            That said, I would refer to the documentary ‘Armadillo’ which paints a not so rosy picture of the Danish troops in Afghanistan and likewise to the Channel 4 documentary ‘The Heroes of Helmand’ which includes some scenes where Danish troops are fighting in Musa Qala: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Musa_Qala

            So my short answer is, I was for the wars in 2001-2003, but now that I’ve understood the massive implications to both Iraq and Afghanistan, I do not see any justifications for these operations – at all!

    Many interesting questions and worthy answers in this Q4C. Regarding the population requiring police provided by government to investigate and prevent crime, I wonder what the public did before there were police forces which are a relatively modern invention. In Britain before the rise of coppers it was considered the duty and under law for the public to answer to the ‘hue and cry’ of a criminal offense taking place. The criminal to be held until the Sheriff could take custody and the determination made as to whether a crime had been committed and a trial was needed. Of course with the effectiveness and firepower of modern weaponry this type of solution would be an absurd answer of escalating dimensions today. The solution I would hazard a guess would be to turn the tables on the criminal and catch the perpetrator off guard to make an arrest to their behaviour. Punishment if proven guilty is an entirely different matter for society as a whole to consider with restorative justice or banishment for a length of time possibilities depending on the severity of the crime committed.

    As for governments today they are really the errand boys and girls of a plutocracy that makes all the important decisions. John Titus (electrical engineer and lawyer as a combination in one person) has produced a new doc entitled “All the Plenary’s Men” at his Best Evidence web site which gives rather definitive proof under the recent BIS decree giving themselves and their listed cartel member banks universal immunity while acting in their positions as bankers. Basically taking on the Divine Right of Kings under the not too subtle threat of economic retaliation should they be prosecuted. A must view IMO.

        Ted Kaczynski, Unabomber: Guinea Pig

        It turns out that Theodore Kaczynski, a.k.a. the Unabomber, was a volunteer in mind-control experiments sponsored by the CIA at Harvard in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

        Michael Mello, author of The United States of America vs. Theodore John Kaczynski notes that at some point in his Harvard years–1958 to 1962–Kaczynski agreed to be the subject of “a psychological experiment.” Mello identifies the chief researcher for these only as a former lieutenant colonel in World War II, working for the CIA’s predecessor organization, the Office of Strategic Services. In fact, the man experimenting on the young Kaczynski was Dr. Henry Murray, who died in 1988.

        Murray became preoccupied by psychoanalysis in the 1920s, drawn to it through a fascination with Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, which he gave to Sigmund Freud, who duly made the excited diagnosis that the whale was a father figure. After spending the 1930s developing personality theory, Murray was recruited to the OSS at the start of the war, applying his theories to the selection of agents and also presumably to interrogation.

        As chairman of the Department of Social Relations at Harvard, Murray zealously prosecuted the CIA’s efforts to carry forward experiments in mind control conducted by Nazi doctors in the concentration camps. The overall program was under the control of the late Sidney Gottlieb, head of the CIA’s technical services division. Just as Harvard students were fed doses of LSD, psilocybin and other potions, so too were prisoners and many unwitting guinea pigs.

        Sometimes the results were disastrous. A dram of LSD fed by Gottlieb himself to an unwitting U.S. army officer, Frank Olson, plunged Olson into escalating psychotic episodes, which culminated in Olson’s fatal descent from an upper window in the Statler-Hilton in New York. Gottlieb was the object of a lawsuit not only by Olson’s children but also by the sister of another man, Stanley Milton Glickman, whose life had disintegrated into psychosis after being unwittingly slipped a dose of LSD by Gottlieb.

        What did Murray give Kaczynski? Did the experiment’s long-term effects help tilt him into the Unabomber’s homicidal rampages?

        The CIA’s mind experiment program was vast. How many other human time bombs were thus primed? How many of them have exploded, with the precipitating agent never identified?

    _Here’s_ where I should have put my “Questions for Corbett,” not in the YouTube version comment section. So I’ll just copy them:

    First a relevant background tale, then my questions.

    In the 1970s I purchased _How to Meditate_ by Lawrence LeShan. It sat in a bookcase for years; I’d look at it and think: “Someday I’ll get around to this.” During a recession in 1982 I became unemployed. With time on my hands, I decided to read the book. I gleaned what I could, creating a basic version of meditation, and hiked into a nearby cemetery filled with the funerary monuments of 19th Century Boston “brahmins” and others, selecting the marble steps leading from someone’s tomb to a pond (not realizing at the time whose mortal remains were in the tomb) as the place to try out meditation.

    Consciously relaxing myself, I closed my eyes and allowed my thoughts to come to a stop (this isn’t as easy as it sounds, but I had great beginner’s luck). Immediately thereafter, I was astounded to “see” (with my mind’s eye) a persistent, full-color image of a paperback book then in print entitled _Seth Speaks_ by Jane Roberts. I’d browsed another book by Ms. Roberts in a bookstore some time previously and decided it was “New Age” junk. Owing to this startling experience, however, I stopped meditating and hiked into Harvard Square (which in those long ago days was chock full of new and used bookstores), and purchased the book.

    I read it and found it very entertaining — parts of it were a bit like sci-fi — and interesting enough that I gradually purchased all of the other books in print by the same author and read them, too. (It turns out that Ms. Roberts sat in trance as “Seth” dictated the books through her mouth, her husband taking down notes for later transcription, editing, and publication. This might have put me off except that I’d previously encountered a “light trance medium” under surprising circumstances. This person offered weekly Q&A sessions with the being who spoke through him and I attended these for several months. Highly sceptical at first, I came away impressed, as that being tended to answer my questions before I voiced them, and provided excellent and often humorous answers to the questions put to it.)

    Embedded within Seth’s texts were “exercises” designed to validate the material. Once again, I thought to myself: “Someday I’ll get around to this” when I came to one, and skipped it. Eventually, however, I stopped and actually did one of these (posted here previously) and experienced a profound alteration of consciousness that lasted about three days and extended into the dream state. This experience led to my realization that the teachings in these books were more than simply “interesting.”

    Seth originated the phrase “You create your own reality,” which was turned into a mere New Age slogan as appropriated by many, usually without attribution, but Seth expounded upon this in depth in his books (and Seth began speaking through Jane in 1963, long before “New Age” became a popular — and later derogatory — term, a bit like “conspiracy theorist”).

    I used what I learned from Seth’s books and got a job. It proved very demanding, however, and Seth went on a back burner for many years, until Internet encounters brought him to my attention again in the early dot com era, but that’s a tale for some other time.

    A history buff, I’ve quite enjoyed your videos and purchased and read a number of books you’ve recommended (I’d also recommend _The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government_, by David Talbot).

    My own entree into the territory of power structures, hidden or not, began as a result of some minor “psychic” experiences RE: 9/11.

    These were too subjective for my rational self, so for many years I sought solid evidence to buttress my suspicions. I eventually found one small, hidden & definitely fact-based item, and went on from there.

    Later, I met someone who came perilously close to being murdered by some unknown government agency, in a particularly heinous — Nazi-like — way; I didn’t believe this person at first, but as details they gradually provided checked out, I began to realize that 9/11 was not at all an isolated event.

    Seth emphasizes the importance of beliefs in creating one’s reality, personal and mass. As someone who believes in both the validity of his teachings and the reality of the endless dark doings of groups and individuals associated with the power structures, I am often forced to keep my mouth shut and pretend to subscribe to “official” or “conventional” beliefs — it’s one thing to be labeled a “conspiracy theorist,” quite another to add “New Age idiot” on top of it — I do exist in the business world, after all, where neither label is particularly acceptable.

    My questions: 1. Have you ever meditated? 2. Have you ever delved into the Seth material or anything even remotely connected, say the investigations of William James as described in Deborah Blum’s _Ghost Hunters: William James and the Search for Scientific Proof of Life After Death?_ (As with topics you expound upon, there’s lots of junk in this area; wheat and chaff must be separated.)?

    #Q4C:
    Hi James,
    Recently, I downloaded the app “Constitution”, basically the US constitution for iPhone. I wanted to refresh on my rights as a US citizen (living oversees 47 years).
    It is in my opinion a very confusing text written at a time when the “founding fathers” could not even imagine where we are today. Of course, it can be interpreted to any advantage or disadvantage, depending on your attorney.
    My question is:
    The second Amendment states “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
    Since we have a standing military, the part about a militia is obviously outdated. Yet, in my understanding, a militia in the day was a necessity to ensure a revolution/change when the government went corrupt. Shouldn’t Americans fulfill thier duties as patriots now if they caress and cherish this amendment so dearly?

      I personally don’t understand your question. Are you implying that there should be (more) private militias in US because of the second amendment?

      “Since we have a standing military, the part about a militia is obviously outdated.”
      I’m not certain if you’re equating militia with military, which would be wrong in my opinion. Militia is there to serve the people, military serves the governing elite.

      Additionally, some commenters have tried to twist the wording of the seconds amendment by saying that people have rights to bear arms only while there are militias formed, during hardship.

      • LenZoo says:

        You see. That’s what I mean, it gets confusing. From my understanding, after doing some more research, militia was supposedly all “men” between 17 and 45 (?). Yet, a concrete answer to what the militia back then really was differs from site to site. Some say, and this I believed too, it was a civil duty that replaced a standing military. And others, like you mkey, say militia was there to serve the people – so not the “men” themselves.
        Obviously, todays militia has nothing to do with that from the past.
        Yet, for over two hundred years the 2nd amendment played a major role for America. It’s funny how most other countries do not really have an issue with this right and persist mostly peacefully up to day.
        Personally, I’m against gun control in an intelligent society.
        I guess we’ll have to wait.
        And if the time should come, we won’t need guns then anyway anymore.

    Something personal:
    James, Do you speak Japanese? Can you give us a sample please?

    QUESTION FOR CORBETT

    Good afternoon James. I have tried to reach you via Patreon and Twitter on this subject but have yet to hear from you. No worries of course but I’d like to ask you now in the most likely place for a response.

    I am also an SGT Report viewer. Heard about Hampstead and learned more about it. I was pretty inclined to believe it. When i became a viewer of you. I search for a video of you talking on the subject with wideshut.co.uk on The Hollie Case and Hampstead. Not familiar with Hollie whatsoever.

    I spoke with Sean about it and he said you are one of his favorites and would be shocked if you didn’t see Hampstead as valid. I linked him the video, he viewed it, i asked him if he’d talk with you on a video about it. He hasn’t gotten back to me yet. But i think that would be an awesome discussion and one that viewers would find worthwhile.

    Are you interested in being on SGT’s channel again or vice versa?
    And also, Ole Dammegard has informed me he has tried to contact you and be on your show or talk with him. He would like me to formally ask you if you’d also be interested at some point having a discussion with him on Hampstead, Gladio, false flags, chemtrails?
    Those are just topic suggestions

    I am glad to be a Patron of yours and look forward to reading your book suggestions from not just this video, but the others in your backlog. Really admire you. Have a good weekend!

      Scratch that, I spoke with Sean of SGT Report and he said he wasn’t too keen on talking about hampstead.
      So I’ll alter my question:
      Would you be interested in being on his channel again in general?
