Delusions of Democracy
Today I wanna talk about a delusional disorder that requires more attention and immediate treatment I believe. A mental disorder which I called “Delusions of Democracy”. DoD is probably the most common delusional disorder in western nations and commonly causes a serious disconnection with reality. People suffering from this disorder believe to live in a free and democratic society independently of the real nature of the system in which they live. Such people may virtually live in an Orwellian surveillance state and still believe it to be a free and democratic society. DoD in this respect is not just one of the most common but also one of the most dangerous mental disorders since the disconnection with reality is causes often provides aid to tyrants and dictatorships and their crimes. DoD by its effects blocks the way to a free and democratic society by making the mentally disconnected believe that they already live in such a society and that change is therefore unnecessary. DoD leads to apathy and confusion often paralyzing the whole society even in spite of the most outrageous tyranny and injustice. In many cases the disorder produces such a resistance to reality that even direct confrontation with facts directly contradicting the false believe of living in a fee society have no effect on the patient. DoD is probably the most serious mental disorder of our time.
The most probable cause of DoD is a combination of three main factors:
- Propaganda and Disinformation
- The tendency of the human mind to suppress what is unpleasant
As therapy for DoD I would recommend reeducation measures focused on reestablishing a connecting to reality in the patient. In persistent cases not responding to the reeducation measures an additional medication with natural cannabinoids may proof helpful.
